Post Ark's Art Ark (MC Pixel Art/Writing/Other Stuff/etc.)
Yay for alliteration and association. Anyway, this is where I will be sharing any pieces of my "art" that I happen to think are worth showing to the community. I'm not great at drawing (no real skill whatsoever) so the kind of stuff posted here will likely fit into one of three categories

1. Minecraft Pixel Art: The closest thing to traditional art that I can do. Will usually consist of 8-bit Nintendo characters who can be nicely portrayed with MC wool colours. I do take requests as long as I can find a reference picture.

Notes
Spoiler: show
NOTE 1: Everything from this category is done manually within the vanilla Minecraft engine in creative/flat mode. I don't use any mods or other external programs to complete any of these images.

NOTE 2: If for some reason I can't produce a specific shade I will default to the nearest colour I can find if it doesn't wreck the image that much. e.g. A dark yellow next to normal yellow would all just be yellow.

NOTE 3: If the default colour is too far from the needed shade I might decide to change it to a different colour completely. e.g. I don't have a dark navy blue so I'll default to dark grey if it fits the image.

NOTE 4: I may use a different colour even if I do have the appropriate shade. This will usually occur if the same colour is used in multiple areas but doesn't seem to fit in my opinion. e.g. The same colour is used in Treble's ears and the circle things on his legs so the leg areas would be changed to yellow (that's how it is in official art anyway).


2. Written Pieces: I am a writer and I occasionally like to write short stories or poems so I will probably post some of them here from time to time if anyone wants to read them.

3. MTG: PRG: Forum things in card form. Learn more about magic the gathering at the MTG Salvation Wiki: http://wiki.mtgsalvation.com/

4. Miscellaneous: Anything that doesn't fit into either of the above two categories, as simple as that.

In the interest of making future archiving easy, I won't put any pieces in this first post.

Enjoy.

Ok, so the first piece depicts the good guys of MM10 with two exceptions. Protoman isn't there because I don't like him. Bass and Treble aren't there because I consider them to be more neutral than anything else.

Well Proto's more of an anti-hero than a pure good guy. Bass does whatever he wants if it means proving his strength. Treble just follows Bass.

Well made. How many hours did you spend on this project?

Eh, maybe three or four? I don't really know. I usually just open a music playlist, open minecraft, open the reference picture and then go at it. It sounds a bit cliche almost but time loses all meaning. I find it relaxing though, especially right after getting home from work or university.

I think I'll also post this one tonight. It depicts everyone's favourite mechanical dragon. I enjoyed working on this bit despite how long it took. One annoyance however is how dark MC's green wool is (as opposed to the lighter lime wool). Perhaps he has some form of robotic scale rot. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks!! :)

Now onto the next portion from my Megaman spree. As was alluded to in the first pic post, I present Bass, Treble and Reggae. I have a bit of a bias towards Bass. Probably because he can aim. That and Treble looks cooler than Rush. I'm starting to think Pink is right about Bass though. The first part I did was Reggae. Then, not a minute after I started Bass it began to rain (in game). The rain stopped once I started on Treble. Perhaps he is trying to be a fish after all.

This is the last piece from my recent Megaman spree and the one that I'm most proud of I guess. I give you a condensed MM10 Stage Select Screen. I couldn't find a proper resource for getting the background but that probably would have doubled the time spent on this at least. Also, my Bass bias shows up again. Also, I updated my texture pack so wool shows up as a solid colour and not like wool, so any pieces that are done after this will be like that.

Post Re: Ark's Art Ark (MC Pixel Art/Writing/Other Stuff/etc.)
It's been a little bit, but I don't have much new stuff. Instead, I'll put up pics of my older (done sometime last year) pixel art. Comments will be in the spoilers.

NOTE: At the time these were done, I didn't know that you could hide the HUD by pressing F1, so you'll see it.

Gary/Blue Oak and Eevee sprite
Spoiler: show
I remember this being interesting because of the simplistic colour scheme. That made it easy to do in MC so bonus points to GB/C games I guess. Fun fact: Ash and Pikachu are on the other side of the tower, but I can't be bothered taking a picture at the moment. (Completely off topic, I'm glad I made the tower/apartment complex before the introduction of flat worlds and increased world height. It would've taken me so much longer to finish if I were to try it now.)

Image


Kirby, Sword offered by Metaknight and Dark Knight Cecil
Spoiler: show
This was my first attempt at pixel art. Kirby, due to being the SNES sprite, lost a few shades, but it doesn't really show. I'm surprised that I had the exact right shades and colours for Cecil though.

Image


Rosa and Dark Knight Cecil in love... and my favourite female in gaming attempting to ruin it.
Spoiler: show
This was a modification of the above picture. I think I destroyed Kirby because he took up too much room. This scene is better anyway.

Image


Rosa and Cecil can't catch a break
Spoiler: show
Megaman and Ho-oh seem to agree with Samus, the missile was a bit too fast for Link and Lakitu's observance of it all has annoyed Luigi. Also, Yoshi is sitting there being Yoshi. Also, Yoshi is blue.

As always Aoi, your input is appreciated :D .

Next up, something I did a few hours ago (yep, actual 'NEW' stuff tonight). I present Ganon: Crazed Zombie Pig Wizard (final boss of an Oracle of Ages/Seasons linked game). I like this one. It has a certain kind of character to it I think that, so far, hasn't really appeared in these pieces. Also on offer is the angered form of the Armos Knight from Link's Awakening.

Wow,, just over a month with no content. I will have to do something about that. Time to put up something other than MC Art I think (Which, lets face it, isn't impressive when it's all things you've seen before). I present to you, dear viewer, a poem. Originally it was only the first stanza, which I have changed about half of. And before you ask, no, I am not mentally troubled, psychotic, depressed or anything of the like. I swear.

~Tortured Soul of a Tortured Mind~

Twilight shadows on the wall
Watch me stumble, watch me fall
Break my legs and make me crawl
Further down your ruined hall

On broken glass I feel my pain
Cutting me so blood will drain
Constricted by a barbed wire chain
My mind is gone, no longer sane

My situation getting dire
Sing voices of the dead man’s choir
Torches burn with demon’s fire
Lighting up my funeral pyre

As I burn the blue eyes cry
Wordless screams fade to the sky
Questions only asking why
These visions won’t just let me die

Wounds too deep for me to mend
No entity that I call friend
In this nightmare I will spend
Eternal life without an end

I wasn't gonna ask, that would be rude. I'm always imaginative when reading these and I really like this piece. So good job, take the word of someone who has no experience in writing poems, which is to say, me. ^_^

Spontaneous update including a poem with no real context!!!

~People I Only Think I Know~

First born son of a maiden blue
Life seeker, light seeker, has no clue
Has no father, has no kin
Carries the day with innocent sin

Woman of shadows casts a smile
A darker self kept in denial
Trains her heart and trains her soul
Suppresses the mind to make it whole

Go little birdie, fly away
Save your death for another day
The sharpest knives won’t help you here
An open head that fills with fear

A soul stained black with hellfire taint
A repentant goal though he is no saint
Clouds surround those he has slain
Pouring down a bloody rain

Family dead by insane hand
Yet with that threat he still will stand
Healing others with natural arts
Carrying the Ace of Hearts

Clothed in white with an opposing crest
Moonlit star within his chest
Bringer of pain dealt out in spades
Hooded fighter with double blades

Soul of two in body of one
Fighting, training, just for fun
Voice of youth in the veteran’s hall
Following gods to heed their call

Unnatural shields that will not break
And powers of others he can make
Logic wins within his mind
A better future he hopes to find

From magic and science and power he came
He has none but himself to blame
Darkness cries out for escape
So that his heart it can reshape

A wanderer of shifting space
With memories he can’t erase
The outcast in this world of death
He fights to keep his final breath

It seems that a few of us have been playing The Binding of Isaac lately, as is evident both on the forums and on skype. Being a big fan myself, I decided that it would be the focus of my next Pixel Art image. I now present the full cast of the game's playable characters. Maggy was annoying at first because I couldn't get the hair looking right. But after I worked out a look that I liked, it became the template for how I would start on Eve and Samson.

