Yours is looking nice. I keep intending to render the entire line, but if I do them chronologically I don’t get past Snow White and if I do them in interest order I get sidetracked. wink Here’s a few that I did:
Ariel: 1 2
Belle: 1
Pocahontas: 1
Snow White: 1 2
Aurora: 1

You’ve inspired me to give another go at this—again, your Belle is gorgeous. smile

Zaarin, I’m embarrassed to tell you that I completely missed your post till now.  Wonderful work!  And I hope you continue doing it.

The final render certainly shows your hard work.  Looks great!

Oh I hope so. I know a little boy who would also love to see that.

...the final version is exquisite.  Beautiful work.

Now that I have a lot of time on my hands (being laid off from work)  I am setting up the new workstation and will be migrating the Merida project to it. Going to be so much nicer having that huge clean looking Viewport to work with.

I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.

I can’t wait to be more of an observer this time around!

BlackFeather, I really wish folks would be more public about their process, though I do understand that some simply can’t do that.  I truly enjoy watching some of the guys over on CGTalk do their thing for exactly that reason.  It’s half the reason I’m a member of that site.  But, like I said, the feedback and encouragement I got out of this exchange was absolutely invaluable and this project probably would never have been completed had it been ignored.  So if you see someone start a WIP thread, please pay attention to it, and offer whatever, even just a short little note of encouragement can make the difference.

True, i’ll keep that in mind. I suppose people in general tend to lurk wip-threads, i know i do. I always get the feeling that i would be disturbing or cluttering the thread if i were to post in it. As if i’m literally watching over the artist’s shoulder and don’t want to disturb.
I guess it’s one of those weird human conditions, you know it doesn’t make sense but you still do it   smile

Couldn’t help myself… had to do one more render… I finished up at 7am this morning with the project.  I got it printed this afternoon, and the print looks flipping fantastic!  There’s an aura around the sparkles coming off the book that I can only see in the print for some odd reason…

But the thing was, once it was done, it was like this total let down.  It’s like a good book I didn’t want to end… anyway… three and a half weeks, maybe 150 hours… shouldn’t have taken that long but I spent a lot of time building four dresses that got scrapped till the fifth came together… also had to go back in and redo the hair, and since Hex doesn’t do true Catmull Clark subdiv, and DS does, that’s a bit of an issue… anyway, so lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and LOTANDLOTSANDLOTS of tweaking… smile But, like I said, after it was done… what flipping now? LOL… started playing with a Playtex Cross Your Heart Bra that’ll take a while to figure out… maybe later…

Anyway, one last one of Belle before I zip the file up and put her in the archives…
