More Weather Mayhem

thumbnail_20180117_115554The weather this winter has been completely bananas and I’m not just saying that because I detest the cold. Irish winters are well-known for being cold, very wet, depressing and occasionally a little frosty. But this winter, things have taken a bit of an unusual Arctic turn.

For the second time this winter, we’ve been hit with heavy snow (which is really rare). This time it’s a hell of a lot worse, because it snowed non-stop for 2 days and everything’s been completely buried. However, as disruptive as snow might be, I find it just fascinating. So, I thought I might as well bring you all along, on another snow adventure.

thumbnail_20180117_113552

In this venture out in the snow, I discovered some really weird tracks and decide to follow them. (Warning: It’s best not to follow weird tracks, if you live somewhere were the wildlife can eat you or somewhere with a lot of crime. It most likely won’t end well and you might even experience a slight case of death, from doing so).

thumbnail_20180117_112833

After quite a bit of tracking and stumbling through the snow (Yeah, I fell over a lot, on this adventure. It isn’t as easy to get back up, when you’re in couple feet of snow), I came across this rather strange sight, at the end of the tracks.

thumbnail_20180117_113110

It’s a headless snowman. I checked around the snowman in case the head just fell off, but there’s no sign of it or even a mess that uses to be the head. Honestly, I find this more funny than creepy, because when you think about it, someone must have spent quite a bit of time and effort, rolling a ball of snow around to make the body. But then must have, gotten fed up (or/and too cold) and decided to give their snowman arms, before calling it a day. I guess, they just couldn’t leave their headless snowman without giving him arms, first.

Poor critters hands were probably too cold and stinging, to finish of their snowman. But all in all, you can’t help but be impressed by the size of the headless snowman’s body.

Devilish Things We’ve All Tried in Videogames

thumbnail_892645c3-a397-4931-b2c0-472eb954c4c0You don’t have to be hugely into videogames to know that there are just some games, that are a lot more fun when played badly. By this, I mean not playing the game properly and completely messing about. Whether it be that you’re bored and arsing around is more amusing, than the actual game or whether you just want to test the limits of the game. I think we can all agree, that videogame devilment can be a hell of a lot of fun. (The King of Cheese has returned)

Before I get stuck into that, I’d like to point out that this post was originally, going to be about the evil things we all do in videogames. But that list quickly became really disturbing and sounded very much like videogame sadism. So, I had to downgrade to devilment (really didn’t fancy getting kick off WordPress, for describing the twisted things that can be done in videogame. Even though we’ve all done them). However, videogame devilment is just as funny, so without further delay, I give to you.

The Devilish Things We Have All Done in Videogames

1-Using Your Teammates for Target Practice:
We’ve all been on incredibly boring missions or gotten a little curious and decided to test out weapons on your computerised teammates. Most of the time, this has absolutely no effect on your oblivious non-reactive teammates. But if you’re lucky, sometimes the game turns against you and fights back. Making that boring mission, a hell of a lot more interesting.

thumbnail_82616da9-b71c-4fe7-aabd-e5b46c9d1dc32-Horribly Mistreating Sims:
I think it’s safe to say, that anyone who has ever played Sims has done this. From trapping sims in rooms and starving them, to not letting the sims out of the pool. We’ve all been a little cruel to the sims and probably in more creative ways than I described. But in everyone’s defence, the game makes it hard not to mistreat the sims, even just a little and almost encourages at times. Like don’t create a giant sim eating cow-plant in your game, if you don’t want me to feed a sim or 2 to it every so often.

3-Driving on The Sidewalk:
Because why drive responsibly in a videogame, when driving like a maniac and chasing pedestrians is so much better. Best not to drive like that in real life, though. It’d probably end in a very painful death.

4-Being the World’s Worse Bodyguard:
I’m yet to meet someone who actually likes escort missions. They are beyond frustrating, especially when the person your meant to guard, is basically walking into bullets and seems to have some sort of dead wish. So, like the patient and caring gamers we are, we do whatever it takes to end the misery that is an escort mission. Even if that involves running off and leaving the lamb to the wolves or taking care of them ourselves.

thumbnail_11cb09f2-6901-4aae-a6ba-1c1b44ced4825-Throwing Livestock:
This one is more to do with a Nintendo game, that involves farming and a very annoying mayor. So, annoying in fact, that you’ve probably thrown a chicken or 2 at him in disgust, of his pushy passive aggressive manner. Scary thing is the chicken actually like it and displays a little love heart above its head every time you throw it. If that isn’t encouragement to throw Nintendo chickens, I don’t know what is.

6-Playing with The Less Experienced Players:
It can be very tempting to help a new player, greatly increase their death toll. However, as tempting as that is, there is something more entertaining that we’ve all done to less experienced players. Which is shooting in their direction without aiming, just to watch them get all excited and flap madly about, as they try to grasp the game’s controls. (Wow, that one is also sort of cruel as well as devilish)

7-Death from Above: 
Jumping into another player from high up, is probably a dirty move. But we’ve all at least tried it once, if only to see if it actually works. (I know I’ve tried it a few times in Call of Duty. Could never ace the landing, though.)

thumbnail_952b4443-5b0e-41b8-bce2-b6b0523090b78-Teasing Zombies:
Fighting off Zombies is a lot of fun, but some times teasing the zombies can be more entertaining, than killing them. From starting a massive game of zombie tag, to taunting zombies and laughing your little socks off at the state of a zombie trying to run. Teasing videogame zombies can be incredibly fun and provide you with a lot of laughs.

9-Extreme Overkill:
Sometimes, you just have to throw a grenade at that weak ass monster. You could have probably destroyed it with a punch, but that wouldn’t be as satisfying. Sometimes, if haven’t caused several computerised fires or explosions, we’re just not playing the game hard enough.

10- Playing Dead:
Probably one of the more devilish things you can do when playing a first-person shooter videogame, against other players. Although most wouldn’t admit it, there has been times were we’ve all suddenly laid down and stop moving, to trick the other player into thinking you’ve died. Whether it be that you don’t want to add yet another death to your tally or as a dirty tactic, to take the other player by surprise. It’s incredibly devilish and annoys the hell out of other players, but we’ve all done it anyway.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this list. I haven’t done a random list post in a while, so this post might seem a bit out of the blue to newer readers. But it’s just one the things to expect from this blog (as well as art and reviews). These lists are just something to give everyone a bit of a giggle and challenge my drawing skills a bit more.

Thanks for reading and if you ever want to see me make a post like this about something in particular. Leave it in the comments below and I’ll try my best to make that post happen.

The Great Gatsby

thumbnail_7e6362e9-ffd8-4438-85f6-d1c02ea56c15Have you ever watched a movie so unusual and captivating, that you really don’t know where to start in explaining it? Well, that’s exactly how I feel about The Great Gatsby. But before the irony in that statement kills us all, let me give you a little taste of the insane tale, that is The Great Gatsby.

Set in the 1920’s, The Great Gatsby begins with an aspiring writer (Nick) moving to New York, across the bay from his extremely wealthy cousin, Daisy. This leads to Nick being sucked into the world of the super-rich, where you party all the time and cheating on your significant other is only unacceptable if you get caught (Wow, this movie really makes New York in the 20’s, look wild and unruly).

Nick’s new next-door neighbour is a mysterious millionaire, that no one seems to know anything about. Except, for a bunch of wild rumours and that he throws the best parties. Soon after moving in, Nick is personally invited to one of Gatsby’s parties. Something that has never happened to anyone before (apparently Gatsby’s parties are just one big gate-crashing event). This eventually leads to Nick discovering who the mysterious Gatsby is and from here, the real mystery begins.

I really can’t say much more about the plot of this film, without completely spoiling it. But what I will say, is that it certainly kept me guessing. From who Gatsby was and how he made his millions, to how the story would end. I was constantly guessing and re-guessing. It was by far one of the best stories I’ve experienced in a while. The plot twists and delivery were just excellent and I really can’t find much wrong with The Great Gatsby.

thumbnail_3c8a774d-6393-4204-a024-2694c8aeea0aAnother very impressive factor in this film is its backgrounds and scenes. They are just so attention grabbing and so well done, making The Great Gatsby a real feast for the eyes. Especially, when the backgrounds are used to reflect the characters thoughts and emotions. Which also added a really nice feel to the movie, that completely sucks you in and has you very much amazed.

