    Mori Learns Sculpting Part 2!

    This was just a bit of soft polymer clay that I normally mix with firmer white clay or putty. I don't normally use it by myself, but it was amusingly all I could find in the dark! I'm excited for PAX South this weekend, but I wasn't going to let another few days go by without at least some art! I've also brought a mini sketchbook. :D

    Mori Learns Sculpting Part 2!

    I snuck in an hour or so of giant eye practice while everyone was still asleep in the camper. I love this optivisor light! I understand now that the part of the eye by the nose goes back a lot more than I thought, but it's still hard for me to put into clay. I need to work out how the face curves around by the outside of the eyes too. Little steps, I suppose. I really just need to find someone's face that I can smoosh around to see how things work while I have clay in front of me. Yes, I really tried to take a photo of black clay in the dark. My morning brain, everyone!

    Mori Learns Sculpting Part 2!

    I get you haha! The wedge indentation thing is easy, it's dotting the edges of the eyes and connecting them with those < > that gets me. My hands get a little too shaky when I try to do precise bits, so I've been practicing a few different positions. I basically ended up hunched over to get both of my hands on the desk. I'm going to try to find a little box or stool to sit on to "raise" my desk closer to shoulder level so I can rest my hands on the edge of the desk at a better height. Thank you! <3 I've got a couple appointments, I need to finish a little statue for my grandmother, and a con this weekend, so it's going to be an adventure trying to squeeze some time in this week!

    Mori Learns Sculpting Part 2!

    It's a practice thread, so y'all get to see all the ugly things too! Well. You would if I could get a camera to work. It was a weird week and it affected my progress. I did not complete what I wanted to get done. I couldn't find my armature sheet, but I didn't want to push off sculpting because I wasn't prepared. I tried making a few heads, but when I measured them later, my heads were about 3 mm and normal mini heads are 4 to 6 mm! Those heads would have to be for a 20 mm tall person! I recently made a 7 mm mini and I think it messed with my mental scale haha. I made some progress on a properly sized 32 mm head on another day, but I need more eye indentation practice. I made a smooth, little sheet of clay and stamped eyes all over that. They're pretty awful. It may have been a dumb week, but a little bit of progress is better than no progress at all!

    Mori Learns Sculpting Part 2!

    Hi all! Most of the Randomness thread folks noticed that this chatterbox wasn't around much last year. 2018 was spent working on my brain. I think I made a lot of progress so hopefully that means I get to spend more of 2019 working on my art! My last post from my previous sculpting thread: This year I'll also be working on practicing those skintones and a destress thread for Ma'al. As always, I appreciate love and critiques, and I hope that by showing a little bit of the time and effort it takes it pursue sculpting, others would be excited about trying it without getting discouraged by the climb up! So let's get started! Table of Contents: - A Mighty and Powerful Bard (coming up tomorrow!)

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I completely goofed my schedule last night. I tried to fix it by taking a 30 minute nap so I could make it to the evening but it uh. Became a 4 hour nap? My head feels funny now! I might just roll with it and sculpt all night! I've been meaning to start my 2019 thread anyways....

    Yes! Everyone is just so awesome and has their own way of sculpting that it's hard to even pick a favorite style haha. And that mouseling was phenomenal!!

    Hugs about the dream, HECK YES for the smoky, spicy chili!!! For mine, I only add just enough tomato to make a liquid base and I skip the beans. ... I basically just make beef and bacon floating in spicy meat sauce. (Also Happy New Year everyone!)

    Boxer Rebellion: Box-Turtle Folk, WIP

    Everything looks so amazing!!! When I read that last sentence, my face went. No books ! What! I'm both impressed, sad, and super interested. LOL. I used to bring my tree, birds, and star books when we'd go camping. My father-in-law would tease me every time. "Don't you know all those things in there yet? Books when you could be fishing?" I did try to fish and read together a few times. My bird book still retains a faintly saltwater scent.

    Day of the Dead couple - a WIP by DKS

    I have a deep love for papel picado, but I think the wreath was an excellent choice! It goes really well for your strongly decorated theme with muted colors.

    Geeky Holiday Swag 2018 Edition

    My husband surprised me with a tshirt and keychain for my favorite esports team, the Houston Outlaws! <3 He had already gotten me a jersey with Morihalda personalized on it earlier this year, so I was surprised and excited to get an everyday tshirt too! Go Outlaws!! I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll be getting a super cute lucky cat pillow from Slime Ranchers soon.... Buying things for myself, I joined the Artis Opus brushes kickstarter and the Mini Pal-ettes by Stephanie Law. I'm super excited to try them out! Real brushes! Real palette! So cool and so fancy!
  14. We're not close enough to friends to have a lot of tabletop or board game time, so it's all PC video games for me haha. Lately: Overwatch. New Wintersday skins to get! Last year: Guild Wars 2. I've played it for years and still do! <3 I've got a few thousand hours on it. I suspect it will eventually catch up to.... Lifetime: Morrowind. The Sylvari in Guild Wars 2 may be my heart, but Morrowind is my soul. I've bought on XBOX, lost it, PC, lost it, bought again, downloaded, modded, gifted, bought again finally on Steam so I wouldn't lose it.... I still play it occasionally. Thousands and thousands of hours. It's home. It was what got me through tougher years and really kindled that open RPG love in me. And the character creation addiction. That started with Morrowind haha!
