Title: Guardian Elephants

Software: Daz 4.5 Pro

Lights-one uber-environment in dark blue/grey, one linear point light in the night light.

Suggestions are welcome, I'm trying to get more of a handle on what the software can do.

My second submission.

Please don't take it as an offence... the nasty fella doesn't like to be taken pictures of!!! wink

Title: Nasty little bastard

Daz studio and luxrender. Only sky and sunlight (distant light), plus the character. Nails made into emitting surfaces, turned to almost 0 in luxrender.

Postwork: resizing to 800x800 jpg, manual elimination of 6-7 'fireflies'.

My submission for this month's Light & Magic Beginner's Contest is as follows:

Title: Evil Is As Evil Does

Software Used: DAZ Studio 4.5 Pro
Rendered: 3Delight
Postwork: NONE ~ Art name/copyright placed via Gimp 2.6

Lights Created & Used:
I created 4 point lights - 2 for each of the candles used & 2 for each of Jepe's spell effects at the demon's hands. I also created 1 spot light and parented it to a camera, placed it behind the stained glass window and translated it up to make it shine down onto the window to act as a "full moon" outside. I used Core Lighting 1, light 2 to illuminate the "interior" of my scene and lowered the intensity.

Products used (in case anyone is curious about any of the items):
V4: (Vex/Sabby's Sherry for head & body morph, Kaleya's Mystaria for face makeup & Lilah for body texture & tattoos)
Woodland Dream Hair, DMR Totem Tales, Black Kitty, Kaleya's Webs for Black Kitty (Freebie), DMR Lynette's Dark Nights ~
Luthbel's Night World Fallen ~ Dagon for Fallen ~ Fog Tool Deluxe III ~ DMR Lynette's Dark Rites ~ Jepe's ElementZ II ~
Jepe's GraphicZ II ~ Jepe's PlateZ II ~ Jaderail's awesome Golden Rule guideplate

I'm delighted for the Honorable Mention! Thanks so much to the sponsor, ARTCollaborations. And to the first and second place winners, well deserved! The other renders were strong contenders, glad I didn't have to judge!

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.
