Vania in Red

Vania Kyrridwen of the Androssian Prophecy. I was testing some Iray shaders and a longer hair style for the upcoming Book 2.

The Scythian by Bad-Dragon
The Scythian

Post work in Photoshop

This is not meant to be a historically accurate Scythian, but rather my version of the Scythians of The Androssian Prophecy. This is, in fact, Darach several years before the beginning of the story. Darach was once a soldier in the Scythian army, until that land was conquered by Maelgryn. In case anyone was wondering, this is what Darach looked like before he was a refugee in Thalassia, before he met Gaspar and became First Mate of the Seraphim. There's an origin story in there somewhere...

If anyone is interested in the story, you can check it out at

Victoria 7 Wip 1
Rendered in Daz Studio 4.8 with Iray
No postwork

I finally broke down and purchased Victoria 7 from DAZ3D. Here's my first creation using the new base model. I do like the new model better than the Genesis 2 version, as there are some good improvements. The joints work better. Also, I never liked the way Victoria 6's legs looked. The legs were the main reason I never converted my characters from V4. I'm just picky like that.

Having said all that, I'm still irritated with DAZ3D for the way they market this product. The genitalia is a separate prop that is only included with the pro bundle package. Seriously? Yep. You have to buy the most expensive package to get the full model. Even though most of my images don't actually show the genitalia, it still annoys me that I don't have the complete model, because I'm not able to afford the pro bundle. It seems to me to be a blatant money marketing ploy, not to mention that it also seems a little bit weird. They're using Victoria's genitalia to sell the pro bundle, like she's a whore, and they're pimping her out. That's just my opinion, of course, and some may disagree. I think the "pro" bundle should include things that "pro's" actually use, like the morphing tools and expressions. What do you think?
Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes!
It was very much appreciated.
