Heavy Metal Party Girl by Amoryl
Heavy Metal Party Girl
here we have Vaalah again, this time in more formal attire. I really like the concept that dwarf formal wear being largely formed of metal and leather. but I wanted it to be ornate and finely woven, not just fancy armor. a dwarf fancy dress will be sexy and slinky but still have that flavor of dwarfishness.

also, she's not much of a wine drinker.

so I was working on another character and couldn't get the pose right. at one point the character was shorter and stockier than I was aiming for, and I thought "she could almost work as a dwarf" and I suddenly got an imagine in my mind of this. and a whole bunch of ideas just burst forth.

Vaalah is a dwarf in a fantasy steampunk/western setting. she'll ultimately become the defacto leader of a D&D like campaign party of all women, each from a different race from around their world. Despite being the shortest of the party, she holds the role of the team heavy, wearing custom heavy armour and wielding various types of heavy weapons such as the mini-gun in the picture, and carrying an axe for close quarter melee combat. When not in combat, she takes the role of the party's mechanic/tinkerer. also not pictured, is her pet/companion Hrellki, a 150lb saber toothed mountain cat she adopted as a kitten. When traveling, she rides in a large armoured wooden merchant wagon pulled by 4 pony sized mountain rams.

Personal Quote: Because after everyone panics, there's always got to be someone to tip the wee out of the shoe
it's been over a year since I've done a Journal entry? kinda pathetic

well, to give a quick update; I've moved, not out of country or state or anything, but to some shiny new digs on the east bay. already I'm much MUCH happier about it. could even see myself living here for a few years by choice. it's stunning what a psychologically depressing effect the old place had pretty much the moment of move in. it also made me realize some things about how I treat the various apartments and living in general, and I'm working on making my apartment not merely a place I sleep and keep my stuff, but an actual home. which I historically have not done. Just little things, mind. Like actually hanging a picture or two on the walls, buying furniture and appliances that aren't completely disposable, and having an actual place for things instead of merely left in boxes or stacked/piled on the floor.

on the other hand, at the moment, I do not have a scanner, so nothing new will be forthcoming for a little while yet. I was never happy with the canon Pixma scanner I had, and when Mom's printer ate itself, it didn't take much thought to ship her mine. fortunately she's loving it in all the ways I did not, so it's found a good home. my next scanner will be a wide format 11x17 so I can finally scan my drawings in one single scan rather than 2 and then merging them in one. the big issue with the Pixma was that the corners weren't true 90degrees and getting the two scans to line up properly was pretty frustrating.

overall, things are going pretty well...and there's some plans on the horizon that when they come to fruition will vastly improve my general disposition, so yay.
