Lapsed art student, part time artist and writer, full time spoonie. Lover of tea and the indoors. I'm on Twitter though I mostly Tweet about writing and whatever inane thought just popped into my head.


Okay, I'm back. Rather alarming number of notifications to go through. Will require several cups of tea. 
Won't be around for the next couple of weeks, off on my holidays! I'll be back at the start of October, but until then, ta-ra :)
Just wanted to say thank you very much for all the birthday wishes, you're all lovely :heart:
So I render overnight at 200k and what greets me when I return to my laptop?
A monstrosity of graininess. 
Well I seem to be able to get it at a reasonable density by just using the preview window, but the lines don't come out smooth. I am going to attempt another proper render because this thing isn't going to defeat me. It's not even got a huge number of transforms! I don't know why this, of all pieces, is giving me so much trouble. 
Seeing as there's been so much enthusiasm about my piggies, I thought I'd introduce them properly!

We got the trio from the RSPCA after our old pig, Apple, passed away last month at the age of six. Here's Applepig:

She was boss of the house and she knew it!

So, a week ago we adopted these sweet girls, both about a year old:

They were abandoned after their previous owners were evicted from their house. They're a bit nervous, but coming around. Ginny's quite inquisitive, but is VERY twitchy when being held. Molly's a bit more chill. 

They were listed on the RSPCA as Clarrie and Fallon, but the lady at the boarding house didn't know which was which, and we weren't too keen on the names, and THEY didn't have any hints to offer, so we called them Ginny (left) and Molly (right). They're rodents but they don't look very Weasley to me...

In addition to these sisters, we found a boar, Meeko, who is about a year and four months, who was looking for a home with one or more sows.

He came from a house with eighty guinea pigs. EIGHTY. He's a great big marshmallow. Easily the most timid of the three, even though he's much bigger than the girls.

He's also a total dumbass. I say that with the utmost affection. He's actually fostered, but we can fully adopt him once they're bonded. He's such a handsome boy. 

So we're working on bonding them at the moment, and getting them to warm up to us. On both counts, I'd say things are going pretty well! We put them together yesterday, and er, Meeko got busy, but settled down after a bit. Good thing he's neutered!

When they first came home, they would run at the slightest movement from us (if they emerged from their hiding spots at all), so for the first couple of days it was as if there were no piggies in the house! They're now a lot more confident, and we can usually get near if we don't make any sudden movements. They've even eaten from our hands, and Meeko let me stroke him today!

Hopefully it won't be long before they're fully settled in.
