Coming Around For Another Pass

Suffice to say, I'm making this my home base once again. It's done the least heinous shit so far. God, when did that become the measure of a site's worth? In any event, fuck it. I locked my FA and lost the key. Better that way.

LLL's Artistic Manifesto

SO as far as I'm concerned, I have a definite aesthetic that goes into my work. These are a few pieces I've nicked that help illustrate my design style and aesthetic. There's a lot of emphasis on line, and direction. More than half the pictures explicitly invoke or are influenced by the same emphas…

Homecoming

It brings me great joy to finally say I'm back on a computer, a real machine, one I built with my own hands. It also brings me joy to inaugurate this machine with a name. I command... THE LIGHTNING'S HAND. What does this mean for you guys? Not too much differently, not yet anyways. Just a butt-ton…

The Weasyl Desert

So that's a couple artists I've read about now who have sworn off Weasyl in favor of either returning to FA or trying out FN. I certainly wish luck to those trying the latter, since new niches can always be carved into the pliant rock face of this fandom. But it puzzles me when people return to the…

Mind the Dust

SOrry all! Just vacating my current image dumps so I can take on more. I am indeed doing original work, it's just few and far between I find the time to draw. Bear with me, friends! The best is yet to be. OH AND ALSO If i don't answer anything right away? Absolutely nothing personal, friends, pleas…

Tonal Shift

Hey guys. If you haven't already been able to tell, I'm going to be uploading pieces of a passion project I've been working on. People who are watching me for macro content, you don't have to worry about anything. That's not going away. I'm just shifting focus to this. You might even like what you…

Sofurry Status?

I heard some months ago to steer clear of that site in particular as being hit by a DDoS, and being buggy besides. Anyone know if it's good to go back to?

Maverick, Get Back In The Fight

"Talk to me, Goose..." After reaching something of a tipping point, I've come to realize I can't change facts, but I AM going to face them head on. Life doesn't disengage when you do, yeah? I'm significantly more prepared than I was six years ago. No more sadness and sorrow. The only way I'm going…

Blown Out

I just got some devastating news back. I really can't work on anything in this state. I'm sorry, the big AC picture I planned and commissions are just...going to have to wait a bit until I can cope. But mostly i'm just sorry.

HOLY MAN-MASHING MONDAY

I MADE AN ACTUAL SORT OF TOS. For commissioning me and stuff. IT'S SHITTY AND SORTA READS LIKE A MANIFESTO, BUT IT'S MINE.

TO COMMISSION A BOOKMAN

You must first invent the universe So! Now that i'm home, I can properly take some commission work on the side. Do note that I have a job, so time during my day will mostly be taken up with that effort. Nonetheless, I often have time enough to practice my craft, so by all means, give me your ideas…

Two Weeks (AC 15)

TWO WEEKS TWO WWWEEEEEKS Okay but for real. The move a week later really messed me up, but I should be all set. Room squared away at the Doubletree (which I...think is One Bigelow Square?? Correct me if I'm wrong please). I'm rooming with this dragon-type here, and we're probably gonna see ALL THE…

Roads Hath No Fury...

As a woman scorned. So I saw Fury Road and I think the hype is totally justified, and any complaints from the 'manosphere' about feminist agendas being pushed down the collective throat are hilariously unfounded. If this is what feminist films look like, then sign me the fuck up. Furiosa is a brill…

RPGers! Favorite system?

Hey guys! I really want to run a game with a certain homebrew setting, but I've never DMed before and I still need a ton of dice. I'm looking at FATE, M&M, and Exalted buuuut I totally want your opinion on this! What's a fairly user-friendly system?

MY PARENTS ARE DEAD - THE JOURNAL

Hey! Scrolling through a couple character profiles on Weasyl here had me wondering about a popular background option for those people: Everyone seems to have dead parents. Talk to me about this. I'm honestly guilty of it myself with at least a few of my characters. What compels you as a player or w…

Where I'm At!

HI DUDES. A journal is probably not what you want from me. MORE ART, says you, and you will have it! In time. Here's how things are going. my house still has a dumpster and a pod in front of it. I'd estimate we're at 90% completion. They have to paint and mount a door on the basement, get us some r…

So i watched the Ghost video by Mystery Skulls

It was super-nifty! But i feel really bad, if i understand the subtext correctly! D: that green-eyed monster...well. as far as Lewis goes... I just have a strong sense of paying the dead their due.

Ask the Cast!

was doing an Ask journal, and now I wanted to do one too! Siva, Wei Xiu, Gaine, Dannik, the LLL, and Commander B are all open game for (just about) any of your questions!

Six More Months

That's how long my insurance agent says it will take until my house is nearly livable again. That's the better half of a year. That's the dead of February . Fuck the insurance industry.

Reluctantly I Return

Well, everyone has to come back to their daily lives at some time. I had rather a lot of fun this weekend. It always hurts when I have to leave. That's the bad part of any of these gatherings I attend! The ephemeral nature of our meetings is laid bare to me when the time comes to depart. Were that…

TheMightyBookman’s avatar

What do you guys want to see from me?

WYSIWYG. I want some artistic direction, because as fun as drifting aimlessly with nothing to constrain me but imagination is, I need a direction to go IN. Not that I even have a scanner, so the best you're likely to get from me are shitty jpegs. (This isn't a specific request journal. Just want th…

Hope You Guys Like Steampunk

Cause this, sad to say, is the only place I trust enough to consider using as a feedback tool for my alternate universe design and development progress! That says less about this site, and far more on the bloated monolith of toadyism and theft that is DeviantArt. The fact I am here exclusively says…

Political Black Sheep

As the only liberal in a family of conservatives, it begins to feel more and more like I'm Lex Luthor sitting at the Superman family table. They talk about things like liberal bias in the media, and the middle east is a garbage culture, and America is SO GREAT and if you disagree you're a horrible…

I suppose it bears mentioning

The night of the fire, I discovered that Simon Strange and Matt frank finished up the final work on our collaborative kaiju.

A Wise Friend Once Said

"Impossible is just a word to make people feel better when they quit."

We laid the lost cat to rest, in a warm sunny…

A Hair's Breadth

At about 12:45 last night, I woke to the sound of my brother shouting. My house was filled with smoke. I had just enough time to run out of the house before the living room caught fire. My life is currently packed and stinking of fire in the back of my car. I lost one of my cats to the smoke. All m…

Star Wars: ABY and BBY

Fellow nerds! I have a question about dates and years ('galactic cycles') in the Star Wars universe. It has been a common practice to date movies and expanded or extraneous events around the time of the first Star Wars movie, labeled "0 Before/After the Battle of Yavin. This is done meta-fictionall…

Call me a dick

But wouldn't it kind of be nice if Weasyl maintained some kind of bar to be set, vis a vis having an account here? I'm almost certainly being an elitist asshole by saying so, but the quality of work here is really pretty good compared to the glut of work inundating FA. Even the worst stuff I've see…
