Collateral is finally on Steam!...

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 24, 2014, 5:16 PM


...Early Access. Yay.

Click here to go to Collateral's Steam store page!

I know that quite a few games have sullied quite a few peoples opinions on Early Access, but we've made strides to make sure Collateral is in a good playable state for early adopters. Most of the gameplay is finished-ish, but the narrative is still being largely put together.

If you guys are interested then you're money's going towards a good place, i.e. keeping us going/proving there's somebody out there that would buy this cra- OH LOOK. EXPLOSIONS!

Allira's Honeypot (WIP) by Mark-MrHiDE-Patten
Allira's Honeypot (WIP)
Long time no submit anything. It's a work in progress but it's just something I whipped up in the spur of the moment after a while of sitting on the idea. Generally this came to me after playing Trails in Tainted space and there is a race of goo people.

Hope to clean up the lines, add in some more depth, maybe some translucency background, etc.

Internal Conflict.

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 6, 2014, 8:30 PM


As many of you are now doubt aware (all two, great!) then you'll have noticed that I've only drawn 1 piece all year, and coloured a few others.

Generally this can be traced to a couple of things, getting heavily into Warframe, distracting me and moving out forcing me to fend for myself wholesale whilst starting up a business. 

Generally though if you desire something and want to do it, nothing should stand in your way, if there's something you want to do you find time to do it. 

Ergo, I've hot a slump where I really don't want to draw. Is it that I'm simply exhausted from producing at work, scrutinising my work to the point where I can't proceed, or what the people want to see me draw is not what I want to draw.

I honestly see a fair amount of deviantART users being praised and applauded for pandering to the cheapest common denominator. Where skill is only a fraction of what matters as opposed to what it contains. 
I'm tired of pandering, I want to move beyond that crap, I'm not a teenager anymore, I want to create work with depth and designs to awe, not cheap smut.

Or maybe this line of thought is only temporary, just something I'm plucking out in the moment. But I'm tormented by this conflict of wanting to produce for the masses and yet I don't like what the masses like. 

I can't seem to find an audience to show my work to these days. Maybe that's the problem, drew the audience, the feedback, the lot of it, create without care for who sees it. But then why draw or create when I already have it drawn internally, it's all already there, it's satisfying to share.

I am a snake eating his own tail, I take and taken from without end.
It's not a productive frame of mind.
