Well, I guess you could say I'm back in action after a long hiatus. Overtime at work and a general sort of Artist Block kept me away for awhile.
The image itself is about two-thirds intention and one-third random experimentation.
A basic Poser figure started it off. She was
fixed up with some pretty oriental features, although it's impossible to tell that anymore.
She was imported into Bryce4, textured (twice) and rendered (twice once again).
The two resulting renders were imported into Photoshop5, combined creatively and then extensively airbrushed with my Intuos tablet.
The image has suffered just a bit of pixel damage between the watermarking and the jpeg compression but it's still pretty accurate to the original.
