As anyone who regularly visits my profile would have noticed, over the past week I decided to re-render all of the pictures from my novel "The Courier" www.asstr.org/~caligula97030/c… that I have been able to locate in my archives. The novel and most of the original accompanying images were created in 2007 and posted to my .com website. Many of those 2007 images were never posted to DA, partly because I did not consider them among my best work. I re-rendered a few of the novel's pictures over the past year, but now I'm trying to get to the ones that are left over, converting them into what I hope are much better images.
In terms of editing, revising, and pictures, "The Courier" did not receive the same attention from me that more recent novels have received. The main reason for that is because immediately after finishing the project I started on "The Outsider". I am trying to fix the oversight, starting out with revising the pictures I did render for the story and maybe adding a few more. I had hoped to revise the novel itself, but have not yet gotten around to doing that.
Another topic - I am not pleased that DA is now directing users to "what's hot". By focusing viewers' attention on "what's hot", the DA administrators are showing favoritism that is not appropriate for a forum such as this one. To me that is too much like the play-list of a top-10 radio station and is a form of censorship.
Another topic - raining like hell - summer in the Pacific Northwest is definitely over. Wish we could send some of this rain to California.
