I did actually consider a goblin, but I went with the Gnome insted

Alas, my creations are of the marginal Photoshopping milieu. The first one all started because Elysium had dropped off the face of teh Internets, as chronicled in this thread. Then, a certain so-and-so suggested:

So then, boom!

Not sure what prompted the following:

Here is Saturday's project, a worktable for my drill press. I still need to get the fence put together but I'm going to wait until I get my router table set up because it'll be a pain to route the dado for the t-track otherwise. The circle is a replaceable insert; actually on the right side you can see a few of the replacements I cut out. I had planned on leaving it square cornered and wrapping it in oak to protect the edges, but for crotch safety I decided to round the corners off.

Drools. That's a nice table you got there, mister.

Thanks! It was actually your post in the Random Non-Sequitur thread that lead me to post it.

Aww, shucks! Don't tell my husband I was ogling your tools.

You created that Tempest? That's awesome. At first I wondered how the heck did they manage to take pictures of galaxies merging. Then I saw the Gyr unit and realized that this is clearly a simulation. Do you work with such mega computers?

Clearly, TempestBlayze=GOD. Didn't you know this already.

And a vengeful one at that.

God does not play dice with the universe, but TempestBlayze does.

I've been slacking on my art stuff the past couple weeks, so tonight I decided to buckle down and get some work done modeling that lizard man head I started before. I think it's really coming along pretty well.

now if I remember correctly you can also generate this (or have it generate itself) in geometry wars (1 and 2) :p. at least thats what it looks like when two of the black hole things converge

So I want to keep my currently-playing-fanart thing going, but Alpha Protocol is so bland in the aesthetic department that I can't seem to get inspired. What am I going to do, draw a picture of someone crouching behind a crate? Maybe hanging out in a swanky apartment? Maybe just draw a fight between Sis and Oren Dang?

Or squatting in front of an enemy "invisible" while he looks around in confusion.

Deck finished, here's a sample:

Sketch I drew for LadyRockford for her retirement from our Chicagoland DnDnD group, Synergistic Enterprises, LLC. It's of our first campaign, Keep On The Shadowfell, aka Team Building Exercise 2009. I drew each character separately then scanned them and traced them in Illustrator. My hope was to make a really big printout of it, but Kinkos' online printing only goes up to 11" x 17", as far as I can tell. So, I probably could have drawn it altogether.

It's all one big inside joke so I could explain and then you'll think, "Why is that funny?" Because we start several beers in, that's why! I'll at least say who everyone is. From left to right: McChuck aka Adrik - Dwarf Cleric, wordsmythe aka Lucius - Tiefling Warlord, LadyRockford aka Karra - Eldarin Wizard, SirRockford aka Ronin - Tiefling Warlock, TheWanderer aka DM - Evil clawed hand emerging from dark portal, Grenn aka Ged - Dragonborn (female) Fighter.

I was really confused for a second because I was looking at this on facebook and then I flipped screens and it was the same picture and it took me about 3 seconds to realize I did in fact switch...my brain hurts... I need a nap.

This is what I do with my time. Enjoy. http://vimeo.com/13086442 If you are confused by this, check out http://vimeo.com/11386982 for an introduction to the characters.

I hope you like a lot of meowing.

In fact, I missed the Pittsburgh S&T because of this today. Sorry guys! Catch you next time! I'll have to continue to be an internet forum phantom until then?

I like the animations & clean shifts from scene to scene. The content just confuses the heck outta me though.

Success!

Both those are flippin' brilliant bombsfall.

I also like : Man and Cat at the End of the World

Thanks! Man and Cat actually has had a level of internet fame. It screened in NYC last month as well.
