Bottom of the Deck – 16/02/16

botdcardEvening everypeoples, it’s been a good day (mostly relaxing with intermittent productivity) and I just had a decent sized meal for a change, so I’m in a good spot right now.

Productivity is slow but steady; I’ve been focusing on my commission. This being an official piece of requested art, I’m doing my best to put as much effort as I can into it. It’s certainly made me more critical of my own work (not that I needed to be) albeit in a more constructive sense than I usually am, and I hope my client will like what I’ve come up with.

I have to say, the past week has been good too, entertainment-wise. I made a concerted effort to wake up extra early on Friday morning to watch Critical Role live for the first time ever. Since I’m not a paying subscriber to Twitch, it didn’t make much difference in what I could do, but at least I didn’t have to wait until today to see it, and I didn’t have to worry about dodging spoilers on Tumblr.

I met up for a family picnic on Sunday, which means I got out of the house for once, and following that we went to see Deadpool. I have not laughed that hard at a movie for at least a year (don’t worry, no spoilers!); the sociopathic comedy starts right in the opening credits and only eases up to let the drama keep the plot rolling. An absolutely hilarious ride from beginning to end, it’s no wonder this film is breaking records. I’ll more than likely go see it again at the end of the month, and considering I don’t normally see the same movie twice at a cinema, that is saying something.

Hot off the heels of Deadpool, I get home that night for the season 3 finale of RWBY and promptly have my heart split in two. For a series that had dark overtones while mostly keeping a lighthearted atmosphere, that episode practically had me in tears it was so powerful. Talk about your downer endings, but I cannot wait for them to get season 4 out; the status quo has been well and truly shaken, so who knows what will happen next?

That all for this week really, I’m going to try and get some writing done tonight, consider this blog post the warm-up. Have a good one.

Ciao for now.

Daily Sketch(es) – 16/01/12

So, there were a few little creative complications over the past few days, and as such I didn’t upload anything. But, here are the daily sketches since Saturday; better late than never.

sbk024Say what you like about Kylo Ren, I think he’s still one of the better characters to come out of the Star Wars franchise in a while, if for no other reason than the fact that he shows a bit of passion for what he does.

The latest season of RWBY is getting really dark, and I am loving it. Pyrrha Nikos’ character arc started out a slow, but the recent decisions she’s had to face have really fleshed her out.

I’ll admit, I didn’t know much regarding David Bowie apart from his collaborations with Queen, but there’s barely¬†a nerd alive who won’t recognise the Goblin King. RIP.

I’m so happy that Critical Role is back for Season 2, loving the new set and the story is set to pick up again. Highlight of the new episode was Scanlan’s duel with Kaley, the new flute player in his old travelling troupe. We’ll see where that leads, nudge nudge, wink wink.

Bloggery stuff later,

Ciao for now.
