milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki mischevious)
Last night and today I've continued painting Pony!Loki. :3 I needed to get a few more coats of white on to have a good uniform colour. I'm happy with that, I might do a bit of sanding. He has eye colour now too!
Tomorrow I'm going to start on armour, which I'm really excited about. xD Also, I'll need to start on detail paint.

Pony!Loki sculpt painting continued
He's cool like Abbey, literally!

I watched the opening ceremony with Scottie last night! I missed the very beginning, so I didn't see the mistake with the snowflake rings. I thought a lot of the show was pretty cool though! Scottie and I both had issues with the camera work though, Scottie even more than me. Like, we wanted to see the far out view most of the time, because that's where you get the full effect. But randomly you'd swoop in close where it didn't look as impressive or interesting, or go out to somewhere that looked interesting but not where you wanted to be looking. Scottie really just wanted them to pick a good angle/distance and stay there.

My favorite part of the show was the War and Peace ballet. I'm in the middle of reading that book, so it was especially neat.
I had the most issues with the camera work there, because I'd be looking at the main dancers which is supposed to be the focal point, and then for some reason we'd be looking at the background dancers, and then we'd be in the nosebleed section for some reason... and I just wanted to watch the story.

I also really liked the inflated onion domes. That was really beautiful. Me and Scottie were impressed by the girl walking up the ramp of people. I also liked that she came back for the end!
Other favorite parts were the constellation athletes, and the roller skaters under them. It made me think of Van Gogh's Starry Night.

And then there was the dance number with the dancers with the lights? It so reminded me of this. xD

Considering all of the anti-gay stuff from Russia, I was rather surprised to hear tATu.

In other news today (for just a little bit so far since it's currently 2 am) is Tom Hiddleston's birthday!
Hiddles oooooo
I am endlessly amused that Hiddles is almost exactly Scottie's age. They are less than two weeks apart in age, born the same year, and are both Aquarius. I have to say that was a good year! xD

I heard on the radio on Friday that a nearby McDonalds was having a grand reopening, and they were going to have free cake and free samples today. Since I like cake, and I especially like free cake, Scottie brought me there. Now that I think about it, I'm rather amused that I ended up having cake today. xD

Your pony is looking great. You're so talented. (I love the Lala one in the back, too.)

I agree with you about the wonky camerawork during the Opening Ceremonies. One thing that bothered me about it (which could've been cool if it was better executed) was when they had the camera showing what it was like to enter the stadium with Team USA. All you could see was the back of the athlete's heads/sweaters, you couldn't see the size of the arena or the crowd or lights or any of those things. I would think someone walking in the procession would be looking all around...they should've just put a camera on some bobsledder's head or something lol.

I loved all those onion dome balloons & the use of animation projected onto the field. If we could just get ONE Olympic opening ceremony where the commentators didn't feel the need to flap their yaps EVERY SINGLE SECOND, I'd be happy (seriously, do they get paid by the word??? and I know we're "dumb Amurricans" but it's really not necessary to give us the backstory & factoids on EVERY LITTLE THING) /rant

Thank you! :3 I think it's fun when my other sculpts end up in my pictures. x3

I think I missed the stadium entry! But I can totally see what you mean, I would have wanted to see a more interactive view! I'd be looking around I'm sure if I was there!
I'm glad we're not the only ones who thought the camerawork was weird. n_n'

The projected animation was really neat! I agree with you too about the commenters, Scottie had actually commented that he wished that they'd stop with the non-stop chatter while we were watching! You're totally not alone in that frustration. xD
