Wine Glass by Jim-Zombie
Wine Glass
Modeled and rendered in Lightwave with some PS post-render love.
Corner Bar by Jim-Zombie
Corner Bar
Something I worked on for a group assessment. This was my little section of an environment modeled to import into Unreal Engine 4. See fly-through Modeled with a mix of Maya (learning as part of course) and Lightwave (my go-to), rendered in Lightwave. Not sure what's going on with the transparency occlusion on the glass.
Iray by Jim-Zombie
Some Iray tests with post in PS. I left the middle image to render to 91% convergence (about 20 hours) but image was fine other than minor noise in darker areas after reaching about 70% (which was probably less than 8 hours) @ 819x1080. Rendered with pure CPU on 3.5 cores (7 threads).
Tree by Jim-Zombie
Making strange pseudo tree things. Procedural textures with hypervoxels for "leaves". Modeled and rendered with LightWave 11.6

JimZombie (Jim Willey) was long time dedicated to the art of creative fiction when a chance encounter with DAZ Studio at the end of 2011 changed everything. What started with what seemed like a simple way to put basic graphic novels together quickly spiralled into a deeper obsession that would unseat writing as his primary creative outlet. He is just at the beginning of his 3D journey and sees many challenges ahead, but hopes to one day be a 3D adept.

Check out DigiSprawl (Jim's all things DAZ/Poser/LightWave/Misc 3D blog) :)


I've been putting off working on my animation assessment and instead been playing around with DAZ Studio's latest addition, Iray. As a fan of unbiased rendering engines it is very exciting to have this new tool in DAZ Studio. I put an article together for DigiSprawl giving my first impressions, a brief overview of how to use it and comparison with LuxRender.

In this test I configured Iray's uber shader for a complex translucent/SSS surface. Rendered to 5000 samples taking about 9 hours on 7 threads (i7 4770). Still very noisy, but given the lighting conditions and material this is not unexpected.
