Oh, wow, this has been a long year.

I didn’t produce very many renders to choose from the last two months. But I was doing some creative experimentation earlier in the year.

To be honest, I’m not optimistic about the coming year. But ‘Happy New Year’ is the obvious thing to post, and I—I haven’t written a comic strip in 3½ months! I’m sorry.

"Oh, for crying out loud! Pick a pose, pick an expression, and render something to post!"

Once I started moving dials, this was easier than I thought. I have had some weird artist's block lately.

This is largely a retread on the 3D side. The pose is not changed much from several days ago. There are some minor tweaks you won’t see. New expression, new camera angle, new lights, new 2D background; but no, I don’t think I’m “back” yet. I feel like I’m coming back, but I’m not sure.

I said I didn't want Hillary Clinton to win. Maybe I should have been clear that in a race between her and an aspiring Hitler, I had to concede that he had to lose even if it meant she had to win. I thought she practically had won at that point.

You weren’t supposed to put in the racist who wants to deport millions of people. If this policy is pursued on the timetable Trump has promised, deportation will have to turn into death camps for logistical reasons. Normally, judges would stop it at some point, but the Senate GOP have been refusing to confirm “liberal” judges for a while now, so we can’t count on that. Remember how long it took to stop George W. Bush's illegal detentions? Without a large body of Obama appointees, this may be harder to stop than most Americans assume. This election looks very much like a death sentence to millions of Americans.

I’m sorry I was unclear on this point.

If you voted for Trump, believe it or not, I understand. People had different reasons. I'm not saying you're a Nazi. But now we have to stop him from killing off much of the latino population of the USA.

“Alors, c'est la guerre!”

I’m sorry for the lack of new art in a while.

Apparently I’ve been only mostly dead.

Lately it seems like when I actually am working on art, it’s not something I’m happy enough with to publish. I’m not sure what I have even rendered the last two days.

This is from a few days ago. I had suits on the brain, and did some materials work on a suit for Ellery.

When did I render this? Yesterday? It feels longer ago.

I did some revisions on the tall woman from the background of the shot I posted five days ago. Not that this shot has any scale references, but I did rescale her. I think I’ll keep her about 10 cm shorter than I had her in that shot. So I guess she’s “Grace” now instead of “Big Grace.” She’s still rather tall, though.

I haven’t been using the more up-to-date versions of DAZ Studio. They changed the interface, and I don’t like it. But I noticed today, while looking for something else, that DS 4.8 included free support for the Optitex dynamic clothes. So I experimented with that a little. One item of clothing in this scene is dynamic—and it’s disappointing, actually. I still had to go in and fix the image with magnets. And the dynamic cloth is touchy. When I moved an arm trying to fix another problem, it reset, so I draped it again, and then the magnet I had to fix pokethrough didn’t work with the new drape….

So, that was a thing I tried. I think I’ll mostly stick with my ‘archaic’ program version and my magnets.

I’m back!

I didn’t know what to call this one. It’s really just showing something I was working on yesterday, but if I did it right, it’s not obvious how much work I put into it.

Is it weird to tuck a cardigan into jeans? At least I think that was a cardigan once. I added a morph to do that after adding morphs to go over the jeans. I guess I did a better job on this one, because it was the one to get rendered.

There’s a bit of randomness to this. The very tall woman in the background was going to be part of the scene, but then was moved to the background to disguise how stupidly tall she is in case I change that later. At least she is no longer wearing high heels on what appears to be grass.

Ellery is maybe dressed more for, “late summer, after swimming,” than for autumn, but I’m posting this in October, so that’s the title. There are reasons she could be wearing a bikini under her clothes, and this shot is probably really set in September.
