Thank you! I've been struggling with "God Rays" for the longest time and I think I managed that effect pretty well here!
MollyFootman 9:00AM | Wed, 12 January 2022
Thank you. I expect you meant the overall effect and not just volumetrics! ;) Truth be told, it was meant to be a mood piece and it's the first time I've every gotten the atmosphere/volumetric density to the place where I actually got "God Rays" in the render. Woohoo! =)

WOAH!!! Just love it a lot, looks awesome Molly, you did really a great job here!
MollyFootman 9:02AM | Wed, 12 January 2022
I appreciate your lovely comment, Ute! I'm really stretching a bit as a rendering artist here and it's so validating that an involved, productive artist leave me such praise. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! =)

Wow! Thank you, Steve! It's lovely to hear such a nice comment as I spent an indecent amount of time fiddling with this to get the atmospher/volumetric density to where you could see thing and I still got me some "God Rays"! XD

The camera angle brings out the most of the setting and atmosphere. Very appropriate for steampunk without the need for gadgets and such. it works!

Thank you, so much, JD. Such a comment means the world to me. Steampunk isn't always about gadgets, as you clearly understand. <3

Wow! That's fantastic. The figure has so much character. Lighting is superb.
MollyFootman 9:08AM | Wed, 12 January 2022
Thank you so much, Annie. I am pleased with the character and owe much to Tempesta3D for that. I fiddled with this an indecent amount of time to get the lighting to what I wanted for the "God Rays". Such a lovely comment makes me feel the time was well spent. <3

Hello Molly, here you succeeded a masterpiece. Especially I like the volumetric light through the columns, the water reflections and the face light. The experiment of the time traveller has need of improvement and therefore he landed in that mysterious temple what is a crossing between two different times. I hope he will take the right branch off. Regards Anne
MollyFootman 11:45AM | Wed, 12 January 2022
You understand the story completely, Anne! Thank you so much for your comment. The lighting was a challenge and the use of an area light on his face was a bit of a cheat but I'm so pleased you found the final result pleasing. I'm not entirely happy with the reflections on the water but I gave up fiddling with it as sometimes "perfect" is the enemy of "good enough". >.<

Outstanding fabulous awesome atmosphere, gorgeous composition, impressive God rays and lighting, brilliant render.
Magnificent Masterpiece of Finest Arts. I love it!
As the poet would say ".., the girls are just faster.." - unknown poet.
Otherwise, they are just OK.. 😊

Such a lovely and moody scene! Definitely fits with the story and the idea of a mysterious cross roads. Fantastic job on the lighting and atmosphere!
MollyFootman 9:03PM | Fri, 14 January 2022
Thank you, my dear. The picture succeeded beyond my initial thoughts, especially with the "God Rays" which I've always had to fake in the past.

Wow, the lighting is spectacular! Really fantastic work here! Well done! :)
MollyFootman 9:41AM | Sat, 15 January 2022
Thank you! I learned a lot and finally got the atmospheric density to where it's not a thick pea soup fog and still have "God Rays" rendering nicely. Thank you also, for a lot of fine content. I am a satisfied customer! =)

great job on the god rays, and an interesting composition with the dark and light which give it a nicely dark yet interestingly mysterious vibe, excellent render, Molly
MollyFootman 7:40PM | Sat, 15 January 2022
Thank you, Paul. I fiddled with it for quite awhile and it's so pleasing to have you comment positively! <3

Thank you! I want to do more with this character and I appreciate the comment about how the scene works!

Although not an ideal predicament at least he gets a lovely view. Love the lighting and compositon.
MollyFootman 9:38PM | Sat, 22 January 2022
Thank you, Majin! This one evolved and the final product is quite a bit different than what I started with. I was particularly pleased with the volumetrics and lighting.
