Finally got around to revamping "The Swing". Added more wildlife, color, depth and gave it a sense of motion. It's more exciting & whimsical, much closer to how I originally envisioned it in my head.

Here is the old version.


DAZ Studio 4.5 Render

Content Used: The Heart of the Matter, Remembering How to Fly & LB Cherry Trees (trees, swing, grass), Skies of Economy, Infinito (distant terrain & sunflower), Pimp My Prop (grass material), Atmospheric Effects Cameras (depth map for DOF & distant fog effect), Morphing Python/Cold Blooded, Bee and Texture Map, DAZ Squirrel, Songbird, Rose Fairy V4 (ladybug), Sylvana (mushrooms), Asobi Outfit, Simply Cool D3/Laid Back (Dungerees), Fabricator, Zac Hair, Mitsu Hair for Genesis , Various Genesis Morphs, Taiga, V5/Supermodel, Chibi Girl, Nata, Chibi Boy, Sam.

Freebies Used: EmotiGuy (Sunflower face), Butterfly Figure ([link]), tree bark texture ([link]), Apple ([link])

You responded 4 years later!? :-)  I want to further refine my style at some point but I have been very busy with my day job and have been spending most my free time on game design recently.  Hope you have doing well.

You know a depiction takes itself FAAAR 2-Cereal when it also depicts plants as(not only tha living creatures we already know them 2-B but takes it a step further and depicts em as)having autonomy we can readily identify as being alive because they're now humanoid|
BUT
Well More Seriously NOW that main swinger is sporting a look more closely associated with "shorthand-witches" so by extension she looks...well a bit on the frightening side and it appears "slim" off to our left hiding would agree|
I'm not particularly a fan of the still images wherein the "target" is staring back at us mostly down to(especially if they're depicted engaging some activity)it lessens the "reality" of them in that actual moment 4 me anyway|

What's Up with the "convenient" placement of the blue butterfly?
1 MORE THING
I'm getting a bit of a "Bridge To Terabithia" vibe here|

Sweet and sexy. I love the "strategic" placing of the one butterfly. :horny:

Very beautiful. This is huge upgrade over the original work you did, and I like the way you employed Emotiguy as a sunflower. That's definitely thinking outside the box! Toadstools, flowers, squirrels, a rainbow and lots of butterflies, one of which seems strategically placed. I also like some of the smaller touches like the motion blur on the birds and butterflies. It's not over done, but subtle and noticeable.

The girls top seems a touch too shiny, but it's barely noticeable and doesn't distract from the beauty and impact overall. I love it.

Thanks for the fav & feedback. You have a good eye for detail. The dress was a bit too shiny. I just toned it down. I will wait to see if I make any other changes before re-uploading but here it is: [link] Is that better?
