Apologies to all of the lovely people who commented on my stuff and sent me lovely messages in my absence over the year. I made a comment in the Daz forums that I disappeared due to having a baby and it took me a long time to get back into the swing of things (and it's still really, really hard). I'm also in the process of moving right now so although I'm working on things, everything is disrupted again.
I should mention that in that time I also played lots of games and tearing myself away from gaming and other hobbies to get back into Daz is really hard. I find it hard to get that "excitement" back for it again. It's back well and truly now
I hate journals but I also hate seeing old journal entries :p
I've had the time recently to get back into making characters so we'll see what happens! I plan to make a (hopefully) healthy selection of stupidly gorgeous, ordinary and ugly characters!
1: Just released a new character at Daz! Finally! You can see him here! Rhys for Genesis 3 Male
Rhys is a teen character so I couldn't include genital texture maps. If anyone wants a tutorial on adding genitals in post-work, I'd be happy to oblige. Any future adult characters that I make (for Genesis 3 figures) will have genital maps.
2: I have a girl in testing at Daz at the moment,
Started playing with Iray (and Daz again) about 2-3 weeks ago, having been scared to try Iray because I thought it would break the computer (old laptop) but holy crap, it's so fast and easy. I did purchase some Dimension Theory products because I'm lazy and like click and go lighting. >_> And with HDR's from HDRLabs, it's awesome. I've never been particularly gifted with unbiased rendering though but I can get much nicer results faster than I can in Reality/Luxrender, but that's more due to my computer, not the program. Anywho...
Finishing up a freckled skin/character for Genesis 2 Female (that I started last year :p)
