I agree I do tend to get upset when people refer to 3D models figures as “Dolls” It so demeans what serious artists are trying to do with DS and Poser.
Some people may use them as 3D dolls, doesn’t mean that all of us do.
I have only ever rendered one NVIATWAS, and that was a complete P taking render, and I have been using Poser since P3. Normally I use figures as an integral part of an image, as do artists who work with physical media.
I still call it all toys.
I have building blocks, modelling clay and mechano sets as well as dolls in my computer.
if I could afford dearer toys like 3dsMax, Maya, C4D and maybe CS6 I would still play with them the same.
sometimes I have played with oil paints and boar bristle brushes on bit of canvas stretched over a wooden frame.
or a bit of dirt that goes in a kiln afterwards
Chohole, could you possibly move my eyeshine tutorial thread to the artzone? It’s lost in the mass spread out commons threads. A link to it is in my banner It’s my only method to finding it. Either that or I just make a straight to the point version with all the tutorial details in a fresh thread.
Currently, my PC shows this JPG avatar… Which is the updated one, with various improvements… Most noticeably the shaders have been refined. and the bloodline logo is behind him. I cant get PNG to show it. Is this the one you see?
