What if these games were old books?



You possibly already saw these drawings around the web, their creator is Ástor Alexandre. You can check more of his workd clicking here or you can buy things with his creations here.

It is funny how this idea if of re-imagine the universe makes sense in games, since, in a certain way, that is what happens whenever a new game of a series is launch, specially when it is launched for the first time in a new console.

In these attempts of drawing things and somehow get some attention it is a little bothering to notice how any fa art always get more attention than something original. Even with my own drawings, those with some reference to something that is already known are the ones with more views, likes, shares and so on.

So, the lesson to be learned (what?!?) is that if wanna get some attention, being it by drawing or even writing, consider doing some fan art along with your original work.

Give your score to me!


Democratic Republic of Mr Godzilla, a cool t-shirt design



Cat Words of Wisdom, a cool t-shirt design

These two images above are creations of mine and they are up for scoring at Threadless until 17th March! Oh yeah! (I tould'ya that one day I would go beyond post it notes!)

If you think it is worth, please give me your scores! The best the scores, the greater the chance of they picking it up for selling on the website.

All you have to do is to click on the score you think is fair, login with you facebook account, if you don't have a Threadless account and that is it.

However, if you prefer, you can go directly to their website and give your scores there, clicking here to the one of Mr. Godzilla or here to the one with the cat. It works the same way.

And, if I'm not asking too much, if think it is just and good, share the the links in your timeline, send it to your friends, to your family, to your contacts in the Russian mafia, do what you want! I will be greatly grateful!

And, since we are here, just for fun, perhaps it would be interesting to talk about the idea behind each design. (Yeah, sure, why not?)

The Mr. Godzilla design is part of some ideas that I have to countries that do not exist. I have other unfinished designs with flamingos, pinguins, coffee and other things. A nice detail, that may be missed, is the text in Mr. Zilla balloon, it is pixelated, like showing that his voice is not smooth, like a normal font would represent, it is a primitive voice, or something like that.

About the cat words of wisdom, it was created based in a photograph of one of my cats when she was a few months old. This cat is a little different, she has a "the alternative artist of the house" vibe, you know? She has this contemplative look and I thought it matched with some saying that are like these secrets of wisdom, in this case something that make cats happier than humans. They sleep more and they hit things with their paws. It is a good advice, no?... Another saying that I considered using was "it is completely normal to hate someone you never met", but I decided not to use it, because the world is already filled with messages of hate.

I also wanna say that this is just the beginning, that I will send more designs soon and I will certainly ask again for your help.

Earlier this year, I wrote here things about future projects, about drawing and things related to that. I already wrote here many times about that old story of trying to do things for yourself, to find out a way to make money doing something you truly believe, to open other possibilities of living and doing things to make the world a less f*cked up place. I don't know if the designs will end up being sold on the website, I hope they do, but apart of that, it is good to see that the wheels are spinning, that this things is being done and others are on the way. It is time!

POWER/RANGERS fan film

Despite the "production value", the video below is not official and if you follow the internets and are in some way "a fan of Power Rangers" (yeah, you know what I mean), you probably already watched it. But, if not, go ahead. Have fun.



It is not the most amazing thing you may have seen, but it is fun, right?

And it is always interesting to see how people grow up and take with them things they used to like when they were younger, but to justify still sticking to it they try to adapt it to the person they are at the moment. In other words, 40 years in the future, we may have a senior version of Power Rangers. For sure, just wait for it.

How a anime is animated

I found this video walking on Youtube, it shows the making of the animation to a Naruto movie released in 2007. It is quite interesting to see each step of the process to the final result and specially to realize that even today much of the work demands lots of hand work (or, at least, it demanded back then).

Is Link's Quest in Majora's Mask Pointless?



The video above is from YouTube's channel The Game Theorists. They have many great videos, like this one, always with this idea of getting game concepts and analyzing then in a scientific manner to reach conclusions and theories (or Game Theories!).

It may look silly, a kind of stupidity, filled with dementia and according to some "a waste of time, dude", but, no, it is not that. You see, every video analyses some issue not only with scientific concepts but with scientific thinking, mixing up fields of science, searching information from Math, from Mhysics, Psychology, Biology and any other that may be necessary,

The value of something like this, specially this days when most people are conditioned to limit themselves to only speak about what some piece of paper tell then they are able to speak about, is huge.

I liked the video so much that I'm watching all of their videos and I will definitely post more here soon. Very soon. And just a little curiosity, this was the first because I'm unashamedly using the hype around the launch of the Majora's Mask remake to 3DS, but let's just pretend I never told you this. Yes.

Point-Click-Adventure-Shoot-'em-Up: Starr Mazer

It is in its last days in Kickstarter the game from the video below, take a look.



They are close to their goal, so if it interested you in some way click here and let's help make it happen.

And since the quality of indie games is very-much-a-lot-always linked to who the people on the project are, you may like to watch a interview with one of the minds responsible for the game clicking here.

Speed UNdrawing!

There at my drawings website I do speed drawing videos and this one below will only be published in March 13, however, since this one is done, since it is already in Youtube and since it is different, I thought it would be worth to publish it here before and apart of that post I do with everything, after each 40 new drawings (like this one)

This is a speed undrawing, it is just like the others but in the end the drawing is unmade (?!). The result is a little surreal, but I think I liked it. What do you think?
