1. Sebastien, about your start in digital art, do you had any troubles along the way?
As a self-taught artist, of course many troubles were encountered. First learning on your own and try to analyze what the others do in their work. Inspiration is good but try to get how they do such or such effect is much better. So I started documenting myself with high-quality tutorials and admirable artists to find out valuable tools, techniques and combine what I learnt with my own art. Getting feedbacks from other artists is almost vital in the very beginning, it could be difficult. I have to say that I had extreme chances to get feeback from very talented artist quite rapidly, (yes kind people exists giving without expecting anything in return...). it helps a lot and makes you grow.
2 . About Sci Fi, seems like is a passion. Do you always liked science fiction ?

Excellent Offsite Resources - Big Kind GovernmentCreating this journal in the hopes of providing artists with extra leads for high quality resources that might otherwise be ignored.

A list I hope you may help me to expand, with the understanding that government sources should always be credited if only as a matter of common courtesy to give credit where credit is due. And that everyone should read the fine print on any gover

How to Credit StockRecently I've seen a lot photo-manipulations where the resources used have been listed in a slightly slap-dash fashion. Things like "Resources by fuguestock" or simply pasting my icon at the bottom of the comments. Now I'm glad to be shown what artists have done with my photos, but I do ask in my guidelines (as do most stockists) that you paste a link to the image used in the comments. This is really quite important to me.How to Credit Stock7 months ago in Art Features More Like This

*My stock images are to be used for non-profit use only. If you would like to use an image for a piece you plan to sell or offer as a print you MUST contact me for approval; if I like your work I may possibly allow it, but I promise nothing. The more work you put in (in other words not just adding a few filters in PS) the more likely I'll grant permission.
*Give credit where credit is due and please post a link in a comment under an image you've used. I like to see what other people use my images to create, it's the whole point of my stock Please note that I may re-post your image on personal sites (i.e. FB) for my friends and family to view, but I will always credit you and the images will always be web sized only.

[Tutorial] G1G2 Clothing in Blender 1This tutorial series was requested by JooDoo. If you don't use Blender, feel free to skip this. Blender's interface is widely hated, but it's a free program with tons of features, and at the very least it's a great way to build your business until you can afford 3dCoat, Zbrush, or one of the more expensive suites. Blender can be profitably integrated with these others as well, especially when it is used to base model and UV map and they are used for sculpting and painting; but that's a discussion for another day.[Tutorial] G1G2 Clothing in Blender 11 year ago in Personal More Like This

KETO! I've recently made a lifestyle change. I'm one of those people who reddit too frequently. I stumbled upon /r/keto one day and I've been hooked since. I'm eleven days in and eight pounds lost so far. I'm hoping to lose a total of 30 pounds so I can fit into my old clothes! (yay). Unfortunately the last year has been a bit of a roller-coaster and I've gained a lot of weight But as I said, this is a lifestyle change for me, not a simple diet or fad that will fade. Something to help me stay healthy and give me more energy! Have any of you made any lifestyle changes recently? I'd love to hear about them!

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!Manip Academy6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

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

[Tutorial] G1G2 Clothing in Blender 3This text tutorial continues the series on creating clothing for Genesis 1 and 2 for DAZ Studio in Blender. Previous links:[Tutorial] G1G2 Clothing in Blender 31 year ago in Personal More Like This
In this tutorial we will explore texturing and, more specifically, using Blender to create sculpted displacement.
From Part 1 and 2 you should have:
-A UV-mapped mesh, with materials assigned, at a poly count between 16k and 100k polygons (less is okay, more is not); at this point you should have done your "base" sculpt and it should look basically like a piece of clothing, not a paper cutout overlying the body. Buttons, lacing, etc. should be finished and a permanent part of the clothing, and you should have done your base rigging in DAZ Studio and saved it to the library as a .duf using the File--Save As--Support Assets--Figure/Pr
[Tutorial] G1G2 Clothing in Blender 2Here is Part 1.[Tutorial] G1G2 Clothing in Blender 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
In Part 2 we'll take a look at some good practices for the mid-poly stage of your mesh, creating materials, and how to get your mesh over to DAZ Studio.
To recap, at this point in Blender you should have a low-poly base mesh that is UV Mapped. If it is tightly overlying the body from use of snap tools, use alt+s to scale it along the normals away from the body. If this doesn't seem to work right, Ctrl+N recalculates normals outward and should fix it.
Make sure you assign one or more materials.
You can create materials using the right-hand panel. Click the round ball icon (the orange one more to the right, not the blue one more to the left) and click the "+ New" button. Clicking on the word "Material" next to the orange ball in the dialog that appears will let you give it a name. If you want to add more than one, just click the plus si
