I updated and added new stuff on: March 9th 2014
before I started doing my own art, I was an avid incredimail email- stationary creator.
(All legal always with freeware, according to terms, with written permission etc)
For that reason I have collected a massive bunch of pages with stockphotos (free for profit reasons)
free & shareware fonts, plugin pages and so on.
I thought that it might be as useful for creating art for some of you.
The quality and resolution of the images varies so check yourself
I met several people who don't know much free stock outside dA..

[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 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
In Part 1 we'll start with a discussion of setting up your first scene and creating a good low-res base topology.
A pictorial supplement can be found here.
Latest version of Blender (2.69 as of this writing); 64 bit is pretty much mandatory for sculpting, and if you have a 32 bit system you may not be ready to start really working in 3D.

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. This was updated last on 7/1/2015 to reflect a common question I get via note and comments on Iray and Poser.
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.

[Tutorial] G1G2 Clothing in Blender 2Here is Part 1.[Tutorial] G1G2 Clothing in Blender 22 years 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
[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 32 years 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 5Part 1[Tutorial] G1G2 Clothing in Blender 52 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this section we'll talk about creating custom icons and morphs.
From Parts 1 through 4 you should have:
-A textured and rigged clothing item with materials set up that use your diffuse, bump, and high-resolution displacement maps. It should already be saved to your People/Genesis or Genesis 2 Male or Female/Clothing/YourName/Your Item folder, and there should already be a Your Item/Materials folder with at least one material in it.
-A good handle on edit mode and sculpting meshes in Blender. I will cover some commands, but not basic navigation

Time for a new journal I believe. I have slowly been posting photos from my trip, trying to pick ones that may be of interest to some of you. I hope you like what I posted so far.
Some of them relate to a project I may do in the future, maybe next year. It will be Godzilla at Hanuma Bay.
Here are some photos about it:
I want to invite any Photo Editors to use the Hanuma Bay photos and one of my godzilla models in my gallery to make a kaiju Manip which I will feature in a future journal.
Now, about Groups.
I have been in many groups. I think groups should be about community and sharing art.
I recently joined a group and promptly left it. It was a photography group, I found it because it requested one of my photos, so I joined and contributed another photo. But, it would only allow one
How To Do A Quality Female Pinup In 3DelightI'm not going to give a "bad" example, because a lot of people who do terrible pinups are enthusiastic hobbyists, and there's no reason to hurt their feelings when they're really not trying to do this professionally. Still, one can always do better. The reason I'm going to talk about this is that pinups are a perennial visual topic in our medium, and one that is very often done very badly.How To Do A Quality Female Pinup In 3Delight1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not saying this because I'm a heterosexual female, and not especially girly or fem myself; the human female body as an artistic subject is not offensive to me, nor is the fact that men like to look at pictures of sexy women. I like to look at sexy men, so as far as I'm concerned, all's fair. Here's me doing a male pinup and here's how I did it<

Morph Transfer Options Added to DS 462That's DAZ Studio 4.6.2, the latest version as of this writing.Morph Transfer Options Added to DS 4622 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you transfer morphs with Transfer Utility, you might previously have noticed that you have no option to only transfer SOME morphs. This can particularly be annoying with Genesis morphs, where you end up transferring hundreds and then have to sort out and save to library just the one you want.
Well, the newest version of DAZ Studio has an additional feature to help with this.
In the Parameters tab, when you've found the dial for a particular morph, right-click on it. One of your options is "Favorites." Hover over that and you can choose "Add Selected Properties to Favorites."
On most items, all morphs are not favorited by default, including Genesis. Mark just the morph or morphs you want to transfer as favorites in the manner described.
Now when you start Transfer Utility, uncheck everything but the "Morph Targets" option. You need to have the "Show Options" button checked to expand that par
