Turkey's Progression [WW2 mainly]

So I am learning how to do poses and such, so I am slowly going to dump everything I do into this thread and hopefully receive tips and advice to better myself in screenshots and posing.

**First Pose ever done.

**

Second pose

third attempt

Not bad, the third one looks pretty good. You’re getting notably better.

You’re definitely getting better, the thing I would say about the third one is that the depth of field does not blend in like it should. I can pretty plainly see a line where the blur starts.
Good work though. Keep it up!

FYI the usual crew for FlaK 18 gun was 5 guys. But that’s just a minor thing, you are clearly improving.

Uh, yeah and they usually are sitting and in place on the gun itself, but I decided to go a bit hipster and just throw two in there. :stuck_out_tongue:

You’re improving man, Keep it up.

the poses themselves are actually pretty good, but it doesn’t seem like you know about the camera zoom function and sdof, which I think is bottlenecking your screenshots into subpar.

after you get those down, I think it’ll make a world of a difference in quality. (it’s like the difference between cheap point and shoot cameras and expensive dslr’s)

then you can work on lighting and colors and post processing etc

they’re both in-game functions by the way

Mind filling me in? I use camera zoom, does that kill quality and what is SDOF?

By SDOF he means Super DOF. It’s in the post processing tab. And camera zoom means you just zoom in with the camera on your pose.

Just finished this one… I should probably just post everything in this thread for now on… so I don’t get banned…

You are getting better :smiley:
But this is all I could think of when I saw that 2nd screenshot…

I was going for the typical 80’s movie, spread legs gunslinger, many of the old movies with airborne commanders reminded me of it. :V
