For this second Renderman Challenge “The Rolling Teapot”, we got to work with a model developed by Brice Laville Saint-Martin, and designed by Tom Robinson, which providing us with a production-quality scene to showcase our shading, lighting, rendering and compositing skills. Using RenderMan’s holdout workflow in order to create a realistic and compelling composite of the Rolling Teapot. Again, a great opportunity to test our custom renderman shader we developed together with Christos Obretenov from Lollipop. The theme of the […]
The first Renderman Challenge ‘Kitchen Sink’ gave us the perfect setting to test our custom renderman shader we developed together with Christos Obretenov from Lollipop. We are combining occlusion with hand drawn textures and diffuse rendering. For this test, we didn’t want to just render an image, so we created a proper background story.

What better way to get a good sense of size and shape by making a clay model of Nonna and the dog. We will make two models of Nonna. Here you see the overall model. Perfect to test Nonna’s shape and size but with less detail in e.g. het face. We are busy making a second clay model of only her head, so we can really create every wrinkle and characteristic of her face.
Nonna is an older Italian grandmother, but what should she look like? How does her size and shape relate to that of the dog? Helen van Vliet made some studies of Nonna’s appearance. [one_half] [/one_half] [one_half_last] [/one_half_last]
