I was feeling really productive yesterday, even if I didn’t get a comic done. I customised this one-piece yesterday, and I’m really happy with it. (Both the colours and the custom magnet to fit my author avatar’s bust.) I also finally learned how use shadow bias, which admittedly would have been good to know before now.
Today, I feel like I haven’t gotten quite as much done.
But actually I did some work on eye surface specularity that I learned something from! It just isn’t in this shot. It was earlier, while working on a scene I’m not sure when or if I’ll ever post. So, yeah, I didn’t do a whole lot of artwork today, and what I worked on the longest isn’t what I’m posting. But I really did do some work I’m proud of! OK, I feel better now.
I created this character design back in October, before I quit doing art for a while.
I don’t really remember if I had any actual plans for her. I kind of wonder if she was even meant to be in my main setting. Maybe she was even meant to be doubly fictional, like a character Ellery knows from somewhere? Eh, I probably just made that up while trying to remember now. Oh well.
I named her Calliope Jones–which I just now looked up to see if that is anyone’s name. OK, she is not named after the band, nor after the Arleen Sorkin character! I just thought it sounded good.
She’s working outside today. That’s all I know.
I had open a file with Rosalea, and it’s been a while, and I was changing her hairstyle, and at one point, I thought, just how different are she and Teresa, physically? I mean, they’re kind of similar builds, both at least vaguely Afro-Hispanic, and I don’t think I’ve ever had them in the same scene, nor even thought about it.
OK, so. Huh. They don’t actually look alike, that’s good. But I was actually a little surprised at the specific ways in which they look different. As I said, it’s been a while.
