Believe it or not, I actually used this prompt as a writing exercise. I wrote conversations between some of my characters about what kinds of video games they like, and fleshed out their personalities more.
If only I had spent as long on art as I did playing flash games this week, that might have been the strip.
Instead…well…

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

OK, so some minor site changes: I have ditched the Flattr buttons (which no one clicked on) because sometimes they would scramble the site’s code.

I ditched the Bitcoin buttons because no one uses Bitcoins and I don’t even know where my Bitcoin wallet is.

If you’re reading this on your dashboard you won’t even notice.

I was teasing seijimei a bit about a seeing-eye dog in one of his renders being a giant.
Well, maybe it’s just that I grew up with smaller dogs, and by the time I ever had a big dog, I was grown. So really big dogs look “oversized” to me. Of course, sheepdogs and retrievers can get pretty big.
I have that same dog figure, though I’d basically only used it twice. (Peek behind the curtain. There are some props and figures that Poser/DAZ Studio users tend to know and recognize on sight, maybe because there aren’t that many common alternatives to them. The Millennium Dog is one of those.) So I loaded it up, gave it the “German Shepherd” morphs and materials, and a similar pose, and stuck my author avatar and a default-sized “Vicki” next to it.
I guess it’s a reasonable height. It still looks burly for a shepherd, but some of that’s presumably meant to be fluff, and maybe the German shepherds I’ve known were a little scrawny.
If it were for my strip, I’d probably end up scaling it down a tiny bit. >.>

Thanks to niauropsaka for the shaming.

Oh, wow, that was fast! I am impressed. I threw some pretty unusual scenarios at you, I thought.

Pagan is so adorable here.

Good grief, either Oseiko’s a lot smaller than I thought, or that is some kind of Dire Wolf seeing-eye dog. A seeing-eye dog for a giant?

German shepard, actually. :) It’s sitting and Oseiko’s kneeling. There might be a bit of wolf in that dog to make it grow a bit bigger though.

That’s a good enough excuse, right? :p :)

Sure! I figured the giant part could be a hook for a story.

(I’m considering pulling out Victoria 4 / Aiko 4 and a Millennium Dog to look at the relative scaling. Now that I think about it, I seem to recall it being easy to make that dog surprisingly large on accident.)

An edited version of yesterday’s Comix Warriors strip that’s more, “as intended,” and less, “as submitted due to running out of time.”
I’m not sure this is better, but I tried it anyway.
Rendering that fern in the next-to-last panel with raytracing took a long time. It would have taken an hour or more of time I didn’t have yesterday. So the slow processing that led me to print screen and use the view straight from the editor screen may have saved me from missing the deadline, oddly enough.

This might have been better if I hadn’t put it off until the last day. But it likely would have been a different script, too. Another week where the actual script was come up with in the last twelve hours.
That next to last panel is actually from a screenshot because I was running out of time and DAZ Studio was refusing to render the scene. One of the risks of procrastination.

The program crashed three times because it didn’t want to render the shadows I originally had set for panels two and three. Later I lost an hour trying to open a file it seemed to think was too big to work with. Finally I had that scene in the next to last panel, and it just could not render. My neighbors probably heard me say aloud to the machine, “Why do you betray me?”
Sometimes 3D work is fun.
