OK my summer has been kicking my butt, but not necessarily in a bad way.  Not all the time, at least.  Here's to sum it up, and the first one is more me ranting to vent.

1.  I got a pain in my jaw where I've already had two root canals.  Not sure what the problem was, I went to the dentist and they found I needed a root canal on a WISDOM tooth.  So yeah, I just set up an appointment to get them all yanked instead (its just a wisdom tooth, after all; who needs 'em).  Unfortunately, thanks to FLIPPIN' GOVERNMENT HEALTH CARE, I had to wait over a MONTH with this pained tooth just to get a cursory check at the only office that would accept my insurance.  Then the actual removal failed, due to AGAIN, the GOVERNMENT insurance not covering knocking me out.  I did have some meds that were supposed to put me for a loop, but according to everyone else I had an anxiety panic attack mid-surgery and they only got one tooth out.  Not even the one that was the problem, either.  So they put me on ANOTHER monster long wait list while they tried to get the stupid government to OK putting me out.  Guess what; surprise!  The government doesn't care and refused to.  Now I'm waiting for the rebuttal to go through.  And this, people, is the SHORT story you're getting; I'm leaving a lot of government bull out of this.

My tooth started hurting in MARCH.  It took till APRIL til I could even look at a doctor, and MAY till I got a procedure done.  And I STILL have a gap where that one wisdom tooth was removed, that, by the way, has resulted in a hole leading into my sinuses that prevents me from blowing my nose or drinking through a straw.  IF ANYONE MENTIONS OBAMACARE OR THE BENEFITS OF STANDARDIZED MEDICAL CARE TO ME I WILL SHOW THEM WHAT A PAINED TOOTH FEELS LIKE.  It feels like months of heavy painkillers and redtape, and a problem only made WORSE.  And then it feels like being guilt-tripped by being told I can't complain because someone else is paying for it all.  While yes, I am grateful for that last part, that doesn't make the months of on-and-off searing pain any easier.

OK venting aside, now for the more interesting parts of my summer:

2.  I had three wedding receptions to go to, and two of them I was working background on.  The last one especially.  They took weeks of prep all total.

3.  One of the receptions took me on a half-month vacation to Utah, where I spent a lot of time catching up on old friends and also doing some prep for that reception.  I also saw Voltron for the first time, and it has been eating at my life ever since, lol.  I also spent a lot of time with a friend who got me hooked on a cycling anime.

4.  I house-sat for someone across the street for two weeks.  I did not take this job lightly.  My sis and I watered plants, vacuumed, cleaned, and looked after pets.  We made dang sure to leave that house in a better state than we left it.  We basically acted like a live-in cleaning service.  One of the few times it was messy was when one of the family members (who had moved out and was living somewhere else) came to stop by to get a few things from the house.  Figures, lol.

5.  I looked after my sister and her family for a week.  She has three young kids.  I'd have liked to help out even more, but I got sick half-way through and I don't like spreading germs, so I ended up not hanging around them so much in the back half of their visit.

6.  I had yet another friend over for a five day visit with us.  She lives down in New Mexico and grew up in Arizona, so there was a lot about the green side of Washington that we wanted to show her.  And I also had to get her hooked on Voltron, since she didn't have Netflix.  She returned the favor by getting me hooked on two more sports animes, one about basketball and one about volleyball.  So I've learned a lot about three sports for the Olympics thanks to my friends and anime, lol.

7.  Speaking of . . . OLYMPICS.  Every spare moment I can manage in front of the TV since opening ceremonies has been spent watching these.  I live for Olympics.  Its everything I love in sports.  I love rooting for my country of USA (and Canada, since I'm half Canadian) and others, I revel in the unity of the games, I relish every inspiring story about the athletes.  I DON'T like it when people cheat or act like jerks (I'm looking at you, bad-attitude Hope Solo, or you, the judo guy who refused to shake hands with an Israeli because you couldn't leave your political, racist attitude at the door), but I do like seeing the love that people in other countries can gain for each other and for their teammates.  You can get such wonderful stories from these games.  And I just love opening and closing ceremonies; its so fun to see what the host country does.  Rio has been such an interesting ride so far.  But I'm finding it harder to root for my country; we're sorta hogging the medals, and I'm finding myself rooting more and more for those countries without many.  Like FIJI!  Congrats on your first Olympic medal like, EVER.  And a GOLD at that!  That's reason to celebrate!  :D
So thank you Olympics, for giving me something to watch while I helped prep for my brother's home reception.  And thank you, Canadian Cable Channel, for having INFINITELY better coverage than USA's commercial-laden, ignore-all-obscure-events NBC.  I spend way more time with you than with them, AND I get to learn about Canadian athletes.  Double bonus!  :D  And the channel and the athletes have such a great attitude.  They're happy to even be there, and are ecstatic if they can manage something like 5th place.  And wow are they ever proud of even a bronze medal.  Its so inspiring.
Lol while I'm typing this, I'm rooting for Brazil's women's volleyball team versus China; this is a tense game.  I like to root for the home nation, and Brazil needs more gold.  Great job on that gold last night on the pole vault; that was spectacular.


