naamah_darling: The right-side canines of a wolf's skull; the upper canine is made of gold. (Default)
Thing I Made Thursday, one day early! To make up for all the days-late posts!

Serenity was awfully secretive about her name. She wouldn't give me anything, and then she gave me that, and I was like, "So simple? Okay!" What the pony wants, the pony gets.

She was a gift for [livejournal.com profile] brightlotusmoon. She arrived at her new home today, and now I can post pics!

Serenity

She was made from a G3 Blue Mist who had awful hair and lots of symbol and glitter rubs, and some glue drips, but was otherwise in pretty great shape. This is only the first or second time I've used the pony's base color without repainting.

I'm very happy with how she came out. I think she's right up there in the running for cutest of all the ones I've made.

She was rehaired, as always, in Dollyhair Nylon. The colors are Virgin Snow and Lemon Drop. She was repainted in acrylics and sealed with Testor's Dullcote.

I love her eyes:

Serenity Eyes

It's hard to see, unfortunately, in the pictures, but I did something new with her. Using Pearl-Ex powders, I gave her blush on both cheeks and a little bit on her nose. I also took gold Pearl-Ex and went up over her eyebrow ridges so she has a little bit of shimmer above the painted eyeshadow. The effect is subtle, but in person it gives her this lovely glow. I am definitely using this technique again.

I absolutely adore her, and I know her new best friend will adore her, too.

I am EXPLODING with delight to finally get these pictures in front of you! Seriously, I am bubbling over with happy feels.

Here she is!

Stolen Kisses 01

Stolen Kisses sails the Seven Seas on her ship, the Heartbreaker, filling her coffers with ill-gotten gold and jewels and leaving a trail of beautiful lovestruck girls and boys in her wake. She never has to get rough to get what she's after; nobody ever puts up a fight. What does she do in her spare time? Let's just say that this pretty little filly sure puts the buck in buccaneer, but she never kisses and tells!

(Shut uuuup. THERE ARE STORIES ABOUT HER IN MY HEAD. It's acutely embarrassing.)

You need to see these pics, seriously. )Stolen Kisses 07

I cannot get enough of her. She sits by my bed where my nightlight shines on her. She is without a doubt my favorite pony that I have done. She isn't for sale, obviously, because I would have no idea what to charge for all the fiddly little accessories, and because I just don't want to part with her.

Specs: Stolen Kisses was made from a terribly battered and manky G3 Royal Rose. Seriously, look and see, she still has these adorable little chew mark scars on her right forehoof from someone's baby teeth.

She was fully rehaired in nylon Dollyhair in Black Magick, Bougainvillea, and Ultraviolet, all mixed up together. And she looks fabulous.

I started her back in December, I think, and then she sat around, half-painted, until I found the wherewithal to really go for it. I knew I couldn't do a halfassed job or it would just never work. And now, here she is, and I could not be happier with her.

I've been so . . . so broken, lately, I guess, that nothing has felt doable except this sort of thing. Just brainless adorableness and pretty, harmless things, and whatever magical-feeling things I can make out of stuff I have lying around. I can't handle anything hard or sharp or ugly or difficult right now. I can barely answer emails. So doing stuff like this cheers me up, and it cheers me up to be able to show y'all pictures of her, because I am so proud and because I hope she might cheer you up, too.

Goddammit, I make magic, I share magic.

Apparently I post a lot when I am depressed and avoiding panic attacks. WHO KNEW.

BttDB Day 8 kizza kitten

Sauce.

This is a kizza kitten at about five weeks. Rough sketch, WIP, all of that. Her ears should really be bigger.

Kizza are critters from our current tabletop RPG setting, Ethrus Prime. They are like little fennec catbunnies. VENOMOUS fennec catbunnies. They make great pets, though, and are So. Goddamn. Adorable.

Cuteness! Ees good!

One of the drawings I lost was a really beautiful picture of an adult. I am so fucking pissed.

I did find one version of the picture of the actual jandar, also a WIP:

wip: an actual jandar

So there you go. Something to look at.

I am going to edit some pics for this week's Thing I Made Thursday, which SHALL NOT BE DERAILED. Because I really want to sell the goddamn thing.

Yup, still in love with this guy.

