I did this image for a 3dLuvr contest awhile back and was also featured in the Noir art pack #8. Prints will be available as handouts at the Noir booth at the DA convention.
praying mantis by *mantisfilm is a great example of how a talented 3D artist can capture the intricacies of even the smallest forms of life through a render. Take a look and be amazed. (
A beautiful piece of work. I am on day two of the 30 day trial period for lightwave and it is nice to see that it is indeed possbile to make something sensible in lightwave. Most tutorials seems to be for older versions and the included documentation is only a description of all the menu items.
holy shit how did you model that with suck great detail?
and how did you make it so cool!?!?
i render all my stuff with lightwave 8, but i model with a different program (wings 3D - [link]) is that my problem? should i be modelling with lightwave instead?
PLEASE GIVE ME AN ANSWER! i really want to improve my skills
