On the margin, replacing that part of the skin shader with principled bsdf can make glossy surfaces which have close to a 90 degree angle between the normal and the view vector look better.

I still don't know much about the technical part, but thanks for the tip, I'll try that!

Especially love the expression, pose, composition and light in "Golden". The other images is also great and I can't wait til next piece of art.
You inspired me to dig through my older, never finished, projects and recover one of my first Blender (learning) scenes and finalize it.

All of the above and more, space has no boundaries :D

And you should, I agree with wolgade that's a very cute robot, handing over a towel 8-)

This is one of the reason I share my work, to help people get started using MakeHuman and 3D software to create art, without usage restrictions. It's frustrating wanting to make a scene and realize you have to learn more and more before even get started. Thank's to the MakeHuman team and user contributions it's possible to focus more on the artistic parts.

It's more practical to go bald in space, less debri flying around. In a close battle no hair for the enemy to grab.

It should be a warning on all clothes just to be certain some people understand the risks "If removed prepare for a lifetime trauma" :mrgreen:

I'm particularly struck by the quality of your posing, they're good poses done well, which is no easy feat!

Hi everybody!
First of all, thanks Mindfront and blindsaypatten for your words. I'm especially demanding about my poses and expressions, that's an inheritance from my time as a photographer. I'm still struggling with more "action" poses, though, but in time I hope to fix that.
And here you have three more scenes. None of them are really new, but there are some updates.
This one below was my first scene with this kind of a cavegirl from another planet. From the original render, I changed the position of the moon, the textures of the rock and the "outfit" (now procedural) and added hair to the model. I'm beginning to like making hair and combing it. :D

Below is a sequel to the cavegirl. In the original render she didn't have any hair and wasn't holding that spear, and there were no pyramids. The textures are all procedural. The sun is a mix of a sun lamp with a UV sphere set to emission. And the sky is a transparent plane with a noise texture and a color ramp to make that "whirlwind" effect.

This one has nothing to do with the cavegirl, it ended up being more like a "Golden" sequel (but it was made previously to that one). I updated the body of the model, with a lot of new targets, but kept the ponytail hair because I thought it looked good in the scene. Still not using the principled bsdf, which I started doing from this one on. The textures of the "idol" and the "floor" are generated with Genetica Viewer (Spiral Graphics). The inscription in the base of the idol reads "Yrmus", which is a name taken from the site Fantasy Name Generator, and is from a god of Fortune.

Well, that's it.
For my next post (maybe this weekend) I'll bring back my Space Girl (and the robot!), in some very unusual environments and with much more elaborated scenarios (lots of assets).

Well, as promised, here's what my Space Girl (and her friend the robot) were up to in the last few days.
The first one is called Space Girl Goes West and for this scene I used a lot of downloaded goodies: a gun from 3Delicious, a cowboy hat by nevada48 (BlendSwap), cowboy boots (the guy lying on the ground) by robertj114 (CGTrader), saloon by ultraplex (TurboSquid), western house by petethepauper (TurboSquid) and finally the folded paper used in the "Wanted" poster made by SPikEtheSWeDe (from DeviantArt). The barrel is mine (at least this I can model) and the textures are generated with Wood Workshop (from Spiral Graphics).
The second one is called Space Girl Goes to the Movies and the credits go to 3Delicious (sofas and flowers), CadNav (ad displays/billboards), Yughues from DeviantArt (textures of the floor and wall), and Wrong Side of the Art (movie posters). The robot, of course, is mine.

Still have to improve my "clothes", especially the boots. And while I'm struggling to learn some modelling, I search the web for freebies... but I found out I like using them, because it saves a lot of time. I love making very detailed scenes and if I had to model everything myself it'll take forever to make every single picture.

I made both scenes as tributes to two of my favorite genres: scifi and western. I think I already said that I love old movies, but I also love old movie posters... I have a huge collection of those, so I had to find a way of using them in one of my scenes, and here they are. I hope you guys like them.

Now Space Girl and her sidekick can get into their Delorean and go back to the future.

NOTE: I just realize I forgot to mention Space Girl's hair... (I'm always forgetting something, i know!).
Well, I agree with Mindfront about going bald in space, but since she was traveling through time to the old west, I thought it would be good to see how she looked with her scalp intact. I don't know about future scenes, but for these two I liked her to have some hair.

"Wanted for indecent exposure" :lol:

Exactly my sense of humour. BTW great images. The skin might be a bit too glossy, but most probably she's simply oiled up. :D
