Goddess Dance

Fun with negative spaces in Moho.

On the subject of “the Goddess”: some people seem to think I’m asserting a “single female creator goddess.” I’m not. I am an atheist. “The Goddess” refers not to any personal religious belief, but rather the fact that all early peoples conceived the divine as female. It doesn’t matter what region, what number of names, what language – the earliest religions were goddess-based. “The Goddess” doesn’t refer to any particular religion, but a principle of all of them.

I spent all day grappling with a bug in Moho. It was distorting shapes on duplicate layers, making it impossible for me to do my work. Hours and hours spent banging my head into a wall. I submitted a bug report and the corrupted files and…the techs could’t see the distortions. And in fact, when I re-opened my files, the distortions were gone, even though they were absolutely there before. I made new files and the same distortions occurred. But when I quit Moho and reopened the very same files – that were absolutely distorted and not just in the work area, but on renders too – the distortions were gone. So I finally have my workaround, and it only took a day of agony and despair.

Now I can duplicate layers again, so here are some horse gifs.

Moho Pro drives me crazy sometimes, but things like the above are easy as pie. Easier than pie, even.

Floaty Dreamy Prehistoric Horse

More Moho, which I like a lot more since abandoning “target bones”. I realize floaty dreamy movement is usually a rookie mistake, but in this case I’m trying to make the animals look floaty and dreamy. I actually need to make the deer and rhino more floaty and dreamy. The bear I have to make over from scratch.

What I’m learning in Moho Pro: Target Bones are more trouble than they’re worth. No target bones on this deer, less automation and more control.
