Blog post No. 3,130: Allsorts

without comments

Sometimes when I’m drawing, there will be a theme, a thread or something, that goes through a few things. Lately, I’ve been thinking about liquorice allsorts. Just from an aesthetic point of view. I’ve been here before, briefly in 2014. Look:

And recently, I done a tweet about it, which ended up leading to some more drawing.

I did this in SketchUp:

And then played around, doing the allsorts at a uniform square size, I put the idea of Lego and building something with the square pixelly allsorts together and did this, a liquorice allsorts Reichstag. Right click on it to see it full size.

Kinda feels like a I could work on this. Feels like this could be the first step towards a series. Needs a bit of work, but it’s a start.

Minecraft Project Day 1
After writing about the fun I have had with Minecraft Pocket Edition (the iPad version) recently, I figured that a nice little addition to the daily blog would be to start a new game and play just one Minecraft day for every blog post. One Minecraft day is 20 minutes: ten minutes of day, ten minutes of night. Most of the time, I will be sleeping during the Minecraft night, and ten minutes isn’t a whole lot of time to get stuff done, so there won’t be monster blog posts every day; just a handful of screenshots and a few notes for each post. (This first one is a bit longer, just in case you’re not familiar with the game.) You may well be rolling your eyes at this idea, but if you like Minecraft or have any interest in purchasing Minecraft, maybe it’ll be vaguely interesting. On with the show!

Here we very much go. Tap tap tap:

And here’s the world I’ve been dropped in. A spruce-y forest kinda place:

And here’s me. I am female:

Punch tree, get wood:

Quickly use those wood blocks to make some wood planks and then use those planks to make a crafting table, a wooden axe, and a wooden pickaxe:

First things first, I need to find somewhere to shelter when night comes. Time to dig a hole. (Mining stone drops cobblestone, which you can see hovering down below. That will come in handy for making stronger tools):

Yep, this looks like a nice area. A lake next to a forest. Is this Minecraft or Sweden?

Hello, Mr Sheep. You will be dead very soon. I’m sorry about that but until I have some iron to craft some shears, the only way to get your wool (which I need to make a bed) is to kill you. Soz:

Sheep dead and gone, and floating in its place: one thing of wool (I need two more to make a bed) and one hunk of mutton. That will come in handy, too, to prevent death:

Sun’s goin’ down. Town to get back to my hole before the bad guys come out at night:

Nearly bedtime:

Inside my hole:

Yawn. I’m sleepy. Goodnight, y’all. (I wish it didn’t have the Leave Bed button there, it’d be more aesthetically pleasing for this daily silliness):
