Random crane Elf maiden DnD Doodles
This came together last night at D&D.  Wanted to do some minor known twisting of the crane in the back to see if it helped the picture.  Don't think it really added anything except a slight annoyance.  I'm trying to subtly play with proportions.

2017 03 17 - Someone who has been around
I have a roomate who loves puns as much as I do >: )

It's kinda sad, but I think I have to declare arts and crafts an officially dead comic.  I tried my best to surge interest into this comic but I don't think it's ever going to be regular again, at least not while I have a job and a packed schedule, gonna go the way of my youtube chanel.  Sure, there's going to be the occasional update as I find jokes that are just too good to not illustrate, but not like it was in college and post college.  Looking into buying a house these days.

Callisto - Warm the rest of his life
No, she never said this during the series but it's -- absolutely -- something she would say.  Just a little vacation piece that I treated myself to.  I have no picks at this one it looks really nice.  I guess if I woudl change something about it I would probably make the hair in the back not quite as long.

Copic Doodles
So this little interesting bit I allowed my copic markers to layer up for a while and I just experimented with them for a while... turned off my figure making Brian and just let the ink flow for a while... The scan of this one looks nothing like the sketchbook.  I have blue based black markers which made it hard to pick up in the grayscale scan... maybe if I felt like it I would try again but I kinda like what's going on in this one... I mighht borrow some of these shapes in some digital work later

Okay it's been a few weeks now so... let's get this wrapped up. 

The last day that we did traveling was a Thursday.  Friday was going to be all travel, long plane ride and stuff, nothing to write home about there. 

It turned out that there was an unexpected time crunch for getting into London, It was mostly my fault for being ill-prepared and having to cram a bunch of site seeing into the last day that we were there.  I kinda always knew that the trip over to London was going to be the most expensive part of the trip and I was right, roughly 150 pounds for the both of us round trip in a day.  bout 200 bucks.  In retrospect, I think I should've researched getting a multi-use train pass if there was such a thing.  On the other hand, the time before I set aside a sizable amount of money to go on vacation and didn't get close to budget which was a kind of disappointment.  Means I have the capabilities of getting funds but not the ideas to spend the funds on.  So... mixed feelings on that. 
We ended up at Paddington Station which is a huge nexus of people traveling.  We got some sub-way passes for the day and made our way to the tower of London.  We got tickets for a tour and a guidebook which my friend got in the end.  I suppose that's fair since I got the guidebook for stone-henge ^_^  We ended up getting a tour from a delightful Beefeater who had several stories to tell.  The main thing that I took away from the stories was that the English are very sorry for all the nobles that had to die for revolutions to happen in their kingdom.  I don't remember the number exactly but many people ended up being killed publicly and privately there.  After the tour we headed to see the crown jewels.  I think there might have been a tour there as well but I think they also wanted extra money for that.  How the public gets to see the crown jewels was kinda neat.  They have a slow conveyor belt that you can ride as much as we liked.  We went through twice to get both angles.  The speed is just perfect for getting that glittering effect.  There was lots of other stuff that goes with the jewels.  cape, slippers, rod, orb... all the D&D slots get filled ha-ha. 

There is also a banquet set that was just massive.  There was a huge cauldron-like piece that could hold something ridiculous like 50+ bottles of wine.  I think one of the more amusing things though was there was a spot for upkeep donations and there was a few US dollars inside. 

After that we walked around the outside.  This is definitely one of the best places to look at London from.  There were many lava-lamp-like sky scrapers intermixed with this ancient architecture.  We saw Tower bridge while we were looking around for sites to see inside the tower.  Finally we ended up getting into the White tower which was a kind of Medieval warfare museum and warfare throughout the ages.  It was really awesome to see so many knight armors in one spot.  I know I'm going to be borrowing what I saw there in my drawings in the future... especially for Maxine XD.  There was just so much history and facts coming at me I couldn't possibly absorb it all, I'm glad my friend was taking so many pictures that day.  At one point we were standing in front of a dragon made completely out of knight armor.   

Finally it was time to move on.  We wandered out of the tower and about a block away there was a fancy Italian restaurant where my friend had a real calzone and I had some kind of stuffed chicken.  Very yummy, she thought that it was the best thing that we had eaten so far.  After our much needed meal we got back on the sub-way and stopped at Big Ben.  I took one of the few 'selfies' that I will ever take because... come on, Ben at Big Ben?  I'd kick myself forever if I didn't get that. 

Nearby, not even a block away was the London Eye, (which is that giant ferris wheel that lights up) we sat there for a while recovering from the many steps we took that day.  There was this wailing minstral that only knew the first few words to a song that he just played over and over again.  We stayed there listening to him for over a half hour at least until 7:00 when the bell tower rang its' time, I got a video of that on my phone. 

We walked down the riverside for a while to get a better view of the eye where we found a world war 2 memorial.  We didn't end up going across the river to the carnival type place because that was just too many people for the day. 

only a little bit later did the sun completely go down and we took the sub-way back to the train station where we ended up getting back to Bristol late.  We were both exhausted by the end of the day and we both slept. 

The last day was nothing but travel to get back home. 

Overall it was a fantastic trip.  I'm so happy I went!  It did kinda give me an appreciation for the space that I have here at home and the politeness for Minnesota traffic. 

Until next time!
