|In Memory of Shana
It is with great sadness that we share the news that longtime Renderosity member and vendor, Shana, passed away on Saturday, July 13, 2013.
From her home in the South of Portugal, Shana had been working as a freelance artist, honing her digital art skills for more than twelve years since she first started with coloring her own drawings in Photoshop.
Shana became a member of Renderosity in the beginning of 2005, and shortly thereafter became a vendor here. As evidence of her incredible talent, Shana quickly became a top vendor and received a number of Vendor of the Month awards. Here on Renderosity, Shana forged many friendships, learning from others and willingly sharing her own advice and knowledge as well.
A lover of books, movies, video games, and a self-proclaimed shop-a-holic, she enjoyed life to the fullest, and believed in her own advice for others: "...just do what you love and be happy!" An inspiring artist who gave so much of herself, Shana will be truly missed. Long time collaborative vendor, outoftouch, says, "It’s the saddest news that has ever arrived in my mail account...It makes me happy that Shana stays in this community in a very special way.” "
“When we first received the notice from Shana’s boyfriend, we had hoped it was just a horrible hoax,” says Marketplace Manager, Stacey Granstaff, “we just didn’t want to believe this could be true. We are all deeply saddened and we will miss her. She was so kind and enjoyable to work with.”
Marketplace Admin, JennBlake says, "Shana was one of the sweetest people I have had the honor of meeting here at Renderosity. When I first started in 3D as a hobby she was one of the first vendors I contacted to ask questions about lighting and render settings. She was always very willing to give out tips and tricks. She never had a bad word about anyone. She was a girl after my own heart with the pink textures (she would giggle if she heard me say that). Every time a really great outfit came out I would wait for her add-on for it because I knew there would be a pink one. And I always wrote to thank her for it. She never failed to reply with, ‘I knew you would love it!’ She was a joy to buy from as a buyer before I was lucky enough to be an Admin here. And as an admin, she was a pleasure to work with. I will miss her, and her work here at Renderosity very much."
Messages from her parents and boyfriend are below.
From Shana's parents:
To our dear and beloved Shana, who so suddenly has left us, we will remember your smile, your sweetness, your honesty, your companionship and how much you helped us. We will forever be grateful.
We will also remember the dedication she had to her work, what she loved to do. With these simple but meaningful words, we want everyone who worked with her and those who helped her, we want you all to be certain that she will always be in our hearts. We hope that just like us, each and every one of you will keep not only the seeds of what she created alive, but also the memory of the amazing human being who now has gone up to heaven, from where she will look out and protect all of us.
From Shana's partner, Nuno:
My name is Nuno, I am Shana's boyfriend and longtime partner in more ways than one. You're hearing from me now for the worst reason possible, I'm completely heartbroken, this has been the worst week of my life, and I doubt it will get better anytime soon.
Most of you knew her as a vendor here, you've known her for years, what you didn't know was that a lot of what she did here was with me by her side. I helped her as much as I could over the years in a lot of the work she did. So even if you don't know me, I do know a lot of you already. There's too many of you to mention, but I wrote a lot of e-mails and sitemails to all of you for my girl because she thought I wrote better English than her. I'm not here to take credit for anything. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't be here right now. Ever since I got to know her, she literally changed my life. She was just amazing that way. I can say without any doubt in my mind that if she hadn't come into my life, I would not be here right now. I wouldn't be who I am today, she's the best thing that ever happened to me. I will forever be grateful to have spent these years with her.
I don't even know what to say, what to do or where to start. All I keep thinking is that she didn't deserve this, it shouldn't have happened, it was way too soon. There was so much that was left to say, so much that we didn't get to do, so many dreams and wishes she had that never got to be fulfilled, and that's not fair. If there's one person in the world I'm completely sure deserved better, it was her. She went through a lot over the years, most of you don't know anything about her illness because she didn't complain. She only talked with me and few people in her family. She could have played the pity card, but she never did, she didn't want to, she didn't need to. It makes me completely sick to hear anyone complain about anything bad they think they have, how unfair life is to them and how things didn't turn out the way they think they deserved. People say these things without knowing how bad it can actually be, without having any idea what actually hurts. Unfortunately she knew, she went through all of it and still came out smiling. I'm not as good as her and never will be, she had her problems and still helped people around her. She was the bravest, sweetest girl I'll ever know. I wish I could have done more. I really did try my best to make her happy and even if I know and truly believe that at least for a few moments I did make her happy, somehow that doesn't seem like enough, she just deserved better, she deserved more.
I will remember her forever, how beautiful she is, how sweet she was, how amazing it was to be with her, how much fun we had, I'll never forget and will always treasure her memory forever. I learned so much about life just by being close to her, about the actual important things we all one day hope to have, things I never thought I would one day have, things I never imagined would happen to me, they all did, all because of her. As bad as it hurts right now, as much as I don't know how or when this pain will go away, as much as I just want to run away and hide, as unfair as I think all of this is, how unfair it is that I will never get to be with her again, see her again, touch her, kiss her...as sad as that makes me....I'm still happy that at least I got to be with her, even if it was just for a few years. I love her, she's my girl, she always will be.
Something else I need mention, even though I'm not ready for it yet, I do plan on eventually continuing what we did. This time alone but with her always in my heart, always thinking of her, this was what we did, this is what she liked, it was on Renderosity that we managed to make some of her wishes come true. It was because of this website, other support of other vendors, and all the purchases you all have made. I want everyone to know how thankful she was. She always wanted to be taken seriously as an artist, make an actual living from it, and she got to do that. It doesn't matter if I helped or not, she made it happen for herself. She worked for it. I know she was thankful to everyone who helped her, as I am. I don't know when, but I do plan on continuing sometime. Hopefully, also with those who worked with her. It's what she wanted me to do, it's what her parents want me to do. .I want her username to live on, I don't want anyone to ever forget her, that's the only thing I can do for her now.
Renderosity has kindly agreed to keep the Shana username and store active (thank you!). Just nothing new will be added from her. I will added to her products to take care of them, so contact me now as ShanasSoulmate if you have any support questions. ShanasSoulmate seems appropriate, since we both thought we were made for each other. No one knows me as she did, and no will ever know her as I did). Shana, if you're watching over me now, please know how proud I am of you and how much I'll always miss you. I truly hope one day I'll get to see you again fofa, I love you!
Thank you everyone,
You'll hear from me again,
Please join with us in sending condolences to Shana's family and friends. She will be greatly missed.

