Just a very quick texture test for the ChinYen currency textures (obverse/reverse) and the transparency proposed for these futuristic banknotes. A quick lighting set-up rendered in LightWave. High resolution versions of the ChinYen texture images are available for free download at the Team-Dystopia website.

All meshes were created in LightWave 3D, textures are all original and graphics were created in CorelDraw. The images appearing on the reverse sides of the banknotes are used with full permission of my wife.
Thank you very much for taking the time to view this render.

Excellent creation. All that's missing is the ashtray full of cigarette butts, and you have yourself a futuristic Mickey Spillane novel cover.

Was that "full" permission, or the patented, eye-rolling, forebearing breathy "fine" to which I'm always subject. LOL

Hmmmmm...Master Moe, you should reconsider the transparency, though it is a good idea, it looks more like a render error in a "real life" image, if one doesnt know its intended, apart from that, Killer Image, the gun has just the right touch of reality , i never manage to give mine...grrr talent cant be bought..luckily, id have to spent a fortune.

Very cool!!! The transparency banknotes idea worked out great! Djando may have brought up a good point, but you don't need to give up the transparency at all. Things like light scratches, little but of dirt or even small repeated patterns can be added, IF it comes to that. But for now, the ChinYen textures rule! A+!
