You have some very nice work here Nightmar. My favorite is the girl walking on the small dirt path between the flowers. I am assuming you used Vue for that one, very nice work. Great job on the pose, you made her look natural and 'real' in her movement, and the lighting on the scene is well-done as well.
I like the elf on the bridge, but not as much because there is too much of a contrast between the realistic trees in the background and the 'plastic' look of the model's hair and ears. Also, the camera angel doesn't really help the picture too much. I feel that I am looking at too much background when the focus of the picture is really the elf and her fairy. A tighter, close-up shot might've been better, perhaps with a focal camera to blur the background a bit. That's just my unsolicited advice, still a very nice picture
The top 3 are very well done - no criticisms to be made, they are artistic and interesting.
Now, the one that I have a bit of a problem with is the very bottom picture with the troll. There are a few things about this picture that I feel don't jive together. The scene lighting seems off, and there is a lack of shadows, so the characters all look flat. Also, the fireballs being cast are not radiating any type of light (not sure if you put these in post-work or if you have fireball models), and they really should be casting light. A Simple linear-point light would work wonders. Further, the camera feels too 'static', it is facing straight on at a slightly elevated position, which is fine for scenery, but not really good for action scenes. You might want to think about rolling the camera a bit on the Z-axis to give it a skewed look, and action scenes are where camera focus/distortions come in very handy. You need to figure out what you want the focus of the picture to be: the troll? The people? The fireballs? Whatever it is, the camera should have its depth of field focused on that. I use that effect fairly often in my own action-shots. If you want to take a look at some of them, just go to my project topic for Aleph: Aleph Project Thread
. Near the bottom I have a section of conceptual art I did using Poser and DAZ.
Anyways, great work so far! I would be more than happy to give more feedback if you wish
