    Here.

    I scanned a quick sketch into Photoshop and mucked around with it for about five minutes.

    Enjoy...

    Just start with small projects like an avatar, a greeting card to a friend. There are many ways to get into graphics

    Ok, ok. got Bryce installed again, and the image is rendering. considering the level of detail, it'll be mid-day tomorrow before the render is complete, so I might just have it posted tomorrow night.

    Just a rough draft, I'm afraid...

    I wasn't happy with the results of the render, but I'm not going to make you wait another day for an improved version. Nor did I feel like wasting a seven hour render just because I'm feeling a bit picky.
    So, without further ado, WTF?! (phase 1)


    + 10 points to the first one who notices something odd about the image, and correctly point it out.

    I'm having issues with Brice, ATM, so I had to use the default (VERY green) texture map. I'd have much rather used a rich brown, or perhaps a warm copper color, but Ces't la Vie. (My French spelling sucks) That's only one of several things I'm not happy about, concerning the render.

    Well, keep on working. The green certainly is fitting with the theme It is a mighty rendering for sure.

    Re-rendering now. I finally found a way to "extract" the texture maps without using Bryce, and settled on a Steel Blue shade. Looks a LOT more balanced, and I'm a lot more satisfied with her now.

    The last render took over 7 hours, so I'll prolly be positing in the morning.

    For that image, Bryce/Daz Studio is what I used. The "improved" version will also have some post work with PSP 7. (What can I say? I'm too cheap to buy Photoshop)

    Edit:

    It's STILL at only 57% in the render! This is gonna take a while!

    I feel much better about this one.


    Edit:

    I also have the image saved without the cheesy balloons, if anyone is interested.

    You have it much better now, but the balloons do distract, they are much too light and they are really all you can see, You have to fight through this image to see the actual picture now. Yes, show the image without the balloons
