This is the first time that I used Poser Image Based Lighting. This is not IBL-only because of some reflection issues on the materials for the metal bits, so I added those small items back in with a regular raytraced render. Only 3 lights (IBL, white key light offscreen right, and the red 360 point light on the back wall).

For any Poser hounds interested:
V3 with Kristalynn skin
Bliss Vision hair
Shadow Dancer shirt, gunbelt, leggings
Slim Jeans
Fantasy armband
Watch and Ring I do not recall sources
The Arc environment
everything with custom or modified textures

Nice. I especially like the nipple-poke on the T, that's just so hard to make work with DAZ studio, which is what I use - unless of course you got one of the few costume-bits that were MADE for that. :)

I used a displacement map on the shirt for the nipples. Worked easier than trying to do magnets or morphs.

Ahhhh, yeah, that makes sense - I think, I barely understand displacements, it's something I've been exploring lately. :)

once you have used a displacement, you'll never go back. Seriously though... displacement maps kick ass, as they can simulate geometry without modeling. It is awesome. Look in my archive gallery and open Dragaera. The fur on the corset trim is generated using a displacement map only. The displacement map was a flat image that looked like a starry speckled night with an extreme elevated displacement of almost an inch, creating the spiky fur look. That's just one other example of displacement map use. You should definitely try it out.

Yeah, cool affect. I did a render recently with a chainmail suit (see my The Paladin - Revised pics) that I used the displamenent/bump maps to get the proper look out of. I found it very cool so it's something I am looking for ways to practice.
