Okay, time to sit down and tell folks about my new website, the Patreon, and all the good stuff going on.  So let's get down to it.

For those that didn't know, I have a Patreon, you can see it here:

Here is a little promo video:

Here's the thing.  There are a LOT of perks I have set up.  You can get a commission, a lifetime charter membership at Ambient Dimension, even Adopt one of my unnamed characters from past renders, give them a name and a personality.  I am even setting it up to allow people to have an image of their choice printed up as a huge poster and sent to them.  Only a tiny signature in the bottom corner, no big logo, watermark or the like.  All of this Patreon is to help fund a new computer, one capable of running Octane, the high end render engine.  This will mean MUCH faster and better renders in terms of lighting.  Things will look a LOT more realistic, and the skin will look better too.  If you've seen what Octane and RedSpec SSS can do, you will understand what I mean.  But this will cost a LOT of money.  This is why I am doing commissions with the Patreon, and the whole adopt a character thing.

In fact, the first person to adopt a character before Tuesday (St. Patty's Day), gets a SECOND character to adopt free!  The second character is the lovely Irish elven lady, featured in this picture:
Kiss Me... by Nephanor

Now, I am also looking to start up a comic if possible, but I need a LOT more patrons before I can start looking at that.  Mostly because I need to be able to spend time doing it.  There will be a lot of rendering, and unless I am making money doing it, I have to try and spend a lot of my time working on finding a better paying job.  If the rendering can add to my part time day job enough to make the bills easier to handle, then I can focus on more art.  I have a couple concepts, as I have a couple decent world setups.  We have the law office where Succuboss, Danae, Tallrene, Megan and three other ladies all work.  We have a trio of elven adventurers, who have all met many other characters from renders in a fantasy world.  We have a whole sci-fi collection of characters even starting.  And we have characters who can appear in any of the realms.  If we can get enough people interested, and probably a good writer of the comic story itself, I can start on that.

I also have opened up a new website, basically promoting myself, my art, my commissions, my patreon and as a central news source about me, my art, Ambient Dimension, and more.  You can find that here:

Now, this site you can sign up for, but unless you are a patron who supports me with $5 or more a month, you don't get access to a couple parts of the site, including the voting on new art, and the Patron only art.  Commissions can be done directly or through Patreon.  If done though Patreon, they are a little more expensive, but you get more value, as you get other perks as well, including access to all the patron only art.

I know I am not the best 3D artist out there, but unless I get more practise, I will never get better.

Oh, and there WILL be adult art for Patrons.  The comics may even end up adult if I can get them going.

I gotta ask, what texture did you use for your lovely frost fairy?
ranthar Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
RM Nieves.  I strip it down to just the texture and use colour math to make it more blue.  Looks too grey otherwise.  I just wish I could figure out how to get the frosty look she has in the designer.
Nephanor Featured By Owner Edited Mar 14, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aha, I thought that was it.  I actually took it and was able to make it more bluish AND give it SSS.  Here's what you do: Drag Edge_Blend_5 and Fast Scatter from the pile.  Copy the color on the fast scatter, and make a new node, Subsurface Skin and change it's color to be the saved one from the scatter.  Attach the plug of the SS skin to the Outer color on Edge blend 5, there the fast scatter is currently.  At this point, the fast scatter is useless, so you can delete it.  Now, to change the tint to be more blue in Diffuse Color, but make it very light.  The character I did this on used this as the color: B2D0EA.  The results were this: (bottom right)… You can't see the frosty look with the light I used, but it is still intact.
