    Changes in figure over time (right, left, center) from the back.  Interesting that while working in mirror mode, with the grey model, the form is much better, in terms of the overall sculpt, but at the expense of quite a bit of surface dynamic where extensive smoothing was done.  For this particular technique, some combination of the two is probably ideal, to maximize the light play on the surface.  Will have to think about how to go about that more precisely. Not the best lighting angle for the boots in this particular image

    Front view over various iterations, no particular order.  Figure with the boots is the most recent in this shot.  Kept a little bit more of the subsurface distortion to preserve the line effect.  Boots get kind of a particalized effect here, which kind of reminds me of a star treck transporter scene.  When the image is more complete, will revisit that technique and see how it looks on the full figure.

    Here's the grey version, without the crackling (see previous page for the beginning of this series). 
    Start of some wing forms, which I'll experiment with, since I like the light effects and some of the shape

    Our lady of electric light in her current form, front and back, one with boots, one without.

    Played around with hair-styles a bit.  Not overly satisfied with any of the results.   If I feel patient I might start doing strand clusters, but that's a really slow process.  Going to have to think about it some more.   Toying with doing more on the one side shaved (less memory consumptive), but that is probably a full session just getting everything where I want it
    Might cave in and go external, or just do a bandana or some kind of headgear instead.  Face accidentally misaligned, so I'm going to have to put all that back together. Probably redo the eyes, bend the corners of the lips a bit. Anyhow, will pick an approach and remove the things I'm not using and get back to work on the outfit.   Possibly just move on to try something else, since not going to have a lot of extra time this week, it appears.

    One of about twenty images taken, while the machine was battling for which form to draw first.  Flipped through all sorts of permutations.  Didn't want to overload it, imaged two or three at a time, waited until it started to sort, did more.

    HDMI not found.  Card port will run a monitor.   Headset cable is most likely toast, cable is crimped and coating ripped.. hopefully that's the problem.  Anyhow no more rift until I can swing a replacement.  Last project I was working on is this one stamp dragon, so he'll have to hold down the fort.

    Seriously!  Think I'm getting the shakes over here!  Fortunately, a bit of luck my way, and the package is en route.   Hoping that resolves the issue, and gets here before I completely lose my mind.  Why they don't have an overnight shipping option is beyond my comprehension... 

    Edit:  Have this in my possession now.  Works.  Excited.
