I spent this past weekend with a bunch of college buddies. We were all in the Anime Club, so we did a lot of anime/game related stuff... like playing the Naruto Gamecube game. Now, as everyone knows, the coolness of ninjas is rivaled only by the coolness of pirates (if you have issue with this, take it up on the forums), so the game was a blast. As with all fighters, it's best when played with a group, so it definitely fit the occasion. The highlights were the mixed team 4 person mode and the variety of attacks the characters had (if you're not familiar with Naruto, you probably won't understand much of the rest of this post... sorry... Go read some Naruto!)

So, as with most console fighters, there is a health bar, and a charge bar. Depending on how much charge you have, you can execute special attacks. Well, the main charm for this game is the various attacks of the characters. For example, Naruto has his shadow replication attack and Sakura's special has her "inner self" beating down on your opponent. For all you Rock Lee fans, you can actually open all his gates and execute one of the cheapest attacks I've ever seen in a fighting game (don't even get me started on Guy's special attack... it's... just wrong). However, my favorite attack wasn't a special at all... you can actually get Naruto to pull of his "temptation" jutsu technique. Unfortunately, you can't combine it with the replication attack to make the harem jutsu. Oh well, I guess you can't have it all.


Hey hey. I haven't written a rant since late March. Time just seems to fly by.

Unfortunately I've been kind of scatterbrained lately, and it probably won't go away anytime soon. Just so people know, I'm trying to work on my portfolio. I haven't done anything for it since I graduated college which was over two years ago and I'm kind of having a hard time with it. It's just that recently it sort of hit me that I should be doing so much more with my life right now. It seems like the art world is littered with highly talented people years younger than myself who are getting all the jobs that I've always wanted. And here I am, sitting on my butt.......waiting. For what, I'm not even sure, but I'm kind of depressed over not having taken more initiative over the years. I feel like my talents have become a bit stagnant and that I haven't grown enough as an artist over the years. And so I guess I'm just trying to get myself back on my feet so to speak. Right now the two most important things to me are to get my portfolio presentation-ready again and to get my website back up to date before the end of the year (preferably before the end of the fall, but well...). So if I'm MIA these days, it's cause I'm a bit distracted. I wish I had more time for the comic, and I do try to get some extra stuff done once in a while, but right now this is the most important thing to me. My hope is that once I do get this stuff done, I'll be able to go back to devoting more time to Eidolic Fringe and do things like get more covers and art done, and some of the other stuff that I talked about a while ago. But I do promise to keep the comic going on schedule (though the updates are now basically Monday night :| ).