My only criticisms of this film, is that it’s a little slow and slightly boring at the start. However, once the film finally gets going, it turns out to be very exciting and enjoyable. Also, although I thoroughly enjoyed this films unique and quirky style, I don’t think it would be to everyone’s taste and some may find it a little too much and a little too strange for their liking.

Overall, The Great Gatsby was an amazing film and the best film I’ve seen in a while. From its endless plot twists and the mystery that is its storyline, to its dazzling and breathtaking scenes, I loved every bit of it. This film may be a slow starter, but from the second you lay eyes on the Great Jay Gatsby, this movie will hold you captive until the very end (in a good way though. Not in a scary hostage situation way). For this reason, I would highly recommend watching The Great Gatsby. It would make a great addition to any movie night.

Rating: 5/5

Hope you like my new shorter style of review. I plan on trying this style out for a while, as it should allow me to post more regularly. Reviews will still be the same quality, but just more compact and to the point and of course, I’ll still include some digital art.

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy this new style

Something Special for The First Post of The Year.

It’s crazy to think this is the first post of 2018, so let’s start the year of with something special. But first let me introduce you to my new brushes.

thumbnail_20180101_170949These are by far the softest paint brushes, I’ve ever felt (they actually feel like silk. It’s amazing). I have big plans for these brushes, so prepare for something spectacular in the near future. (Just have to learn how to draw and paint first. Maybe prepare for to see something spectacular the far near future).

thumbnail_20171208_171159Right, back to that something special. I drew this quite a while ago (back in August, I think) and never really had any desire to add colour. That was until, I got those new brushes and really wanted to try them out on something.
By the way, recognise anyone in the drawing? If you don’t. Not to worry, I posted the Without a Bubble series months ago and it’s very hard to remember back that far. If you do recognise Malice Eleos, the faceless rag doll demon wearing a suit, that’s so awesome.
(As for the hooded guy, that’s Odious Flidais. He’s from a set of illustrations I’m currently working on and have been working on for a while. If they turn out anyway good, I might share them with you all)

thumbnail_20171208_171349Well, here it is. The something special I wanted to share with you. All coloured up and looking well. As well as a sad and creepy painting can be, at least.

This is the favourite piece I’ve created so far. Hope you like it and thanks for reading.

Happy New Year

thumbnail_ef02ff5a-5004-4521-90a7-c9b84fb6a6c9I would like to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy New Year and all the best in the year ahead.

By now you’re all probably feeling a little bloated and chubby, from all that food eaten over the festive period (I know I am, at least).

So, to start the New Year well. I’ve drawn you all, a little chubby chibi (mini cartoon character) to accompany the New Year’s greeting. Hopefully it’s cuteness will bring a smile to your face and make you forget all about those festive calories.

Thanks for reading and may 2018 treat you well.

 Answers

1-What’s your favourite thing about Christmas?
Most definitely the food. It’s all so delicious, especially Christmas dinner.   

2-What’s your favourite Christmas memory?
Building milk crate chairs, as a child.
With the extra Christmas dinner guests, there was never enough chairs. So, the children were expected to stand.
However, my siblings and I were rather resourceful and disliked standing, so we made our own chairs by stacking old milk crates upside-down. We thought we were great, coming up with this idea.

3-Are there special traditions your family has for Christmas?
Having a piece of fresh holly in the house for Christmas. This might be an old Irish tradition to do with fending off evil spirits, but I’m not sure. All I know is, nowhere sells holly so you have to go on a bit of a treasure hunt to find some.

For everyone to have a happy and peaceful Christmas.

5-What’s your favourite Christmas dish?
The roast potatoes and of course, the turkey.

