Stay Home - Spread Hope Render Challenge

My second entry, thanks for Molar Island!
This is probably one of my book characters, now Queen of Velantia and Balan... awaiting for her lover to return from the North.

The other bits include V4, Kelp Hair/Crown, Elven Princess outfit.
The background is one of your sky backgrounds, but I took it to Photoscape and added a reflection - then put a ripple on it in Gimp.
Again, about 25 pieces in the set (and a 3 hour render), but other than V4 and her associated pieces, everything else is from Hivewire 3D. Thank you!!!



This is the first time I've entered a picture into a contest here. A little scared to share. This image uses the hivewire horse with Whisper's golden coat, pansies, the pot from potted palm, and day lilies, and you can barely see one of the black eyed susans behind the unicorn...

Welcome to all the newbies and thanks for sharing these lovely images. Glad you overcame your fear, Phoenix, to share yours so we can all enjoy them :)


I am so behind on catching up with the entries for this contest -- old computer failing led to computer-less me for a while, but I now have a newer one and it took a little while to transfer old content over and figure out why things that used to work no longer work etc etc etc. I'm excited I can finally used dForce clothing.

But I have two renders using the freebies (though I'd already bought several of them) and have a few more to create to make use of everything I downloaded. :)

Social Distance Dating


Used the Vintage Bicycle, HW House Cat, Tulips, and the Leash & Harness for the HW Big Dog.

Dawn Portrait


Used Minako for Sora (converted to iray and added fiber mesh eyebrows), Asiatic Lily, and a pose from Mixed Poses for Dawn.

Off to do more rendering, see what's up with Dawn 2.0, and go back and read through this topic to see all what I've missed -- looks like a lot!


The Door in the Wall. Out riding the woman finds a snow storm closing in. Seeking sanctuary from the cold she sees a door in the wall. What lays beyond? Was there safety from the storm? This time it was the door to summer. Vue environment for the snow forest and the garden scene put together in photoshop. Gazebo, Lisa's Botanical's lilies, Black eyed susans, day lilies and the flower fountain.


You don't always have to leave the render the way the program made it.

I like trying different styles in the final image. Thought this one looked nice.
