Tried messin’ around in Sculptris.
Nice program and fun to use, but doesn’t have a lot of the tools I’d like to have. lol
Also when trying to do lil touches and the hair it kept crashing horribly on me, hence the roughness of it still.
But eh, for a free digisculpting program it’s not terrible.

Wanted to do a little testing for myself to see how well I could emulate the Yogscast style they got on many of their arts.
It’s… kinda close. But still ended up putting in my own style a good bit without realizing till later. lol
Put a little side by side of what my body frames ended up to be like proportion wise and such vs. the ones from the background of the website.
My two test subjects were Rythian and Zoeya. :)
All of the information in this essay came from A People’s History of the United States, by Howard Zinn, and Lies My Teacher Told Me, by James W. Loewen, both of which uses primary sources such as eyewitness accounts, journal entries, and letters from Christopher Columbus himself.
A very important note about Bartolomé de las Casas and the African slave trade
This issue keeps coming up and, despite my footnotes, I keep seeing commentary about it so I’m going to address it here.
Initially, Bartolomé de las Casas advocated the use of African slaves instead of native labor. In the first few years after he renounced his land and title, his initial cause was to end the suffering of the natives, rather than seeking an end to the institution of slavery itself, and so this became his deplorable rationale for the endorsement of African slavery. Bartolomé de las Casas eventually retracted those views, however, and came to see all forms of slavery as being equally wrong. In The History of the Indiespublished in 1527, he wrote the following:
I soon repented and judged myself guilty of ignorance. I came to realize that black slavery was as unjust as Indian slavery…
and I was not sure that my ignorance and good faith would secure me in the eyes of God.
I know that the discovery of the New World means a lot of different things to a lot of different cultures. I like the sound of Bartolomé Day. If you don’t like that, call it Indigenous People’s Day. Or perhaps Chris-Columbus-was-a-turd Day. I’d even settle for just calling it MONDAY.
But please, oh please
do not call it Columbus Day.
You know how people say keep your black cats inside around halloween? Cat was in the window watching things like normal, we hear a crash, realize someone fucking shot a marble through the glass. They were a bad shot so the little dude is fine, but bailed too fast for us to even get a glimpse. Don’t know if they slingshot it and ran or shot from a car, but they were GONE within 20 seconds of impact.
APPARENTLY INSIDE KITTIES AREN’T COMPLETELY SAFE EITHER.
Please, all, watch out for your black cats!
The actual fuck? I don’t understand why anyone would try to hurt those little darlings.
Signal boosting like the wind.
Ugh. I have a tuxedo cat whose a runt and you can only see the white on her nose and a mostly black calico. If anyone messes with my cats they’ll definitely be in for it. :I
Please keep your black cat out of any street facing windows during the month of October!
Any windows that are not facing a secured yard are not really safe, especially in more populated areas.
not only do people like to throw things at the windows in an attempt to hurt them, there have been cases of people opening or breaking windows to steal the cat.
Keep all cats out of windows if you want to go the better safe than sorry approach!
Currently not letting mine in the window unless I am sitting right there with him.
I know I keep reblogging black cat safety stuff this season guys but it is a serious issue and is worthy of repeating.
Ever since we rescued Beetle we’ve trained him to not sit in the windows, specifically in anticipation of Halloween. Black cats are the biggest victims of Halloween inspired cruelty. If you need proof, just look at how many shelters stop adopting out black cats around Halloween.. it is to prevent them being adopted as props for parties or flesh to batter and bruise because our fellow human beings simply aren’t all good.
Be careful with ALL your animals this Halloween. With black cats, take special care, but as with all holidays that have masses of strangers roaming the streets after dark for any reason, get your pets indoors. If you can’t, hide them. Tarp your ponds, keep the outside dogs and cats in, bring in the turtles and tortoises, if it is alive keep it out of view. Because some malicious soul might decide it would be more fun to make them dead.
Reblogging again for good points made above. ^
Kyorg’s character Araya. It was a fun warm up. :> <3
Based on this coloring of Araya:
Going out on the 18th at gawd awful early hour (6 or 7 am lol) to get blood drawn for tests.
Bout two years ago I was feeling really good. Well… health wise. Job wise and living situation was… crap and both still are… a lot…
BUT… I felt good, didn’t have a lot of energy but enough. Was down to my best weight ever and was only about 20lbs. off from goal weight. Was super focused and positive.
But these paste two years I’ve gotten more and more tired literally all the time without medicine to help, muscles gotten really weak, joints ache, mind is all fog and no focus, really hard to stay positive and I keep getting emotional over silly things. (thankfully not angry end of that though) Also gained back like 40 lbs. of weight. I have basically the same diet and exercise habits as I have for a long time. I tend to be a creature of habit.
So besides that, and some other symptoms, mum and I chatted it over and decided what it all points to most is probably a thyroid problem, maybe a long running one which might explain things that have happened in the past and my long running hard time with getting my body to let go of weight.
So the blood being drawn will be put through a full panel for thyroid tests. Hopefully finding the problem. I really hope it IS the problem, cause it would have the best solution. It would be a life long one, but a solution all the same that not complicated.
Least I have awesome family and an amazing bf who always make me smile and feel pretty happy despite the crap that’s going on.~ <3 <3 <3
Image I doodled up that got accepted to be image for Jesse’s Hearthstone vids. :D
Really happy he liked it. :)
While looking around my photobucket, I found some old things I don’t remember ever posting.
- Top left is an ooooooooold fanart for Jesse Cox (aka omgcata on youtube). Was back when I was trying to get into painty coloring styles instead of going with what was comfortable. So it never got finished cause it never ended up right. lol
It’s amusing lookin’ at it now. You can see style changes and stuff from then to now. lol
- Top right was going to be an entry for Coey’s Ghost Book thing. But again fell victim to the trying to color a certain way and it was never finished. Maybe I will in the future though. I still really like it. :)
- Bottom left. Was, and will still, coming up with an idea to paint with acrylics. Was going to paste a bunch of playing cards on a board then paint the image on good thick paper. Then paste it onto the ‘carded’ board. Still planning on it but have yet to decide on a design for the Queen of Spades that I like
- Bottom right is an old character of mine that is one of 6 ‘boogeymen’. She uses projected illusions to cause fear vs, it being herself physically doing the scaring/frights.
The majority of Tumblr users are really lovely and respectful towards artists, and it’s wonderful to have a digital platform where art is, generally, so highly valued and appreciated.
However, there are a few problems that artists face day-to-day from Tumblr users that I’m…
