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~
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki reading)
Essential Thor Volume 2Essential Thor Volume 2 by Stan Lee

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My last reaction for this set of comics:

Wow Thor. Just... wow. lol
Thor/Jane and Thor/Sif spoilers ahead.
What sadness lengthens Thor's hours? )
My reaction to Jane:
loki oh for heavens sake

Things I was excited about in this (besides anything with Loki in general):
The introduction of the Warriors Three (Fandral, Hogun, and Volstagg), the Infinity Stones, the introduction of Hela (Loki's bb!) and the Destroyer armor.

I was so happy during the first part of the book because Loki was prominently featured. At about the halfway point though Odin threw Loki into the Void. He appeared a couple of times after this but is still not back at the end of this book. He was still in the Tales of Asgard comics... until Odin threw Loki into suspended animation forever for things he hadn't done yet (obviously not for forever actually, since these comics are from the past). He was still not back in these by the end of this book.
Loki is my favorite character. This does not please me.

The colonizer aliens were odd, though I could see how they might have influenced the story for the Avengers movie. I thought the Hercules storyline was interesting, though after a while I really wanted to get back to my Norse gods, which we did.

View all my reviews

Also! I finally made a reading Loki icon. I want to make one from stuff from the movie instead of just the promo stuff, but for now this will have to do. I swear every time I do a book post, or comment about books, I'd be thinking 'BUT THERE'S ALL THE STUFF WITH LOKI READING WHILE IMPRISONED WHY DO I NOT HAVE AN ICON OF THIS' but now I have fixed it. lol
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki incredulous)
Today I made more progress on the Loki pony. I finished sculpting the legs, and set them baking. Tomorrow I should be able to finish the head sculpt, and sculpt the legs to the body. I have plans for the mane and tail that should be interesting should I go with it. Then armour. :D

I could bake this for you, ya'know...
Heath: Ya'know, I could bake this for you!
Abbey: Perhaps you would have use as sculpt baker.
Frankie: I don't think that's how it works guys...

I might have gotten a bit further, but we were both rather antsy so we went out for a bit. We went to the comic book store. I didn't see the next issue of Young Avengers and I'm not sure if I should be worried about that since it's supposed to have been published already... I do have a pull box but nobody ever puts anything in it. I really need to fix that. I'd be really annoyed if I missed the final issue simply because of a mix-up with my box.

Since I wasn't picking up a copy of Young Avengers, I went and picked up a copy of Journey Into Mystery #622, which is the start of kid Loki. :3 I really want to get all of those back issues!

I felt bad because the girl checking me out was asking me if I saw and liked Thor 2, and was talking to me about how she really liked the comic I was picking up, and I was feeling all flustered because of random anxiety I've been dealing with today and because I was having trouble breathing because of the tail end of my plague. Afterward I was like OMG SOMEBODY WANTED TO TALK TO ME IRL ABOUT THE STUFF THAT I FANGIRL ABOUT AND THIS IS THE TIME THAT MY BRAIN AND BODY DECIDE THEY WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING FUNCTIONAL. ASDFGHLJLLKJFWHY

What I got at the comic book store today
Anyway, the girl put a preview comic in my bag, and one of the first things that I saw was a teaser for Loki: Agent of Asgard WHICH I AM UNCONTROLLABLY EXCITED FOR. xD
Hiddles uncontrollably excited

I didn't get to unbox all of my new dolls today because we spent part of the day out and about, but Scottie did unbox his Operetta and I snapped a quick picture. Here she is!
Quick picture of Operetta! )
The Dance Class Operetta has swing dancing as her theme. Which is especially appropriate, since Scottie was vice president of the swing dance club at our university. :D I also swing dance, but I don't have that distinction. I just went to the meetings and danced! xD
hiddles snl dance
Have a completely unrelated gif of Hiddles dancing because I do what I want.
milleniumgypsy: (FMA- snowman!Al christmas)
So when I got home from work today I found this under the tree!
What was under the tree for me?
Scottie wanted to make sure that I had my present tonight so that I could play it right away! I have tomorrow off of work so I could play it later if I wanted. :3 I've played through Dishonored once already when we had our Gamefly trail membership going last Christmas, and I loved the game! But I only finished one playthrough (Clean Hands, the playing as a good character and getting the good ending basically), and there are a lot of trophies and things that I didn't get on that playthrough yet. But I didn't want to hog the rental forever, and I figured I'd get the game later. And then DLC came out for it too, which is on this disk! I'm super excited about it! I played that for much of the evening. :3

Scottie also pre-ordered the Pirate Fairy for me as I'd mentioned before, but that won't come in until spring I think. But I'm so excited about that! I am unashamed to say that I think the Tinkerbell movies are cute, and then when I found out that Hiddles was voicing Captian Hook I mean there's no question I'd want it. :3

