Liquid Kryptonite is my personal blog where I showcase my work in progress and my gallery, with some submissions exclusive to the site. Follow the link to navigate to the blog.
Taking the opportunity to practice with the Cintiq's available at my Art Institute campus, using a pre-existing art for practice. Having some conflicts regarding the backgrounds.

"The internet is written in ink."
Astute observation, Mister Sorkin. I don't know about the rest of the internet users, but change can be a good thing, sometimes. Often, it's necessary, especially when you want to make a fresh start. We change through a lot as we grow older, tastes in food, clothing, music, movies, etc. Why can't our usernames be given the same option?
Don't get me wrong, I still Final Fantasy VII to death, and it's a game I still love to play from time to time, but I think my handle "OmnislashMaster" doesn't work for an internet alias anymore. Yet many sites prevent a username change. DevART forces you to upgrade to Premium in order to change. Hell, Google doesn't allow you to create alias accounts that share a parent email address.
Now, to be fair, I have no idea if incorporating the option to change a username has a profound affect on a site's resources, so there may very well be a reason why many sites refrain from allowing users to change their internet handle. Even so, why not limit username changes once every two months or something?
Just in case you've been in the dark, or not on Twitter: TOONAMI IS BACK!
And it's a real blessing, too. Perhaps it's nostalgia talking, but Toonami was not only the highlight of many an afternoon for a grade schooler in the 90's (damn, just mentioning the 90's already makes me feel old), but also introduced to me the clusterfuck of awesomeness - and often obscure - genre that is anime, a breath of fresh air that was a farcry from the family-friendly antics that usually was spewed from Western animation at the time. Well, it wasn't all bad I suppose. I mean, I did grow up along with some of the best animated shows to hit airwaves with Animaniacs, Batman, etc.
Anywho, since my induction to the genre, I always held anime as a standard that animation shouldn't only be a marketing tool to draw a younger or general audience to fill theater seats. And while I am not straight up suggesting we need more adult-for-the-hell-of-it material like Heavy Metal, I still await the day that western animation will finally have it's landmark mature animation - in the vein of Akira or Ghost in the Shell - and see western animation climb to a new potential.
But, that is a train that won't pull in for a long while. At the very least, I think programs like Toonami are desperately needed, and much appreciated. Now let's see how they can keep this going. With enough fan dedication, and a little luck, it can be something golden again.
If you're on Google within the next day, type "zerg rush" in the search. Trust me, it's pretty badass.
...but I never, never, never understood the appeal of the new My Little Pony show, at least with the surprisingly large fanbase outside the show's intended demographic - the "Bronie Phenomenon", as I call it.
Yet somehow, in CollegeHumor's newest animated sketch, I cannot help but affirm to the many things that I personally see from this specific fraction of MLP fans. [link]
As with anything with a large following, I'm sure what is shown in the sketch can be applied there, as well. There are exploited stereotypes, then there are the cases where the truth is just as scary as you may hear.
In a way, I'm kinda glad I never fell that deep into any fandom. Kinda... Don't get me talking about Gurren Lagann. Or Final Fantasy VII.
Meh. It's alright I guess. I mean, I don't think it's necessarily terrible. Then again, I'm usually too impartial to care. So, I guess take that for what it's worth. Perhaps as time goes on I could find a more valid and informed opinion on the matter. Until then, business (or lack of) as usual.
Seriously, when was the last time this guy did science fiction?
Not since Blade Runner. Damn...
Anyways, if you've been living under a rock or have no clue what Prometheus is, it's Ridley Scott's next film coming out next year, and his return to the science fiction genre. From the interviews and whatever tidbits being floated about the internet, it seems to tease itself as a prequel to the first Alien film and the creation of the xenomorphs. And if it ends up being so, this could possibly be the first good Alien movie in a while, although I'm mostly going on speculation here, mainly because I avoided Alien 3 and Resurrection because of the criticisms I've heard about them.
Anywho, if you haven't seen the trailer yet, you should. Whether it's a true Alien prequel or not, it looks pretty epic.
Been thinking and I'm kinda jaded about the whole Christmas thing now I'm a cynical young man. I don't blame the commercialized aspect of the holiday, but I can relate feeling seeing money from a paycheck being bled dry for presents. And it doesn't help that every year brings yet ANOTHER rendition of Jingle Bells and every other carol under the sun. And the Salvation Army continues to ring those bells outside Wal-Mart. Fine, here's my pocket change. Now can you shut it for 5 minutes? Yeah, I'm a Scrooge. Bah-humbug. Bite me.
So, from the bottom of my Grinch heart, I hope everybody's holidays are more eventful and enjoyable than mine probably will be.
Anyways, Happy Holidays.
See you next year.
If it's not one thing, it's another it seems. Technology just seems to hate me.
What's the beef, you might be asking? Faulty laptop screen. A slight problem that was once easily fixed by taping the screen at a certain point has now escalated into a problem that won't seem to fix itself, regardless of effort and what little (to none) technical repair skills I possess.
Not dead. But not going to be updating too much stuff for the time being until I can figure something out.
Balls. Big hairy monkey nads, I tell you!
Long time, no see, Newgrounds!
Ahh...December. And with Christmas (or whatever holidays you celebrate) around the corner, there is much cheer to be had. Or at least some nog to get drunk off.
Well, I am excited about my holiday plans. Get to fly out to California to visit friends, and see not only the midnight premiere of Tron Legacy (which I am SOOOO stoked for), but get to see Conan O'Brian live in studio. SQUEEEEE!!
The rest of the holiday will be spent with family, which may not be as kickass as Tron or CoCo, but I think it'll be wonderful, nevertheless. School will be over from the 14th (for me at least) until January 10th of 2011, so I am excited to have some free time and hope to have more material in the gallery for once.
So, any exciting or special holiday plans for you guys?
