    Ah, yes, I have something in the works that I hope will change that in the near future. Getting more active users is the key...

    I find the Internet to be fairly quiet if you stay away from the trouble spots. Steam for instance gets a lot of posts but IMO the quality if not that great. Twitter seems to be the popular spot but I stay away from there. I love nothing more than a good discussion but am finding that hard these days. Seems as if you disagree with someone lately they take it as a personal insult.

    I made some friends here with people I disagreed with. One friend of mine described a discussion as a conversation among friends trying to arrive at the truth. Sometimes it is just an exchange of differing view points.

    I disagree with people on principle even if I'm not actually representing my personal point of view. There's just nothing interesting about a discussion where people agree with each other. :D

    I disagree with you on principle. It is possible to have a discussion where people are not so much disagreeing as simply giving their personal opinions. These can be very interesting and valuable discussions.

    (Couldn't resist that but there is a core of truth in what I say. That is my opinion.)

    Ha, you call that a circlejerk I call it trying to confuse the other fellow. If the other guy has no idea what you are talking about you win by default. :confused::borg:

    After a long period of procrastination, I'm slowly waking up and gaining some motivation to get stuff done. Mostly thanks to the recent rainy period that caused a temperature drop. Hopefully, I'll finish what needs doing before the next heat wave hits and I regress to my passive state.

    One of these days I'll pack up my sh*t and move someplace colder. Yep, any day now...

    I am having a period of not gaming. I used to run to the store for every RPG, but now, I don't even have Witcher 3.

    You don't even have Witcher 3?! What's wrong with you? :p

    I don't have Witcher 3 either. It's not <5 EUR yet. :shake:

    There are these rare moments in my life when I'm severely depressed and hypermotivated at the same time.

    It's a really weird feeling...

    "Don't hit your brother that hard with the sword!" was not a parental comment I ever thought I'd make ... I was obviously wrong.

    Really? Seems like a common lesson, along with, "Stop throwing cars at your sister!" and, "No monsters at the dinner table!"

    I keep getting stuck on painting my new NPC's portrait. I haven't been able to get into painting for the last few years and it's kinda throwing a wrench in my plans.

    Couple that with the fact that my software and tablet are completely different than what I was used to and you get a project that's been dead for like 8 years.

    Well, it took me all week, but I'm finally satisfied with it. It's still not perfect, but I was starting to go crazy and the details will be lost once I resize it anyway. What do you guys think?

    I suppose it's worth noting that this is my first time ever painting leather. I gave up at the end and did the texture in GIMP with filters but I think it turned out alright.

    Also, props if you can still tell who the model was. I did a pretty accurate trace of his face, so there should be a modest amount of resemblance. :shake:

    That's pretty good, my only complaint would be the irises as the colour's too unnatural.

    That's by design. It needed to be a standard human eye color but not a shade usually found in nature.

    It's actually the first clue that there's something not quite right about him. Nice catch. ;)
