March 2, 2018 Getting back into some of my old projects. Going to be working on Lucid again in-between other things. Already  redoing her sleeves.

November 16: It has been quite a while. Business has been unrelenting and I am planning to start a manga in 2018. I have every intention to finish Lucid but a lot is going on at once. I appreciate that people continue to visit this page to check out the model. I don't play MS anymore since everyone moved from Windia to Bera. I will post any updates to my schedule that allow me to resume work on Lucid. Thanks again all!
September 16: More work than expected. Still on hold.
September 8: Preparing for Hurricane Irma. Project is on hold.
September 2: Been busy with business but finally got to a good point to post current work. Hated how the layering came out, need to redo. Will I ever finish this damn thing lol.
August 24: Load of work came through. Posting current W.I.P tonight. Shortened fingers, added textures.
August 15: Remapping model. Making absolute master file.
August 11: Ass load of work came in. Added rest of dress texture. Added leg texture. Darkened eyebrow. Going to start face/makeup/ear texture.
August 8: Parted and adjusted eyes, just about got it. Added textures to master model. Loads of work came in.
August 5: Torso texture looking good. Adjusted eyes to not look so angry; need to part more. Testing eyebrows to give distinctive genteel look. Working on eye textures.
August 3: Need to adjust eyes, look too mad. Playing with textures.
August 1: Almost finished layering hair. Adjusted upper thigh and panties (Yes, lol). Working out torso texture.
July 27: Work came up. Fused ears to head. Finished beads. Layering hair.
July 22: Added more beads. Need to tweak some pulling away from head. Starting texture of breasts and waist.
July 22: Started hair beads. Testing eyes. Filled sleeves.
July 19: Added hair ornaments. Added front details.
July 17: Closed head, redid ears, tweaked hair, redid/added earrings, started beads, redid buckle on armbands.
July 16: Haven't forgotten Lucid. Back to work on her. Back into MS as well. Add me if you'd like, info at bottom.
July 1: More work came up. On hold yet again!
June 29: Started cape. Scaled hat.
June 22: Started roses and layers of hair. Added earrings and new boots. Trimmed dress.
June 19: Found time to finish boots. Work piled up. Need to add to master model.
June 13: Refining boots.
June 12: Finally found time to finish hands. Gotta add to master model.
June 8: Ton of calls and work came through @_@
June 4: Started hands.
June 3: Much to my surprise this model creeps some people o-o... mostly the eyes I imagine, which will still look strange without eyebrows, both of which will require texturing, something I won't be doing until the end. Maybe I'll add censor bars XD. Sorry all! Taking a break to work on my website =~=
June 2: Finally a W.I.P. More tweaking but finally some f**king progress.
June 1: In between work and friends, the hair is almost done. Hope to seriously post a W.I.P tonight.
May 21: Swear I'm working on this model! Been super busy but progress is coming!
May 19: Cannot catch a break. Half a dozen calls @___@
May 17: Butchered scene a bit but hair is coming along! Hope to post W.I.P. tonight!
May 14: Combined what I could from the 2017 scene to the 2012 one.
May 13: Business picked up. Work work work @_@
May 9: Closed corners of mouth. Added eyes. Curls are gonna be tricky, but I like a challenge.
May 8: Hair coming out good. Lots of tweaking done and still needed but getting there.
May 5: More head. Started hair.
May 4: Head W.I.P. Finally found time to post.
May 1: Life got busy. Still can't downgrade current scene. Working on head in a separate one.
April 10: Substitute laptop cannot handle Maya 2015. Installed 2012 but now Lucid's model won't read. Always something! Working on it.
April 9: My laptop of 4 yr took a dump last night. Busy working on transferring content to another one. Project on hold yet again.
April 7: Found some time to work out some erroneous proportions. Flourish coming together but not satisfied yet.
April 4: F**king Windows anniversary update corrupted my Windows account. Need to recover EVERYTHING now and restart my account. Project will resume when I do this. F**K... Account fixed. Boatload of work came in. Project on-hold.
April 1: Flourish on dress is giving me trouble. Will post when can!
March 30: Finished leash. Touched up dress a bit. Working on little details before starting head. Arms too small, fixing.
March 29: Started leash. Screwed up breasts somehow, someway.... fixed.
March 28: Fixing upper body, mess of polygons. Starting neck and flourish on sleeves.
March 27: Started dress. Started buckle on armbands. Redoing upper body as the geometry looks like ass; looking better.
March 26: Realized corset is actually the bottom-half of a tuxedo and bust too large, corrected. Added rivets to armbands.
March 25: Bust was looking like crap, redid; decided to model corset away from breasts and not attached to. MUCH happier. Starting arms. Changed reference here to bring entire character into focus. Extruded tongue of boots up. Added lip to bottom of corset.
March 24: Started corset, dress and arms.
March 22: Started groin and ass. Just noticed torso is too tall. Corrected.
March 21: Client's computer was compromised. Project is taking a short break while I correct his situation.
March 18: Started boots and legs.
March 16: Preparing references.

Update: Found a back reference. May commence work tomorrow. Given the intricate details of this character, I expect the polycount to consist of between 20,000 and 25,000 quads (40,000-50,000 tris).
Update: Cannot find adequate references for what she looks like from the back. May be scraping this subject.

Thinking of modeling Lucid from MapleStory, the newest boss to the North American servers of the game. With health in the trillions and around 35,000 touch damage, she stands as the most difficult and deadly yet.
