[Tutorial] Sculpting in Blender 2.6x for Poser/DAZSkiriki asked for this. I've been putting it off because it's very involved, but it is a good workflow to know if you're doing Poser/DAZ props and outfits on a budget. Blender is free and, while it has notable shortcomings in terms of painting across contiguous nonidentical UVs (which is why it doesn't compete with Zbrush and 3dCoat in those areas), it is great for base meshing and many kinds of sculpting.[Tutorial] Sculpting in Blender 2.6x for Poser/DAZ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some preliminary controls in Blender:
Scroll Mouse Wheel: Zoom in and out.
Hold Mouse Wheel/Drag: Rotate view dynamically.
Shift/Hold Mouse Wheel/Drag: Move view horizontally/vertically.
Numpad keys: different orthographic views; 5 switches orthographic/perspective.
Tab: Switch modes. You can see the Mode dropdown just below the 3d window. It will say Object mode when you start up Blender.
Right Click: Select an object.
G: grab an object to move it.
Right-click after G: Let go of moved object, letting it snap back to its original
The Server is our homeYesterday I was asked to review the server logs after another malicious attack on our server. When I was asked to do so I could not, because the girls and I were in the middle of our first recording session of the year. When the session was over I was exhausted after spending nearly eight hours solid on the computer, and needed to go do something else. By the time I returned home from my outing I was to tired to get the server logs.The Server is our home1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In order to get the logs to look over user activity in order to spot any malicious looking activity I need to shut the server down, back the whole thing up, then go through each log top to bottom. This can take a couple of hours. Even if I do spot malicious looking activity I can not be sure the person I'm reading is actually the one committing crimes. A server log is circumstantial evidence only.
Today I checked to see if the server was up, and it is not. I have left it off to sleep until I can get to it, possibly

I.L. Jackson's Guide to Ship Classes
As anyone who has glanced at my gallery knows, I am a star ship fan(atic). I love designing my own starships and I know others do too. But, I've noticed that a lot of artists do not have a good idea of ship classes, what they do (traditionally) and their uses, particularly in a fleet. So, here is a guide to ship classes as they have been used traditionally and how they would likely be used in a sci-fi setting.
This is the one a LOT of people get wrong. A Capital ship is an anchor ship for a fleet, meaning that fleets are built around the capabilities of the capital ships. Just about every other ship in the fleet has some job relating to the capital ships, whether it be defending or tending or supplying that ship.
Capital ships tend to be the largest warships in the fleet. Capital ships also virtually NEVER operate alone. A great example
Free adviceSomeone recently asked me for some advice about going to art college and becoming an illustrator. Here's what I said. Maybe someone here will find this interesting too...Free advice3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) It's a tough life as an artist. You need more than just good drawing abilities to get by. I know a lot of people who are WAY better than me but can't make it as artists. You need to be personable and likable. Work on your people skills and be sincere. People can tell when it's fake.
2) Learn a broad range of skills. Don't just focus on illustration, but also learn the fundamentals of design, sculpture, painting, storyboarding, etc... those skill will help you more than you can possibly imagine.
3) Be yourself. Find your own style and really refine it.
4) Don't waste your education. Don't go out and party and drink when you should be studying and doing homework. They give you that homework for a reason!
5) Always try to be the best. Challenge yourself to make your assignments the best in your class. Always try to be

I will eventually post stuff here on DA, but I felt the format of my blog lent itself better to an overview of the process, and to acknowledge some of the others involved. So I decided to begin with that out of consideration to the talented people I feel privileged to have worked with!

There is an "Art of" book, which I just got - and it's quite nice! But it contains only a fraction of the art generated for the project by myself and the other artists on the team.
I worked with a small group here in the US that included Steven Messing, David Levy, Ben Procter, Carlos Huante, Neville Page & Daniel Simon. And there are other artists who worked over in the UK when the film went into full production. So you can imagine quite a lot of artwork was generated!

I'm using their minecraft skins NOT the owners themselves, like Sky and Dawn, they are no longer together, but at the time i made the comic layout they were, but i did tweak it and they just freinds/ex in the comic, but i did not remove the characters... so, if any status of the real people chance, like no longer friends with so-and-so, they're Minecraft OC will NOT reflect!!!
so... yes, in my Minecraft:The Awakening, Notch is still married to EZ (their MC skins)... THIS IS A FAN MADE COMIC!!! I don't go to people who ship Ant and CaptainSparlkez and tell them off... so plz drop it and stop sending me notes! >:E
if you tell me again they or them (or whatever) no longer together or what ever, i'll send you back here...

