    I'll get back to 3D art soon again. Since my Dad passed earlier this year (March), it started to set on me, that because I've never had interest in financial numbers, even of my insurance, and investments - I let Dad take care of that, and I ignored it. Well, I decided I needed to learn, so have spent the last 3 months doing a deep, deep dive to understanding (not ever nuance, but the fundamentals at least) of US Tax code, how the Federal Banks work, how the Federal Reserve works, learning how insurance, IRAs, stocks, bonds, funds, precious metals, treasury bills, real estate and fiat currency really work - how do we make money, and how do they make money. What is QE and what did that really do. While I'm now no expert, nor a financier, for the first time I have a really good idea of how the economy functions, or rather dysfunctions. Knowing that the Fed is going to raise interest rates next month. I've decided I need to move some money around, make the family estate safer. Once I got it someplace safer, I'll start creating art once again. I'm just explaining my absence.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Getting back to work on the adventure module I'd been thinking about during the summer. I'm writing a 7th level horror adventure module for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game loosely based on the Circe story from Homer's The Odyssey. Instead of an island, a Rogue Moon is the location (and the name of the module), also called Aeaea, is home to Circe a Lich (undead necromancer). The moon is guarded by Scylla, a mechanoid construct in the shape of a huge octopus. Anyway, a rogue moon enters a developed star system and a science team is sent to explore and study it, also insure it doesn't collide with any bodies in their system. However the ship crash lands and a search and rescue team is being sent to recover the survivors - these are the player characters. Below is an illustration of the adventurers arriving at the crash site, as part of the introduction page to the module...

    Yes, I particularly like the different highlights on the mountains.
