Should unfinished art be left alone?



Should unfinished art be left alone?

I ask this question, but more importantly with the word Art because I believe this applies to anything rather than just on specifics.

The image you see below is a before and after shot of the same drawing. I drew this drawing back in 2002. If I remember correctly I was 18yrs old at TAFE in the back of a lecture drawing this. Most of my drawings like these have come from lectures. Let’s just say they sure make you pass the time[/font] :)


Anyways I could not finish this drawing. Back then I stopped at the waist. I believe I had trouble on the positioning of the legs and the creativity involved of what minute details I wanted to add. Therefore I said stuff it, I don't want to fiddle with it and screw it up. Yes I'm somewhat of a perfectionist, mind you though that this drawing back then to me was considered a decent drawing. I can see certain faults a lot more now then I did then.

I put this drawing neatly away into a plastic sheeted folder...

Every year that passed I would open the folder and keep looking at it, saying to myself that one day I would/should finish it, but couldn't still quite work out on how I would go about it.

I realized the problem with unfinished work was;
  • my drawing style has changed
  • the way I thought about drawing now
  • feelings and mind-set I had then aren't the same now
  • I was in-the-moment back then
So until NOW, I forcefully decided to draw the rest of the drawing. Reason being was that there was a competition not long ago that I realized this character I drew was a perfect candidate for the competition submission.

I only had one night, barely an hour to finish this drawing...

While I was finishing the last pieces, certain parts I just couldn't put together. I just in a way sluggishly put mediocre details here and there. What I found in the end product were that my lines and shading were rough and just did not have the same tune of drawing I did back then.

I'm not upset or anything. I'm curiously questioning whether this drawing was meant to be that drawing that was to be unfinished, the so called armless woman if you know what I mean. Left to the imagination of what could've,would've, should've been.

Or is it plain to see that I just rushed it and was not concentrating. :P

So what are your thoughts on this matter? Have you guys ever come across an Art piece you did not finish and whether you decide to finish it off or not?

Here are a few more unfinished works within that time-line untouched :)

Official Tatsunoko Vs Capcom Arcade Stick Competition






I was very anxious after sending my entry in on the actual last day of the deadline!

I didn't know if my entry was still able to be accepted, nor if the email with the entry got through properly.

As I waited until the news of the winners being announced, I held my breath as I viewed the page. As I scrolled down slowly after reading every sentence, I saw one winner; Ali, which I knew that was  EXC355UM who was one of the late entry contenders. His work was epic incredible and I had a queasy feeling that other people may of went all-out with designated company characters.

Then just scrolling down a bit further I saw a white-ish picture with a Wii logo on the top right and immediately was dazed with confusion and excitement and had to recollect my thought to make sure if that was my entry.

And it was! I won! That beautiful expensive fighting stick :thumbsup:

I just couldn't believe it. This actually made my day that morning as I had just finished night shift work and I was not feeling too great.

As the back story on how I ended up with Chuck Norris as my final piece; It all started with thinking of anyone that is not first-hand game related. So I ended up with 3 ideas.

The Lord Of The Rings VS. Capcom
Futurama VS. Capcom
Chuck Norris VS. Capcom

At first I loved the first 2 ideas, only because I had heaps of characters to work with. But I had my work cut out if I had chosen The Lord Of The Rings. Therefore Futurama would be the better choice.

But for some reason I thought nah, its just another cartoon. It would've been the same thing as if I did Family Guy or The Simpsons. I could get creative with the characters but I felt it wouldn't have that extra [b]POW[/b] power.

Chuck Norris felt as the best option but at the same time a bit of a gamble. The reason I chose Chuck Norris was because of its obvious highly characterized meme of "You cant mess with Chuck Norris" thing and finally because he is a bad-ass.

Therefore it perfectly would suit the whole "who would VS. Capcom" concept, and a great concept at that I thought. Because it would be the whole Capcom crew (the ones for the Tatsunko VS. Capcom) against Chuck Norris with the perfect sub-heading of Chuck Norris being his own and only Ultimate All-Star as the icing on the cake.

