I have misplaced one of my nicer cameras. I thought I'd seen it since I moved in which would make sense as I have the other two... Probably going to scour the hobby room now.

 

ETA: I forgot my mom borrowed it.

You ever, like, actively try to have a nice day, but everybody's a real butthole and fights you on it?

 

We're on that day of quarantine here.

 

Still. Got off my fat can and me and the Aussie walked about a mile. My body's so broke down lol. But it was nice.

  Hmm... I dunno, maybe it's a generational thing, but...

I just saw a video of a woman online who had a large-ish upper chest tattoo - which I don't generally think looks good, but whatever - of what appears to be five Japanese throwing stars with fire trails behind them, which went up into a full neck piece from her collarbones to the bottom of her jawline done in black lines of some kind of swirling pattern, and continued up one side of her cheek to her temple...   :unsure:

  She also had a full sleeve on one arm that went over the back of her hand and down three fingers, as well as a collection of random stuff covering most of one leg from hip to ankle and her other arm from bicep to wrist. And a large marijuana leaf covering half of one buttock. :rolleyes:

Granted, it's her body, so whatever... But I'd really like to know the thought process that went into selecting all those particular designs/pieces and their locations... I mean, eesh.   :zombie::blink:

 Yeah, cuz that always goes over so well when you're not the protagonist of the story... Something tells me there's going to be a moment coming soon when the "god"'s immortality will be tested.

One of my mom's best friends in the 80s had similar tattoos and similar placement, including the left butt cheek. Said friend and her husband were members of the biker gang that owned our neighborhood in Los Angeles. They gave out the best candy at Halloween and kept gigantic great danes.

 

I never learned to look down on tattoos.

Quite often a collection f tats that looks "random" is either impulse or some sort of initiation/ memorialization related to a gang affiliation.

As noted by @NebulousMissy it's a thing for the 1%er biker gangs.

I've never grown potatoes before on the principle that they are too cheap in the store but put some in this year for obvious reasons.  They do grow amazingly.  You haven't seen anything yet.

Some folks don't think.

 

Some folks do it to deliberately tweak the "normals" for their amusement or because it allows them to control the reactions they receive.

 

Some folks want to advance/improve their social standing with whatever crowd they are a part of.

 

Some folks don't give a hoot what anyone else thinks.

 

I have three, myself.  All good-sized pieces (and not just because I'm a chunk).  If I had my way, I'd be nearly covered: full sleeves, back piece, etc.  Hands neck and face are "no-no"s for me, though.  Even lower arms should be left alone (my chosen industry frowns on such things).

 

I'm still a little annoyed that I lost my last two piercings earlier this year.  Those were always conversation starters/enders!  I found it intersting to watch peoples' reactions to them.  My mother-in-law's eyes just about popped out of their sockets when she saw them.  They were having tech-issues, and I came out of the bedroom without a shirt on (rare for me, I prefer to keep the moobs contained) to figure out which wires should go where.  As a former MP for the USMC the tattoos didn't much phase her, but she wasn't quite prepared for the piercings!

I was watching a bunch of Ink Magazine video interview with tattoo artist earlier this week.  Evidently, it is only recently (last 5-10 years) that people have started designing full sleeves/back pieces from the get go.  It was much more common to decide to get a tattoo and put it somewhere without the forethought about tattoos that come later.  Also many peoples first tattoos are while they are younger, with less disposable income, so they don't tend to be big or done by the "best" or most talented artists.  Especially the tattoo that you get done on a whim after drinking.

 

I could be that the woman in question had already used up most of her 'prime' real estate and wanted that specific tattoo and had to figure out how to make it work.

 

I like the idea of tattoos, I just haven't had an idea of one that I liked enough to have put on my body permanently.  I love looking at other peoples though.

Less disposable income?  I had so much more back then!

 

My first tattoo was from a place had a sign specifically for the "rough and ready" crowd: "No tattoos if drunk or rude."  Being drunk, or recovering from a bender, also impairs the body's ability to clot blood.  Which I knew but ignored when getting the first non-ear piercing.  Come to think of it, for the ears, too.  But that shirt would have been ruined if it hadn't been black.

I'm very excited! :bday: 

 

I'd never expected to be growing potatoes either, but apparently the random bag of potatoes I'd grabbed a few months ago were organic, and thus were not treated with a sprout inhibitor. Which is why, when I unearthed them from the back of the pantry, they looked like this:

20200419_100756.thumb.jpg.50290180754f7b69b67b5c23d74d5132.jpg

 

...Apparently I've already shared this picture, but I have zero memory of having done so. :mellow: So, uh, here it is again?

 

Honestly, these silly little potatoes have been surprisingly good for my mental health, since my sense of reality has been a bit...fuzzy lately. These are real and alive and give me something to look forward to in a few months. Especially since they really can't be affected by this whole virus thing.

 

DO YOU HEAR THAT, YOU STUPID VIRUS! YOU CAN'T CANCEL MY POTATOES! *shakes fist* ::P:

Yay! Plant loving is awesome, and I feel like most veggies and herbs are relatively low maintenance. House plants and flowers however...

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please).

      Pure White
      Super white. Critical threat!
       
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

    • By WhiteWulfe
      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
       
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
       
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
       
      Anyways, onto the rolls!
       
       

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!
       

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
       
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
       
       
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!

      Link to original challenge: 
      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
       
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
       
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
       
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
       
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

       
      And here he is ready for the paint.

       
      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.

      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
       

       
      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
       

       
      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.
       

       
      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!
       

       
      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
       
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
       
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
