[SFM] Afternoon Gaze - Sniper Edition by KvornanTheLafesta
[SFM] Afternoon Gaze - Sniper Edition
Sniper version of: kvornanthelafesta.deviantart.c…

I didn't learn as much when I made this piece. I did try to add a little blue to the fill light to counter the sunlight & manipulating the grass using 2 extra pivot points.

[SFM] Afternoon Gaze
What started out as a quickie SFM poster. Turned into a marathon of course-corrections, obsessing over details, getting distracted by more tutorials,etc...

Originally, I intended to make a simple romantic poster of Scout & Femscout laying down on the grass in ctf_sawmill, gazing at each other. But no matter how I setup the light, the rainy environment just didn't cut it. So I switched to another map with grass & sunlight. Result? It looked weird! They were laying down on "flat" pixel-grass. But then I found "Poseable Grass" made by Lugia and the result made a real difference to the scene. But it was tedious work getting the grass to "wrap" around Scout, Femscout, and their "accessories".

Anyways, it was proof that persistence pays off....

It was based off a photograph I took in photography class back when I was a freshman in college.

I'm fully open for critique...

Personal Quote: I believe that nature intent us to be curious beings, always evolving & improving; else we would have fangs, wings or sharp claws like other animals. Those are the weapons animals use to survive, humans don't: humans have strong brains instead.
In my last journal entry, I jotted down my intent to sell wallpapers online-- only to NOT do anything about it, until now.

Making a commitment to anything requires good planning & will power. I may have planned, but I had no will power, as I was unsure how I was going to sell it through my Weebly-based website. Weebly may have had 'product blocks' to sell stuff, but they were probably meant for 'tangible' products, not digital downloads. Because of that, I opted to do some research, finding websites that host digital downloads. Some charged a lot whilst others kept it cheap, or free.  For now,  I'm settling with because they give you 10 product slots for free as well as a HTML widget to put on your website. IF... I find a better product hosting website (or service) though, I will change. But for now, I'm going to take advantage of those precious free slots.

Though I intend to use Digital 3D nature scenes as my primary wallpaper medium, I'll also use my photographs- I rummaged through gazillions of folders in my computer and to my surprise, found some great photographs that would make great desktop wallpaper!

I'm still only halfway before can I get my so-called 'business' set up and running. But even then, I am feeling like I'm taking a leap of faith. Many people dream of owning a business, but they never get to do it due to fear, embarrassment when oopsies happen, or just peer pressure from friends & society. I don't even know how things will turn out for this wallpaper business of mine. Nevertheless, I just want to focus on the NOW.

If you are reading this, I hope you become inspired to create an income source of your own and be able to work for yourself...
