More things I have been working on!

((OOC: Helloooo. It meee.))

((Sooo this is just a little life-update. My laptop is still broken, but my roommate Nathan has been letting me use his while he’s at work. And I got fired. And I’ve applied for Employment Insurance. And I’ve been watching a lot of Jane The Virgin and rocking back and forth while muttering to myself. But I have an interview at a store tomorrow! And I may well be moving. So things are a bit scattered on my end at the moment, so I want to apologize for being so absent. I’m planning on doing more RP stuff once my life is a bit more stable! To the people who’ve been asking where I am and when I’m going to play Molly again, I promise, the time is very nearly upon us.  :} ))

i saw a post the other day that said ‘stop weighing people’s value by how much revenue they generate’ and agreed, and then i just stopped for a moment. because wow, i’ve come a long way? i mean, it’s not the same exactly, but when i was in school i hardcore believed that my worth as an individual was pretty much exclusively derived from my academic performance. i wasn’t quite so harsh on the people around me in terms of academics? but that was mostly because they all had other skills to boost their 'value’. like maybe they were good at sports, or could play an instrument, or were very beautiful, or something. i didn’t have those - or at least i didn’t believe i had those - so i just kept sinking my entire concept of self into the quality of my academic 'product’. it took a catastrophic mental breakdown to put the first serious dent in that, and going on four years gone from it i realize i’ve definitely grown into a healthier person all around? but that post gave me an odd little shock, reading it and agreeing to it without a voice in the back of my head saying except you. you’re worthless unless you’re producing results. i guess it’s a little pathetic, that my window of improvement has a benchmark labeled 'not constantly evaluating your objective worth on a scale of Garbage to Adequate’ - like, that seems like such a low bar to meet? - and it took me a long time to get here, but… i’m a little proud of myself, for that. i feel… good. generally, all-around baseline good. somehow despite everything that’s happening right now, and even despite occasional lapses, i’m doing okay? and i’m proud of that.

Todd: I don’t know how we’re gonna catch this guy. Like, not without one of us going undercover as a prostitute.

Dirk and Jake: Fiiiiiiiine, I’ll do it.

Todd: nO.

Dirk and Jake: Why, what’s wrong with my body?

Ink/Dirktober day 18- yes, I AM working on writing this crossover at the moment. But the plot ran away from me and I’ve been procrastinating on more bitesized things. For now, have this- and apologies for my inability to draw mah boy Jake Peralta right <3

Okay I understand the fans are being unreasonable and you have had enough. However, ever since then you have been acting really cold forward your followers who simply want to ask your opinion on other things that are not the fictional ship and what not. That is not okay. I love you, I live your work, but I am not living your 10 year old attitude. (Whatever my username is because I dont remember) out.

I understand your point of view
However I’ve stated many times on my blog that I have an FAQ page with lots of questions that have been asked over and over

Literally 10 posts ago I stated that I ain’t doing much more Undertale and I even made a video however ‘fans’ continue to bombard me with questions about it

I haven’t really acted coldly to anyone who asked about my opinion on anything else so I’d like to see what you mean by that but regardless

I act coldly because that’s how I’m treated

I beleive in the idea of ‘If people can’t be bothering finding out what you’ve already been asked then I shouldn’t bother giving a proper answer’

That’s my stance but feel free to discuss with me I love talking to people with different views and opinions!

BTS Reaction to You Losing Your Parents (and Having to Raise Your Baby Sibling)

LaBrea 3d Model, Early Progress

Working up a 3d model of LaBrea for 3d printing and possible animation purposes. I’ve been making some design tweaks as I go, particularly in the upscaling of the hands and feet, and more animal-like hands. 

I’m still working on the face shape. I don’t have much experience with this particular mid-point on the anthropomorphism scale (I’m normally more of a “slap animal head on there, make slightly cartoony’ TMNTish school), so its trickier than other elements.

You can’t see from that angle, but she has a stubby little smilodon tail. The tar effects will be the last thing done, especially since I have no idea how I’m going to execute them.

