7 Years In The Making

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 21 2013 · 150 views
bzpower, chocolatefrogs, piraka and 2 more...
After seven years, the title is finally official! I am the Piraka Fusionist!
 
It's still built! It even came to BrickFair this year! I'll probably bring it to BrickCon because why not?*

It's nowhere near a decent MOC, especially after I've built other, better things, but this guy has to have a special place in my heart, and there isn't anything I'd change about it. (Well, that tail's tip is pretty ridiculous. Hey, I was 16.)
 
Just go look at one of my posts and look at my new, fancy title!

Favorite Comic Cover EVER

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 09 2013 · 170 views
comics, batman, superman and 2 more...
I have a handful of favorite comic book artists: Chris Bachalo, Stuart Immonen (those All-New X-Men covers, am I right?), Dave McKean, and recently Jae Lee in Batman/Superman (apologies to Jack Kirby, though I'll soon read some FF comics drawn by him), but none of them have drawn my #1 favorite cover ever.
 
See, now and then a comic might get published with a blank variant cover made from hard stock paper, the purpose being for commissions, presumably from a well-known comic artist visiting a convention (or your 2-year-old who likes Batman). I took a slightly less orthodox approach and handed my comic over to a friend.
 
Don't take this notion lightly. This was a paid commission (in various terms), but it was worth every penny. And, while everything comes with a price, I'm sure she'll be up for earning a bit of cash for commissions if you just drop her a PM.
 
Without further ado, this is the lovely Lady Kopaka's fantastic, wonderful, too-good-for-words-like-those-raptors drawing of Batman and Superman on Batman/Superman #1, N52, published in June.

I especially like how the capes flow with their length. And the backgrounds for each character. And the attention to detail, like Clark's t-shirt instead of his suit since that's what he has in this issue.
 
Now I just gotta figure out how to frame this!

(Seriously though, send her a PM and see if she has the time for commissions. She likes making money off of her talent.)

Well This is Awkward

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 07 2013 · 171 views

The BrickFair withdrawl really hit me hard this year, as I love you all (well, most of you, not you, and you're ok... you know who you are :P ) and as such strong bonds were formed and reformed saying goodbye until who-knows-when was really hard.
 
But what I especially realized as I left everyone after our final dinner was how much fun we are compared to my local friends and friends from college. Maybe because I see them more often it's not as tough, or maybe because I know them so much better it's no question I'll see them again soon; but really it's more about how much of an awesome time I have with BZP and how average hanging out is with my usual friends.
 
I guess we just party hard (BZParty?) at the big get togethers instead of keeping it average.
 
Can't let my local friends see this post thought. XD

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Aug 04 2013 · 250 views
lego, brickfair
Why you shouldn't attend BrickFair: Because you live "too far" away.
 
Why you should attend a convention near you: Because they are awesome.
 
tl:dr--Well maybe you shouldn't have tl:dr'ed my editorial.
