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 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.
"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?"
This is a day late for the Planned Parenthood #IDEFY event--

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.

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.

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 dynamicand 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.
