Just realized I never posted this one and it was one of my favorites in 2016.  Did this as part of my promo work with SympaticoStudio.

Rendered in Daz Studio 4.9 (Iray), minor postwork in Photoshop.

All resources used in the production of this work are owned by, created by, or licensed to me for personal and commercial use. They include:

Cosmological Death Match
Made for the RRRR contest in the DAZ commons.  Drew 6 random items from my runtime and created an image from them involving an "Alternative Holiday."  This pull was surprisingly coherent and ended up looking more like something I'd actually render than my typical humorous RRRR render!

My pull: (4 standard items, plus 2 "Lucky Bastard" extras for having won in prior contests)
5300 i13 Sorrow and Agony (ironman13)
Cloth Room Master Class: Pointy Dress and Poncho Thrown out, not using Poser
7590 NeoIndia Outfit for Genesis 2 Female(s) and Genesis 3 Female(s) (Arki, Shox-Design)
8134 Paradise Bird Hair (Valea)
2819 DM's Mystic Darkness (Danie, marforno)
LB: 2706 Divine Wings (midnight_stories)
LB: 6838 MDD Shimmer for V4.2 (Maddelirium)

Cosmological Death Match PPV Extravaganza

In the wake of streaming video services, the only thing keeping cable companies alive is the semi-annual Cosmological Death Match -- ONLY available on Pay-Per-View.  While technically not a holiday, the event is so heavily-followed, companies often unilaterally give employees the day off.  People everywhere eagerly fork over their money to watch demigods, demons, angels, goddesses (and/or hybrids thereof) battle TO THE DEATH (or canonization or reincarnation or entry to Nirvana, as each religion allows.)

Rendered in Daz Studio (Iray), postwork in Photoshop.  Spent a lot of time tweaking converted V4 textures for Iray, since Maddelerium's texture was so gorgeous and complex!

Pass The Peace Pipe, Sister
Made this as part of the RRRR contest back in May.  I forgot how much I liked it!  It's part 3 of 3 in a "story" contest.  (Had to render 3 story-sequence images that included a group of random items from my library.)  The original post with all 3 entries can be seen here:…

Greatest Treasures

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 20, 2015, 5:28 PM
“The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart.”

~Maryanne Williamson

It was nice to look at my dA artist's page today and find myself pleased with all my "newest deviations."  Usually, I find myself wincing at one or another, thinking about what I didn't like and what I could have changed.  But today I surprised myself and felt only contentment.  Maybe it's because I haven't had much time to render -- less quantity, more quality and all that.  In any event, it was a nice moment.

I can't believe we're in 2015 -- and that we're almost 1/12th of the way through it already.  My twins turned 11 just before Christmas!  I'm going to pretend that I will age more like fine wine and less like smelly cheese... though I'm from Wisconsin, so that might not be the case!  Anyway, my resolution for the year is to not have resolutions!  I'd very much like to be more mindful and in-the-moment than I am now.  It's nice to have plans and all, but I feel I could benefit from letting go of my schedules and expectations.  I'd like to see where the year takes me.  After all, you can't be disappointed if you have no expectations, and I think I'd be happier if I could live by that idea.

As always, I have some wonderful art to share with the world!  Check out these amazing artists...

Featured Artist: : parrotdolphin

:iconparrotdolphin: parrotdolphin has long been a favorite vendor/artist of mine for her terrific commercial texture and material products.  Not surprisingly, she is also gifted outside of her virtual shop, delighting us with gorgeous 3D renders and dazzling fractals!  And while you visit her artist's page, be sure to check her journal and offer your condolences on her "untimely demise. "  (Read her journal and you'll understand!)

Featured Artist: : jacktomalin

:iconjacktomalin: Speaking of amazing 3D content creators... jacktomalin is a god among men when it comes to modeling AMAZING 3D architecture and scenery.  I have no idea how he manages to be so prolific without compromising on quality.  (But I'm sure glad he is!)  The art in his gallery isn't just rendered beautifully, it's modeled that way, too.  (Be sure you download the images for the full-resolution experience!)

Featured Artist: : BJPentecost

:iconbjpentecost: When I first stumbled across the amazing gallery of BJPentecost, I was blown away by the incredible detail displayed in every breathtaking image.  She is truly a master of visual, digital art!  I can't possibly express in writing how rich, emotional, and glorious her works are -- and I don't have to because they speak for themselves.  It's also worth noting that her comments are nearly as delightful as her art!  She has a wonderfully down-to-earth voice that is both humorous and thoughtful.

Proud of our Wisconsin teachers. When the product of your labor is a child's future, you must stand up for what you know is right. Funding my publicly-educated autistic son's paraprofessional should come before funding freeway interchanges. Period.

I may be soft in your palm but I'll soon grow
Hungry for a fight, and I will not let you win.
My pretty mouth will frame the phrases that will
Disprove your faith in man.
So if you catch me trying to find my way into your
Heart from under your skin...
Fast as you can, baby scratch me out, free yourself
Fast as you can...

Hi. I stumbled across you on fanfiction. Devoured every single well written word as if it was ambrosia. Amazing stuff. You earned a new watcher here as your art is lovely as well. I hope life is treating you well. :)
