Vacation and cakes

So, I took a bit of vacation to rest up and do some gaming with my cousin for a bit. Been a while since last time I had time play games anyway... Ended up testing the computer I've been building up as well when my brother came visit for a bit. We were up wee bit late but it was fun. Also made two trips to Ranua, though I noticed my car's still eating gas like heck... Probably something wrong with the engine (though it's just been fixed up a lots) or the engine is 2.0l instead of 1.6l. Either way, seems I need to find new car that eats less. Again.

Also made some cakes. Fun stuff that. First one on the left, I made for my cousin's birthday. Was still experimenting a bit since I hadn't made one before... And then I made the one on right for my sister who came to visit again from south. That was bit more fun, and I even made it with two layers. :3
And yeah, beer bottles. I need to remind my brother to take them with him next time he visits, not to bring in more...

Still got some computer work to be done this weekend, then I can probably concentrate more on drawing and whatnot. Always so busy with other stuff nowadays...

Winter's coming


So, I've been wee bit busy lately with lots of stuff. There was computer to build, computer to upgrade, stuff to draw, etc. Here's some photos of the custom computer commission I've been working on...


As you can see, it's bigger and more powerful than my own current one (on the photo on the right, my computer is on the right and the custom on the left with glowy fans...). Still, it was pretty fun to build so far, still gots some parts coming in from the mail though... So it'll be some weeks yet before it will fully finished. Got most of the software in there already, though.
Also, got lately new tablet as well, cost me a bunch, but it was worth it... Here's small image above from recent test run I had while testing and adjusting it.

Other than the current stuff, seems the winter is on its way finally, with the bit of snow coming in and cold nights... Got the winter tires up and running under my car, so that side is covered for now. Still got some trouble with cooling though...

Chillin'...

Nothing much going on at the moment but relaxing now that I finally got some days off. Planned to assemble that one computer this weekend, but it seems the parts were delayed by week, so... I got to relax a bit for a chance. Anyway, here's some images of what I've been up to lately:

This is the finished painting from my workplace at Livo, which I finished just this week. Took me full month to work up this one, and I'm still not really satisfied with the house in it... Guess I'll do some fix-ups later.
This one's here one of my random ideas I came up with one sleepless night, it was originally meant to be just a sketch, but Dragon-Nexus wished to color it, so I spent hour or two more inking it... Came out good, I think.

Also got my car fixed up finally, so I don't need to worry about that for a while now, I hope.

Painting as usual

Another day, another painting progress. About time I put up another one, here's the progress so far on the painting, and I'll be posting more later on this week, since it's getting close to finish.

Otherwise not much going on at the moment.

Exosuit designs, Knight Suit

Well, another Exosuit design, this one's originally one of S'Zira's lightly armoured suit, which I decided to use in the comic later on... This particular model is Shield Corporation's Light Knight Suit, not too great armour, but provides actually minor amount of shielding against energy weapons.

Car fixes, work, stuff...


Well, things been rather busy lately in most fronts, so I haven't been around to update much. I got pictures and some updates on life this time though.

At work, we've had these animals we've had to take care for during the summer and stuff, I managed to snap a bit of photos of 'em before they were taken away again. :)

First this black bunny (which one's name I forgot again), and some sheep munching on some greener grass for chance.

Otherwise though, I've been painting and whatnot... Have to put up update photo of that soon, as well.

Back to life stuff... My car's been working great, but lately I've noticed the large gas consumption it has. Soooo, I made a trip and got this chunk of metal on the left replaced with something Weber made... It should lessen the gas usage at least some, I hope.

Along the way, I got this photo of the dog my uncle got around there while we worked at my car... He's a bundle of energy, that's for sure. :)

Otherwise, got many things to be done soon, so I might upload some few more things to show later on... Next month shows promising amount of activity, it seems for now.

Updates on art after this one. :)

Exosuit designs and renovations

Working on some Exosuit designs... Also chance to draw one of my old comic characters again, though slightly redesigned as well. One the left is just the bare underlayer of the suit, giving slight protection against impacts, while on the right is C-class armour plating for civilian use, like cops and such. It gives protection against small arms fire, but not much more. On thigh is small magnetic plate for pulse pistol for police officers, and the headset contains comm gear as well scanner visor with map and basic scanning & radar functions.

On the other news, my flat renovations started today. There's going to be holes in my walls soon...

Busy as usual...



Been working the wall mural a bit more, as seen above. I've added some more since that photo, but I'll have to get new picture first before I can show it... So this'll have to suffice for now.

Been moving my stuff around my flat for the morning. Boxes, clothing, stuff, stuff, stuff... Didn't know my closet had that much stuff collected in there (nor didn't I remember it was THAT deep!). All that because of the impending renovations, new water pipelines or something. I guess we'll see once they start tomorrow.

Bought a second car, too. Works good as spare part provider for my current one, since they're same model. :3

Another day, another painting...

Started up on another painting project, so here's starting images so far about the progress. These have mostly just the original look of the wall as well base paint layer so far. Have to upload more later today.




On the other news, I got finally new car, functions lot better than my old one. Just need to adjust few things and check the fuel usage for now... Otherwise, been too busy to do much else for the time being.

Paintings and hot weathers

Well, life's been rather busy lately, but here we go... First some news from art front.


Day 10... Added more details and stuff around. Again.


Day 12. It's finally done!!! And just in time too, because the next day that room was needed for guests and other stuff use. Managed to add some flowers and other stuff, like that barn, and finish them as well. Now if I'd just find some moment to rest for a bit...

Anyway, on the other stuff. Job's been busy as heck past few days and going to be so for this week at least. Still, I'm going to have day, two off, so some art-time is planned... Unless someone decides to visit and crash at my place like last sunday when my planned art-time was. And the days off before that... and before that...

But oh well. I just need to wait until the summer's over so these visits cease and I get to concentrate. And maybe finally get away from this pesky heat wave this summer's been producing. Hot weathers and thunderstorms... Already lost my cellphone to this summer.

Well, more stuff later.

Starting a blog...

So, I thought I'd start a little art blog like this... Yes, I used to have LiveJournal account, but I deleted it some time ago, having been unused for long time.

As for this one, I'm planning to use this blog to show the progress of my current stuff that is going on, larger projects and the like. With occasional peek at what's going on about in my life and stuff.

Not sure how much I will update this with my current job though, as it tends to keep me rather busy most of the time.

Speaking of my job, I'm currently painting a large wall mural of sorts at my workplace, here are some images of the progress so far.


Day 1. Mostly spent the day preparing the 'canvas', cleaning it up and stuff as well prepping my tools.


Day 2... Painted the base. Nothing fancy yet.


Day 4. Painted the sky and some backgroung forests so far.


Day 8. Had to take some time off between painting due heat wave, it is still progressing fairly fast. Started on the closer details so far, just needs some more before I can get to painting the remaining stuff.
