  1. Welp...  Cyberpunk 2077 has been pushed back to december 10th...  Ah well, gives me an opportunity to get more stuff for my crochet next month.

  2. Been a while since I posted one of these but here's my song of the day, hope you enjoy!!

     

     

  3. To continue doing my OCs based on elements, here's fire.  Calcifer Knight, he's a unicorn who was once part of the royal guard but retired a few years ago.  Still working him out a bit!! :please:  He's kinda grumpy but he knows when to be nice to people.  He's kinda one of those old guys who'll rarely compliment people but when he says it, he really means it.

  5. Sometimes, I wish my mom would speak to me again.  I just wish I didn't have to move out if I wanted to be myself in the first place.

      It was the same with my mother more or less. It could be like dealing with Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde when it came to her sometimes. We never shared the same world view, but she was still my mother and for all the bad, there was also the good. I always tried to take the good with the bad and although she flat out refused that I was transgender and told me to "snap out of it", it was always more disappointment than anger I felt in regards to her over the issue.

      Throughout the years after I told her and things returned to how they were, I kept everything about my intended transition secret from her and never brought the subject up again. I intended to bring the subject up with her again once I had my own space and was transitioning comfortably. I spent a lot of time trying to think of the best way to go about it and to make her understand so that she could still be a part of my life.

      However. I never got that chance. She died of cancer back in late 2018. On one hand, it saves me the pain and fear of hurting her about it all. But on the other, I wanted her to know and understand.

      I think for my mom, it's more from a place of anger.  Before I moved out of her place, she used to go on these rants about how trans people were ugly and how she was the victim and how much it hurt her to see me become ugly.  I say to that that I prefer being ugly, happy and alive over being miserable and pretty and probably mentally worse off.  When I came out, we had an argument but at that point, I had already moved out.  So instead she drove over to my nurse's office and dropped everything off that was remotely mine that she was hanging onto for me.  She even gave me back paintings I had made for her birthday a long time ago.

      She's a very stubborn person and saw my need for going to a therapist as a weakness, so she got especially angry at me when I suggested she talk to my therapist at the time to help her sort out her feelings.  Well she wouldn't go, she's not crazy and how dare I her confused daughter suggest she go to therapy?  Sometimes I hope that maybe she'd realize that her reaction was wrong but I figure she doesn't care anymore because she's not one to let go of a grudge easily.

      It's funny to think of that because of the values she holds priority over, dissuade that sort of behaviour.  Whenever I tried to talk to her about how our culture was accepting of two-spirit people, she would automatically say it's meant for something else and how I wasn't a leader in any regards.  She's a confusing person to talk to, to put it lightly.

      The things I would give to possess some kind of miracle mallet to bop some folks on the head just to make them see some sort of sense. I would have probably broken the thing through over use by now.

      I'm definitely looking into getting it once it's released. From what I've seen of it so far, it looks awesome! :pinkie:

      I think the only thing I'm disappointed in for this game is that they haven't included the Bozos in the game from what they've shown but I guess that's a good thing lol, but even then it isn't that big of a deal.  I can't wait for this game to come out!!!!

  10. I've been putting it off for a while but I decided I might as well redraw Sage while I was still drawing.  I couldn't really decide which other element-inspired oc to draw so I'll just stick with what I know I've made for now.  Turned out ok, still need to practice drawing legs and manes though, I kinda like the whole drawing the shoulder blade thing but I should probably practice with that too!!  First time in a while, drawing two things in the same day, feels nice!!!

  11. Made a new pony OC, her name is Briny Moss!!!  I'm still working on her but I think she turned out nicely.  I was thinking of making an OC based off of each element.  Sage is Earth, Briny is water, just need to make three more for fire, air and spirit.  Yes, I'm counting spirit as an element even though it may technically not be an element. :pistachio:

    Kinda trying to change the way I draw ponies a little bit, still something I'm experimenting with for now.  Still, it's nice to draw ponies again!!

  12. Well, here's my song of the day!  Another playlist today.  Hope you enjoy and are having a good day!!

     

     

  13. Here's a playlist since it's Halloween season, I guess this is my song of the day!!!  Hope you enjoy!!

     

     

  14. Anyone paying attention to the recent news for Dragon Age 4?  Who do you think the huge guy with the massive shoulder pads and cape is?  I've been mentally calling him the "over-exaggerated 80's power suit guy".  What did you think of the most recent video for the game?  Got any theories?

      I wanna be hyped for DA4 but I'm worried about EA meddling like what they did to Andromeda x.x

      This is concept art so he could be anything. I missed the cape.

      I'm hopeful that EA AND Bioware have learned from Andromeda, though if Anthem's anything, it shows that they probably haven't but I'm hopeful that maybe they'll get their shit together.  I guess I'm in the minority when I say that Andromeda's a good game, not as great as the original ME trilogy was but it has it's perks.  I enjoyed playing it even though there were plenty of rough patches but that game had BIG shoes to fill and the shaky release they had didn't really help things in the quality of the overall game.

      Patrick Weekes has said that most of the concept art they've shown might've been changed or cancelled completely, so maybe the guy with the huge shoulder pads was changed since then???  I hope so...  I guess he was more likely wearing a cloak but "cape" came to mind first lol

  15. Here's my "song" of the day, have a whole playlist!  Can you tell that I'm already ready for halloween?  I'm done with summer, I hope the weather in my area can make up for the lack of autumn last year and give us over here an autumn for once lol...  

     

     

  16. Here's my song of the day!  Hope you enjoy!!!  Remember to stay hydrated~!!!!

      Practice helps and studying shapes, nothing's going to be perfect the first time and I find it helps to see humour in your art if it isn't up to your standards.  It's better to laugh at mistakes than to let them consume you

      Ah ok, that's understandable, sorry to hear that!

  23. Can someone help me with this?  I'm trying to sketch out a new profile pic thing for my oc Sage but I'm not really sure how to go about actually drawing him clapping???  He's supposed to be laughing and clapping at the same time?  His muzzle looks kinda odd now but hopefully it won't look as out of place when I start actually drawing it.  Any ideas?  idk what I'm doing with his teeth though, they kinda look like barney the dinosaur's teeth right now lol...

      After watching a few gifs of ponies clapping in the direction I want, kinda worked on it a bit?  idk...  I'm ready to simply give up and move on with the piece?  Could probably work on the placement of the feathering on that one leg, looks a bit wonky to me once I think about it...

      What am I doing..PNG

      Fixed it up a bit, I'm going to move on with it...

  24. Haven't drawn in a while so I drew Sage!!  Haven't drawn him in a while, nice to do so again.  The lineart's a bit wonky to me but I like how it turned out!!
