Today it happened again and Deane posted an image that had the same theme and basic idea as mine...
Kinda scary, isn't it?!
This is a new character for Miki I'm still working on, here with her first MakeUp, done with a close look on the traditional Maiko MakeUps. I never liked what we call "what little Fritz believes a geisha/native american/african warrior/continue..." looks like, so I thought I go into deep by research and watching some movies like "Memoires of a Geisha". This is what I ended up with.
Because the original texture of this beautiful dynamic Kimono was so Lo-Res I had to make a compromise and textured it with tabala's fabulous shaders (thank you again, Kristina, I llllove them!), so it looks pretty stylized. My hubby will see what he can do for me, so maybe there will be some other Maiko with an enhanced Kimono.
Technical and cedits: Miki-texture and lighting by me, Kimono-materials by tabala, hair by RDNA, free "Furisode"-Kimono for Miki by Image Lab, available at Poserclub.jp (go and get it, it's great!).

The make-up, hair amd pose are excellent and your lighting contributes so much elegance to the render. It is beautiful, Meike!

The shaders look great- the details You just got ;) But especially I love that secret smile You express here. I am wondering what she is thinking about ^^

Hey what were you doing inside my head... LOL... this is happening far to often, I post a render with a theme, and then you 1/2 way around the world post an image with exactly the same theme. This is scarey Meike, there are other forces in control here that I don't undertstand...LOL. This is bloody good though, love those clothes, and the shadow around her is just brilliant, gives the effect of standing next to a white wall. Superb iumage!!!! (V)

Wow, I just had to check that image out. I love the outfit, so glad they made a kimono (and not just for v3, lol). The materials make it so sultry and seductive. Your lighting sets the mood, as with all your images and the character is a beautiful sight to behold. Thanks for sharing this image... Cheers, JB
