WOOOO!

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 28, 2008, 6:22 PM



I think a massive apology is in order here. So here goes:

Sorry everyone! I moved house and didn't have the internets for a loooong time!

That pretty much sums up the whole situation and why I've been AWOL for ages. But I've got a lot of stuff to update on here, as well as a new layout (although saying that I'm not entirely sure if it all fits well because evil DA (I love you really) keeps displaying the same size header even though I've resized it a million times to try and get it to look vaguely right ¬¬

So if it looks screwy on your machine it probably looks screwy on everyone's machine. So please tell me.

And I WILL upload the rest of Jogakusei no Jar - which I should tell everyone is going to get a rename. I can give you the story as to why if you want, but only if you want. So if anyone has any suggestions for what it should be renamed then drop me a line! I'd love to hear from everyone :)

Also, I've decided to open the floodgates for commissions now that I actually have some time on my hands. Once I get a hold of the price list I wrote up about a year ago I'll post it and see if anyone is interested :)

Once again, sorry I went AWOL!!

WTF?!?!?

WTF HAS HAPPENED?!?!?

I watched Code Geass R2 (until ep.5) today, and I can't stop thinking about it OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I've tried to get on with the commission I'm meant to be doing for monday, but every time I put pen to paper, LELOUCH COMES OUT. Lelouch or Suzaku, one of the two. I wish I was kidding.

And I also realised another thing. And this is where the WTF comes from.

The idea of Lelouch being in a hetero relationship with any of the women in Geass actually makes me want to vom. In my brain, Lelouch is gay. Really gay. I am not a yaoi fangirl, but all I want to do is draw some LelouchXSuzaku.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!

So, yeah. Lelouch and Suzaku are totally meant for each other in my mind. If Lelouch gets with C.C or fugly annoying Shirley, I will eat my own face in disgust.

So I regret to inform everyone, that there will be some yaoi going up here just because I can't get it out of my brain.

Good games BUT SO BAD!

Spookyruthy UPDATE



What is the point of making games that are so damn hard they cease to be fun?

I thought I'd get straight to the point so that people don't have to read the rest of the rant.

I've recently been playing Heroes of Might and Magic 2 (yes, it's old, I know - it runs on 32mb RAM for christ's sake which is about twice the size of a typical youtube video just to put that into some perspective). It's a great game. The graphics aren't perfect and it's not 3D-rendered (which is considered almost a sin in modern gaming circles) but the gameplay is brilliant and great fun to play with others using an old school LAN network. The classes and characters are interesting and distinguishable, the maps are well thought out. In fact, the game as a whole is just... lovely. It's not art, but I know what I like.

So why did they have to get the campaigns so HORRIBLY HORRIBLY WRONG? There is HUGE computer bias towards the AI - to the point where in one particular campaign the AI enemy has - get this - a simple town with NO mines - AND YET - can manufacture 55 cyclopses (the most advanced and hard unit for the barbarian class) - AND - the enemy hero has managed to level up MONSTROUSLY despite NOT stepping a foot outside of the tiny isolated island they inhabited.

Do you know what a good example to compare to is? Placing a foreign nomad tribe in the middle of a random, barren wasteland of an island, giving them sticks to build with and then 2 years later you come back and they've not only manufactured nuclear weapons, but they're all up-to-date with the latest global fashions and everyone is obsessed with Kate Moss, thinking that she is some kind of fictitious mythical being descended upon the world from the Heavens.

My analogy sums the whole bloody campaign mode up. Sad thing is, it's not like anyone can do anything about it and fixe this horrific error. HoMM2 was released in October 1996 - 11 years ago - so I'm almost 100% sure that the game developers responsible for the mess that was campaign mode have either been bought out by EA games (along with everyone including your nan) or have been lynched by fellow campaign-mode haters.

Anyone else have any gaming horror stories such as they? *sigh*

It's taken me a while to actually update this, when I actually have a lot of things to report on for everyone - and this should interest most of the people I know on here!



UK Manga Circle



It has been decided between myself and :iconloudchai: that we will establish a proper UK Manga Circle - which basically means a group of artists that will be involved together under the same banner! Anyone that's interested needs to mail me - I'll try and set up a club page soon on here so everyone who wants in can be affiliated :D



Minami-con



Is anyone here going to Minami-con (apart from you :icontashasaphi: :P I already knoooow :P) because if anyone is interested in making a large group cosplay then drop me a line!



BTW, this is my first attempt at using CSS within DA. The limitations are sooo rubbish! I can't do half the things I want to do! *cries* So apologies for it looking a bit pants.


P.S. I'm Hawt :P

Whoa... It's been a while.

Righto, time to address some business on here first. First up, commissions are back on. I can now take them now I've quit my course. Also, I think me quitting drama is something to mention.

I'm now off to KIAD in Maidstone to start my illustration course either around nowish or for the next academic year... One of the two.

And other things... I'm feeling great! I'm at Allan's currently, but he's out doing some consultancy. We're very much on track... looks like the real deal! ^^

Jon and me are now chillin' in Allan's room... Jon is lovely beyond lovely... he is colouring my pictures ^^ Don't worry... lots and lots of kudos for him!

If anyone wants a chatsworthy, just send me an e-mail!

It's so tough to motivate one's self to do one's work. At this very moment, I am practically covered in emulsion, struggling to write my essay plan that needs to be on Friday night, all in Guy's room, who I have managed to kick out without meaning to.

I have tried my hardest to try and juggle everything, but it's all getting a bit much for me as it stands, so I have turned to my ultimate escapism: D&D and the internet.

It doesn't help that next year I'm going to be the anime society's secretary, which basically means that I do all the work without the recognition, and I'll also be doing even more set buolding for the productions next year. Not to mention my modules AND going to work. I think I'll just stick with drawing anime for the moment.

And hello to everyone that I haven't managed to say hello to in a while. Tasha, Looby, everyone...I miss you guys :(
Right! I've made myself a new promise! I AM going to post more stuff on here! Because there is now an actual scanner @ Aaron's house! Woooooooooooo! I cannot believe what sort of week I've been having.

I lazed around practically all week, even though I've got all my art work staring me in the face. Then on Sunday, went to a boot fair where it was dusty AND freezing. Found loads of cool stuff, but froze myself to death. I saw this girl that used to go to my old scout troop, Lisa, and she's put on a hell of a lot of weight. Then came home to find out that the radiator had leaked in the police room, and the room was flooded.

Wahey.

So we (Mum, Dad and me) spent the day pulling the carpet up and mopping. Have you any idea how heavy a waterlogged carpet is? Plus the flooding destroyed my dance mat along with most of my artwork! And my sociology notes, but that's not bad.

I should really start thinking about heading off to college now, and I have to explain to my art teacher what's happened to my artwork. I really want to just go and choke on one of my crumpets.

Speaking of crumpets, I'm hungry.
I apologise greatly for the poorness of the quality of the scanning. This is one of those anti-technology moments I have.
