First of all, I'd like to say something about what happened in Nice three days ago.
I literally have no words to express my pain, anger and sadness for such a tragedy. Another one. I've been in Nice a few times in the past, even walked along that Promenade with my grandparents and thus those images truly shocked me. Just thinking about the innocent souls we lost, I want to scream and cry and only ask WHY knowing that I will never get an answer. If anyone of you lives in France please stay strong. I know it's easier said than done, but you're not alone in this. I promise.
Now, I decided to create a sort of new list to let you guys know what I intend to do during summer. I've got a few projects and ideas and I truly hope to finish everything without getting lazy and mentally busy again.
Apart from a few more renders including animations (to practice with After Effects) and MMD models, I intend to work on some meshmods and personal characters, which I'd love to show you at some point to receive your precious feedback. I'm about to sculpt a few faces too, starting from existing bases and using real actors as reference. I also want to make more stuff with Marvelous Designer now that I am understanding how certain things and patterns work. The only issue right now is the texturing part, but little by little I'll be able to figure that out as well.
Regarding downloadable models, I will probably make a new WIP image soon, but I plan to work on the other three Arno models I got from AC Unity and eventually rig some minor character I put in my folders ages ago. I also intend to finally work on that winter Ellie model from The Last Of Us since nobody released her so far, port Celeste from Mirror's Edge, rig the MG4 Raiden model (the epilogue shirtless one), finally finish Mundus and Lilith from DmC, convert more Bless Online characters (now that we got more cool stuff) and work on more Dragon Age: Inquisition models.
I'd also love to work on Mirror's Edge: Catalyst since I love the game, but at the moment we can't really rip the characters so we'll see.
I will start working on AC Syndicate models as soon as I get the rigged ones, but I have to finish Arno first.
Another thing I was considering is a possible rig and port for this
character, but I have to warn you guys that if I'll do you will never see him available for download. He is based on a real person and thus I do not want to be responsible for any weird image created with him.
I also want to practice more with digital painting. I concentrated more over 3D and such and I now want to try something different for once. The more you add to your repertoire, the better.
Remember that I am still open for 3D commissions involving DAZ Studio characters, which I can morph and sculpt over your original character or an existing one.
I also have a Patreon page where I post new stuff from time to time (also including general graphics and photomanipulations), wips and exclusive content.
Another thing I started a few months ago is a personal blog/website about PC gaming. If you're interested you can take a look and see if there's anything useful.
Please take care everyone and see you soon.
