#WhatLiesAground  

After 2½ years of redo attempts from myself, and several recent requests from other furry contacts on G+...

Proudly introducing Samson Dixwell, boy raccoon wonder, Procyon lotor minor — all over again. With a brand-new face, better ears, and redesigned mask...but the same old shirt from last time. Previewed during the tail end of +Katherine Cook's hangout last night; now out in public for the first time. From the forthcoming children's novel Unspooled, and the two prequels currently in development at this writing.

Created between February 28 and March 8 on SketchBook X, across several sessions. HSB values: 0/0/25 (mask), 0/0/64 (upper mask), 0/0/85 (outer ears/rest of face), 0/0/75 (neck), 206/80/70 (outer pupils), 339/83/91 (inner ears), 0/0/0 (inner pupils/eyelashes/nose), 27/74/57 (shirt), 27/74/52 (collar).

Don't worry, folks. While not up for adoption, feel free to use him in any way you wish. (Permission for image-board upload is granted, as well.) Tutorial coming up in a matter of days; future artists, illustrators, and animators, I'm giving you something to learn from!

Enjoy what I've made, everyone...and I'll see you soon on Tsū!

(Original content in the Unspooled project—including the characters, various drafts/working notes, and this self-made piece of concept art—is available to the public domain worldwide under CC0 [+Creative Commons] and Kopimi [Piratbyrån].)

Portrait Photography
Most people might think its an uneventful type of photography which in my opinion makes it much more challenging and exciting. It is very hard to master this craft, to bring out the emotions out of the persons' skin  and reveal the mysteries and secrets in their faces but once mastered, the photo becomes immortal.

What excites you about portrait photography? Share your thoughts with us

Turning our attention to another postcard—and another waiting list candidate. See you next week!

Rastoke village, Croatia
Rastoke, Hrvatska



How many waterfalls you can count here?
For sure you didn't know this kind of place even exists, but it's real! :)
This is Rastoke village in my country, Croatia.
Photo taken in springtime when there is plenty of water and waterfalls are powerful.
Rastoke [rastoke] is the historic center of the Croatian municipality of Slunj. This old part of Slunj is known for its well-preserved mills and the picturesque little waterfalls along the Slunjčica river, which flows into the river Korana at this place. The Korana river originates at Plitvice Lakes National Park.
More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rastoke
Happy Friday! Enjoy the weekend! 

Evo malo da odagnamo ove kišne dane, kad već curi na sve strane: Rastoke!
Kada se zadnji puta bili ovdje, ha!?
Uživajte!

While the rest of you were waiting, I was setting up the coastline for my new version of the gift map—and that alone took me many tries. Now to get back to this feed; three more posts tonight, this one included.

Sorry, folks. Had to sleep this afternoon; as such, the rest of the day has been effectively called off. I'll see you in a few hours, with that map, the chessboard, and everything else in between. Take care, see you soon...and toodles!

Look through these suggestions, fellow scribes, and tell me which one you'd recommend further.
 
Publishers are all writers and some of these tools are awesome!
i use OTranscribe to create text documents from my videos I do without a script (oops!).
Grammerly will help me grammer.
I trillo for Trello and i am in love with Audacity.   #freetools

And that shall do for this nychthemeron. Almost forgot above move #26 on the chessboard, which I'll get to before sunrise. In the meantime, I'll return right before two with a few more posts, after some more work on the gift map. Take care, see you real soon...and toodles!

Introduction
"It is not about what is good or what might be popular, it is about what I feel like sharing. It's simple that way."

Author, publisher, digital rights advocate, Web "nomad", and pop-culture geek (for hire) residing in Waterbury, CT; originally from the Commonwealth of Dominica. "Winner" of 2012's National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) with a project originally titled Marigot Magic, which now bears the name of Unspooled.

Responsible (through his Constitution Books imprint) for an Amazon-exclusive re-issue of Gadsby: Champion of Youth, a 1939 lipogram by Ernest Vincent Wright. Wrote an accompanying behind-the-scenes essay, Skipping Fifth, especially for this edition. (A revised version was published in February 2013.)
 
Currently:
- setting up a QGIS map of Rogatia, the fictional Atlantic island country featured in the Sevton Saga (which itself is still in development);
- setting up the Dixwell Dossier, a Referata site dedicated to the Marigot Magic project.

Also on Bitcoin (albeit very infrequently), thanks to Fred Conez/(e)FREEZECONE on Empire Avenue. ID: 1CkSXjzcPQ559AtN9dE9GQwNgsuULeLihn.
