Okay blogger, WHAT THE FUCK?????
Why are you being such a bitch right now??
Seriously. I can't post comments on anyone's blog, and it's really starting to piss me off. When I try to post, I get stuck in a cycle of having to constantly put in my user name and password, then a captcha, then user name and password, then captcha, etc, etc, etc. And I can never post the comment.
I'm having other issues with blogger as well - like logging in sometimes. Or being able to even go to the blogger website. And not only on my home computer.
I fucking hate you right now blogger.
Anyone else having any problems? I'm about to stab my fucking screen.

I'll show you the process of this drawing. It's of two of my deer on The Endless Forest, Fae and Roe.
First, the sketch. It's a little hard to see, sorry. I typically sketch pretty light.
Next, line art. I do all my lines with a fine point sharpie pen.
On to color!! I start with the lightest colors first. It's easy to add dark over light, but very difficult to go the other way.
More details and color added. Fae, the butterfly colored doe, has around 9 different colors. Several browns, oranges, yellows, peach, white, grey and black. Roe has grey, black, 3 blues, white, beige, and 2 greens. Lots of colors! After I'm finished coloring, I go back and re-line everything.
This drawing took around 2 hours from start to finish. I use Prismacolor colored pencils. This is the technique I use on most of my artwork - traditional that is. My process is a bit different with digital.

I love cross-dressers/transvestites sooooooo much!
That's Prince Poppycock - one of my heros.
Eddie Izzard. My idol.
And I can't leave out Adam Lambert. While not a true tranny, he IS glamtastic!

And Doritos. An island oasis mixed with Doritos.
Damn you Zan, for smelling so icky.
On an unrelated note, I get to go talk to a therapist. Yay. Apparently my regular doc thinks that suicidal ideation warrants a talk with a professional. I think it warrants a piece of pie. Chocolate cream, preferably. But, whatever.
Here, I'll elaborate. Mainly because I've decided that I don't really care what people think about me any more. I'm weird, I'm messed up, I believe strange things, and if you don't like it, then fuck you. Go away. I switched my meds up again - mainly because of the whole "suicidal ideation thing". And because I'm honest with how I feel, I get to go see a therapist. Which to me, is more depressing than depression. See, I don't have any family issues, no big secrets or skeletons in my closet causing me pain, no traumatic childhood.
Nope. So I don't see how a therapist will help. I'm not going to talk and spill my guts and feel magically better. Not going to happen. What will help is getting my brain chemistry balanced. And talking ain't gonna do that.
So I guess this was kinda a rant. Just a little frustrated at the moment.
And now I have to go to the gym and work off the chocolate pie.

Yep. You read that right.
Not to publish in the hopes of making millions of dollars (though that would be nice). But more as a therapeutic purge of thoughts, ideas, my life and observations . . . .musings from the mind of a bipolar, zombie-loving nutcase.
I think it might be a good read.
Who knows, if I ever finish it, maybe someone would actually publish it.

It took me awhile to draft the pattern. I looked at sooooooo many reference pictures of hyenas. After I had the pattern drafted, and the basic plush sewn up, I had to zombify him. See, the hyena is a character named Vosha - a zombie hyena with bat wings. He has just bones for the front legs, muscle showing on his rear right leg, and empty eye sockets. The front legs were the most difficult. I started with all fabric - and hated the look. Then, I did all pipe cleaners but the legs couldn't support the weight of the plush. So I settled on a combo of both fabric and pipe cleaners.
Next, the markings. I did them with markers. Yay! And yes, that's totally a maggot in his eye socket. Just for good measure.

And you know something? I missed it. Missed just getting my thoughts out, sharing my art and plushies here. And missed reading my favorite blogs as well.
I will slowly get back into blogging. Maybe only a couple of posts each week to start. I may even overhaul my blog. Redo the layout . . . . . I'm not sure yet.
I'm sure I will have vent posts, my artwork, plushies, Etsy stuff, and musings on life. I've been doing more creative writing as of late, and it's quite enjoyable. Who knows, maybe I'll share a short story or some poetry.
Or maybe a picture of crabs.
Not the STD crabs. But, like, a real crab.
