Here's something I'm a little bit proud of.
And a demonstration in what a huge difference specularity can make for a picture.
So far I haven't rendered much other than a few material tests but this picture is probably the look the finalized version would have.
I would really appreciate your opinions on this, am I going in the right direction. Because I know that improvements can always be made.
I really dig her, skin materials look great. She actually looks of african decent so that's a major bonus. Obviously the hair needs tweaking, but that's the easy part since you were able to already properly show a different ethnicity.
As for the android scene, i think it's coming along ok. But because the lighting is so flat, it's not producing enough shadows to make it convincing. Perfect example could be her left knee, she's kneeling down yet it looks like she's floating on top of the surface due to the very llight shadow underneath. Hope that helps
