OH WOW that is really AMAZING work!! I am used to seeing the suit in its brighter Anime colors but this Gunmetal look is outstanding. The pose is really adds to the overall feel of the image. Glad you liked the suit, it works well with your style work. I look forward to seeing it what else you do with it!
I tried to use SLG for this scene and it went to 30,000 passes and still was looking grainy so I made some adjustments and used lux 1.0 and it took about 6 hours for me to get this result. I'm only running a quad core computer with 16GB of ram
same here. Quad core 3.5 with 16Gb (but I'm guessing you have more than 1Gb of video ram...all I have so GPU Rendering is not fully effective.) .Gotta love the speed of rendering with 'beasts' like this. now if only I had your skill at post work I'd be in there slicker than snot.
I love my computer now I upgraded it about a month and now I can add more details into the background with slowing everything down. I don't use any postwork other than to put my tag on the picture. Everything is done by making adjustments in Reality. I am learning how to manipulate it to do what I want....it can be tricky sometimes too.
