Pure, WIP

Thinking of adding more but wanted to get something done before I leave for a majority of the weekend. Definitely have a lot to tweak but here is the state of the image so far.

Wow beau11 so great looking! Love it! I like how the background is like plain that gives it a good texture. The ladybug looks awesome! I wish I had time to create something XD To busy at this point!

A journey into the compositor, blend modes, renderpasses, and lots of vertex painting with masks.

Really enjoying these challenges and learning more than ever, and more often then not,

A generic background image using a DNA model originally from here.
I looked at the actual nucleotides in the model to get the title, although I probably got it backwards. :slight_smile:
