Full sequence is here.

[room 129]

Dory: At least they got the bed size right...

Dory: [listens] There IS something under there...

Zeek: No-no-no. Please no. Shhhh!

Dory: A dragon...

Zeek: Shhhh! Oh please sir, please don't turn me in, I don't want to be a beverage. Please!

Dory: Ah, the distillery. I see what you mean.

Zeek: Oh, thank you, sir! Thank you!

Dory: You can come out, the door's locked.

Zeek: Oh, thank you, sir. Those dust bunnies and my allergies...

Dory: It's Dory.

[...]

Zeek: And that's the whole story.

Dory: So you renoed this whole wing yourself, "just to keep busy".

Zeek: Just the rooms. When there was nobody around, of course.

Dory: Uh... where did you get the paint?

Zeek: That's the other family secret.

Dory: ...

Zeek: It's true I can't breath fire, I...

Dory: You're saying you - breath paint?

Zeek: Latex. Don't worry, it washes up with water and it only happens when I'm REALLY mad!

Dory: [eyes wall] This is dragon spit?

Zeek: No, it's -

Dory: Boogers? This place is boogered?!

Zeek: No! It's - fire! Think fire! It's a dragon thing!

Dory: No, it's a stomach thing...

Okay, that's an adequate reveiw of the hobby version. The Nexus Inn is based on an old RPG scenario "Ye Olde Come Back Inn" (you can enter the inn but can't leave - kinda Hotel California, now that I think of it...), except this one has 'extradimensional' doorways to everywhere. Er, call it stale, hackneyed, derivative, cliche, etc. and I'll agree, hehe. Gotta start somewhere. Smile

Moving on, here's the more recent/focused effort (moved here from WIP/Patel Grand), a first side adventure from the Nexus Inn:




111111 - Forgot to note this one (above) is an 'overpaint' (vectors over GS).

Back to the collaboration idea, here's the basic layout of the inn (common area, minus chairs, tables, etc.). With a renovation underway (see above), the layout could change a lot (for the better, hehe). The farther from the common area, the wilder/derelict it becomes (ie. could support various scenarios in itself).



Okay, time for a beer... Smile

Oops, forgot one - need some rats to contribute to, um, atmosphere, yeah. Smile

Yep, this is one of those moments when nothing's coming out right. This post will be back when my brain's back online (when/if I've got the text sorted)... Wink

The practical effect is, this thread is a "sandbox". Smile

Another island chain (done in a fraction of the time...). New processor's still not powerful enough to handle another level of detail - oh well. Onward. Smile

Realizing I tend to 'image bank' so I don't have to draw something new each time (read *lazy*), which doesn't help with learning... Someone mentioned gesture (next concern for me):

Would be more effective with more shadow-casting objects in the foreground, I think...

Blocking's done (good enough)...
(if the shadows invert, glance at the darkest spot, middle right, to fix)

Next up: detail the action spots...

In Inkscape vectors can be blurred (see cloud), if that's useful to anyone (surprised me; beziers are unaffected, whether the object's blurred or not). Otherwise, been converting old stuff from Word format (2000 px max export res) to Inkscape (unlimited export res and generates pngs too)...

Not much progress but still moving Smile -
wondered if drawing clouds front to back
(rather than silhouette first) would be easier;
seems to be; but having a clear idea of
the volume/shape is still most important
(lost track in this one)...

...low as I could go (polys)... incidental: export image (sketchup) hung my machine, until I thought to "run as administrator" (who knew?): much smoother image...

the lesson (at least for me) in planning sweeping landscapes: choose your battles (local detail only)...

again (still), avoiding loading the page (until dialup is extinct, yep; ie. one image per post; apologies to anyone who's watching this thread and getting email notices)...

figured out Blender (the basics), not as hard as I thought but still not accessible to the average Joe (that's me too, unh-hunh) - back to sketchup (max potential for group effort, including those who are 'mathematically minded', ie. those who might not 'get' fluidity but still want to be involved - yeah, I'm not sure how useful saying this is but I'm sure nobody else is, so there Very Happy )...
