Smacky Fanart and Commissions

Random Favourites

Showing all you create

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 5, 2016, 3:21 PM
updated: 2/5
currently: kind of bored


Let's leave the unpleasantness of the last few journals behind and talk about artistic stuff again.  :)

- Do you post most or all of the art that you create? I get frustrated sometimes because I feel that I have to post everything I make (other than very rough texture or lighting tests), and the pressure to make everything as good or better than the last image I made can be stifling. I know that's all in my own head, but it's almost impossible for me to just make art for something to do. If you feel this way too, or if you hardly ever post anything that you make, I'd enjoy hearing your reasons.


* RANDOM DAZ STUDIO TIP
Some of you might have already discovered this on your own, but I just found out yesterday that you can drag and drop textures directly from Windows Explorer (and I assume on a Mac's too) to the drop-down arrows in your Surfaces panel to apply textures to objects or figures without having to search for them in the dialogue boxes.



I have an idea for a new Smacky pic that I will start on soon. Thanks as always for stopping by!

(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) www.daz3d.com/i/3d-models/-/an…. My Battle Bonanza poses are no longer available at Renderosity (they went into clearance and no one bought them for a month, aww).

You can download my seam guides and ancient outdated Poser freebies on my storage website at www.snowsultan.com.

Thanks for visiting!

Hi there !

 I would like to ask you, do you think it's possible to have a thinner back loincloth with using alphas fo this product ? www.daz3d.com/the-warrior-prin…
It would really look like the outfit I need if it wasn't so back-covering :D

I think I have that, let me take a look at it and I'll let you know. Do you want to shorten the back loincloth, hide it completely, or make it partially transparent?

Shorten I can do, the parts are hidable, but it's too large horizontally, I would need it not more large than front part :( My husband found to hide the shoulder things, but we're not sure how to proceed with the loincloth. I bought this product years ago and only realize now how much it looks like Tyra's outfit with the right leathet texture !

From what I can tell, you can reduce the width by painting an opacity map. You'll have to pay attention to where the two halves connect (I assume down the center of the back?), and just paint black over the left and right sides on a new layer (if you have a paint program with layers), then put a completely white layer under it (but above the texture itself) and save it separately as an opacity map. If you want me to try, I can after I finish my current image.

I actually think I used that outfit in the Tyra 3D render I did for you a long time ago, haha.   :)
