distance lights dont work to well inside
but you could use linear point lights instead then ( just substitute one in each place with same colours and settings basicly - might need a few more , just experiment

If I might share a thought, an idea about the Cheron figures.

You know, we don’t have many people who naturally have black ‘and’ white skin ... but on our pets, very generally speaking, pink skin produces white fur and black skin produces black fur.
In people with “any” dark type of skin, hair might be ‘grey, black, yellow or brown’. The very white skin will more likely produce a shade of red hair.
Might make for some interesting hairdos if we also split the hair colour? Just an idea.

A “teaser” trailer for the new Abrams’ film, “Star Trek: Into Darkness”—before the “real trailers” are supposed to start Monday (acording to the info in the link).

http://www.space.com/18793-star-trek-into-darkness-teaser-reveals-first-footage.html

It’s got me a little curious as to who the villian is supposed to be….after all, with the reboot, this Kirk is too new for racking up that kind of enemies’ list.


      The voice sounds a lot like Nero, but he got squished in the black hole.


      Could be one of the millions of fans whom Abrams pissed off with the reboot, but with most every single one still living in their mother’s basement, none of them will have the reasources to pull off a caper this big.


      There is one other possibility….Kirk’s foster dad. After all, young Jimmy DID wreck his car tongue wink


Those are all I can think of. Anybody else got ideas?

Apparently he’s called John Harrison, and the p;icture they’ve released has him in a Starfleet Uniform.

here is an easy 3 light portrait setup

you would play with the shadow setting on the 3th light

and you can add more light of different types as needed or wanted

A suggestion to your light setup and one that won’t take up much time on the render is add a distant light 45 degrees to the left or right of the camera. You may need to parent/child this to the camera.

Set the new light to grey (aka 50%) and set it to 25-50% for intensity but turn it to specular lighting.  This will help give the clothing a slight shine if you are looking for a satin,rubber, latex look.  The draw back is if you have specular settings for the characters skin,  it too will shine. Sabby’s skins over at Rendo almost all have specular settings.

When I finish up the last of the novel (which should be out by monday given that aren’t any real-life problems to hamper things) I’ll post my lighting set up I used for the current graphic novel and lighting for my previous novels.

Pardon the pun, sorry Poser users…you’re in the dark.  <grins!>

T’would appear that my image issue has finally been fixed. I can now see avatars and attachments when I visit the forums. I had said something to our IT dept about maybe that cloudflare.com was being blocked but he never responded back. I just figured it was with the trojan virus issue that had showed up on our servers was why that he hadnt responded. It wasnt fixed yesterday and was still not working this morning. But now it seems to working for the time being. Hope it stays that way!

now that Doomsday device is available, thinking we now LOL need a damaged Constellation Class raspberry

There is one about somewhere. I have this in my runtime but its been around so long and I have rebuilt my runtime so many times I have no idea where I got it perhaps some one out there will be able to enlighten us

I think it´s from http://www.celestiamotherlode.net/catalog/show_addon_details.php?addon_id=1285
It must be an 3ds file , am I right ?

Oracle, if you really want to do more ‘Trek art-  and I know you mentioned wanting to do your own graphic novel some day- then make sure you find time to go through The List. Just about any standard thing you might need- and by that I mean stuff that’s not “Story specific” can be found there.

Paul, are MM’s converted ships part of the,list ?
