May ProgBlog #1: maybe tomorrow

in #aer10 months ago

I have spent the last couple of weekends deciding that that particular weekend would be the one where I finished the wings.

I did not finish the wings because it was so incredibly tedious and boring that my brain shut down on numerous occasions and I wasted a lot of time playing stupid phone games when this gigantic lump of cuteness overdose wasn't destroying my posture and exacerbating old injuries.

She loves curling up behind me on my chair. The problem is she takes up this much space

so I'm precariously perched on the edge of the seat and I can't back up enough to compensate because her bed is an old single mattress that can't move any further from where it is.

It's been numerous Charles Darwin moments minus the poorly (which I am currently defining as actually sick rather than just tired/pain, but if that's included in the definition then that too I guess).

I don't know where this one came from, Sprat sent it over Discord

The feathering hell continues and I continue wondering if there was a better way to do it, if geonodes would have solved all my problems if only I was smart enough to get a handle on it, whether or not it's "right" and whether or not I actually care any more as long as it looks okay, and whether or not I'm going to seriously regret not caring now down the line and if it will come to bite me later.

The direction change towards the wrist is doing my head in. But still I persist because I am irrationally, unhealthily stubborn and pride will be the thing that kills me.

The things I do to be able to texture each feather individually if I need to.

It's still lighter than particle feathers and at least it looks kind of okay so there's that I suppose.

Aoife got a tiny bit of work done, going to have to do more work on the hair shading. I think I'm glad I didn't do more braids and flowers, I like colouring free flowing hair but hairstyles generally make me cry and I don't have a clue with flowers as I don't usually draw them.

Other than that it's just the usual adjusting and rejiggifying schedules and calendars again to try to keep everything some semblance of moving.

This post also appears on my blog.

Want a cameo character? If you interact frequently with me here (either on my posts or your posts or better yet both!) or on one of the linked Discord channels, all you have to do is let me know and tell me what you'd like :) Everything you need to know is (probably) here and if it isn't just ask (sorry the link goes offsite to my blog where the layout is how I want rather than the one here which is only here because the original one was).

Thanks for looking! ^_^

Ask me nicely if you want an upgoat/cute critter footer.


I shall be the Pink kettle that lurks in every corner. Also the Blender tutorial made by @kothy is noice!

At this point, i have witness the gradual progress of these feathers. All the way back into the tatoo era. Im sure of it, the feathers hold the secret to the universe. That's why its taking you so long!

Take your time, wise one!

Electric or stovetop? XP

The tattoo and the feathers are for different characters XD

I am just taking so long because I am taking so long. Pretty much have on day a week that I can go hard on it and on that day I don't always go hard (usually because something else came up that I had to do instead or I'm braindead so I waste too much time binge gaming or just working so slowly it both looks and feels like absolutely nothing at all got done despite hours having passed actually working).

Perhaps the feathers do hold the secret to the universe.

Love the old mutt !! As regards the wings they look rather spiffy to me....

She's a young mutt, she's only 1 XD

Thanks! I think they'll look alright when I'm done, now I'm hoping they'll rig okay x_x

Can't the giant lump of cuteness help with the wings? Maybe put a bluetooth mouse in a hamster ball and see what happens?

Once she figured out that she could push it and then chase it around the house, chaos is what would happen XD Especially when the ranga cat joins in (the tortie cat is unlikely to but may surprise us yet)

And I think less work would get done XD

I wasted a lot of time playing stupid phone games when this gigantic lump of cuteness overdose wasn't destroying my posture and exacerbating old injuries.

And here I thought the cuteness overdose was the phone games and then I saw what you meant. That chair sure has seen better days too ;<)

I guess the 'dog pillow' isn't as comfortable for you as you are for the dog.

Apparently you are lower in rank than her.

Tough life.

Sending you a big 🦖 hug

P.S. Give yourself a massage ( I heard you're good at that )

Well the phone games are kinda cute too I guess but they're also just stupid phone games.

Dog is very cute so she gets away with it XD Though no one can figure out how or why she's comfortable, curling up behind me doesn't look particularly comfortable from a human point of view but she must be because she keeps doing it?

Yeh the chair is getting very worn out, it's not uncomfortable yet and a new one isn't in my budget and I don't know when kerbside collection is (where this one came from, but it was a lot nicer looking when we got it, not sure why it was getting thrown out).

I am apparently half decent at massage, some of the spots on myself I have to do without contact though which takes a bit more concentration and I'm terrible about spending time doing that kind of stuff for myself even though I need to do it, if I have the time to be doing that I'd much rather be doing art x_x

You should find yourself a massage chair instead ;<)

( killing two birds with one stone )

My dog would make using a massage chair impossible XD

probably haha!
