ze bat and some media

While THE DARK KNIGHT is breaking records in the US, its still a month away from starting in my little part of Europe.
Excitement got me still and so i drew a version of Gotham's first millionaire!


ON MEDIA:
- watched DIARY OF THE DEAD and it was awful.
How awful? SO FUCKING AWFUL! I have a hard time really seeing this a an Romero movie.. it felt more as if his 16 year old son and his best friend made something while he was asleep on a porch.
Yes, i understand that some people might say its a very clever film because it makes you believe that its cheesy and stupid (and that this is meant as a commentary on our entertainment and information industry) but screw that.
Even commentary needs to be entertaining and well made!

- continuing with this trend in watching crap, i saw JUMPER!
Its Anakin doing some dimension jumping, making bored faces and he is joined by a pretty girl, Billy Elliot and Mace Windu.
I once wanted to read the book this pile of shit was based on, but not anymore.

- something great to end this post:


The KORG Ds 10 has arrived in my home and its everything i wanted and feared it to be.
Its very complex and has a steep learning curve but is also a full fledged synthesizer for a very small prize.

Highly recommend for anyone wanting to try out some electronic music making.

hi,
just wanted to say THANK YOU to the nice people commenting..

i now have a myspace page! So if you want to see my stupid grin OR want to add me as a friend:
DO IT!

On to some drawings!



This one was drawn in a tiny tiny moleskine (one with the soft cover) while waiting for an
eye examination (my eyesight did not get worse).


and this was made while sitting in front of an aquarium.
a morey is checking out a shark thats driving by.

i like open canvas

I really do, sketching with the normal pencil brush feels great and i´ve yet to find something similar in photoshop.
I case you want to try it for yourself, version 1.1 is free and downloadable!




On other subjects:
- E3 is over and one of the more interesting things for me were the character design changes in Left 4 Dead.
I liked the old ones and i wonder why they changed them. The new ones look "fresher" and not as "real". The also look as if the outbreak just happend 3min ago.
Oh well.. it is still the most exiting new game this year and ultimately my main reason to invest in a new PC.
The E3 presentation follows:

back for good

Had this idea while working today:

After this weird last relationship, i´m back in the arms
of old friends and loved ones


EDIT:
i´m an idiot, it should read NSFW and not NSWF.
I was NOT talking about
Naval Special Warfare Foundation or the
Nova Scotia Wildlife Federation (Canada)

office views




some notes:

- IN BRUGES has an OK story with good actors and a great soundtrack

- GOTHAM KNIGHT contains six storys nearly all of them are bad and the animation looks rushed. I still hate the fact that the japanese Animation studios are not able to blend 3d backgrounds with their 2d character work. It always looks weird and cheap.

- Thanks to the internet hype machine, i´ve reinstalled Diablo 2 and Quake 3.
I can´t wait for Quake Live or Diablo 3 (and i´m thankfull that QLive will be out in a shorter amount of time).
Slowly relearning all the maps and the timing of the red amor is fun!

8bit Killer and Dimitri


A quote from Scott Sharkey sells this the best:

A really simple Wolfenstein 3D clone probably wouldn't be worth getting fired over. 8bit Killer, however, is a lovingly polished game that makes subtle visual and aural homage to just about every game in the NES pantheon. It's a completely original production, free of tacky sprite rips or other easy shots at nostalgia. Instead, the game makes strong artistic and musical hints at everything from Contra to Bionic Commando while remaining something completely different.

sketches and james jean

Some sketches with bad anatomy:



AAAAAAAND:
James Jean posted something cool to download on his blog

"I've uploaded the files I gave away at ICON5 on Rapidshare. It includes all the files I used to create Fables 76 as well as files for the creation of the back cover to Process Recess vol. 2. I've also included the outline from my workshop, which includes notes on how to isolate line work and create controllable halftone dots in Photoshop. It's abbreviated, but the point is to use this as a springboard for experimentation. The files are low-res only, but the layer structure should be clear."

HOWDY and the UFC

Drawn while watching episodes from the 1, 4 and 5 season of THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER
Never thought that i would like the UFC one day but.. now i´m into it!
MMA is much more interesting than Boxing at the moment.
Most of this could be because of this AWESOME book:

Don't be put off by the cover.
The author (shown being covered in blood) is a pretty normal guy that is interested in finding out more about the world of fighting and the cool thing is that he is ready to step into the ring too.
Its partly filled with his experience training different fighting styles and partly written as a kind of "why do people fight?" "why do we watch people get hurt?" subject book.
Its also full of links and quotes from other books and i cant wait to read some of them too.
But lets let the writer speak for himself

bah

I have NO concentration for anything at the moment, so i doodle.
( i could not decide whether to post this with or without the greys, so i glued them together)