I have been so sad since hearing about this. Though I never got the chance to meet her or get to know her personally, I have grieved over this tragedy as if I had known her well. My sincerest condolences to her parents, Nuno and all of her friends!
What a terrible loss! I hate hearing about this. In tears, my thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family and friends.
She will be greatly missed. As a fellow texture artist/vendor I had much respect for her "style" and good taste. Although we are completely different, I always enjoyed looking at her new products, using her designs in my art, and enjoying her promotional images.
She will live on, and will not be forgotten.
Very sad indeed. Love and thoughts to Nuno & her family.
I'm very sorry for your loss I do know that the pain never goes away but it does get better, at some point they move on and you wake one day and decide to move on and live a full and happy life, right after death its hard to do because of the memories, I believe that once you've reached the end of every moment you spent with that person is viewed, accepted as wonderful (even the bad ones) you get a sence of peace that settles over your soul and you just know at that moment that its time, but the pain and agony of waiting for that moment can be horrid and time consuming, but please keep in mind and heart that it will happen, but you'll also never forget the amazing person and any and everyone you meet and will become associated with from now on will know, have a feeling that you carry someone dear to you in your heart and that two are met well instead of just one *hugs n slobbers*
OMG i LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH SWEETIE I MISS U SOO MUCH ALL READY,

My heart goes out to Shana's loved ones. Hold her memory close and know that even though the pain will never completely go away, one day it will become bearable. Her work was marvelous.
A terrible tragedy, and yes, so very unfair. Condolences to Shana's parents and to her dear and loving Nuno, stay close and help each other as only those closests to her can help each other.
And condolences to outoftouch who is certainly hurting also from this loss.

As you can see her talent
and skill in this field in 3D

What a terrible loss, both to our community but particularly to her loved ones. My sincerest condolences to them.

She will be missed. No one can ever be replaced. Each soul and life is unique and hers' was a truly beautiful and brilliant one. We will all remember her.
My deepest condolences to Shana's family and friends and to her soul mate, Nuno. I'm so very sorry for your loss. I never knew her, but I have bought a few of her texture sets over the years. Thank you to Renderosity for keeping her store open and preserving her memory. Blessings and love.
Oh my goodness. I am truly saddened by this news. My sincerest condolences to her parents, family, friends and her soulmate Nuno.
In a word, heartbroken.
One of my favorite vendors.
My deepest condolences. It's so tragic and sad.
The world lost a wonderful artist, her family lost a wonderful person.
In a word, heartbroken.
One of my favorite vendors.
This is such a terrible loss and our hearts go out to Shana's family and friend. All of the Community will miss her greatly
An amazing talent has too soon left this world, yet her beautiful works will always live on in our creations as a tribute to her. My deepest condolences to her family and her soul mate at this time.
I 'm .... speechless and shocked ...
My deepest condolences.
I'm really sad! My deepest condolences.
She was one of my favourites venders.
My deepest condolences to her friends and family.
This is a sadness. I had the pleasure and privilege of getting to know her when she first started out. She was always so sweet and kind. My heart goes out to her friends and her family. Gone too soon.
My deepest condolences to Shana's family and friends. She will be missed.
Wow, I'm just floored. My condolences to her family and friends. Such a terrible loss to them, and the community. She did great work :(
She will be deeply missed. My thoughts are with her family, her soulmate Nuno, and her good friend and partner Timo. She was a treasure to have here, just way to short a time.
Although I didn’t know Shana personally I had a great respect for her work, she was an exceptional artist. So very, very sorry to hear of your loss, my sincere condolences to Nuno and Shana’s family and friends.
My deepest condolences on this tragedy. :(
«That night something of youth and beauty died in the elder world» [H.P. Lovecraft, "The Quest of Iranon"].
In circumstances such as this it's difficult to say anything without avoiding the trap of platitudes and easy clichés, but… I'm distressed.
It is sad knowing that a skilled artist is no more. It is sad knowing that a talented voice has been silenced. It is sad we won't see more of what made Shana a unique person and a unique artist I never got the chance to know in the little time since I joined Renderosity.
But, like someone already said, she will live on. She will be missed but we will *not* forget. I know I won't.
My sincere condolences to her family and to Nuno.
Sit tellus levis tibi, Shana.
I just learned the sad news and as many here I was shocked and could hardly believe what I was reading. I had the opportunity to work with Shana: a nice person with energy and talent! life is so unfair ...
My sincerest condolences to her family and Nuno.
I'm so sorry for your loss...
Didn't see this coming at all and am deeply saddened by the news. She was one of the few vendors that kept me inspired to create on my own and so sweet when it came to asking for help and advice. She was truly a sparkling gem amongst the crowd and will be greatly missed. Her style was so unique and said loads about what she was capable of as a designer. My sincerest condolences to her family and friends for the lose. Gone, but definitely not forgotten. *hugs*
I am so sad to hear this. It was always a joy to see what was new and the trademark style when it entered the market. No one will ever be able to take her place. Condolences to all :(
My sincere condolences at her familiy and friends.
Condolences to Shana's family, Nuno and all her friends. I did not know her but will miss a very talented vendor.
that's a beautiful tribute.
I never knew Shana, but wish I did. She sounds like a wonderful person, daughter, artist, and soul mate.
My heart felt sympathies to you, Shana's family and all her friends for losing such a loved one way too early.
But I am glad you & she had some wonderful time together as well, that she was well loved by you, and all who knew her.
I know the pain is indescribable, but I believe she would want you to be able to smile when you remember her, and I know you will get there.
Those who have enjoyed your work will never forget you Shana. Never.
I'm so sad to hear of this horrible loss to her family, Nuno, and the Poser community. Rest in peace, Shana. My deepest condolences to all who loved her.
My sincere condolences to Shana's family and friends. I did not know Shana, but from one artist to another, I have to say "Shana, I loved your bold, bright use of colors. Your products and your brilliant art always brighten my day."
It is good to know all of your fine work will always be here for others to enjoy. Thank you Shana, your work will be truly missed.
This is most sad, I'm so sorry to hear about this. Heartfelt condolences to family and loved ones.
My sincere condolances to Nuno and her family. What a tragedy.....
My deepest sympathy and condolences to her family and all of her loved ones/ friends. I am so sorry for your loss. There are no words that will ease the pain at this time so I'm not even going to try. Just know that she isn't hurting any more, and she is watching over you all with love & compassion for what you are going through right now.
My prayers are with you during this time of mourning. .
Tenho sido um cliente de longa data de Shana e ficou muito triste ao ouvir esta notícia. Espero que você e sua família vai mantê-la em suas orações e pensamentos, e ela permanecerá na minha. Nos 15 anos em que estiveram nesta comunidade, eu perdi muitos amigos, fornecedores, e cada vez que é triste ouvir de outro, especialmente alguém tão jovem.
Por favor, aceite minhas sinceras condolências neste momento terrível.
Antonio Rodriguez Gomes de Melo

Very sad news. condoleances for the family.

