.... Its actually going to be a photo of his father that the main character…

 
Great character and face!  The jawline is perfect.  He’s like uber-Father.

... any advice about lighting would be great, my predator movie poster could use some real work as its hard to see the creature to me

  Thanks for the kind words crewsie… I’m hardly an expert.  Many here far more experienced than me.  Your cover is really good - excellent reflections.  Terrific detail in the background.  For myself a few things I might try…. 

- Better rim around the character - you can attempt to do that in your render software with rim lights or post by rendering your background and character separetely.
- Desaturate your background a little to make your character ‘pop’.  another reason to render background and foreground on separate passes (which I almost always do).  A slight might and depth of field will help too.
- The camera angle is straight forward, you might try playing with the angle to give your character a more menacing look
 
What software are you using for renders?  With that info I and others might be able to give more technical tips.
 
Those are a few ideas that come to mind.  Others feel free to chime in, I’m hardly an expert.
Good luck.

This is an older project I did a year ago. Had a plan to make this in the corner of the screen with a news caster in the center reporting this.

Another awesome image. 

It’d be amazing to get everyone together to run an ‘Advertising Challenge’ then print out all the ad’s in magazine form, with a few articles in there about Daz/Poser/Bryce/Carrara/Hex.  Wonder if there’d be anyone interested in running something like that?

I don’t know about doing several pages and printing them out, but it would be neat to have a competition where people make fake ads as if Daz was the product of every type of ad (EX: Daz perfume, Daz shaving cream, Daz fashion). That would be interesting to see all the different ideas people come up with. I am waiting to see if someone else comments about this!

Not an ad, but I did use Daz gorilla when I saw this photo of a coyote on a train being discussed on an other forum.
I couldn’t resist a bit of photoshopping. grin

Lol Jake at the third image… if your new body is easy I want to meet it.

The ad is actually for “Digital Men”. Its like if people lived in a computer, and Daz3D was a clothing store or something, men would go there and buy their new body by buying muscle morphs like we do at the DAZ store. That’s the idea I was going for.

Actually William Gibson incorporated grafted muscles and neurowork into his books.

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.