Anyways that's pretty much how I ended up with Chuck Norris.

Lastly, I would like to specially thank Vooks for presenting the competition and another special thanks to THQ for providing the prize. Also everyone who entered. Much appreciated.

PS. I am deeply curious to what the other entries where. Also I felt like pretending my "Chuck Norris VS. Capcom" was a real game and considered posting it in the recent buys thread ;D

What Better Way To Keep Important Dates

It has been busy in the last few weeks. So many things going on and happenings that you start to forget what’s next etc.

 

Where do I start? Well in a nutshell;

 

- I’ve just been advised that I am eligible to graduate from my degree

- Our house that were building has been delayed till August

- I have been doing various freelance wedding photo works for friends of friends

- Looking at and discussing moving plans from here for now until August

- I have an anniversary of a family friend to go to

- I have a friend’s weeding soon also which we need to decide on a present

- E-von’s Birthday is coming up but celebrating it 3 times (ourselves, family and friends)

 

Luckily now I have a diary for all this now. I have never really been a diary person, but E-von decided to get this for my b’day knowing that she could have got me something else. But I was actually happy she got me this instead :)

 

I have jotted down all important dates etc. I found it a bit hard to use the diary at the start but I think you have to push yourself to write something at the end of the day if need be.

 

Anyways I can now start to be a little more organized with my important dates that would otherwise slip away from my head.

Seriously....



(Extracted from the site...)

When undercover investigators made their way onto Chinese fur farms recently, they found that many animals are still alive and struggling desperately when workers flip them onto their backs or hang them up by their legs or tails to skin them. When workers on these farms begin to cut the skin and fur from an animal's leg, the free limbs kick and writhe. Workers stomp on the necks and heads of animals who struggle too hard to allow a clean cut. When the fur is finally peeled off over the animals' heads, their naked, bloody bodies are thrown onto a pile of those who have gone before them. Some are still alive, breathing in ragged gasps and blinking slowly. Some of the animals' hearts are still beating five to 10 minutes after they are skinned. One investigator recorded a skinned raccoon dog on the heap of carcasses who had enough strength to lift his bloodied head and stare into the camera.

Before they are skinned alive, animals are pulled from their cages and thrown to the ground; workers bludgeon them with metal rods or slam them on hard surfaces, causing broken bones and convulsions but not always immediate death. Animals watch helplessly as workers make their way down the row.

Undercover investigators from Swiss Animal Protection/EAST International recently toured fur farms in China's Hebei Province, and it quickly became clear why outsiders are banned from visiting. There are no regulations governing fur farms in China—farmers can house and slaughter animals however they see fit—meaning miserable lives and excruciating deaths. The investigators found horrors beyond their worst imaginings and concluded, "Conditions on Chinese fur farms make a mockery of the most elementary animal welfare standards. In their lives and their unspeakable deaths, these animals have been denied even the simplest acts of kindness."

On these farms, foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals pace and shiver in outdoor wire cages, exposed to driving rain, freezing nights, and, at other times, scorching sun. Mother animals, who are driven crazy from rough handling and intense confinement and have nowhere to hide while giving birth, often kill their babies after delivering litters. Disease and injuries are widespread, and animals suffering from anxiety-induced psychosis chew on their own limbs and throw themselves repeatedly against the cage bars.

The globalization of the fur trade has made it impossible to know where fur products come from. Skins move through international auction houses and are purchased and distributed to manufacturers around the world, and finished goods are often exported. China supplies more than half of the finished fur garments imported for sale in the United States. Even if a fur garment's label says it was made in a European country, the animals were likely raised and slaughtered elsewhere—possibly on an unregulated Chinese fur farm.

Because a fur's origin can't be traced, anyone who wears any fur at all shares the blame for the horrific conditions on Chinese fur farms. The only way to prevent such unimaginable cruelty is never to wear any fur.

