Beautiful Power
Description: Long time no post, eh?

I built a new computer last week and it has the ability to set a custom boot logo. I thought a while and wondered what I had that I could use as a great boot screen, then I had an idea to do something new, and I ended up with this. The idea is that the circuitry lights up and begins to take shape, eventually resolving into Daru, eyes aglow with power. I thought about trying to animate it somehow, and I still might try something simple with it.

I know some of you out there might be saying "Daru again?!", but hey this is my show and it's my computer! XD Rendering on it is significantly faster than my old one, which means faster turnaround times and/or fancier effects.

I originally planned to have something about a week ago, but I built a new computer and had some problems with it. The upside is, I made this render, and it's not the one I previously had planned - that one will still come. I can tell you that it features Oola, someone who's not appeared here in quite some time. I'm also tossing around ideas for Ciel in my next planned image after that.

Thanks for looking and especially for those leaving comments!

For the curious, specs on my new computer are:
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V Pro
CPU: 3.4GHz Core i7 2600K (overclocked to 4.2GHz at the moment) w/ Corsair H60 water cooler
RAM: 16GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
Graphics: 1GB GeForce 460 GTX
Still to come: Solid State Drive
Keywords: Twi'lek, Daru, Star Wars, Blue, Cyberspace, Electronics

It's good to see a new piece of art from you, Giolon. It looks great. I always say that, don't I...but no, really. It does look very nice indeed!

The blue palette looks gorgeous and her eyes are so captivating because of their brightness.

I think Daru was the right choice because, being blue, fits in with that electrical/virtual/energy vibe. Think TRON, think Deus Ex, or if coming to life, think a modernised version of Weird Science (if you can't find the woman of your dreams, create her).

Actually, she looks ever so slightly sinister. You've created her and now she is going to integrate herself into your life, before eventually and finally becoming something so powerful and with so much control. Kind of like SHODAN but with a very charming body. :)

Finally indeed...

I agree per above, she looks a bit scarry/freaky indeed XD. But a great pic nonetheless. Can't wait for your next, hopefully that one won't take too long. ;)

It did turn out a bit more sinister looking than I intended it too. Originally Daru's eyes were closed in the center image too but then I thought "What if I made her eyes glow?" and just really enjoyed the result.

Sorry about lateness

I've been meaning to say that this is an impressive piece of work you've done. The eyes maybe could have been toned down to a softer glow, otherwise it's got a great theme to it.

It's something of a shame that bikini season is almost over, but I'm sure that's what we get for not leaving enough praise to the artist who creates these very exquisite digital beauties. I do genuinely appreciate the time and effort you put into these, and thanks.

Your art is brilliant but there are e few mistakes on the twi'leks body, such as the head isn't long enough and the ears are human and not cones but apart from that it's one of the best i've seen.

what operating system are you running that allows you to change your boot-up screen?

love the image, great feel to it. is it just me, or does she have a slightly possessive look about her?

aw...she's reading your emails and posts, isn't she?

Guys...we have a serious problem...I think giolon is now completely at the mercy of his creations, especially daru...although that might not be so bad...
