I'm finally freaking done! I wasn't sure if I could even pull this one off, to be honest!

The only things I can see now (the next morning) are all of the problems I should have fixed, haha. I honestly believe that I could have done better with all of the time I put in to it! Now if only I had Photoshop...

Edit: I guess it looks good enough as my background for now.

Edit2: Playing around with the lighting, I'm not so good with it right now, hehe.

If no photoshop, what programs did you use? So far I've only gotten up to a little bit of Photoshop. Most of my first year is consisting of illustration, so I only have one computer class a week.

Anywho, not bad at all. I don't recognize the character. Is all of this original work? From the ground up? (Ie. drawing the image to what we see here)

Either way this looks fantastic. And I don't think you're too bad with messing around with the lighting. But, we are our worst critics, so...I guess you would point out your flaws.

It's actually just a 3d render that I did from the ground up with Blender, not a drawing at all. I pretty much modeled Hatsune Miku and took a picture, the rendering did the rest. No, I didn't make up this character, but yes, I do love her to death.

Really, I'm not that good with the shadows, I just played around with a bunch of options not knowing what would happen and the second one just so happened to look badass! I'm starting to really appreciate my quad-core right about now, it's being pushed to its limits with this! Just rendering a single picture, depending which options I chose, could take anywhere from 5 seconds to 30 minutes.

Most of my teachers are professionals who have done some pretty famous work (Ever hear of the card game "Magic"? One of my teachers did a series of those.) so it wasn't people talking out their asses when they say things like "That's how most pieces are made. Someone just happens to love the "accident", and when that someone happens to be signing your paycheck, then your task is complete."

Haha.

I feel stupid now...I totally read your title wrong. "Hours upon hours in A Blender." I kinda added the "A" for no apparent reason. Thought you were just being silly or something.

So I have another question for you...what exactly is Blender? I've only heard of Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver, Quark, and InDesign, as far as art programs go. (Oh, and the standard "paint" thing that comes with the PC. )

It's a program that you can use to build almost anything in 3d, with the Python 2.5 and 3.0 architecture. It's actually used by many professional 3d artists worldwide and I'm sure can be used to create games, I just haven't figured out how to do it yet.

I remember a person demoing for a game college was using it to demonstrate how you get from point A to point B and that's when I tried it out. My computer at home couldn't handle it at the time but with my new rig, most of it is cake.

I'm not a big fan of 3D and Miku. You still did a really good job though =P
