Q:Hi kaz, Will the deck of cards you are creating be available for Christmas?
nah it’s really on hiatus, as I have no idea if I’m interested in finding out if I can sell each individual one. if a single person declines, I’m screwed out of like 200 hours of work that could have been used on original things I actually can sell without this risk
I might revisit it for fun someday or something but it’s too big for me to spend time on right now without the promise of monetary return
sorry if that makes me sound like an ass but I’m a self-employed artist and this is something I gotta consider
Q:Can you please flood the SL marketplace with more amazingly done original content? I am a snob and ripped mesh causes me to accidentally orbital strike everything, so it warmed my heart when I stumbled upon your shop!
aw gosh thank you so much! yeah there’s tons of ripped crap out there but I’ll just rest happy knowing that these people won’t ever really be game devs outside of SL. lol.
as for the flooding, I’m doing my best >:D one item at a time!
there’s like 739472 layers of alpha textures here and GUESS WHAT
NO ALPHA SORTING PROBLEMS
I changed all my alpha textures to the hard-edged alpha masking mode instead of alpha blending and my life has been changed
Q:It looks like you have concave face at the base of the tail, and if you aren't already, you should use headus uv layout pro to do your uvs. Model looks awesome though :)
good spot on the concave face, you were right. Headus UV Layout Pro huh? I’ve only ever done unwraps by hand but it’s about time I look into plugins and whatnot, at least for this project. thanks for the tip!
cat is happening
he is gonna be a pain in the ass to UV unwrap. and then another pain to texture (see: picture 2)
I’m thinking I won’t add the shoulder fluff because I’m gonna make some armor for him too but IDK leave me some thoughts if you feel like it
I finally updated my portfolio
COOL HUH YEAH
Q:As a fellow cat owner, I was wondering if Hexe does anything extremely cute or unique.
she waits for me to get out of the shower and then showers me with affection :3 also she likes to give me gentle bites on my hands when she’s happy and she does this adorable thing where she puts her front paws on my hand, looks into my eyes for a few moments, and then pushes up against my hand with the whole side of her body (it’s sort of a leap/twist action). also she sleeps with me every night.
the few times she visits my lap, she demands that I look at her and blink back at her while I pet her or else she will freak out and run
Q:do you have any views on trans*/nonbinary gendered people?
I consider myself an ally of trans*/nonbinary gendered people
additionally, people deserve to be judged by their strength of character and not arbitrary social assignments (even with cis people) because assignments are only shorthand for language and should be treated as such, if that makes sense
also I’m queer
