Fire, Ice, Postwork

Dossier 006: Fire in the Ice - Frame 013I’ve been really busy (and stressed out) planning my big birthday celebration in Brazil during Carnival 2015. The trip has already cost me a fortune and I still don’t have my tourist visa because I’m still waiting on my passport. Apparently 80% of people book travel before realizing (or applying for) a tourist visa for the country they’re visiting. And it doesn’t help that I’ve chosen the most expensive country to get a visa to. I am not even sure if my friends and I are going to be able to go. There is at least two of us that are going to have to look into rushed visa services when our passports arrive in

Fire in the Ice – Coming Friday, February 6th!

Dossier 6: Fire in the Ice - Coming Early February 2015I’m actually embarrassed to share this image. This picture was meant to be the announcement/teaser image for the new set. But it came out looking like garbage. It is Ember’s Game all over again. Fucking nonsense splotchiness against surfaces from light emitters as well as unacceptable levels of noise. Back when Ember’s Game was released, we were using Octane 1.0. But we’ve progressed to Octane 2.0 and whatever revision it’s currently on, and still the fucking elephant in the room with this software has not been addressed. (See edit at bottom of this post)

I’m gonna let any aspiring 3D artists in on a little secret about Octane: IT CAN’T FUCKING RENDER INTERIORS. Full stop. Period. It can’t fucking do it. It is fucking garbage. Unless you put windows in the room that allow you to get light in the room with their physical sun/sky module or HDRI, you’re going to get results like this. Octane’s forums are filled with bullshit workaround and fixes: limit the reflective materials in the scene,

Hot Goat’s Milk!

Polly Talbish - Concept Art for Dossier 6: Fire in the IceWelcome to 2015, ladies and gentlemen! I apologize for the extended absence, but I left town before Christmas like a whirling dervish and spent a week just recuperating from the holidays after I returned. I sincerely hope that all of you had a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, and memories! 2015 is the Year of the Goat, soooo… I guess drink some goat’s milk for posterity? I think that’s how it works. Leg of lamb with hot goat’s milk is the traditional dinner… I think… Don’t quote me on that, though. I let my astrology practitioner’s license lapse years ago.

Okay, first up for 2015 is going to be Dossier 006: Fire in the Ice, featuring the indomitable Polly “Pixie” Talbish of the Dark Rift series, coming early February (date to be announced soon). In case you don’t recall, this was the second most popular concept voted on in the open poll for dossier concepts (you can revisit that post right here). This concept was the only one that

Hurry! Vote on the Next Dossier!

Clara Ravens Ep. 4: Colombina’s Illusion is, once again, going on the back burner. There is just no way it will be done before Christmas, and although I’ve been in a better spot financially since I started selling the dossiers and getting my products in other market places, I simply cannot stretch it for more than two months it seems. Christmas is fast approaching and I’ve realized I need to immediately switch gears if I want to put something out in time for the holidays so I can go home and see my family.

So we are going to get to work right away on a new dossier. However, in order to bring the most popular option into production, we have set up a poll for you all to vote in. So choose which dossier you’d like to see most. We are going to run this poll for only a few days because, honestly, I am going to need to get to work on it ASAP.
