Star Wars_YODA_ala MPC
Scale? All over the damned place. This seated Yoda figure is from a circa 1982 kit "Encounter with Yoda on Dagobah" and is part of a larger diorama where the three figures are utterly out of proportion with one another. Anyway, this is the first one to be painted. I once owned and painted a version of this kit in the 80s, but lost track of it.

Basecoated with spray-can flat black, he was brought up through black-brown and into green-grays. Acrylic over enamel.
Famous Studios_Possum Pearl_Bike Hike
This unfinished deviation must be over three years old at least. Proportion problems sunk it from the start, but I wanted a combination of character and machine and maybe that's where the conflict was the worst. Possum Pearl races after, catches and lifts a State Police motorcycle at the end of her solo cartoon. Couldn't put the rider on it because the motorcycle was not laid out right size wise.
Passion of Spies_Commie Cabaret
Just in time for Mayday. I didn't know about "Passion of Spies" until randomly searching YT for Soviet animations. When you have THIS character in your thumbnail, I won't pass it up. "Passion of Spies" is a 1967 mini-classic which has achieved some cult status. Soyuzfilm was behind this offering and its surprisingly detailed in an age where animators in the West were hardly trying in their craft.

Directed by Yefim Gamburg who has a few other credits to his name, "Passion of Spies" has a convoluted plot of East vs West in a goofy plot to secure a miraculous dentist's chair invented by Soviet scientists. Halfway through the story, a nightclub scene takes place with this curvaceous Commie singing a rendition of Ochi Chernya. Her cleavage can hide any number of useful items...and her gyrations would make Elvis jealous.
Is it me? I don't think so.  My last two deviations can't upload to this site correctly. One is one its side and the other is inverted. They aren't on desktop or on the flashdrive and despite some double and triple checking beforehand, they continue to appear wrong upon submission and I have had to delete them quickly.

has anyone else out there run into this particular headache?

I'm a 20th century survivor with bibliomania--compulsive urge to amass books. But I'm dealing with it. The mania has become too expensive to continue for much longer.

I'm trying to get something published, but I'm working with outdated equipment and I really hate salesmen.

Do you take requests?

Productivity and Privacy--with a Pricetag.      I have discovered a way to get work done--but it involves finding a nowhere town with a comfortable, quiet motel at a decent price.  Harder to do than you might think.  I got a batch of scale models finished and worked on, but I forgot to bring along pencils on my latest getaway, otherwise, I would have drawn more.  A few hundred dollars later and I cleaned some lingering projects off my workbench.  So, it isn't cheap.  Libraries are NOT what they were when I was a kid when SILENCE was the cardinal rule.  I will never have the turnout I had when I still lived in my folks old house and enjoyed hours upon hours of uninterrupted time to doodle and experiment.  Nowadays, the work comes with a loss.

One problem after another from internet connection woes, a broken-down ride, no space to work, noisy neighbors and SUMMER! I have come to hate the month of June and submit almost no work out of protest. And I think we can agree, this has been a particularly rotten June out of many in recent history. I'm glad it's over, personally.

Announcement--I'm forced to move from my fairly luxurious residence into a much more modest arrangement where space is extremely limited and web connection may be dodgy.  I intend to keep drawing, but getting images posted will be tough and submissions may fall to once a month if that.
