I have been finishing some more art in the last month or so. Mainly right now it's a case of forgetting to relocate my sketchbooks to where i may leisurely find them.
I might try to "shade" the "Hipped Two Bees, Squared" piece. The word-play when thinking of the term (which i believe may be a song?), "It's hip to be square" made me giggle a little bit when i instantly thought of this image.
I've never really shaded "marker" coloured pieces. I've never really cared about markers for their solidity, but the colours can look interesting if used here and there.
And even though it's also flat colour, i am really happy with how Plum Goddess turned out.
I think it fits her, or the theme of the image, at least. Somewhat like an ancient Hindu deity piece. I might want to figure out a background. Perhaps another sunrise, but without spoiling the colour scheme, like in Alien Assassin Splits:
Which i'm still proud of, anyway.
Been playing a lot of Batman Arkham Origins
, since my dad also got it for the PC, and i can't have him playing a new Batman game before me! Haha. Pretty sweet. Not much different from City, but that's not a bad thing. Although, and a customer at work who was discussing this game with me also mentioned, that it seems like even if you hit the block-counter you get hit a lot more. The thugs really crowd and cheat you. But i've gotten fast enough (when my thumb isn't sore as hell) to knock out a large group of thugs with a continuous combo to the last guy. But in a lot of battles, even doing that you still get hit.
I LOVE the instant batarang ground take down for multiple baddies on the ground, and i got like 6 of them on the ground, and knocked them ALL out except for the 3 still standing up. That made my day. But i just went over to those last 3, hit block before every one of them could hit me, but just as the signal to block comes up, and Smack! Smack!! Smack!!! 3 Times, by each thug, even though i blocked! DEAD!
This happens almost too much and has me wanting to wait and vent my anger a bit before returning to it, heh. But it's Batman, and it's still great gliding around the city, and meeting some of the most prominent villains for "the first time," and just exploring Gotham City.
Not the same voices, but i can't even tell on Batman, and although the new Joker guy is no Mark Hamil, and seems a bit lifeless at times, he does a great job when he gets it right!
And goddamn, have i talked about GTA 5 yet? I know, what's to talk about now? But please share some of your favourite moments for all the characters.
Trevor. Waking up in gutters and dumpsters and in dresses, just being Trevor. The kinda guy you would never want to meet, and would hope gets killed... but damn he's hilarious and truly heartfelt at times!
Franklin's reaction to the special weed was also hilarious.
And Michael... i'd say that first scene where he rises from the backseat of Jimmy's orange jeep when Franklin is taking it back is one of his best scenes. I was really hoping Michael was the same character from Vice City. I can't remember that guy's name now, but i think i was wrong about that.
Gonna have to be moving again soon. In the next few months, or month. Who knows. Gotta start serious packing tomorrow, just in case. Now, i gotta make a decision between my belly ("feed meeee") or Batman, haha. I really wanted to play Batman tonight, but i end up wasting all my time online, haha.
