So SMASH! happened, picked up the awesome sparkly Eeveelutions from GreyRadian
and won myself a Mokona
I did manage to get a Saber 600 special edition nendoroid
I did also pre-order her when she came on sale, but I really wanted her! Picked up a Ditto Flareon and some nice new marker paper to try out.
Was a tiring day, but fun
Whilst my Pokemon Go is a little temperamental still managed to pop a lucky egg and get cracking on the pidgey farming, then picked up a Snorlax when visiting my parents for dinner (he was hiding in their front yard
Pikachu visited my desk at work today :score:
I'm trying out he new paper, yet another OC playing Pokemon Go, but since I named my Flareon after him, he's holding one

7th August 2016- news on art trade swap
So I did indicate that I was going to do an Art Trade swap in mid-July, but I'm changing roles within my job and things are not looking like I will have the opportunity to organise this. Whilst it's not entirely off the table, the idea is now underneath a large pile off stuff that needs to be done first.
Sorry if you were keenly anticipating this, just things are changing and hopefully for the better too My room is a complete mess, really should put some of this stuff away

Wow so Pokemon Go dropped and I can hardly ever login during the day, but hey that's cool, my office is in the middle of no where
Went down to the bottom of Australia, saw some rocks in the ocean, got cold, but didn't care; couldn't play Pokemon, did care; saw a 'bunyip', played some retro games, played some Indie games, bought stuff, put sticker on my phone, bought more stuff, watched Sonic speed runs, played some more retro games then came home played 'Trials of Tatooine' (twice cause zomg
20th June 2016Supanova Sydney
was fun, but exhausting, by the time you've walked (or shuffled) to all the stalls it's been hours! Picked up another cheerleader outfit for my Nendos, Saitama is using it at the moment
Have been slack on art works lately (ran out of my backlog
) cause I had to make a wedding outfit for a wedding that is coming up.
Also trying a new technique to bring to life three of my dried up Copics (they seem to have had too much ink and I need to unclog them). Hopefully this time it works. They came with too much ink and I didn't use them too often and that happened, so if one of your new ones is blotching, remove the excess ink before putting them in your collection!

Nendo dressups are dangerous, but so much fun!
Haikyu!! Banpresto trading figures are really quite good, I've now got quite the little collection of them happening. Nishinoya turned up so now he's playing with Hinata and Kageyama.
I need to re-organise the display cabinet cause i have too many figures to fit nicely, it's getting crowded
20th may 2016
Yay! Finally made the chibi I've been meaning to for a long while now. Then I forgot to add the stroke and had to rush to get that done too
Got a crap ton of figures to shoot, bunch of OC ideas and I want to reboot my Siblings Project too!
And I need to take a photo of my Obi Wan costume before putting it away to make a wedding outfit!
14th May 2016
ONE PUUNNNNNNNCH! Finally made the Global board and a 100% in AudioShield on my fav combo!
I thought I stuffed it again, but I did it this time
I really love playing AudioShield, Tsuritama OP is my new fav at the moment, it is just a really fun song to play
Fuuma Week starts tomorrow, I really should get to finishing mine
Revenge of the 5thHappy Star Wars Day!
I bought a fitness tracker recently, but it has some nifty little smart watch features like switching on my music, showing me the weather and notifications which is nifty.
Ended up also taking some shots of Ronin Boba Fett, be on the lookout for them
Thank you to sealandangel
for the b'day gifts!
18th April 2016
So I had a birthday and received lots of Star Wars themed gifts (helps the blu-ray came out) including a Ninetendo 64 with Pod Racer cartridge
. I also trekked up to Sydney and wandered around the city for two days and bought a lot of random and different things, including a set of Clow Cards
and some figures.
Amongst my purchases were some new art supplies with two new Copics, some refill inks, new 000 W&N Round, Flesh and a replacement Warm Grey PITT markers, some Polychromos and Prismas (my first Prismas actually
I grabbed a couple of blind boxes and managed to get the two I wanted, I really wanted the Wedding set, but mainly the grey suit and that's what I got. The little loin cloth is adorable, I'm not sure who I should pick on first with it, perhaps Date Masamune
I also grabbed some fake grass and fake model trees cause they were there and they looked interesting. I want to go buy some balsa wood and make some little tables and what not.
In other news we have a Vive and have been playing that for the past couple of weekends. AudioShield is my favourite with 'THE HERO!!' being my fave song to play. In The Labs we've named the robot dog Genos, Genos adores me cause I play fetch with him.
My real cat gets a bit confused by the whole thing, but he's getting used to it
I have plans to start going through my backlog of figures to photograph, doesn't help that I picked up Daiki, Lev, Toudo and Touya figures as well. I'm hoping my Petite Fate Stay figures arrive this week, I need Lancer
Also have a bit of a backlog of the 'Old Faves Re-draw' series, there are 12 in total and that fills up the moleskine, then I was thinking of rebooting my abandoned 'Siblings' project in a new one (that's paper is no where near as yellow which is a relief).
Noiz in his new suit I wish people wouldn't bitch when they don't follow group rules and I'm telling them. Group rules state I can reject without notification, I'm trying to be nice and get O.o responses. Pisses me off, read the fricking rules!
.:Tips of the Week:.
Mixing mediums can be a lot of fun.
Mixing Media: Pencils work great after
Copics, as the pencils leave a layer on top of the paper instead of soaking into it and can block the Copic as a result or give splotchy Copic coverage
Too much pencil leaves a very distinct pencil texture that may or may not be desirable
Pencils are good for areas (especially on a soaking paper) that the marker isn't giving enough definition to
Achieving a goal is a rewarding accomplishmentPrevious Tips
