I find it interesting how you use the 3D modelling with photoshop rendering. The Fawny neeper, as you call it, looks like a 2D painting to me, but elements of the background seem 3D generated. It's very pretty, don't get me wrong, I do like it, but for some reason your end results are never quite what I expect (when compared to WIP).
I don't mind if people don't prefer the aesthetic. That's fine. What I do mind is when people assume I'm cheating or using Poser or that the computer is doing all the work for me. THAT pisses me off. I work very hard to sculpt, rig, texture, light, and compose my 3D work with my 2D work. It is a relatively new workflow for me so I still have some kinks that need working out but for the most part, this is my favorite medium. It works well for me and I enjoy doing it.
Anyway, thanks again. I appreciate the compliment.
No matter how beautiful this looks, it equally makes me sad too. Your narrative is wonderful and captures the moment of possible freedom from captivity so perfectly. Yet enslavement has already happened and nature has been bound. Thank you
Thanks. ^__^ I wish I had saved the Blender render. You probably would laugh your ass off at it. XD But that's how I've been doing a lot of my paintings recently. I sculpt things up in Zbrush then render them in Cycles and paint in all the fine detail in Photoshop.
