Music, a fast question.. does it has to be handicapepd people, or could it also be animals? Better to ask before I start to think and look if I am able to try it out.

I do love the theme, and I am grumbling loudly that I am not able to model stuff myself, or I would have had a great idea *smiles*

A handicapped animal?...hmmm…I’d love to see that! Yes you can do that.

I see what I can come up with, I have a few ideas (having cared for strays a few times, so seen a lot of handicapped animals that still lived life as it should be lived)

BWSman’s very last post in this challenge, two days before his passing:

http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/23063/P180/#357561

Aw, man - that was him accepting my June entry…

I don’t normally do this two months in a row, and if somebody else steps up to the plate, I’ll yield the spot, but… it’s for BWSman. I’ll judge next month as well if you need me.

I would love to have you as a judge…accepted.

I can judge next month too Music. I will be going on a cruise in the middle of the month, for a week, so I will not have computer access. I love you guys but at $2.50 a minute for internet access even love can’t overcome that steep of cost.

Yes, I agree…I would love to have you as a judge…accepted!

Now…I have something for you…check your PM box!

... NOTICE ...

Well half this month is gone already and we still do not have a host for next month. SO, I will volunteer to host it.

BWSman was suppost to host it, he claimed it, but he will not be able to do that. So, since it was to be HIS month, I would like to do a BWSman tribute theme. As most of you now know, B lost both his legs within a few years, BUT he was NOT handicapped. He refused to let it get him down and carried on with his life as normal. His strength and courage was an inspiration for us all. His respect for life and his help he offered those in need pushed his ability to be a humaniterian off the charts. He will always be a hero in my book.

In his honor, The theme will be “Handicapped, but NOT!” and you must show folks with handicaps helping, playing, having fun, and just enjoying life as they know it. There are lots of freebies for this out there.

I am sure B would have liked the idea, because THAT was the kinda guy he was.

In one contest month a few years ago, B won a prize from me I had made. He expressed how much he loved this prize and he used it in many renders. In his honor, I would like to donate a copy of this prize to all who enter with respect to B. It is a guitar I modeled where I took the two most famous brands of guitars, Gibson (Les Paul) and Fender (Stratocaster), and made one guitar out of them. I call it a “Gibder StratOPaul” and B just loved it. So all who enter the challenge will get a copy. I hope you will all join in and enter something for B. I will NOT bend any rules though because THAT was B’s “bur under his saddle” as he put it, so be sure to obide by them.

I think it will be a lot of fun and good memories to share, so please come one, come all next month.

Thanks for the comments on the fairy garden pix.

I really enjoyed pulling it all together. It was five separate scenes—the fairy garden set up, then the larger garden, then the kid character, then the fishing Kelm, and finally the partying Kali/Kelm—merged into one for rendering. I always find it a lot easier to build these bigger scenes piecemeal.

The bushes on the bigger garden scene disappeared when I brought in the Snow Globe scene—still all “?!?!” about that—but I found them again.

I probably should’ve done all the Kali/Kelm figures as separate scenes. It would’ve made it easier to pose those tiny wings. o.O

Wish I could find the link to the log house. I’m pretty sure I didn’t download it all that long ago. I also forgot one link, a pose from a set I used on the kid: Lost Things K4 Poses - http://www.ShareCG.com/v/54851/view/11/Poser/Little-Lost-Things-poses-for-K4\Kids4

I was careful not to have a sun show up in the sky dome; that’s a cloud looking like a sun because of the reflection on the glass. But I admit I suck at making my own outdoor lighting, even after all this time.

The glass initially had refraction, but it distorted the view of several freebies and so I got rid of it. I know realism is important to some folks, but it isn’t really my thing.

I love that Bed Tree prop; so glad I could finally use it for something.

jeeperz, good luck with the surgery and may you have a quick and easy recovery. (I’m needle-phobic and have an irrational fear of doctors and dentists, so I would not be dealing with such things as calmly as you are.)
