Mad Art Skillz!

Sorry it’s been awhile. I had to wait until the Wife recovered from proofreading my last post. She’d fallen into a boredom coma and had a “do not resuscitate” clause. I’m hopeful this time I can be more entertaining. ;-)

The deck plans supplement is going well. I’m at least halfway done, if not more. The last few days I’ve been doing artwork, and I’ve been experimenting with a new style. Basically, I’m using the sketch render functionality in Poser 7, and mixing that with a regular render. I’m still debating whether this new style is any better (or worse) than a regular render. However, since a recent review was badmouthing my wicked art skillz, I’ve been obsessing about it. Here are some samples. Please comment on what you think of them, but remember any tomatoes you throw will be hitting your own monitor:

    Yes! More stuff like the droid picture there.

    I like it. There's just enough going on and just enough background detail to keep it interesting without becoming too distracting.

  2. So, you're saying you hate the other one?? (Just kidding.)

    Thanks for the feedback. I really like how it came out, so I'll be using that style a lot more. :-)

    Yeah, there's nothing inherently wrong with the second picture, but I had nothing revelatory to say about it, unfortunately.

  4. Sorry, I was just playin'. ;-)
