A new one by John Barker at Renderosity: American Woman for V4

It’s ... Oprah.

I really can’t quite imagine myself using an Oprah model, but it is very well done. And very very clearly Oprah.

Now this is interesting.  A new merchant resource set that’s different than the same one or two often repeated bases from 3D.sk

Where, where….?!!! smile

While it’s not intended as an exact likeness, this was (I suppose obviously) inspired by one of the iconic images of the past several years. The character is a custom morph, with Zev0’s aging morphs, a bit of Benjamin for M5, and some of the Ethnicity morphs, among other things. No diffuse texture (the bump map is from Benjamin). Lighting is an UberArea light and a couple of colored spotlights.

OMG!!!! Neo for David 5 looks fantastic! He has great skin and his lips look moist and very inviting. I just love him. I don’t know who created him but finally the African gets as much care and accurate details as the rest of the guys. Congrats to whoever took the time to make him right. Love it. !!!!

I need some help. I’m working on a cover for a new book. Here is the summary.

Demetrius is lost. He exists in a world that is foreign and hostile and he longs to go home. Yet he can’t remember ever having one.  He is compelled to wonder the earth not knowing what he’s looking for but can’t stop longing to find. The people he encounters make him physically ill and even their sounds and smells causes him pain. 

But there is something else, a presence that is more terrifying then anything he has encountered with the people. He has no name for it but the evil is real and it will not give him a moments rest.

Danika is searching too. Her heart tells her there is something missing yet she doesn’t know what. The missing something is relentless and pulls at her contentment.  She knows she must find out what it is but without knowing what to look for how will she ever find it.

Here’s my problem. I have created this 3D art so far. I love the lighting and the poses. The figures look great but I just don’t like the background. I tried moving the figures to several different settings but when I change the lighting to fit the setting I don’t get the look as with this render. I want to keep it in this setting but I need something behind the male. Something like flame brushes of fire or lighting bolts…I don’t know something. I am willing to change the background and the setting but I can’t find something that I think is perfect.

I can’t figure out anything that will make this cover “pop”. If anyone has any ideas, please, please, please impart them to me. Thanks loads.

Thanks so much. I will check it out. I have tons and tons of hair and it seems I only use about 5 of them consistently. Hair is my biggest problem with creating characters.

The textures and materials on the woman look fine.  The problem that immediately sticks out is the bike.  The motorcycle lacks any sort of metallic sheen to it so it doesn’t look like it fits the scene.  There’s a few freebie metal shaders floating around that could be of use.  BTW, which bike is that?  Might try to work on a more direct example.

I’d say that there’s a color contrast problem.  A lot of white and grey is blending together so making either his clothes or the background darker would help it stand out.  Other options are to add depth of field or adjust your lighting/shadow angle.  I tend to parent my lights to a null at the center of the scene and simply rotate the null when needing to change the angle.

Also, the woman’s eyes are unfocused which is a little unsettling.
