Created by a more than 20 years VFX and 3D animation industry veteran.
Photo-realistic model of a ladybug suitable for extreme close up. All renders and shaders done in V-Ray. I also have for sale here a previous version of a ladybug that was less detailed (see my other items).
Fur done with Ornatrix. You can use the free demo version to render but you need to buy the Ornatrix plugin by Ephere to modify the fur and save the scene. Density and thickness of fur is controlled by maps.
The polygon count is without the fur.
This scene also needs the free open source Bercon noise that you can download on github, just seach on Google for: BerconMaps dll github
Included is a high quality HDR 360 degree image (105CremPatioFeuille4K.exr: 4092 x 2046) for environment reflection that you can also use for other projects.
V-Ray elements are setup to provide all the passes to make a realistic compositing. Occlusion, Zdepth and RGB masks.
Real world scale units: cm
The following render elements are setup, you just need to activate the render elements: ZDepth. Occlusion (VRayExtraTex) and Multimattes (RGB masks).
The parts named Elytron and Pronotum use SSS (Translucency) in their base material, you can accelerate the render by turning the translucencies off.
You can accelerate the render also by reducing the texture resolution of the 8k ones when you don't need an extreme close-up.
2 poses are included: with the shell closed, wings folded and with the shell open, wings deployed.
Shader: this scene uses an osl shader that is included along with the texture (it a file with a .osl extension). In the V-Ray material for the eyes.
Here is a maxscript to open the shell and unhide the wings: $helper_PointElytRRotCurrent.transform = $helper_PointElytRRotOpen.transform $helper_PointElytLRotCurrent.transform = $helper_PointElytLRotOpen.transform unhide $Ladybug_wings
And to revert to shell closed pose and hide the wings: $helper_PointElytLRotCurrent.transform = $helper_PointElytLRotClosed.transform $helper_PointElytRRotCurrent.transform = $helper_PointElytRRotClosed.transform hide $Ladybug_wings
