Cinema 4d 9.5 + AR 2.5 & Photoshop for DOF
For those of you who know anything about football (soccer for all you americans
) you'll notice its a 2006 Premier League ball (answers on a postcard for who manufactured it!) When i started this morning I wanted to do an addidas world cup ball but it's not the easiest to model........believe me!
So I settled for the Premiership ball cos I have one here in my room with me, also they are easier to make (buckyball and lots of interesting bevels, inner extrudes and deformations)
The GRASS on this image is 5034 x 5034 and comprises of 7 different stock images of grass and mud, each image used 1 -3 times, compped together in PS and then i did the white lines myself using soft light and colour blending modes plus some grunge brushes on layer masks......took me 3 1/2 hours for just all that!! The grass was 31 Layers
and 534MB PSD document!!
I WOULD LIKE TO WISH ALL THE COUTRIES COMPETING IN THE WORLD CUP GOOD LUCK, EXCEPT ENGLAND, COS WE DONT NEED LUCK, WE NEED A MIRACLE!!
Took into account the crits I recieved from both here and renderosity, made the ball dirty to please the masses, spent a further 3 hours re-texturing so I hope it looks better now...........
As for the displacement, i actually used a dis map right at the start of this image, i ditched it because it lost the realism out of the render so thanks for the comments but trust my judgement, it looks better without
