DURR I forgot to tell you about the set.
It *is* a stonemason product (good eye) - it's Streets of the Mediterranean, I picked it up on his birthday sale.

I should do a scene from Romeo and Juliet ...

This is one of those pictures where I can't really imagine the game he's designed for, but he's OBVIOUSLY from an RPG. ;)
Kinda makes me think of the creepy characters from Peake's Boy in Darkness... there is a story I have not read in a while :/

I'm not a photographer, so I'm not 100% sure what you're dealing with here. I do most of my work with multiple light sources and I only cast shadows with the ones I want. I manually set luminosity for each one.

Well, if I do something NSFW, it's not like I'd post it here. And, unfortunatly, the one place I used to be able to post NSFW stuff is gone. So, they just live on my hard drive.

Ah, I don't have that one. But, Stonemason is easy to identify. If it looks like someone spent way too much time on it, it's a Stonemason product.

There's always DeviantArt, just remember to tag them so they aren't in general view.

DeviantArt wants money (the free membership doesn't seem to be terribly useful, but, I'll look later when I have more time). If I'm going to pay for something like that, I could just get my own webpage.

LUX lighting and rendering is interesting, it's very much like physical HDR photography. Like, even with ISO rating on your "film", exposure time, and f-Stop if you want to get into that. I've deliberately chosen to muck around with that because this way I get to nag my husband, the photographer. ;)

LUX renders always always have bounce lighting enabled, do bi-directional raytracing, and some other stuff which goes right over my head.

For this one, I'm playing with SunSky light, which includes the Sun light, and a full sky indirect diffuse light thingy. Your big tools in LUX are distant lights, the Sun/Sky/SunSky type lights, and area lights. You can do spots and points too, but the programmers are tetchy about them so they're not as well done (take longer to render).

There's always the Renderotica galleries, but I've not read their full TOS, I don't know if they have a commerical clause in there or not.

Heh, funny, looking good, though maybe the toes, lower horns and nose are a bit too shiny?

I don't know how I missed seeing that last month... Anyway, I've re-posted the link over on Robert M. Schroeck's forums. (Knowing Bob, he'll probably like it.)
