Re: Creativity Hour works thread

So what I did today was translate a short story I wrote earlier this week, and which got published on a local newspaper. It's called Father's Pride.

Re: Creativity Hour works thread

Lest I forget, I won't be available this weekend to chat, as well as the associated activities (rewatch, creativity, etc.), as I'll be travelling with my family. I'll try to get some creative work done there to show later, but can't make promises. I'll make sure to hop over here to check what you gu...

Re: Creativity Hour works thread

Before I forget, my contribution for yesterday was a preliminary mix of one of the songs my band recorded last month. It was written by our guitarist, and arranged by the whole band. Pará I was really delighted to read your comments and impressions of the song, because originally the song was writte...

My favourite drummer has passed away

Neil Peart, of Rush, dead at 67 I barely have energy to write this, and I think most of you might be aware that I'm a Rush fan. I can't overstate how important and influential these guys have been to me since my teens. I'm gutted and devastated by this. I mean, over time, I've come to hear lots of ...

Oh, yes, I definitely want to try that. I haven't seen pisco around here, though, sadly.

Re: Game Reviews

So the Celeste chapter 9 run is happening right now on AGDQ and, god, even just watching this run is unpleasant. It looks so messy, so polluted, so ugly. You can feel the tryhardism all over the place. Even the music is a letdown in this. tl;dr: Celeste is still one of my favourite games ever, all e...

Re: Chris can't draw part II: ENDGAME

I really like those! Your rendition of Groening faces is very convincing and confident, and you gave them very distinct looks and expressions. Would really like to see that coloured! Jokers pic is very impressive. You chose a challenging angle and pose for them, which alone deserves respect. I see a...

Re: Creativity Hour works thread

Thank you for reading and commenting my story, Chris! I admit it was fun to write this story and treat the OC as the butt of the joke (I know I addressed this in chat already, but I figured that ponies would think of "self-insert" and "OC" as the same thing because the good OCs aren't a threat, so t...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I've got my fair share of slaps to the face last year (and in all years prior to that), yet I'm here offering support, strength and positivity to my friends; not because I'm a superhero or a martyr, but that's what a friend does. If anything, I'm willing to show the slap marks on my face as a sign o...

Re: Chris can't draw part II: ENDGAME

Haha, those are brilliant! I'm impressed with how well you translated his look into this pixelated style, and how good his face looks. I particularly love the bottom row.

You should make an animated GIF out of that!

Re: Creativity Hour works thread

Thank you for the kind comments, guys! I was surprised I could write and record this on such short notice, mostly because it's hard for me to write lyrics on the spot. The piano parts sound like the kind of stuff I often improvise, but it was nice to write something out of them. The full lyrics are ...

Re: Creativity Hour works thread

Bale Joker is brilliant. Appropriately creepy and menacing, with great work on the expression, his hand and the axe. The sprites are a thing of beauty. I can't get enough of how clever CBG as Eggman is, and Nelson is amazing. Bart as Princess Peach looks really difficult to pull off, but you did it ...

Re: Merry Christmas!

That sounds positively lovely! Novels and restaurants can't be a bad thing, and I'm sure you enjoyed it. I got creative this year and gave my nephews a book each (from youngest to eldest, The Chronicles of Narnia , War of the Worlds and Good Omens ). They're good readers, and I'm trying to keep that...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Hope you've had a very, very merry Christmas, Chris! And here's to a great 2020 as well.

Always a joy to see you! [and I got a little bit emotional here]
