Rip This by DivineError Rip This by DivineError
I dare you to rip this image. In fact, I want you to. Do it to show yourself how pathetic you really are. Show it to all your friends, claim you made it. Spam it to hundreds of wallpaper websites without giving them my contact info. C'mon, you know you want to.

Due to recent piracy problems I felt the need to make this image. More than one person has made profit from images that I gladly share for free, and it's getting on my nerves. All I ask is that people do not sell my images, and link to my original DA pages as credit to me and `delya, but apparently some people don't have that respect. If you ever see this image anywhere without a link to my user page ([link]), I give you permission to go Hulk Smash their asses.

Based off a drawing by :icondelya:, which you can find HERE. You can find a .gif comparing the two HERE.

Make of it what you will.

Technical Details</u>

Made in Maya, rendered in Mental Ray 3.4. Lit with bright objects and final gathering only, no lights. Every surface in the scene is a custom written shader except for the ground object, which is a Maya Blinn shader. The shader on the skin is similar to the one I wrote for Love Juice and Shake Your Booty, except this time I started from the ground up and redid it. Modeled mostly with polygons then converted to subdivision surfaces later for more detail control, then converted back to polygons for rendering. The only part that is NURBS is the paint cans, which needed to be NURBS so the shader I used could do anisotropic reflection blurring (similar to the way a DGS shader does). The paintbrushes used real geometry for the brush hairs, which totalled out at about 500,000 polygons for each brush. Why would I do that? Well, I ask you, why not :lol: Pushing ridiculous boundaries that I don't have to in teh first palce is what I'm all about!

Anyways, on to the pictures:

Here's a couple screenshots from inside the maya viewport: Paint, more paint, splattery.

Here's a couple detail shots of the brushes, so you can see all the crazy geometry detail: EXTREEEEME!, Top

Here's a wireframe shot of his head: Wireframe

Here's the lighting setup: Light Boxes

Here's teh render layers: The Dude, Brushes, The Background

And look at this, IT HAS AN ASS!!: ASS!

And for those of you who see banding from the jpg compression, here is a .png version: HERE

Agree, this happens to me too. Often also frustrated to find amazing images and not able to find the artist :( Hmmm maybe opportunity to develop some sort of credit on images that integrates well and doesn't take away:)?

I posted this on a differnt comment but this seemed an even more appropriate page to comment this on:

divine error, I am a huge fan of your artwork. You should know that there is a website using one of your images to promote illegal prescription drug sales. While searching online for legitimate pain clinics I stumbled upon this illegal operation using your artwork presumably without your permission: [link] I saw your image is located on the front page as an advert for illicitly sold percocets.

Dude, it's really really frustrating seeing people using your art. Big companies here in my country are using it. I don't know if this can be stopped but it should.
tifus Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2010
It takes me decades to found your DA Profile ! Your pictures were on my hard disk from now 6 years and I never found the author ! You should also put a link or a name on the bottom of the images !

Above all, very nice work ! It's really great ^^

Just Letting you know That the Gif You Link'd to is Missing the Bristles from the Brushes on your picture (maybe a Layer issue?).

And I Friggen Hate art theft.

Man I bought a book on maya and had a ripped version of that program... I must say your PC has some Major Balls To pull Sik stuff like that together... I am extremely impressed and think Pixar should be kicked in the nuts for not getting ahold of you... They pay a ton of dough for lame ass stuff they throw in movies instead of picking someone like you up and letting your imagination donkey punch them in the head... Nurb is it... He is so Killer..

I understand this completely. I dare not steal art and say it's my own. I GIVE EFFORT INTO MY DRAWINGS. Others have no patience in doing their work. :\ So they steal. They have too much damn pride to THINK about what will happen afterwords. Which is getting banned. I see it all the time. I just hope I'll never get any of my artwork stolen. That's too good to be true though. They have the stinkin' exuse of "oh I can't even draw a circle right,"or "I can't draw a straight line, teeeeeach meeeee." Ugh. I swear they don't even try. :\ That's why I actually put watermarks on my art. You can never trust the internet anymore. D: Whatcha gonna do. Some people are idiots to think they can get away with this shit. From now on I'm gonna report stolen art but before I do so I'm gonna make sure it ain't. IF that art stealer begs me not to report I have aaaaall the better reason to. I will also gladly kick their asses to the far side of the earth if I ever find any person that steals art from you. You should get respect because your art is amazing. The 3D effects are absolutly amazing. Even now, even if it was made in 2005 it's still amzing for old art. I simply respect you. :]