I’ve been struggling with my social media presence lately. By that I mean I don’t know who I want to be on the internet. Obviously I want to be myself but I also don’t want to just shout into an empty void and it’s starting to take its toll.⠀

Do I share the image of a super popular book so my account receives a little attention? Do I just post whatever and hope for the best? I’d love to do the latter, to just share whatever and have it work the same as when I post more popular/recognizable stuff but that doesn’t happen and it kind of sucks.⠀

I don’t know, I’ve been questioning why I bother with social media sometimes. It stresses me out more often than not. I tend to just do my own thing but it’s been a struggle. I think the community as a whole (on here, on instagram, on twitter, etc) is in a bit of turmoil lately for all sorts of reasons and I’ve lost that spark, that desire, to put the effort in and stick around when I could be doing a million other things. Think I’m just in one massive slump. Blogging, reading, the whole deal.⠀

Alright, end… whatever that was. Just needed to vent.⠀

How are y'all doing? Anything exciting happening with you?

it’s the eighth anniversary of dan and phil meeting each other in person. they look so gorgeously happy and giggly in their new video with their friends and the new game that they’ve created. they’ve done so much in their time together, more than i’m sure anyone ever dreamed. they’ve helped me through so much and i may not know them, but i cannot express how happy i am that they exist: that they found each other, that they decided to do what they do, that the universe decided to let things work out just right so that they could be who they are now, together, and i could be here to watch them as they grow. this is basically just a ramble and i know it probably sounds crazy or doesn’t make sense, but there have been countless times where i have felt sad (and i say “sad” to keep myself from diving into a description of my depression) and i have watched a dan and phil video, and it cheered me up. they never fail to make me laugh and smile. i will never be able to thank them, and the universe, enough for that.

i need help soooo my daddy is a switch but hes mainly in daddy mode when he talks to me but 2 days ago hes little side came out and he asked me if i could be a switch and be his mommy and i felt bad bc i couldnt do that for him bc it makes me uncomfortable i felt after that things havent been tooo easy or normal since then like i feel like theres something weird going on like hes messages are shorter and hes more saying “oh yeah” and “i guess” and very vage stuff like that and idk what to do

It just sounds like you really upset him…. I’m not trying to be mean, I’m sorry. It may have taken a lot of courage for him to ask that, and he probably feels embarrassed that you didn’t want to. If you really want the relationship to work, ask him to let you ease into becoming a switch. Don’t just jump into it. Try to be a little flexible for him every once in a while.
I know from experience how sudden and confusing this is, but once you know their little side, you want it to come out more. It was the most difficult thing for my daddy to tell me he was a switch, I know how hard that is for them.
Since your daddy mostly wants to be a daddy, occasionally switching shouldn’t be too hard once you get the feel for it. If it is, think about getting a babysitter for when he feels small and you can’t help him. You can’t do everything.

I have rallied since yesterday.

It took all day, but I’ve started writing my next script and have decided that I just don’t have time to waste feeling bad because my teacher is a problem. I still have learning to do, work to do, and opportunities to create for myself no matter what she does.

It wasn’t until this point in my self-care that my creativity returned to me.

I got pissed that I hadn’t been able to find my creative voice since yesterday and I realized that that was bullshit and that I wasn’t going to let little itty-bitty bad review slow me down. 

Because you know what? Tumblr has taught me how to deal with a bad review:

Do it more and louder the next time. Write the thing you love even if the assholes in the back are throwing rotten fruit. Or fecal material. Or bad grades.

Ok, so this isn’t graded, per se, but same same.

She better get used to me because I’m not going away and I know I have something to say that’s important whether she likes how I do it or not.

When she can offer me criticism that helps me realize my vision, I’ll listen. But I’m not going to take any more bullshit about fucking dissolves as if that’s the only thing about my work she can figure out how to comment on. She better up her game. Because I’m bringing it.

And you know what? Yesterday I was here

before class and I got about an hour to write my Rushbelle because I was early after finishing and errand. I have missed fic’ing so much, it felt like a hit off a drug (I’m guessing since I don’t know these things first hand). So I might just go early next week too, so I can do that again. You’ll get your Rushbelle eventually. Because I need it.

So there.

So I wanted to post this earlier but I love to pack at the last minute lol
Tomorrow is my birthday! And I’m flying back to my hometown tonight! After working out this morning, I took a shower, made breakfast, ironed my work clothes, and then tried doing some laundry lol I suppose some of these things could have been done last night but I just love to procrastinate!
But on the brightside, I got 3 miles and 5 minutes of planks done for my team. I’ll try to do more planks after work or once I get home!

2020

I decided the deadline for my comic thing is 2020. it’s a bit optimistic but I think that’s enough time for production if I just work in passes.
Hardcore PDCA type stuff. Lots of swirly processes.

I’ve noticed things without deadlines don’t get made.
If the deadlines are too tight the quality suffers, but if they’re too long the final result almost has to justify the means.

