Christmas Imperfection by DivineError Christmas Imperfection by DivineError
This poor dude, just keeps getting stabbed with random objects! Can't ever catch a break, not even on Christmas.

Turns out I did get it out before Christmas after all :D. This image is joke on my image Technical Imperfection [link] . The idea came from :iconlordflasheart:, so thanks go to him for the idea to spoof the original :nod:

Not much details need to be explained, as it is bassically the same scene as the original. If you are curious about technical aspects or how it was made, check the original. The fuz on the hat was done with Maya Fur, and the candy canes used a ramp shader which was curled by the poly extrusions twist options. The fade effect was done by duplicating the canes geometry and expanding it, then applying a fading texture to it. Here is some in progress layered shots: [link] [link] [link]

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, there is a losslessly (is that a word?) compressed PNG version here: [link]


{{edit}}
I forgot to mention, for those of you who don't go to the original image, you wouldn't see that this image is a spoof on :icondelya: 's image. Check out her website for the original inspiration of the original render which this one is a spoof on :)
