Katt VOM-Feb2012
« on: January 08, 2012, 07:18:13 PM »
Katt is one of our very talented vendors. She has many items in our store with more to come. She textures not only characters but clothing also and is also known as EagleWing Creations and DivaKatt at Rosity...lol

We hope to see much more from her on the creativity side too. Katt has been with us since the beginning of our store and we are very fortunate to have her as not only a vendor but Head Mod for the Attic forum too.

So now without delays let's see what Katt has to tell us.


1. A bit about your family, if you please....just what you feel comfortable telling folks.

a) Where do you live  

I live in the downtown area of a city a few hours east of Toronto, called Kingston .... in Canada ...

b) Married, children, pets...
I am not married .... the only kids I have are the ones I watch for their parents on occasion .... and as for pets, I have recently got 2 small crested geckos ... they don't bite, are very quiet and low maintenance for upkeep, and they are named Elvis and George. There are pics on my FaceBook for those who want to see them.  

c) How long have you been creating
I started playing in poser in 2005, and started creating in 2008 with my first creations being a texture set for Aery Soul's Elven Strapped (it works with their V4 version too btw) and my Aurilea for V3 ... she is a bit of an Amazon though ... LOL


2. What do you use as programs when you create.
When I am playing Poser God (LOL) I use Poser 8, Photoshop CS4, PaintShop Pro XII, UV Mapper Classic for clothing maps, INJ Pose Builder, Injection Magic, and ShaderWorks Library .... and of course my coffee maker!


3. Approximately how long does it take you to create something both textures and actual models (if any).
The time needed for creating either character or clothing textures depends on how complex the outfit is and how complex I get with the figure textures. I am currently trying to up my skills in figures, so I am trying to use more nodes and the such to make better skin results. There are simpler ways to do this, but I want to go in a direction that will make me learn more. With this though, there is a risk of making something not compatible in DAZ, but I am hoping to be able to provide some additional files for DAZ use that are more simpler yet give as close to the same effect as the Poser version files. This also applies for clothing textures, of course.


4. Are you self taught?
A lot of what I have learned has come about between seeing how others have created their things, research for tutorials and some great friends who help me in many ways. Its not hard, it just takes making that first step towards trying.


5. What is your favorite program and why?  
My favorite program would have to be Poser. It has come a long way since version 5, and can do so much now. When you add in other programs like Photoshop and PaintShop, or even the bigger ones like Blender, Maya, ZBrush ... you can go SO much further!


6. Advice for new creators?
My advice for new creators ... just go for it! Start simple ... make stuff for just yourself to use ... and then grow from there. Take chances ... learn new things ... and remember you can always ask others for help when you get stuck! You never know where that first step can lead you ...
