Just a wonderful weekend:

     Quite funny, on t'DoL's birthday, just how often I forgot it was a Saturday, because it so felt like a holiday to me, outside the normal week. Delightful.

     Lots of good progress on the art front, even if I didn't get this new Defender flying avatar completely made on his birthday. The bigger project I've been working on over the last week is coming along nicely too--and it finally quit fighting me today (I hope).

     Great progress with book 5 as well. I wasn't going to let myself write until my list of revisions/small expansions had been attended to, and I got all of them done on t'DoL's birthday and Sunday morning, as well as rereading the entire book-so-far over the past week.

     And Sunday evening I got back into book 5 writing, hurrah! It is just GREAT that I have free worknights this week, AND Thanksgiving coming, AND a three day weekend beyond that. Here's hoping I can make the most of it!

The flying avatar is really neat. Just wondering why t'Dotel wings
look so dark?

Happy to hear about book 5 progress.

You're up early! =)

Get ready for a long answer! Part of that is the 'interference' of having two animations on top of each other, but most of it is Poser. I can't do this sort of animation in Vue until I get a new pc, but Poser is much worse for realistic outdoor lighting, and I haven't figured out how to get the iridescence to show up right because I don't usually work with t'DoL in Poser (it took hours of struggle in Vue to learn what to do, and still not perfect). And on top of that, the undersides of the wings are in shadow and will look dark anyway...
