I share Randall's problems with efficiency... >.<

From the web comic xkcd by Randall Munroe:



Molly asks, "What do you want to see me spend my time on?"

Nice, nice, very nice!

Oh a sleeping drunkard up in central park
Or the lion hunter in the jungle dark!

Or the Chinese dentist or the British queen--
They all fit together in the same machine!

Nice, nice, very nice!
Nice, nice, very nice!
So many people in the same device!

-From the prog rock group Ambrosia. Lyrics by Kurt Vonnegut jr., Puerta, Pack, North and Drummond.

Love

And I'm searching for a heart
Searching everyone
They say love conquers all
You can't start it like a car
You can't stop it with a gun
-Warren Zevon

Thomas Jefferson said:

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."

Teh Mollz sez: "It's equally true of a woman."

Before you slip into unconsciousness...

Before you slip into unconsciousness,
I'd like to have another kiss,
another flashing chance at bliss...
another kiss, another kiss.

-The Crystal Ship (The Doors)

If you can't be with the one you love...

...and if you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with! Love the one you're with!

-Stephen Stills
As most of you Deviant muffins know, I started out modeling for my husband's art (he's been kind of stalled lately and I don't think he's posting anything in a year or two).  I used to call myself "Mrs. Mike" but began to feel like I wanted my identity as a model and artist to separate a bit from him and began calling myself Molly Footman.  The Footman came from Second Life.   You see, in the days of old, you chose from a list of "family names" and I chose Footman for a lot of reasons I won't go into here.  Since I was in transition for naming and sense of identity I used a really silly mash up of "Mrs. Mike" and "Molly" for my first name in Second Life: "MissuzMollyMike".  It was foolish as I am stuck with it now, but I have changed my display name there to my preferred digital identity as "Molly Footman".

Anyway...

I started messing with Poser about 4 years ago.  Here's my first effort good enough to share:
Yikes by MollyFootman
I like to think I've come a long way and am getting pretty good.  I have developed a work flow and I think I'm ringing a lot out of the Firefly rendering engine that comes with Poser and have been learning a bit about alternate rendering engines like Luxrender and Octane.

I started trying to improve my ability to draw free hand about the same time I began messing with 3D rendering.  You see, I was laying out my pictures by hand to help me figure out how to set them up in Poser.  For a time I even did a hand drawn comic strip "Molly Matters" which I may return to someday:
Molly Matters 08 by MollyFootman
I recently got some very nice feedback from an artist I respect and I have picked up my pencil and paper again.  I usually do my rough sketches on paper and then scan them into Sketchbook Pro where I refine them and finally into Photoshop for finishing, background and such.

I have been doing comic book stories and my tool for laying out comic book pages is Comic Life.

I have been dabbling in content creation and modification for Poser and my tools are Silo, Hexagon, Sculptris, Curvy and Misfit3D.  I would like to get one of the big commercial programs but am hesitant to spend (literally) thousands of dollars unless I get to the point where I can use one of these cheaper 3D mesh editing programs pretty comfortably.  I am thinking along the lines of Maya, Modo, Z-Brush, 3D Max... hard to say as there are things I like about each of them but am so unsophisticated that I'm not really sure which would be best for me.

My chief sadness about tools and techniques is the widening chasm between DAZ 3D and Smith Micro.  DAZ (an acronym for Digital Art Zone, Mike tells me) started as a provider of content for Poser.  As they have developed their own 3D rendering program they have moved away from supporting the Poser format (which is incredible at maintaining support for legacy files) toward their own refinements.  Their business model is interesting.  They give away the rendering program (in a basic form) for free with the hope of selling an enormous amount of content for people to play with in it.  It appears to work as they seem to be doing just fine.  Smith Micro has taken a Swiss Army knife approach to Poser trying to make it a program that does more than just set up and render... the latest "Game Dev" version has some very interesting features but one thing it does not do is make it easy to import the newest DAZ formats, especially the Genesis 3 characters that have just been released.

Although I'd love to be able to fool around with the Genesis 3 characters I'm not ready to let go of Poser which is the one program I have a really good work flow for. :roll:  Interestingly, the next version of Poser promises to add an alternate rendering engine comparable to Octane and Lux but there is not mention of supporting the DAZ Gen 3 characters... I smell competition between these two products which make teh Mollz sad. :(  I guess that is the way of innovation, though, and I hope Smith Micro can keep up.

A last note for those interested in my tools.  I have and use the latest versions of Poser, Sketchbook Pro, Photoshop and Comic Life.  I can help you with those programs if you ask as I am very familiar with them and can at least tell you how I am doing what I am doing (Caveat: I am a Windoze user and my experience with the aforementioned programs is within that OS). :giggle:  I am dabbling with DAZ Studio (mostly to convert content for use in Poser ;P), Hexagon, Carrara, Silo, Curvy, Misfit3D, Bryce, Octane, Luxrender and most recently BlackSmith 3D.  I just got Manga Studio and it may replace Comic Life :hmm:.  I also use Second Life as a storytelling medium and as an art tool (although not so much of late).

