    well i was looking at my arsenal of rendering programs and i thought wait.....i remember a few ppl on TPU ahd render programs while i was flexing my card so i thought i know we have a wallpaper thread and i know we can go to devian art or cognative distortion but what about a thread dedicated to the artists of TPU? what about instead of other sites we make some of our own from our own users?..i think this would be really fun what we'll do is post what progs we have..what ones we used for the pic and then post the pic...then other ppl can download it if they wish..post their own or tell you what they'd like to see/change about your own...so ill start (i also figure we can help each other out show them how to use the program give pointers settings etc..)

    Please use this lay out when posting a picture list programs owned followed by the program used to make the picture followed by the picture.

    I have the following programs

    Poser 7
    Cinema 4D
    Lightwave 9
    3D StudioMax 9
    Bryce 3d 6.1
    Macromedia studio 8
    Adobe Photoshop CS3
    DAZ studio 6


    this one was made with bryce.....im going to try and make the clouds and waves more defined but this is what i have so far....

    ^ Yeah Terragen has a very steep learning curve, I joined the terragen group and they have tons of tips tutorials, and you can ask your own questions; So it makes the experience much easier.
    Terragen 1 is much easier to get a result than with 2.

    I need to get back to actually creating things

    not sure what your talking about...dev art like devian art? well klinda its kinda like the photoshop clubhouse really pretty pics but more geared to 3D render progs but not limited too and kinda like a support syndicate too we'll help each other with the progs settings etc....i know theirs a photoshop club house that could encompass this but i kinda wanted them to stay seperate as IMO they are diff.

    I was more referring to an off site thing.

    Im not sure, but deviantart MAY (not sure) have some sort of area where you can create a "channel" for different users to post their art and comment on the art of others in that channel.

    That would be a good idea IMO, since in a forum based sort of thing, the artworks will be lost within a whole pile of peoples posts. Whereas on another site the artworks would remain the central object of the clubhouse.

    Btw - PS Clubhouse has been dead for ages anyway, so they'd have to be seperate regardless LOL....I stopped using photoshop for a long while....
