Mud Season: Season One

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 4, 2014, 12:23 AM
June 1st begins Mud Season 

I mean 'Why not?' - everyone in the States acts like Memorial Day is the start of summer. 

Get hopped up on some overdone burgers and bring on the sunshine. 

I mean, that would be like Christoweenmas not starting on Christoweenmas!

So I like to prequel the Summer Blockbuster that is Summer with Mud Season. 

Summer is a time of joy and mischief.


Neverending days and sleepless purple nights.

So I like it to have an extended theatrical release. 

I like to tack on a few weeks on the front end and let it linger through until that first crisp Fall day threatens to bite as September wanes.

(Perfect time to send it off with a Wet Cement Pool Party.)

(Oh and worry not - I know I have some malingering prizes to dole out. SORRY. Unfortunately Three of the Four Horsemen of Apocalyps-ly: Physically, Mentally, and Financially  decided to 'Wring Me Out in the Old Year and Sling Me into the New' by letting loose the Dogs I'll get to them in the coming week. Sorry again :( :( :(

Anyway - with all that goodness that Mud Season brings - I suppose it is time to set the Carbonite Chambers...

:iconmudivy: ...Carboniu...


the Carbonite Chambers of :iconmudivy: and :iconhai-kulture: to defrost

and perhaps even scour the hyper-dimensions for :iconmistermysterioso:

Every Inner Conflict needs a few B-list stunt castings. 

Strangely enough - even though - Mud Season is a metaphorical pilot to Summer I discovered these two slices of Midnight Fun Cake the other day on the official start of Mud Season so I thought I would share: 

Shanster and K'Lar by Shannonandklara   Summer Time Mud by SymbioticFedoraGeek

granted the second was in the works for some time - but I barely know what is going on in my head half the time. Two thirds with Stunt Casting. 

How can anyone else?? 

Strange to find my Muddy Stream o Consciousness can be as infectious as the Ganges.

And then oddly enough...

Mud Honey: Origin Story 'Born of Clay' by Hai-Kulture

This popped up in my mail box on Sunday.

An origin proto for a character I created for a game on Kickstarter as a thank you for being a Helper Pixie. 

Just another step in my quest to either destroy Felicia Day and consume her soul or marry her in a ceremony unrecognized in the eyes of the G-dash-d and Wil Weaton - which ever comes first. 

Hmmm...I guess I should do a little SpokesVillainy 

Do you like comics? Do like games? Do you like comics mixing with games in that hey-what's-up-with-this-chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter kind of way? 

Do you enjoy a good mash-up? Do you ever sit up a night wondering - what if there was a MystiquemeetsClayfacemeetsSandmanmeetsPoisonIvy character? Do you then tell yourself 'that would be grand!' - even if you don't normally go around dubbing things 'grand' like this girl is wont to do?

Did you ever talk to your Monopoly box and say 'Hey Monopoly Box! I wish you were sort of like Magic the Gathering meets Yahtzee in a fast paced game of cape and comic battling?' only to have the Top Hat remain mum?

Did you ever want to own a piece of someone's soul? Namely mine? Ok don't do that! Let's keep all the soul coveting on the Felicia Day end of the spectrum. 

Then you should check out Capes and Villains on Kickstarter!…

(You should probably do it anyway - the Honey Bee/Dr. Cthulhu homage is worth the price of admission. )

Anyway what a start to Mud Season it has been!

Good thing I just invented it the other day. 

So more strange days can lie ahead....

:iconmudivy: WOOOO! MUD SEASON!!! MUD SEASON!!!!! Bring it on!!!

:iconhai-kulture: I hate to break it to you but she was speaking in metaphors.

:iconmudivy: WHAT??? GRRRRRR!!!! Why does she do that!!!!???

:iconhai-kulture: *shrugs* Ummm...what's with the inner tube?

:iconmudivy: I HATE YOU!!!!!

:iconhai-kulture: And so it begins...

Can I haz points pleaz?


(I just don't understand those things! Why should I be entertained by cats speaking like head trauma Yoda? That jerk is making a mint!)

I dunno everybody seems to do this so why the hockey sticks not?

I usually just donate points or use them to patronage classic works of silliness and toe wiggles.

I don't really wear hoodies. They don't mesh with my decent posture.

Hai-Kulture Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I am trying to catch up on the missed pictures :) 
sakuchaoran Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
oh i see =D .  well there is a question  i ask a lot of time, and as you're actually in my older work, do you see improvements on my new draws while looking my older? 
i ask because i'm always not happy and don't see really if i progress ^^ 
Hai-Kulture Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh very much so - not that it was bad - but there is more attention to poses and expressions and details - looking from the sap trail to the tarring machine to Sasha and I's tar spa - the sharpness of the expressions and details from picture to picture improves so more of an image or scene as a whole is created :) 

(Plus it is super hard to draw feet - and you do :) ) *wiggles toes*