Such very sad news, Shana was always ever so sweet, you will be sadly missed hun :( My deepest sympathy and condolences go out to your family & loved ones.
What can I add that has not already been stated here. I will always remember her trademark Pink, I LOVED those texture add ons. There were even a few outfits I bought because of her Pink textures.
Você tem o meu mais sincero pesar. Desejo-lhe boa sorte com a sua marca registrada estilos de Color De Rosas
My deepest condolences to her friends and family.
it shocks me, it makes me sad - she was one of my favourite vendors and a great artist.. she was to young. I will never forget her and now using her products with memories and rememberings.... my thought are with her parents family and boyfriend.. it makes me truely unhappa
My condolences to her loved ones...
This floored me when I saw it. I read all of this with tears in my eyes. I have purchased many of her packs here on Renderosity and I will continue to do so. I will always support her memory and family. I will deeply miss her.
I am deeply sad.. She was a very good friend and talented artist... We had many good projects...
This is just so sad :( My thoughts and prayers are with you Nuno and Shana's family and friends :(
Very sad news. My deepest condolences to her family
My deepest condolences. She made wonderful and imaginative products that gave us just a peek at the creativity of the person within. Our community will be lessened by her loss.
omg that is very sad... I loved her things. My condolences and a lot of strength to the loss. My thoughts are with her family and Nuno
So very sad. I know that she will be missed not only by her parents, family, and her boyfriend, but also by many of us here that got to know her! God bless her family and friends, and I pray healing over them as they mourn her loss :(
This breaks my heart, Shana was a beautiful person to talk to and tho I haven't spoken to her in quite a long while or very often, she left an impression on me. She's the reason I kept making characters even when one didn't sell well. I'd look and see her using one of my girls in her promos and it would convince me that I must be doing something right because Shana likes them enough to use them. :)
She was a talented artist, a friendly person, and just beautiful inside and out. My heart goes out to her family & Nuno. My prayers are with you all in this time of loss.
We will all miss Shana in this community.
I just can't believe this....so very shocked. She will be missed, as her work reflected her bright spirit. So sad for her family and her friends here.....
My sympathies to her friends and family...
Her vivid colors will be missed.
My deepest condolences to Nuno and the rest of Shana’s family. Although I only knew her as one of my favorite artists I always looked forward to the wonderful new things she added here. All I have to share is that the love we give in this life never diminishes. It stays with those we share it with and through those treasured memories and stories we relay to others it continues to grow and touch others. Take care and please know you are in my thoughts and prayers @};-
I will know Shana as the name I have known for the quality and artistic values of her work from the time I first joined this site.
I will keep in my mind that while Shana was here in this world she was able to do and express her heart to us my the amount of effort and time she put into her work.
I will appreciate the life she had and the time she gave.
We will all go one day, we can only hope that on that day we can accompany the ones that meant so much to us in this place.
With her wings I know she will fly high as she did on Earth.
I am very sad. I always admired her work and she was also special to me becuase we are both Portuguese. Condoleances for the family, boyfriend and friends.
This is such sad news for the community as well as her family and friends in real life ! Shana, you made your mark in the world and in history with your amazing artistic talent and you will never be forgotten!
I'm so sorry for your loss Nuno and to Shana's family and friends. To lose such a beautiful soul so soon is indeed very unfair. I have always admired her products and it brings a small amount of healing to know that you will some day continue her legacy.
such a wonderful and talented person. My condolences to the family.
She IS a very big inspiration to me and she IS a sweet person. I will miss her.
My deepest condolences. I am in shock. We will miss you
My deepest condolences. she will be sadly missed by everyone that knew her!
My sympathies to her boyfriend, her family and friends.
So sorry to hear of the loss of such a fantastic artist. Condolences to the family.
♥ Love and prayers to her family and friends.
I am so heartbroken :( I will miss Shana greatly. She was always so very loving and kind to me as well as others in the community. I always enjoyed sharing with Shana both stories, products and much more. She was such a great inspiration to me and others. So sad to hear this news. Lots of love, well wishes for her family and Nuno.
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
- Mary Elizabeth Frye
How very sad...it's always worse when it is sudden or unexpected. My thoughts are with her loved ones.
I am in shock... such sad news :(
my sincere condolences to Nuno and Shana’s family and friends
What can I say that hasn't already been said. I greatly admired her work and she will be missed by the entire community. My sincere condolences to family and companion. Rest in peace.
Just in complete and utter shock.
To have such a wonderful and young soul taken from the world so suddenly is so very very sad.
Shana must've been needed elsewhere and I hope that wherever she has been called, may she look upon her loved ones with support and love until they meet again.
I am so sorry for your loss.
So sad to hear this "( She was an amazing woman with an amazing talent and will be dearly missed!
Oh God, this news is like a kick in the guts. With all due respect, I wonder what her illness was? I would be humbled to donate to research for a cure (if it was that kind of illness).
Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one.
Shana's work is exquisite and unforgettable. My deepest sympathies to her family and loved ones.
I'm stunned. This is horrible news. My prayers to her family and friends...I know how much it hurts to lose a loved one, especially so suddenly.
We'll all miss her, she was such a talented soul
I'm so sorry to hear of Shana's passing. My heart goes out to the family, Nuno, and friends she left behind.
My deepest condolences go to her partner Nuno and the rest of Shana’s family.

I'm in total shock. All though I never knew Shana personally, I was a huge fan of her work. I send only good wishes and my sympathies to all her knew her well. She will be missed.
Hope she finds peace and happiness in the hereafter.
So sad... I would write her in spanish, it suits better my soul right now... my deep condolences and wish she is there as an angel forever over us here...
Nuno, you HAVE TO CONTINUE.
Such a sad thing to see...What a terrible loss for the artist community. One of my favorite vendors. My deepest condolences and prayers for her family and friends.

OMG! I am SO SORRY to hear of this I and offer my sincerest condolences to Shana's Loved ones.
I only knew Shana through her work/products. She was by far one of the most talented vendors here at Renderosity I am SO glad to hear that her namesake and store will continue on. What a beautiful tribute to this wonderfully talented individual taken too soon.
I am so sorry to hear this. Our prayers are with the family.
Woah. My prayers go to her family. I didn't know her personally but I loved her work. May she R.I.P
I am shocked and saddened by this news. Although I never got to know her, I admired her work. My thoughts and sympathies go out to Nuno and her parents
I was shocked to see this on the homepage. :( My thoughts go to her loved ones. I have purchased many of her texture products and love them.
I'm so incredibly sorry to hear about Shana's passing and about your loss. To Nuno and Shana's parents, may you be comforted during this time of loss. Prayers for each of you. God bless.
This is a huge loss of a wonderful, inspirational person and an amazing talent. Breaks my heart. I hope she is forever smiling knowing how much she is loved and respected by the community.
My condolences for the family and soulmate.
This tragic loss to our community is a great sadness. Prayers for comfornt go to her family and friends.
Beyond shocked and heartbroken...no words. No words...
I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. I'm sure she is watching over you now and all her loved ones. Take heart in knowing that she will never have to suffer anymore. I'm glad you're going to continue on. Take care. All my prayers to you and all her family.
I'm so sad to hear this. My condolences to you.
I too am shocked. I am a huge fan of her designs and her style. I thought to myself - I would like some day to get my designs to look as good as Shana - she was my goal in poser work. (you know as an artist you normally get influenced by another artist with talents that are incredible and you pick that artist to use as a goal for quality of work, style and well just awesomeness - she was that for me). I am truly sorry for your loss. I do not have the rights words to say here - but as you can see we will all miss her (even the ones that didn't know her personally) :(
Shocked and so sorry to learn of Shana's passing, very sad indeed. Deepest condolences to Nuno, her family and friends.
My heart breaks for all of her loved ones. Her talent will be missed by those who never got a chance to know her, and her light will be missed by all who loved her. There are no words.
Such sad news. My thoughts are with her loved ones. She will be missed.
Truly dreadful news. My heart goes out to Shana's family and Nuno.
Really shocking news :(
I have nothing but respect and love for Shana... She was always sweet and humble. I know she's in a better place now, and we all shall follow some day, but in the meantime the loss seems unbearable... My condolences and all my heartfelt love and warmth to her family. She will be truly missed...
Please accept my dearest sympathy in you and her families great loss. I did not know her but wish you all the best.
So sorry for your loss. What a wonderful artist.
This is so sad she was such an inspiration to this community
Shana you will be missed RIP
I'm so sorry Nuno. I talked to her a few times via SiteMail. She was a good lady and a great artist. I think everyone here will miss her.
Such a terrible tragedy... My condolences to her family and friends.

