Daz3D has announced a "Sword and Sorcery" contest and apparently you can enter multiple images. This one is not officially complete just yet but it's where my mind took me when I pulled up this character and started giving her a scene. She's currently rendering out as a much larger image right now so that I can use her elsewhere. I just love the gold colors and I actually like how the depth of field came out. That is something I tend to struggle with in Studio but I found a treasure trove of tutorials with Tundorn Games on YouTube.
I have another one in my head that I'm hoping to work on tonight. In my head it looks very Luis Royo-esque but whether it turns out to have that look remains to be seen. I mean, when it comes to fantasy art, nothing and no one compares to Luis Royo. He's amazing. I actually own the Heavy Metal limited edition sword and "The Time Has Come" print. I have yet to put it up in the new house but that may be a job for this weekend. :)

My latest 3D Render. She turned out so well it makes me want to write a storyline around her. Rendered in Daz Studio with work done in photoshop. I rendered the background city separate from her. If I hadn't this would be rendering for days. I was going for a scifi look and I actually may make some changes... maybe add another character for her to interact with but I was happy with how she turned out and wanted to post what I had. She'll be an ebook cover soon. I may change the perspective and include a ship and the night sky. Maybe an alien to be her badass self against. :)
Goodnight all. My pain meds are kicking in. Last week was challenging but fun and awesome and I'll post the pics later.
