A Bedroom Study

Hi everyone. I did this scene from a photo, though the only things faithful to the photo are the headboard, lamp and flower vase. It was a good experiment with sub-surface scattering (the lamp and lampshade) and I tried my hand at creating a bitmap (the flower petals). I rendered this with Arion for Max for 4 hours at 4000×3300 pixels. The only Photoshop is to down-sample the image to 1000×825 pixels.

The New Adobe

Does anyone else feel uncomfortable with the new Adobe CC pricing/subscription scheme? I upgrade Photoshop about every four years and I feel like I will be paying more per month for something I don’t really need. I have to do more research on their Cloud format, because my initial reaction to it is negative.

Since I’ve just upgraded my CS5 to CS6, I think I won’t have to worry about it for the next few years, but I wanted other people’s input on this issue.

RandomControl, makers of Arion and Max LIVE have announced the release of Rhino LIVE, fully-integrated Arion for Rhinoceros 3D. In my testing, I’ve  found Rhino LIVE to be rock-solid and a pleasure to use. I’m very happy for all of the patient and persistent Rhinoserati out there – you are going to really like this.
