Happy Valentine's day from Belle!

Daz Studio 4.7 > Reality 4 > Luxrender

Advantix 100

Edit 02/15/15:  Rendered out to 18k S/p to refine the detail in the heart's refraction.  This also cleaned up noise all over the image.  Getting better at this!  I also darkened the bow slightly and increased the brightness in the triangle from her eyes to the floor at her arms.  I think it looks immensely better!

Glass Heart: Original source tf3dm.com/3d-model/3d-heart-31… posted on that site by milosxxl.   OBJ then modified by me in 3ds Max to my needs.

Thank you for the compliment!

And also, thank you for reminding me I should have noted my source for the heart a long time ago :)  I added a link to the original object in the image description above!

Thank you!  Just curious why you think so?

The blue of her eyes, she's nude but the image isn't exactly sexual, her eyes have a soothing calm look into them, her lips look very soft, the pose is very relaxing.

I let a version of this render overnight.  It is currently up to 16.34k S/p :o (Eek) .  It looks 50000x better than this.  I cant wait to replace this with the updated version.  I can't believe I posted this version! 

More to come!

Nice work my friend, the pose and the warm skin tone is really nice. If i could suggest some effect i would add a vignette effect to highlight the main character so the background will be less flat! You could also consider to reduce the glossiness of the hair ribbon so the details will be more visible. :-)

Excellent ideas!  After rendering for hours unseen I noticed the highlight on the bow.    Being lazy and wanting to get this up for Valentine's Day I didn't want to redo it.  I could save a version from Lux where the bow isn't blown out and composite it in Photoshop.  

I may have to continue rendering in Lux anyways.  At 5k S/p there is still grain through the glass heart.

I see, complex lights also soft lights could create some noises hard to be removed, unfortunately my PC is out of date and i cannot reach that quality of rendering, otherwise i should wait a week just for one picture.
The highest number of passes i have reached is about 1100 S/p.

About the Bow you could reopen the render with LUX work on the lights gain or with exposition values until you get something good for the bow. You save the underexposed file then you can blen the needed part with Photoshop.

About the grain my suggestion could be to use a filter through Photoshop to remove it but you have to be carefull otherwise you could loss some details.

Eeek!  This photo reached 5k S/p in like 7 hours.  I would cry if I couldn't render.  I wish I could buy you a new computer!!!! :happybounce:

And yes, that's what I was going for when I said compositing ;) (Wink)

I'm going to let it run further while my wife and I are out on our Valentine's date and see what happens.  If it hasn't cleaned up any in another 2k S/p I'll just say f it and light better for it next time.
