i hate this day. and it's a monday. how typical.

work is becoming such a tedious chore. especially when your programmer tells you all (when i say all, i mean 150+ pixel sprites) the art assets you made must be rearranged to ensure a smooth mirror-imaging system.

it only takes one fucking hard code to have the engine conform to the gazillion art assets i made. one fucking hard code that'd take less than a day. and i'm the one being asked to reconfigure?!? that's gonna take 3 fucking days, goddammit, not to mention a few trillion neurons sacrificed for mechanical, menial shit!

and when i'm done with that, i'm expected to churn out MMS, picture messages, and operator logos for crappy cellphones! that's a goddamn-shit-for-brains-idiot's job! i didn't self-study photoshop and color theory just to do fucking MMS. that is, by far, the most insulting, degrading thing i've ever been asked to "use my creative juices" on. it's a been-there-done-that thing for me and i don't intend to relive it in this or any other lifetime.

shit. i need a cigarette or i'm gonna burst...
so my PC's been dead for about a couple of months now... haven't been able to sit down and draw some real mean stuff because i won't be able to color it. as a result, a lot of pet projects in my pipeline have slowed down to a grinding halt.

and i won't be able to buy a new PC until December. Fuck. T_T

so i'm reduced to doodling here at work. and work is starting to bore me. Crap.

i've had better days...
been working on justplainjoe's drawing. obviously haven't finished it yet.

so i decided to ART DUMP.

yeah, i finally uploaded some concept art (whose publicity has long been overdue) and some pixel art. hope you guys check 'em out, particulary the pixel art. i'm darn proud of those :D

and i also did a *hehe* wallpaper.

'til next... ;)
Whoa! That was fast. wasn't expecting it to hit 4000 until at least tomorrow.

Thanks to justplainjoe for posting it in his newsgroup. the pageviews DID skyrocket. I only wish those hits meant all those people actually looked at my gallery and dropped a comment or two... oh, well. ;P

now, onto THE ONE TRUE WINNER (the one who sent me a note with attached screenshot FIRST):
From: ~PoisonArrow

Yep. PoisonArrow, whoever you are, i'll make a drawing for you. ;)

Sorry, justplainjoe. PoisonArrow beat you to the punch by a mere 2.35 seconds. Here's what justplainjoe's note looked like:

Cheers to all. I better start crackin' on PoisonArrow's gift art, whatever it is. ;)
Motivation is hard to come by for me lately so this little race to the 4000th pageview might just take me out of the pits of procrastination.

Here's the deal:
Be the 4000th pageviewer and i'll make one drawing for you-- anything you want, and color it too. I'll post the drawing in my gallery and dedicate the description to you.

Some rules though:
1. Send me a note with a screenshot of the pageview, proving you are, indeed, the 4000th viewer. Also, indicate in the note what you want me to draw for you.
2. I'll only consider ONE winner. if there are two of you who got the 4000th hit (i don't understand how this happens, but it happens), the first person who sends me the note + screenshot is THE winner.

I'll be announcing the winner here in my journal and send a personal note to the winner as well. ;)

Hope this inspires me ;)
yeah, i know, the images i uploaded a while ago were done roughly 6 months ago, from my previous job. i'm cheating myself a bit here. i promised myself that i'd avoid posting old artworks.

but, damn, my page has been looking desolate since my last upload, which was more than a month ago.

can't really post my more recent works 'cause the games i'm working on aren't out in the market yet. i'll upload them once that clears up.

and i'm swamped with work as it is.


oh well. :)
Ahh... my first day at the new job. things look promising. i'll have a wacom graphire 3 along with a nifty desktop PC within the week. WACOM GRAPHIRE 3 is a sweet sweet deal. :)

i'll try and upload some of the new stuff i've been working on sometime soon so for all you people waiting for my stuff to grace DA (if there ARE any of you out there), sit tight. it won't be long now ;)
i've been swamped with work lately so i haven't been able to post any new images.

but in spite of that, and due to a sudden burst of inspiration last night, i drew! i drew until the wee hours of the morning!

and when i got here in the office just this morning to upload that drawing, i find out that i can't because THE DAMN FILE IS TRUNCATED. Biyatch.

i'll just upload it next week when i get a file that's NOT truncated. or within the weekend when i fix my home internet connection.
hooray! i'm now a member of deviantart!

i've been browsing this site for a time now and i've always wanted to join. but the busy schedule and occassional bouts of 'uninspiration' get in the way.

now that i've adjusted to work, my schedule's freeing up a bit so, not only am i able to draw, i'm also able to upload my drawings. wheeeee!

oops, gotta get back to work...
