So I like watching mayday, minus the dramatization because I think they’re ridiculous and almost comedic. I’ve always liked mechs but I just don’t allow myself to waste too much time on all things useless and impertinent… not to mention I have no idea how to draw them. But finally after years I asked myself, WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF LOL… so after I watched the episode on a korean airliner being shot down by a soviet fighter jet in 1983, I decided to draw a plane.

The episode featured a cgi render of the attack and when the plane was shot in the tail, it nosed up uncontrollably until it lost lift and fell out of the sky. It’s like a giant flying whale that got killed by fishermen ): So in the end I drew the plane as some creature just with commercial jet engines, wingflabs and… wheels LOL. It felt really satisfying to draw despite my having no idea how to draw something like this. It could have been from the sketch in the first photo because nowadays I tend to draw really light and carefully due to the fact that I need the clean lines afterwards, but I really like to be able to scribble hard and brashly. I was going to just leave it at the first sketch because I honestly had no idea what the fuck I was going to do with it, but in the end I decided to etch in some harder lines and totally ruin his day HAHA

Despite being very generic, somehow I want to keep this vaguely established big bear and I even want to give him a name! I was thinking about just naming him Mayday but that’d be naming him to his doom lmao… It would be strangely cute though since he would be a summoned creature and calling his name would also be saying help me. Too bad I can’t use him in CP because of all the mechness but who knows, most of CP resulted from my forcing out of place elements into the story and working everything around it LOL SO MAYBE HE WILL JOIN THE FAMILY………… or maybe it is just for the best that I don’t do that

I went shopping for christmas presents on sunday, but I ended up only buying one present and bought myself a skirt, shoes and a hoodie LOL;;; at least each of those was under $20 and the present itself was like the same price as the three combined ):

    Hey! Mechs aren't useless! D:
    I like the design though, it's really neat, and I think you capture the giant whale feeling you were telling us about :).
    Nice stuff too :P You're a good shopper.

  • Christmas, a creature that eats holes in the pockets and wallets of humans.
    Regardless that skirt is really nice! But i get paranoid with white skirts, worry about them getting dirty Dx

  • WhiteSunflower

    maybe "Mayday" would fit the CP world if they didnt have the wheels? XD

    also, that skirt is AMAZINGLY CUTE, it looks like you got it from a very fobby store *w*)+

    • yeah!! I got it from pacific mall ^w^ and I liked the creature for the plane parts so I don't think I should bother XD

  • The only time I watch that show on Discovery, is when I'm really, and I mean really bored, and seeing some of the older plane models is cool too. Now as for your sketch, this fella conjures up some kind of final fantasy-esque dragon summon that would be the result of a limit break XD. If he can't fit into the world of Carciphona, maybe he could be worked into some kind of original mecha/steam punk story 8D?

    I work in the aviation industry and mayday is like… A show every pilot must watch and know about. We also use it as teaching material after fully edit out all the crap and drama. Another show similar to mayday that talks about a pilot's adventure is flying wild alaska and ice pilots NWT. Flying wild alaska cators more to the general public and again, some stuff also turns into teaching materials.

    Some stuff are scary, but I also take what I learn from the show and apply it to my work haha. Its a good show and glad you liked it :)

    • hahaha yeah I like seeing why planes crash XD although my parents think I’m insane watching that since I’ve been flying frequently this year lmao

    • When people tell me they go skydiving… its quite lol! jumping off a perfectly fine airplane…

      but yea lol, especially how they dramatized everything… its more crazy than watching csi.. from a 3rd person perspective.

      and hehe.. hoodie. All started from that UWO hoodie… and ever since, I just wore hoodies LOL… warm and economical :D
