Knee Deep in RaptureHi everybody!...
I'm currently making my way through the pc version of BioShock...on Hard Level..gulp!...but it's an extremely cool game.
The graphics are outstanding, and the sound is really cool when cranked up to ear bleeding levels.
...and ..no subscription fer now...crap....... oh well...see you in a month...and for any who read this...take care!
Inactive...very sorryI will be very inactive over the next 4 to 6 weeks...work is pretty hectic right now. I try to comment on those I watch and keep up to date on my messages...but this may be difficult for a little while.
In the meantime...I am going to start attacking Terragen 2 and will be trying to find my style with the new program.
Take care everyone...and I hope to be back in better form soon!
Terragen's future is BRIGHT!I like it!
Surfacing is handled much like it was in T1...just more advanced controls and settings available per layer. Lighting is much, much better...as are the clouds.
The problem areas for me so far are:
camera control - this will take getting used to...because it is much more precise in this new program than the "point and click" method of T1.
render times - this is a given...the preview version only allows for so much quality and detail level in the final renders...but..things are pretty slow right now. They are promising to optimize the render times before the release of the full version...but..let it be known that you can never have enough memory. I have 2 gigs/dual channel...but I would like 4
So far...the only thing you can import over are the old terrain files.
Our greatest fear...and some thoughtsOur greatest fear is not that we are inadequate,
but that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
-Marianne Williamson from her book, A Return to Love
Anybody see 'Akeela and the Bee' ?...pretty good family flick...not as good as 'Searching for Bobby Fischer'....but good, though.
I'm totally excited about the Terragen 2 preview edition today!...I am off work, so I hope that
Terragen 2 jittersI'm looking at the preview pics of Terragen 2 again...available at http://www.planetside.co.uk/gallery/f/tg2
A few more days before the preview is released, and I'm already starting to get a little nervous about the new program...for a few reasons.
At first glance, the images look good, but given a closer look...and the actual quality is lacking in more than a few examples (realizing that these are just examples).
...like...in one image, the waves look amazing, but the fluffy clouds look grainy and almost look like a separate, lower quality render.
This is just one example of a very early preview image of what Terragen 2 will be capable of, but I have to assume that to get the amazing waves -and good clouds, render times will now run into several days...
No price has been mentioned yet because it's still too early, ...but I already know that I can't afford it if it's much past the $100.00 range.
Only being able to go by what I see so far, this thing is looking more and more like
Everything is about to changeI'm sure most Terragen artist know by now that a preview of the new Terragen 2 will be made available for a Free download Dec. 15
This will be just a preview run of what is to come...NOT Beta Software...so it won't contain the full set of of features available in the final Terragen 2 release.
Terragen as we know it now had a good run, but it is probably on the way out at the close of this year. I have spent countless hours in Terragen, and I've really enjoyed the program, but I am looking forward to the change, as I'm sure most are.
Here are all the details, along with preview thumbs
I was recently surprised...but even more than that..very honored to recieve a nomination for the "Master Award 2006" in the 3D category from http://future-art-magazine.deviantart.com/
The image in the running is Ruins II
The other categories are:
KindnessImagine my surprise to find that :iconthepurplemonster: has just purchased a Print Account for me!!
This will probably take a day or so to gather my images and set this all up...but I am excited
I am very moved by her act of kindness, and I would like to feature some of her works of art as a small way of expressing thanks for her gift. This is too cool!...
:iconthepurplemonster: is a very unique artist, and it is a pleasure to view and feature her works.
Her abstract designs and drawings display a very good sense of balance, and her images are loaded with extra details, without overcrowding the canvas. Be sure to visit her gallery http://thepurplemonster.deviantart.com/gallery/
Terrain help needed...I'm looking to create something with a "skull" terrain.
I'm hoping someone could provide a link if there is one around...
could someone generate one for me? (credit given, of course, as my terrain skills are minimum at best)...or give instructions on how to create one?
I have a few good skull bmp images, but no knowledge how to convert this to a workable terrain for Terragen.
I certainly appreciate any help!!
New Terragen HelpThere's a new Terragn Chatroom available...and all are invited!
The new room is called "terrahelp", and the very talented Ladyofspira will be on hand to help! http://ladyofspira.deviantart.com
This new chat will be used to offer help/advice/tips for the Terragen artist. Atmo settings, lighting, surfacing, advanced critiques and even possible collabs. A place to hang out and talk shop...new creations, ideas, thoughts, and questions.
The goal is simple: to help others discover and enjoy terragen as much as we do.
I will be available most mornings and quite a few hours on Tuesday and Friday (I'm in Central Time Zone).

I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking
Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.
2013: Revived and started the animation production. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2014: Resumed and held a contest. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2015: Resumed. Missing Halloween didn't miss Halloween!
For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.
I was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.
Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality.
Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,
