Brain storming  
It's the first of March finally. Spring is here. My favorite season. I hope the temps will warm up from here out. I have seen the trees starting to put out new growth and the phlox tried to start but I think the last frost killed those that were too early. But clearly the plants are just as eager for Spring as I am. I want to put all my plants back outside but I'm hesitant. It should be highs in the low 80 and lows in the upper 50s for the whole week. Plants can handle that but it's the unexpected frost I worry about. But Feb the worst winter month is now over. And we sort of get a repeat of last month as far as the calendar goes. Another Sunday the 1st so another Friday the 13th again.

I've noticed I don't usually make much art on Sundays. Don't know why I just don't feel like it. But I did start to shade the background of the first frame today and it's already looking nice. I hate that stage of inks only and then flats when it looks terrible and you just want to quit. You have to keep at it because the final product is nothing like the start. The start always looks cheap and bad. And working on the laptop is frustrating as I don't have all my tools. On my main PC I have a file of resources I have made for myself. Things like windows, lamps, tables etc that I only have to draw once and can modify and reuse over and over to make things easier. I realized today I don't have my lamp post on here so I'll have to get that off my PC. I'm also going to do a chair switch. I may start to use my Dr. Claw chair again as it ha a nice thick cushion. I hate the new chairs that are for posture. "Normal posture" is not what I need. My lower back needs to curve away from my tummy not into it to be comfortable. And my legs shouldn't be raised higher than my butt. I hate chairs that have a lump under your legs. That's what hurts my back as it puts pressure on my tail bone which shoots pressure up my spine that I'm not supposed to have. So your gets get a soft cushion that raises them while your butt gets a harder seat. Screw that. And all chairs are now made this way. No I need a good old fashions fat pill for the seat part.

I'm very excited about starting a new section of George's Saga. I don't remember if I talked about this but it's about a hit contract from the victim's point of view who's running from George. I kind of know what this guy looks like and I need to think of a name as always. For now I'm calling him Larry. Tentative name. I think this will be a good story and should make George out to be a real bad guy. I think it will be set in the late 40's. So it's sort of a gangster story in one of the big cities.

I have found a new song that makes me think of Thagirion so much. Raven Lord by Mystic Prophecy. http://youtu.be/LIR0fegM-AE
I like that even the raven part fits him as it deal with an aspect of him I have not focused much on. His spirit birds. He brings these out in battle when it is absolutely necessary. They look like skulls or ravens and black ethereal shapes of raven like black birds. They have either red or green glowing eyes if they have eyes at all. Something I must draw one day. Along with his other powers like fire and his mouth beam that's white hot. Gosh there's just so much I need to draw. These are concepts that I probably will never get to. I'd love to draw a fancy ballroom with lots of people at a party. Davon and Solan are watching in the foreground as they are the hosts. It would be something fancy and formal. I'd like to draw Solan again too. I've had a funny idea which him about one of his odd behaviors but don't want to say too much. AND once I'm done with demon 11 I'd love to draw a collage with the entire hierarchy. Gosh that would be awesome but an crazy about of work for me. Chris wants that to happen. Well I did draw 1-5 once in their human forms. I need to figure out the human forms of all the new characters too.

Bullet has six eggs now. I'm annoyed that in the states I can't find a candler made by anyone but Prolite. Seems like they have a monopoly on parrot egg candlers. Very annoying it didn't used to be like this. The chicken candlers are way too big, so small eggs like parrots need to have little ones made for them.

I'm ready for this cold weather to just all go away. It's not supposed to be in the 30's in March.

I don't like those chairs that put a cushion under your knees either. If I'm sitting on something, I want my butt to be on the softest part. It I want to raise my knees up, I'll do it myself when I prop my feet up.

I don't think you have talked about this new part of George's story, at least you haven't here.

Six little Bullet eggs! I hope at least one is fertile and that you can find a good candler.

I bet you more than me. Too much winter.

I totally agree with you. Yes softest part should be on the butt not legs.

Ok, I've talked a lot about it with Chris and didn't remember if I'd written it here.

Yes I hope they are fertile. Sandwich sometimes goes in the box. Perhaps Chris can find me a mini flash light that's bright enough for now.

I know the North East has been hit hard by snow and ice the last week. I hope it will be over now.

Yes it comes in very handy to have premade everyday objects sometimes. And you miss them when you are on a different computer.

Yes so many gangsters back then. I think this will be a neat story and I'm curious how many George fangirls will stay loyal to him after this story?

A very old drawing from 1999 (great year for the birth of the most powerful demon) and the only time I think I've drawn the spirit birds.
These spirit birds are the worst of the worst souls Thagirion has taken over time. They were so powerful he did not devour them as energy but keeps them inside himself as weapons. They have no memories of who they used to be and not all are human since he's as old as the universe and the Earth is not the first planet he's come across.

Yeah I don't know why I can't find a decent one for bird eggs from other companies.

Happy spring and I hope it soon warms up for you.

I dind I can't make myself do too much work on Sundays - they are days of rest!

Yes, it does seem indeed that new chairs suck. Yes, there should not be a bump for your legs - that cuts off your circulaton. Maybe a blow up ring cushiopn could help your tail bone?

Six eggs is a lot. I wonder if you could get an egg candler from overseas. Germany has a good reputation for well made things. Perhaps look at a few reviews?
Desthagirion on March 2nd, 2015 01:29 pm (UTC)
Thanks. Yes hopefully it will become warm soon.

I managed to get some done but yeah I just didn't feel lie it.

They are so badly made these days. There has to be someone that still makes them like they used to be. Right.

I thought about that but by the time it gets here the eggs would have hatched.

That's a point. By the time the candler got to your place the eggs would be hatched. Well, with so many eggs laid you have a good chance of geting some babies! Unless she has TOO many and can't fit them all under her.
