October 2012~Special Issue The following pages are just touching base on Gothic Culture. We all create history, it’s keeping the history origin of that culture from fading is the hard part. From buildings to music, fashion to religion. Each day we are losing something valuable, a reminder of where all of us came from and how much we grew. ~alice

Special October Issue It’s Halloween Month People! I just wanted to touch base on what Gothic and Horror is. And this is just touching the surface. Not everyone is going to like the artwork and/or photos in this issue. It is what it is. Everyone has a right to express themselves “CREATIVILY”, whether that being through fashion, music or thru artistic style and creation, meaning art. People being different and having the comfort in doing so makes the world go around. We all have to live on the same planet, we may be different and disagree with some things, but if we just smile and adjust to letting those people be who they are the easier the world would be to live in. I am talking about artistically adjusting. Art, Music and Fashion changes all the time, which that makes us learn to view things in a different perceptive, different visionary angles and intergraded thoughts. By the way, if people like those people did not create what they did, visual what they saw, imagine what they imaged, what would you wear for Halloween and what would you watch on TV or go see at the movies? There would be no Alien, there would be no Dracula movies, no Frankenstein, and special effects would be non-existent. That would include Star Trek! So what is Halloween? Original known as “All Hallow’s Eve”, is a day/night to celebrate the ones that have passed on. Celebrating that these souls have found their way to the heavens, and then some say that is the only day the dead can walk among the living and to do so freely. A couple days after Halloween is a festival called “Day of the Dead”. The celebration is a gathering of people praying for their lost family members and friends, on the second of November. The first of November is a called the “Day of the Innocents”. This day is to honor the children and infants.

October 2012~Special Issue There are some kids and adults that truly breathe this culture and are very secure in the way the feel about themselves, both inside and out. Some just want to touch the surface of what it will be like to go all out. Halloween has given us that one day for us that can venture out. A time where we can all dress the way you want to. You can be a vampire, you can be a witch, you can be a movie character and the list goes on! With all that being said, having a magazine I need to always find the source, the start of the source. So I dug deep into the internet and found some lightness to what most people would call the dark-side. Germanic People Yes, gothic language has been dated back to the 4th Century. The only surviving evidence of the gothic language was found consists of codices written and commissioned by the Arian Bishop Ulfilas. He was considered the leader of Visigothic Christians. There are five codex’s in Gothic Scriptures that have survived. Codex Argenteus Codex Ambrosianus Codex Gissensis

There is a side to everyone that opens up now and then. For me, that would be gothic, dark art. This does not make me in no way satanic or that I always dress up all in black and wear corsets and high heels or drink blood, perform rituals to the undead or what have you. However, there are some aspects of dark art I do not like and/or do not understand or want to understand. What I am talking about as the artistic side for me. It is expressing an openly creative side to my visions. Everyone has this, everyone has an expressive imagination. You do dream don’t you?

Creatively and through imagination there are some people that come up with the most intriguing costume designs and the most horrid makeup applications. And this stuff I think is so damn cool. Goth can be very extreme, I mean really extreme from partly shaved heads to massive piercing and tattoos. And there is nothing wrong with that, however, there is a lighter side to Goth, just all black, simple. The artistic side of Goth can really entail some darkness, and again this doesn’t mean that person is evil or what have you. Goth art is a beautiful side of someone’s artistic ability. They are defining death as beauty to living as horror. Vampires, spider webs, crosses, skulls, blood, wings, and so much more fill the essences that surround the being of existence within the Goth culture.

Codex Carolinus Codex Vaticanus After the 6th the Gothic language started its falling and German Gothic was more pronounced. Gothic Art His name was Abbot Suger; Born in 1081 he is the one that created the essence of Gothic Architecture. As the variety of different visionaries from architects, from century to century that had passed on the more prominent the structure was set out to be. One decorative piece applied to a building was that of a gargoyle. These were actually used as water spouts. The longer the extension of the neck the farther the water would drop in order to keep the building from sustaining any damage. Gargoyles were said to ward off evil or harmful spirits. Me personally, I think these are the most unique and fantastic creation of artistic style. I love them! Gothic Fashion Gothic again veins off to different varieties of expression. Gothic fashion can be as simple as wearing all black to major piercings and so forth. I think the new Gothic fashion would consist of Steampunk Goth. If I was twenty years younger, this would be my style. Page 3 2012© Green-Fly Media LLC


October 2012~Special Issue Theda Bara born in 1855, her silent screen performances she was known as one of the earliest sex symbols and here femme fatale roles gave her the nickname “The Vamp.”

