Retl: I started doing a pic in Mypaint.
And then I remembered that I don't know how to work Mypaint.
So now I'm scrapping this and moving to GIMP to try again.
Retl: Jet is a colorblind engineer with piloting skills who has a family and world to protect with a few other teammates who pilot various kinds of machines to prevent hostiles from entering propagation range for planet Kibrosa. Since the planet has a tendency to copy and support _any_ life that gets close enough to it, the defense team is stationed out on the edge of the planetary system defending it from potential hostile entry.
His real name is Jethrothore. Everyone calls him Jet because of how much he deals with machines. He has a single dark red broad vertical stripe on the frontmost part of each of his ears, with amber colored eyes and a soft grey fur all over. He's an adult Kiddle, so his colors are very vivid, but deep and dark. Like most Kiddles, he is relatively small and technologically savvy.
His immediate family consists of his mother, father, wife, son, and daughter. Most of which are interested in technology more or less, but only the son knows a lot about ridable mechines, but he thinks of them more as large toys than tools. Jet isn't happy about that fact, but prefers his son's cheerful outlook on it to Jet's own slightly jaded attitude. Because of the nature of the planet, there are two Jets, one of which resides on planet Kibrosa with his family, taking care of them, and the other out in the defense team who doesn't get to contact his family a lot. Colorblindness has very little effect on his daily life. (Jet physically can see the color red, but with no other colors than grey to compare it to, he never leaarned to identify any colors. This does however lend to a natural bias towards red objects.)
Jet specializes in working with land-based quadriped animal-based machiens, but is competent with flying machines, and bipedal walker machines as well. He isn't too fond of marine machines, but can work with them when necessary.
Anonymous: woow i want to see more animations like this
Retl: I wanted to finish this, but had a lot of trouble doing so.
That said, it's waaaaaaaaay too time consuming for me to say I'm really interesting in doing much more of these.
Retl: Based on one of my favorite video clips I got from somewhere on the net. This animation is taking way too long to work on. And I totally can't figure out why the framerate suddenly dropped dramatically on me.
Retl: I know the name AMY is written right there in big red ink letters, but I'm not totally sure that's the same Amy I came up with a few years ago. For no, it's gets an unidentified_character tag.
Retl: KTAN is normally all robotic and psuedo-evil. And this is neither of those. I'm not really sure what to make of this doodle. It's not as interesting to me as I had hoped it would be.
Retl: I can never seem to nail these view-from-below like I want to. I KNOW that there's a way of doing this that really appeals to me. But I'm not doing it right.
Retl: " Pop goes the Balloon
Nessy trying to pop a balloon with her hands "
There was a youtube video with this title and description. That was my inspiration for this sketch. I really don't draw Nessy nearly enough.
Anonymous: Ever played Yoshi's Island or Yoshi's Island DS? This reminds me a bit of those little talking blocks that explain how to "Pound the Ground" with the Ground Pound move.
The Ground Pound is one of my favorite of all of Yoshi's Moves, so I considered making ALL of my characters have the ability regardless of if it makes sense or not. It doesn't take a whole lot to sit on something, but it does take a bit to really STOMP something with one's butt.
