Machinima VS Destructoid

So I made this after reading a tweet from Hamza over at Destructoid. The tweet can be found here: It's meant as a joke, nothing more. I bear no ill will towards Machinima in any way! But if I may quote Hamza, "Suck it Machinima!"

Everything was modeled by me. There doesn't seem to be a Machinima font online anywhere that I could find, so I had to remake it myself from scratch.

Not so Fun Fact: I came up with a hypothesis on how they made their intro sequence... I don't think it's really 3D. I think it was all done in a program like After Effects. There's just too many things that don't seem to add up when looking at it. Then again, I could be completely wrong.

I got almost all the sound effects from a website called: The intro sounds are from the real Machinima intro and the laugh at the end... well if you don't know... shame on you!

Well I hope you enjoyed the little animation. I had fun making it.

Also, if there's a trick to embedding a video in this blog instead of it showing up as a link, please let me know! :)   read

Mr. Destructoid 3D Head model!

So I've been working on an animation for Destructoid for a little while now. In it I modeled Mr. Destructoid's head in 3D. All I had to go off of was some pictures of the actual helmet, and some feedback from various DToid staff.

Well they now have a new Mr. Destructoid helmet and I wanted to make an updated 3D model to represent the new helmet. So here's a couple of renders of the new 3D model to be used in the animation.

What do you guys think?

Talking to Women about Adventure Time!

Well I've never posted anything here before, so I thought I'd share this here with everyone since it's related to one of Destructoid's Editors, Jonathan Holmes.

We all know that he's a fan of the show, Adventure Time. I personally have never seen the show before. I have nothing against it, I just don't have cable tv and therefore can't watch it. But that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the fact that many people do love and watch the show!

Jonathan Holmes has been a very generous person to me and has allowed me to work with him on certain projects. (And I'll hopefully be able to work with him on a few more!) I've been extremely lucky to have done so. As a Thank You to him and to fans of things I've done because of him, I wanted to make something I thought he might appreciate. Since I've recently gotten a new (well new to me anyway) tablet pc, I've decided to try my hand at some digitally hand drawn art. I'm not a great artist, but that doesn't mean I can't try. So here's one of the first pieces of art I've made by hand in a looong time. Hopefully, I'll get better and feel confident to continue to make and share more.

This was inspired by Jonathan Holmes's series, Talking to Women about Video Games, Adventure Time, and a drawing of Holmes interviewing the lady with the Hulk hands by Lindsay Collins (@linzb0t). I hope everyone enjoys it. :)
