  • Version E here.

    I did some texture work, gave the guy some head gear, and gave the two of them a cybernetic firbaby who's caught wind of the foe that I added in an earlier version.

    Version D here. I've added another flame prop and an instance of one of the existing flames behind my characters to try and get some more light on them.

    Other then that I've done some texture work as well.

    Select the Tonemapper options, go to the ISO setting change the ISO to 200. That will bring up the lighting.

    This is a nice render. Vaispora seems to be pointing towards the way to go, but it looks likes she is holding something. If you zero just the index finger it would be an improvement to that pose which I think is awesome.  You could use a little more lighting.

  • Version F here with some more texture work, and a tweek to the render settings.

  • Realised that I need some tweeking of one of the texures I had changed in a previous version so I went back in to try and get it where I was happy with it.  I also tweeked the render settings a bit more as well.

     

    Here's version G.

    I highlighted the keywords. You know the art is done when and only when you are happy with it.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I adjusted her hand slightly so that it's easier to see that she's pointing. I also added a few more glowy mushrooms and a bit more moonlight.

  • Try this Select the Tonemapper options, go to the ISO setting change the ISO to 200. That will bring up the lighting. You can play around with it so you can get more of the detail of the woman's face. Or you could work with the emission setting of the lamp to do some of the details of the face.

    Love the new pose really looks like she pointing the way.

  • Updated with a wet body texture, added some rain and tried my best to give the hair a wet look in the postwork.

    I like the lighting and posing in this piece. Perhaps you could add a bit more emotion in the dancers and music player's faces? They look a little robotic right now. It doesn't have to be overly expressive but jsut enough to add a bit of humanity to them. :)

  • Version H here with some adjustmants to the Cyber Firbaby.

    Image title: The Priestress

    Intemediate  Open Render Challenge. 

     

     

    It's a long time that I have visit this thread.

    I have did not that much in Daz since then, but now that I have holiday I played along with all the stuff I bought in the last months and tried to remember all the things I once learned here. 

    It's horrible how many things I have forgotten and I still can't reach the level where I wanna be, but sometimes things went well. 

    Surprisingly this scene toke me only half a day and it looks better then most things I did in the past  *lol*

    So I'm not a newcomer more a 'recomer' but I hope that's ok.

    Yes, there were four of them and she was alone. Her clothes did not hide much of her marvelous body. They thought they could have fun with her even when that means that they must use a little sexuall force.
    But slowly they realise that it was a bad idea to attack a priestess of the  first mother...
