Boy I wish I could sit at home and work on Kinara’s Children all day. I actually have to work for a living though, baby needs a new pair of shoes (and an 8″ Fire tablet). Fortunately, I still get to work and hone my 3D skills on the job while marketing and promoting our books. I call this image creation technique “virtual photography.” It seems an accurate description as I only model minimal portions of the image. For the most part, I gather pre-made virtual props, arrange them in space, light the scene, and choose the aperture, frame, and film stock before rendering (similar to developing film). This is similar to how a typical studio photographer might work.
