I liked it.

The world isn't depressing, the universe isn't hell bent on seeing Earth destroyed. The crew isn't looking the get all, end all, to save humanity from the ultra, evil, epic, vile destructive villain.

It's not a comedy as most would think. Fox sold it as such but anyone who watched the Comic-con interviews would know it's a scifi drama with a bit of fun. Sit back, look at it and realize the truth...

You've been entertained, you smiled, you enjoyed the jokes; low brow to intellectual...they are all there. It's what scifi has been looking for, for a long time.  Some fun.

And it has seat belts....oh....

AND IT WON'T COST YOU A DIME TO WATCH AFTER EPISODE 1.

Powerpose.
For those that use it...Fantastic! I'm just letting everyone know. I'm stepping away and letting Daz, the moderators, and fan boys and girls show if Daz really will make good on it's work of creating working templates for the plugin... For all the figures since some of them don't work...Especially Genesis 3!  How in God's name could they even release the update knowing how effed up the product was with their own products? Especially one so close to still being active...there is still products being released for it!  Marketing ploy?  Bravo...but heads up...it's not working....G3 is still actively selling!  

Time will tell if Daz gets the point.

For anyone who's interested....if you like...Please take what I've done and run with it...that has always been my policy. Even with Daz so they would include my updates with Studio for the last 4-5 years.

Happy Futzing.

As some will know I was working in Japan from Thanksgiving to Valentine's Day.
Well I was recalled back and took over a project due to my the guy I replaced being injured, then the project suffered an ungodly number of delays but as things are, it's done. I'm done.
I'm going on vacation tomorrow, meaning no tech, no internet, no phone. 

Peace. Looking forward to it.

What will I render next...when I get back...... Maybe?


Dale? or Princess Aura (16:00 minute mark)?  Villains were sexy too!

Nothing personal, I just got tired to submitting to groups. Every group has so many specific rules I kind of got burned out so I'm down to just a few I drop in on.
But if you think my image is worth adding to your group or groups, I won't say no except in some very rare cases.

It's really not my thing as most people who've visited my gallery know.
But, if you don't push the boundaries and try new things, how will you know if you can accomplish it especially in my line of graphic novels where all things are pretty much done.
I have some strict rules so it may be pretty tame, sorry but here goes.

So...My next two images will be Damsels in Peril then back to the hot stuff.

So work had me living in Japan since last October until just a couple of weeks ago and in that time I've had to settle in, reformat a computer ( I don't think it liked being left along for so long and was acting up).

Well I'm back as playing with new shaders for figures and looks.

Hope ya'll like them.

Next Mirror Universe Graphic Novel

Tue Nov 1, 2016, 10:31 PM
Coming out tomorrow.
Plus I'm tired of seeing that art theft crap...ranks up there with phone calls about voting or watching TV and every other ad.   'I endorse this ad.'  
Wish I could fast forward to 9 november so I don't have to listen to any of it.
No the world won't end...People have been saying that since the dark ages. so sit back, and wait till tomorrow, the graphic novel is coming out

and for those that need a refresher.

And no I don't care about the number of fav's or comments.  I'm only doing this for the enjoyment of story telling.

We've turned the corner, we're introducing characters for the grand finale.

So what am I doing?

Fri Oct 7, 2016, 9:39 PM
I'll admit it, I've been quite.

well, I've been busy.

Not just real life work  and thank fully my project is done. 
On to my next massive project...in two months.
just need some time to psyche my self up for it.

so in the mean time, I'm busy with other less tasking things.

besides rendering, I'm also writing a lot.
Ripple Effect and Splash Effect were written some 3 to 4 years ago and need to be closed out, so I'm writing Tsunami effect, a kind of scifi space lesbian adventure. I'm now around 585 pages.

Santa's Daughter is on sale and doing well and I expect to have it up on Amazon here in the next few weeks with it's sequel New Years Wedding. Valentine's Day and Victoria Day are both in the writing stages.

