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 pondered this once before in my journal.  It's clear to me that the intent of deviantART is to provide a forum for artists and art critics/watchers.  A lot of the users focus on the concept of DEVIANT and have very sexual and violent themes or seek that out (sometimes finding it where it's not intended).  I guess I'm fine with that, I don't have to look at or follow anything I don't care for.  It DOES bother me, though when people don't respect what an artist or model is trying to accomplish.  I got to thinking about this again because of something that happened to an artist and stock provider:iconcharligal-stock: I watch and am very impressed with.  To learn a bit about it, go here:
EDIT* What the hell is wrong with people?!EDIT* To those asking, yes I've already blocked this user but blocking them still doesn't stop them from being able to view or download my stock
EDIT 2* To those saying I need to lighten up, see the humour in it or 'feel flattered' (as someone noted me earlier), I feel I have every right to be peeved and letting my frustration out now is much better for me in the long run.
Just saying..
I am aware that this person is a troll but this sort of thing isn't just limited to one troll here or there writing something extremely inappropriate in my comments. In fact I get daily comments written on my stock images such as 'nice tits, this is one fine piece of ass' etc. that are 'supposed' to be compliments but only serve as demeaning, disrespectful ways to objectify myself and my stock. This isn't ok, my stock isn't here for that. I don't care how you think my tits look, I don't care what you think of my ass.... my stock is here to help ar

I've gotten some kind of rude comments at times and also some unusual requests about using my pictures.  My pictures aren't provided for stock as such, but I'm usually OK with people using my pictures for themes that are no more sexualized or humiliating than the perils in them already depict.

I sometimes wonder about myself, really. I mean, I find peril themes, pictures and stories very exciting; actually a bit erotic (maybe more than a bit sometimes).  I think erotic themes are fine in art but I admit I'm a little out there sometimes.  Although there was a point in my life where sharing such stuff was done to validate my sensibilities and decrease my sense that I'm a sick puppy alone in the world, anymore I've gotten very interested in the ART part and less so the DEVIANT part.

So when I get comments I'm fine with people telling me I'm sexy and such when I decide to model (which is getting rarer and rarer as I get older and older).  I'm also fine with people getting excited about themes including violence and peril in my stories.  But what really excites me anymore is when someone remarks upon a technique I'm trying or points me at a good tutorial or offers some really helpful constructive criticism.

I don't quite know how I want to end this journal entry.  I'm almost done with the next page in "NightFall: Shocked" and will probably get it up later today or tomorrow (depending on how hard the princelings run me here:roll:).  When I look at my little unscientific survey in the other column on my main site page I see that I should probably delete Poser from the Render Box II and put on some tights and a leotard and pose, pose, pose myself.  Thing is, I really want to be an artist or something.  Heaven help us all.... :giggle:

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.

I saw your comparisons images come up on a search of LuxRender images and read you where having abit of a problem with Lux

i'd be happy to help if you would like to take the time o 3 o/

while I use Daz, which is with Reality 2 plug in for LuxRender
I'm sure I can help get some issues looked at 

its a shame to see such Poser talent not use LuxRender

Thank you!  I sure do need some pointers about materials as Reality 3 fails to convert everything automatically... the material room in Poser is really complex and subtle so I'm not surprised. :roll: I wind up using the Firefly engine because I've got so much of that better figured out but plainly Lux is worth learning.  I'll probably "note" you in a week or two with a few questions.:XD:

Again I'm using Daz with Reality 2

So I'm limited to simple items as far as materials such as Diffuse, Specular, Bump, Normal, and displacement maps

but I'll say never rely on Reality to convert everything all the time.
You should know what you are wanting out of LuxRender, and input that into Reality.

I also stream so if you ever to schedule a time to come in and let me answer a few questions
we can iron out any problems you have.
o 3 o/ I'm here to help the best I can

I love it when people have the confidence and courage to put themselves out there, without insecurities of their own bodies.  So, yes, I proudly join the group of people that :+devwatch: you for you! ;)

Thank you, my dear.  I don't model much anymore but it's nice to hear such about the pictures that I choose to share.  I'm very pleased to have watchers as positive and encouraging as you! :huggle:
