Solan in DD and glass budgie progress  
Ok, even though the game has major issues I'm starting to really enjoy it now. I have my tripod set up in the game room but I keep forgetting to film stuff. I want to show how Owen gives everyone his fire to enchant their weapons and how elegant he is with it. I also try to take still photos of interesting things that happen. One thing was vulture hugs! Well sort of. Check this out.

Solan picks up a dead harpy and gives her a hug. Other than the woman faces and boobs they're very cute and will made. I love the feet dangling. I had just killed this one and couldn't believe it when I was able to pick her up and carry her around. I guess they are heavy because you run out of stamina if you hold them too long. But you can't tell it's a harpy. Just looks like a big cuddly vulture and I'd love to hug one like that. Every time I see vultures perched I always say that. "I want to give it a hug."

Solan and vulture hugs

Solan's not afraid of snakes

Solan's not afraid of snakes. He's Egyptian so he's used to dealing with snakes. Here he is holding a rather big one. Hehe, this is what I mean by taking pics of neat situations.

Owen's proud of me

And Owen telling me I did a good job after clearing a well for of giant lizards. Because other people use him he may have gone on quests I haven't done yet. This was the case and he had knowledge of this quest and was giving us all orders and advice. I find it funny what Field Marshal he really is giving me the hero and main character orders and telling me I did good. Like I met his expectations. It's so funny. But I'm loving how total strangers on Xbox are using him and giving him very high ratings. He has a perfect score last time I looked on all three areas: Appearance, Combat and Helpfulness. Just like in Sims he's my most downloaded character and best loved. I'm amazed. It's funny that yes he's helpful but he'll berate you at the same time he's helping you. I've decided something new for him too as my creation. Owen has a catch phrase. It's "Of Course!" He says that whenever someone asks him something that has to do with his skills or when something works out because he did it. Like you should have known it would work because it was him. I was laughing when he actually said this in the game when I asked him for help to heal me.

Ok budgie time!

Earthmother is doing an awesome job on my budgie. She's started the soldering.

And a close up of the details. Aren't those jewels pretty? So cute!!

I'm pleased I have been productive today. I haven't spent all day playing video games. I actually made a huge progress on my Jet Shoe Kick drawing. I have inked most of Owen. I just have to ink his shoe and the blood and finally that will be done. I'm looking forward to starting on the coloring. So perhaps I'll finish that up tomorrow.
And I got my order in today for those Dickinson pumpkin seeds. I was surprised because my check for those hasn't cleared yet.

It's awesome that other people are enjoying Owen too. I remember on Spore that public creatures could be in other peoples' games.
The budgie looks lovely. I like the jewel in its cheek.

I'm so glad the whole character sharing in these games has come so far since the days of Spore. I think Spore was the first to do that.
I knew you'd like the purple cheek patch.

I like that harpy too. It does look like a vulture from that angle. I think vultures are cute too.

I love the stained glass budgie. Its little jewel cheek patch is really cute.

The wings on the harpies are done very well. Even when they fly. I'm always very critical of two things when I see birds in movies and games. Proper flapping and feet especially for parrots and woodpeckers. I have always loved vultures since I was a kid.

It's turning out so nice. His eye is a jewel too.

Trust Earthmother to come up with the idea of using jewels in your budgie. I'm loving the progress.

That's awesome that people are using Owen on Xbox and giving him very high ratings - congratulations!

Actually it was my idea.

Thanks. Yeah I'm loving that.

I just read that it was your idea. Neat! I'm glad she is finished it now. Many hours of work for her, I guess. A labour of love! You will be excited to pick it up :)
