This is the final render in a short series of old renders that I never had the time to finish..until now. I was so busy with other projects over the past few months that I got in the nasty habit of starting a new render without finishing the last. An idea would pop in my head and I’d start something new without finishing the old one. Sort of like a pile of rough sketches.
I loved the way Walking the Garden
came out. If you look at the top left, there’s a whole flower garden back there. It came out really nice. I put a lot of details into my scenes. Some of the time, it’s things you’ll never even see.
I wanted to recycle the scene and make use of the garden in the background. I placed a nude Victoria 6 in the center of the flower garden and adjusted the depth of field.
“Nude in the garden with sun rays”. Sounds like a Tomita composition.
Not bad, but I wanted more garden and more sun. I changed the aspect ratio from 8 x10 to 16:9.
Much better. I changed her skin texture and hair…
…and played with the lighting some more until I had the desired effect.
I then went nuts with the bokeh and lens flare.
I don’t know why this took me so long to complete, it was actually a pretty simple scene.
