Water ripples - a guide plus freebies
Unless you have a model, who is capable to stand perfectly still in a lake, there is no way you don't see ripples around him/her.
Not to mention the impact of cold water on the model, both physically and in terms of temper...
I see some great renders with water, but they appear to lack something. You guessed it; water ripples.
In this guide I will show you how I add ripples to the water surface in a scene.
My tools:
Daz Studio 4.10 with Iray
Photoshop CC 2018
(I assume you know your way in Daz Studio, or know how to apply the technique in the software of your choice)
My original (Filtered Wettie - 2), is definitely NSFW, so for this tutorial, we are building a new SFW version.
The environment I use is Bend of the River.
Mind you! It is GPU and CPU heavy, so I switched off the heavy stuff. It still looks great though.
I used a simple plane with blue sky texture, to get the background sky.
The model is the lovely Scarlett, a Genesis 3 Female character.
Her expression is

Bunny 2019
It's that bunny time of the year again.
Mature tagged, in spite of the absence of nudity and visible eggs.
That is probably because the manual for the tail has been written in 2017 Easter egg
So berseh knows why she has to run...slow.

Happy Easter everyone!
---

“How you like my costume for tonight’s Easter party?”
Berseh came crashing into the bedroom and looked into the mirror.

Em turned and looked at her.
“It’s .. eh ..”
His mind wandered down below, before he found the word he was looking for.
“… stimulating.”

Berseh turned around and back again, noticing Em’s hesitation.

Em turned towards the cabinet. “I got you something to go with that.”

“Why? You think it is too..?”

“No. I like it. Nice ears, great heels. What’s more to like?”

“Me.”
She said it with a smile.
“What’s that behind your back?”

“Just a little extra, to complete your costume.”
He showed her.
“Let me help you with this.”

Berseh was shocked! How could he?
Then she saw the smile on his face. That wicked smile.
She turned and ran away.

“Noooooooooooo!”

Nakano diary 2

April, 2019

I watched her face closely. Her expression, her body language.
And above all, her reactions to the touching of her skin, the moistness when he entered her,
and her erect nipples when the other one folded his lips around them, one by one.
She was ready. Maybe one more session, before letting her go.

A simple nod from me was enough to send the men away.
Leaving the woman behind, who was still breathing hard.
Rocking her body slowly to the rhythmic moves she followed a few moments ago.
For a few minutes, I kept watching her. Until she landed from the erotic cloud she had been on.
Her fingers trailing the fluids he left, slowly dripping down the inside of her thighs.

My fingers trailed the same fluids, caressing her swollen lips.
She held her breath; because she thought it was over. And it was.
I walked around and made her suck my fingers clean.
Sensing her tongue between my fingers, stirring my own reactions.
I quickly abandoned the thoughts and opened my eyes.

She blinked when I took the blindfold away. Licking her lips, before looking up to me.
I should not have wiped that drop from her lips, letting her clean one last finger; a moment of weakness.
“You did well. Please leave your cheque at the desk when you leave.”
I pushed her towards the dressing room. My secretary will book another session for her.

One of those sessions I really like; a sensual erotic vibe coming from all participants.
And me?
I am allowed to watch. To observe those bodies, the touching.
I can imagine the sensations of the men playing with her, taking it slow, building up the tension, until…
My thoughts linger when my last button doesn’t come off quick enough.
But then I am ready. Naked, the way I was born.

I toss the door to the men’s room wide open and return to the couch.
Just before I put on the blindfold, I see a glimpse of the men approaching.
Big, virile. And ready for action once more.
I am not used to being the client; giving away control is not that easy…

My body reacts to the powerful throbbing between my breasts.
When I feel that tongue at the top of my crack, hot and wet, I surrender.
And abandon
my urge to stay in control.
No need for instructions, they know what to do.

Spinnin'

I guess berseh is enjoying the local culture across the big pond. Must be fun!
===
"No! This is not normal! This…"

"Ease down, lady. It’s just a local game of spinnin’. You did enjoy yourself last time, didn’t ya?
 Now me and the boys are showing you some rope tricks too. Local stuff, ya know?
 Such a fine-looking gal like yourself shouldn’t worry too much, I reckon."

"But, you undressed me!?"

"Sure thing, hon, we don’t want them fine European clothes getting wet, now don’t we?"

"Wet? What do you mean, wet?"

"Well, bombie, You see them row of beers on that bar? I reckon that’s coming your way and then…"

"Whaaaat!? Don’t you dare throw that…"

"And then me and these fine young studs here will lick it from your body."

"…beer on me. What are you? Primitives? A bunch of cowbo…

  Licking you said?"

"Yee, ma’am, sure did."



"Ok. Make it quick then."

Unless you have a model, who is capable to stand perfectly still in a lake, there is no way you don't see ripples around him/her.
Not to mention the impact of cold water on the model, both physically and in terms of temper...
I see some great renders with water, but they appear to lack something. You guessed it; water ripples.

In this guide I will show you how I add ripples to the water surface in a scene.
My tools:
Daz Studio 4.10 with Iray
Photoshop CC 2018
(I assume you know your way in Daz Studio, or know how to apply the technique in the software of your choice)

My original (Filtered Wettie - 2), is definitely NSFW, so for this tutorial, we are building a new SFW version.
The environment I use is Bend of the River.
Mind you! It is GPU and CPU heavy, so I switched off the heavy stuff. It still looks great though.
I used a simple plane with blue sky texture, to get the background sky.
The model is the lovely Scarlett, a Genesis 3 Female character.
Her expression is due to being in the cold water for over five minutes, as mentioned earlier.
The hair is a combination of Goldtassels's Brady Hair for Genesis 3 Females and Drop Wet Hair for Genesis 3 Females from Outtoftouch.
(The Wet Body Iray shell from the original has been skipped for faster rendering. The wet body was the reason for using the bottom part of the Drop Wet Hair.)

