on style

The reason for this entry? I'll get to it in a second. First I'd like to mention one or two other things, though.   Like the question what a 'style' actually is. A way of dressing? Wearing only certain kind of accessory? Personal taste or trying to fit into a group? Maybe a bit of all of those things. Of course, what you wear or look like often influences the first impression people get of you. No wait, actually pretty much all the time. So what someone decides to wear should reflect what they'r

Bzpower Artist Interview #1 - Dwanny

The first one's there already? Why yes, it is. I hope you've been anticipating this as much as I have... And before we start, I would like to thank Dwannyfor taking the time to put up with me and my slight scatterbrained-ness, and all those I've pestered with pms. ^^'   So without any further ado, here's the interview!   1. When and why did you start drawing?   I really started drawing when I was three, drawing pirates, dinosaurs and the like. After a while, I realised that people liked what I

'Evolution' of... guess :D

Was inspired by Akaku: Master of Flight (how everyone does this fancy tagging, I have no idea :/ ) to make a timeline of my character over the years. So I did that. [regular link, until I figure out how to link thumbnails ^^] (~800kB) I couldn't find anything for 2011, so either I really didn't draw her in that year or I lost the scanned files. Don't feel like digging through my myriad or sketchbooks though, so I'll leave it blank for now. I know that especially around 2008-2009 the

Fantasy Rpgs

Are extreme fun. Which means I'll acquire more of them in the future... aaaand since my sis enjoys them too, we'll be having much fun.   So... yay for ultra-feminine hobbies, I guess.

Bzpower Artist Interview #2 - Gavla

That's right, it's time for another artist interview. This time with a brilliant comic artist - Gavla! (Thanks a lot for taking the time for the interview, and for making that awesome banner! =D) So here it is!     When and why did you start making comics?   I was really bored one night. I felt like doing something to pass the time before bed. I had been reading a lot of comics in Artwork III and thought I'd give it a shot. So I did, and I'm glad I did. I started in April 2008. April 8th 2008, I

2012 Colouring Tutorial

"2012 tutorial" because I might make more of these in the future, who knows.   Aaanyways, here you go!   < click to enlarge [~570 kB] Feedback would be more than kind, and I hope it helps! =D (and I know there are some typos... D: Sorry.)

bad habits

Getting rid of them is surprisingly hard. So is changing eating habits. :/ Something of the sort is necessary though, because at the current rate of developments I can see the destination of the travel, and that's.... not where I'd like to be. In more clear words: I really need to lose weight. Got a plan figured out though, and I'm sticking to it. Still, it's a bit of an annoying topic for me. I mean no, I don't think I'm ugly or anything, and yes, I've always been on the heavier side, but this

Mafia 0: Suggestion - final writeup and call for mentors

Edit: 11/16/2013 bumped because may still be relevant :3   So here's the re-written suggestion for the BZPower Mafia Mentoring System. (or BZPMMS xD) For the moment I'd suggest we organize this via the blogs.   If you find any errors or things that need yet to be clarified, just let me know! =3   If you are willing to participate in this as a mentor, plase leave a comment or throw me a pm.   Congrats you've found the hidden secret!

Ask me anything

I've never, ever done one of these things in all the time I've been a member of this site. Always wanted to, though. So, now. Ask and ye shall receive (answers).

describing what's real with what's imaginary

Imaginary (also complex) numbers will never cease to amaze me; they're non-existant, yet come in handy when describing oscillating stuff and other real things. ^^   Apart from that, you don't happyn* to know any math puns, do you? 8D       *should have been 'happen' but I love the typo. xD Also I'm totally bad at writing about stuff like this

The 100th "self-portrait"

Ah idk I don't want to always just post every single redesign of my char to GA, that feels kinda spammy. So I'll just leave the sketch here. Actually I was out for some urban sketching yesterday, but after finding out that BZPower is back up - let's say I was inspired, and that happens so rarely these days that I let myself get distracted About the sketch itself, it was as always done in ballpoint pen, because I actually like that better than the regular pencil these days. ^^' Doesn't sm

2004 was almost 11 years ago

... D: 2004 was also the year when my interest in Bionicle truly began to blossom. (as in, collecting sets regularly and actually following the storyline).   What. How.

Uncertain What To Do

... draw something? Listen to music? Browse the forums? Finally try to finish that RPG where I'm once again stuck in the middle of the game?   Probably the latter, because I already got the sequel, which I won't allow myself to install before I haven't finished the other game... I mean, otherwise I'll never get anything done. ><   See, that's what happens if you love RPGs but are a sort of mediocre/unexperienced/okay, maybe bad player.   EDIT: OH YEAH finally got around that. ^^

You know what I really dislike about glasses?

You have to clean them. All. The. Time. Every other day, almost. Or you wait for weeks until they are so covered in dust that your vision is somewhat obstructed, then marvel at the freshly cleaned vision, then forget again. Either way, it's far from perfect. :3

You know what sometimes annoys me?

I've never been all too fond of people comparing my drawings to rage faces or other memes. It annoys me greatly, because it makes me feel like my stuff is not original at all. Sure, that's kinda the risk someone takes when abstracting heavily, because a circle will always look like a circle. Stickmen look like people. Emoticons like faces.   Still. ._.   Anyone else feeling like this? :/

Okay, looks like we are back?

Huh, that's good to know! (actually, I am delighted, but trying to play it cool. Working? I doubt it.) What have I been up to in the meantime? Mostly on holidays, and preparing for the new semster, as I decided to go back to uni - this time studying informatics. After all, I did pass the entrance exam, and may actually be able to skip some basic math lectures. That would be great. Oh yes, and I am playing Pathfinder with a group of friends now, dunno if I already mentioned it before.

RPG logic

NPC: "You have to hurry, the fate of the world depends on your being on time!" Hero: "Alright!"   *does several irrelevant sidequests* *polishes chainmail* *buys a new helmet* *buys some healing potions* *checks every corner of the dungeon, explores every dead end* *opens all treasure chests on the way* *goes back to make sure they didn't miss out on anything*   *eventually gets to where they ought to have gone* *enemy apparently waited for several hours to commence* *finally saves the day*   NP
