Final art sheet for a custom mountain type Aequis design with osprey-inspired plumage, for @sergeanthax! I’m really pleased with the way the barring turned out on this one.

MBTI + The Mountain Goats songs (ie the types plus failing relationships/being sad)
ENFP: Amy aka Spent Gladiator 1
Make up magic spells / We wear them like protective shells / Land-mines on the battlefield / Find the one safe way / And stay alive
ENTP: Heretic Pride
I want to cry out / But I don’t scream and I don’t shout / And I feel so proud to be alive / And I feel so proud when the reckoning arrives
If we live to see the other side of this / I will remember your kiss / So do it with your mouth open / And take your foot off of the brake, for Christ’s sake!
We were the one thing in the galaxy God didn’t have his eyes on / 900 cc’s of raw, whining power, no outstanding warrants for my arrest / Hi diddle dee dee, goddamn, the pirate’s life for me
ENFJ: This Year
Trading swigs from a bottle, all bitter and clean / Locking eyes, holding hands / Twin high maintenance machines / I am going to make it through this year / If it kills me
ENTJ: The Mess Inside
We went down to New Orleans / One weekend in the spring / Looked hard for what we’d lost / It was painful to admit it but we couldn’t find a thing
ESFJ: Old College Try
Like a trashcan fire in a prison cell / Like the searchlights in the parking lots of hell / I will walk down to the end with you / If you will come all the way down with me
ESTJ: Fault Lines
Yeah, the house and the jewels, the Italian race car / They don’t make us feel better about who we are / I’ve got termites in the framework / So do you
The Best Ever Death Metal Band In Denton
When you punish a person for dreaming his dream / Don’t expect him to thank or forgive you / The best ever death metal band out of Denton / Will in time both outpace and outlive you / Hail Satan
And I can’t think of one thing in this whole wide blessed world / That’s more dangerous and frightening than you when you get bored // Good things never last / Bad things never die
ISFP: Spent Gladiator 2
Like the clock that ticks in Dresden / When the whole town’s been destroyed / Like the nagging flash of insight / You’re always desperate to avoid // Stay alive / Maybe spit some blood at the camera / Just stay alive / Stay forever alive
ISTP: Oceanographer’s Choice
I don’t know why it’s gotten harder to keep myself away / Thought I’d finally beat the feeling back, it all came back today / And then we fell down and we locked arms, we knocked the dresser over as we rolled across the floor
INFJ: Color in your Cheeks
And they came from Zimbabwe or from Soviet Georgia / East St. Louis or from Paris or they lived across the street / But they came, and when they finally made it here / It was the least we could do to make our welcome clear / Come on in, we haven’t slept for weeks / Drink some of this, it’ll put color in your cheeks
INTJ: Cry for Judas
But I am just a broken machine / And I do things that I don’t really mean // Unfurl the black velvet altar cloth / Draw a white chalk Baphomet / Mistreat your altar boys long enough / And this is what you get
Wet your finger, place it toward the wind / Feel disaster in the air / We are far too slow to outrun it now / But not too far gone to care
ISTJ: International Small Arms Traffic Blues
Our love is like the border between Greece and Albania / Trucks loaded down with weapons crossing over every night // There is a shortage in the blood supply / But there is no shortage of blood
Southern Pacific Mt-3 Class Mountain Type No. 4331. This photo shows this locomotive very early on in her career. She carries a 120-C-6 tender behind her and is still sporting the original Golden Glow headlight. Later in her career she will receive a Skyline Casing, and multiple bearing cross head guides.
