Judas by Cei-Ellem Judas by Cei-Ellem
PLEASE READ THIS DESCRIPTION

UPDATE: Since no one's guessing, I'll tell you how long it took to render. 1 day, 20 hours, 56 minutes, and 1 second.

This took me so long to complete! It took me three attempts to get the image to render. The first time I tried, I had too many lights in the scene (85 O_o! ), so after running for one day, ten hours, and fifty-one minutes, it was only 3% complete. Needless to say, I scrapped it and made some changes. This version has only 8 lights and rendered much faster.

Anywho, this is my second entry in the Seventh Sanctum Monster Madness Contest. Using the Vampire Generator, I got the following description:

This confused male vampire has slitted brown eyes that are like two tiger-eye gems. His luxurious, curly, medium-length hair is the color of obsidian, and is worn in an artistic, exotic style. He's got a small beard. He has a lean build. His skin is deeply-tanned. He has high cheekbones and thin lips. He doesn't suffer from standard vampiric disabilities. His diet requires blood of any kind. His outfits are those of a laborer.

The first thought that came to mind was "Oh my goddess! It's Judas!", espescially the confused part. Judas is the main character in Salvation, a short story I wrote and published. I think I may rewrite and republish it, since the first edition sold so poorly (I didn't even sell enough copies to make a commission T_T ).

And yes, that is the Bible at his feet

Made in DAZ|Studio, rendered in POV-Ray, and touched up in Photoshop.

Wow! That is very well done! All that "1 day, 20 hours, 56 minutes, and 1 second" really paid off! I like "His luxurious, curly, medium-length hair is the color of obsidian, and is worn in an artistic, exotic style”, very nice graphic detail. Good job on the stairs, very realistic. ^^

My question is, did you do the generator before or after creating Judas? If so, that must be one amazing program to figure out how to make a description based on your work! Hee hee. ^^

That's really neat you were able to recognize this character with your book "Salvation", too! ^^P

Great job once again, Cei-Ellem!

I wrote the story with Judas in it before I used the generator, and it was completely random that it worked out like that. ^^;

Thanks

It's the lighting environment, and that was the reason it took so long to render >_<. Thanks ^_^
