This is another great pose idea my wife stumbled upon. If I had more “angelic” like wings I probably would have used them, but I think I was able to accomplish what I was going for with the cyber wings. I’m not sure what happened to her real wings, and why she now has cyber wings, but that could make a great story for another day.

Now the question becomes, is she evil? Or, is she good? What do you think? I think I basically came up with her story in the time it took for me to type this out :-). Leave your opinion in the comments below!

This is another render of Lynx, with some extra morphs dialed in. When I put together the original Terminally Pretty this is an alternative pose and camera angle I came up with.

Let me know what you think.

While working on a character for one of my last images I ended up dialing in this face that I thought would look good as an Elf. So, I added some Elf ears and found this outfit that seemed like it would be perfect for a sexy Elf mage.

This scene is supposed to be taking place at late sunset. I enabled subsurface scattering (SSS) on the crystal of the staff, added a point light at it’s center, and turned on a little bit of blue translucency to make it look like it’s glowing and providing light as she explores the ruins.

It might be because I started playing Elder Scrolls Online again, but I also feel inspired to create an Orc character, which I’m actually pretty excited about. I plan on sculpting her in ZBrush instead of using morphs inside Daz Studio, which is always challenging and fun. Let’s hope she turns out well! 🙂 It will most likely be a few weeks before I have any pix of the Orc done, just an FYI.

Anyway, let me know what you think!

I recently got some comments on a character I did not too long ago and it made me want to use her in a render. This is Lynx, a character I sculpted from Victoria 7 for Zombi-Horde. You can read the rest of the story here. If you saw my last image, it seems I’m on a little bit of a “vigilante” kick.

I think it might have been inspired by Pix Blaze, a character created by Pixeluna that I recently purchased.

It’s funny, for a long time I was hesitant to buy her. I would go back and forth on how much I liked her skin textures, but now that I’ve bought her, I’m glad I did. I really like the way the textures look on every character I’ve put them on so far! I just like to turn up the translucency weight, so the skin tone appears a little darker, then render away…

Let me know what you think.

I asked my wife if she had any render ideas. This is one she found. It was fun to try and capture the emotion portrayed in the real image. I used some of the hidden face bones to try and pull off the facial expression; it was my first time using them.

Let me know what you think.

Render time: I forgot to write it down LOL. Probably around 10 minutes.

Can you guess what inspired this image? Maybe one of the million car pin up calendars hehe? There will probably be mixed feelings about her actually sitting on the car, but it’s her car, she can do what she wants, LoL.

Anyway, I hope you like the image!!

You might have noticed I’ve been messing around with this concept of a flaming sword for a little while. In this side project I was experimenting with the sword in motion.

This is the kind of stuff I really enjoy doing! Unfortunately, it takes some serious computational power. Even with my 8 core 3.5 Ghz processor it still took probably most of a day just to simulate the hair, the dress, the soft body dynamics, and the fluid effects (the flames). That doesn’t even include any rendering time, or anything like that. And then, you never get it right the first time, or at least I don’t. So after, I don’t even know, a dozen plus re-simulations, this is what it turned out like.

I wouldn’t consider this 100% polished, for one, the hair could flow better, etc. I was trying to make this Katharina Hair dynamic…

I wasn’t sure if I should upload this or not, if anyone would find it interesting. But, after the amount of time I put into it, I figured I should do something with it, LOL.

Anyway, if you would like to see more of my W.I.P. give this video a thumbs up, or leave a comment below. Maybe I’ll even render it out sometime.

Just Released! My Ribbed Superhero Bodysuit

Ribbed Superhero Bodysuit

My Ribbed Superhero Bodysuit and it’s texture add-on were just released yesterday!!! I only spent about 6 months working on it, LOL, but only on a part-time basis.

Right now you can get it for 50% from Daz3D, get it now! 😉

I usually like to do a render to celebrate my product’s release. I also just recently picked up this character, Cathy HD, and was excited to use her in a render! Personally, I really like her look. I wanted her to be a little more curvy in this image though, so I dialed in some of Saige’s body.

I hope you like it!!!

Render time: 1 hour 11 minutes 52 seconds.

I did something a little different here. LOL, I say different, but it’s funny because it’s the same character, same concept as my last couple images. But, what’s different is, I rendered it with Mental Ray.

I had to RMA the motherboard of my Iray computer, the BIOS got corrupted somehow when I tried to update it to the latest version. That left me with nothing but my old computer. No DAZ Studio (the hard drive is already pretty much full without it) and no Iray. I did however plan for being without them and had exported this character from Daz Studio to play around with.

Anyway, this is the result of my “playing around.” I’m not very familiar with Mental Ray, when it comes to setting up shaders for it, I kind of… don’t really know what I’m doing LOL! But, I think it turned out interesting enough for me to post.

This is actually just one frame of the animation I did. I want to do more animation, it’s just wicked time consuming.

Render time: 8 hours.

Let me know what you think!
