When making a render for FreeSO (of the 3 times I've done it so far) I have made a rough sketch of what I want the end result to look like. And me being me, I like to doodle on sticky notes, so here's the original sketch for the summer render! Which is pretty different from how the final render turned out. I mean just look at them. But why? You may or may not be asking yourself. I don't know, I'm not a mind reader (I hope). Well when I started placing the set pieces of the render in a 3D scene, it just wasn't vibing with me. And this is about as far as this version got before I decided to start over. With this marginally less primitive incarnation! But even still this wasn't quite vibing with me. So I decided to start over (again)! And I finally had something I was vibing with! This version slowly but surely evolved into the final version seen on Twitter and in #freeso-news on the Discord! Until I realized there needed to be a beach ball because that was also kind of an important part of the update. And with the addition of the beach ball lazily tossed in (and some improvements to the shadows) the render was completed! Also enjoy this close up of two ice cream lesbians.
