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~

I just went in a drawing spree for part of Scottie's anniversary present. I'm really excited about it, but I'm not done yet. I need to go to sleep though!
He was trying to guess what I was doing. I suck at lying, so I decided to tell him that I was making him drawings of helicopter sandwiches. I have no idea why this came into my head, but yeah. So every time he asked me a question about it, I gave him more details about the helicopter sandwich. The only problem with that though is that it eventually stopped being fun for Scottie because he wasn't getting real clues and then he stopped asking me questions. I was able to successfully evade though!
hopeless liar tom

I think next time I'll play along more though and just try to be vague because it's more fun that way. It's just unlikely that I'll actually keep anything secret! lol

Time for bed. *falls asleep in keyboard*

Hey guys! I finalized my costume design! I took the armour and jacket and sort of merged it into a battle dress. xD It's an imperfect drawing, but I was only focused on getting out a design. I have never done a fashion drawing before actually, but I don't think they're terribly concerned with the realism of the model. lol
My Lady Loki costume design
Please ignore the fact that my model looks like an alien giraffe

I'm not sure exactly what materials I'm going to use. The real costume is leather of course, but that's expensive and heavy. Expensive is the more important thing here though. I'm more concerned with it looking good though over comfort, because if it looks like crap because I have the wrong fabric why did I bother, ya'know? I'm considering looking to snag some thrift store/ebay/etc leather trench coats or something to cannibalize.

I've been trying to figure out exactly how the back of the costume works (the flowy bits in the back are my most favorite design element), but I wasn't having the best luck finding good reference photos of the back. I have seen useful video though, though that can be a hazardous proposition. "Oh, I'm just watching this for, erm, research!" *afterward* "Oops, wasn't paying attention to what I meant to! Gotta watch it again I guess, daaarn."
Loki that was the plan
Shhhhhhhh Loki!

Unrelated, we also started to make candles tonight! I took a couple of pictures of the process, they're under the cut if you want to see them. Basically we need candles for ritual, and we can't ever find the right colours, and we want unscented candles because we burn incense but the large majority of candles seem to be scented already... so we got a candle making kit and are trying out making our own. We just wanted to try some simple white votives for a first try.

My mom used to make fancy candles when I was growing up, so I have a bit of an idea of how it works. If I was currently speaking to my mom, I would consider asking her about it. xP

I was planning on doing more this weekend, but I actually ended up being really sick. e_e Because of this I haven't been quite as productive as I would have hoped, but I don't think I did too terrible.

I did play Borderlands 2 with Scottie more, we are at an important story point and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA THE FEELS

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

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.
