D&D characters - my sister's rogues and their predilection for murder.

Rough pencils, marker clean-up and then more colouring pencils - learning which ones draw over each other is tricky - some colours add and blend nicely and others makes things green.

Nuts to watercolour pencils. Also: "Why I am still playing Fallout 4"

Fallout 4 continues to be a good time.  Adopting a signature look for my character and just fighting through the significant loss of equipment bonuses (for silly things like stats and defense) is key to my enjoyment.

Got the "megaton" hairstyle and I need to see it constantly so no helmets.  Hence the poker-visor and goggles. Wearing Children of Atom rags and garbage power armour and toting that crazy, wire-wrapped, triple-bayoneted mini-gun.  I am the furthest thing from optimized but damn it is consistently fun.

ALSO! I borrowed a friend's colouring pencils and it was super fun and works well with the markers. This MAY be my new jam.  Who knows.

Watercolour pencils.

Fun but finicky - I think I'll use these for less detailed, but still colourful work.

Painting practice!

I remember reading that it was important to know when to stop working on a painting - that nothing is ever truly finished, just abandoned.  Fabulous frog #1, I commit your incarnation to the internet.  Pixels to pixels, bits to bits.  TIME FOR ANOTHER FROG!

Sneak peak at the next series.

Kate Beaton once suggested on Twitter that googling "full regalia" was wonderful.  Frogs, and toads, deserve to be as fully regaled as possible, I think.

Some kind of round frog dressed in peer's robes and the regalia of the Order of the Garter.
