Now in luminous Goose-o-Vision!! was created by AuGoose
I'm gonna put my wild flailing with rendering over here so as to not clutter up my writin' notebook.

So far I feel like it's going pretty well. At least for values of 'pretty well' meaning I can see lots of stuff I want to do and have no idea how to do :). Tons to learn. Lighting, material maps, how to get half the stuff I've bought to actually work... Good times.

Anyhow, I thought I'd share a couple new renders as I pick away at it.

Inspired by a scene in 'Makes No Difference Who You Are...' ~



And my first fast and dirty go at Wendy :) ~



Hope you like :)!

I feel like I've just been run through a Three Stooges skit.
"Mesh lighting is awesome!"
"Cool, I'd love to try it. How do you do it?"
"Create a plane, then turn the emission way up!"
"Erm... make a plane?"
((Consult the internet))
"Ok, I've got a plane, now I should turn up the emiss... hey, there's no emission option."
"You've gotta add it as a shader."
"Erm... add shaders?"
((Consult the internet))
"Seriously? That tab over there??!? Ok..."

Yeah. I got there, but mostly after I found a guy whose whole business seems to be teaching people how to use DAZ who was willing to write a free guide that treated me like the utter novice I am :). I bookmarked his store, because if he wants some money for a tutorial on lighting underwater scenes --insert badass picture of a sunken boat coming into view through inky gloom here-- I'm kinda inclined to pay the man.

So a couple new tools in my belt, but the big one is mesh lights. YAAAYY!

Lets try this again ~

Still futzing about. Shaders are neat, but definitely need to spend some time looking at the library I have and get a better feel for the default surfaces at my disposal (as it looks like part of the art is misappropriating materials to create the look you actually want...)

There's also the small issue of outgrowing clothes that burst apart seems to be not-a-standard feature (really, why not?!?) but I found that with all the internal sliders accessible you can at lest make the clipping interesting :).

Earlier pose for Ella mid-change, now on background ~


I am getting the most curious library of personally-created poses ;).

...Aaaand the somewhat inevitable final form of Super-Ella. Still tinkering with clothing partial-destruction (hence the ankle-straps left over from her shoes). Light's a little too blue in this for her fair skin, but these are all just practice pieces, so (identifiable) mistakes are kind of a good thing :).

Yeah, she's kind of overt (and completely NSFW -- hence, spoilers) ~

I've mostly been editing the last few days, but I did add a few more goodies to my 3D kit and did my first texture re-build using photoshop. Its a definite flashback to hacking City of Heroes characters - same map styles so some old experience moved things along.

I also put together a little sumthin'-sumthin' for my workshop entry to go with the post-voting re-writes :).

Still tinkering.

I have pretty much all the assets I need now for some Best. Day. Ever. illustrations.

Fiona occasionally reminds me to get a school showers set ;)...

And like winter, Sylvia is coming...

Experimenting with a torus light source instead of a square plane - which seems to make a difference on highly shiny surfaces.


And a little regular mesh lighting as I try to dial in a look for my online 'main' of many years :).



Yes, yes, I realize I'm a somewhat singular creature around here in this regard, but they're still simply the hottest of accessories to me :).



Ok, mad 3D scheme no. 471actually worked, and is so awesome it's getting written in :).

I sense a bit of CODE Avatar in these renders. I could very well be wrong.

Oh no. I think you've actually shown me an insight I hadn't consciously had. Its still me, 14~ years later, and now that you've reminded me that I FINALLY have the capacity illustrate that tale exactly as I imagined it, I think I just lost a few hundred hours of my life (to a worthy cause). So THANK YOU, very much :)!

Damn. I'm kind of giddy at the prospect.


Ok, that those are two button clicks apart once you get set up is magic :).

Funny you should mention that...
Bree -- Sophie -- Sylvia

That's only 90% converged so there's a little speckling I can fix in a longer run. I also want to personalize the space a little bit (hand weights laying on the floor, heh) and spend a bit more time tuning their individual faces and builds, but for a test of the set and some posing I'm pretty satisfied with "movie night" the evening before the story begins. :D

Well that is quite enticing, I hope to see what comes of this. Those Seraphim may yet fly again.

My pleasure :). Hopefully this is somewhat like you were thinking in terms of the Orb's effects...

So I've largely settled on a final wish model for Sylvia. Now I'm just playing, but she holds up very well in all manner of poses :).

Funny what you can do when your strength vastly outstrips your own bodyweight.



Sadly my machine crashed on this render, but I was able to partially savage it.
Need. New. Rig. Grrrr.


This is an attempt at a later scene in the story, incorporating some techniques from the photo manipulation thread :D.
NSFW. Not even remotely.
