Space Medusa

Space Medusa

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.

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?

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… 😉

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!*

First day on the job…

Possibly the last of my shadowy images for a while, though I can’t guarantee it. 😉 I have to see what calls to me.

I’m off to write now – yay. I think falling into Daz3d may have kick-started a part of my writing brain…or it could just be I’m sitting at my desktop and I have to find something to do when a 2 hour render is going on… 😉

Yet another bike courier 😉 What? The bike was free… lol

The bike was fairly low-res, so it looked weird with the super-detailed rider. Enter a bit of photoshop tweaking to blend it a little…and I’m liking my grim-faced bikerider!

Courier, bike and background, mine. I also meddled in Photoshop 🙂
