Hello,

I am a professional artist and animator. I have been doing graphics for 30 years and 3D animation for 15 years. I started with 3D Studio in 1993, then dumped it when they changed it to Max, I took up Lightwave, and it has been my primary tool ever since. I fisrt got Lightwave on a DEC Alpha on loan from Amblin.

I have worked mainly in video games, lately much more television. Here is a commercial I am currently working on, I have a pass or two left to do:

I'd post some images but I can't yet!

Man, Even after I long forgot that I was registered here, the forums didn't forget me. In fact it was so nice, it sent me a birthday greeting. How sweet.

I am a blender head with a little of poser experience.

Well, I figured since this is the new members thread, that I would say

Hi! I'm new to the forum. I'm a fan of BSG and Dr. Who. Hope this is the right place for this.

I posted in another welcome thread after finding this, so I could try to cover myself. hehe

I like to think of myself as an artist. I do mostly fantasy work in DAZstudio, but I am going to be making more sci-fi themed art.

I'm inspired all over again, due to a recent addiction to the BSG new series and getting back in touch with DR Who. I haven't watched it til recently since I was a child.

Always been a fan of Aliens, though. ^_^

Yes, this is the prefect place for this. Though, if you haven't already found it, we have a sister site that is exclusively for BSG: http://www.colonialfleets.com/

You might want to check it out, if you haven't already. As far as Dr. Who, we've got a whole forum devoted to that subject here.

Yeah, fantasy and landscapes are cool. I dabble occasionally in Terragen myself, though I did pick up Maximum PCs Summer '08 Digital Media How-to Guide earlier and the CD has many cool apps on it, including Bryce 5.5 (the free version of Bryce.) And Bryce is supposedly mostly landscape software, so I might have to install it when I get my new PC and give it a try.

ello. The name's KA-513 (a nomenclature of one of my OCs). Anyway, I found this site through I think renderosity. (yes, my short-term memory isn't the best).

Besides all, that I use Photoshop and Daz Studio as my chosen tools of the trade.

Hello new friends as well as old.

I got started doing Cg stuff back around 2,000 when a friend gave me a copy of Bryce 3D that came with his subscription to a CG magazine. I began to mess with it and fell instantly in love with CG art and animation.

From there I discovered Poser 4 and then as time went on I made the leap to MAX v8 and then LWO v9.

I'm more of an animator than a modeler although I have built some of my own items in MAX.

At this point I do most of my work with DAZ Carrara Pro 6 because it is the most intuitive modeling/animating suite I've come across. Not that it's better than others, just that it works with the way I work and allows me to concentrate on creating my art. As many of you know it's easier to create art when the tools work with you and not when you have to work with the tools.

I found this site a while back and registered because I needed a Jawa for an animation I was making. I grumbled over the 5 post rule but as you can tell by the number of my posts, I not only got over it - but I found the people here to be 1) really cool (2) really creative - and - (3) really helpful.

I am not a guru with Max or Lwo but for those of you who've posted that you use DAZ products, feel free to pick my brain if you have any questions regarding either D|S or Carrarra. I'm here because Warrior and EG180 have both taken the time to help me at one point or another. So if I can return the favor and help somebody else, I'm all over it.


Cheers to my fellow DAZaholics!

Hello everyone!

There's a Stargate in the posting box... that's pretty durn cool

I draw a Star Trek manga comic called "Tamerlane"... I'm not sayin' it's a GOOD comic... just that it is a comic It IS Star Trek (Based on a Saladin Class ship)...

I...erm... I started using modified 3d models in my second issue... I'm not sure whether I'm happy with it or not, but I'm working on it.

Anyway, I have been building simplified sets, simplified ships, etc (I'm concentrating on the texture maps... Ironically I don't want it to LOOK 3d... I know... I'm strange).

Anyway, I found this place whilst searching for reference models (Before I thought of using them in-comic directly). Since then, I've been building my own models...

Of course, I use Anim8or... a really low-power program... but it works on my little laptop, so it's a good thing... But it also means I can't boolean and I have no real control over my normals (I use Poser as the render engine... boy... the more I write, the worse I'm sounding...)...

Er... all of that to say "Hello"

---Aabh

Hello Aabh.

I think your comic looks pretty cool.
Also, I understand your not wanting it to look 'real' or 'CG'. - Some of the time comics should just look like comics. That is if I read your comment correctly.

As for your render engine - you might want to check out DAZ Studio.
Not only is it free but it also has a 'Render to Toon' feature that might be just what you need.


Hello, welcome aboard, and don't be embarassed to be using Poser.
If you notice, in the download section there are quite a few Poser items that are made by some outstanding modelers. As an animator I feel the tools should work around my talent and I shouldn't have to work my talent around my tools. It's all about being creative and what tools allow your inner artist to come to the surface. But that's just how I see it.

Hey, what software are you using to make your comic?

Thank you for the warm welcome!

Taranis: I would love to! Thank you!

UrbanArmitage: Thank you

Fretslayer, I just use good ol Photoshop. I live in Japan and I have access to Deleter ziptones (The halftone patterns and such... I can buy them at the art store), I just scan them in and add them to the backgrounds/foregrounds whatever I also added them to the texture maps on the sets...

I have Manga Studio, but It was a little too unwieldy to use... so I went back to Photoshop...

I also have Daz_Studio, but, I had similar problems making it do what I wanted it to do... so I fell back on Poser. I use Poser's very limited Toon mode to make the models render with no shadow (Flat). But you know, that's the second time Daz_Studio has been recommended to me. Perhaps I should give it another shot

I'm out of date, though. I'm using Poser 6 and Photoshop 7... I simply don't have the cash available to upgrade.

Aabh one of the nice things about DAZ Studio is that it's free.


I have Poser 7 but I never use it.
I do 90% of my animation work in Carrara Pro 6.

I think your comic looks fantastic.
Regaring Manga Studio - I looked at it but it looked too complicated for me to deal with and like I said before, I think it's important for the artist to find tools that work with the artist, not the other way around. Manga Studio gave me brain cramps!
LOL!
