Things that happened in the year I’ve been rebuilding myself:
I was really afraid that this commission I was hired to do was gonna look like trash, because it’s got four people around a table, and two more in the background, and I had to come up with the background from scratch and I suck butts at backgrounds. BUT. It actually doesn’t look half bad yet. I have all my background lines in place, and I’m working on a clean sketch of the people. Thank god for my kitchen though, because using it as a frame of reference for how things should look at certain angles definitely saved my butt a few times. Coloring this monster is sure gonna be interesting…
But for now, I’m more than pleased that I’ve been working on it for a few days, and haven’t ended up upset that it appeared to have deteriorated in quality after I came back from a break.
Dri started writing more MLB:HaA, and there was one scene that made me think that Little Lion Man is pro’lly gonna be Prime’s anthem for the season.
These Gummi Ship missions make me want to punch so many holes into my walls. Why are they a thing? Who at Squeenix thought that Gummi missions were a good idea? I hate this. Just give me my trophies.
I just realized that I mentioned the new kitten last week, but never posted any pictures of him! This is Edgar. My mom named him after the butler in Disney’s ‘The Aristocats’. (Though, when I told most of my friends what his name was, they all immediately asked me if he was in a hole because of Achievement Hunter.)
I have seven more trophies to get before I’ve perfected Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, and two of them are gummi ship mission related and I hate everything about the gummi ship. The other five are easy peasy though. I still have to do a beginner and proud playthrough, get the under 15 hour trophy, and the trophies for not changing the characters’ equipment, and not dying all game. I’m probably going to end up exploiting the “clock resets to 0 at 99 hours” glitch for the Speedster Trophy though, because there is no way I’m good enough at KH to be able to get it legitimately, and sometimes I pause the game and walk away for an hour to do chores.
Boy, I just love the Kingdom Hearts series. Is it December yet? I really want 2.5 right now.
I’m going to install Dreamweaver on my laptop before I leave, and fart around in the HTML files for the school website that Mr. D gave me all afternoon. And all tomorrow. And all weekend. Oh boy. I guess I’ll use my tumblr layout as a guinea pig.
EDIT: Alas, the copy of CS2 that the school has doesn’t include Dreamweaver.
@werewolfviking said: Did you rub the kitten with something that they sleep on regularly? I heard you should do that so that the other cats see that he’s part of their space.
I didn’t even think of doing that. I looked up some stuff online, and we’re gonna keep him in a separate room from Piper and Brandi for a little while, and swap out the things that they do sleep on sometimes, for things he’s sleeping on, to get them accustomed to his scent. But rubbing him down with things that smell like them is also a great idea. Thank you so much!
