I know it's a little bright to truly be moonlight, but eh, I liked the sound of the title, so I kept it. :)
Obtain the 4000x3900 ultra hi-res image from the download link. This one was a real pain to get to go that high. I've had the main figure of this render done for about a week now, but I've had a hell of a time getting a decent water effect out of Poser. In the end it turned out to be a little bit of a fudge (Poser + Photoshop), but I am pretty satisfied with it. When you go hi-res, Poser's raytracing & displacement maps start to really show their limitations both in apperance and its ability to calculate them. I nearly took the final render too Carrara where I got good water going in a matter of minutes, but I just couldn't get the skirt fabric to look as nice (it looked rubbery no matter what).
If you can't tell, I'm a big fan of my newest girl, Kaiya, here. She's built on V4, which means she's generally very easy to work with, but I do miss the ease of Wyrmmaster's magnets sometimes.
Thanks for looking and especially for your comments!
Anyhow, this image was pulled from Renderosity for having "more boob than necessary" in the thumbnail under their no nudity in thumbs policy (which, ironically ended up with more boob in it than this thumbnail, b/c I was worried about their more strict wording about butt cracks showing). Oh well, it'll be back there probably tomorrow with a new thumb. It means that you guys get to enjoy it here "early"!
I think this is your greatest Kaiya-pic so far, can't help but to always look at her face, which is astonishing giving her pose Ã–_Ã–
i just like the whole facial expression and the look of her hair. overall : great :D

Too much boob?! Man that place... I think this one turned out superbly. The water looks great, dark water is always a pain to do in poser. I've had problems with poser raytracing myself, no matter what I do artifacts always pop up. The addition of the skirt was a nice touch (it looks more silky than rubbery to me). Well done sir.

Mooning in the moonlight? ;-)
A little bright to be a moonlight pic? Depends on how big the moon is. :-p
This is a great pose of Kaiya and her hair is lovely (I've always liked pure white hair on fantasy women). The reflection in the water looks good, considering the limitations you had. The fabric covering her bottom looks good also, sheer enough to just hint at what lies beneath.
I like the expression on her face and how, combined with the hand covering her breast and her other hand about to tug the strings of the fabric covering her rear, it looks like she is taking a sneaky dip in the water. The temptation is too much to resist despite who might be around.
The whole Renderosity censorship thing is getting ridiculous. It won't be long before they ban all nudity and even any visible flesh, even on clothed people. It won't just be the thumbnails. Even the thumbnail policy right now is absurd. I've seen generic thumbnails warning about the content of the picture and when I view it, there is absolutely nothing that could be considered nude, violent or whatever.
At least you aren't bound by that here and we get to enjoy your work as you intended.

Re: White hair
You know, I only realized it recently, but pure white hair works for me too. :) That was part of my inspiration for the choice for Kaiya.

Maybe one day you could try your hand at creating a Drow (dark elf) character. They have white hair too and such a character would act as a counterpart to Kaiya or just look great in their own right.
There is a body kit for V4 that caters for Drow and other coloured characters:
Great work, love the reflection on the water, and love that tattoo.

She's so beautiful... I can't imagine how somebody couldn't be attracted to her. To fall in love with your own creation, and when your desire is only limited by your imagination... it must be perfect. If only I had your talent.
She's so elegant, I can't wait to see more. Everything about her is... perfect. Thanks so much for sharing this... it's so beautiful.
