Incredible artistry on all of these. There is always something on a woman warrior that I don't like but I haven't experienced that with your work!

Did you this picture with a 3Dprogram?
Reply

Radthorne Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
Yes, I use DAZ Studio for my renders.

Interesting, how does it work? I haven't ever use a program like this before. Do you modulate the whole person, with a raster?
Reply

Radthorne Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
The program uses 3D models that you manipulate, like a digital version of an artist's wooden mannequin. You can pose the figure any way you want, attach clothing and hair (which are also 3D models), adjust your camera position, and add lighting to the scene. Take a look at the DAZ3D website, where they have lots of videos that show the process. :)

That means, that the skelleton of the models are already exist, if you begin? Could you manipulate also the statue of the model?

Could you give me a link of one of those videos?

Radthorne Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
Yes, the rigging is already built into the models. All you need to do is pose them, either manually or using pre-built pose sets. I generally start with the latter and modify them as needed to get the precise positioning I want.

Here's a link to a page with a couple of videos, from where you can also download the software, which is free in its base form (they make their money off of selling the models):

While the pose is interesting and it certainly does portray the feeling of the title....


...The left leg...Maybe it should perhaps be resting upon the right? It looks 'awkward' just being left there. While having it raised does help with the pose...it still detracts.

Just some musings. Very much cheers to you and yours.

Great image. If only you had the time to put together a group of characters that could be in some sort of major fantasy epic. Better yet, have several images of the characters added to that sort of novel. That would be spectacular!!!:)

Thank you! I still hope to tackle a graphic novel one of these days, or at the very least create a series of illustrations for one of my regular novels.

Wow. That's one awesome elf lookout. Great skin and the muscle structure on her left thigh is amazing. Drool.

One point that I'm not so sure about is the tree. The surface shading doesn't really have any texture (compare the bottom part, which is better, to the top), which puts it in contrast with the woman, so it kind of stands out. Also, not sure what's going on with her right lower leg. It's kind of inside the cut-off branch, but it looks like a toe is peaking out from behind it. This is minor stuff, the overall effect of this piece is awesomesauce.
