Umoja: Kickin’ Back on the Couch

Here’s a bit of a throwback. Umoja’s Kickin’ Back on the Couch.

I made this back in July but never posted it because it’s really just a sketch. I’ve been learning to rig and pose 3D figures in Blender so I can later render them out as coloring book images. Once a figure is rigged, you have to test it out to be sure the body moves as expected. Umoja looks relaxed and so am I because she’s bending and posing as expected. I’ll go into more detail about rigging and my art process in a later post.

This next set of renders are pretty much straight out the box with minimal post work. Just slapped a couple of filters on em. Just having fun here with these renders that I tend to crank out as I work my way through the process.

    1. Thanks much. I’ll continue on but should point out that I’m in the process of transitioning the Children to their own website at Peace.

  1. I’m soooo excited. I started a non-profit and I want to get the 12 adults who participated in this year’s Kwanzaa Celebration a gift to commemerate our first ever and first Zoom celebration. I would love to get them something from your KinarasChildren collection that they can use to share with grandchildren, etc. (I also need a certificate of participation – got anything?) Should I wait a while until you develop more or what would you recommend? P.S. Umoja kickin’ back on the couch is my favorite!!!
