I am so not motivated to do anything lately…

At least I kinda/sorta tried starting that long-overdue Robbiekitten shimeji:

I’m not sure which stance to use while walking, though (the one facing sideways makes more sense, and looks less weird), and I’m kinda thinking I should try to make him much smaller, so that he can run around with the Mabel shimeji, but I think I’d have to redraw him so he doesn’t just look obviously re-sized.

I also had to make his hair the wrong way, since shimeji files all face left, and when they go the opposite direction, it just flips the same image.  With his hair this way, it’s easier to see his face.

I dunno.  I’m just kinda “bleh”.

Jack, what in the shit…

…Mabel, what the hell did you DO??

…Shimejis are weird.

(Mabel is still available here, and Jack can be found here.)

EPILOGUE:

I was listening to an audio track on my blog, and Mabel decided to sit down in the corner of my screen,

WHEN SUDDENLY…

Hey hey have you guys ever heard of shimejis? There little people that run around your desktop, you can pick em up and toss em around or you can let them roam free and multiply as they please.

I made a little Jack one awhile ago but I forgot to post him. Now he’s up for download if anyone wants him! Right here»» https://app.box.com/s/m446314zc4tpqzr8utls

I don’t suppose there are other programs similar to shimeji, are there?

As it stands, I don’t think Robbiekitten would work very well as a shimeji, as he would walk on all fours.

Even if I made it a run, it’s just not gonna work with only two frames.

It just looks silly.

…sillier than he normally looks, even.

tdm1: Ya know, I just thought of something, that is, or at least I think is a great idea. Can you make Robbie Kitty and or Robin Kitty shimeji? Because that. Would. Be. Awesome. OwO

That sounds potentially dangerous.  I don’t know if I want to be held accountable for any damage to people’s computers from being filled with rogue Robbie kittens…

Hey Gravity Falls Fans!I got on a bit of a Shimeji kick the other day and decided to make Little Dipper for you guys:http://www.mediafire.com/?3r5fbs51cxb9agtYou’ll need 7-zip or Winrawr to open it, and you’ll need Java to run it
But after that you can watch him go on adventures on your screen, watch him read, think about the mysteries of your desktop and get annoyed about the amount of status updates a certain jerk posts, and fly around your screen!!

D’awww, look at this little critter!  He totally puts my Mabel to shame. :D

We left to make a couple of stops not even an hour ago. When we left, there was ONE Mabel.

This is what I returned to.

Who wants a Mabel, Mabel, Mabel?
Well, now you can have as many as you can stomach, running amok all over your desktop!
INCLUDES BOTH “CALM” AND “MISCHIEVOUS” VERSIONS.
Warning:  The “mischievous” type will not only occasionally divide and make more of itself, they will sometimes grab and throw your window (if it isn’t maximized).

Attempting my first shimeji. Heaven help us all.

thepuddingcup:

Soooo… I’m currently making a Dipper Shimeji. Holy shit.

I WANT THIS WITH THE BURNING INTENSITY OF A THOUSAND SUNS.

I also want a Robbie shimeji that occasionally just stops walking around, sits down, and hides in HoodieVille for 30 seconds.

In Soviet Russia…Pony rides YOU.

So, apparently, Windows Ponies view shimeji as just another platform upon which to perch.

Desktop Ponies, on the other hand, couldn’t give a shit - they just like to be completely in the way of whatever you’re doing.
