#262 – “Collecting Monetaries”

One of the great things about being able to put the entire current scene into the renderer is that suddenly there’s this potential for having all kinds of things happening in the background in the situation that someone might notice it. One of the less great things about being able to put the entire scene into the renderer is that often I’ll spend time adding something in the background only to later realize that it was never once visible because it either never entered the frame or was otherwise always obscured.

Of course, you can’t fit in everything – there are many times when I’d love to show off all kinds of little details in places, but at some point you have to put the foot down and ask yourself things like “Do I really need this shot of a dwarf eating a ham to tell this story?”, and often the answer will be no. So there’s often a fair bit of cut things.

This time around, I really liked the scene in the back table though, and for my trying, I never quite managed to get a good shot of it since there always seemed to be more important things to show. So, I figured I’d toss up two renders and link them directly in case you’re curious what’s going on in the far background table, enjoy: 01, 02.

    Well, this is the 262-nd issue and I’m proud to tell you that I’ve been with you for TWO HUNDRED straight pages! I started reading the comic when you uploaded the 62-nd issue. :) Keep up the amazing work and thank you! :)

    The renders of the Dwarven party in the background are interesting, but I would love to see some detailed shots of the group with the firebreather.

    I see what you did there, Trrrr.

    TO THE PARK! Wait, do you even have background pics for the SW park on file, Nhani? Cause that might be problematic…
    At least Dwarven District is still THERE.

    “Since when do..” Rei, where have you been for the past 260 pages?! Nani does two things: fight, and decide. And she’s all out of fighting.

      If not, it’s a good thing the mage district resembles the park, minus the moonwell of course. I guess that could make a decent substitute.
