PASS Watercolor: Rose Garden by NightsongWS PASS Watercolor: Rose Garden by NightsongWS
Ok, this is a bit of a large set, so please bear with me if these descriptions get a bit monotonous. In order to keep from going insane (and because I've got a series of projects lined up to work on today) I'm putting the same/similar description in each of the watercolor-based images originally made for my store.

Ahem! Shall we?

This is one of a series of images that I made to illustrate the use of a set of Poser shaders that I built this Summer. Although other sets were designed to replicate halftone, 'toon, or even charcoal and traditional media, the largest selection of shaders were my attempt at recreating watercolor as 3D shaders.

Nothing comes close to being as beautiful as true watercolor paintings, with their washes of color that bleed into one another. However, these shaders were the fruits of an immense amount of research into Poser's shader node and math system, and comes as close as I could to the beauty of the original media. There is no postwork required, and you can add image maps or transparency maps to -any- watercolor set except the background sets, such as Depth Cue or Papers.

This particular image uses the following watercolor sets:
- Watercolor: Starter Kit
- Watercolor: Flowers and Petals
- Watercolor: Small Foliage Plants
- Watercolor: Glass
- Watercolor: Sheer Fabric
- Watercolor: Fabric
- Watercolor: Flesh Tones
- Watercolor: Depth Cue Backgrounds
- Watercolor: Hair
- Watercolor: Papers
- Watercolor: Metal and Stone

The handling of light, scale, and various other factors are varied between each bundle, and a Tips&Tricks guide is included for the whole PASS series if you run into anything you want to tweak or change. The watercolor Real Deal sets are being released gradually over a five-week period starting with all of the bundles. So, if you want them early, you'll have to grab a bundle. Some items will be available -only- via the Ultimate Bundle until their scheduled release date.
