As some of you may know, for each image I post there are usually many (sometimes dozens) of renders made. Sometimes this happens because I want to render a scene from different angles, sometimes because I'll scrap a set I'm working on only to bring it back in some way later on.

I thought it might be fun to show you a little bit of how this evolutionary process works, so here's 11 of the roughly 28 images that went into making my latest post. In the bottom right is the image I ultimately posted (see it full size by clicking here).

-In the upper left (image 1) you'll see the first time I put together her top, (converted to V4 and set up the textures/shaders). This was made in early fall 2007.

-Image 2, made over a month ago, is pretty much where I first developed the pose used. This posing session branched off into it's own project as I tried to see if V4 could lick her own breasts (results are at the other site).

-In image 3 you'll see the first time I started to develop this character three weeks ago(Joycelyn) and the next few after that show her own evolution.

-Rendered last week, in image 8, (the one with the sheep), I first tried to create the summer meadow environment, and after that I put them all together.

Well, now you've seen some of the madness behind my method. I'm curious to know how all of you do things, am I crazy for doing it this way or am I not alone here?

No, you're not crazy, but I'm glad you explained the sheep - I was a bit worried at first. ;) haha

I do like that first one too. Now go remember to go to the other site some time. lol

How did you do with the Grass ? With photoshop using the Eraser tool (very long process).
It's cool that youre posting youre "how to"

I think this is great, showing us your technique to achieve a hot final !
What ever works for you, in making more kool pin-ups like these, is fine by me and many others I'm sure.
As for my way, I usually have the whole scene worked out in my head, but I do lots of test renders to get the lighting and POV just right, only occasionally do I have to go back and tweak the character poses and re-import/re-texture them into Lightwave.
Way kool WIP collage & ~Cheers~

I agree with Jif3D (Jeff) because he succintly pointed out the most important point: That whatever works for you is key in creatng these works of art. You aren't crazy- but gifted, that is the key! You care about your works and renders and as a result create brilliant images like this one-tossing out what you did not feel worked for what you were expressing.

Yeah - nice to see how someone else works. Sometimes I get something on a first render and sometimes it looks more like this. Anyway, thanks for sharing!!

Your WIP's wander over the landscape far more than mine do. Mine are more like just the last 3.

I know I'm perverted but I like the grass most (in the final render) and I second Ondoval's question. How did you do it?

Very good to get a look into your worklow!

Watching the thought process is always an interesting endevor.
"Busty Elves" is a cool franchise you've created and I'm sure we'll see much more!

Pretty cool to see what into making the final image. Heck at one point this was going to be an indoor image but I'm really happy with your final render for this image.

Doesn't sound like madness to me. Tedious, of course, but that's what it takes to get it right.

If I might say, the lighting looks a bit more like a high thin overcast than direct sunlight, due to the shadowing and the color of the light.

The image itself is delightful. I wish I had your talent for poses and composition.
