it was time that i made a new one


Hermit’s Cottage

I was going for a dilapidated, yet welcoming look to this place. I feel that the Hermit, at least in my game, is very much like Carl and Ellie from Up! This was their retirement plan but unfortunately only one of them made it here, but by golly they are gonna enjoy it for the both of them. 

Being older, I see the house falling into disrepair being so far out in the woods. But the hermit just covers up the holes with new paintings and brings in lots of flowers to get rid of the musky smell that has developed over time. The one thing that draws you closer is the smell of cookies baking, that the Hermit sends off to their grandkids each time they go into town for supplies. The Hermit really likes guests, but doesn’t go out of their way to get them, they rather be sort-after themselves. 

Redbubble Update!

It has been quite some time since I’ve put anything new into the bubble, but with Halloween being here and Redbubble having a 20% off sale at the moment, why not add some seasonal goodies! Some works have been taken down as a means to make room for some new stuff! I’ve gone and made a few items into shirts and added a bit more than this to the gallery! 

The shop will be updated from time to time as new projects and paintings come out, so make sure you hit that follow button on the shop to get notified right away! Anything related to the incubus/demon works will be temporary and will only stay up until the end of November! Grab ‘em while you can! SHOP LINK HERE.

As always, thank you all very much for your support and undying love! I appreciate everyone single one of you that has taken the time to like, reblog, send me asks and IM’s to see how I’m doing! It’s been such a good ride and hopefully, I continue to create content at your leisure!

I didn't screenshot it, but last night when d/c/riss a/rchive first posted m's snap of her & d in the chair, they definitely tagged it "m/iarren." Now that tag is gone though. Maybe it's not the first time they've made that "mistake" but it's the first time I noticed. Anyway we all know who's behind that blog so it's not really any surprise but it still made me laugh

That about the least shocking thing I have read in many days.  

Of course they did. And yes, we all suspect that blog that conveniently appeared to post that video from bottlerock of that loving moment is run by PR.

Team Idiocy (trying a new one today) is so pathetic.  I still do not understand when the priority switched from marketing D to marketing his fake ass relationship and pathetic beard.  

And yet people still believe everything they are fed.  

The second life of Silmarillion

So, after almost thirty years and several readings lated the copy of The Silmarillion that was my mum’s once decided it was time to retire. Namely, I ended up with book in several parts, so I decided to give it a try and make a new cover.

I started with book looking like this

I tore the pages one after another to get rid of the old glue, feeling quite barbaric to be true. It’s not something I usually do to any kind of book, least of all to one of my favorite. Still, I reordered the pages, as they were sometimes glued originally in the wrong order, and I ended with this:

Then came a bit of a bandage and a good amount of glue (yay for the tomatoes being a perfect support)

I chose to make a new hard cover, using a decorative fabric to which I pressed some fliseline to make it more stiff and to prevent the glue from soaking. The latter didn’t quite work the first time I tried, but then I succeeded in applying the glue the way it didn’t soak through the fabric. The fabric is green and copper, depending at which angle you look at it.

I only failed at one of the inside pages, but there’s not much I can do about it now.

Still, I like the result very much, as I have again a book in one piece, without pages and cover flying around.

Thank you! Yes, it was really hard to do it–
Please don’t think it was made in one go~ I had to spend a whole day in the  hospital in a room with nothing to do so that drawing was all I did during those hours haha~
Since the app I was using has a layer function I would draw it once, make a new layer, draw the same thing over the previous one and repeat until it ended up looking like that~ I must have done that x1000000000000000 times ^^u

Thanks~! I used something called “ibisPaintX”~


fangirl challenge: [1/7]  scenes/moments that made you cry → Up

“thanks for the adventure. now go have a new one.”

i just made a whole new batch of my absolutely beloved and favourite homemade deodorant cream. it’s completely natural, cheap as hell, easy to make, smells & feels like heaven, and works super well (24 hrs protection unless you do high physical activity). 

the only real downside is that you have to learn to be ok with rubbing cream into your underarms. that actually skeeved me out big time bc i have a fibro pain point under there (a really bad one, on both sides). so it took some getting used to for sure, but i will NEVER go back now, ever. i love it too damn much and i’m allergic to metal so…. can’t use the mass produced stuff

I still have two commissions to work on and my job is getting busier since open enrollment recently started. I also need to pay off a card so I’m planning to do as much overtime as I can handle. I really only have enough time to sketch at work once things slow down, which doesn’t happen until towards the end of the day, even then, sometimes the calls are still back to back.

I won’t even be able to get a lunch break the next couple days, I’m still being forced to do mandatory overtime.

On a more positive note, finally got a chance to buy new art supplies and made a payment on the laptop. I still have money set aside for a bigger payment too, I’m just waiting on one more check to kick in, not to mention my sister recently got hired to the same job as me and will still be working her part time job while she’s training, so this means I’ll have less financial obligations soon, freeing my checks up to save up more.

