Slow day. Gamed mostly  
Just want to get some sad stuff out of the way first. A while back I made a post where I was a down. A friend of mine and I have been talking in private. Her lovely budgie died and it really got to me. We're friends and I've been living through her budgie the time I had when I had my own special talking budgie Phage. I can finally mention this now because she had posted publicly about his passing. Her budgie was just like my Phage in intelligence and talking ability. I know the pain she's going through right now and hope in time she will heal and find a new budgie friend. It's hard to find another one that incredible. I know. I'm still looking. I sent her a few budgie gourds and my Christmas card. If I have time I'd like to make her some special gift art. I don't know when I can do that since I have so much art lined up on my table that I'm so behind on.

Well speaking of art. I did work on some today. I finished inking Caroline which is a good thing. I started inking the drawing of Solan and Cope. Mostly on the small detail of Owen in the background. I've also started digitally inking another budgie design for my gun. But I've kind of put that project aside for now. I need to work on my own stuff and try to finish two more pieces before the end of the year. I don't know if I can do it. Let's hope. The gun design can wait until the next year though I want to work on it now I shouldn't.

Chris wasn't feeling well and had the day off. I hope he'll get better soon. It's a sore throat from having swallowed some food wrong. I've been taking care of him. I helped him put some of my Gilligan's Island Sims in his game. So I'm happy about that. And today I finished all the Jurassic Park people. That took me several hours. At least one per character. I finished Muldoon, Grant and Malcolm. Muldoon and Grant came out great. I'm impressed. Malcolm was super hard like I knew he'd be. His hair just isn't in the game. I found one that kind of looks like him. I had used another one that was longer and shaggy in the back, but because his forehead showed so much it didn't look right. The one I gave him is good on the forehead and he looks better but not as long in the back. But it's more important he look right from the front than the back so I went with that one. I wish I could combine both style. And I'm so annoyed there are no Goatees in the game. I hadn't realized how many characters use those kinds of beards. That and the bow tie should have been included in the first game. Very frustrating.

So I placed all the JP people on my map. There's only one house left with characters I didn't evict and that's because for some reason there's no button for it. So the game won't let me. But I filled all the houses that used to have NPC's. There are still empty houses for sale so that leaves me lots of room if I think of other characters to add in the future. So I will soon make a post showing all my JP characters. Check out the Gilligan characters. I asked for comments and only got my regulars. Where is everyone else?

Two new icons btw. This one is of Cope in Sims 3.
Current Mood: pleasedpleased

Its always sad when you lose a special pet. I felt the same when I lost my dear hamster and rat. I've never been able to find one the same. I wish they lived longer.
Wish Chris well for me! I got a sore throat a while back because I swallowed something that was too hot and burned it.
There NEEDS to be goatees in the game. It's such a common type of beard. I was wondering whether they had trouble rendering it because it sticks off the face or something.
I need to do the free real estate thing and put the other Sims in their proper places on the map. And make my two other guys.

Yeah, I feel really bad for her. I wish they lived longer too.
Thanks. I'll let him know.
I know, it just blows my mind there's not goatee or bow tie. Such simple things that should have been there from the start. I can't make Megamind, Jafar, a magician, a genie or a traditional devil. Lots of characters have them.

It's a great cheat. I'm helping Chris place characters in his game now because he doesn't want any strangers either.

I'm sorry for your friend who lost her special budgie. Yeah, sometimes it is hard to replace a beloved pet.

I'm glad you got some art done today and maybe you will reaxh your goal! You've been doing so much art lately, just not in that category!

Sorry I'm not a very good commenter on gaming stuff. I just have never got into that. It's one of the big differences in us. yet, in other ways we are very similar.

Des: Owen Sadthagirion on December 17th, 2012 01:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks. It really got to me and after she made a video tribute it got to me again. I even had kind of a sad dream about a bluebird I may post.

Yeah, I may be being hard on myself. I have definitely broken a record for art this year if I count everything, not just my Thagirion Realm characters.

Kabuldur, you're an excellent commenter! You and Silvolf are the regulars I was talking about. You have commented on everything so thank you!

Aw. I'm sorry about your friend's budgie. It's so sad to lose a pet like that. :(

It must be fun to see everyone running around town. It'll be interesting to see if the custom characters marry and have kids.

I hope Chris feels better!

Des: Cope Sadthagirion on December 17th, 2012 01:41 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I hope she can find another little friend like he was. But that's going to be very hard to find.

Yes, it's so amusing. I'm loving this. Moe already has a girlfriend so I'm definitely curious.

Thanks. I'll let him know.

She PM'ed me a while back too. I got really upset when I read that PM. It's hard to lose a special pet like that, and I wish they lived longer too.
It's hard for me to comment on the gaming because I'm just not that interested in gaming. The posts where there are pictures are easier, and the ones about game-you, game-Chris, and your OC's. It's hard to make comments when you design characters from shows I've never watched or been interested in.
Des: Solan in The Sims 3thagirion on December 17th, 2012 03:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I actually cried a little. I've just had too many deaths and that was the last straw. I couldn't take it anymore. I made her a private video where I talked to her about it. I felt I had to do it.
Yeah, I can usually tell which games you won't comment on and that's ok. But just from an art point of view you gotta admit I did well with those characters. Have you seen Jurassic Park or The Little Mermaid? Gilligan's Island is a really great show. If you like the Three Stooges you'll probably like Gilligan's Island. I don't know if there are any full eps on youtube but if they do give some a shot. It's all innocent clean humor.
I do my best to always post pics. I want people to see what I'm talking about not just read it if they aren't familiar with the game. But don't worry, my Sims stuff will be mostly about my OC's. I'm glad you like Chris and Des in the game. I just couldn't play as them anymore as it was getting rather boring and too much like our real life. I've started as Solan and Davon and it's already way more fun. I am having Solan talk to Des though as I want them to be close friends. Haha, it's not going well though. Des didn't like him. She's as hard to get to know in game as she is in real life hehe. Poor Solan.

I felt like crying but didn't. I think I have a mental block about crying that I wish I didn't have. It would make stuff like this hurt a lot less if I could just cry it out and be done with it.

I have seen the Little Mermaid, but not Jurassic Park. I just didn't have anything to say about Ursula when you put her up because I've been in overstimulated introvert mode and can't think of things to say.
