Momo/Lorella being bothered by a curlew.

Really nice render. I love these cartoonish style and I would like to know, how you get the “painted” effect in your picture? Photoshop/Gimp? Which filter?

Thank you. I used a background here (by Sveva). When using backgrounds I choose mainly for composition and overall color but chose this one especially for the dark area under the figure so I didn’t have to worry about shadow catching or finding a log or mushroom for her to sit on. LOL

For postwork I didn’t use filters, but levels, color balance and variations in Photoshop to be sure she, her clothes, hair and the curlew blended well with the background. I don’t think Sveva used filters on the background either, at least a painterly one. Perhaps something for the water, but it looks like layering with some blurring and stuff. The messy nature of the plants she used and the messy hair I used add to the look I guess. Also some exaggeration with the coloring gives it a ‘cartoony’ nature.

HTH.

...that is very nice composition. 

I rarely use 2D backgrounds as for one, it is difficult to match the lighting and shadows sometimes, and when loaded as a backdrop, they are fixed to the the camera you are looking though so when changing cameras to check morphs & such they always appear “dead centre” in the viewport.  I’ve tried parenting them to a plane but could never seem to get around issues with the end result looking blurry or distorted.

I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.

Really nice render - composition, lighting, expression - all top notch. 
To me it has the look of a classic Saturday Evening Post cover, if they ever did a story about fayefolk. :)

Powerpuff girls, or how to get Dad to watch TV with the children.

These are all Genesis, rendered in Carrara.
For this I did use Studio to set up the figures and posing, and then exported them out as .obj’s.
Then imported the .obj into Carrara, and adjusted the shaders.
The reasons for doing it this way is :
Memory : Carrara doesn’t have to load all the morphs
and… Carrara isn’t quite ready yet for Genesis.

Interestingly different version of the Powerpuff Gals. You don’t suppose they’d look even sexier in skirtless swimsuits? raspberry

Carrara isn’t quite ready yet for Genesis.

Will have to keep this in mind if I decide to get Carrara.

Some wrestling images I did (all are Genesis):

When we see people being shot, roasted, crushed, beheaded etc on the big screen, we consider it standard entertainment fare. But when we see child porn on the big screen, we immediately call the authorities.

@Grovelight: Were you thinking of the artist Ian Miller when you did that render? smile

@ K T Ong I am not familiar with Ian Miller’s work but you had me intrigued so I have just checked him out and he has a very impressive style smile  Love the wrestling images you have wonderful lighting and great muscle definition on those.

Thank you!

If you’re unfamiliar with Ian Miller then I suppose you might have unconsciously established a telepathic link with him. Your work is just so reminiscent of his!

Experimenting with UberArea light panels.

Genesis V5 + V5 Supermodel
Classic Deco background prop
Bubblegum hair

UberEnvironment - Quality High (4) - 5.4% intensity. Three light panels on model and one light globe for background lighting. No distant or spot lights.

(First time post. Does the image show up if it is uploaded as an attachment? If not this is going to be blank.)

Title: Just An Ordinary Day
My entry to the deviantArt “Insidious 2” contest. I won’t win and will likely be disqualified because my image was created in Daz Studio using stock models. An admin at dA said, “In addition, where one draws the line between original work and the use of 3D objects is fuzzy at best.”

Taking a photo of a building that someone else designed: Original Artwork. Drawing a stick person on a piece of looseleaf: Original Artwork. My image? Not Original Artwork. I HATE the discriminatory attitudes toward the amazing art we create. How can anyone in their right mind look at my image and tell me it isn’t original art? Nobody else could have made it. It came from MY brain, same as any artist.

Original, full-resolution found here: http://karibous-boutique.deviantart.com/art/Just-An-Ordinary-Day-380782516

Anyway… Can you count the number of Genesises (Genesi?) in this image? grin
