Not enough hours

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 25, 2015, 10:37 PM
updated: 8/25
currently: working on fight scene, working with Mudbox


With the boring life I usually lead, I never really thought I'd wish for more hours in a day. Now that I'm trying to make art more, learn new programs, and play some of the Steam games that I bought and never got around to playing, it's 1 AM and the cat has come out from behind the computer to bite me for sitting here too long.

Still working on the poses for that Smacky fight scene, in fact I'll have another edit to post later tonight (rghh, will I ever get it right?). I also spent a day and a half watching all of the basic tutorials for Mudbox, although I haven't seriously worked with it much yet. That is an excellent program and extremely user-intuitive - a piece of cake compared to Zbrush. It doesn't import DAZ figures all that easily though, which is my only complaint.

In working with Zbrush and Mudbox, I've discovered that the DAZ outfit that I depend on the most - the Briana Culaith set that Smacky wears - has modeling errors that make it impossible to edit in either program without some repair work that I do not know how to do. OF COURSE it's that outfit. I don't know what I'm going to do about it...maybe I can find someone who has it and knows Blender, Maya, or Modo well enough to fix it (since there's almost no chance of it being remade for new figures). PAs have got white female characters and their accompanying impractical wardrobes to make!   ;)


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) 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).

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You can download my seam guides and ancient outdated Poser freebies on my storage website at www.snowsultan.com.

Thanks for visiting!

The new Bethany 7 from DAZ resembles your female demons :)

Haha, Bethany might be a little bigger, but yes I'm glad to see a real curvy figure from them! Olympia was much more muscular than curvy, and Sickleyield's Big and Beautiful for G2F are more extreme. Dialing Bethany in at medium amounts should give a nice soft shape without the muscle tone that all other DAZ characters have.  :)
