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!).
Pony!Loki helmet sculpt after attaching horns

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

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...
loki costume shift

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.
Sleepy Chaos

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.
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki restore to "glory")
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
johnny-weir-be-unique-o
Ending with the fabulous Johnny Weir, who gets Loki mixed in with him when I google him. xD
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki throwing up horns)
So I didn't get as much sculpting done as I might have liked, but I did finish the second bracer tonight! I need to figure out exactly how I'm going to bake it to keep the correct shape, I'll probably bake it onto a foil form. I was also doing a mockup of what I'm going to do with the helmet with regular super sculpey, just for planning purposes. I think I have a better idea of what I'm going to do now!

DSCN4982.JPG

Watched Lost girl tonight! We're on Let the Dark Times Roll (Episode 5)
I talk a bit about the episode, as well as a bit of talk about Game of Thrones (book) and Loki (shocking I know). xD
Kenzi Von Clare. I'm Bo's honeybee, and I'm here for some sugar. )

Time for bed~
loki thumbs up
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki kneel before him)
Just a quick entry as holy kau it's late, but I was just so excited to start on Pony!Loki's armour. I'm starting with Loki's bracers, these will go on his forelegs. I've just done the one side so far, and I'll definitely use paint to help bring out the detail after baking. Also I'm probably going to add moar battle scarring. (Those gashes are totes intentional!) I should probably take a closer picture of the detail, but that's not going to happen quite yet. n_n'

Beginning armour for Pony!Loki
I suppose that will suffice.

Closer view of the bracers
I do need a closer view, you can't really see but there is a snake in the top right corner.

This isn't the best view of what they look like for reference, but I like this anyway. *koff*
Loki shhhh

Tonight I watched curling with Scottie tonight! I think that's a really interesting sport. I just wish they didn't have to jump ahead in the game so much, we're actually interested in seeing how they get to the points where it's "exciting". xD

Also watched Lost Girl, but I shouldn't get into that quite yet.
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
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki mwahaha)
Today I finally got started on Pony!Loki's paint! I have the white base down so far. Part of my time was also spent just getting my palette set up. I decided that I will paint the pony, then I will make the armour, and it will be removeable. :3

DSCN4946.JPG
You will be having the details soon. This is good.

I also started watching the Olympics! I was super excited about the figure skating. :3 In the short program pairs, my favorite was the Canadian pair that was in 2nd. The Russian pair was also really good though.
I also really liked the guy that did his program to Roxanne from Moulin Rouge. I love that song!


Also, the warmer weather that we've been having seems to be going away as the temp has dropped and it was snowing when I walked home today. Ah well.
loki give the people what they want thor

I had a pretty awful migraine this evening, so I'm pretty happy with what I was able to accomplish. n_n'
milleniumgypsy: (Hiddleston- I am the bad guy)
I did end up making the mane of Pony!Loki yesterday, but I just didn't get to post about it quite yet. I'm actually quite happy with how it turned out. :3 I'd started it on Friday actually, but I only got the core started before I ended up having issues with dizzyness.
I had been rather excited though about how well the covered core actually worked all by itself for Loki out of the first Thor lol. But here it is finished! I need to bake it, and then I can start on painting. Or maybe I should do armour first. I'll have to think about how exactly I want to do things.

Pony!Loki sculpt continued

One more picture )

Also, today was the Superbowl! I've never actually watched the Superbowl before. lol I mean, I sort of did once when I was still at Signal and me and Scottie went to a Superbowl potluck, but I was really there for the potluck and the socializing. And alchohol. ehehehe n_n'
I decided that I wanted to watch the Superbowl though because I knew that Hiddles was going to be on a Jaguar commercial (british villians, #GoodtobeBad) and I wanted to see it. I had to laugh about it because I've never watched the Superbowl for the sports OR the ads before. But there I was! Scottie's not a huge sports fanatic, so he usually doesn't mind that I'm disinterested in most sports, but I think he was excited that I was actually excited to put on a sports thing. lol He watched the game with me. :3 I only wish the game had been more interesting for him!
I sort of paid attention to the game, but I honestly had more fun looking at the silly commercials while flailing around with fellow Hiddlestoners on twitter waiting for Hiddles to appear. xD
good to be bad
It was so worth it!

