Progress

Chugging along

I just finished a stream where I recorded five stories and wrote a piece of music. I'm doing well. Tomorrow, I publish another episode of Inter-Mission for my potentially-two listeners.

It starts with one. It grows from there. Sooner or later, someone is going to do animations featuring their favourite bits.

Tuesday, I shall be editing a new episode of Inter-Mission, and since I'll probably be rat-faced by Thursday, I might not stream at all. It's pretty close to Xmas by then. I may not have a voice by then. Since I'll be ahead of schedule, I might even fit some games in. Whee.

That could be fun :D

I only really play two games - WoW and Minecraft. It'll depend on my mood. Everything I do depends on my mood.

Speaking of moods... Mayhem's decided to teach himself how to paint minis and shall be taking his own sweet time with it. He doth not wish for my wisdom. Darnit.

I'll still have to pack up all the mini painting stuff before the yule party. Because we'll need the table clear and all that jazz.

As for good moods, Team Trees is less than three hundred thousand dollars from their twenty million target! WOO!

For now, though, I continue to entertain...

And now the end is near...

I've almost finished painting the Kobold, kiddies. That means I'm nearly done with mini painting. At least until such time as I get my Bugbear printed and I paint that one. Or until such time as the other players in my current game want representation. OR until such time as I end up teaching my mini knowledge to a bunch of interested peeps who've somehow roped me into this noise.

...I know how these things go and so do you. Nothing is

Completion!

My mini is finished and just awaiting some proper varnish. Because I want some matte effects to stay matte and some shiny bits to stay shiny post varnish. Heck, he might not need varnish at all. I dunno. Either way, he's looking good. I should take pictures.

I've drybrushed the Kobold's bow and arrow, and I'll be doing some details on the feathers and arrow-tip... and possibly the one buckle I could identify on his leathers. Once all that's done, I'll hit

Getting there by bits

I've been drybrushing my dude and I put in his eye. A procedure which required retouching his guyliner for each colour applied.

I want to re-enforce my dude's eyebrows with a little dotpainting, and also add a few highlights on all that lovely blue skin. He's almost finished. I'm also working on a Kobold for shits and giggles. Little dude is looking SUPER dark right now. He needs highlights.

I have nothing to rant about this week, so my followers on Wordpress

I've got this... I think...

So now I have a pattern of operations for mini-painting, which definitely includes making sure the kitties are fed before I sit down to do any detail.

All that's left at this stage is a HELL of a lot of dotpainting and touch-ups on any spill-over. Since I've been really careful this time, that's not a lot of touch-ups.

Now I really have to investigate washes at the Warhammer Shoppe in Chermside. Wheee...

But not until tomorrow, when the last coats of

Crisis... not over yet

Pippi has had a reaction to her stitches/surgery because she's a gadabout little acrobat with a bad dose of the Zoomies(tm). So they're leaving the stitches in until Saturday, and she's staying locked in the laundry during the nights when there's nobody to supervise her.

Getting stressed about things just encourages her to be more Zoomy, so I purposely chilled and did a bit of painting.

Things I have learned:

  • DIY washes don't really work on faces
  • Drybrushing with plain

A Lot of Unriddling

So. I tried and failed to make a new map in Roll20. I'm currently seeking help on that one.

I'm trying to at least build some interlinked text in WorldAnvil, with varying degrees of success. Last night, I had a folder with subfolders viewable to anyone. Today... I just have that first page and have to work a little harder to link everything. I'll muddle around with it until I hit Frustration.

I'm making small progress, anyway.

I might even trash some

Approaching Normal

I have both sets of braining meds! Interestingly, the ones that had to wait for stock beat out the ones that had to cross the Pacific Oceans to get to me.

The cat flap is repaired with a qualifier attached in the flavour of "for now".

We are going to need a new one. But it's at a state of being in which it can do it's job. For now.

My car has been surrendered to the mechanics and I will find

Shenanigans!

So. I ordered my Ashwagandha, but... the place I ordered it from is out of stock.

I have to wait a WEEK to brain properly again. At minimum.

On the plus side, a parcel from the states arrived and I'm busily attempting to figure out all of the assorted nonsense within. The cat toys have been distributed to my little fluffy friends. Everything else is a matter of my int rolls at the time.

Not looking good on that count for next

Nibbling to Death

I got another quarter of Inter-Mission done and managed to record five more stories for the next one. Yay.

All because I went to sleep long about 5PM and was out of it until 3AM.

Little kitties were wont to make pest of themselves, too. I stood firm and didn't feed them until it was five. I had to lock them out of the room because they were wont to trample my keyboards and get in my way and all that nonsense.

So close!

I have one post waiting for bolts. One more post waiting to be situated that needs some judicious grinding to get it to fit. Alas, Mayhem was silly enough to wear bare feet on the building site yesterday, so we need him to remember his firkin boots, this time around.

It's so close to the next step. Even with muddy ground.

I just want this DONE, dangit.

Speaking of getting things done, I've been able to get 1K words into Kingdom of

Challenge #02365-F175: Motivational Inspiration

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iYYRH4apXDo -- Anon Guest

It was vaguely conical, and smaller than the most popular cars of the late Terran Twentieth Century. This was a vessel designed to get three Humans back to their planet after a long and perilous journey to truly hostile territory. There was just enough room for three Humans and all the samples they had gathered while they were up there.

What was more worrying was the landing craft for their missions to

Challenge #02363-F173: The Ego Won't Be Landing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDs5Abg0M9A -- AmberFox

There is, in fact, a Starman waiting in the sky. He is not leaning back on his radio, as the song once said, but is seated comfortably in a red roadster, wearing a stylish spacesuit. He posed so that he could, with a glance, read the dashboard display that says, Don't Panic!

He does not say anything. He does not do anything. That's because he is, in fact, a dummy. An effigy of

Around and round I go...

The family and I got the frame... mostly up. There's still a lot of jiggery-pokery involved, including the assembly of the front door to the little place.

It's only now that I realise that the kitty enclosure is going to be firkin huge and Kitty is truly, truly going to be spoiled. It's a room that's only a smidge smaller than the dorm room my love used to live in when they were in uni. For a human, that's criminally small. For
