Not a whole lot to talk about on this page. Mostly it’s to show Deus and Vale missing Sydney by less than a block. Contrary to popular theories, Deus actually has no idea she’s there. So I spent most of the page throwing in some cameos and practicing backgrounds.

I know they don’t look like much, but dang, those buildings took so long to draw. A lot of that has to do with me still having relatively limited experience drawing architecture even after all this time. I don’t fervently collect pictures of cityscapes and bank lobby interiors and meeting rooms and open air markets quite as fervently as I do with pictures of faces and expressions and fitness ladies for my reference folders. I’m sure architectural rendering is super satisfying to people who like it doing it. I’d probably like it more if I knew how to do it faster, but all those little details and the molding on buildings get tedious really quickly.

It’s hard to imagine a station like the one Sydney’s on not having a ton of automation. Unless there’s some weird union deal with a race that’s big on manual labor, like Space Dwarves, Ugnaughts, Ood, or Oompa Loompas.

I’ve updated the vote incentive. This time to another attempt at painting a cover. This one is obviously from a yet to be published Tamer 7. I’m fairly pleased with it, my biggest gripe is Victor’s head, which I used a reference for, and it looks almost like I cut out a model’s head for it. Also his expression doesn’t match the fact there’s a 40 foot Purussaurus surfacing next to him.

Unfortunately I can’t link you to the Tamer series of novels, which I quite enjoy, because Amazon still had its head up its ass concerning Michael-Scott Earle’s books, but hopefully he’ll be back online soon.

Speaking of which, if you look close enough, you may be able to spot a M-SE related cameo on this page.
