Give it up for Red Carney -- Chapter 10
Woo double digits! I remembered just in time today. I like today's part, hope you do too! Cheers!
About this creation
“I never liked sitting still for too long.” Harry confessed, his gaze turned pensively out the window. A few hours had passed in silence, the boat slowly floating back towards town. Red wasn’t able to sleep when someone nearby was awake, so he had been listening to his music instead.

“Then how did you end up here?” Red asked drearily, pulling out one earbud.

“Unfortunate turn of circumstances that started with me being born here.”

“That’ll do it.”

“How did you end up here? You never actually told me.”

Red thought about lying again, but Fish was too clever to bite at that hook. If you can’t beat them, join them. As the boat made its way to town, Red spun his yarn, starting from the day he’d left home and ending with the day he’d left the Swift. Harry didn’t react to most of the story, but Red could tell he was taking it all in.

“It’s like listening to a novel. Well, maybe a crappy fanfiction one.” he concluded, a few minutes after Red finished.

Red and Harry agreed that the lie about Jason the traveler was by far the more compelling story.

“So are we friends now?” Fish asked, breaking another long silence.

“I don’t have any friends. Too risky.”

“Well, that’s some way to live.”

“One of them, yes.”

Neither said anything until the boat finally came to a stop, the last one for the night. Red could see the warm glow of a gas-lit city through the thick, hand-poured glass panes that formed the boat’s windows.

Fish got up to leave, wordlessly heading for the door.

“Hey, Harry, wait a minute.” Red called, before he could make it through the door. He turned. “I told you my story. You owe me yours.”

Harry chuckled deeply.

“I guess I do. I live in the Lakeside apartment houses. Look me up sometime.”

Red stepped off the boat shortly after Fish, bracing himself against the stout river wind.

It was now two or three in the morning, and Red had just remembered that he didn’t have any money left. He’d need someplace to sleep and something to eat pretty soon, and he’d either have to work or con his way into it. He knew which he preferred.

The humidity that would later become the morning dew hung heavy on the largely empty city. Red walked alone through narrow streets of cobblestone, turning his collar to the cold and damp. He shook his head, trying to get the Simon and Garfunkel lyrics out of it. They seemed oddly fitting.

Eventually, he found a decently clean looking inn. He selected a persona from his mental file, and stepped inside.

Red stepped inside. The place was empty, but cozy. No one was around, but there was a bell on the counter. He rang it, with the distinct feeling that he was waking someone up. A few minutes later, a sleepy looking balding man stepped out from behind a door. He forced a smile, but clearly wasn’t happy to be up this late.

“You look like you’ve come a long way.” he observed, his voice betraying he wasn’t quite awake yet. That would make Red’s job easier.

“You could say that. My name’s Jason, and I’m -- “ Red froze. He looked into the inkeeper’s round face. The guy probably had a family. He never hurt anybody. He’d probably never been hurt by anybody. At least not by a big city conman.

In spite of himself, Red changed gears. He distinctly felt his transmission grind a little bit, but he eventually forced some words out.

“I need a place to stay, but I spent my money on the boat ride down here. Give me a job and I’ll pay you back for a room.” Red couldn’t believe it. Years of conning innocent people and he got hung up on a simple innkeeper. He fully intended to pay him back, too. Maybe he was just tired.

The innkeeper nodded, handing Red a key with a yawn.

“You’d be surprised how often it happens. Wash some dishes for me in the morning and we’ll call it even. Goodnight.”

Quoting Winslow "Whit" Wadsworth Whittier The Wise™ Another annoying question: Why is my build so big when I get it into render? How can I change that?
Make sure you're using the Mecabricks blender plugin. If you already are, scale the camera (not the model) with s. Best of luck!

Quoting The Mighty Catduck Haha, carppy fan fiction novel. Loved that joke, though it isn’t true about this story! You’re doing good!
:P Everyone has to break the fourth wall now and then. Thanks, I'm really glad you're enjoying!

Quoting Patrick Boyle This is very nicely rendered. The perspective of the figure against the background is just right.
Thank you! I was in a hurry so I was worried that the set wouldn't work with the background entirely. I'm glad you think it looks okay!

Quoting Winslow "Whit" Wadsworth Whittier The Wise™ I actually do have a question, with the likelyhood of more being very high. How do I get a file out of mecabricks into render from online? I can't find anything on it.:P
It's under the export menu. Export as collada I think. You have to have the plugin to import the file into blender properly.. I'd explain the process but it's hard to do in one sitting. I did post a tutorial on Brick Lab a few months ago, IDK if you saw that. Hopefully this helps :p

Quoting Winslow "Whit" Wadsworth Whittier The Wise™ Your renders continue to astound me, especially since I'm trying to do my own now... Great segment, I liked the bit about a fanfic. Keep it up!;)
Thanks so much! If you ever need help I'd be glad to offer help on some of the things that tripped me up for so long. Blender has an extremely steep learning curve. And yeah, I thought I'd throw a little forth wall nod in there to mix things up :P Thanks for reading!