Neo Yokio

thumbnail_ab2f874e-52a0-4984-b142-7373af2fc5d8It’s been a while since the last review (over 3 weeks to be precise). Don’t worry, I haven’t given up on them. I just hit a review slump and the last handful of shows and movies on my 2017 list, have just been glob awful. Unfortunately, I can’t put of reviewing any longer, so I’ve decided to pick my poison and review the last terrible thing left on the 2017 list.

I’m just going to come out and say it. Neo Yokio is nowhere near good, by any stretch of the imagination, but let’s not concentrate on that (trying to avoid another rant review, after all). However, as much as this kills me to say, I didn’t completely hate this short 6-episode long anime. But before we get into that, I think a little description of this series is needed.

Neo Yokio, the rich kids’ playground and home to young magistocrat Kaz Kaan. As a magistocrat, Kaz must defend Neo Yokio from the demons that once plagued it. However, he’s not really into his role as a magistocrat and would much rather swan around like the other rich kids and secure his spot on the bachelor board. This is until, a famous fashion blogger becomes possessed by a demon and Neo Yokio is thrown into chaos. Kaz must now protect Neo Yokio from this demonic influence.

That storyline sounds exciting, but it’s honestly very disappointing and anticlimactic. In my opinion, what sours this series, is that it pushes Kaz’s poshness (bourgeois) and foolishness too much and doesn’t deliver the actual story, very well. Neo Yokio, is more about Kaz living in luxury and complaining about it, then Kaz slaying demons. Leaving this series to lack any good action scenes.

thumbnail_3fb8ef7c-d9d4-4036-a82a-d81a4a7d4a8fI’m starting to rant, so let’s get into why I didn’t completely hate this series. The biggest reason I didn’t completely hate Neo Yokio was that, it weirdly makes for good easy watching. If you don’t take it too serious and view it as just something silly to watch to kill a bit of time. It’s not all that bad and is actually somewhat enjoyable to watch. Especially, when you’ve over stretched and tired your brain.

Stranger still, at times this series reminded me a lot of Archer. Maybe it was the similarities between Kaz’s aunt and Archer’s mother or the same type of silliness, displayed by both Kaz and Archer. That his made me feel like that, but luckily Neo Yokio is a lot milder than Archer. So, no need to worry about being traumatised by this series. There nothing really that shocking in Neo Yokio.

Right back on track, another reason Neo Yokio isn’t a complete loss, is the hidden humour. Neo Yokio, sort of takes little subtle digs at the super-rich. From making fun of the snobby mindsets, to comically depicting Kaz’s obsession with self-image. It could be rather entertaining at times, however this humour may not be to everyone’s taste and isn’t enough, for me to recommend watching it.

Overall, Neo Yokio isn’t great, but makes for a nice zombie watch, after a hard day thinking and exercising those brain cells. It also has a nice little bit of humour, to keep things entertaining. However, it’s very silly and the delivery is awful.  Not what you’d expect from a show about a demon slayer, with his own mini Optimus Prime. So, for that reason, I would not recommend watching Neo Yokio (even if Kaz has cute pink hair).

Rating: A very generous 2/5

Top 10 Favourite Festive Movies

thumbnail_b7b5fa60-a601-4c64-b956-822ac5e2497cIt’s that time of year again for some of us. Where we become wrapping paper ninja, where going shopping becomes a deadly game of “Don’t get trampled” and where we make one hell of an attempt to get nice and fat.

Although we all might celebrate different holidays this time of year, one thing we can all come together and relate to, is a good Festive movie. There’s just nothing like escaping the cold, with a nice warm blanket and a hot drink and snuggling down to watch a holiday classic.

For this reason, I give to you my Top 10 Favourite Festive Movies:

10-Jack Frost (1998)
A boy’s father dies and comes back as a snowman. The father and son mend their broken bond, just before the snow starts to melt and you can see where this is going.
This movie isn’t great, but has made it onto the list due to nostalgia. Every Festive season, since I was a child, this movie has been shown on T.V. and it’s never fails be heartbreakingly bittersweet. Not the best Festive movie, but one I’m sure all 90’s children will remember watching, during the Festive season.

