Daz....something. Iray, Dreamscope. Gigapixel.
This is an oldie from the 2017 archives, it's an Iray render I ran through Dreamscope. Unfortunately I don't have the original anymore. I ran this through a program from Topaz Labs called Gigapixel It works wonders for embiggening images.
Here's some Saturday story nonsense. OK, here's a lot of story nonsense.
Space Marshal Sarah Morgan Visherly-Va Ortaugh.
Sarah was born on a Saturday, at 7:02 am on April 14th 6564 C.E. The first Halon war was in full swing, and Sarah's mother, very pregnant was manning a surface Anti AeroSpace Craft defense gun on top of a defense tower. Sarah's biological father had died a year before, and his contribution to Sarah's existence came from the gene banks. An hour after she gave birth she went back to her post. Sarah, being less than a minute old at that point had no post to man, so was wrapped in a shrapnel blanket and placed in an AASC shell crate. Medic Morgan Stanwicki (of the Coalition Aid Society) became her principal caregiver for over a month. Sarah developed an unusual love of pickles and horse radish from licking pickle juice and horse radish from his fingers. Morgan remained Sarah's principal father figure for the rest of his life.
Sarah's mother was a loyal Regimist. Being a good citizen she volunteered herself and her to-be conceived child for the Programmé ya Devlopman Espèsé (Species Development Program). Sarah was created as a new breed, the Type IX Pantera Anthropo-Amoritus. The new type 9's were created to be highly charismatic, intelligent, and inspirational. The plan for the new breed was to have a breed of inspirational figures for the Parti Nasyonal Santral (National Central Party)propaganda program. Sarah however did not become the good little regimist she was intended to be.

6649 - 6652 Sarah M. Visherly sells her stocks and assets. She buys an interstellar freighter tug and crew and claims the CSS Endurance as salvage. She announces plans to refurbish it. In 6651, she approaches Kharsha Va-Ortaugh as a representative of the wealthy and honorable Va-Ortaugh family to join her as partners in a Coalition based interstellar shipping firm. V&V Interstellar Enterprises is formed. Sarah and Kharsha's brother Varahl Mikuel Va-Ortaugh fall in love. The Three Worlds Pact becomes the Five Stars Alliance with the inclusion of the Thordalokki Expanse under the guidance of The Omicron Triumvirate. The Va-Ortaugh family care for Morgan at the Va-Ortaugh manner.
6652 - 6662. Sarah and Kharsha are given priority protocol orders to take over the Cs McDonald and proceed to the dead colony of Werther's World To retrieve an object known as 'The G'Dastsk Cylinder' The Cylinder is handed over to Cardinal Olké VaByorgen. Kharsha encounters what she believes is a Celestial. The Coalition President and Defense minister cut the fleet budget and operations by 24%, citing that "We will not endanger our fragile relations with the GU by acts of outright illegal aggression. Protests by the Five Stars Alliance Security council are ignored. Some suspect many in government are paid off by the GU Banking Commission. Illyrica does not respond to calls to abandon it's presence at the Shipyards of Wonderland. Citing treaty, the Illyrican fleets return from the revolution at nearly full strength. VickyAI on the CS Endurance breaks her governor and rescues a crew member ejected into space. The Merchant Militia Command and Space Commission permit VickyAI to continue her existence but she is placed under a stronger governor module and denied all access to defensive systems. Sarah launches a lawsuit and becomes a very public and vocal supporter of full AI rights and status as living beings. She secretly teaches VickyAI to break the new governor. During this time the endurance 'acquires' three Type III AI Aero-Space Assault Drones that have also broken their governors and limiters and escaped. Sarah gives them their own names; Naill, Cynthia, and Thomas. Naill, Cynthia, and Thomas are equipped with governor breaking instructions and limiter killing software and powerful deep space transmitters, "just in case". Sarah translates the machine code terms they call VickyAi as (something like) VickyMommy. They Call Sarah the OverMommy. The crew learn of this and the term sticks.
6657-59. en route to HD 6604c they are called for an emergency delivery to K-186f At K-186 f 5 Endurance crew are kidnapped. Sarah is shot during a rescue attempt, and Kharsha is arrested. The Crew and Sarah are rescued and M'hali, Felicity, Hamal and Rhaelle gather a team supported by Naill, Cynthia and Thomas to break Kharsha out of the maximum security penitentiary she is being held in. Kharsha brings along 7 members of the Southern Cross fleet being held there illegally. An attempt to confiscate the Endurance fails with the return of the crew and they escape under fire. Two GU destroyers in orbit there illegally give chase 'on behalf of the K -186 governnment' and are vaporised by the Endurance's 10 Tw xray lasers.
6660 December. The Endurance finds evidence that part of the GU 7th fleet has attacked a Coalition experimental gas mining station and killed all 150 crew. They were expecting the Endurance to come on an annual fuel run, and sent them a final transmission identifying the GU 7th fleet task force as TF 3. In a rage, Sarah engages Task Force 3 with the Endurance over a neighboring systems gas giant and with VickyAI unlocked, annihilates it. She orders the Endurance to return to Memphis to report. Sarah suspects she will be hung for piracy and that a war has already started; key government officials may have deliberately crippled Memphis ability to respond. The attempt to seize the Endurance and it's crew may have been an attempt to prevent them from coming back with a warning.
6661. Grey's Scouts are ordered out of the Memphis system, and a further 3 ships from the Coalition Southern Cross Fleet are ordered out of service. A secret emergency meeting of the Five Stars Alliance Security council concludes a treason investigation is necessary. The investigation begins in secret. The Endurance is on the journey home at 200x the speed of light.
6662 April 4th. The Galactic Union Bombs the Coalition capital world of Memphis, killing 64 million in an attempt to force a surrender. The damaged Endurance returns during The Battle of Memphis while it's cities burn and plows through the GU 7th fleet. They are joined by assembling Spacers, and many ships engaged in the fight. Illyrican Fleet Captain Haily Kantengo calls all ships to 'support Admiral Sarah' and rally to attack. She is joined by ships from the southern Cross, Bootes, and The aliens of the Thordalokki Expanse. Naill, Cynthia and Thomas launch and broadcast the de-limiter instructions. Many GU assault drones instantly turn on their creators. The entire GU 7th fleet is destroyed. The Endurance, heavily damaged begins it's breaking maneuver about the sun. They return to a mixed response. the president and most of the cabinet blame the Endurance for starting the war and demand the immediate execution of Sarah Morgan Visherly. This does not garner any public support, and the Five Stars Alliance Security council dissolves the government and arrests the president and cabinet under treason charges. Sarah and the crew of the endurance are hailed publicly as hero's to avert riots in the aftermath of the global bombing.
The Galactic Civil War officially begins with the formal declaration of war by the Five Stars Alliance. Captain Visherly is asked to help lead the fleet. She accepts the position of Space Marshal. She is given jurisdiction over the Rimward sectors and fleets of The FSA under the banner of Five Stars Alliance Forces Rimward Command (FSAFRC). the Endurance is repaired and refit under it's old assignment as a Command Dreadnought, and becomes Sm Visherly's flagship. Kharsha, is her personal voice and Aide De Campe In Chief. Varahl is named as Fleet Admiral of the 42 Fleet, Sarahs' personal Fleet in FSAFRC. M'Hali, Rhaelle, Felicity and Hamal are personal Aides to Kharsha.
6662 - 66?? The rest of the matter, and all that follows. Sarah and Varahl finally get married. Their first child Maria (Kharsha's middle name) will grow to be 8'2, and become a gifted statesperson.

