*Crawls out of drawing dungeon*
So... it's been a while since I wrote one of these. In light of the deviantArt Eclipse, I took another look at what's on my profile and contemplated what the new changes will bring. I believe the journals will stay around... *checks* yeah, there is mention of that. I decided to give journals another shot. In the past, entries has been a bit sparsed, filled with back burner ideas and things that'll never get done. For what I'm working on, I want to focus on mentioning more immediate things. I will also talk about random things that I happen to come across during the month so far and updates to long term projects and goals.Pony Stuff
Most of you like the ponies so we'll start off with that. What did I think about the last season? I don't know... I haven't watched it. It's not that I lost interest. Watching anything, even if it's an episode, requires commitment on my part. Otherwise, I will miss most of what it has to offer. When I'm watching an episode, I like to take it all in and start thinking up ideas of what to draw. If I have my head down on my tablet, I won't be able to do that. It's the same thing with anime, I have to actively watch it and read the subs to understand what's going on. I have heard things about what happened last season such as the Kirin and uh... what's her name? *checks* cozy glow. She reminds me of Darla from Cats Don't Dance. I want her to be the new evil mastermind like Equestria has never seen; so evil that even Tirek's afraid of her. She'll even do [another] song about her evil ways in a pink dress on top of a piano.Art Stuff
The art stuff is still going. For those of you with a keen eye may have noticed that one my patreon pages is gone. I decided to concentrate on just one page, the saucy page. Because of this, the rate of safe stuff I can do in a month will be just like before I started on patreon. If you are interested in the saucy stuff, feel free to check out the link at the bottom. I also post early safe stuff on the public feed there.
On the queue ready to post will be 4 ponies, 1 furry, 4 humans.
- Twilight in a suit 2: Did I ever post the first one? *checks* hmm, no I haven't. Okay, maybe I should since it's not that saucy. #2 is just a superman parody.
- Rarity portrait: Rarity anthro in a dress. She looks angry though.
- Rainbow portrait: Just an anthro in a hoodie.
Why yes, there are saucy versions of the above. You'll have to find them though.
- Sweetie belle: her dancing... kinda
- A kitty with wings: just wanted to draw a kitty with wings
- hOOMunz: 3 girls and a mustache guy if you care about non furry things
On the to-do list will be a catgirl mage, celly x luna pic, 3 isabel... woop, those are saucy, forget what you heard. There's an octavia pic, a Marle pic, princess peach bride, and maybe a Yona pic.Pop Culture?
So what's the deal with furry pokemon? Having a pikachu wear a detective hat and do the doolittle thing with a would be trainer is one thing but rendering all that fur? Before a heated discussion starts, I have to say that I am totally okay with it. Why? Because I'm not that into pokemon. I'm not a hardcore fan, I never played the games and I don't hate it either. There has to be some give when doing a live action film base on a 2D animation. There are some things I noticed from the trailer that I find interesting and slightly amusing (spoilers?). Pikachu doesn't have black beady eyes, Squirtle seems to be missing, Mr. Mime is creepy (maybe they should have added fur), Psyduck still stares into space, vore fans will be very interested in that charizard/pikachu scene, and it's apparently that time of the year when all the bulbasaurs make their annual migratory march to warmer climate.Games
Speaking of pokemon, there's a new game out. It seems to also be tailored to beginners. I wouldn't mind trying it out just because eevee's cute... so cute... *brushes teeth*
I plunged myself into Oxygen not Included, that space colony sim game. It will take several tries to progress to the end game, if I can even make it that far. Dealing with gas is challenging.
I heard there's a new Minecraft modpack out called Stoneblock. It's like skyblock but surrounded by stone. I wonder if I should fall down that rabbit hole again. Surely, there has to be more to it than just being surrounded by stone.Real Life
It just snowed for one day and now it's all gone because of the rain. I got to test out my new boots. The old cheapos I bought has a hole in it so I invested (heh, for a pair of boots) in buying a slightly pricier pair. This month, I learned there's such a thing called mink oil which you treat leather with it in order to protect it from water. *Runs up to your ear* ... it's made from minks ... *runs*
That's all the rambling I can think of at this time. In the comment section below, let me know what your favorite pony episode from last season is, which pokemon character you're interested in seeing real-ified, and whether or not you think minks are evil.The Plugging
Alright, it's time to plug it in. I gotta do it. It was inevitable. You can show your support at the following locations:
