The DAZ Site has gone down for maintenance at 11:38pm MDT, and maintenance is expected to last at least an hour.

Looks like a website to me, maybe a bit too bright. I like darker backgrounds myself because they are easier on the eyes but its just a personal taste I guess.

i like it. It's much easier to navigate than before. and it doesn't feel like content or software are prioritized over the other. eveything is right there at the top of the page, equally visible and accessible. Now if they can keep the naked elves from being plastered on the mainpage, i will be tempted to visit from time to time...

There are a few things they need to iron out.

I don't care much about the DAZ makeover quite frankly. All I care about is the release of C6.:shiny: But I have to say I like it better than the previous one. Truth is, I like seeing beautiful 3d models in there. Someday I would like to do serious modeling on women's faces. I prefer smooth shiny untextured things. It represents modernity. I don't care much about modeling monsters, monkeys, mutilated faces and such. I'm sick of seeing them in the Zbrush site. To me they represent doom and gloom and stone age. If I have to do full-blast organic modeling, I'd chose the domesticated which represents peace, abundance, tranquility, nature. Roosters, cats, dogs...

You go! Sketchy... I agree 199% (make it 200%) Surely there must be better things to do for those folks with so much talent -- seems a waste. Of course they can do what they want. :flower:

Very postive development!

I think DAZ 3D has done a supurb job on their new website. I love it and find it encouraging and appreciate their effort. IMHO DAZ has shown they can listen to customer suggestions.

Kudos to DAZ 3D and thanks,

personally i quite like the new look, however its havng serious side effects to members at other sites it seems.
serious headaches, temporary blindness, actual physical pain.
i was there for 3 hours today ,didnt experience any of those and i actually do have light sensitive eyes due to a medical condition.

Hi Stu,

3 hours? You have a high threshold for pain. I spent 20 minutes and felt like hanging myself in the basement. Carrara and Hex forums have been very slow as of late there it seems as well, which may or may not be a bad thing. Not sure if I should try and sell content or open a clinic, a lot of emotional turbulence in 3D-land. :(

I think they did a pretty nice job too fwiw, but I never really cared as much as a lot of people one way or the other. It's not the color of the site that makes it shine, its the peeps. :happy:

Long live the loop!

that is the yin and the yang.

if nobody makes sticky monsters and other hideous things, you will not be able to appriciate the opposite... tranquility, nature. Roosters, cats, dogs etc ...no ?:)
BTW, i'am not a fan of sticky monsters lol

If the "yin" is real life, death, cancer, deformity, alzheimers, murder, hurricanes, 911 and terrorist cowards with bombs that kill children and non-combatants.
Then the "yang" would be the opposite

If an artist is going to create a fantasy why not do something original (not just repeat what life dishes out). Why not produce something to lift the spirit not add more to deflate it.

If you want carnage and blood stuff, ride with the paramedics or go into combat. If you want to see putrifying flesh riddled with maggots, drive down the highway until you find some road-kill. All of that is very common... all around... and art is, by definition:
art:–noun 1. the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance. - - dictionary.com

cre·ate: 1. to cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not made by ordinary processes.....
7. to do something creative or constructive. - - dictionary.com

Do something worthwhile with your time and your art... contribute something that adds, not that tears down... if nothing more than something that makes people laugh or feel compassion

This is one of those subjects that has a gazillion opinions... but this section of the forum does say "free talking is here"

I'am ok with you, like i said i'am not for sticky monsters or other " yin" stuff.
I do not want to reproduce what these insane humanity do in real life .
take a look at my gallerty, my art is inspired by the beauty of nature and what is good in the human heart and spirit ...

and i think , we all here in this forum are working to produce something to lift the spirit...

art is subjective Nate, as a commercial illustrator im sure you will appreciate that.:)
one persons Yin is anothers Yang. it always personal preference that determines which is art or which isnt.
please feel free to disagree or agree.
this is a public discussion forum:happy:

How can "art" be defined by any set of words? that is the whole joke. A dictionary must attempt to define the word "art" but can never define something so abtract that it has a different meaning to each person. Lucky for me, nothing which i do qualifies as art :shiny: !!!

I am not beautiful, I am art :p... On a related note (by "related" i mean it is WAY off-topic) this video is kind of funny. And from my experience working with young designers, it's not that far from the truth. Luckily they act like this only when they graduate design school... then reality stikes :w00t:

I don't disagree with any of the comments.
Art is really subjective.
Met a lady once who was getting a lot of publicity for her art... created by flying over a huge canvas in a cow pasture - then trimmed her canvas to get the right composition. For real! Then there were the canvases painted by worms squiggling around in paint.
I blew my nose earlier today. I'm thinking about framing the tissue... I might be the next Picasso?
(The tissues used to me more colorful back when I painted with an airbrush... blues, purples... very interesting. :w00t: )

Used to see them at the dog track in Miami... always outran the pups.
Guess you need to plan on something else for lunch, cause you'd never catch him anyway.

I guess I don't spend enough time at the DAZ sites to get eye problems... take a look every now and then to see if any new updates.
