Interspecies breeding

Ok, these ones got a little out of hand. Granted they are the more odd looking of the monsters but maybe I could have held back a bit more.

Monster Hunter Cafe

I went down to the local monster watering hole. With my trusty binoculars in hand, I drew everyone who showed up for a drink.

More souls for the offering!

Right after the Shadow of the Colossus/ICO ps3 bundle was confirmed, my game of the year 2009, Demon's Souls, achieved Greatest Hits status. This almost guarantees a sequel since it sold 500,000+ copies out of no where.

They'll be bigger than ever!

Wal-mart is already taking preorders. It must be true! Finally it has come!

You don't have half of the map to this.

*Spoilers ahead! If you actually believe Monster Hunter can be spoiled*

Boy oh boy, that last boss. Giant leviathan elder dragon. Ceadeus! He sure beats Lao Shan Lung in epicness. A huge lumbering dragon slowly walking down a canyon towards a city wall with some defenses. Pfft.
I'd rather have my giant, elegant, horned whale, gliding through massive underwater caves lit by thin beams of light from above. It was incredibly surreal. Helped mainly by the music. And in the end he actually fights you, all the while some track, reminiscent of Ghost in the Shell, plays in the background. Either way it was a great "final" boss.

I really should add in Cha-cha to the right to balance this thing's composition out but just having the one character fits the feel much better.

Hunt in your dreams

I seem to have trouble choosing between updating my blog and my deviantart. Why can't I just update both at once?! I don't know. Its terrible. I'm sure one could guess which took priority recently.

Anyways, I had a dream I was watching, playing, or in a game of monster hunter and this was the monster being fought. It just looks like a T-rex with its neck and head missing. I'm not sure what my subconscious mind was thinking when it came up with that.

Snakes! Why did it have to be snakes?!

I just HAD to do a Snake print.

My only regret is I didn't do it in time for AX 2008 when I met David Hayter. But I finally got around to making one.

Trying to think of the coolest Snake image was taxing. It began with 'which Snake is the most bad ass'. Well I'd say Big Boss Snake from MGS3. Then what is the most bad ass image of him. Of course when he's all hardcore topless like an 80's action movie hero laying into some baddies with a Mosin Nagant . . . wait no, a machine gun!

So after watching a couple of Rambos, Commandos, Terminators and the like, I came up with a pile of ridiculous machine gun poses.

Thin those out to a triawesome of candidates. And then finally select our lucky winner.

Stick a bunch of 'too new' gun silhouettes and a camo looking metal texture in the background. Make it a crazy bright color and hopefully the end result looks like the PSP MGS promo artwork.

This didn't actually start as a print. More just for fun. But I saw potential in that sweaty torso of manliness.

Bad ass Mission: Success.

E3 Orgasm

Well the Big Three's press conferences have come and gone with plenty of ups and downs. Surprises like, Nintendo dumping a steaming pile of games all over and Sony(who I thought was going to impress me the most) not bringing anything I was hoping for.
No shows Last Guardian, Pikimin 3, Demon's Souls 2, Ico/SotC HD pack and Uncharted 3 made me pretty sad. Most of those are long shots but Last Guardian? Come on now!
Twilight Princess' uneasy steps towards the Wind Waker style just seemed weird. I read that it looks that way to pay tribute to 19th century impressionism. Also that(finally) "Skyward Sword" will feature a soundtrack not unlike Mario Galaxy's. Hurray!
Anyways here is a review of a couple of random E3 announcements. Reviewed with facial expressions.(Let me just completely skip the sports stuff to avoid an overflow of negative faces)

Overall I'd say I'm probably going to be taking home a majority of the things I saw on stage over the last 2 days. My wallet is quivering with anticipation.

George Walton Lucas, Jr., died today at age 66. During an interview at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in L.A. about his involvement in the new title "Star Wars The Old Republic" it was brought to Mr. Lucas' attention that his shoe was untied. In his attempt to look down and tie it, he succumbed to his Jabba Du Neck which quickly suffocated him. He died standing, just like Obi Wan. George Lucas was known for being the owner, and visionary behind the Star Wars franchise. He will be dearly missed . . . despite the terrible atrocities he committed with Episodes one, two and three.

Hate Lakitu

Autum hates Lakitu. Most annoying enemy in any Mario game ever. An enemy that stays out of reach, follows you, and tosses nigh invincible spiky turtles in your path. And that's why Autum loved the hammer bros suit. She can't hate everything!

Autum loved Kuribo boot too. Nothing can stop the green boot. Not even Bowser.

Autum hate Tanuki

Can't say Autum was too happy with the Tanuki suit. I guess it is somewhat embarrassing.

While I wait for the means to get my commissions from Akon onto my blog, I will mention that I finally, after 20 years, completed Mario Bros 3. Completed every level in every world that I could see on the map. I played this game to death when I was younger. Trying to remember if I beat it or not ...and I can't. I know I used to flutes to skip most of the game and the P power to skip most of the final levels. Not sure if I beat Bowser though.

In any case, now it is complete!

Apparently Autum is not fond of the frog suit either. Maybe its because you look like you're being eaten when you wear it. She is not a Vorarephile.

Damn, did she like any of the new power ups?

Finally got around to ending poor, fallen Arthas. Earning me the title of Kingslayer. Which I think is the coolest title one can get, at least in a fantasy game.

Always popping out my home city flag, standing next to my favorite taurens. There's the new Lich King in the back, all flamey eyed and huge head.

Thank god Tirion isn't in this shot, I hate that guy.

Burn the Heretic! Kill the Mutant! Purge the Unclean!

Aside from silly comics, I also like to whip out some nasty faces. Simple yet grotesque and very fun to draw. All inspired by the crude MSpaint drawings and awkward postings of anonymous web forums/image boards(ya that's right, avoid naming the place, we all know it) Here we have someone who clearly shouldn't be allowed on the internet.

And then for the ever so common rage inducing forum topic:

Do you know the difference?

I'd like to think this is the difference between the casual gaming experience and the hardcore gaming experience . . . if it was a restaurant dining experience.

Drawing little comics is fun and relaxing. I'd invite anyone to give it a whirl.

THE KINGDOM IS IN PERIL.... me a statue.

King Varian Wrynn puts a statue of himself outside his newly upgraded keep in Stormwind. Meanwhile, an entire section of the city, The Gardens, is a smoking hole in the ground.

Priorities man . . . priorities.

Who the hell are you?

No, seriously. Who are you?

Turkey, needles and boots with a view

More themed sketches.

Food and Eating! I did an umbilical cord eating...a baby...turkey head. Sorta like how some animals which come from eggs will have a little nutrient sack to feed off of. In this case its a turkey head.

Zombie dog! Um. This is more of a zombie seeing eye dog. Sort of stitched together with whats left of the blind owner and attached to a wheel chair. The other dog is from a nightmare I once had which had little dogs with no heads. Instead their flesh was stretched over a sewing needle.

Shoes and boots! And because everyone got used to me drawing nasty weird things, I made a boot house. A fine boot house really. One I'd be proud to live in and call home. Maybe it's a boot cottage.

Now for fun, for all of these themed sketches, guess which were chosen by girls and which were chosen by guys.

Hold the font color changed.

What a long, strange trip it's been.

Not a trip. Well ok there was that trip to China but I'm not counting that.
October saw a disgusting overflow of games come my way. It didn't let up till March! Owning all four systems(ps3,360,Wii,PC) can be painful at times since you're given so many option for gaming. Only a couple years ago I had but one of those four.

But anyways how about a list!
Demon's Souls
Uncharted 2
Ratchet and Clank
Dragon Age: Origins
Assassin's Creed 2
Mass Effect 2
Resident Evil 5 DLC
God of War 3
Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Wow I think that's it. Not to mention small doses of the social experiment known as WoW.
And THEN a trip to China. Now its Convention Season! Which means working on prints.
I haven't been slacking this whole time oh no. I drew every day. I just didn't post.

I joined in on some daily sketching for a bit. Roughly one hour to draw a themed drawing hosted by ò_ó
Not sure what the theme was for this one. Baby bear? And I did a bear baby.
