Family Matters

Nah, not the show but i liked that show back then.

I got a few things to spill out on current family BS but before that, artwise, Extra Stage disc 2 is under way, 1 page per week since the time the first pages were posted so im at page 3 of the new book and ill try to keep that schedule up while im working at my new job.


For the family BS:

7-8 months ago my cousin borrowed a large amount of cash from me since i felt i needed to help her as someone robbed her credit card and made a large amount of purchase on it. So trying to do a good thing for a family member, so far so good right? Again this was 7-8 months ago, since then, she cut off contact with the rest of the family, having everyone wonder what the hell happened to her. She doesn't answer the phone, rarely stays home with her BF and doesn't answer text messages as well.
This kinda pisses me off to a certain level, i know she may have some kind of personal issue, but no personal issue is too great to cut off from the entire family FOR 7-8 MONTHS with no signs of life, that's just a bit exaggerated.
My only guesses on what could possibly be going is :
1)Unwanted Pregnancy
2) Deep Dark urban city after hour shit ((And thats just taking it to the extreme))

But either way, you can still show signs of life for fuck sakes.
Now its family, so i dont really want to pull off the "track down technique" eventhough i could easily force my way to an answer but burn the bridges to that family branch quite fast.
So sticking to that "family first" type of mentality where you still care about how the family is doing and that would be "the christian thing to do" even if i did turn atheist DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUN after during high school.
So now both my second cousin and own mother are spewing shit about not giving a fuck about theses guys (that branch of the family) and their problems.
Ok, so the good christians are telling me to ignore family matters and that theses guys might be scumbags.

Thats goddamned twisted, its all freaking goddamned twisted.

This whole bullshit is fucking twisted.


So caring about family during hard periods of time is wrong? Eventhough they do stupid shit at times. Shouldnt they be left a few chances? I kinda find this mentality fucked up on many sides.
I wish i had more time to type it out but i might just have to do a Vlog about it

No longer supporting prince of persia

Dont get me wrong, i loved the original game, finished it and liked the ending.


The epilogue is a piece of shit.
I have no idea what they were thinking when they started programing theses levels but theyve managed to create the most frustrating prince of persia levels with the cheapest elements a-la Megaman X8: Last level.

I dont know who's brainless idea was to crank up the difficulty level to Devil May cry 3 stage after the moderately difficult game.
And some of the difficulty is added because of buggy jump, over emphasize on glitchy Elika jump spams and often poor camera angle contradicting the player's command causing leap of fates quite often.
Theses causes this anger and hatred that simply gets you to shut down the ps3 or go play a less buggy game.
Im quite dissapointed and i will no longer finance any more DLC for that game nor sequels and such.

Oh and i finished killzone before POP and even that was less frustrating since i had no bug messing around with the last boss fight .

Extra push

i think i want to go further than cell-shading yet, comic wise it'll eat up more time to pull off. As much as i like cell shading, it just doesn't push me to my full extent, it just looks pretty for cartoon characters. Yet unless there is a way to mix it up, it kinda feels boring. Time to splash them markers out and experiment.

Drunk ?!

BBQ yestarday and i did a crazy mix between what i though was cranberry juice and smirnoff, apparently the cranberry juice already had vodka and i added more vodka into it, all that in a big cup. Never again i say, i was off balance from that one, even when we went to the St-Hubert a few hours later, i hadnt fully recovered from that mix of doom. Aside from that, fun times.

also :

Comic will be there for now, no cash for those fancy websites and here is chuck norris fighting a zebra.

Enjoying comic making once more

Otakuthon passed, things just went by and now i get to enjoy working on the ExtraStage Comic on my own pace with a 36 page advance. Right now im really enjoying the fact that i can flow with the story as much as i want. No real page limit, no character specific restrictions, no constrained character canon to bare with. Its quite enjoyable, ill still push myself to pop one page per week while having them fully colored and shaded so that Extra Stage Disc 2 gives a better quality than 36 pages on red bulls. But disc 1 was still a fun rush and it was a great relief to pull it out, spread it and at least get my name out there with this con so that i can get more drive to man up and bring more things on the table next year.

ComicCon Montreal is gonna be next month, got a few friends to meet again, Kate Bradley will be there, the Hulk's voice actor will be there and since i want that ComicCon to grow, ill try to spread the word as far as i can. Im sure it'll be bigger than last year and wont bomb like World Con which occured last weekend. The first time is always a dud, too bad this one was an expensive dud.

I dunno if i can participate to adapt this year, unless i tackle a big loan with interests and loosing a week's salary, man, i want to tough, meeting old friends, learning more madness, such a rush. Another spot i gotta advertise. Non official advertisement but not too hardcore since it can go wrong at times.

Anyhow, here are some of the cards i sketch on, i need to buy another pack tomorrow since they are running out while i thumbnail on the next comic pages, 99 cents for a pack of 100 i think, anyhow, they go out fast, i find them better than post its for the color, resistance and size. (I can still sneak em in anywhere and draw).

Ok then back to sleep.

PS: Go Finance games like Blazblue and Yakuza 2, low publicity but great games.
