Another bit of messing around with Poser, APO, and Photoshop....
I was experimenting with doing some color grading, and while stepping through all the layer blend modes, I came up with this. It reminded me of those wonderful, colorful Peter Max posters back in the 60s and 70s.. Seems I'm channeling him, even though as far as I know, he's still with us.
This is Ameriga, the newest free babe from Syltermermaid. The hair is Hayden Hair - not sure where it came from. Not in Rendo's MP, so maybe DAZ.
Speaking of DAZ, my hiatus didn't last very long... LOL I'm not really one to give up that easy. I have another render running; directly to disk as Mike and a couple others suggested. This time, it's 1920 X 1080, so we'll see what happens. I'll post it if all goes to plan.
Thanks for all the comments and suggestions, and all your awesome support! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Should be seen full size. You've really succeeded at a Peter Max look...you've created that 'silkscreen' look, with color separation...you've flattened the hues in many places, giving that poster look he was so great at, you've used some high contrast, and those rich vivid colors that Max adored...you've given her a record-cover pose like a model from the times, your shadows are etched like designs---you got it down pat, Rod, terrific job, I love this. And I assume that's either apophysis or amberlight in the background? (Something like that? Harry would know the latter!) I love the variations you're getting in these pinups, and I wish you endless inspiration with it. First rate, love the image.
(And btw, Max is still with us---he's in his early 80s. If you know this, ignore; if not, he was whisked out of Germany in WWII ((his family was Jewish---Peter Max Finkelstein)), he lived in China, then Israel, then Paris...he'd seen a lot before he came to the US. I don't remember if he was influenced by Warhol, or they influenced each other, but he used many similar techniques, only he was more upbeat. I consider him a terrific artist, not just a 'poster' artist. I studied him years back, and gained great respect for his great imagination, sense of color, design, etc. Great to see you dialogue with him!)
Max? MAX? How come I don't remember him or his art? I've looked him up on the Internet - my mind draws a complete blank! All I can say is my hat's off to you and the fantastic image.
As for Hayden Hair, check out
It's at DAZ, alright! :-)
Very colorful render Rod and that is one sexy outfit :). I have not touched Poser in more than a decade. Even Daz is just a means for me to get the posing done though I must say I love the new dForce tool they added. Octane is where I like to tinker and tweak.
