    Hahah Too cute! :D 

    I'd love to join in, but I'm busy with promos. I'm looking forward to seeing what other people come with for the challenge though. :)

  • WOW!!!! You are doing promos????? Super hint there.

    That means you have something coming soon?!!!

    Where's your commercial thread breaking the news? Another hint. lol

    --------------------------

    So to understand this thread.....

    Daznites are supposed to take the letters/acronym 

    NVITWS

    and create a render that follows the letters' meaning as a theme.

    This is a serious challenge.

    Narcissistic Vicky in a teacup with spoon

    The model Vicky- is always a central character.

    Given it was partly my silly idea, I suppose I've got to get involved...

    I'll probably do something in the [Adjective] Vicky in [Noun] with [Different Noun] format later, but to start off, I've decided to do one where I don't treat I and W as "In" and "With". (And thus also assume the acronym doesn't have "A"s in it, but a) that's how it is in the thread title, and b) misinterpreting the acronym is the point anyway).

    So given that a while back I ironically called a robot character in the universe I'm creating "Viki Severn", you get...

    "Newfangled Vicky Impersonating The White Stripes".

    Needing inspiration? Pick a 4-digit number from 0000 to 9999. Take the word for N from the row with the first digit, the word for T from the second digit, etc. V is for Vickie, and there aren't very many suitable words starting with I.

    For any of you who are having difficulty thinking of a four digit number, just use your bank PIN.

    (Disclaimer: Do not actually use your bank PIN).

    Perhaps year of birth would work instead?  wink

    As this is a serious NVITWS challenge I'd like to be clear on the status of the two unmnemonicized missing As, since I always understood that the standard abbreviation* included the two As - i.e. NVIATWAS (Naked Vicki In A Temple With A Sword) ? So...

    1) Are the As optional ? E.g. would both "Necrotic Vicky In A Tomb With A Skeleton" and "Noisy Vicky Irritating Trolls While Singing" be acceptable ?
    2) Are the As allowed to be something other than the indefinite article ? E.g. would "Nervous Vicky Is Absolutely Terrified When Around Spinosauruseses" be okay ?

    Needless to say, I have at least three ideas. My fourth is "Norkle Vicky Iga Tweegoo Wamput Schlubbub! Hohohohoho!" (from the classic Slug Wars scene with Schlobber The Schlutt and Slave Vicky)

    *e.g. posts from 2012, 2014, etc.

    As a rule, in English, initialisms (no, it's not an abbreviation—or an acronym, for that matter) do not include indefinite articles, therefore the standard form is NVITWS.

    laugh Ah, the infamous 2006 court case that I'd never heard of !

    So that would rule out (2) "Nervous Vicky Is Absolutely Terrified When Around Spinosauruseses", but would allow both examples in (1). Correct ?

    And if I'm not mistaken, it would also allow indefinite articles anywhere, so things like "A New Vicky Is Truly A Wondrous Surprise" would be allowed ? Yes ?

    Hmmm   A quote from the Urban Dictionary, dated  January 13, 2005

    NVIATWAS

    Naked Vicki in a Temple With a Sword

    First found in the Bryce software user community on renderosity.com referring to the use of the Poser software (curiouslabs.com). A pejorative term for Poser produced artwork that uses stock 3D naked women (the default since you have to add clothes) ... in a Temple ... With a Sword. Something easy, unerotic, and pretending to be art.
    There are amazing artists in the Poser community, but the program's ubiquitousness has turned it into a class of creative anatomy for horny teens. God forbid I should stay away from a bit of nudity (or even a whole lot, actually), but that's beside the point. NVIATWAS!!! NVIATWAS!!! NVIATWAS!!!


    Having been a member of said Bryce Community before the Daz Forums arrived to house the current Daz Community I felt that as we, the Bryce Community, invented the term it needed one of us to make sure the term is correct.  

     

    And don't get me started on the MPP    (Magic Pink Pony)

  • OK, no MPP's. Would that rule out MRP's too? (Magic Rainbow Ponies?

    Am I the only one who remembers Dr Legume and the Magic Pink Pony.   There are actually still one or two MPP renders in the Rendo Galleries,  and you can find the archive of when Dr Legume was made Artist of the Month (March 2002) in a concerted attempt to break the hold the NVIATWAS crowd had on the Renderosity Gallery

    The first time I saw this "expression", was in this lawsuit thread, so I wasn't aware that there's also a second  form (it is NVITWS in the linked article).

    https://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/363606/any-updates-on-the-big-daz-lawsuit/p1

    Personally I think we should keep it like in 3dcheapskate's post:

    Damned, why did you write "ToS Permitting" sadwink 

  • MazhMazh Posts: 437

    And just to make it clear, I don't want to start a NVITWS vs. NVIATWAS war.

    Maybe we could agree that the original term is NVIATWS, but for the challenge keep it as described in my/ 3dcheapskate's earlier post...?

    Well here is my go at NVIATWAS, with two versions of the same scene.  The first is the overall photo shoot scene with Alex the photographer talking to Vicki the model.  The second is the photo.

    For whatever weight I've got from having a part in coming up with the idea in the first place, my interpretation would be it was born out of a thread about creativity and inspiration.
    If it causes people to come up with ideas they wouldn't have otherwise, I'll personally consider it a success regardless of which version of the acronym they've misinterpreted (particularly as deliberately getting it wrong is the whole point).

    For me at least, it's already sparked ideas and given me an excuse to use some assets I hadn't yet put to use. (I picked up the guitar and drums during the PC+ anniversary sale, but now they haven't just sat on my hard drive "just in case" I ever needed them).
