((Just so you know, I finished that MSPA fan-adventure that was eating all my time.

I’m probably going to take a few days off from drawing, which means I’ll finally get to catch up on Minecraft!!

omg there was an update and I haven’t even played it yet.

So yes, expect this blog to start updating again soon. Thank you for your patience!!))

((Experimenting with texture packs… I put in Optifine so they can make my water look nicer too!! Ahhh nicer water <3

It’s hard to find a texture pack I like though. Turns out I’m very picky?

I’ve been trying to install some water shaders too but I just don’t have any luck at all. It won’t work ;o; I’ll keep trying but bleh. I might just have to settle for what I have.

I’m kicking around the idea of installing some mods too, but can’t seem to find any that look appealing. I’m more into just, you know… improving the look of the game. Maybe I’ll get the Mo Creatures mod? Or that one that adds butterflies… hmmm.))

((Looks like fun things happen when I install a texture pack that doesn’t have textures for the newer colors of wood. Heheh. Here you can see a bit of my underground base, and also caves.))

((Anyway I don’t have a cute graphic for it, but I’m going to be at Florida Supercon in Miami this weekend. As always, I’ll be on Artist’s Alley! I uh, forget which table though. Just look for my cute art and an inflatable TARDIS atop my displays!! Haha.))

It’s that time again guys
Will you be at Metrocon this coming weekend? If so, you should stop by tables A5 and A6, which is where Hihoshi and I will be! I’m not sure which table is me specifically. We’ll figure that out when we get there.
ALSO my friend Jade is going to be hosting a Homestuck meet! It will be possible to win some Homestuck prints I’ve made at this meetup, as well as some other stuff. You should come!!

((This is why I&#8217;ve been inactive lately, sorry guys I had a lot of prep work to do. Updates should resume after the con is over.))

((Forgot to draw Irina’s scars on that last post, d’oh.

Smooth move, me.

Anyway I’ve been spending a lot of time working on some original projects! I don’t know if you’ve seen my one old project, Evil FTW, but it was this huge thing that I worked on for years. I’ve just begun the sequel/continuation/whatever! I’m so excited about it, you have no idea.

Anyway, I thought that maybe, since I have a lot of stuff to take care of (lots of work, lots of other projects, lots of secret things for this blog that I can’t talk about right now), I may slow down posting for a bit (a week? Two weeks?) and you may want to have something to read in the meantime?

The original EFTW is over here: http://evilftw.tumblr.com/

And the new one is here: http://appliedvillainy.tumblr.com/

I’m not going to plug it any more in the future, it’ll just be this one post!! I would love it if you checked it out, but it’s cool if you don’t as well.

Happy Minecrafting, guys!))

((OOC reply post))

Did you hear that zombies will start breaking down wooden doors? How horrendous is that?!


((I referenced this in my original post about Irina preparing for the new Mob AI, but it got lost in image compression. Whoops! I work at large sizes and then scale down for the web so it should have occurred to me that the book she’s reading may not be legible…

So yeah. Irina will be ready!! Although actually I play in Easy mode so it’s not a big deal =P

What is your minecraft username?

It’s SelanPike, same as pretty much everywhere really.

you should try the minecraft comes alive mod :)

Not just yet, I’m still having plenty of fun in vanilla!

You should totally get the Minecraft Comes Alive mod!

Gosh I hope that isn’t the same anon… please keep in mind that I hold on to OOC questions for longer so that I can answer them in bulk like this. Also yes I got the message you sent right after this one. But yeah, vanilla for now. I’m still having fun with the original game, I figure I’ll start jazzing it up once I get more bored.))

((OOC post, but here, have a screencap!
Anyway, I wanted to let you know, in case I haven&#8217;t already, that Megacon is this coming weekend, the 17th through the 19th, in Orlando, FL. I will be there! I will be selling art at table Brown 12, and also the 19th is my birthday so there&#8217;s that.
If you&#8217;re in the area, please stop by the table and say hello!!))

((Not just now guys. I get shy when other people are present so I only really go to servers that my friends are on. Social anxiety&#8217;s a bitch sometimes! If I become more daring as I get used to playing online then I&#8217;ll let you guys know so we can go on adventures.))

((Besides using Optifine in a vain attempt to get Minecraft going on my laptops, nope. I have been ogling a few though, and sometime when I have the time to fiddle around with that I may install a few. I especially have my eye on some shader mods, I do love me some fancy lighting, but also I don&#8217;t know if my computer can take it XD))

((Oh uh I guess a lot of people want me to make a server.

I&#8217;m not really responsible enough to be a mod of anything, so I&#8217;m probably not going to. However, I could post up my save file (after I clean up a few things, haha, I&#8217;ve got a few half-finished projects going on) and you guys could play on that or even make a server out of it if you are so inclined!

Also yes I am totally gonna jump down that hole.))

(( I got an island in an ocean biome near another island.

I&#8217;m gonna assume this is because I&#8217;m still on 1.8.1 instead of any of the 1.9 prereleases? D= ))

((Answering some questions OOC))

((Real quick now, then back to normal stuff!

This will happen eventually, but I’m still a little shy about it XD

The seed is Pirate Cove, if I remember correctly! I got the seed from Reddit.

Without armor, she looks like this:

Mind that she usually wears a full set of armor that I’m just too lazy to draw. I only have the one chestplate in the inventory right now thanks to a harrowing encounter with creepers.

I’ve been meaning to make a few tweaks to her skin to make it match how I draw her, but I’ve been a bit lazy about that.

Survival. If I take a screenshot that looks like I was flying, chances are I built something to stand on to take the picture. Or just climbed up on a hill or something. =B

Thanks for the questions, guys!))
