BrainSpew the 62nd by Altalamatox BrainSpew the 62nd by Altalamatox
My, been a while since weíve seen one of these. To be honest Iíve done relatively little drawing the last couple months. This I intend to change. This I intend to change SO HARD.

Cornelius and Penny are as shocked as anybody they came from the same parents. Secretly they both think the other is actually pretty awesome. :3

Latest whack at Tomís robotics, I like this, think we shall keep him this way. Also, tentative exploration into the back basement chamber place where the cyborg keeps his biological bits. I think he may want us to leave.

We havenít seen human Brogan in a while either so thatíd be him, the dork with soot all over his face. But you probably guessed that just from Marie.

Craptastic lubii doodles from four years ago! Whenever I get around to revamping the species, which I have not touched, actually, since these doodles, the biggest change may be that the general shape of the animal the lubii partially congeals into to attack will be identifiable as the hostís former body. ErÖ youíll see what I mean when I draw a few.

HTTYD. Tried to doodle from it, only got so far. Perhaps Iíll pick this up again later. Maybe. To be honest the only designs I really flipped for in the movie were Toothless and the Red Death, just canít get into the other dragons. Likewise Gobber and Stoic are the Vikings that caught my eye, and HiccupÖ? Hiccup is just impossible for me to draw, I have decided.

And do I like to make fun of myself yes I do. Before you ask thatís not Tom, Cornelius, and Ben as foxes, thatís my derpy fox mascot thing Marin (can we call them fursonas anymore? that term completely ruined by now?) shamelessly playing dress-up with their wardrobes. Mwaha, if I could steal one of my charactersí clothes itíd be Corneliusí cuz they are silky and super comfortable and I friggen adore swishy capes. Swish, swish, swish. <3

Benís sword. That might not be the final design but itís close. Yeah he has a glowy enchanted sword what kind of fantasy knight do you take him for? Itís a story for another time but he acquired the thing as payment from a sorcerer for doing a task for him (oh so vague), said sorcerer offered to cast a spell over it of Benís choosing. Being the pragmatic guy he is (and also because of his bad leg), in Benís hands his sword has the ability to twist and melt itself into an apparently wooden, gnarled cane and also a taller walking stick. VíRY PRACTICAL.

Hey hey I talk too much. :la:

Thanks! Photoshop's the answer. I paint out most of my smudges and specks with it. And then it's just a matter of putting together the doodle jigsaw, which it usually resists.

First of all ~ Whut? Cornelious has siblings (slap me if I haven't been paying attention, but I swear Penny was his friend)? Let me clarify - Cornelious has siblings that wish to associate with him in such a manner? Like fist-bumping and smiling directly at him kind of association?! :noes: I mean, not that I wouldn't like him, he's very like-able to me, but other people? That really know all of him? Not enough in that group range to fit in a small english made car, I'd think . . .

Hurr durr, love the fierce unicorn - I don't think they appreciate all the fluff and sparkles that get laid on them in lore - maybe this is why he's a big grumpy pants. I understand, I'd be that way too :shrug:

mmmm, black widows, interesting to come by the ones that have variations on their markings - sure I kill them right after, but still interesting to observe no one wants these things in their house :C - we get a noticeable amount around, but yet to have any of the buggers get in :noes:
(ohohohoh, lookit what I implanted in yer brainz XP) *points at tom brain* heeheeladeedah :fuzzydemon: we weel neivar leeeeeaf! *looks at everyone running off* . . . I weeeel neivarh leeeeeef!!

Ahhhh, I see the seeds of mandatory voluntold art homework being sowed out thar, indeed. Yew is not alone, dear one, I have given meself that kick in the face too - argghhh!

