Catch of his life by damir-g-martin Catch of his life by damir-g-martin
This promotional image is created under the hood of Urban Monk, an expanding cgi studio located in Manly, Australia that I work for.
Octopus creature modeled in zbrush , rendered in 3ds max, and composited in photoshop.
Photoshop was the main workhorse behind this image as it includes loads of compositing and digital painting techniques (water splashes, some waves)
I was unsure where to post it, but, the subject, octopus is 3d, that\'s why I chose 3d section.
Background image author, flicker user snuff73.

C&C welcomed

Hi. Sorry for the late reply, just saw your post. Do you mean price for an octapod or something else?

No, I just wonder how much is actually a 3D Model and how much is photo.

Kraken is 3d, everything else is photo/matte paint 2d.

Awesome job on sculpting the octopus and then composing it. The sense of scale is epic, and the water
effects are flawless. Amazing work!!

Octopus love~

Seriously, though, this is amazing. Did you use MentalRay, VRay, or another render engine that I am unaware of for Max? :lol:

This is awesome!! I always like 3D art with 2D photo and thats what I tend to make most of the time. I am a 3D artist as well but maybe a bit less experience than you in Modeling and Zbrush ;)

Check out some of my work here [link] and leave comment if you like

Fishing vessel has been dragged out from the open sea, and the captain doesn't surrender, unlike sailors who bailed in the last moment :D
