Learn to Program with Asher @ FurDev

Welcome to Programming with Asher!

Come on in! Wow, I'm glad you're here 'cause it's always nice getting visitors. Well, I'm Asher and this is my humble abode of programming magic, and life appreciation. I assume you've stopped by to start your journey towards computer wizardry, as my grandma likes to call it, so I'll just get right to it. To the right you'll see the navigation menu, from there you should be able to get to the rest of the site. Below is the latest news in blog form about all sorts of things!

Anyways, I'm not kicking you out or anything, in fact stay as long as you want (I can stay up all night, don't worry - wait, no I can't), buuuut... I don't have too much more to say here for now. So... nice meeting you, and goodbye!

"Beauty is the purgation of the superfluous." ~ Michelangelo

Sincerely, your friend,

Asher

Old ’00s Journal Entry 195 10/21/04

This is my old livejournal I found laying around my computer. I just thought, you know with my poetry and my seventh grade journal and everything, I could post is up here for posterity sake. I planned for this blog to be about my life and programming tutorials. I’m still working on the programming tutorials (as in, well, thinking about them). And all this old stuff, I guess is a good way to get to know me in a way. Mostly it helps me store stuff in a central location I want to look up later. So here goes. (Remember this is like 9-10 years ago):

Not a single doctor has ever saved a life, they have simply prolonged it.

I suggest and work towards saving one consciousness from death, and I am painted as unethical?

You tell me the logic.

More Fursuitin’

Here is a cool few pictures of the head in two pieces now. There are going to be some modifications, some trimming and sizing down particularly. Anyways, there’s also the booties in progress (they are wrestling shoes with socks over them. Elastic has been put on the wrestling shoes like shoe strings and then little pull on ‘handles’ were added using the shoelaces. Also pictures are the inevitable eyes (lenses) and foot-claws. We have prepared the left hand but have yet to put fur on it.

Talk to you later,
Asher

Fursuit Day 2

Alrighty, first we finished up the paw by sewing and gluing on the suede pads. You already know most everything about the paw so here’s a couple pictures:

[Pictures in later post]

Yay! It looks great in my opinion. Then we moved on to the head and jaws. For a quick refresher here are the upper and lower jaws with mesh attached. (Not all the mesh in the photos is attached). Also in the collage are progressive shots of the devoloping head as it was sculpted with block foam, an electric knife, scissors, and lots of sewing to mesh (the support wire) and hot glue:

[Pictures in later post]

So, tomorrow we’re going to start working on the fur ON the head. Perfecting the moveable lower jaw. Perhaps get to the white left hand, booties… we’ll see.

Fursuit Construction

Okay, here’s how it goes:

I decided that I’m going to finally make a fursuit / halloween costume other than the brown and gray old furry pants that I’ve been desperately clinging on to. Now, when I decide something and fixate, I decide on something and fixate. So, now I’m building a fursuit :-). And I’ve got pictures to show construction!

We went to the Taxidermist in Hot Sulphur Springs to see some bear jaws, but when we got there it turned out he had thrown out his bear jaws because nobody had used them for so long. There were weird markings on the side door, something about Barry pointing to Judas in a cross like fashion. That was kind of odd. Anyways, I’m not a bear, I just wanted a big jaw. All he had was an actual fox skull with a tooth missing. So I took that (it was rather small) and decided that we could use it for a model.

Which is precisely what we did. Using Polyklay (or something like that) we crafted an upper and lower jaw (no picture of the upper jaw yet, only of the lower jaw) and twenty black claws. You put this clay in the oven and bake it for thirty to forty minutes and voila, you have a sculpture. Yay for me! Here are some pictures:

[Pictures to come in separate post]

And then we worked on the paws! Right paw first, which is the black paw. It has claws (you can’t see them as well in the picture yet but they’ll be more visible in the end) and has fur stitched to stretchy cotton gloves (med-small size for me little hands). We’re going to put pads on from suede elbow pads tomorrow and hopefully accomplish much more happy fursuiting things. It’s SO cool (funky Invader Zim happy sound) ^;^.

More to come!

Requisite Work 77

LOST….

THERE ARE STARS IN MY CLEAR BLUE SKY,
AND I LOOK UP PERPLEXED, WONDERING WHY,
WHERE DID IT ALL GO SO WRONG,
WHERE DID THINGS START TO FALL APART,
AND I WONDER IF MY LUNGS CAN TAKE ANOTHER DROP,
FROM THESE TEARS MY HEART CAN NOT DARE TO STOP,
FOR IF I STOPPED CRYING WOULD IT MEAN I DIDN’T CARE,
AND WOULD MY EYES DECEIVE ME INTO VISIONS OF YOU STANDING THERE
WOULD MY EARS LIE TO ME FROM THE SOUND OF YOUR BREATH,
AND WOULD MY HEART SKIP A BEAT STRAIGHT INTO DEATH,
ALL OF THESE THINGS I WOULD EASILY CHOOSE TO BELIEVE,
IF ONLY IN OUR HEARTS WE COULD OPEN UP – AND EASILY CONCEIVE,
THE THINGS OUR SOULS HAVE BEGGED A LIFE TIME TO RECEIVE,
BUT THINGS ARE SAID AND DONE AND WE MOVE ON,
AND WE- IN OUR OWN WORLDS – QUIETLY – SILENTLY- LIVE ON
FOR OUR ACHING HEARTS OF FELT PURITY – IN SUCH AS INNOCENCE LOST

Finding this spark in eyes so crystal blue
Has taught me to believe in what is simply true
And that is to believe in these memories of me and you
And to go on in life no matter how hard —
For life is without a doubt just a test above all the rest
And we must continue to crawl beyond the light
Straight into the future of what isn’t — yet — known
For it is as my heart cracks and bleeds into open space
Do I realize in the mirror I see only your face
But I can’t — anywhere — feel the hands of grace
I’d pray to touch me in this cold and lonely place
And my bed has become a dark closet in my heart
For you’re no longer there to touch me in the dark
And as much as I try to solidly — quietly stand
The ground beneath me is licking my eyes like quicksand
And I find myself quietly sinking into the unknown

There, the blog for Atlas kind of works… but not quite.

It can accept a post, but there’s still some ironing out and there’s no comments or anything.
