Sample text

Francisco A. Cortina I loved the way her figure and dress models were integrated together. They conveyed a sense of balance ana careful motion in both her pose and clothing. Like the first Etaine image on the earlier page, these two variations of the angel-like character also contained a nice textural balance between her soft skin and the lace-stitched outfit. Even though the images had a somewhat monochromatic tone, it helped promote a somewhat dreamy quality as well as the doll-like feeling of the characters.

Modeling and simulating a very smooth face has always been a tough challenge, yet by careful use of lighting and the accentuated lip shine it seemed to work very nicely here. Francisco A. Cortina Replicating a person's smile has always been a very difficult thing to do. The key torms and contours of the face while smiling have been nicely and softly modeled. I particularly liked the subtle squint of the eyes and shape of the lips as they stretch over the teeth.

For this piece I chose to go with traditional lighting, letting the subsurface scattering component play a larger role in illumination of the model and skin. As you can probably tell, I keep the shadow maps fairly blurry and somewhat transparent, with their sizes at around 2K. This first test didn't quite feel natural enough for me, so I have decided to continue trying different things, including rendering different light passes.
