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 😉 ).

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…

Here be dragons…

Here Be Dragons...

And another…

I was fiddling about with this–I’d just bought the dress–and was posing it and shifting it about, feeling the need to have negative space on the right. She was looking down…and it hit me that she was looking at something.

And I have dragon software.

Of course she was looking at her new dragon familiar. Look at her tattoo! Duh!!

Sometimes I’m so slow to catch up with my own brain, lol

I almost got the light right on this one, but I was messing about with depth of field to see what that did. When it rendered, it was grainy, so rather than wait the hours to re-render, I “cheated” with photoshop brushing and blending.

I’m still not sure about the image. The blurriness irks me.

Anyway, landscape generating software is a dangerous $2 today.

You can guess what I’ll be doing! 😉
