Well, Spring is almost here, and people are already going to the beach here in the Gulf Coast United States, but not swimming in the ocean yet, a bit too cold for that :)

Genesis 8 Female.JPG
Started with a Genesis 9 Female...

Portrait 2 - Final 9.JPG
Added the semi-completed model, after I morphed the body, changed her position, facial expression, added eyebrows/eyelashes, and added clothes.

Portrait 2 - Final - PS - with Color.jpg
In Photoshop, I colored in the blue eyes and hair clip.


Tools and assets used:

Daz3D Studio, Iray and Photoshop
Genesis 9 Female Template
Vertigo Hair
SU Clothes
Daz3d and HDRI Lighting Background
Beach Environment

In Summary:

  • I start out with a model template and morph the body physically.
  • I put the body into a position, change facial expressions, add makeup, dress the model, add skin texture, props, etc…
  • I either can embed the character into the background or wrap the environment around the character, then add lighting and camera settings, like depth of field.
  • Rendering time was about an hour.
  • Postwork in Photoshop (adding imperfections in the skin, changing atmosphere and lighting, etc…)

Stay frosty people.
