Poster artwork by Joe Pingleton

Mirrors and reflections provide a fascinating aspect of artwork, both in the use of character based scenes and landscapes. There are a number of shaders (some free) and props that work really well. In this community workshop let’s share your tips, recommended resources and your best artwork that uses reflections as a primary element.

This community session is for artists using any application (DAZ Studio, Poser, Terragen, VUE, World Creator, PD Howler) to produce artwork in examples such as these:-

  • Landscapes with scene-reflective water features
  • Mirror (or mirrors) of various types in an interior scene that may add to the drama or narrative.
  • Where goggles, a visor, a helmet or a character’s glasses use a play on reflections
  • Close up of characters where we see reflections in their eyes
  • Scenes using a broken mirror

We may talk about questions such as:-

  • What are some good quality props to use for mirrors?
  • What recommended shaders are available for reflective material?
  • What options are there in natural landscape scenes for scene-reflective water?

If you have artwork, resources or useful tips to share, even if it’s just for a few minutes, then please get in touch!

This event is free entry. There’s also a premium ticket that includes a stack of value!