thumbnail_fa3a4abd-59e1-4f03-b5b4-5edd3c0840ac9-Rise of the Guardians
An evil villain named Pitch Black, aims to destroy all the holiday guardian’s, so that the world will be thrown into darkness and despair. To stop this villain, the guardians must work together and reignite children’s belief in the guardians.
This list is a bit on PG side, but that’s mainly because families all come together over the festive season. I come from quite a large family, where children (my nieces and nephews) outnumber the adults. So, festive viewing has to be child friendly.
If it wasn’t for that, I probably would have never given this movie a look in. This film is surprisingly dark and may upset more sensitive children, but glob I love the villain in the movie (as children’s film villains go, he’s terrifying). The fact the main character and Elsa from Frozen, has similar powers is a bit suspicious. But ignoring that, it makes for a good festive movie, for when chaos in child form comes to visit.

8- Arthur Christmas
This is a very typical Christmas movie involving the big guy, Snorlax (No, wait that’s not right). I mean, Santa Claus. It’s pretty straight forward, Santa Claus forgets a child and he’s too exhausted, to sort this problem out himself. So, saving this child’s Christmas, falls into the less competent hands of Santa Claus’s son, his retired father and an elf.
Another film I would have ignored, if it wasn’t for child friendly viewing. As Santa Claus movies go, this is one of the better ones and is very entertaining. It makes for a great silly, jokey movie, that both children and adults can enjoy.

7-Frozen
By now we’ve all probably seen Frozen, so it needs little introduction. A hilarious little snowman, catchy songs and a story about two sisters love for each other. What’s not to love? However, this movie comes with an added bonus, Silence. Sounds weird, but stick with me.
When your living room has become a mad hatter’s tea party of screaming children, arguing over something ridiculous (like who gets to open the lid of the sweets). Putting on this film, is like having a magic mute button. Within minutes of putting on Frozen, the shouting and messing stops and the house becomes so quiet, that all you can hear is the rustling of sweet papers, as everyone enjoys some chocolatey treats.

thumbnail_bfab7d9a-711d-4d2d-b5a2-680d677f38d16-Gremlins (1984)
A father, gives his son a strange creature, that comes with a set of strict rules, regarding its care. However, the son accidentally breaks these rules, causing the creature to multiply. Unfortunately, these newer creatures are evil and hell-bent on causing chaos. Leading to a bunch of the evil creatures, running amuck in the town, on Christmas Eve.
It may be an oldie, but it’s definitely one of the best festive films, of its time and is still an excellent movie. Being kind of creepy but funny, it makes a nice change from the typical festive films, shown this time of year. It’s also the reason, I feel uneasy around furbys, but screw it. It’s too good of a film, to hold that against it.

5- A Christmas Carol (2009)
There are so many different version of this classical Christmas story, about an old grumpy, money hungry man, being visited by 3 ghosts, that make him face his heartless and greedy ways. Causing him to become so horrified by his own behaviour and its consequences, that he changes his ways and transforms into Mr Super Nice.
Out of all versions, this one really surprised me. Considering it’s animated, I didn’t expect it to be as good as it was. However, I was wrong and the animation, gave it a really creepy vibe, which made the film very enjoyable.

4-The Nightmare Before Christmas
Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king is fed up with life in Halloween town, so forms a plan to kidnap Santa Claus and take over the Christmas holiday.
I’m a huge fan of stop-motion and Tim Burton is one of my favourite directors, so it’s no surprise that The Nightmare Before Christmas, is on this list. The dark spooky undertone, great character design, dramatic singing and layers of hidden meanings throughout, are all things I love about this film. The Nightmare Before Christmas is just so magical and full of wonder. It’s not hard to see, why it’s also one of my favourite Tim Burton films.

3-Elf
A human raised by elves at the north pole, discovers he is not an elf and wants to return to the human world, to meet his real father. Unfortunately, he doesn’t know how things work in the human world (who ever actually does), which leads to him getting himself into some odd but hilarious situations.
This movie is kind of silly, but silly doesn’t mean bad. In fact, Elf is really enjoyable and is a great good mood movie, that will help relieve that holiday stress (It’s hard to be stressed, when watching someone so cheerful).

