Because some of the people on the TeamAus Discord chat keep calling upvotes upboats and recently along came upgoats.
Upgoat on an upboat
Apparently I'm the #steemwars cartoonist for #teamaustralia. I think I'm supposed to occasionally produce stuff for our illustrious leader SirKnight:
Do quickie lead images for bulletins on request:
And see if I can find anything fun to sketchcomic on the #steemwars tag I guess. Fun ^_^
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:
when I idly wonder out loud: "I wonder if Asian dragons ever have spinal problems."
"Sorry you talking to me dear?" He hits the pause button. I hate repeating myself but I'm as used to this as he's used to my semi-random inanity.
Sunday and Monday streaming
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:
Yesterday I switched up between working on the Zul'jinn concept:
Kludgy OBS scene switcher for linux
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.
So there's some scenes set up in OBS like so:
Set shortcuts for the scenes in OBS settings like so:
Bees have ants?
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
7yo: bees have ants? o_O
3D Coat/Blender notes: Getting ptex textures from 3d Coat to Blender
tl;dr: bake the damn things.
After painting, from the paint room go to Textures > Texture Baking Tool
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)
Works in progress
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).