Professor Blofeld von Smooch 02

I mean, really. Why were the chicks not all over this guy? This is obviously a cultured, intelligent cat that will recite poetry to you while you stand on your balcony, thinking to yourself, "What I really need in my life is a guy who sleeps with his face in his water dish and wants to cuddle when I'm on the toilet. A guy who will save me from my glasses by dragging them off my face and hiding them under the blanket. A guy who smells kind of like socks and mushrooms. This guy."

Professor Blofeld von Smooch 01

We are so seldom sure when we've done the right thing. Life doesn't always work like that, you know? This time, I am sure. Smooch was the absolute right thing.

You guys, I love him so much it isn't fair. I would love him even if his face wasn't so silly. That is how much I love him.

The face is just the sugar on top.

Adorbs!

Cat update!

You should appreciate how restrained I am being not spamming you with pictures every single day. Because I could. I SO could.

This time I bring video.



As you can see, Etrigan and Fish are getting along.

Well, mostly.

He's trying to nurse on her. I thought I was going to die of cuteness.

I hadn't seen him do this before, so I ran to grab the camera and thankfully, they were still at it when I got back.

Etrigan is teething terribly, it looks tremendously uncomfortable, and I think this was a self-soothing thing on his part. He's cutting his lower right canine right now, the one growing in where his baby tooth was knocked out when he was thrown from a car. The gums had healed over completely, so I'm wondering if it's extra uncomfortable for him. He's walking around with his tongue between his front teeth nearly all the time, and is always holding his jaw slightly open. Poor little baby.

Etrigan and Fish Lazor Fight

That is a more typical interaction. They were playing. At least, Etrigan was playing. Fish was pretty annoyed at that point.

Etrigan and Fish 1

We've started to see a lot of this, though.

Etrigan and Fish 2

I love that she's actually squishing his cheek up in this one.

Sleep-Biting

Smooch fell asleep wrestling with Etrigan. Like, there is a piece of Etrigan in Smooch's mouth in this picture. Etrigan doesn't give a rat's ass.

Smooch Asleep

Typical Smooch lounging.

Toilet Hog

That is what I saw when I went to go pee late last night. He wouldn't budge. As it turns out, he was telling me his water was empty. Smooch knows how to take hostages.
naamah_darling: A gray cat with a white chin squinting as though she smells food. (Fish)
Fish often visits me right after I get in bed, snuggling up near my feet. Tonight, I came in from brushing my teeth, and this is what I saw.

Fish and Bunnsley

Who says cats don't have expressive faces?

She is still lying there with one paw over her eyes and her back feet sticking straight out. She is still monopolizing Aubrey Bunnsley. Silly thing.

Today (tomorrow, since I haven't slept) is my birthday, and I am going to dinner and I get to see my dad and I will probably get to talk to some friends and game some, and later on I will keep working on pirate porn, which is going really well, and that's about all I really want for myself. What I would like for all of you is for you to be as happy today as that fat cat up there. I am wishing you major fat cat happy vibes.

naamah_darling: A tiny week-old tabby kitten with her paws raised and her eyes half-closed. (Kittens)
It was about two years ago, yeah.

I've been going through old photo files, and found some I never posted.

I am pretty sure that's Jack, with Emelia's head and ear just visible over his shoulder.

Jack

This is Viktor and Emelia (left to right), also in my lap, three days earlier.

Twins

Full set here.

They are all doing fine, last I heard. I do miss them a lot, though not as badly as I used to. I don't, like, get all teary about it anymore.

They are so little for such a short time. I am actually sorry I didn't take more pictures!

I don't care what you are doing or where you have to be, you have to go to this entry on SplodeFromCute and look at the utter mind-bending adorableness of Ziggy and Zora.

I've been following them on the comm for a while now, and usually figure everyone who wants to see kitten videos can go see them there if they want to, but I'm pushing you to go look this time. The videos. The videos! EVERY SINGLE ONE is 'splodeworthy.

And I have to say Zora is one of the more beautiful cats I have ever, ever seen. I know Bengals are a particularly lovely breed, but . . . WOW.

GO LOOK.

naamah_darling: The right-side canines of a wolf's skull; the upper canine is made of gold. (The Mocus)
One of our gaming buddies brought her new puppy over. Normally, I am opposed to this sort of thing because the cats take Extreme Exception to it (sometimes to the point of peeing on things, which is very upsetting to me), but . . . just this once. JUST THIS ONCE.