Oh, if only we could all have such practical things like that sword :lol:

Alright, but just a tiny slap. Oh yes, there’d be no way they’d be buddies if they weren’t brother and sister, and they’re only marginally so as it is. Alright, alright- I suppose it’s not so much that they dislike each other as they just share precious few common interests on top of being so far apart in age. But if you thought they were just very odd friends then you’re not alone, lots of people around the Network don’t even know Cornelius has siblings let alone that the weird kid who shows up around his office now and then is his sister. And to be honest, Penny adores goofing off around him in public, and pummeling his back, and messing up his hair, and playing with his robes, because she doesn’t have to give a damn about how she looks in public but Senator-Ambassador big brother does and she thinks it's funneh. The truly amazing thing is that he takes it, with a patience I didn’t even know the man possessed. Because, not to sound stupid and dramatic, but really if she hadn’t selflessly moved back home and helped him through the months after his infection he very probably would’ve killed himself, so I imagine he feels indebted. Certainly enough to put up with her silliness. In fact I know a very tiny suppressed bit of him enjoys it.

I keep meaning to draw some unicorns. Try to make the coolest, lamest, freakiest, disgusting adorable, idealized, demonized, and so on variants I can, but for better or worse unicorns are still out of my reach because, durr, I still can’t draw horses to save mah life.

Waitaminute, Benjamin has a bad leg?

Oh hai! Hey, I promise I'm not ignoring your email. Good gods, I'll never know why anyone ever tries talking to me online I'm always so behind on my messages. So close!

I will never get over this pair of ours, Alysha, it just makes me grin. What are we up to now? Age, height, demeanor, swordsmen, a bit of a limp... what am I missing? And it's his right, actually, so we're saved there. We'll be okay as long as Mort doesn't take up book lending and Ben doesn't join the choir invisible, methinks. *casts an eye at Ben* If I ever catch you in a green suit, mister, you're going to get it.

Don't forget constantly playing counselor to the more basket-case'd of their respective worlds. >_< Mortimer's friends jokingly call his office "The Confessional" for a reason.

Though Mort's got his share of problems. You should hear the sob story behind that limp of his, which was rather notably unpleasant for all involved. (He tells everyone it was an accident. HE LIES.)

Altalamatox Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011
This is true; Mort's got the Enforcers to wrangle, Ben's got the Librarians. The less stable of which include a hormonally-dazed teenage centaur, an orphaned nymph girl, a stage magician and cowboy who bicker to the point of bloodshed, our friend the reformed evil warlord, and dear Charles. Oh, who, I should mention, because you mentioned it, owes his ghostliness to the library's own paranormal aura which Ben is as saturated with as any of the books, and so he can actually interact with Charles as if he were solid. I would imagine other spirits would work as well, and I can just see big ol' Mort giving the grouchy old ghost a surprise bear hug. :3

Ooooh, I know you’ve told me about his limp before… it was a talisman injury but I’m not recalling the scenario... drat, or maybe you didn't and I'm making things up in my head. I’d love to hear what story he tells people, though!

Mortimer's not really a huggy type, and I suspect this is a good thing, judging by the grip of the guy's handshake. (Crispin here says there was this one time when Mort had to restrain him, and nearly broke ribs in the process. I may have to press for details, since this sounds like an interesting story.)

And neither Mort nor I have mentioned the explicit details of the incident that messed up his ankle, since it is a very sore subject. But what he will allow me to mention (in public view, anyway) is that it was during the 1940s, it involved someone very close to him, and the person who hurt him regretted it greatly and continues to do so to this day. Though I can't say the same for the person who caused this unfortunate occurrence to-- *Mortimer clears his throat and raises an eyebrow at me*

*coughs* Right. Shutting up.

We couldn't remember at the time if black widows have the hourglass on the back or the underside (or both?) so I guess the little thing is checking for us.

Oh, lookit them skinny liddle arms-- far from cleaving skulls that stupid fox's about to fall over backwards is what she's gonna do. My little sister told me to draw a fox in a top hat and that's what stemmed all that nonsense, glad it got a giggle out of you!

I'd spend a whole day looking at those details. :)

Hey! That would be an interesting experiment: I think I should go through some wardrobes too! A character of mine wears the most comfortable and useful suit I've designed so far; it's a mix of Medieval European-Arabic capes, with long (open) waistcoat, large-sleeved shirt and plus fours. :P
