Food for Thought

Yep, it's another 24 hour film from Sheep Deprived Productions. A long standing group of derpers who work on 24 hour films for about.... 3 years? 4? I guess 3. What if Sheep Deprived became studio who would work on only 24 hour films and hand you whatever they can think of at the end of the day? Fancy that. Might also be a horrible thing for a client though, but hey! It's kind of like one of those cheap mystery bags you find in toy stores.

So a little about the film... well it all speaks for itself. I did the beginning sequence, but it took a lot longer than I hoped it should. When you don't have enough sleep, it really messes with your sense of judgement. I had a difficult time knowing what works and what doesn't and what time it is and OH MY GAWD IT'S ALREADY 6PM HURRY HURRY. Also the starring chicken's name is Dan and the guy running on the train is Ross.

So really... which came first?

DIY stuff!

Well, now that film's done, I could do something else for a breather. I've always loved crafting things, and well, because I'm not that awesome at crafting, I tend to like buying kits to start. I like following instructions.

Zee first one I made is a rain doll. Woo needle felting! The story of how it went was... well. The kit didn't provide a felting needle. The instructions was also ridiculously vague. I had to look it up on Youtube. And then I realized I needed a felting needle. I thought I could do without one. I was very wrong. Spent 3 days stabbing a fluff ball with a pair of scissors.

So after buying a pack of felting needles, my mom requested me to make a Pikachu. Now, the kit only had three colors of wool. But luckily, while I bought the felting needles, I had the unfortunate impulse to buy more colored wool. The wool isn't the best in the world, so it came out hairy. Also that's a really odd request coming from my mom.

Unfortunately the pack of multicolored wool only had enough yellow to make a Pikachu of this size. It was slightly larger than a quail egg.

I also had a DIY kit to make a sewn bunny. I'm terrible at sewing. See that scarf? It's there for a reason.

Back to drawing! :'D
