While everything else looks perfect, I believe that "Margret" looks too wooden and doll like, especially around the eyes. Her eyes are ...

Great idea and implementation. The lighting could be reduced a bit, as the floor is a bit washed out. The wall's stones seem a bit too ...


Ratha - one more time
I recently purchased a new "Fire Tool" from HiveWire and wanted to see how it looked.

I dug out my old file of Ratha and switched out the stretched balls I was using for the flame and put in the new tool. I like how the new fire looks.
I also changed the fire's light, moved the stick so the flame wouldn't be so close to her face and a some other changes.
Once HiveWire comes out with a cheetah model I'll re-skin that for Ratha.

Posed and rendered in PoserPro 2014.
Lion and kitty
I purchased HiveWire's House Cat last night. So, I decided to do an image of the lion and kitty nose to nose. After seeing how they rendered I decided to put them in a scene to see how they looked.

Props and room are from different sources, with some re-skinning done for more realism. The lava lamp was added on a whim and was re-textured to match a lava lamp we owned, though it had a more dull plastic gold finish instead of the shiny finish shown.

The main lighting is from a single overhead light at 50% intensity, linear square fall-off with AO and ID turned on. There are some background and ambient lights as well.

Posed and rendered in PoserPro 2014.
Leo - Then and Now
Years ago, Lion made an appearance in my life. I've since learned he is my spirit guide or totem.

I had originally thought him as a pet and friend; whom I named Leo. I imagined him as a white lion with blue eyes and black mane and tail tuft; the lion to your left. As I matured and got to know Lion better I realized he had normal lion coloring with dark brown, near black, mane and tail tuft. His eyes remained that ice blue of the white lion. This is the lion on your right.

Both are HiveWire Big cat with the lion add-ons with the mane and tail tuft color changed by me.

Background is a Daz3d Cyc with a neutral gray color to bring out the lions.

Posed and rendered in Poser 201Pro with Indirect lighting enabled and one spot light.
Hotel room ad-ver2
Here is the final edition of the ad.

I had to enlarge the bed as it wasn't a king size bed before.

I also changed the ad text to reference the size of the bed and not the room.

Everything is the same as before.

The picture was changed to reference Pennsylvania Railroad's Penn Station New York, as the world map did not reference a railroad.
Hotel Ad-2
Someone commented that the previous render emphasized the size between the lion and the bed, and that should not be the main focus of the ad.

I agree, and though that person said that anthros might be a good idea, I wanted the ad to reflect what would/could be done in the real world.

With that in mind, I moved the lion to the floor, moved the lioness over, changed their head/neck positioning, and reframed the scene.

Everything else is the same as before.

Personal Quote: If it's a tie at a grade crossing, YOU lose!
As reported before, on May 15th I lost my house of 12 years due to foreclosure and lies.

I am trying to buy a used mobile home, that is already sited in a mobile home park. To that end, I've started a "GoFundME" campaign to help me raise the money at… ,

If you can help me raise the money needed to buy the mobile home and allow me to move into it I would be forever in your debt.

Glad you like the lions, LK. I had photos of the pair of white lions at the Snake Farm, but the cage wire distracted my autofocus, and none of them really came out.
