And in other news this week, I've been giving Maya, my faithful PC, some much-needed upgrades for more graphics work and other things... (*cough*Overwatch*cough*) One of said upgrades was a new graphics card, which turned out to be incompatible with my current monitor. As chance would have it, the next day I went to a neighborhood estate sale, and...
This monster, which I have christened ZA BEASTO as a particularly shameless and nerdy reference to Evangelion, is a 42'' LED Vizio flatscreen HDTV, with a maximum resolution roughly quadruple what I had before. Even better, I got it for a steal, at something like a quarter of what it would cost new. Yeah, it took my entire wages from dogsitting this week, but so worth it. I can't wait to put it and my hardware upgrades through their paces with Photoshop and other things (*cough*Overwatch*cough*), and from now on movie nights are going to be a hell of a lot more interesting.
Speaking of Photoshop... while I did plan to have a Zoids picture up this week, technical difficulties have prevented it once again. Thankfully, this should (fingers crossed) be the last time. I've had my share of them for the year, I think.
Anyway, see you next week, and happy shopping!
BHS Blogress Report: June 2021
June 2021 - Recharge As of a few days from now, I'll have posted a new Koikatsu model every week for the past seven weeks in a row. It's been paying enormous dividends; I'm getting more exposure, my Patreon has never been more successful, and I'm having a ton of fun despite how much work it is to get each model out there... and it does take a lot of work. This past week alone has seen me do about four separate Koikatsu projects in addition to the regular model releases. Now, as I said, doing this is a lot of fun... but having finished the core five Sailor Senshi, after I publicly release Eternal Sailor Moon's cards tomorrow, I think I'll be taking a bit of time off, and releasing the next model in the Sailor Moon line on July 17th. The last thing I want to do is burn myself out, after all... and finishing the next one up will be a particularly intensive process. The public release of Sailor Mercury's cards will still happen on schedule on July 12th. In the meantime, I'd like to get

May 2021: Growth At Last It's finally happened. After twenty years spent trying to build an online presence, after so much time and so many failed attempts to make a name for myself, I've finally discovered a way to get known and make some money by doing something that I love. I didn't have many expectations when I released the Sailor Moon Koikatsu card last week. I was proud of the work I put into it, absolutely, and I thought that if anything I'd made in Koikatsu deserved to be paid content for a while, it was that... but the last week-plus has seen more success than my Patreon has had in the four years I've been running it. To all my new Patrons, I'm more grateful for your support than you can possibly know. I wish there were a way I could show you how much confidence your generosity is giving me... it really feels like I'm flying high right now. The release of the Eternal Sailor Moon card yesterday was its own milestone; it's the first time I've been able to successfully import
BHS Blogress Report: 2021, April - New Avenues
April – New Avenues Well, when I least expected it, I found a new creative outlet. How about that. I bought Koikatsu at the beginning of the month as an impulse purchase… I got an unexpected payday and it had been in my wish list for a while, so I went ahead and took the plunge. What I expected was a dating sim/h-game with a robust character creator and a thriving modding community. I got those, sure… but I also got a massive virtual toybox filled with almost every anime character I’ve ever loved, the means to recreate the few that are missing, and literal millions of props, backgrounds, and special effects to play with. If you’re reading this on DA, you’ve seen the results: all month long, I’ve been busily making scenes with the characters I’ve downloaded, both for my own enjoyment and for others. I’m making a concentrated effort to build up my skills with both KK and the CharaStudio add-on, with the eventual goal of illustrating as much of Shattered Skies as I can with

March 2021 - About Him I've been meaning to write about this subject for a couple weeks now, and I've found it tremendously difficult, for a number of reasons. Please bear with me as I do my best, because despite how little my opinion on the subject matters in the grand scheme of things... because of how close to home it is, and how it impacts me, I think I need to get it out. It's time to address Joss Whedon. Around thirteen years ago, a close friend, a friend with whom I shared an incredible number of interests and whom I trusted implicitly, told me that after around three years of knowing each other, it was time that she introduced me to Whedon's work. She was a devoted and proud Whedonite, who counted attending one of the first screenings of the Serenity movie as one of her fondest moments. Her enthusiasm transferred to me in short order; over the next couple months, I marathoned Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Serenity, I streamed the premieres of each episode of Doctor Horrible's
