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 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.

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.
