Montreal tomorrow  
Today was so much fun too. Gamma and I bird watched a little. Then we mostly stayed home and drew for hours. She used my tablet and also drew on paper. I did as well and got some sketch dumps going. I even have one with Fear and Thag that I will turn into a real drawing because it's just so bad ass. Then we watched The Cast Away and also listened to a lot of metal. It really sucked to say good bye and I was a bit down about it but now I'm fine and annoyed I have to pack again and get ready for tomorrow. I need to study my maps and figure out how I'm getting to where I am going. It's only two hours so this will be my shortest and easiest drive yet.

BTW for those of you that haven't seen it here is the download for the ep of Voyager with Fear in it. It's called The Thaw.

The sound might be corrupted though. It didn't work for me on media player but it worked on VLC. Roller mentioned it works if you watch it off Send Space so check it while it's up. These are temp uploads. jokerforever I think you'd like this ep. Anyway this ep is my fave and I saw it years ago. Long before IO and was a big inspiration for Scary Fear though this Fear was a feeling type ENFP. I love how well he played Irrational Fear though. I think most of the raptors have seen this now.

Here's the huge flock of geese I saw in NY state before I entered into Canada.

This was an awesome field of dandelions. I love dandelions both states. The flower and the puffy seed heads.

And I can't believe this cool dead pine tree right outside my hotel. It looks just like Josh Rivera from Monsters Inc. Eyes mouth and tentacles. Here's a pic of him.

Gosh I'm very excited about this new drawing of Fear and Thag. Also drew another sketch of Fear in a new pose with mouth wide open. It's inspired by the metal scream you hear at the start of many power metal songs. For example Insania's Land of the Winter Sun.


I am out of practice with George Smith though. I tried to draw him today and didn't do so well. I need to draw him soon because I need to start portraying him in Triangulum Resistance.

Well I better go. I need to pack and get ready to do another drive tomorrow.

That sounds like you had a lot of fun with Gamma. I can just imagine you two. Sad that you had to part.

That's an awesome pic of the geese and also of the dandelions. I love dandelions. Haha, and I like that scary tree, too.

Onward with your journey. Have a great time!

Yes we had two very nice days for sure.
Thanks. I've only seen a few flocks of geese but loved that. Dandelions are so cute. That tree was amazing.

Yes it was a very wonderful time for sure. Hehe it was the shortest but not sure if it was the easiest. Once I got to Montreal traffic was bad but that's not the worst part. Everything was in French. I could not read the signs. Thank goodness for the GPS. I just followed it. I'll post more on that later.

I don't know why it's messed up. I'll have to rip it myself when I get home since someone else made this one. Oh gosh yes he was quite the inspiration and what Fear should have been in IO.

Glad you like the pics. The tree was amazing. I hope I can draw George. I really need to.

Glad that you and Gamma had another nice time, bird watching sounds fun and also cool that you did some drawing afterwards. Oh man a post with Scary Fear and Thag sounds awesome, definitely excited for that. I'm actually quite out of practice with my characters as well so I understand being out of practice with George.

Ah it seems my time to see the ep is upon me. I downloaded it now so I'll definitly take a look at it time permitting.

These are really nice pics, especially with the geese flying and I can see the resemblance between the tree and Josh Rivera.

We had a great time. I think winding down and drawing our own stuff quietly helped us regain our energy. It was a nice introverted thing for us to do.
I need to clean up that sketch but yes it definitely needs to be a thing and colored. Yeah I had a feeling I would have forgotten how to draw George. He used to be so easy for me so I have to re learn and get that skill back.

Ok awesome. I hope it will work for you. Let me know when you see it.

I was thrilled to see these geese. That tree was crazy awesome. I thought of that scene in the movie right away.

Oh good you got it again. If you ever lose anything I sent you just let me know. I'll be happy to post things again. I love this ep so much. Just amazingly well done.

I might be able to work on it today and add detail to it. In pencil anyway. I think it will be a great pic though I'm not looking forward to coloring Thag.

That's interesting you said that about the geese. They did a study on this on Fear reaction in birds. They had a captive flock and had a goose like shape on a string. When they ran it over the cage of birds with the neck going forward nothing happened. But when they ran it the other way, tail first there was mass panic because the birds saw the shape of a bird of prey. I wonder if I can find that when I get home. I think it's in my animal behavior text book.

I'm glad you like that song. I've actually been wanting to draw a pic of that as a digital painting with Fear subtle in the BG for years now. Perhaps one day I will.

Everything about Thag is hard both drawing and coloring. In fact I wrote this for myself because I always forget how to properly color him.

Oh that's great you took that course and learned about it. Such an obscure thing I'm glad you know of it too. HA. We're such nerds. Haha Fear studies. Something Gord would be interested in. That happened to me the first time ornithology was offered at USF. It was offered as a graduate course and not enough students joined. But when it was placed again as undergrad it worked. I spoke with the professor and told him I was glad the course was offered. He said as a grad course only 1 student joined. I said, "That was me." Haha. I would have loved a private lesson.
