Robert952 Returns V1 by robert952 Robert952 Returns V1 by robert952
Considering how rusty my skills have gotten, not a bad re-entry into the art world.  DAZ 4.7 Pro and 3Delight render.  I used only what comes with the 'Essentials' supplied with Studio. pretty standard 3-light setup (Maybe a bit strong and too much from behind camera on the Main.)  Even the 'rock' is the 'pedestal' in there.  

Special credit to Mercurycode (  BG texture from a section of 05 Negatives Vol 4.  Obviously, heavily blurred for effect, but giving credit where it's due.  I think the colors and effect worked well.

It looks like this character has a story!  And in my book, that is a good sign of the character's liveliness.  Nice one!

Thanks.  I think having some idea about who the character is helps bring life to the image even if to freeze a moment.  So, I try to have a bit of a back story or purpose to the character at that moment in time. 

But more than anything else, I think work on facial expressions adds a lot to the character.  And I work on that aspect, I have found that a lot of people miss the nuances of expressions.  They dial in the 'Smile' parameter which is for the mouth, but they forget to add the effect on the eyes a smile has.  I get a kick watching anime where they tend to overdo the expressions.  But in just a few drawn lines on a character's face, they get the message across.  Generally, they also help define some aspect of the characters.

That's true.  When somebody is just posing a body without thinking about who that character is, of course they won't be able to give it life.

And I absolutely agree that when I look at many other examples of 3D character art, people phone it in and just put default-looking expressions on faces.
Sometimes they have less detail than my stick figures! :D
