Glass the Shalkad Life-Shaper 3D by ZauberParacelsus Glass the Shalkad Life-Shaper 3D by ZauberParacelsus
This is a remake of an earlier image I made, done entirely in toon-shaded 3D.  Depicted is Glass, a Shalkad "Life-Shaper", or a mage that can transmute or enhance lifeforms.  Here, she is using her magic to make a mushroom glow.  As I've mentioned in previous submissions depicting the Shalkad, their fur includes glowing spots.  The shader on her dress is translucent, to simulate how fabric will allow some light to pass through.

Rendered using Blender's Cycles engine.

I find the hard edges on the glowing spots a bit intense.  Like how the light comes through the clothes, adds that nice little bit of something to it :)

Aye, thanks.  The hard edges are due mostly due to the brightness.  Normally, a Shalkad's spots will be more subdued in brightness, but they glow more strongly as a result of either a heightened emotional state, or the use of magic.

That's rather cool.  I hope they can turn them off, otherwise they'd be a beacon if they were scared and hiding :)

Well, only the "upper" emotional states (happiness, anger, love) cause the spots to brighten.  The "downer" emotional states (sadness, anxiety, fear) cause them to brighten.  The spots are also instinctively dimmed when a Shalkad is actively trying to avoid detection.  With practice, however, a Shalkad can consciously brighten or dim the spots.

I'll assume you mean the "downer" states cause dimming XD That makes a lot of sense.  Can they dim them right down to nothing or are they always on just a tiny bit even when dimmed all the way down? This species is kind of interesting XD

Yeah, I meant dimming, lol.  And yes, they can dim down to nothing.
