What I dream about...

Posted by BULiK > ∑(MyParts) , Nov 20 2012 · 141 views

Well, I fell asleep In school today, and I had some strange dreams. About half were related to BZP, half of the remaining were related to bionicle, and the rest are about thermonuclear warfare.

Anyways, tomorrow I'll go back to see my grandparents, and hopefully I'll get something done.

EDIT: Well, the guy who has been creating the models I use for my non-bionicle related stuff just churned out some more epic stuff. I can't wait until January, when I'll get a resupply of paper to make this epic new stuff.

I found an epic new screensaver.

Totally better than my laggy Toa Mahri one I used previously.

So, This weekend I've unfortunately only had today to work, due to yesterday and friday afternoon, my Grandparents went to a conference or something. But, I've got a bit done.

Viper MK II: I Finished Glueing the Wing and attached it, so it's complete!



Helmet: So my grandfather managed to have the time this week to Do some Paper mache. He's done the bottom half, and it feels a bunch stronger now. Hopefully he can get the rest done this week. The irregularities caused by the paper mache process actually add to the battle-tested look by making bumps and dents in it, which is awesome. While I was here I Did all the paper Mache on one shoulder plate, so when I get back next weekend I'll use it to experiment with the clay-like paper mache's detail method.

I didn't have time to add more paint to the Companion cube, but I'll do that next weekend. For now, I'll just be putting all my efforts into completing the armor I have built until I get more Cardstock in January. I'll have more time next weekend because I'll get a few days off this week of school for a holiday or something.


Hostess strike

I find the strike actually counterproductive. Those people on strike did realize if Hostess died, they would lose their jobs along with all the other Hostess employees, right? Not to mention make a bunch of desparate snackers pay %95 more for twinkles on eBay.

Well, I'm feeling slightly better, but am still sick. To make things worse, my grandparents are busy this weekend, so I'llhave to wait until tomorrow night to go to their house :c. When I do go there, I will focus on paper-macheing the shoulder pauldrons, so next weekend I can test the clayish paper-mache detail method i've been thining about. I also will paint the companion cube a bit more. But as I stated before, Unfortunately I'll be out of cardstock until january. But until then, I'll be focusing on finishing up this helmet completely, painting the pakari, and paper-macheing the other masks. I am also considering to paint the Gem-thingie black - like an essence stone.


Just saw the news. Bye-bye, Twinkies.


Guess what: I'm still feeling sick.

Posted by BULiK > ∑(MyParts) , Nov 14 2012 · 109 views

For some reason this accursed virus is still in me. Yesterday, we went to a doctor and she told us there is a virus in my left at. So we got some medication and now I'm still feeling suckish. Every time I cough, I feel like my head is exploding. My mouth is horribly dry. Swallowing tastes like acid reflux. And my nose is dripping uncontrollably. Well, I guess I'll go back to drinking my 2 liters of ginger ale.

This is another Brilliant documentary that I've seen recently that I think deserves a blog entry about. It's very interesting how many designers talk about their goals during their projects, examples of such, the successes of industry, and the failures of industry. It's very interesting to see the various innovations they come up with and the points they raise.


Sickness update

Posted by BULiK > ∑(MyParts) , Nov 13 2012 · 116 views

Well, it's worse today. My voice is rough and scratched, and all the previous symptoms are still there. :/

I'll see a doctor this afternoon to check if it's a virus or not. If I'm lucky and it isn't a virus, then I can take some antibiotics to help.


Feeling sick

Posted by BULiK > ∑(MyParts) , Nov 12 2012 · 163 views

My throat was sore this morning, my nose has been stuffed, I had pain in my mouth when I swallowed, and I coughed out some slimy blood-covered stuff a few minutes prior.

Not such of a good way to start the week.


Vote for which Pakari Color! (BIG Progress update)

Posted by BULiK > ∑(MyParts) , in Progress Updates Nov 11 2012 · 180 views

Okay, So here is the progress I've achieved this weekend:

For the Greek helmet: I glued a small strip of paper between the two sides of the cheek plates to keep them in the correct positions while my grandfather will paper mache the helmet (hopefully) this week. We've also hot glued two pieces of the same foam/cardboard hybrid I used to support the companion cube (Credit goes to him for that brilliant Idea) to the cheek plates. I'm touching up a bit of the lining on the bottom by re-glueing a few tabs that weren't entirely glued properly. I also printed out the two pieces of the back head twice again, which I assembled yesterday as makeshift shoulder plates. My grandfather said that sometime after it's fully paper mached we can buy some metallic bronze paint to paint the armor. Also, it seems less big now than I originally thought, so I'm glad about it's current size. I'm hoping sometime I can figure out how some other people are able to to Incredible detail like some people have put on this thing I found in a google search. (I wish I knew how people did that!)

Tie between cheeks.
Foam/cardboard slices.
Primed shoulder plates.

For the Companion Cube: Recently I've just been adding more layers of light grey paint to the corners and sides of the Companion Cube, So there hasn't been much progress for that overall.

For the Pakari: Last weekend Due to a commercial paper mache that is sorta like clay (And takes 50 times longer to dry) we have paper mached the pakari to my satisfaction. We have Primed over the paper mache and now I just need to paint it to finish the job. That's the problem. I'm not sure what color I should paint it, So I want to hear your opinion, for that might influence my overall decision. I'm split between painting it Light blue like Takua or Black like Onua (Although I'm leaning towards Takua). So it would be nice if you would comment your opinions on which color you like best.


Re-Primed backside.

For the Kualsi: We are adding the same /foam/cardboard thingie on the long pieces of the kualsi for stabiltity, and Repriming it.


Cardboard/Foam Slices placing.

Also, on a more unrelated note, I have beat my current save file in Hammerfight (Without any uses of the gold Bulla B-)) after a few weekends of toiling away for the glory and honor of doing so. I might retrace my steps and do the other story combinations for fun sometime.

Unfortunately due to budget constraints, I don't have enough cardstock to make anything else until I'm resupplied in january, so until then I'll focus on painting, paper macheing, and whatnot on the projects I already have finished. When I do get resupplied in January, My order of projects from then on will be: Portal gun, Steel sword, Ancient Nord torso armor, and then the Nightingale blade. By then I'll probably have found something else to do after that :P.

Also, In late January My grandfather has decided that he will buy either a new Macbook Pro or a Mac Air, so he will let me use his old mac in my room then :D.

Please comment your opinions and other thoughts.