So sad news, and the pain is much worst when someone like her goes so soon. My deepest condolences to the family and her boyfriend.
I just saw this and am very much saddened by the news. I have more than a few of her many works.
While I'll try to remember her with joy , now I won't be able to use them without a trace of sadness.
I'm glad she was able to do what she loved!
My most sincere condolences to Shana's family and friends, a great artist, a great loss.
omg, this is all so sudden. my deepest condolences to friends and family. her talent will never be replaced.
This is such shocking, sad news...my deepest condolences to her family and Nuno for their loss...Shana's beautiful work will be sorely missed but surely she and her wonderful labors of love will not be forgotten.
Why talented and young people?
Most deepest and heartfelt sympathies to Shana's family, Nuno, and friends. It is always heartrending to hear of the passing of fellow artists and friends in this world, but doubly so when they are taken so suddenly, swiftly and soon. There is a new star in the heaven's tonight and it will long endure to those whose lives she touched with her own magic. I may not have known her but her presence is still felt and missed. Rest in Peace, Shana...you will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends of this talented young lady. Her art was most excellent as was her personality.
We are all diminished by her passing. A light has left us and left us a dimmer place.
Please know that our blessings flow from us to you. My condolences to you and yours.
I did not know Shana but I bought many of her products and loved them all. I lost someone myself not long ago and reading the letter from her partner brought tears to my eyes. At least she had someone so close to her and though Nuno may feel pain at least he can find comfort that he was the best he could be for Shana and that she would know deep inside what he was to her. I feel so much for you for she was a great artist.
My sincere and best condolences to Nuno and her family.
This is very sad. Shana's family, friends and Nuno are in my thoughts and prayers.
Muito triste com a notícia!!!
Eu não a conheço pessoalmente e nunca nos falamos,mas comprei alguns de seus trabalhos aqui em Rendo.
Admiro muito seu trabalho e com certeza é uma grande perda para todos nós!!
Deixo aqui meu carinho para família e Nuno.
Agora ela está nos braços de Jesus e com seus anjos.
OMG .. she was a huge talent, she was a very sweet and kind person and she was always nice to me .... you will be missed!! i have nothing but respect for you in everything you gave to this community and to the world. ... be at peace Shana!!! x
My prayers are with you Nuno and family. Shana as I know her was a super talented artist and she will always be remembered by me and by many. I have many of her products that are cherished. She is smiling down upon you because your love does go on. I am in tears as I write this. I am glad you are continuing her work. I thank you for that and for sharing your feelings and thoughts with all of us.
Very sad to hear of the loss of such a great artist. My deepest condolences to her family and friends.
Condolences to Nuno, and Shana's family & friends.
I loved her work, it was always of the highest standard.
Taken too early - you won't be forgotten.
A great loss to our community.
My best wishes to her family, friends and loved ones.
May she be remembered for a long time
So much happiness in those colors and textures... that could come just from a wonderful person and artist.
This is a huge loss to everyone here. I don't know what else I can say, this is a very sad news.
A great loss to our community
My best wishes to her family, friends and loved ones.
May she be remembered for a long time
My prayers and deepest condolences to her friends and family.
I am shocked and saddened by this terrible news. Although I never had the opportunity to work with Shana, I often used her textures in my work. Just this morning I was beginning a project and started it by looking at which products had texture add-ons by Shana! My sincerest condolences to her parents, family, friends, and Nuno.
My condolences to Shana's loved ones. She had a very recognizable style. Didn't even need to look at the vendor name. Could just tell by the promos. I don't know how many outfits I bought simply to be able to use Shana's textures. She was definitely a gifted artist.
so sad... my thoughts are with her family, boyfriend and friends.
Gone too soon sweet girl. Yes we shall miss you so much. Sending heart felt thoughts to Shana's family and her Nuno. Strength for them too.
My condolences to ShanaC's parents and to Nuno. May she rest in peace.
My thoughts and prayers, as well as my deepest sympathies, go out to Shana's family and friends. May peace fill your hearts and may Shana also be at peace.
My thoughts and prayers are with Shana's family, Nuno and friends. She will be missed as an artist and a friend to those who knew her. Such sad news.
A great loss to everyone. My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of this brave and talented woman.
Nuno, you have written a beautiful tribute to her, I'm so sorry for your loss. My condolences to you and her family.
Shana was one of my favourite artist in the 3D universe... i'm so sad to read she's not with us anymore... all my deepest condolences to her family and close friends, we'll all miss your talent, rest in peace and thank you for your art
I'm shocked and saddened and heartbroken for her family and loved ones. It's funny how we "know" an artist by their style and how we feel connected to them when we use their products in our own work. Her spirit will live on in all of our runtimes and in all of the beauty she has inspired. I never met her, but I will miss her nonetheless.
Very sad indeed my condolences to her partner & Family.
I was surprised when I saw the notice on the front page. My condolences to you and Shana's family on your loss.
Shana had such a bold and vibrant look to her work, that you instantly knew it was her work whenever you saw the thumbnails. I loved her work and from the comments I've read it seems to have been an outgrowth of her personality. I am very saddened by this news and can only offer my condolences to all those who knew her and loved her
I am so sorry for your pain and your loss of the woman you loved.
And to her family I give my sadness on losing her.
God bless you.
God bless Shana.
Oh noooooo, I loved her!!!! *cry*
My deepest condolences to Shana's family and friends. Very sad news for this community indeed.
My deepest condolences to all who are grieving this terrible loss. Shana's creations are a part of the work of many artists here, and in that way her life has touched so many of ours. Her creative spirit will be honored in each new image that her work becomes a part of, and in that expression she will never be forgotten. My thoughts are with you all.
our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
why do the "pure"ones have to go soo early?,maybe we will understand when our turn comes.
She will not be forgotten by us, be sure of that!
Thats so sad. My thoughts are with her family and partner.... i am shocked ...
My deepest condolences to her family and Nuno .
So very, very sorry! Such young people should...this should not happen! This is a real shock!