I also drew Scottie a large comic panel which he really liked! (I know, I still need to get my comics up where you guys can see them, I'm going to figure that out soon!) I have something else that I want to do for him too. :3

Today at work I went around delivering all the cards to my coworkers, and did a lot of chatting. It was a very productive unproductive day. Everyone had Christmas-itis. lol

I'll probably post something tomorrow too, but in case I'm not on:
Hiddles Happy Christmas

No matter what you celebrate (and ya'know, I'm actually wiccan xD)I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow!
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki restore to "glory")
I just got an automatic birthday wish from Den of Angels, I was amused because I hadn't really realized that tomorrow was my birthday. lol I mean, I know that it was almost here, but it just... hadn't occurred to me exactly? I'm not sure how I feel about birthdays. I don't like when people around me age!

Today me and Scottie went to our local comic shop so I could pick up the next issue of Young Avengers. Can I say how much I love that comic? :D
Hiddles approves
I need to get back issues of Journey into Mystery when I can afford to! So much amazingness.
I also picked up the Neil Gaiman Sandman comic that was there. :3 It was really cheap too!
What did I get from the comic shop today?

Ghoulia approves
Ghoulia is an honorary member. xD

I was reading the collected classic Thor comics (I'm on the second volume of that) from the library, but I had to return them. I need to get that again so I can continue reading those too! I think I'm going to mark down favorites of the old comics to look at getting for my collection later.


I've also started playing Dragon Age. I started putting together my character and Scottie was surprised that my character was male. Then he was like "You're making Loki, aren't you?". Which of course I was, lol. Then I was like "Yeeeees. I don't know the last time I've made a male character when I've had the choice between the two, the last time was... ... ...?" "You've never made a guy when you've had the choice." "I guess I haven't! I did consider making Lady Loki though." xD
I've named my puppy Fenrir. I am having fun with this. ehehehe xD
Loki I like this
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki throwing up horns)
So I was responding to a musical post on another journal, so I thought I would put it on my journal too.

What music am I currently listening to a lot lately?

Not in any other particular order.
1. Five Finger Death Punch- Battle Born
2. Lana Del Rey - Summertime Sadness
3. The Prodigy- Poison
4. Miley Cyrus- Wrecking Ball
5. Daft Punk- Get LokiLucky
6. Twenty One Pilots- House of Gold
7. Whatever Jonny Gray is currently singing on the Voice <3
8. Portugal the Man- Purple Yellow Red and Blue
9. Sigur Rós - Festival
10. Lady Gaga- Applause
BONUS: Tom Hiddleston: The Bare Necessities or The Man in the Mirror, because those make me happy.


If I do this again, would anyone be interested in me figuring out how to put youtube videos in my post? n_n'

Bonus unrelated bit: Continuing my reading of classic Thor comics (which I am enjoying a lot!).
They've recently changed Loki's outfit where I am to not be the horned helmet, but the circlet with the smaller horns on the front and the wings on the sides. Unfortunetely the artist hasn't seemed to have settled on what his circlet is supposed to look like.
I am currently attempting to just pretend that Loki is shifting his outfit because lol he can do that, but I know that's not actually what's going on. Guys could you maybe try to remember from panel to panel if the band has the horns on it or not. end mini rant
loki outfit shift
milleniumgypsy: (Hiddleston- Long live the King)
First off, a note about my Loki comics! Scottie is completely amazing and took one of my comics, vectorized it, and coloured it! I need to do a little bit more with it, and then I think I will post it here soon, hopefully tomorrow!

Today was interesting! It was payday and when we looked at the bank we found more money there than I was expecting! There was something negotiated with my union that got us back some money, it had something to do with my health insurance plan. Most of that money is going towards bills, but we got a few fun things!

First off, we wanted to check out some candles so we went to Walmart. While there, we stopped by the doll aisle, of course! THERE WERE SO MANY THINGS OMG. The Spectra 13 wishes DJ set! Abbey and Heath (which I really, really want)! The Cleo and Ghoulia lab partners set! The Die-ner pack with Operetta and Lala! A bunch of 13 Wishes dolls! The 13 Wishes Cleo with the playset. The Ghouls Night out 4 pack. I didn't even know what to do with myself. I was just like
Side note, Scottie is amused that I tend to say "Oh my ghoul"

Scottie actually nearly picked up the Spectra for me earlier in the day, because he's amazing and knew that I'd love her (which I did), but he wanted to make sure that I got the doll that I most wanted so he waited. He felt relatively safe leaving her since she was more expensive than a single doll due to the playset, so there was a better chance there would still be one there later after work.
So I was torn, but then there was this baby doll behind me in the aisle that was motion sensitive and kept making these creepy noises. I decided that I was officially done with listening to it, so I was going to put it somewhere else (really I just wanted to punt it out of the store but ya'know). While moving it down the aisle, I saw on the back wall more MH dolls... and I saw her. CATRINE. CATRINE YOU GUYS! I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR HER FOR SO LONG!
Hiddles uncontrollably excited
So, I finally have her! There were two, and I picked the nicest looking of the two. Just, so happy!

