April ProgBlog #1: the insidious GAPS!

Blatting about

That's not an acronym, just me screaming in annoyance.

The underside of the wing was the absolute worst thing ever as no matter how I moved the feathers, gaps kept appearing.

Sunday was a super slow day to begin with as the bigs and I were recovering from doing a show on the Saturday (they were more tired than me as they were the ones actually flipping out and stuff, I was just kind of trying to help direct as I'd been unexpectedly thrust into that role as the coach who had been supposed to be doing that job had unfortunately come down with something the night before).

I did try to get some stuff done and it was mostly rearranging feathers.  It's one of those things where 20% of the work takes up 80% of the time.  In this case, it seemed like no matter how I moved the feathers around, these large gaps would keep appearing andw ould need more shuffling around to try and cover up, and just when I thought I had it right, there would suddenly be another one.

Just doing that ended up somehow occupying most of the day (though I was moving extremely slowly because I was that freaking tired).  At least it was only on the underside, the topside didn't give me any problems.

On Monday I tried working on Aoife again and got the skin somewhat workable.  Then spent a lot of time trying to work out how I was going to do the hair.  I did try for either a green or pink undertone to the other coloured hair and could not get anything to look good.  So currently have decided it's green with pink shimmer seeing as we have a shiny reflecting the opposite colour thing happening.

Obviously I haven't done the shading for it yet.

I've been doing slightly better in the getting to bed at a reasonable hour department, and a term later I think I've got a handle on the lesson planning and general group coaching nonsense, so hopefully I'll be able to sort out all the things that have been all over the joint as I've been trying to get used to new things.
