[Tutorial] The Map Transfer UtilityThe Map Transfer utility in DAZ Studio 4.5 Pro is used to convert textures from one UV to another. In this instance I will use the example of converting M4 textures to the M5 genitalia UV, since that's what I've been using it for recently. I've used this to create M5 gens from the m4 textures I did for all of my character packs as well as to convert M4 Albane's gen textures for M5 use.[Tutorial] The Map Transfer Utility2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You will need:
The M4V4 UV Mapped M5 Gens (here: https://sites.google.com/site/crblackthorne/downloads )
The M5 Gens from DAZ3D (we won't be using them directly, but you have to have them to use the above)
The GIMP or Photoshop, for cleanup. Instructions will be for the GIMP.
OR if doing this with another figure: You need the figure to have BOTH the original UV you're converting FROM and the new one you're converting TO. So if you're using Genesis, you probably can convert Gen 4 to Gen 5 UVs, but not Gen 3 to Gen 4/5 (unless you know of a Gen 3 UV for Genesis set I'm un

Monster Me Up Contest - Winners Announced!So pleased to share with all the Winners - Thanks for all the creepy, errr...rather CREATIVE entries - our judges are cross eyed, hoarse and not speaking to one another after several days of debate. They may never recover. Enough though - here are the results!Monster Me Up Contest - Winners Announced!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
The judging process:
All entries were numbered and put in a dropbox. A point system was ascribed and a survey via MailChimp used to vote. Two members of Novel Expression tabulated votes independently, entering resulted in a spread sheet, then swapped spread sheets to check results.
Undying appreciation to Sheridanla, EllenCHerbert, and NovExChip, and special guest judges: Spotted,ermes-buttolo and
HOW TO USE MY STOCK(Update August 2012)HOW TO USE MY STOCK5 years ago in Personal More Like This
"I hereby grant all DeviantArtists permission to use my stock in any and all Deviant Prints without restriction."
Since I no longer have time to track and +fav every use of my stock, you are encouraged to post a link to your use of the stock on the comment area of each image, so others can see your work.
Email is the best/only way to reach me. Do not email me unless you are sure it's important! I am firstname.lastname@example.org
MY RULES ("'Do as thou will't shall be the whole of the law")
You are required to give me appropriate credit as photographer where and however possible. My stock is free; the way you 'pay' to use it is by crediting me. It doesn't need to be in big letters on the image, it can be in text or a link or in liner notes, or whatever - but it's your responsibility to acknowledge if my work contributes significantly to yours. If you post a link, I prefer it to be to my personal website ( www.ranum.com ) My real name is

Much teeth-gnashing and pulling of hair. The entries are amazing and we anticipate much, shall we say, discussion over the next week as results come in.
Hope you are enjoying this wonderful time of year. As Dexter says:
I love Halloween.
The one time of year when everyone wears a mask...
not just me..

Use my stock commercially, make prints, sell your art, post on other sites, etc. I simply ask that you credit "TaraFly" as the model, message me with a link to your work... and wherever it's possible, please provide viewers with a link to my stock.
1. If you post the work on deviantArt FIRST, and note me with the link, then you can post it anywhere else without notifying me.
2. If you decide not to post it here, then please provide the link to the webpage where it's displayed so I can see it!
If you are using me commercially, please stop and ask before using me in ads which are controversial in nature; I might not enjoy waking up one morning to find my face plastered on billboards across the United States promoting political/religious beliefs I don't agree with. And I'd have alot of explaining to do!
You may NOT:
Use my stock for extreme violent and sexual works, if you pl
