When I started to help my Dad on the house today, I found this perfectly intact praying mantis out next to the wall studs. All complete, killed by the cold. We had frost last night and below freezing temperatures, so I immediately concluded it was the culprit.
This was a big mantis; for comparison to size, the wood it’s on is 4 inches across. When I had to ditch it, it did have a bit of weight to it.
Week 6’s montage is up! At this point I’m playing Mercy 75% of the time, not quite a Mercy main but getting there.
Also due to a recent conversation with my brother (Robuster), he’s allowing me to post his POTG’s on my channel as well. So you’ll see a few in this video, but I’ll upload his separately from now on.
Apologies if the blending isn’t too smooth, I’m not at my regular facilities this November.
This was something that was a long time coming. According to my Things app, I’ve had the idea of “putting Sheena from Tales of Symphonia on a bike” since the beginning of 2010. Glad to finally have it see the light of day.
I had real fun with this one in particular, especially with the background and setting up this nighttime “urban” ambience. City was a little tricky but I finally tweaked it to give it that night glow I wanted.

First time recording a “whole match”, which ended in disaster because of that dumb DDoS attack that kept happening. Nevertheless, we won!
This is an important match for me because its the only time that I had two strangers that didn’t know each other linked up. Every time I play in a group its pretty much a group of 3, or if its 4, the 4th person is someone that someone else knows (basically 2 pairs of people playing in that regard).
Despite having a lot of free time after I got laid off from work, I barely touched or did anything art related. In fact, it was in the middle of the “house disaster” that I was getting quite fed up with what was going on. To help try to reconstruct my social and work life, I tried to start drawing again. Not colorist work, actual drawing.
I was way out of practice and I saw that I had not even attempted to try drawing figures since I had graduated or working. I realized I needed to start doing some sort of drawing again.
This was the first step towards that. I took my blog mascots and drew out a hair-brained idea I had with spoofing Zenyatta’s ultimate. It wasn’t perfect but it was at least something.
Week 5’s montage is up! My skill ramps up a bit and I start getting POTG’s as Mercy. It’s around this week I also start playing support a lot more. Videos started to take better quality with editing, too!
I don’t usually brag about these things, but I randomly got Mercy’s witch skin in a loot box while playing tonight. I had snapped the picture to send to my brother, and decided to share with you guys. This skin looks fantastic, don’t you agree?
Just updating you on life, what I’ve been into and how things are going. Thanks for the 400K views. 🙂
(I’ll have some big written blurb at one point, don’t worry).
