Artist | Hobbyist
Welcome to my little corner on DeviantArt. Thank you for the watches, faves, page views, downloads and llamas.

I experiment with XNALara Posing Studio and Blender for fun and share some results here (made possible by those who share knowledge and resources). Christie (Dead or Alive series) is my muse for the vast majority of my work.

I began with the intention of explaining how I create a picture so anyone can get started. I still do in a less obvious way though I have kept some technical information which could allow someone to replicate what I've submitted.

Over time I introduced a narrative of running a photography studio where characters are familiar but different. This is why there is nonsense here; central to this is 'the Fave crown saga'.

'Creation Chronology' acts as an artistic diary's contents page.
'About requests' (subject to revisions) is for reference about such things.
'Creative wish list' contains a myriad of things I want to do at some point.
I freely admit I have no clue what I'm doing, so I share my experience here in chronological order for those interested. No-one?  Oh well...

Creation Chronology acts as
 my artistic diary's contents page. Updated upon submissions and usually when I have completed new work; thus it's a link portal and hints at future submissions.

Note 1: Scrap work (bad renders, experimentation, occasional work in progress) is indicated with a * at the end of the title because 'WIP' takes up two more character spaces. Here I focus more on the creative shenanigans I'm up to as in my main gallery I've moved onto having a narrative for what I do.
Note 2: Requests are submitted exclusively to The Idea Box aka Requests folder. These will use the No.__ scheme. 
Note 3: Deliberate backlog to ensure steady flow of submissions.
Note 4: Current submission day: Friday.

Synopsis

"Do you take requests?"
Simple answer: no.
Long answer: if it interests me.

Introduction

My submissions conform to my interests which may (not) align with yours. Featured Gallery contains my regular work; Creation Chronology provides insight to future submissions; and Creative wish list provides insight to my creative interests and aims. My health means I am less likely to accept requests. The following is to clarify how I approach requests; you have been warned. 

Essential criteria

  1. DeviantArt policy
    1. Any request must conform to DA policy.
      • I read and understand the policy conservatively; i.e. I take a better safe than sorry approach.
      • 'Pornographic' material is restricted by DA (see vladen13's reference guide).
  2. Character(s)
    1. I like the character design and the outfit.
      • Just liking the character is insufficient.
    2. Character combinations are 'lore plausible' or coincides with my preferences.
  3. Theme
    1. I have a narrative theme in my current work.
      • Fitting this narrative makes it more likely for me to accept or attempt.
    2. I use nudity sparingly and usually self censor.
      • My creative interest in nudity is limited.
    3. With mature themes I aim for tasteful.
  4. Achievability
    1. Model(s) have to be in my possession.
      1. Downloaded models are in the various XPS folders in Faves.
      2. I do not intend to search for resources.
        • I cannot claim familiarity of all franchises.
        • Searching for something I am unfamiliar with is time consuming.
        • Working links may sway my decision.
      3. I intend to honour the conditions of use some model porters have.
      4. Model rigging varies.
        • Certain rigging makes posing difficult.
      5. I won't use models from companies who exhibit an aggressive IP protectionist stance.
    2. Provide details.
      1. Minimal requirement: character(s) and theme.
        • Vagueness allows me to explore my creativity and comfort levels.
          • Vague ideas can usually be adapted to suit my creative interests.
        • High levels of detail may make it closer to your conception
          • Increases difficultly and potentially off-putting.
        • Subject to my interpretation of provided details.
      2. Pose references can be considered for inspiration.
        • Images designated as stock are fine.
          • Still subject to conditions of use.
        • Direct copies or character swap of another Deviant's work will be avoided.
    3. It is within my skill set.
      • This should (hopefully) evolve over time.
      • I've encountered many unresolved issues during my usage of Blender. It's not all smooth going.

XPS or Blender?

The less work involved the easier it is to use Blender. My Methodology journal entry will give an idea of how involving the Blender process is. To use Blender the idea would ideally use models I've already prepared (Introducing... series, Prop:____ * and Setting:____ *), or be a model I will likely use again. There's little motivation for me to prepare a model for a one-off use if I'm not interested in it. And rendering in Blender can take hours depending on the complexity of a scene. Read the descriptions of various pieces for those details to see how long something can take.

If I'm happy enough with the XPS results then I will likely recreate it in Blender, however No.1 is over seven months in the making (at the time of writing). I'm fairly proud of this piece but I've encountered a lot of problems with it in Blender, and only sporadically have a look at it to find the solutions. Minor pose discrepancies between XPS and Blender may mean the Blender version comes out differently (compare Back to back: Christie and Christie' to Back to back: Christies *).

In essence, you could consider the XPS version as a work in progress. How long the Blender rendition will take though will depend on various factors which are unique to the intricacies of Blender. I may even change certain aspects between the two - No.4 still requires a satisfactory background which I intend to change if I ever see the right setting.

