WARNING: Gnostic Christian / existentialist / Otherkin / genderfree / anarchist / feminist / polyamorous asexual panromantic / and very serious about it all, thank you

In Finnish, "Mustakettu" means "a silver fox with black fur" (that's right); the number is production date. Nope, I'm not Finnish, but my grandmother was.

You can't technically call me an "artist" because I don't have any formal training in anything art-related (unless literary analysis counts... or mathematical analysis... or structural analysis...). Yet, I always strive to do my best.

I am truly sorry if my work offends you for whatever reason, be it one of aesthetics, religion or world politics. Or one of mismatched sense of irony. No, really.

I dabble in traditional art, but I specialise in 3D rendering. I do some modeling and texturing of my own; however, my forte is lighting and material set up, so I generally use content provided by other artists (hey folks, you're awesome).

I render almost exclusively in 3Delight, a totally amazing and in many ways groundbreaking Renderman-compliant renderer with a generous free licence; I prefer to write my own shaders because it's a lot of fun.

From time to time, I put out freebies to be used with DAZ Studio, a lovely "hobbyist" program with great potential.


If you find a "pinup" image in my gallery, check again. Your brain is fooling you.

Hey DAZ Studio users - you want to know a secret?

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 31, 2015, 8:35 AM
A secret long kept from the hobbyist 3D community?

3Delight has had a lovely path tracing implementation for quite a while, MIS and all. One of the best in the industry actually. And path tracing is an unbiased rendering algorithm by definition.

You just don't have the shaders that make use of this framework.

Yet.

There. I said it.

// this Fox is not affiliated with DNA Research in any way; and yes, DNA Research is the name of the company that develops 3Delight - now that's what I call a sense of style //

Crap... lost track of where the conversation was... But to answer your question, thanks loads for pointing me towards Demon & Wizards! Very much enjoying the sound, and they seem to be kicking my muse right in the writing muscles, which is a very good thing right about now. (Overdue on way too many projects now...)
