How to create space artI'll cut right to the chase! This news article will be about tutorials and resources related to space and space art. In an attempt to bring order in this chaos we call life, art and news articles I'll try my best to classify the resources and the tutorials into categories - knowing all too well that those classifications are arbitrary. Enough of that though, let us begin.How to create space art5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Space art can be divided in a number of sub genres, in this article I'll talk about two such categories (again knowing all too well a lot of space art falls in neither of these categories); classic space art and terraspace. Your typical space scene usually consists of one or several space elements and celestial bodies, such as planets, nebulas and stars. In terraspace another dimension is added. The "camera" or point of view is not located in outer space, but on the ground. The space elements are then put in the sky. To achieve this, the artist often have a stock photo of an up-close environment in the foreground (tra

The problem is, I'm in love with the wife too. I adore J.K. Rowling's writing, but I'm so scared stupidly, stupidly scared that, when she releases all this new material on the Harry Potter universe, everything I've been writing for the past three-and-a-half years will be rendered obsolete. Or worse, irrelevant.
And it wasn't just a hobby. It wasn't just a laugh. I poured my soul into that three-and-a-half years. I took a job that depressed me fifty-nine per cent of the time, just so that I could have a flexible schedule to allow for creative writing. (Don't mistake me; a job that depresses me fifty-nine per cent of the time is the best depression to non-depression ratio I've ever found in a job. The point is, I was supposed to keep looking

Writing a Six Word Story3wyl recently posted a SixWordStories journal asking members how they write their stories, and she has kindly allowed me this opportunity to talk in a little more detail about my particular writing process. This blog isn’t meant to be a tutorial or even suggestions as to how to write your own. It’s really just a chance for me to discuss a subject that’s become very important to me.Writing a Six Word Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, to start off with, I like to read other people’s work. It’s what I did before I ever began writing my own six word stories, and I still do it to inspire myself. Sometimes someone else’s story will directly lead to one of my own. (And then I credit story and author in my notes.) But generally it’s not as definite as that. Seeing what others are doing sparks off ideas and sends me in a fresh direction.
Prompts assist me a great deal as well. The m

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 DAZ3D1 year 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

Book Day CraftsApril 23rd is the international Book Day, and I thought it would be the perfect time for a theme feature! Book Day is meant to encourage people to read, write and enjoy books (in more recent years it also began raising awareness on copyright issues). Go ahead and read that book you always wanted to read, gift a book to a dear friend, donate old books to charity, or make book crafts I am always marveled at how creative all of you are, most of these aren't exactly books but art inspired by books, and are meant to be admired rather than read. Still, I think they're amazing and they show how important the love for books is. So here's some interesting book crafts I found, enjoy and feel free to share yours!

Collection: DollsCollection: Dolls6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
We give dolls to daughters that they might practice mothering and nurturing. But dolls often become surrogates for female angst and little girl social clique wars. Dolls can empower fantasies of future romance, or become twisted into voodoo charms by a desire for vengeance. As society becomes more reflective on childhood in our personal life growth, so too have artists developed the meanings of dolls along myriad lines of psychic inquiry.
European dolls were at first made to represent adults. It wasn't until the 1850’s that childlike dolls appeared.

[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1 to G2(Updated for new features in DS 4.6.2.)[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1 to G21 year 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.
