Hey!! I've just gotten the clear to launch the RUDRA kickstarter and we'll be going live this Tuesday! (in 2 days!)

With the kickstarter ready to go, it was finally time to draw a winner for the commission raffle! There were roughly 20 entrants between patreon and deviantart. I designated each person a number and selected 1 at random. The winner ended up being Shawn from patreon: www.patreon.com/user/creators?…

The art will of course be posted here on deviantart too :). Thanks to everyone that expressed interest in RUDRA and signed up for the mailing list. Please look forward to the kickstarter trailer which shows a whole bunch of new gameplay that you haven't seen before! :D

Unsurprisingly my redbubble shop is having a sale on black friday. They seem to have one every week, but this is probably the best I’ve seen:

35% off hoodies and sweatshirts. 20% off everything else. Just use the code:
 BLKFRIDAY

Most of my best stuff on here is on a shirt, poster, phone case, clock, etc. You can check out the full gallery below. Thanks!

Another year, another thousand or so drawings to work on. Later 2015!


Feel free to comment here or on the youtubes. The quality isn't great, but I think it's a nice early taste. :)
As usual, you can learn more on the ol' patreon: www.patreon.com/hybridmink
I guess I haven't tried updating a submission with thumbnails in a while, but apparently you can't do that without a core/premium membership now? What's more, you can't actually add media without a membership either. With the ever dwindling presence of artists on deviantart these days, you'd think they would cater more towards a better free experience than gradually taking away features Animal Farm style and pushing people away.

I still like my DA community the most, but this is pretty stupid and it's hard to say if I'll be as active on here a year from now.
Hey! I'm working on a drawing right now and it somehow popped into my head that I spend a lot of time on faces, but always end up shrinking the character way down for the final. Are there any drawings of mine that you'd like to see a close-up of the face? My average canvas size is around 6000 pixels tall, but I only export the image at 900. This means I have tons of portraits I could effectively post on here if anyone's interested. :)

I was thinking my recent Lucina, Palutena, and Rosalina. Any ideas? Should I even bother? I'll probably throw some up on the store as well.

Thanks!

I believe this is today only so if you’re interested in any of my recent Smash Bros or original drawings thrown onto stuff like phone cases, posters, shirts, mugs, or whatever; you can head over to my shop and use the following code to get 20% off anything and everything!

It recently came to my attention that redbubble now supports graphic t-shirts. I immediately thought they looked way cooler than the standard shirts so I went back and set up graphic tees for almost everything in the shop. All of the Smash Bros characters were done and the big collage of everyone looks pretty cool. There’s a small sample below, Check them out!

I've updated the Project Rudra patreon once again. This time you can find lots of colored animations for Zetch and Tomoe, as well as enemies and level concept art. I also reworded a lot of the text to make the game a bit easier to understand and shed some light on more gameplay mechanics. Check it out if you're interested in what I spend almost all day every day working on.

The current build is very close to a point where I'll be happy to show off some video. Truth be told, I actually HAVE recorded video, but the quality was lousy and a bunch of moves are still broken. If you have any suggestions for pristine quality video capturing, let me know!

Oh and um, if you'd like to help, you can always donate to the patreon too. Thanks!

Hey guys. Since there doesn't seem to be a way to search for a creator by name in Mario Maker, I decided I'd post a couple codes from the levels I've made so far. If you'd like, you can then tap on my name and follow me. Star/comment if you like em! Here's the codes:

1771-0000-002A-B1F9
C472-0000-0023-A971

3ABF-0000-0067-947B

*update, added another code. Currently capped at 10 uploads :(
Send me a note if you're interested. Money is tight, but I need me some metal gear. (or pay some bills, whatever comes first)
Hey everybody! It seems I'm getting pretty close to 6 digits on pageviews. Some people like to do the whole "kiriban" thing but I think it makes more sense to let EVERYBODY decide what I should draw as a form of thanks for all the support over the years. I'm going to put up a poll every every day for a few days (not sure how many of these I'll need) and you can vote on what you'd like me to draw! The poll will be up for 24 hours and then the next one goes up.

Get to voting! The vote is not a suggestion, I will draw what wins. :)



P.S. I'm probably not going to draw anything from Rudra. I don't post a lot here, but I'm drawing those guys every single day...

I've reached a point where I'm happy with the first 3 acts of Project: Rudra so I've decided to upload my designs to patreon. You can check out how I've designed the introductory levels for Zetch and Tomoe to get players immediately acquainted with their myriad of abilities. There's also a handy key to the side that details a lot of the mechanics and pick-ups in the game. If you're interested, click the link below! A couple things to note:

-this is not environment concept art, it's level design on a grid. 
-a minimum $1 pledge is required to see the images. Thanks!

Well I've put this off long enough. Here's what I thought about E3 in sort of chronological order.

Bethesda:
Dishonored looks cool. That is a LOT of Fallout. I don't really care about anything else you're showing but you are all cool guys.

