I know some artists here use SketchUp to help with their scenery and perspective; are there any web-based applications (or ) that y'all use? I need to make a room and be able to float a camera around in it so I can use the model for reference. I'm warily eyeing , but it looks awful complicated.

Just released a new short novel, called THE CAPRAMANCER NEXT DOOR. A down-to-earth mage and her magical goats must save their new neighbor from being mulched in this new upbeat fantasy adventure!
@GoatsLive (who helped me get my goat facts straight) called it "A great read!"

I skewed the girl's face digitally from the original sketch to dewonkify it.
I liked some versions where he looms over the scene, but it felt contrary to the story--she's the one on his mind.
MANY THANKS to @DirkGrundy for helping me with the trenchcoat!!!

Time to reveal the new covers for my midlength noir romance OUT WHERE THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES. I put off painting this 'cuz I wasn't sure if my portraiture skills were up to snuff for the pro market (and then I had to go and add a train!) but I'm really happy with how it came out. I used gamut masks for first time, but not to set up the color scheme--just to reinforce color decisions I already made!