So I REALLY APOLOGIZE to those of you who won the contest of mine.  Aside from the rest of the Olympics and further dental issues, I might actually not have anything else huge on my table, so I can now go back to working on your pieces.  I had been doodling in between all this stuff when I was away from my comp, but they were all Voltron related pieces.  A lot may not even see my computer, but I do have some I'd also like to clean up and work on.  So I've got my work cut out for me.  I'll see ya'll on the other side!

~Shada

PS.  And sorry for that long rant at the beginning.  I nearly deleted it, but I did drop a few hints to people that I'd failed getting wisdom teeth removed and I think that prompted some concern over how that was a possibility.  Hehe, its possible if you are on government insurance and have an anxiety disorder, apparently.  And I'm not as mad or frustrated as I was about it a few months ago, although the pain's still there.  What annoys me is the flippin' red tape that follows government healthcare around.  There's just gotta be a better way than this, is all I'm saying.  I'm about to just see if I can get by with having my bottom two removed without knocking me out; that's bound to be less painful than leaving them in and waiting another 2-4 months for insurance to OK heaver stuff at this point.  And I don't need the fourth removed; according to the doc, that's just sitting there and not doing anyone any harm, unlike the impacted one I had removed already.

Also, Voltron rocks.  And Olympics.  Just sayin.  :D

And the most beautiful Olympic Cauldron yet is extinguished.  Thank you Brazil, for those 2+ weeks of fun!  Awesome closing ceremonies!  Dang, this has been the most colorful Olympics ever, which is exactly what I was hoping for.  And congrats also to Japan for a fantastic segment as well, especially to your Mario/Prime Minister!

Voltron OC Sketchdump by mystryl-shada
Voltron OC Sketchdump

Its my birthday today!  Anyone want to draw my OC's?  :D  (kidding, lol)

I may be seeing an end to my crazy summer . . . once I recover from the last few crazy days and then prize myself off my TV and the Rio Olympics.

SHORT SUMMARY:

OC's I made for the Voltron TV show, because my brain won't shut off.  All sketches I did mostly without reference (save for the Paladin uniforms).  Had fun with coloring and background for kicks.  Done during the scattered moments I had during one crazy week.  One should look familiar; he's a character from an original story concept of mine.

LONG DESCRIPTION:

No, I can't stop.  I've tried.  I'm way too busy for this, lol.  I don't even have time to do my digital stuff.  And the Olympics are on.  If anything, I should be doing Hetalia art at this point.  But noooo, Voltron won't leave me alone.  And my sis and I keep coming up with fun OC's.

1.  Fitzaria "Fizz" Jestar.  She came in her entirety from a dream I had.  I introduced her in my Voltron Meme, so if you want a bit more detail just scroll down to #8 in the description (you'll also see I changed her haircolor; the turquoise wasn't doing anything for me).  But the quickie version is that she's a Descendant Altean (an off-shoot of the Altean race that escaped genocide by rapidly developing their camouflage capabilities and live a loner, nomadic lifestyle).  She works as a mercenary, and has collected enough weird life stories to rival Coran. She becomes their fighting coach, since she knows lots of different styles, although her teaching methods leave something to be desired. Mainly, she has a very cheerful, beat-the-techniques-into-you style which often leaves them rather bruised and battered. Lance especially lives in mortal terror of her lessons.
She also loves to cook, although only Coran can stomach what she makes.  Her homemaking skills reek, despite the fact that housewife is what she really wants to do (she's in the Altean equivalent of her late 30's so she's ready to settle down . . . sorta).  This is one of the reasons she has a super-huge crush on Coran, and makes it plain from the get-go.  Good thing he actually likes her, or she'd come off as a bit of a crazy stalker.  They spend a lot of time cooking and exchanging stories from their eclectic lives.  They're both talkative, cheerful people.  Only she's . . . violent.  Very violent.  Quite happily so.

2.  Lezda.  This is my sister's OC.  She's a Galran Druid.  And she's not on their side, not anymore at least.  She used to be all about the Galran cause, up until she found the plans for the world-draining technique/weapon.  Then she stole them and ran away.  It ended up being useless; they had backups (duh) and she ended up marooned on a forest planet for six years, where she used her arts to convince the tribal natives she was a goddess.  The Voltron team rescues her right as the Druid sect finds her and sends and assassin.
Her personality is rather amusing.  She counts herself a huge flirt and speaks and moves in a very sultry sort of manner.  She also uses her magic to create an air of drama around her.  Too bad her internal clutz ruins the effect; she usually trips when posing or accidentally sets something on fire when trying to use a spell to show off.  As such, the team assigns Keith to keep an eye on her and makes sure she doesn't accidentally break anything or kill herself.  She acts like this was on purpose and designates him her personal bodyguard (much to his exasperation).
She also has an inner cutsy side; she likes pretty and adorable things, and tends to squeal like a teenager when something tickles her fancy.  And she is rather young; she's the Galran equivalent of the Paladin's age.  And she reeeeally appreciates the appearance of her bodyguard.