Response

My response to a request are as follows: 
  1. Accept: I am confident of doing it.
    • Passes policy, character, theme and achievability criteria.
  2. Attempt: I am not confident in completing it.
    • Passes policy, character and theme criteria; fails achievability criteria.
  3. No interest: I am not excited by the idea (at the present time).
    • Passes policy critieria; fails character or theme criteria; may (not) pass achievability criteria.
      • A possible back burner idea to be used in future, though not guaranteed.
  4. Reject: I am not interested.
    • Fails policy, and/or fails both character and theme criteria; may (not) pass achievability criteria.
  5. Planned: I have plans to do this.
    • Not a high priority;
    • may require additional resources not in my possession;
    • requires more skill than I currently possess.
  6. No response: I can't be bothered to reply.
    • You caught me at a bad time due to health issues.

Please understand the following

  • I choose my tools. Be aware of my use of XPS and Blender as noted above.
  • I don't create any resources. At most I can just about manage posing.
  • I don't have a time scale for completion if I accept.
    • I prioritise real life duties.
    • I frequently change what I do to avoid creative burn out and lack of interest.
  • This is a hobby I do for enjoyment.
    • I submit things I am happy to share.
    • I consider it a bonus when people express an interest in what I do (Fave, download, view and comment).
    • My lack of skill is not an indication of time and effort spent.
      • It does indicate a lack of intelligence....
  • Request via a Note and not a comment.
    • I may remind you to send a Note, but I won't chase you for it.

Conclusion

In summary: I accept requests if I like what is being requested, models are in my possession, and I think I can do it. Blender usage requires more time if I'm happy enough with it.

All this is to clarify my selectiveness. It is best to consider your idea as a suggestion: "Have you considered...?" rather than "I want to see..." I judge all ideas on their own merits.

By all means send a Note with details of your idea; the worst that can happen is I reject the idea.

Footnote
Revision 6
Revision 5
Revision 4
Revision 3
Revision 2
Revision 1
Waffle time! Though technically I suppose this is more a New Year's resolution thing even though it isn't the new year...

Character usage: Actually using them in a Blender scene.

  • Dead or AliveGen Fu, Mila
  • Soul Calibur: Taki
  • Street Fighter: Dan Hibiki, Ken, Ryu, Chun Li
  • Tekken: Anna Williams, Nina Williams
  • Virtua Fighter: Sarah Bryant

XPS techniques:

  • Mesh modding: still like to have a base model with my favourite outfits, or at the very least to have the hairstyles on one model.
  • Posing: better grasp of posing, especially the use of the 'control' bones to mitigate distorted joints, creating own poses or from reference, and making an acceptable kiss pose.
    • Think I'm starting to get to grips with using those control bones for some poses.

Blender techniques:

  • Linking and unlinking meshes to experiment with different shaders.
    • Fairly successful, though occasionally feels a bit hit-and-miss.
  • Mesh editing: combining dress meshes together to act as one in the physics engine (this is becoming a running joke). 
    • At long blooming last, I managed it! I think...
      • Nope. Still seems inconsistent at the best of times....
  • Node set ups: to explore more of how nodes work and to actually create my own. 
    • Experimenting with a Christie model for new look skin all on my own! 
      • That'll end badly....
        • Actually in using that new Principled BDSF shader it looks like even I can't completely mess it up....
  • Rigging: adding bones to give more fine control over posing for characters and lighting rig.
  • Posing: IK rigging.
    • Apparently it switches how bones react in the rigging, which sounds like a good thing to use.
  • Realism: either the use of soft body physics to make soft surfaces act with character models, or use of mesh editing techniques to deform the mesh to match the character model.
    • Soft body physics experiments have been hit and miss....
      • From RadiantEld's notes, the shrinkwrap modifier is a viable alternative.
        • Some limited success. 
  • Actually finishing the tutorial series by Andrew Price (Blender Guru) on Youtube...
    • Watched other related stuff; does that count?
  • Proportional editing: explore as an alternative to mesh sculpting.
    • Not going well at all....

Creating my own character!

  • Bit of a pipe dream this one, though it may depend how I go about it.
    • Came across a mention of a software called MakeHuman on a Deviation which I have yet to explore.

Ideas list:


Just lazy:
  • Back to back: Hayabusa and Hayate
    • actually, any canon pairing I have yet to tackle....
  • Hold me (yep, done this one!)
    • What are you doing?
      • We need to talk...
  • Oh, Kokoro....
  • Rule Britannia!
  • Nightmare on Elm Street homage

  • S(x): Grammar
  • S(x): Partners
  • S(x): Prop Department at work
  • S(x): Shale at work 3
  • Teaching Kurenai 
    • Tentative title.
  • Two can play at this game.

Lacking resources:
  • Chess
  • Darn it!

Vague idea not fully formed:
  • Bank robbery
  • Christie and Eliot
    • Had planned this a while ago, but their positions/pose was recently made by someone else.
      • Undecided on specifics. Saving for a special occasion (or the 'right' time).
  • Jurisdiction
  • "Look who we got!"
  • Mila training...
Miscellaneous.
