Captain Character

Hi everyone,

Here's a character from a series of images I've been working on. She's the Captain, and I loves her. ^^ photo captain2_zpsade4dd5f.png

Radha Mitchell

Here's a study of actress Rhada Mitchell, I'm trying to draw a lot in grayscale because I'm still at a stage where I'm learning how to use my tints and tones properly without worrying about the colour all the time. Rhada is such a beautiful lady, had to be done ^_^'.

Games of the year 2013 - BIOSHOCK INFINITE & TOMB RAIDER

I have been in gaming heaven these past two months, playing and being completely captivated by two of what I believe to be games of the year (and YES, THEY DESERVE CAPITOL LETTERS)!!

I literally just completed Bioshock Infinite, and OMG it was so amazing. To be fair it was a very slow start, and I was even beginning to lose faith in the series, but I soldiered on and then things got really interesting!

I only played Bioshock 1 & 2 through to the end fairly recently because the first time I played Bioshock I found it so scary that I couldn't bear to play it. ^_^' Yes I am a wimp, but it was the part where the lights go out and you see a flash of somebody running across the screen that did it. However, after being encouraged by friends (massive fans of Bioshock) to play it I decided to soldier through the freaky bits at the beginning and then I didn't find it so scary ^_^

I think that now I have completed Bioshock Infinite I find it to be as good as the other two games; I love the characters, the baddies, the over design of the game; the story is as always captivating and intriguing and the gameplay is out of this world. All I can say is, if you haven't played any Bioshock games before I strongly recommend playing them, XD!

Here are some of my terrible screenshots ^_^ *no spoilers*

There's a friggin band that sing at a funfair at the beginning! ^_^

Here's a random feast table with a crow doing its business on it lol


I also just recently completed the new Tomb Raider game. I'm such a geek I bought the collector's edition where you get all these neat little things like a concept art book and an awesome figurine of Lara that stands on my desk ^^ Again, such a great game, stunning visuals, an intriguing storyline, and badass weapons (I loved taking out the bad guys silently using a bow and arrow!) I love Tomb Raider so much anyway, I actually wrote my dissertation about her. ^_^ Man it would have been interesting to have written it after this game where Lara croft has evolved even further as a character.

And look at this glitch that I came across in the game, this bow was literally floating in mid-air! lol

Just waiting patiently for GTAV now!

New Job ^_^

Ok, so lots of things have happened since my last blog post!!

My last job sort of withered away ;_; which meant that I had to get a crappy part-time job as a pizza waitress for a few months. And I had to move back in my my parents for a little while, which sucked!

Luckily I managed to bag myself a new job as an Illustrator soon after!  It's really cool ^_^ everybody's really nice and I'm constantly being pushed out of my comfort zone so I feel as if I'm getting better and better every day! I'm basically an Illustrator in an office, but mainly working on game projects, so it's super fun and basically exactly the kind of job I want! Hopefully I'll pass my review ^_^'

Anyway, I've been enjoying the fruits of my labours a little too much lately, haven't really been studying as much as I should be, so I'm getting back onto the band wagon now! Wish me luck!
:)
