Pixietrix as a pony

Went through the entirety of today tossing around ideas for sketchies while doing the usual things that I do.  Got to the end of the day and 10yo and I had settled in to draw together (well she was drawing, I was 3d-ing) and I mentioned that I didn't have any ideas for my sketchy today and she said "DRAW ME AS A PONY!"

I asked "What's your special talent?"

thank you sketch

Quick thank you sketch I scratched out for a very good friend of mine.  We've been chatting constantly online for years and years now and haven't actually met in person, but this didn't stop him going above and beyond one night, staying up with me while I was having a meltdown over my failing computer system, helping me research problems with first Ubuntu and then Chakra, and finally recommending Manjaro and waiting around while I muddled my way through the install to make sure I would at least be able to go to bed having gotten the system operational.  He even said t

Yue and Liana

Apparently to make sure I don't get carried away I need to use the pencil brushes (I use the sketch and pencil brushes from David Revoy's brushpack for Krita) rather than the ink pen brush.

one of those days

Even shadowshifters have those days :) These are actually quite relaxing.  Motivating me to try for one a day again.

I haven't drawn Twilight in forever.  The last things I posted of it were a picture Sprat drew and that I coloured in 2005:

If I were a My Little Pony...

I I were a My Little Pony my special talent would be inexplicably injuring myself

My special talent would be inexplicably injuring myself.

I have no idea what I did to my toe when I took the kids to the playground but it hurts.  It's currently been strapped (made it up on the fly as I don't actually know how to strap the end of a foot, and I hate it for the same reason that I hate wearing shoes and even the fact it's making it hurt less isn't making it any more tolerable).

April Homeschooling Miscellany

We spent almost the entire month of April on Christmas Island.  This post is part homeschool log and part "travel photos" therefore more picture heavy than usual so grab a drink and a snack.

Strike's kids at a meet in a pink-lit private room at a club

A prickle of nervousness crawled up Silver's spine and settled at the nape of his neck as he followed Aurelius up the very familiar corridor towards one of The Geisha's private rooms.  He didn't usually get nervous going into or even at meets.  He was good at what he did and had an excellent track record for getting favourable outcomes for himself and his employer (not necessarily so much for the other party but that wasn't really his problem).

3d Coat screenie - sculpt nearly done

Felt like posting a quick screenie as I haven't done a public wip for a while (there's a couple on Patreon that are well before this stage).  Still have to do his wings, hands, feet and tail but am pretty happy with how he turned out.

March Homeschooling Miscellany

0 comments

March was kind of insane like February was as 12yo started doing FreeG and we started vaguely prepping for our somewhat unexpected April trip to Christmas Island and 8yo had diagonistic-related appointments, and it was crazy to the point where I didn't take notes on our random interesting conversations for this thing like I usually do, so it's just photos.
