Bigger Problems
"Death is the solution to all problems. No man - no problem."
~Joseph Stalin

Still not sure what these two are up to.  It seems to involve fire.  They'd really like to be fighting each other, but for now it seems they have... Bigger problems.

The new PC is on order! (Well, the parts are on order -- I'm building it.)  It's a BEAST, so with a little luck, maybe I'll have enough VRAM to actually render whatever it is that these two are trying not to be murdered by!

Rivals
“Ambition is like love, impatient both of delays and rivals.”
~Buddha

Not sure where these two came from. It's been quite some time since anything like an OC began rattling around my brain -- now, suddenly, two at once. I think they might be vampire hunters. I KNOW they compete furiously. They think they hate each other. But after seeing how this image turned out... I don't think I believe them! Hopefully, they'll tell me more about their rivalry soon. And, you know, maybe they'll also tell me their names?

Health Code Violation
"A demon, an orc, and a goblin walk into a bar..."
~Anonymous


I started this for the weekly DAZ PC Inspiration challenge. Then I went shopping and bought a ton of stuff. The result is this.

Supernatural apocalypse.

In a bar.

I'm sure there's a story in there somewhere, but I'm afraid I haven't figured out what yet. I probably would have just kept adding things, but even with the FANTASTIC Scene Optimizer untility, I was was using 94.6% of my GPU memory while rendering, so... I stopped.

Ain't No Rest for The Wicked

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 23, 2018, 5:30 PM
I really don't have much to say.  I just grew tired of dropping by my dA page and seeing a several-year-old journal entry.  I wish I had something more profound to add, but I don't usually even have time to pee during a normal workday, so I'm afraid this is about as deep and meaningful as I'm likely to be these days.

Peace, all.  Keep making art. ♥

Proud of our Wisconsin teachers. When the product of your labor is a child's future, you must stand up for what you know is right. Funding my publicly-educated autistic son's paraprofessional should come before funding freeway interchanges. Period.

I may be soft in your palm but I'll soon grow
Hungry for a fight, and I will not let you win.
My pretty mouth will frame the phrases that will
Disprove your faith in man.
So if you catch me trying to find my way into your
Heart from under your skin...
Fast as you can, baby scratch me out, free yourself
Fast as you can...
