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?

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.

Yes, Steampunk Robot Vampire Hunter…because, why not?! 😉

The light was giving me problems…but I’ve got it where I like it. I could go lighter, but I prefer her eyes being the brightest point. Photoshop ftw 🙂

And this is obviously *not* inspired by my wip…which I need to look at now. No more Daz3d until I get my daily word count! *boo!*

I bought new lighting sets–they were ridiculously cheap–and I’ve been playing about with them. Not as happy with the result on this as the old way I was lighting, which did give me a more flexible palate…so we’ll see how it goes.

This image was inspired by my wip. Yes, I’ve been writing. Proper words and everything. We live in strange times…

Now I need a vat of coffee as I am not awake. Not at all. I feel very…Mondayish 😉
