Title: The Rumpled Wench Tavern
Characters: Lucius Malfoy, Rodolphus Lestrange, Severus Snape
Rating: G-
Warnings:Writer is not an artist
Notes: I’ve been working on this since 0400, yesterday. It’s nothing like done, but here’s a few progress shots.

First, I had to find the walls of the damn tavern, which were conveniently labelled !Tavern, for idiots like me — unfortunately, they did not end up in the same folder as the rest of the scene components, but rather in the props folder. Pain in my ass…

Then I added Lucky, who is only half-dressed and half-posed, here.

Sev came next. And it took me another … … fifteen hours? to figure out why the wooden stool was shining like metal. Lighting problem.

Finally got Roddy into the picture, and got sufficiently peeved at the idea of doing any more posing that I started working on lights. Almost a full day of abject fail ensued.

I am developing a sincere dislike for candles as sources of illumination — or more to the point, point lights. Theoretically, I will eventually figure the damn things out. In the mean time, there are spotlights, like the one currently hovering over the table.
