Working on hair for the doll - making the wefts myself from some yarn I bought several years back. Wouldn’t she look better with a face?
You can help me get embroidery software again by visiting my GoFundMe campaign, and even get a pattern to make a doll of your own for kicking in $10!

Before my computer died, I was working on creating some designs from Portal.  This is an example of one I managed to finish - but I won’t be able to make more until I can get new embroidery software.
I’ve started a gofundme campaign to help raise the money for the software.  If you donate at least $5 I’ll give you a coupon to use on my etsy store for 20% off any and all purchases that will never expire - and that includes these Portal themed patches when I’m able to list them!

I’ve been wanting to make a doll pattern for awhile so that I can make miniature sized cosplay outfits, and I finally got around to working on the body.  I’m pretty happy with it for the most part, she’s got a bit of a cameltoe that I think I know how to correct, and I’m going to make her knees a touch narrower, but I’m diggin that booty.
She’s about 15” tall and currently constructed out of muslin - will have to see if the local fabric store carries dollskin when I go on Wednesday.

Back when we had money coming in that was in excess of what we needed, we backed the Relic Knights kickstarter and got a bunch of minis.  I claimed the Noh Empire faction… I wanted to see if I could do a painting style that made the models look like they were wood-block prints a la Ukiyo-e.  So, here’s my first test paint to try it out.

brossuno said: I don't know if I can go twice, but that's a lot of palettes! What about Chris Lightfellow from Suikoden 3 in palette No.71. If not, that's understandable. These are all great anyway! Thanks.

Concept Cookie  has had some fun looking exercises that I’ve been meaning to try, and hey Candies!
I had the hardest time with the sucker - trying to get the texture of the sugar strands.  The red vine was the quickest.

Now I’m hungry.

big hero 6, frozen and rapunzel have gotten a lot of attention for disney reusing lead female character designs, but I feel like pointing out that they’ve  been doing it for years.  I think with the three most recent examples, being 3d and back to back releases just makes the copy pasta more obvious.  
They do  manage to pull out some more interesting designs every now and then, which I’ve made sure to include some in this too.  And while most of the characters that do deviate from the mold are the ones of ethnicity other than caucasian, there are two that stand out to me.  Megara, despite being European, breaks the mold a bit,  and Tiana, despite being African, fits the mold almost perfectly, other than the width of her nose.
I’d rather people not get angry over something like this, but instead be inspired to do better in their own work.  Strive to tell stories with real people in them - people that are diverse, not just in what they look like, but how they act, and what they do.

So, Nick.com STILL hasnt posted the premiere of book 3.  I’ve unfollowed Korranation here on tumblr, and I will unfollow anyone who posts gifs, images or other spoilers before the nick.com uploads each week.

I don’t know if I’ll keep these up or not, but hey, book 3 was when I did them for the original series, yeah?
The way I see it, book 3 is either gonna be awesome, or jump the shark so hard that the show won’t be able to redeem itself.  
I’m convinced that had books 1 and 2 been given full 26 episode arcs, they would have been so much better.  So For this year’s Nanowrimo, I may work on what I’ll call Korra Bridged (ya know, like  the opposite of abridged) as at least an outline if not a script.
A brief note, previously on these I used a term for the Avatar fandom that was based on a slur, and while it was a word we ourselves embraced, I’ve stopped using it.  And since nothing rolls off the tongue quite as well, Imma just call all the fans Avatars.  OK?
