So kinda sorta apology (well not) for what you all are about to be subjected to... What sometimes happens is that someone brings up a random thought, idea, statement, posts an image, and well things kinda trigger a thought for a 3d artwork. In this case :iconThe-Mighty-Spectra: and others have been bringing up cheese concepts... I still have to work on a cauldron of melted cheese for someone else... it was one of those things when 3-4 folks are talking about cheese. So I said what the hell... Cheese is interesting test. So I did a quick render as I had a rather decent cheese material from an awesome food related shader set... Well one would think it would of stopped there.... no... but :iconNorthernChill: was noting a lack of "cheese heads" minions... So I in the process of creating one as it was amusing, it morphed into ... well if there are Minions there needs to be a super villian or villaness ... I mean how is a minion to make ends meet right? So... I went there and made a
So as some folks were asking during the last couple of weeks. TFMC Nexus got a suspension notice during my hell weeks. I wasn't aware of it until just before my vacation. Frankly the last couple of years have been nuts it all started with my mother passing and my job also getting nutty (I started a new one), the last year specifically with COVID even crazier. There are a lot of things going on there with the Nexus, but frankly I don't have time for it and many of the folks involved also did not have time for it. Rather than continue to spend out of pocket for a site that is basically on life support. I've decided not to pursue it any further or any longer at this time. Perhaps it will rise again if I have more time and a dedicated team ... I suspect free sites in general just can't compete against paid sites that can pay the folks something to run with it. I'm in a different place now with the job and life and etc...
Well the vacation is winding down now. I will be back to work tomorrow, though working from home. I took this week to catch up on things and to sort of regenerate the creativity a bit. I work in a highly analytical focused job and that can short circuit things. It also has been an intense year or two, the last 3-4 months were intense through the holidays with the job. I am adapting to new responsibilities as the team grew, adding team members, and also juggling my own contributions/obligations as part of the team. Think things will settle down a bit as prior to the vacation I got the two major items that came up during the 3-4 months. We shall see. But I took this week to also test what I could do with Daz. I used Poser for years and figured a great many things out. I found that I can do a lot of things I did in Poser in DAZ. The only real issue I find is a lack of a morphing brush to do some particularly nifty things I used for poser. However, I am starting to pick up Blender to
Haven't decided where to do or what to do really. I have to revamp something or figure out where I am going to post... I'll start posting more here again... as ironically seems to be better about things than Patreon was/is.
