Emperor IRay by Ascynd Emperor IRay by Ascynd
Zoom in for best results!

Just a test for my emperor in Iray (with the materials properly tweaked for it) and I must say I am in love... I think it just may solve every lighting problem I ever had with textures. NO postwork other than some lighting composition to match the background! It also makes everything else look good enough that I may have to retexture the claws to match. So excuse the half-arsed background, this is just a test that I thought the results were nice enough to share. I may have to do something serious with this guy soon!

As usual it's the Daz Dragon3 with my morphs and recolor/retexture, basic texture plus the RawArt wyvern on the wings, V4's horns, DesignAnvil's spines and scales on the hands and feet. DAZ Studio 4.8 IRay.

This looks great, I'm a little obsessed with rendering dragons, and always really appreciate great Iray textures for DD3.

Thanks! I lost some progress on this texture due to a crash... I aught to finish it up sometime and do some more of these. =D

That dragon is impressive and looks very powerful. And I see nothing wrong with the background, test render or not. I think it displays the dragon quite nicely.

Thanks, I've done some more small modifications to this texture recolor, I need to get him in a good render sometime soon. =)

Thanks! The markings on his wings are echoed on the sides of his body as well, visible here.

Thanks! I just can't believe how well the lighting comes out in this renderer from every angle. I usually have to retweak the textures depending on where the light is coming from and how strong it is, but not with this. It always looks good!
