I was 11 when I met you. And I was terrified. I am sure I’ve told you the story before! I’ll have to find it and link back.
I think that’s how most stories about this particular thing should start. A little fear never truly hurt anyone. At least, it didn’t me, not in the long run. If anything it gave me a morbid fascination that lasted me for a very long time.
Alien: Covenant is out in the cinema this week, and I am nervously excited about seeing it. (Which I am really hoping I can) I’d love to feel like that little 11 year old again, utterly terrified about what is unfolding before my very eyes. And yet, I’m nervous. There is always that underlying worry that something won’t live up to expectations. Mostly because Aliens have been a big part of my life in one way or another and I don’t even know if I can find them scary anymore. Even though they’ve been described as the most terrifying creatures on movie history. To me, they’re home!!
I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing an Alien film in the cinema. Which makes me rather sad, and I a, pleased that I, finally having the chance to rectify this issue. I saw the AvP films on the big screen but I don’t think that they should count!
I’m going to try and avoid any film reviews until after I have seen it and certainly don’t wish for any spoilers to come my way! So if you do get to see the film and want to talk to me about it, please check to see if I have seen it or not first!
I’m just happy that the Aliens series getting another chapter to its glorious heritage.
I know it’s been a bit since I posted – I did promise to try harder, looks like I failed a bit there.
I drew this guy up today and I wanted to write something down about him here, so I didn’t forget it!
His name is Zeke – shortened from Ezekiel – and he was going to be a part of an AU of my characters that I was once upon a time working on. Somehow I fell out of love with the idea, but this guy and the form of Torquemada (I’ll write about him later) stuck with me.
He was meant to be the main characters partner and a mercenary working for a different faction (There were two warring factions, and many bands fighting for those factions) to the main character. It was a post apocalyptical world with monsters and that sort of thing; where the characters were fantasy races and all that jazz!
Zeke, is a revenant. Where, when killed, he revives. So for his mercenary unit he was the expendable character that was usually getting eaten, maimed, shot, stabbed etc, so that the rest of his merc group could accomplish whatever task it was they had set out to do.
I just thought it would be pretty heart-wrenching for the main character to lose someone they cared about. Only for them to be on the receiving end of a very poor tasting joke!
Maybe I just have a mean sense of humour!
Still, I wanted to post this up to show that I’m not just drawing boobs and penises over on twitter. Promise!
I got to admit, I’ve been feeling a bit directionless lately.
Since closing down all my social media gallery spaces, there has been something missing. It’s been hard to stick by the decision to leave DeviantART, but I still think it was the right choice overall. I’ve missed the interaction a lot as well as the decent people that I once knew on there. I’m keeping in touch with a few of them via Twitter and it’s been a lot of good fun drawing for and with those few.
I keep looking around for somewhere more suitable, gallery wise, but not come across anything that seems to fit me yet.
I miss blogging as well, I totally burned out on posting every day on my other blog, so I just archived it here instead. This blog has always felt more like home to me, even if the fangirling has long stopped! When I get to the laptop (rather than the iPad) I’ll post about an awesome blog that you should all follow that I had been enjoying lately that reminds me a bit of what I was like 6 years ago!
I’m going to try to get back into reading as well. So I can write some reviews. Just get back into the swing of things again.
Also, more art. But I draw a lot of boobs these days so not sure what I have in the ways of age appropriate content!!
I think I shined a bit too brightly on my art blog and am feeling burned out already.
I always do this, rather than pace myself well to keep things going, I grow myself into it all and burn out on it quickly.
I’ve been sketching characters and putting them on my art twitter instead, but I do feel a bit bad/down about the doodles thing. I guess I can’t change what’s in my heart & passion for anthro/furry & characters really sticks longer than anything else – even though it’s a pointless outlet for my art. As in, I’ll never be able to sell/market it. And I don’t think there is a viable way to make a living out of it either – even using things like Patreon.
Still, I enjoy it the most, even with the negative experiences I’ve had.
