So I’ve been learning about 3d modeling and rendering, and here’s the result, which I plan on using for book three, Memorythief. I’ve had a lot of fun with the software (I’m using DAZ 3d, by the way), and I’m planning on going back and redoing the covers for books one and two in the near future. For now, though, I’m going to get back to actually writing, which I haven’t done in almost three weeks now between the dayjob being busy as hell and my obsessive focus on playing with the new toys. 

PS I’m also planning on doing some character portraits, if for nothing more than my own entertainment. Works well for a number of other authors I’ve read, why not try it for myself?
