Red Gold, a new piece of digital equine art image finished.

Well I’ve finished up a new composite image, entitled Red Gold. It was rendered in Poser 6 with the scenery painted in Photoshop. I also painted the horses mane and tail in Photoshop and blended the horse with the background.

Red Gold by Angela D. Taylor 2010

I started off in Photoshop with some of my own brushes which I created by rendering clouds in Carrara against a solid black background and capturing the resulting renders into brushes in Photoshop. I then remembered Ron’s awesome water brushes that I saw on sale at Daz3d and dropped them in my shopping cart, and thought I’d snag his beautiful cloud brushes at the same time.

Bare untouched render

This image here to the right is the raw render, straight from Poser. It is the Millennium Horse from Daz3d with some of my custom morphs and one of my new realistic textures.

Whilst I usually love getting down to painting in Photoshop when I have the time this was and unusually frustrating experience as my trusty old graphics tablet (a cheap xp-pen) is playing up and Photoshop kept loosing the connection with it! Number one must have item now on my to buy list is a Wacom Intuos, after my wedding and new car that is!

Millennium Horse textures

This gallery contains 26 photos.

The following renders are samples of my texture work on the Daz 3d Millennium Horse a.k.a. the MilHorse.

I’ve made all of them from scratch using high resolution photographs including some from my own horses, combined with hand painting in Photoshop.


Distractions, distractions a new horse model and a new texture…..

lorez horse new texture 001 300x257 Distractions, distractions a new horse model and a new texture.....Well today whilst waiting for a render to finish, I checked out Daz3d‘s news letter and couldn’t resist when I saw that Predatron has a new LoRez Horse model out!

I bought it straight away and really like it, it doesn’t have many morphs (as of yet *wink*) but is ideal for the job for which it is designed, animation and for rendering scenes with multiple horses in which the Millennium Horse would grind most systems down to a halt!

A nice surprise is that most of my P4 horse, charger and Heavy Horse poses will work on this model, although the fetlocks need the rotations adjusting slightly, but a welcome addition to my render kit.lorez horse new texture 002 300x276 Distractions, distractions a new horse model and a new texture.....

I’m still working on finishing up my Millennium Horse texture packages but couldn’t resist seeing how this horse will look with one of my photorealistic textures….. One thing that I have found so far is that the UVs are very nicely done, well laid out and so far minimal texture warping, so a big thumbs up there too icon smile Distractions, distractions a new horse model and a new texture..... This render is how I’m getting along with it so far…

BTW i counted 23 coat textures that came with the LoRez horse package! They are hand painted, not photo based, but they are very detailed and very well done, hats off to Predatron!

Sooty Bay Millennium Horse Texture

sooty bay millennium horse texture 300x272 Sooty Bay Millennium Horse TextureI have almost finished a new sooty bay texture for the Daz3d Millennium Horse that will be part of my new package.

This is a very detailed glossy texture and is one of my favorites so far.

The horse texture package is taking longer than I expected as I keep finding new stuff that I want to add to it, so this is going to be a big texture package! It will be separate from my morph/character pack due to size but I will also offer a combined package at a discounted rate.

The top two horses (no post work bar compositing) were rendered in Daz|Studio and the bottom one in Poser 6 with different lighting.

My new paint texture for the Daz Millennium Horse model

I’ve been quite busy today making a new texture for the MiHorse model.

I’m calling it Scout (original huh!) and it is a coloured paint horse texture with beautiful dapples on the bay part of the texture.

It is still a work in progress but will eventually be part of a texture pack available in my store. The test renders shown here have no post work applied to the actual horses they were simply rendered and arranged on the background in photoshop.

The custom character?morph used in these renders will also be eventually available in one of my packs in  my store.
