Moar Dragons!

A Dragon Saves Her

Yes, I’m back to making stuff for books I haven’t written yet… Oops? This’ll probably be the image for the second book.

And silly me–I thought that creating a subscene would help me with the lighting…*insert hyena laughter* also add *10 hours later* in a SpongeBob narrator voice, because of course that didn’t work with a complete change of colours and pose. Silly me.

Though I am happy with the end result–after walking away from my computer. Twice. 😉

There’s another dragon brewing. But a trebuchet went free today. So that could get a play with, after I’m a dutiful author and actually write. Covers are useless without the words under and between them, after all.

Back to Book Covers

A Dragon Courts Her

I originally started working with Daz3D because I couldn’t find dragon shapes I liked on stock photo sites…so I’m finally getting to use it for the original purpose two months later. 😉

I’m quite liking this image and the mock-up I have for the actual cover of A Dragon Courts Her is looking good too.

I really should get to finishing the actual book, though. I’m on the home stretch now!

Still Learning…

Priestess

I’m not really happy with this image. I really like the costume…but I can never get it to work with anything! And something about this whole scene is a bit…bleurgh.

What I do like–and I learnt from playing about with the rock I left in the scene–was how to puppet wrap an image. Which is how the magical symbols are around the sword. So I am pleased with that. 🙂

Woodland Sun

I’ve gone all Julie Bell again…

This image is mainly due to my need to light this particular woodland setting, which has been annoying me for weeks. So yay for that.

Also, I got the Genesis 8 morph sets going cheap, so I’ve been playing about with muscles. If only I could tone as easily with a few clicks and slides of a dial…says anyone ever making 3d art stuff! 😉

Angry Wet Cyber Angel. With Tattoos

Cyber Angel

…because it’s Wednesday.

Lighting again…so difficult. It’s almost impossible for me to work out–spatially–where the camera is or where it’s pointing. There must be an easier why to to it…and I will find it one day when I wade thought the mass of tutorials.

My eyes glaze when I start, to be honest… 😉

On the plus side, I learnt how to make rain in Photoshop. So there’s that! 🙂

Cyborg-4

Cyborg-4

A practice piece for lighting exterior backgrounds. I’ve always had trouble lighting this particular model’s skin too. And I kitbashed, as the cyborg add-ons completely ignore the torso, which is odd.

The complete thing is a bit 60s scifi, but *shrug* 😉

Btw, I was supposed to be making a new webbanner…and than Nix 8 appeared. Oops?

Cyborg-4

My troubles with lighting big, outdoor scenes continues.

There was a lot more post work on this than there was on the last cyborg.

It also affected the DoF and the wonder that is the DoF plane opacity. And I gave this about 3 hours to render. It needed another two at least. So I know this for the next time.

Onwards and upwards!

Now I have to do that writing thing. You know the one that enables me to indulge in my new Daz3d obsession…? 😉
