LEGO Carnage's SHIELD Sky Attack set (76036)

This set was a straight up blast to build! There are so many cool points about the ship, from the mobility of the wings/thrusters (and the great printed tiles of fans) to the actual shooting guns, I can see this one definitely being fun for all kinds of age groups. I really dig the new gun style as well which seems to have come out of the Chima sets.

The three minifigures are of course really cool, though the major one for me is Miles. For multiple reasons I seriously love his character, so having a LEGO minifig of him on my desk just makes me happy!

I was never a Carnage fan, though the figure itself is gorgeous with the print job and neck piece/tentacle setup (exact same as the one for the Venom minifig). My only peeve with him is the slight reddish tinge to his eye pieces, which is a problem with all of the Spider-Man minifigs due to the red coloration of the head. Whatever white they use is just not bright/deep enough to cover it properly.

One cool thing I noticed about the instruction booklet was that there's an action pose of Spider-Man as a watermark. I'll have to check my other Marvel books to see if that was the case in other sets.

So now I really need to finish my lightbox so I can take some cool scene pics of Miles meeting some of my other minfigs!

Concept alone is hilarious, but the art is fun to look at as well!
 
For a while now I've been working with my wife Leah and Penny Arcade's Mike Krahulik on POOPING IS LOGICAL!, a potty-training book for young children and their parents based on the tenets of Vulcan philosophy. We're trying to get the +Star Trek people to take this seriously. Any help in spreading the word and generating some buzz would be greatly appreciated! ‪#‎POOPINGISLOGICAL‬

I was originally going to wait until next week/pay period to get this, but due to falling asleep while coding at my desk I decided to go for a walk. Obviously my feet dragged me to the LEGO store. Once I saw the cute little box, I couldn't say no!

As for the Mixels, apparently series 4 is on sale 1/2 price ($2.48). However, a little birdie at the store told me they may be dropping to $1 each this Friday (July 31st). So if you can be more patient than me and have a store nearby, it might be worth a stop-by.

If you find out which series 4 you're interested in, +Andy Goldman​​, call your store and see if they'll hold them aside for you. Of course depending on if you'll be heading in that direction in the near future.

Some sketches while sitting on a bench by the Houston Water Wall. Mostly just capturing shapes and poses. Now if I just had the ability to freeze time. ;)

Yeah, I usual try not to stare while sketching people, though it definitely makes it harder. I have a photographer friend who got into a bit with the law about taking pictures of people, so I just sketch as fast as I can.

It's been a while since I've done #fanartfriday, so in honor of +miller ramos​​, here's his character Cub Scout. A week late of course, but that's just how I roll.🍣

You like toys? Well, if you follow me, probably. And I'm guessing art, too...then why not gain yourself a cool piece of artwork and help the artist purchase Devastator. Yes, that one.
 
Hey folks! I'm sure a few of you have seen that amazing two foot tall Devastator: Combiner Wars Transformer set.

http://toyland.gizmodo.com/the-gigantic-new-devastator-towers-over-all-other-trans-1685928122

Yeah, I'm kind of drooling over it. Buuuuut ... I can't justify buying it ... actually my wife can't (even though it would look awesome in my office and would be great, um, art reference). But if I can raise the extra cash doing awesome artsy things, I'll be able to have it grace my shelves. For reference reasons of course.

So if you're interested in a custom art card, 6x9 piece or my books, I've broken down the prices below and check out the examples attached! All prices include shipping within the continental United States. Outside of that, we'll work something out. Drop me a message or email me :D I'll be running these deals all week.

2.5 x 3.5 Art Card - ink and marker
headshot of one character of your choice
1 = $7
2 = $12
3 = $15

6 x 9 Bristol - ink and marker
Body shot of one character of your choice
1 = $25
2 = $40
3 = $55

My Books!
Dax vol 1: Out of the Airlock = $25 (120+ page color graphic novel)
Nightmaiden 1-3 = $15 (3 issues 20-24 pages each)
Dax and Nightmaiden 1-3 = $35

#21daysofart #day21

Here I am, 21 days after starting this experiment to see if I could keep my creative momentum going. I faltered a few times (shy 4 sketches, but who's counting?), yet I kept going, and even got some cool new ideas and learned a few new techniques.
I just want to say thank you to all of you who have been supportive of me, but most especially +Scott Robertson​, +miller ramos​, and +Dana Tri​. It's awesome to be surrounded by such talented artists, so thank you for sharing both your creations and your kind words!

As for the sketch: I've been wanting to take a stab at the vampires from The Strain as they're particularly gruesome and interesting physically. Hopefully I don't give anyone nightmares (beside myself).

So if any of you having been watching FX's The Strain and are enjoying it, the first episode of season 2 is free to own via Google Play. Now I'm debating about buying the rest of the season, or waiting for Hulu+ to get it...eventually.

You move swiftly down the stone ladder built into the wall of the well, sweat on your hands causing you to grip tighter against the damp stones. The rustling from above gets louder and louder, until a shadow blots out part of the night sky. You look up to see glaring red eyes staring at you.

What do you do?

First gaming session with my seven year old. Apparently daddy is a bit too creepy, so I'll be toning it down for the next one. I'm just happy there'll be a next one!

Sort of reminds me of when I was telling my daughter about the dragon in the forest and the red marks on the trees were the burn marks... She didn't appreciate my story telling! :D

This store is one of my family's favorite places to visit in Houston! The staff are always friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The store, while allowing children to play in certain sections with piles of bricks, is never messy. There was one instance where I had purchased a discounted Ninjago set but when we got home found there were pieces missing. I explained the issue with the store manager, Merlin, and he not only apologized for the issue but he straight up replaced the set no problem. While you may be able to find sets cheaper due to clearance or discounts in other stores like Target or Walmart (not Toys R Us as they tend to charge $5-20 more and then offer "discounts"), the experience of checking out the store and finding cool and interesting sets, or even filling a bucket full of different bricks via their Wall of Bricks is well worth the visit if you're in the Houston area. They also do monthly events like free mini builds, Club Member meetings based on themes for children to build to and discuss in front of their peers, and other random little events. If you're in the Galleria, especially with children who hate shopping, promise them a visit to the store after you get your errands done. They'll love it, and you might even find something that your own inner kid is just begging to have. :)
