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. :)
I've been working on the print section and here's the first one. Machine is a 3D render that took days to render. I've chosen Zazzle.com as I find their products to be excellent. That said, I'm still searching out options but until then....
For designing Christmas cards that is. I'm still tweaking this one but thought I'd post the first render of it. My elves need some work as does the lighting I think but it's fun getting into the season. Even if it does irritate some people this early. :)
It's cold up in my office and my computer is rendering a sci-fi image in print size so I'm going to brew a cup of coffee with cinnamon and put a dent in a sci-fi novel on my Kindle. :)
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 gallery image. It's a bit different but it was something that came to mind. I'd say it's not my usual style but I really don't limit myself and while this is tame... yeah, I go there... And this is the G rated version. I haven't decided if I want to put up the R rated one yet. I'm still debating. ;)
Finished this up last night. I really have no title for it and it isn't part of any story or anything I just felt like rendering a sci-fi city and character. The post work and sky is all Photoshop. The outfit I bought from Xurge3D.com and I love it but I'm going to create a new texture for it. Something a bit darker with ripped and torn elements. It's been a while since I've textured anything. My problem is finding the time.
Latest render is a Stargate Atlantis fan art image. In case it's not obvious by my gallery I am a super fan of Atlantis. When an online acquaintance said they were working on a gateroom model I was ecstatic. I'd been trying to piece together a gate room from bits and pieces of models but this beats anything I came up with. I've been working on 3D characters that looks somewhat similar. I can't draw so I'll take this outlet. :)