There is Dark Art which has the blood, stitches, gore, skulls, and vamp-style artistic creations. Steampunk more industrial style with gold, metal, cog gears, hats, goggles, lace and so forth. Punk Goth has more of the piecing, metal, spikes, latex, rubber to different colored hair.

As far as the Gothic fashion, Valerie Steele and expert in the history of style, states this style came from the origin of Victorian mourning. As more designers add their own style, goggles, latex, rubber, metal, skulls for instance, the style still grows.

New Gothic art isn’t always drawn; photo manipulation also has its place in this genre. This is where the box and door is open and gets way outside the box. All I can say is layers and layers to plugin in effects and blending modes can really create some awesome art.

Gothic Music

3D digital art also helps open the door to a variety of artists. 3D modelers can create the clothing for the characters; 2D artists create the skin textures and 3D modelers create original characters. (as seen in gaming characters).

The gothic (punk) style music started in the early 70’s... doesn’t seem that far back does it. Back then band members did not dress the way they do now. From searching on the internet, I wanted to find out who was the first gothic band. My search brought to surface a couple of bands: * Joy Division * Bauhaus * Siouxsie and the Banshees * Love and Rockets As far as I can tell, most of the Gothic style music was born from England/ British flesh. As the years passed on, the more split off the music and fashion became from its origin of birth. Gothic music is how you take it. The music can be operatic to metal, it really depends on the band and how they want their music to be heard as. The newer generation turned gothic into what now branded as the genre acceptance. And with that music the fashion of punk-goth style spread. Regardless of how things inspire us to be creative and inventive, music will always be the force of creation. Dreams and intuitive designs create new ambitions and breathe life into the old. Remember life is what you make, if it is what is in your heart, hold it tight and mold it and let it fly. You are your own dreams.

All this really works together, if the subject is gothic or horror the: Writers; they need art for their cover to their book or magazines. Musicians need art for their cds and clothing to express their style. Movie directors need art for their posters, music for their movie and clothing for their actors. A nice big happy-gothic-horror family.

***** Remember all this art is an expression of one’s imagination. Their own creativity that lets them define an inner connection with something they and I like to express, some artist do this all the time, others like me express on more in October! People that write poetry about dark nights in a corner of the room, songwriters that write songs about love gone bad, concept artist that design gaming characters, screenwriters that create horror movies and sci-fi thrillers, we are all in the world of touching our imagination and seeing how far we can travel. It’s a world of the unknown, an intrigue of ideas that we can process through vision. Keep it peace! ~alice

New Gothic Art As far as the New Gothic Art, from searching on the web, there are veins of this style that reaches to some pretty disturbing artistic style. There is nothing wrong in expressing your views and/or style through art. Look at HR Giger. These artists expressed themselves the only way they knew how. They didn’t care if people judged them, they didn’t care what people said behind their back. It just made them stronger for them to freely express themselves creatively. The most important aspect of all of this is that they believed in themselves. Some gothic art would include anime style, cartoon, and cute little characters that are somewhat whimsy to pretty darn horrid. But that is the expression of Gothic Style. Page 4

Dean McClelland Dean McClelland is a Canadian artist who lives near the Rocky Mountains in the city of Calgary, Alberta. His art reflects his heritage on his mother’s side where his grandfather was a vaudeville magician and his brother carries the tradition on to this day. Growing up with oddities around him he found the ingredients to his style through observing and studying his brother’s art of sideshow. You will find whimsy, humor and quirkiness in his photography which is fused with a sense that not all is wright in this world. With his sideshow manner and slight turned up smile he would welcome you to his unusual Oddities. I remember looking at Deans Gallery over at Renderosity and fell in love with his photographic style. I love the steam punk, Victorian Goth dark style he entails within each of his photographs. I sometimes wonder how he controls all those ideas that pop in his head. How he can take something simple like an open field and turn it into the most intriguing enlighten sense of placement. It is such a creative force of imagination, and that my friend is what he does best. Website: http://www.bigbluebox.ca/ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/DeanMcClellandPhotography

