blender/yafray picture :)


I was making some artwork in blender using the yafray raytracing rengine. I thought I would share my work with some of you people.
Here is a render I just did of a golden ring next to a diamond. Pretty cool hu

That's awesome! You seem to be an expert Can you give me some tips

Blender is an excellent 3d software and the best part is that it's free.

Here's the blender gallery with some amazing pics!

Thanks Harishankar!

Actually I am no where near being an expert. Made the golden ring by following a tutorial on the blender website. But the diamond is mine. Well.... I read some tips on the internet.

I made the usual gingerbread man. Didn't follow instructions though but it still comes out well.

Actually Blender has become more user friendly since version 1.x and that makes it a lot easier.

How do you get it so shiny?

Do you have yafray installed? If so, follow this tutorial to get the golden ring.
The diamond was hard to make. First, I looked up how a well cut diamond should look like. Found it on wikipedia . You can have my diamond file if you like. Look at the settings and stuff. You can find it here.
Have fun!

I installed Yafray and I actually got that shiny effect. Cool renderer. Much better output than the internal blender renderer. Thanks for introducing me to Yafray!

Here's my attempt at a golden ring with Blender and Yafray! I followed the tutorial, but not blindly and did some slight tweaks here and there.

Here it is!

Here is an improved version with a small semi-precious stone.

Whoa, very nice! Hey could you do us a favor and post the project file for that (edit: is the .blend file everything)? I'd love to sit down and learn Blender but haven't had the time. Having a few sample projects already built would help me come up to speed more quickly.

(the UI is what throws me. I'm very familiar with Truespace and Bryce and slightly familiar with Maya - the workflow in Blender seems totally different)

Kimvette, I've done a few as well. Blender is really intuitive. Not user friendly at first go, but it's editing features are very intuitive and quite solid. Feature rich too!

There are also a lot of tutorials and samples available on the internet. I found quite a few on the official blender site as well as the yafray site.
