Grab bag: DFO, Substance Painter

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 26, 2015, 6:00 PM
updated: 3/26
currently: learning Substance Painter

Just random ramblings today...

First of all, are they nuts?? Even if the vendor didn't realize that's a really bad idea, what's the matter with Renderosity allowing that in the Marketplace?

Dungeon Fighter Online is back, and I'm really enjoying playing it again. I was among the very first beta testers (a "Trailblazer") for it's original release (before Nexon ruined it), then joined again when it came back once again (and was shut down again), and now it's back with a very attentive staff and much of the new content from the Korean version. If you've never heard of it, it's an old-school style beat-em-up (like Streets of Rage or King of Dragons) but as an MMO, and you can use a pad emulator like Xpadder or Pinnacle to play it with a controller. Now I have to put Skyrim on hold again while I get my full-support Crusader back up to level 70.   ;)

I spent a few days learning Blender's interface and basic controls (not as hard as I thought), but then I heard about a Substance Painter update and started looking more into that. 1.3 was a great update, and now I want to spend some time learning it instead.  :)   Iray users may want to look into it as well, as it natively creates texture maps using PBR (so you'll get Roughness and Metallic maps instead of trying to figure out what Specular values to use). It makes me a little more motived to give Iray another chance once Studio 4.8 is out of beta.

I'm probably going to have to do a lot of experimenting and fairly simple images for a while as I try to learn Substance Painter and Iray, but hopefully they can lead to better images. Still on the fence about Iray, but there's no downside to trying to improve textures.

Thanks as always for visiting!

(yes that is my arm above. Despite making a black original character, I am very, very white). ;)

I am a volunteer English tutor for Japanese university students, and I make 3D renders using DAZ's figures and software. I'm mostly known for making seam guides (colored texture templates) for 3D figures, fantasy battle renders with my original character "Smacky", my old tutorials (like Z-Tooning) and freebies, and for my past fights with fanatical, hypocritical, whining DAZ-hating dumbasses on various 3D community forums. You can find my one commercial product at DAZ3D (Animeyes)…. My Battle Bonanza poses are no longer available at Renderosity (they went into clearance and no one bought them for a month, aww).

I use DAZ Studio 4.7 for all the 3D figure and object arrangement, Photoshop CC for postwork, and After Effects CC for animation.

You can download my seam guides and ancient outdated Poser freebies on my storage website at

Thanks for visiting!

Your friend made that? I had faved the early WIP version here on deviantArt.  :)   It's a bit too pricey for me but it's a great looking piece!
