FO - A horrible little mutant by Gikairan
FO - A horrible little mutant
Terrible thing
Look at it
Impure and scienced upon.
Just awful

Also oops I left this as a WIP for like... 2 weeks before picking it up again. I rarely do anything when I get home from work, because I just feel exhausted all the time for no reason @_@. I'm no longer lifting heavy stuff every day, but I feel exactly the same as when I did. And then I only really have weekends to do... pretty much everything. Which is normally a lot

Started off as many conversations going back to Fallout. Wanted to get some more updated art of the guys, but then... yeah left it for two weeks. 
Finally got the motivation to finish by seeing what kind of different SAIs smoother edged brushes do to a cel-shading attempt
... and promptly remembered why I only use it for lineart. Me and it do not get along
Didn't really want to upload it with a blank background, so quickly painted something in about 20 minutes in Photoshop
Torn effect is a brush from Torn Paper Brushes by TriCornDesign

Alchide of Lightning by Gikairan
Alchide of Lightning
Yeaahh look at me, eventually getting around to drawing/ designing at least one of those slightly neglected characters. Probably even more shameful considering hes.... one of the oldest surviving characters I have. Oops.

so run down:
Near-immortal that is a vessel for the lightning/ electricity magic in the world
Despite this, he does not have the greatest understanding of how his powers work, and prefers not to use them
He was exiled from his people for his lack of control and the dangers that posed
He lived alone for many years, resorting to whatever means to survive. Mainly doing his own hunting, scavenging for things to sell or eat, but has been known to steal
Is a pretty quiet guy, who prefers to stay at the sidelines listening in to people and weighing everything up. Hes careful in his wording, and tends to waste few words. If hes come to a conclusion, its not without a lot of thought. 


Picture wise, I had hoped to make this a quick little thing, perhaps even more limited palette things to get on with during lunch breaks. Buuttt that didn't happen. 
NBD tho, cus I was rly liking how this was coming out and couldn't wait to finish it.... except general coming home during the week and sitting exhausted meant I had no chance in the week to get back to work
That, and I have more of an idea of how he looks

Limited Palette- #76 by Gikairan
Limited Palette- #76
Limited palette taken from 100 Palette Challenge by FallenZephyr

You know what I found out recently? My last stupidly expensive purchase of a Surface Pro 2 can be turned into a pressure sensitive expensive purchase with but a single download from Wacom
So of course I'm going to install things on it and spend my lunch times painting

Still really trying to get a feel for the thing, especially as the colours are way different to my usual monitor (harder to distinguish between darks), i can get a pretty bad glare from the office lights and its not as accurate with its pressure sensitivity and general pointing. So I haven't been messing around with anything too ~challenging~ yet. 
Thought it might also actually be kinda fun to do some limited palette work with it, sooo now theres this. A previous work doodle from last year, now with more colours! 

Honestly doing stuff like this in my lunch time is really fun? I'm still in the mood to work at my desk (compared to trying my best to lay on an office chair at home and relax) and it means I can ~do something~.

Zah - Jan 2015 by Gikairan
Zah - Jan 2015
Woops 2014 was a terrible year full of 0 motivation to do anything. Lets try and make 2015 better \( o.o)/

... Like go back to trying to get a bunch of people proper design pictures that aren't awful and I feel embarrassed about half way through shading them
Even though my life circumstances haven't changed, and have in fact got more hectic (Post. Christmas. Retuurrnsss)... I gotta set more time aside to actually Do Things.

