This is a redo of a render I did in March of 2019. One of my first renders, and there wasn't much I knew about Daz at the time. I didn't change too much. Puffed up her lips, created a second layer of curtains to get away from needing an HDRI outside them. Adjusted the light. I had the Godray prop set up all sorts of wrong. I adjust color temp. I was tempted to get rid of the mesh light I had in the seen, but ended up just adjusting it a little so the scene was still really well lit.
I adore the expression she has, and still think the random turtle just sells the scene. He looks like an orc with a lot on his mind.
I considered giving her the same treatment as I did in "Show Some Love," But opted to leave her alone, other than applying iray settings to everything. (It's actually the same Vicky 4 model - Helena)
It's one of those things that just works. Makes me think of a Frazetta, but I'm sure there will be some differing opinions. (I'd never even dream of being compared with him, it's just the style that makes me think Frazetta.)

Cool character, and I agree that the tortoise helps make this work.

I love this. Was looking at the characters and then my mind just sort of went, "Wait, there's a turtle!" Love it!

Sometimes it's fun going back to earlier work, knowing what you know now. Well done!

Looking great here, good sir! I do love the addition of the turtle... Great job on the lighting as well.

Subject matter is certainly Frazetta, although not quite as dark and gritty.

This is so nicely done. Isn't it fun to go back and play with older renders and redo them with newer assets and technique? To me it is a lot of fun and, while I will flag it as a redo, it is doubtful to many folks will say "Hey i remember when you did almost the exact thing back in 1864.
