For the battle is the Lord’s…

Posted on

A challenge was issued by my wife – an accomplished artist – to produce some art using the computer that was not inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien. She suggested a Biblical theme. After 10 months of infrequent research, test renders and experiments, I finally came up with this picture depicting the battle between the shepherd-boy, David and the Philistine champion, Goliath. It was created using various figures and textures in Poser Pro 2012, with clothing created using Marvellous Designer 2 and Hexagon 2.5. Then imported – kicking and screaming – into Vue 9 Complete (actually a misnomer as it is not Complete, lacking some pretty essential functions.) and rendered over a 26 hour period! Photoshop CS6 then fixed all the glitches, created a better depth-of-field than Vue 9 could offer, and the level adjustment, and the titles added.
