Princess Peach Pinup by DarklordIIID
Princess Peach Pinup
Hey everyone! I recently got a molar removed due to the fact that many years prior a peanut M&M caused it to...well shatter, if I'm honest, and I just put it off and put it off until the wife found a really nice local dental place that does full sedation dentistry.

Anyway you don't care about that, the point is for several days I was stuck in the living room recovering in a slightly drug addled state with nothing to do but fiddle with my computer. I had the idea to convert Peach's brawl outfit into a pinup style dress the week before and had been drafting how to go about it in my head, so I did it. I'm very pleased with the result. :D

If you like her outfit, I have ideas on how to do this for the other Mario princesses. :) Let me know what you think!

You Wanna Play With Magic? by DarklordIIID
You Wanna Play With Magic?
Got the idea for this while listening to Dark Horse quite a while back. This one went through so many revisions. I initially tried to render this one in sort of a pseudo Citadel room, something like the walk-around area from Mass Effect 1. Just wasn't working out, I couldn't get the lighting to do what I wanted and my citadel bulkheads just looked like crap. :lol:

Eventually I settled on the fish tank in Shepard's cabin to make it happen, and wasn't disappointed. There was still a ton of post work in this one, though, to get the overall look correct. Much more than usual for me anyway.

But there you have it. :) Enjoy!

Hyrule Underworld by DarklordIIID

Link making his way through some unnamed dungeon.

Had a lot of fun making this, though it was the first one I did after a software upgrade that I eventually had to scrap because it wasn't working properly, hence the smaller than usual render size.

Thanks for looking!

Don't worry, I'm still not going anywhere. :)

Basically, I've come to the realization that I'm working too hard. I work a regular job, then come home and work on commission projects, and I do this 5 days a week until the weekend, during which I continue working. I've recognized the fact that while this has made me relatively successful, it's also deprived me of literally all my personal free time. I barely play games anymore, it's either at Work or at home, working. 

In the spirit of that, two things are changing around here...

1. Submissions will be quite a bit less frequent. As I go on, I try and meet the same 4-5 deviation per month rate. I routinely fail at that, which makes me feel bad, which demotivates me, which makes me fail, and so on, until i resolve to break it and turn out occasionally very sub-par work. It's been going on too long, and stops. From now on I'll be shooting for a deviation every 2-3 weeks. That will be the goal, not a guarantee.

2. Commissions for the moment are closed. I need to get back to making my own work again and rediscover my own inspirations. To that end, I've gotten the Dolphin emulator running Twilight Princess at 1080p, which is quite a sight. 

That's about it. I love you guys and I love this place so much, I wish I could sit around all day making cool pictures for ya, you have no idea how much I miss that. But it isn't coming back, and it's time to accept that.

Thanks everyone for your continued support.

Happy Halloween 2014 by DarklordIIID
Happy Halloween 2014
Ilia's come out for Halloween to give us a nice pose in her pumpkin patch! :)

This is the stuff I love to do; non-nude pinup stuff. Got the idea from a magazine cover I saw randomly in a store (honestly can't remember which.)

Also of note, and the reason this is so late, this is the first deviation I've done in my new standard, 5K, 5120 x 2880. So that's cool. :D

Thanks for looking!

I don't think this merits a Mature tag, if you think otherwise let me know.

Here is something you will want to see (be wary that most of the words are in the dragon language according to the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.)

I saw all those pieces long before you put your valentine things over them. (One of them I commissioned)

That's not your art, by the way. And seeing as you didn't make the art underneath, I can't help but wonder how much of the afterwork you also didn't make.

That's not cool dude.
