Last week’s round-up went missing, but it’s not going to be too lengthy as things have been a little quiet. (Illness in the Adams household this week, as well as a lot of other distractions.) Still, there are updates anyway.
In Fiction, the second chapter of Balancing the Books hit the blog. The third was also supposed to arrive but I forgot to schedule it. (Oops.) It will now be arriving some time in the week, with the ebook still preparing to launch in time for Halloween.
The Youtube Channel continues as always, I finally got to the end of Outlast and am incredibly pleased I never have to play it again, Minecraft carries along as always, and we began a new project, Trine. Check out my vertigo inducing attempt to build a giant statue in Minecraft:
And Lastly, It has been a quiet fortnight but there’s a lot on the horizon. I’ve recently been digging in to Lego Dimensions, which will definitely be making an appearance on my Youtube channel, but I’ve been considering reviving the old Lego Blog and reviewing the more physical aspects of the game on there too. Early days yet, but I’ll keep you posted.
#Drawlloween continues, I’ve been posting the pictures to the blog pretty regularly, but I’ve also moved away from posting here each and every day. I’m trying to keep stuff like that more to twitter for now. Here’s yesterday’s drawing, the subject was “Alien.”
This week’s Those Aren’t Biscuits is now live, this week we talked about our favourite music, corny 80s cartoons, and I demonstrated my lovely singing voice. Check it out here.
And last but not least, my Youtube channel is doing really well right now. It’s growing faster than ever, and you can head there to see me Let’s Play vids of games like Minecraft, Dead Rising, Outlast (if you’re brave.) Or, if you fancy something a little more bitesize, check out this wonderful moment where fellow Biscuits- Host Jon and I finally took down the AT-ATs in the Star Wars Battlefront Beta. It was a beautiful moment.
As you know, I’ve been getting back into art lately. Part of that has been relearning to use a wacom tablet and finally teaching myself some decent graphics software. As part of that, I’ve been producing a weekly webcomic for the last five weeks now. I’ve mostly kept it on the quiet because it has been quite a learning experience, but the next few weeks of comics scheduled have been work I’m really happy with so it’s time to start sharing it around. The comic is available here, and updates Saturdays. Read on for a bit of a taster.
Timeshare is about a guy whose roommate is a time traveller. At the moment it’s a simple self contained gag-strip but I’ve got a few cool ideas for running storylines.
The art is a little clunky in these early strips, but by around strip 9 or 10 (already drawn and queued up) I start to settle in a little more and get comfortable with the characters.
Feel free to leave me any feedback, I’d love to know how you think I could improve. Thanks