I’m currently in the thousands with my savings, my goal is $5000 to help me survive at least a semester of university. It’s difficult, but my goals are no longer that far out of my reach. It’s finally getting better, and I owe it to all my supporters, whether they are patrons or not. I probably wouldn’t have even been here to type this if it weren’t for you guys. I’m finally getting out of my comfort zone and making real progress.

Okay, what can I do?

So I’ve been in the ER side of things for about 7 months now and I feel like I’m fitting in pretty well, learning more each shift and developing good relations with other techs, nurses, and doctors.

One issue …

While I was in training I apparently rubbed the tech responsible for training me the wrong way. I made some comments about the nature of the job and she decided that I wasn’t worth training correctly. We had mediations with supervisors about the issues and each time I felt as though nothing had been resolved but being “the new kid” I felt it wasn’t my place to argue further. My first few weeks were hell. I cried and had panic attacks on my way to work every shift and I dreaded going back at the end of every shift. It got to the point this woman wouldnt even speak to me unless i directly asked a question (which was nearly impossible due to anxiety) and then i was met with sarcasm and attitude. I was eventually given a new trainer and a couple more weeks due to not having learned much of anything in the first place.

Forward to now …

I can’t work around this woman. We have at least one shift a week together and it takes every ounce of strength I have to walk past her and I have to mentally prepare myself if I’m in a situation that requires me to talk to her at all. I find my mind going directly to anger in her presence and not being able to focus when she is near me on anything but wanting her to go away! I still don’t really feel like I’m in a good place to speak to my supervisors about my feelings which may be true or may be my anxiety just fucking with me (I honestly have an issue separating the two) and I am terrified that should anything I say reach her and she realizes I said it that I’m in for even more hell not unlike what I went through during training.

Asking my fellows for some advice. Have you ever had am issue like this? How did you deal? I need some help. Thanks in advance. Xoxo

BinariiCodice’s 2-Year Anniversary!

(( And it falls exactly on a Munday! How convenient!

I can barely believe it’s been two years since I’ve made this account. I’m surprised I managed to keep this blog up for this long without deciding to move it to a new account. >.>;;

Anyway! I’d like to thank each one of you for interacting with me, reading my threads with others, and just following me in general. I’ve made quite a few good friends within the RP community, and words cannot describe how grateful I am for that alone. ))

finally hauled ass to draw bnha for the first time!! which happened to be on lil beansprout’s special day by sheer coincidence! happy birthday midoriya ♡

A Note on Reblogging (Your Own Fic/Art/Stuff/Etc.)

Look, here’s the deal with tumblr: it moves fast. A lot of people follow enough blogs that scrolling through one’s entire dash is impossible. I remember the days when I could wake up in the morning and scroll back to the last post I saw before bed. Sweet, summer child.

Here’s the other deal with tumblr: I see so much anxiety about reblogging one’s own stuff, be it art; analysis; fanfiction; hell, personal posts and replies. I have (and continue to feel deeply) that anxiety. Every time, my inner critic and I go through the same song and dance.

Critic: You look like you’re begging for notes/replies/reblogs. People will think you’re needy/full of yourself/have to be the center of attention. You already have a few notes, why do you need more? Other people have it worst than you. Ugh, you’re just clogging the dashes of your followers. If they wanted to read it, they’d have read it already.

Me: *ball of anxiety* You’re right. Wait, no you’re not. Wait, maybe you are. Wait, no—

I’d say it’s 50/50, even now, that I’ll reblog myself. 

And you know what? Fuck that. 

  • Not everyone can get through their dash in a sitting.
  • Timezones are a thing.
  • Work hours are a thing, also affected by timezones.
  • Life away from tumblr is a thing (what??? I know).

There are so many reasons a person might not see your fic/art/stuff the first time. Reblog it the next day. Reblog it a week from now. Hell, set up a schedule or a queue and have it reblog itself three months from now. Go back through old fics and reblog the ones you really liked; I guarantee you have followers who are new enough to have never seen it or who would like to reread it.

Be proud of the work you do.

Oh yeah, I felt that resistance from here.

Say it again. Out loud. Write it on a post-it note and stick it where you’ll see it.

Be proud of the work you do.

You wrote/made it for a reason. And yeah, part of that reason was probably to share it with other fans. Otherwise, why post at all? I know. Man, I get it. I’m cringing even writing that. The fucked-up “don’t show off” mentality runs deep, right?

Fuck that, too.

If you have followers who unfollow you because you’re reposting your stuff (and this is hard to prove, remember; maybe they quit tumblr, maybe their interests diverged from yours, whatever), who cares? Let them go. For everyone who leaves you, many will stay. And many will be happy to see that thing they missed because of work, life, sleeping. Especially if you follow a few points of tumblr/dash etiquette:

  • Use cuts/read mores for anything longer than a few hundred words (I tend to cut at about 400-500 words, though if something’s under about 700 I might leave it).
  • Reblog at reasonable intervals (day/evening, next day reblog, etc. Hourly might be a bit much ;D).
  • Use tags so people can filter appropriately.

Be proud of the work you do.

(Write it down. Yes, you. <3)
