Darkmere

One of my first attempts at using Vue. I made this four years ago using Vue 5 Infinite, having posed and clothed the human figures in Poser 5.

Looking back, I can see a few flaws in the image (try and work out the arrow's flight), and I remember a very confused and inefficient workflow.

Because three clothed Poser figures tied up an awful lot of resources on the laptop I was using then, I had to hint at wooded hills in the background by using the boulder effect on terrains and a lot of haze.

And I never could get the arrow to look like it was flaming.

But every time I think of updating it using the skills I have now, I shy off. Despite its flaws, I nailed the mood and atmosphere I wanted dead on. I'm still proud of this image, and it seems effective to judge by the reaction of other artists when I posted it to an online galery recently.

It was intended as a tribute to the British TV series Robin of Sherwood, which starred Michael Praed as Robin. This scene shows Marian, Much and Tuck mourning Robin.
