He'd just found himself a warm nice home ;_;

poor cockroach? nothing bad really happened to him. I didn't even smoosh him, not even after he came out. We just sorta stared at each other blankly for a bit, then I was like 'I'm too tired for this shit, I'm going to bed'.

he didn't like it in there you guys. He was scratching to get out the whole time, he just got kinda confused. He seemed totally relieved to come out.

It's totally boring inside my ear. I promise.

Hahah taz I would have thought so previous to this experience. I've learned something about myself. I can survive for short periods with insects inside my head.

I think he fell off my sloped ceiling by accident. He wasn't on a spelunking mission.

Also, I did this random thing last night, should I just slap it on a shirt template to get us some points?

The characters look great with the color, Paul. I think what's pulling it back a little bit is that pixellated star background, which looks a bit rough, and it's a largish portion of the design.

Man the worst thing happened to me last night, guys. It's so gross I don't even know whether to tell you and give you nightmares.

Thanks for the feedback, Lidija. What would you suggest to improve this part of the design? Use a public domain image of stars / galaxy and halftone it or draw a star pattern with more defined shapes?

And that cockroach story...gosh. That's the stuff of urban legend.

Tiffany, I would let the blue show through on more areas like the fingers to give more definition. But my preference is almost always for more line work. I'm a sketchy guy, I guess.

The colors aren't quite working for me as everything has similar values. Maybe knock down the colors a bit to make them more muted?

I like the characters, though. Very polite and peculiar.

Jeff gave me a heads-up on some stuff coming down the pipe...We should have a secret base somewhere where we can discuss all these things discreetly.

both of those approaches would work.

secret base chats can be had through FB messages. Are we all friends on there? Add me :)

Paul are you on facebook? You need to find me and Lidija on there so we can make a secret platypie group and gossip.

And I'll work on the doggy a bit more, though I like the eyeball melting colors. :-D Just my personal preference. I don't think it would print in a million years, but POINTS.

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

the only color that's bothering me a little is the green, others are working for me. But I'm color-weird maybe.

you can send messages to multiple recipients, that's the easiest way to gossip over there without making a whole group and stuff.

This is an illustration I did for a charity exhibition. I had to work on the theme of equality, and I sweated to get an idea. Until I realized that diversity, it's just a matter of viewing distance.

NO DIFFERENCE - It's only a matter of distance

This is a preview. Probably the exhibition organizers expect more classic projects. But, in some ways, even my design emphasizes equality: from the distance, we all are equally invisibles :)

you sure you wanna know? Last night a little cockroach crawled down my ear, the little fucker. I go to bed and I'm just settling down and I feel a little tickle somewhere around my ear, so I kinda swipe at it. We get little spiders or ants in that rooms sometimes. Then a minute later I feel like something is kinda rustling around wayyyy inside my ear. First I think I'm going nuts. Wait a little, stick my finger in there, press from the outside... nope, something definitely moving around. Creepiest fucking feeling EVER. Get up, get a q tip, wriggle it around, wonder what's worse - having it alive or dead in there... anyways nothing works so moot point. Hop around a little and just wait in front of the mirror, when I feel him backing out, I guess he didn't like it in there either. So he made it back out into my earlobe and I swiped him down into the sink, where we just stared at each other a little and I went back to bed. I guess we had bonded through the horror. He looked freaked out too. He was about 8 mm long.

holy FUCK Lidija....I...I..I can't even...

AHahhaha it's so funny you said that, I was browsing through previous pages catching up and right as I see your dog design and BAM! It reminded of your awesome town! That game is so amazing it gives me such a warm nostalgic feeling even though i played the 1st game on GC for like 1 day.

Anyway I ramble on too much, I'll bother you later on today so you can hop over to my town! I put the huge Trex fossil on my house haha!

Also, HORRIFYING STORY LIDIJA HOLY CRAP!! I get so desperate if I feel anything blocking my hearing! I used to get water stuck down my ear all the time so I got a little traumatized lol.

Since you shared that story I'll share a funny/kinda gross story about cockroaches too:

When i was about 7 or 8 I used to sit on the floor in front of the tv to watch stuff. My Mom used to take siestas at the middle of the day on her work break and she HATED that anyone would make any noise that'd wake her up. So anyway I was sitting with my hands on the floor when i felt some tingling and itching on my hand and arm. I ignored it for a while but when I looked to scratch there was a HUGE cockroach just walking around hanging out on me like it was her vacation spot. I screamed and freaked out running around the house shaking the thing off and as it jumped off and went away, my mom showed up super pissed that I woke her up and gave me a good beating with a leather belt. Strong Latin women lay down a beating like there's no tomorrow haha! And now that's why I hate cockroaches and leather belts. The end :D

aww elly!!!! I'm really against beating kids. I know tons of people all over the world think it's ok to discipline kids that way but I just can't get over it. Like Louis CK says, kids are the most vulnerable, defenseless, dependent people and the ONLY ONES you are allowed by law to hit. Sorry the roach got you into such big trouble!!

and sorry I gave you all nightmares with my freakish encounter :) At least I didn't have to go to the ER in the middle of the night to have him flushed out or anything.

