    Thank you for your comments Luci45. Now I have to go and look up Frieda Kahlo.

    I was thinking of this one - What the Water Gave Me. http://www.wikipaintings.org/en/frida-kahlo/what-the-water-gave-me-1938. But it's a lot different, just the bathtub angle...

    I followed the link, Luci, and I ran across this one in the slideshow: Girl With Death Mask (She Plays Alone). Gee, ya think!? (Can't imagine why.... :roll: )

    Yeah, it's just me being me....

    Thank you for the comments/critiques; they are always much appreciated. And yes, it was a compliment, albeit a left-handed one (actually, more of a dig at myself!)

    I've been laying low for a bit, to give me a bit of time to decompress, and to let everyone else catch up. (Six renders in the space of a week!? Damn!) But I'm ready for the final go. And here it is....

    1669 - Lyda
    1398 - M4 Elite Texture: Stratton
    1242 - Point Pleasant for Parkside Point
    1236 - Onyx for Genesis Female

    Okay, it's official; right now, I couldn't buy a clue with Visa Gold! But, in the immortal words of Debbie Harry: "Once more into the bleach!"

    Ken "Assignation Behind the Garden" - well, that's an unusual style for you! Ashamed to say I've never read beyond chapter 2 of any Austen (though seen a few films and TV versions) so not sure of the reference, but it's very nicely done.



    OBanion #5 Nice one, looks Jane Austenish, I guess. I never got around to reading her stuff, but there were movies (yawn.)

    Please, guys, tell me I'm not the only one in this thread who's read Jane Austen! :ohh: Pride and Prejudice? Sense and Sensibility? Emma!?

    Well, technically, it's not a 'Regency' style. (The DAZ Readme calls it 'casual'!) But I used it in four of my seven submissions, and I find that it lends itself quite readily to that type of scene - you know, the formal, upper-class, Snob-castle kind of settings and characters.... And it has a ton of morphs, so it does that "blowin' in the wind' look really well! (Making it semi-transparent - that got a bit tricky, and that's where the pwGhost shaders came in.)

    Is this http://www.daz3d.com/andy-hair the Andy Hair you like, Ken? It is always good to get a recommendation for good hair. I've been disappointed with many I have purchased. On the other hand, Gregoria hair http://www.daz3d.com/gregoria-hair is one of my favorite hair purchases. It also has presets for styles and lots of morphs. Plus, it renders to look quite realistic.

    That's it!

    Truth is, I had never paid all that much attention to the back of it (the 'Tail'), because I had - until this particular incarnation of the RRRR - always used it in a 'face-forward' pose. But 'out of the box', as it were, it works very well as a formal hair style. The included morphs let you give it that 'fly-away' look, but when it's tamed, it's downright elegant!

    But I will definitely check out the Gregoria Hair. You can never have too much hair! (Or too many shoes, for that matter! Oh, damn, have I just outed myself!?)

    EDIT: So yes, consider this a recommendation. I love the Andy Hair! It is incredibly versatile, and appropriate to so many scerarios (scenaria? Even as a former English major - for a semester, in some college, somewhere..., it's hard to be sure!). So if you see it on sale, by all means, snag it! You'll love it!

    Thank you for the comments Luci & Melanie.

    This one was a good learning opportunity. Partly because I decided to play with fog and clouds which I hadn't messed with before but also because it turns out that "Beard for Michael 4" is not Carrara friendly. Even though the color of his beard doesn't perfectly match the color of his hair, at least it no longer looks like someone slapped a swath of paint across the lower half of his face. :lol:

    - BRC Dark Rose

    Journeyer Scout
    DM Legends (her daggers)
    Rock Star Hair

    Victor moved cautiously through the misty ruins not suspecting he was being watched by none other than The Deadly Fashionista... and she did not approve of his outfit!

    And a little more catch-up...
    Totte "The Devil always cheats" - I really like this one, lovely mistiness.
    and "London Underground extension work" - poor St George, he's obviously completely baffled by the robot! Nicely done.
    Ken OBanion "Be Vewy Quiet..." - nice ghosting there. I'm sorry you've run out of entries now - I really look forward to them!
    emsim "Deady Fashionista" - mmm, another nice mist there - so that's done in Carrara? I've got a free older version from a magazine cover-disk but never tried it (yet) - one day...

