I want to know all about your fave video gameThis morning I started a new save data in Darksiders II on the PC and while playing through the first level one of the many reasons why I love this game so incredibly much seemed particularly obvious. Now I'll get into that right away but since I don't want to just ramble your ears full, I actually want YOU to ramble MINE full this time too.
That means I want you to tell me all about YOUR N°1 video game, the one you love above all else. Don't go 'I can't decide between these one-hundred games' but really tell me about the ONE game that has a very special place in your heart. I want to know everything about how you got to know it, why exactly you love it so much, what makes you elevate it to first place, why you would recommend it, what kind of goodies relating to it you own etc etc.
Surprise, surprise, of course it's Darksiders II for me.
I could go on forever about how the music gives me goosebumps every time, how the voice actors (among others big names like Keith Szarab
Thoughts on ESOWell, now that the NDA has been lifted I'm free to share my opinion about the next installment of the Elder Scrolls series. Let me just say that I was really excited about this game, even tough I'm not a big fan of MMORPGs at all. I still thought it looked beautiful before I played it, was intrigued because you could now visit pretty much all of Tamriel, and I figured it's still a TES game with the same feel etc. Yeah well, not really.
I've been in the beta a while back already and made use of that chance over the course of a weekend. I tried, I really did and I really really wanted to like the game but I just can't. Sure, it looks kinda pretty but that's about it. Yes, I even just think it looks 'kinda' pretty. Compared to the previous games (even the ones as old as Morrowind), the game lacks ANY kind of soul. The character I created was a Dunmer so I started in Skyrim and later travelled on to Morrowind. The environments felt so extremely uninteresting, I don't even know how to prope
Plumbers and PsychosSo. Valentine's Day is once again coming up. Any of you guys got anything special planned?
I don't really buy into the big hocus pocus and consider it that much different from any other day of the year but it is kinda nice to do something special with my hubby. We've bought New Super Mario Bros. U today and will be spending all day tomorrow playing that together, comfortably nestled at home, no place we need to be. And for dinner we'll order sushi from this awesome place here in the city.
Also. I love Borderlands 2. No. I LOVE it. It's like so frickin' amazing, I don't even. Krieg really does kick ass and I don't regret my choice at all. I've also started a save data with Maya but haven't played very far yet. And somehow I can't wait to try out Gaige either. So much to do. OTL
I've also bought the GOTY edition of the first one yesterday at a local electronics store which had a deal where you buy two games for 10€ each and the third one would be free. So we grabbed Bo
Krieg!I really wanted to finish Dead Space and start Mass Effect.
Then Borderlands 2 happened.
Urban ApocalypsePrepare for lots of rambling about Almost Human, Riddick, Harry Potter (might contain light spoiler), Darksiders, Deadspace and Mass Effect, and promo of a fantastic artist who's open for commission.
First things first. Check out KawaiiBentoBox's commissions:
If you like vibrant, detailed and unique anime style and you've got some extra cash lying around, then seriously, go have a look!
Next. This should have been written last night already 'cause I was totally hyped about it but at the same time also too tired to still write a journal, oh well.
Almost Human. I've mentioned it before. This brand-new sci-fi cop show with Karl Urban in the lead. Holy Shit. We're nine episodes in now and I really liked the show from the start. It's funny, thrilling and atmospheric with the right touch of gruesome. BUT. Oh my gosh BUT. Now last episode they touched upon something about the world. The world it's set in. And it's left me so much on the ed
Artistic Pet PeevesI was wondering, is there anything that really annoys or bothers you in an artwork? Like something that might be small and unimportant but that always seems to stick right out at you when it's present even though others might not even notice it? That could be in your own but also other people's works.
I think for me personally it's improper balance. A work can be incredibly beautifully rendered but if the composition is awkward in a way that the whole piece seems to tilt to one side it makes me feel icky and I can't even look at the piece for too long. I think most often that happens when the horizon isn't horizontal enough but also when a piece simply has too much detail cramped to one side. I sometimes spend hours adjusting a sketch just to make sure the balance is right.
So what about you guys? Do you have an artistic pet peeve of this kind?
I'd love to hear. :3
Take a Look - Vol. 21Woah, it's been ages since I've done one of these. OTL
Take a Look - Vol.21
Featured Artist No. 1
I've rarely come across an artist this talented with facial expressions and the portrayal of emotions. If you like exceptionally skillfull cel-shading, deep, lovable characters and immersive fantasy realms, then Eninaj27's works are just the thing for you.
Featured Artist No.2
A gallery filled with eye-catching portraits that show great use of lighting and a very unique character style alone make following this artist worthwhile, yet everything else you can find in her gallery is just as interesting and worth your attent
Lost Army of KittensCan you believe it, I'm actually in the middle of a pure scenery piece. Yesh, I'm still awfully slow, getting out of that darn block but I've been feeling more and more like backgrounds again. Feels kinda good to for once be drawing a work where I don't have to think as much as with people.
I hope you guys whom I owe stuff to won't mind being patient. I swear I never forget you. ;n;
I'm also kinda giddy 'cause we've had a surprise kitty visit last night. Let me first explain: Our apartment is too small to have a cat of our own. We've kittysitted the two Shorthairs of my mom-in-law for a couple of weeks here and there but anything long-term wouldn't work. BUT we have three windows towards a little backyard/garden and last year we aaaalwayyys had kitties there. Some probably neighbours' cats, some probably strays. There were at least ten different cats running around there and you were bound to see at least one per day if you looked out the window here and there. One of them even paid us
