Dark Souls II and Pizza

dark souls dragon covenant angry pvp dragon madAfter 3 attempts to scare me, he finally succeed. But I was playing Dark Souls II, so it doesn’t count :P.  Speaking about DkS2 it feels different then the first game. I’m addicted to it but I’m not sure it lives up to the last game. We will see.  My apologies for putting a gamer on a couch. I said I would never do that… I lied. I have followed a Penny Arcade covenant. FORGIVE ME. – Alex the dragon

Duty is Calling

I miss the Barnes and Noble in my small town that was closed due to ‘lack of interest’. Although I  commonly read books on my iPad, its just not the same as having a physical copy in your hands. It feels strangely ‘fake’ using tablets and book readers . Like I’m not really reading. My friend Cruz dislikes me using the ‘B’ word in his presence, the word ‘book’. But then he reads graphic novels…  Hippo-crate (the question is how do they fit the hippo in the crate :P) – Alex the Dragon

Key Concept Art Idea – Dean Alex Sheppard

I am experimenting with different designs. In the future I might or might not redesign the 3d models. Alex and Cruz has been a project of mine for almost a year now. One thing about the designs I have been torn with is the amount of anthropomorphism I put in the animals. I been everywhere from simply animals that talk, funny animals, to ‘humanoid animals’ that are basically ‘humans’ with animal’s head and tail . Each type has pros and cons. Talking animals cannot interact with human objects too well. If I use funny animals, then people think its ‘just for children’ and I have to explain why they wear no pants. I’m using humanoid animals right now, but I feel they would be more appealing if made them more animal like. This design goes more toward the ‘funny animal’ style but a little more realistic. One thing is certain I will be using the current 3d models for a while. It takes allot of time to make them.

Make no misnake about it.

I ate a whole snake! cheetah

Speaking of zoo’s I go there often to doodle animals. Unlike my partner in crime, I do not eat the animals while I’m there.

Note to self: Change ‘must of’ to ‘must have’. this is not a redneck comic.

When something hits the fan
