Art therapy 2

4 comments

Go my thoroughly imaginative titles.

Some things are still hurting (including guilt about not making anything to commemorate the deaths of some of my other pets, long other story there) but I'm functional.  Going to try and catch up on all the internet messages now.  The face to face appointments and things are just going to have to wait til next week when I can handle dealing with people that aren't people I like.

RIP Malki

My cat Graymalkin died recently.  She was 17 years old, and went peacefully curled up in the sun in one of her favourite sunning spots.

Upgoat on an upboat

Because some of the people on the TeamAus Discord chat keep calling upvotes upboats and recently along came upgoats.

Apparently I'm the #steemwars cartoonist for #teamaustralia.  I think I'm supposed to occasionally produce stuff for our illustrious leader SirKnight:

Sir Knight sir!

The things you do...

0 comments

Like just driving along minding your own business and needing to turn across an intersection (in my case, Kenwick Link turning right onto Royal St).  Green arrow, go, oh oncoming police car with lights and siren going.  They weave through the traffic piled up at the red light making some use of the turning lane.  I stop in the middle of the intersection as you do.  They pause briefly in front of the lights, realise I've stopped, and speed off on their merry way (hope they weren't racing to something too hazardous).

The real reason why J wears headphones all the time...

...is so he doesn't have to listen to my inane rambling XD

So he's over at the table minding his own business, listening to whatever it is he's listening to while opening boosters and sorting and sleeving Magic cards (sometimes audiobooks, sometimes podcasts, sometimes footy games, sometimes music), and I'm working on detailing this thing:

Sunday and Monday streaming

0 comments

I'm usually streaming on Picarto on Sundays after 12 and Thursdays from 9am-3pm AWST, though lion dance season is coming up which may throw the Sunday streaming a bit.  I did a random ~4hr stream today as the in-laws have a busy week this week and decided to come today rather than not coming at all because they're awesome like that, working on an Ingress wallpaper:

Kludgy OBS scene switcher for linux

0 comments

Edited 2017 Jan 7: made the scripts slightly more reliable (not relying on window ids) but they will now get extremely confused if there's more than one instance of Blender open

Because I'm not smart enough to get the MacOS version of the Automatic Scene Switching plugin for OBS Studio, I gumbied an easy manual one with bash scripts.

Bees have ants?

0 comments

11yo: the drones are the male bees.  They sit around and eat honey, then they mate and die.
7yo: don't they store honey?
11yo: the drones are the ones with wings.
7yo: some bees don't have wings? O_o
11yo: OH! I was thinking about ants XD

3D Coat/Blender notes: Getting ptex textures from 3d Coat to Blender

0 comments

tl;dr: bake the damn things.

After painting, from the paint room go to Textures > Texture Baking Tool

3d Coat Texture Baking Tool menu item

Fill in the stuff on the dialogue box as appropriate (I have no idea how correct my settings are, I tend to take a best guess with anything I don't know :P)
