8:18pm: Review: Rescue Bots Mega-Bot Deep Water Rescue High Tide
Mildly recommended, but as good as the better Hyperchangers that cost the same.

I was recently contacted by a fan of my BotCon decoys, and I agreed to paint up a set if he sent them to me. Here's the first two, Bumblebee and Cliffjumper as Glyph and Tap-Out:

1:00am: OC Homeworld Gem - YAG
YAG, short for Yttrium-Aluminum Garnet, is a purely artificial gem. Niobium-doped YAG makes for a rather strong infrared laser source. In grad school, I worked with a YAG laser (with avocado green case, a 1970s purchase by my advisor) that used a frequency doubler to get a green beam (and a half-frequency deeper IR beam we had to dump lest it bounce around being invisibly dangerous). YAG isn't my "gemsona," but it's as close as I'll get unless they make canonically male gems in the show.

Purple not scanning as well as I"d like, under cut.Collapse )

8:36pm: Fluttershy with Glunkus and Hobo
Glunkus and Hobo are a relatively new meme, fan cats from the app game Neko Atsume. Fluttershy loves all animals. She might be too embarrassed to buy their favorite food, though.

10:44pm: Warmachine: Journeyman Warcaster Pearl miniature
Turns out the sculpt doesn't quite match the art I used for reference on the previous drawing, mostly differing around the skirt. And yes, Warmachine boob armor is a bit excessive.

Buzzsaw (tablet), Shockwave (gun), Chop Shop (beetle...hey, come back with that!). Pipes not bought.
