    Another bookcase? I need another house! 'Course all my stuff is of the historical non-fiction nature... Well, with that being said, I'm finally getting around to posting something. Work has been eating me alive (60 hours a week anybody?) and I thought I'd never get this done!

    Yikes on that work week.  Glad you found some time to come out and play.

     

    Beer Zombies.  Could there be anything more terrifiying?

    Empathise on the 60 hour weeks.  Losing that was one of the best things about being made redundant, and there were really only 2 good things about redundancy. No more 60 hour weeks and no more 5:30am starts.

    Yikes indeed!  Neither the 60 hour week or the 5:30 AM start sounds good at all!  I can't even get out of bed by 6:00... at least not willingly!  (note:  I did NOT specify AM or PM!  cheeky)

    I was a Contract Services manager in my last job, and if you want cleaners on the job and working at 5:30 am, then you need to be there to make sure that they are in and doing their jobs. Plus I had a lot of full time staff as well, who worked more normal hours, so that is why the 60 hour weeks.

  • Awesome new entries guys!

    As for books, I have quite a few of Eddings, and I have to start replacing my Fiest books sadly, might just go ahead and get those in digital format though. Right now, I'm trying to finish The Dresden Files.

    I've read the first 5 books, haven't had the chance to start Blood Rites yet. 
    My aunt gave me the first two omnibus volumes and I pretty much tore through them.

    If you enjoyed the first 5 you will love the rest.  Jim only gets better with each book he writes.  He also has some short stories which take place between the main books and help fill in missing info but are not necessary to enjoy the series.

    Halloween Trolls
    Once a year young Danny Hill's father and grandmother take him into town to go trick-or-treating. Instead of being scared people say things like "nice costumes!" Danny is always both happy and confused, and always asks his grandmother why this only happens once a year.

    Mareiah's Wood Shaders were used on the stool; they were a DAZ Christmas freebie that seems to have gone AWOL, alas.

    There's a couple items on the dancers that are too blurry or obscured to count towards my freebie tally: LA3D's Cory skin*; Seisui's Laques Hair (only item in the third row down); Syltermermaid's Yoko skin*; and Outoftouch's Flexy hair, a freebie which also seems to have vanished. *sadness*

    My pre-postwork version. I have done some pretty extensive postwork on this one to get the mood I wanted, and from the rules-change thread I know some people find postwork very worrying and intimidating. I used to, too! So I wanted to break down the tricks I used and maybe help folks see you don't need to be a "Photoshop wizard" to do postwork. Apologies in advance for the essay.

    Multipass Lighting

    I am not good at getting lights in Daz to do what I want, and the more lights, the worse off I am. Fixing it in postwork can be tedious but in the long run it's saved me a lot of time, frustration, and rerenders. 

    To do multipass lighting:

    1) Turn all the lights off in your scene but one.

    2) Render and save.

    3) Turn the light you just rendered off; turn the next one on. Repeat until you have a render for each light.

    4) In GIMP (which is free, for those who don't know!), load all the renders into a single document as layers. Then set the Mode (which should be "Normal") for each light to "Screen".

    5) Now you can start diddling the layers. Change the opacity (to lessen intensity), duplicate layers (to intensify), bump layers over or under each other, change the Mode -- I use Darken, Overlay, and Burn a lot in renders like this. Play around! You can get some super cool effects!

    (This is the free way. If you have Draagonstorm's Render Toolbox, steps 1-3 are reduced to "check some boxes and push a button".)

    Masks

    Masking elements so you can work with them individually is harder to do the free way, but still doable. 

    1) Turn off everything in the scene but what you want to mask (say, the dancers), and render.

    2) In GIMP, use the Fuzzy Select Tool to select the blank space around the dancers (just click anywhere). On a new layer, use the Fill Bucket tool to turn that selection back. Now Invert the selection and fill bucket that part white.

    3) Congrats, you have a mask! Select all and copy it.

    4) Take your render (if you've done something like the multipass lighting, above, you'll need to flatten it first) and duplicate it. Now apply a layer mask to the duplicate (it should be on top of the original) and paste your mask into it.

