I have good news and bad news and then some more good news.
I'll start with the bad news: I've been away from deviantArt for a while now. A lot of work and travelling (just finished a Vue expedition in the Pacific Northwest) is keeping me busy, and I just can't seem to find the time for dA. While I have no intention of leaving, I won't be active for another couple of months here.
Okay, so now the good news, first off we have a lot of new products already published and more coming out (including the SECOND materials video and Sculpted Clouds/MetaClouds) this coming week (already out on e-on, C3D will follow on Friday). We are also posting a lot of tips, tricks, and news on our facebook page. You don't need to be a Facebook member to enjoy the page, so bookmark it!

And now for even MORE good news. I've been talking about my book for a long time - Realism in Vue. It is finished, and off being printed as I write this. It will be available in - dare I say it - a few weeks!
The main place to find out more about the book, which is also the other bit of good news, is my new site DaxPandhi.com (www.daxpandhi.com) which will be central hub for all my books (published and in the works) as well as a blog that I will be constantly updating with renders, experiments, free stuff for Vue, and more. So I highly recommend visiting it.
Lastly, SIGGRAPH 2010 was excellent. Got to meet some great people and see how Hollywood is using Vue. I'll be posting details (and photos) this coming week on my blog.
So, once more, I invite you to visit DaxPandhi.com
