Happy Star Wars Day to you all!
As SDCC steadily approaches (July 8th – July 12) and my income just as steadily wanes, I find myself once again having to add the dreaded “ripcord date” to my project calendar. I was paid out from my other markets for my April sales and things are not looking so great financially. I will find myself in dire straights by the beginning of June, and though my calendar indicates a completion date for Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion near and around mid-June, there is absolutely no certainty. The difference between the concrete release dates of image sets and the more elusive dates of comics is that I never know how many pages a comic will be, nor can I estimate just how long setting up an animation will take (could be several hours or several days based on complexity) or render (typically takes days). With image sets, I know in advance how many frames it will be, how long it
I had myself a long, stress-free weekend of relaxation, so I apologize for not posting anything for over a week. But I wanted to offer up the redone texture for Clara with the new areola/nipple texture and adjusted skin tone, and allow you all the opportunity to vote to either keep the new texture, or go back to the original.
So the clear winner was texture #5 from the poll post I ran last month. A lot of people wanted no change, but opted for #5 due to the fact that they most resemble Clara’s current areola. #1 was also a close contender, so I went ahead and did a version of the redone skin texture with those as well for you to vote on.
