This is too cool not to share!

A while back, one of my readers  by the name of Roger Ellingham (known in the comment list here at Requiem as Count Thalim) got a hold of me privately about doing a satellite imagery style picture of the main continent (Ainm Baile) that much of Requiem takes place on.  Well today, he emailed me the final product.

What the good Count did was take the map that I had designed and layered satellite imagery from a whole ton of different NASA pictures to come up with the first satellite pictures of the world I've been writing about.  I’ve been staring at it off and on for hours now, and I have to tell you that it is incredible.

So without further ado, I present to you one of the coolest things that I have ever seen.  it is visible right HERE

Thank you good sir, you have made my holiday!!!

Comic pages done....
All commentary pages for the book are completed...
Cast pages for the book are completed...
Table of Contents page done...

4 more pages to go which will include a world map, (if I can afford to grab a copy of Campaign Cartographer 3, you will get a map of Erech as well), A credits page, and a commentary about the House's and the Great House War.

 Just a few doublechecks of text sizing and formatting here and there left to go....

It's coming ladies and gentleman....the book is almost done.

Judgement )

Yes, this is the second one of these that I have done today.  Depending on how things go, there may end up being a third before midnight.

16 remasters down....

A preview of the new Owl River Bridge will be going up Saturday.

Need food, need steak, need shrimp, need cheese fries....

All of of these things will soon be taken care of.

I'm still sketching out idea's for Tarot Cards, too.

Tonight it has been Splinter Lake and the digital mechanics of building the perfect beach. 

Seven hours straight on a computer working, a two hour break, and then another run at the finish line.  Tomorrows comic is done, the Renderosity strip is almost nailed, and I have learned things.

One thing I have learned was how to control my temper as I listened to a global warming denialist recite the republican doctrine according to that inbred, oxycontin snorting fucktard Limbaugh in my local hangout/drinking establishment. 

Three cheers for temper control, I guess.

Oh, and according to this dick, Nixon was a good president.



And a few other observations...

1. Has anybody out there but me noticed that singer Macy Gray sings like a female Fraggle with a really bad cold?
(oh, and in case you don't know what a Fraggle is... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraggle_Rock   http://www.fragglerocker.com/

2. It's all about connection, and the things money can't buy...([livejournal.com profile] meteru will know what I'm talking about)

3. I'm currently taking the new version of Fireworks for a test drive, and I have to say that it makes me a very, happy panda.  They actually improved it (which I didn't think was possible)

4. Obsidian canyons have recently been springing to mind lately as something I might visit in the digital art side of things.

5.  I am still working on the Requiem Tarot deck...I'm still hung up with The Hermit right now.  Yes, I am beating my head against the wall.  I know what I need to complete it, I just don't have it yet.

6.  With the recent work on Microholography and the development of 500GB's of storage on a DVD there may finally come a day when I can back up my Poser directory and comic art files on one disk.  Of course, this also means that a couple people I know will soon be making the ultimate mix DVD's ;)

7.  I have had Tracy Chapmans "Baby, Can I Hold You Tonight?" as my mental soundtrack for the last month or so.  Great song, and the memories from it are enough to almost kill me at times.

I know a few people have been wondering about this...

This is what the card back will look like.

I just realised that the 1000th comic, and the three year anniversary of Requiem take place on the same day.

I should do something special for this.

The Wayfarer )

A test of an upcoming comic panel...cut 'cause this is a little big...

I may end up doing a version of this as a print at some future date.

Overall, getting back to work has been pretty righteous...

Now if only I knew why the ball of each foot feels like someone is taking a makita cordless drill on a one way trip through them, I would be in business. I think what I am feeling right now is indirectly caused by the aproximately seven years I spent hoping on and off fork lifts.  Only six more weeks or so and I am in my normal assignment...sometimes training sucks.

At any rate, I've been dealing with industrial lasers for the last couple of weeks or so, I am definitely looking forward to getting into the programming side of things on them.  I got a chance last week to observe some programming tests on a Tanaka 3 axis industrial laser that was bigger than some houses I have lived in over the years.

Still here, any how...filling in the gaps, and putting things together.  Dealing with the enemies this time around in the comic...and filling in the pieces on a number of things that I know that people who have gamed in this world have always been wondering about..or came up with the wrong explanations for.  Comic is uploaded for tomorrow by the way...at least I am on a section that is relatively easy to pull off for once.  The recent underground railroad staion I had to put together was a nightmare.  I worked okay comic-wise...but it still isn't quite what I wanted in the end.

Oh [livejournal.com profile] meteru ?  You really need to head over to Vanishing Point and check out their marketplace for Poser models and stuff.  There are a number of things over there that I havent seen anywhere else.  One thing of interest is a whole series of trains (engines, boxcars, tankers and the like)  From what I can see they look absolutely awesome.

Need all kinds of things right now...soda, cigarette and sleep in that exact order.  It's too much to ask for a total lack of pain in my feet as well.

Due to some unpleasant personal circumstances, Requiem is taking today (the 11th of January) off. While the comic is graphically done, I haven't been able to add dialogue to it yet.

Things haven't been too good over here...it looks like tomorrow morning we are going to have to put our 9 year old dog "Pepper" aka "The Big Bear Dog" to sleep in the morning. I had everything in my head ready to be transcribed...and circumstances blew things out of the water.

We'll be back up and running as soon as our brains are able to focus on things again.

Why do I always end up taking so damn long to get around to site maintenance?

Anywho....the links page is finally updated.

As for what else is going on?  The worst thing in the world...absolutely nothing.
maximkovalenko: (Default)
The synopsis for Requiem has begun...
The newsticker is now up and running...
I still need to get off my ass and put together new navigation buttons...but I'm still not sure what I want to do in that area.

A new comic will be up in the morning, and the new Tunnelrunners is up as well.  In addition the cast page and the Tunnelrunners archive has been updated. 

I think the site redesign has been completed successfully (and it even works in fucking Internet Explorer, too.).  Hopefully, everybody enjoys it :)

Bedtime for me....night all.