3. Buzz Roswell. The only character here who's an original race of mine, because technically he's from a story concept of mine.  See that link for more detail about him and his race, but I've got a variation for the Voltron universe.  He's a Kiiree, an insectoid race that is seen as a bunch of dangerous savages by most the universe.  10K years ago, they were pirates and a horrifying scourge on nearby systems.  The Alteans saw their potential danger, and uplifted them with messages of peace, diplomacy, and science, not just busting up everything in reach.  As such, the race became fiercely loyal to the Alteans, so when they were destroyed, they settled down for a long battle with the Galrans.  They are one of the reasons Zarkon wants Voltron; they've been resisting Galran rule for all 10,000 years, although they are half-imprisoned in their own system.

Buzz is one of the few who makes it out, mainly to explore and to spy on Galran forces.  He's of the Science cast, indicated by his green tone instead of the red of Warrior or bronze of Worker or gold of Religious or blue of Royal (they change colors to match their chosen profession). His specialty is zenobiology, with a minor in botany. On top of those, he's also very observant and intelligent; he's good at making connections and detective-style thinking. His personality is cheerful, friendly, and somewhat cocky; he's smart and knows it. But he's not a great fighter, at least by Kiiree standards; at just over 6 feet he's really short for his race (who's warriors can top at nearly double that), and he's not very strong. Despite this, he's still a good fighter and really strong by even Galran standards, just not nightmarishly so like a Kiiree warrior.

He's got a very, very one-sided crush on Pidge. They're both smart and small for their races. Poor boy; its just not happening.

4. Having fun with the three OC's! Don't know where they are; they're just snooping some Galran ship I think. All three are enjoying themselves, although Fizz would like it if Buzz would not use her head as a prop. This drawing made me think of their heights, and I realized that they're all roughly around the same; between 6 foot and 6' 1. Fizz is REALLY TALL and lanky for an Altean, Buzz is itty-bitty for a Kiiree, and Lezda is slightly below-average Galran height. And I just now noticed they all have Z's in their names, lol. I don't know about you, but I'm learning something here. 

5.  Had some fun and designed Paladin suits and bayards for my OC's. Fizz's color is navy blue; that's the shade of her cheekmarks, and her hair is a nearly black navy. Her bayard splits in half and becomes energy-bladed tonfa (she uses bladed tonfa usually; you can see their handles on her back on the first image). She's VERY happy to find a new way to kick butt.

6. Lezda's paladin suit! She's doing her "evil chick" laugh, because she has a new way to hunt her hated enemies; her former druid comrades.  Her color is . . . well, when I pulled up color wheels, its something like "medium violet red" but I got it from the Galrans, so its their purple/fushia/pink that she has.  Her weapon is a dagger that can slide back and forth on the hilt, so she can rapidly change the angle the blade is coming at.  I asked my sis what sort of weapon she'd have, and apparently hand-to-hand isn't her thing, but stabbing someone in the back sure is.  She's still getting used to being a good guy, lol

7.  Buzz was hard, because the guy's not exactly as human-like as the other two.  He's got four arms, wings, and dino-feet.  I originally was going to leave his feet open (his species doesn't wear shoes), but the realized that would null the whole "spacesuit" thing.  Still not sure what to do with his wings; I guess they can survive vacuum now?  Even though they'd be useless in a vacuum.  He's gonna have to aim them straight sideways to avoid getting burned by the jetpack.  His color is also weird.  I was going to give him Cyan, but that's the color of the paladin suit glowing decals, so that was redundant.  Instead I went with his color in his own artwork, which on the pallet I found is classified as between medium aquamarine and medium sea-green.  His bayard splits in half too, to make dual pistols.  He prefers guns as a fighting style, since he considers his hand-to-hand sub-par by Kiiree standards.
(If you've seen my original concept art for this guy, you might notice I made a few tweaks to his design; his eyes are smaller and I didn't include the insectoid abdomen because I couldn't think of how that would fit in a Paladin suit.)

