I'm not sorry at all that I am in the pursuit of beauty in my work.
I'm not going to stop for anyone. I do what I do, because I enjoy it.
For years all I built was big space marines and ww2 soldiers, no one ever once told me back then I should 'diversify' and 'do something else' no one ever hassled me either it's just pretty much accepted. Pretty girls though?
Well you know what, I call BULLSHIT.
If you look at my work and all you see is a sex-doll, that's your business not mine.
I never intended any of my girls to be this way. None. If you ask me about any of them, instead of taking them at face value like so many people do, you would discover that they all have intricate back stories, and all mean a great deal to me personally due to what was going on at the time in life etc.
Using image sequences as animated textures in MayaToday I've been working on importing image sequences as animated textures into Maya.Using image sequences as animated textures in Maya3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who've never done this before, Maya is not very good at working with animated textures, it's very fussy.
Before you start, you have to make sure that the image sequence is called image.###.ext where ### is the incrementing frame number. Then you create a file texture node, and load the first image, then tick "Use Image Sequence" in the file node.
The first thing you realise upon doing this, is that if your timeline extends before or after the first or last frame in your animated sequence, Maya throws a hissy fit and doesn't know what to do with it.
To get around this, I added an attribute to my object which I was going to animate a texture on, called "frameLength", where I stored the number of the last frame in my animated sequence.
I also added an attribute called "startFrame" which is the frame I want to start my animated texture on.
Then I created an expression so it didn

JUUHANNA'S ART-RAFFLE! [WINNERS]Hello everybody, and welcome to my art-raffle journal!JUUHANNA'S ART-RAFFLE! [WINNERS]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been thinking of different kinds of community-activities I could create or participate in, and this seems like it could be fun n easy.
In order to participate in the raffle, you have to do two things:
1. Add this journal to your favorites (so that you will have a number).
2. Leave a comment with a link to the character (or few alternative charas for me to choose from) you'd like me to draw if you're a lucky winner!
So fav+comment, and you're in!
The way it works is as follows:
Once the contest ends, I will use random number generator to get a number, and the person who has that number in the faves list will be the winner!
I will be making a colored portrait (shoulders up) for the winner!
As a bonus I will also generate a runner-up number, and the runner-up will get a port

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

IT'S CONTEST-TIME!Hey all!IT'S CONTEST-TIME!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's that time again - time for a little raffle!
The prize is relatively small this time; basically a line-art portrait of the character chosen by the winner... I might slap some basecolor onto it, or polish it a bit, but I really can't promise that as the time I have available for art has become really really seriously limited.
Also I will not give a set time when I'll be finished with it. It might take months, it might take weeks, or it might take hours. It depends so if you're the winner, please be patient and no rushing, k? I will finish it, but at my own pace.
[Edit] People, please note that the prize-art is lineart only, and will only show the neck, head, hair, ears, face, and possible horns/hat/head-gear or -accessories!
SO. On to the rules. There are two.
1. Fave this journal. Once I'm picking the winner I will use a random number-generator to create a number, then find the participant from the faves list with

I asked her if she gave permission for this or not, and sure enough, she didn't. I think it's safe to say that the rest of the $25 mats sold at the booth were also using stolen art, but I don't recognize any of the artists. Here are some photos of the booth and all the mats are also listed on their website https://www.hiddensupplies.com/index.php?routeroduct/category&path=71. Please take a look and report the images you recognize to the respective artists so that they may take the proper legal actions against these these people. Thank you!
What is Spec work?Lately its like a new virus, spreading, this so called contest, were people pick the winning one but they dont give you nothing in return, but they make money.

Correcty me if im wrong, people are going to send designs and designs that took months or years in preparations from schools, wasting money in materials, electricity, tablets, tears and blood, and in the end they wont receive anything just a palm in your shoulder saying good job.
Can you pay your bills with your tiny name at the end on credits? Forget about the publicity crappy excuse. People will get paid for this but the winner and contestants they wont.

Just because you have the ability to create a group; it doesn't mean you NEED to!
What is the point in creating a group that has no specific purpose when you're already on DevArt?!
"Oh, I'll create a group that will show any kind of photo"
Why create such a group when you can just hit "photography" on the DevArt front page?
"I'll create a group that'll display the work of anyone that wants to draw attention to their art"
Why create a group for that when it's already DevArt's PRIMARY PURPOSE?!

F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.
One dead console.My XBox 360 died last night.......again.One dead console.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was merrily replaying Modern Warfare 3 and was on the final mission when the screen went funky. Now, this happened 3 or 4 years ago, so I knew what was going to happen; I turned the console off in the hope that a reset would solve the funky-screen issue, but rather than a clear image - I get no image at all.
It's a known problem, especially with the first generation of 360 machines and as mine is a "Launch Team" version (If you worked for M$ at the time, they gave you a special edition one with green plating) it certainly falls into that category.
Something to do with the cheap, shoddy soldering used by M$.
Looks like I'll be better off just replacing it with one of the new streamline models, which is a shame, because last time I got my current one repaired I also had it pimped out with these awesome green internal running lights that made it look nuclear-powered or something

I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Tips for smooth clean line artHi,Tips for smooth clean line art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Is your line art shaky, wobbly, sloppy, fat, uneven or pixelated? The subject of clean line art comes up a lot so I've gathered together a number of tips from various DA members that may help you improve your line art. Some of the techniques described below may contradict other techniques described below so you may want to experiment and decide what works best for you. Most of these assume that you have a digital tablet. (Make sure your tablet drivers have been installed correctly. If your cursor is behaving erratically it may indicate a problem with your tablet or drivers.) Some posts have been edited for brevity or spelling:
"I developed my own technique. And it works quite well for me. It raised my Lineart cleanliness from 24% to 98%, yeah, really. Here is how I do it digitally when I'm not using a traditional sketch:
