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've been fascinated with retro swimsuits and foundation garments of late. :hmm:  Not too much available that is quite what I'm looking for in Poser.  That's all the more reason that I have to continue working on my ability to create content. ;)

I got hold of a couple of girdles from Amazon and corralled :iconmad-mikhail: into working with me to make a few pictures, two of which I've decided were good enough to share:

I'm looking at the "Monster under the bed" challenge and pondering whether I dare attempt to share anything for that?

I should also continue with "NightFall: Shocked", shouldn't I? :giggle:

Well, whatever teh Mollz decides, she hopes you will go with her on the ride, dear Deviant muffins! :heart:

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.

Primping by MollyFootman
Primping
One more with the retro girdle.  Don't know why this sort of thing has appealed to me lately. :hmm:

Molly's art notes: I am the model and that's the good ol' Render Box II with a figure I'm converting from DAZ Studio format to work in Poser costarring in the background. ;)

My photographer is my dear SO :iconmad-mikhail:.  I took the picture into Photoshop to mess with contrast, sharpness and color balance.  I also added a faint touch of glow and a vignette blur.  I should probably start thinking about how to remove wrinkles...

Matron:  I'll have you know that I have the body of an 18 year old!

Benny:  You should give it back!  You're getting it all wrinkled!!

Retro Repose by MollyFootman
Retro Repose
I've been fascinated with retro swimsuits and body shapers and such lately.  I got me this girdle and decided to do a "Molly is unconscious" picture. ;P  I still wore some shiny tights but added the thigh highs.  I hope you'll enjoy. 

Molly's art notes:  I'm the model.  :iconmad-mikhail: was my photographer.  I took it into Photoshop to mess with the sharpness and color a bit.

Splendid Solitude by MollyFootman
Splendid Solitude
I was in the mood to try something artistic.  The lone black girl dances with her reflection.

Molly's art notes: Set up and rendered in Poser Pro Game Dev using the internal rendering engine, Firefly.  The girl is Monique www.daz3d.com/monique-6 who is based on the Genesis 2 female from DAZ3D.  The outfit is "Let's Get Physical" www.daz3d.com/let-s-get-physic… which is also at DAZ3D; I retextured it pretty extensively, though, wanting shiny tights and leotard for my dancing girl. ;)  The setting is the Dance Studio www.daz3d.com/dance-class-stud… .  I messed a bit with the textures and changed the skydome outside the window to an urban setting. :XD:

One of the things that is distressing about the intertubes is that when you post something it WILL be stolen.  Not maybe... will be.  As I noted in my previous journal entry I see a lot of stuff posted here that is clearly an unaltered screen capture of some TV program or other video obtained by the poster.  A lot of deviants post work in their galleries that seems unlikely to be of their own creation.  In some cases, I can find the original source and it's very clear that the one who posted here did not create what they have shared.

My friend, :iconboundwriter: , drew my attention to an example of one my pictures being shared on another site without my knowledge or permission.  My experience is that those who collect and post other people's work are pretty much unapologetic trolls who will reply to requests to ask permission or take down material that one doesn't wish to be shared in certain venues with: "How you gonna make me?" or "If you don't want you work shared why you post it, stupid?" etc, etc.  

It would really damage my faith in human nature if I thought these vile little toads were the rule.  I think, though, that they are actually pretty rare when you take humanity as a whole.  Thing is, a few such weasels can really pollute the pond for all of us and cause an amazing amount of damage. 

Intellectual property, art, creativity... all difficult to really define at times and certainly difficult to protect when shared in online forums.

One of my own particular points of pride is that nothing... I repeat: NOTHING... that I use in my Poser work has been illegally acquired.  I am a patron of the arts and a learning artist.  I have nothing but disdain for thieving rodents.

Rant over.  The question remains: what to do about unapologetic pilferers of the work of others?

Teh Mollz wishes she knew the answer to that one. :roll:

Thank you for bringing it to my attention, Jerry.  I would like the poster to have at least asked.  Let me know how it works out.  Truly, I don't much like people sharing my pictures in public forums without my knowledge but I recognize it is a common practice.  Goodness knows there is TONS of inappropriately shared work here on DA, too.  So yes, tell the poster they should be asking permission to use the work of others.... :hmm:
