Okay, I know I really, really, really shouldn’t be doing this but I am desperate, people, SO. PLEASE PLEASE can anyone tell me what the word for a bird’s claw is and NO IT IS NOT A TALON that is the claw on the BACK of the foot I need to know the word for a bird’s fingers. I know Terry Pratchett mentions it in a Discworld novel but I can’t find it SO if one of you excellent incredibly eloquent people who follow my blog — and I know there are quite a few of you — if ANY of you know what that one word is, please let me know. Thank you.
SO. Inactive for two whole months. New record achieved, I guess. I’ve mostly been stalled due to lack of time. I probably won’t even be able to post again until the summer holidays; I might even have to cancel working on the Dungeons & Dragons backstory comics. *SIGH*
I’m not entirely sure this comic is valid, because so far I haven’t actually come across any glass milk cans at Lonlon Ranch. But hey, it’s funny and I enjoyed drawing it, so whatever.
For those of you who have never played Zelda and therefore don’t get it, glass bottles are often considered one of the most valuable and useful items in the Zelda games. It’s the only container capable of storing consumables in Ocarina of Time : bugs to dig underground, fish to bribe the giant whale beast, poes to sell to the creepy psychic guy, three different types of magic potions, fairies that automatically revive you when you die; and, of course, lonlon milk.
There are only four bottles to collect in the entire game, making them rare and valuable as well as desirable. If you could just get a giant milk can from Lonlon Ranch, it would be able to hold, like, ten fairies, and would pretty much make you invincible.
The idea is right up there with that of strapping a cuckoo to your shield to get a cuckoo swarm to beat up anyone who hits you. Which, now that I’ve mentioned it, I just might draw a comic about. Hmm.
Anyway, I now wish you a good month, as I probably won’t be posting again for a while.
P.S: The text might be a bit blurry, so you should probably click to zoom.
Woo! Masterpiece poem! Awesomeness/Enhanced self-confidence ensues!..I hope it’s readable.
SO. This is technically the blog birthday, even though I started it on a February 29th. It’s been a pretty good first year, I guess, as first years go, and I hope it gets even better.
You may have noticed (you probably didn’t) that I haven’t been tagging my posts. This is because I’m content with the little group of 60+ followers I’ve accumulated, and think it would be kind of stressful catering to a larger community. Which also means that there are only 60+ people who are going to read this, like, ever. 80 at most. So there’s your little ‘I’m speshul’ tip of the hat for the day.
I think it’s also fine now for me to use my real first name, so while I’ll still be going about as Sheikah, those precious few of you who actually care can know me as Isla. (You don’t pronounce the S, for all those of you who are unfamiliar with Scottish geography.)
Anyhoodle. Awesome poem, check. Copyright: Me, by the way. No stealing my geniusness. (Which is now apparently a word.) Have great March holidays, for those of who who get March holidays, and, uh…Happy birthday? I dunno.
P.S: Kudos to the one or two readers who noticed and recognized my use of the word ‘sheeple’. That’s a second ‘I’m so SPESHUL’ hat-tip to you.
I am very bored. (click to enlarge)
P.S. : Buttercup Festival, for when life feels too complicated.
So as you can see, both scanner and tablet are functioning properly again. The image quality is pretty foggy, but there’s not much I can do about that. These are two lighthearted comics I drew a couple weeks ago, which I particularly like because of the style — less distracting detail, more expressive motion.
Hey there, people-who-read-the-stuff-I-post. Been a while, huh? Thing is, I don’t get much time these days for drawing and writing and stuff, so updates may be sparse. And by sparse, I mean like once-a-month or whenever-I-feel-like-it. So…Yeah.
Anyway, I think I’m going to do a series of comics illustrating the first dungeon my new Dungeons and Dragons character has gone through. I’m not sure if I’ll do the entire campaign, because I’ll probably get bored and lose interest by then — in fact, I’ll probably lose interest halfway through the current story arc. But at least it’ll be pretty cool.
So there’s my character right there; as you probably figured, I’m opening with my backstory. These are her earliest memories as a child, blah blah blah. Ran from fire, found by random Elf dude…I bet you can figure out the rest. It’s pretty basic backstory stuff.
Yes, her hair does change colour at night.
Okay. First off, I got braces. Not cool, but I’m going to be doing a comic about it soon. I think. If I don’t keep putting it off too much. You know what, I’m just going to say I will draw it, and now I can’t not do so, because I said I would. Or whatever.
Secondly, I updated the About page. New picture, new text. You can go check it out if you want.
But, thirdly and most importantly, my friend started her own art website, because apparently I inspired her to do so. Aww. Isn’t that cute. Anyway, you should go see it, maybe become a member or something. I’m a member; so maybe I’ll post some drawings on her website only, to force you to go there if you want to see it. BWAHAHAHAHAaren’t I cruel.
Happiness is Art Shaped! Yaaaaaaaaaaay
…Just…Just go check it out, okay?
