Gay Christmas cards...!

After I posted the Christmas Angel art, I was asked, "Why don't you do a series of gay Christmas cards and publish them at Zazzle. So...

Give me a reason why not! here's one of 'em. I'll do three or four, publish them (to Zazzle, no less), and put the links on the blog here.

This one was a challenge. You have a real background, two digital models, and firelight. O...kay. Now, DAZ's Michael 4 is a fantastic model, but when you import two of him into the same scene, they come in as bald twins wearing spandex boxers. Your mission, should you decide to accept it (and you better had ... this is where it all starts!) is to make them look very different, and get them posed realistically -- together, no less; and then take a very limited wardrobe of clothing that's available for Michael 4 and make that look different ; then set up three or four lights to simulate the lighting conditions in the photographic background.

So, here you have two Michaels re-re-redesigned; firelight was simulated using an orange light, a yellow light and a white light, and the result is ... really nice. I call this little piece, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas."

Please do check out my portfolio:
