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.

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

Still not feeling well, so here are some previously unposted photos I took of Jinafire and Heath. I thought that I might post them around now because of the romantic holiday times. n_n

How lovely
Hello Darling~

AREN'T THEY CUTE TOGETHER
Hugs

I was super excited today because Top Gear was finally showing the new episode that had Hiddles as the Star in the Reasonably Priced Car!
Forever driving in puddles
It aired last week across the pond, but didn't show here until this week. I know that I could have found it online somewhere, but I decided to wait and watch it on tv all official like. xD
The interview was amazing too! I loved how they were talking about the Jaguar #GoodToBeBad ad campaign that he's a part of, and how he was acting all cool and collected for the shoot while up in the helicopter:
Acting:
here to drink tea and entice ladies

Considering how bad I felt today, which was at least a bit better than yesterday, I was especially excited to have that to watch today! Luckily too I had the day off today because it's a holiday (President's Day).
I'm going to stay home from work tomorrow too, since while I usually am ok with just pushing through work no matter how crappy I feel, these last couple of days are not those kind of days.

I was really excited to watch the final bit of Olympics ice dancing, cuddled up with Scottie. I thought Meryl Davis and Charlie White had a really nice performance, and I have to say that I was in love with her outfit. So sparkly! Also, while I loved their performance, I had to laugh whenever her skirt would go fluttering in front of his face in lifts. What's visability? Not that it was necessary, and not that it was blocking his view for long, but it amused me anyway. xD
I also loved Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir! Their performance was really nice.
Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani's performance was a lot of fun! I wasn't sold on it when it started, because of the song choice. But then it went from the first Michael Jackson song to Man in the Mirror, which will now forever make me smile because I've heard Hiddles sing it, and shoot there is a gif of it on my journal RIGHT NOW in an entry with him singing it (Priorities I haz dem)... And then they went to Thriller and I love that song, and so I got more into it as it went. Also really liked the costume change he did mid performance. Not as good of a performance as others but I thought it was a lot of fun.
When Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalap came on I was like IS SHE THE BLACK SWAN and she was. Scottie said that they did really good, but it seemed like they needed more practice to get their great individual things to flow together, and that if they were early in their career that they'd end up being more of a threat later. And then they said that she was only 19, and he was 22, and that we'd be sure to see more of them, so he totes called that.

Also, I was just on DeviantArt. I went and poked around and noticed that people have been commenting on my stuff, and putting my stuff in faves and I had absolutely no idea. xD I've been a member of DA for more than 10 years, but for the most part I never uploaded anything until recently. I have a whole crapload of things in the notices thing that I've been meaning to clear out that have built up over those 10 years, though for some reason it didn't occur to me that was where I needed to be looking at for activity on my stuff. I felt like I was in a bubble and that nobody saw anything I put there. Not true, I was just unintentially ignoring people! Erm, oops.

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.

So I've been meaning to unbox the I <3 Shoes Cleo that I'd bought a little bit ago, especially since I've been working on my Loki sculpt! I like to have Heath and Abbey posed with Pony!Loki, Heath because of his sculpt and Abbey because of her ice- but I think Cleo would also be fun to have with Loki because of her character! xD

Here are some pictures of the box art and her before unboxing:
Boxed pictures )

She had some intense helmet hair. It was pretty much solid with the amount of glue in it! I washed it out with warm water and a tiny bit of dish soap. I don't usually try to wash all of the glue out, I think it's ok to leave a little bit to help manage the hair. One weird thing was that when I started to wash the hair, some of it ended up coming out in my hands! It wasn't attached to the head, it was actually glued to the other hair. I think it was actually just cut from the bangs based on the location, but it was weird. She didn't have thin hair, or bald spots or anything like that, so it was ok. Disconcerting when I was washing it though and I wasn't sure where the hair was supposed to be!
One picture before hair washing )

Now here she is, unboxed with freshly washed hair. :3
She comes with a lot of accessories because that's what what sort selection that doll comes with, but my most favorite part is her black bracelet. It's a tiny black snake eating it's tail. xD
What are you looking at?
I am gorgeous

She comes with an extra pair of earrings.
More earrings for me? )

She also comes with sunglasses, a shopping bag (it's just made of paper though), and two extra pairs of shoes.
Shopping trip
Shopping trip!

Contemplative
I wonder what else I should buy...

I've been having fun watching the Olympics today! I'm all about figure skating, so that's been exciting. I really liked Jason Brown's performance, I was so sad for him when he fell! For other single performances I was really impressed by Julia Lipnitskaia's program. So beautiful!

I also watched some of the other events, snowboarding and the biathalon. I started the day by watching the women's Japan vs Sweden hockey game.

Currently watching Helix!

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
