My first renders with Daz Studio 4.5

A long time ago I did some 3D with Poser, but I never did anything useful (PC was also very slow back then).
After a pause of a couple of years, I'm going to try again, but with DS. I've read a lot about the importance of lights, shaders, camera placement,... so I hope I will make my fantasies become reality now.

Here are some of my first renders, mainly playing arround with UE2, shaders and lights.

Comments to improve are always welcome!

Peter.

PS : the 2 girl portraits have effects from PSPro.

    Nice variety. I enjoyed looking at them. Nice DOF in the dragon in the hand. What was your technique for the statue on the stand? It had an authentic look to it.

    Thanks!

    I think I just tweaked the 'Real Metals' shader on that one : http://www.daz3d.com/real-metals-for-daz-studio
    The silver one seems to have nice reflections with UE2.

    My first try with Reality, 3Dlight was a bit too 'shiny' for this.
    About 15 mins. rendering, GPU only, about 5000 render passes (HD7970)

    Not sure what the PC rules are but I know I see the renders in multi threads the same day. I think the FIRST post has to be to PC then your fine. They check Time stamps I think.
