Ok, after a few hours of work I'm mostly done with the geometry. Thomas is 1006 tris, Guy is 1020.

they look shorter on the photo, the 3d models look a bit stretched in their height. The first characters trouser in the picture appears to form a slight cone down to the feet, yours appears to go straight. Here is what I mean:
The uv map most likely can be mirrored and using overlapping UV shells to save texture space.

Thanks for the paintover renderhjs. I made the necessary and subtle but important changes to the mesh and started on the texture. Here's what I've got so far.

Haha cool...you know, you even matched the style of the original reference with that "more-swiggily-yet-still-tron-like" deal. Cool stuff man. Now just to give the illuminance!

So I know obviously we can't use normal maps but can we soften normals on the whole mesh? I don't mind either way but it makes a noticeable difference with how the specular map acts.
11-17-2010, 05:11 PM
Yes, you are allowed to smooth the normals on the mesh. Having hard edges on your mesh so it looks all faceted would indeed give you undesireable results :P

I thought there would be no shading aka lit or difuse colors only which would make the shading useless anyway.

Reading over the rules hawken specified, there was no mention of 100% illuminated colour maps. Specular maps are permitted as well, so I would assume the soft/hard edges would be somewhat relevant to get them to display right.

Rigged, now I just need to work on the presentation.

Daft Punk in Tron is the best thing ever, and the models look great :D
11-20-2010, 11:04 AM
Looking awesome :D

Might I offer a small suggestion
just take your glowing lines layer duplicate it and make it a lighter blue, put it at the top. Then take your original layer blur it, set it to screen and duplicate it a few times
other than that it's looking stylish

Fucking brilliant. I've been banging my head against the wall of trying to get something going for the Dominance Warmups but I can't possibly ignore something this quickly gratifying. Worked like a charm.
Thanks for the crits and comments everybody.

I decided to get back to work on this before I miss the deadline. I'm thinking of making a DJ Hero-esque in-game shot. Stupidly enough I actually spent a minute or so wondering if/how I should go about labeling Daft Punk in this scene.

maybe a bit of Specularity to pull out the black forms?
12-11-2010, 12:29 PM
How's this? I bumped up the specular, made the background texture it's own ambient map and added another layer to the floor. Too subtle?
12-12-2010, 02:10 AM
Not all that noticeable TBH
Maybe lighten the background?
12-12-2010, 04:01 PM
Agreed with Hawken, BG is too dark right now, just bright it up a bit and we will read perfectly their both silhouettes ;)

really hard to make out the figure. suggest either adding lots of specularity to them ,or making your background something other than black.
black on black is hard to read.

Just a little thing really, but I think you need to raise the daft punk up a bit. The middle of the loop on 'd' needs to be at the armpit level.
12-20-2010, 10:58 PM
I'm digging this. I recommend experimenting with painting in some detail on the clothing (seams etc.) following the color of the glow. Take a look at the original photo, you can see their belts and stuff. Should really help bring them out from the dark background as well.

Edit: Welp, nevermind. I guess Maya's Hardware rendering can't do the things I was hoping.
