Slowly but surely, my first renders are beginning to take shape.
And my guys (I mostly do male renders) need a place to stay, so here they are ^^
Enjoy and comments or thoughts are most welcome smile

Nice use of shadow on the figure. Did you do postwork on the picture? If this was just DS or poser, how did you do the lightning bolt effect on his hand?

Oh hi!
I used DAZ 4.5 and did some postwork in Gimp on the contrast and smudge away some little imperfections.
The lightening in the hand is the free Atmospherics - Lightning at RDNA.
I changed the color in the parameters tab and changed the size.
Also I rotated it so the thicker beginning of the bolt is hidden behind the hand, you are actually looking from under the bolt.

I got some great advices on the newbie forum to get more depth in the background.

Thanks for stopping by! ^^

Rockstar!
The same as the other one, all done in DAZ 4.5.
Only I haven’t done any postwork here as I was happy how the contrast worked out.
I needed to resize it for the forum though.
To achieve a more full look on the hair I added it twice.
The second one I morphed and scaled just a bit so the strands would show.

Dude!

Your work is totally awesome big surprise  Two very different settings and vibes but your style comes through and technique is awesome cheese

The spellcaster (who could be Lightning Lad/Lord/Live Wire with some re-tooling cool smile ) has a classic fantasy art painterly vibe.  The Rockstar (who has a MiG Ayesa vibe imho) is grounded in reality and attention to detail: displacement maps, lighting, compostion make it pop and rock LOL

Am following this thread tongue laugh

The lighting is excellent and your M5 characters look very unique, and almost alive. I’ll be following this thread for sure!

Have been sick a lot and the combination of the holidays has left me little time for rendering.
I made this one for the Michael initiative thread here on the forum.
I want to wish everyone a happy new year!!!

I really need to keep this updated.
It’s a nice way to see my own progression!
These are two very recent ones and the one with the cat in it I made for a contest here on the forum.
Gonna dig on my harddrive to see what else I have that’s worth sharing ^^

Nice work. Really like the dof in the picture above, was that one a lux render?

Thanks for visiting :D
Yes it is, I love love love that little bit of software!
I did had to get used to the real-life light behaviour in comparison to 3D delight where I had some tricks to manipulate the light but that didn’t work out at all in the Luxus software so I needed to get used to it at first.
In that render I let the DOF focus on the eyes.
I am full of ideas but my household needs some attention now ><

The bad kitty scene is.. so good and so funny, cats can so calmly go to sleep after wreaking havoc.

My opinions are just that, based on how I see things.
