Pinned toot

Reposting my pinned . Been on masto for about 2 years or so, found myself tooting most about tabletop stuff so here I am.

I am forever jumping from one thing to another so dont expect much in the way of consistency from me.

Currently working on:
Improving my skills in Blender 3d
(See my thingiverse link in my profile)
Various mini printing and painting projects
Writing short spec fic stories

largest strike ever in the history of ever against neoliberal reform is happening in india
!!!! 200 million people !!!!

So I got a commission to create a dice tower based on the Ghostbusters firehouse for 3d printing. Was a really fun project so if anyone else wants something similar hit me up!

Due to that bike accident a few days ago I have had to get a wheel and a few other bits replaced which is running up a bill of ~£100 which I can ill-afford as I'm down on money due to how much unpaid sick leave I've had to take this year. Anything you can spare greatly appreciated!

Finally got a chance to do some sculpting again. Been re-reading Hellboy and have always loved the Kriegaffe so here's one:

Hellblade spoilers 

Also during the valravn puzzles everytime it used funky visual distortion to signify a psychosis effect/illusion I was just like, yeah I guess thats kind of magical but if I wanted to experience this type of visual disturbance I'd just take my glasses off.

On the subject of accessibility, it seriously needs a mono audio mode. Binaural sound is great I'm sure but while my equipment is stereo-capable, I am not and its a pain having stuff just fade out for a few words at a time.

Hellblade spoilers 

I'm only partway through the game so please no spoilers. I am becoming more convinced that you play as one of Senua's headmates rather than Senua herself.
Partially because of how some of the cutscenes are framed, partially cause you never seem fully in control. Mostly though because after a scene where the voices convince her to self-harm, if you try to move the camera to look at her face, senua turns away from you so you cant see her face or the wound. I love this detail!

Went over tha handlebars on my home from work today so here's your periodic reminder to wear your fucking helmet at all times when cycling. Seriously, I work in a brain injury unit, I know how bad it can be.

Sometimes I watch video essays and I'm nodding along and following the logic and arguments and I think "wait, is this a coherent logic or am i just being swept along by the presentation"

Then I watch something with all the style and none of the coherency and I'm like "oh, yeah ok my trash radar is working"

If you, for whatever reason, want to make sure your code does not get used by Google - license it under AGPL :) #LifeHack opensource.google/docs/using/a

Art hot take 

I mean this is brought to you by someone who hates working with white paint so where possible just uses typex and white gel pens to achieve the same goals.

But still it's like 'this work is so important it is vital that future generations experience this in its original state'.

Art hot take 

Maybe I'm just bad, but it seems like intentionally using archival-quality materials for art is maybe putting your work on a bit of a pedestal...

@ackthrice There was a whole panel at Metatopia about defining terms and the term "indie" took the bulk of the panel.

(And nothing was resolved as a result).

I think the most annoying oxymoronic phrase in vogue at the moment is 'indie publisher'

Wanted to do some industrial grime effects so put this together from some old bits and pieces I had lying around.
