*after demand!! :-)
an insight on the way i work!!

"the image was done with photoshop mainly and 3dstudio max (all the dress+details) and a bit of poser for the the body+renders at 3d studio max..... --the face is the only "real" photograph(from a shoot that was done for a job from my agency).....+the various textures etc that are from my library of stuff (printmaking etc) either scanned or photographed -some of the patterns used for the hair were the only thing i had bought from a stock library(as a b/w vector image)....
.."

also there is an animated tutorial??or just work in progress of this image here [link]
and head shot here [link]

thank you

My eyes have been dazzled. Is that fire or jewels she wears? Or a combination of both? Great beauty, and yet no matter how brightly she shines in her golden jeweled finery... She seems dangerous to me.

Awesome, I love the sparkles and her expression. That looks to be one woman you do NOT want to cross. ;)

:-) thaank you for the request!!
i do not really know what this print feature really does!!!(i know i can be dumb sometimes!) :D

i havent submitted it in a hi resolution enough to make a decent print!!--it was in my early days-a month ago or so that i did not know much about all in here!!

if i want to make it available as a print shouldn't be of significant resolution??
if so how i can reload it higher in the same slot??so i do not loose all the messages??

and even more questions!! lol but it is really late!!so i will not pester you more with those!! :-D

thanks ever so much though for the keep coming back comment!!

wow.. I'm looking at the animated version and just amazed at the process. How long did this take? even a guess-ta-mation? Do you do the renders each seperately.. or just build upon in layers? is it created by intuition? or do you start with a plan?
I know.. I'm just full of questions!! :aww: I'm just .. your works beautiful.. was any in Expose 4? I dont remember seeing this style... But you mentioned '3 on one of your other pieces..
ok.. I quit babbling now!:blush:
Beautiful, stunning work..

:-) thank you for the kind words and the questions! :-)

sometimes there is a plan from skratch!others it is build on the way!!

i always work with lots of layers and the renders are used as if there were normal photos! (do i make sense??) :-)
most of the times i plan what i want made for each part and then i go off and make it and put it in and continue..etc etc..
hope i covered ya! :-)


i was in 3 but not in 4!! wishing i will be in 5 though!!well we will see!...
thanks
