July Homeschooling Miscellany

0 comments

Right at the beginning of July we went to Melbourne for 4 days to visit my 97yo grandmother.  While we were there we also went to check out the city and Mum decided that we may as well go and have our first snow experience seeing as we were there in winter, and generously paid for a private tour.

Avi showing off its feathers

Base checking out Avi's feathers

Avi showing off its feathers to an admiring Base.  Turned off the covert layers so the viewport animation would play in real time (going to have to just toggle visibility when there's lots of characters) and left them off so it would render a bit quicker.  Going to do a couple of refinement passes and decide whether I'm going to interact with them this time round or just have them fly off.

Here we have Azrael in a rare moment of happiness (no he's not about to kill someone this time).

And this time they're not broken XD

Feather rigging took forever.  I probably still haven't done it right and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make controllers for them (good thing I'm not aspiring to be a rigger!) but it will do for now.

Ingress wallpaper: hatfullofcats and PyjamaNinjas

0 comments

When I first started playing Ingress, hatfullofcats was the first person to welcome me on board and drag me into the faction hangout, and also among the first of the local crew I met in real life.

And after talking to them and their partner PyjamaNinjas for a while and seeing those names crop up semi-frequently in my scanner, my brain eventually developed characters for their igns because that's what I do.  And yes occasionally I like taking things literally :P so I made them a wallpaper just because :)

As it turned out the other 7yo's pre-soaked pea (near the green stick) hadn't "drownded", it had just been taking its sweet time sprouting.

After Pokemon Go was officially released (with some very agonising teething problems), one of the other field testers/admins of the Western Australian Pokemon Go community I'd made the wapogologo for said it would be cool if there was a similar logo with the legendary birds (who are the official mascots for the three teams).  So I made one using the same colour schemes as the eeveelutions.

Next up, team logos/patches.

Because I'm failing at making proper progblogs due to having to slog through a massive backlog (which now has a severe dent in it, unfortunately I think I also made a dent in myself XD).
