Hey dear watchers,
Here's a new XPS Version with a really helpful new feature
Again? I just recently upgraded to XPS 10.9.6!
- Yes that's true but XPS 10.9.6 was a needed update because older versions expired! This version has a nice new feature + the features of version 10.9.6 are of course all still included. If you don't want to update that's okay too! Your current version won't stop working.
Okay, so what is this new feature?
- The new feature is the support of 2 UV layers instead of 1.
- UV mapping is bascially what tells a a model how to display a texture. A full explanation of that is here for the ones that are interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UV_mapping
Just like you can do layers in Photoshop, Gimp etc you can also do layers of different UV layouts. Meaning that you can make a new, maybe easier to bake a AO maps - layout without corrupting your mo

Request by :iconSumireHaikuXNA: :iconhowfie: and many others ...
- A mesh part can now refer more than 59 bones. (No limit! Tested with 32000 bones!!)
- Removed all blocks related to "nude" models.. (models with words: 'nude', 'naked' , 'by__' now can be loaded)
EDIT: I threw you a bone and helped you cheat on that quiz: Such a bonehead! Your aim is to bone the Venus Edition! Can you spot me a few bones, I need to smoke some bones in the staircase.

Hey dear watchers!
Long time no new version of XPS i see. But don't worry here's a new one!
This is also a kind of needed update for evryone using the previous versions since they will expire tommorrow...
Expire? What does that mean?
- It means that your version of XPS will not start anymore. You will get a error message on startup.
But i liked my version, why upgrade?
- New features have been added and old ones are still working! I tested the version myself and saw nothing that doesn't work anymore.
Wait, you said 'New Features'?
- Yepp! Here they are:
- > No expiration date anymore. This program will work as long as you want it to!
- > Save as 'old Generic_Item' as an option is now available under 'Modify> Save Generic_Item'. Old Generic Item just means that these exported models will also work in XNALara. This works most of the times but not when

This converter will allow you to convert NicoDouga video into Mp3s much like decent converts for Youtube, which you can also do on this.
It seems like Any Audio Converter is acting up for some of us, me included. So I found something else.
No install needed not even a nico account. Just have the url It takes a bit but I tried it and it DID download the video I wanted into an mp3 and the quality isn't all that bad SO please check it out.

[***!!] Anti-Bullying CollabImage by Fullmetalpipsqueak2[***!!] Anti-Bullying Collab2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You must be fed up and sick of all of the anti-bullying journals that go around by now... I hope not, because bullying is such a serious matter. More serious than some seem to realise and understand. I really don't understand why there is so much bullying going on, especially online and especially in the MMD Community.
I must admit, I was bullied a lot when I was younger. There was this one girl and her group who would always try and bring me down and they scared the hell out of me. All I wanted was to be left alone and get on with what I needed to do to get through school, but they would always be there at every corner making it harder and harder for me. At first it was just words, "Why do you dress like that? You're such a goth. Freak!", just because I was into different music and had a different dress style and preferred darker and more Victorian gothic clothing (Long skirts, tailcoats, etc.)
But it then started to get wor

You are weird. Who wants to DL small versions anyway?

Okay fine...but what's new in this?

Creating manga is quite daunting as a project. You have to worry about so many things and prepare for unforeseen problems. While I don’t claim to be an expert on the field, I can at least share with you my experiences while on a quest to create my own manga.

Many people have come to me in the past with questions regarding whether their work qualified as Manga & Anime or Fan Art, same happened with many Daily Deviations that were placed in the M&A gallery when they should have been submitted to the Fan Art Gallery, oops!
Do you have doubts regarding the submission process? Wonder no more, we'll unveil all the mysteries surrounding the categories! :iconokie2plz:
Fan art includes those artworks that are based on or contain material such as characters, settings, concepts or universes in general that are copyrighted to someone else other than the artist creating said Fan artwork.
Manga and Anime art, on the other hand, is home for all the artworks that artists have created from scratch and are not related to any preexisting universe nor contain any copyrighted material.

Hey dear watchers,

They are meant to be in original state, which is why some things like face posing may not be possible (as the ingame version doesn't have facial bones).

So here's what happen! >< I made the UV's and baked the AO and cleaned it up then realized I had mirrored the chest plate with the goodsmile logo on it. Notice the goodsmile flame is not a mirror so mirrored UV's is a big problem! ><! Ouch so I had to shift around about 25% of the UV's so I can make room for both the left and right side of the chest plate in the texture map then rebake the chest AO and clean it up again. I UV like a video game character with tightly packed and puzzled UV islands so if you change anything a lot it effects the other UV's greatly resulting in a lot of adjustment for both UV's and texture. Because of this I had to move all parts around in the texture to line up with its new position in the U

XNALara is a real time posing and rendering program written by Dusan Pavlicek and had been released for the first time on February, 20, 2009 on tombraiderforums.com.
Dusan, the creator of XNALara, managed to extract Lara Croft's model from the game Tomb Raider Underworld (TRU), converted it for his program, using the Microsoft XNA framework, and shared it, letting people play with it and create art.
Why dA sucks for MMD modelersThis may seem a little ranty but I feel these are real points based on my observations.Why dA sucks for MMD modelers2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I notice every time I come to this site my cover page where art is featured is covered with a range of illustrations, character sheets, and other pretty mediocre 2d stuff. Pretty much none of it is 3d and that bugs me. Something about the effort and time it takes to make something in 3d and you see a sketch/doodle getting spot lighted that rubs me the wrong way.
On the occasion I do see something 3d, you know, that western world of warcraft clone crap.
This site has an entire community nested in it that does asian/anime art style yet I see none of it getting attention from the dA staff.
Maybe the dA 3d anime community is full of editors and people too young to have the skill level they require. Or the fact they don't consider editors artist because not enough of their content is original. I have no idea what their deal is but I'm not a editor and this brings me to my next point.

The easy way to do it is to change the render group of the mesh you wanna make glow to 30 or 31(if you want to use alpha channel)
You need only 3 textures for this group
short example for the mesh.ascii:
30_display (mesh name..can be whatever you want.. with render group 30 assigned)
1 # uv layers
3 # texture
display_d.png (diffuse map)
0 # uv layer index
display_n.png (normal map)
0 # uv layer index
display_e.png (emission map, pretty similar to the specular map texture but coloured)
0 # uv layer index
(lighter will be the emission texture, more will shine trough darkness but in a "flat" way )
after that..activate bloom effect and you'll see the m

Yay, the semester is finally over! Man, I'm so thrilled about my new found freedom that I don't even know what should I begin to do first. The weather has been fabulous for past few days so if you don't see me around here that's because I'm probably hugging the lawn or trees somewhere outside. The beginning of summer always makes me ridiculously happy...
Anyway, you can expect more comics and artwork soon - I'm going to dig up my sketch books and try to decide what to draw first. So. Many. Ideas. Oh, and those of you who are waiting for me to do a prize artwork/art trade/commission, worry not - I'll have more time to work on them now and I'll get back to you asap.

I had meant to post something on this matter back in October since it was when I noticed more and more "publishers" like this popping up on the site, but never got around to it.

What is a scam publisher?
Essentially, a scam publisher is a press that cheats authors into believing that they are getting traditionally published by their rules and guidelines. However, if you read the fine print, you'll see that "traditionally" publishing you is not at all what's happening. This can range from promising royalties which never come, making you pay a fee to be published, or even stem from lack of professionalism. While the term "scam" usually means forcing you to pay, there are many other
