    Hey Spirit Dreamer,

    I'd second talster on... 'Spirit Wolf Woman', very nice piece. I love moonlight/starlight settings (at least that's how it hits me). Sweet, seamless 2D/3D combo.

    Best Wishes,
    Darrel

    THANK YOU... Talster and GroBoto..
    Talster,..Here are the wips that you asked for..hope that they answer what you asked...Any other questions..feel free to ask anytime..I'll do my best to answer them.
    THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK GUYS...MUCH APPRECATED..and WELCOMED..
    Here are the wips to the piece...Started out as a Z Brush 3d sculpt...wolf was made using the standard great dane looking dog that came with Z Brush, and the woman was modified from another mesh that someone gave me to work with. I can't remember the original ower at the moment.
    I basically first just get the composition in place that I like with the 3d models. Then turn the composition into a document and export the document to the Painter #10 program..I use the colored spotlights in that program to light the scene with color...Those lights in the Painter #10 program work kind of like stage lights in a theater.Then I import it back into Z Brush to further refine things with the SMEAR BRUSH, BUMP BRUSH..ALPHAS, or whatever works in and for the particular piece i'm working on....I basically just keep going back and forth between the two programs,Z Brush and Painter #10 while trying to get the best from each and have it work in the piece that i'm working on...Lots of experimenting, exploring, and possabilities for discovering the new to myself things that i'm searching for..

    THANKS Bas... Yep,..painting from recolection with only memory as a refference is the best way to capture and express a personal inner feeling for the spirit and soul of the subject ...Turner was great at that, and that is what set him apart from all the others of his time.

    Z Brush sculpture...WIP.
