Random chibi comic?

I'm tired, but I wanted to play around with my tablet some more. Here's what I drew while I was watching Chopped and Suburgatory tonight. xD Suburgatory was cute btw, though I sort of flailed at the dentist bit eeew (mostly because I don't like the dentist though).

Time for bed!

Wait a minute that's not sleeping! But it's cute carry on~

Loki reading
I hope that your reasons for having books picked for you to read are better than mine midgardian.

Who was your buddy for the month? [livejournal.com profile] witchery
What books did they select for you to read? 1. Dracula and 2. In the Woods
What did you read? I only had time to read Dracula (I got caught up reading Storm of Swords! n_n'')
Tell us about it:
DraculaDracula by Bram Stoker

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I do enjoy this sort of book, though I think that it went on a bit longer than necessary. I was much more caught up in the beginning of the book, but the second half seemed to stall, and nothing terribly exciting happened. Even the very end, which should have been a page-turner as it is the climax of the work, I found less intriguing than the middle part with Lucy.

Sometimes the characters really had me shake my head as to what they were thinking I mean really you leave Mina alone while you hunt for Dracula, and completely miss that she's showing the SAME SIGNS as Lucy did when Dracula was visiting her and instead chalk it up to what, female fragility? -sighs- I realize the time period, but really.

I thought that the male characters were interesting. I'm so used to males being all ~manly men~, it was nice to see vulnerability. That was actually one of the more appealing parts of the book to me. And even though Mina did spend a fair amount of time sighing and such, she had strength too, which I thought was also good. I thought it was really good for the time.

I felt that it was a comforting read, and I think that it would be a good bedtime story. I'm not sure that says wonderful things for the "horror" appeal of the book, but modern horror is different and I wouldn't expect the same sorts of things from a classic book.
View all my reviews

Recommendation: yes or no? Yes

I thought it would be neat for me to post this here too, and pimp the comm as well! :3

Sculpting challenge, day 194- Loki!Pony diadem! Also Perception and Rizzoli & Isles rambles

You guys, I am so excited Pony!Loki has his diadem!
First I sculpted the details:
Pony!Loki helmet sculpt progress

Then I got the horns attached (which was tricky!).

I actually modelled the diadem on my design for my own cosplay diadem- just a lot smaller! Also the shape is a bit different because some of the side details wouldn't work on the pony version. The helmet is currently cooling, I just pulled it out of the oven. Of course I baked it off separate from the Pony!Loki himself, because I never intended the armour to be permantely attached- and as such have already done much of the painting. Now I just hope nothing got moved during baking so it still fits properly!

Loki needs to be fabulous of course.

I've finally gotten all of my ponies up on dA except for Pony!Loki, tomorrow hopefully I can get Loki on there too, and just keep my dA up to date. It would be so much easier to upload them in real time, I'm trying to be better about keeping that updated.

Also, so much tv tonight! There were more Voice blinds, which I listened to while I was sculpting. I really like the Voice especially to have one while I'm doing crafts. It's even less necessary to look at the tv! lol

We also watched the season premiere of Rizzoli and Isles and Perception.
For Rizzoli and Isles, I've never been afraid of clowns, but the clown on this episode was pretty creepy. Does anyone actually like clowns? I don't remember really liking them as a kid, though at least I didn't find them scary.
I was REALLY REALLY excited for the next season of Perception, and I was so happy that it was renewed for a second season. I <3 Daniel so much. x3 I also find him so relatable.
I thought the model trains were especially interesting though since Scottie has actually been talking about wanting to get into model trains.

SO MUCH TV STARTING BACK UP THOUGH OMG. lol

Sculpting challenge, day 193- Loki!Pony armour and painting continued. Also The Voice and ferrets

Tonight I did a bit of painting on Pony!Loki, but just some minor stuffs. The main part of my night was spent getting the base of his helmet, or more accurately, his diadem planned out and started. It needs detail sculpting, and finishing, and the horns actually attached, but I am really happy with how it's coming along. :D
Pony!Loki's armour continued
I approve of all the gold...

Also watched season premiere of The Voice tonight! Nobody has exactly grabbed me tonight, but there were some good voices. I thought that the girl who sang Wrecking Ball actually did a really good job.

I am so sleepy! Have a sleepy Chaos sleeping in Scottie's arms. xD Ferrets are funny sleepers. He rolls over like that to show his belly usually when he's getting overly warm.

Sculpting challenge, day 192- Loki!Pony painting continued. Also a bit about Helix, comics, n movies

Pony!Loki paint continued

Just a quick post, I did some paint on Pony!Loki tonight. Some shading n stuffs. :3 Still not done but I'm happy with how things are coming. I'm going for kind of the shadowed look he had when he arrived on the scene in the Avengers.
loki has been here 30 seconds

Scottie also got the tablet set up on my computer, and I drew a bit of comic on it! I've always had something of a disconnect drawing on the tablet vs just a sketchpad, and I got over that! So that's pretty cool.

I still need to post about Fur Rondy, but that's going to have to wait as it's too late to get into that!

We watched Helix tonight, I thought it was actually a really interesting episode! People still make silly decisions, but I felt more drawn into the show on this episode tonight. I think that's a good thing!Is it weird that I want Dr. Hatake's watch? *koff*

Also, in the background today we had 2 Fast 2 Furious, then Tokyo Drift on the tv. Right now Joy Ride is on, and I haven't seen that movie in SO LONG. Paul Walker is just a bb there, it's hard to believe he's not here anymore.

