Well given about an hour last night to get a render out to you guys before my trip, this is what I had time to get to. There's been no postwork done on it (hard to do on a laptop touchpad), so unfortunately there are some issues. I also forgot to put Daru's hi-res lekku skin on her, so it's a little low res. I have plans to use Daru in this super sexy outfit in a proper render Soonâ„¢.
I decided to try out Poser Pro's "Gamma Correction" feature and Indirect Lighting. This scene is only lit with a single primary light and a very weak fill light to lessen the shadows. These lighting results are fairly similar to what I get when I import characters into my environment rendering software Vue. I think it's great that when using this I don't have to flood the scene with a half dozen lights to get things sufficiently bright, but Daru looks a little flat (I don't mean her chest). What do you all think?
Well, that's all I've got time for. I'm about to get on my plane for Japan. Be aware that e-mail responses and moderation will be slow. Don't click on any suspicious links posted by commenters (Chinese MMO gold farmers have been targeting my sight lately. Clean up is a breeze, but I have to have access to do so. And no, I'm not being racist - the IPs trace back to China and they're usually for gold selling ads and malware).
Look for Japan pictures in a new category over the next few weeks.
