I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

The month of October continues with DAZ’s Platinum Club Anniversary sale and their crazy deals. Being October, they also put a bunch of monsters and Halloween ghouls on sale too. I just couldn’t resist picking up some of DAZ’s Monstrosities!

After Hours

I spent a lot of time on the set for the Bedroom Scene, so I thought it would be easy to just recycle a potion of that scene for my next render. I though I’d take a break from fantasy scenes and do a simple portrait.

We Bring News of Victory, My Queen

I really like the wet skin maps that came with the free Victoria 4 Pro Bundle that I scored during DAZ’s PA Festival sale. I really wanted to use them in a scene. What better place to get Victoria wet than in a Greek Bath? I was also itching to do a follow-up to the Super-Ultra-Mega-Epic Battle Scene. Gotta love those Centurions!

Wine with Friends

blogEntryTopper
I picked up Jack Tomalin’s Holiday Nook. I wanted to make a scene with a sexy girl in lingerie having a glass of wine by the fireplace. The more I played around with it, the more I wanted it to have a few sexy girls dressed in lingerie drinking wine by the fireplace. Something of a sleepover, but with adults.

New Characters: Ianthe & Mina

DAZ had another crazy sale. They kill me. They have sales every week, and I just can’t refuse. This time, it was buy one at 30% off, buy two and get them for 50% off. I already had some figures on my Wish List, so I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get them on the cheap.

The Wisps


blogEntryTopper
I liked the Wisps in Pixar’s Brave and wanted to do something like that. I’d never heard of them before and though that Pixar made them up. It wasn’t until I Googled it that I found out that Wisps have been sighted in swamps, bogs, and marshlands for hundreds of years. Read More...

Super-Ultra-Mega-Epic Battle Scene

I’ve had it in my head for weeks to create a super-epic battle scene full of Victorias. Something big. Something with a lot of blood and gore, and a little nudity. Read More...

Gladiator

I picked up some really cool Centurion armor as well as the Aslan Court. I think they’ll make for a very cool battle scene. I picture something with a ton of Victorias running around killing each other like savages!! It’ll be EPIC!!!! Read More...

The Bedroom Scene

blogEntryTopper
I picked up the Reflections Victorian Bedroom set, along with the Reflections Furniture and Reflections Vanity and Dressing Screen add ons. They’re normally a good $17 each, but if you’re in the Platinum Club, you get them for $1.99. It’s a steal. Putting them all together should make for a very nice looking setting. Read More...
