It's a great pic!

I just started using Clip Studio after years of working in Photoshop. Slightly frustrating at first trying to find equivalents to all of my trusty photoshop tools, but I'm really enjoying it now.

The brush tools, the blending and the layers management are a huge step forward over the version of photoshop that I had been using.

I didnt feel any of that pain while playing Odyssey, easily one of my favourite gaming experiences of the last 20 years. I'm gutted that after about 150 hours I've finally run out of things to do. I'm no mourning it's end.

There's a real Bill Sienkiewicz vibe to that Venus picture.....really nice.

If we are talking most influential I would say it's a close call between Mick McMahon and Carlos Ezquerra. They pretty much did all there is to do with Dredd's appearance. Carlos concept, evolved by Mick a lot. Wouldn't say the Dredd uniform or character design has evolved since the 80's. McMahon is the king of drawing mega city and the lawmaster for me too.

Joking aside, their Dredd figure and the black version of that bike immediately sold out and subsequently more than doubled in price. Certainly a market for the movie versions at 1/6 scale. Shame Hot Toys hasn't produced one, or at the very least Sideshow under their "cult classics" line.

Dave Taylor, should you be reading, the art on Fiends was absolutely fantastic. Great work. I'll miss it!

So, I guess that means the last Strontium Dog story printed in the prog with Wulf's son was the absolute last Johnny Alpha strip  Carlos had drawn?

Looking that way. In its own tragic way, this leaves the strip at a perfect spot: Johnny has a new partner to lighten his load and his mood,  the Doghouse is back up and running,  but now under mutant control, and the old Mutant War gang are all back on the streets and spaceways.  That's as close to both a new beginning and a happy ending as we're likely to get.  I'd be sad but satisfied to leave it at that. I've really no interest in SD without Carlos.

I feel the same, the strip is forever associated with Carlos for me and couldn't see it being the same without him. I'm sure we will see the character again in the future, but it was as good a conclusion as we could have hoped for all things considered.

I'm not very good at articulating these things, but not only have we lost arguably the prog's greatest contributor, but I feel that certain characters have gone along with him.

Please don't take that as me making light at the loss of Carlos, which has felt like a gut punch for me. I can easily say that almost 40 years of reading comics and drawing can be directly attributed to him.

Avoid AC1 like the plague though, it's prototype trash!

I remember buying into the hype for Assassins Creed I, purchasing the steel box special edition, and being bitterly disappointed by the game play and jerky graphics.
I've only barely dipped my toe in the AC universe since; bought II on XBox 360 but never even played it, then bought III on PS3 but gave up after about an hour due to the shoddy controls.

Mixed reviews for the deluge of subsequent games has kept me away.

Have to say though, the comments on Odyssey below are piquing my interest.

I really disliked the first Assassin's Creed, probably why I've avoided the series ever since.....but this really is a million miles away from that first game.

I've got a bit of a love/hate relationship with Assassin's Creed games (I tend to like a lot of aspects of them and really dislike others), but the one that I genuinely loved was Black Flag. I haven't played the last couple so don't know how they compare, but if you want more AC Woolly then I can heartily recommend it!

It's a great pirate simulator, with some ace naval combat (which they never used in any of the sequels, although I believe Odyssey has some?), give it a go!

Yeah, the naval combat is fully incorporated into Odyssey as well. And for the first time they've introduced RPG elements with conversation choices and you can choose male/female character.

So i finally gave in and tried an Assassin's Creed game - Odyssey.

About 8 hours in and it's blimming great. Plays very much like The Witcher 3, and the world map is huge.

Can see myself sinking alot of time into this one.

Save yourself Woolly while you still can. This is the first game in a long while that I've become totally addicted to......sleep deprivation is really kicking in now.

Nope, it's already too late.
I'm utterly gripped - are any of the other AC games this good? Might give them a try also off the back of this one...

I only ever played the original which I wasn't a fan of......then this one, which has blown me away. I've heard a lot of positives about the previous game, "Origins", too.

Last night I received the "legendary" helmet of Ares (no innuendo intended)......it's worrying how much joy that brought to a middle aged man.

My eyes hurt now.....but I'm still carrying on. I had finally started drawing again, but that's been put on the back burner again, this is more fun.