Such sad news :( I didn't personally know Shana (unfortunately) but she was always someone who injected such style, creativity and immaculate visuals in EVERYTHING she created! She truly WAS a great artist and I am glad that she got to make that dream real. My thoughts go out to Nuno and her family at this heartbreaking time, there really is nothing to say to help you at this time but to let you know how respected and amazing your Shana was in the 3D community ... She shall be missed greatly by many. many people :(
This is an unexpected shock! :(
I'm speechless and most sad at the young of her age.. such talent to get wasted, a true shame!
My deepest condolences to her family - this must be the worst time of their lives! :(
My sincere condolences to all of her family and friends ...

Very sorry to read this. Condolences to Shana's family and friends.
This was very sad news :( Though I never knew Shana I'm a great admirer of her work, she was extremely talented and made many fantastic products of which I own a lot. She was also a huge source of inspiration. My sincerest condolences to Nuno, her family and friends
So sad to read this. Lost a great artist and one of my faourite vendors. Feeling with her family and friends
I normally don't receive 'vendor alerts', but somehow once in purchasing an item from Shana or in corresponding with her I must have accidentally toggled the setting for her site to "on." Rather than turn it off, I let it ride, and over the last few years with every new store addition (there were a lot; "a new product from Shana...") I came away with a deeper appreciation with how productive, and creative, and energetic a member of the community she was.
I don't know what happened. This is not at all the thing I want to hear, even from a distance, and I feel deeply for those closest to Shana and to those she touched the most.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family and friends,
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family and friends.
I couldn't have been more shocked. Condolences to Nuno and to Shana's family. Take heart, though she's absent from your lives for the time being I believe that you will see her again - what a blessed reunion that will be. God bless you all.
So many great names in the world of 3d paying tribute to her shows what a talented and well loved person she was. I'm just an admirer of her work not someone well known in here, but I am deeply saddened to hear of this and give my deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.
Our condolences to Shana's family and friends.
This is one of the saddest day of our lives! Life is very unfair and cruel and this tragedy is almost unreal. Please keep her dreams going on for all of us and don't let her huge talent fly away with her.
This truly is sad...may the family and Nuno heal as quickly as possible.
My heart goes out to her loved ones. This is so sad. She will be greatly missed.
My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Shana.
The death of any one person on earth diminishes the light and souls of all of us left behind. Rest in peace, Shana.
Nuno, I am terribly sorry to hear about this, and all of you shall be in our prayers. The 3D community has lost a truly wonderful lady!
I can not begin to tell you how sorry I am for your loss, I don't post usually, just lurk in the dark. Shana's art stood out as some of the best renders I have ever seen. My prayers and deepest wishes of peace to Nuno and her family.
A terrible, terrible loss.
the world has lost another great and beautiful person and talent! I'm so sorry she has suffered and gone so soon from this life. Hope her family, and Nuno, find comfort and strength and feel her love going forward. Sending my sympathies to all who knew her...
The digital Art world has definitely lost a great & talented artist!! It will never be the same with out her! My heart & prayers go out to her family & loved ones!!! R.I.P. Shana you will be greatly missed!!!
I tried to find some words... but I'm shocked in front of the screen and can't stop my tears...
...my heart is close to Shana parents and to you Nuno.

Shana will never be forgotten always in our hearts.
R.I.P Shana, no more pain. Your legacy will live on here through us and your memory also. Having lost someone very close also recently Nuno, its hard to contemplate anything making you feel better only time, as for me.....Time helps. That's all..... just time, Be strong for her. There is no sense. Soon, memories will lift you.... sleep well Shana xxx
I am deeply shocked and sincerely saddened to hear this news. We have lost a truly outstanding and talented artist, my thoughts go out to her family, loved ones and friends. I always got exited when I received a notification about a new product release of hers, and would snap it up straight away. At least when someone uses one of her products they will be keeping her spirit alive in their work. God bless your soul Shana.
We've lost one of the greatest texture artists ever. Forever a big fan. She will be missed.

I admired her works and she was such an inspiration and I know she still will be.
That is so sad....
Over the years being here i've seen her name and products many times. Being vendor of the month a few times. I admire creative artists like she was one, who can create quality products over such a long time and keep going. She really must have loved, what she was doing. Sad to hear, it has to end in a sudden, unexpected way. My sincere condolences to her family, loved ones and friends.
Blessings to Shana's family and friends. May your aching heart find healing by the happy memories of a wonderful, talented soul. God Speed Shana! You will be deeply missed by many!
My Deepest Condolences. R.I.P Shana
Oh no! I just came back from holidays and checked on news here on Renderosity. What terrible news I must read! Shana, I am so grateful that you had an ear for my problems. I still do how you taught me. I cannot believe that I will never see any more of your colourful products. I am truly sad, and it is with tears in my eyes when I say, "My heart goes out to Shana's parents, her family, and to her partner Nuno". I will miss you here. The marketplace will never be the same without you. Rest in peace, little angel.
This really knocked me for a loop, hearing that she's gone from us. To all her friends, family & partner Nuno, my heartfelt condolences on the loss of such a bright light. Things just won't be the same here without you, ShanaC.
You are beautiful! As all your works are beautiful! I am so happy that we have been working together, that's a great experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you Shana.
What a terrible loss! Shana...fly with the angels now...you've earned both your wings and halo!
Such a sad thing when the ones we love are taken from us. Won't be the same. Condolences.
My prayers are with you Nuno, and family. I was shocked to hear about her passing. her passion for art kept us interested and inspired. When I first joined I was a huge fan and had to have everything new and amazing she created. I am in loss for words and will miss her.
Great sadness for the loss of this great artist, I enjoyed many of her creations, and this notice totally shocked me. Condolences to Nuno and her family.
very sad. :(
I too feel so sorrowful for such a tragic loss. It is both sad and beautiful to read all these tributes to this wonderful artist. Now I will treasure even more the "SHANA" items I have collected over the years. Thank you Shana
It's so sad...
My deepest condolecences to her family and friends
A bright light has gone out and the world is now a little darker.
For those who have passed on, the suffering is over. For those left behind it continues, but they can take some comfort in knowing their loved one is at peace and cannot be hurt any more.
Remember her as she was, always.
Shana was one of my favorite vendors and artists. I really liked her style.
Nuno, what a wonderful tribute to her. My sincere condolences to you and to her family. I hope that you will one day be able to continue with the work you both loved and smile thinking of her.
i can't believe this. i'm stunned. i didn't expect this to affect me at all but i'm in tears. this was one of the first vendors i ever followed, who i trusted to know her product and to make great textures for others. this is heartbreaking. i know it will lessen for us all eventually but what a blow. love and light to her family and loved ones who must miss her so much. if her spark touched those of us who never spoke with her, this deeply, i can't imagine what they must be feeling who actually had the privilege and honour of knowing her personally. one less light on earth, one more star in the sky.
Oh dear, what a shock to hear this news...
Like many others here, I didn't know her personally, but as an artist, I admired her bold use of color and texture.
Sending peace and strength to her friends, family, and loved ones.
I have never communicated with her, but reading this made me cry. As sad as it is, I'm happy for her that she was able to find such a great love in Nuno. I don't think most people find their soulmates and get to experience such a profound love and do creatively what they love most on a daily basis. So, as tragic as it is, she was fortunate to be able to experience love in so many ways while alive. I do believe in the possibility that consciousness can live on after death of the body, so hopefully she is creating unbelieveable art without the limitations of a computer wherever she is! I know how hard it must be though for those she left behind.
Godspeed Shana. You've touched many lives through your art and your soul.
So sad to hear, my thoughts and prayers are with you Nuno and Shana's Family.
My heart goes out to you all who are suffering this loss, especially her parents and Nuno.
goodbye sweet friend.....
near Nuno and Shana's Family
This is very sad news, and my sincere condolences for your loss. I hope that you and her family can take some comfort from the number of people who have sent their thoughts and prayers, and to realize how much of a mark she made on this community. She was known and loved through her art work, here and at many artist sites throughout the 3D world. She will be truly missed.
Shes was amazing artist and a sounds like she was a wonderful soul. She will be missed a great deal!
My deepest sympathy to you and her family. I will keep you in my prayers.
A piece of Rendo's heart went missing...my best to the family and those she left behind.
Now this really makes me cry. Shana's work was very recognizable, even from small thumbnails... And always worth getting. A big piece of color has left this world with her passing. :-(
To Nuno and Shana's family & friends, my deepest condolences!
Shana will be missed by many people for many reasons, but we all know that you have lost the most.
The entire community has lost something lovely :-(
Esta notícia é inacreditável...
Nossas sincéras condolências...
Acreditamos que a Shana está em bom lugar e rezamos por si, Nuno, por ela e sua família
This news is unbelievable...
Our sincere condolences...
We believe that Shana is in a good place and we pray for you, Nuno, for her and her family

