Sorry for the late, and unfinished birthday present. Since I started working like a horse all day everyday, I have hardly any time to sleep, let alone draw.

Can’t be bummed to further define his bum, so I’ll just leave it as that. Perspective and anatomy can go and get lost. Hope you don’t mind.

But the question still remains: is Alex a guy or a girl?

Exactly 2 months after my last post!

While everybody else has been on world tours and showing off photos of their travels with their best friends forever, I find the comfort of being in my safe haven which is my home.

Ah, the joy of the couch potato.

I think Skelly Emil should have a bigger head.

Haven’t been drawing because I’ve been studying. Yeah, studying. Studying to face hell in the future. I’m anticipating it, and I’m anticipating it well. I’ve noticed that if I draw, I can’t study. Can’t do both of them at the same time, or rather, I haven’t discovered how to do it at the same time.

Lately, I started watching random videos of Zero Punctuation and find it quite amusing, especially when he critics games that I have played, more so if I liked it. And from Zero Punctuation, I moved on to watch the Let’s Drown Out series. The videos basically boils down to two guys just playing a game while talking about random topics for an hour and I find it to be strangely entertaining at times. I’d just place the video on play and study whatever is on screen while listening to them drone on and on. The FTL and Papers, Please episode was entertaining, but I do acknowledge there are boring ones.

I’ve played a bit of Papers, Please and it’s quite amazing that Yahtzee can play it while talking, cuz I’m making 2 mistakes average per day even with maximum concentration.

Since I think that I won’t be able to draw much, or play video games much in the near future, I think I should just talk about random things like what most blogger do.

Let’s see.

When I was in my final year of high-school, everyone was getting riled up to score well. So the teachers decided that it’s a good idea to call some motivators to talk some sense into us ‘aspiring’ students. There was one particular motivator that I remember quite well; I don’t remember what he looked like to be honest, but I remembered what he said because I felt extremely (extremely) betrayed.

He said that we should not take paracetamol (or panadol, for those who’re not familiar) if we get a headache because those pills will cause neuron damage because it stays in the system for a loooong time and neurons don’t regenerate. With less neurons, you basically turn dumber and hence, you’re not gonna be the excellent straight A student that you aspired so much to be.

Yeah, my previous school was pretty hell bent on getting straight A’s for every 400 student in school.

So anyway, the naive me actually believed him. And I went through a few headaches and colds with much agony without taking paracetamol just so that I don’t turn into a dunce.

And guess what? First day of pharmacology class, I was told that paracetamol is a pain medication, works by inhibiting COX to reduce the formation of prostaglandins which are the mediators of pain and fever and that it is metabolized in the liver and that if it’s going to cause damage, it’s gonna cause liver damage first before proceeding to cause brain damage. And even then, you need to actually, purposely, take an overdose or your liver was shot in the first place for it to actually cause any harm because paracetamol has a quite well known mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics, dynamics, drug-drug interaction, yada yada.

You can argue that oh oh oh liver damage can proceed to brain damage because hepatic encephalopathy cross blood brain barrier hur hur bilirubin but you have to be literally yellow for that to occur before you get to the brain damage part and even then, the delirium is reversible.

And it doesn’t stay in your system for a long time. That’s what your liver is for, to clean things up.

I guess this is how people sometimes just blindly believe things which are told to them. I’m a prime example.

Dito from Drakengard 3.

He’s crazy and has a mouth which begs to be punched at but he’s somehow adorable because he wears shorts and wellington boots. He’s like a miniature version of Caim but more talkative. He also broke the 4th wall a lot.

I actually thought Zero and Dito had a thing going on throughout the game as he frequently had a line of dialogue with Zero. Turns out I was disappointed though because spoiler: in the end, he is the only disciple who Zero renounced in the last branch.

I brought this game based on this review:

Like the reviewer said, if you wanna play Drakengard 3, play Nier first, cuz Drakengard 3 is kinda hit or miss even with those who liked Nier. I don’t feel that the English VA is that bad (Liam O’Brien voiced Cent and Yuri Lowenthal voiced Dito, mmkay?), but I do agree that the dialogue can get quite vulgar. But I won’t deny that the game is very tragic in terms of plot.

Also I used a timing guide for the last boss because I suck, haha.

P/S: I still can’t accept that the entire cast pronounced Mikhail as ‘Mi-khail’ and not ‘Mi-kha-il’.

No more chains, please.

Reference, from the game Nier:

1435278225947I started playing Nier towards the end of my academic semester. The gameplay isn’t exactly the best, but the feels man, the feels. And also that last ending, which kinda stunned me, even though the game warned me like, four times. The OST was superb and calming. Listening to it really helped me go through my super nerve wrecking study and exam period which pushed my sanity to the limit.

