    Swimming and ice cream, in that order. I'm saving for an inground swimming pool.

    I don't have that kind of time to waste, really. I tend to watch series on Netflix or DVR when I have a spare hour every few days, one episode at a time. Rewatching Stargate:SG1 took me over a year, and I usually only watch one series at a time :D

    My initial idea of skin tones comes from early ad&d art and the Floquil Polly S line of AD&D paints.

    I have a couple display cases. One is a cheap shotglass display case from a hobby store. It works, but it's cheap. The other is a stair-stepped platform with an acrylic rectangle top, I think for those funko things. That's pretty decent, I keep that one on my desk and have WIPs and primed stuff in it to keep them from getting dusty. I've used a tablewar tray (magnetized bases) to display some minis in a fine art exhibit, but the lighting was horrid and nobody really understood what they were.

    Doc, we used to take the gunpowder from shotgun shells to make bombs. When my buddy and I decided we had outgrown action figures, we popped their heads and fulled them with powder, used firecracker cords to light em. Good times, can't believe I have all my fingers. Our version of 'war' was also with bb guns (with a "1 pump" rule that every ignored and used 10 pumps), bottle rockets, firecrackers and roman candles. I laugh at the safety stuff kids today have to live with. The 70s was one giant rusty jagged exploding death trap for kids. And it was awesome.

    There was one time I was in FL for spring break with my band's bassist. We were staying at one of those 2-story horseshoe-shaped places with a pool in the center. I had spent the bulk of our money on a massive box of fireworks on the trip south, good tube projectile stuff. I kept climbing up on the roof, lighting a couple off, and jumping off the roof into the pool. Stuff like that was every day kinda stuff for me back then. It's why I'm happily boring now, I'm just happy to be alive. I still get the urge all the time, but just chuckle to myself. The old lady will side-eye me and say "you're thinking of [jumping off that, etc], aren't you?" :D

    No. Egregiously so. In formal settings, yes.

    My goal this year has been narrowing my art focus to portraiture. In addition to the painting class I've been taking for 5 semesters now, I've taken an online course and am enrolled in another online course, as well as various adjunct lessons and books, all focused on head drawing. I'm bringing in a color course in a couple months to improve my portrait painting. I just won the regional fine art exhibit Best in Show with my first original (and third overall) charcoal portrait, so objectively I'm on track. In reality, I'm just scratching the surface of a very deep mine of information. But I'm pretty happy with my progress thus far and confident in my plan for the rest of the year. I'm a believer in plans and skills development. Figure out what you're really interested in, then chart a course to get there. Constantly evaluate your progress and target your weak spots, don't turn a blind eye to them.

    Eyes. Yes, but I don't know where they are. It was a bombshell mini, the results were...interesting. I was able to fix it and she ended up decent. STILL NOT BASED :D

    Artists Trading Cards?

    I don't do Reapercon, so it's no sweat for me. And I draw more or less every day now, so slotting in time for a card is a nice changeup. I'm not a theme guy, drives the local galleries nuts. So...themeish :D

    I want in on this, not sure how many times I need to mention it over the years :D

    I'll call my next one vuistje :D Mjolnir is an adequate hand sledge, but it's cheaply made and has already split. I have to go through my grandfather's tool bin and see if there is another light head (5lb), I'd rather just get a nice hardwood stick for an older head. Now I'm curious as to how many hammers I have, I'm not I'm even able to find them all to count. Dozens, for sure. I like having appropriate tools at hand...

    Lots. I've got one of most major types, and multiple weights and styles for many of them. I kinda want a nylon hammer, since I need something between metal and rubber. My favorite (Mjolnir, of course), is a 5# sledge.
