The 3DCheapskate's Unreal Imperfect Pictures
This is a selection of the images I've created using various 3D software. No explanations, no credits - just teasers/thumbnails and links to the full-size pictures hosted here on my own website.
All of these pictures (and more) have been uploaded to my galleries at ShareCG, Renderosity, DeviantArt, DAZ3D and HiveWire3D and you'll find more explanations and all the necessary credits there. I'd definitely recommend taking a look at some of those galleries. Why?
- I sometimes upload additional variants of a picture to my ShareCG gallery (and sometimes I sneak extra pictures onto old pages without telling anybody...)
- The Renderosity gallery has a lot more banter (some might call it waffle).
- The DAZ3D and HiveWire3D galleries are PG-13 friendly, and thus a good option for those of a weaker constitution who can't handle the dreaded 'G' and 'N' word in pictures - GNomes! Just kidding, I of course refer to Gruesome Gratuitous Gore and Naughty Naked Nudity! But the G is limited to what I'd term 'realistic bloodshed' and the 'N' is limited to 'artistic nudity' (although the more colloquial/vulgar 'tits'n'bums' would probably fit too).
Naught Naked Nudity And Gruesome Gratuitous Gore
For those of you who are easily offended and/or have weak constitutions I've used helpful little yellow triangle icons whose meaning should be obvious. Please your own common sense (assuming you have some) before clicking on those links! AAt present clicking on these links will just open the thumbnail with the warning icons in a new window. To view the full image you'll have to take a look at my gallery on ShareCG, Renderosity or DeviantArt.
- The nudity in my pictures is limited to what could be termed 'artistic nudity' (although the more colloquial/vulgar 'tits'n'bums' would probably fit too).
- The gore/violence is restricted to what I'd call 'realistic bloodshed'.
That little image in the top-left of my website (well, it's probably only on this page at present, but I'll be putting it on all of them at some point) is a random selection of 93 x 93 teaser images. If you got here by clicking on that little 'teaser icon' then you can should find the teaser that teased you below. They're all crops from the original image, and some are resized. Click on any of them to open the full-size image in a new tab. N.B. Some of them are rather large files - but if you hover over a thumbnail it should tell you the size, so you can decide whether it's too big before clicking.
Alternatively if you'd like to see thumbnails of the complete images (more or less) then scroll down the page) to the 'Thumbnail Links' section.
The thumbnails below are more representative of the original image. I've simply taken taken the largest square crop I can from the image and reduced it to 100 x 100.
Basically do whatever you like with these pictures. Download them, print them, use them for origami, whatever takes your fancy. Credit is appreciated, but not required. Example:
"That's fancy paper you've got your fish and chips wrapped in, where'd you get it?"
"I downloaded it from this great website - err... can't recall the name though. It had something to do with fish though? Cod, no halibut? No, skate! That was it cheap skate!"
(Warning: I'd prefer it if you didn't pass any of this off as your own work though. A powerful charm has been placed on it - within 13 days of making such a false claim you'll get a telephone call. There'll be nobody on the other end. By the time you realize it will be too late - the fey spirit of darkness will have entered your body through your ear, and will be searching for a nice place inside to start unrendering you. Very slowly."
Why Are The Images Such Strange Sizes?
Why not? I tried using the Golden Ratio (1:1.618) but it didn't improve my pictures. The Radium Ratio has turned out quite nicely, but with the exponential decay of height and width during a render I can never be certain of the final dimensions.
