If you are an artist who cares about environmental issues then this may be a contest to enter.

DAZ released my Naturally Real V7 Iray materials today. I have been very impressed with Iray... very fast, and capable of a high degree of realism.
<p>A highly optimized set of Iray materials for Victoria 7. These materials will bring Victoria 7 to life like never before, adding greater realism and a natural charm to the character. Use her for an athletic girl, a warrior woman, or just your favorite

We are always edging closer to the brave new world. Post-human is something I am likely to see in my lifetime... not sure how I feel about all of that.
We now have the power to easily alter DNA. It could eliminate disease. It could get really out of hand.

This contest submission was painted by Rob Richardson, who is a former student, collaborator (from comics), and buddy of mine. He is a good guy, who has worked very hard on his craft, and I am hopeful he will continue to get himself "out there" as a fantasy illustrator.

Hi Sol Sims,

I am glad you are enjoying them :)

Also, don't miss out on watching the Brush Extended course, which is included as part of the subscription.

Unfortunately, YouTube doesn't allow downloading as part of the subscription terms. So the videos are only available online. That said, I will leave them up as long as there are subscribers to the channel.
