Yes, me been gone!
I've been working steadily at the Coleman outdoor company since November 2014. I'm laid off this week (a first from this place) , but will most likely be starting in a different section of the plant on Monday. I'm also involved in some business leadership activities (not connected to Coleman) that have been taking up a lot of evenings, but my goal is to be free to do art down the road. In the short term in terms of art, I have been playing with DAZ studio, and have had very little success with the new Iray renderer, except for one portrait which I thought turned out very well. So I kind of went back to 3delight and tweaked up some things there. Except for the base figure and a few freebees, I have purchased nothing for the new Genesis 3 female. I have purchased nothing since at least last spring, and I will be letting my DAZ Platinum club membership expire in October, as I have let my core membership expire here- all for budgetary reasons. I will be back in full at a later date.
I now have enough DAZ/Poser content acquired over a three year or so period to keep me busy in this arena for some time (though I always have wish lists of new items) I will be posting some renders of some refined characters I have created, and want to work more on weapons poses as well. Something else I need to do is do some updated weapons poses with my personal firearms collection as well as firearms reference poses.
