Practice, practice and more practice :-)

Some awareness of real-world studio photography helps as well, in terms of working the lighting.

hello

this is truly awesome.  Do you ever sell any of the art as a download - jpeg or vector?

Thank you
Donna

Well admittedly it was fast because I had already used the character in another scene - mainly lighting and pose

I really like the skin.
Reply
:iconjohnkent42:
JohnKent42 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you! Part of this is from the shaders I used in Octane but I also used a CS6 black-and-white filter to tweak the yellow and red channels, which always make skin look more textured

Thanks for your info and that you tell me your secrets. You did a really good job on the render and postwork. Everything fits well in this image.

I agree with Warranty 4 - the skin and hair are really well done with the light reflection. My only constructive criticism would be the front zipper looks like it is floating unattached to the circular cut -out fabric. The fabric appears more like a shadow that the material might create like on the far side of the chest. Still, I really like this for it's originality as far as portraits go. Creative and designed well.

Thank you!

Fair point about the zipper. The fabric is a mix of a mesh and gold foil with a fractal mixer (created in Octane) and it does look a bit artificial here. But thanks again, your constructive feedback is much appreciated

Great work with the sweat, are the wet strands of hair postwork or in house? If the latter it has worked VERY well. Also the lighting is very good, I particularly like the strong but small highlights on the right side of her face.

Thanks you! The wet strands of hair are pretty how much how the hair came out of the rendering process, but there is little but of colour manipulation and a high pass filter in CS6 that has made the effect stronger. I enjoy setting up dramatic studio lighting (in the bodyscape sense) - it also works very well in close-up, as here
