Title from a Doors song - "Wild Child"*.

Background is a photo.

I had to blow this up. This caused some jpeg-i-ness that I had to smooth out of the sky and I had to adjust the contrast and saturation (PShop). But basically, you just import it in as your background picture and render over it, Dan. But save it as a .png where you only have your figure(s). Then go into your art program and paste the background pic over the .png, then drag it under the .png and make your adjustments, then merge the layers.

I would also suggest that before you apply the background pic, that you duplicate your .png at least 2 or 3 times so the hair is less transparent. This is esp. true with the Yannis hair and the dreds.

The background usually doesn't render as well as the original picture, which is why I do it this way. I don't know about other people. As I said, the tricky part is getting your lighting on your figure to match the background! This one wasn't so bad as far as that went because it's just one big glow from all the light pollution. It depends on the background you use. Hope that helps Dan!

Chopper is custom textured by me.


Thanks for stopping by my gallery, and for your comments, favs and views of my last post! Much appreciated. The girl on the right in particular was inspired by the works of Luis Falero. He did very lovely nude ladies.

Hope your week is going well!


*Wild Child

Wild child full of grace
Savior of the human race
Your cool face

Natural child, terrible child
Not your mother's or your father's child
Your our child, screamin' wild

An ancient lunatic reigns
In the trees of the night
Ha, ha, ha, ha

With hunger at her heels
Freedom in her eyes
She dances on her knees
Pirate prince at her side
Starin' into
The hollow idols eyes

Wild child full of grace
Savior of the human race
Your cool face
Your cool face
Your cool face

Do you remember when we were in Africa?

It may have been inspired by the awesome Doors, but the image instantly makes me think of Stepnwolf :)
I think I have an old image of my Sonya on chopper. Maybe I'll post it and they can go cruising together?
Cool work.

When I read the way you made this image and placed
all the objects together,got this image more value
to me.A look in the kitchen is always very interesting.
Great job you did!

Another way is to have the bg you are going to use set as you 'import bg image', then save as a png. The image doesn't show in your render, but it has the right colors so there are no 'jaggies' on your png.
Then choose your png hit 'select all', then 'select all' on your jpg bg & choose 'paste INTO image/selection'. Make sure you have a new raster layer set for it, but don't paste it as a new layer.
It will place the png exactly where you had it set in the render. You can also do this for casting shadows that don't render right & for adding hair & clothing, etc, in post work. ")
Love this one, btw. ")

Great character! I love all the insights too. But I think I would have to pay you to do
all those steps for me. :) LOL. Perfect song too! I love any live version of either
"The End" or "When The Music's Over". Robby Krieger plays his ass off. Yeah! Did you ever
see the clip of them on The Ed Sullivan Show when he has the black eye? LOL. I think that's
when Jim agreed not to sing the word "higher" in Light My Fire too. Heh heh heh. Sure, Ed.
No problem. You can trust me. LMAO! Great render and fun upload!

Really awesome work, Ray, and a great dedication to Dan! I'm sure he'll love it!

Lots of good info here, too. I absolutey agree - getting the lighting of your rendered figures is tricky and the single *most* important aspect of compositing your rendered figures to match an existing BG.

Superb work and compositing here! "Get on your bikes and RIDE!" :-D
