This isn’t too bad, actually… I’ll have some updates of consequence later this weekend. Go go car unfucking!
I think I over did with the shading… oh well.

Hey, looks good, DBK!
this is what happens when I try to draw with an art block.
Luna looking swag, with her wings tucked? I can roll with this. All hail!
Hi everyone, I hope you’re having a good day and can spare five minutes to help me out. I have recently decided that I would love to travel to the USA, to LA specifically and study Traditional Sign Writing at Los Angeles Trade Technical College. I am an Australian citizen, living in Melbourne, and…
Reblogging for a good cause!
So, for the few that follow me, I’ve been busy since I got laid off a week and a half ago.
The biggest change? I’ve been cleaning. Daily. Vacuuming the carpets, picking up around the house, mopping the kitchen… I’ve had a dish-free sink here for a week running, now! I’m running dishes every two to three days, rather than once a week or longer. The laundry’s getting folded, the towels are getting put away, I’ve been sweeping out the cobwebs, raking out the dead leaves and branches on the lawn in this sunny 60’s-ish weather…
… what the FUCK is wrong with me?!
Dear Bronies, Friends, Fellow Humans,
I write this not as part of an organization, or a group, but as a fan of colorful ponies. Like you, I was drawn to My Little Pony for good reasons, and knew that my life would become better if I interacted with people who shared a similar interest. I…
… what more can I say?
Well… photos aren’t going to happen. Roomie’s not comfortable with showing our house to total strangers… but I’ll see if I can at least do text updates…
So, there’s this blog out there called ‘Unfuck Your Habitat’, designed to get you off your ass and cleaning your house by being… well, to be frank, mildly abusive.
In short, they verbally will kick your flank up the stairs, into the attic, out the window onto the lawn, back into the house, and down into the basement before letting up, if that’s what it takes to clean up.
What’s this got to do with lil’ ol’ Noble Cause, you might ask? Well, to get into some RL details, I live in a house with a roommate who’s a bit of a mad scientist. The man makes lasers for FUN and got me into flying RC helicopters. So there’s that. As a result of this, we have accumulated a LOT of shit over the five years we’ve lived here. Old computer cases (with parts), helicopters, planes, laser bits, the CNC machine my roomie built… you name it, it’s around here SOMEWHERE.
Here’s the problem. This house is on the order of 120 years old. It’s New York, so that means wet, and snow, as well as high winds and blazing sun. This place hasn’t really been taken care of before we moved in. Paint from the 40’s, electrical wiring from the 30’s (in the attic, two inches above the insulation. And did I mention they were live wires?). There’s a slant to the entire foundation that we need to jack up the house for in the dug out pit of blue stone that we call our basement. It’s a LOT of work.
To get to the point, I’m going to walk around with the camera this weekend and take photos. My plan? unfucking the kitchen, the rest of the living room, the laundry room (and the laundry, by proxy), and the master bedroom. While I’m at it, I’m going to be cataloging the extent of the work that needs doing to the house, since Great Stuff only goes so far, and see if anybody’s got any tips. The mold on the grout around the bathtub, for starters. Tilex doesn’t even TOUCH that shit…
Celestia and Luna help me, what have I gotten myself into?
go-vrrr, my dear, beloved sister, this is all YOUR DAMN FAULT! *shakes angry hoof*
I’m going to be going through my tumblr and cleaning up the posts I made, in order to prepare for the switch over to what I’ve really wanted to do with this place. It’s still going to be pony-related, of course, but cooking was my first love, and that’s what I’ll be focusing on here.
Also? getting back into my knitting. It’s been sitting next to my desk since Bronycon. Time to get back to that. I’m starting to re-enjoy being productive. Laundry’s going at the moment, as are the first load of dishes… it’s been a good day. Now I just need to figure out how I’m going to get to work the rest of the week.

Post-Apocalypse Zelda, Part 1
Something of a personal project, I’ve wanted to do a sort of Future Zelda for some time now, and school tossed this assignment my way: redesign an old video game.
I’ve always wondered what Hyrule would be like in some strange, parallel, bombed out universe, and this is my exploration into that land over the course of 7 weeks. This is part 1 of 2 parts, showing the various character and monster designs I decided to work with. Part 2 will contain more developmental pieces, including some of the environments and props.
For the most part, I tried to stay true to the already established universe, keeping in mind certain mechanics and plot points. Deciding on the enemy selection was difficult: there are many, many signature enemies in the games, and I would have liked to work with all of them. In the end I settled on enemies that had the most impact on me, either through nostalgia (like the Octorok) or gameplay experience (Redeads).
If you’ve got any questions, whether in general or on specific pieces, criticisms, or are curious on my thought process, feel free to drop me a message.
This has to be made right NOW!
This would be the first Zelda game I would actually enjoy playing since A Link To The Past.
Well here’s what I just realized I always wanted.

I’m considering re-designing my tumblr, with a focus on mainly cooking and hobbies, such as my knitting, and possible metal-work in the future.
As such, it’d consist of progress photos of my knitting work (since I’m considering acquiring a manual knitting machine, which would make things like scarves and blankets quite fast), as well as recipes, both healthy and not, and said metal work. We’re looking into building our own smelter and forge.
Would anyone be interested in my posts, were I to remake my tumblr in this way?
There needs to be more stuff like this… so ADORABLE!
