I have begun storyboarding photo sessions using Affinity Photo, Daz Studio, and Dynamic Auto-Painter.

Cat and Mouse is a good example. I set the scene up in Daz Studio and rendered it. Then I post-processed it in Affinity Photo. Finally, to reduce the realism and get a more painterly feeling, I ran the picture through Auto-Painter.

Works pretty well, I think.

Now, of course, I have to do everything all over again, shooting with a live model. However, having a storyboard picture like this makes it a lot easier to figure out how to light the scene, to discuss the scene with the model, to figure out what props to use...

Where do you get a live model of a sabre-toothed cat?

Ordinary house cat, and a really, really good makeup-artist. :)

Actually, I cheat a bit. I bought the cat model in the Daz store.

For the final photo version, I will probably buy fur with longer hair. The model looks pretty realistic as it is right now though.

Can I put on my hat of a retired Lecturer in Animal Biology? Many illustrators of Sabre-toothed Cats fail to realize that these sabre-like canine teeth are strongly embedded in the upper jaw. The roots are at least as long as the exposed crowns and the whole tooth follows a continuous smooth curve. If you google images of a sabre-tooth skull you will see what I mean. 

Your image is more-or-less face on so this may not be so crucial.

If you need a live model, the cat across the road from us has got the biggest fangs I have ever seen in a domestic cat. It is also one of the daftest and noisiest!

So you gonna make a photo and insert a 3D model in post-op?

I like the idea of story-boarding this way. It would really help out the model in the photo shoot. Please post the final image, I'm curious.

It'll be awhile before we do the shoot, but I'll post the image once it is done.
