Title: The Weapon of the Wood (Prologue)
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Mocker , Noctis , Artemesia
Rating: G- (L1 N0 S0 V0 D1)
Warnings: Foul language, dark deeds, and gin.
Notes: The Unspoken, who numbered several tens, at the start of the War of Dominion, which lasted close to seven hundred years, were nearly obliterated during the war. Five worth speaking of survived it, and one of them died a hundred years later. Two were divided over her death, and one of those two has just discovered another of their number, presumed dead for centuries, may yet live. This is not actually the commission! This is the prologue to the commission, which I had to write, in order to screw my head on to do the commission. Consider it an introduction to some of the background, if you haven’t read enough Magelight to know Mocker, his troubles, and his bizarre sense of humour.

Title: A Glass of Poison (Redux)
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Noctis
Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: None
Notes: So, I remembered staring at this image for days, at one point, and I couldn’t figure out why the glass wasn’t behaving like glass. Having since acquired a clue, I tried again, with much less shitty results.

Title: Not While I’m Working
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Nox
Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: None
Notes: If I shoot this for wall-hanging size, I think I’ll do it in 4×5 instead of square. The really ugly parts are toward the outer edges, in the back, but so’s some of the really nice stuff, so… I can rearrange things. This is an example of what you’re supposed to do with raytracing. Yes, that puff of smoke is actually reflected in three of the cans on the shelf. I’ve never gotten anything I didn’t mean to be a mirror to do that, before, and it’s awesome.

Title: Bathing Beauty
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Noctis
Rating: M (L0 N2 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Nox in the bath.
Notes: So, I find myself playing with water an awful lot, of late… Possibly because I’m finding a bunch of water-related crap I forgot I had. This was mostly so I could test out the wet skin shader and the spilling water props.

Title: Poison Cheesecake
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Noctis
Rating: M (L0 N3 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Nox, with less clothes. A lot less clothes.
Notes: I realised I had to actually give Nox some more thought, since he’s… not supposed to be quite the colours he keeps rendering in. I had to retint the skin and then fix the ambient from red to yellow. Blah blah nerdy shite, everyone’s favourite poisoner takes it off, below the cut.

Title: Ten Pieces of Gold Says You Can’t Make Me Feel It
Fandom: Magelight
Characters: Noctis, Kerrith
Rating: E (L0 N2 S4 V0 D0)
Warnings: I just keep thinking his teeth are way too pointy for that… I mean, um, more of Nox than has ever been on camera.
Notes: This? Would never happen. Totally the result of some off-screen ribbing between the players of Nox and Kerrith.

Title: Dancing (Part 1)
Fandom: Magelight, Dune
Characters: Alia, Noctis, Gwydion, Bitty
Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: None
Notes: So, in theory, I’m polishing up four images with a dance theme before Wednesday. More on why, later. These are the smaller versions, so the detail isn’t as clear as what will come out in print.

Title: Golden
Fandom: Magelight, Dune
Characters: Noctis, Alia
Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Excessive gold velvet. That’s a warning, right?
Notes: I dunno. I’m between commissions, and I needed to do something before I took another look at the test I’m working up for OfflineSpykeTyranno. That’s not going too badly, yet, and in another day or two, I might actually be ready to show some progress. In the mean time, here’s a pleasant afternoon. Clothing textures by the inimitable Chohole.
