Hey Josh, Time For the Bonus Stage!

alpha-beta-gamer:

The Last Phoenix is a beautiful aerial combat adventure game where you control the last remaining Fire-bird who awakens to find the world rotting away. With the once vibrant world covered in ash and frost, you must master your abilities and fight against the decay, restoring the balance between life and death.

Exploring the world of The Last Phoenix is a joy, it really is a ridiculously beautiful place, a wonderfully crafted, vast decaying cityscape full of mystery.  As the phoenix flies through the environment, frost and ash are cleared away and vegetation regrows in real time, purifying the land permanently.   It features a Metroidvania style of exploration and discovery, and aerial combat against carrion and crows, with a variety of fire and light based attacks at your disposal.

Due for release on Steam this Fall, The Last Phoenix is well worth keeping an eye on (or both of them even).  It’s a visually stunning experience that will make your eyes extremely happy.

Redid a post by fucktonofanatomyreferencesreborn with sources because they never source anything and I don’t want to reblog that post because I don’t want to support blogs who don’t give credit to people

(No, stating that the art is ~not yours~ and ~came from elsewhere~ IS NOT PROPER CREDIT. Many of these have usernames and such on them but not every single one and you still ought to link back to the specific piece)

I couldn’t source the last one so I didn’t include it.

Great for the sci-fi writer or artist who wants to get into the mood, or just to be inspired. Also great for just being a big dork and pretend you’re on a spaceship.

This is great :D
Some of these would make wonderful soothing background noise loops. Who needs a burbling brook or gentle rain now?
I opened Enterprise-D’s bridge, cargo bay, and quarters all at once on different tabs simultaneously. Mmmm

About a year ago I got some sketches from Eike, and I told him I wanted to line and colour it and such sometime. And so, I took forever to get around to it, but I did! Tried shading and such a bit here too. I think it looks nice.
So yeah, original sketch belongs to Eike-butt, wasn’t mine! I did everything else.

OH MY GOSH YOU FINISHED IT XD  This takes me back ^^ I’m really glad to see the finished piece and its cool seeing all the shading and stuff done to it ^^

Okay a window has been opnened for me here.

These brushes are super nice, first off, but I HAD NO IDEA YOU COULD WORK TOOL PRESETS THIS WAY.

I thought the presets ended at the brush settings but it turns out you can control every aspect of the tool, such as opacity, flow, etc.

Oh my god how did I not realize this earlier. This is going to speed up my workflow so much when shifting between shading, lineart, coloring, etc.

Plus these brushes man. Holy shit. I feel like a kid in a candy shop.

I know this is an OOC post, but this is important enough to make here. And no, the blog is not ending.

Over two years ago, May 2nd, 2012, was one of the worst days of my life. I was fired from my radio news reporter job. I made an OOC post about it, and it exploded across…

Dan Fessler’s HD Index Painting Technique let’s you paint pixel art in Photoshop in a non-destructive manner, and lets you use pretty much every tool in a perfectly pixel-gradient fashion!

The article gives you everything you need to try it out for yourself.It’s easy to set up and use, and the results are so fucking cool.