    5) You can now apply effects or do whatever the heck you want to the masked layer and have it only affect the parts you've masked. For my render I applied Radial Motion Blur until I got something I wanted. Be sure to Blur both the render and the mask for best effect -- you can click to switch between a layer and its mask.

    Hot Spots

    This was a trick I learned from one of Dreamlight's free tutorials. Using the Lasso tool, roughly outline something in your scene you want to draw attention to -- in my case it was the devil's finger. Create a new layer; use the Fill Bucket to fill the lasso'd selection with white. Now switch the layer mode to Overlay. Voila! The area is brighter and will draw the eye!

    And that's it -- aside from some minor seam touch-up with my friend the Smudge Tool, and adding smoke with someone else's cool brush. :) It's not hard! Tedious occasionally... but no more so than trying to make That One Pose look right in Daz. If you can do that, you can do postwork. I promise. :)

    That's what my brother-in-law said too - and I just loved the first ones, 
    I'm hoping I can get a barnes and nobel gift card for xmas to get the 6th book lol

  • Okay, so there is something wrong with me... lol I guess I'm just really inspired this year...
    This time I made an attempt at postwork, something I'm still trying to learn how to do.
    This one is inspired by my brother-in-law and my very horrid fear of clowns.

    Thank you!! laugh Yeah, it seems that way; I've always loved Halloween, but this is the first time I've been able to get images to work for me this quickly. Usually I futz around with an image so long that I can barely get ONE done in time. 

    LOL This one is partly inspired by a character that my brother-in-law created as a bad guy for a gaming campagin. We started with the creepy clown line of thinking and it steered from that but the image of it stuck with me. I'm just trilled about the pose I found so I could have him licking the knife - which makes it that much creeper to me personally.

I actually didn't read the first book until after I'd seen the first movie but after that I tried to get ahead of the movies with my reading and was plesantly surprised at how close they managed to keep to the books. You're right though, they do seem to appeal to a wide audience - even my 93 y/o grandmother enjoys watching them with me lol

    You're right!!! It's been over 10 years since the series started and I still love Harry Potter! Wish there were 8 9 10 1000 books lol! I'd never get tired... Looking for a good new Fantasy serie to read. Any recommendations? BTW, amazing render, Chelle! That guy popping from the mirror is pretty creepy!! surprise

    I agree, I can watch the movies and even read the books over and over. I don't know if you've read it already, but you could check out The Belgariad and it's sequal The Malloreon by David Eddings - excellent books with very rich characters IMHO. And there's the Riftwar Saga by Raymond E. Fiest I would reccomend too.

    And thank you very much!!

    Thank you so much for the recommendations! I've been looking for new books and i'm always glad to meet new authors, I didn't know those yet. Will definitely check them out.

    They are great movies and books. My favorites by far. I still find myself watch the marathons they have on TV.  I also own all them so at times I take the weekends off and watch them all. I suggest watching the movies first. Then, when you read the books it fills in the parts that had to be cut do to time restraints.

    That might be interesting to watch before too :) I watched the first movie, then bought the 2 first books, and kept reading then watching, till I stopped reading for the lack of time, and it was so hard not to get spoilers in the internet :S Only finished the books this year and I still have 3 movies I haven't watched haha... Can't wait for it...I think J.K. should write more....

    I will definitely have read those... everyone seems to like them.  laugh

    Yeah, there are 7! I havent watched all of them yet, the last one I watched was the 5th and then I stopped because I wanted to read the books first :P Now I finished, I should watch all of them! You plan on reading the books too? LOL Myrtle does look like Harry! Hadn't noticed it!! Haha! laugh

    Iray is set up by default to stop rendering after 2 hours or 5000 samples.  In the Render Settings > Progressive Rendering change Max Time (secs) to a maximum of 259,200 secs ( 3 days ) or set at 0 and it will render until you either stop it or it hits the Max Samples ( defaults at 5000 ) or Rendering Converged Ratio limit ( defaults at 95% ), whichever comes first.