There was supposed to be an ad for Muppets Most Wanted on the Superbowl, but I didn't see it. I'm not sure if it got replaced by a local ad or what, but I was kind of bummed. But I did watch the spot on youtube afterward, and it was hilarious. xD What I found really funny though was that I switched to the Puppy Bowl after the Superbowl was off, and I saw a special spot for Muppets there which included Hiddles. EVERYONE WAS TARGETING ME LOL.
Is that you Steve?
Hiddles looks like Steve here. Also, more Hiddles in chains. *koff*
Loki define worse
bb why does everyone want to put you in chains?

I had way more fun than I was expecting though! I liked the halftime show with Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers quite a lot! I also liked all the fireworks, and the Broncos even lead the team out with a horse!
There were other fun commercials too besides the ones with Hiddles. I saw the spot for Captain America 2, Spider-Man 2, plus ads with Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle (Colonel James Rhodes/War Machine). Outside of my Marvel bbs, the spot with Morpheous was awesome, and Colbert was hilarious.

Also, Scottie and I made homemade nachos for the day! He made a fresh salsa and we made our own chips. He actually started before I woke up, and he took some pictures before I woke up because he knew that I'm all about pictures. :3
He's such a sweetie! Also, I say Scottie and I made the nachos, but really I'm his sous chef. xD

Food porn )

Superbowl Sunday nachos
The finished plate of nachos! They were so good. :D

Apparently, I had a lot of things to say. xD
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki face)
Tonight I sculpted Pony!Loki's tail tonight! I had been thinking of using fleece for it, but once I pulled out my wool I realized it wasn't going to give me the look I wanted, and that I'd want to go with sculpted hair. I decided to do what I did with N!Pony's tail, just a bit more delicate. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. :3 It'll need some finishing of course, but I have the main body of it done.
I thought that my style of tail that I'd used for the N!Pony would work well for the flippy hair style. :3
loki glance
I wish I'd been able to get to the mane, but that will have to wait for tomorrow.

Pony!Loki sculpt continued

One more picture )

I had moved my Abbey and Heath out of the way, and stood them over at the end of my sculpting area. I thought that they looked cute, so I decided to take a picture of them. xD I don't even pair them together, but it was still fun. ehehehe
Fire and Ice
This is like prom picture. Behave fire boy! I have ghoulfriend already.
I know I know, I'm dating a dragon, so I'm totally going to behave.

I have a pretty awful headache atm. Trying for sleep now! Tomorrow at work should be pretty stressful in the morning so I hope that I can. If I still have a headache in the morning, and/or if I can't sleep, that's not going to help. :P
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!
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki frustrated)
Tonight I finished up my Loki pony sculpt, and now he's currently in the oven. Next I'll have to figure out the mane and tail (which I have plans for), then painting and costuming! I'm looking forward to making him a helmet especially. xD

"I really can bake it!" "Nooo"
Why won't you let me bake him? I totally can!
Nuuuuuu

timer goes off
I just pulled him out of the oven, I saw that he'd shifted during baking that caused his left ear got kind of smushed. While attempting to see how bad it was I broke it off. Graaaaah.
loki really

I'm not going to be able to do anything to fix it until tomorrow since he's currently still super hot.
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki restore to "glory")
I did a lot of sculpting today actually. I got the body together, which was more difficult than normal because I am using much stronger leg armatures than normal. They were the ones I was originally going to use on the N pony, but I'd misplaced them. It turns out that I didn't need quite as strong wire for the sculpt since I didn't have the hefty wire for N and worked fine, but since I'd already cut and shaped them I used them for this. It just makes any repositioning a pain in my assgardian soul, ehehehe.
Tom!Loki pain in assgardian soul
I was just looking at this and I can't help myself.

Anyway, got the body put together and sculpted. I have plans for some different posing in upcoming sculpts, but for the first Loki pony I wanted a somewhat nuetral position.
I did a lot of sculping on the head as well, and am sculpting the face. I'm really pleased with how that's coming along.

Ah, Balder, thy name is Laughter
Alas, poor Balder!- I knew him, Horatio.

