This was certainly a surprise. If you remember my last post here, I had done a piece for Moon Studio’s #OriValentine giveaway. Turns out I actually won a prize! They sent it out in the mail for me, which arrived a short bit ago.

 

Until I got these, I had no idea merchandising for this game was really a thing. Stuff’s pretty cool; snazzy pin, little napkin packet and a spiffy journal. Mom actually likes this journal a whole lot, and likes the character art on the front!

 

I also got my name listed on their site, which is also pretty amazing. A big thank you to you guys, I’m glad you liked my doodle of Ori going giddy over coffee.

I almost missed this one, but was browsing Twitter one night when I saw that Moon Studios were having a giveaway, in which they’d hand out some Ori-themed merchandise based on who submitted artwork. They’d pick some they like, then give those winners a prize. I never tried entering my art in contests like this (I always thought I was subpar and kind of still do), but I just decided to try something and get a piece out there.

 

This was the final result. I wasn’t too happy on the background but the overall piece was all right. I definitely liked the concept! So I entered it into the competition. We’ll see how it goes.

 

EDIT: Wow. I actually got selected and won a prize! This is just mind-blowing and completely floored me. I never expected to actually win something out of this. Thank you so much, Moon Studios. You guys are awesome!

 

You can check out my prize here. I also got listed on the developer’s site as a contest winner!

Well, its time I start doing this again.

A little over a week ago, I was approached by an author by the name of Sophia Ahn with a request; to give an honest review about their book in the style of my regular book review. While this is something I didn’t really start to consider till recently, I happily obliged. I did need to restart my content and this was definitely a welcome assignment to do something different!

So, with that said, let’s get started and take a look at Sophia’s book.

Last year I got to interview William from PetiteGames about his projects. At the time a comic was supposed to accompany the interview (making light of the abrupt piano “death” sound in Midnight) but was lost due to a corrupt PSD. Due to some hardships in 2017 I never got around to drawing this myself, so I asked my friend Christina for help with this. She was glad to, and we got finally done at the beginning of the year.

 

Do enjoy, and keep an eye out for William’s stuff on the Nintendo Wii store!
