Latest render. There is some lighting and postwork that was done in photoshop but it was rendered in Daz Studio and I'm pretty happy with her.
Someone asked me why I like scifi imagery so much. I really don't know. Besides just a way to escape, I like the metals and the harsh lighting, not to mention you aren't stuck conforming to laws of nature and reality. I've been writing some fan fiction and you can make stuff up almost all you want with scifi.

I'm having a lazy Easter Sunday morning. After working yesterday and moving some heavy boxes from the old house to the new, my arthritis was acting up this morning and moving was a bit painful. Had I got up earlier to stretch and do a bit of yoga it would have helped but I didn't and I'm sure God will understand.
May be the last of my scifi images for a while. I have new series planned that is a little outside my usual. In this I was going for an alien breaking out of the glass containment chamber.. did I achieve that look? Hope so. :)
Found a little bit of my scifi inspiration that I'd been missing. After Christmas I couldn't come up with a single idea. Daz had some decent sales though so I grabbed a few things. As soon as I saw this little mechanical scorpion this image came to mind. :)
It's been a while but I managed to get about an hour last night in Daz Studio. I'm still learning the best settings for rendering in iRay. It's not an easy program to learn though and it's getting more and more difficult to find the time I need to spend in it. This was just a quickie though, took just an hour to set up and then set it to render overnight.
On a personal note, we bought airline tickets to South Carolina last night.... just in time for dealing with the after math of hurricane Irma it sounds like. The kids will evacuate, I'm not worried about that. The house should be ok but still.... it looks like another major hurricane. Luckily Hurricane Harvey just skirted the other kid.
New in the gallery is the "Hybrid" and yes, she's as bad-assed as she looks. :)
This took only an hour to render in Poser 11 and then just a bit of postwork in Photoshop. I wasn't sure about using that lens flare that I used but I liked the effect and think it looks better with it than without. Hope everyone had a safe 4th of July. :)
Latest sci-fi image in the gallery is "Eclipse". I was following another tutorial to sharpen my photoshop skills and this one was an excellent lesson in brushes. And now since I've been on my ass in front of the computer for half of the day I think it's time to hit the elliptical machine with my latest Sci-Fi book on Kindle. :)