My thoughts are with you in this time of sorrow.
Very sad loss for us all.
Very sad loss for us all. But the memory of the life of such a great artist will enrich us all for the rest of our lives.
My sincere condolences. It's crazy. But, I feel like I know her, personally. My runtime is filled with her stuff. This really hurts my heart. Rest In Paradise
Oh this is such sad news. For as sad as it is however, I think the outpouring of affection being displayed by her friends here at Renderosity is a wonderful tribute to what a special person she was.
My deepest condolences to her family and friends.
Shana, your creativity will always be an inspiration to me. May you bring as much illumination to the celestial realm as you have to the material realm. May peace and comfort come to all family, friends and those who remain.
What a loss to this community...
Heaven gained a new angel. My prayers go to the family and close friends.
Shana will be miss'd by so many people. She is in our hearts and will never leave or ever be forgotten. Thank U Shana for sharing your 3D passion with us.
A sad day. Shana did so much great artwork for us all.
My heart dropped when I got the mail. I'm heartbroken. As one friend said when I texted her the news, "WHAAAT??!?! NOOOOOOO!" are just about the only words that seem remotely adequate.
Condolences to Nuno and her parents and the rest of her family, friends, and loved ones.
My deepest condolencies for yor loss, our loss. Rest assured however, that she will actually live forever. Here amongst us in this wonderful community she helped to create!
I'm so sorry to hear of this. :-(
She was a fantastic vendor; whose products were worth every penny of the purchase price. My deepest condolences to her parents and her boyfriend.
I only ever contacted Shana once about her products. She was very quick to answer, and playful! She was also kind enough to do a follow up with me about her products. I'm saddened that her talents are gone from this world. She will be missed.
Wow, I am in shock ... I feel like the 3D Art community in full has lost a shining star.. :( So so sad :( My deepest condolences to her family, boyfriend and those so close to her. She will be missed
The world loses when a artist passes. No other words have ever rang so true. To lose the vision, the imagination, & the beauty that any artist brings into this world is perhaps the worse & most sorrowful event that can happen. For those who knew her personally it is doubly sorrowful. My heartfelt condolences go out to her parents & to Nuno. Her light will be sorely missed.
My thoughts and wishes go out to Shana's family and friends.
Mas que tristeza! Tão nova! Eu tanto queria conhecê-la em pessoa um dia, pois eu tinha um carinho muito especial por ela. Uma grande pessoa e artista. Poutena eu agora estar na Holanda e não poder assistir com qualquer coisa. Tu ainda tenho a minha casa em Faro no Algarve e um dia gostaria de deixar umas flores para ela.
Meus sinceros condolências para ti Nuno e para toda a família.
My Deepest Sympathy to the Family and Nuno.... I did not know Shana but I did purchase and Love her work... My Prayers are with you in your time of sadness
Lost for words such a beautiful and very talented lady who will be so sadly missed, My thought's are with shana's family and friend's at this very sad time.xxx
I'm under real shock..........
When i receive the mail i thought ...no way!!!
I have to tell, ShanaC was the first vendor and even person i talked with at renderosity. i first asked for an advise on how modify one of her texture from a product i bought. I was so surprised from her kind answer, she explained everything like sharing... and caring ! It has encouraged me to know more about Poser, renderosity and then being myself a vendor here. She also cheered me up when i started and shared passion with Japanese fashion and stores with talked with... i still cannot beleive the new. I'm extremely sad and i would like to join everyone here for most sincere condolences to Shana's family and her boyfriend. This is a huge loss...
i wish to add, Shana is a reference for me. Then, i go to a very small korean church in Paris every sunday and day after tomorrow and the other days i will pray for her.
I still cannot believe it.... We talked soon again before her birthday in may.
Shana ... i guess we all have to learn about your courage, and the way you took life.
We knew by internet, we never met but.... i wanna keep a smile as image of you in my mind. Shana miss you Already !!!!!
I am saddened by this news. My deepest condolences.
Condolences. Extremely sad news.
On the other hand, what a legacy, to have so many friends across the art community.
Condolences. Extremely sad news.
On the other hand, what a legacy, to have so many friends across the art community.
So very sorry to hear this, my prayers are with her family and friends.
What sad, sad news! My heart goes out to her family and friends and all who knew her. Her creative spirit will certainly be missed in the community.
My thoughts and prayers go with Shana and those she left behind. May our memories of her burn strong in our hearts, forever.
I am so sorry for your loss.
A sad passing indeed. Condolences and prayers to her parents, partner and friends. She has made a great impact on the digital art community and I am sure she made a similar impact in the other aspects of her life.
Although I only know Shana through her work, I will miss her greatly. Often, the deciding factor on whether or not I would buy an outfit was whether Shana had made a texture set for it. My sincerest condolences go out to her family and friends as well as all the admirers she had here at Renderosity.
I give you my depest sympathy
for the lost of a great designer
and a great artist
and i hope her work wont be
forget for the futur generation
My sincere condolences. I loved her artistic vision, and I think it reflected something about the person behind it: Happy and colorful... This is very sad.
I can truly say I feel your agony. I too, lost my wife suddenly to a rare illness. I wish I could say that all will be better soon....it won't. I can give this advice: 1. It will take time to resolve this. 2. Don't deny your grief even after months or years. I did. Only to have the wave crash over me later.
3. Don't make promises that you may not keep....you'll only feel guilty about it later.
4. Don't make any life-changing decisions for, at least, a year.
5. Don't play the "what if I had just" game. What is, is what is. Don't burden yourself with guilt.
6. Seek counseling. I did not because I thought I could handle it. I failed miserably and almost fatally. Counseling saved my life.
