So finally, after yelling at my computer for two whole days, there is a render worth printing. I’m calling it quits for now before tweaking it a little again. And yes, the color snuck back in. And no, I don’t remember how many renders. My crash log has been deleted numerous times to allow more disk space if that helps. Yes, just a wee bit grumpy right now.
Hopefully this piece will be at home with any other of it’s robotic counterparts.
