Ampelios Market by Bad-Dragon Ampelios Market by Bad-Dragon
Rendered in Daz Studio 4 pro.
Postwork in Photoshop.

This scene was done for panel 1 of page 11 of The Androssian Prophecy, which will be cropped from this image. It is, so far, the most models I have put into a single scene. There are 50 people, 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. It took about 50 hours of actual work to complete it, not including render times for 9 renders.

Waow! I surrender to you. The max people I put in an image is much less, and it took me muck more time. For not such a result. Great job.

Thank you! I've done much bigger scenes since this one. There are images from androssianprophecy.com/ that have literally hundreds of figures in them. :)

One more thing I didn't mention is that I built my computer for the specific purpose of rendering images as fast as possible to speed up production on the Prophecy comic.

 

I am running an 8-core FX processor over-clocked to 4.3 ghz, an ASUS sabertooth motherboard with the 990FX chipset, and 32g of corsair vengeance ddr3 ram, with Windows 7 professional.

 

The 8-core processor makes my render times extremely fast, but the ram determines how much geometry I can have in a scene. Once I get above 7 or so non-instanced figures, I start using more than 16g of ram.

 

So more ram = more figures in a render.

Thank you! Since I did this scene, I have upgraded to DAZ Studio 4.6 pro. Version 4.6 has a feature that lets you create "instances", which are duplicates of models in the scene that use far less memory. It's an awesome feature that I have used to build scenes with more than 60 figures, and render it all in one render. It is a huge time-saver, that would have saved me weeks of work on this image, lol. I'm not sure if Poser has a similar feature or not, since I have never used Poser and know nothing about it, but I would think that it should.

Wow! That is a great scene! I love the attention to detail, each character (and animal!)is believably posed, going about their business and interacting with their enviroment. Just incredible! Amazingly well done!

This is a remarkable render! So much content in one scene. I think the most models I've had in a single scene is 14. Excellent work, and patience? :-)

This is an incredible scene & you have patience to match!
50 hours & 9 renders is mind boggling! I feel that the gulls particularly add a dynamic animation to this scene. Top marks.

Thank you! The gulls came to mind when I was thinking that there was something missing, and started looking at old photos of mine from Palm Beach, and noticed that there were gulls in every picture, lol.
