I am on a bus. It is very late. I have a handleless wood file which I drum on my head in time with the tapping of my foot. The seat beside me is vacant and, although the bus is quite full, I am only aware of one other person, an old Chinese woman who sits directly behind me. I gaze out of the window at the late-night restaurants, and hope I am in time to catch one open, but my watch reveals that it is past one o’clock, so I am already too late. We pass some which appear to be open, and I feel a strong urge to get off but I suppress it until we are far past. I decide to get off before my stop as it is quicker to walk from here. The road ahead is dark and dead and, as I proceed, I am uncertain that this is actually the right way after all, but I can always work out where I am when I get to the end. I can see lights up ahead now, so I decide to cycle as it will be much quicker. I sense movement far behind me and hear a child calling out in the distance, ‘Daddy, Daddy’. I cycle on regardless, towards the lights, but as the child gets nearer I realise in horror that he is calling to me. I pedal frantically in an attempt to escape but the harder I do so the cruder my bike becomes until, finally, I must pick it up and run. The child is almost upon me now so I give up flight and turn to face him. He is pushing a huge, black thing on stone wheels, it is hideously medieval. ‘Mummy wants to make some changes to you’ he intones solemnly. I scream in panic and hurl my bicycle at him, by now nothing but a flimsy piece of cardboard.
Life Drawing Classes are back on! Here are a couple of images form my first session.. it’s been a while..
I’ve been wasting hours on Terraria (which is an awesome game btw) and here’s the result, my own castle 😀 (click on the image to get a full-size version)
This was all mined and constructed in-game using my trusy Molten Pick-axe, Molten Ham-Axe, Jet-Boots and Ivy Whip. My two boys helped me a bit too, especially on the mining (those blue dungeon bricks are damn tedious to mine!) 😉
If you want to download the Terraria world file, here it is (zipped up for efficiency, make sure you unzip it before using it!):
N.B. Please be careful when copying this world file into your Terraria Worlds folder. Because it’s named WORLD1.WLD it will likely overwrite your own first world file unless you rename it!
Here’s my entry for the Colors! 102nd Weekly Challenge – ‘Sleeping’. You had to draw someone sleeping in a weird position or with a funny facial expression.
Been a bit quiet recently, but here’s my entry for the Colors! 99th Weekly Challenge – ‘Mount Olympus’. It’s supposed to be Zeus showing off to impress another mortal Earth girl! 😉
Now I have to think up a theme for the 100th challenge!! :O
General Von Kloot charging into battle on his two-headed Skroggin.
This is my entry for this weeks Colors! Weekly Challenge. The theme was “Two-Headed Monster”. I toyed with doing a dark and scary thing, but I thought everyone else would go that route so I went for cartoony.
This is my entry for this weeks Colors! Weekly Challenge. The theme was “Opposites”, but because I couldn’t decide what opposite to depict, I tried to depict as many as I could! 😀 I think I managed to get about 12-13 different opposites in there! See how many you can find! 😉
This is a picture I drew of Chun Li from Street-Fighter. She’s not in her traditional SF costume, more of a beach-wear style variant! 😀
Drawn using Colors! on my Nintendo DS.
And here’s a big one!
