It Was a Dark and Stormy Night
Starting to experiment with Iray. After working with Reality and Luxrender for so long, it's going to take a while to get comfortable. So far, I have mixed feelings. The newer Daz models that are optimized for Iray look good when rendered in that engine. And there's less surface adjustments to make with Iray; with Reality, I had to make adjustments to virtually every surface in the scene to get the results I wanted. On the other hand, what I really miss is the flexibility of Reality and Luxrender during the render process; the ability to adjust lighting and color temperature on the fly. And particularly the freedom to be composing another scene while one is rendering in Luxrender. I notice too that Iray seems to put a bigger load on my computer processor than Luxrender did. However, I suppose I can get used to those things.
Time is Ticking
... and the passing minutes feel like circling tigers.

Inspired by one of Jon Foster's brilliant works here:

Did this a couple of days ago while I was stalled with another project and looking at a looming deadline.

*update* While I was happy with the concept of the original piece I did with this title, I was never really satisfied with the end result. It's been bugging for a while, and I decided I needed to revisit the piece. 
I woke up the other morning with this image in my mind, and I just had to make some time to try to realize it.

Dear Lee, thank you very much for :+fav:ing my "Anne B." and I'm so honored to find myself added to your watch list!
I love your work for so many years - it was shocking for me when you cleaned your gallery a while ago. Fortunately some of us include me were able to change your mind and you gave us back your best works. They all are so inspiring in humour, creativity, twisted ideas and above all - the perfect execution! If I have not done it yet: THANK YOU! also for that... :heart:

Thank you for the kind words, Anja! I love your work (Anne B. is an amazing piece, by the way) and must apologize for the oversight in not including you in my watch list earlier. Looking forward to seeing many more masterpieces from you! :)

You are so very welcome and you don't have to apologize for nothing. I'm happy to be in now and you know - better late than never ;) and I hope to do my very best OMG MOAR POEMS!

Your work i just amazingLove  I remember I already faved in the past one or two of your renders but I had not yet seen your work in its entirety. I find a lot of similarities with my own 3D work but all your renders make me realize all the things which are missing in my work. I hope you don't mind if your work  inspires me to improve myself. I learn so much from a lot of artists. I think you will be one of them.
