I have a lot to learn still, but I am quite happy with my first try.
This is three different stages of the process, and I think I might already have learned about myself that I'll probably prefer making maps using only a few different colours, or at least very vague ones.
It'll be interesting for me to see if I end up doing enough maps that I actually end up with any sort of personal style (apart from my already very apparent penchant for over-detailing, heh) but for now, I am super thankful for these techniques for drawing mountains.
Constructive criticism welcome and appreciated.
This map is emerging thanks to me also - finally! - jumping into the deep end of the rpg pool and actually running my first game after many years strictly on the player's side of the table.
It is a little intimidating, but I am having a ton of fun!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
(These are "organically" raised Danish pigs. A far cry from the "traditionally raised" pigs producer in your so-called pork factories, which, imho, should be banned completely for being absolute torture for the pigs. It is one thing to use animals for consumption. It is quite another doing it in such abhorrent ways as seen with the majority of pigs around here. Anyways. Sweet clip, advertising visits to organic pig farms around Denmark.)
På søndag kan du besøge en økologisk bondegård. Her kan du opleve det gode griseliv og bl.a. få svar på, hvorfor økologi er vejen frem. Find en gård på www.sofari.dk
I hope you get the chance! It sounds like a lot if fun!
Resultaterne varierer noget, men jeg er generelt rød som en frisky aberøv, og når jeg ikke er dét, så er jeg åbenbart skriggrøn.
Mest uenig er jeg med en konservativ svinebonde i nabolaget, og det har jeg det sådan rigtig storartet med, for ham har jeg mødt irl til et vælgermøde, og det havde nær kostet mig min allerede tyndslidte tro på det danske demokrati som et realistisk projekt.
Hvordan kører det for jer andre derude?
Jeg har jo allerede taget de dér tests, som jeg ellers mener er det eneste mildt underholdende ved en valgkamp, så nu går jeg i valgpit og dropper alt, hvad der hedder politik på sociale medier until further notice. Eller det er ihvertfald min overordnede hensigt.
Skal jo passe på blodtrykket i begge ender, så jeg kan tænke så rationelt som muligt, når dagen kommer.
Barometeret står i øvrigt stadig på Blank.
Der er jo ikke nogen der yder vold på dig. Du er blot flyttet og havnet i nogle uheldige regler.
Og hvis folketingsvalg osv så vigtigt, at en blank stemme er det samme som at lade hånt om andres død, så må det, at slet ikke at stemme, da være endnu værre.

The Casino Opera's prestigious location, plus Badia's savvy at running a successful entertainment establishment, led to the club becoming the preferred place for King Farouk, his nobles, and the wealthy elite to gather. Many of the entertainers who worked for Badia were either already household names before she hired them, or became stars because Badia's clubs showcased their talents: Ismail Yassin (comedian), Tahia Carioca (dancer and movie star), Samia Gamal (dancer and movie star), Farid al-Atrache (singer, composer, oud player, movie star), and many more.
Even today, Badia is remembered as the "Queen of Theaters", or "Starmaker". She is recognized as the founder of raqs sharqi as we know it today. (The term raqs sharqi was in use before Badia's era, but Badia added some innovations to the dance to fit her creative vision.) She claimed in a 1966 interview to have invented the "Eastern orchestra"; that is, an orchestra consisting of both European instruments (such as violin and accordion) and Middle Eastern instruments (oud, qanoun, etc.)
Badia owned and operated the Casino Opera for 10 years, finally selling it to Beba Ezz el-Din in 1950.
Is this thing on?
After twenty-something years of willfully dodging the Magic card craze, I finally wavered for a mere second, and Damn yousss, handwritten pre-release poster and geeky friend with sneak attack: Enable!
Lad os ikke tage den for givet! :)
Efter min mening er det den vigtigste "fejringsdag" på året, og vi har for engangs skyld en tendens til at glemme at fejre, når chancen byder sig, på trods af, at det ellers er noget, vi excellerer i. ;)
Skål til Danmark, og tillykke med at vi - trods alt, trods offentlighedslove og den store børnehave DK oftest er - stadig er et demokrati (der for længst har stagneret og stille og roligt er på vej retur i "antal stemmer/antal høveder"-sølet) og i forhold til så mange andre lande kloden rundt: Et venligt sted at være.
Lad os prøve at være ordentlige ved hinanden (også) idag, og ikke glemme vores grundlovssikrede rettigheder.
Mange af os, jeg selv inklusive, kunne godt trænge til et genopfriskningskursus. :)
Today, june 5th, is the Danish Constitution Day.
We are really good at taking our constitution for granted here.
Personally, I wish we had as grand celebratory traditions for celebrating our constitution being formed as the Norwegians do. They totally rock at this.
Oh, well. Be informed that I most definitely celebrate this day in my mind. :)
It was a chock to us all.
At first, I was worried that his depressions had gotten the best of him, and that would have been worse circumstances for him and his loved ones, so I felt weirdly relieved when I heard that it was something else.
I am really sick of losing good people around me, both irl and on G+
Hugs and hope to talk soon!
seem to have some sort of Chronic Body/Mind Synchronization Disorder.
What ever timezone my body finds itself in, I can always be dead certain that my mind is having a blast somewhere else.

Oriental dance styles and all but every fusion thereof.
I like to think that my love for the dance makes up for most of my shortcomings as a dancer...I am nothing special skill- or talentwise; that being said, I have been bellydancing for almost fiften years now and I am a drama queen and fusionista at heart, so I do believe that I can hold my own in most of the areas of belly dancing (or whatever you prefer to call it) and perform professionally on a regular basis.
Drawing and painting and scratching and sculpting and all. That. Jaaaaazz...
Complete amateur; struggling to finish e-ve-ry-thing.
After a ten year break from drawing and some serious changes when it comes to my attitude towards my creative endeavours, I've taken it up again, mostly to my own delight.
Tropical fish keeper since 1997.
I love all kinds of animals but tropical freshwater fish is the only one I can keep and care for responsibly with the life that I'm leading.
Atm. I am down to two water tanks (1x128L and 1x325L) which makes me kind of proud of my own self-dicipline!
Reading, retorics, history, languages, ethology, human behavior and much, much more.
Learning new things in general; trying to keep my mind agile.
Mac and iPhone user, mostly by coincidence.
Not a fangirl; I judge and abhor all operating systems equally.
