Pen and Bullet are back

Two years ago a started a project to create an 3D Action Comic with two main characters called Pen and Bullet.

Or better Pen and Bullet are the shortnames of em.

More Infos in my old post for that here : http://subwaytotatooine.de/?p=667

As one of my personal achievemenst for 2017 i want to bring this project a huge step forward. Can i finish it ? I do not know.
It is a lot of work that comes with that. Hundreds of pictures are need to be rendered. Scenes have to be created and reworked. Characters have to be created. Dailogs needs to be written.
Especially the Story part will be my weak point 🙂
But anyhow. I started with reworking the characters as G3 now.
Switched from Octane to Iray. So i need to rework or better remaster all the existing scenes.
Here are some of my work as samples :

New Render PC almost finished

More and more my new render-pc is close to complete.

My new render-pc is setup to DAZ Studio with plugin and Octane Render Engine by Nvidia. Even if i am usually an ATI/AMD Fanboy 🙂

But who cares – there is nothing on AMD site what can compare to this render engine.

When the new pc is complete it will be :

1x Intel CPU i7 3770k

2x 8GB RAM Corsair

1x NVidia GTX780 with 6GB RAM (ordered)

 

Right now a alread played around with my actual card GTX650 with 2 GB RAM. Octane needs to have all textures and materials n vram memory of the card. So 2Gb is really a hard limit and reached very fast.

The DAZ Plugin from otoy has some nice features to resize the textures what help a bit but resize to much result in unsharp textures  – so handle with care.

Here are some of my first results :