    I'm not sure this would matter. As long as your Rolls for the 4 Main items were from a store you can add or use any items you like to finish your Render.

    Cinderella and Snow White both use the V3 figure. V4 EQ/FG is wearing the fairy gown. I've started using the list at daz instead of the created list in case anyone's wondering about the changes in numbers.

    Title:Stranded

    Mike and Vicki had a bit of a problem with the truck. And this wasn't a great place to be stranded - no signal at all! Mike would just have to go and find help...

    Vicki: "OK, so which are you going to try? It's far too small for Jumbo and those rhinos don't look very friendly - maybe one of the deer-thingies?"
    Mike: "There's never a zebra when you need one. And Vicki, can you lose some of that snake metalwork? I think it's making them nervous!"

    Also Used:
    M4 with Timeless Male hair
    V4 with Duarte hair
    Phone from Smartphone and Tablet
    Pickup Dred (with a little steam from Ron Deviney's Brushes Sampler)
    Worldbase XT Lushlands background (Serengeti Cyclorama had just too little space to fit the menagerie)

    This one was almost too easy - outfit two characters, pose 'em, and the random part is done! Needed a bit of context, though....

    Also Used:
    Tales of Adventure for SP3 (sword and scabbard)
    M3 Scout
    Obsession - A Private Collectiom (texture)
    Nightworld Lycanthropos
    Crypta Sepultus

    No tag, 'cause it's a non-compete. And you won't find it in the Entries-Only thread, either.

    Title: To the Victor Go the Spoils
    "Remember when all a girl had to do to get a guy's attention was to flash a little leg, maybe show a bit of cleavage? Now I gotta go out and kill a freakin' werewolf! Oh, man, Panetta's gonna pay...!"

    Here are a few I'm really liking so far... though all are terrific in this contest that pushes imagination to the limit !


    Title: “You Are Cordially Invited For… Dinner!”
    TAG: obanion#01
    Terrific use of negative space (which you know I'm a big fan) here to create a truly dramatic effect. It’s always tempting to load an image down with all the elements of a draw, but here the restraint is elegant and effective. One of my favorites of yours for sure. Lovely.

    Zawarkal#01
    |:| The Merry Go Round of Life |:|
    Fun, whimisical, definitely my pick so far for the fun and amusing category. There is a nursery rhyme whimsy “The-cow-jumped-over-the-moon”-feel. Inventive and storybook, fun and smile-inducing.

    JK0011
    Waiting for Life
    I like the use of shape symmetry with the urn and the woman’s stomach, and the plant as a symbol of life. This image reminds me of the tradition of allegory popular in the Renaissance. Nicely done

    Winterlace #1: The Holdup
    Wonderful fairytale feel to this one, vivid use of color and captivating. Terrific image.

    Luci45
    The Princess’ Lament
    Gorgeous reflections and interior ligting. I love the princess’ expression. Full of character with a tale to tell of the mystery of the nature of the lament. And what the bird knows.

    Tag: emsim #1
    Title: The New Quartermaster
    Colorful, enchanting, brimming with imagination which is definitely signature of the work you’ve posted. Great render and concept. Do keep ‘em coming.

    TAG: barbult#3
    Title: Stop peeping at that NVIATWAS movie, and serenade me while I cook your dinner
    This has a hint of the the Far Side humor. I really like the sense of normalcy and familiarity you created with the couple in there natural posing and placement, like this happens every night.

    It’s Not One of Yours?
    Tag: Luci45#4
    My absolute favorite so far – gorgeous, storybook feel with a Renaissance flavor which you do oh so well. This contest definitely suits your talents in creating a coherent artistic vision out of chaotic elements. Your renders most of all always give me a sense that you chose your elements intentionally and with a plan instead of vice-versa ;)

    TAG:Totte#4
    The Devil always cheats
    Really like the feel and composition here. There’s a distant world moodiness that really works here. Very well done.

    Thank you bohemian3. It's funny, I actually had Hey Diddle Diddle going through my mind wondering how I could include it in a challenge within just weeks of creating this image. Perhaps I did it without realizing so.

    Thank you, bohemian3, for the kind remarks.

    It's kind of ironic that in both this RRRR, and the last one, the images that got the most favorable comments were the sinister, monsters-lurking-in-the-shadows ones! I'm not quite sure what to make of that. %-P

    In any event, I do appreciate the thought!