The Double Edged Sword As A Casual Worker

Not long ago at work, I have just recently been omitted a whole extra night shift pay due to an apparent failure of doing my job. I realized it was my fault that could’ve been avoided. Basically my boss asked me to train a new person on my shift and told me to go by “her” way of doing the work. Now everybody knows that the best way is your way. So what I stupidly did was tell the new person my way of work. Seeing as how this person was new I should have realized either way that the person won’t learn. By the time the boss arrived to check up; the new person (didn’t necessarily snitch on me) said the wrong words to her as if to say that I did not show the boss’s way. The person even mentioned my way was better (which was true because everything was done).

 

This totally fucked me up. Bosses never want to hear that their way is shit. Anyways I fucked up and I guess it was a matter of time (not because of my actions) before little problems such as new staff to teach, new bosses, new methods of working; all add up and try to disrupt the whole scheme of things.

 

So as a casual, you don’t get any rights, get fired on the spot and they can change your hours at will. So for those of you that live the casual way of work at the moment I want to address the scheme I am in and how it works.

 

Being a casual is great. But learning the way in which you master the so called “Casual-Scheme” is genius. Now everyone knows being a casual has its demerits i.e. no holidays, no sick leave etc. But the golden merit is its payout. One casual job can be great if you “can” receive more than 12hrs. But since this is more than unlikely, the scheme comes into play when you have more than one casual job.

 

What you want to do is find for example 3 jobs with each only letting you work no more than 12hrs each. That comes to 36hrs! This is nearly equivalent to full-time hours. You obviously then need to make sure each job does not in anyway interfere with the next job i.e. shift time elapses’ and to even shift to another shift too quickly.

 

The most important aspect of the scheme is this; you have to remember the protection and the keeping of the same days and shift hours, which comes down to how well you maintain your relationship with staff (especially your bosses) and most importantly your standard of work. I’m not saying to become a douche bag and suck up to everyone and bust your back head over for the company.

 

You want to try to keep up the status quo with your work and keep your relationship with workers to a professional standard level. IF any of these falls under or is maintained poorly, the scheme collapses as easy as London Bridge.

 

Anyways since the incident now, I have been cut hours from 16hrs to 8hrs. I only have this one job right now. At first it annoyed me because it killed my funds of $300 a week to a mere $120. The shift they omitted from me had the Sunday double time work penalty rate load (basically getting $50 an hour!!!) But now I’m not fussed. Since I will stop this scheme now for a standard full time job, somewhere in the graphic design/Illustration business this year.

 

But for now, I may just get my hours back as long as I get my focus back on the game and reap the rewards. The double-edged sword wields both sides of ups and downs. Right now its down but will surly go back up in the future as its happened before.

 

PS. If any one wants to know I used to have 4 casual jobs at one time….and yes the money was unbelievable.

Super Smash Brawl Epic Tournament

I attended my Lil' brothers house a.k.a my Mum's house :) , for an Epic 2 day Gaming tournament. The main battle arena was the Super Smash Brawl tournament and the minors were supposed to be MarioKart wii and Pokemon.

I unfortunately couldn't attend the 2nd day, as I had work that night. I came around 11am. The invite was an early 10am. When I arrived, David's friend and I were the only ones there. A supposed 7 people were coming. Funnily enough no one could make it that day, until tomorrow. Diego actually arrived unexpectedly, which was great, and luckily enough another friend arrived. Nonetheless we still started the Brawl tourney consisting only of 5 players >.>

We had trouble at the start, because we were trying to figure out how we would set up the tourney tree with only 5 players and the length of the process. So in the end we decided to do a 3 phase tournament. This was where the overall winner out of the 3 tourneys would be granted his place in the grand final. The people who won in the 3 semis would then be in the playoffs to be in the preliminary grand final and then the winner of that playing 1vs1 in the ultimate glorious grand final (if that makes any sense).

Overall, I was the dark horse; everyone thought I was going to be over shadowed by my other two brothers Diego and Lil'Dave. The only reason this was seen otherwise, was because I choked in the Nintendo Connection Tour earlier this year :( Other than that, I don't play brawl as much as I would like, but I do play the odd game now and then.

