So I made bananacake for the first time and it turned out pretty damn good.
- 125 gram butter
- 200 gram sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla powder
- half a teaspoon of salt
- 250 gram flower
- 4 ripe bananas
Just mix everything together in that order one by one (mash the bananas of course) and bake it in a pre heated oven at 170°C for an hour. Tastes even better the day after. Enjoy!
Also listen to this awesome song my awesome friend Kenny made for another awesome friend called Fearn about this awesome thing called Britland City. Awesome info in the awesome description.
Hello there! It’s been a somewhat hectic and busy weekend so I didn’t get to posting this Sunday, sorry for that! Nothing too much new has been going on however, so it’s not like I’m behind on any updates. The only 2 noteworthy things are that I’ve been drawing a bit more full body pictures and that I treated myself on 4 new books, yay me!
Tales of Beedle the Bard I’ve already nearly completed, but it’s a quick and light read so understandable. I love the cover btw, it’s a lovely design. Then since I really liked The fault in our stars and Looking for Alaska I went ahead and got me John Green’s two other books as well. Lastly, The catcher in the rye, because I’ve heard nothing but good about it and figured I might as well give it a shot. You’ll find out my opinion on these on my goodreads as I finish them. If any of the few people who check my blog have suggestions for good books (I’ll go for any genre really) let me know!
Now I’ve got quite a busy week ahead I’m afraid. An exam, some tasks to finish and a Valentine diner, so updates may be a bit slower this week. No worries though, after that I’ll be having a lot more free time and I’ll be able to post more again. I’ll quickly update the goal list as well after this post. Exercising is going really great btw, my condition is definitely improving.
And on a totally unrelated note, I’m still freezing my ass of.
And so I finished my first game of the year. Since I have no clue what to post today I might as well write a short opinion about it!
Out of the 4 games I can honestly say that this one gets 2nd place. I love all them all, but story wise this was one of the more acceptable and believable games. Honestly, The Unwound Future was a good game, but a replica of future London in the build under actual London was stretching it for me. The story in this one is a lot more realistic and feels more like The Curious Village. With this information you should now be able to work out which one is my favorite, it’s like a puzzle! (worth like only 5 picarats, but still). I could work out several mystery’s before the game actually revealed them, but there was still a good amount of answers I had as well. I really liked seeing the professor and Luke meeting up for the first time, and personally I really like Emmy as a character. As with every game the animation and art are inspiring to me and the town of Misthallery is beautifully designed. It’s stuff like this why I’m into drawing.
Music fits the scenery too and especially the puzzle theme is still firmly stuck in my head. I know it’s just going to pop in my head every time I have to think about something for the next few weeks, because I’m nerdy like that. The puzzles themselves were balanced, but a few with a high picarat amount I found ridiculously easy. Then again, a few that were only 20 picarats had me stuck. Puzzle 145 specifically drove me insane and the one with the UFO I still can’t solve. Lastly there’s the minigames, which I still need to complete and will be doing so in the next few days. They’re nothing too special, but fun, so no complaints there. I think that kinda covers most of it, so all in all, really good game, as I’ve come to expect from Layton. I’m looking forward to the next game as always.
And in other unrelated and totally unimportant news, my toes are cold. See you this weekend!
As promised, here’s my first sketchdump of the year. When looking back at this month, I realize that while I have practiced drawing bodies in basic shapes, I haven’t actually drawn any real full body pictures. That’s kind of odd considering I’ve put so much time in practicing. I suppose I don’t feel confident enough yet to completely go for it, but I’ll try and improve and dare to go more complicated starting now. Already on the bright side, I’m definitely starting to draw more than just standard 3/4 with straight arms, so that’s a good sign. A long way to go but I’m totally up for it!
Hope you like my work, but I always enjoy criticism, positive or negative, so feel free to leave a comment. Also, why not drop a question or a request?
My apologies, but I just didn’t have the time to update yesterday, so I’ll post 2 in one go again today.
So, who doesn’t love Donkey Kong? I even added Dixie to make up for not posting yesterday! I sadly don’t have Diddy though, and I’m not even sure a figure of him exists because I’ve never been able to find back one. But then again there has to be one right? It would just be odd if they only did a Dixie and left Diddy out. Perhaps one day I’ll get lucky and I’ll be able to make the Country Trio complete. As for Shy Guy, I think he’s a severe underused enemy in Mario games and we should see a lot more of him! I mean look at him, his design is so simple yet awesome, so I was quite happy to have him as a playable character in Mario Kart 7.
See you back tomorrow for the last close up!