7. I hate to say it, but the grief will probably get worse. After about 3 months your friends will move on with their lives, and the shock of her passing will wear off.
8. Spend Holidays with your family. Anniversaries will become hated days for a while.
9. Though it is good to remember the good things about your late partner...don't feel guilty as you begin to remember the less stellar times. You loved one was a human...not a deity...realizing this will help in the recovery period.
10. Spiritually, you have been severely wounded. As with any injury, allow yourself to heal. Family and friends are a big help here.
May God bless you and yours.
My heart goes out to you and yours. She will be missed. I am sorry for your loss as we all are.
Shana was indeed a great artist and all her hard work and dedication was shown and appreciated. I am sorry we had to loose one in this community who was so young. She will indeed be missed.
My prayers goes out to all who knew and/or loved her for whatever it is she gave to them. While we moan in discomfort and in our loss. I pray that she is finally at peace and that she is soaring with the angels and still smiling down on use.
Very sad news. My condolences.
I am very saddened by the news. I am a great admirer of her work and the posts above show she was loved by many. I'll miss you.
Minhas condolências. Senti uma tristeza bem grande ao saber da notícia. Tenho certeza de que, por ela, vocês irão superar essa perda.
My deepest condolences to you Nuno, her parents and family. Shana was an amazing artist, person and friends to all. I will always be grateful for the help and inspiration she provided.
May you light the heaven, and make it a better place as you did this world.
A very sad day....she will be missed...my thoughts and prayers for the family and friends
Shana will be missed and my deepest condolences and prays to her family and friends with very sad news.
I just got an email today and I thought it was something about a product update for one of Shana's items. It was the worst and most sad update I have ever received on Rendersoity or anywhere else. I have purchased and used several of Shana's works and absolutely loved them. I'm pretty sure she was the vendor I purchased the most items from.
I am heartbroken to hear this news. I never knew Shana or met her in any way, but I feel like I had some sort of connection to her through her products. I wish her, her family, and all of her loved ones my greatest and most sincere condolences. May Shana forever live on through her accomplishments and her loved ones' memories.
I cannot say anymore since i am beginning to get teary-eyed while writing this, so I will have to end it here.
A great loss. Truly talented and so easy to like. She will be deeply missed.
A really sad event... My sincere condolences... even though I never new her, it's still a very sad thing when someone passes on.
My condolences to Shana's companion on his loss. Shana was a great artists and I'll miss her. She brought great things to this site, some of which I had purchased. She is truly one of those irreplaceable people. We'll all miss her.
How sad. My heart goes out to all her friends and family. Love to you all.
I just got the e-mail, and I am completely shocked. I have a couple of her products. She was SO young...this is truly heartbreaking and a sad tale that you don't know when it is your time to go home. My condolences to her boyfriend and family...she is in a better place. Continue to support her work to support her memory people.
Unfortunately I didn't get to know Shana, but my deepest condolences go out to her family and friends. This is truly saddening.
We spoke several times via email about some technical questions I had in terms of my art work and creating. It's very sad to hear indeed and I too can relate to such an experience so I know some of those same feelings she had. She was indeed a very nice person and took time to respond to my emails as possible. My sincere condolences to all and may God Bless.
My heart and prayers go out to Nuno and the families and friends of a truly talented artist and very brave young woman. What a blessing you must have been to her. May you be comforted and I hope to see things from you in the future. God bless.
My father always told me that the good die young and I've found this to be true but it doesn't help those left behind. A very sad day for me and many others. My deepest sympathy to her family and many many friends.
My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
My condolences to Shana's family, her boyfriend and all her friends. Really sad
My prayers and thoughts go out to Nuno and Shana's family. I am so deeply sorry for your loss.
I'm so sad. And I find no words to say how unfair it is that she had to go so early. But I will always remember her, when I am working with her very nice products. My deepest and sincere condolences go to Nuno, their family and friends.
Rest in Peace, Shana!
My deepest condolences to her friends and family.
She was young. Too young. Shocked and saddened to hear your tragic news. May Shana Rest in Peace.
I am so sorry to hear the sad news. My deepest condolences to Nuno and Shana's family and friends. A great talent and lovely person.
Very sad to hear that this young and talented artist passed away... Shana will live in our hearts as well as in our runtime!
My deepest condolences to her family and friends.
My deepest condolences to her SoulMate, her family, and all her friends. A great talent, gone too soon.
no words.. just tears.
This is really horrid news. Shana was a true artist and I've been a very satisfied customer of hers for years. My condolences to her boyfriend and family.
I am deeply saddened to hear of her passing and reading what her loved ones wrote brought tears to my eyes. She will always be with you Nuno and you will see her again.
My deepest condolences to Shana's family and friends and to her soul mate, Her artistic works were a sunshine for me as it was certainly for all who purchased or simply viewed her creations, I have enjoyed using so many of her creations. She will be sorely missed, but she will have a place in my heart every time I render a scene using her works
Very sad news. My sincere condolences to Shana's family. We lost a talented artist.
My condolences to Nuno and also Shana's family and friends. From what I've read of Shana, she was beacon of hope and inspiration. I did not know her personally, though it hurts as much as if I did. Rest in peace, Shana. You will be sorely missed.
It's worst message from Renderosity ever.
Deepest condolences to Shana's family and all her friends.
This is heartbreakingly sad. My thoughts are with Shana's family and loved ones.

