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

[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1 to G2(Updated for new features in DS 4.6.2.)[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1 to G22 years 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.
Here is that (lengthy) thread: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/24093/
Here's what I've been doing myself.
First of all, however: there are two ways to recreate a character. There is the easy wa

The winds whipped violently across the open desert plain, battering against the cracked, aged walls of an abandoned fuel station and diner. The building stood alone in the desolate wilderness, its walls covered in neon graffiti, its original paint sun-bleached and chipped. There was no sign of life visible from the outside of this place, which was rather ironically called "The Dead Pegasus".
Inside the shelter, though, things were entirely different. A vermilion-haired man bustled about excitedly, stringing up half-tangled yarn and slapping pieces of vibrant duct tape against the wall, anything to liven up the atmosphere. Christmas was on its way, and nothing could dampen this man's spirits; not even the cheapest, foulest half-cup of cold coffee, not even the lack of snow outside...not even Better Living. No, nothing could take this joy away from him. He

Where is art??Just saw a recent DD yesterday and was wondering. How did it get a DD and why not the mature tag? Now lets start from basics like in my last journal. What is art? Again a wide term which cannot be defined in a single word or two. But from a layman's definition, art is production or expression of something that has aesthetic sense. Lets go NO further and this makes my debate rather hard so it is fun.Where is art??3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So how do we define aesthetic sense or beauty? Simple: Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Now if we were to simply put forward everything that we think is beautiful is fine... until it has a negative impression on society. Putting aside a person for whom dead bodies huddled together is beauty. No, a person, say male... for whom the female body is beautiful. So the female body is art? yes it is! It is art of nature, or God (if you believe in Him).
Now what does happen when you post pics of this art in the most "beautiful" poses in public? "Oh

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 DAZ3D2 years 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