The funny thing though is that my skill is an unbelievable force to be reckon with, and not to sound up myself or better than anyone, I can still hold my own under people who play brawl 24/7 somewhat like my younger brother Lil Dave. Diego on the other hand is like me too, yet we both have seen ourselves as the greatest threats and rivalries. Anyways back to the other players, they were no more than mere obstacles in the way :P, not to say they were bad, but they were no where near than us, far superior 3 brothers. That being said, never underestimate shit players as I know what can happen especially from that Nintendo Connection Tour :(

Overall the playing field was on par, against us 3 brothers. It was either a win or a loss in each phase. Diego somewhat surprisingly won 2 of the 3 phase tourneys in the end, leaving him with a spot in the grand final with his hot favourite Ike.

It came down to Lil'Dave and me for that spot in the preliminary grand finals resulting in a win to him. I wasn't too fussed, I was pretty happy with myself in respect to what I said earlier; He used cough**HAX**cough, Solid Snake against my awesome Marth.

Especially Diego giving me shit about how he can beat me every time (which was true for most of the time) but not until this tourney was had. I actually showed more promise than he did in great fighting ability.

It was time for me to go to work; I wasn't able to see the grand final between my 2 brothers. So I don't know what went down :)

Anyways it was a great day; I haven't had as much fun in a long time, and need more of this since the old school days with my gamer friends. :D

You Want To Eat Like A Retard?

Ads trying to portray there product, especially in the food variety.

Just to get there product name out there, they make people hold the food in a very retarded spastic way. The 2 most prominent examples on TV that you see are on the Food Bars (whether it be chocolate or nutritional) and fast foods.

The food bars are held by your hands grasping it as if you where a crustacean crab. Not just that but they make you face your crab like hand away from you so you can show the viewers what your eating.

Lastly any burger, roll, wrap etc. thats shown on TV. Hungry jacks shows a guy grabbing a burger just by his finger tips! LITERALLY!! have you ever tried that, your burger's content will drop like shit everywhere. subways rolls are just as bad, it looks like the person has to nurture it like a baby to eat it. You're not allowed to even get two hands on each end of the roll and wraps are pretty much the same. Except they're usually seen as if you were playing a flute. Who eats their wraps like you were playing the flute?

Seriously, next time you see and ad break in regards to food, look closely as to how they eat it, and try to mimic it. You''ll find out its the most uncomfortable and retarded way.

Anyways, thats my lil' rant regarding how eating food is portrayed. I personally wont let my product make people look like retards. I mean come on, you have enough advertising from just having an on-screen logo next to your product etc.

Your Guide To Game Retailers

For all you gamers out there, especially the bargain hunters. I'm here as your friendly neighborhood Hardcore Gamer :)

To Show justice and the truth behind retail game shops and their overall worth. I will go through most of the stores I believe people usually go to and talk about the 3 most important points you should consider when purchasing from, and any other valuable info I have to offer.

Grab a hot coffee/tea or warm milo, sit back relax and find out whether your favourite store is worth your hard earned cash and trust.



My Overall score will be based on these 3 important points.

Service
basically it will come down to knowledge of the product, whether it be games, consoles, etc. Also friendliness, helping nature. Not as important than the other 2. It doesn't really matter, but its an icing on the cake if you can get a nice overall score with the other 2 points.

Game Condition
Second in importance, to be quite literal, when you buy a brand new game you expect a brand spanking new game not some fucking washed up whore of a game thats been scratched, booklet torn and bended, and a cover thats been chipped, broken and grubby fingers all over it, all then shoved up someone's ass and regurgitated into a stinking pile of dog shit and expect to pay more than what you would pay for a second hand game.

Price
Just..just a bit more important than the condition of a game. So the reason for this being the most important is pretty easy to understand. But funny enough the most overlooked and overestimated point people seem to fall upon. which is why its the most important. In whats all said and done, there will be a difference in what you pay for a game thats really worth a lot less.

this is what you'll see after each retail store, each point marked a possible score out of ten and then the overall score.

