This may be useful for all the budding cosplayers I know are out there.

My Hero!

Remember when I said +Bo Fisher was going to be The Green Lantern (the newest, a la Earth 2)? Then we decided there wasn't time to accomplish that task before he headed off to C2E2 this weekend. That was six weeks ago, when we didn't have time. Two days ago, somebody decided he absolutely had to have a costume (probably because his buddy's costume is awesome, so I can't blame him.)

This is Bo's first cosplay, my first attempt at anything superhero, and it was accomplished in 36 hours, including some sleep. Other than the spandex suit, which still had to be heavily modified, it's all built from scratch. I have to say, I think it came out pretty well. Most importantly, he loves it, if you can't tell by the look on his face. 

I learned a few very important things, which I will share below for those interested:

1) Comic Artists - Please get your shit together when it comes to consistency in portraying your characters' costumes, dimensions, etc... Okay, fine, I know you're not actually doing this for us, but seriously. Can we bring the medium back to something slightly more reasonable?

2) Craft Foam - You are the bomb. After being thrown into your use trial-by-fire style to make armor, you please me. I have learned your features and limitations, and I will use you again soon.

3) Automotive Paint Is super awesome for metallic colors with rich pigment, but requires sunlight to look its best, and bright light to look good - Otherwise, it looks very dark.

4) The Artist Formerly Known as Future, aka Pledge Tile Finish -- I have no idea how you work on floors, but you are amazing at shining up craft foam armor. Your reputation is not overstated.

5) Mod Podge - I'm not sure you're anything more than watered down PVA, but without you, none of this would have been possible. You are to craft foam what gesso is to canvas. (Or are you gesso? Or are gesso and PVA all the same? Mankind may never know...)

Some belated bunny shenanigans for y'all.
 
Pte Edward Hare (Easter Bunny Army)
from the down-the-rabbit-hole dept.

With all this double long weekend business in Australia, I realised I never actually posted the Edward Hare drawing here - just a link to the video... AND on the wrong channel :/ So I have a new YouTube channel for scribblegraph where I'll be uploading stuff & things from now on... I'd really love to see you all there! ♥ HUGE shout to my Google Plus High Density BING machine people... you know who you are:)

And if you follow me on twitter, you may have noticed someone has gone and done something a little bit bloody amazing and had a scribblegraph scribble tattooed on themselves... true story! I can't wait for you to see it:)

Hark! A novel to check out!
 
It has begun!

The Kindle Countdown Deal for The Meek is live and going strong! For the next 48 hours, it's on sale for only .99 cents! 

The last day of our dominion over the earth began as any other. Across the globe, people went about their daily business. They felt secure in the knowledge that they would go to bed in the same world they woke up in. Then, in an instant, everything changed. 

Every human being on the planet suddenly found themselves in a giant and seemingly alien environment. However, it wasn't the world that had grown; it was they who had shrunk. In this new reality, pets had become predators, homes had become prisons, and even the simple task of getting a drink of water had become a monumental undertaking. 

Young Devin found himself alone and confused. Not knowing how, why, or even if he was the only one affected, he struggles to survive the challenges of being 1/16th his normal size. Despite the obstacles, he sets off to find his girlfriend, Dakotah, and ends up on an adventure that will determine the fate of all mankind.

Here's what other readers are saying:

An interesting premise executed extremely well!

A cross between a survivalist story and a tale of teenage love, "The Meek" not only keeps you reading, but makes you think.

This is without a doubt one of the best indie novels I've ever laid eyes on.

And then there's the one person I've found who didn't enjoy it who said:

The Meek is an unnatural synthetic book alternative comprised of childlike characterization and entertainment value and neo-gritty gore-free violent realism which gets within the range of a very large taxpayer-funded telescope of artistic.

It's 230 pages, 94,000 words, and no DRM. Quite the value even at full price.

I'm Brad Poynter, and I thank you for your support.

*note: The cover shown will soon replace the current one, making the one I created obsolete and perhaps even collectible at some point in a utopic Bradcentric future.

Straight up #MapPorn with a touch of #DicePorn.
 
New dungeon map dice bags now available!  For anyone who really loves dungeoncrawls, maps, or gaming in general.  The fabrics for both of these were designed by +Billiam Babble .  

I imagine these would be perfect for Torchbearer, Dungeon Crawl Classics, D&D, Hackmaster...

Maps are beautiful things, but not everyone's cup of tea.
