Are u using a fan on your hair or is some of the pic digitally done?
Better q? What is the process on something like this?

It's entirely digital. I start off in DAZ Studio, export to Octane to texture, light and render, then the piece goes into Photoshop for some painting. ^ ^

Stunning light work on this!
Armour is not an easy thing to get right, but the light, reflections and colour palette used in this is fantastic.
Faved :)

It sure seems it took it's time, but it is soo nice when it's finally done. I am personally the worst with patience but i think i've gotten direction for better when realizing that things take the time they need.
I think it would be really interesting to see how you work. :)
Happy and creative year 2018!

I'm loving the rainbow-chrome finish of this armor! That is seriously cool. I also really like the way her face comes into sharper focus than most of the picture. It adds a higher level of realism, I think.

Thank you! I love shiny things and reflections. Focus is something I've fairly recently started exploring, so it's good to know you feel this is effective!

Oh wow I dig the dynamic shot and especially those colors!
The hair strands make me think of the movement of light in still images.

That's a beautiful observation! Thank you so much. I'm really keen to put colour front and centre of my work going forward. The current four pieces are themed around oranges, and the next set will be blue.

Thank you! I definitely wanted to make more vibrant pieces. I feel like a lot of my older work was too dull and/or dark.

You're very welcome! Your new account is definitely off to a flying start, with such vibrant
and colourful pieces. I liked how your art looked before, but there's nothing wrong with
shaking things up and trying something different. :)

I do love me some shiny armour! It worked well here, given how pretty the light is, bouncing off it. I can only take some of the credit for that... Octane also played quite a big role.
