Update and Issue One Production Post 6

Update: Found 'em! The two pages of renders for next issue were backed up, I just overlooked them until last night. Yay, less work than I thought, always a good thing.

In Production: Okay, finally finished that panel I was procrastinating on. I think it was the last one. Time will tell. More work done on the cover and it's shaping up well, still not sure if I want it to be the final cover or an alternate design. Once I have Daz back I'll render up some other ideas and see what comes of them.

Issue Two is getting closer....

Eh, We've Had a Problem

I promised in my last post a teaser peek into Issue Two. Well, that's been postponed due to the fact that the SSD hosting my Daz3D app died last week, taking the two pages of renders I did a few weeks back and the Daz runtime folders with it. It's not catastrophic (that would be losing all of Issue One, which is safely triple-backed up) but it does put a spanner in the works since I'll have to rebuild the runtime and, after getting a replacement SSD, get Daz up and running again. And even then I'm not sure how that will affect the scene files I have backed up (Will I have to reimport .obj files? Redo clothing? No Idea!) But maybe, if I look on the bright side, it could be a blessing in disguise and allow me to build better 2.0 versions of some of the models I will be reusing (Skeeto, for example). It should make for an interesting adventure.