Marley 01

OH MY GOD.

Marley 02

There IS no save versus cute. Got that? YOU DO NOT GET A SAVE. You take SAN loss. Or, if you prefer, you take continual spirit damage while puppy-face mode is active, and you may be stunned.

Macro the second one as you see fit. The puppy is part border collie and part cocker spaniel, and his name is Bob Marley. I will have to call him Marley, because I already know a Bob.

Not to be outdone in the cute pets and gaming equipment, Tazendra lets the power go to her head:

Kitty 1 Needs Charging

Her battery life is low and the vibration feedback feature only works for me, but MAN, she is soft. Stylish matte black finish!

I have nothing interesting or useful to say, so I bring you this, recently spotted on [livejournal.com profile] splodefromcute.



This kitten has epic fierce. Also, jazz paws.

You don't necessarily need sound, but you might need a high-pressure cute suit. I have watched it about ten times and I can't not smile every time.

I took some pics of the cats last night. And, behold, I have put Flickr to its intended use once again, instead of using it for boring art crap.

Behold!

Evil Fish 03 Crazy Face

Fish and her crazy face!

Please do click through to see Tazendra being cute. Cut because I care about the internet. )

And, last, a picture that, without my meaning it to, sums up a good chunk of my life:

Most of My Life

You can click through for the mouse-over notes if you like. Two out of three cats, my crafting stuff, my gaming stuff, my comfy blanket. All it's missing is Sargon and Fish.

Anyway, I hope you had a good Halloween. We had a very nice time. And lots of trick-or-treaters! I love that there's one night a year when adorable kids in costumes come to my house and I get to give them candy. Yes, I know, I don't care for the company of children, but when you put them in cute little outfits . . . well . . . how could I not love that?

I don't make you look at my cats enough.

Here, have three pictures.

Death Fats 01

It is really hard to believe that she used to be a very thin kitty.

Some people have exercise buddies. I have a chubby buddy. I figure as long as she is really fat and yet still fucking adorable, I am good to go. It's been good for my self-esteem.

She is not being particularly adorable in this picture, though. She is sort of sleeping, but she is still making the crazy face. She makes some kind of crazy face about 70% of the time. The rest of the time she is being lethally cute, or just looking cheerful and eager in an attempt to get you close enough to bite. She bites everything. We tell people she bites, and they don't believe us because she is a really friendly, really cute cat who doesn't look like the kind of cat who will crunch her teeth into your scalp until she draws blood. They don't believe, and they pet her, and she rolls on her back to show her really soft belly, and the hook is baited and set. They touch her white bits. Then she bites them, and you can hear the actual sound of enlightenment happening. "OW! What the fuck?!" That is the sound of one hand clapping.

Death Fats 02

See, that is the face of a tail-waving maniac whose only means of relating to the world involves sinking her teeth into it. If you see her laying like this, and you touch her, you will pull back a bleeding stump and be forced to lie about how you lost that finger for the rest of your life unless you want people to think you are stupid or crazy.

I can hear her in the hall right now dragging her fish toy into my bedroom because -- horrors! -- she's gone all day without vividly demonstrating her bite-fu to me as a warning not to touch her "region.*"

We have nicknamed all our cats after diseases. Tazendra is Yersinia, more often just "The Mocus," a generic term for whatever is going around. Sif is, obviously, syphilis, or "The Syph." We decided that for Fish, we needed a disease whose reputation was as ridiculous and overinflated and full of crazy bullshit as she was, so obviously she is the obesity epidemic. We now call her The Death Fats.

Anyway, speaking of Tazendra, here she is, supporting an entire game world and all the notes for it. I am sure it was more comfortable than it looked.** She does look kind of bummed out, but that's pretty normal for her. Even her happy faces look like she's thinking about killing you with a rusty shark-hook.

Stuff on My Mocus

She likes to lay under things, and doesn't care if you pile things on her.

There. Cat pics for Caturday.

* Her "zone." Her "area." Basically anything soft and white and near her baffles. Which is what she has instead of buttcheeks.

** It was supported on both sides, underneath, so yeah, it wasn't really resting on her.
