Back on topic, cool smirk
raspberry

Bluemoon you are seriously coming along nicely.


It is interesting what BlumBlumShub said about lighting, less is more and all that. I agree with spookey type of images. I find it hard to do these types of images so they have the intended impact so I will be learning along side you all.

For once, I've started a proper render already for this, rather than just saying it looks exciting and not bothering.

Hallowe'en is very much in my bag because I love doing Pagan styled images
Is it true I have found a fellow pagan..please tell me it's true. smile

Aye, I believe it's true.

And I am not a neo anything, though I used to play Neocron, and I quite like The Matrix.

This is not really an entry (not sure if I posted this on the old forums or not); but it fits the theme.

And one I did for a freebie challenge a couple of years ago.

Okay mister new Handle, I noticed, lets see some WIP's. I'm wondering about that trick or treating image. Just were will it go?

I like that one Bartman.

Ok, so, I put my Black Queen into my pic, still unhappy with the night-time lights but I do have ideas for solving that. Here's my latest addition to the entry, but still a long, long way to go.

Incidentally, this is without a doubt the longest I've spent on one picture. Normally I have to get everything done at once or I lose interest, and I've lost count of how many times that's happened, so I'm very pleased about that.

Oh boy, I'm liking this so far. I can not wait to see what you do here. (Ren & Stimpy) JOY! tongue laugh

Changed my mind and brought the kid inside
Nice, and creepy. Question, did the render size change in the rules this month?

Have a lot to do with this one, not happy with those really dark shadows and would like to make the background darker.

It has just gone midnight here and I think I should get some sleep and have another look tomorrow. I want to post the first one in a different thread (when I finish it) so I started this one for this thread.

Also I would like to make the vampires body to glow a bit, tried it with the ambient channel but it didn't look convincing.
Yet another nice one, looking forward to the end product.

One of my FAV figures. You did this very well. I'm impressed with it.

Get them juices flowing, do us a new one for this month.

Well I'm enjoying working on it, but done nothing today except some rough sketches.

No render sizes are as usual, but it's not an entry

Thanks Szark, Frank0314 and Jaderail.

After a few hours sleep the answer to my lighting problem was simple - delete all of them and start again. I like this one much better, still have to do a bit of work on the background.
