Monstrous paints.

One day, I will finish a painting. TODAY IS NOT THAT DAY!

This is, of course, the slightly more progressed version of this WiP, done while at Continuum 15. It’s mostly me trying to learn to use Clip Studio on my iPad, and… ki-ii-inda getting into a groove for it? I am actually pretty happy how the overpaint is turning out, I just… wish it didn’t take me like five hundred hours to get to that point which… ugh. Go figure.

Also, I need to fix those drips. Yeah. Those ones. Also, lol what even are light sources?

Jeeze. This is why I never finish anything. Cannot. Unsee…

The Monstrous.

Tentacle dad, tentacle dad
Oil-powered, goop-covered tentacle dad
Hunting stuff
Most cringe-worthy puns
Tentacle dad.

So some of you may recall we have a Tradition of always playing a TTRPG game at cons. This Continuum, Alex is running us Monster of the Week. Obviously, I had to immediately grab The Monstrous’s playbook… and totally cannibalized Davey1 because yeah lol originality what’s that? For this version, Davey is a fifty-something ex-Gulf War vet whose “Gulf War Syndrome” involved being possessed/corrupted by some kind of oil-and-lightning-based void horror. Now, he can discorporate into oily smoke to pass through solid objects, as well as use weird mind control powers to make sure his fellow team members are staying hydrated, remembering to pack their jumpers, and other assorted Team Dad duties.

Relatedly: I still totally need to replace my scanner! (The linework for the original is purple and the paper is white, believe it or not, which really says… something about the iPhone’s camera.)

  1. Technically Davey, as Lee, already showed up in the DnD game I ran last year, as the demon “Lord Chaudhry,” and ended the game possessing one of the player characters because lol. []

Two quick updates!

Update Ye Firste: Print books

Because I finally got around to it, print versions of Liesmith and Stormbringer are now available for direct-from-me ordering, for those of who who don’t want to/can’t/whatever buy the Amazon versions.

Update Ye Seconde: Continuum

Apparently Continuum is, like, next week? Yikes.

As per usual, I will, indeed, be there. I’m currently scheduled on between zero and two panels:

  1. Superhero Burnout, Friday 9:30pm.
  2. Post-Capitalist Societies, Sunday1 5pm.

I say “between zero and two” because there’s currently contentious around both of them for various reasons, but failing massive… failing, that’s where I’ll be, if anyone feels like listening to me blather in public.

Update: Okay, not so much with the superheroes. The tl;dr is the panel was split between people who agreed with the premise (i.e. yours truly) and those that didn’t. I was interested in the panel in the context of it being a place to gripe about the genre in general, and the hyper-commodification of it in e.g. the MCU in particular, but in the end that wasn’t where things were going, and it felt like keeping things as they were was just going to get… emotionally fraught for all involved. So that’s a peace out from me on that one.

  1. I know it says Saturday in the program, but it got moved. []
