I decided to play with the Bloom settings that I finally found, lol. I wanted to use them for my lightsaber posts the other day. Maybe they need a revisit now... though before I do, i want to figure out ground fog to really sell the atmosphere. For The Floor, I removed a side to get the camera angle I wanted. Turned off the HDRI completely and placed two spotlights. I also added an emmisive to the hoses on the bike to add that touch of neo-punk to it.
Pose was 100% done by hand. I got lucky with the expression. She has a wide mouth, so a lot of presets don't look right on her. (Just like Rochelle with her big beautiful lips) I keep hoping I'll find some advanced mouth control/lip control one of these days to further customize expressions. On some characters I just have to go subtle as the face warps unattractively.
I haven't dug into learning how to create opacity maps yet. Got too caught up in other stuff, so I'll be on it double-time next week to update the comic. I planned one-two weeks of downtime, so it isn't a HUGE deal.
I'm also looking to take a crash course in Blender to rough out some special items for the comic. Nothing fancy, just has to hold up once I've applied the filters. I'll share a post in the next day or so as a teaser. I didn't make the gear in it, but it will tease WHY I need special gear... (It also proved to me that using the techniques I use to get a page ready, I really can include any generation of models in a scene.
Got my second Moderna shot yesterday. It hit me pretty hard today. Been rocking a 100 degree fever all day (with Tylenol on board) It's also not playing well with my fibromyalgia, so it's been a FUN day, lol. But, so long as it's cleared up by Sunday, I should be good to go. There is a little risk I fall into that category of people that will have a stronger reaction.
And now they're talking boosters, so... Honestly, I get sicker when i get flu/pneumonia vaccines, so I'm a little unsure of how I feel about yearly boosters for COVID. I guess time will tell.

Super work my friend! I like a bit of bloom now and then, especially when it fits the subject, just as it does here.

That eye is creepy.
Well done on this! The lighting is inspiring.
Thanks! I agree, it's just a bit of a Terminator vibe. I was worried it wouldn't show up at all, but once bloom was applied, well, you can see for yourself! Makes me think of the song "Electric Eye!"
And YAY! One of my favorite artists is following me! WOOOOO!

A cool effect. I once had it turned on by mistake. It took me forever to figure out what the render looked strange but very cool also. But for a Cowboy scene, it couldn't stay.
