Woodland Sun

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! 🙂

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?

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…? 😉

Someone slightly more…lethal this time 😉

And I discovered a camera focusing tool.
All hail Near DOF Plane Visibility and its Opacity slider. I can see where the focus is, rather than holding up a wet finger to the wind.

I admit to squeeing.

Also I uped the rendering time by an hour, which seems to have worked better too as there’s minimal Photoshoping on this image.

Now I’m away to that thing called writing now… 😉

Making it in here today with an image by the skin of my teeth! lol

Nothing was working. Everything was overcomplicated…so I went back to basics. Figure and light.

What I really like is that the hair is original Genesis–and it was free!! (everything else is Genesis 8) and it really works as a slicked hair look. I admit to a bounce and a squee (so mature) when I saw the first iray of it.
