  1. This one? https://4f-creations.com/site/forum/index.php?/topic/172-increadible-tiny-waist-tv-commercial-1061/
  2. Good to see you found your way back! I think I must have that file somewhere (digital hoarder as I am). Will take a bit to find though. I'll see what I can do.
  3. Thank you! I'm honored in the even so slightest to (maybe) have contributed a tiny bit in such a great project! Thank you for sharing this. Welcome back! 21 years and lots of changes later, I'm a bit surprised myself I'm still here . On to the next 21! Thank you and you too, welcome back! Hi Wade! Yes things are stable at the moment so I can spend more time on the creative parts of life. Glad you like the website. Was a bit of a gamble to place everything in a forum at first but it freed me of so much .HTML, .PHP, .CSS, website (in)compatibility and whatnot hassle I endured over the past 19-20 years, I really feel I finally build my home on the internets. Cheers! You and everybody else, thank you for taking the time to write a little bit. Much appreciated!
  4. Welcome! Oh, I remember those times all too well. Had to tell everybody they could not make a phone call for the next 20-30 minutes because I was send an 2 MB email attachment. Welcome you too! Hotbot... I think I remember that one, no gugle overlords, the internet felt empty at times.
  5. No need to say your not a Cylon anymore, it's all handled in the back these days. Welcome back! Yeah, I keep the price low to keep the pressure to create new images low. Not that I'm siting on my hands but there are times my health gets in my way or images take way much longer to reach the finishing line. This way I don't feel (too much) guilty if I don't deliver within a 'X' amount of time and customers don't have to get upset, it's only 7.50 for the first year (5 after that if you choose so).
  6. Hi John, nice to see you back! Revamped the site to have my hands (largely) free from creating HTML/PHP docs myself, which is a huge time saver. I might consider an update to 'BST', there are a few things that could be I feel better.
  7. Welcome back Wilko! Hi you too! Hi DMFO, You're welcome. Happy to be of some inspiration for you. And yes it all comes own to practice, practice and practice (and a little bit being able to criticize your own work).
  8. Getting an headache. Trying for weeks now to add another payment option to the forum. A free version of Verotel billing showed up during my vacation but it needs to be integrated into the 4forum and the only way that can be done is through a +200.- bucks aMember Pro script. 

    Just had it installed and it reads: Invision is not configured to use MySQL. Can't be integrated 

    Not sure if that can be fixed or I'm going to have to ask my money back and start sulking in a corner. :blush2:

  9. When something comes out of the render and you think, 'meh' (way too sharp reflections), you fix it with a 10 pixel wide brush which equals to roughly 2 hours work on a 1700 x 500 pixel wide surface.


    Smudge smudge, wish I had a proper latex shader for C4D. :drop:

  10. Not really have a spider phobia but... this animated .png file I made that keeps running in the background while I'm working on a new "IE" chapter creeps me out.


  11. New 4Forum mail address.

    Every so now and then I send out a bulk mail to inform people about any new updates to this site. I actively try to avoid it becoming spam as I too loath spam so it’s only when there’s something really new or important. The problem was that the forum software used this website’s host mail system which, because of spam, doesn’t allow any more messages to be send then 130 per hour. The bulk mail system pushes everything out at once and any attempt in the past month’s to spread out the load like 10 mails per 10 minutes failed. It meant that a lot of mails send out bounced back to my “rikof” mailbox, where I then (in a cumbersome way) manually had to copy and paste the bounced email addresses into a new global addressed (Hi there, instead of Hi your_forum_nickname), email and resend my message. I was suggested at some point “to pick a new mail host” but since I knew nothing about CNAME’s, type’s, Value’s, DNS records, DKIM, bouncing domains and what not, I let it be the way it was. Today though I know a little bit (very little bit) more about these things and after 3 weeks of struggling I’m happy to say that this forum now uses a new email host and since it’s first message landed in my spam folder it’s a good idea to inform you about just that. TLDR: If you have your forum preferences set to receive mail from me and/or this forum keep an eye on your spam folder or make sure to allow (4forum)at(email(dot)4f-creations(dot)com) Just remove all the “()”, change “at” to @ and “dot” to an actual “.” My old “rikof” address still remains active, only mails sent from 4Forum will use the new address.
  12. uohhhhh.... Don't get me started on lost passwords! I lost like 60% of mine when I moved my "stuff" from one Mac to an other and something went bump in the night a few weeks ago. You've got love those places that let you change your password only if you know your old one, which.... you.... lost. As for lost groups, maybe you can start a new one here, like Bumblebee is already been doing in the club section?
  13. Hi there and welcome! Talking about Yoko Tsuno, I've been working a bit on one of the iconic Vinean ships. It was a whole big lot more difficult then I thought. So I'm thinking a bit about a landings base scene bit from the '3 suns of Vinea'.
