Oh hello there..

Mon Dec 15, 2008, 5:59 AM

EDIT: Sorry, I just had to link this for happiness :)
Where the hell is Matt?

So, wow..I haven't made any of these in ages haven't I?

I am still lurking around but very busy working on Darkfall Online (and no I am actually not doing anything art related except the Worldbuilding I have done last year and early this year). Right now it's other fun stuff :)

Anyway, yeah work is very busy as we near the release (January 22nd, 2009! phew).

Painting wise I haven't done anything, turned down every request I got (even though some of them I really delayed to say no because I always hoped I would find back to my old self in the end but..nuh uhh).
Oh but Spectrum 15 arrived at my parents place and I am finally able to drool over it and bath in the fact that I made it in (such a huge honor, I am still quite flattered).

Been playing Warhammer Online for a while until I got super bored waiting for real ORvR sitting at 40 for a long time (my bad really for leveling up way too fast).

Now I am hooked on Guitar Hero World Tour (even though we only have two guitars, no mic or drums or so). I totally love the playlist (Mr. Crowley!!) and it's great practice for my weak hands too. I ended up hardly being able to move my arm and shoulder because after we bought it I ended up playing all weekend without a real break :D I still don't manage anything else but some songs on medium..I am such a noob, as where henning is jamming along on some expert songs already (bastard).
But then he plays the guitar irl, so I got an excuse and I still love him ;)

What else, oh yeah, looking forward to next year, lots of cool movies coming.
On the same topic: we just finished watching the Special Edition of "Hellboy 2". The Angel of Death is hands down the coolest fantasy creature I have seen in a movie. That design is just so totally kickass..seriously..

So, that were some random thoughts. I wish everyone a happy X-mas and hopefully a healthy and eventful 2009 :)

I'm still on easy and we've had Guitar hero for like two years:P

My pinky is simply not able to hit the blue button properly, so whenevera blue chord appears, I'm screwed:D

The Angel of Death is really creepy, but I hope we get to see more of her(?) :)

I love the Matt video! :D I first saw it a while back when somebody else on dA sent it to me, and I love it just as much now as I did then! I recently saw him on some kind of credit card advertisement on TV - I'm not sure if it was American Express or something else, but he seems to be getting places with his merry little dance! :lol: Love it! :heart:

Merry Christmas to you and Henningdude :D
BenDouglasUK Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2008
Merry Christmas Tascha! I heard about the close release of DFO from Henning a few days ago, I'm really looking forward to seeing what you guys came up with :D As for Warhammer, the ORvR has really hotted up around the 40 mark on the [EU] Burlok server. Once EA/Mythic had reset the campaign there was a gigantic battle in the T4 section between Altdorf and the Inevitable City - something close to 1000 players battling it out with proper battle formations and scouting parties etc...totally mental! Anyways, I hope you have an awesome Christmas and I hope the DFO release goes smoothly :D

sythere Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2008
husky rescue ?? alrite :) yup,, that angel of death fella is tremendously kool and i highly respect del torro and his work but i MUST say that the movie itself is ,, well ,, it's just so far away from the comic that it bothers me .. high above other superhero stuff nevertheless .. well i'm a fan so i just can't go without naging .. bla bla arbl arbl :)

Oh, hi! Long time we haven't got news from you :D It's great to know things are coming along nicely for you two. GH rocks (though I'm for sure n00b-er than you! :D), and... having fun with such a close deadline? Hell, I bet you're beta-testing the game day and night, am I wrong?

Hehe, you two have a great holidays and new year! Hope to see you eventually (at least since Jan 22th) around in PB. 'Tis not the same without the founders!
