So im a member at this forum called Darkscarab, DS is website and a forum for those of us who enjoys Blender.
As it is now its failing, DS lost members and activity real fast, something happened but i have no idea what...

Those of us who are still there try to post every once in a while, but its not easy keeping it up with so few people, so i decided to ask here if any of you feel like joining DS forums, you dont even have to enjoy Blender, but it is an art site so its good if you enjoy art ^^
We need more members, and we need more activity, so it would be awesome if you guys could join up and post your stuff over there, the few people there are good people :P There are no "let me google that for you" answers to your questions and no "that sucks so bad" posts to your art.

The link is: www.darkscarab.com

Hopefully ill see you there! :)

Ok, i havnt been active here in a while. I think im gonna get some images done soon, my work is killing me and my time xD so i cant do much with my spare time :P
However, i have been playing around with blender and gimp even though i havnt done any real images, basically ive been playinig with new renderers and stuff.
I might upload an image soon, if i can get it to look ok that is... -_-

Ive recently picked up my old twitter account thanks to :iconmissbambikins: :P An amazing REAL life sculptor who recently picked up ZBrush 4 and is trying her hand at digital sculpting, please check her DA page and let her know how awesome her sculpts are! :D(especially the skull one ;) )

Also please check out my brothers music, it can be found at iamthedjm.byethost24.com/music… he is really talented and makes really nice tracks, he makes music like progressive house.


That is all..! :)

In case any of you would like to try your hand at Blender 3D, then Dark Scarab is an awesome site, with a bunch of tutorials and the people there are glad to help if they know how, me included ^^ The only downside to the site is the member count... We are only a few active members and we can only post so much.. So i guess this is like advertisement xD Anyway the site is awesome and the people are great, so please do visit and say hi in the forums! :D

If by any chance you guys are wondering why i have not been uploading that many images for a while, its because i got back into 9Dragons, an awesome free MMORPG :P Playing with a friend and my brother. So that kinda takes up lots of the free time i have :P

I was looking through my old work, that was pretty fun, you can actually see that i have improved :D
If anyone wanna check out a tiny bit of my work up untill recently follow this link:
www.sweblend.se/forum/viewtopi…
Thats a swedish forum, but just click the numbers (should be 1-14) to get to the next page, the first images are from when i started with blender.

Beeing up all night makes you tired, think about that the next time you dont want to stop messing around in GIMP and Blender ^^

With that said, i think im gonna rest a cpl of minutes or sleep a cpl of hours.. we will see :P
Heres a couple of great links for you to visit if you need help, tutorials or any other info. Or if you feel you can help others ^^
Most are 3D sites, but the textures etc can be used in 2D aswell.

some of the links will be weird :S i dont feel like fixing it atm xD so just skip those that wont work ^^
