sorry for being so late with this one. I was playing video games...cause you know. I actually play some god damn games every once in awhile...cut me some sla... hey wait, what am I apologizing for?

Anyway, today, I called my buddy now ex buddy that I lent all my 360 games to when I had an epic tragedy with my old xbox. 12 games. if they were all new, that would be 720 bucks. Probably could replace them for 300. THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID REPLACE.

What did the little peckerwood do?

"Why Ceark, did he trade them in?"

no... worse.

"Why Ceark, did he sell them for drug money?"

no... worse.

"Why Ceark, did he lose them or fuck up the discs?"

no... worse.

"Why Ceark, did he give him to some broad that was only using him in pathetic attempt to get some but not only failed at scoring but failed in life and friendship by being an epic asshole and giving away valued possessions entrusted to him by someone else?"

wow, you guys are smart! that's exactly what happened.

ok enough ranting.

new feature: contest rules will stay on the recaps until they expire.

Also, on the SEQ photo contest, The judging is gonna be point based. I will award points based on a number of criteria and select the winner. Also, deadline extended till Monday morning. I will dock 1 point per day from this point on though, for a late entry (I believe one or two people still had entries, so if it's epic you still have a chance)

As I mentioned before, I'm working on a rather time consuming personal art project. This will be share with you guys when it's done, so that's why there's no art from me recently.

I've also been planning ahead for a series of articles I'm going to write, which Hamza graciously said he would proof read for me (and maybe Colette) because I suck at writing. This series will be titled "The Art of the Game" and will be an in depth look at every step of the process of Game/Film development from the artistic side, covering alot of terminology that you guys might not know but may have heard of, the commercially available software that's used (obviously i'm not gonna post shit about proprietary stuff), and generally just helping to educate the community into what really goes into a game (from the art side, I don't know a whole lot about the programming/management/PR side). The articles will cover the following: Asset Creation (Modeling), UVs, Surfacing, Shaders, Rigging, Key Frame Animation, Mocap Animation, Lighting, Matte Painting, FX, Rendering, Compositing, Concept, Gameplay Design, Level Design/Layout, UI Design, and a few other articles as well.

so somehow while I was editting this, I deleted like the lower 1/3 of my links. fortunately, we all know reaprar's internet is really fast so he helped me figure out which ones I deleted.
just a side note, I may have missed a few today because of this whole debacle. so if you think I'm missing something let me know.
