Getting out of the simple portrait structure turns into quite a pain in the ass when it comes to composing a scenario with character movement, specially if I have to color it. So much I haven't gotten out of that formula in some time, at least not in digital art, although pencils are easier since they provide a much wider range of grays and pressure sensibilitylitylitylity.

Now I gotta select a mood that fits the mood of this post, oh man...

I'll go wth :O since it just screams "I so shouldn't be posting right now"

hey everyone seen that unreal engine thing? check it out here. i downloaded it, and since i'm no coder, i can't really understand any of the code or anything at all really, but i'm probably gonna learn it a bit so i can fiddle around with it.

bet some of you coders could make some crazy good games with that

It is good news. Problem is if you amke a game that gets over $5,000 then you have to give them a 25% cut. But all things considered it's a really good opportunity.
On that subject Unity3D is now free for non-commercial use.

Did anyone try this thing out? It's almost unbelievable how he He "guesses" right almost every single time :O

But just almost, they must have a huge database with answers as most characters have been played a couple thousands of times. Still, it's really clever use of that data.

Yeah, it's really good. Was so impressed when it got the moon for Majora's Mask!
Unfortunately, it never seems to guess right when I want to show it off to anyone else -_-

I would have bet $1000.00 he wouldn't have gotten "John Doe" from Se7en, and he did. How in the fuck??

I have not before, seems like a good site as well, but I think I'm more impressed by Akinator though. 20q is divided into quite limiting categories, while Akinator often guess right among a huge amount of people with always the same set of questions :)

I do think that A cheats a little though, perhaps by looking up the location of the user's IP for example (he often asked me very early on if the character was Swedish).

Ah that's kinda clever. Macthing IP's to what people are trying.

20Q has many more modes then just the classic, it has a character one too :)

He does sometimes ask me if he's french, but I don't think he does it any more often than japapanese, swedish, american, and english; so I wouldn't go as far as blaming it for cheating.

Maybe it just means that a bigger percentage of the characters in the database are from the countries above.

I would add some basic shadowing, and possibly some small detail. (Moss/cracks..ect)

K cool.

idk really but if it then add a huge crowd above and make sure that the floor is like filled with blood of the other contestant/warriors/opponents also to make sure that the audience (crowd) is eye candy give em some signs saying some shit! also it DOES kinda look plain but if you add
some broken cracks in the walls or broken shit then it wontbe too plain
if i were you id put those very small details even tho NOBODy gives a shit about them but im sure
its a gr8 experience for your drawing dev. and prolly the respect of artists or viewers saying "yo that was nice game oh btw i really liked the audience looked so gr8! "
all in all its lookinn pretty ace yea

Well of coure I'll have to add details, just wanted to know if the structure itself without anything isn't boring. K thanks for those suggestions I'll keep em in mind.
Sadly, it isn't a colliseum, it will probably be better to notice once its finished. So I guess I'll get back to work now.
