Alright, all you fab individuals, just a head’s up that I’m going to blast off for another internet hiatus. There are a few reasons for this; one being that business hasn’t been particularly swell this year, so it may be best to just close up shop again for the time being; and two, there is a whole lot of personal struggling going on that I need to attend to and frankly, the internet just makes everything a whole lot worse and harder than it needs to be. Some of it is art-related, some of it is people-related. Either way, it’s just not very good all around.
So, I’ll see you lot around at a later date! Keep Tumblr warm for me, I’ll be back. In the meantime, if you need to a get a hold of me, my contact ino is still on the sidebar but if that’s being useless for whatever reason, here is the contact post for your super-cool-and-easy reading pleasure.
It’s weird, every time I see it I feel that there is no possible way I could have made this image (not in regards to the design, just the image / its execution). This is despite it being made over two months ago, and that I’ve managed to mostly repeat the techniques used since then to more or less similar results (they feel infinitely weaker though, eh). It’s not like it’s a blazingly new way to do art that I’ve “discovered” for myself, either, I’ve tried painterly colouring / styles before, with mostly disastrous results. Maybe it was how well it actually turned out after so many crash-and-burns (and forever weaker iterations) that’s throwing me off, I don’t know. Though it’s more than just how it was coloured, it’s the image in general.
Either way, I look at it and I think to myself that there is no way I made that, I’m not that skilled. But it’s in my gallery, I have all of the working files, I have everything that lead up to it, I distinctly remember swearing up and down while drawing the cudgel and fighting with the hand; BUT STILL I feel there’s no way I could have produced it. It’s an anomaly.
Hey, folks! Thanks to you lot I was able to pick up a controller for my laptop last week, so I can finally give streaming some video games a try! I won’t be able to stream any console games, as I still need specific cords and other hardware for that, but I have a collection of Steam and other PC games that I could share with you in the meantime! Some personal favourites that I’d love to stream for you lot are:
- Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
- Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus
- Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee
- Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath
- Silent Hill 2
- Silent Hill 3
- Silent Hill 4: The Room
- Sonic Adventure 2 + Battle
- StarCraft + Brood War
- StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty
- Super Meat Boy
I have a lot more to share, plus Emulators and ROMs for old systems I either don’t want to ruin by taking out of storage, don’t have room to play in my aparment, or otherwise can’t get my hands on. I’d like to try streaming either this weekend or the next, so if you’d like me to stream a specific game (we’ll go from start to finish if possible!), please shout it out! The rest of my PC games and ROMs that I can recall off of the top of my head are:
