WEAVERCAT:
Weavercat is a 24 yr-old female thing who doesn't know what she wants to do in life. A current art-student who has rediscovered her love of prehistoric critters. I'd like to work as scientific/medical illustrator someday.

    While a professional artist will make a point sit down and work on their art every day, an amateur only works on their art when the “mood” is right."

    In our Art Career Orientation class we talk about what we want from the school and from a future career. What I expect to learn from the school is how to counteract my biggest flaw: A lack of discipline. I am relearning to just do it. Not wait. Don’t flip-flop. Keep schedules and STICK TO THEM. It’s a neat class and I’m already taking bits from it for my use. I have a non-distracting big pad of a calender that is keeping me on track.

  • [Time-Stamp: 11:50pm MT] Weird stuff is going on.

    Ah dear, this is what happens when I have a few things on the mind. Out comes the weird. I’m not going to explain it but there is a little Wanting Deer in the corner for Wolfyttwisted.

  • So, idea for the Tarot Jam in Hetherev. Az fits the role of The Devil far too well. I just… I tried to fit her in with Justice or one of the Swords but she won’t fit.

    She’s bound to her own addictions, matierialism (gold/money), anger, and instinctual. This chain though, is self-imposed. She can slip them at anytime but her fears keep her chained to the throne she’s made of her vices. It’s an odd thing because she is her own worst enemy at times. She has human intellect to rule over her body’s more animalistic insticts. However, that is a problem. Intellect cannot hope to contain instinct. Her very form represents all those ancient wild earthly desires that humanity has repressed. She is a character not known for thinking ahead preferring to live in the present. 

    Maybe I’m thinking about this too much but it fits for her far, far too well. The Devil  seems to be one of the most misunderstood cards. It has a myrid of conflicting meanings and I’m going with the more ‘ancient’ meanings instead of the religious meanings. 

    Let’s see, I have The Card number on her shackle, but I want to incorporate something from Wands, Swords and Pentacles in there. No Cups because that is what she craves.

  • Because Saubey showed me a shark-dragon whom is now called Gooberfish for a group they are joining. GOBLIN SHARKS. I just wanted to see if I could do something for the muscles and jaws. Based on Mako, Cookie-Cutter and Goblin Shark jaws. Various cobra and viper-species were referenced for the neck movement. It’s just a silly thing and purely for my and Saubeys’ enjoyment.

    Blues are mostly surface-muscles and reds are mostly deep-muscles.
