My interests focus mostly on animation, illustration, the video game industry and related fields. I live fairly carefree and watch a lot of cartoons, read lots of comics and am professionally involved in video games. If you've got time to spare, drop me a message.

WHOOPS sorry i never responded but I don't like clogging up the GvG with too much chatting...
Anyway, yeah I it was an art history class and it was only for 3 weeks but it was GREAT. I'd love to go back someday and see some of the stuff I missed first time around. Also the Uffizi is pretty sweet, I didn't get a chance to go to Florence but I wish I had.

Didn't even finish the first episode of Black Mirror despite many strong recommendations from friends.
It seems like we have similar reasons for not particularly liking it, haha!
It's nice to see someone else share my feelings. C':

LMAO, you don't understand. I got this game when it first came out and I barely beat the main game back in April. Started the DLC stuff and only just beat Trespasser last week. For some reason I thought it'd be a good idea to do it all over again so I started a new game and I'm pretty much making the same choices but romancing Iron Bull this time but yes.. my choices.. I think I'll just PM that bit before I write a whole essay in your comment box? sweatdrop

It looks like you were right about me and the color blue. sweatdrop

    Next, other than adding some beads, not sure. Might make another practice one before and see what I features I can make.
    The idea of a marionette version has some merit. The only difficult part would be making the loops for the controls. The joints would be easy though, it would just have to be a thin base to start, maybe four loops total. One for each limb and the rest wrapped into the head.
    Though if I take up circle knitting again the Jellyfish would be a place to go. They work best with colorful yarn and pastels though.

    Start it like making a skein, size depends what i wrap it on for measurement. the last one was done on my arm, hand to elbow.
    Then I find where I want it and bind the neck, then pull the arms up, bind them, and separate the remainder for the legs before wrapping them back together for the torso. Before I fully wrap the arms normally measure where they'll fall and fold it back and bing again.
    The neck tends to be a bit thick usually because, like the head, it's the full amount of yarn from the original. It works for the head due to the size.
    I've tried starting with a small ball for the head but the neck tends to be a single strand to start that that's a lot of wrapping to thicken and keep from wobbling.
    Ones with a "skeleton" tend to work the best since the limbs are not flopping about as you work though.
    But they loose that soft floppy feel in the end.
    Paperclip voodoo dolls with pins were fun to make for a while.
    I gave them all away.

    That one is done. I'll make a new one. Easier to loop the beads in and keep it as one continuous thread than to sew them in.
    I've had enough practice with dolls to be able to make long hair, joints, and feet. But sometimes I kind of forget that while making them >__>
    Also the hair tends to be made of multiple threads instead of one, but I'm sure I could do it if I tried.
    I still have issues with necks tough.
    I may just need to also take pictures during the day if I want to put them into scenery and situations.
    The paper will work great for getting details though owo

    Hah, I didn't even think about that. It did turn out to be a little hard to photograph because of it's darkness. But I guess shadows are hard to photograph =B
    I'mma get some beads at some point, loop them in for eyes. If I can find not too tacky hearts I'll work one into the chest.
    And no worries, busy happens.
    Like, a lot.

    It's a good shade of brown honestly. I'm so-so on the green in that shade myself, though I do like it better than toxic.
    Hey, query, did you see the little yarn person I made? Not sure if I missed a response or what. I kinda just remembered I made it and sent pictures. OR at least I think I did. I was tired at the end of that night.

    On an aside, I am still pleasantly surprised by how well your browns appear to match.