From left to right, in the order that they appear on the character select menu: Isaac, Maggy, Cain, Judas, Eve, ??? and Samson.

Thanks :)

By that token, Eve could also have had the dead bird. I did try a few ways of fitting them in but it never turned out well so I decided it would be for the best to leave those details out.

Post Re: Ark's Art Ark (MC Pixel Art/Writing/Other Stuff/etc.)
Since it has been almost a week since the last update, I think it's time for another. During my classes I often find myself jotting down small things, poems and such, instead of paying attention (However, 8 was actually a task based on modernism. It is made completely from snippets taken from what I think was an academic journal of some kind.). I'll post parts of what I've jotted down here, kind of like a collection. This is the first of grab bag collection, with more to possibly come in the future. Enjoy.

~Grab Bag Collection 1~
Spoiler: show
1.
Fear of flying
Death and dying
Falling to the ground

Hit your head
The earth your bed
Sleep without a sound

2.
Theatrhythm
I'll never complete it all
Damned critical chains

3.
Crowned with wreath of heatless fire
Walking down the road
Lost and fallen wandering one
Sleepless one
Tired one
One who cannot die

4.
Devil's Mount with lance of ice
Frozen bone spike on the wind
Mountain falls because it does
Earth betrayed
People floating
Vacuum spaces
Lost

5.
Grab and take and steal
Kleptomaniac hero
Hoarder of treasure

6.
Darting dancing
Snowbound raven
Frozen feathers
Fading Strength

Losing height
Mercury dropping
Thud

7.
Siren’s allure in the ocean grey
Drowns the lonely sailors
Drags them down to the crushing depths
Snap
Crackle
Pop

8.
My hunger, breathless
Manifested by insanity
Uncanny psychology
A madness, contemporary

Ladies and gentlemen
As if possessed
Can't write, can't speak
Continue to crowd

American, English, Scottish
Freud's phrase, not mine
I lose a lot of minor details
Ultimately, dead

Another MC contribution this time, based on a sprite from SMB3 SNES. I think it speaks for itself really.

So hey, another update already it seems, more writing this time, though not of the poetic variety. A writing task for uni had me writing a horror story of 250 words and I thought I'd share the outcome. Enjoy.

The Manor out of Place
Spoiler: show
A man travelling through the night stopped at the manor. He never arrived at his destination. A boy went to deliver the paper to the manor. His rounds went unfinished. A realtor went to inspect the manor. She never returned. A journalist went to investigate the manor.

The air was cool and the stars were dull. The old inn stood tall against the trees. He approached the threshold, venturing beyond. A lone candle flickered. The clerk was still and silent, hooded and pale. He asked for a room and about other guests. He was ignorantly given a key. A slight rustling was heard but the eaves were a void. At the edge of vision, a crimson tear from her eye.

The room was cold, enough so to extinguish the heat. The blanket itched. The pillow was hard. The time spent in dreams was restless. Something woke him; perhaps a scream in his thoughts or a feeling in the air. Muffled cries floated up beneath the floor, though he never climbed the stairs.

A door and a descent, wooden creaks alerting what lay below. Candle in hand, he walked onwards. There, the clerk. Pale face, blue lips, a streak of red, fallen to the floor, gossamer strands at her joints from above. Things like spiders, yet tall and slim, shrieks echoing his croak. A glimpse of a bloated beast, mother of the brood, and then the world went black.

Feeling numb, can’t see, can’t breathe, choking on string and getting weak.

Today I'm posting something a little, different. Currently there is no image of my OC, Ark, and I've been too busy to do a proper description for a request (I'm working on it). However, I stumbled upon something that gave me a chance to at least get a simple concept look together.

