Hopepunk City Pictures Gallery
The 2021 Picture of the Week gallery was getting too big, (same thing happened in 2020) so I’m splitting it in two. This one consists of 2021 Pictures of the Week that came from the development of
. Hopepunk City
This week’s pic of the week is one I made for a scene in the next game “Hopepunk City”. Ariane is talking to an old friend at a public pool. Some of you might recognize the friend (hint, she changed appearances throughout the years). I wrote and illustrated a whole scene (about 8 pics total), and thought this would be the best to share.
I felt the need to do some pictures with the characters happy and having fun. This one may or may not make it in the game, but I had fun doing it, and it looks like the girls are having fun too.
Feeling down, I decided to make some random pictures of my characters having fun. This is my favorite. I added some depth blur on this one with focus on Mia in the middle making Rachel and Ariane slightly blurry, but not as blurry as the background. Love the dog looking in.
I made a series of “happy” character pics. This is the last. A hot tub party! There is a little depth of field happening here so Mia and Rachel look slightly out of focus, but not enough to blur them, just soften their looks.
These pictures will show up in Hopepunk City as transitional scenes. The ones with nudity like this one will be in the later part of the game. This gallery are Hopepunk City pictures made before I upgraded my computer and Poser to Poser 12
You might have seen my teaser trailer for Hopepunk City I posted a month ago. Up to that point I was doing the game in Poser 11 firefly graphics, because I spent over a year making it that way and it felt like too much work to upgrade it all to Poser 12 Superfly. Well I did it anyways.
This is a picture of a character from Ariane in Paradise, who also appears in Hopepunk City. If you don’t recognize her it is understandable, but it is the female avatar player character. Between the posed hair, the big eyelashes, and the Poser 12 Superfly render, it is easy not to recognize her.
Over a year ago I posted this picture which was based on this series of pictures online. My original intent was to use it as a starting point for a scene in Hopepunk City, my upcoming game. Finally got around to creating the scene, and with a little help from a Poser 12 upgrade, I created a much more interesting picture.
My pictures of the week on arianeb.com lag a month behind Patreon, so this weeks picture is from Strip Crazy Eights, which came out a month ago. This is a rare image that pops up on the game if you have the PC or Mac version, and if you set the background to building lobby, and if you play as a female, and if you turn on where everybody loses clothes if there are 4 draws in a row. Buy the game today!
I’ve been busy working on finishing up Hopepunk City, which I hope to release this fall. I only have about a dozen scenes left. The good news is that I did over 200 new renders for those scenes. The bad news is none are good “Pic of the Week” pics, because they are either boring, or too spoilery to be released. Luckily I also did this one.
Set in a liberal leaning future, I am setting the portrayal of gender equality as a goal. One of the things that comes up in gender equality discussions is things like, “What are we going to do have unisex bathrooms, showers and changing rooms?”, and my answer is “Sure why not?” This gallery features Hopepunk City images after I upgraded my computer and software. There are a few repeats from the old gallery for comparison.
One of the last scenes done in Hopepunk City was Rachel living in your room. Final batch of images made when I was finishing up the game for release.
