What was that? Nothing? by hhemken What was that? Nothing? by hhemken
Our cautious hostess is a bit paranoid. An apparently ill tempered woman walks back to her lair.

Looks good! I especially like her expression, which neatly sums up the mood of the whole scene.

Another virtue is the use of depth of field, and the contrast of sinister blue light vs. the warm indoor light.

I do have mixed feelings about that blue light, though. It's not a lack of realism - even if it were a cheat, it's "realistic" if it enhances the impression of reality, whether or not it follows some set of rules. But it seems somehow unmotivated: what is it? We don't need to know, but we would like to have some basis for speculation. It also confuses things a little; is the woman merely suspicious, or is she seeing something with a blue glow and is actively scared?

One other small thing: I would suggest some postwork on her shoulder, to eliminate the bits of skin and the irregular hem. Texture mapping is hard! Her neckline is completely successful, IMO.

Overall, it's dramatic and highly effective. Good work!

If there's a blue glow, then it's probably a ghost

That may well be. It's up to the viewer to figure it out. Thanks for looking!

The blue light comes from that mysterious nether world: Off Camera.
Thanks!

That's an interesting point. Traditionally, in 3D digital art there are those who strive for realism and those who cheat and deceive at every opportunity, like the film industry. I used to be in the former, but it is a colossal battle against the tide in many respects. I went to the dark side, and now I don't expect my or anyone else's work to be photorealistic, faithful to the laws of physics, or rigorously rational. My work is like life itself: full of exceptions, surprises, and arbitrary endings.
