Iray Surfaces And What They MeanI've updated and corrected this article based on DAZ's documentation. You should read that if you want more information. This will continue to be more of a "plain talk" breakdown.Iray Surfaces And What They Mean7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Let us begin with the different types of shaders from the "Base Mixing" dropdown at the top. Choosing one of these will hide or gray out some options and reveal others.
The Iray shader behaves as though it has three layers: The "base" layer, the "metallic flakes" layer on top of that, and the "top coat layer" on top of that. It is possible to turn off the top two layers and not use their settings, but the ability to use them is a property this shader has that 3Delight did not. This makes using shaders made for Iray very important when rendering to get the best look in Iray!

What Spyro's Kingdom WasWe finally have visual of what the first game concept of what Spyro's Kingdom looked like.What Spyro's Kingdom Was3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently, this game was originally going to be a MMORPG, in the Legend of Spyro-themed universe. The Portal of Power is mentioned, and we were going to have to use toys to play as our dragon characters in the game world. And just like Spyro's Universe, we customize our lairs. This game idea was proposed to Activision, but it was rejected.

Después de una extenuante semana de trabajo puedo levantarme esta mañana de sábado a tomarme una taza de café de manera tranquila y serena. Por lo que aprovechando que estoy medianamente contento, me dispongo a escribir a cerca de las cosas que me molesta que pasen como artista.
Por razones de pereza (Sui generis) me abstendré de explicar la lógica de lo anteriormente dicho.
El orden no es importante, aparecen conforme se me han ocurrido.
1. Cuando dices que pintas/dibujas, piensen que lo que haces son frutas y paisajes. Algunas personas creen que el arte es solamente bodegones y cabañas en bosques de arboles felices.
2. Las personas que no saben hacer una crítica. Típico de aqui y de otros lados, que se piensan que hacer una critica es bombardearte de observaciones de los errores más obvios y dejar de lado los aciertos en tu trabajo.

Giveaway, art contest and beta reader!Hey everyone!Giveaway, art contest and beta reader!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It have been a while since last contest or giveaway now, and the reason for this is the exams I have had lately. I`m finaly finished with them, and they did go very well! But thats the reason for the low activity the last 1-2 months.
Ok, first of, I am planing a giveaway this moment, and I hope to get it started within the next days! And when it have been this long since last one, it need to be big!
Normaly I give around 50 to around 10-20 winners. This time I think I will give 100 to around 20 winners, or 50 to around 40. I also plan to give away a free premium in the same giveaway, but its still under planing.
If you got any ideas for the giveaway, like how it should be done, or what prices I should have, be sure to comment below! If someone wants to take part in the giveaway as donator, be sure to contact me!
What is the fun without a art contest? I dont know.

My key reasons relate to the fact that Marz and I will be moving in together very soon, and priorities must be put in order. Cosplay should not be a priority at the moment.
Other reasons relate to the fact that I feel what used to be a safe haven and great source of enjoyment for me has turned into me watching my back and keeping people at arm's length. I've learned that the cosplay world is a dangerous one, especially if you become even remotely known for your cosplays. Why is it dangerous to dress up like a cartoon character? I have no fucking idea, but it is. Cosplay attracts a lot of insecure and malicious people, it seems, and I am victim to this. Sure, I said and did some things in the past which didn't paint such a pretty picture of me, but my past is in the past, and my issues with people are MY ISSUES alone, and they never have anything to do with something as petty as

Cosplay Photoshoot EtiquetteMy good friend hikaraseru has written a very good guide on how a standard cosplay photoshoot should be conducted in a conducive manner. I got her permission to post the entire article up, so hope you guys like what she is presenting to us.Cosplay Photoshoot Etiquette4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur

Understanding your camera's exposure settingsIn this post I’ll be discussing Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. The three camera settings that control “exposure” – the brightness of your photo.Understanding your camera's exposure settings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are three settings on your camera that control exposure: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO.
The Aperture is the thing that opens when you press the shutter button on your camera. The ‘aperture setting’ determines how big the opening will be. It's measured in f-stops. The smaller the f-stop number the larger the opening, and hence the more light that gets in.
The Shutter Speed determines how long the aperture stays open. Shutter speed is measured in fractions of a second. The faster the shutter, the less light that gets in.
The ISO setting determines the camera’s sensitivity to light. Think of it as a light amplifier. The higher the ISO, the brighter the image.
In most cases you will want fast shutter speeds (to eliminate blur), low ISO (to reduce noise), and an appropriate aperture setting to g

Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)
