Design Physics: The Fundamental states of shapesWhen I first started trying to unravel the mysteries of Eastern Mecha designs, I took a very scientific approach, I tried to figure out all the states a SHape could exist in. Why? When designing a shape to be harmonious as a whole, you run into principles like "Similar < Different" and/or "Similar > Different." Neutral is possible, but I'll get into that much later. At first, I had counted Black and White relationships individually, and the amount of states a shape could exist in grew in number... The primary reason why you want to know the total that shapes can exist in is when you need to replicate a shape/design and redistribute it elsewhere and then change it slightly, whether it's smaller, an additional shape, and negative space/cut out, or detail. Doing this replication and redistribution allows for a more through and complete look for the design and makes the designs harmony stronger, and choosing the best state to put the replication means you don't have to come up with a
Something BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG in the works...Somethings' brew'n in the skies... Ya'll are gonna dig it... Ya'll gonna want it... Mmmhmmm... If you get it, more will follow, I promise... Yup... 'Yo gunna want dis... Might even get a few for your friends... Or to have it in another color... Mmmhmmmm...Enjoy the following cryptic message: Thanks to the internet and many new revolutionary industries with revolutionary equipment, us little folk in the art world can finally have a voice, we can even see our arts be 3D printed which allows us to hold our art like a child; and our art becomes a reality, and easily shared across the world...I'm strapped for cash atm, but I have a few things that can help alleviate this before too awful long... Maybe in about a month things will stabilize and I'll have some bucks to throw in for something supremely awesome... Maybe sooner... Seriously... You'll dig it. My advice... Save up some cash, $35-40 might be ideal; dunno still working on that sum, but I promise you'll be able to afford it... You'
Responsibility with Power: The Issues of WritingWriting Sci-fi is something I love. But... As I've grown older, it's become less and less of an escape from our current time period, and I soon find myself conflicted. I love it for it's science. I can travel to any Planet, I can cross Dimensions and Universes, I can weild limitless powers, I can control time and those who cross it, etc. My writing though is a definite reflection of my current society, and it typically deals with War; I do have my Cartoons that show the innocence of youth, and such, but for the most part my science fiction is war based.When writing Brim Star, it started out as something awesome, in addtion I was totally driven by the story; and yes, my own art. But, there's one thing my mind does well in terms of Writing, and that's predicting events. When you've got a Story that's an Epic and is governed by high technology the complexities increase exponentially and so does the technology. I foresaw terrible things... I saw people who I deeply admired be pith aginst
Delays, delays, delays...Dear friends, family, fans, and students. There's been a total lack of any updates for nearly a year on my end with my current endeavors fora variety or reasons, none of them are great sad to say. Money is a big issue, another is my regular anxiety attacks, eating disorder, and depression that comes and goes. 'Something I've been battling for many years now. The last few years have been particularly challenging, and last year was no different. I had several events effect me creatively as old fears (lack of money) soon arose again after a prior event that was supposed to solve all the others. THis would not have happened were it not for treachery amongst my family. And with that, I feel that little more needs to be said on the subject, the rest I'm sure you can ascertain.Titan 2110s Black Veil is still under development, but I admit I'm not exactly 100% focused on it at the moment, but in the coming weeks I should be picking it up again. I aim to open a Paetron page to help fund it's d

On hiatus.....Things sure have slowed down almost to a complete stop for me, much of it relates to my moods and how my body has been feeling lately.Since June, I've been getting more and more anemic, and it's been hard to do anything. Writing, Drawing, Playing + Writing music. All of it has gradually become uninteresting and gives off little liberation. My health also isn't what it used to be, and I think once I get the money it's time to get some things checked and straightened out...In conjunction, there has been good things in the summer despite the lack of accomplished works, but rather than naming them I can name 1 inhibitor, I purchased Natural Selection 2 for 75% off (~$7) and have been hooked on it for some time, not only is it very fun, but it takes time to master cause of it's steep learning curves and I've been going to bed at odd hours.I've been keeping my eye on a local Indy-Gam-Dev studio and I'm gonna try to get into that, but for now I'm keeping its name hush-hush. Their game is f
