A late update today, just showing something I worked on today. I was adding morphs to these sandals for a bulkier woman, and had the idea to put additional morphs into the toe-straps to allow the character to lift her toes and stretch them.
I wish I’d saved the D-forms. I might have been able to redo this so the sandals would follow her toes automatically.
[Edit, November 20: I redid the letters to be a little clearer. The old version is still on my personal tumblr or here.]
I was over four hours too late for Comix Warriors Week 58.
I had a script idea days ago that I didn't like very much, so I kept putting off working on this strip. Today I decided to do something different; I was thinking about something a friend said about Net Neutrality, and it seemed like a good subject for an Elaine Spratt theory. Sorry for the arcane subject matter, but I hope some people find it interesting.
(Opinions expressed by the characters are not necessarily those of the author. OK, I sort of agree with Elaine here, this time.)
The other day, I left a really nitpicky critique on someone else’s work on dA because it bugged me. (And I downplayed what actually bothered me and pretended it was technical, when really I didn’t like the subject. But the technical stuff did bother me too.)
So today I was worrying a lot about little wrong geometries and bad physics in this shot. It’s mostly OK, I hope. Posting a little late because I tried rendering it with raytracing, which takes a long time with LaFaonne’s hair. And then I ended up not using that in the end anyway—this is with deep shadow maps—because the shadow strengths seemed not to fit the lights. Weird.
(And because I decided to work on this scene idea, I am no closer to getting a comic strip for Comix Warriors done.)
