Here we go! I got to the point in ghostslam where I was getting stuff done but didn’t really want to show it off until I was completely finished so I decided to save WIPS. It is a bunch of notes I have been meaning to put down on paper for a while!! About Jack actually but a lot of this applies to Cavi too so. These were two different things I had on a paper list of stuff to do so I decided to combine them.
Day 12 - Started. here!
Day 13 - did the face!! Spent a lot of time tweaking it. Also figured out my original drawings were actually REALLY SMALL so I had to scale them up
Day 14 - Spent a crazy amount of time doing the no-cut hair. I went through several different styles before deciding on what was ‘him’. Also did some cleaning up on the full body, gave him a face and etc
Day 15 - Colored and arranged!! Now I can make notes:
1 ~ Just a bunch of stuff about his hair. What it would look like not cut at all (just fluffed up), his regular styles, and then what it looks like when THAT’S starting to grow out. You would also see that with Cavi occasionally if he’s been in a mirror too long (extended mirror stays can trigger his hair to grow). Also some hairspray.
2 ~ While I have made a note about this in regards to his face before, I dooon’t think I ever pointed this out to anyone (besides Whitneys). Anyway, yeah, he has a lot of blush points on the rest of him too. lD
Also semi-weird layouts cause I was trying to make sure tumblr wouldn’t format them too weirdly.
I did my slam for today but I don’t want to post the WIP yet aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
I think I’m just going to take a screenshot of right now and then whenever I get to posting the final thing I’ll post the WIPS too.
At least I more or less fixed the ‘I drew too small!!!’ issue
Slow realization that this thing I’m working on?? The canvas was zoomed in like a lot
And my first actual WIP post of the slam! Was going to try to do more but iiiiii just can’t get the face right, so our friend will go faceless until tomorrow 8’DDD I have an alternate drawing list on paper that’s a little more specific than my computer list, and I’m going to try to kill two birds with one stone on this one (gonna also require color though)

AHHHH I LOVE IT 8’DDD SE is so fluffy and I love their body shapes! ALSO GDAMMIT JACK YOU ARE SO CUTE IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL ;AAAA;!!!!!!! <333333 ahhhhhh!!
Thank you!! SI has a lot of really angular shapes going on with their head and legs I love it |DDDD Also p. sure Jack has found the secret to infinite cuteness without being caught
Pen doodle of noodle! I love noodle. 8DDDDDD
And a reblog to my main cause this was Ghostslam 11/30! I really just wanted to draw a noodle and bust out my marker/pens since they haven’t seen the light of day in a while.
I did it my friends
100% achievements on Hotline Miami
Let us all rejoice (◕‿◕✿)
From last night again! A couple of SecondIterations and a small Jack in a costume. He still has his normal shoes on, and like, black jeans with black duct tape on. This probably involved a lot of duct tape.
steampunklayhr replied to your photoset “Ghostslam 9/30 From last night! I was having a ponder about wirehound…”
Ooooooh! 8UUUU THIS IS MOST INTRIGUING. *READS WITH GUSTO* I really like the idea of the nanite solution, it makes a lot of sense. o33o (I also really dig those Shiva doodles!)
Thank you!! I thought they sounded a little better (especially since Shiva is controlling/looking at so many different sections of the brain regular wires would be very difficult/too damaging to pull off I think?? but if there were nanites that bonded with normal neural pathways that would work out a whole lot more). But then this means there must be a whole lot more going on with the cable ends/ports than I had originally thought so!!! Hmm, more pondering required 8|aaaa
From last night! I was having a ponder about wirehound cables that I’ve been pondering for a while and finally wrote down on paper. Did not realize how much space those notes were going to take up. Anyway, pretty sure tumblr’s going to be a butt about this so I’ll transcribe (and put some additional notes in bold):
“Thoughts about wire/cables:
-They have a “locking” mechanism
-They can break! Requiring Shiva to replace them once in a while. Broken cables are actually very irritating + can make the sion a little sensitive. (That is, a broken cable can make the whole area around it sensitive and it is very uncomfortable. One of the notes off to the side mentions this - Cavi had a bad cable in his lower back that was slated for replacement but Shiva hadn’t been able to do it before she died, which stayed there until the wirehounds figured out how to take out their remaining cables)
-As far as internal structure goes I’m actually thinking - instead of actual wires being fed in during conversion, the captured sions have the port areas “installed” and then Shiva pumps them full of a nanite fluid? The nanites then attach themselves to the central nervous system - spinal cord and brain, with a little bit of spread into the peripheral nervous system. This forms the “wires” and also this method allows for deeper brain penetration while doing less damage. (I thought this made a little more sense/worked better than actual wires. The nanintes would only be active enough to attach themselves to nerves and form ‘natural’ wire pathways and can’t be….’disassembled’ or moved afterwards; they really are just ‘wires’. High density in the spinal column would still mean stiffness there. This would also mean that their heads are fairly saturated too ~ likely they are slightly heavier than a normal head would be but they would get used to it after awhile. Also because of the saturation levels it would better explain some of the other side effects, such as their better memory, sometimes boosted IQ, and being quite fast.)
-Simply pulling on the cables will not outright kill them - that would be way too easy. Maybe if a locking mechanism failed a certain way? Unlocked but not disengaged?
-So basically the main questions are:
—Cables and end shape
—How do they lock? How do they disengage?
—how does it make an actual connection???? (Since it is established that the cables can break from time to time and need replacement it follows that the plugged in cables didn’t connect directly to their brains; likely there is something going on at the port level that causes interfacing.)”
so it’s like 1 AM right, I’m ghostslammin, everything doing good, doing some illustrations on paper that need notes
realize I have way more words than art on this page
whelp hope you guys like reading 8’D;; Will scan and post it tomorrow morning. May possibly need to transcribe it
And this week Whitney and I learned that the more you joke about an OTP the harder you will start to ship it for real
