    Not the first robots/androids I've seen playing chess, but certainly a wonderful image.

    This is amazing! Was this done in a 3D program?

      Yes, This was done in Poser Pro 2012 (by Smith Micro). It has a decent rendering engine, plus a wide community of users and content.

      Poser isn't exactly cheap, but it's a lot less expensive than programs like 3D Studio, Maya, Lightwave or C4D. PLus, they sometimes offer deals. There are two versions, Poser 9, and Poser Pro 2012. 9 is the cheaper of the two, but it has a few less features.

      Is Maya supposed to be one of the best?

      Um...supposed to be, but I think it's really open to debate. As far as I know, Maya is favoured for film work, and Studio Max is often the choice for gaming studios. I've seen C4D stuff, and it looks fantastic as well. But any of those will produce fantastic results if you know what you're doing. I'd love to get my mitts on any one of them, but they all have 4 figure price tags.

      Dang, $3,000? I have a friend who owns Maya, it's cool for movies. Makes everything easier.

      $3000 or more, I haven't checked in a while. At one time 3D Studio was $5000 here in Canada, and C4D was $4000. Lightwave is only around $1400, and Zbrush is $700. (cool program and very different in operation.)

      There's also Blender, free, but it has a learning curve that goes straight up if you catch my drift.

      Lolz, so much money for things nowadays. A Cintique could be bought for that much.

      That's the one I have! It's better than my old one, it's twice the size and I don't have to go hunting for AAAA batteries. Still...drawing on a tablet feels weird, I prefer drawinhg on good old fashioned paper.

      I know what you mean. I'm really good at traditional art, so I'm wanting a Cintiq so I can be just as good at digital. But the thing costs SO much money.

      Yeah, and Photoshop CS6 is really good right now, but that costs even MORE money. $_$

      Just to outfit a decent rendering machine is $3000, add on a ciniq and Adobe and the price is redonculous! If I was selling poser content, then I could justify it as a long term expense, but not otherwise.

      About $7,700 with tax for the rendering, the Cintiq Touch and Photoshop CS6. That's wonderful *rolls eyes* now if it was affordable and not cost the amount of a used car; it would be fine.

      Yup, that's about what I had my system priced out at here. Heck you can get a fairly decent pc for what a cintiq costs.

      You're welcome .. stonemason really makes awesome work .. what kinda light do you use for this render in poser

      Hmmm....I fiddled with some IDL lighting and atmospherics to give it a bit of a hazy look. The main light is basically a bright white infinite light, set to 90% and a specular light, that's it. I think [?] the atmosphere is from one of Vikike's sets from rendo that I modified. My render settings were fairly high, IDL quality at 60%, but irradiance was only 32%, and raytrace bounces were only set at 2, I usually have them higher for a scene with any reflective materials.

      oki doki .. like the light setting in this one .. looks really great and sharp

      Yup...only the 2 lights in that scene...I had to open it to check lol. Both the infinite and the specular are set high and to right. I never even used an idl sphere. Heh, I quess less is more.
