Figure Close Up – Day 7

And here we are on this dawn of the final day! I saved my favorite figures from my all time favorite game for last. Why yes, you get 2 for the price of one today, because these two just fit together perfectly.

It’s not straight away noticable, but sadly my Fierce Deity Link is missing a piece of his ear. Back when I bought it I made the mistake of not checking the box first, so when I opened it afterwards he was actually decapitated. Words still can’t express my rage when I saw it and I was really disappointed. Thankfully I did manage to glue the head back on properly with the correct materials, but that piece of ear was nowhere to be found. Still it currently stands as one of my favorite & biggest figures. The Skullkid figure however is in perfect state and you have no idea how glad I am to have it. Majora’s Mask honestly is my favorite out of all the Zelda games, and yes, that includes OoT or LttP, deal with it.

And that was the first out of 12 photo themes, I hope you liked this one and tips or ideas are always welcome for the future challenges.

I’ve also gone ahead and updated my goals. I know there’s still 2 days left till the month is over but I feel it’s more appropriate to do this every end of the week. I went this whole week with just water and 3 cups of coffee so that’s 1/4 for that challenge. I’m honestly craving for some Fanta right now so I don’t think I could keep going on water just alone, but I will try and make it a habit to drink more water than soda in the future. When it comes to reading I finished both Quidditch through the ages & Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them. Not particularly long books, but they count! Besides that just the usual stuff like exercising, drawing, etc. have all been done.

Things I’ve failed at so far are:

  • Running twice a month: Absolutely no running was done, but again, it’s freezing outside and I don’t feel like getting sick any time soon.
  • Do a video every month: I’ve had no idea about what to do one so far, suggestions are welcome
  • Do something Graphic Design Related outside of school: Because honestly I couldn’t be bothered and preferred to focus on my traditional art so it’s not really a loss for me.

So for  my first month I think I did pretty good. I’ll do my best to catch up with the things I haven’t done, but I’m not forcing myself anything, only when I actually feel like doing them.

That’s all for today, so I’ll see you guys back with my first Sketchdump of the month on Tuesday!

Figure Close Up – Day 5 & 6

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!
