Reality 4 Render of Aiko 6

I tried out the new Reality 4 renderer for DAZ Studio. The Reality renderer is primarily for photo-realistic renders. But it does a good job with non-photo-realistic renders too. The Aiko 6 model is intended for anime / manga style renders. I tried the Reality 4 renderer with Aiko 6, just to see how it would turn out. I haven’t read up on all of the advanced settings, so I only used basic settings for these renders. You don’t have to mess with lots of lights in DAZ Studio when you use Reality. You set up one or two Reality-specific lights, and let Reality do the work. The results of my experimentation are below. I’d love to hear what you think of them.

  1. I don’t know much about digital art, but I know an eye-catching image when I see one. The character is both attractive, yet gives you a look that’s not quite human. Very interesting.

Any thoughts?
