Blue Surf by ElBorja Blue Surf by ElBorja
Yet another one in the series.
Went for a realistic feeling here. Hope I got it.

Surf and bikini are custom textures.
Used brushes from *PAULW

BG is stock picture from ~ashzstock

Enjoy!

BTW, Picture looks A LOT better at full size.

WoW, I got a DD! I can't even explain how happy this makes me.
But this also carries some unusual guests to my gallery, so for those that need some explanations, here they are:

- This is a 3D 'Manipulation', which means it is not me that modeled the girl. I just used pre-made textures, some custom ones and a pre-rigged figure. I then composed the scene, chose the pose, the lighting and rendered the image. The rest is postworked in a 2D image software.
- The tools I used were DAZ|Studio and Photoshop.
- I went for a realistic feeling to the picture, but not totally realistic. You only need to zoom into the girl eyes to notice they do not look real at all.
- The textures of the bikini and surf were made by me.
- I don't think everyone will like this work, but for those that fav it, thanks. :thanks:

wooow! it's amazing, she's delicious, I always want to do sexy drawings like this, but I haven't so much in my deviant.
Take a look ;)

A observation, put more iterations in your 3D, cause in the surfboard can saw the polygons. Im learning 3Dmax ;)

Kisses.

this is fascinating i love the tecture of the skin! she has freckle! not many 3D characters show much freckle or any real-skin texture. but u captured it and it looks really lifelike! :clap: :+fav:

Nice image. Slick texture work!
Though I think maybe you should turn on polygon smoothing. Aiko's shoulders tend to be a little chunky without it, as is the top of the surfboard.
Keep it up.

:iconelborja:
ElBorja Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks,
Well, I use DAZ Studio and did not think about the smoothing feature until too late. It only appeared in latest versions and I am not yet used to it.
Will think for next one.

Thanks for passing by.

Cool. Smoothing helps greatly when trying for naturalism.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

nice work!


my feedback:

- smooth the top of the board and the shoulders.
- the head looks too big.
- the hairtips looks too fake.

great work!

ElBorja Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Agree with the hair and the board tip :nod:
But I have to disagree for the head size. I like it like that and I do not think I would be willing to change it.
Thanks for the feedback anyways.

just a thought; maybe if the eyes were a little less reflective of light, it'd look a tad more realistic.
Reply
:iconelborja:
ElBorja Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm sure. The thing is I chose for them a non realistic texture. I might need to try rendering them more realistic, but I do not know if I would prefer it.
Thanks for the feedback.
