Does this look even? It's not supposed to...
Cool Story, Bro!I must be crazy. On something resembling an impulse, I've launched a webcomic adaptation of the “Cool Story, Bro!” concept from my website. If mediocrity is your scene, check it out.
Cool Story, Bro! on Comic Fury
New ComputerNew computer has been acquired and installed in the bedroom. I shall call it Tedd, and it looks really pretty with purple Aero windows, the Bubbles screen saver, and this artwork by Dan Shive as the wallpaper.
Tedd has a hyperthreaded quad-core i7 CPU at 3.4GHz, and 32GB of RAM, running Windows 7. I look forward to exercising all this processing capability for art and entertainment.
Camera RevivalI may begin using my 3.3 MPix* camera with renewed frequency. Apparently, its battery contacts need periodic cleaning. But I also acquired a 4×D-cell external battery pack for it, for long-lasting power. Now that I don't think I'll be replacing this thing anytime soon, maybe I'll try to develop an ICC profile to take care of the corrections I always seem to be applying.
* I don't know where they get that 3.3 megapixel figure. The largest pictures it takes are 2048x1536. That's 3,145,728 pixels. Or, exactly three binary-million pixels.
The Meaning Of Llamas (rant-ish)So deviantART rolled out this whole Llama Badge thing a couple of weeks ago. I've now received several, mostly from people I've never heard of, who never commented or +fav'd my work. Apparently, each deviant can give a Llama Badge to each other deviant, at most once. Furthermore, this requires confirming one's site password. That's a lot of pressure to think twice before awarding a Llama Badge.
And I don't even know what they're supposed to mean.
Okay, I guess it's a good thing. But how good is it? If they cost nothing to give, are they worth anything? By what criteria should I decide whether to give a Llama Badge?
And then people started trading Llama Badges for other dA commodities, notably Points. And then dA came out with this Points-for-Llamas market thingy, further complicating the matter. I don't know if that makes Llamas more valuable or just cheapens them by taking artistic merit
#roadgeeks Group (now online!)So, I went and filled out the form to create a Group called #roadgeeks. My first choice would have been #roadgeek but apparently there's been a ~roadgeek for about a month now who hasn't done a single thing since creating the account. Annoying, isn't it? Anyway, I know there are a few highway enthusiasts out there on deviantART so there should be a group for that. For that matter, there seems to be a fair amount of incidental roadgeek material from non-roadgeeks which will make for a well-populated Group Favorites section. So, I await the group's birth, and I have a couple of people in mind who will receive invitations to join at that time.
Update: :iconroadgeeks: is online and accepting membership requests!
ObsoleteI just noticed, every single item I listed for "Tools of the Trade" on my front page could be considered "obsolete" in some way. But it's all still useful, at least enough for my purposes.
That said, I want a new camera for my birthday.
P.S. Why do all the "journal skins" options appear to be available now? I don't have time to see if they actually work, but it's odd to see the options...
WatchlistI just went through clearing out all the deviations, journals, notices, etc. in my Message Center. (There were nearly 400 deviations in there...) Some of the items I just went though were months old. I still have to get to the Feedback section, so to all those folks who commented and +fav'd me, you'll get responses soon.
My watchlist is pretty big, but I don't think I'll be dropping anyone. I'll just have to check dA more often.
GenderYou know, I'm just really bad at guessing what people's genders are on deviantART. There have been multiple times when I've assumed someone on my watchlist was a girl, and then I see something that indicates otherwise; and vice versa. To complicate matters, there are at least a couple deviants I watch whom I believe to be transgendered.
Does it matter? Absolutely not. I don't mind the occasional amusing surprise.
Oh yes, and in case it's not already blindingly obvious, I'm a guy inside and out.
Dude, I got a Dell!As a birthday present, and compensation for being his wedding photographer, my dad got me a new Dell PC. It has dual 2.4GHz processors, 3GB of RAM, and a cool Realtek sound card. I'll probably have to get a nice GeForce graphics card later -- I want to be able to play Flight Simulator X -- though it will be interesting to see how well FS 2004 works with the built-in Intel graphics card. Anyway, the new computer runs Windows XP Pro, and I've named it Dexter. I'm still in the process of installing software and customizing the settings, and when I finish expanding the home network, I can copy my old documents over from Niklas, my 2002-built 721Mhz P3 running Windows 98SE.

About MMD YanSim ModelsHi anyone reading this, but I just want to notify you sorry for the inactivity for a while. I have been taking a break for a very long time and I have little to no interest in Yandere Simulator and MMD. I have no motivation to finish what I started, and I don't want to just keep saying, "Model will be put on download soon." What I want to say is that I won't be making anymore Yandere Simulator models and I want to break any promises I made from you guys. Feel free to use my models and edit them, because I won't be making any Yandere Simulator Models in the meantime. Now that I won't be making Yandere Simulator models I will probably be inactive and will post some screenshots here in there in my free time.
so bleeeh yeah no more yan sim models and you can edit my models because i dont really care about yandere simulator bleeheheeh that also means that i wont be that active anymore blehehehehe theres the start of school so i wont be active times 2 bleheheheh xddddd

CringeLop got to see some of these and took pictures of them. Gotta upload them before she does. Also thought it'd be interesting for you guys to see!
This was when Claire was a dragon Scootaloo (also seemingly exactly like siansaar's Lavender), Valiant was a little more like Prism and Estrello existed. If I remember correctly, these were gonna be the only three characters I focused on and Claire was gonna eventually become a part of the guard.

I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking
