So I am still trying to get better at compositing. Nice thing about teaching is that I can try out techniques as in class demos.

The assignment was to take the zbrush character the students had been working on and render it as a statue into a background plate with HDR lighting. They made their own custom probes and background plates. Here are two renders from the demo. The model is by Joseph Huggins.

Oh hey look, another Houdini newb

This is how I feel trying to learn Houdini. It took far longer than it should have to render this. Hey, at least NOW I know where the shadow sample settngs are! :-/

The character is a prebuilt rig and this was rendered using one area light, and one environment light / IBL with Houdini 10 Apprentice.
