Yeah....it's been pretty busy the last month. Kinda forgot about April.

I'm not currently working on any drawing projects at the moment. All my free time is currently being funneled into finishing off my Monster Hunter cosplay to be ready in two weeks time.

I do have some ideas for a new project based on wayang- Indonesian shaddow puppets- but that won't commence until after the cosplay.

There might be a couple more silly comics here and there. I've got ideas for at least two Monster Hunter ones.

Monster Hunter 2 by Typthis
Monster Hunter 2
Another Monster Hunter based comic.

In a game where you spend you time hunting ever larger and more ferocious beasts you'd expect it to be fairly violent. Yet for some reason it's the herbivore death animations that are the most horrific. You watch them shudder and spasm for surprising long before you can finally carve them up.

Which brings up the issue of the Kelbi. It is one of three monsters that you can't kill in the game the others being the Felyne varriants. Instead you just KO them. Yet you can still carve off their pelts or hunks of raw meat and the Kelbi just stands up, shake itself off and prances away. If you think about it you're sending off a creature that's been mortally wounded to die a slow death. Heck, you're carving these bits off whilst the animal is still alive.

Background photo is mine from somewhere in the Blue Mountains.

Monster Hunter 1 by Typthis
Monster Hunter 1
My bug got the final hit on a Dah'ren Mohran I was hunting in Monster Hunter. It was a bit of a surprise. You get ready for another swing at the monster and then bam! "Quest Complete" and you're sitting there thinking 'but I didn't even hit it....?'.

In the same quest I managed to glitch the quest slightly as well. For those unfamiliar with the Mohran fights in Monster Hunter the fight is split into two stages where you automatically get transported into the final confrontation when enough damage has been dealt or time elapsed. However, if you are on the load screen when this happens you don't get automatically transported nor does the message pop up. This happened to me so I was left standing on the boat with the Mohran listed as being in a different area. It was a bit of a 'lol waht' moment.

Having a bored boyfriend acting like a 5 year old doesn't help with drawing....

I also swear I have killed a Qurepeco with a paint ball once.

Medusa by Typthis
Medusa
A different take on Medusa. Most of the art that depicts the gorgon makes her out as a feme fatal or ugly hag.

One version of Medusa's orgin in Ovid's Metamorphoses has her as a beautiful maiden. Her hand in marriage was sought by many men yet she refused them. One day Poseidon decided to rape her in Minerva's temple. Now Minerva is a virgin goddess so she didn't take kindly to that at all. Instead of telling off Poseidon she transforms Medusa into the snake haired she-monster that we are familiar with. Poor Medusa cops bad luck twice.

It is Medusa's status as a victim that I wanted to convey a bit more. I also wanted to show something a bit more 'human' than the standard 'snakes n boobs' of most Medusae. The events of the stories that the tale of Medusa is nestled in occur around Egypt in the Metamorphoses. I thought that doing something inspired by African tribal braiding and bead working would go really well with Medusa' snakes. I think it worked out pretty good.

Well not much has changed since the last update. Nothing new has been completed art wise.

The holidays were much needed. As a bonus I got to reclaim a bunch of my old stuff that was at my parent place. I now have a working PS1 and PS2 again. I even have some of my game files intact! Got my old Pokemon cards again and various books. In the end I would up being over weight for the plane. Thankfully there was a boyfriend with a less heavy suitcase traveling with me. Said boyfriend thinks my mum is crazy after spending a fortnight with them. I won't argue with that.

:bulletpurple: Medusa picture is coming along nicely, not quite in the home strait yet though.

:bulletpurple: Really want to start that bloodly monster hunter picture. I keep adding things to the mental check list of stuff to include and I can see it spinning out into a big project. Commencement is on hold until Medusa is done.

:bulletpurple: Thinking of doing a Monster Hunter cosplay....you can guess what I've been playing a bit lately.
