Excellent! Attitudes, bodies, lights, that hard fight I see in all that, can I say more?

I love your use of much more realistic models for the women. Instead of wasp waists, stick-thin legs, and improbably massive busts, these are muscular, strong ladies with a little cellulite and an appropriate level of healthy body fat, who look believable in combat with those weapons. Very pleasing to see!

It was easier because the character description already went into that direction. I once read an interview with Frazetta (who was an athlete himself) who said that it was easy to spot the difference between somebody who actually had physical strength and prowess and somebody who simply built some muscles, especially in the waist area.

Epic awesomeness, love the characters attitudes and the power they are generating from their poses.  The vibrancy of the colors and light add so much the the intesity

Das ist mal wieder eine fantastische Arbeit Clap  und das MakingOf Bild ist auch sehr interessant. Habe im Grunde 0 Ahnung wie andere Leute so mit DAZ Arbeiten, wie sie vorgehen etc. ;) (Wink) 

Die Posen, das Licht, die Lichstrahlen sehr toll und stimmungsvoll. Love 

P.S.: (völlig subjektiv) das Einzige was mich etwas stört, aber wohl schwer zu ändern ist => die Bodentextur sieht ein wenig nach 1990 Pixelmatsch aus. Das er stark reflektiert ist vermutlich aber Absicht?

Ist der Iray Standard Marmor Shader. Aber man merkt wie unterschiedliche Bilder aufgenommen werden, mir ist das gar nicht in den Sinn gekommen weil ich wirklich sehr auf Perspektive, Posen und Licht fixiert bin und andere Sachen teilweise auch -über-sehe :)

Klassisches "man sieht den Wald vor lauter Bäumen" nicht. ;) (Wink)  Geht mir auch ständig so.Waaaah! Umso ärgerlicher wenn man es erst nach 12h rendern merkt oder man 4h ein Foto retuschiert und 10 verschiedene Versionen erstellt hat und dann am nächsten Tag merkt.. "ups, hab da etwas übersehen und jetzt stört es mich mega und seh es immer wenn ich das Bild anschaue".

Vor kurzem ein Bild extra noch einmal gerendert und bearbeitet, musste dann aber feststellen... von der Bearbeitung her gefällt mir die Ursprungsversion viel besser, konnte es einfach nicht mehr 1:1 "nach-"bearbeiten. No, I disagree!

:D jaa... ich hab an diesem Bild 18 Stunden gerendert, nur weil ich Nebel an hatte, den ich gar nicht wollte. Ich hatte den so tief in den Gruppen versteckt das ihn übersehen habe....

Oh... 18h Oops! und dann auch noch wegen so einer "Unachtsamkeit". Wink/Razz  Aber so was passiert halt, vor allem wenn man etwas länger an einem Projekt arbeitet.

Great.
Only (if I will be allowed,
because of my f*ing desire for ideality), I would advise adding a little asymmetry to Valery's face (maybe the jaw move is slightly to side). In Genesis models, a wide open mouth is quite a problem in terms of realism - almost always looks unnatural. But still you did well.

Interesting, that didn't occur to me. But it's a good and simple tip!

This is epic!
I'm beginning to see how strong contrast (or soft contrast) effects the mood of an image. I'm guessing the stronger colors and contrast add up to make the scene more dynamic and action looking? Posing, lighting and expression all seem to pull me in and I want to keep watching.  :) (Smile)

I'll put up a WIP with the original render that you might like to compare.

There is an interesting article to lighting here: www.muddycolors.com/2018/07/cr…

It contains a lot of good basic rules and examples and if you scroll down you'll find a tonal reference chart that is very useful.

Thanks. Following your good example I've prepared a WIP collage (I'll get it up today) and you'll see the trouble explaining all this stuff to the actors and film team ;).

It's funny you say that you "followed my example", because when I did my WIP, I was inspire by you doing one with your picture Thormanofthunders' Kylah. ^^
