AwesomeCake Image Extravaganza

I was cleaning out my phones photo gallery today, when I found a few gems here and there. Thought I'd put them all into one post for maximum laughs. 

So enjoyabry (I am going to hell).
 Most of these photos are example of awesome engrish I have found on toys and such at MH's. Although sometimes...

It's just a misspelling. Still, that's an awesome cambo. 

I used to be just really cool with my stylings. Then I got this laser pistol and became ULTRA COOL MEGA STYLING. 

I remember posting this one to Twitter, ( that's this thing over here ) But it was still pretty funny. This is Hulk BOXING. 

Zeus is moonlighting in Ben10 apparently. That would be a pretty OP thing to transform into. You know, the King of the Gods and all that...

Nothing to see here. Just some ponies living an alternative lifestyle. Totally their choice... 

Yeah... I just thought that was a pretty suggestive pose. Maybe that's just me? 

This really needs something next to it for scale...but it's a really tiny door. Perhaps it's a dwarf factory? 

No one loses when they buy these corn sticks. They're what you might call... a no losing situation. No wait, that's not right... 

The rest of these images are from The Hibiscus Festival. I shall let them speak for themselves. Wilson also has an awesome post from 2007 (Wow...) about Hibiscus if you compare the photos he has in this post though, it looks like they've repainted a few of the rides. And well... need to repaint a lot of their signage >.<

Hardcore Mode: The Desert

So that temple I found the other day was definitely worth exploring...

And yes, I did manage to explore off the edge of the map I had crafted. I didn't even realize it and ended up quite lost. Normally this isn't a huge deal, you can wander about until you find your way home. But on hardcore mode I started to get... paranoid. That in itself is a comic for another day. 


She is quite the linguist, my girlfriend is.

Minecraft: Hardcore Mode

I've been playing a bit of Minecraft lately, and I found that since the last time I had played, they'd added a new Hardcore mode to the game. It's different from the normal survival mode in that you can't change the difficulty at all and upon your death the entire world is deleted. Forever.

So, the masochist in me decided to start a Hardcore world and see how far I could get. The results...

I'm currently on my third go, and I've gotten much further this time. I've got a little farm going with some chickens and wheat to avoid travelling far for food. Have set up a little fortress outside my mine to shoot monsters from relative safety, and always travel with a map in tow. I'm currently dividing time between searching for diamonds and finding a village, so I can try out the new trading system.

Home sweet home. 

On my last exploratory venture I found this right before I had to go to work.

Ruddy mysterious.
Apparently, it's a Desert Temple, and although part of me wanted to explore it straight away the new careful part of my brain that has developed thanks to Hardcore mode made me stop and look it up. A good thing too, because there's a TNT trap in there that would have blown me up if I hadn't been careful. Although, that would have made for an excellent comic.

On The Border

I got Nakita to play Borderlands this weekend. Here's how that went: 

Also, it was my birthday last week, I am now 23 years old. Yes, I'm getting older. However, I am extremely lucky to have wonderful friends who got me very very drunk on my birthday and an amazing and beautiful girlfriend who carried me home and cooked an amazing dinner for everyone that night. Also, she made this kickass Pokeball cake. I mean, look at this thing: 

And it was deliciously super effective.

I think this is going to be a great year.

Crusade of the Guardian

One my favorite games when I was little, was a game called Guardians Crusade on the Playstation. It was a super simple RPG, turn based combat, bright colors, a Tamagotchi/Pokemon-like pet and collectibles galore. So, I did some fanart for it, years ago. And then some more a couple years later. 

This and Wild Arms were the games that made me love RPGs. Speaking of Wild Arms... there's a game I haven't done any fanart for a while now...

A Conversation between Comrades

Did a little bit of a Rule 63 with some old characters I used to doodle in high school. Short post is short.

Addendum to Ember Lancin'

I explained each of the classes to my girlfriend as she sat in front of the character creation screen for Torchlight. That's the Destroyer, he's like a big tank of a guy. Hits things with swords and axes and stuff. And that one is the Alchemist, he has magical spells and the ability to summon little imps and robots. And that one is the Vanquisher, she's good with bows and stuff. Throws traps that explode and shock people and that. 

