Princess Madelyn, protector of the forest, focuses on her possible target as she determines if it is friend or foe.
This was a fun image to create. It was an idea I had for a while, I just needed the right inspiration to create it. Madelyn of G3F was the inspiration. I modified shader settings and her face/shape quite a bit, but you can still see some of the original character. Her outfit is actually bits and pieces of 5 different outfits. I also had to modify the hair shader setting quite a bit to reduce the "helmet hair" effect, not as good as I wanted, but usable now (usually using UTH shaders works perfectly, but for some reason not with this hair).
The scene is Willow Creek from Stone Mason. I used 2 Iray sectional planes to let light into the scene from the default HDRI. This made the forest behind Madelyn too light/bright. The obvious answer would have been to just light the scene with a couple of mesh light and 2 or 3 spot lights. Why do easy when you can get creative? I used a fog dome, and made the fog a dark blue/purple color to give the appropriate darkness to the forest in the background. The only post work done was to adjust levels, add a touch of unsharp mask, and add the signature.
Scene set up and rendered in DAZ Studio 4.12.x Beta using Iray

This beauty definitely looks like she means business - and I think it not likely that she misses her mark often.
You have a most impressive gallery, good sir!
