Ok a quick update about where I'm at now. Some of you might have seen me post all sorts of shit over at Art of Darkness and Renderotica and off course over here on my blog, but I am still very busy doing my erogenesis stuff. So here's a list of what that actually is and where I am at with it:
Comic! Comic! Comic! Comic! I am now rendering the first scene of the comic called "Lali Lite #1: The Gentleman's Club". It was fucking slow going at first because I hadn't been in comic mode since I started preparing Lali's Bits for the store back in December of 2012! So I enlisted the girls to ask for your patience while I make this comic. Hihi!
Also, silly idiot that I am, I thought up the idea of a 'Lali Lite' with the intention to make a comic format that would be quick and easy to do to keep you entertained, but I am a victim of my own addiction for storytelling and detail!!!!!!!!! (like Epoch can testify to, right?). So I wouldn't be surprised if this comic will be longer than my other comics. Not to mention that this comic will also be introducing the three new characters, Laila, Julie and Christina (although Christina won't be taking part in the action just yet). More info on the girls over here. Also, the release of Poser Pro 2014 with all its new capabilities and gadgets hasn't helped me streamline anything, but just demands more perfection! There will also be some surprises in the comic... you'll see. Anyway, I just hope it will be worth the wait.
Here is a sneak preview of the first scene:
I made some detailed lip morphs for the Lali System for when she has to wrap them around some elongated object... just in case... you know...
Project E is on the shelf for the meanwhile, although I recently discovered a technical loophole that might help me speed up the development. I tried implementing it not so long ago but got stuck with mesh corrections (that just take a fucking long time to do). Right now I am busy with scene 1 (of 2) for the comic, and once that's done I'll try again and see if I can prep a prototype of Project E to use in the comic. If I succeed, it will be a hybrid between Project E and V4 (V4's head on PE) just to get the development going. If that works, then I can transfer it to the new mesh.
Concerning my admin role on Renderotica, it was primarily to help out with announcements and some graphics etc. I am not in any way a moderator, I've never been a forum person. But about the new Renderotica, it is definitely changing and I can understand the worries people are having, and it seems that the crowd is kind of changing over there with certain people leaving and others arriving.
For me personally, I've always been more of a gallery user than anything and it has therefore only become more interesting, because posting pictures has become easier, the site and presentation seems to improve every day, and the gallery features currently being developed seem very promising. The planned subscription sites also have potential, and I think I wanna try post mini-comics on there. Don't be too quick to leave Renderotica, I think it has the potential to become one of the best sites in 3D art once these teething problems are ironed out. I am honestly excited about it.
I just did a review on Affect3D's Girlfriends 4 Ever. Check it out! I found it quite exciting to do because it was my first review, and that of quite an epic piece of work by the owner of Affect3D! Let me know if I did well as a reviewer! Or not haha!
I made a tutorial recently called 'Anatomy of a render' and I hope to make more of them some time. I got some awesome comments on it and didn't realise it was that helpful. I'll gladly try make some more, when I have time. Let me know what you'd like to know about, any particular render you'd like me to explain?
