Fun With FaceApp

You have probably seen pictures on the internet involving gender swapped celebrities and other creepy photo manipulations. These are the result of an app called FaceApp. A Facebook friend and fellow Poser user Dodger started putting in Poser renders in the app to see what happens, and the result is usually a deep dive into …

How Victoria 7 Is Killing A Hobby

As someone who does a lot of work in Poser for my games and other projects, that means I am involved in the 3D Rendering community, which I have written about before. About 3 years ago the community started getting bigger thanks to Daz3D releasing Daz Studio for free. Until then, the community primarily consisted …

A Day In The Life of Ariane

One of my post Something's In The Air projects was to update my web page.  After doing Date Ariane, I came up with this idea of showing what Ariane is doing every moment of every day and creating a desktop theme that changes with the time of day.  My idea got really elaborate for a …

Director’s Commentary 1: Another Date With Ariane

Now that the game is out, I thought I'd write some commentaries on the game, throw some insights into my thinking. I'm doing this as a "Director's Commentary" like you might have in a DVD if this was a movie.  This post will contain spoilers! If you have not played story 1 yet, download the …

What’s New With Ariane

I thought I'd take time out from working on Something's In The Air, to show some changes to Ariane.  If I get around to updating Date Ariane, I will be using these models.  So this is more of a preview of the prequel remake, I think. Ariane's looks have changed once again. This time I …

Fun With Subsurface Scattering

A few months into this project, I upgraded from Poser 7 to Poser 9. One of the new features of Poser 9 was a new skin rendering model called Subsurface Scattering, or SSS. It is a form of Ambient Occlusion.  If you don't understand this stuff, well neither do I.  All I know for sure …

Cosplay in 3D

As predicted I am back in "creative" mode, and working on Something's In The Air most of my spare time.  My current project is to create an outdoor Sci-Fi/Fantasy Festival, a "Comic-Con" type festival, though that name is TM so I can't actually call it that.  Even worse is that these festivals often have a …

Random Outtakes from the year making SITA

I have been doing "Principal Photography" on Something's in the Air now for a full year.  By my guesstimate, I'm about 2/3rds done (unless I come up with a brilliant plan to add to the project), so maybe another 6 months? Maybe? Anyways, here's some random spoiler free screenshots of what I have been doing …

If Date Ariane were redone with the new model, this is what it would look like.

As I have mentioned numerous times before, the "sequel" to Date Ariane, known as Something's In The Air features an updated model of Ariane, that took quite a bit of work to get right.  Redoing over 1000 pictures from Date Ariane is out of the question for the foreseeable future (but I'm not saying never).  …
