So I found myself reading through old journal entries, had some funny memories of my old ideas; it hit me that I really loved what I was doing, but allotted so little time to actually seeing those ideas progress into something great... I'm glad I don't do that nearly as often anymore.
I mean, I still do it... tons of potential projects and ideas that were simply never made flesh, due to another more interesting or fun project popping up, or forgetting about it altogether. Like those dragons... and the female turians... and so on.
But it's always nice to look back and see how you've grown; it puts into perspective that which you've learned and that which you've... well, failed to learn, and in which directions life's currents have guided you. Pretty cool.
On a more current note, my watchers (if any of you even read journals... I know I usually don't!) will probably have noticed that the Section 8 series grows ever more slowly; I still have a great many ideas for it, but there are other projects that I'm giving priority. Like playing Skyrim. So... if you're actually looking forward to seeing how the implied\minimal\visual story grows, you've probably got quite a wait ahead of you.
In terms of other projects, I've recently revamped my male synthetic personal skin, as you can see in Disciple of Alchemy, Shadows of Fate, and Baneful Whispers. I'm quite proud of the alterations and updates I've made, as well as of each image.
If you're interested in having these skins, I'm sorry but I'm not big on sharing these things across the deviantArt Garry's Mod personal skinners. I really only use this account as a living visual portfolio to show off what I'm doing: no direct downloads for releases, but if you express interest in something I'm showing off (and it's not a personal skin), I'll most likely drop a link to where you can find it.
After editing A Glimpse of the Terminus, I've found myself once again interested in making more space art, so that might happen too. Hope it goes well! I will still continue to upload more of my Garry's Mod works as I churn them out, each with a little story and a description as usual. Glad to see people enjoying them!
Also, over the last few months I've picked up several new games, most of which I've very much enjoyed -- Bioshock Infinite, Metro: Last Light, Mark of the Ninja, Mortal Kombat 2011, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and Sleeping Dogs chief among them. They all come highly recommended by me, if that's got any weight for you.
