I'm a tool of the Japanese public education system. I occupy myself with picture taking, food making, and colorful combat squads.
I also read certain webcomics and, though not the biggest fan of the genre, enjoy an animated Japanese once in a while.
Looks like I’m off Tumblr for the rest of the night because I haven’t seen the new Doctor Who episode and assholes don’t know what spoiler tags are.
A (very) rough assembly of my wip Royal Deringer. I’ve got way too much finishing work to do on it before Phoenix Comicon but it’ll definitely be ready by July.
I’ve still got to:
- Prime, reinforce, and paint the hilt
- narrow the other side of the blade
- sand the edges of the blade flat (they’re too round now)
- cut notches into the handle
- plasti-dip the handle
- make the pommel
- “break” the blade
- paint EVERYTHING
Very rarely after watching an anime do I stop for a moment and say, out loud, to myself, “Oh my god. That was… really, really good.”
Every day I try to share a picture from my experiences in Japan. Sometimes they’re interesting, sometimes they’re not.
