Digging this look a lot more than the v.4 redesign. The bladed “fins” get across the aquatic theme as well as signaling that Marrina’s time as everybody’s victim is in the past, thanks, plus the grown-out hair makes her look more adult. Despite the writers’ intent, I felt what we got in the last series, in looks and attitude, was more along the lines of “I want to be an internet meme!” than “look how badass I am”.
Hexeosiversary 8 - SeaPunk Version

Boy oh boy do I love post-processing! I recently changed my workflow so that Blender now outputs its renders with each render pass saved into its own channel in an OpenEXR Multi-Layer file.
Pro: Now I have like 36 new channels to play with for each rendered frame, and a zillion more options in the post processing step of my creation process.
Con: Nothing but Blender’s compositing system reads these files with the Multi-Layer information, Including the Blender Animation Preview window. Wtf. So I need to build a whole post-processing scene just to get an animated preview of something that may have just taken hours to render already.
To me, It’s an inconvenience that’s well worth the effort trade off. No idea what I’m talking about? Prepare your brain splatter guard, and watch this EXCELLENT VIDEO TUTORIAL about how to use each of the render passes that Blender’s Cycles render engine can output.
What do render passes have to do with the SeaPunk variation of this design? Well, I had already completed the render for the previous GIFs and had these Multi-Layer EXRs laying around. I wondered what playing with some of those new passes would yield, and by just throwing the Mist pass, the Emit pass, the Ambient Occlusion pass, and one cup of Butter together in a pot, I produced most of what you’re seeing here in about two minutes.
What is SeaPunk? You’ve probably never even heard of it. I don’t understand it. I guess it’s like Punk + Emo + Hipster, so it would sound like “Soft, Obscure, Misunderstood, Rage”? I don’t even. Google’s Image Search seems to think it has colors similar to this image.
Neville as eventual headmaster is very important to me though.
Neville, who thanks to his enduring friendship with Luna sees the vital importance of fostering interhouse relationships, downplays the rivalries between the houses without lessening the importance of …

In Arrow, Grant will be a former boxer who now owns a gym for underprivileged youth. A man with a mysterious past, he will play a pivotal role in Laurel Lance’s arc this season.
I still remember seeing “The Trigan Empire” book for the first time (and in the pages of “Look and Learn” and just falling in love with the art on the spot, possibly the first time I had ever been so drawn into an artist’s style so instantly. It was just so rich, and sumptuous and ALIVE!
So the Joker and General Gumm have kidnapped Robin and Kato and, whilst their senior partners search for them, have decided it would be fun to lock the Boy Wonder and… whatever Kato’s nickname was, in a cage and have them fight each other with one simple rule - Whoever lives gets to go free (The alternative was that they BOTH get feb to a shark).
If I were a villain in Gotham, I’d have sold tickets for this one, but hey, them’s the breaks
