SickleYield Tutorial And FAQ Index
This has been requested more than once, and I'll probably have to delete and repost it periodically to keep it from falling out of sight over and over again, but at least this gives me a place to link.

Tutorial: Lighting and Rendering Night Scenes
Here is the YouTube version of this tutorial, and here is the accompanying tutorial on using Canvases.
Working with the Iray render engine, and seeing what people do with it on deviantart, over time I've seen the same mistakes repeated many times.  One of the most common that I see has to do with rendering night scenes or other scenes that are meant to be dark.
The thing is that the human eye is bad at seeing in the dark.  If you render literally what someone would be seeing, your scene will look terrible, but this is exactly what I see many people doing.  Hollywood movies often use two specific techniques to create night scenes: lit foreground objects against dark backdrops and "blue-for-night" lighting.  There's a third option (used more in horror) that I will also cover, the use of strong specular highlights and/or rim lighting.  Let's take them one at a time.

Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8
Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit.  There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version.  You'll have to turn your sound up.  Sorry. 
You need:
Daz Studio
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Cross-Figure
Instructions G8F to G8M:


Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.



Go to the Parameters tab.  If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.

I'm very excited to announce that my latest webinar has found a home at HiveWire3d.com

hivewire3d.com/shop/wilderness…

Lots of good basic art theory, and a step by step live painting!

The painting: Boat to Golden Island is the image that was painted (minus the boat, stream and golden tree which was added after the webinar, as I didn't have enough time).

Art, any art, any creativity, crafts? Yes, those, too. Create with words, create with color, create with thread, create with pixels. Learn, do, teach. Thankfully, with art there is so much more to learn, to do, so much beauty to create. Love life and life loves you back.