63aaf79a-039e-4ce1-9b87-28916246851f2-The Grinch (2000)
The Who’s of Whoville, repeatedly humiliate and treat the Grinch like dirt. So, he decides to get revenge, by stealing the Who’s Christmas.
The older I get, the more I can relate to the Grinch. There’s just times while watching this film, that you realise you’re as odd as the Grinch, have the same level of hatred for Christmas and have some of the same alone behaviours.
I find myself laughing more at the fact, I’m slowly becoming the Grinch, than at the comedy in this movie. However, it’s this relatability that makes this film so enjoyable and amusing. It’s like watching yourself, when you’re in a bit of a bad mood and having a bad day.

1-A Muppets Christmas Carol 
It’s the same classical story as the other A Christmas Carol on this list, except with the Muppets.
I watch this movie multiple times throughout the holiday season and love it for so many reasons. Some of the main reasons being nostalgia, I grew up watching the Muppets and Sesame street and now adore anything to do with puppets. Another reason is, how it uses great quotes from the book. I also love the book, so find this so fantastic.
However, the biggest reason is, the Muppets delivery of a classic Christmas tale. The delivery is just excellent in this film. They take a serious classical tale and add in some humour, without destroying overall tone of the story. It’s my favourite Muppets movie and an excellent festive movie.

Hope you enjoyed this list and feel free to tell me, your festive favourites in the comments. Looking forward to reading them.

Road Lakes to Winter Wonderland

thumbnail_20171122_153118

Mini road lakes. They’re usually a lot bigger than this.

The weather took a bit of a wintry turn this weekend and went from your usual wet miserable road lake weather, to winter wonderland.
But let’s not complain about it. The snow looks a hell of a lot more beautiful, then the dull and soggy appearance, the landscapes usually has.

thumbnail_20171208_110740Ireland doesn’t get much snow (only a day or two a year, if you’re lucky), so I did what every excitable Gobshite, with no sense does and investigated.

thumbnail_20171208_121526First step in this investigation, inspect the snow to make 100% sure it is snow and not a nuclear winter- Yeah, very white and powdery. Pretty sure this is snow and not ash. I think its safe to continue this investigation.

thumbnail_20171208_122045Step two, look for signs of life (got to check that everything hasn’t frozen to death)- Found little bird footprints, so at least the birds are still alive. Not sure about the other humans though, I didn’t see any signs of them. Hopefully, they’re just hiding from the cold and not turned into ice sculptures.

thumbnail_20171208_122517Step three, draw a creepy face on a car to boost morale, in this investigation.

thumbnail_20171208_123436Step four, see how far the snow stretches across the landscape and think about transport- Yeah, stretches pretty far, only a crazy person would drive in that. The buses will be running so late.
Then decide this step was a bit boring, so end it by serenading your neighbours, with your own beautifully sung version of Jingle Bells. 

thumbnail_20171208_124729Step five, stare at the sky and use your inner wisdom to predict if more snow will fall from the sky- I correctly predicted yes. I truly have the inner snow predicting wisdom.

Investigation over and bones well frozen, I retreated back inside to find a nice warm place to hibernate, until the snow has melted.

Camping with Animals

Last weekend I discovered something very cute and very fun. Something I haven’t played since my early teens, something I’m sure a few of you may remember playing. Animal Crossing, to be precise I discovered Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and all I can say is I’m overcome with nostalgia. So much in fact, that I really wanted to draw people as Animal Crossing Villagers. But, sadly no one would let me draw them and I had to resort to drawing myself as a villager (not as much fun as drawing other people). Nevertheless, I give to you, myself as a little Animal Crossing Bear (holding a cup of coffee).

thumbnail_20171204_170726I chose a bear because I have bear body proportions and occasionally, eat loads and go into hibernation (Bear like in behaviour and appearance).

Since I was only able to create one villager, I thought I’d do this properly and make a short little character sheet. Not sure exactly what goes into one, but not to worry, I’ll try my best to make it entertaining (as always).

Personality: Curious and playful, but also very skittish.

Appearance: Honey Brown and Brown.  Always seen holding a cup of coffee, looking a bit frightened and confused.

Outfit: Lilac and Blue dress
