Path of Spawn by Vioxtar Path of Spawn by Vioxtar
Re-imagined Sandbox

Music

"Not everyone Joins with prop spawning abilities - only a rare few Players were known to ever possess the godly gift. Also known as Spawners, these Players were praised and worshiped for their power to create from nothing. With so little of them, the Spawners decided to scatter across the lands of Sandbox, and to Spawn and give to those in need. With time, the populations grew hungry for more. Not keeping up with the ever growing greed, the Spawners became hated and blamed for widespread poverty and despair. Certain that the killer of a Spawner would be granted the power himself, the hungry and the lustful killed every Spawner known to give. Only one Spawner survived - the Remaining Spawner. The Remaining Spawner fled to distant lands, and for the first time - harnessing the remnants of all the Spawners’ powers - Spawned himself with Eternity. Today he rests there, up in the mountains, and every dozen years, he wakes, and the Spawning begins, and he Spawns and gives for all to come. Every dozen years, the Players of Sandbox gather, and as one march the Path of Spawn, leading to the mountains. There, with mourn, each Player will be given a single new spawn, which will have to do for the years to come."

Stretched this over months of work. 329 effects, 679 props, 116 individually posed ragdolls, a good deal of lua scripting, and a handful of post game editing (including soft light stacking, volumetric, atmospheric passes and texture blending techniques) later, and this is the result. Probably the biggest pose I've worked on yet. It stretched engine limits and I had to pull every trick I know of to capture it properly. Raw capture scaled at 25600x14400 and was later downscaled. I'm fairly happy with it overall!

Wow, very cool. Love the atmopass as well. The only thing I've done in g-mod is a Star Wars racer. : () Anyway, I tend to abandon things I do after I've worked on it for around 10hrs. I just never go back to my projects. How do you stay motivated?

Staying motivated is tricky. I find myself being motivated enough from coming up with techniques to improve technical aspects of pictures (lighting, textures, etc - just recently coded light bounce). In addition, exploring this Sandbox universe I came up with is a great plus as far as motivation goes. The Sandbox universe is a place filled with the products of ones imagination, where anything illogical and insensible is made logical and sensible. It's the perfect platform for creative exploration.
