    Great thanks!

  • The free version is limited....specifically around render resolution and the watermark at the bottom of the screen.

    Other than that, I think it's functional.

    Thought about using this one for the New Users Atmosphere challenge....

    Your link is broken...

  • That's a beautiful picture!  It actually reminds me of a place in West Virginia I've been to including that hazy fog in the background!  :)

    ...and now with the "Dreamy" FilterForge filter:  It's a little subtle, but does a better job of highlighting the tiger and woman

  • Oh, that's good!  I really like the interaction between the two and the landscape looks very lush and well done!  :)

  • Ah, looks like I missed a couple of pictures.  I just saw these on your DA page!  Both are good!  I love the lake image, though.

    Still playing with Vue - this was an experiment in modeling an asteroid belt - 3 stacked terrains made transparent, and then populated with rocks.  

    The spaceship is from sharecg.com, Herminio's "Class II Galactic Cruiser".  

    The planet is a simple sphere with procedural color grains, and a slightly larger sphere for the atmosphere made up of cloud material with a green tint.

    The attachment is 1920x1080, suitable for desktops.

    Great job conveying the story with the cat.  I have that battle armor and havent had a chance to try it.  Looks very cool!  The other two landscapes look like a wonderful spot for a picnic.

  • @TabascoJack  That space scene looks really good.  I like the asteroid belt.  :)

    Love the barn! (of course!)

    So this came about as 

    1) playing with Stonemason's Greeble City Blocks

    2) downloading some really nice airplane models from colacola.se

    3) mashing stuff together and seeing what my brain came up with....

    I certainly didn't have the image in my head to start with, it just sort of happened through experimentation.

  • That turned out really nice.  The Greeble blocks look good.  I love those old planes, too.  But I have to say that my favorite part of this image is that lonely tree all the way in the back.  I love how it stands out behind the city on that little hill.  Not sure if that was intentional, but it's a nice addition to the whole image!  :)

    It was definitely intentional.  I needed something to act as a focal point on the left side of the picture, and also to serve as a destination for the aircraft.  I added the light green aura in postwork to have a slight color contrast as well.

    Now don't ask me why the tree exists or what it represents or anything......

  • Well, it worked because I was instantly drawn to it.  You did good! :)

    Sometimes, it doesn't have to mean anything as long as it works lol. People will come up with their own stories. I like it!

  • Nice image.  :)  Love the lighting and the DOF.  

  • IceDragonArtIceDragonArt Posts: 12,415

    I agree, great use of DOF.  She looks great.

  • Thanks, @Knittingmommy and Sonja!

    It feels good to get back to my roots for a bit.  I'd forgotten how easy it is to set up a render, and how difficult it is to set up a good render (remembering all the little tips and tricks).....

    Good to see you back!

    Picked up a few things today - Faveral's Provence was on sale with the purchase of X-Fashion's Leather Jacket for Genesis 3.  I also picked up FWSA Keira for Victoria 7 a while back in the FWSA sale.

    Here they are together

    Daz Studio 4.9, Iray.  Postwork in Photoshop.

    Nice!

  • Very nice renders.  I like the one with the Provence in the background.  I have to say I passed up that jacket, but it looks really good in your render.

  • Thanks, Sonja and Knittingmommy!  

    I was up in the air on the jacket - but I needed something to trigger the sale.  laugh

    It worked out better than I had hoped.  Seems to have decent morphs also.

    I picked up a couple of Faveral's sets - Medieval Docks and Provence, as well as a few other items.

    Although the render with Keira reminded me I really need to get Fit Control for G3F.
