  1. I have Blender but have barely tried're making me curious here.
  2. Fabulous work as always! Can never have too much red. ❤️
  3. Thank you! Some of the bits I have been working on for over a year. Also, there's no such thing as an uninteresting language fact (used to be a librarian, moi). This one actually had me squeeing; the book is set in Shropshire, so everyone is basically Welsh at heart. The name Sarn now makes SO much sense in context (narrator has a very ambitious brother). ❤️
  4. Thank you! I have way, WAY too much fun with Shape 3D. This house in question has at least two more (the book doesn't go into much detail about the layout). Next up: making a loom.
  5. Happy belated birthday! Hope it was a great one!
  6. "The room was all dim like a cave, and the red fire burning still and watchful seemed like the eye of the Lord. There was a little red eye in every bit of ware on the dresser too, where it caught the gleam." --Precious Bane chapter 2, "Telling the Bees." Can't see much of the window in this shot, buuut there's more to come.
  7. Thank you, everyone! And @lynxster4, seeing through it wasn't the goal quite as much as letting in a bit of light. Now, to building!
  8. So, I was watching a bit of medieval reconstruction when I remembered there was something odd about medieval glass I'd wanted to research. The short version: glass in many parts of northern and western Europe used to be made with wood ash to provide some of the necessary chemistry, so it had an interesting green-gold effect and was called "forest glass." Here's a window with forest glass and leading; I have been considering a medieval house model (from my favorite book) for some time, so now I at least have the windows for it!
  9. No but you have one heck of a memory! (Still mad about the lack of decimal point.)
  10. Where's the decimal? Where's the decimal?!?
  11. @Rick Brewster, how is it that Paint.Net always seems like the best program out there BUT YOU KEEP MANAGING TO IMPROVE IT? 😊
  12. Okay @Pixey, do you think Bill Gates would let this be the new logo? His isn't shiny enough. ❤️
  13. @Joshua Lamusga, I am impressed! Now you have me wondering how to paint a ghost quartz.
  14. I second the motion! Also I need to try this tutorial now.
  15. Oh what the BLAZES? @welshblue, that's insane! Even---especially!--students deserve protection!
  16. Heilung are Pretty Darn Awesome, aren't they? Uriah Heep too.... More! ❤️
  17. I figured Proto--Germanic was sufficiently old-school. If not I can find some Proto-Indo-European, and probably Kemetic (ancient Egyptian) if I dig deep enough. But I really, really like Heilung so....
  18. Thank you! One of the only pictures of myself I have ever really liked.
  19. Well, since Todd--the birthday boy, @DragonsLion--is asleep, I just wanted to pop in and thank everyone for him. (Don't worry, he read quite a few of the posts.) He got new dress shoes, and tomorrow his folks are taking us out to dinner. No hot dogs involved for either of us. That was my only worry with our names being the way they are. My birthday isn't until December. ❤️
  20. I was trying to be polite @AndrewDavid. Hot dogs don't agree with my ulcer, which STINKS! 😭