Orion EFT1 Launch on 12/4 Update 9-6/10/14Exploration Flight Test 1 or EFT-1 (previously known as Orion Flight Test 1 or OFT-1) is the first planned uncrewed test flight of the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle. Set to launch in 2014 atop a Delta IV Heavy from Space Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the mission will be a multi-hour, two-orbit test of the Orion Crew Module featuring a high apogee on the second orbit and a high-energy reentry at around 20,000 mph. This mission design is essentially equivalent to that of the Apollo 4 mission of 1967, which validated the Apollo flight control system and heat shield at re-entry conditions planned for the return from lunar missions.Orion EFT1 Launch on 12/4 Update 9-6/10/142 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Extinction of the Gentlemen.Hokage report,The Extinction of the Gentlemen.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"I was riding a public utility bus. All seats were occupied, when a group of commuters entered the bus. Most of them were girls. As the bus started to travel the road, the girls are standing, holding tight among the bars. Thus, I stood up, offering my seat to one of them. The girl happily accepted. I was hoping that the guys sitting would do the same ..but none followed, it frustrated me"
Is it really that hard to be a gentleman in the 21st century, that a mere survival of such a knight is slim? Let me define a gentleman, well a gentleman is gentle + man (what? Can't think of any definition right now heh) ..Gentle means that he is proper, conservative, ethical, morale, and simply a nice guy altogether. As the age of romanticism grew, and the rights of women became equal to men, the guys in general, saw the girls as a subject of beauty, of a fragile vase, shining under the sun. Chivalry on that moment is the code of conduct of knights. With Chivalry, they are to

By Miriam Kramer, Staff Writer | August 12, 2014 11:29am ET
Robin Williams, an Oscar-winning actor best known for his comedic work, died yesterday (Aug. 11) of an apparent suicide at 63 years old. In 1988, Williams helped to wake up the crew of NASA's space shuttle Discovery to start their morning.
"G-o-o-d morning Discovery!" Williams said in a video of the wakeup call posted by Space.com partner collectSPACE.com. "G-o-o-d morning Discovery! G-o-o-d morning Discovery! Rise and shine, boys. Time to start doing that shuttle shuffle. You know what I mean. Hey, here's a little song coming from the billions of us to the five of you."
Mission Controllers are seen laughing and smiling in the video as Williams' recorded wakeup (which makes reference to his 1987 role in "Good Morning, Vietnam") is broadcast to the astronauts orbiting Earth. The actor's introduction led into a space shuttle-themed song to the

dogswhen i walk tasha in the morning we always run into little babies in strollers who often want to pet the doggie.dogs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
tasha is friendly and affectionate, and we always stop.
but I always tell the baby, hey, tasha is a friendly dog, and it is o.k. to pet her, but not all dogs are friendly like her, so be careful.
once we were on our walk, and a german shephard that would always bark at tasha got loose.
he came running across the street, right towards tasha, without making a sound, and we stood there, tasha's tail wagging.
the german shephard proceeded to go straight to tasha's throat and viciously attacked her. It was so sudden and shocking. I started yelling "whose dog is this, whose dog is this" and I waited a few seconds for the snarling to stop, but it escalated. The shephard moved to her hind quarters, and I instinctively realized that he was trying to cripple her and get her on the ground so he could really savage her.
so I just started hitting the shephard on the head, not hard at fir
Our server what will get you banned? UPDATEDI may not be on the server much lately, and I have a few reasons for that. Computer issues are on the top of that list. Another reason is that I was trying to finish up the new map. Unfortunately when I was forced to change server hosts the map seems to have gone missing. I will keep trying to hunt it down and if It is well and truly gone I will simply start over from scratch.Our server what will get you banned? UPDATED3 months ago in Personal More Like This
As for the server and map we are on now I do have a few things I would like to talk about.
Now adding something that should be OBVIOUS: Hacking in any way. If you use mods or hacks of any kind and our mods catch you, that's an auto ban. Why, you ask? Because it is inherently unfair to the other players.
First this server is NOT for PVP of any kind unless both parties have agreed to it. IF YOU ARE HIT and you have not given permission, and you hit back in "Self defense" you can BOTH be banned!
Why you ask?
Because death is meaningless here.
I am a National Socialist.True National Socialism. Information provided here will help in fully understanding the doctrines of National Socialism. There are three main myths that are always utilized by the enemies of truth.I am a National Socialist.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. NS is a racist political movement.
While NS is a political movement it is NOT racist. True NS respects all races, cultures and beliefs.
2. NS promotes white racial supremacy.
This is false, NS promotes that each race strives to be the best that it can in everything it sets out to do. (If this myth were true then there wouldn't have been so many different races following it.)
3. NS advocates and practices antisemitism.
Although I don't subscribe to the widely accepted definition of the word "antisemitism" I'll leave it alone to keep this description simple. This myth also falls under the previous two about race. The answer remains the same.
NS doesn't tolerate enormous amounts of legislative powers given to a small group that then enacts legislation that only benefits that same small group

Same game, New mapMy Dear Denizens,Same game, New map1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am sad to report that I have been greifed nearly ten times. My farm animals have been repeatedly slaughtered, my home ruined over and over again, my chests smashed, and my hard earned items taken. I tried to ride out the continual wave of vandalism and theft, but after one particularly horrific attack I am very sorry to say I lost my patience. In creative mode I removed all traces of my farm, freed the animals I still had left, and moved to Jeff’s hotel.
Sadly, that too was attacked. Though thanks to you, my dear Denizens, I did not see the damage because you had repaired it. This is a burden you should not have to bare, and I am sorry I have not been able to protect you from this.
I could give you excuses here, telling you why I’ve not been better, like how I wasn’t ready to take on the job of running a server, or how I don’t know Command Block code, but the reality is that I have simply tried to ignore
