Hey you're still around :) Do you still post on Artician? I try intermittently but the constant server issues get me down XD How have you been? Model looks like it's coming along all right, this a new character or a redo of an old one?

Hey, well yeah I might start posting early personal head work-ups and other stuff. Great to hear from you. I need to dig back into your lit submissions here.

I stopped posting on Artician a while back. Uploading was crippled, evening image linking in discussions became crippled, but scammers were/are abundant. Damn shame too, I told them that that auto-import from DA was a bad idea as it would flood their severs and attract the wrong kind of attention, but they wouldn't listen and got overwhelmed. I even tried to contact to mods a lot of times to see if they would sell the site code or give permission to use it for my alumni group, but they never got back. Maybe that was for the best as all those wankers in that alumni group vanished.

It's a new character model possibly same story, maybe one other story I'm developing, I'm not totally sure yet. The model is from somewhere in Australia which seems kind serendipitous with you commenting on it. Pretty cool. Are you still learning blender? That thing really seems to be getting rather beastly.

My what submissions? Literature? I don't do fics much anymore, concentrating too much on my long-running project XD This one was a little (pffft 42 chapters) collab with a friend.

Do you think it was the auto-import that did them in? It wouldn't really surprise me I guess.  I was kind of amazed that the communication just shut down so suddenly like that, the staff had always been so happy and active in the forums, and then no announcements and they vanish without a trace oO I was very casually chatting with one of the guys that was an active forum mod on G+ years ago now and even he wasn't sure where the admins/site builders/creators had gotten to.  Yeh I kind of stopped uploading there when every attempt got me "server is getting hammered" (and yeh you're right the spammers didn't seem to have any dramas).

LoL XD Nope definitely not one of mine XD I've gotten reasonable with Blender (pretty much all the recent 2d stuff are overpaints in Krita of setups in Blender), the most obvious 3d things are some pokemon fanart (specifically a pidgeot and a vaporeon, former done completely in Blender, latter sculpted, retopo'd and textured with 3d Coat and rigged and rendered in Blender).  I could have done everything in Blender, just the parts I did in 3dc were a lot easier to do in 3dc than in Blender XD Currently getting the 3dc <=> Blender workflow sussed out.  Hope you post more stuff about your stories and characters soon :)

42 chapters is still pretty significant and enough for me to chew on for a good while. Would you ever consider having you and your friend reading and recording it to be posted as a podcasts?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was the auto-import that broke everything. It overwhelmed the servers and the small team running the site, it overwhelmed the scouts trying to curate parts of the art. They basically wanted to be DA overnight but never realistically considered how they would have to grow and change the infrastructure to accommodate that and then got hammered continuously. My guess is that it became such a management nightmare they just ran away in sheer terror.

It was supposed to be a little quickie project, but I don't really do little or quick XD ("quick" for me is about an hour).  Plus my friend had a lot of fun characters to play with.  I'm not sure how much my friend knows about podcasting or whether she'd be willing, I've got too much on to add another project that's going to take up more time than writing does XD I can ask her if she'd be okay letting someone else do it if they so felt the inclination.

That sounds plausible.
