It being a Friday, its traditionally ‘Game-Night’.
My small social group generally consists of geeks/nerds. For years ( now that I think of it, well over a decade ) we have been playing pen and paper RPG’s consistantly.
Dungeons & Dragons, Legend of the Five Rings, Call of Cthulhu, Werewolf: The Apocalypse, Dark Heresy & Deathwatch. We generally rotate throughout this list with different people running campaigns from time to time.
Tonight, we are continuing a L5R campaign. Fingers-crossed my Tsuruchi Archer Bounty Hunter won’t be killed, or if it comes to that, a heroic demise would be pretty awesome.
Bleh, enough rambling.
Forever a battle…
Trying to get some drawing done but as always, it feels like a never-ending battle to get graphite to paper. I miss the times when I could just doodle and I shall be trying to rediscover how I used to do it.
Primarily, I think I am too hung up on the feeling that my drawing isn’t good enough. This is turn compels me to not draw at all. I need to be less concerned about the end result and just draw. I will improve as time goes by, I just need to spend those hours working to get there.
Started a drawing a few days ago, my ultramarine character from SpaceMarine. Working on the shading now and I’m having trouble getting an even tone.
Surprisingly, I did actually get a lot of stuff done that I would normally procrastinate on.
My computer has been suffering with a dodgy sound-card for a long time now but the instability has escalated to the point where I finally removed the card. Some hunting later yielded a daughter-board for some on-board sound functionality. I’m happy to say that it’s currently installed and working a treat.
I have also gotten some cleaning and tidying done and dismantled the light-box on my drawing table so I can use it again.
Will either start on some doodling or miniature work. Would like to do a Deathwatch Drop-pod. Would definitely be a fun weathering project.
Been doodling an Adeptus Sororitas character but it’s a bit of a mess. Might upload a scan or photo soon.
Out and about plus I got mail!
Nothing hugely important to post about No harm in trying to develop a posting habit though.
While out shopping earlier, I was delighted to find some Cherry Coke! Haven’t seen this stuff in years! Woo hoo. Hope it’s still as good as I remember.
Also, parcel delivery this morning My revoltech Skeleton warrior finally arrived from HobbyLink Japan. Been a while waiting for this one and I’m looking forward to doing some photos soon.
Apologies for crappy photos, camera on my phone is pretty woeful.
A return to doodling
Have finished my 3 months of temporary contract work so I’m currently a free agent.
Will definitely use this free time to get some desperately needed drawing done. Been months since I’ve done anything remotely creative.
A few days to get settled into a new routine and I’ll start doodling again
For my viewing pleasure…
Looking at getting a LED Tv for my room so I can finally play Xbox properly in bed.
Have reserved something decent at Argos and will hopefully pick it up on Thursday when I’m off.
I have Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood still in its wrapping and it’s screaming out to be played.
Still haven’t worked out the actualy logistics of where to put afore-mentioned tv but I’ll work something out.
Ps. I miss drawing
Just uploading a photo via phone as another test. Enjoy the pic of our stupid cat
Test posting via android phone. Works pretty nicely i have to say. This will be useful
The photoshop is now closed.
Finally finished processing all the photos for my cousin’s wedding
Glad it’s all done, the dvd is burned and waiting to be posted.
Been watching 2×2=Shinobuden recently and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I do like random bizzare anime, doubly so when there are ninjas involved.
I miss being able to doodle, I really need to do some soon.
