Battle by Bad-Dragon Battle by Bad-Dragon
Ajkara Italana Faslurin (Tala) engages a Priest Arnak in battle at the siege of A-Tykaar.

Rendered in DAZ Studio 3 Advanced.
Postwork done in Photoshop CS3 with a Wacom Intuos 4.

I worked on this for a long time. This is the result of 34 renders with a total of 31 figures and a lot of postwork. I hope it turned out okay. Thanks for checking it out.

So nice to see that Rolemaster is popular still in some places. I playtested Rolemaster Companion VI back in the late 1980's. My character Kayla Sorrowkin showed up in a few rules examples, as I recall. I really must upload some pictures I've drawn of her. :)

I'm not sure how popular it is, lol. I only know a few people who have even heard of it.

Your renders are unbelievable. Are they one-offs, or compiled as part of a story?

Thanks! Most of them are part of a story by Glen Schroeder and myself called "The Androssian Prophecy".

Breathtaking... Having tried crowded scenes I can only imagine the amount of work behind it. So many details, the lightning, shadows, atmosphere, effects, poses, expressions, materials... Everything is perfect. Wow!!!

Thanks for the comment! I'm not sure exactly how long it took; I worked on it off and on for about 3 weeks. Tip: sketch it on paper first, so you have a working knowledge of what the composition will look like, and a good idea of how the shadows should interact.

thnkx for the reply....actually working with many figures and high textured props will take forever to render on my crappy pc...:s.....i think i might render individual figures thn work it out over photoshop...n beside the daz lightings r still a mystery to me (God knows when am i able to render a decent textured figure like the product renders)...!!!

Oh yeah, I can only render 2 or 3 figures at a time depending on how much detail there is. That's what I meant by sketching it on paper, so you know where all the figures should be and the shadows. I layer it in the direction of the shadows, so I'll do 3 figures and then remove the one closest to the light source and add one the other direction. That way, when I layer the images in photoshop, the shadows are correct. I layered 34 images total for this one. Hope that helps. :)

I usually play with the bump map settings to bring out the detail. Try cranking it up to around 125%, and set positive up to around .3 and negative to around -.3. Adjusting the positive and negative values makes the texture rougher. And for the armor, just turn reflection up. I use DAZ Studio Advanced though, not sure how it works in Poser.

I am speechless...er...wordless! All of the time you put into it really paid off, the scene is just so lush and real it's just simply amazing. I feel like I'm right there with them, and the inclusion of all of the different people in different motions of activity make the piece come alive. Excellent work!

Excellent, I love your scenes! This is a great action shot. The background action is really good and gives the scene good depth to draw you in. I can see all your hard work put into this one. BTW, her armor is awesome! I'd love to see more of her!

"I hope it turned out okay"...??? Thats awesome! 31 figures and 34 renders... OMG! I get crazy when i have to pose 3 or 4 characters for a scene and must do it in 2 or 3 renders. I guess, that's the reason why 3D-mass-scenes are so rare. I often need 3-4 days to pose one character until it turned out as i wanted it and so i would need about 100 days for such a work... not speaking about the other props, lights, morphs etc. that would cost me the rest of the year... and afterwards i would be ready for wearing the strait-jacket ;-)

Lol, thanks! I think I've developed a pretty good technique for group scenes, but it still takes forever to do one.