So...renders....you want to see pictures....
pdsmith.deviantart.com/gallery… first nine renders are what I'm working on at this moment.

enjoy.

LDStudio's Graphic novel - it's up!

Mon Aug 22, 2016, 5:23 PM
Well it's live.

CFS AEGIS - Stellar Passions

I can't give it's website due to the adult nature of the website. Note me or :iconshadowhawkone:, and we'll link you to it.

But, the story is about The Captain of CFS AEGIS.  She has feelings for her science officer but her best friend; a childhood friend/ship's nurse appears to have started to make some moves on the science officer, but while that happens, something sinister has happened to the crew. And the ship has gone missing!

~~~~~~~~
Why did 4 friends create LDStudio and this series?
It's simple. our answer for the current military scifi series that has flopped with the fans.

The basics...
No uniforms! each ship's uniform is custom to it's purpose!
comdevice is a collar/neck device like what you see here : Captain Kora - mini comic potential? (toon style) by PDSmith
Rank is denoted by any tiara, eye's off the neck and boobs!
Captain:  Gold frame   Gold gem
Commander :Silver frame  Ruby gem
LCdr : Silver Frame Green Gem
Lt : Silver Frame Pink Gem
LTjg : Silver Frame Blue gem
Ensign : Silver frame Purple Gem

Good girls?  The Confederacy.
Bad Girls?  The Alliance  as run by 'The slugs' a long lived race of people.

There are no men.  None.  Nada. zip.  Dead! Gone for the last 300 years!
Standby for more on that!

All ships are CFS <name>   no damn letters!  Number codes to come.

Races; as currently known.
Human
Altai (Pointy eared pink hair slender alien, (black hair?..yuck! boring! pink and purple!)
Alpha: blue skin, black hair, silver eyes
Centauri: green skin, black hair. a calm, quiet and spiritual race. Human's and Centauri claim each other as sisters.

no half breeds, scifi has way to much as it is! to be explained later....

More to come.

I'm not going to bog this down.  this is a community project.

LDStudio is keeping this series as simple as dang possible!

have fun.

Pink and Purple are in, tan and brown are out!

Still a Scifi fan....however.

Sat Jun 25, 2016, 3:58 PM
I'm still a scifi fan at heart and the rank structure of the Navy in space still appeals.

but my heart and mind are tested when stupidity takes the drivers seat.

the 10 rules for fanfilms.
I barely watch the fanfilms...the ten rules don't bother me.
but this is one step away from what I do.
Fanfiction.

And that does bother me.

CBS/Paramount lost in the courtroom: the Uniforms. pointy eared aliens, pretty much everything they did...they lost. the hardest hit was the klingon language which I think to some extent is still going on. but instead of a grace full mediation, this was a temper tantrum that like an avalanche will roll and destroy everything in its path.

When the franchise was pretty much dead for so long, the fan films and fanfiction kept it going. 

Now the fanfilms are being killed off. there is no denying this sandbox temper tantrum's sole purpose was to kill one entity with it's 10 rules. It did.  Congratulations CBS/Paramount...but like a poorly timed military strike there was collateral damage and negative reaction...not the way to go into the 50th Anniversary.

The avalanche is still rolling.

Where will it end....

Will it end?

Found a file sent to me by GeorgeHaz.

the same gentleman that did the awesome shader pack for the 3delight metal pack over at sharecg, well in the 'data' folder were a few files.  in the that folder must have been just the right things given they were 5 or so years old, they must have over wrote some corrupt files because everything is back to normal!

Oh....and I still haven't heard from DAZ if they were going to help me yet.
Right now DAZ and I are in a holding pattern. Their program has gone from stable and workable to totally hosed!  I submitted a trouble call and got a single of message of 'we'll get back to you'  aka your project, no matter how valuable ($,$$$.$$) it is, doesn't matter to us and you'll have to wait greater that 24 hours, not even a suggestion. Atrocious!  Trust me in my line of work...waiting 24 hours...people sometimes die!

The problem is, none of the textures will load unless I manually load them. Not one previously saved image will load properly...they are dead, useless, and considering how complex my scenes are,  loading, and then doing it all over again the next day is un-fricking believable!

