Workin' for the weekend  
There was a new Lunargyros page up on Friday; read it here.

This weekend has been fun as I've got to spend it with friends! Went to Disneyland on Friday with [livejournal.com profile] betwixt_worlds, and we had fun even though it started raining pretty hard. XD That's probably the only time I've seen no line for Dole whip floats. Just did stuff with no real worries in mind and talked a lot. I actually went into the Innoventions area, which I haven't before, and ate at the Storyteller's Cafe in the hotel, which was delish. :9

And then yesterday [livejournal.com profile] corrielle joined us and we just hung out for the day, watching Disney movies and playing Final Fantasy XIII or Angry Birds. XD We wanted to try out a new restaurant around Malibu for lunch, but it was closed on Saturdays, WTF.

I've created an animatic version of the Bremen Town Musicians board (that I was actually happy with, yay), but I need to post that later. I'm really hoping for some good things to get kicking next week. *crosses fingers*

Drawing: Need to do more; mostly been doing editing stuff

Writing: Arpee...I have finally given in and joined a game with Eraqus. |D

You swim, jog, and appear in a boring movie  
There's two new Lunargyros pages that were posted yesterday, you can read 'em here.

In ficcish news, also posted a new chapter of the Destiny Islands fic, here. Comes with bonus FF cameos! XD

Aaaand then I just finished this late last night, but was too tired to post it until today. I did some FFXIII fanart:

VERY big images under the cut )

Drawing: Finished this, time for more work on Scratch stuff...have to get it all done by the 19th. @_@

Musing over shiny  
So I went to the doctor today, and while the wait was long, he basically said that the pain wasn't anything to worry about, just some kind of muscle strain/inflammation. I'm just supposed to take a crapton of advil every day and come back if it doesn't get better within a week. While I'm glad that it doesn't look to be anything serious, I don't like the idea of taking so much medicine every day. @_@ Oh well.

Aaaand as promised, here's my overall consensus on Final Fantasy XIII!

Some spoilers in my thoughts )

Buuuut aside from all those questions, I overall had lots of fun with the story. Maybe I'm just easygoing and not so picky with this sort of stuff, but I had fun playing, and as long as the game is fun to play I can overlook some weak points in a game's story. I suppose YMMV on that front. Regardless, if you've got a PS3, I'd say go pick it up! If nothing else, it's really beautiful to watch. :D

And hmm, I suppose I should do a bit of fanart for it, too...

Drawing: Storyboards all day

Writing: On to chapter five~

Conquered the shinies  
So! Yesterday I was gone all day 'cause I went to D-Land with [livejournal.com profile] corrielle and [livejournal.com profile] gaelic_bohemian! We had ourselves an awesome fun time, going back and forth between DCA and D-Land a couple of times. We did stuff like Thunder Mountain, the river rapids ride, Pirates, Haunted Mansion, Mulholland Madness, and suchforth. I also finally got to go look around inside the Grand Californian (I've never been back there before) and finally tried a pineapple float at the stand outside the Tiki Room that's always crowded. It was worth the wait, too.

OH, and they've reinstated Captain E.O.! (So [livejournal.com profile] yamikonumber7, if you want to go see it, we should before you graduate! They didn't change any of the original show, although they did change the theater. Now parts of the theater move in time with the music, which is both distracting and kinda cool. But man, I had forgotten how Eighties Captain E.O. was. There really isn't any better adjective for it than eighties. (Quite a few people in the audience were loling.) Man, I remember when all of that stuff was so cool. 8<

I also caved in and bought a little Pluto doll for myself! It is the most adorable thing ever! And not just because Pluto is my favorite.

Although man, I got home late last night and had a ton of pain in my side, followed by some really nasty nightmares. D: I feel better today, but how that is I'm not really sure, because I swear there were some moments where that pain in my side was working its way into my nightmares and kind of messing me up in terms of what was real and not. But today that pain's gone and I don't remember most of what the nightmares were, so I guess that's good.

I played taxi for neighbors today, but aside from that, it's FFXIII PLAYAGE. And here we have, I believe, the last commentary post for this game...

