  • Creation Date: January 06, 2018
  • Software Tools: Poser 11 Pro, Photoshop CS6

Notes: I may have created an artwork slightly similar to this back in 2012 but this is now a brand new artwork with my current characters, Shelby Bly and Joel Rio. I wanted to show Joel having no trouble gunning down the bad guys while Shelby is still holding back. The title is about what Joel tells Shelby, to never hold back. It’s not necessarily a clip from the story, just a promotional piece.

Technical Notes: I used Colm’s Sunset Studio to create the lighting for this piece. The depth of field effect was rendered inside Poser. I barely did any postwork at all. I just enhanced the colors with a Photoshop action, slightly increased the contrast, and then added a thin border. That was it. The gunfire effect seen near Joel’s gun is actually a 2-part prop that I created some time ago and rendered as part of the scene. It’s not postwork.
