Games / Hello chaps! Wanna watch me play the new God of War game?
« on: 23 April, 2018, 09:02:32 am »
'Allo you lovely lot!

I haven't been around these parts as much latey due to being kept REALLY busy with work. Thought it might be a good idea to to pop back in and mention a video I uploaded yesterday on Youtube where I play through the first half hour of the new God of War game on PS4. It's a bit neat - even if my crappy video equipment doesn't do a brilliant job of capturing it. (Audio's a bit scratchy as well at the start.)

Here be the link for anyone who's interested:

I've actually gone a bit beyond some of the stuff in the video. This game is INSANE! I played through a boss fight last night that made me wonder if what I was seeing was even possible!

I don't know if I'll get a chance to play any more of it this week, let alone record any more of the game (I've just fought off a Content ID troll, Kratos style, on this video as it is) but it really is a treat!

Anyone else got a copy yet?

Links / When Are you Gonna Stop Watching Those Cartoons?!
« on: 23 June, 2015, 06:33:37 am »
Howdy-ho, chaps and chapesses!

Just a quick note that I set up a blog recently, where I talk about anime. You can find it here:

https://watchingthosecartoons.wordpress.com/

I set this up just because I got nagged to, really. And it's actually quite fun stuff to write about. Over the last couple of months I've had some worrying stuff going on as well, and putting together a small, just-for-fun project has been a good antidote to that.

It'll be an irregular update kind of deal (as I'd rather spend free time making comics) but I've still given some thought as to how I can make it useful. If anime is something you're into or curious about, and the plethora of overly sarcastic, sweary and (frankly) rather naff YouTube reviews wears you down, hopefully you'll find what I'm posting a bit more to your taste.

The principal aim of it is to talk about stuff that isn't perhaps as well known, and to that end, I don't necessarily talk about brand new stuff. Some of it may even be out of print. There's some damned coool stuff out there in Japanese Cartoon Land, and it ain't necessarily the stuff everyone knows about.

Anyways, there it is. Feel free to give it a read and sign up to follow. There's a Facebook page as well, for convenience:

Creative Common / Broken Goddess Athena - webcomic by HdE
« on: 24 September, 2014, 01:53:02 am »
Hello Tharglets!

I'm a little leery of posting this here, as I'm not sure exactly how appropriate it is to use this sub forum as an airing ground for personal projects. That said, I've poured a LOT of work into this project since I started it, and I'm pretty keen that it gets seen, and people at least know it exits.

On October 1st I'll be launching what amounts to my first major comics work as both writer and artist. Broken Goddess Athena (for that, dear friends, is what it is entitled) is my attempt to make the kind of comic I want to read. I'll not say TOO much about it, because I want the actual story to come as something of a surprise to any readers who are charitable enough to give it their time. Suffice to say, its a space opera.

I've been posting promo images around the web recently in hopes of drumming up some interest. Here's one that hopefully gives you a glimpse of it at its most action-tacular:



Further promos to come ahead of the launch date. Speculate away, chum and pals!

... I wrote one!

Yessums! I'm cock-a-hoop over this. Vertical Publishing have chosen to employ a short excerpt from my review of 'Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin', which I penned for the Anime UK News website, in their promotion for the latest volume.

Here's a link for those sufficiently interested. I'm not credited by name, but the blurb at the bottom of the grey column is from me.

http://www.vertical-inc.com/books/gundam.html

This is one of those things that probably feels much cooler than it actually is. But I'm pretty much ecstatic to hear about it.

Apparently, the quote appears on the current print run of the latest volume as well.

Creative Common / HdE - LETTERPUNK!
« on: 15 June, 2013, 04:27:01 pm »
For that is the name of mine very own blog! Yup. I letter stuff. But you guys knew that, right?

Now, generally, I don't post a lot here by way of samples or whatnot. I sort of view this board as the venerable Jim Campbell's little bit o' turf. But I've decided that my blog has grown sufficiently in stature and girth - yes, GIRTH - that I'd post a thread here to draw your attention to it. You can find it here:

http://letterpunk.wordpress.com/

I update fairly irregularly, but as the page doubles as an online portfolio, you can expect to see stuff pop up there in due course.

Today's latest post is to do with a rather full page I lettered for the Transformers Multiverse fan project, which I also run along with my little team of co-ordinators. I worked pretty hard on this one, so I'm feeling inclined to get a few eyes on it.

Now, I'm out of this thread before Jim shows up and beats me with iron bars, or something.

General / Them new coffe mugs are a bit tasty, innit?
« on: 06 October, 2012, 10:49:57 pm »
Except, I wouldn't know, as my recent fiscal misfortune meant I had to cancel my orders of the two new mug designs I'd placed. Along with everything else I'd pre-ordered on Amazon.

Ah well... I decided to work out this suprisingly-more-depressing-than-it-should-be turn of events with an episode of my irregular webcomic. I was hoping I could weave it into one fo the ongoing Dredd discussions here, but what the heck - here it is!

I really want some coffee now...

Welcome to the board / Hello everybody!
« on: 22 July, 2009, 07:52:42 pm »
Hi all! I'm a new user to the boards, possibly a few folks have seen my work over on DeviantArt.

Just a note to say hello to everybody online. I may not be around much, but I'll definitely stop by to see what's going on every once in a while.
