Hi everyone, just something that's bothered me for a REALLY long time.



Notice her eyelashes? They're so low they almost look like warpaint. This is a problem especially around where Nastajia finally warms up to Alex and they kiss. Maybe I'm nitpicky, but this really bothers me. Is it a mistake or are my eyes just bad?

She's an elf it's genetic. Did you think they'd be exactly identical to humans?

At leas that's my take on it.

Well yeah, but her eyelashes aren't always this way; that's kind of why it bothers me.

What bothers me is that they cast shadows. I said something about it once; Scott just likes the comic book style. /shrug

Remember...these were made in 2002/2003.
I've long looked at these models with the desire to re-work them.

Unfortunately the eyelashes are a part I can't fix without re-rigging the whole character.

And redoing all the morphs.

But I DO agree with you both.

When we do the movie...we'll update her.
Promise.

Thank you for the answer Mr. Sava, even though it is rather late. I'm glad you have noticed it at least, and that I'm not crazy.

I noticed too, but the eyelashes do not really bother me. It is the irises...buuuut enough has been discussed about that, I think.

And having to re-rig? Ugh..not fun ,if I may believe my 3d-inclined friends.

I have to admit that I really enjoy noticing the evolution of the renders through all 4 books. Most of the little niggles I had in the beginning, went away with time.

The biggest gain of newer software and hardware seems to be the shadows and lighting. It's gorgeous. I first noticed in the scenes where Nicole gets the first little letter from Felicity. I also really enjoyed the recent forest-scenes thanks to the shadowing. I'd call it "oblivionesque" and that's a compliment in my book.

It was the first game I played that had convincing shadows and lighting, especially in the forests.

During the evolution of lighting in Dreamland, I realized how fundamentally a scene gets influenced by shadows..simply..shadows... Textures come alive, objects get true volume etc. etc.

I did a directing-course once, but the lighting-bit bored me to no end. Now, finally, I can see the points of our tutor..

Kudos to Scott here!
