Now Playing Tracks

Today is quite stormy, but yesterday was quite nice weather for blueberry picking (just a very light drizzle from time to time) and the bushes were weighed down with a fantastic amount of fruit. Gotta get ‘em while they’re fresh, so I picked about 15 pounds of berries in short order. Would have picked more, but the blueberry farm closes kinda early (5pm)!
Blueberries are intensely photogenic.

"Little Wing," the impromptu name given to Newt’s first attempt to create Earth’s very own kaiju. For an endeavor that was meant to ensure a new method of defense against the precursors, Little Wing was considered a failure.

Little Wing was small, stunted to stand at around Newt’s chest height, with a body that made little sense. His head was large, lacking most of the teeth, save for the canine teeth and smaller teeth in the back (and those looked more suited for chewing plant food than meat), and the spines adorning the chest and neck were soft and malleable (and able to be moved outward away from his skin).

The front legs were large and bulky, with an elongated finger and membrane that seemed like flight was considered during his development, but discarded. The long finger is kept tucked in to a pocked of skin on the foreleg (until Little Wing gets excited, at which point he loses most control over, well, everything). The back legs are small and bird-like, not made for any sort of speed or mobility. He can certainly WALK, but with an odd loping gait that would leave him at the mercy of faster predators if left in the wild.

Little Wing’s tail was (at it’s center) fat and short, with two longer tendrils at the side, with a large flap of skin between them. This too seemed to hint at flight, a larger rudder for him to use, but the tendrils on the sides were simply skin and cartilage, not a rigid bone that would enable Little Wing to spread them far enough to utilize the flap of skin like a sail. His tail tends to flap around with little control as he walks about.

The bioluminescent tendrils at his sides were also out of place, seemingly stuck on haphazardly while he grew. Little Wing tended to keep these stuck close to his body and hooked around his back legs.

Little Wing also has something very VERY special about him, but I’ll leave that for later. He was seen as a failure AT FIRST. I imagine Newt making more, but Little Wing has a very unique property that sets him apart from the rest.

(Also, his name is Little Wing in whatever language it is spoken in. It’s not just the English “Little Wing” it’s Little Wing in Chinese or German or Japanese or whatever.)

ILU Little Wing you adorable baby burd.

I’ve mostly been posting about this project on Twitter, but I’m in a bit of a frustrated mood because I have to force myself to stop working on this and go to bed. So it’s not done! Base colors laid out, and I began getting the glow/lighting roughed in. I still have a lot to do.

OTACHI SCARF. I posted a bit ago on how I had my scarf epiphany and figured out how to get them made and sell them and so forth (with some extra designs posted to my Patreon). This however, is taking it a bit further. This particular one is mostly for ME as it needs the assist of my sewing capable sister (and is a good deal longer than what I plan for other scarves). For the most part, any scarves I sell will be one-sided only, with the backside just plain white. This is going to be two sided, two halves sewn together. At one end will be white braids with either light blue, white, or clear beading to mimic the very ends of Otachi’s tongue (oh man, I should look into some glow in the dark options).

The way I need to order fabric, we’ll be getting enough to make two of these. If the first goes well, then we could make a second one to sell or have a giveaway for (or giveaway to one of my Patreon supporters). I hope to have this made for when I go sell at Rose City Comicon. Along with maybe a scarf compromised of Newt’s tattoos (which has been roughed in and is well on it’s way). And I should probably make a scarf design that someone would actually buy too, because PacRim stuff at cons has been a giant big dud so far.

Ooh, what a fantastic design!