OK I think I added all you guys on FB so now we can have supersecret conversations in all directions :D

ellygeh
ellygeh profile pic Alumni

Hahaha in the culture i grew up in, giving kids a slap was perfectly normal and I'm pretty thankful to my parents I got some good beatings, I was a brat back then so I'd say I deserved them too :P. And by beating I meant a slap or two(with a belt lol), it was never a spanking that left me with a black eye or something. That is 100% bad and something my parents never did and I do not approve of at all! The story to me is pretty hilarious 'cause I got screwed over twice and it seemed like an evil plan from the cockroach! I guess my wording was a bit wrong there lol.

And as I said, I was a brat and I'd bother my mom while she was sleeping on purpose, that's why she was so mad when that happened haha!

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

hahaahh kids are impossible sometimes, it's true!! But this time around it really was the cockroach that should have gotten the beating!!!

I know it's a regular thing, here it's not very unusual either, and in the previous generation it was totally normal to smack your kids when they're being bad. But my parents never did it so to me it always seemed sort of barbaric, even when I was tiny. But yeah, when you do get smacked occasionally I guess it seems like a normal thing - my husband got beat quite often by his mom and his attitude is 'meh, you gotta smack 'em sometimes', so I guess everyone adjusts to the way they are raised. I'm still not letting him ever hit Babezilla though. First time he said 'well he's gonna misbehave, we're gonna have to' I was like yeah, well when you have a baby you can hit him all you want, this one is mine so hands off. lol.

ellygeh
ellygeh profile pic Alumni

Aahhahha yeah I totally get it! i don't think i would ever have to courage to smack my kids either. Maybe a slight pinch or two if they're bad. My wife says she'll do the whole grounded thing, which NEVER worked for me. A smack totally did though lol. I guess I'll have to wait and see how it will go. Parenting sure is hard, I see my brother do it so I know it's a lot of work, but really rewarding!

celandinestern profile pic Alumni

oooo elly's card is TEH BESTEST!!!! SO COOOOOOL!!!!

haha yeah, husband keeps saying 'you'll see, he's gonna start being impossible and you won't know what to do!!' Different kids react differently though. I could always be talked through things when I was a kid. Babezilla is only tiny still but even now when he gets whiny and wants me to carry him and starts throwing fits it's enough just to hold him for a minute and say 'listen, you are heavy and I can't carry you any more, so now you're gonna have to sit in the stroller, ok?' and 90% of the time he actually goes 'yes!' and just sits down. So I guess just different approaches for different kids.

I'm putting some stuff up on redbubble now. God all this file prep is SOOOOMUUUCHPOINTLESSWORRRRRRRK

this is the reason I hateee putting anything up anywhere, laziness to prep a million diff files for the same thing.

have you tried teepublic? thats the only place I've made any money at all.

Chaymation

The prep for Redbubble seems so much worse than Society 6. but then again Soc 6 annoys me because they use the same template for greetings cards AND iphone covers. Despite them being totally different shapes. so if you want a design that fills the greetings card then it looks awful on a phone and if you line it up for the phone then it looks stupidly small on the card. why they can't have two templates I don't know, or failing that let me choose to sell it on either cards OR cases, so that I can just sell the one that works.

Not that I've sold anything, so it's irrelevant!

TheInfamousBaka

I seriously need to sign up for Redbubble. S6 is bust unless you're internet famous already.

TeePublic is awesome! Perry has been very successful there. I've bought like 6 of his designs from there, lol

I've sold some of my stuff as stickers on redbubble, I need to add some more stuff actually. It really drops off if you don't keep on updating it.

teepublic has this sort of crowdfunding model, but most dont really reach the pre-funded, so they message you and tell you that theyre gonna sell it anyway lol and its on an order basis for the customer, you get $5 per tee. theres no hold on usage of it, so you can use it wherever else you want as well.

Its not like s6 where you can sell anything, they just choose what they like. Tons of pop culture stuff that have been rejected here, but other stuff can work too. I have an owl that sold like 4 tees, ($20 made)

most people as far as I can tell just got added since almost none get funded fully and sell by order

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

Brilliant!! I'll send them some stuff.

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

man I'm barely awake. I keep going to bed way late because I'm trying to upload stuff and get all these new accounts in order, and I'm starting to hallucinate I swear. If only I had something to show for it - last night all I managed was one upload each to S6 and Redbubble. And these are all the pieces that are pretty much print-ready. Wait till I get to the messy files where I have to do cleanup first.... This is sort of like spring cleaning or moving house really. you're opening up stuff you didn't know you had and realising it's filthy and it all needs scrubbing :)

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

also did you guys notice how the forum sort of died again? It was booming for a while with the initial enthusiasm from the houses but I sort of feel that apathy is crawling in again.

TheInfamousBaka
TheInfamousBaka profile pic Alumni

I agree. I think Stacy being absent as of late isn't helping with the houses since he was the ring leader of it all. Hopefully once he's able to come back we can get things moving again.