Let's get started, shall we?


Ripples-main by myturncoat  Ripples-main-fin by myturncoat
Scarlett, straight out of the first render.                                                                     Scarlett, after the ripple planes have been used.

Not only does the river move and the wind is blowing, but I can assure you, Scarlett kept moving on the slippery rocks underneath.
So where are the ripples in image 1?

I created the scene as usual, until it was ready to render.
Then I made a new plane (Create - New Primitive - Plane) with Size 100 cm and Divisions 1,
Create-new-plane by myturncoat
and renamed "plane" to "ripples".

Now I check the X Translate and Z Translate coordinates for Scarlett (x=190.00 and z=308.00) and set the same values for the new plane.
You will notice Scarlett is in the center of the plane.
The "ripples" plane needs to be rotated, to match the rotation value (Y Rotate) of Scarlett. In this case Y Rotate= -38.600
In her pose, she has her hips twisted a little more, so I use a Top View camera to get a more precise value (Y Translate = -54.000)
Why this exact rotation?
The ripple-effect-planes have been created on a square and need to be parallel with the 'object' it surrounds to get a realistic match.

Plane-level by myturncoat
Because I need the plane to be level (or just on top) with the existing river surface, I have to find the correct Y Translate value (negative).
First I use the slider to get a rough value, where the plane is no longer visible.
Then I 'fine tune' by manually entering values to make it visible again.
This leads to a value of Y Translate= -4.875

To get a good integration of my "ripples" with the water, you can copy the texture from the water to "ripples".
You will notice, the plane may still be visible, but has a proper texture.

In this specific case, the texture for the water is used for the entire scene. Which may need corrections on my plane.

The same goes for a water texture where the surface consists of multiple tiles; you cannot use multiple tiles for the ripple plane.

Most of the time, setting the tiles to Horizontal=1 Vertical=1 works out fine.

I decided to use the Iray 'Thin Water' shader instead.

Plane-watered by myturncoat

(See what happens when I use my opacity plane from the next part of the tutorial...)
Plane-opacity by myturncoat

It is time to introduce the ripple planes and use them.


I found an older tutorial on DeviantArt for creating the ripple planes very similar to what I have done, made by OmerTariq.
With this tutorial you can create a round ripple, with a realistic effect.
This plane can then be used to create a 'normal plane' and a 'bump plane'.
I merged two round ripples into a double and shaped it into the ripple planes I use here;
humans obviously have a different shape comparing front and back (duh!), so just combining them would not work.

I thought "ass-ripples" did not sound very respectful, so I named them "ripples_double".

On top of that, I made an opacity plane to get a better integration into an existing surface.

Selecting "ripples" (textured with 'Thin Water') and the Surface tab in DS, I add my ripples_double planes:
ripples_double_bump.jpg to Base Bump
ripples_double_normal.jpg to Normal Map
ripples_double_opacity.jpg to Cutout Opacity
With Base Bump set to 5.00, Normal Map set to 1.00 (default) and Cutout Opacity set to 1.00 (default),
you can see the ripples show up in the View Port (set to NVIDIA Iray).

View-port-ripples by myturncoat
*** please pay attention! The ripples are around the model ***

I notice several discrepancies... and used a higher point of view to see more details.
1. the model really moves, because the ripples are widely spread. [ ripples need scaling]
2. (in a more distant view) The ripples are too wide, compared to the model and the width of the stream. [ripples need scaling]
3. the ripples do not follow the shape of her body. [ripples need scaling]

To get a better view, I select the Surface tab and change the value of the Refraction Index on "ripples" from 1.33 to 4.00
Then I create two higher positioned cameras to get a good overall view on the ripple shape.

Top-view-back by myturncoat

I am not going to scale the Y Scale value, as this may distort the ripples. So only X Scale and Z Scale values will be adjusted.
Using the NVIDIA Iray View Port and the higher two cameras, I settle on an X Scale of 72.0% and A Z Scale of 65.0%
(I also moved the ripple plane a bit to the back.)

One final check with a spot render (do not forget to set the Refraction Index back to 1.33 before starting to render), to see if the scaled ripples need adjusting .
Rippled-fin-try by myturncoat
And they do!
I increased the Base Bump to 10.00 and the Normal Map to 1.20 (which needs changing the 'Use Limits' Maximum in the Normal Map 'Settings Parameters' to 2.00)
Normal-parameters by myturncoat

The final render results in the second image at the beginning of this guide.

Using a bigger plane to start with, playing around with Base Bump values, Normal Map values, applying the Bump map as Displacement Map, any of these will change the outcome of the ripples.
Even using this technique in a HDRI environment is possible (In my gallery, conveniently named "Ripples" - NSFW).

Have fun, and be creative!

Whew!

My first visit here. I don't think I've come across an artist here at dA who's been so prolific over just two years. And at such a high quality. I'm referring of course not just to your renders but also to your writing, which (to me, as a writer) is really delightful and entertaining. I have so much more to say about the images, of course, because there are so many and are llinked in so many sequences. But perhaps I shall wait to say anything more in detail.

For now, simply know that I'm really enjoying your work (as I'm sure my friend Berseh has), and now that I'm watching I'll be able to keep up with your pace.

Good stuff.
