Very nice. I like faeries. The faery world goes so far beyond Tinker Bell. There’s a wealth of material to draw from.


I totally agree. The possibilities are endless :D


For A Shadow in the Past, I learned how to work with mirrors. I had the thread saved, but now it’s lost, so I’m hoping someone else does a tut or something on the best mirrored surface settings ... lol.

This one is nice. I like the mirror effect. Also, the textures (the drapes, the gown, the floor) really make the image.

Thanks. :D


The striped shirt is a Daz Dynamic, M4 Dynamic Polo Shirt: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/m4-dynamic-polo-shirt
The gown is Marie Louise 18th Century Gown: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/clothing-accessories/formal-clothing
The mirror is the Gothika Mirror: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/gothika-mirror


I forget which room it is though ... lol The drapes came with the room.


This next one, Lilith (the name of the character, the book’s title is Nemesis),  was where I learned the wonderful world of shaders! Up ‘till then, I always tweaked textures in PS trying to make different clothing sets match each other, with limited success. I was directed to some free Daz shaders and a whole new world opened up :D.


For the bloody bandages, I used the freebie by Optitex: Mummy: http://www.optitex-dynamiccloth.com/FreebieDownload08.php


For the drape on the baby, I used another freebie, Headpiece for V4: http://www.optitex-dynamiccloth.com/FreebieDownload07.php

Ahhh ... but she’s not the babysitter ... she wants to kill the baby, but can’t for various reasons. If you follow the related link, you’ll get a better grasp of the story line. :D


For this next one, SnowBird, I put it together in a few hours just because it was cold outside ... :D


If I remember right, I am using another Optitex outfit. I believe its the basic dress, but I couldn’t find the link. I’ll keep looking. :D

Read it. She doesn’t sound like the kind of girl you’d take home to mother.

I like the dragon’s texture. Unusual. I think I saw this one over at your site.

Possibly, or on my secondary site, where the more risque images are posted. I cater to a lot of children’s writers, so horror or suggestive works have their own site. You may have also seen it in he old forum, under he Daz Dynamics thread or in my rendo gallery.


The dragon is the Storybook Dragon: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/storybook-dragon I lov.e the scales on it. And it looks sorta friendly vs fierce. More likely to allow a fairy to pet it :D


Despite St Patrick was created for a Renderosity contest. It didn’t place, but many still like it :D


There was a political/religious statement connected to it that didn’t help it’s cause any, either ... lol. If ya care to read it: http://willowravenillustration.weebly.com/despite-st-patrick.html


Brigid, here, is wearing the lovely Neoclassical Gown and Robe: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/clothing-accessories/dynamic-clothing/neoclassical-gown-and-robe and her lovely, cascading in the grass lock are the Esidor Hair: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/hair/long/esidor-hair.

Outstanding image. Too bad you didn’t win. I read the statement. Truth is sometimes hard for people to swallow. I enjoyed the image and the story very much.

And thanks for the link to the hair. Cool.

Sorry, guys ... kinda got distracted and forgot about doing this thread ... lol.


This next piece was for another issue of Scape Magazine. It’s titled Fish Bowl.  If you’d like to read the story: http://scapezine.com/2012/issue-3/fish-bowl


I am including the thumbnail I created for the Rendo gallery because I just like it ;P


For a closer look, since the forum no longer allows for this, the page on my website dedicated to this piece: http://willowravenillustration.weebly.com/fish-bowl.html

Good stuff! I really like The Fish Bowl. Thanks for sharing.

So, if this brings us up to date, then does that mean no more goodies from you?

Oh heavens no ... lol. I am a cover artist and designer for a living. There is always a dozen or so WIPs in the works. But I first wanted o show my progress in Daz since I am a traditional artist and still feel like such a rube as far as what’s possible with this medium.


Plus, only my Daz work is here, none of my traditional work.
