Or every veteran can have their rookie day.
I think is the first time I render something like this. While a huge fan of Boris Vallejo art and Fantasy illustration in general, I am more used to sci-fi, steampunk, pin-up, and fashion themes in my compositions. Anyway, technically is not Vick and neither is naked.
Seriously, this image born while I was looking a workaround to bring LAMH presets in IRay for a future project. The jaguar fur preset have a 1,500,000 strands value. Something like this exported as an obj would be unmanageable even on a power system. After some experimentation I exported the fur reducing the value to 250,000 and imported back to Studio parenting it to the jaguar figure. To get the fur a little bit denser I create 4 instances for the imported geometry and shift them just a little bit in the X and Z axis. Anyway, while setting up the scene I needed to hide the elements to get the viewport usable. I am glad with the result and think is a workable method to use while AlessandroAM is working on bring Iray support to LAMH.
By the way, while trying to remember the exact aka for "Naked Vicki in a Temple with a Sword” I searched Internet and found this old (2006), but still very funny, article about DAZ3D suing e-frontier in harassment case.