I didn’t know Nier was a spin-off to Drakengard. So I went and played Drakengard 1 and …uh, these two games are completely different, haha. Drakengard 1 is basically “I don’t care what’s going on but what I know is that I must murder“. The protagonist is crazy, a psychopath; a mute psychopath at that. He kills everything: soldiers, mages, old, young, children, babies, you name it. And your company is like a ragtag bunch of misfits. Even though this is an old game, I would like to point out that the combat, which is central to the game, is atrocious. It’s so atrocious, I don’t think a lot of people would like to trudge through the game just to see the endings. But there’s a certain charm to his craziness and the protagonists relationship with his dragon is pretty interesting.

So I ordered Drakengard 3, and am currently enjoying it. But that’s for another post.

Took a while for the game to come in the mail. So while I was waiting, I played Rimworld. It’s a game about 3 colonists crash landing on a planet and the main aim of the game is to build a ship to leave said planet. Or you can stay there forever if you like it that much. You get to choose the initial three colonists and also the location of your crash so it’s not totally random. The location that you choose will affect how you play. Like, if you chose a Thundra location, it’s gonna be difficult to plant veges outside I suppose whereas if you chose a jungle location, you can grow veges all year round but there is an increased risk of getting more infection (lol, Malaysia). Also you can get raided with locals and bombarded with natural disasters. And your colonists each have their own personality: I had a demented chef who is neurotic and often gets verbally harassed by my other chef which often caused him to break down and lose his mind so he’s often seen wandering the hallways like someone with Alzheimer (oh wait, he’s demented). I had a socially inept miner who mines all day everyday alone in a hole without a care in the world and had her nose and left leg shot off. I had a researcher who had cataracts in both eyes – he is always off target in shooting but turns out he’s the best surgeon in the colony despite the fact that he can’t see what he’s cutting. I had a marine who was shot in the eye and hence can’t aim for anything but insists that she never ever ever wants to have surgery to replace her eye otherwise she’ll go into permanent PMS mode. I also had one of my colonists frequently stealing beer in the store room despite being forbidden to and she went on to binge drink and was found wasted outside.

It’s really interesting. Anyway, if the game gets too hard, you can change the difficulty anytime in the options menu, so I suggest to give the game a whirl.

rimworld

I have a stock of 6000+ vegetables. Take that winter. No starving allowed in my colony.

I also played Ori and the Blind Forest.

I’ve been putting off playing it for a long time because I thought the little guy was an alien. Turns out it’s not an alien and when I did start playing, I couldn’t stop. The game is beauti-freakin’-ful in both visual and auditory (auditory?) terms, more so when the game runs at 60 fps. Full of emotion and colours which dazzle – I’m simply amazed at the amount of quality placed in the game. Hope you’re good with platforming using a keyboard; otherwise it’s much easier to use a gamepad though the controls can’t be customized and are a bit messed up. Nothing much to say about the plot, it’s pretty straight forward and much better if you experience the story first hand. My only complaint of the game is that it is too short. Too short! You can complete the game in one day if you’re good. Such a shame really.

Anyway, here are some in-game screenshots taken at the highest resolution.

Salam.

Finally, after hundreds of gorillian years, I actually colored a building!

BAI DE WEI, YU WAN SEE DE SKETCH?

LOBBY2NDATTEMPT0

OSO, YU WAN SE DE REFERENCE?

DSC00235DIS ‘ERE PIC OF MAI EX-FACULTY. ‘Ex’ was inserted because halfway throughout my course, the original residents of the faculty decided to kick us out. Fine la! It’s not like we wanted to live there –  we got a better faculty where people don’t displace us like you did, hmph!

Also spent another gorillion year to put in some stuff in the previous empty room. And you know what, I just realized that the toilet door is beside the window, which means that if you open the toilet door, you’ll fall straight down to your death.

Hurr ai em not architect, but I do feel silly.

Salam.

This took me an entire day to plan out, including lineart and scaling and another entire day to colour including five minutes of colur adjustment. That’s two days of being holed up in my dark room doing something as simple as this.

There_must_be_more_to_life

May hand hurts. My head hurts. My back hurts. I am so not used to this.

And I didn’t even realize that it’s already JUNE.

Whoa, when did that happen?!

It is so much easier to start with a dark base and add in the lights later.

Yes, I just discovered this.

Alice

Salam.

Everytime I play any SMT game, it is an absolute must to get the following:- Alice, Cu Chulainn, Tam Lin and Okuninushi. Why? No reason. I just like them. The Raidou series are the best since you get to have Alice skipping behind you when you explore.

I don’t really care much about Jack Frost and I don’t see the appeal.
