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

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
I suppose it was bound to happen... I've had a bit of computer difficulty over the last week.  Actually, two events that taxed my limited ingenuity and understanding of the Render Box II. :roll:

Last week it became all but unbootable as the keyboard quit working for some reason.  I found that if I disconnected my nice wireless keyboard and used one that plugs into the back of the computer I could reboot and make things work.  This was not very satisfactory.  I finally figured out that one of the alt keys on my preferred keyboard had gotten stuck in the 'pressed' position and messed with everything I was typing.  Dang!  Well, once that was fixed I thought I was back in business.

Then I had my first real crash with Poser.  I know that there are many who complain about the program stating it's very unstable and such but I've really not had any problems.  I am running the latest version with patches that became available last month.  Anyhoo, I was editing a picture while it was rendering in the background and the whole thing locked up. :crash:  I finally had to use the Windows Task Manager to shut it down as it was never going to come back.  After that brutality, it would no longer load! Nuu My network engineer was not available so I had my first experiences with contacting tech support. I have a frequently asked question!    This was not what I'd call fun... but I learned a lot about the computer and Poser.  I found out how to delete preference files and re-install a program. Crazy   It was neat learning how to 'unhide' hidden directories and such but the bottom line is that I've not had use of the machine for my art for a few days and just got it back to where I like it in terms of settings and all this afternoon.:hooray: 

Perhaps there will be some resulting art soon....:dalove:

I'm just Molly. Mrs. Mike was my ID for many years when I modeled for my deviant husband, Mikhail:
:iconmad-mikhail:
I still model in real life a bit, but I also make pictures of my adventures in Second Life and over the last few years I've been learning Poser and making Poser pictures. In real life, I am a health care professional and a grandma. In my digital life I am a heroine, a villainess and a budding 3D artist.

The captive awakens by MollyFootman
The captive awakens
Marquis Robert De Chaine smiles with satisfaction as the abducted ingenue recovers consciousness.  "Perhaps we shall become better acquainted in the time before I must present you to the old one?" he murmurs.  :mwahaha:  She groans helplessly and the chain around her ankle clinks softly as she stirs.

Previous picture in the series is here:Abduction of the Ingenue by MollyFootman
The first picture in the series is here:Prelude to Abduction by MollyFootman

Molly's art notes: This was set up and rendered with Poser Pro Game Dev.  It was taken into Photoshop to tweak the sharpness and contrast and add a slight vignette effect.  All the meshes and textures were legally acquired and modified by teh Mollz.  I can point you to the appropriate vendors if you want to buy them for your own Poser or DAZ Studio library.

I shared a couple of pictures of RL Molly who is clearly gaining a bit of weight.  Probably too much time sitting at the computer. :roll:

I'm working on the next installment of NightFall and hope to have something ready to put up in the next few days.

Need to get back to sketching a bit each day as I have gotten out of that habit. ;)

Dreaming by MollyFootman
Dreaming
This is the other picture from very recently.  None of the others from the batch pleased me enough to bother sharing.  Fans of "mature" models :roll: will enjoy I hope.

Molly's art notes: I'm the model and the picture was taken by my significant other, the Mad One :iconmad-mikhail: using our little Panasonic Lumix.  I took it into Photoshop to slightly increase the contrast and sharpness, add a very slight glow and a subtle blurring vignette effect.

I have already entered into my journal this week, but it seemed like I should acknowledge all the nice Birthday wishes I have received.  What a nice surprise! :)

In RL my birthday was very low key.  My children took me out to dinner and Mike baked a cake (not a very good one, but the sincere effort is so appreciated:giggle:).

Thank you all so much, my dear Deviant muffins, for another year on Planet Earth with teh Mollz.  I appreciate all your supportive and helpful comments and always look forward to hearing from you about my attempts at art. :heart:
