This image started with a rendered figure from DAZstudio 4.5 which was imported into Bryce with a photo of the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle as a background.  The water is pure Bryce.  I utilized the Bryce IDL lights and rendered the finished collage to a TIF which was post processed in PhotoShop.  Not being happy with the result I converted the image to B&W and adjusted the tonality with the PS Luminosity mask tool.
I think the final result is very involving

I do hate to do this to you, because it is a terrific image. But I have to remove it because we have no content filters. Can you upload it to a site like DA which does have nudity advisory and age related filters, and post a link here please.

Rendo has filters for AGE and Family and Work safe viewing. At this time Daz3D does not have filters that allow posting of images that are not considered Family Friendly safe. This is a Family Friendly site and the TOS (Terms of Service) ask’s all members to please not post images that you would NOT wish a young child (U.S.A. Ratings) to see. The link to the Image is the Proper way to post images of this type.

Please NOTE Rendo is not as strict with it’s settings. And that is in their TOS.

Yes that was my understanding when the image was removed from this forum that I could post a link to it.  The link above takes one directly to the pic.

I must point out that this is nothing resembling a porno image it more of an exercise of light, massing and textures.  It so happens that Victoria’s breasts are apparent but their presence or absence has nothing to do with my intentions.

I really like it. I think the black & white gives it a sort of pulp sci-fi ‘50s (or earlier) feel.

I was just trying to help you understand what happened. You took it very well, some do not, I’m a PG 18+ artist myself just check my DA link in my sigline. I just came from another thread about posting so I just wanted to help.

I really like the render. You know how to use the human form as art very well. I hope you think as much of my art on DA.

I think it is a super render, and I was very unhappy about having to remove it. HAd we had our normal content advisory filters, as we used to have on the old forum, then it would have been fine. The link only appears to go straight to the image for you because you are a member of the site, for someone who isn’t or for someone who has filters applied it will not display.

As Jaderail says this is for 2 reasons, one of which is Safe for work viewing and the other is to not allow minors to view.  Sites ask for your date of birth when you join, and minors get filters applied automaticallyI. Others can apply them manually when they are viewing in places where nudity would be frowned on.

I was looking at your page and I can see you can push the digital envelop a lot further and a lot better then I can.  I would like to take this as insert my thoughts about totally digital images,,,,

About 5 years ago I had a very popular digital art site.  I was doing pretty much what I do today except that I composited hair and clothing from scans via PhotoShop.  However I reached a dead end when my skills and the basic limitations of the source material became a brick wall.
A couple of months ago I took advantage of DAZ’s free offer and DL’d studio.  I also purchased some hair and character ad-don’s.
My intent was to duplicate through Studio some of my B&W 35mm images hopefully leading to future photo realistic images.
Even with the best textures and props I could find I could not come close!  That said I did find some of the renders modified a bit (like this one) presented a very satisfying visual experince when converted to 32 bit B&W’s.
I intend to follow this path for awhile

Some images from my old site are in a gallery here http://christinea.net/wordpress/

Apologies again, but that link had to go as well, because it opened staright onto a page with nudity, and no filters for viewing.  As we explained the idea of using a site like DA or Renderosity is that they do have filters, so you can only view the image if you are a member and do not have age restrictions on viewing.

<that link had to go as well, because it opened staright onto a page with nudity>

It’s interesting that DAZ is taking that position.  It’s perfectly acceptable to do that on FaceBook.  It seems that they (FaceBook(  do not hold themselves accountable for the contents of a link to a URL they do not host.

I know an individual with a porno site who has a personal and group page(s) on FaceBook.  In the past if he posted anything of a restricted nature he got banned for 12 hours.  If he posted a link to the same material they left him alone!

All that aside… I assume that the link to the first page of my site is OK?

If rendo has blocking filters why can I see that image without being logged in to rendo?

Presumably because the OP hasn’t flagged it for nudity at Renderosity.  That may give a problem if the site admins spot it.

We are not being prudish or anything, but this is a family friendly site, and also as I explained often browsed by people at work. We do not have content advisory filters, so we do not allow content at the moment that would need the filters.

Ah interesting, just checked, and you are right Anikad, it is flagged, and still displays.  Not good.
