Dragon soul by Nihil-Novi-Sub-Sole Dragon soul by Nihil-Novi-Sub-Sole
Done for the DAZaholics' challenge called "DRAGON SOUL".

Rendered in DAZ Studio (IRay). I artificially pushed the graininess of the IRay rendering to get a "drawing-like" aspect instead of a "reality-like" render. Clothing has been done with VWD (for D/S) which enabled me to manually modfy the draping after the dynamic animation.

Enjoy!

1st Trophy Pick of the week on Thu May 24, 2018.

Interesting how the dragon model seems like an extension of the tattoo.  I thought of doing a dragon tattoo for this contest as well.  The cloth drape and silk mat is great.

Thank you. My first idea was to make a dragon emerging from a tatoo but it was too complex (for me!) to do that!

Would you mind sharing, or pointing in the direction of, how to push the "drawing" aspect of renders? This is stunning!

In fact, when the lighting conditions are a bit too low, IRay generates some noises in the rendered picture (graininess). Usually, I try to get rid of them to get a better picture by putting more lights. This time I let the IRay renderer generate more noises on purpose. It's very experimental and I am not sure it could be a trick in itself...

Time to go tinker with reduced but colorful lighting. Thanks!
