In celebration of Penn State’s win over Michigan in quadruple overtime, I gladly present a sexy, steamy shower scene starring Polly and Sam! Well, in fact, I would have posted this commission regardless… I just wanted to gloat a bit. That was one crazy fucking game.
Oh, and in case you haven’t noticed, with everyone’s help, I’ve reached my goal for the hardware upgrades! I’ve gotten some seriously large donations from several people, and others who even donated more than once, but the truth is that every single person who donated has been crucial in reaching my goal, and I thank you all. I could not have done it without you guys and gals!
As I mentioned previously, in between working on commissions I’m doing the preproduction for Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion. Part of that preproduction is dressing characters in new outfits. Since, once my hardware upgrade has been complete, the frames and animations of the new comic will be rendered in Octane, Leslie’s new outfit needed to be optimized for that render engine. So here is a sample of how she will appear in the new comic. Hope you like her!
More commissions coming this week.
Hey you, reading this… move your eyes a few inches down and to the right. You see those two new areas in the sidebar marked ‘Hardware Upgrade Goal’ and ‘Donations’? Good. Congratulations, you’ve passed the official Epoch Art Eye Examination… which 9 out of 10 doctors agree is utterly fucking useless in diagnosing eye problems.
However, it does help you help me fix my problem… my hardware problem, that is (OMFG, brilliant segue, Epoch)!
So we set up this little plugin to help track the progress towards my goal of $1,550 USD to upgrade my hardware on my render rig so I can move forward with Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion entirely in Octane. After some long discussion with my new friend/hardware expert/drinker of the beers gazukull, we have come up with a killer rig that will be dual 4 GB GPUs and will outperform any machine I’ve ever owned. Unfortunately, as I had initially predicted, I will in fact need to get a new CPU. The LGA 1156 socket from Intel has been discontinued, so finding an 1156 socket motherboard that has dual PCI-E x16 slots for the two GPUs has been impossible, since none are being manufactured anymore.