Tomorrow I should be able to finish the head sculpt, attach ears, finish the body... and bake hopefully! Then work on the mane and tail next. :3

I have tomorrow off because it's a holiday, so I'm pretty excited about what I'll be able to do tomorrow!
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki restore to "glory")
Tonight I continued on with my Loki pony sculpt! I worked mostly on the legs. I made foil cores for the leg armatures and hooves, which is actually not something I normally do. Normally the limbs of my sculpts are just clay because that's easier, but I'm getting low on clay stores so I wanted to try the foil. I think it's going alright, it just takes more effort. xD I have the back legs roughed out, and the front legs near finishing. I also conditioned clay for the rest of the sculpt. I also did a bit of fiddling around with the head and body.

Continuing Loki pony sculpt
I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along.

I'm still sick, but I did manage to go into work today. I'm actually doing better, though I'm still depending on cold medicine to allow me to continue to be at least somewhat functional.

The weather here today is weeeeird. I left work a little early today since I'd been fairly productive and I felt ill. I only walked home this week on Monday, but every day after that Scottie's been picking me up from work since walking home in the cold while sick didn't seem like a great plan. I miss the excercise but I certainly want to get better. But since I was leaving a little early the sun was actually still out, and not only that but it was raining. And it wasn't freezing rain like I'd feared it would be, it was just... raining. And SUPER windy. I felt like I was walking out into the twilight zone because just, wut. It is currently 36°F, that is so so weird. I expect this time to be somewhere closer to like -10°F or something lol. I know this can't last, but I'll enjoy it while it does?
The wind was crazy though. With the high winds and the wet ice I felt like I was going to get blown away when I was walking outside. We stopped at the grocery store and when we were leaving the wind blew a bunch of ice/snow off of the roof and caused Scottie and me to get pelted by rocks when it hit. I'm glad that it didn't hit us though because that would have been less than pleasant. :P

I scored an awesome deal on some dolls while we were there! Fred Meyer had a selection of MH dolls on clearance, and then they had all of their clearance stuff at an additional 40% off. I haven't bought new dolls in forever so I only had a couple of the dolls that were on clearance! (In fact, there were a couple of dolls in that selection that I couldn't pick up that I didn't already have lol)
Scottie has our budget planned out so that I can get a doll in a month, and I spent my doll budget tonight. xD It was awesome though because for the budget (allowing for one doll) I was able to get four! It was slightly over, but one of the dolls was for Scottie because he collects Operetta and there was a Dance Class Operetta that he's been wanting. I'm so happy he was able to finally get her!
For myself I picked up a Dance Class Robecca Steam (my first doll for that character!), and an I <3 Shoes Lala and an I <3 Shoes Cleo.
hiddles success
I'll have to unbox them tomorrow, but I should get to bed now. n_n'
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki pensive)
Here's my progress so far! I have the head sculpt started. I might change the eye shape, I sort of just doodled that on for an idea of how it would look. I also started shaping the body, and started the front legs.

Beginning Loki pony sculpt

I wish I had been able to get more done, but I'm still sick and apparently doing anything makes me want to take a nap. lol :P I'm planning on going in to work tomorrow though, so time to get to bed.
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki close soft)
It's really late so I don't have a lot of time to post, but I did do some sculpting tonight! I decided on the spur of the moment that my normal pony head sculpt is a bit too soft for Loki so I edited my plans. Scottie came by and looked and said I had a nice jawline and cheekbones going on my sculpt. ehehehe xD I'm rather proud of that.

Still sick, bleh. Not excited about work tomorrow.
milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki shift)
I still need to do detail painting and accessories for N, but since I'm sick stuff like that isn't exactly the best idea.

So starting my next pony first! Here's a quick teaser picture. :3
Beginning of Loki pony sculpt :3

I was so inspired this morning, the last few hours of my sleeping was filled with figuring out how I wanted to do upcoming projects, and new things to do, and things to write. I said that I felt like Pierro out of Dishonored (in case you don't get the reference, the Outsider comes to him in dreams and gives him plans for inventions to work on). Scottie asked me if the Outsider had come to me too, and I was like nuuu, then he asked me if Loki had come to me and I was like well Loki is my muse. xD
Loki appear
A good portion of those plans are Loki projects too though. ehehehe

I have to post about how awesome Scottie had been this weekend (well, he's always awesome, but you know what I mean), but I should probably get to sleep. Why is it Monday tomorrow uuuugh.
