Randomness

Easily the best 1200 Job Points I’ve ever spent.

Some comics aren’t amusing to everyone. In this case, I know 3 people that will get this joke total. For the rest, enjoy some stupid faces.

So over the last month I’ve been coming to a realization. I’ve stopped furthering my art skills. This bothers me to know end. It seems since I left school, I’ve stopped searching out new art styles and studying them. Sure my technical and detail skills have jumped leaps and bounds, but it feels like I lack a base, or something more fundimental that prevents my work.

This came up when I noticed how much I was getting frustrated trying to get what was in my head on paper. At first I thought it was my tools at fault. While that may be a factor, I think my problem is more personal. So I’ve decided to start working on this. I think my biggest fear now, is that I will fail.

So now I’m once again collecting art. Particular ones close to my own style so that I have a starting point. The problem is that this won’t be a fast process. So my frustration will continue. So emo-Ian will continue to be emo. =_=

Till next post.

*grumble*



Mass Effect

Pen found!

Originally I wanted to have a long winded quest dialog being spouted by the blue one. But I figure any words would only detract from the simple comic.

I did this comic because I recently finished that game. Filled my Morrowind urges quite well. Went the soldier route. I’m sure my past would show that as unsurprising. So this made the game rather easy.

Enthusiastic thumbs up on this one. My gripes are limited, such as how the controls for the Mako were annoying and the damned B button kicks you out of the universe map. (If you have interacted with that gorgeous map, you know what I’m talking about) I also was shocked to be treated to a satisfying ending. I guess Assassin’s Creed left me wounded and expecting to be hurt again… Damn that was a shitty way to end that.

I’m sure if Matt had the urge he could give you a far more in depth view of the game, being I basically treated it as a shooter with character building.


BSOD

Son of a…

Got up today and the first thing I did was open my computer. Cat jumps up and steps on the keyboard. Blue screen of death.

The error I got was it said the hall.dll was gone or corrupt. Transplant the HD to Jes’s computer and I find out that the whole damn Windows folder is gone. Not hidden or protected, gone.

My luck it’s a virus. Reguardless, first the tablet issues, now I’m just completely out of commission.


I liked the Mako parts, because you get to drive around looking for flaming ragdoll XP piñatas.

I don’t think I have anything to add about Mass Effect except that it’s the only game I’ve played where you can have lesbian sex without meaning to.

I’ve been putting some stuff together about serialized stories, but it’ll take a while to finish.