Gothic Photography I love shooting sports, but my true love lies in freestyle photography. Gothic grunge fills my heart with intrigue and lust of creativity. I can see everything that I want to capture just from looking at the person. I can see what style of clothing and where to shoot them. I see all the pose positions and props to make all of this work. But as for now, it’s just a little hobby I do for fun. One of my dreams is to have a studio, an old warehouse, so I can express all my creative thoughts as a photographer. I would have tons of costumes, props and even have an annual party like “Gala Ball” for my closest friends to get all dress up. There would be enough room I could even do music videos! Have both my sisters by my side, Tara in charge of marketing, Debbie in charge of costume designs. Have someone in charge of hair and make-up and have someone as a set and prop designer and someone for the venue coordinator…. Sigh… sadly this is just a dream. Anyway, our neighbor Kristen was so kind to be my model; she was a trooper! I was really was hoping she wouldn’t freak out from what my plan was. She rocked it! I do look forward to working with her again. Photo-manipulation: is the application of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception (in contrast to mere enhancement or correction), through analog or digital means. This has taken photography to the tips of imagination, from what we have today, Computers. The things we can do today are amazing. Plug-ins, special effects are the key to creating a variety of perceptive imagery to deceive the viewer. I know that I am not that great, and there are tons of photographers that have an amazing gallery filled with photography that they transformed. Depending on what you want to create from your photograph you have staring at you and depending on what genre you are going for, this month is horror and gothic, you can just pile on the layers and plug in effects. Add brushes and overlays to create some really interesting artistic visions. It doesn’t have to be all gothic and horror. Photo manipulation can create all sorts of themes. You can transfer your models into mermaids, fairies, robots and so forth. The creation and imagination is endless.

* Please be advised that some photos have been manipulated.

October 2012~Special Issue I think my favorite characters in Horror movies were the creature from the black lagoon and Freddy Krueger. I still can sing the theme song to Nightmare on Elm Street. One two, Freddy’s coming for you. Three, Four better lock your door. Five, six grab your crucifix. Seven, eight going to stay up late. Nine, ten never sleep again. From novels to movies, everything starts as a concept. Someone thinks about either the scenario and build the whole base around that or the character and build the scene around that. Defining each sequence of events for a horror movie, I can imagine must be time consuming and overall exhilarate to see the final cut. Depending on the movie, you have to have a make-up artist. And that makeup artist has to know how to do prosedithics, molds, airbrushing and so forth. If you have had a chance to watch the TV show Face Off, you will know what entails creating a character for a movie or even a TV show, and with all this horror to even sci-fi movies coming out, it is sometimes not an easy task to create something original.

Horror

This is where all these creative people work together and come up with some of the most amazing characters designs. From full featured designs to just a basic slash on the arm, it all comes down to the imagination. What that artist can envision through just having one idea, one concept and bring that character to life. Sometimes I think how the heck these people came up with some of the most intrigue horror characters and concepts. Thrilling!

An emotion experienced in anticipation of some specific pain or danger (usually accompanied by a desire to flee or fight). Okay, how many people didn’t have Frankenstein hanging on their door or on their wall? Or stay up and watch Night Gallery? Questions: What was the first horror movie you saw? What was your favorite horror movie? What was the last horror movie you saw? Who was your favorite horror character? The first horror movie I saw was when Scott our brother took us to go see Grizzly at the Mustang Drive-In; sadly it is not there anymore. That movie really freaked me out seeing that head roll across the screen. Then there was the first Boogey Man. Having sisters makes seeing these movies more memorable, because after seeing that, Debbie put a piece of foil in her eye and Gina put a stocking over her head and waited till I got to the kitchen. NICE! Then there was a time that Tara and I would got to the video store and rent out 5 movies at a time and watch them all day, oh, and those movies were horror movies. It’s a good thing we only rented slasher movies and not ghost movies since our house was haunted!