She chose the Vanquisher because it's the one with the girl character model :P 

Ember Lance For the Win

Playing through Torchlight again. Since part 2 is coming out soon I wanted to finish the game as the Alchemist. Also been working on a new way of shading the artworks. Will probably have to get two copies though, since it's no fun playing the same single player game as your girlfriend does right next to each other :P

In an attempt to get something new to play on my phone apart from Pokemon, I got Fire Emblem. It seemed like a good idea at the time, A turn based fantasy strategy RPG. From Japan. Yay! What I didn't know was that it was ridiculously unforgiving. 

If one of your units dies they're gone for good, I am not sure if there is any way to resurrect them short of cheating. What this means, if you're like me, is that I can't finish a chapter unless I clear it perfectly. Which means a lot of restarting. A lot.

Moving In

The comic IS the post! Whoa!

Almost a Real Post

In lieu of an actual post, here is a doodle I drew today that I worked on and worked on until it ended up looking like this.

Here's the original which I did with pencil, blue pen, a marker and some alligator colors. (Not actually made of alligators). I also like how it looks in mono, so theres that too. 

And lastly, some detail shots.

Remember, adventure is out there!

In the Glade of the Elephant

Just got back from Savusavu after the long Easter weekend. I had this sketch which I was kinda proud of, so here's the final result after coloring and stuff.

And also because I haven't made a GIF in a while, here's one of those too!

Sure, his legs look wonky, but at least I made an attempt instead of trying to Rob Liefeld it and hide them.

Look at this sexy mofo

Magicman does whatever a Magicman can.

That's the welfare tier 13 robe, yes it is. Since the new scroll of bringing people back with crazy benefits and playing WoW again, Seedus the mage has actually been able to do a raid and kill the dude on the box. The whole "killing the big baddie on the box" has always been an issue with me. Ever since I started playing Warcraft, either my lack of ability to sink time or find a good guild or have a decent internet connection has never allowed me to raid. With super easy Raid Finder raids though, I've done it. Yes, it was easier than it should be, yes it was with a group of strangers, but still, I did. So, props to Blizz for making casual raiding a reality. 
This might be worst screenshot of the Deathwing fight ever. 

Does it mean less though? Not taking down the big bad Deathwing in a challenging and rewarding way? I have been playing this game for years. I'm just glad I got to see the fight to be honest. 


And it's not like the gear is the best, so to get the upper level stuff, it would be more of a challenge. I felt a bit bad this morning when the chestpiece dropped and a Druid whispered me asking if he could have it. Then an awesome trinket dropped, which I won the roll for, and he couldn't believe it. It does come down to luck when getting items in LFR, and maybe if I had better gear I might have given it to him. But they were upgrades and I won the roll, should I feel guilty? If I'd won the roll on the shoulders then...actually I would have kept em, because everyone knows that shoulders make up 50% of a set. 

Bear Stealth mode activated.

Now I will get Gambito the Troll Druid to max level, and then see how I feel. I like Warcraft, it's a polished and huge game, and running dungeons with my mates is always the best. Am I interested in purchasing Mists of Pandaria? I'm leaning towards yes right now, but we'll see when it gets closer to release. I have a soft spot for Seedus, and taking him on a holiday to a mystical land full of panda people sounds like a good reward for him.

I first drew this image way back in 2007. I have redrawn it, as you can see! Was an exercise to see how much my style and abilities have changed, and while I still have a long way to go when it comes to my art, I am proud of how far I have come. 

Also, I don't use glow on peoples eyes anymore. 


Okay, only when I want to.

Planes Creature Codex: Mycellian

I have decided to do some writing again, for practice. Here are some words and pictures about a race of mushroom people.

Planes Creature Codex
Entry 341
The Mycellians

The lands of the Mycellian Empire are a swampy, cold and dangerous place. Close to the borders of the Dwarvish lands and near the Verdant Forests it is a land of bogs and caverns. From this place though, a powerful and ancient race has developed, the Mycellians. Fierce warriors, adept spellcasters and master tradesmen, the Mycellians could quite possibly conquer the known Plane, if not for their constant campaign against the Dwarves and Varoans. 