I had just received the email yesterday and found out about this. My most sincere condolences to Shana's family and friends.

So sad to hear this, so young ...
My sincere condoleances to Nuno and Shana's family and friends.
I only knew Shana as a customer. She was indeed a talented Artist and will be sorely missed. Having lost a daughter some years ago, I have some idea of how Parents and boyfriend are feeling. My sincere condolences on your loss.

A very very sad day, she will be missed.
My deepest condolences to her family and friends.
This is a message from Shana's parents;
We just want to thank each and everyone of you who commented here on this article or somewhere else. We were taken a little by surprise by the overwhelming amount of comments, by how many of you knew her and respected her for what she was able to do, by how many of you shared the connection you felt with her even without knowing her personally, all the memories you shared, all the wonderful words everyone wrote about our daughter, how she will be missed and never forgotten, we really appreciate it.
Even if that won't change how sad we feel right now, it's still amazing to know she affected, touched and inspired so many of you just from her laptop, it's amazing that you got to know her and her personality just from what she created and what she wrote, we believe only someone very special like her could do that, we don't know any of you, we didn't have any idea she was this popular and well known, but even through these sad times, we're happy to know that so many of you agree with us, she was special and will always be missed.
We also would like to thank Renderosity and the entire Renderosity team for what they have done for our daughter, for us and now for Nuno, we want to thank you for the condolences card as well as the beautiful plant that you sent to us, it will remain in her room by her window as a symbol of our undying love for her.
We have one final request, we want to ask you all to keep what she created alive, now through Nuno because we are sure that way she will live on through him, we truly believe he is her Soul Mate and that they were always meant to be together. Thank you all.
I just want to thank you all for the comments, I wasn't expecting this many responses and comments from so many of you. As sad as I am right now, as much as I have cried reading what you all have wrote.... it still makes me smile a little (at least on the inside) when I read all you have to share about her, how you cried with me, how you knew her, how she helped and what you thought of her and her work. She's everything to me, she was my best friend, she was my best friend way before being my girlfriend, I can't even believe a girl that amazing actually loved me as much as I love her. She helped me so much just by being with me and I will never feel like I did enough for her, I'll always feel guilty for not having done more to make some of her wishes come true, she just deserved more, a lot more, a lot better... I can't go back now and change anything, unfortunately this will just be something I'll always carry with me....She was and always will be my inspiration, she was so much more than that, I'm truly happy to know she was the same for so many of you...
I'll be completely honest and tell you all that there isn't anything anyone from anywhere can say to me right now that will change how I feel, how much this hurts, how unfair this is, how much I regret not being able to do more for her, how angry I am with everything in my life for this having to be this way. There's just no way that can be fixed, there's nothing I can do, there's nothing anyone else can do for me, there's nothing I can say, I just don't know how I'm supposed to get through this now....everyone says with time it will get better, I don't know if that's true, I hope it is, but I honestly don't know.
I even went and got my first Tattoo, her name on my right wrist, she was always my right hand, I couldn't and would not have done anything without her, it seemed appropriate to have her name tattooed there. She was and always will be a part of me, now she'll always be with me in that way too. She would have loved to see it, I would have loved to be able to surprise her one day with it, I always joked that one day when I ran out of ideas of things I could give her, I would just get her name tattooed on me, I think she always thought I wouldn't be brave enough.....and well, if you can see me now Shana, I told you one day I would, I hope you can see it and I hope you like it, I wish you could have seen it in person....
I just want to thank you all for the comments, the posts, messages, the renders, the sitemails and e-mails, not just here on Renderosity, but DAZ3d, Facebook, everywhere you all are posting, I've been trying to keep up with everything I can find. I'm not going to say it makes me feel much better about anything, nothing ever could right now, but I will say that if it wasn't for that, I know for sure I would just be even worse, so thank you.
This is getting too long, but I start writing and it's hard to stop, I just wanted to thank you all.
I still don't know when I'll be back, but I will eventually try and get back to work, our work, what we did together, what she loved...
But I'll always be close by if you need anything or want to say something to me,
Nuno, I lost my wife in 2010 and it still hurts, still feels like part of me is missing. You have my sympathy and support. Like most, I only knew Shana by her products and her art matched my visions as well. I'll miss her too.
I´m so sorry for your lost.
She will be greatly missed, my deepest condolences to you all
I'm so sorry to hear about your lost. Shana will be greatly missed in our community.
My heartfelt condolences for this great loss of loved ones by your side. The pain must be immense to put it in words. Unfortunately I had no opportunity to meet Shana personally, but what I've read so it must have been a wonderful person. I find it so sad that she had to leave so early and surprising the world. My best wishes are with you and your family.
Sad indeed. Peace be with you and fond memories always. Thank you for carrying on her torch, Nuno. Condolences to all who knew her well. Nameste.
They say that no one ever truly dies as long as there is someone to speak your name, and I am delighted that Renderosity and Nuno will keep her memory alive. I cannot describe the shock I felt when I learned of her passing. Heaven has a new star tonight. My prayers and love to her family and Nuno.
My sypmathies to the family and friends. Though I didn't know her, I often heard her mentioned to be a wonderfull person and reading what has been postet, she must have been even more than that. Everything she gave to this community, to her friends and family will stay with us. So I think in a way her spirit stays.
I'm so sorry to hear this, you two produced a lot of great things together. My condolences to you and your families.
My sincere condolences to the entire family! Unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to meet her online, but your work will be immortalized!
Anderson Soares - aka - Gendragon
A very sad new. I'm very sorry. My condolences to her loved ones.
Yes, carry on with the work, and she will be with you.
I'm so sorry to hear this. I told her that she was my favorite artist and I hoped to be as good as her one day. A great loss for your family.
My condolences to her loved ones.
By: romaker on 8/7/13
Sad loss to all of us, my heart goes out to her family and loved ones.
All of my sincerest condolences to Shana's loved ones.
I thank you for the talent you shared with us, you will be missed, by those whom you touched in the real world, and also by us in the Poser world. May your soul be at peace.
What can you say in times like these? There are no words to express such a loss ... so soon...
But there's something I really believe ... that poeple who left us before their time, didn't just leave, they graduated because they were ready to be something more. They were much more evolved and could move on to somewhere better. I believe that is Shana's case, she graduated in life and even though we lost her here , the sky now has a new shinning star and Heaven a new angel.
And for Nuno. "As pessoas que amamos e que partiram já não estão no lugar onde estavam, mas sim em todo lugar onde estamos"
Been away for a while and have only just seen this. My condolences to you and Shana's family. It must be heart wrenching for all of you.
I don´t knew her ...but i´m so sad to hear this....my condolences to all her family and friends!
My deepest condolences to you, Shana's family and all her friends.
Heartbroken after reading tis.
I did not know Shana.
My condolences to Shana's parents and family as well as Nuno.
My deepest condolences to her parents, Nuno all her loved ones and family. I don’t know what to say other than what I read brought tears in my eyes. My thoughts to all of the people touched by Shana. I am so deeply sorry for your loss.
Hence only takes knowledge and love! two things when more splits most extende.A family and nuno death is dormir.é back to God! jesus is life = wake up! The All my most sincere condolences to the family of Shana and nuno!
Just got back from vacation and found the email buried in my inbox. My deepest condolences to her family, and all who knew her. Nuno your letter made me sense your deep loss and regret and a hint of optimism for the future.
The ground thaws
The rain falls
The grass grows
The seeds root
The flowers bloom
The children play
The stars gleam
The poets dream
The eagles fly
The earth turns
The sun burns
But I die without you
The breeze warms
The girl smiles
The cloud moves
The tides change
The boys run
The oceans crash
The crowds roar
The days soar
The babies cry
The moon glows
The river flows
But I die without you
The world revives
But I know blue, only blue
(Within me blue)
The hand gropes
The ear hears
The pulse beats
The eyes gaze
The legs walks
The lungs breathe
The mind churns
(The mind churns)
The heart yearns
(The heart yearns)
The tears dry without you
Life goes on but I'm gone
'Cause I die without you
From the musical RENT - Without You
I noticed the name change but thought nothing of it. It is so sad when a family or community member dies. Even more so when they were so loved. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Just know it was worth it.

Shana was full of wonderful ideas, and worked with them to give us all great things. She was a genuine artist, she SHARED everything about her Art freely. Seeing her grow as an artist, then vendor, and a Top Vendor was inspiring. Far more than that, it is the sweet person that will be so sorely missed.
