Amoena aka a girl likes games
Some time ago I assigned another painting job to my boyfriend. I asked him to paint Ghost Stories figures for me. I never really thought of painting them myself. They’re not particularly cool and their role in the game is not so significant. They just hop from one village tile to other village tile. It’s not like they have personalities. I mean, they all look identical. Even if the position was a coincidence, there’s no explanation for the clothes and hair. Or maybe they are quadruplets?
First he painted the ninjas:
I think the red one is my favorite, though I am equally pleased with them all. By the way, in order to write this blog post at work I downloaded and installed Dropbox to get an easy access to my Ghost Stories photo album. Once I was done with that, I remembered that I hadn’t adjusted the colors at home and that the pictures might need some cropping too and downloaded and installed GIMP. Gotta love admin rights! I don’t know why we’re granted with admin rights when we don’t really need it. Everything we need is preinstalled. I guess they just trust us. Anyway.
I watched my boyfriend when he started to paint the ghost and decided to join in. We ended up painting the ghosts co-operatively. It saddens me that I can’t say that I painted them, but it was fun painting them together. I painted them black and then I painted the belts and the skulls. My boyfriend painted the purple details in the head and together we fixed the mess around the belts. We were finished in no time.
Speaking of ghosts... When I was a kid, about five years old, I saw a nightmare of a ghost. I woke up absolutely terrified and ended up hiding myself under the blanket so that basically only my nose was visible. I still sleep that way. I gently tuck the corner of the blanket between my head and the pillow and wrap it around my head like a tight hood. For me that’s the only way to sleep. And yeah, I’m almost 25 years old now. At least I don’t suck my thumb!
