I cleaned up a bunch of my workroom today ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ I'm going to have a lot of art supplies to donate or give away soon! I'm probably going to let my friends have first pick and then donate the rest to classrooms around here. I'll make a post about what I have once I'm finished.
Things are going pretty okay right now. I've printed out a couple drafts of the Electricopolis vol. 1 paperback book (it's basically a zine/sampler) but I'm a little concerned that the text is too small, so I gotta run it by my folks first and see if I have to change the entire format around again.
To be honest, I'm really sick of having to mess with it, but what can you do?
Also I've been playing a hell of a lot of 3D Fantasy Zone
lately and it's so good!!! It's really hard but it's a very rewarding game. It helps that there are freely available save states and round select, and the game doesn't penalize you for using either of them. It's still a pretty exhausting game to play, but I'm really enchanted by the colors and the enemies and the overly dramatic backstories and just, like, everything. So the sequel comes out in two months and I'm really excite about that too!!
Oh yeah, so the New 3DS XL came in the mail too. It's nice!!! It's very nice. I've needed a bigger screen for a while, and the black looks so pretty I don't even mind that I can't swap out faceplates. It's really more of a charcoal grey with very subtle pinstriping and that's really beautiful, imo.
Also I'm thinking of making more of an effort to post more often by remembering/documenting things I've seen/learned and things I've done, from a suggestion from a post on tumblr. I already talked a bit about what I've done, so...
Things I've seen.
- A really pretty swimsuit in Old Navy that didn't fit me ;_; I want to go to the pool again...!
- A hell of a lot of snow. A cat walking through the snow very gently. Pat pat pat.
- Guts Man (one of our cats) sandwiched between the couch and a three-tiered kitchen cart I use for holding my art supplies. What a comfortable baby.
Things I've learned.
- There are some species of spider where the males give females "back rubs" and deposit silk on their body so the females won't eat them after they mate. I think this is a great idea for courtship, personally. Give me a back rub and dump silk all over me, imo.
- In Space Harrier, which takes place in the same "fantasy zone" that Fantasy Zone does, there are giant stone faces called "Ida" which are hostile to Harrier. In Fantasy Zone, one of the bosses is named Ida-2 and is a giant face. They must be related.
- Lemon yogurt actually tastes really good
