Ken Gilliland's Products In Renders


I think I will call him Kenny the Kenguin. :)

I forgot to add in my last post that I rendered it in Octane. Does anyone else using Octane find the Poser bump settings need to be upped quite a lot in Octane for it to be visible?

Morning grouch Fjordland Penguin, doesn't like being photographed at sunrise.


The snow blocks are the same ones I made in ZBrush for my earlier Penguin post. I just played with the opacity here to make them look more like snow than ice cubes. :)
Rendered in Octane for just under four minutes. I'd have left it cooking longer but it's gone midnight here and I have to get some sleep.
