milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki restore to "glory")
I really meant to work on my sculpt tonight but I ended up feeling rather under the weather instead. Bleh.

But I did watch some tv! I wrote out my thoughts about the shows, put under cuts just in case. :3
Helix I actually watched last night.
I thought it was interesting to finally find out what they were talking about with the White Room. Scottie totally called it that the outside was what they were talking about. xD
Me and Scottie were both amused that Dr. Farragut just used a compass to get back to the line. Take that traitor military dude!
I'm assuming Dr. IVIT's head is alive somehow, since they went through the trouble of showing us that the frozen monkeys were alive since they were screaming when they were set on fire.
Not sure yet what Dr. Hatake's play is yet, looking forward to seeing what he's up to.

(I realize that's a SHIELD quote, but I don't think Helix has been terribly quotable. And well, monkeys?)

All the love for Agents of SHIELD!
I was so amused by Stan Lee's appearance in the show! That was awesome. Scottie said that might have been his longest speaking cameo, and he might be right. xD I figured he had to show up at some point!

Poor Simmons lol. I excel at prep but I am awful at improv so look at my extremely detailed backstory! Don't you want to know what marine life we looked at? *pout*
I can sort of feel for her though. I tend to over-prep everything, though I don't think I'm as bad with improv.
I was excited that Mike's character was finally revealed (as Deathlok)!
I was so amused by Coulson and Ward trying to work the holotable.
Agent May is as always a badass. xD I was also amused by this scene:
May: Oh yeah I totally told Coulson about us *flings self out of train window*
Ward: Wait wut?!

I am so looking forward to next week! Lorelai and Sif! I mean, it's not Loki, but it's still Asgardian. And Lorelai is the little sister of the Enchantress, which is pretty awesome. xD


Face-Off
I'm not sure what to say about this episode. I think the seed for the show (the guitars) was a bit hard for the artists to really get their heads around. At least that's what I'm assuming. I didn't really like anyone's look very much. I really liked the idea of the 2nd place makeup with the clear chestplate with the ribs and heart and things underneath. I was most struck by the abstract guitar makeup that won, but I wasn't entirely sold on the concept. It was a bit wierd.
I was a bit unsure about it because it didn't really say guitar in any way. I also liked it better than the others because they didn't have a set of guitar neck horns like so many others. I guess I prefered the too abstract over the too literal.
I was surprised that the angular red makeup ended up on the bottom. I didn't think it was great but there were probably other's I'd have picked instead. Not that I'd have picked it to win either, but I thought it was more of a middling look.
I wasn't surprised at all that the rockabilly makeup ended up on the bottom, especially after the horn fell off during inspection. She had to know that she was going home at that point. I feel for the girl because she was clearly having issues and anxiety sucks, but you still need to be able to get the work done regardless.
Anyway, a sort of meh episode this week, which is disappointing.

This gif of Hiddles playing the guitar is more satisfying than the guitar episode of Face-Off to me

I'm mostly caught up on tv so far, though I still need to watch the last episode of Lost Girl.
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki throwing up horns)
Just a quick update post! I haven't been feeling very well this evening, which isn't really helpful for posting. n_n'

But I repaired Pony!Loki! I carved off the edges from the head and ear (which fixed the problems from it baking bent), and then I sculpted the ear back onto the head. I was going to just sculpt on a whole new ear if that didn't work, but since I liked the way the first ear had turned out I was at least going to try to repair the original ear. Since I knew I was going to do a short bake on the sculpt anyway, I also did some more sculpting around the hooves and legs.
I baked him, and everything seems to have turned out alright! Now tomorrow I'll be able to start on the next stage. :3
loki thumbs up

I watched the most recent episode of Face-Off tonight! I was super excited about the dragon make-ups they were doing. I really loved the frozen dragon! So happy that won. I was also amused that the seahorse dragon girl was so positive that she was going home, which I understand because she had a lot of issues, but she didn't even end up on the bottom. That says a lot for the sculpt that she was able to get out there. I totally agreed with what they said about the dragon that was sent home- I mean he had a lot of work there but the first thing I said when I saw it was that it didn't read as a dragon to me. It looked like cross between a yappy dog and a fish wearing armor.
I don't remember anyone's names yet, but I liked that the guy that picked the Frozen theme was excited about recognizing the location for Stark's house. xD

Also continued watching Helix, is anyone else watching that show on here? I like the concepts, and I really want to like the show, but I have issues with the choices that they make on the show. Since they're supposed to be a group of exceptionally smart people you'd think that they'd make less stupid decisions. xP
On the premeire I'd tweeted about the show and one of the actresses had favorited them, which was really neat to me. ehehehe n_n'
Scottie said the most recent episode made him think that the show was originally intended to be set in space, and that makes a lot of sense!

I am so sorry guys I'm still sick and that's not really doing wonders for my posting/commenting. I'm unfortunetly not any better than I was last Thursday when this started, and the last few days have been remarkably worse than before. Ugh go away plague.

I've still been dragging my butt to work, but I'm giving in and taking a day off of work tomorrow. Possibly Friday too though I don't really want to take out that much leave, so hopefully I don't have to- I cash out leave to supplement our income but I can't do that if I use it.

I told Scottie that I was going to stay home and instead infect a fictional city with the plague playing Dishonored. lol

Scottie was awesome though and found Lego Marvel short films I hadn't seen before. THEY WERE SO CUTE, OMG. He watched them with me, and I said it was totally a win because my face hurt because I was smiling so hard instead of hurting because it hurt. lol
lego loki
Loki was the main villian for all of the shorts, making minions out of other villians. There were a lot of different heroes! Including Spidey, which makes me happy because he's one of my early bbs. xD

Here's a link to the first episode in case you haven't seen it yet and would like to. :3


When I got home tonight I basically just cuddled with Scottie and watched tv. Excited about the return of Face-off and Suburgatory, will have to talk about those later!
