    I am so with you on this one @deathbycanon I really like the illustrated one the best!!!!

    They both are great looking images, but of course anybody who knows me knows that I dig the NPR!

    Two versions, the more illustrated style and a more realistic style. I'm partial to the more illustrated one, what do the rest of you think? 

     

     

    I prefer the illustrative style of this image!

    Definitely the illustrative style.  They are both great but that one really just works

    Thank you @Saphirewild @algovincian and @Stormylyght That's the one I liked better too and posted everyplace else. So here are the befores: 

     

      

     

    After I put all the images together and had it to this stage

    I still wasn't getting the look I wanted so I ran it though an action I had called Artist action by sevenstyles at enveto market, Here's the link Your renders have to be fairly large for this to work, this final image was 4000 x 4000

    So the final results after playing with the settings was this one

    I just saw the front page of the Daz store. They changed to new images and they did a compilation with a bunch of your images! Congrats. They look great. :)

    Thanks @knittingmommy , I saw that this evening when I logged in. Never thought I would stand a chance of getting up there beings I hardly ever do landscape type images, so I was shocked and thrilled to see that they made it. It made my day.

    I'm a little behind here. :) 

    I was a cheater on this one, The space background came from Ron's Space brush pack, I also used Ron's fog brushes to get the foggy colored stuff around the back lights. 

    I dropped a black background behind the before so you could see it a bit better.

    Robin Goodfellow, also known as Puck. 

    The before are not saved to scale obviously but you get the idea of what the images looked like before I put them all together.

    This one was inspired by the Netflix Original movie Extinction. I stopped the movie shortly after it started when the dad was having flashes of visions in his dreams, one of the flashes was his daughter pointing a gun at him. So I had not seen the ending yet - what a twist that was! Strange movie, but I liked it.

    I just thought Aureska would look cute as a child like alien so I gave it a try.

    All of the elements tie in together very well – great job! The blue rim light and the subtle volumetrics look really good. I picked up that pro bundle, as well as the Dwayne pro bundle, too. So glad we are getting more than just the same old figures rinsed and repeated for G8.

    - Greg

  • Your Robin Goodfellow and Aureska composites are brilliant! I really enjoy seeing the different graphical elements you use to create a gorgeous final image.

    The Wood Mage inspired by Vlad Gheneli's A Druid Calls. I love that character and wanted to see if I could recreate him in 3D

    Catching up again. B4 and afters... 

    Study Break - Ever since I saw these windows I wanted to do a window light portrait with them. I also had a little bit of fill behind her and some light from the candle. One of the things I love about daz is the realism of the lighting. If you look close you can see the reflection of the girl in the window. 

    Before canvases - I didn't add the backgrounds, I have used both the moon and the sky I used in this in many others that are already posted in this thread...

    Witchery - I love the new cartoonized, I don't even do toons that often but it's sooo fun! 

    Before - I love postwork. :) 

     

    Background from DA, I linked the image above to the DA page.

    Girl With Fan

    Look I did a full render - no background added later... I did replace the cheetah eyes with real ones from a photo though. 

     

     

    Here's the before

    After it rendered I decided the girl needed to NOT be a toon. :) So here's the 2nd before image. :p

    Like I said I replaced the cat eyes with real eyes and then just did my usual finishing post work stuff on it that I do usually after I have all the pieces together.

  • Lovely!  The window one is just beautiful.  I don't do toons often either but I keep getting tempted by renders like yours and KM's lol.

    The cheetah one is just gorgeousl

    I joined  up with Sympatico Studio this week, it's been a lot of fun and really challenging. I'm doing a lot of renders and a bunch came out the last couple of days. I'm just going to post them here because there are so many and if you want to see any before images of any of them just let me know and I'll post them. 

    Had some issues Daz glitch issues trying to get this one done in 4.10. If someone could please explain to me how to get LAMH into 4.11 in words like they are talking to a child I would apricieate it. lol 

    This is Miste by Sangiart, Her fall makeup really spoke to me as it look like it would fit right in here.

    I love these Glouriouse Girls shapes for The Girl 8 by 3Dsublineproductions. I have so many future plans for them! As soon as I have time to render my own stuff again. lol 

    BTW this is a compleated render and I added the grain. Sacralige, I know! But I made a story about it. :) 

    Tori here has been flirting with the hot security guard, the one she knows is on monitor duty right now and currently watching her on the stations ancient Z22 vertical monitors. They are fuzzy as hell, but he still gets a great view of the girls. :)

  • Congratulations! Well deserved. Did they contact you?

    "I wish I was here" is my favorite but they all are superb images.

    Thank you, I actually contacted them to see if they had need of another artist, and I got lucky.
