This is a shot in the dark, but I'd rather ask on Dreamwidth before signing myself up on 20 new forums to ask little questions :)

I'm using Blender 2.63.7, and I'm having a little issue with proportional falloff. The shortcuts for changing proportional falloff distance are Mousewheel Up/Mousewheel Down and PgUp/PgDown. I am modeling on a Macbook Air and do not have a page up or page down key, and the normal mousewheel gesture on my trackpad* does nothing. I also tried cmd-up arrow and cmd-down arrow, which emulate page up/down in most text, to no effect.

* which incidentally works great for panning, rotating, etc! Blender fully recognizes pinch and twist, too, if a bit quirkily.

This isn't a *huge* deal as I do have peripherals, but I was hoping to spend my downtime during a flight I have in a few days working on a model, and would really like to be able to use proportional editing! I don't want to pull out my Intuos on a plane... though it wouldn't be something I've never done before...

In the spirit of sharing, Here's my WIP :D The sketch reference in the image is also mine, so I suppose it's kind of a double contribution?!

I hope there are some Blender users on this comm who know what's what! I would love to see a Blender or even 3DCG-centric community on DW (unless there is one of the latter?).

So I have a bunch of stuff posted on my page. What I do is make 3D images of characters for the stories I write. Looking to get out there in the community a little more, from what I see there is a lot of potential in the community. So drop on by, leave a comment, subscribe, blah blah blah and all that fun stuff :-) Also, I have included my most recent piece under the cut.

I really enjoy using the Intuos3 tablet. Still like using the Bamboo tablet, but the sensitivity and performance of the Intuos3 is noticeably better.

Software used: TwistedBrush Pro Studio 16

Son suggested I try something a bit outside of my comfort zone

Very satisfied with the result. Feels pretty good doing graphic art again.

Used TwistedBrush Pro, and Intuos3 graphics tablet.

This tropical American genus includes some 900 species of evergreen perennials and climbers. Quite often seen as indoor plants, they are also very popular in tropical gardens. Anthuriums are also grown as cut flowers, and are an important industry in Hawaii,

Traditional Chinese 5 toed Imperial Dragon, guarding the Black Pearl of Immortality. As mythology goes, the 5 toed dragons were considered the most intelligent of the imperial dragons. They were guardians, and considered the bringers of good luck. Also a symbol of Imperial authority, and represent the ‘Yang’ of then Yin Yang ( The Fenghuang (Phoenix) being its opposite ).

My husband has an old shield from his Grey Company days, that has seen better days. What better way to preserve it than use it as reference for artwork.

First, thank you for making this community. I am so glad to find one that is for digital and digitally created artwork.

So, here is my first contribution.

The Fenghuang (Phoenix) symbolizes the union of yin and yang. It appears in peaceful and prosperous times but hides when trouble is near. According to tradition, each part of Fenghuang's body symbolizes a word, the head represents virtue, the wing represents duty, the back represents propriety,the abdomen says belief, and the chest represents mercy. The Fenghuang represents the Yin of the Yin Yang symbol (The Imperial Dragon being its opposite). It is often described as a composite of many birds including the head of a golden pheasant, the body of a mandarin duck, the tail of a peacock, the legs of a crane, the mouth of a parrot, and the wings of a swallow.

It's also called the "August Rooster" since it sometimes takes the place of the Rooster in the Chinese Zodiac.
