Gravity Chubbanimals Number 18 by trenchmaker Gravity Chubbanimals Number 18 by trenchmaker
Oh my... if anybody feels offended: I was really bad at rope climbing in school myself. I know the walk of shame... ;) How are your climbing skills?

As promised not political correct fun this week and no tissue warning needed.
Bonding: Done. They will still argue now and than, don't worry. I still mull over transparent speech bubbles or not. Maybe I'll test it next week and you can decide what you like better *scratches head*

PS. Kiki totally is too heavy for climbing when she does it consciously.... she's a little sushi roll on four legs. :D

thank you dear! It's not that complicated to draw a cat! ;)

Regarding commissions: generally yes, but there's always a pretty tight time frime per year when I actually do have time for these and for this year there's already a waiting list because some people were so kind and be patient.
I'm booked out till end of August and will roll into the new fair cycle (there are two per year, January- beginning of August- for SPIEL, late August-November for Toy Fair) soon after. If any commissions are available I will state so in my journal. :)

I don't see how that has anything to do with weight - I've always been slim and agile and done well in gymnastics, but rope climbing is just beyond me. It's technique more than anything! Or maybe willpower... XD

trenchmaker Featured By Owner May 24, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Well in Kikis case it is a combination of her weight and lack of skill I'd say. Maybe I should have posted another page first where Patches accidently insults her (and her chubbyness).
I know there are different possibilities why rope climbing seems impossible- I didn't try to generalize. This is her explanation. And basically: The tree had a way too smooth surface. Scouts honor ;)

What other things do you excel at
Reply
:icontrenchmaker:
trenchmaker Featured By Owner May 24, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I'm good at everything that doesn't rely on speed but endurance and normally favour everything with leg work. Though I don't mind using my arms- I love badminton (but normally end up doing something else).

I like to swim and do so mostly every week but I have low blood pressure and need half an hour to warm up completely and swim mostly 1-2 hours without pausing. I'm a medium but steady crawler.
Otherwise skating- and here again... 20 km are totally fine but I like to keep my steady pace.
Same goes for jogging, cycling and high rope courses (love these but ache allover afterwards).

Can I say wow. I find Badminton to be really fun. I understand with the swimming as much as I love it takes a couple of minutes to get used to the water. Swimming is a stress reliever for me and something I do for fun.
I prefer walking to jogging, I'm more comfortable with the speed I set. 
I've never been high roping or cycling, is it fun? It lookes really interesting.
do you do regular skating or ice skating? 
Reply
:icontrenchmaker:
trenchmaker Featured By Owner May 25, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Okay... let's do it in order :XD:
High rope climbing is fun if you're not afraid of heights and I highly recommend wearing leggings or compfy pants because you have the holder tightly wrapped around your lower body for some hours.
Good shoes and very good tight gloves are important. I used fingerless gloves the first time and had blisters on all 10 fingers. Not funny.
The most important part is that you take your time with the different courses- normally there are different routes (we have green, red and black) and you usually work your way up. Literally up because the highest are in the crowns of the trees.
See: www.tip-berlin.de/files/mediaf…
For me it's purely fun though it's 100%ly a full-body workout. If you ever get a chance to do one I'd recommend it. If you have a climbing buddy the better. Don't try to stick to groups, do it with only 1 person. Trust me, it's better if you have the scurity of one partner but not a group that's holding you up when somebody is stuck or gets a fit.
Cycling: I have to ask, you've never been on a bike?

Regarding skating: I do both though I prefer to be outside and that means regular skates. Normally in the ice skating hall you have a lot of slo-mo skating beginners and doing my rounds feels a bit like a hamster in a wheel. Outside at the waterside you can just skate and skate... and skate some more and since the same route is used by the marathon training groups (who don't react kindly to disturbance) it's mostly newbie free. If this sounds mean: A beginner crushed into me once because she didn't practice beforehand and it was a bloody and messy disaster. Hitting somebody with 25km/h hill down isn't funny at all. O_o

And basically it doesn't mean I'm in funky sports mood 7d/w. I usually do 1-2 bigger sessions per week and the rest is max walking and cycling. If I have the time. No use to stress myself if I don't feel like excercising.

Owwe I'm sorry about your hands.ill. Think about it sounds really interesting. If I do try out high roping I'll stick with bring a friend, I would feel really uncomfortable with a group of people. Thanks for the advice.

To the cycling, For some reason I imagined cycling as the cycling race but yes I've ridden a bike.lol sorry my bad.

ive never been ice skating I've always wanted to try but I've never brought myself go to the ice skating rink. I understand wanting to skate outside, I hated when people slammed into me in the skating hall.

i see. That make sense to me.

If you can skate, you can ice skate as well. You should do it :D it's fun in winter and if you do it just because you want to spend some time on the ice. The articifial ice is usually better if you're still unused to it.
No holes hacked in by some guys who think it's hilarious if more than one person catches it and takes a tumble ;(

Well, there are 100%ly different reasons why somebody simply can't do it.
What I disliked about it is that *everybody*had to do it regardless the individual physical situation. Like I could and can do a headstand but nowadays I'd probably have a problem with the fast movement and get dizzy.

Nevertheless my old cat (the original Kiki) wasn't a good climber and sometimes I had to pluck her from a branch because she couldn't get on OR off- she was also afraid of heights. ^^;

True i hated that fact of everybody has to do that.
Never heard of a kitty who is afraid of heights though hihi sounds funny if you think about it.
A original kiki so the cat is based on a real life one cool. Makes it even more cute to read Meow :3

Basically the cats are based on every cat my family ever had and the funny moments I had and hopefully will have with them. Since my parents currently play tin opener for four tom cats and I have siblings myself plus the ones already on the other side of the rainbow bridge it's a lot of... stupidity I remember and see. :D
