This is only partially Verve, but I wanted to upload it because I've enjoyed it so much. I "painted" a colorful piece in Verve, took it into my 3D software & made a simple picture frame for it in a simple 3D space. I repeated the render et al then my daughter finished her acting camp as the Red Queen from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland so I put her in the foreground of the final render, then took it back into Verve with Fluidity maximum & drying disabled to experiment w/a little integration.

I'm still learning all this, but the similarities and sharp contrasts between ray traced reflection/refraction/shadow rendering, and the beautiful possibilities of Verve's particle system based approach just blows my mind. I'm beside myself.

Here's me. --> and here's me.

Thank you so much for making it available Taron.

Re: Love the shaders!!!

Thank you, borjonx, that is an appealing combination indeed! c:! Besides, what a beautiful daughter you have! :o Congratulations! :)
I've recently started playing with ShaderToy online, which inspires me to goof around some more with this, maybe adding some experimental stuff to Verve again, too! :hyper:
Anyway... great stuff, beautiful color choices all around and what a girl! :D

Re: Love the shaders!!!

congrats borjonx
great composition, I like the way you kinda reflected the picture backwards many times.
btw exporting a Verve painting into a 3D app can be done using the displacement render,
I would suggest looking how rcpongo did it. Though this particular way is very interesting
I mean the way you brought back and forth your verve painting and paint over it many times.
Didn't you missed loosing some of the texture?
congrats again.

Re: Love the shaders!!!

I replaced the image above w/the finished one - it's basically the same but includes a couple tweaks & the acting co's logo. As far as losing some texture - I didn't explain very well. I first painted that bright orange/pinkish painting in Verve, then I put it in the left picture frame in my 3D world. In the right picture frame I put this Verve piece: https://www.taron.de/forum/download/file.php?id=2719 and threw in some hollow crystal spheres (just for reflection/refraction/specularity, etc) and rendered that out in Lightwave3D w/ray recursion = 16. Then I took that rendered piece & used it in the right picture frame & rendered again, repeating.

Then for the final render I put Avalon(the Red Queen) into the scene & rendered one last time in Lightwave. The funny thing about that method is that since she's actually in the physical scene, her reflections are picked up in the 5 spheres in that scene, but not any of the previously rendered scene spheres (in the right picture frame).

Then I took that final render back into Verve & painted a little with no drying, max fluidity, lots of buildup (LOVE THE 3D BUILD-UP TARON!!!) etc. I'm also using SHIFT more & more to just push paint around; that in itself is an empowering painting technique. The trippy part of that final Verve paint/push session was realizing how smooth the lower left sphere could be drawn out to veins, like roots from a tree.

Re: Love the shaders!!!

I am not a good artist like you all, but I LOVE Verve Painter, and especially the various 3D physics/particle system/shading, etc. effects(and everything else about it; except Ctrl Z [nyuck nyuck]). I've been throwing random Alaska photos/videos and Verve snippets into a bucket and trying to sync them to Ableton Live grains recently.

btw - when you tap with bias on the branches at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBO2hNv_tTE?t=1792 my brush is always a circle; changing bias doesn't seem to affect the brush shape - does that depend on the pen/tablet? I'm on an old Wacom Graphire3 CTE-630 - everything else works w/the pen except spin/rotate & tilt.

As always - thank you so much Taron for making this amazing software available & free. IT IS AWESOME!!!!!

Re: Love the shaders!!!

Hey, borjonx, yeah, it's way too much fun, isn't it!? :hyper:
Bias reacts very much to the pen tilt and I can't quite tell how it responds to recognizing a pen, but not getting tilt. Somehow I didn't think of that, hmmm... I must have a look again. Well, as much as you enjoy Verve, you should consider getting a used Wacom Intuos or so, it's well worth it! :ob

You're very welcome, my friend!

However, the next version can no longer be free, because I can't afford it anymore and people generally don't understand to give anything, unless they have to. But I will keep the old version online for free as I have always promised. After that I can only pray and hope it will save us.
