Nice looking scene, but I think the shadowing is a tad off (mostly because the tummy of the lady in red is to harshly lighted?)

I appreciate the comment - you have a good eye for detail!

The shadowing might not be to your liking and I appreciate that. However when using a 3d program, the actual highlights and shadows are caused by "physical" lights that are placed in the scene, so it's not something I drew. The lighter tones on the stomach are created by the same emissive light as those on her face, arms and chest. Yes, I could have changed it or toned it down in Photoshop, but I found it acceptable and realistic, so just kept it. Thanks!

Makes total sense, when using 3d programs do you get to choose the source of light? ( like angle and intensity?

I'm sorry - just saw your question now.

It depends on the program. There are of course some default settings, where you can't control much, and in others you can control a lot of the specifics regarding the lighting; size and type of source, color temperature, shadow hardness and brightness etc. In fact, in Daz Studio (the program I usually use) I don't even understand all the controls - some are very technical and totally over my head.

But as a photographer (my "day job") what I enjoy about using the program is that the digital lights work very much like real lights do, so the manner in which I place them is very similar to how I would work if lighting an actual photography assignment.
