[Tutorial] Creating Dust And Atmosphere in IrayA video version is here.[Tutorial] Creating Dust And Atmosphere in Iray1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I learned this method from jag11 on the DAZ3D forums, who is thanked for permission to use it in this tutorial!
In 3Delight there's no way to create atmosphere or godrays (the rays that are visible when light passes through dust or particles). There are products to facilitate (one of them mine), but most are either not the easiest to use or ultimately just a faking of a feature the engine lacks. Many artists use postwork instead.
DAZ Studio 4.8 Beta's new Iray engine also lacks a native mechanism for creating atmospheric volumes - but it can be easily convinced to produce them! They will come from your lights and react to objects in your scene. I did a test image of Jack Tomalin's Chapter House Iray scene (free to Plat Club members

My artwork was recently featured in Thranduart’s parody music video of everyone’s favorite Elvenking Thranduil singing and dancing to Lady Gaga’s Donatella! It’s this piece on the wine bottles. It was such a joy to see the end result. Do check out the video, the cosplayers and crew did an amazing job putting together the adventures of Middle Earth’s most fabulous elf and his entourage.

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

THE HOBBITGuys, you gotta see this.THE HOBBIT2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first thing I would like to say is: REVIEWERS SHOULD READ THE BOOK.
Ooh, what a concept.
You know how I know a movie is going to be good? When the Chronicle's reviewer doesn't like it. (Except for Twilight because I can agree on that.)
Anyway, reread the first sentence.
I HAVE BEEN WAITING THREE YEARS FOR THIS MOVIE.
Three years? Yes, from the day in 7th grade when my radio station announced, "Peter Jackson will be making The Hobbit; he was just having financial difficulties." And then I was out of bed, yelling my head off, running into walls and smashing down the hallway. I arrived in the living room and shouted the news to my dad. He stared at me like I'd gone mad and probably burned his toast.
I've been counting down ever since.
And this movie was not disappointing. Martin Freeman is THE PERFECT Bilbo. I loved him already from BBC Sherlock, but this....I can't even....And all our favorites were back: Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel....

Care For The Animals!I'm tired of being harassed because I'm veagan and a proud member of the PETA team! People need to learn to be more accepting of differences and variety! I try my best to help all animals in anyway possible! If I get a change I will volunteer at a shelter to spend some time with animals! I see all life as beautiful from the tree, horse, cat, and even grass. It's all amazing and the farming industries are cruel locking up those poor mother cows being basically raped and constantly pregnant just so they pump out milk. Humans are the only animal that drinks milk when adults, that should say something! It's not natural nor to drink another species milk! The cow's babies are often taken away especially if it's a male he will be taken away to make veal, (a tender calf meat) they have no room outdoors and are in stalls so cramped they can't turn around! These are only a few examples of how cruel humans can be, please be compassionate. For more information visit www.peta.comCare For The Animals!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

When did you started to draw?
It's a good question. I could be 2 years old. I remember when I drew and elephant bathing in a river and my blue pencil broke, so I drew the water with red. xD Another one was made in the kindergarden. It was a camel and I still didn't get it back. I drew for competitons (dinosaur drawing contests, sometimes I drew cars or spaceships). In the school I didn't really concentrate on drawing because of my grades, but in the seventh grade I 'started it over'.
When did you join dA?
In 2011. I was still 12 years old.
Why do you draw dragons all the time?
First of all; I don't draw dragons all the time. Yes, I love them, but I draw a lot of other creature and la

Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:

It's summer again: time for my yearly journal update lol;;
It's been a busy year of balancing my work for the university with training to become a pro recurve archer and, perhaps most challengingly, actively pushing my art. I got to know some really cool people in business and entrepreneurship, as well as amazingly successful and inspiring artists like Brosa, and I must say their mentality has really made me reevaluate the art world and my role in it.
The business mentality is one of attaining success as measured by public interest, whereas artists tend to focus on improving for themselves. The idea here is that "if I can get my art to a point where I am happy with it, the rest of the world will see it and just follow". I was a firm believer in this, thinking the quality of art should speak for itself, and always feeling anxiety central at the thought of spamming people too much with my work. However, I've realized this way of thinking is flawed f

Most denizens of the West think of New Zealand as a little known outpost of civilization somewhere beyond Australia at the ends of the Earth.
Could any land be any farther from the European motherland, birthplace of the Renaissance that is the Genesis-point of the visual arts narrative we continue expanding and evolving today? And yet this remote country of islands in the Pacific has suddenly become a cinematic storytelling powerhouse, a film-friendly factory for the creation of some of the most important touchstone mass entertainment experiences to influence our popular culture in recent years.
My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.

I’ve been asked to submit some pictures from the HobbitCon2.
Unfortunately, most of the rather few pictures I made are quite crappy for I asked too much of my simple camera.
Also my best friend, who went with me, said if I submit any pictures featuring her, there will be trouble.
And when a gnome like me made any pictures from the stage, there were always quite a lot of heads in the way, plus I forgot completely to make any photos on the first day.
So have mercy on the little I can show you.
