Slosh - 16 August 2014 02:29 PM

You don’t know how long I’ve been hoping to be mentioned in this thread smile  Thank-you so much for the mention, you have made my day, maybe even my year.  This is one of my favorite renders, period, let alone a promo.  And it was Poser, which I haven’t used for a render in about 8-10 years, so I’m doubly happy with it.

I try to find time to check out the new images that are posted daily on here,  and wait for these creative gems to jump out and catch my attention.  Slosh,  you did a great job with it.  More,  please!

Pleas forgive me for jumping the gun. As for a new item from the Lilith release, one really caught my eye. Perhaps it was the surprise of “I know that face”, rather then any artistic “over the top-ness”. Still it is what sells stuff I guess, you see something in a promo, and start looking for the item. I’m referring in this instance to EJ Leilani, featured in the Oona Hair promos. The two go together so well.

(edit)
Case and point, there is a hair style used in the Lilith starter bundle cover, that is either a morph of “Oona Hair”, a morph of “Desideria Hair”, or a style yet to be released, hmm. In fact I see a very similar style used on the “Kamala Outfit for G2F” and “Fantasy for Kamala Outfit” cover-pictures as well. I don’t think this is the Wachiwi hair, as that one exposes the ears.

Thanks Zarcon,  feel free to post more images when you see something you like as should other please,  I never intended to be carrying this thread alone,  because like you said,  the promos are what triggers the interest and each of us have unique tastes.  Everybody’s welcomed to post.

I was thinking I recognized that hair from Kamala,  or more specifically the jewelled chains,  from earlier this years Olympia’s release so I went have a look and it’s quite possibly Persephone hair.

The promo for DzFire’s new cyber drone caught my eye. It’s not only a dynamic render with cool lighting, it has the fun little touch that the air column from the drone’s rotors looks to be blowing over and distorting the title text. Love it.

Phenomenal Cosmic Power, Itty bitty living space. - aladdin. Lol.
In western cultures, there everyone’s dream fantasy. In middle eastern cultures, there evil personified. Perhaps like with other things in the real world, they are neither and both, good and evil.

I was thinking of this thread as I was going threw my wish list, and there it is, lol

There are others in that pack that have great use of art. One with a really nice reflective floor, another with smoke coming out of the lamp, etc.

The pic I wont upload again, is from one of the products included in the “As You Wish Bundle”
http://www.daz3d.com/women/as-you-wish-bundle

As for the hair bundle with Lilith, I’ve fussed with and managed to make a preset for me. It involves modified maps from the original, so uploading or sharing it is not, legal. so here is how I did it, no full renders yet.

And I can’t come here without posting something of value. So here is,
EJ Perla
http://www.daz3d.com/ej-perla

It’s not really a scene, tho the overlay of images is extremely well done, almost like a dream of sorts. Yes this one, not the cover stood out as a relay phenomenal one artistically. The rest are exceptional in regard to giving the potential buyer an idea of what the figure is all about, not that they are not also very artistically done up. The cover pic is perfect as a cover pic for the figure, and the rest are well layed out in showing the different options.

I like gold tones in images and I think these M4 combat images are well done.

Sometimes it comes down to the little things in a set.

If only I had endless funds, lol. Agreed SereneNight, the combat boots alone also make that set worth while. The complete uniforms, are very nice, and well done.
(edit)
I was thinking the Genesis version, Genesis Ultimate Military Basic.

I was just looking at that one.  I like how he added a screen shot from 3D Studio Max too.

The military basic is showing 50% off for me right now. Not sure if it is a PC plus thing though.

Is the color normal, for a blue man group fan. Or is it affection of blue.

Amazing Skins for Genesis 2. available for male, female, both.

The pic is from the bundle.

SereneNight, the last time was funny. The military pack was on sail, and by the time I decided to get the thing, it was full price. Yes it appears to be half off for me today, however tomorrow, lol.

Lol !

The story behind it is that on the planet where Maykedgia and Veuktoya, from the DgeeneezeesSsyx tribe are living, the food is essentially made of delicious radioactive giant sprawns, explaining their base color (it acts a bit like on flamingos on earth). The blue specular/scatter color comes from the fact that there are tons of oxydated Vanadium in the atmosphere, accumulating at their dermis/epidermis interface, and where the light hits their skins Vanadium turns in it forth level of oxidation, generating this blue color.

More seriously The Skin of the male is in the male and the bundle version in full presets for Gianni. For female, if I remember well, I must have applied almost the same settings as for the males. I used one of the area lights sets included to get this specific specular shapes, but you can reach really stranger specular distributions using distant lights.

@ SereneNight, yes the PA have one (or 2?) days with discount on all their store the day the product is released. And since I made both amazing skins and ultimate military, ultimate military is discounted too.

I’ve always liked the realism that 3D potentially offers,  and when a modeller pays attention to detail,  that coupled with a good rendering software results with some great art.  This School’s Out promo caught my eye because it looks pretty darn close to my grade school that’s long since been torn down.  There’s condos there now.  Bigger version of the image on the AntFarm’s store page.  http://www.daz3d.com/new-releases/school-s-out-19787

I like the blue alien skin. Looks good and it is a nice bit of promo art.

There are plenty of poses sets released regularly around here,  and they tend to have very organized and structured promo style,  so to have a set stand out is a rare treat.  I really like the black and white photographic tones on Haute Monde’s promos by LunchLady and the way the poses were laid out on the promo art in groups of 3 or 4,  it gave the art a nice balance.  Throw in the fade frame and subtle background and it all works.
