This is the most important phase of your production and often the most neglected. Most of the worst renders completely skip this step and dive straight into disaster.
You are lacking a purpose and intended audience
Before even coming up with an idea, it's good to think to yourself "Who is the story for? Why am I doing this? What do I really want to do?". A lot of people skip this step, thinking it's unimportant, this usua

Lighting and Texturing
The light seems to come from everywhere at once
In many 3D packages, under the lighting toolset, there is a button called "Ambient Light". Every time you use this light, a little part of you dies inside. There is no example in the real world of anything that is lit from all sides at once. This is a cheap trick that used to be used back before lighting was accessible and able to be used realistically, and looks something like this:

Gods and IronIm thrilled to tell you that the first chapter of my book Gods and Iron is done and you guys will be able to read it In a brief summary, it's a fantasy novel, telling the story of Helissa Reinhart, the fiery daughter of the Earl of the Vallers.

Answer: you shoot like a girlHi againAnswer: you shoot like a girl2 years ago in Personal More Like This
and thanks for all the responses to my last journal entry.
First I have to clarify: I think that most people that say that i shoot like a girl, don't mean it in a negative way. They often express it by adding that my pics are so romantic and fragile or something like that.
I just always wondered why ppl think that this might have something to do with me being female. When ppl learn about my job, meaning that I am a mathematician, they seem to be surprised, like that wouldn't be typical female. Although then my photographic work looks typically female to them. I was wondering if that idea came up before or after knowing that I am a girl.
Regarding my models: I think it's true that they feel more relaxed with a girl as a photographer and that it helps with the photos then. But I also think that it is a real benefit for my work as a photographer that i used to model myself (well and sometimes still do), 'cause I usually know exactly what poses and expressions I want and how to ge

As I promised, here is a video I made with :iconUrbanMelon: that shows the colorization process I use for the characters painting.
I know it's a little quick, but maybe in the future I'll try to add more videos like that. They probably only will show some little elements painting like eyes, hands, etc... with a normal playing speed.

Life on Mars
As the next planet over that visiting wouldn’t be all that difficult (Venus being way too hot), especially after our trips to our own moon, Mars has always held a special attraction for our science fiction writers and illustrators. In fact, the comic book and the paperback novel are media in which fiction and art have formed a bond like no other in which the exterior presentation (the cover art) for the artform itself (the sci-fi novel’s text) is often of equal importance, creating a combined force, in serving the narrative. Mars may ultimately become a forward military outpost defending against invading aliens, or prime real estate for hu

So some of you may have noticed that my webcomic series, Post-Mortem, is taking HELLA long to update. This was actually because commissions were taking up most of my free drawing time, but LET'S PRETEND THAT WASN'T THE CASE FOR A SECOND
So... what if something else had happened instead that prevented the comic from being updated? This is where you come in. Draw what you think could have happened that prevented the comic from being updated.
There could be all sorts of possibilities, from Thaxter and Grimm (the main characters) being kidnapped by the Russian mafia to medli20's arms falling off and taking ages to grow back. It's all up to you; get creative! :icont

Octane vs Reality** Octane vs Reality **Octane vs Reality2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Gone are the days when my only option in Poser was to render with Firefly. Nowadays we have high-end 3rd party renderers available that offer a new level of realism that was never possible before. In this article I will discuss Octane and LuxRender.
Same Poser scene rendered in Firefly, Octane and Reality/Lux with a single HDRI image
First of all, let's see the pricing:
* Octane: $380 includes stand-alone renderer + integrated Poser plugin.
* Lux: free renderer + $60 Poser "Reality 3" plugin.
Now let's see the specs:
- 100% GPU render (extremely fast).
- Requires high-end video card with at least 1Gb memory.
- Renders inside of Poser itself.
- Preview your changes as you do them in Poser.
- 100% CPU render (slow), with option to include GPU raytracing (still slow).
- Does not require high-end video card, but high-end CPU may help compensat

Mission: Photograph the pageant pictures for the Regional Hooters Pageant.
Goal: Offer something unique to Hooters and the women in the Pageant. Give them something other than, the normal pageant pictures.
The situation actually turned out great this year. I had a space that allowed me to have privacy and was next to the trailer the women where changing in. The previous year we had issues because it is a outdoor event and a lot of the "fans" tried to mingle with the contestants. So we had the perfect spot. We were also able to use the district managers mustang as a prop so that was really cool. The soft box is boomed up front. Always remember, especially when shooting outside, to bring something to weigh down the boom. Too easy for it to get blown over, even by the slightest gust of wind. The second light (gelled with pu

Don't Worry, Be Happy"I look at it this way: I never took lessons to play the drums. I never took lessons to play the guitar. I just sort of figured it out. I think that if you’re passionate about something and you’re driven and you’re focused, you can do anything you want to do in life." --- Dave Grohl.Don't Worry, Be Happy9 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is true, and the best advice you'll ever hear. I've never taken a photography lesson but I love it. What you need to understand is that I've literally taken several hundred thousand shitty photos. And somewhere along the way I got good at it. The coolest thing is that in a year I'll be better. Ten years from now I can only imagine the quality of work I'll put out. If you're lucky enough to stumble upon the thing you love you'd have to be six kinds of an idiot not to pursue it. Even if you never get good you'll have "wasted" your life being happy, not such a bad fate.
Have photographers abandoned Deviantart?Deviantart was for me a turning point in my career as a photographer.It was the first site i signed in to share my photographs and watch other photographs for inspiration.I would go to the popular section in search of inspiration and most of the photographs back then where outstanding.Have photographers abandoned Deviantart?6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now days it gets harder and harder to see nice photographs in the popular section.For example right now in the popular for 8 hours the top 10 photos, 6/10 are either artist nude or cosplay .And that isn't something happens just now.For the last year this is the normal here.
Don't get me wrong i like artistic nude if it is artistic and not just a girl with legs wide open.As for the cosplay i like it as well if it is carefully executed and not just a girl with big boobs wearing a costume in a fair or comic-con (by the way most of the photographs in popular section are pretty good and doesn't help my case but this is only for today).
So what is the problem here?Have deviantart became too mainstream and the
A few thoughts...In case you didn't know, there are some spoilers for a Naruto Chapter, seemingly having skipped 10 years or more (movie is suppossed to be set 2 years after the final sasuke Naruto fight) and SO MUCH is seemingly confirmed, just from these images, such as Pairings, and... yes... Future children.A few thoughts...3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Originally, I thought Kishi might do the usual thing and end the series on a happy note, but not really giving us any pairings confirmed, etc, but his... this is a whole lot of new stuff, and while I am glad... (especially for the naurhina kids, who I am calling spikey Hinata, and spikey Apple head for now) I am a little... I dunno, put out, I guess? not for any reason other than NHC. With these confrimations, I now have to re think some things, like the kids I had, will they be the same designs and names as the canon? or keep them as OC? Should I rework to the canon pairings? and various other things! THough I still need to read the chapter, when it comes out, chapter 699/700 whichever it is.&
