Ophidius's voice  
I'm happy with how well received my pic of Quetzalcoatl has been. It was invited to a Mexican group. I accepted and it is featured on their gallery. I am very happy about that. I will definitely be drawing more of him. I hadn't thought about exposing my art to a Spanish speaking audience. That may be a good move to make.

I watered nearly all the plants today. I got everything in the living room and kitchen. All that's left is the bathroom and my computer room. My nepenthes are all doing very well. I'm thrilled that the one I did surgery on a while back recovered and looks to be making a new leaf. I'll be happy once that new leaf actually pops out. Then I'll know it made it. As for those two orchids I bagged. Dead. I'm not surprised. I'm good but I can't bring stuff back from the dead. So almost a waste of two bucks, but I did get a free pot out of it so it's not a total waste.

I added more detail to the pic of Ophidius with his knives. I like this way better.

I think this will be a nice one once colored up. I hate drawing bar stools though and you can kind of see their outlines. I don't know if this needs anything else in the background.

I finally made that video today. I know several of you have been wanting to hear Ophidius's voice. I was going to just edit everything together, but then I decided to put some funny subtitles on this. Chris helped me out because I suck at coming up with lines for stuff like this. If they go too fast just scroll back the little ball and pause it by hitting the pause button or the screen. Double clicking the screen will take you to the youtube page.

I need to add this to his bios, but yes, calling him a Sidewinder is a major insult to him. Very little gets under his skin, but that's one thing he hates. Heheh.

I like how the background is coming along on the picture!
Haha Ophidius sure gets into a lot of fights with the other guys on Sims :D

Thanks. It may actually be done. Other than the bar stools I can't think of anything else it needs.

Yeah, I wanted him to get into fights with Owen and Davon. Fighting and conflict are my favorite things about the Sims.

That's cool that you have been invited to a Spanish speaking audience.

Wow, you've got a lot of plants if they can't all be watered in one day! Mine take a few minutes, lol :)

The background on your drawing sure grounds him. Bar stools would be hard to draw. I hate human-made objects to draw and prefer organic ones. I think a simple background is best so it doesn't distract from the subject matter. Just enough to put him in context.

Your video made me lol. I like how Chris can come up with the funny dialogue. You two make a good team!

It was a very nice surprise.

Yeah, it would be easy if they were all outside where they belong. Winter is the most difficult time to take care of the nepenthes.

Thanks. I have a hard time with round shapes and stools like that are round. Plus keeping all the legs lines up is also hard and I really don't like drawing them. I actually prefer indoor environments for drawing, but some things like this are hard for me. Cars are difficult for me too, but so are plants. Yeah, part of me wanted to put a big wine rack back there and fill it with all shapes of bottles, but I don't want to distract from him that's for sure. The point is to show his knives. So I agree and this may actually be finished.

Good, I'm glad you liked it. It was supposed to be funny. He sure helped me a lot on this.

The Ophidius video is funny. Those lines and the game's sound effects. My favorite part was when Davon set Ophidius's butt on fire.

Hee, hee, I'm glad you liked it. Almost all their voices are right. Solan's isn't right though, and I still don't even know what Thanatos is supposed to sound like in my own mind. But the rest are very good, especially Ophidius and Davon. I love setting him on fire. Or freezing him. After that he got three wishes "Insult Davon" "Beat up Davon" and "Win a fight against Davon."
