Re: Creativity Hour works thread

I love the Bateman sprite and want to see it finished, Chris. A great start, for sure.
Those drawings are top notch, May, very stylish and diverse, and the way you combined them makes for a really pleasant pic to look at. It's a lot more than just a bunch of loose drawings.

Re: Creativity Hour works thread

So, on the next two weekends, I won't be around to join our usual chat activities. I'll still be around the forum and able to play the RPG, but I can't guarantee I'll be creating. I'll try, though!

If I were the last person on Earth, I'd go off and find some morphine instead. :D That's a brilliant way of putting it! ;D I guess one of the issues here is that both ends of this spectrum often get glorified.

The need for approval and its pitfalls... and benefits?

I, as a person, have a dire need for approval. It affects a lot of areas of my life, and has affected me for a long time before I managed to realise it; and, as you can guess, it kinda sucks. Because I keep doubting myself and being afraid of not being good enough in the eyes of others (worsened by ...

Re: Lump

I just never know what to say whenever I see your pictures. They're just so high quality and beautiful. Suffice to say, I've been enjoying them quite a lot, even not knowing the source material.

Re: Creativity Hour works thread

I'm really humbled by your review, Chris. You highlighted some of the points that for me were crucial to the story, especially of giving both characters dignity. For me, the whole story hinged on that. The ending is one of the only things that were fixed right from the start, and every time I ponder...

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 ...

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...
