Suggestions?

This is the first WIP-version. I guess "Why I train" would be as good a title as any :)

The poses are either from scratch, or modified presets. The bald guy has a modified skin texture; both trousers have jeans shaders on them. The top of the girl in front has a texture shader, too. Lights is one Distant Light (pale yellow), and an Uber Area Light. I haven't done anything with the hair, yet.

Ideas on what to improve?

That's, imho, much better than the earlier version. Personally, I'd consider having the woman relax a bit - she's standing a bit stiffly, I think.

It does look better. As for the woman standing, I personally think she looks fine. Some women stand more poised then others, especially if they've had dance training such as ballet.

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.

Yeah and some men also. My late husband always stood with a very military posture after 17 years in the army, even when he reached retirement age and had been out for 30 years..

It was just a thought, not a big issue really :)

The girl sitting in the"Why I Train" should NOT be wearing green shorts if she's sitting in green grass. Looks like the groin is just invisible and the grass is showing. Put her in hot pink, hot yellow, hot anything-but-green shorts. *smile*

Good point! I have a rather limited selection of modern clothing, but I have an idea how to deal with this one. I'll tackle it this weekend. Thanks for the pointer!

cheers,
Tobias

Tobias, just go in to the Surfaces and change the diffuse to a dark blue, dark brown, (would get you an olive green though) or dark red, etc.

Here's an idea that I knocked out earlier this week. I'm calling it 'Dragon Burst' for now.

This theme was.. complicated *smiles* so open that it almsot made it hard *winks* Either way, after trying and discarding several ideas.. and than deciding which idea to try the next and so on.. I Finally managed to come up with a first draft of a render, I'm not satisfied with this one truth to be told, but atleast it is a first draft.

The adult dog is posed from scratch, the pup I used a premade pose and tweaked it (still need lots more work), Kielan is a base morph which I tweaked to not only make him fit with the adult dog better but to also hold that basket and look out more actively towards the pup and what is in front of the pup.


So far I haven't used any shaders or any of my own texture, and there's big risk I simply scratch this one and remake it completely.. but we will see.

Beach Dogs.... cause dogs does not always come with four legs *smirks*

Carola...Love the puppy, your guy and the whole scene. Something bothers me about the big dog. Is he/she supposed to be trying to get to the puppy or is he/she just watching the puppy?
