FINALLY… silly Poser…

I cropped it in Photoshop and added a signature as well. Here’s my final.

Mom always said not to stand there with the fridge door open for so long!  LOL

Some months I wind up with a creativity block which is disappointing since I think the monthly freebie challenges are both among the most useful contests here (free products...for free) and they put people on an even enough playing field that arguably even some vendors wouldn’t even feel like unbalanced entrants due to the limit on paid items.  It’s quite possible that the contest as a whole is suffering from a silent fallout over the site change.  Who knows.

Here’s the higher quality render of my entry.  Adjusted her hair slightly, I hope that’s okay.

PERLK, I don’t know what took you so long apart from Poser misbehaving—I never understand why people are willing to endure really long render times (unless there’s tons of trees)—but that ice surface is terrific, and it already looked terrific in your preliminary render!

That certainly applies to me. The forum hasn’t felt like home since the site change. It cut my interest by about a third.

I have had a huge artistic block for a while now.  Can’t seem to come up with an idea. I do agree with you Zamuel. we haven’t been the same since the new site change.

added both new renders to my 1-hour file. I’ll let Alexa and Kendall update the site, just never could figure out how to do it.

Yeah, it was only slightly higher pixels - I couldn’t get it to be the quality I wanted because it kept breaking on me!!!

Sorry.  I like it.  I normally comment when someone changes their avatar.  I’ve just been mostly lurking and generally depressed lately.  Sorry.

NAE Turf War - Revisited

The first one looked too empty.  Plus I found some awesome snow & ice shaders from Calida (DS only) in my runtime.

too bad you did that one second, but with the trees you might not have gotten it done in under an hour. they take forever even at low rez
