Happy New Year!

Farewell 2017, happy 2018!

I did my usual and had a drink while 3d-ing.  I probably should have taken a photo of the drink for the benefit of the steem crowd but didn't.  JJ piked out but the kids stayed up with me (probably for the novelty of staying up til midnight as 8yo's bedtime is 8, and the big two at 9:30).  Despite procrastinating for pretty much the entire day I managed to finally close the retopo and have started painting.

Come on in, the water's fine! :D

Special request for @kubbyelizabeth! And a reminder of what happens when fyn gets carried away with ideas ;D

I've done progblogs for this one so just included detail shots, though can do the whole shebang in one if that's what people want.  Additionally there was supposed to be a process video for this but my computer crashed while I was recording one of the sessions which corrupted that video so I spat it and gave up on that one.

Water's Fine progblog #3

Last progblog I'd finished light and shadow 1.  I hoped I could get light and shadow 2 done in one session.  I did get there eventually XD

steem-mers light and shadow 2

Light and shadow 3 should theoretically go a little bit quicker as they're kind of emphasis layers.  I'll decide then whether they're high enough to do caustics, at this stage I'm likely to bail as doing caustics on this many characters feels a little bit daunting.  Hoping to knock this one off tomorrow, but that will depend on what else is happening tomorrow.

Water's Fine progblog #2

Last progblog I was starting to work on patterning the merminnows with help from my frenemy Google Image Search (for minnow and danio, I didn't even know what a danio was until I started searching, but they are tiny and have interesting patterns).  After about a million billion trillion years, the flats got done:

And then about that again, light and shadow 1:

Water's Fine progblog #1

Got this request on Discord from @kubbyelizabeth:

Happy to help out a steemate where I can, I agreed and asked her what she would like me to draw.  The answer:

and then when I asked when she needed it by, it was along the lines of "whenever it's done".

Easiest client in the universe to work for! XD

steem upgoat comment footer process

 

I was going to make a comment footer anyway (which turned out to be bigger than I thought on busy, couldn't get Krita to resize it without things going stupid though) and decided to make a process video purely for testing out dtube and bitchute.

Art therapy 2

we're still here

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.

A lot of lovebombing from these two helped a lot.  There are a few other non-humans in the house but Taliesin (the dog) and Darkness (the cat) are specifically mine.

Art therapy

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. 

From when she was a kitten she would snooze or just sit and chill on my lap whenever I was at my computer.  She got me through uni and a bad breakup which had me running home to Christmas Island for a little while.  If not for her I wouldn't have gone back to Perth and would have ended up living a completely different life.  Her weight (what there was of it, she was a teeny tiny cat) and purring and soft fur got me through all the things that required focus and concentration while sitting still.

It's really hard concentrating without her there, and my chest hurts as I wait and then remember she's not going to jump up now.

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

#steemwars sketches

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!

Do quickie lead images for bulletins on request:

Killer quok

 

And see if I can find anything fun to sketchcomic on the #steemwars tag I guess.  Fun ^_^
