Hey everyone!

Over the last several years I've taught myself Photoshop and more recently discovered a love for 3D artwork. At present I don't get to spend as much time on projects as I'd like - maybe one day I'll even be able to turn a hobby into a career!

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my gallery - I love comments, so please feel free to leave some :) and thank you so much for all the watches and faves, it means a great deal to me!

This character is a variation of my Silas morph. For some time, I've been wanting to do a scene with the gorgeous Roman Bath environment at DAZ and finally got round to it.

I'd like to do a bigger scene with more guys at some point, like in traditional depictions. Some NIK filtering applied so the detail really pops and gives it a painterly feel.

V7 custom shader test by tigerste
V7 custom shader test
I've not been happy with V7's default Iray skin shader (too yellow) so decided to create my own.

Left: Pale version of my skin shader
Middle Default Vicky with Iray materials
Right: Slightly tanned version of my shader

As part of the shaders I enhanced the saturation of the veins in the SSS maps so that they would be more visible.

Lighting is from OOT's fantastic 'Dramatic Iray Lights' product and other than adding background (as per lighting), no postwork. Still a little grainy in places which is annoying given that I disabled the quality setting and maxed out the convergence ratio. Which version do you prefer? :)
