I am going to keep my story as simple as I can or you will be reaing a novel. Simply put I am a stay at home spouse and have been since 2008. Currently I take care of all the house hold duties, (cooking, cleaning, laundry, take care of the dog etc.) Recently however my wife's income has become insufficiant to cover all of our bills on a regular basis (most issues arrise when she gets sick) and unable to afford all of our medical expenses. So, to help out finacially I have been doing what ever I can to earn the little extra we need. The Primary scource of this money has been making products for a 3D program called Daz Studio and selling them on a market place. Right now it is managing to pull a little extra to catch up a bill that has gotten behind or maybe some extra food (about $50-$100 a month).  However, I'd to pull in a bit more. Enough to maybe take over a few of the bills and possibly get some things like dental work done (I currently am missing 2 1/2 teeth as well as in need of other dental work) and seek medical care for a few other conditions I largely ignore because we can't consistantly afford all my meds. 

So, this is where the issue comes in. Right now the programs and equipment I have only allow for me to make textures for prexisting models and retimentery items (like basic shields). However the items that sell the best are the well modled/ crafted pieces made from scratch. The issue for me is that I cannot afford the programs and equipment I'd need to make said things. The reasons I am asking for money for these rather than the money for the actual medical and dental bills is that It is a sum larger than I am comforable asking for, I believe strongly in earning the money thorugh hard work and even if I did ask for and recieve the funding to pay off all my medical debt and get my teeth fixed it still would not fix the sestemic issue. 

Please help me in getting my self and my wife to a better place finacially.

Thanks in advance,
Chad

She-Hulk Slugs Iron Man (first Iray render) by CMKook-24601
She-Hulk Slugs Iron Man (first Iray render)
No real story in mind here, though I can think of a half dozen reasons Jenn might want to punch Stark :P. This was my first completed render in Iray and I wanted to use She-Hulk's Suit and Ironman's armor to show off Iray Shaders. She-Hulk suit has the rubber shaders (white is matte and purple shin), the zipper is a brushed metal. Iron-Man I use the gold Shader and modified it to suit the look I wanted more, similarly I used the car pain with small flecks and modified the color scheme, the silvery metal bits are the platinum shader and of course his glowy bits are the emissive shader re colored with various tweaks to the light intensity. I have to Say the Emissive shader is my favorite simply because it acts as a light source ^_^

The Ironman Suit is the Freebie from inLite Studios

While running from a security guard after spotlighting from the mall the over zealous guard opened fire, Striking and killing Kuura’s boyfriend. After which, Kurra decided to turn her life around, but it wasn’t until adulthood that things truly changed.
