You really do magnificent work. Have you explained your work process in any posts earlier? I'm just curious what kind of models, software, etc, that you use to make the art. I really like it. Since I'm trying to learn more rendering myself I'm always interested in what work-processes are involved.
thanks much. No I don't spend a lot of time going through my processes. They change a lot, and aren't necessarily anything I would recommend anyway. That and I'd rather spend time working on art and not explaining it LOL. and even when you do explain some of your process, you always have the nerds that want to say your doing it wrong, or their way is better. So it's more of a war than a discussion. I stopped even posting what software I use because i was getting hate mail from people who use competing products. If someone asks I'll share what I use though.
I use daz studio, and photoshop primarily. In this render I was using the default 3Delight renderer that comes with the software. These days I mostly use octane render for Daz studio. and sometimes hexagon, silo, sculptris and a few other random tools.
if you want to improve your rendering, you will want to learn about 2d painting, photomanipulation and some basic drawing skills and concepts along with improving your knowledge of the 3d tools. too many "3d artists" ignore the art element and spend too much time in 3D software and miss out on the rest of the world. you can make a mediocre render pretty good with some solid postwork skills, and you can make a good render amazing with a bit of effort after the render is done places like psdtuts+ and imagineFX are great places to see digital art tutorials.
Thanks a lot for the reply. I'm mainly interested in your models, and how you make them so.. curvy And this isn't for saying you're doing it wrong, more for saying that you're doing a great job! I love it!
