Magic Storyline: “Project Lightning Bug” by Doug Beyer

Ral Zarek has a problem involving his extravagantly smart dragon guildmaster (and Niv-Mizzet has a card in Modern Masters 2015–I assert that that counts as a thematic tie-in!). It seems Ral’s only solution might be contacting Jace Beleren – and not just because he’s the Living Guildpact. Check out this week’s story, “Project Lightning Bug” by yours truly!

3D Low Poly illustrations by Era

A collaboration between Era and I! (Monstersauce is our new collaboration name *-*)

As dessert lovers, this was a super fun project and also the cause of many late night cravings. We have completely different styles, so this was a kind of experiment to see what would happen if we were to both draw the same things! The interesting thing is, a lot of them actually turned out quite similar :P

There’s a few copies left, if you’re interested check it out on etsy


ALRIGHT SO been working on this for the past four hours or so and been having a buncha fun with it!

That’s the rough explanation. PSU means power supply. Basically I used a buncha pre-existing code and a music file, hooked up some old floppy drives to a programmable circuit board, and alas:

dat 4am hair

i love staying up late to do projects

Hey! So! I have an idea for an ongoing art project that lets me involve you guys (because I love collabs and things that involve other people).

Yesterday I wanted to work on environments, so I drew these things based on an outfit I was wearing.

And of course I want to make more like this and using outfit-based color palettes is fun. So, that gave me an idea! You are all beautiful people who inspire me and because I love to involve people in my projects, I would absolutely love for you to post selfies of yourselves wearing a favorite outfit and tag me in it! But only if you want to. Or if you have an older selfie that you think would make a fun color palette, show it to me! And there’s no rush- I hope to make this last a while so I don’t need them all tonight or anything. You show your beautiful self whenever you feel like it.

Art is more fun for me when others can participate in the creative process and it’s easier to stay motivated when I’m having fun, so you’d actually be helping me out a lot. Plus, you get an environment designed around you! Yay!

(oh, but disclaimer: I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to do one for absolutely everyone but I will try!!)


maysketchaday 27!

bananimator asked me if i could help with a character design for a project. Here it is! It was super fun to work on this, hope you like it! Also make sure to check and follow her stuff!

anonymous asked:

It would be interesting to see how we Harry Potter fans with BPD all identify ourselves as associated with which House! Maybe we could have a Poll? (Sorry, lots of brain fog. I hope I was clear enough with what I was trying to say! Sorry!!)

That would be a fun project to do, and I’ll see if Kenzie would like to make another poll soon, perhaps with the secondary houses included as well. Like I’m a Slytherin/Hufflepuff cusp, so that would be the best option for me.



Hello all. 

So, I drew this for The Beano a year or so ago for this interactive art ‘thing’ they did online. It was a really fun project as Its Beanotown featuring a lot of old and new Beano characters painted in the style of the great fine artist Lowry.

I realised that I haven’t really shown it to anyone before (unless you saw it on the Beano micro-site last year) So here it is…..

Much Love


Project Management Proverbs

If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.If you fail to plan you are planning to fail.If you don’t attack the risks, the risks will attack you.A little risk management saves a lot of fan cleaning.The sooner you get behind schedule, the more time you have to make it up.A badly planned project will take three times longer than expected - a well planned project only twice as long as expected.If you can keep your head while all about you are losing theirs, you haven’t understood the plan.When all’s said and done a lot more is said than done.If at first you don’t succeed, remove all evidence you ever tried.Never put off until tomorrow what you can leave until the day after.Feather and down are padding - changes and contingencies will be real events.There are no good project managers - only lucky ones.The more you plan the luckier you get.It takes one woman nine months to have a baby. It cannot be done in one month by impregnating nine women (although it is more fun trying). *

The same work under the same conditions will be estimated differently by ten different estimators or by one estimator at ten different times.

Any project can be estimated accurately (once it’s completed).

The most valuable and least used WORD in a project manager’s vocabulary is “NO”.

The most valuable and least used PHRASE in a project manager’s vocabulary is “I don’t know”.

Nothing is impossible for the person who doesn’t have to do it.

You can con a sucker into committing to an impossible deadline, but you cannot con him into meeting it.

At the heart of every large project is a small project trying to get out.

If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.

The more desperate the situation the more optimistic the situatee.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it probably is a duck.

