SO! I won Portal 2 today!!
Mostly because I’ve been playing with vigor because it really is one of the BEST games I’ve ever played and probably floats right up there into my top few list. It’s probably taken me about a week? I’m not sure…but I’d play for 3 hours at a time so it took me a while. I always feel like I can work my way through the game at a rhythm pace with few interruptions. That’s probably what makes the game so addictive.
If you haven’t played the game yet, PLAY IT. It’s been on the market for a while now so you can get it for fairly cheap. If you like robots, puzzles,psychological matters, some philosophy, physics and great characters this is the game for you.
So, under the break I’m going to be talking about my feelings and it can be just a tad spoilerific! So if you haven’t played the game to completion, I don’t advise you pass this line.
yeah okay, to bed with me.
Guys, please, don’t even question this but I need to say this. I’m going to say it now. I’m going to say it once:
I AM A BUTTERFLY.
I am actually a butterfly. I actually am.
With all this talk of humble beginnings, you guys brought up to me the fact that the start of Cheap’s blog was the rockiest start of all starts I’ve ever started.
See, cause I would post the first pic of Cheap in the ‘Once-ler hair’ post but it wouldn’t be fair because….I’ve switched the media around too much so some of this demanded to be just…wow.
BUT OKAY. If you don’t want to read the rest, here he is. This is the legitimate first update where I show Cheap’s face.
Let’s showcase how variable my art style and media has been, shall we? Oh man. It’s so jarring.
I ended up drawing deadsalesman's OC, Esther!
I wasn’t entirely sure how to interpret him but he is a bit of a grump so I tried to get that across a little. I also had the desire to use pink primarily with him. Hope you like the colours! And also a hat attempt and flying cards!
Thanks for always drawing my OCs, Llama!!
Time to bring my laptop downstairs and attempt to play that level in portal that had me genuinely stuck! Sometimes it helps to take a break and get back to it and look at it differently. Prevents ‘game insanity’.
So far today has been somewhat productive. Fed all the animals, walked my dog and had breakfast. Cool cool~
Tonight’s challenge was to draw something using only the default colour palette on MS paint. Naturally I chose Cheap because he got part of his humble beginings on MS paint and it’s also a “cheap” program. Well sheesh…considering it comes with every single Microsoft computer, there you go.
Yeah, enjoy frying your eyeballs on this.
It’s 2014 and I still find it really weird how we consider our own askblog characters to be our sons in this fandom. I do not argue with it, but it never fails to make me laugh because while we love our sons so very much, we just want to rain down extreme suffering and embarrassment at every turn…
And we constantly call them losers and dorks but they are OUR losers and dorks. Tough love….only with characters.
