#46 – “The Source of the Nila”


Hey, what do you know, on time again this time.

This paticular page is fairly definitive of character; since Te’len is intended to be atleast quasi-regular as things develop, I needed a good reason why she trusts and will accept travelling with a duo that’s kindof lacking in both reason and restraint. So she’s gotten to play the Damsel in Distress.

I had fun with the contrast between Damsel in Distress Te’len and Badass Action Girl Hani here – how Te’len views it all as a miraculous rescue by a knight…ess.. in shining.. well no.. slightly shiny boiled leather armour while Hani’s just having a day like any other day.

And no I haven’t forgotten Tiny. I have a character reason why she only speaks up in the end too. All according to Plan and all.

    Its soo cuuute ^^ her sitting there hideing her head in her hands, however that DOES explain were all the nightelfs hide when they do shadowmeld. Nobody ever suspected that in Azeroth the good old “If i can see you, you cant see me” works in pratisis!

    Still love it :) keep it up!

    That pic with rush to thank is kinda … well… pehaps should make only trace from bodies and hands… faces wouldn’t be as fast as body, you know, dynamic and inertion. Anyway it’s a nicely done page all the way. :)

    Good enough point – the motion blur is a secondary effect done after render, not during it. So it’s basically just taking Paint Shop Pro’s built-in Motion Blur and trying to whing something with it. Getting completely correct motion blur means setting up an entire animation somehow and doing motion blur via 3ds, so I haven’t really tried to figure that one out yet.

    Still, duly noted. I’ll try to keep that in mind and see if I can tweak my way of motion blurring just a tad for the future ;)