Will the real Ragnarok please stand up? )

And with that, I have officially finished FFXIII! I'll give some more overall/coherent thoughts when I've had some process time for it, but for now, we'll just post the commentary. More will come later~

Two things carried on  
Well, still in limbo, as usual. Let's focus on silly things instead!

Ended up finishing this rather quickly, so here is the main character from 'Scratch and the Tooth Troll.'

Scratch )

On a completely unrelated note, have yourself a little more FFXIII commentary! Getting pretty dang close to the end, I believe...

Have I mentioned how much I hate behemoths lately? Yes? Too bad. )

Drawing: LG, and then on to storyboarding stuff

Let sleeping dogs lie  
First off, here's two more watercolor sketches of Sunshine sleeping:

Snoooore )

Been working on a bunch of arts lately, as usual, but I'll have to post those later. Last night we went to Songfest, which I swear about half of my family was in! XD One little bro was dancing in it with his fraternity, another was friggin' stage manager, and my mom was participating in the faculty/staff/alumni group, too. And of course, Kia was in it with her group! I may be biased, but I liked Kia's and my brother's groups best, in that order. >> I enjoyed the theme this year and all of the groups did a great job. It'll be interesting to see who wins which prizes.

Before that we also ate at Malibu Seafood, which is always good, and chatted with friends from church that I haven't seen in awhile because I fail at going to church.

Aaaand since I've been playing bits here and there, here's continued FFXIII commentary! Up through chapter 10 and into some of 11...

I do not like behemoths )

Can't go without an angelic chorus or two  
Where we last left our heroes, we were back with Sazh and Vanille, who were chillin' with the adorable chocobos in Yet Another Resort Town. Until there are more army attacks...

Faces of Evil? )

OKAY since I've finished off...whatever the heck happened, now's a good place to stop for now. Probably one more posty tonight, and then I dunno about tomorrow, we'll see.

First off, a big happy happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] wyna_hiros and [livejournal.com profile] famira! HAVE A GREAT DAY!


And otherwise, construction continues, showers continue to be in short supply, and I am continuing on with our friends in Cocoon...

Gaming gaming day  
In completely non-FF news, my parents are having their entire bathroom redone...tile, toilet, sinks, cabinets, shower, WALLS, the works. This means weeks of heavy machinery in the house, and also weeks of everyone else in the house using my shower. B|

I can handle that okay, but right now they're using some kind of grout machine or idek and it is making the most CONSTANT AGGRAVATING GRINDING SOUND, it's like someone running a generator for outdoor night games lighting RIGHT UNDER MY FEET. NGGGGGGH.

Aaaand it looks like I won't be able to shower EITHER tomorrow because some fresh caulking had to be put down in my bathroom too, and that takes at least a day to dry. @_@

With that constant noise and smell in the background, let's get back to our l'Cie friends...

There's a lot of party-splitting going on here )

I need new FF icons  
I am pretty much waiting for go-aheads on things for the rest of the week, so what better way to wait than to charge through as much FFXIII as possible? 8D

In which I do not like metal scorpion mechas )

OKAY must take a break to go take care of the doggie, so I'll post this now and then continue when I return...

You all knew this was coming...  
Today involved much more success on the things that were Not Accomplished yesterday...working wireless, and best of all, snagged a copy of FFXIII OHHH YEAH! This is the first time I've ever actually gotten an FF game when it came out (everything else I got to months or years later...I didn't grow up playing games, you see) so it should be fun!

And since I've gotten most everything done that I need to (for now) this means I'm giving into temptation and starting on the game!

Aaaand of course, this means MORE PLAYTHROUGH COMMENTARY XD (I will get back to Uncharted 2 when I...get back to it!)

So here we go!~

I'LL NEVER LET GO, SNOW )

ANYWAYS I guess I'm getting close to the end of this chapter so I'll stop commentary for now. BUT MORE IS TO COME IN THE FUTURE as I want to play as much as possible before I start on big projects that're upcoming XD
