Official Off-Topic Thread 2016

A new year, a new thread - and keeping with tradition, a bit late.

Post here about anything that doesn't quite fit anywhere else or deserve it's own thread.

letting feesamay out into the fresh air for the new year.

some of you might enjoy https://www.reddit.com/r/glitch_art/ , occasionally they find neat stuff. I loved:


playing pixel art animations on something like that old radio would be a cool display piece.

Rather than doing art I've been "collecting" art in the last few months on Pinterest, categorizing a certain kind of fantasy art that I can use as inspiration and character portraits for my RPG sessions, not everything but just those that reach a certain standard in quality, originality and cohesive. So far I've collected over 2000 "pins", usually trying to backtrack images to their artists.

I think overall it was a very positive experience, got a good grasp of what artists post their art online, that the majority actually doesn't. Artists that do artwork for books and games and the likes generally seem to not to do that. There are some 20 or something artists that have a lot of great art that fits into the collection, and then there are a few hundred artists that have a single great piece that fits in, but whose remaining art doesn't fit, quality or theme wise.

I don't reference it too often, but I think the collecting itself made me understand what makes great art a bit better.

Hehe, that's actually my piece there, and I've been thinking about what to display on it. I know that Yoyo Games are working on an exporter for the Raspberry Pi, and I'd love to get a game up and running on it. I've played Mega Man on it, and it works, allthough a bit small. And you loose a lot of detail due to both the screen and the coaxial setup :)

These popped up on twitter. From the making of Golden Axe II on Mega Drive. Didn't think they deserved their own thread, but figured y'all might like to see them.

That SEGA Digitizer System III work station looks pretty rad!