EDIT: Hate to make this longer, but someone asked a cool question about their lions' personalities and how they'd interact.  Make sure to read my response; I'd put it here, but this commentary is evilly long enough (although I may do it if the comments section gets too big). /EDIT

Augh, I talked to much again.  I can't help it; I like to share facts about my characters.
And do my OC's paladin suit colors remind anyone of a pilot anime episode from around 2000 or so called "The Shiners"?  At least I hope that was the name; I can't find it on Google.  If anyone can help me find it, it was a hilarious parody of color-coded team combiner mecha animes.  Aside from the main character who chose Red (because his brother said that was what heroes wore), the others in the team picked weird colors, like Slate Grey or Salmon Pink.  The dub was considered to be one of the funniest dubs ever, and vastly better than the original Japanese because of all the inserted inside jokes and 4th wall breaking.  I've been trying to find the thing for a few years but now I feel a real need to see it again.  It was rather popular back in my day, and rather sad the show was never picked up for a season in Japan.
. . . And now all this talk about hilarious but cancelled mecha shows is making me want to watch Megas XLR again, lol.  The one mech who can take on Voltron, as long as its Coop behind the wheel.

PS DEVIANTART.  I HATE YOUR CODING; WHY DO YOU KEEP PUTTING IN STUPID RANDOM SYMBOLS IN MY TEXT??  WHY ARE MY LINKS ALWAYS BREAKING?  WHY DO YOU HATE ME SO MUCH?
I can't fix this, because every time I go in to fix the last mess up, a whole new slew are introduced.  So I apologize to everyone if some links are broken or there's some stupid coding thrown in mid-sentence.  That is so not my fault; I'm hopefully going to fix it with this update.  *crosses fingers*

Big, BIG shout-out to BRAZIL!  Those were FANTASTIC Olympic Opening Ceremonies!  Especially the lighting of the most beautiful Olympic Flame ever.  It brought tears to eyes.

Even more amazing that this was such a good show on such a small budget, compared to big spender countries.  Just goes to show you don't have to throw money around to have a good time.  Looking forwards to the next two weeks, Brazil!

Voltron LD: Pidge and Lance by mystryl-shada
Voltron LD: Pidge and Lance
I know, I know, I have a lot of other things I need to do.  But I'm not spending much time in front of my computer lately, so I've been doodling.  And since my Muse is currently stuck like glue on Voltron, those doodles come out around that theme.

For those who DON'T know the show, these are my favorite two characters from Voltron, Legendary Defenders!  Lance is a bit of a friendly, narcissistic ladies-man, and Pidge is a don't-take-crud-from-anyone tech-geek.  And they've got some fantastic voice acting; especially Lance (big thumbs-up to Jeremy Shada of Finn the Human from Adventure Time fame). 

This doesn't have to be a shipping pic, but . . . well, I rather like it that way.  This is probably before they really realize it though; they're both noticing the other, but aren't really sure what it means or what to do about it.  Or, if you wish, this can be a friendship pic where they know they're friends and have to work together, but each one just doesn't GET the other.

OK so this may not be the most popular pairing around, and it may split UP other really popular pairings, and there's hardly any canon evidence to back it up, but I can't help it; I ship these two.  I think they'd go well.  Some arguments for this, I'll copy from my Voltron Meme I made:

"I like [Lance and Pidge] because I can totally see Lance not taking Pidge as a girl seriously at all until she actually does something girly, like wear a dress.  Then I can see it hitting him like this Girl Genius comic.  As the comic says, it would be hilarious to watch.  Also, Pidge sometimes hits him when he gets flirty and stupid with other girls, so maybe there's a SLIGHT chance she's subconsciously jealous."


But again, this is my preference.  If you want it as a buddies piece, then you can certainly feel free to do so. 


. . .  And it may lessen the possibly-inevitable sting that the popular "Klance" pairing will probably be met with the same, unrealized expectations that the "Zutara" warship did.  Because very rarely does the "frenemy rivalry" end in a relationship.  But, again, sometimes the fun is in the daydream, and who knows really until the series is up.


Since this is just a quick sketch, done without reference, you'll notice some things are off.  For example, this is now my version of a short--sleeved T-shirt for Pidge.  And I think someone combed Lance's hair weird (blame Keith; you may as well, Lance sure will).  But the lineart is all messy because its a scanned pencil sketch.  I wasn't going to spend precious time with lineart; that kind of time is dedicated to my Contest Winners.  But slapping on a quick color layer and shading was fast.  Background was a simple gradient, with some star and cloud brushes.  I'm getting better at these fast but interesting backgrounds!  :D

Sadly, not in much of a state to accept commissions or requests; life is hectic and books need writing.  :/

Although sleeping shots . . . never tried those before.  Not sure, can't promise anything, but I'll keep it in mind.

Wow do I wish I had the time for that; I actually have a team that's perfect.  They'd make for a HUGE combiner bot though, as each of them represents a different kind of train car (Engine, passenger, box, tanker, caboose) and each are rather large by themselves.  They're Autobots, but I could switch to Decepticon, since they specialize in hunting down prey and were rather aggressive anyways.