Perhaps I should do a survey on this last thought: is there any interest in my doing commissions?  What sort of media and such?  What should I consider charging?

Blue Koi - Counterfeit - 01 by MollyFootman
Blue Koi - Counterfeit - 01
Forgive me for taking my time with this.  I know I could tell the same story in like two panels... but I like all the movement details! :giggle:  Someday I'm going to have to learn to animate. :roll:

The beginning and previous page is here:Blue Koi - Counterfeit - 01 by MollyFootman

The next page will be coming up sometime in this lifetime. ;P

Molly's art notes:  Set up and rendered in Poser Pro Game Dev, tweaked in Photoshop and then mounted in Comic Life 3 as a comic book page.   All the stuff you see has been legally acquired and I will point you to the vendors for you to acquire them legally as well.

Support content creators! I'm in ur post! Shakin mah fish!

Blue Koi - Counterfeit - 01
Just a bit of a story featuring one of my River Heights Heroines, Blue Koi.  Her secret identity is that of Alice Mollus, a Zoology Professor at the State University in River Heights.  One quiet night... :mwahaha:

The story begins here.

If you want to know more about Blue Koi see this:Sisters - Good Times by MollyFootman

And this:Blue Koi by MollyFootman

The next page is here:Blue Koi - Counterfeit - 01 by MollyFootman

Molly's art notes:  Set up and rendered in Poser Pro Game Dev.  The background city, River Heights, is taken from Second Life Screen grabs of that sim where I have played on occasion.  All the stuff you see has been legally acquired and I will point you to the vendors for you to acquire them legally as well.

Chloroformed! - 2
Another view of the chloroformed maiden with the cloth left over her nose and mouth, it's fumes keeping her unconscious.  The first of this series appeared here:

Mature Content

Chloroformed! by MollyFootman


Molly's art notes:  I am the model and the photographer is :iconmad-mikhail:.  I took the picture into Photoshop to correct the color a bit, sharpen it and add some blurring vignette.  It may be that I am a somewhat better model with my face covered by a chloroform-soaked cloth... Wink/Razz

For those who are interested in such things, this picture was made in the same session that produced the base pictures for this:Victim of Anyface by MollyFootman

Quietly turning 2 by MollyFootman
Quietly turning 2
This is another angle of the unconscious maiden; pose is identical to this:Quietly turned on side by MollyFootman.  I suppose the villain who has rendered her unconscious is circling her and examining his prize from every angle. :mwahaha:

Molly's art notes: I am the model and :iconmad-mikhail: is the photographer.  The clothing is various shiny things I've picked up over the years with the long-sleeved leotard being the most recent acquisition.  The skirt from Skinz is more than 20 years old! :giggle:  How time flies. :roll:  I took the picture into Photoshop to mess with contrast a bit and color balance.  I added a blur vignette.  It's hard not to mess too much with something in Photoshop and wind up with the picture looking like plastic. Doh!

Spicee was on the set of a movie where she is going to play the role of a street walker turned Superhero in front of a green screen.
Spicee on set by keymakernyc  
After watching her shake her sexy fat ass I saw my chance to get my revenge for missing out on an opportunity to knock Spicee cuckooo at IHOP.  I picked up a nice shiney golf club that would look perfect over her head.
Spicee vs Golf Club by keymakernyc  
I hit Spicee extra hard.  She was knocked silly instantly.  Gravity took over and that lard booty beauty fell on her great fat ass.
Spicee falls by keymakernyc  
Of course when Spicee falls downs its always comedic a sight to behold.  Her large legs in the air is something that I dream of everyday.  Once she hit the ground she was out for the count snoring. It took a whike for her to come out bearlike slumber.Spicee Poked by keymakernyc  
Spice a little dazed seeing colorful flashing lights tried to get up when I aimed a trident that I borrowed from Aquaman at her enormous rump.  POINK was the heard as i poked her buffalo butt.Spicee in pain and embarrassed by keymakernyc  
Spicee screamed in pain and the laugher started from the cast and crew that Spicee continues to torement and bully.  Spicee crawled away in embarrassment as the laugher got louder and louder.

Lola was one the beach enjoying a nice quiet relaxing day in the sun.
Lola by keymakernyc  
Until she heard what started out as a faint sounding whistle (like the cartoon falling sound effect) Just thing she noticed  a shadow around her and as he shadow got bigger the whistle sound got louder and then she heard a womans voice scream "look out belowwwww"
Boink by keymakernyc  
Lola's cousin Tracy randomly fell from the sky and crash landed on Lola's large ass.  As she landed her chin hit the back of Lola's head cause both girls to become cuckooed and dazed seeing stars.
Lola and Tracy dazed by keymakernyc  
Lola had a dopely look of disbelief on her face while Tracy was in full cuckoo with eyes crossed and her tongue sticking out. Right before the dazed ladies were able to recover they where both wiped out by large wave.  If course this caused them to see even more stars.
Lola and Tracy wipeout by keymakernyc 
Damn Lola has a really nice ass.
