CGPINUPS

Enter the world of 3D Pinups!
In order to superimpose a 3D character into an image - we're going to need some really good HD, high quality photos that can lend themselves to this kind of "addition".

If you great photographers out there have something that might work for this - submit a comment below with a link to the photograph(s) you'd like to contribute.  Let's see if we can make this work and challenge us artists ;)



The previous comment for "context" is included below
I recently saw an artist who did a remarkable job using a real life photo and incorporating a 3D CG model into the photo - photo-manipulation as it were.  The artist (and I can't recall specifically where I saw it) told a great story through a small series of pin-up renders using in some cases simple props to convey that story.  It is quite masterful the ability to tell a story through 'suggestion' - the talent of subtlety, leaving the appropriate blanks for the viewer to fill in -  rather than overstating the message...

The Old Masters I think (fine art artists) had this down to a science.

Back to those images - what I found intriguing and exciting was the quality of the renders.  At first glance the entire image looked like they were photos - what the artist accomplished was:

1) The technical ability to (and I can't stress this enough) seamlessly match the CG model with:
a. the 'graininess' of the photo
b. the appropriate lighting exposure
c. the correct direction of the lightsource

2) The ability to tell a situational story based on a simple snap-shot image, and yet...

3) Each image was still essentially a stand-alone pin up image.

That was some incredible talent at work in my opinion!  :)

I wonder if the group would like to take on such a challenge and try their hands at something like this?  We would need some HD photos of different locations and lighting, and I'm thinking in a contest members could simply download and work with the photo(s) of their choice from that selection.  The challenge would be each of the 3 points above...

What do you think?

PLEASE READ. OUR RULES!

CG PINUPS is dedicated to CG (computer generated) 3D PINUPS.

If you already use:

DazStudio, Poser, 3D MAX, MAYA, C4D, ZBRUSH and other 3d programs you are welcome to join us and post your best pin up work. We accept only 3D rendered character works with 3D programs. Please avoid posting "works in progress" images as they may be declined - instead we would like to see your best finished artwork.

What we're looking for in a pin up
All models should have a focused or highly suggestive allure or appeal to the viewer. Though eye contact is not mandatory, a coy turn of the head or sultry look will add to the appeal. Generally speaking and specific to this group, fight scenes, distraught or despairing expressions or looks of great hostility and violence are typically not alluring and will detract from an image being added to this group.

WE DON'T ACCEPT:

• Gigantic Muscle female (as in ridiculous proportions)
.......fit and toned with some muscle definition is fine)
• Gigantic Breast female (as in ridiculous proportions)
.......those naturally well-endowed or busty are fine
• Porn (see help.deviantart.com/565/) or violence
• Racialist works
• Humiliating

FOR CONTRIBUTORS

• All Contributors must have 3D pin up works in their gallery.
Otherwise their Contributor request will decline.

• If you submit an image, you cannot vote for it yourself.

• If you don't have any or very few 3D works, you're welcome to still join us as a member.

Being a Contributor at CG Pinups is more than just submitting your work to our galleries, the hope is that you will also vote on others' works, leave helpful comments to help artists improve - be involved in promoting the group on the site, finding artwork on deviantart that fits the profile of the quality we're trying achieve. Otherwise, if you're only looking to submit artwork, we would suggest "member" status would be more appropriate.


OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES:

• CGPINUPS is not a stock group. Please do not use our member's works in your works without permission.

• If you need help, feel free to write our admins.

• We are a community that is based on respect for each other as artists, *always* maintain kindness and respect in what and how we communicate with each other.

Inappropriate images may be removed at the Founder's discretion.

Happy rendering!

Thank you so much :aww:
I've read numerous definitions of the pinup and I'm still not sure to understand what it is, so that I've entered and left your group twice... :chuckle:

Thank you for taking the time to comment.
I understand.  It's a difficult one. 

There's a certain standard we try to adhere to, and that is subject to a million and one personal interpretations - it's why there's a mini-vote, as it were, to admit or decline an image.  It's an attempt to reach some degree of consensus.  To have one person or a couple of people doing all the admitting would be too much work, and to not do it at all would certainly create a 'mess' of anything goes anywhere.  Hence many groups have all manner of images that don't fit the group's profile.  We're trying to have a better, cleaner standard and create some consistency - a challenge to be sure.  Artists of course, rightfully look to push the envelope at all times, so it's a fine balance.  The admins are human, and we are all volunteers who are dedicated simply by passion to that project.

The vast majority of declines are simply because the image was submitted to the wrong gallery and the admins try to steer the artist in the right direction.  We now have links on the group's main page for gallery definitions as a help.  Many of the other declines are because the artist has relied entirely on nudity as the basis of their pin up and made little or no effort in terms of body language or facial expression.  Your images Y-Phil have always been very good in that regard.  I've always maintained you can have a woman have incredible sex appeal even if she were dressed in a burlap sack - it's all in the way she plays up to the camera.

Speaking of which, the last major area of declines have to do with the subtleties of conveying the allure of the character or characters directly or indirectly to the camera (or us the audience).  Typically, those images that are declined involve multiple characters who are pretty much engrossed with each other to pay any attention to us, or perhaps an action scene in which the character is somewhat incidental to the story, and therefore the audience is an observer of "the story" rather than of the character specifically.  Generally, we're looking for the universally attractive character who projects her sex appeal to the viewer. 

On our main page we've added the following guideline:

What we're looking for in a pin up

• Gigantic Breast female (as in ridiculous proportions)
.......those naturally well-endowed or busty are fine
• Porn (see help.deviantart.com/565/) or violence
• Racialist works
• Humiliating

Of course, I'd love to see you join CG Pin Ups again Y-Phil.  That's entirely up to you - I respect your decision either way.  Hopefully the above gives at least some clarity.
