An old fave…

Grumpy Blue

Nothing was working…so I fell back on a fave. Grumpy Blue in a Shape of Water-esque style ๐Ÿ˜‰

Begin the New Year with…oddness

Insect QueenA woman and her dragon

The first image is the danger of weirdness going very, very cheap in the Daz3d shop. She was also a bit of a mare to light and add background…and render. I only had one polygon explosion, though.

Where as the woman with her dragon was a right pain. That dress? Seems simple enough? I was on the third polygon explosion before I dialled back to the bare minimum in the cloth simulation. DForce is…annoying at times.

As ever, bokehs are from a bundle from DesignCuts (I’ve yet to find something I like in Daz). The rendered figures are mine.

OTT Friday

Demon Queen 1

Demon Queen 2

So…this outfit was going cheap–and it’s a bit mad–so how could I resist?

Image One: I’m happy with the lighting, though her upper arm and side are a bit wonky looking.

Then I thought…how could I ramp up the madness of the costume? Dragons were out. Hmm… Wings!! Everything is so much better with wings!

And the Demon Queen was born.

Image Two: Unexpectedly, I got a more photorealistic look for this image, which is incongruous for the subject matter (oh, my despairing art lecturers from a million years ago would be pleased with that sentence ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

I’ve still a long way to go in learning about lighting, obviously…but now there’s dForce stuff going cheap too. And that’s a whole new rabbit hole for me to fall down. Oh dear…
