Even with ‘hair’ in front of the face, I think this expression works pretty well.

I'm not quite happy with this facial expression yet.

You know, maybe I should take weekends off. It’s good to have downtime. Granted, my problem lately is that I do renders at the last minute, but I could just not bother trying to post something every day and have something better when I do post. It’s good to have non-deadline days.

On the other hand, I still have angles of this scene I haven’t shot. I can keep digging into it and tweaking it. That’s something, right?

I may have re-imagined the background a bit, but this scene is more or less what I was trying to do on July 31, before I decided I had too many details to fix and I had to stop and just post a close shot.

Yesterday I went back, posed the arms properly & added some magnets to clothes in a few places. That set me up for a pretty good shot from another angle, posted yesterday.

Today I finally rendered an angle showing Teresa’s right hand. I like the shadows on this one. Also, today’s 2D background mashes up elements of the backgrounds I made for the previous two images of this scene.

Maybe I should do abstract art for a while.

Who is this? It looks kind of like Jenny Everywhere, but Jenny Everywhere wears a scarf! Mysterious!

Sorry, no comic strip this Wednesday after all.

I did sort of name him after Brian Eno, but really I just had to call him something. Apparently, given a wiremesh sphere, I can pretty quickly manage to sculpt a passable human head, even in a program I just got, with controls unlike what I’ve used before. That’s…not really that surprising, somehow.

I still don’t know how to export textures from Sculptris into DAZ Studio (I really have had it less than a day, and I haven’t read all the documentation), so I just did new materials in DS for Brian. I think they look all right.

I actually painted Steve in Sculptris, making him look even sillier, but I exported him without his texture and lost it. I literally just installed the program today.

For half a decade I have been using other artists’ OBJ files in DAZ Studio. It's high time I expanded my tool set. And Sculptris is freeware from the people who make ZBrush, and seems like it may help.

Ellery’s father! I don’t know what I should change from “15 years ago.” Yeah, I guess this body shape still works for middle-aged Claude. I was thinking about receding his hairline more. For now, I’ve given him “Mr Scott” hair. I may change it back, though.

Although the two strips Staci Roberts Petrezza has appeared in are set maybe 15 years apart, the only real physical difference in her design so far is her hair. For the younger version I stuck her face behind sunglasses. When I dug the scene file out again two years later, I just changed her hair to what I'd already planned as her "older" hairstyle.

I probably could have added some lines to her face, though.

I may be writing again, but it's not going to be coming out fast. Unless tomorrow I suddenly decide comics are a waste of time and write it as prose.

Late yesterday I decided that my artwork this hot summer needed a preponderance of swimsuits. Also redheads for some reason. And hey, look, Ellery’s mother is conveniently redheaded!

Read more if you want to see me ramble about vocabulary for some reason. )

Oh, and these two have swapped typefaces from the previous strip Ellery's mother appeared in, back in 2014: "Ellery needs air." A minor touch only I care about, but there it is.