Microsoft:
Best conference you've ever put on (now I'm talking to them apparently). People care WAY too much about backwards compatibility. I only cared when it meant my old games would be doing the upscaling rather than my TV. Oh well. Re-core looks pretty cool. The guys that screwed up the "Megaman Prime" reboot working with the guy that's known for Megaman games?! Boy I really hope Tomb Raider actually does come to PC or PS4 because I don't want to buy an Xbone just yet...Oh but Gears 4 might actually do it if enough of my friends will be playing online. A solid showing overall.

EA:
The best part of this conference was reading the twitch comments between people that respected Pele and the kids that made fun of him. "lol you're old! Can't wait for Mirror's Edge and Mass Effect. Too bad most of your time was wasted on sports. Don't care too much about need for speed or star wars. At least this gave me time to make lunch!

Ubisoft:
Droppin dem f-bombs. Usually the most cringeworthy conference every year, it wasn't too bad this time. But I don't really care about tactical shooters so...

Sony:
Oh god, it's all here. A decade's worth of rumors crushed. Last Guardian looks like a game made by that team. Give it to me now. Shenmue 3 kickstarter? Ok that's a little weird but I can honestly see why and I respect them for giving it stage time. FFVII? Really? Well I guess it's what the fans want. Maybe now they can finally play their average rpg and complain about how they NEVER should have done it. Still a really exciting announcement regardless.

Of course they also had my personal game of the show with Horizon. Post apocalyptic world with prehistoric robots and a bow as your main weapon? Shut up and...yeah you know. Now as for all the awesome games coming to PS4 this year I ----HEY WAIT A MINUTE!

Nintendo:
I LOVE Muppets. Muppet Miyamoto was spot on. Starfox looks cool despite some of the textures being really bland and low res. Shut up you entitled internet children, it doesn't look like an N64 game. Mario Maker still looks awesome but you really should have just shown more games like Fatal Frame and that indie f-zero clone instead. Let's not talk about that "metroid" game please. I don't care if it's fun, you KNOW what people really want...Jerks. At least that new Mario rpg looks sweet.

Lousy conference aside, Nintendo actually has the most games I'm going to buy this year. I need Xenoblade RIGHT NOW.

SquareEnix:
I love how they keep trolling people on FFVII and Kingdom Hearts. As a 30 year old man, it warms my heart to see a much OLDER man dangle the 2 things people want the most out in front of them, only to take it back and laugh heartily about it. (I'll probably buy both of those games for the record). Deux Ex looks cool of course. Other than that, the conference itself was pretty boring. I listened to most of it but I liked the Star Ocean footage and the prospect of a new studio with a poorly chosen name. Seriously, "factory" does not imply good things.

PC:
wow.


So that's it for the conferences. I hear the big deal this year was the buttloads of VR stuff. I can't comment on that as I wasn't there but some day I will play it and weigh in on it. Overall E3 was pretty great this year. As a Nintendo fan, I was really disappointed and kind of shocked at the lack of announcements. I originally thought we'd have a solid 2 more years with the Wii U, but now I feel like they're saving Metroid and pulling a Twilight Princess with the next Zelda. They'd be stupid not too. 

If you'd like to reply to my thoughts, please keep it significantly shorter than what I've done here. I need to get back to work...Thanks!

Wip Preview Gif by hybridmink

Here’s a WIP shot of an animation I just finished up. You can check out the finished version over here: www.patreon.com/creation?hid=1…

There are some things about Project: Rudra that I’d like to keep secret until the game is finished. At the same time, I really want to share them with others right now! So I’ve decided to post spoilery type stuff for my Patreon supporters. I haven’t provided much of a thanks for them thus far, so I’m going to start posting exclusive animations and artwork over on Patreon.

I will still post plenty of animations on my tumblr (with finished ones over here), so I’m not really holding back anything. This way a select few can still give me feedback on this stuff. If you aren’t sure what Project Rudra is all about, you can learn more at the link below. Thanks!

Liberation Discharge Characters By Kosushi-d8k6l8c by hybridmink



:iconknockoutsushi: has been working on a game called Liberation Discharge for the past year and he's just got his site up and running. You can check out the site right here: 

rapidreflex.ipbhost.com/

He promises outstanding admins/mods that consist of very respectful, friendly, and professional individuals. The pixel art is looking pretty cool to me so check out the link if you're interested.


Samus Pack by hybridmink

I started a shop on gumroad! Zero Suit Samus is easily the most popular character that I've drawn, so I decided to pack them all up into one HD package! The files are uncompressed and between 4000 to 6000 pixels talls. Right now I'm experimenting with pricing so you can get all 6 right now for $9, or suggest a price that you think fits! 
Sales help me continue working on Project: Rudra. :)

gum.co/samus



I've been on this site for a while now and I just have to wonder how many of my watchers are still around. Let me know if you're here!

Or don't. It's a free internet.
