Unbuttoned
Been busy and traveling, so not much time for rendering recently. Until today!

Toolchain: DazStudio 4.9, Octane (plug-in) 3 and Photoshop CC17. This image is composited in Photoshop from three separate Octane light passes, with some curves tweaking, Gaussian blur and colorisation.

'Your move...'
This is an update to a picture that I created at the end of 2016. I made that one my desktop background so have been looking at a lot and decided it needed some minor tweaks. This is the result. Changes are as follows:
* Changed the costume, hair and pose of the white queen.
* Lowered the horizon line
* Moved one of the white pawns into an opening position
* Properly centralized the white pieces over their squares
* Slightly changed the viewing angle and light directionality to better separate the pieces
* Rendered at a higher resolution for longer (6000 pixels wide for ten hours)

Toolchain: Blender 2.78 to create the chess pieces., Daz Studio 4.9 for the characters and posing, Octane 3 plug-in for the render. No postwork.

Behind the Veil
Created for the Dazaholics weekly themed challenge (dazaholics.deviantart.com/gall…).

This is a new version of the one I uploaded yesterday, but which today I decided I wasn't happy with. This take is so different in terms of colour that I've uploaded it separately rather than replace the earlier version.

My usual toolchain: Daz 4.9, Octane plug-in v3 and Photoshop release 2017 for minor postwork (levels and a blended soft blur). I also used Photoshop to create a mix-material map to blend the lace pattern with a diamond material (so that the lace has lots of little diamond flecks). She is lit by a monochrome HDR image with a spot light at camera right. The glow in front of her is from a sheet of silver positioned just so.

I've set myself the following challenge: post one pin-up style image per day for a week (seven in total), each with the same model and similar lighting (studio, bodyscape style), but using a single different colour per-day, and only using a minimal number of clothes / props of the chosen colour.

I usually spend days on a single render, and this is a good way to make myself work at pace given that I also have to do my day job :-)