Joe DiCristofalo I met Joe while searching for local sports photographer to shadow. I wanted so bad to get into shooting sports. Joe had faith in me and taught me so much on how and what to look for when shooting sports. Even though Joe and I are different photographers, we do see things creatively. I like to think that I try to give Joe a different direction in photography, have him see a new way, seeing outside the box and just go as far as you can go. He has never shot like this before and seeing his creative side just flow through his veins was a great ambition to vision for me to see. When I asked him about shooting me and Debbie for this issue and explaining to him what I was doing, he jumped in with both feet. It was a nice break for him to take a free day off, just to play. Thank you, Joe! http://jdicrist.zenfolio.com/

October 2012~Special Issue clothing, props, hair, and so forth. 2D Artist created the skin textures and other materials for clothing. The 3D modelers use programs like ZBrush, 3D studio max, Mojo and so forth. 2D artists use Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop. When you buy the products you need to render in your Poser or Daz, or other applicable programs, you are putting together an image you want people to see. They are like dolls and different characters in box where you create a scene. It can be a sci-fi scene, a horror scene, angelic scene, and mythology and so on. If you want to learn more about 3D art, start small. My biggest mistake is I get so excited on new products that come out; I buy them and never use them. The most important rule is, if I buy this: * What is my purpose for it? * Am I going to use it, or is it going to sit in my runtime forever? Mostly all the 3D/2D marketplaces have wish list, so fill that up and buy when needed. With what 3D has to offer now and those talented modelers that give us the opportunity to create our personal artistic visions for everyone to see, we thank you. You brought us visions, you brought us into the new life like gaming world, and you gave us an imagination. Awesomeness!

3D Digital Art For people that do not know about 3D digital art, here is a little load down. I have been creating artistic renders for over eight years; it is an expensive hobby and time consuming. Depending on what you want to do with 3D, you can make some good money creating models. As far as renders, you can create covers for novels, poster work and so forth. First, you have to have a 3D software program. I use Poser 8 by Smith Micro. There is another type of 3D rendering software from Daz called Daz Studio. Daz created the female and male models, any many other base characters, to use in Poser. With the female and male models, 3D modelers create the

Having this software, your artistic creations can be wild and go as far out of the box as you want. There are tons of genres to choose from, but for this special issue, it’s all about Gothic and Halloween, and we love Horror! There are so many fantastic 3D digital artists in the community where I hang out, either buying or brokering. The galleries are filled with wonderful and creative people. There is so much inducing energy the creative juice just flows from one person to another. That keeps all the artistic style from falling into a pit of emptiness. ~alice

October 2012~Special Issue at the time I felt like I was. I don't anymore. I am what and who I am. Still, I have no plans on changing it. If there was something I could impart onto other artists it would be this: Research. Practice. Be obsessive. Take photos of cement, bark, wood, brick, any textures you can. Notice how shadows play on the ground, on grass, on people. Watch people. Catch expressions, how they stand, how they interact. See how things reflect and light bounces between buildings or structures. Observe EVERYTHING. Fear nothing. Work at something until it works, or it doesn't...just don't give up. Ever. When people tell you it won't work, or it won't fit into the norm, keep going. It's the odd man out that sometimes steps over the boarders of the norm and finds something that makes every moment, every bit of anger and frustration and days of looking at your work and asking yourself why am I doing this to myself....worth it. When you finish that one piece that you've sweated, worried over, and actually woke up thinking on ways of fixing that one little thing that's been bugging you forever it's a feeling like no other. That's art. Not what people think. It's that one moment when you step back and get a feeling of ... "I did that." I am a third generation artist; my mother works in watercolor, pencil and acrylic while my grandfather was mainly oils, ink (pen quill and India ink, he never used a store bought pen for any of his works) and pencil. Both used landscapes, animals and people in real life settings as their basis of artwork pieces while I venture further into fantasy, horror, sci-fi as well as animals, landscapes and portraiture. How long have I been doing this? As soon as my fat little fist could hold a crayon or pencil I've been scribbling on any (and I mean ANY) surface I could get marks on. I ventured into the 3D world I think in 2007 in October when I found Studio 2 when I stumbled onto the Rendo site. I had high hopes of being so much better than I am at this point, but I'm a hobbyist and not a professional.

Thank you Alice!