Image

Yeah, I know, Walfas. But I think it serves its purpose well enough for now. As such this image will also go on the OC page itself.

In keeping with the mostly parallel updates between here and my blog, today's post contains two more written offerings, the first is a piece of appropriation poetry and the second is something completely original. As is for the most part customary, enjoy

~ Appropriate Appropriation~
Spoiler: show
They have wandered, punished in secret
Shameful sickness of our capitalist machinery
Masculinity, femininity
Frigidified to eternal rest in the mirror

Our glances fearing the old ages
Senses taking shape
A well adjusted monster
A resonant rapture

A deadly tumult of horrified vision
Ashamed from infinite outbursts
Everywhere, we exude useless activity
A constructed horror, a new blood


~AABCCDEEFGGHIIJKKL~
Spoiler: show
Calico Cat King
Sliding to the bell ring
Waiting for the bird song out upon the dusty road

Ordering the old rat
From underneath his crown hat
Blinded to the poison that was slipped into his eyes

Falling on his fat face
Losing in the rat race
Hordes of rodents cheering as they put him in the ground

Now the king is deceased
Prisoners are released
Anarchy is rampant in the middle of the streets

A kingdom left in ruin
Destroyed by an old sin
Overrun by greed which fuelled the chaos of the time

There is nothing left there
Barren wasteland left bare
This is the only record of the fall of all of us

So, I was playing around with Walfas stuff some more and attempted something more akin to a scene image, rather than that of just one character. Each character is some form of representation of someone's OC or a variant thereof, however the scene itself doesn't represent anything in particular that has occured within the RP area. Probably won't do any more Walfas stuff in the foreseeable future, so this isn't a trend.

If those 2 on the ground are supposed to be Jobs and Aoi, you could of just imported the DNAs of them and used the cloning machine to get them up, the DNAs can be found on the Walfas thread (which is currently on page 2 of the Artist Centre as of this post)

Considering I never knew we even had a Walfas thread... Not that it matters though, I wasn't trying to get super serious representations or anything, just screwing around with it, that's all. Thanks for the info though Vega. If I go back to Walfas in the future it might come in handy.

Now I feel kinda stupid though...

*sweeps away the cobwebs and fans out the dust*

What has it been, 2 months and a bit? Anyway, today I finally have something that is relegated a new section to my original three, but first, an intro. For many years now I've been a somewhat avid player of the card game known as Magic: The Gathering (henceforth known by it's more recognised acronym MTG). I don't know how many members know of it, and then how many have actually played it on top of that, but here's an extremely brief explanation.

The players represent super powerful mages, using spells from any (or none) of the five colours of mana; White (W), Blue (U), Black (B), Red (R) and Green (G). Each colour has it's own themes, the things they do well and the things they don't. Spells manifest themselves in anything ranging from powerful creatures, epic spells, quirky artifacts and a myriad of other things. I'd go over the rules but to explain every intricacy of them would maybe equate to the Homestuck explanation.

By now, you probably know where I'm going with this. For those of you who haven't worked it out, I present to you a little project of mine. Using the mechanics and layout of MTG, I've begun adapting characters and other things of the forum into card form, naming this simply MTG: PRG. Every so often I'll be posting the designs of the cards and such (by which I mean not card art), and maybe the reasoning behind certain choices. These cards have no external balancing with already existing cards and some are either internally broken or can easily form a broken combo. Due to the fact that these are only the rules text and such, this unfortunately might make the cards absolutely meaningless and/or confusing to those who know nothing of the game. Part of me wants to ignore that but for the sake of it I'll be linking the MTG Salvation wiki in the first post for those who want to learn more. Anyway, for now I'm showing off five cards, all but one having popped up in skype over the last week and having been viewed by their namesakes. As always, enjoy.

Onwards to the next five, the faster I put these up the better, maybe. Also slight updates made to Up, Amayari and Giest.
