Doing especially poorly lately. The nights are hard to get through, and when I do fall asleep, there are the dreams.

This piece is entitled “Completely Failing to Remember Brit Nicorose's Wildstar Outfit while Stuck at Maxx's Office with Nothing but my Blue Pencil and his Absent Boss' Pre-inked 0.2 Rotring,” but it really should be called “Never Agree to Keep Maxx Company when he's Babysitting his Empty Office for Storefront Gate Installation because you will Still be There at 11PM 'cos the Gate Guys Came Late and you can't even do your Work because Everything's Packed up by Now we Didn't Think it'd Go on so Long.” On the bright side - wow, those pre-inked Rotrings are boss, even with this one being much wider than my usual nib size.

The scene the pic (which was just a fun sketch I liked that Maxx slapped colour on admirably) depicts is not actually in the fic script - it’ll probably either show up in episode 9, or in the DVD’s deleted scenes…

Aaand this one as well - I only just remembered ‘cos I just tossed up another stupid sketch. Just horribly busy lately, all I’ve got are layers of unfinished sketches. My life is spiraling out of my control and the only things of any certainty are pain and dinnertime Wildstar.

I guess you could say we’re kinda excited for that. (x 2:24)

I forgot about this one when I was reblogging stuff over. *cough* Maxx actually coloured it but I can’t, I just can’t, so here’re the lines instead.

maxxdick really wanted me to post this for some reason. Just a quick and scrappy scribble in his commission (hinthint) sketchbook because - hey, he’d just left it there unattended. The only notable thing about it is that this is one of the very few times I’ve touched lead to paper ever since he got me that CCH…and I promptly spent the first few seconds squinting confusedly at it and manually raising the pad for that 45 degree incline.

Reblogging this over, a quickie that Maxx slapped football-watching flicker on. This was the first international tournament that a team we actually wanted to win did win, which is a strange and new feeling. Really glad some of these veteran German players will have winners medals to top off their careers…I remember all their first World Cups… Q_Q And while I know opinions will differ, also pleased that Miro (THAT IS HOW LONG AGO) now holds that record.

Every now and then I just have to doodle a nude lady…usually when I just can’t draw to save my life. Just super busy and super down these days.

Oop, reblogging this over from the other side: these were a couple of quickies from a couple of months back where I talked about sweet, shy, precious, twirling, trilling, hip-swiveling real-life Disney princess[es]. :|

”- ROLL! ROLL THROUGH THE GATES OF HELL!”

Wildstar continues to endear itself to me with references that shows just how old we all are.

Aaand here are our fourth set of toons - I’m the sad blue one at bottom left. Maxx has a love-hate relationship with the Explorer path…in that he hates it but he loves the path rewards. He did finally settle on it for characterisation in this particular case, and found himself rewarded right in Deradune with THE TREASURE OF RAZORTAIL ISLAND.

MAXX IS GIVING AWAY FREE ART

Last time reblogging this here - ‘COS IT ENDS TOMORROW! I cannot stress how good an offer this is or how good your odds are (‘cos half the notes are me reblogging it daily on my reblog Tumblr. Q_Q). DO THIS, DO THIS, IF YOU DON’T DO THIS, THEN…then, well, I guess you don’t do this, that’s all, BUT YOU REALLY SHOULD.

jundoe:

MAXX IS DOING THIS THING - YOU SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS THING HE IS DOING. IT ENDS ON SUNDAY, SO, YANNOW.

maxxdick:

I’ve hit 100+ followers for whatever baffling reason (OK, so half I know, and the other half is from my quality Transformers comix haha) - thank you so much for your sustained interest and support! Since this tumblr is mostly my art, it’s time for a free raffle!

Up for grabs is ONE DIGITALLY-COLOURED HALF-BODY, exactly in the style of my commissions, worth $27+! This free raffle ends 30th June 2014, 11.59pm EST and will be rolled via Random.org. The winner may choose any simple original or fandom subject - human(oid), robot, anthro, etc.
If the character’s complexity is non-negotiable (eg. fandom), it may be changed to a bust instead - whatever is equivalent in worth.

Our regular Wildstar dinner-theatre continues, with altoholism meaning we’re at level 21, 19, and 15, with another on the way. I swear we got further in beta… RL situations are not abating, so we’ll probably continue in this vein.
As much as we’re avidly enjoying housing Wildstar, playing an MMO regularly again inevitably fills us with wistful memories of City of Heroes/Villains. Our altoholism in CoH was…off the charts, let’s just say, but for a good many years, Espn and Axn remained our respective ostensible mains. Which is the long way round saying here’s a quick pic of Espn from a couple of months back ‘cos I ain’t managed to finish anything new.

So E3 gave us the Grim Fandango remaster, first on PS4/Vita, then probably PC/mobile in the future. How much do I love Grim Fandango? I love it so much that my ask page, for as long as I’ve had a Tumblr, has been titled “Ask me about Grim Fandango - uh, anything.” and now my long game has finally paid off and it’s become relevant again. I love it so much that, for the ‘Describe your favourite game and make it sounds as shitty as possible' meme, my version was “You spend four years being dead.” Grim Fandango was the first game I’d ever bought with my own money (Monkey Island III was the second). Grim Fandango is the game that changed my life, like how Les Miserables was the book that changed my life - except now I can still look Grim Fandango in the eye…er, socket and love it. That’s how much I love Grim Fandango.
I love half the cast too, but I love Eva most. When I was younger, I was always dismayed that we never got a conclusive ending for her - then, when Tim Schafer released the original design document for the 10th Anniversary, I was dismayed to learn that she *spoiler* and we never got to see it. So here’s a quick one to Evaluna. She still loves you. ;)

WC2014: Spain 1-5 Holland

I’ve been waiting twelve (!!) years for Holland to win a major tournament, and this certainly seems like a great chance so far… I still don’t think it’s going to happen though - those twelve years have taught me if they don’t bottle it in the quarters, they’ll bottle it in the semis, etc. etc., but what a thought that is.

Obviously, there’s a lot to abhor about this World Cup, but it’s hard for us not to be captivated by the game itself, anyway. It’s the World Cup. Twelve years ago, that’s how we fell in love, and how it saved our lives. And this one is like a high school reunion for us, except we’ve never been to that high school - so many of these footballers we’ve watched the careers of begin…so many who’ll never make it to another.

(Actually, what I really want is for the Czech Republic to win a major tournament, but that ship sank a long time ago…)

Now that’s Hollish football.

Maxx; guess what we’re watching.
