I didn’t hurry this enough to meet the Comix Warriors deadline. But I did one! Here is my “Snacks” comic for Comix Warriors week 54.

Well, I went to sleep for six hours in the middle of working on this. Because of not sleeping Sunday, which was very foolish. Since I’m already late, I decided it was simpler and quicker to leave Jeannette’s hand in this position. even though I kind of wanted to have it on Ozzy’s thigh or just poking inside his shorts’ waistband.

This is of course modified from the scene I built for a strip five weeks ago, which I seem to have called both “lazy day in bed." & “lazy feet." Shooting at this angle lets me avoid worrying about adding windows and doors, and also the question of whether their bedroom wallpaper really has that bloody tampon oddly red stylised-bulrushes-at-dawn pattern.

This was going to be just a daily render, but it turned into a sort of strip.

Something a bit different.

(Comix Warriors Week #53: review your favorite comic)
I discovered Nana well after it started, in fact after I was already working on my own alleged comic. At times I would look at it and feel l like I was wasting my time.

We haven’t seen Domingo in a while. Wonder what he’s been up to?

A character design from a while back, almost a year and a half ago, that apparently has never made it into…anything I have rendered, let alone published?

Well, it’s noon somewhere!

It’s been a rough few days. I may have to change my noon deadline, or work farther ahead.

Of all the characters in my 3D work, Walker was one of the first conceived. I came up with the idea for him, and named him, before I even started doing 3D renders. When I did get into 3D, but before there even was a comic, I considered making him the star of an interactive story.

The problem with having the character concept first, and then a long time where he was just in my head, was then designing his visual appearance. If I start with a sculpt, I can mostly grow a character around it. If I start with a more abstract personality concept, building a sculpt that “looks right” is harder, because my imagination doesn’t really know what it wants, or something.

At one point, when he was going to be the star of an interactive game, he was going to be a bit burlier, built a lot like Luke here. But part of me wanted him to be skinnier.

When I built Anton, I almost decided that he was Walker. He had the hair prop I had been planning to use for Walker, and he was roughly the right physical type. But then I thought maybe he was too pretty, or too skinny, or something. Somehow I decided just to call that sculpt Anton, and try again.

So then I started the comic, and then started to bring the rock band, Walker’s band, into it. But I had no Walker actually built. I thought about making comics where the rest of the band stand around and wonder where he is. That affected how I saw the character. He became more defined by depression than he had been previously.

I finally sculpted something to be Walker, officially. And I thought I’d sabotaged myself. Anton had claimed the Kozaburo long hair, so Walker got stuck with an old AprilYSH hair figure to look different. And I thought I’d overworked the body. He wasn’t quite good-looking enough anymore. He was a little too goofy-looking. Maybe I should have just used the Anton design. But it was done, and I didn’t want to go over it again.

Later, I sculpted Luke to be another character’s love interest, and actually I think he’s better-looking than either Anton or Walker. I wasn’t thinking about it, I don’t think, but he does kind of look like Walker could have if I hadn’t insisted on making him skinny. But I’m glad he’s not Walker. I can let him be a more relaxed character without all that baggage.

...and I just realised that I haven't actually posted anything with Luke in it, and barely anything of Anton. Well, I built them, anyway.

I was unhappy with yesterday’s daily render, so I tweaked it:

While I was at it, I redid Saturday’s in the same format as the other daily renders have been:
