[Aiers] Entreat Me Not
Knight-Brother Reinold smoothed his tabard with its yellow heretic's cross, and made what peace he could with his coming death. Here, near the end, he wondered at last, if his Order had been wrong, and the yellow cross they wore in irony and defiance was, in fact, the truth. For before this War which would now devour him, before he had become a Brother himself, there had been another great conflict, and Brother Knights had gone out from the land of Nortender to fight for the idea that had led the Church to turn its back on them. The simple idea that the Enemy had created nothing of this world, merely corrupted, and thus could not make something so tainted, that it could not be turned away from his power. That the fires of the Enemy should be used against him, and could be safely wielded by one strong of faith. That all things could be redeemed to a higher purpose.
That orcs and men could serve the same God.
And those Knights, his Brothers, had failed, for no idea stays simple when the

"Bog, if I could get you to stan' right there, right up against the wall there."
It was late afternoon in the demon-ruled city of Khar-bad, and the Warg's Breath Tavern was settling into the golden light of the setting sun. In the muddy street outsider, a detachment of mounted succubi and orc troopers was marching past, on their way to the North Gate, bound for some distant battlefield. In the courtyard of the Warg's Breath Tavern, some of the ozcurillo urchins were poking their heads above the ramshackle, overgrown fence to watch the passing parade, but most of the ragged ozcura and orc children - all of uncertain parentage, who hung around the tavern courtyard in the hopes of a handout of food from a well-disposed patron   - were watching with wide-eyed fascination Amphy the Amphibian Girl and Bog the Barbarian.
"I knows, Bog" Amphy the Amphibian Girl - b

Going to visit my little brother, bring him some good junk he left behind when he took off for parts unknown... on my birthday. It's a good thing that I love roadtrips and I love my brother! :D

I won't have much time or interwebs until I get home, so see you all on the 1st!

We Get It, You Vape (Sempai)
So, in a conversation with Daemoria he mentioned how CPU-intensive path tracing is... which is true enough, but I'm using a RTX 2060 to render my images, which really helps speed things up VS a CPU (or four). So I got to thinking... what would take a bit more time and effort to render? And the answer was complex volumetrics

So here's a Flip Fluids fluid simulation of water cascading down the back wall and across the floor, splashing around the ladies... but it's rendered as volumetric fog instead of a solid surface. 

This took just under an hour to render, VS the three minutes that Notice Me Sempai required.

Notice Me Sempai
Some of us want to be 'one of the cool kids' so bad. :no: 

It's totally cringy early adolescent behavior... but if Sempai notices me, it'll all be worth it. :p

I mean, sure, it's traditional to make resolutions at the New Year, but why wait

If you're actually going to be a better person, why would you ever put that off

So screw new years, or Monday, or "Tomorrow"... I'm going be be the best me.

Today.

Right now.

No waiting.

Maybe that will mean more art. Maybe It'll mean less art. It'll probably mean different art. But who knows?

Not me. 


I've got all kinds of internal stuff to work on before I ever get to the external bits, but I do hope that whatever I come up with will be worth working for

'Cause I'm sick of being the old me... and so long as I keep doing the same old things, I'm doomed to reap the same old results. And after 40+ years of the same old results, I'm ready for a change.