Myer 

Technically not your retail gamer, its there because they feel its needed there for the sake of entertainment. Dumb fuckers that serioulsy don't know nothing, don't even bother asking for service because all your talking to are lil bitch fuckers in their myer uniform thinking they know shit. Their games and price ranges' are a pile of shit, but then again it IS Myers. Very rare to see decent games and for a good price. basically its a place to breeze in an out of and hopefully you may get that great offer they "might" have. Best chance for a really good bargain are Christmas or end of year sales.

Toys R Us   

Luckily, I know a guy there (Cannington), who I'm fairly acquainted with but to an extent he cant help me as much as I would like him to.

In the past they had a great price range for their games. But now it seems they are slowly following suit for higher prices.

It has also gotten worse, I'm gonna say its the worst out of all retail places now. This is due to its new system of displaying there games. See, before it was retail code standard to only display 3-5 copies of a game on the shelf, and the rest would be stored away. But now they decided to go put all their stock on display! seriously who's the fuckhead who decided that it would be a brilliant idea?! Apparently the guy I know told me that the upper management thought it be better to free up clutter around the place, and that stealing wouldn't be an issue anymore. wtf? they have cameras everywhere and the games section is in a section of its own. I don't know how the other Toys R Us stores are doing there system.

They do however have a somewhat decent collection of games to choose from. Even though I know a staff member at that store, service is bland. You usually get a ditzy girl or pimply guy you would see from "The Simpsons" (you know who I'm talking about).

Electronics Boutique (a.k.a "EB")   

They are just a bunch of douche bag (mostly pc user based) workers who don't know shit about console gaming. They rip off any casual gamer or parents that don't know any better on how much they should be spending on a game or offer. seriously "buy a PS3 for only $100, but you must give us your Wii/XBOX360 console with like 25 games"! Like what the fuck!?

And to make it worse, these guys are the pioneers when it comes to dodgy trade in deals and buying your games for fucking, fuck all. Makes you feel as if you've been violated.

Basically you have just purchased a brand new highly anticipated game you want to play, lets say you finished the game or just have gotten over it after a good few months, also not to forget that you also paid top fucking dollar with your hard earned cash (that's also if you couldn't be bothered bargain hunting) and finally your the type of person with the philosophy of, "if I don't play it anymore and don't see myself re-playing games for nostalgia etc".

Then you go in thinking, I should be getting at least more than half price for a game that is highly anticipated and has been purchased a few months ago. What happens, 60-70% cut off its retail value. So a game you purchased a month ago for a $100 is now worth $40-30.

I am seriously dropping tidal waves of homeless bum's shit all over these guys already. Service is bad, because they're Pc based fags, they're attitudes also come with, and the whole "I work at EB" shit. the only one good thing I found is that they can somewhat help find a game your looking for. Game conditions pretty good, as long as you ask for a back store copy, you should be fine, otherwise they're display shit is what you're gonna get. Price...Price can suck my chocolate salty balls! Seriously you expect me to pay full RRP (registered retail price) on games that only cost them less than half price. Sounds like they've been sniffing the "lets triple the price" crack.

GameTraders    

Great place...well yes and no. Your nearly 100% guaranteed of finding the game your looking for. They also specialise in oldschool gaming back-catalogues (Gameboy,NES, SNES, Genensis, N64), but chances are you'll be paying a high price for the old school retro games which are most likely hard to find (unless you cant be bothered going on ebay). Which is fair enough I guess.

They undoubtedly have the best customer service on the planet, because they know what the fuck they're talking about. you go in ask about a game, no shit they'll most likely give you all the information you need about the game regarding release dates (worldwide mind you), if its good or shit, and ... price.....yes....price.

This is there fucking downfall. They are just as bad as EB, selling there shit usually 10% more.

I just don't get it with specialty stores, you'd think that since your a specialty store, the games would be cheaper. Because your not buying other shit that your not selling as games.

Their game condition is on par with the likes of EB, standard displays and the rest at the back. They don't have specials, If they do, chances are that they'll be just like EB making you think you got a great deal when in fact you got ripped off.

