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.

‘Why are your self-portraits so pretentious?’
'Because I’m an artist!

Also I’m in a hurry. I want to post something before it gets late today.

I really wanted to post a GE2017 render at a reasonable hour today. Well, it’s now 20:37 in Britain, so I failed at that. But if May somehow manages to hang on as PM, at least we can reuse this the next time.

Just experimenting. Bleh.

I’m not dead after all. I’ve been flaking on more than just art the last week.

I have three other things I want to be doing right this minute, but I don’t want to go several days without posting art again. So, a quick selfie.

Cut for exposed breasts. )

This is an odd strip, but this thing was bothering me. TV Tropes has an analysis page on the trope “Boobs of Steel,” where a strong woman (especially in comics and animation) is also drawn with large breasts. But I’ve noticed that some people don’t seem to understand the difference in real life.

I’m not dead. Sorry for not posting anything for about a week. Partly I’m distracted by other things. But somehow I’ve been getting weirdly blocked when it comes to actually posing figures in scenes; this has been a problem for a while now. It makes it hard to do anything like a comic.

Hot weather and green growing things.

A tiny bit of animation.

I stand with Planned Parenthood

Oh, is that today? I just happened to have this pink suit lying around.

I look at this and wonder, not for the first time, if I should add some bulk to the arms of my cartoon avatar.

This is, like most of what I post anymore, a super lazy daily shot. This is the same outfit & almost the same pose as I had for my Thanksgiving comic over a year ago. I actually was starting to post it and realised I still had the “autumny” makeup on. …I decided at least to change that.

I was a little disappointed with this and didn't post it several days ago. But I'm posting it today because I haven't been getting much work done and thought this was probably better than what I did render today.

I was going to make these a double exposure but I didn’t like it very much.
raspberryrain: (cutie mark?)


I thought Elena was a good, common, pretty name that I’d somehow never used for one of my characters. Oh, yeah, that’s why. Well, the names are different in rhythm and syllable length, so it didn’t occur to me until later.

Characters:
Elena Nicodemo, Elaine Spratt, & the artist

I have generally kept cartoon Nia’s hair in twists or braids to avoid giving it a definite texture. A few years ago I tried giving my cartoon self a very straight hairstyle; I didn’t like it as much as I expected.

I think this type hair more blatantly tips my avatar’s ethnic coding away from “Mediterranean” & toward “West Indian,” but I guess the twists did that anyway.

Today I played with this lighting setup on different figures.
