  • Okay, good news/bad news time: The good news is this site appears to be largely normal on the visitors’ side. The bad news is on the administrative side, things still need fixing. So, expect the site to have some bugs and glitches for a while. Don’t worry, Dream Angel and Techwarrior are teamed up to squash the problems as quickly as possible!

    Wonderful news, plush action figure lovers! 4 pound fishing line makes great sewing thread! This means fabric is more likely to tear before the thread breaks! The action figures you love will be able to handle a lot more love!

    There’s been a lot of buzz since yesterday about something totally new in the Facebook group: scenes viewable in 360 degrees! This is something worth checking out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DreamAngelsParadiseComicBooks/permalink/1418171708245347/
    By the way, have you noticed Techwarrior #5 and Techwarrior #1-5 have no product images? Please…[Read more]

    So exciting! Techwarrior #5 has been released! The question now is what book to do next? Dream Angel #1, with some story updates to match the art, Techwarrior #1 or a new one-shot that’s ready for rendering? Decisions, decisions…

    Morning!
    How’s your day going?
    3D library’s back to normal and studies for using Daz3D’s Iray render engine have gone well. Techwarrior #5 will be the first to use it and so far, the book looks fantastic! The Iray render style is photo realistic, so scenes look like you can reach out and actually touch the characters as if they were real. Even…[Read more]

    Had a major problem with the library hard drive, but just about everything is reinstalled and should be in full working order soon.

    Had a problem with the new external hard drive, but that’s been mostly fixed. Just some file moving to do to get it back to normal. With luck, everything will work normally once the files are put back where they belong. After that, studies and render practice can resume. There might even be a little one-shot comic…[Read more]

    This site briefly had a problem, but that’s been fixed. Meantime, a whole bunch of plush figures have been made ready. Okay, they’re bald, faceless and laying around in underwear, but the question remains: who will they become?

    How’s your day going?
    Been doing some sewing lately to reclaim pins for other projects. I’ve also kept busy starting to rework characters to more realistic models. Along the way, also making chibi figures of the characters that’ll appear for humorous emphasis within the stories.

    Seems Carrara is the key to making my own HDR images. These help speed up iray render times, but I’ll be continuing the search for ways to make it faster. In the end, it might not ever be as fast as 3Delight, but I plan to make it as fast as possible. The results tend to be worth the wait more often than not.

    Made a wonderful discovery yesterday and it looks to be one that’ll greatly speed up even Iray render times. The trick currently is smoothing out the kinks that showed up in the first attempt. It’s true what they say: “Nothing goes right the first time you try it!”

    How’s your day going?
    Still moving files to externals, but once that’s done, all the 3D stuff will be available on the one drive and it can travel with the tablet if needed. That means work on the comics will be mobile! True, the tablet can’t do Iray apparently, but it can setup a scene and do a rough 3Delight render in most cases. Sort…[Read more]

    How’s your day going?
    I’ve been stirring up chibi size mischief! The fun of it is I’ve managed to rig a model successfully for the first time! It’s an adorable chibi horse and he’s just too cute for words, so I’ll let him speak for himself!

    How’s your day going?
    Hope everyone’s having a happy holiday season. I get it, the question is “you celebrate Christmas, why say “happy Holidays”?” Well, that’s a show of respect. It’s not about being politically correct, it’s about being respectful to the diverse holidays of the month. That said, Happy New Year is next in line. Well, the…[Read more]

    Merry Christmas!!

  • Evening!
    How’s your day been?
    Bit of a slow, but interesting day. The house has made nice progress so far. The fun is seeing it look more and more like a house with each piece that’s fixed.

  • Morning!
    How’s your day going?
    Finally solving the problem with the house model that’s been in the works. The problem has been with UV mapping and applying textures. While the model itself has always looked good, the textures have been a headache. Presently, I’m in the process of adjusting every individual piece of the model so the UV maps apply…[Read more]

  • Let’s have some fun here!
    “You will always find me in the past. I can be created in the present, But the future can never taint me. What am I?”
    Think you can solve it?

  • Morning!
    How’s your day going?
    Sewing clothes and studying lights and cameras. How better to spend a gloomy December day?