Big W

Hands down the best place to go, (at the moment). Basically they're the best because they always have a sale at least every second month or on quarterly big sales.not only are they the cheapest but most of the time you get the game still in its original wrapping. Service is shit, but who cares, as long as you know what you're going to get. I could get 2 DS games valued at 110, and get them for a mere 42. So there you go price and condition are a near perfect 10.

they only reason they don't get tens is because of the standard system of stock. when a great game comes out, Big W and other retails wont buy in bulk rather only a handful because they know it may not sell, and that my friend is due to the casual audience who don't know any better and buy the latter of shit thats called shovel ware. Anyways always check their catalogue, good chance of a great deal on a game you may like.

Their choice of games are up there with EB and somewhat gametraders. Prices are also reasonable and most usually can get a great deal. service can be a bitch. everyone knows the JB Hi-Fi mantra, "I'm sooo coool and better than you, because I work at JB". So this would mean that you would be dealing with a lot of douche bags. luckily theres a 50% chance of that not happening. because there are some workers out there, that know there shit and will help you, I know because I used to work at JB. there pretty good with their game conditions, just ask for a back store copy rather than the one they give you thats been dismantled and put in a sleeve which is both game and booklet. And finally price, they seem to do well. not all the time. generally there trick of the trade is when a new release is to be sold, they will most likely put a high price on it. wait a few months and you'll be surprised when you see the prices slash away. Overall I'd say second to Big W.

I just don't get it, its a mix bag for me.

In the end games are seen as another form of entertainment to the public, meaning retailers will not give you that respective pay out to a game thats so fucking rare. Ebay is your best bet.

They don't give a shit about the overall condition as up value only as a condition that it must pass, otherwise they'll charge disc cleaning, booklet torn/missing fee, game cover broken/missing fee.

Worse of all is the nil value you get of a game's actual worth in rarity.


If your like me, and has a collection seriously worth in gaming culture, lets just say its worth in the $XX,XXX and rising over the years. Make sure you have some form of security both inside and out. Because in the end, the sad truth is your games mean nothing through Insurance. Yes they may compensate you with money worth of what a game you would purchase today, but you will never get back that actual game from way back thats out of production.

Anyways back to my point.


As a Veteran Bargain Hunter who wont compromise on both quality and price for games.

I advise these 6 points.


1. Check all retailers and their catalogues and start to learn how they play the game (no pun intended)
2. Also check all Online shops, they can be just as cheap or as expensive; do your research just as you would, referring back to point 1
3. Know your game, rare games are harder to buy cheap and may only come around once. but a well known game, its price will drop down in time.
4. Videogame sites and Forum sites, any game info, release dates, reviews, opinions, its all there so your in the know.
5. Start making friendships/connections with the retail staff member that may help you even more.
6. Price matching, the most fucking best thing ever made for us customers :) but remember to have a current competitors catalogue or if you're good at bluffing it can work also.


Good Luck.......

2009 Will Be The Year For Wii!




For all the Wii and DS owners out there. The time has come for a spectacular year in 09.

Many disgruntled people since the E3 showings have now no reason to be anymore.

The number 1 thing that was never addressed was the notion of hardrive storage space for the Wii. The second gripe was the lack of catalogue of games to come.

All this has now been addressed too. They have now let us use our SD cards to save our wiiware games onto card.

In terms of more games to come. Nintendo have splurged us with new titles for the Wii and DS.

Also for those of you who missed out on the GameCube era, Nintendo have decided to bring back some AAA games in the essence of a new line of gaming selection brand which will be called "Play on Wii".

Now finally for the biggest thing is the new Nintendo DS Lite called the DSi.

Nintendo have said its not trying to compete with the likes of the Apple iPhone, more of expanding to a different audience.

If you read from my earlier post the features it has, its more subjective to more intuitive roles.

Anyways, 2009 will be the year for Nintendo console and handheld owners, check out the trailer below for what you'll be seeing. If your still hanging out for games from now until the end of 2008 I suggest you buy these games as a must;

Okami
No More heroes
Boom Blox
DeBlob
Samba De Amigo