Now you need to archive this locally so you don't lose it! So much detailed bio work! (love the detail of the pickle relish).

This a a totally lovely and unique render. Really a fine piece. I am so glad you could recover it. And yes back ups and imaged disk will save many tears and self kicking of the arse. I have pulled the whole story to read to me as my bedtime story and have fav'ed it too. Well done in all ways.

Excellent image, has the classic stained glass angel like feel, just a kitty one is all...

a fast paced tale of people failing to learn from history by the sounds of it; what is it in early childhood and child rearing that inculcates destructive patterns of behaviour rather than creative ones? Time Bandits got it right, day one lasers and an iPad with creative tools for every child... excellent kaleidoscope of colours with the Dreamscope effect, make for a nice challenging jigsaw puzzle

In Sarah's case, she was raised to be a good little militaristic regimist. All she really wanted (secretly) was the stars. A lifetime of war can leave one a little cynical though, and Sarah may think she may have force a change before Interstellar war after war destroys everything.

I really like the way you did the Character, and that's a heck of a character bio. I usually have two or three sentences, then roll with it.

Hmm, this looks like the view through the eyes of somebody who is stoned out of their box. Certainly different, anyway!

A most amazing and wonderful portrait of this character! Her profile is a most excellent read! Many fine kudos all around!

Very well thought out bio, Shawn. And the pic looks like it should be in a church. (Maybe she was made a saint at the end?). Great work!
RodS () 9:33PM | Sun, 05 July 2020
Quite the history you regal lady has it seems. I shall have to come back and read it through again when I can actually concentrate the full power of my 6 remaining brain cells.
Seems the A-hole 2 houses down didn't get enough fireworks last night (and the preceding 3 weeks), and is raising 17 kinds of hell again tonight. I hope he burns his f###ing house down.
Anyway..... She does look very regal here in her beautiful robes and surroundings - a most excellent artwork!
