Lately, I discovered The Webcomic List, which lists all of the webomics that are updated each day. So I’ve been going through and checking them all, to see if there are any that I’m interested in. I’m relatively picky about the drawing style, so I usually only manage to find one or two a day, even though I look at a ton of different sites.
Today I found MYth, (which read right to left). It’s a super cute style, and it’s about Greek mythology! There are three stories so far, and yeah the myths are kinda iffy, but it’s still really really cute. I loved it. The first story is Hades and Persephone, which isn’t quite the true myth … at all … buuuuuuuuuuut I’ll let it go. Read it cause it’s adorable, not cause its correct.
So then later I was on deviantart, and browsing for Hades, trying to see what other people thought he would look like (and ignoring the large number of Disney Hades fanarts) I was surprised to see so many ones that made him look like a demon! He’s a god! He should be pretty!! And by pretty I mean devilishly, devastatingly handsome and sexy. (Apollo, on the other hand, is pretty. Pretty-boy. Like Orlando Bloom as Paris in Troy) After all, Hades is still one of the Greek gods, his brothers are Zeus and Poseidon! And Zeus is a man-whore so he’s gotta at least be attractive. As a swan… um …
Hades should be attractive, not all demon-y looking.
On another note, I was having some troubles at work the other day. I made a scene of a Roman portico using 3DS Max, and then used Vue 8.0 to make trees. Well, Vue automatically decided to make it a sun, and made the sun GINORMOUS, so it looked like a giant blob. Then there was a light in the building that was shining so brightly that it went through the building and made stripes on the ground.
So I rendered it out and saved the image. (Yes, I know the building is awful, just ignore that, thanks)
We managed to fix the sun, and then when I opened the file today the racing stripes were miraculously gone, so I quickly finished it and rendered out a new image, sans-blob so that I could actually use it before the stripes came back. I’m still fairly certain that they will.
The computer has been going SO SLOWLY lately, and we don’t know what’s wrong with it, but whenever I tried to rush it, the whole computer would freeze and the screen would start flashing at me and try to give me a seizure. So I just let it do its thing and looked up webcomics.
I also got put into a new office yesterday, which was STIFLING. My fan broke today, but I think they managed to turn the temperature down, so it wasn’t so bad. In fact, I got kinda chilly, which was much more familiar, considering how cold the rest of the building is.
Anyway, I think that’s enough ramblings for tonight!! My roommates moving in tomorrow, so I should probably clean off her bed … it makes such a nice shelf, though.
