Fandom: Winter
Characters: Siobhan , Roisin , Conall , Finnegan
Rating: Rating: <span style=T" src="https://penbrydd.groundline.net/wp-content/luxintenebris/rating/PG13.jpg" width="32px" /> (L0 N1 S0 V2 D0)
Warnings: Knife fight, miniskirt, shirtless dudes
Notes: Last one! Now I just have to go back and sketch the grass into a few of these, clean up a few glaring glitches I missed the first time, and… BUILD THE COVER! Calendar should be out on the 15th, assuming nothing catches fire.

Title: October: You Know You Want To
Fandom: Winter
Characters: Siobhan , Conall
Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: None
Notes: I really got lucky with the faces, this time. I don’t even know, I was aiming for tempting and considering, and I think I got it in one. Still took three shots to straighten out the rest of it.

Title: December: Holidays With the Family
Fandom: Winter
Characters: Roisin , Brigid , Caolan
Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: None
Notes: This took way too long. Every time I tried to render it, the damn thing would spontaneously exit with no error. On the other hand, I did finally manage, after figuring out which props had to be turned off for which shots, and how to get the background in… *laughs* Yes, I shot December and January in the same corner of the same room. That was kind of intentional. Brings the year around.

Title: Always Fear the Cute Ones
Fandom: Winter
Characters: Finnegan , Roisin
Rating: Rating: <span style=T" src="https://penbrydd.groundline.net/wp-content/luxintenebris/rating/PG13.jpg" width="32px" /> (L0 N2 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Finnegan’s not wearing much.
Notes: No post, because I’m lazy and totally screwing around. I’m trying to work out what December should be, so I’m just sort of doodling. This is pretty much just Roz and Finney being adorable. Why is his hair ginger and hers strawberry, if they’re siblings? She dyes it. And where’s her hat? Well, she doesn’t need one. Look at the way she wears her hair. In a humid environment, do you have any idea how long that would stay wet? Also, bonus points for anyone who’s old and nerdy and gets the title reference.

Title: Siobhan & Roisin (Test)
Fandom: Winter
Characters: Siobhan , Roisin
Rating: G- (L0 N1 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Pointy teeth? A lot of leg?
Notes: So I keep spacing that Sullivan and Finnegan are two of five, not two of three. Yes, that does mean I’m still missing their other brother. But, here’s the sisters! Roisin’s really sweet and cute, or as sweet and cute as a girl can be who literally eats people for breakfast. Siobhan’s got politics and a fetish for explosives, and she’s been expressly forbidden from blowing anything up within two hundred miles of the house. Because no, that’s why, and never mind about your uncle Rodney. No post on these, because they’re just tests.

Title: July: Moonlight and Mushrooms
Fandom: Winter
Characters: Ceallach , Caolan
Rating: G (L0 N0 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Caolan’s vaguely in drag. It’s not real obvious.
Notes: THIS. FUCKING. PICTURE. *coughs* So, I spent 20 hours crashing it, before I realised the problem was the grass. Oops. Shot it in four parts, one of which had about half the total grass in the scene, and faked the hell out of it. If I did something utterly daft, here, you should probably tell me, as half of this was done after I didn’t sleep for three days. (Yes, I’ve slept since. Thanks.) I also have a terrible suspicion this got gamma shifted for some goddamn reason when I uploaded it, because it’s a completely different brightness here than it is in Photoshop, on the same display. So, no, it’s not actually washed out, it’s just something wrong with this version of the file.

Title: May: Raising the Maypole
Fandom: Winter
Characters: Clover , Cathan
Rating: G- (L0 N1 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Shirtless dude.
Notes: SIXTEEN HOURS it took me to render the background. Well, no, once it stopped crashing every three hours, it only took five, but start to finish, sixteen hours. When I say I’ve been working on this for three days, not even joking a little. Anyway, I wanted to do something with a maypole, and while this wasn’t at all what I thought I’d be doing, I kind of like it. I may go back and sneak in some more rope, so it looks a little less weird, since that will NOT TAKE SIXTEEN FUCKING HOURS. *grumbles*

Title: June: Another Round
Fandom: Winter
Characters: Finnegan , Rose , Cathan
Rating: G- (L0 N0 S0 V0 D1)
Warnings: A lot of drinking, in a bar.
Notes: So, there’s supposed to be a beer bottle in Cathan’s hand, but I suddenly can’t get it to render. Like, I waited four hours, and couldn’t get it to clear even a pixel of the glass. (And it’s the same damn shader as bottle that Rose is holding, too…) Seeing as it took me fourteen hours to render Rose and the rest of the glassware, I might just pick a different shader or reposition his hand without the bottle. So, yeah. This isn’t final, it’s missing one prop, which I can edit in, later. Still, I do like the look of it.

Title: February: Love Is…
Fandom: Winter
Characters: Sullivan , Murphy
Rating: T" style="vertical-align: middle; border: 0; padding-right: 1px;" width="32px" /> (L2 N0 S0 V2 D0)
Warnings: It’s Sullivan… Also, external organs. Not a typo.
Notes: I wanted something for February that captured that loving spirit of Valentine’s Day, but … less sappy. More grotesque. I will admit to having toned it down a bit, for print. But, seriously? Typical Sully.

Title: September: Keep Your Fingers Out of the Tarts (WIP)
Fandom: Winter
Characters: Brigid , Finnegan
Rating: G- (L0 N1 S0 V0 D0)
Warnings: Finney’s shirtless and Brigid’s gesturing threateningly with a spoon.
Notes: I can’t keep staring at this, today. I know I need to shoot Brigid’s face again because she’s not nearly unimpressed enough, get a less-shiny take of the spoon, and do something about the way Brigid’s bangs are pulled back from her forehead. Anyway, here’s a 3/4 finished version of September. This is pieced together from five renders, already.
