Somehow, after three days of failing over and over to get the damn solder to take to the contacts, I managed to get a solid connection and brought it back to the world of the living.



Getting the solder to stick was undoubtedly the most difficult part. The metal that's already on the board absolutely refused to melt despite having my self-igniting soldering iron on full blast. I don't know what its max temperature is, but I figured it would be hot enough to at least loosen the pre-existing solder. No luck. Despite that, I did manage to get the 60/40 .032" Rosin-Core solder to take, and routed the other ends of the wires to a 1.0mm x 3.9mm DC power connector. After that, I hot-glued the joints to help secure them. One quick tug would be enough to snap them right off otherwise.



For the red wire, I soldered it to the "top" (which is facing down in the photo) of the power connector on the board, since it was much easier to get the solder to stick to its exposed copper plating. The other two wires were the troublesome part, as I had to solder them to the actual connections in the board.




When I first tried to boot the device, it only stayed on for about three minutes before shutting off again and refused to boot afterwards. I later found out that I merely needed to let the battery charge for a bit. The light went from off, to red, to orange... And now it lives.



All that's left is to cut out a square in the back panel to make room for the mountain of hot-glue. After that, it should be good.

Holy shit.

Splatoon 2 Flow
I really connect with this character, as my parents are hippies at heart. Oddly enough, she actually does remind me of my aunt.

Handie and Toes WIP
I've been working pretty hard on the next part to Handie and Toes. This time, I'm trying to flesh out the pages a bit more traditionally before scanning them in. It's been a while since I've used a regular 2B pencil instead of a mechanical one.

Evolution of Wu
I created Wu seven years ago. I found one of the earliest drawings I've made of her while looking through some old archives and compared it to my latest.

In some really stupid and corny way, I realized that she grew, and I found myself feeling proud of her, as silly as that sounds. I think she's the only character of mine that's felt this prevalent. I'm still drawing her after all these years.

So...I was gone for...I'm not even sure how long. and I come back and finally get the chance to look at your art and lo and freakking behold you've improved so dang much I was left wondering if it was your art or official for a while. WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED WHILE I WAS GONE. 

Seriously man, I don't know what drug you've been taking but give me a life time supply. I can't even begin to tell you how shocked I am to see how much your art has improved since I last saw it. I'm not even exaggerating when I say shocked. Wow. It's just...wow. WOW. I'm amazed, seriously! Gonna need to get a lot of tips from you...

Thank you so much! I just tirelessly keep working on it. I'm stubborn if anything else when it comes to art. But yes, it certainly has been a while! I know you said you haven't been drawing much lately, but I still want to see what you've done! I'm sure you've improved a lot as well, whether you think so or not.

haha, the most I've done is doodles, of which you've seen on FB if anything else..aside from that I did just post a pic recently...I feel more like I've lost my touch rather than gained any new experience...Seeing you doing so well at everything you want to do makes me want to start life all over so I can do what I really want and not what I 'should' according to others...Seriously, you're amazing. I'm really glad you're doing well! You're a real inspiration. A real living inspiration. I'm grateful to know you.

Keep up the good work

That really means a lot to me, honest. I'm elated to know that I'm an inspiration to someone! I must say I feel the same way about you and your art, too. I've always admired the carefree style you have, and how expressive it is. Every piece I've seen of yours has some kind of tangible feeling to it. I'm particularly impressed with your doodles! Doodling is something I actually have a lot of trouble with. I envy people who can just fill a sketch book with doodles and scribbles, regardless of their quality. Doodles are awesome.
