Come learn the art of 3D computer generated art and animation. This blog deals with the lessons learned and the art created by Robert G. Male using DazStudio from Daz3D.
Also covered are the ancillary software, tools, techniques, and processes needed both before and after rendering in the 3D software.
I am looking for bloggers, who create art, to write articles for this blog in October. If you're interested in reaching a larger and/or different audience contact me. Show me your own site and/or blog. Give me an idea what you'd like to write about in your article. The articles can be with respect to Daz3D, 3D art in general, 3D animations, photographs, paintings, sketches, and other art forms. Not familiar with my articles? I discuss techniques, the creative influence behind the art, CD covers, role-playing game art. You could write about your design aesthetics, what you try to convey with a piece of art, the stories told by your pictures, animation or photography. You may include images to be linked to in the article. Due to technical limitations I cannot accept animations. Thank you.
Some conditions apply. This blog is posted to my Artzone account and to my Learning Dark Arts blog site. I have full discretion to reject proposals or ask for re-writes if I feel they are warranted. I reserve the right to make edits for spelling and grammar that you might miss. Aim for an article no more than twice as long as I tend to post--let's say about 500 words max. Please suggest tags for your article, but I reserve the right to modify them to make use of my own available tags or to even make up my own. I will add a brief introduction at the start of the posting.
These articles are at worst PG rated. That said some of the art available, with a suitable warning attached, is R rated. Please no NC-17 art. For Learning Dark Arts the follow are acceptable: nudity, violence, blood and gore, and what may be considered disturbing imagery. Of those only nudity is acceptable for Artzone--sorry if that is your desired audience, but I have to abide by the rules and my own allowances for what I post there. The following are NOT acceptable for either site: lewd poses and pornography (sort or hard core), imagery that may be considered racist, discriminatory or bigoted, excessive guts and gore.
You may repost your article elsewhere 3 months after I post it, and you retain the copyright to the articles and images but extend me the right to display your article for as long as I maintain any of the sites it is posted on. Finally I reserve the right to create a follow up post on your article at any time and reference your original on my sites. You must let me display copies of the images for your article directly on both sites (if applicable) for as long as I maintain the sites. Please send me the images or links from which I can download them. I will host them myself. By submitting an article and images--when asked to--you agree to these conditions.
