My tablet stop charging Monday morning (I assume the problem started overnight as it was at 11% charge after being plugged in all night). Apparently this is a very common issue with the device, either with the cable or the battery. Wacom got me setup with shipping information to exchange the tablet and I sent it off on Monday afternoon. I really hope Wacom can get this problem fixed because I don’t think I could fill this gap with another tablet Q.Q
Yay! I’m early this time :D It’s been my goal to have the chibi ready to post midnight on Friday, and I think the new tablet has helped a ton :D Not only can I complete the chibis faster, but I can do it from pretty much anywhere :3 ANYWAYS This chibi is off my […]
New tablet has arrived! I named it “Cornelia” to go along with my Julius Caesar theme as it really should be the device that makes friends between the PCs and the mobile devices *nods*
Fear is a terrible, insidious thing. It taints and stains everything it touches. If you let fear start driving some of your decisions, sooner or later it will drive them all.
Another quote from the latest Dresden novel that felt particularly poignant.
Well I’m super late getting this week’s chibi done. I’ve been all but consumed with this new project I’m working on. But! Always better late than never :) This week’s chibi is for my friend Dallian who has subbed in for our podcast so many times he’s practically a full-fledged member of the cast. He […]
I’ve more or less agreed to help out with a project some of my friends are doing. It’s going to require quite a lot of artwork, and will be heavy on animation. I’m a little intimidated and really excited about the whole thing. Hopefully it won’t interrupt my Chibi schedule too much—I might even use it as an excuse to share what I’m working on :P
The question of whether computers can think is just like the question of whether submarines can swim.
Dijkstra has some of my favorite quotes of all time; they’re generally both witty and though-provoking. As a computer scientist I’ve dealt with AI’s some, mostly in video games. I know how complex and “intelligent” algorithms can get, but I never bought into the whole “rogue AI” concept that has proliferated in the SciFi industry. […]
Just an FYI if anyone is looking for something fun and free to do online right now…
LEGO Minifigures Online is doing an open beta (I managed to get into the alpha a while back) and it looks like they’re going to do a Free-to-play model with “Membership” options that unlock special parts of the game for you.
I will be tooling around in it for the next few days most likely. Apparently my in-game name is “Cuddly.”
Welp, I just ordered a Wacom Cintiq Companion. I would love to say it’s a decision I’ve been contemplating for months, but apparently I’m just not that patient. I have, however, been giving it serious critical thought for a few weeks now, and after considering all my options I felt that the Companion was the […]
I really need to practice patience more…
Again, cutting it a little close here, but I made it. This is a stand alone version of my friend Ashgar. It turns out he’s actually more of a polar bear o.o He’s also a huge fan of the Blue Mage class in the Final Fantasy series, so I made him one :3 Sticker with […]
Love what you do—passion is contagious.
After several discussions with various people about life and purpose, one of my good friends dropped this on me. It was so concise and powerful I needed to officially record and share it.
I have a family. I am already rich beyond measure.
Again, another quote from the most recent Dresden book. This one is taken from Michael Carpenter who is a Knight of the Cross in the story, one of two/three warriors fighting evil and protecting the innocent. He’s probably the most selfless character in the story at this point and a fierce anchor for good. I […]
I decided (with some suggestion from Belghast) to draw separate chibis for Ashgar and myself. I sketched out Ash’s new chibi this week and am waiting to hear back from him about a few details, so I think that will be this coming week’s chibi. However, I had some free time last night during our […]
But they were doughnuts of darkness. Evil, damned doughnuts, tainted by the spawn of darkness... which could obviously be redeemed only by passing through the fiery, cleansing inferno of a wizardly digestive tract.
Oh Harry… Quote taken from Skin Game by Jim Butcher :)
My Mechari Stalker enjoying some free time in Derdune.
As a part of leveling up Outfitter (crafting) in Wildstar, you are asked to find the Darkspire Slank Pump Schematic to complete the Ellevar Outfitter Tech Tree node. This pattern drops off of Darkspire Hoarder Slanks in Ellevar.
Just FYI, I setup a Redbubble account to post buyable stickers of all the chibis I make. I’ve got the ones I’ve done for Chibi Friday as well as the ones I made for the AggroChat podcast up there as well. Feel free to buy a few if you like, and stay tuned as I add more content :D
