So in an unrelated thread about the soon-to-be-new Dark Skirt by SickleYield
I noted that I'd done a few images with her old Plain Skirt Genesis, but for some reason, only this image
had the Plain Skirt in it (Cassie's bright yellow skirt). On the upside, it turned out that I'd overlooked this one
. But still. I absolutely knew that I had more than two images with that skirt. So I plowed through my files on disk, and found some of the other images that I'd used the skirt in.
Turns out they hadn't migrated here because they're sort of ... bad. Ish. Not actually bad bad, but there's stuff in them that I didn't notice at the time, and I don't know why I didn't notice. Things like the skirt sinking into the floor, or into the furniture in back, or characters that are set a touch too far down so that their feet are clearly IN the floor and not ON the floor, things like that. But at the same time ... there's something about all the images that kind of ... works. So I thought, "Hey, maybe the original file is still around! I could fix the stuff that's wrong and re-render!"
And ... no. No. The source files are all still around; it's just that they're all .DAZ files, and I can't open any of them. Not one. (I wish they'd fix that bug. Like, NOW, already.)
And then, for reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I said to myself, "Self ... why not just redo those images the way you'd do them now?" So I did.
They're kind of a weird study in how my skills at image and scene composition, rendering and postwork have progressed. (In 2-3 years, I should hope they would have!)
A couple are images that I simply didn't upload here because I wasn't yet a paid member, so I was trying to avoid bumping the limits of what I could put up here. They're actually perfectly good images; I just didn't do anything with them. So those don't get updated.
One of the more recent versions will appear in two different images, for reasons that will be obvious when they go up.
Oh, and approximately 90% of them will involve Lynn Tawhiri, because I had so much fun working with him when I first got Sicklefuse Variety Genesis and SAV Lynn.
I'm also debating the virtues of going back and redoing the descriptions on the first four Pour Homme images I did. Since I wasn't thinking in terms of a sort of coordinated set of images, Professor I. Noah. Lott and his interviews and narrations hadn't yet made an appearance. It would be interesting to pull them all together and make them more of a piece, so to speak. Hmm....
