It’s not an easy job, being a space trucker. But Flux is good at it, and has all sorts of cunning resources if she ever were to crash on a weird planet because of a mad evil scientist doing evil space science and occasionally murdering the goat plant people.

Hypothetically, I mean.

Flux is from the Crashlands video game. The entry also has a surprising amount of DC Heroes footwork around her teleportation equipment.

First version of a review of the tools we’ve used to create character portraits on writeups.org (for original characters, or those without usable visuals). Mostly it’s stuff from video games, though most of it is free or real cheap.

Since creating portraits or full-body models of original characters isn’t a rare need among various sorts of role-players.

Update – added a few games during the 29th and 30th of November 2017, see the table of content within.
