SO... this was a pain. 25 hours of rendering. The third time. It hit 67%, and I had a ton of post-work to do that I think I did okay at. Hopefully.
I wanted to show off the Short Cropped Hair. As well as a couple texture sets for short cropped hair. And since it's for both male and female figures... load two people. This is the SECOND version, as I realized the first version would get kicked from the gallery. (She was wearing leather and had a cat-o-nine tails, he had a collar.)
Hopefully this doesn't get kicked.
One hair texture is from -wolfie- The other is from 3DPixi, but apparently that is no longer available in the store. Which is a shame. Both figures are using various configs of the Short Cropped Hair.
His g-string came from a slave outfit in the freestuff section. "Slave Cloth for G3F" by cabcab. I was using the collar, too, but.. well. Better not inspire wrath if I can help it. It came with a fun morph that really set the stage for the scene, and I went slightly afield of my purpose. Hopefully you forgive me the indulgence.
Lady model is Evlin for G8F, male is Kheiron for G3F, who came with a centaur half, too.
The BUGGER was the pirate cabin. Tons of mesh lights, and it was too dark. I tweaked them all, and added in a spotlight. I like how the lighting looks, but rendering it? A pain. It wasn't CPU rendering. In fact, it easily fit in the RAM of the video card. Just too many lights. Yet trying to light it with just a couple spots did not give nearly the same effect, so... (I really need a 30xx RTI... anybody?)
I will think twice before loading it again.
So, there is some graininess, but overall I think it looks pretty nice. I thought of applying a filter, but... to heck with it. I like it enough as-is.
On to the next one!

Gotta love them long renders...
I have an AMD card, so EVERYTHING takes a while.
Nice job though! Lighting does look good, so probably worth it, eh?
Definitely! I think so. If I load this ship again, I'm going to build it a new lighting rig because this was a pain. I did a render turning off the boat, and it took less than two minutes. (Turning off the cabin all disappeared all the lights.)
The other painful part was the mesh clipping issues I didn't notice until deep into the render time. I think I fixed it all pretty good, though.
Thanks for commenting!

An excellent scene and wow, what a lot of work. You are to be commended on your patience with nvidia. What card are you using. I wish there was a way for me to see what kind of render time my nvidia 2080 gpu would take. On some images, even it is not that fast to render. Well done.

Very well done! I hate to think what it would take on mine, I'm still running a GTX 960. I've been considering getting a newer card but I read somewhere Daz Studio doesn't play well with RTX. I would like to for sure though as I've been looking at 1660 Ti.

I'm glad you persisted. This came out looking fantastic.

Nicely done, there are no problems with the RTX cards and Daz the new cards are for the moment very 'elusive'.