Dar- A.K.A. Darwins Mishap

I use PoserPro, Studio 4 Pro, Carrara 8 and Photoshop for the digital work, and I also have a conglomerate of supplies here- graphite pencils, colored pencils, markers, India ink and a boat load of quills, pastels, oil pastels and a complete drafter's set from the early fifties from my grandfather that had been passed down to me. All of which I use. I have an affinity for graphite pencils, but since the arthritis has been getting worse I have been considering the digital medium as my favorite lately. People ask about the user name: Well. I'm an oddball, odd man out, freak if you will. No matter what city I'm in, no matter where I go to let loose- I get stared at. I always felt out of the norm; clothing, music, artwork. So, I sort of took Darwin's theory of how man came about and added that Mishap- perhaps Page 51

October 2012~Special Issue continuous process of learning, stabilizing your technique and finding that ground between the artist and 3D software is all trial and error until a marriage is formed. Once that is combined into one, the blank canvas has opened into a world of possibilities. So what is he up to now? As of right now he is working out of the industry due to the cost of living in England, and this demands full time employment. This has put his art life to only occasional projects working around his job. Art has always been a hobby for him and with some beneficial moments, the industry has only flaunted him in the past. A majority of his creation time gets eaten by life those life demands. “By the time I've got home from work, walked the dog, go to the gym, it hardly leaves me time to fire up the PC.” Calum has been in communications with a New York Rapper, working out the details on an old art piece Calum created. He is also seeking Calum’s artistic skills in creating new Cover Art for his cd. All of us who are fans and friends of Calum do wish him the best of success.

Calum Andrews This was back in 2003 when I first met Calum in the Renderosity community, first starting out rendering with Poser 4 and Bryce. A couple of years later Calum found Zbrush and true love had formed. I remember him saying that he was going to lock himself in his room until he learned how to model in Zbrush. And that paid off. Born in London, Calum always had an artistic skill, drawing monsters and beast when he was at a young age. “I have had a lot of monsters around me in my life and I guess in some form they have something to do with my art. I guess boredom and an escape from reality while stroking ideas onto scraps of paper was my way into art. I love creating images.”

http://www.calum5.com/ http://www.renderosity.com/news.php?viewStory=13813 http://www.renderosity.com/news.php?viewStory=13843

Working in 3D has given Calum a new artistic outlook, a new way to create and imagine. Starting with just a blank screen, a blank canvas if you will; one word or one vision can spark a new imaginative direction to design his creations. It can be something different, and something unique, something he and only he knows the true heart of the final render. “I personally feel my art is far from where I want to be. I don’t think of my work as that good, and I have a far greater desire to reach new standards in my own perceptions.” Posting his renders in the galleries, such as Renderosity, Calum has continuous support from his fans. They all love how and why he does what he does. How he creates and how he learns new things and applies them within his renders which appear to be so graceful. However, those new techniques can take weeks to get done and to learn by memory and once you learn one thing in Zbrush you stumble upon something else you did not know you could do. It’s a Page 53

October 2012~Special Issue So as most of you know I am a partially sighted artist also, Blind in my left eye since the age of about 3..This does cause trouble sometimes being an artist but I never let it beat me, just makes me more determined to try harder and to succeed in anything I’m creating, I've met many inspirational artists through the past 10 years and am constantly still amazed at some of the pieces of art I see. But I shall to continue best I can to grow and learn and developed new skills to keep our Characters and artwork fresh and different. Got a lot more gore inside me yet. :]= ~Tracey

Tracey Rolfe Where to begin.....Back in 2003 I first got a copy of Poser 4 and just played with it, tried breaking it and then finally had some idea what I was actually doing. I decided to try and get into content creating for V3 and M3 and found I could actually morph and texture fairly well, I would pop into Renderosity chat and see what folks were up to, and that is where and when I met my husband Andi (Andi3d) I spent the next few years building up my skills and learning new and awesome tricks, both from just tinkering and also talking to other fellow artists, I had my favorites back then Andi3d, Calum5, Prog, Liewald, Toxic Angel and Ravynheart as well as a few others but I needed to find my own style, which I feel I have finally done.. I met Andi again in 2010 and we just completely connected this time round, after many years of bad choices and mistakes we were both at the right place to get together as a couple, So the fact we started working together was inevitable really, so I joined RuntimeDNA's family of merchants and it's the best place I’ve been and the happiest place for creating for.. I love all things dark, dead and gory and found a huge gap in the Poser market for the macabre and since getting together with Andi we have really tried to push ourselves to corner this part of the content for Poser. And we have so much fun along the way, even though Andi actually doesn't like Horror movies and Gore..*chuckles*