I'll have to post pictures of her tomorrow. I've felt really sick today so I haven't been terribly productive. n_n'

Literally the first words out of my mouth when I saw we had some extra money were "Sooo we can get The Avengers now?!" xD But there's that awesome box set so I'm not sure. After thinking about it for a bit, I'm probably not going to do that because it's rather expensive (though it's not overpriced for what's in it), and that's a lot of money at once. It makes more sense to get The Avengers by itself. BUT there's another thing I really really want, and that's The Hollow Crown. I'm thinking that I'm going to pick that up on Amazon first, and then get The Avengers next month.

How did it get this late?
tom you are going to be so sleepy
Yes yes Hiddles I know. xD
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki shock)
I drew another chibi Loki/etc comic tonight! Scottie really likes them. :3 I'm still not sure exactly how I'm going to post them. I think if I do they should be coloured. And if I do start making comics regularly I should probably put them into a more standard format. Atm they're sort of running amok in my sketchbook. It's fun though!

Watched Rissoli and Isles tonight and got hit in the feels. It's so sad about Lee Thompson Young's passing. :(

Then I read the most recent Girls with Slingshots comic about the artist's grandmother's passing, and since it was all about sending postcards to an awesome gramma that also hit me in the feels. It made me think of my gramma, and the folder of postcards I have that will never be sent. She was an awesome lady and I miss her still.

boxes of feels

Sorry about the lack of sculpting progress, I'll get back to posting art soon. I just haven't really figured out how I'm going to post my comic stuff and I haven't had time to sculpt! I hope I'm not being too boring. n_n'
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki ehehehe)
I drew another chibi Loki comic today, Scottie really liked it. I even chibified him and put him in! It might have involved this reference at one point:
It was all about the walk. I had the walk down. And the call!

I'm going to regret this
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki two horns up)
Sigh, I don't want the weekend to be over.

I'm going to go do a bit of sculpting now, and possibly pop in Loki Thor. I don't want to drive Scottie bonkers though. I just get excited about stuff!

I've been sketching out chibi Loki and Avengers comics, and that's making me really excited! I might do more comics. I've never drawn chibi style before but it turns out that I'm pretty good at it. xD It's a lot of fun.

Of course, growing up around all the art theft on neopets has made me a super paranoid artist. It took a lot for me to finally put up pictures of my sculpts, but that's taking a picture of something 3D.

I've never posted pictures of any of my watercolours, drawings, or even my sketches past the glimpses of my ponies you see in my sketchbook. But I think that maybe I need to take inspiration from Hiddles!
Hiddles never be afraid
I've been working on that. Because hiding my stuff away because I'm afraid that someone will take it really does me no good. :P

In other news, I think I put mom into Odinsleep because I haven't heard anything back from her yet.

Iron Man 3

milleniumgypsy: (Pokemon N- grumpy heart)
Sooo probably not going to do any arts tonight. Going to talk about the movie but nothing terribly spoilery.

Iron Man 3 came to the cheap theatre so we went to go see it (if we had the monies, we totally would have done the regular theatre). I LOVED IT. OMG. IT GOT ME RIGHT IN THE FEELS.
Iron Man 3

I didn't realize exactly how perfect it was going to be for me until I went to go see it. I looooved the first two Iron Man movies so I was really excited about the next installment. I am sad to say that as much as I want to see the Avengers I haven't yet. It came out while I was at Pilot last and directly coming back from it I was too spaztastic to go to the theatre.

After watching the movie I was like IF I DIDN'T HAVE TO GO TO WORK TOMORROW MORNING I WOULD FIND A REDBOX AND RENT IT RIGHT NOW. All caps is also very appropriate because I was basically exploding with feels during the movie and when we were out of the theatre. It's sort of silly that I haven't seen the Avengers yet, but it basically has a lot to do with my state of mind that I just couldn't sit still long enough to watch a movie most of the time.

Iron Man is my new patron super hero. It was Spidey, and I still love me some Spidey, but this just speaks to me more now. In the beginning of the movie I was like this is how I am about stuff, this is how I feel (right down to his manic creating). And then I was like, if a freaking super hero can deal with these feels I can deal with these feels. (I realize it's fictional, but that doesn't matter.)
Iron Man 3 comfort

Though at the moment, I still feel like this:
