Games and graphite

More stuff for level 3 of the videogame project (other links in labels down the bottom).

In other news, I just got back from "Halflife Drawing" - a life drawing evening replete with awesomeness. Along with the usual nude model were projections of animals and monsters, leaving you to combine the two elements to fill your page with mutant monstrosities and ferocious freaks. It was a bit of an uphill battle a lot of the time, but heaps of fun.
 10min pose, Blackbuck Deer (?) - 5min pose, some crazy-ass dinosauroid thing
5min pose, T-Rex (being fired at by sailors) - 15min pose, Tarantula
10min pose, Shark - 30min pose, Mothra

A great way to say goodbye to Sydney before I head off for a Melbourne holiday tomorrow. Accompanied by my fuckwit and seven of our friends. 

I wonder which, if any, of us will return in one piece?

Only time will tell.

Ovum -fork--yoghurt-> Jupiter

Eggs are so cool they can even turn into planets.
Blue bowls are so cool they can make cool things look even cooler.
Oversaturated colour is so cool it makes everything look like something from a mid-90s cookbook.

Is that space in your ship

Or are you just happy to see me?

Two more small things for my friend's video game project - spacecraft for a scrolling, space invaders-style game.

Captain Anonymous' ship!
A bit patched up, a bit rusty, but still capable of getting folks from A to B.

An enemy ship!
Brightly coloured and looking just a little bit like a bath toy. 

I've also included some preliminary sketches I did for these, as well as for a mining ship I'm yet to put together properly. Mostly because I got attached to the overall designs (regardless of how dodgy they look) before I realised I had to draw them from an aerial perspective for the game, if I'm going to be honest.

 For more videogame stuff there's now a 'video game project' tag you can click on at the bottom of this post. I have no idea why I didn't think of that sooner.

On the prowl

A couple of fellas that I'd really like to turn into a comic at some stage.
Two rowdy teen wolfmen from the 'burbs.

 And some dodgy sketches for auxillary characters. 

I suppose this comic is doomed to become another thing for the backburner, simmering gently over the coals as the perpetual tide of laziness wears away at my enthusiasm, until it is little more than a pebble of frustration to be skipped across the vast ocean of disappointment.

(It must be noted that the ocean of disappointment is a quite separate body to that which gives rise to the tide of laziness, with each being comprised of liquid disappointment and liquid laziness respectively - two vastly divergent compounds whose differences arise from their unique beginnings. Disappointment is atmospheric in origin, falling as small drops from clouds comprised of failure vapour in the stratosphere and solidifying further in the thick expectation layer near earth's surface. The laziness, however, tends to seep up from underground aquifers, driven by fear movements between tectonic plates.^)

Traction/distraction

My fuckwit is back in town, filling me with embarrassing feelings and gifting me with these awesome socks as part of a birthday present. I've never been happier to have turd on my feet.

Now, seeing as I haven't done a food post for a while, and because the events mentioned above have distracted me from any other creative output, EDIBLES!
Lazy, stuck-for-ideas dinner of stuffed mushrooms and inaccurate fried rice
Caramel popcorn icecream cones to sell at my fuckwit's microcinema... thing
Apple and cinnamon pastries with bonus mouth
Tandoori chicken, sweet potato and chickpea curry with tomato and onion relish
Rice pudding owing to large amounts of leftover rice from the 'Indian' meal above
Potato and leek soup
Stuck-for-ideas pumpkin pasta
Cake pops (again, for sale at fuckwit's microcinema), with bloody skull

Lebanese spread with beef kofta, tzatziki, garlic sauce, fennel salad and tabouleh, with some other dips I didn't make.


I don't know why I post food. It's some of the more pointless stuff I make, out of a necessity to nom. Whatever.

More fun and games

The videogame project my friend is doing continues, and I'm still slowly finishing stuff for it.

For the first time I've made some elements to appear in actual, playable bits of the game rather than cut scenes, which was fun because it forced me to work on a tiny, tiny scale. Pixels are cool.

These are all for the first game, in which the alcohol-lovin' Captain Anonymous must navigate his way through a treacherous maze in order to find his whiskey. 

There are bullets -

Keys -
Things that give you health and ammo -
A power generator -
That shoots bolts of electricity -
And, of course, the hallowed bottle of whiskey -
There is also Computer, who only lives in cut scenes. She is utterly devoted to the Captain, having had modifications specifically for his enjoyment (ice maker, liquor dispensers, serving tray you dirty bastards), as well as a range of facial expressions.
Apparently this project is now set to debut at the Sydney Fringe Festival, which is nerve-wracking to say the least. However the motivational power of fear cannot be underestimated. GOGOGO!