I've done the following.
1) Deleted Studio and relaoded.  Same thing.
2) Delteted Studio, deleted all mention of DAZ from the registry, appdata roaming, common files, and program directories then reloaded. Same thing.
3) Delteted Studio, did the same thing and manually loaded Studio with the exe file.  Same thing.
4) Come here looking for help.

System is Studio 4.9.1.30 
Windows 7
Nvidia 960
16gb ram
4Tb Drive
System Mechanic ran on registry except for registry defrag, Daz has been told of the problem but has done nothing to work with Iolo to assist in fixing this (3 years running now.)

So if anyone has an idea, please help, I'd like to get back on track.

Chosen to Describe an OC :Kimberly Knight

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 11, 2016, 6:40 PM

1: Full name: Kimberly Katherine Knight.

2: Physical: Due to certain genetic manipulation and injection with B.O.R.G. (Bio-Organism Regenerative Gene) nanites a reward for saving the life of The White Star Kristen McAlley. She will physically appear 23 years old until she is roughly 215 years old (when the nanites are expected to shut down). She had died her hair white to separate herself from her naturally brown hair, but prior to being injected with the Naneties she made the single vane request of white/silver hair. Her hair is permanently white/silver.

3: Kimberly Knight grew up in one of the richest families on planet Edo. She had everything and anything she wanted as a child and was even exempted from the Hetaera draft of her people. A program some saw as Edo’s being slaves to the Empire, on the contrary she said it was her patriotic duty to serve the Emperor and further his goals.

4: At the time of Empress Howard taking office, Kimberly Knight had shown herself to be less than average in most of her schooling. The one aspect she was without peer; was her ability to use swords and her intuition. On thirteen occasions she weeded out traitors to the Emperor and school policies. That being the only reason she was kept enrolled. Her dedication to her cause and Empire’s needs are unparalleled.

5: Her two blades are unique unto themselves. They are gifts from the Emperor’s  Office of Loyalty. Only one other Edo has ever been granted such gift. The Edo Angela; assigned to The White Star Kristen McAlley.  Kimberly Knight’s ability and skill with her blades are extraordinary and heavily documents as well as her loyalty.

6: Assignment as Hetaera. Kimberly Knight was selected by her current owner. Despite horrific physically changes done to her owner (Once human, she is now a hybrid Human and Orion cross). Kimberly Knight was granted in writing of Empress Howard and in person by The Hand; Dianna Troi, the option to peacefully terminate her owner, a process that would then require her to take her own life. Kimberly Knight has instead stood strong and is a model to all Hetaera of her commitment to duty and oath, her owner was personally selected by the White Star Kristen McAlley to succeed her upon her departure for the ill-fated mission. Her owner’s battle plans and organization are seen as only matched by the White Star herself…’those teachings and plans benefit the Empire no matter the body it houses it’ is Kimberly Knights reason for allowing the Hybrid to live. ‘I will terminate her when those plans are no longer useful or we are betrayed.”

7: Inquires and observations have been made and noted. Upon her entry into the Hetaera program; she has been celibate. She gives no indication of her orientation and it has been expressed many times she and her owner have not engaged in expected conduct. Given this unusual revelation, many wonder how Kimberly Knights owner is able to sate her hybrid sexual needs. If the owner were to have sex with anyone outside of Kimberly Knight; Kimberly Knight would be within rights to slay her owner and the lover and not be held accountable or required to take her own life. Many suspect Kimberly Knight remains pure to protect not just her but the society under Empress Howard of being tainted by such a hybrid’s actions, for that and her skills with her blades and ability to seek out traitors’ Kimberly Knight’s name is spoken with reverence and respect. It is also why no one ever speaks her name as just Kimberly…her very name invokes fear from the highest ranking members of the Imperial government to the lowest citizen.

8: Quote: Be Polite, Be Professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
