It’s been an age since I posted here… Bad me!

I’m getting a bit more ambitious in my scenes.
This took 11 hours–or more–to bake and turned out quite well, with only a minimal bit of post work in Photoshop.

If you want to catch up on my images, head over to Instagram, or I’m also now on DeviantArt.

I was sorting through Daz content that I hadn’t used…and this happened.

I do love to play it retro 🙂

I’ve also working on a mixture of stuff for post working. I was layering in light , rendering each individual light source, but that, whilst giving great control, makes for so many laborious renders and huge Photoshop files.

Then I stumbled over canvases, where you have layers generated within the Daz render. They are also huge files and I trash them after I’ve used them in an image. My harddrive is struggling as it is! I’m finding using canvases very hit and miss. What will work like a dream for one image is a hot mess for another.

This image has one, maybe two canvases at a low opacity. Mostly this is good old dodge and burn.

Onwards to finding a system and a style that works for me!

I’ve been bad at not updating here. My Instagram account is a good place to catch up.

 

And the light on this one was a bit of a mare.

I’m still flailing my way around Daz Studio, so I may have it wrong, but I had to delete a shedload of lights that came with this Scifi background. There was an egregious amount and my machine can only take 8. After that, there was lots of fiddling with dome settings and the annoyance that is the Sun-Sky thing…

I am happy with the end result though. This image has no post work on it and I think it stands up okay.
