  1. Fuck, whee. I'm enjoying college far too much these days, hell yeah. I've started something called Multimedia, which roughly translates as "Fucking around with computers. And a bit of art". Right up my street then. Wow, wow wow.

    I'm really REALLY enjoying it -- possibly more than I should. Plus, the Token Cute Girl of the course and I are getting on famously... and I'm such a dillweed that I have not the guts to ask her out, even though I'm almost 100% certain she likes me... heh. Me fails it.

    Although, something really cool about this course is that we'll do a fuckload of Photoshop stuff. Whee, cool. I'm only a big, BIGTIME Photoshop whore, and I guess I'll have to show my skills at that as well as my drawing skills -- we were required to draw still figures who would only pose for a couple of minutes. We were instructed that details and shading aren't important, as it's an excercise in merely drawing the shapes we see. Guess who shaded and added fine details all in the requisite amount of time ^___^

    Then we had to draw with our Band Hand (tm) - in my case, the left. NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    Cute Girl (tm) posed for that one. Her name's Morgan, by the way. I all of a sudden developed tourettes, as I struggled to get my lazy left hand to actually draw, and draw well -- this is the one person I have to get right, otherwise I'm not a happy bunny. Morgan is absolutely gorgeous, and I really wanted to capture it.

    Because of the fact that we used out Bad Hands, Morgan had to pose* for ten whole minutes. Ouch. I took it slowly, to get it right, and actually didn't get around to the fine detail or shading; just the shapes. The result? Absolutely amazing, really. Painful though it is, I may have to draw more stuff with the Wrong Hand, because I haven't got my well-worn right hand's muscle memory betraying me at every step... I wonder if the same will work with textures...? Nope, cause I literally do them pixel-by-pixel. Never mind.

    [*; With her clohtes on. Gorgeous nonetheless ;) ]

    Back on the subject of Doom; the New Project (Cause I've now officially binned what I had with Intent2) is going on slowly (College, go figure), but great. All I'm doing is textures, and I swear they're some of the best lowres Doom textures I've ever seen... although rocks are beyond my resources, I've stolen some of those :D

    Fans of Quake2 / The Darkening / Murderous Intent will love it, that's for sure... although I'm still, even now, thinking of new (As in "Shock, horror, I've not seen that before) concepts for it, but some are mightily leftfield, and may not be seen in the final project. I'm even going to find a way to justify the time spent on it by using it somehow for college work :D

    Well, that's all I have to say in this bloggier-than-thou blog,
    This is Darth Jrrr signing off ;)

      Man I can't. College spending has wiped me out, monetarily. Damn. Well, I think I'll just use the good old-fashioned Sabre of Charm +2, and see if that'll work :p

      AN EXCUSE IF EVER I HEARD ONE.

      With a tenner I can take my girlfriend out for fish and chips and still have enough to rent a movie.

      Holy shit, stuff must be cheap in England. Movie rental is like $5 here. $5 for dinner here would be like 3 burgers at Burger King, 2 Arby's sandwiches, about 7 tacos at Taco Bell, a Quizzno's sub, or two subs from Safeway. I'd hardly call that anything near romantic. Of course, in England a ten is like $16 here but thats not much of a difference.
