Just giving everyone a head's up, I won't be around very much for the next 3 months or so. Tomorrow I take a 14 hour flight to Australia where I will be meeting up with the HMCS Vancouver (my first ship, go figure) to join them on their current deployment, afterwards I will be posted to that ship. So yeah, I'll probably check in once in a while whenever we hit a port and I can get some wi-fi but I'm gonna be silent a lot until I return mid December.  But you know what? This is actually the lesser of two evils. Had I not been posted off of the Ottawa, I would be busting my ass and losing sleep doing workups at this very moment to get ready for a 6 month deployment in February of next year. This way, I am missing out on work ups, I'm only doing 3 months instead of 6, and I'm getting it out of the way now rather than later. The down side is that I will be missing out on Halloween for like the third year in a row now thanks to the military. Sigh... NEXT year, maybe. Well, it's late so I should go sleep in my nice big comfy bed one last time before I go. Toodles.
Dare Master- Cover art by Didj
Dare Master- Cover art
A couple of weeks ago I was requested by my good friend, Yondy, of the Wasteland Wailers to design some cover art for their new song. The song is all part of the Fallout Equestria game that him and the folks a Overmare Studios are designing. Here is the youtube link to the song www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-0cgH… I know that the version that I am showing here has details not shown in the youtube link, that is becaus the uploader used the last work-in-progress version of the art rather than the final version.

Now I know that first and foremost, story is not as important to a game as the gameplay. but depending on the genre, story can be a very important factor, and not something to gloss over. That being said, this thread is about what makes a good story for a video game? Not a good story for a book or movie, but a good story for a game. What are some of the elements that are uniquely essential to this medium that would enhance the experience in ways that would not necessarily do the same for film or book?

One thing that I can think of for example is having the goal of the character be something that the player personally wants. Such as unlocking the mystery of why the gameworld is how it is, discovering new worlds to explore, or obtaining personal or financial power. One thing that Bioshock Infinite did that I liked was give you a very useful companion in Elizabeth, a character that you grow to depend on, then taking her away. Thus the goal of saving her becomes a personal investment for the player because the game feels so empty and alone now.

What do you guys think?

Here is the second page of my little My Little Mages comic. As well as the first time I've drawn Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon as Mages. I was planning on doing a traditional Mages images featuring these two, but I could never figure out what magical class they should be. Maybe you guys can throw in your ideas on that.

This is just something that I've been wanting to do for a while. I've been using Clip Studio Pro for a few months now which is a very good illustration program built around making comics. I've been wanting to get back into making online comics and I thought I would stretch my muscles by putting together a short little wordless series of pages set in the world of My Little Mages. Think of this as a nice little treat for all of you awesome people who have shown me to much love and support for my simple little MLM drawings. Can't say at this point how many pages exactly this will encompass, but the story will be short, simple, and entirely without dialogue. I'm gonna upload each page as I finish them, and I'm already 2/3 of the way through inking the next page.

Well, after spending a few years in art college, I tried to get into the animation industry. Realizing after a while that being an animator by far not the most stable career choice, I joined the navy. But my passion is still drawing and animation. I have a superhero comic called "Chillin' Civilians" that I've been working on for a number of years that I think you'll enjoy.

Have you ever considered doing the Mane 6 as RWBY characters? I think you'd come up with super cool designs!

If I can come up with 6 good designs (particularly in the weapons) that represent the characters well enough, I might.
