There is something very appealing and real with her imperfections, especially around the lips.  It adds to the realism. Well done.

Originally this was a test for figuring out custom mirrored surfaces in LUXrender, having achieved the mirror I wanted I couldn’t get the pose I was after so i set about doing a portrait instead and this is the result.

After 19 and half hours and 4000 samples i decided to stop it as the image was not going to change much more than it had done.

Bruuna body morphs
Amy elite textures
Daiquiri dress with anna lee mats
Sapphire fox hair with blonde mats

I set LUX with the Agfachrome rsx 200CD film response and set the mesh lights to aqua, this brought out the blonde in the hair really nice.

Hope my first portrait is ok, I used a black background to help light up her hair.


You made a great job of this one, my friend.  Thats an interesting point about the 200CD FR, too.  I tend to use the gamma correction more than the FR’s, unless I am going for the B&W look, of course. LOL

Thanks, I really like the burnt look that the chrome FR gives and I made a pleasing discovery with this one too, using a chrome FR then changing the mesh light colour plays havoc with the hair colour.

West Park hospital once home to the screams of the lonely, the desperate and the insane, it`s halls and corridors resonated to the mournful cries of minds in pain.

Now it`s empty,sad memories float down the empty halls and corridors as the sound of the wind cry`s at the emptiness.

What happened to West Park hospital?

Ok same portrait as before but with blue Chelsea hair and the over time bustier, i decided to try using the lace maker texture to make the bustier see through. Same Agfachrome rsx 200 CD and aqua mesh softbox mesh lights.

Once a busy place, West Park Hospital was home to patients of all descriptions, the lost, the lonely, the sad and the insane. Now just an empty shell of creaking floorboards and rotting metal, the windows cracked and the stair cases broken, all that can be heard now is mournful sound of the wind as it cries for West Park Hospital.

Instant rainbow of nails

This caused me such a headache trying to line up the light rays to give enough illumination for the female figure. Rendered to 1k samples and 20 hours render time, theres some render noise still left untouched and there’s some poke through that I missed.

Enjoy smile

WOW!! Who are you and what have you done with the Mike I knew just a few months ago?

Your skill has improved so fast I’m at a loss for words. I am not looking forward to facing you in another contest.

I have not gained anything Jeff, I just find LUX so much easier to work with. The long render times are a right royal pain but the results speak for them selves i guess. You have nothing to fear, :D

You can not say that Mike. Your Posing and composition has become very very good. I can remember when you did not notice a sword was upside down. Sorry I said that in public but it is true. You have come a very long away in a very short time.

Well it`s very nice of you to say so Jeff. Theres more to come….........slowly (damn you LUX) :D but more none the less.
I want to make some kind of series out of west park and will be visiting that forsaken hospital once again soon.