Captian America!

So I finally watched Captain America! I have had the movie since Scottie got me the special Avengers box set for our anniversary this last November, and I really wanted to get all the movies watched that I've missed. That's one of the reasons that I wanted the box originally! I have this erm... tendency though to either put in the Avengers or Thor though for the 1000000000th time though when I go to grab a movie out of that box. No idea why. *koff*
ALL THE LOKIS
What was I doing again?

But I really did want to watch Cap's origin story, he's the only one I haven't seen yet! Plus ya'know if I do want to see the Winter Soldier in the theater, I'll want to have watched the first movie.

So here's how I felt after watching the movie:
cap right in the feels
The poor bb. T_T

Something neat I saw, Jenna Coleman (Clara on Dr Who) had a small part! Scottie was reading in the bedroom (he'd seen the movie before, and had a headache and so wanted to lie down) and he heard my fangirl squee when she came on. xD
I also thought it was awesome that they had Hugo Weaving as Red Skull. I told Scottie that I was excited that they had Agent Elrond, because I'm a dork.

More specific things under a spoiler cut:

I had to squee at seeing the tesseract, the Yggdrasil mural where it was hidden, and also at the end where they showed Asgard space. xD

The part where little Steve threw himself on the grenade at training camp? Aw, the bb. I think that's a good scene to show his character.

I had to laugh at "Do you two... fondue?" xD I was talking to that scene to Scottie after regarding the different Starks, but he didn't quite remember the reference. He was like fondue? And I was like well, we fondue, and then he was like "Well, I am Fond Oh You" and it was really cute. xD

Then of course there's Bucky.
bucky glance
I couldn't help but think that writers really like to throw characters from high places (Loki, Bucky, Sherlock.....)
bucky fall
Poor cap...

And of course the end of the movie also hurt my heart. "I had a date." Just, ow my feels. T_T


I'm really happy that I've watched that now so Cap can be one of my Marvel bbs properly.
captain-america-vs-loki-o
Of course Loki is still my bb 1000000%

I feel a bit spoiled as I didn't feel like there was any eye candy in that movie for me though (besides the little bit with Clara).
Cap!Loki costume is a bit much
Well ok now that I can certainly get behind xD

I have more things to post about, but I'll have to talk about them later! This weekend was the start of Fur Rondy, a winter festival that coincides with the Iditarod here, and we went out to enjoy some of the stuffs!

Sculpting challenge, day 191- Loki!Pony painting continued. Also future projects + olympics skating

So I am finally feeling well enough that I can start on my arts again! Did some painting on Pony!Loki, it's not done yet but I wanted to give him shaded socks and hoof colour.
DSCN5080.JPG
Oh, I love painting, it is a purrfect activity!

I also have a REALLY strong inspiration for another sculpt, but I actually want to use my Wacom tablet for it instead of my sketchbook like usual. I don't have it configured for my computer though, so Scottie being his awesome self is going to set that up for me tomorrow. I don't want to say what exactly it is just yet, but I swear when I woke up this morning all I wanted to do was go start on this project. I had to go to work though instead, ah well! I need infinite time. lol

I watched the Olympics women's figure skating long program tonight! I'm going to be so sad when this is all over. n_n'
I really loved Yuna Kim's performance! I was happy for her. I liked how artistic it felt. I also enjoyed Adelina Sotnikova's program! I liked Yuna's a bit more though. I apprieciated and respected Carolina Kostner's, but it wasn't really my taste. I did like it more as it progressed though. I still love Julia Lipnitskaia, I felt bad for her when she fell. Loved Ashley Wagner's performance, and she had one of my favorite outfits of the night. I also loved loved loved Akiko Suzuki's outfit. So pretty. :3 Also, she was skating to Phantom of the Opera, which I love, that music is something that I am most intimately familiar with. :3

Ending with the fabulous Johnny Weir, who gets Loki mixed in with him when I google him. xD

What else did I get at the store yesterday? Scaremester Catrine photoshoot featuring Rochelle :3

So last night when we were at the store, the Star Trek Into Darkness rental wasn't the only thing I brought home! I also found the lovely Scaremester Catrine! I didn't have time last night to unbox her, but I did that tonight and took pictures while I was watching the Avengers. I mean, I had to see my favorite flavor of british villian anti-hero in a glass box, after all. xD
loki-as-snape-o
I'm still so out of it, that was about the extent of what I was capable of today. I am almost a functioning human again though, which is good.

Anyway, here's pictures of Catrine, who is gorgeous btw!
Unboxing pics and box art )

Scaremester Catrine
I love that her tail bow actually has a little kitty MH skull in the center of the bow, instead of just the standard MH skull or even just a standard bow. xD

Catrine's accessories )

Then I decided to take some more pictures of Catrine with another doll, and decided Rochelle made sense. And then I decided they were cute together. xD I was originally going to pair Catrine with Catty Noir, but now I'm not sure. n_n'

Rochelle and Catrine
Rochelle liked the Scarisian fromage and ghost truffles I brought for her, which is purrfect

Puuurrrrfection )

Rochelle and Catrine
Hello darling~

Ok, now I have to get to bed!

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] madmogs!

Some say his skin as the texture of a dolphin’s, and that wherever you are in the world, if you turn your radio to 88.4 you can actually hear his thoughts. All we know is he’s called the Stig, and he wants to wish you a happy birthday!
