3d Tutorial: Model A Twisted Torus W/ Holes 3dsmaxHi, everyone. This weekend, I'll be posting several tutorial videos, focusing on modeling interesting shapes in 3dsmax, and also Blender. This first tutorial will illustrate how to create the torus shape shown above, in 3dsmax. Advanced users may be able to follow along in Blender, but there are some tools in this tutorial which will be specific to 3dsmax 2010 or higher. Enjoy, and feel free to leave a comment, or question, if there was something here which isn't clear. This video contains full audio narration. I finally got my mic fixed.3d Tutorial: Model A Twisted Torus W/ Holes 3dsmax2 months ago in Personal More Like This
3D Tutorial: Modeling a Italian Coffee PotIn this video, we begin modeling a detailed, high poly Italian Moka Coffee Pot in sub-D. This video will demonstrate some very simple techniques to achieving some tricky hard surface shape blending, and subdivision in a linear modeling workflow. You can follow along without reference, or download your own reference material from Google, by typing "Italian Moka Pot" as the search term.3D Tutorial: Modeling a Italian Coffee Pot8 months ago in Personal More Like This
The techniques used here are basic polygon modeling procedures, which could also be applicable to users in other polygon-based software, like Maya or Blender. I will post post the continuation in the next few days. Thanks to airflamesred for the idea to do this tutorial.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed this video, and please don't forget to subscribe! Thanks.
Freebie Preview - Realistic Folding ChairHi, everyone. I'd like to share some previews of a free model I plan to release later today: A highly detailed metal folding chair, to be made available in both the open and closed (folded) version; complete with high resolution (4096x4096px) PBR textures. I'm providing a "worn" look as you can see from the previews, because a clean look should be very easy to accomplish procedurally if you need it. Here's several shots of the model(s), created using the same maps which will accompany the objects, rendered with a physically-based, real-time render engine.Freebie Preview - Realistic Folding Chair1 month ago in Personal More Like This
And here are the wireframe shots, showing the topology. The polycount will be relatively low, and the product should be manageable in most real-time or game engines, as well as high quality, pre-calculated renderers.
Let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or requests. I'm creating the pre-calc promo renders for the freebie with the Corona renderer, then it should be ready for distribution

Drell female officially revealed - Irikah Krios in ME Foundation
Do you remember lieutenant Abrudas from ME:Evolution comic? Yes, that was the first Turian female even shown during the cycle of Mass Effect trilogy.
And now a preview of a new issue of ME: Foundation #12 has appeared... and inside... First official appearance of a Drell Female.
This time they showed Thane's wife that is known to the players through Thane's tales about his past.
So for the time being I'll upload the screens from the preview:
What do you think?
Abrudas was shown several months before Omeda DLC and the official design for Turian females didn't stray far from the comic version.
Maybe that means ME4 will have Drell Females. Who knows. If so, they probably will be similar to Irikah.

More and more Universities, libraries and arts institutions have swung open their digital doors and granted access to their lectures, courses and curricula free of charge to anyone in the world with a connection to the web.

My apologies for my extended absence. I had to share this discovery with all, as it's just AMAZING. When I have enough moneys to upgrade my PC AND buy ME3, I will have this too.
You probably all knew about this already, as I am not known for delving into the fandom, but anyway. YAY MODS!
I will shortly be relocating, AGAIN, and will as such have approximately 2 hours more free time per day, which equates to 10 hours more energy on weekends, which hopefully means moar comics, but I do keep on promising this and never quite getting there, and so I understand if you a) don't care or b) think 'pfff, that's what she said last year'.
I WILL TRY.
You are all amazing, and you rock.
Over. No. Out. No, over... OUT!
I should go.

Happy holidaysHey guys.Happy holidays4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's been quite a while since the last update.
As I've gotten quite the number of concerned messages over time, I wanted to let you know that I'm still alive. I'm doing okay, as far as my current health situation allows it.
As far as my creative process goes, I'm doing great. I've been experimenting with various art types and painting styles, and it feels like that alone already allows for more freedom of expression.
It might probably be another while before I regain the time, confidence, and (mainly) energy to frequently update, reply, and share with the world again. But I hope you'll be able to bear with that.
To those that sticked around for so long...
I wish you happy holidays and all the best for 2015.
May your artistic ability's (and all life quality's) far exceed those of 2014.

Rumo - Jetzt auch eine GedichtformWarnung: Dieser Journal Entry ist nicht nur leicht bescheuert, sondern hat definitiv auch den humorvollen Beigeschmack von gesundem Größenwahnsinn.Rumo - Jetzt auch eine Gedichtform7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Eventuell ist es ein paar von euch ja bereits aufgefallen, dass ich sehr gerne in einer bestimmten Form dichte.
Diese Form nenne ich nun 'Rumo', da ich keinen 'offiziellen' Namen für diese Form gefunden habe.
So wie es Sonette, Haikus, Stanzen und Oden gibt, gibt es also jetzt auch 'Rumos'.
Aber was ist ein 'Rumo' genau?
Eine Gedichtform, die sich folgendermaßen zusammensetzt:
-Vier Strophen, die aus jeweils zwei Versen bestehen
-Die Verse sind im Paarreim gereimt
-Die Verse halten einen streng alternierenden vierhebeigen Jambus ein
-Die Kadenzen sind zur Hälfte männlich und zur Hälfte Weiblich.
-Die Verse neigen oft zum Reihungsstil.
Ich finde diese Gedichtform sehr schön, da man gewzungen ist, seine Aussage auf recht wenig Raum auszudrücken.
Die Verse sind kurz und aussagekr&

Yesterday I got that I was a "narcissist", that I was "self absorbed" and a "control freak."
Now I wake up to hear from a friend that I'm a "pervert" and that I "abuse young women for my jollies" and that my photography is "lowbrow, cheap titty shots." Then when i said something about how awful I thought a man was being to his wife, I was told that "you don't have any room to talk .."
Okay, I never claimed to be a high end art photographer. And I'm probably a shitty husband. But I'm feeling a bit piled on this week.

Well to be exact I couldn't because I made the promise to go never on DA or any social network again. The reason for this was that I was very addicted to DA and making art. Up until a point that I neglected my parents and friends in real life and having Asperger didn't improve the situation either.
So in march of this year I decided to fight that addiction.Luckily I wasnt alone in that fight. And with help of many friends I decided to go cold-turkey. Which meant not to go online on any social network for 5 months and working on myself.
Doing this was very difficult because it felt like I abandoned all my watchers and groups. But in the end it was worth it (for me). I finally saw the whole picture of what internet was doing to me and in a sense this entire planet (might be different for other people but I beg to differ). So I started to ask questions....

dA changing to a porn site really annoys meHello dear watchers and everyone new.dA changing to a porn site really annoys me11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Today I want to talk with you about a serious matter.
It's regarding pornographic content on DeviantArt so please stop reading here if you're underage or don't wish to read about this kind of thematic.
For a while now I’ve been bothered by the huge amount of pornographic images here on dA.
I want to clear one thing first. I understand very well that nudity can be artistic and that a human body can be a piece of art. However only because it can be, it doesn't mean that you can use it as an excuse all the time.
I'm embarrassed to tell my parents that I’m selling my art here on dA,i'm embarrassed to tell my friends that I admire artist that work on dA. Why? Because if I will mention this site they will spare it a visit, browse and probably see many such explicit images.
I can’t even browse deviantart in college because of those images. I once even got removed from the network because dA was identified as a sex site.
