Wanted to share with you a commission I did last week. These two were extremely fun to set up, though they were disappointing to render. I gotta be honest; the more I work in Octane, the more disenchanted I become with it. The developers boast the unique ability of the GPU renderer to make changes on-the-fly and see the results real-time. While this is somewhat true, the thing they don’t tell you is that a scene with only a moderate complexity will bring even the strongest PC to its knees, making it virtually impossible to control your mouse enough to hover over the ‘pause’ button to make changes. If/When your PC checks back from rendering to give enough control to move your mouse, it lasts for possibly one second, then is gone again. The developers point out that the ‘solution’ for this is a 2nd GPU to offload all non-rendering computer tasks. I don’t know about you, but a ‘solution’ that requires I buy more hardware (also after I’ve invested $600 just weeks ago on a new 4 GB vidcard) isn’t a ‘solution’ at all. I shouldn’t need
Yes, I’m fine. Don’t worry about me. I just picked up a large number of very high quality HDR images and felt like taking them for a spin in Octane. This scene, depicting a hapless maid forced to pleasure her master, was rendered with one HDR image lighting the whole scene. The HDR image was of an evening sky. I added one ‘sweetener’ light emitter for mood, and color corrected the image in Photoshop. Total render took 5 hours.
Hope you enjoy!
EDIT: If you stopped by yesterday and happened to download this image for your own personal enjoyment, download it again, as this version was rendered to maximum Ms/px. The previous one was not.
In between frames of Dark Rift, I like to do other images to share with you that I render in Octane. This one was partially finished (I didn’t render it out to the maximum samples/pixel that Octane allows), and I saved it at around 9,000 samples. Thank God I did, because I left it then to render out to the max 12,000, left the house to attend a whiskey tasting, came back home (very drunk), and went to bed.
When I woke up the next morning, the microwave and stove clocks were both blinking. I realized the power went out. Immediately, my heart sank. I realized the render that had completed but wasn’t saved was lost. Four hours of work down the drain. At least in Poser Pro 2012, finished renders are automatically stored in a temporary folder. Too bad Octane’s plugin for Poser doesn’t have that feature.
At any rate, this is an ‘almost finished’ version of the picture. As you can see, few ladies can suck a dick and yet somehow look as innocent as Kendra. It is a rare gift, indeed. She looks up at you with a timidness and frailty in her eyes as she gobbles your dick down with both hands, and you lose yourself in the rapture…
I know you’re all shocked by this unexpected news, but rest assured that I am working hard on it and am eager to finish. After all this time, I’m only now finally getting to the first of the sex scenes in this comic!
Anyway, I thought I’d do a render or two of Polly, since many of you have commented that you’d like to see her while you wait for the first episode of Dark Rift. So here’s two renders, from two different angles, of Polly and Jester. Personally, I enjoy the back angle more. These were both rendered in Octane in under 30 minutes.
Stay tuned in the next week for actual frames from the comic, to give you all a taste of what to expect from the new series.