Either way it usually always gets made, unless it’s intentionally canned for whatever reason. 

I figured since I’m working by myself,  it’s never gonna 100% match the quality I’m looking for. The goal is just to get it as close as possible to that ideal, within the deadline. Ideally, I want to smash every milestone I set for myself so i can have a lot more time to polish things up near the end.

Also I’ve been sick. It happens a lot tbh, just gotta work through it and try not to die lmao you only live once. be me. carpe diem, la vida loca, etc. etc.

I’ll post art when i get better.

So its been a while sense i’ve drawn fanart of dghda obviously drawn cause the new season came out ayye
Also added onto my redd bubble
https://www.redbubble.com/people/dadknives/works/28530571-bart-curlish?asc=u……I have a question for yall on the redbubble thing do you guys want mildly messy more “cute” fanart from me or would you rather me try more of a less cute mess style?

The REPUTATION era

reputation is the 6th studio album from singer/songwriter Taylor Swift. It is set to be released on November 10th, 2017.

Idris Elba wants a bigger role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

During a recent interview in London, where Elba’s finishing up the editing on Yardie, a gangster flick about Jamaican drug runners set in the ‘70s that marks his debut as a director, the actor says, “I like that I have a little part in Thor. I’m neither movie star or day player. It allows me to do other things I love.” But he continues: “The last one [Ragnarok] was fun. The others weren’t fun. They’re work. But on this one, Taika [Waititi, the director] was great.”

Elba pauses for a beat, weighing whether he should say what he wants to say next. Then he says it. “I wish I was more present in the Marvel family. I like what I have, but I also wish that I had a bigger character in the Marvel universe.” Elba says that he’s never been approached to play anyone but Heimdall, including a role in the upcoming Black Panther film – or any of the studio’s other superhero properties. But he also says he doesn’t want to sound like he’s moaning about it, either. “It’s been great, but I kinda think I need a bit more. I want to be a superhero. I like the idea of that.”

 so some fun facts about working in carpentry (from someone in the field) that probably no one wants but could be fun for writing about julia and mags with:

  • it is so so important to maintain a positive relationship with your clients and that’s probably why mags is so proud of his rustic hospitality and wants to use it at every corner because your relationships and reputation is half the job
  • for one you get returning clients and tends to be the best and most reliable source of income and you also usually will end up getting gifts from them too which is, sweet
  • if they’re doing pretty well off during a year i’m almost certain that they offer discounts for their services for the poorer members of raven’s roost, mangus in particular has a “doggy discount” that if they own a dog and they let it work with him they get a good discount
  • both of them (+plus stephen) are probably ambidextrous to a degree as when working on repeat projects, you tend to get really tired and sore and continue working until that arm gives out and then switch to the other to be able to continue working
  • going with that, you get paid by commission or project usually and so hypothetically you could pick up as many as possible (or as many as the union will allow) and probably will do that a couple times and you could literally blow out your entire body but be set for the year in a couple weeks
  • going with the stress on the body, the physical labor definitely means that they have bad knees and probably a bad arm as well not to mention if there is a lot of heavy lifting you can get multiple hairpin fractures along your spine and legs causing intense pain that cannot be treated 
  • also if they’re working with saws (which i’m pretty sure trav did say were in the pocket workshop) then i have no idea why mags reacted so badly to losing a finger because everyone i have ever worked with has or has almost cut off their finger once a week
  • also you get a very high tolerance for pain (which probably helps mags as being a sword for hirer)  like i have literally sliced my entire forearm open and just wrapped it up and continued working
  • since raven’s roost has a carpentry district, that most likely means that they have a lumber sister town that provides all of the resources
  • and again, going with the importance of rustic hospitality, if you’re friends with the lumber providers then you will get first pick on the quality wood and quality literally will save you days of work
  • if there’s a bad harvest one year then it will fucking suck because people don’t stop needing furniture or buildings and you as the carpenter have to pick up the slack for the shitty warped wood and most projects will take about double the time
  • woodworking is a skill trade and has to be learned over years so most likely by the time mags came along julia was already extremely skilled and is able to do commissions and bids on her own and has her own reputation in ravens roost (which…tbh mags could have very well apprenticed under her) 
  • it is extremely hard to go from apprenticing one carpenter to another because even the basics get muddled with your own style to the point where most people measure in different ways and cutting something wrong (especially cutting it short) will waste so much material thus mags being brand new to apprenticing under stephen probably takes years while jules just laughs each time he fucks up a leg of a chair
