Anyway! I have been in a bit of a bad mental spot recently and nothing was really working, which resulted in this...
|You see? This is what happens when I get left alone with nothing to do! I find the chalk and draw on the driveway - which solves the 'nothing to do' problem.|
Continuing through the week, my mood got worse around the Tuesday-Wednesday mark which resulted in these faces...
|A rough sketch - but I liked it (considering what a bad mood I was in when I did it) |
Day 8 and 9
And on Thursday... I felt better and there were three reasons for that - 1) I wrote five sentences that made me smile - 2) I found an old game that I used to play, which made me draw one of the characters from that game
|Yue - the merchant from Rune Factory 2. I really like the art style from the Rune Factory games and you can see the shift from game to game, but its still cool |
I read an article once about someone who justified the lack of female player characters in games by 'guys don't want to play as girls - in case there is romance in the story and have to kiss a guy'. And I was kinda ticked off, because I have been playing males in games for years - YEARS. I have played as guys who kiss females, does the same logic not apply? (Well, maybe not to me 'cause close my eyes and then open them after a good 5 minutes). The person who wrote that article pointed out that flaw. And once when I was talking to Owen about a game called Mass Effect (which he started way before me and still hasn't finished) the following happened;
"Did you play as male Shep, 'cause default Shep is best Shep." - OwenWhich then lead to a different conversation about how I regretted being nice to characters, because I accidently romanced one of them - which sucked.
"No. I played as female, because I'm a female and liked the option." - Me
"... Fair enough." - Owen
So the fact I can now play as a female in the Rune factory series (without being a second generation kid) is great for me. Anyway, I was playing the game when something happened...
|Only counts as one face, because I cheated and copy/pasted |
Mitch would know. He would understand.
Where was I? Sorry, I got sidetracked looking at pictures and now my desktop is overflowing with them... Uh... I need to clean it up now.
So Days 7-11: Mission Accomplished! The mission being to get back into the mood of doing creative things.
Now if you excuse me... I have a dungeon to sweep (and some pizza to eat)! Hehe.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
