Game making?

So a couple people messaged me about my plans to make a game. As with art and just about everything else I do, my early efforts will be laughable and embarrassing.  

Anyone interested in me posting my progress or should I keep it to a separate blog?

I never thought of making a fantasy art book, but I’m years away from being good enough for something like that.  

But YES my ultimate goal is to get good enough at story telling/art and combine it with my programming abilities to make video games (I’ve made a few mobile games for iphone that I will never tell anyone the name of.  The art is so ugly omg).  I’ve been checking out Unreal Engine 4’s source code and it’s super sweet and easy to work with so maybe I’ll frankenstein my mediocrity into something cool one day.

kodrevas said: Lord Scourge being your favorite character, who is your favorite female character, in any medium, and why?

Death from the Sandman series.  A cheerful Death that loves everyone was comforting to me when I was younger and having a rough time.

cescarter said: Who's your favorite character of all?

ooh, that’s tough.

Easy answer is Lord Scourge because of how much he inspires me to try to make art.  Also, he’s something of a current obsession that makes it difficult to think of anything else.  I’m also not sure if it’s because of his character or if it’s the entire story and setting of Star Wars, Jedi, and Sith. 

If I had never learned of Lord Scourge it would have been Elminster Aumar.

$15 monochrome sketch commissions!

rashkah:

It’s that time again! while I organize my commissions infograph, I’ll be offering these only for a while (while I actually finish the damn infograph)

You get something like this:
image

  • I’ll draw whatever you want! (WoW, SWTOR, GW2, LOTRO, Wildstar, FFXIV, which ever MMO you play, original characters, etc)
  • You can also pick a colour if my default greyscale isn’t your thing.
  • NSFW is available as tasteful nudes.
  • Keep in mind these will be quick and simple, armour may be attemped, but don’t expect me to replicate it.
  • Include references (visual prefered) or a brief written one (or both!) as well as general personality (brief also)
  • If your character happens to be very complex, there will be an aditional fee.

If interested in one, contact here: » kjrashkah@gmail.com «
(Make sure you label your e-mail with ‘sketches’ or ‘commission’ so your address doesn’t get shoved in the spam bin.

The turnabout of these will go from one to three days after the payment is recieved. (Paypal only)

If you’re not precisely interested, but some of your followers might, I’d appreciate a signal boost!

It’s been 2 years since I started trying to learn how to draw.  I was going to do another anniversary recreation like I did last year, but I wanted fluffy happiness instead.  So here’s Remi and Scourge (again? as usual?) showing off what I’ve learned in the past year.
I’m not sure if I’ve been improving much lately, but I do know I’m far more comfortable drawing naked people.  So I guess that’s something :)

kabeone replied to your post:Local flavor
I love stories that describe the food especially from a character’s perspective. Not only does that tell you about the region but the economic status of the character and their background.

(I had to a thing.)

Seafood. Sea food. Food from the sea. Excepting the rubbery whale meat that had unhappily dominated his cuisine growing up Wynston could imagine nothing edible rising from the cold misery that was the ocean.

He smiled and accepted another small helping of something with legs and yellow eyes.

The drinks here, now, they were a revelation. The residents of this unassuming planet had brought out with their welcome spread three distinct hard beverages that Wynston could get used to. Now if only they weren’t served over beds of blue leaves housing piles of cold glistening moving ribbons…

He smiled, and bit the leggy thing in half, and thought wistfully of Imperial ration bars.

azhuresunsoar:

I think the one I was looking at was annual paid monthly, because the dropdown had annual paid monthly and annual prepaid.  Is there another options or is the first one what you meant?  I was just looking at the CC/Photography version.

They kind of hid this thing http://www.adobe.com/misc/subscription_terms.html

They don’t seem to have month to month for the Photography, the one I was thinking about was Single App (but month to month is 3x as much so that sucks).  The main thing to look at is that if you cancel the “Annual plan, paid monthly” they charge 50% of the remaining months (unless you cancel within the first 30 days).  It’s just something to be aware of, but it is still a pretty good deal.

azhuresunsoar:

so now that I’m finally caught up with my dash from like.. last night.

has anyone tried the adobe creative cloud thing?  I’m kinda pondering it, since you can pay monthly, and that’s sure as hell more affordable than the like.. 1600 or something it costs for CS6.  It’s 9.99/mo for photoshop + lightroom for an individual subscription.

I am using it.  Make sure the price you’re looking at is month to month and not an annual commitment because they will charge you a % of the difference if you cancel. (Or something, I don’t remember, anyway just double check that you can cancel without penalty).  

The licensing is pretty good, once you activate it you can run the software offline for quite some time before it forces you to log in to make sure your subscription is valid.
