First day on the job…

First day on the job…

Possibly the last of my shadowy images for a while, though I can’t guarantee it. 😉 I have to see what calls to me.

I’m off to write now – yay. I think falling into Daz3d may have kick-started a part of my writing brain…or it could just be I’m sitting at my desktop and I have to find something to do when a 2 hour render is going on… 😉

Another Daz3d background (it was–as ever–going cheap 😉 ) and I’m finding I need a lot less post work because the light and DoF is already there! Yes, I’m sad to find this so thrilling 😉

I have a bunch of new dragon skins to play with, so expect more of them in the future. 🙂

Yet another bike courier 😉 What? The bike was free… lol

The bike was fairly low-res, so it looked weird with the super-detailed rider. Enter a bit of photoshop tweaking to blend it a little…and I’m liking my grim-faced bikerider!

Courier, bike and background, mine. I also meddled in Photoshop 🙂

All mine, no Despositphotos or DesignCuts backgrounds, whee!

I wish I could use Bryce 7 to generate backgrounds, but that software doesn’t work with my version of Mac, which is a complete pita. *sigh* So there will be more stockphotos in my future renders if the environments I do have don’t fit.

But Urban Future 5 works for all of my Cyberpunk/BladeRunner-y needs *grin*

A Fae and her Dragon

A fae and her dragon

I worked out how to ‘see’ Depth of Field for this one – viewed from above in the Aux Viewport – and I could move it exactly. I may have squee’d. Rather loudly. *shuffles feet*

This info is probably on the Daz forum – somewhere – but I admit to my eyes glazing there after a bit and it’s more fun ( if f-r-u-s-t-r-a-t-i-n-g ) to work it out for myself. The lighting fell into place too. DForce? *grr* I had four vert explosions before I fiddled with the surface dials. Honestly, dForce is a pain…

Best bit was finding the background almost instantly on Depositphotos. Colour match, and everything.

Also, I always like drawing/colouring in a dragon’s eyes.

I admit, this looks a little chocolate-boxy…and it is, but…fae-cloth never holds blood stains and in the shafts light, is that the fall of dandelion clocks, or ash…?

Yes, these are the things I think about *after* I’ve made something. Welcome to my brain! 😉

And now…onto something new!

A contender…


I’ve had my eye on this background for so long, I’m happy to have a chance to use it! 🙂 I think this could also be a new contender for my phone wallpaper. I have Grumpy Blue at the minute.

Also, pfft to dForce! I really have to get a handle on how simulation works, but it was a nightmare for this image, so it was me and the little sliding dials.

There might be more images of this alien woman. Just saying…

This is Sparta!


…well, not really 😉

A lot of dollars were knocked off the original price…so here she is. I fell back on using smoke, but it wasn’t working, so lots of copies and some nifty blending (blending is the best!) and I got a nice spark effect.

One day I will know what I’m doing… 😉

Steampunk Time Pirate…ftw

Steampunk Time Pirate

Back again…and this time with a mashup.

I’m sure I’ll come back to this as the Steampunk Timeship is so intricate and lovely. I have about three renders with it already, but they didn’t feel…right. Mainly as I was trying to stuff as much of the ship into the composition as possible and it was bleugh!
