I probably could have done a better paint job on this, in all honesty, but this blue is REALLY hard to work with, the gradients dried looking choppy and the yellow doesn’t cover at all. So I gave up before I trashed him somehow.

Sculpting high detail minis is FREAKING HARD.

But I love his tail. -^- his tail is adorable.

A dragon miniature figure I’ve been tinkering with, per Jenna’s request. Its not much bigger than my Dinosaur minis from before, but this one is scaled, and a ton more detailed. With the dino’s, I painted in the details, I didn’t sculpt them, and the sculpture class I took in college never covered texture, so its been touch and go learning as I go through sculptures. I’d like to think each one looks better than the last, but then again what do I know :|

Supposed to be a Blue Dragon from Dungeons and Dragons. Not sure if it worked out that way. He’s baking now, but I’m hoping to finish him up tonight.

Came back from hunting this weekend to find a text from my former manager’s husband, telling me I had till the end of the month to get my horse off their property. Ten days to move a horse to God knows where, with no horse trailer. No clue what instigated this, but I’m guessing it was her doing, because in the last three months she went from being great friends with me and Jenna to firing me to save her job and treating Jen (who still works there) like dog shit.

Luckily my brother-in-laws mother has horses, and she let me put Sonnet there, at least until I find something else. And she lives riding distance from Chris, so…YAY PONY RIDES! <3

This horse is so full of go, its not even funny. Its very hard to tell when she goes from a walk to a trot, cause she walks super fast as it is. And in spite of being ridden on the road befoooore…she demonstrated a fantastic (and random) fear for mailboxes. It wouldn’t’ have been weird if we hadn’t been half way there, and thus having passed at least a dozen mailboxes before her spasms started. Its amazing how fast a horse can get its but from behind it to in front of it when trying to keep their eyes on something XD

Otherwise, the ride was fun. I’m glad she’s with someone I know, it will make going to see her easier. And now i can go riding with my sister, which will be nice cause riding alone gets boring fast when you have no clue where to go :|

I tried to post this last night, but our internet is atrocious -.- Trying again.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOARFEATHERS

I’ve been planning this damned cake for almost a year, since my sister sent me a link to this blog about how someone made a dragon cake. It was most insightful.

Do I have too much time on my hands? Yes I do…..buried under all the excess frosting.

And if we were to quote the movie, Smaug would be saying “I am fire. I am Death. I look FANTASTIC in hot pink!”….

Ok, probably not, but I used a ton of red food coloring and it still came out pink so I finally gave up…And covered it up under half a bottle of golden glitter sprinkles, a lego bilbo, almond teeth, and a sixlet pearl arken…candy….I’m gonna stop now.

These are the first beads I made, before I started branching out to other critters. I posted some pictures of them before, but a few of them were unfinished when I did that, and these pictures are prettier. And most of them are currently for sale at my Etsy shop (which is empty and simple right now. I&#8217;m working on that :|)The Ankylosaurus, Sauropod and Plesiosaur are on short strings, for phone charms or DS or Tablet charms. The Parasaurolophus and Pliosaur are on longer strings, and work great hanging in windows, or from rear-view mirrors in cars. But the strings are easily adjusted to any length on request.The Tyrannosaurus was sold at RMFC, but I plan to make more. Until I have an army of little rexes O^O&#8230;Ok, maybe not that many more :|The Spinosaurus and Tryke have not been posted yet.Check them out here! Customs are also available by commission.

More beads!

Why, yes, I am going near-sighted.

The labrador and orcas were A. a gift for my aunt/grandmother, respectively, and B. a good test for jewelry over charm beads :| Though there’s really no significant difference in making them.

The third bead was much larger than most of my others, but it was super fun; Commissioned by RancidDinosaur @ Rocky Mountain Fur Con on August 8th…or 9th…whatever, it was that weekend :|

Now excuse me while I kick myself for not getting better pictures of it, cause that bead was awesome :|

A mess of beads I’ve been making since early July. And these are only the finished ones, there’s still a few more that haven’t been painted yet X__X And a few I wanted to try to cast before I even started THAT step.

Not many phones (if any) have charm slots on them anymore, but heck, the longer ones hang real nice from the rear view mirror, and apparently they make pretty neat DS charms too :| And then I’ve been exploring the possible earring and necklace potential, that worked out pretty well too, but that will be a different post.

As attached as I’ve been to each of these, they’ll all be up on etsy the minute I have some money to post things again…I’ll probably link it here when that rolls around :|

Kill me X__X People are so freaking hard as it is, but then I have to go and decide I need some silly dynamic angle instead of just a portrait.
Rough sketch and shading test for a painting I REALLY NEED TO GET DONE tonight. That I probably should have been working on all week, but the fact that it was people made it too daunting to start.
Though&#8230;I suppose it didn&#8217;t turn out too bad, considering :| The shading made AAAAAAALL the difference.
Someone is a little too cheery for a guy with a busted eye and a bloody sword :|