Start the year with my favourite dragon boy, because hes ALWAYS the one I start with

Adjusted a few of his outfit colours
Messed around with his ol' magical spear thinger to make it look better... which ended up "welp that looks like a normal weapon o WELL"
Managed to draw something of him without any kind of magical show off
aaand procrastinated for over a week due to feeling Dead After Work

Welp lets see if we can keep going

First of all, kinda sorry for not doing a lot lately. My inspiration has just completely dried up and gone @_@. About the only things that happen are dumb dragon doodles, and I already feel bad enough for basically spending a month throwing out dragons. It might be the stuff that actually gets noticed, but I feel bad for not paying attention to my OCs and all their stuff for a few comments... I just can't think of anything for them to do. So dumb dragon doodles it is. 
I should really do something with my OCs in general, to actually get people interested in them, but their stories are in pieces as I try and make them not suck... and they wont co-operate with me long enough to fix the bits that need fixing (Consequently I also have about 10 million AUs of every possible scenario...). That and I think people would only be interested in a comic- something I'm not anywhere near confident enough in my skills with to even attempt, on top of... well a story that has massive gaping time holes. Not to mention motivation and time (Time especially, I'll explain in a second). So woops no one will ever know anything forever. 

Second, time is going to be VERY limited for me shortly.
You see, I start a full time job on Tuesday. It's temporary, but highly likely to be permanent- at least thats what I was told at the interview. So I only really have 2 days a week to myself from now on. I can't really complain though, I'm bloody lucky to have this job. It's one of the very few things I could actually apply for in my area- everything else seemed to be manager roles, and... yeah theres no way they'd hire a completely untrained person for THAT. It was also the first (... and only) place that asked for an interview. At least I left a good impression with someone. 
But ahhh, I'm really nervous. I don't even know why, the hard bits already done after all. I just don't 100% know what I'll be doing, so I have worries. I'm sure I'll be fine, but that doesn't really stop irrational worrying about everything. 
Also while I'm on the subject, I don't suppose anyone is reading this has any idea about what the hell to do with food? The area I'm going to be in has very limited fast food options, and I'm bloody picky about things like sandwiches and get tired of things easily. My options in the area are pretty much KFC and a sandwich shop, or bringing things in from home... which is what I struggle with. I've spent the last 3 years with pretty much any kind of food you can think of within a 1 mile radius to where I spent the day, so having such limited options is... yeah. That and I have the most uncreative mother ever when it comes to food.... which has left ME with barely any idea of what the hell I can bring. I've already thought about making pasta bakes to take in, since the ones in the supermarkets have such low quality meat the turn me right off, but thats.... pretty much it. I don't know the facilities I'll have, but I'm pretty sure there will be a microwave and kettle at least. FOOD IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME, IT IS LIKE NUMBER ONE OF MY WORRIES. That and I literally start to feel ill if I don't eat enough, so I don't want that to happen at work/ while I'm coming home. 


Also as for other time related things
HELP I HAVE FALLEN INTO FLIGHTRISING AND CANNOT GET OUT
I am literally spending like, all day on this website....
YESTERDAY I HIT THE 75K TREASURE LIMIT ON JIGSAW. I EARN 1.2K TREASURE PER JIGSAW IN 2-3 MINUTES. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY HOURS OF PUZZLES THAT IS? TOO MANY. TOO MANY HOURS OF PUZZLES.
This isn't helping the fact I'm not doing anything productive. I'm sitting here earning virtual gold for pixel dragons. I MUST OBTAIN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DRAGONS THOUGH. I NEED ALL THESE RARE DRAGONS WITH ALL THESE MARKINGS AND THEY WILL MAKE PRETTY BABIES THAT WILL SELL FOR LOTS OF MONIES AND MAKE ME A RICH DRAGON MOTHER.
I know I have been waiting a literal eternity for this site because PETSITES AND DRAGONS, YES. YES I NEED THIS. But it has stolen my lifffffeeeeee. I need to finish my last life stealer (DRAGON AGE.........), but no... I'm just going to put together the same puzzles for the millionth time so I can have pretty dragons.
In my defence, I'm not finishing DAII because I'm actually getting somewhere in FR. ..... Who decided to put a Blood Mage with a Pride Demon and like 20 billion Shades? I mean, really? Strongest demon, most annoying mage, a good number of low level enemies?? I hate you Bioware, I really do. I want to know the ending, but I can't beat this battle u_u. At least my pretty pixel dragons are getting prettier. 
I think those two combined have pretty much been the reasons I haven't been all that productive over the last 2 months.... seriously. Life stealers. Don't get into them unless you expect months to pass by without any recollection of what just happened I:
