      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

Did a wee bit of work on the Shackelton MR1A this morning whilst Dino sat there and gave me dirty looks so when the Shackelton was drying I turned my attention to her.

I'm trying out a type of modelling clay to sculpt the feet so I'll let you know how that goes.

 

May I seek your advice please?

 

Is the line where the black meets the green too defined?

On real skin would it be a bit more blurred?

Should I feather the edges?

Thanks

Richard

Nobody answering my questions?

The model clay I was using is called 'DAS' and I am pleased to say that it has worked fine.

I was up the loft earlier pottering about and gave her claws a wee bit of a makeover.The stuff sands nicely.

The clay seems to have stuck well to the leather skin. Wish I had tried this first instead of wasting loads of Milliput!

Didn't bother with photos as nothing much to see yet.

Life still interfering with modelling so don't hold your breath waiting for the next update.

ok, I'll suggest;

yes to all three

eyes; have you done them yet?

I would paint the eyeball pale yellow, put a dark green ovalish centre and within that a yellow or orange vertical line [a bit like a crocodile eye]

I would definitely soften the edges of the colours.

Started on them. Have made lots of little discs and ovals using PVA drops on glass. I like the idea of the croc type eyes so we'll see how that goes.

 

Despite all the repairs to the ceiling (really a rebuild after asbestos removal) being finished I haven't had much time to do any modelling due to family and work stuff getting in the way.

Having had a superb input from WyvernS4 her colour may yet change.

Hopefully she'll be ready by Christmas (No pressure then only 239 days!):smile:
