Sasha - Portrait of a Rebel 001
Here we see Saz being her usual saucy self in the studio. I'd like to produce more pieces with her, showing her rebellious side. She will also be getting progressively more inked as time goes by.

Katie - Promo
Introducing Katie, my latest character. She's all-natural, just like Annie. She's petite and dainty with an enormous amount of confidence. Expect more from her in future.

Annie - Portrait
This is an edit of an edit of an old render. I got bored. :)

Annie - Pink Chucks
While my PC is playing up and reaching 100% CPU and RAM while rendering, making Poser crash multiple times and taking literally WEEKS to render one 'normal' sized piece, I've been messing with more old renders in Photoshop. This is one such render. Annie wearing her pink, flowery Converse! :)

Annie - Purity II 012
'Purity II' is the sequel set to Annie's 'Purity' set, which can be found in my gallery here.

The point of 'Purity' was to show Annie in her purest, most natural state, with an empty scene and even lighting providing no distractions, leaving Annie as the sole focus of the images.

With 'Purity II', I took this into account and decided to add a few props, while keeping the scene bright and clean. I opted to include a striking dash of red to contrast with Annie's complexion, while keeping the daybed and cushion white and unobtrusive. In post, I added effects to create a dreamy atmosphere and soften the edges to make each image delicate and smooth.

I spent a lot of time working with Annie's hair, in order to make it fall correctly. I also worked hard to keep each image tasteful, while maintaining a cheeky 'teasing' vibe.

Since 'Purity' was published, Annie has undergone many changes, from the slightest tweak of the soles of her feet to the considerable addition of strand-based body hair, which envelops her from top to bottom, with each area using unique materials to create a natural variation. Annie's skin, eye and mouth materials have also been overhauled, now making good use of subsurface scattering, blinn shaders, fresnel effects, raytraced reflections, displacement maps and reworked specular effects.

And so, I present to you Annie's 'Purity II' - a twelve-image showing of Annie's natural, healthy beauty and playfulness.

I have been berated and belittled many times within the 3D artists' community, for my artistic style and my belief that anything is possible. Progress is being made, but the nay-sayers still seem to ram their shitty opinions down everyone's throats when they aren't welcomed to.

I remember, many years ago, being laughed at for wanting 'real' reflections in the eyes of my characters. I had comments such as "That's going to hog resources!" "You would have to build an entire scene BEHIND the camera, just to get a few pixels of reflection - waste of time!" "It'll be too much work and you'd only ever see it if you were right close up to the character's face, so there's no point!" etc. Yet here we are with almost every single serious character render featuring 'real' eye reflections!

I remember, a couple of years ago, trying desperately hard to make all-over body hair for Annie, with no luck. It was a horrifyingly stressful experience, trying to use Poser's hair room to create realistic body hair. I was told things like "Eiwww, gross! Women shouldn't have body hair!" "Why would anyone even want that?" "That's going to hog resources and would be too difficult to implement." "You wouldn't see most of it unless you were really up close to the character anyway, so it's pointless!". Are you seeing a pattern?

Now, here I am, asking for 'peach fuzz' on the ears, jawline and cheeks of V4. Guess what I'm getting?

I'm getting fucking hacked off with it all, that's what I'm getting! My apologies for being a fucking visionary genius artist and wanting my renders to make people ghasp in awe and question whether they are actual photographs or not, but I'm one of the progressors, while they are a bunch of tossers who will sit in a darkened room, pissing about with V3 and M3 in an early version of Poser, with only basic shaders applied and 'clay' hair, thinking that anything else will be 'too much work'.

Top tip to anyone on a forum: If someone asks a question about something and you have either no knowledge to answer the question, or no interest in the topic / product being discussed, FUCK OFF!!! Don't make fucking shitty nay-saying comments which serve only to dishearten and mock the OP, you serve only to accurately resemble a complete tosser!

I don't know why I bother; if it's not shitty comments on forums, it's shitty comments on my work, telling me women with body hair are gross or "You've obviously never seen a real pair of tits, because her tits DO NOT look real at all!". GO FUCK YOURSELF!!!

End of fucking rant! Bollocks! ¬_¬

I've always been a very artistic guy; I used to draw a lot when I was younger, but these talents somehow converted themselves into talents for creating music, 3D art work and photography. These days I don't draw at all; whenever I try, it all goes horribly wrong.