October 2012~Special Issue with what. Making sure the makeup doesn’t drip or a nose falls off. Natural environment can take its toll on applied special effects as well as actor’s motions and movements. Not only do special effects artists work on makeup, they also deal with prosthetics, airbrushing, clothing, and props. “It is how we continue to make incredible advances in this field. Some materials are very sensitive to heat, moisture, ratios and biology. We get in the habit of using items for completely different uses then they were originally intended for.”

Let me introduce you to Midian Crosby, a woman after every horror chick’s heart and gore! Owner of Monster Makeup FX, Midian has opened the door to her talent for all thrill seeking, horror, slasher, deformed and creepy directors that need just that extra loving touch of blood, sores and extruding bones to their actors. “The funniest thing is that I was REALLY scared of the dark until about 9 years old and could barely sleep alone (imagining real life scary things like spiders and snakes were waiting to creep out as soon as the lights went out) but Freddy Kruger, aliens and werewolves made me happy.” Her first infatuation was seeing Michael Jackson’s thriller video at the age of six, and then the curiosity of creepiness and love for the misunderstanding of all forms of monster closed in. When her brother, Shawn showed her some horror magazines which included the “behind the scenes” articles, Midian knew this was where she wanted to be, this is what she wanted to do. She studied at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, where she received an Industrial Design degree specializing in special effects. “This was a comprehensive education that strengthened not only my artistic abilities but also creative problem solving and project management skills and connected me with people I still work with today. Pittsburgh also has a surprisingly strong film industry and I stayed in Pittsburgh for many years, until the call of Colorado brought me back.” Learning how everything works in the special effects department does take a lot of trial and errors. Learning about chemical balances, to what works best

When applying these special effects time is a factor, depending on what her client is looking for and how much is in their budget. Some of this is not as easy as it looks. It’s not like putting pancake batter on your face and squeeze the ketchup bottle for a splatter effect. “As with everything special effects, how long it takes is determined by what final result is needed and what the budget is and how much time is available. We have to be flexible as every client is different. So I could do a real basic zombie or scar in just a few minutes, but for a nice custom one with pre-made prosthetics could take days of prep and an hour or more to apply.” Page 65 2012© Green-Fly Media LLC

Midian special effects can be seen on some independent films such as, IT CAME FROM YESTERDAY. Now having an effect to work out perfectly, that would be the independent film INCUBATOR from Pretty People Pictures. “,which has won numerous awards all over the country, including best special effects was one that worked perfectly and is one of the best experiences I've had in film to date. It is a big complement when the crew in the room reacts with shock to seeing your effect on the monitor and then the director forgets to call "cut" because he is so engrossed in watching what will happen next!” Not everyone sees the time and hard work that goes into every detail of applying makeup; it is not like the camera stops and lets you look at the details of the stabled skin or the gushing blood flow down the back of the victim. It is also not really noticed when the actor takes upon a transformation. Each step of that transformation takes time and hard work and especially the variety of makeup to be realistic during that transformation.

“I feel will be most successful was for a film shot in 2010 called Motivational Growth (yet to be released) where I transformed the actor Adrian DiGiovani into the house-bound paranoid filthy oddball Ian Foliver. Zits, mild bed sores, filth and Cheese Its in-the-beard were applied every day and added a lot to the character. I added the filth and wear-and-tear to his wardrobe (a specialty called clothing distressing) as well.”

Halloween is upon her and her teammates, and with their new studio opening and an overload of special requests, as well as teaching courses at Denver Entertainment Art & Design Academy, Midian is in a very happy place.

* Please read the story.. have your artwork pertain to the story.. pick out certain paragraphs.. for instances.. Part 6: Baird looks up, half-dazed. “My men, Where are my men?” he whispers. The acclaimed daughter walks over to him, kneels before him, and clutches his face with both hands. As she looks eye to eye into Baird, she tilts her head to the right and whispers in his ear. “They are dead”. She pulls her head back to face him eye to eye, she smiles.
