  5. It's time for another voting drive! As with previous voting drives we will be sending out voting reminders once a day for the first week of a new voting cycle. This helps to get a good position in the top rankings early on. For people wanting to help out around the site but who can't necessarily contribute in other ways, this is a great way to help out. I can't understate how important voting is. Almost all of our traffic comes from TopRPSites, and when we aren't in the top rankings, we don't draw in new users. So get on in there and vote for Storyteller's Circle!

  6. So as some of you may already know, we're looking to get the website's platform updated to the newest version of Xenforo. The newer platform (Xenforo 2) comes with a lot of solid features and bug fixes from the original Xenforo. To reach this end we have setup a donation campaign for people interested in helping out.

    My newest render. It is mainly a test for some various scripts I wanted to try out.

    I absolutely love the variety in your art! From more abstract/geometric pieces to extremely realistic, while keeping the simplistic and refreshing feel about them. Thank you for sharing!

    Thank you very much. I try to keep my scenes fairly simplistic, and only use details necessary to convey the desired atmosphere, hence why my color choices are few.

    I also want to note that for the kitchen one I used scripts for the meshes, and modified them to fit better (Books, cabinets, doors, etc are from a script.) The other renders don't use premade models, however.

    I really like your art style; seems very simple, yet quite deep! Keep it up!

    When I get this antiquated graphics card replaced, I certainly intend to make more content soon, thank you for your support.

    Oh sweet! I am just beginning to come by an appreciation of how much work goes into 3D. What program(s) are you using?

    I am using plain ol' Blender. Very versatile, you can do just about anything in it, and free (Though more professional software is better if you want top tier functionality).

    The effort in 3d depends on what you are doing, it can range from a day to weeks to months for small projects. I spend a lot of hours on mine, mainly because I learn something new every moment, and I never have a concept fleshed out ahead of time. What you see here are literally just hours of adding details until I am satisfied.

    The most painstaking aspect of 3d for me is easily selecting individual vertices when making a mesh. It is inherent fine tuning, no way to really skip that.

    I have some new ideas for 3d to try out, so I will likely make something new soon. I have been spending time messing around with old DOS games (Gladiator is sweet), emulation, photo editing, and setting up virtual machines.

    I tried Blender for a bit, but while I can modify things that already exist pretty easily, I have trouble setting up the basic shapes. And so many hot keys!

    I've done a few things now with Scupltris, but I am really ridiculously new to the world of 3D.

    I hope to see more of your stuff as you go!

    For the most part, I make my own models. When I don't manually make it from scratch, I make it using a plugin and edit it to what I need. I am still very new to 3d, it is hard as hell, but you just have to not get ahead of yourself.

    Blender is amazing, but the hotkeys are ridiculous. Sometimes you learn a new hotkey/menu and it cuts workload in half.
