Illustration for Design was the bane of every one of our majors' existance. Mostly because it was a gargantuan waste of time that cost a lot of money. Also because the teacher was sort of dippy. The point of the class, allegedly, was for getting a taste of advertising with designs to help with our portfolio. What it… » 9/26/14 2:05pm Friday 2:05pm

I think you made a good point. I think if all the drama with Ubisoft and Bioware hadn't been popping up around the same time, people would be less on edge about the idea of an all-male FF. Granted, I was one of those people that started to get my hackles up a bit, but their reasoning actually makes a lot of sense.… » 9/23/14 2:13pm 9/23/14 2:13pm

Argh! I am sick and won't get better. Last week I caught an ear infection, which evolved into a sinus infection, and I had another cold before that 2 weeks ago. In other news, got back from my convention. » 9/16/14 1:30pm 9/16/14 1:30pm

Honestly I'm sort of annoyed about this. On one hand better graphics are a good thing, but honestly if it's so advanced that games won't be backwards compatible, they should really call it something else. Otherwise people are going to get confused again. Not to mention it means I'll need to buy another brand new… » 9/09/14 1:26pm 9/09/14 1:26pm

I've been sick for the past week, which has made getting anything done before my convention next week very difficult. The con is next week but I am panicking because I don't have a ride down yet and I'm worried I'll be forced to go via the bus to drag all my artist alley stuff to the hotel. I reeeeeallly don't want… » 9/04/14 12:35pm 9/04/14 12:35pm

Yesterday I took the day off and went to the comic book store before going to the theaters and seeing How to Train Your Dragon 2. Seriously, that movie was amazing and the level of detail in the animation is mind boggling. Probably the first time I was watching a movie and forgot it was computer animated. The way… » 8/28/14 12:32pm 8/28/14 12:32pm

I'm such an Egyptology Whore. Like, I'd get into arguments with teachers over facts in high school. Also was a Greek mythology nut when I was a kid when the Disney movie Hercules came out. I named my dogs Athena and Selene. My recent interest is actually medieval demonology, like all the angels and demons named and… » 8/22/14 12:35pm 8/22/14 12:35pm

Science and Sorcery: Game Development prt.1

For the better part of the year I've been working with my friend Drake doing the character designs for his game, Science and Sorcery, a PC-based strategy RPG that he's been developing for some time. For a while I had to keep things under wraps until he incorporated certain features in his game, but now that more work… » 8/08/14 1:33pm 8/08/14 1:33pm

Funny thing is as a Barbie collector I actually know lots of male collectors and doll artists. Some gay, a lot not gay. Noel Cruz is a doll artist who repaints dolls to look like realistic recreations of celebrities. People are too hung up on gendering stuff :/ » 8/04/14 2:42pm 8/04/14 2:42pm

While I like both I like Spring Rolls a little more. They tend to be lighter than Egg Rolls and crispier when fried. The steamed kind with shrimp and noodles are also delicious, and are best served with sweet Vietnamese sauce. Egg Rolls are best with sweet and sour sauce or even plain. » 8/04/14 1:30pm 8/04/14 1:30pm

My least favorite sidequest of the moment is a hidden cave in Link Between Worlds. You have to do all these going through walls and shooting arrows to get to a chest, and all it had was 100 rupees. So not worth it. » 8/04/14 12:53pm 8/04/14 12:53pm
