    Morning!
    How’s your day going?
    Found a solution to the triangluated faces problem I had with a house model I was working on a while back and so I’ve been busily working on that, giving the computer a much-needed break after the marathon of HDRI renders it did for the remaining scenes of the new Dream Angel #1.

    Good news, Techwarrior fans! Techwarrior #1-5 Collection has finally gone live in print! http://www.indyplanet.us/product/149208/

  • Morning! Happy Mother’s Day!!
    How’s your day going?
    I’ve officially setup the last HDRI of the new Dream Angel #1 for rendering! While it renders, I’ll be setting up plan books for later books to come. Once it finishes, new scenes ought to render… maybe not super fast, but certainly faster. Most definitely looking forward to this new book. How about you?

  • Evening!
    How’s your day been?
    There’s been a couple mild changes to this site – specifically, this activity streams page. You’ll find new share buttons available and instant messaging among members is now available. This means you can talk to me in real time as long as you’re logged in. Pretty cool, huh?

    Progress on the new Dream Angel #1 is slow (as usual) but steady. Page 16 is currently in progress and looks wonderful.

    The new Dream Angel #1 is just over half done and looks breathtaking! Custom HDRI images help considerably for exterior scenes, but they’re not quite as good about interior scenes, I’ve found. Yet, they have been an incredible help making the scenes look wonderful. The release goal is July 4th and if progress remains…[Read more]

    Site’s back to normal and there’s a new version of Dream Angel #1 in the works. I’ve even figured out how to make my own HDRI images. While it’s not very fast making the HDRI’s themselves, they do speed up renders with characters in the scene and can be reused without having to load the entire set. Instead, they…[Read more]

  • 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…

    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.

    How’s your day going?
    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?

    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!”
