That's about all I've got on the subject, I've never done anything beyond marijuana mainly because it's hard to find anything else in New Zealand.
But let me talk about my marijuana setup, I've got a shed in the back yard with two couches on each side and a nice little coffee table in the middle, Star Wars poster with every character, common sea birds poster, common insects poster, common fish poster (my friend has a whole bunch of these common X posters for some reason) all held up with magnets. There's about 30 candles, all different colours and we like to pour the wax into a jar of water and see what shape it sets as.
I don't think you can have any major epiphanies on weed, but my friends and I have definitely had good times in there.

In other news, here's what I made today:

For the opening cutscene of Fetch Quest, I need to draw the rest of the boat for the background now.

I've been working on my game (Fetch Quest) pretty decently for a while now and we'll be throwing up a demo soon, I'll be sure to let you guys know.  :y:
Oh, we're done!
Please guys, I'd love to hear what you think about our game so far, keep in mind this is mainly an engine demo but I still think it's pretty fun.

I'm good, life is still a bit unsettled- we had another large earthquake a week ago, I've been working on my game (Fetch Quest) pretty decently for a while now and we'll be throwing up a demo soon, I'll be sure to let you guys know.  :y:

Happy magical rabbit day everyone!

I was hoping to think of a simple definition that could be applied to any medium in at least some way.
It's not very original to get hung up on the definition of art, but it really is something to think about. I guess I am hoping for a simple broad definition too, I think there's a way to summarize the potential of any given artform.
I don't know if I agree with intellect and emotion being a real factor (at least to be used in an attempt at a broad definition) because they can be received in an entirely different way. I think imagination plays the largest role on the receivers end, because I would be happier just engaging someones imagination rather than a specific feeling or thought.

Would you guys agree that "a celebration of the imagination" is a good simple definition of art?

We've been getting minor aftershocks since the other big quake in September (we had another on boxing day) so you do kinda get used to them, but the one last week was pretty insane, I could see my room twist and shake while everything just bounced around like it was nothing.
I think at this point I can safely say no one I personally know was killed, most people had a close call story or two, but it's really quite lucky. My brother for example was just about to put his 4 month old to bed when he started crying, then the bookshelf walked in and bodyslammed his crib, one of my friends is an emergency medic so he was riding with an ambulance and army escort all day, carrying bodies, helping treat people, evacuate schools, etc, he even got to raid supermarkets and pharmacies for medical supplies and food/water for neighbourhoods.
My day was pretty tame, just sat outside in the driveway, got the generator going so we could charge our phones and watch the news, eventually the neighbours started coming over so we got the BBQ out and had a big neighbourhood BBQ going.

Everything is still really weird, the roads are like waves, there's liquifaction everywhere which is basically quicksand, it was very windy yesterday so you couldn't see to the other side of the street at some points, we've had looters but on a pretty small scale, and some of the international search and rescue workers have said this is the most organized operation they've been a part of.
Some of my friends have already left, and others are planning on leaving which really sucks, I absolutely understand- but it still sucks.

This photo is probably the best example of the overall attitude for Christchurch:

We'll be fine.

Hey guys, we had another major earthquake here in Christchurch New Zealand, the power and water are back on, just wanted to let everyone know I'm fine, but the death toll has already passed 100 and there are still hundreds missing.

Some photos if you're interested: (that cathedral in the first photo was part of my highschool)

Oh Elk man that is awesome, thank you so much. :)

And Fry, in case it isn't clear, yours is actually part of a galaxy, yes I did colour reduce and no it's not finished- but it will be.

Here's what the original pic looked like:

It's practically a christmas tradition that I don't finish my piece till the last day, I kinda bit off more than I could chew this year but hopefully the tradition is upheld.  :P

Yes yes! Sign me up and count me in.

I'd like something psychedelic this year, listen to this if you need an aide. Bonus points if you can work Carl Sagan in there.
(any wrapping will be fine)
