Star Crossed
“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.”

The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword
"The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp."
~Terry Pratchett

This little bit of humor was done for the RRRR contest on the Daz forums.  This month's theme is "Muddled  Maxims," meaning we are to render a funny take on an old adage based on the random items we pulled from our library.  I managed to pull two pro bundles this time around, so I was REALLY glad I've got the new PC. No way the old GPU could even look at this scene without crying.

Rendered in Daz Studio.  Postwork in Photoshop CC.

Celecia

Nyx ~ Goddess of The Night
"They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night."
~Edgar Allan Poe

Dynamics and Rendering done in Daz Studio 4.10 (dForce/Iray), Postwork in Photoshop CC

I love making older content work with newer software technology.  Dress, cape, and hair draped in Studio with dForce.  (The hair took a while to simulate, even with the new PC.)  Had to add weight maps to the dForce nodes for the hair and cape to make them drape properly, but I was very pleased with the results!

Ain't No Rest for The Wicked

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 23, 2018, 5:30 PM
I really don't have much to say.  I just grew tired of dropping by my dA page and seeing a several-year-old journal entry.  I wish I had something more profound to add, but I don't usually even have time to pee during a normal workday, so I'm afraid this is about as deep and meaningful as I'm likely to be these days.

Peace, all.  Keep making art. ♥

Proud of our Wisconsin teachers. When the product of your labor is a child's future, you must stand up for what you know is right. Funding my publicly-educated autistic son's paraprofessional should come before funding freeway interchanges. Period.

I may be soft in your palm but I'll soon grow
Hungry for a fight, and I will not let you win.
My pretty mouth will frame the phrases that will
Disprove your faith in man.
So if you catch me trying to find my way into your
Heart from under your skin...
Fast as you can, baby scratch me out, free yourself
Fast as you can...
