Ithiliel by joannastar Ithiliel by joannastar
I feel like I've been working on this forever! I've been doing bits and pieces to it for a while, and I had to rerender countless times because I couldn't light it acceptably, and every time I thought I had I'd find I'd forgotten to preview the shadows or something and it looked stupid. On the other hand, it seemed to render faster in Poser 7 than it would've in Poser 6 :nod:

(see some of the steps in making this here: [link] )

Your lighting and the faint impression of freckles (not sure if that was intentional) are exceptionally fabulous in this one!

Oh WOW! This is soo extremely gorgeous!
The skin is SOO perfect! The light, the lips, the freckles, her collar bone...

But perhaps the flowers should create a little shadow on the skin as well?
It makes it look less "pasted on".
I'm not implying it looks like that though...I just think it could be an improvement or something.

Btw I'm sorry if I sound criticing or anything, don't mean it like that of course ^^;

Thank you :D

The shadows of the flowers on her dress I think are actually being cast on her dress, if I remember the light direction right (it's been a while since I did this image ;P) Also I made them very very soft...

I appreciate the critique, though. It gives me things to think about in my newer works :nod:
