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.

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.

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.

"If you can't tell, you're a dumb liberal."
"I mean, come on, Pocahontas is a Disney Princess."
"That was a dumb movie."
"Canonically, the most beautiful of the Disney Princesses."
"OK, one, that's crazy, and two, you're missing the point."
"Am I? What's wrong with being Pocahontas?"
"It's not the movie!"
"You have something against Indians?"

I had an idea for a ‘quick’ strip, but pretty late. I’m pushing it back to the 13th. The first panel may look something like this.

Yes, I am trying to post daily again. No, I don't know for certain what if anything I will have posted for VDSD.

I went ahead and joined this year's VDSD anyway. February 10th is the last day to sign up. Deadlines are good, right?

This is a day late for the Planned Parenthood #IDEFY event--
--but I'm just glad I did some art finally.


What do I defy?
I guess I defy the man in the penthouse who thinks a raised middle finger is justification to beat somebody up.

To be honest, I’m not optimistic about the coming year. But ‘Happy New Year’ is the obvious thing to post, and I—I haven’t written a comic strip in 3½ months! I’m sorry.

This is largely a retread on the 3D side. The pose is not changed much from several days ago. There are some minor tweaks you won’t see. New expression, new camera angle, new lights, new 2D background; but no, I don’t think I’m “back” yet. I feel like I’m coming back, but I’m not sure.

I said I didn't want Hillary Clinton to win. Maybe I should have been clear that in a race between her and an aspiring Hitler, I had to concede that he had to lose even if it meant she had to win. I thought she practically had won at that point.

You weren’t supposed to put in the racist who wants to deport millions of people. If this policy is pursued on the timetable Trump has promised, deportation will have to turn into death camps for logistical reasons. Normally, judges would stop it at some point, but the Senate GOP have been refusing to confirm “liberal” judges for a while now, so we can’t count on that. Remember how long it took to stop George W. Bush's illegal detentions? Without a large body of Obama appointees, this may be harder to stop than most Americans assume. This election looks very much like a death sentence to millions of Americans.

I’m sorry I was unclear on this point.

If you voted for Trump, believe it or not, I understand. People had different reasons. I'm not saying you're a Nazi. But now we have to stop him from killing off much of the latino population of the USA.

“Alors, c'est la guerre!”

I’m sorry for the lack of new art in a while.

Apparently I’ve been only mostly dead.

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.
