I am very pleased with the end results of this image. I have been struggling with it for a few days now. The main reason is because I am trying to move away from using Vue and Poser so much. A whole lot more of this image is by hand in Photoshop, it pushed my skills to the max, but its also taught me a heck of a lot.
So firstly, apologies if its not up to my usual style, but I'm really trying hard to make the most of my skills.
The whole of the sky, much of the horizon landscape and all the SFX etc are done in Photoshop.
The basic figure was Poser, but the hair and the colouring/shadows etc was done by hand (which is prolly why it look wierd LOL)
Bits and pieces were done in Terragen and the only bit I used Vue for was to doa reference for the Rock outcrop she is standing on.
I am trying for a very grand traditional/comic book style here, with lots of saturated, strong colours and a good range of tones. I wanted to more away from my other work with tends to be definable in terms of 'the red one' 'the blue one' 'the pink one'.
Hope u enjoy it as much as I do.
