Notes: Spring was here for a few days with temperatures in the 70s and a night of tornado warnings but then it disappeared back into winter. It’s been below freezing with snow flurries the past week. Only now is it starting to warm back up and feel like spring is once again on its way. Dreaming of the spring blossoms and cool breezes in the bright sunlight, I came up with this artwork. It took quite a while to create the scene itself and then almost three straight days of rendering.
Technical Notes: The woman character you see is a combination of the morphs from my Nicola character and the skin textures from another character not made by me. I’m not sure why I didn’t just use the textures from Nicola. I think it had something to do with not enough freckles? Anyway, I once again used dynamic cloth on the gown and the crochet shawl. I tried to use wind force on the shawl but it didn’t quite work out the way I wanted it to. The more I thought about it though, a heavy crochet shawl like that wouldn’t blow much in a gentle breeze like her hair would. I rendered the scene with depth of field and without. Without depth of field the sheer number of colorful flowers in the background overwhelmed the foreground so I decided on this version. Minimal postwork was used to just enhance the contrast a bit and add a soft vignette.