Too few people on a project can’t solve the problems - too many create more problems than they solve.

A problem shared is a buck passed.

A change freeze is like the abominable snowman: it is a myth and would anyway melt when heat is applied.

A user will tell you anything you ask about, but nothing more.

A user is somebody who tells you what they want the day you give them what they asked for.

Right answers to wrong questions are just as wrong as wrong answers to right questions.

Of several possible interpretations of a communication, the least convenient is the correct one.

What you don’t know hurts you.

The conditions attached to a promise are forgotten, only the promise is remembered.

There’s never enough time to do it right first time but there’s always enough time to go back and do it again.

I know that you believe that you understand what you think I said but I am not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant.

Estimators do it in groups - bottom up and top down.

Good estimators aren’t modest: if it’s huge they say so.

The sooner you begin coding the later you finish.

Anything that can be changed will be changed until there is no time left to change anything.

If project content is allowed to change freely the rate of change will exceed the rate of progress.

Change is inevitable - except from vending machines.

The person who says it will take the longest and cost the most is the only one with a clue how to do the job.

Difficult projects are easy, impossible projects are difficult, miracles are a little trickier.

If you don’t plan, it doesn’t work. If you do plan, it doesn’t work either. Why plan!

The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of meeting the date is forgotten.

If you’re 6 months late on a milestone due next week but nevertheless really believe you can make it, you’re a project manager.

A verbal contract isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.

Super-duper fun character sketch for a project that ended up going in a bit of a different direction. Still kind of like this guy though, so I figured I’d introduce him to Instagram. 😜✏️✒️ #doodle #sketch #sketchbook #drawing #ink #skateboard #skater #skateboarding #pencil #micron #sharpie #illustration #graphicdesign #art #artwork

not gonna be posting this again but just wanted to make a post for awareness: working on a fun lil side project of full band pop songs, not sure what songs will make it and won’t, so i made a soundcloud with demos and ideas of things that might make the final product. check it if you want, if not new lvl up stuff will come soon enough ;)

I love your tumblr header! I would so have those in my house if I knew where to get them 😂 but anyway, hey, wanna talk?


I just found that pic here on tumblr but Ive done a fair amount of Mason Jar DIY projects this past year…theyre really fun. Theyre normally really cheap at yard sales (or goodwill), buying them in bulk at Menards or Target in the canning jar area is the next best bet. They can also be found at places like michaels, joanne fabrics or any other art supplies store but may be more expensive. 

I’d love to!

touchfeeltastelove asked:

Okay, I have to ask why did you add fan characters in the first place? Did you not expect BCB to get this big and those were friends of yours or what? This seems to keep coming up and I keep wondering why you didn't take the characters out years ago

Veronica: You kinda answered your own question! BCB was literally a “for fun” project back in 2006 so I did whatever I wanted back then, without thinking much about the repercussions of what I chose to do. That involved including friends and fans’ own characters.

SOON ENOUGH some people felt entitled that their character wasn’t included in a chapter that featured another friend’s fan character and so on and after a lot of little dramas I decided it was a terrible idea that I’d have to walk back as much as I could. For this reason the fancharacters (with a small number of exceptions) are gone from volume two onwards. The fan character community kinda shot itself in the foot when it comes to getting my approval, I didn’t just randomly snap one day!

I hate when fan character questions get asked because it always seems like that means I get bombarded with many more and it just makes my dislike of them even stronger than ever hahahahahahaha


😁 It was so crazy to see myself on TV!! Thank you to @botchedtv @pinupgirlclothing @whatkatiediduk and @dorismayday this was such a fun project! ❤️ #botched #botchedtv #eonline #pinupgirlclothing #whatkatiedid #wkd #dorismayday #perfect #botchedpresentsperfect #ashleeta


“It’s daylight, so I improvised”

Aaahh just finished cassandrapentagasp‘s commission! Cass and her inquisitor, Gate, being fluffy! This was kinda hard for me and took me a couple of tries just because I’m not familiar with the characters but Brynn was hella rad at explaining it all for me!

Sory for the stars???? I’m literally the worst at stars, apparently. Also I laughed at the idea of Gate holding a really small poem book with his already larger hands so here we are.

THANKS FOR GIVING ME A FUN PROJECT and I’ll hand deliver it to you whenever works best! <3
