Date Finalized: July 27, 2012
I created this artwork for the Renderosity Swimsuit Contest happening right now. This is actually my second entry to the contest as we are allowed three. I had hoped to create three but I ran out time. Seriously, I really got down to the wire with submitting this second one right before the deadline! I had a general idea of what I wanted for this artwork but then it kind of evolved into what you see here, bit by bit. I think I have about eight or nine different scene files of this artwork each with various changes to the same artwork scene. I’m just happy I got it finished and submitted in the nick of time! I can’t publish this artwork here on my gallery until after the contest so… you’ll see be seeing it then; or should I say now? Okay, I weirded myself out again.
The bikini is part of a new texture set I’m working on for Afrodite-Ohki’s Wrapkini and I hope to have it finished and released soon. I created my own Superfly materials for everything in the scene including the pool water which I’ve managed to improve significantly since my previous “Lounging By the Pool” artwork. Figuring out the materials for the innertube was probably the most difficult part because I couldn’t remember exactly what one looked and felt like but once I found some reference photos, I was able to finally figure it out.
EDIT: I didn’t place in the contest but at least I tried.
