I was sorting through Daz content that I hadn’t used…and this happened.

I do love to play it retro 🙂

I’ve also working on a mixture of stuff for post working. I was layering in light , rendering each individual light source, but that, whilst giving great control, makes for so many laborious renders and huge Photoshop files.

Then I stumbled over canvases, where you have layers generated within the Daz render. They are also huge files and I trash them after I’ve used them in an image. My harddrive is struggling as it is! I’m finding using canvases very hit and miss. What will work like a dream for one image is a hot mess for another.

This image has one, maybe two canvases at a low opacity. Mostly this is good old dodge and burn.

Onwards to finding a system and a style that works for me!

Nothing says ‘Boxing Day’ like a grumpy, blue alien…


Grumpy Blue here took forever to render. Close-ups always do.

Most of the effects were fixed in Photoshop’s Camera Raw filter. I love that thing. It often changes ‘bleh’ to ‘ooo’ 😉

Background is maniped from a stock bought from Depositshotos. Grumpy Blue is mine 🙂
