New Year - New Engine

Chyrp pretty much died (last update in 2016), Chyrp Lite‘s codebase is too different at this point (I have custom feathers, custom image processing and probably a few other things, and I don't remember at all how I did any of it), and having a website with an outdated CMS is a major security hole. I've heard of Jekyll, but hadn't thought much about Static Site Generators until I encountered Erik McClure's website (through a link to Pony Clicker). I saw what he did with his blog, though about what I needed for my blog and eventually decided to migrate to a static website. I had a choice between Jekyll and Hugo. Jekyll required a Ruby environment and had some dependencies, while Hugo was written in Go and was compiled into a single binary. Also SlackBuilds had Hugo and didn't have Jekyll. So Hugo it is.

Terriermon in a shampoo commercial


Terriermon

I commissioned Nix to draw me a Terriermon the way models pose in shampoo commercials. I had that idea every time I was thinking about that image ZiPo drew as my website logo and that I vectorized in order to engrave it on a thermos (I think it actually fits a cup more since it's more wide than it is tall). She thought I was talking about my character, and I didn't object, but I did ask her to make a version with a regular Terriermon. Apparently, she considered it the primary version, because it's the one she posted everywhere and it has the highest resolution. Although it's a simple colored sketch, so not much detail is lost in other version.

Terriermon and Red Moon


Terriermon and Red Moon

Here's that image I never posted. Wow, it's been more than two years since ZiPo has drawn it. I never liked the image because colors seemed too dirty for me. I mean, there's so much brown, and it looks like Terriermon is covered in dirt. Actually, now that I look at it again, it's not bad at all. The detail is pretty high, the anatomy is fine. Maybe eyes look kinda insect-like. I'm still not a fan of the color scheme, but I actually like this art now.

Another Terriermon


Terriermon

ZiPo got kinda fed up that I wasn't using Terriermons he made for me (except that old 150x150 image from 2009), especially the one he was kinda proud but I wasn't happy with and never even posted, so when we got together one time and got drunk he decided to remake that Terriermon. And this time the result was pretty good. It's my current avatar for Xbox Live.

Apocalypse Pony

I found a reblog of a post by an artist, Zig_M, in need of some money. After thinking for a while, I came up with an idea for a commission. It was four horses of the Apocalypse in MLP style. Sadly, the artist declined payment saying that the commission was too interesting to charge money for it. Then she changed her art group a few times. And her commission practices are confusing.

It turned out, that I need a full featured website much less than a simple blog. I don’t want to have a blog on Tumblr, but I do like their implementation of it, so I went with Chyrp, which is pretty close. But then Chyrp died, so I moved to Hugo. The blog is NSFW, as I might occasionally post some pr0n and other disturbing stuff.
