How to skin foobar2000How to skin foobar20002 years ago in Software Reviews More Like This
I've been asked to write a tutorial on skinning foobar2000, because many f2k users encounter difficulties modifying skins or simply using them. I'm not an expert on the subject, I've started by installing a few skins and trying to understand how that worked ; I still think it's the best way to get a good handle on it, though a long and sometimes frustrating way. I invite you to try and see by yourself, to keep in mind that errors come all along and to share any advice, question, difficulty or anything you want to say, may you be new or expert. I also recommend to read this good tutorial (though it's partly based on outdated PanelsUI), maybe this less developed one, some of the very useful Hydr

J. Paul Getty - The Liberation of Masterpieces as Open Content
The J. Paul Getty Museum has initiated an Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible.
A first sharing of 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection, including many masterworks, has just been made available and all are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.
In a brilliant stroke, the Getty Museum has liberated one of the top collections of art in the world not just for access but for use. The museum is literally “beaming up” the great works in its collection as living resour
Luxus and Luxrender Beginner's Guide - DAZ StudioLuxus and Luxrender Beginner's Guide - DAZ Studio2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Reality 2 might be the king of LuxRender plugins for DAZ Studio, and with Reality 3 on the horizon, that is not likely to change, but for those of us looking for something a little more flexible in the way it interfaces with LuxRender, the recently released Luxus is very a very attractive option. A number of LuxRender's features are not supported by Reality, but Luxus opens the options all the way out, and even has fields for entering newly released code to incorporate the latest LuxRender features.
The problem here is that configuring LuxRender's render engine and materials are complex tasks, and can be daunting to DS users that are used to the relative safety of the neat and simple interfac
Making A Living at DAZ3DEvery so often someone asks if this is possible, how hard this is, and how to do it. I'm writing this journal entry so I can just link them back to it instead of typing the same post or forum PM repeatedly.Making A Living at DAZ3D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm putting these down in the order they are usually asked, not in the order I think they should be asked.
Q: How much money can I make?
A: I make a good living for a single person in the Western USA selling in the DAZ market. I also sell at Renderosity, but I would describe that as a "hobby" or "bonus" income; it would be hard to do without it, but it's not what pays the rent every month, either. For the most part you will make back according to the time you put in. Only a few top artists get into six figures in American dollars in our market, and they are the biggest names who sell the biggest products.
Q: Can I do it in my spare time?
A: Not if you want to make a living. We do have hobbyist artists at DAZ3D, for whom this is a second i

She's not the kind of girl
Who likes to tell the world
About the way she feels about herself
She takes a little time
In making up her mind
She doesn't want to fight against the tide
Lately I'm not the only one
I say never trust anyone
Always the one who has to drag her down

[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1 to G2(Updated for new features in DS 4.6.2.)[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1 to G22 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been hearing a fair amount of complaints about Genesis 2 Female lately, and I understand; I said many of the same things when it first came out. I should've known better, because I also did this when Genesis came out, but sometimes we live and learn slower than we'd like.
One of the most common, and most easily answered, is "I already have a bunch of characters for G1 that I can't recreate on G2." For this purpose, G2 refers to Genesis 2, not the old Poser G2 figures.
Well, as a matter of fact, you can. With practice you can do it in seconds per FBM (don't let the length of the tutorial fool you). The first version of this workflow came from Kattey on the DAZ forum, for which I acknowledge credit.
Here is that (lengthy) thread: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/24093/

Sartorial Storytelling: Character at a Glance
Pulp Fiction by Rembrush
Masterful storytelling is about suspending disbelief.
One would think the most important element of a story being told is the events being depicted. Belief in these events, however, is a prerequisite to appreciation. Picture this: watching Anna Karenina in the theater, you’re riveted to the epic tale of doomed lovers. Your friend, a history professor with a fetish for details, laughs at random moments. After the movie, he pontificates at length on how unbelievable the movie was

Character Sheet Generator
"The idea here is to list everything that you can think of about a character and create a printable character sheet. It is unlikely that you will include all of this information in a short story or even a novel. This form will create a character with enough depth that you can pick and choose as you write which characteristics you would like to include. Fill these pages out carefully, copy the results into a document, and refer to the document as you write. Review all your character sheets frequently so you can keep a clear image of your characters and create real three dimensional persons for your story.
The information that you enter here are kept temporarily. The information should be here when you come back, but is not permanent. A future enhancement will be save your character in a database.

Bobby Chiu's 4 keys to setting good goalsGOOOAAALS! The World Cup is the perfect time to talk about goals.Bobby Chiu's 4 keys to setting good goals11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Setting good goals is useful to not just artists but anyone who wants to achieve something.
When I graduated college and started my career, my goals were unfocused. Basically, I just wanted to get a job doing what I love, which in my case is of course drawing and painting. That was my whole goal. I didn't aim for anything more than that, and as a result, my career went nowhere.
Then, after reflecting on my career and examining the careers of people I admired (again, not just artists), I developed a master plan for my success that basically boiled down to four things:
1. Recognize the importance of setting goals.
Let's say you have the extraordinary ability to kick a ball farther and more accurately than anyone you know. As a result, you want to become a soccer player. But then when you're on the soccer pitch and the ball comes to you, you just kick it as hard as you can in what

I've found a certain value in doing these wallpacks in themes as opposed to just one big download of various graphics at the end of each year. I found that it really brought a certain level of polish and cohesiveness to the packs, as evidenced by the Drowned Harbor wallpack. It also helps serve as a point of inspiration and focus/North Star throughout the process.
The theme of this wallpack is "symbolism" and it's effect and/or control over us. Everything from religious symbolism to superstitions to occult to symbolism around death and the afterlife and so on.
I tried to cover this theme without being too brash or obvious. I wanted

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.