Mycellians are fungal creatures, and typically grow to about six to six and a half feet in height. Elder Mycellians though, have been known to reach ten feet in height, as growth continues even after reaching the mature age of 30. Typically long lived, the average Mycellian can live to about 300 years, but those with the ability to wield magic have been known to live up to 1000 years. The cap of a Mycellian is similar to hair color in humans, as color is generally inherited. However, different families in Mycellian society tend to pass their skills onto offspring, thus the assumption that cap color signifies a Mycellians role in their society is somewhat justified. 

Mycellians do not need to breathe, and instead absorb nutrients through their skin, and through the gills on their faces. They have excellent dark vision, being a primarily underground race. 

Mycellians reproduce through spores, and spores from a male and female are needed to produce offspring. The gestation period for a baby is around 3 months, after which the baby emerges from its sporesac. This is known as its spawnday. 

One final note on Mycellian biology, is the ability for a Mycellian to undergo metamorphosis into what they call a Shadowspore.

No one is sure how this exactly takes place, rumors of dangerous spirits haunting the lowest tiers of the Mycellian underground, or poisonous gases that mutate the Mycellian cell structure are merely speculation, no research can be conducted, due to the nature of the corruption that Shadowspore undergo. 

Shadowspore are shunned by Mycellian society, and haunt the mines and abandoned passages of Mycellia. 

Shadowspore, corrupted Mycellians.

Shadowspore have the ability to corrupt and breed more of themselves by kidnapping errant Mycellian miners and typically hunters are required to seek them out before a large infestation takes place. Single-minded and deadly in their purpose, Shadowspore will attempt to destroy any who enter their lairs. No vestige of the Mycellian that they were previously remains within these foul creatures, although they have been known to collect and steal trinkets.

The most dangerous of the Shadowspore are those Magi who are corrupted, for they retain their magical abilities while also succumbing to the madness inherent in all Shadowspore.


Mycellian weaponry is primarily made of Jade, which is reinforced using ancient Mycellian forging techniques. The Honor Guard of the Emperor is the most distinguished fighting force in Mycellia, and specialize in blade and spear. Armor is typically made of banded metal trimmed with Ironwood, and layered. 

The standing army of Mycellia is made up of the Warrior Class, although all Mycellians are trained in self defense. Some adventurous Mycellians have been known to take part in Gladiator events, where they excel in one on one combat, but have never been able to work together with other warriors who haven't been trained in their ways.

Mycellian society is ruled by their Emperor, who resides in the Jade Palace in Roomia, their capital. The current Emperor is Emperor Agaricus, who has ruled Mycellia for the past 400 years. Below him are the Noble Class, who rule over the Warrior and Trader Classes. 

The rest of Mycellian society make up the Worker Class. A special exception to this are Mycellians who are born able to wield magic. They are taken to Roomia to study at the school of magic there, which is renowned throughout the Planes as the best at producing magi who work with stone and crystals. 

Jade is an important mineral in Mycellia, as it is used for weapons and symbolises luck. Upon reaching 30 years of age, a young Mycellian is often given a circle of jade by its parents,and enters adult society.Mycellians are also known for their shrewdness when it comes to trading, and have established trading posts across the Plane.

Mycellians do not have an official religion, but practice ancestor worship and revere their Emperor. Every family in Mycellia has a crypt dedicated to their ancestors, which they make pilgrimage to on their spawnday, in order to receive good luck for the year.

The Empire of Mycellia has always been involved in conflict with the Dwarves, both above and below ground. As many of the cities of Mycellia are underground, their tunnels spread deep and far, and sometimes encroach on the mines of the Dwarves. Dwarvish raiders have also been known to harass Mycellian trading caravans. 

Mycellians also have come into conflicts with Varoans over the years, but not to the extent of their rivalry with the Dwarves. The last great war with the Varoans resulted in them being pushed back to Opal Mountain, while the technical "war" with the Dwarves is still ongoing.
