The Girls are taking a short hiatus while things hopefully start settling down here. G4, Ar, and Kinnie have joined Ella at her home in upstate New York. Her father left it to Ella when he passed away a few years ago. Ella has completely restored her dad's old '54 Chevy Bel-Aire, and the Girls are going on a little tour of rural New York. They will be back soon. There are plenty of adventures to come.
Well, as if there haven't been enough things to deal with the last few months, now my primary Photoshop machine has started having some major issues. Lately, it's been giving me the occasional BSOD on startup. Yesterday, it took 5 or 6 attempts at starting it up to get it to finally settle down. It asked me to run Windows startup repair, which I did - and unsurprisingly after 30 minutes Windows informed me it was "unable to repair" the problem. Typical Widows "Troubleshooter" results...
Anyway, after an hour or so of messing with it, the machine finally settled down, and seems to be working normally now. It's a 6 year old machine running Windows 7, but it's a dual-processor unit with 64G of RAM, and I think it has plenty of life left in it. This is likely more of a software corruption issue than any kind of hardware problem. The company I bought it from - Velocity Micro - offers an "upgrade program" for existing customers, where you can ship the computer back to them, and they'll upgrade it. I may check into this - depending on cost, it might be worth it to upgrade to Win 10 and probably a better GPU. Or I might just do a format-reload on it. We'll see.
Jo is feeling a lot better - thank you all for all the well-wishes and prayers! You rock, my friends!
And a great big CONGRATULATIONS to Barb (Bakapo) for being voted Artist of the Month! Well deserved! 👍
Hope to be back in action soon with the last few pages of Chapter 6 and the beginning of Chapter 7! Thanks for stopping by, and for all your wonderful comments and support!

Re what you wrote about your Photoshop computer (above): I've seen all your uploads so have read the R.I.P.: So I know the outcome. (I gave you a link at the bottom: Trust me, it'll make sense to you.) I guess you have one benefit: You have other machines, and you can repair them yourself a lot of the time. I hope you get the replacement/repairs soon. And---I really don't know how this works: I hope that that machine doesn't bring everything else to a grinding halt: I don't know all the connections, but I hope you can get a workaround until the passed-on machine has been properly buried, mourned and memorialized...(Dies irae...days of wrath...o woe, the machine, it hath passed on...)
A very relaxed image, and the women look great as always. Great jobs with the outfits too (when is it otherwise in your art?), love their poses, their great outfits, love how you place the women across the car, love your mix of side light and shadow from I presume late day/early morning light. And the simple background is perfect to set them off. (Where did you ever learn to choose such fine clothing on women, and clothe them so well? I know something about men's clothing, but if I had to clothe a woman...omg. I'd be banned from planet earth...) Another fine 3D-model-in-a-photo image from you.
Here's a link to John Cleese in Fawlty Towers: He's got a dying car, but you'll relate to this regardless. It's a classic scene. Start at 2:15 and you can end after the car scene (unless you want to see the rest)---but the car scene says it all. (Don't tell me you didn't want to do the same thing to your computer...)
