Gun show and more art  
Chris found out there was a gun show near our town. He asked for half the day off so we went to check it out. It was a new experience for us. There was so much awesome stuff there. I didn't take pics, I was just enjoying the experience. Chris got some awesome stuff for his shotgun. I only got two cases of 50 22 long rifle ammo. The prices were jacked up so I only got two. One guy was insane selling packs of 100 for $30!! THIRTY BUCKS! A pack of 100 usually costs 10. No way! I went because I was hoping for a deal. Sorry, though it's hard to find I'll take my chances at the sports store where they sell it at normal price of $10 for 100. Sheesh it was a 3x mark up. Chris got a scabbard so he can carry his gun on his back and an ammo pouch to go with it. I'm sure he'll post pics soon on his LJ. Then we had breakfast at Subway.

Breakfast anywhere here sucks right now. The Northerners are still down and most normal breakfast places are packed with 20 min waiting. Luckily there wasn't really anyone at Subway and we opted for that which worked out great.

Then we came home and it turned into a whole day off because Chris didn't get any calls. I'm so glad. I've missed him and needed him here. He helped me clean the pavers outside and the chicken coop. And I got some art done.

I'm thrilled that I have finally finished inking Quetzalcoatl. My gosh that took forever. I can finally start to color him. Tomorrow I shall. But now I have a new problem. I don't know what color to make his viper head. I was originally going to make it a pink eyelash viper. But I don't think that will look right in digital. So I'm thinking of diamond back rattlesnake. But ugh, those look like they have a difficult pattern. They are pretty but probably hard to color. The Eastern Diamond Back I think is the most beautiful. They are very dark. But nothing seems easy about this guy. I pretty much know the colors of everything else.

And I've made this really awesome drawing I can't wait to start coloring.

Malidicus and Ophidius are camping in the woods. Again like every night Ophidius bites down on his knives and puts venom on them. Malidicus is a bit annoyed by this. Ophidius doesn't care. He's having fun.
I think this will be really nice once colored up. Buy UGH, trees again. I hate coloring trees.

Man, they did have some awesome stuff at that gun show! I keep forgetting that we also bought a universal gun cleaning kit. I will put up the pics you took of me on my LJ. I already got them up on my Flickr.

Breakfast was pretty good at Subway today.

I have been wanting to get the porch cleaned up for quite some time. I was happy to do it.

I know you will solve the viper color dilema.

I freaked out when I 1st saw this new drawing! My Malidicus looks very good and Slith just looks psychotic! lol I want to see this completed. hehe

I was thinking Thanatos would enjoy himself there, but probably has most of that stuff already.

I was looking at rattle snake pics today. I've got an idea how to go about it. I hope it won't be hard. More problem solving.

I'm so glad you liked it. I thought you might. Yeah, I can't wait to see it colored too.

Who are the Northerners and why do they come down and eat all the breakfast? Lol that sounds silly but I thought I'd ask anyway.
Lol I like Malidicus's expression in that picture. He really looks rather disgruntled.

The Northerners aka The Snow Birds are people from the northern states (which is everyone because Florida is the furthest south of the continental states) in the winter and visit or live in Florida during the winter. Northern states suck if you love warm weather. It gets cold and with snow. So ever Fall and winter we are invaded. When we first moved here, it was in the summer, one of the restaurant owners warned us traffic would get really bad and it would be crazy. We didn't believe him because we'd seen people come down before. But holy cow the population does double or triple and it really sucks. Everyone drives super slow because they are retired old people. And because of this it's really stupid even on weekdays because they aren't working. But the most mind boggling thing about it is why here? This is a hick town. We moved out here because it was far from everything and we thought there wouldn't be so many people. When you come down to Florida you go to places like Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Tallahassee, Daytona etc. So why here? There's nothing out here? I lived in Tampa all my life and it was never this crazy. It just makes no sense.

Hehe, glad you like Malidicus. He doesn't always understand why Ophidius does what he does.

Wow, sounds like a lot of people! So you have heavy traffic in the winter while we have it in the summer lol!
Des: Owen Painedthagirion on March 4th, 2013 05:50 pm (UTC)
Yeah it's ridiculous. I see license plates for so many different states and sometimes even from Canada. People drive that far to live here during the winter in their winter homes. And we moved out here to get away from people.

The other thing that makes no sense was that in the major popular cities on Sundays if you get to a restaurant early it's good because everyone's in church. You often hear the phrase, "Beat the church crowds". Because Churches usually get out around 10 or 11. Well that doesn't apply here either and Sundays at any time of the morning are a mad house more than the other days. "Why aren't they in church?" We keep saying. Bunch of heathens hehe ;) But yeah nothing adds up in this town.

That's good that you got to spend some time with Chris and also that you got some work done at home.

I forgot to say in my reply to a previous post of your's that it's good that Chris's truck is almost paid off. Maybe you can then afford to pay some attention towards getting you transport.

I love that pic. It's great!
Des: Excited SpongeBobthagirion on March 4th, 2013 12:38 pm (UTC)
Yes all of which was much needed.

Yeah, I can't wait for it to be paid off. It will be nice to save up for a new truck.

Thanks. I think this will be a very nice pic.
