Another month has gone by and spring is drawing closer. With the changing seasons life gets busier, so I am a few days behind schedule with this post. Apologies.

I have been thinking it is time to try once again to have a contest here, but I am coming up empty for ideas. So I am asking you all to comment and tell me any ideas you have for a contest that you would like to participate in here. I would like to come up with something doable by the end of this month, so we can start on the first of April.

I wanted to share some of my own news: I finally finished my first ever full product for DAZ! Woot! It is available on Renderosity  www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/dp…
This is a huge set of high quality textures and Iray presets for RoboSpider www.daz3d.com/robospider

                          DP1 Rebels by Shadowhawk9973                               DP1 Special Editions Promo by Shadowhawk9973                               DP1 01 WhitePlastic Promo by Shadowhawk9973

I adore some of the older models and props, but they just don't look good in Iray or for larger renders. I have decided to work on a few at a time and see if I can't give some of these old favorites new life. Right now I am trying to decide which one will be my next pet project. :-)
If any of you have picked up on this texture set already, Thank you so much!! I would love to hear what you think of it, and I look forward to seeing your creations with it. Any of you that are just learning of it, have a look and tell me what you think. :-)

And now on to the amazing art!!

That is two votes for B&W :-) I think this is a good idea, one that we will definitely use some time in the near future.

Oh, that is an awesome idea, I hadn't thought of that. I should have, as much as I love B&W images. ;) (Wink) I will keep that in mind, we will use it at some point for sure. Thank you!

Thanks for the feature there. I didn't expect it but I really appreciate it.

Those textures look awesome. They are in my wishlist.

If you are looking for ideas, may I humbly request: www.daz3d.com/dystopia-destina…

Thank you! I look forward to seeing what you create when you get themLa la la la 

An interesting challenge. I will put that one in my list. I don't actually own that set yet, and recent sales broke the bank lol. But i will definitely get it as soon as I can and look into weather or not I am allowed to do it.

I've had it for years. It was an awesome grunge sci-fi bar. I don't know how to texture or I'd try it myself.

I am still trying to find out if I would be allowed to do a texture set for it or not. I did go ahead and pick it up and I played with the surfaces on it a little bit last night. It is definitely not a DAZ friendly set, but I managed to change things up and make it look pretty good in daz with just shaders and some settings changes. If it turns out I am allowed to do textures for it I will, if not I may be able to help you figure out how to make it look the way you want it to. :-)

Awesome! It's a very cool set. I remember doing some images years ago with it.

I would love to be your Padawan if you would be so kind as to help me grow and be able to change the textures. :) I'll keep my fingers crossed that you will be able to do something for it.

Keeping my fingers crossed too. I am glad to help you as much as I can. Texturing is a lot of work, but sometimes to get the look we need it is as simple as changing some settings. :-)

I hope it doesn't end up to be a costly purchase for you. That's not a cheap item.
