I had a dream that I… uh… became Garfield But the weird thing about it was that I had only become Garfield in the future, due to some decision I had made in the past. It was some kind of karmic punishment or something.
I wasted zero time figuring out how to get back to the past and break the Garfield curse, which was apparently accomplished by retreating to the cat bed in the far room and sitting in it. …At least, that’s what I really hoped would work. After a few attempts I figured out how to shrink to a small size along with the bed.
So I had a dream that… started out really ordinary, but then after a certain point got progressively weirder and weirder.
First my brother’s parrot was crawling around the walls of its cage trying to get out in order to threaten to bite me, and kept finding doors to get out, after which I’d shoo it back in. Instead of just one like in reality, there were like three doors on the cage; it was built a lot more like the cage we used to keep parakeets in (which had two doors).
So today I managed to dream in marketing campaigns and Undertale AUs.
The first part of the dream I can remember was me waking up. Only unlike in real life, at the foot of my couch-bed there was a vending machine with about 20 different choices in it. All of them were slightly different off-brand brown diet colas, each of them—probably because it was my vending machine—priced at five cents. I took out a “200 cent” coin reasoning that I should get a lot of change back, but the machine didn’t accept it because it was from the Philippines.
One thing to keep in mind was that this was from a slightly earlier version of Tyrian than the “definitive” version in 2014 when I started retouching a big handful of things, so it might seem a little different from the notes/pictures in my blog tag—the Chayavana are still referred to as “deva” for one. However, you can bet any specifically-named Chayavana/”deva” you see here would definitely have been a part of Tyrian.
Final note: remember while reading this that I was about 16 at the time, and this might as well have been my theme song. This was by the time I’d actually started to get pretty damn good at making foreign names that were linguistically intelligent and not just “I’ll pick this really common word because it sounds exotic in my language”, but man are the Indian/Japanese influences apparent here.
Last night I had a dream that… well… can’t really be conveyed well except in the form of a hastily-drawn doodle comic. So here you go.
(I dramatised it a bit, but minus a bit of extra dialogue putting wordless thoughts into words this is pretty much exactly how it went)
So… yeah. I went to spy on the Cube Army and apparently turned into some kind of cube whistleblower uncovering sphere corruption or something.
Things that are apparently true in the world of this dream:
Cubes have just enough sentience to move, though you need to put them on conveyor belts to get them anywhere
Cubes have a life history
Cubes can fly, but only if they have degrees; they can graduate (complete with mortarboard) just by going through a door. Humans still can’t do any of this.
Cubes might be ruled over by spheres…? I don’t quite understand it?
Just to be clear, the cubes we’re talking about look exactly like the default grey cubes that appear in Blender and probably other 3d programs, and are always the same size. Which I didn’t draw to scale but is probably about 60 cm to a side.
So Stablehand just got fucking terrifying today …I’m joking.
But once again, I just made up something that was such a concept it scared me
So, I’ve sort of been messing around with the idea of “Soul”, as an opposite… force? I guess? to Void. Void is the main supernatural/Weird thing that affects Stablehand’s planet. Because Void permeates the universe of Aluma, people can use the magic-like “cirque” to manipulate their environment and make cool technologies, travel to and from the Aether that Void comes from, and transform themselves into cyborg-like technotranscendents or furry-like biotranscendents.
I’ve been working on Asekai sprites some more, and feel like this is a good time to post them, so here they are.
Yard Bird is an “alternate” evolution for Feuvog, a phoenix-like creature connected to seasons, ambience, and life. (“Alternate” is a nice way of putting it… these “alternate” evolution routes actually happen when you do a bunch of stuff wrong.)
Why “Yard Bird”? All of Feuvog’s “standard” stages are named “(something)vog”, so I wanted its alternate ones to be all named “(Something) Bird”. The first thing I thought of was “Yard Bird”,
I randomly “panicked” during an online test that was pretty easy but I just really wanted to do something other than a test at that particular minute… so I took like four minutes to draw Red. Then I took like fifteen later to put in shades and do cleanup.
