RL threw a couple of big and unpleasant curves at me, and I really needed a break from reality (my mother was hospitalized and ultimately passed away), which has consumed almost all of my time the past month+. Creating images with 3D has really helped me over the past 15-20 years to escape some of the unpleasantness of reality. This image is the result of my most recent brief escape from RL.
The title say's it all. I hope the image conveys the felling of both internal and external strength. The character is Navilla (the same G8F character used in my last image, with a bit more obvious muscle definition). Her name comes from the base figure I started with (Naveah) and the texture set I used (Marilla). Thanks to everyone who commented on my last image, I decided I needed to use her at least one more time!! The lighting set up is super simple, the default Iray HDRI in DAZ Studio, and the Gods Rays prop. I actually did a bit more post processing on this image. I rendered an image with the full scene, and an image with just the figure and used gimp to create the composite image (with a few additional tweaks). That gave me the rim lighting on Navilla that I wanted, and the ability to control the brightness of the environment and the figure separately.
The image was set up in DAZ Studio Pro Beta 126.96.36.199 and rendered in Iray. All post processing was done in Gimp.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the image!!!

This is absolutely stunning! It does reflect the feeling of strength - something we all need a lot of these days. Your lighting is superb.
My deepest condolences for your loss, my friend. It's never easy, even when it's expected. Indeed, having this artform is definitely a vital break from all the unpleasantness RL seems to have an overabundance of lately. It's certainly helped me keep what little sanity I have left for the last 10 or so years...

An extremely emotive image. It shows a great deal of your feelings towards the sadness of the loss of your sweet Mother. I can relate partially to the way you must be feeling and your girl shows great strength for you to deal with the sadness of this dreadful loss. My thoughts go with you. I can only empathise because I too, lost my Mother in 2002. I am only now dealing with the aftermath. God go with you! Stay safe!
