He is. Though, I forget he is because he is the smallest of our 3. We are pretty sure the black fluffy one is a Norwegian Forest Cat. All 3 of them are bigger than the Papillon. 

 

 Back when I was younger, our cat Tommy was a mutt - we weren't even sure he was entirely cat, lol. There was a relative in there somewhere that most definitely was not your average North American domestic house cat. The top of his head was pretty much level with my kneecap. he used to actively pick fights with some of the local dogs.

Just finished installing a new 1TB 2.5 ssd in my new laptop I bought in November. It only came with 500 GB and that filled up fast with newer games. Bought the ssd several months ago and found out I needed a mounting bracket and cable. Found the right one on Aliexpress because Lenovo for some reason is always out of stock. Took nearly 2 months to arrive. Installation was pretty simple but this was my first time installing more storage and it didn't seem to work. After checking and rechecking connections I went online for advice. Figured out how to initialize it and everything is working fine now. Should have taken 15 minutes but took more like 45 because I'm dense. Only bad thing is that I need 4 screws of 2 different types. With typical cheap chinese accuracy I was sent 5 of one and 1 of the other. :rock: Couldn't find anything right in my small pile of electronic bits. Not super worried but need to try and figure out what size the missing ones are and get some eventually. Now on to moving some files and downloading another couple games.

Glitter, that food looks so good!! And plated so nicely, too.

 

I love the plants, Thoramel, Dilvish, and Inarah. :wub:

 

I finally finished cleaning up my art area! I'm so excited to show you all with some pictures tomorrow. :D Should it go here? That's probably best, yeah?

I’ve now got 227 STLs fully cataloged in my 3D printer database. I think I am about a quarter of the way done with the task.

Ahhh....Thank goodness for Wipeout reruns!

 

Watching people (even semi-famous British people) get hit in the face with padded what-nots and fall all over the place never gets old!

and fudge ::(:

 

continued to have BSOD errors on my new PC, so updated BIOS. BIOS update appeared to complete properly, but now the computer won't start at all

 

So looks like I'll have to take it into a shop and get them to just make things work - which would've been my preferred option if I could've got something with my preferred parts in it to start with!

I'll take it you don't want to know about Artisan Guild's upcoming Scourgeland Survivors either than?

This thing screams Morrowind.

I kinda think @Reaper_Jon was asking for workzone photos starting a couple of weeks ago. But, I have no idea which social media platform he was hawking at the time. Discord, Twitter....? But, I say post it first here and echo it in those other places laters.

 

*** wanders off to look for a dedicated forum thread ***

 

I found several threads of the form: This is my new ...painting desk/hobby room/hobby desk...  in the Show Off topic area. So, I suggest putting one picture in this thread and linking that to a dedicated thread with all the pix in the Show Off directory. You can always go back to your Show Off thread if you make upgrades or improvements. Do include your cats For Scale. This is a very much a thing:

That ^ is from @Sarducci 's new hobby desk ^ thread.

Thanks, I like to cook, presentation will make it taste better, it works!

 

@Pingo I noticed your confused emoji at my post about art in the streets.

In our town there is room for artists to display their art on walls in the streets.

It works two ways, artists ( usually starting out or unknown) will become more known and the streets look nicer.

 

So it's not an abandoned piece or something, I should have been clearer about it.

.... Aaand I now have the next two weeks off, while I can't be near Rune... Hopefully for not too too long >.<

 

Dealing with potentially one of my worst fears today - I was supposed to be asleep four hours ago, but long night tonight, that's for sure. I hope it's unfounded and something relatively minor by comparison...

Looks to be a nice day here, and not just weather wise. Enjoying a nice cup of coffee, showered, shaved and will get to go to actual indoor Church today. They are setting up seats inside  with separation for us that are older and will be transmitting to others in the parking lot. It will be different but very nice to be back home!

Starfinder/Roll20 got cancelled for this afternoon, hopefully we can get it in 2 weeks. So this afternoon will see me battling the 3D printer with a feed problem.

Hope you are all having a good day!

      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).

      20
      9039
      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.

      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!
      (end edit)

      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. 
       
      Baby needs a bath first.

      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)
