Happy 4/13 everybody!
I’m supposed to be learning to model in C4D as part of my work training. Who says I can’t practice by modeling Homestuck stuff?

If I’ve seemed a little scarce lately, it’s because I got a job! Of sorts. I am incredibly fortunate to have a relative in the visual effects industry, who hooked me up with an unpaid internship at his workplace so I could learn some tips and tricks of the trade. I apparently did so well, however, that I’ve been hired as a freelancer for two of the jobs I’d previously worked on for free! If I get and do well on a third freelance job, that’s sort of the ‘litmus test’ for whether someone is worth hiring as a permanent employee. I’m hoping that eventually becomes the case, because this place and what I’ve been doing are seriously cool. I can’t get into specifics due to Reasons (an NDA), but I can say that the kind of work I’ve been doing is matte painting and compositing. The matte painting’s not a huge leap from what I’ve done in the past, but the compositing is a trip and a half! It’s live-action film sequences, which will eventually be in A Movie, and my name will go in the credits as a VFX artist.
So, yeah… Yay nepotism?
Here’s a very brief sample from ‘Polaroid Snapshots’, the upcoming ‘Neverwere’ Sequel. Rose’s POV.
I’m actually writing the sequel to Neverwere right now! :D It’s been a long time in the works, because I’ve been writing the parts out of chronological order and so I have to post it all at once. However, it’s finally nearing completion and should be posted sometime soon. The sequel fic will cover the same time period as Neverwere (plus a few scenes from several years down the road) from the points of view of Dave, Roxy and Rose, as well as Dirk. The fic is already around 60k words and will probably top out at about 70k when complete, to give you an idea of my progress. I see you’re following this blog, so I will be sure to post an announcement here when the fic is finished and posted. :)
I wanted to draw Dirk, but I also wanted to draw an undercut. So I was like, how can I easily translate Dirk’s canon hairstyle into an undercut? A: you can’t. So I just drew one anyway.
