You know you want to commission me, because I'm super cheap.
$4.50 for a character (+$1 for each additional character/body)
$7.50 for a full image with background
And throw in an extra $5 for characters with this level of fur-detail:
One thing that's been bothering me about all these resurrected movies/TV shows isn't simply the pandering to 80s/90s nostalgia. It's the fact that when they bring back all our old heroes, ALL of their their implied happily-ever-afters are undone to show the characters as washed-up, disillusioned has-beens. Star Wars, Ghostbusters Afterlife, and Star Trek Picard are all guilty of this. (To be fair, I enjoyed GBA, but not so much the depiction of the original team as has-beens.) One, maybe two examples of this could be handwaved as coincidence, but when they're all doing it? I think it speaks to the disillusionment of our times. And I get it, the real world is dark and depressing right now, the writers might just be capturing the spirit of the failed promises of our times. But on the other hand, franchises with space wizards and laser swords, ghost exterminators, and space utopias are ESCAPISM, that's the whole point. So why would I want the depressing circumstances of reality leaking
Strange Magic: A Post-Apocalypse Fantasy RPG
400 years from now, our world is no longer our world. The human race never reached the stars. Instead, it found itself invaded from a world sideways in time. Out of a rift spilled out refugees from a crumbling reality; elves, dwarves, and all manner of species that humans had thought fictional, suddenly were very real, and very dangerous. Humanity did not welcome the newcomers with open arms. Instead, they tried to expel the other races, and the other races fought back. In the ensuing wars, the maps were redrawn. And the human race found itself as just one of many living on the Earth. New powers reign, peace is precarious, and magic is wild and unreliable as it struggles to find its niche in the physical laws of our realm. Still, sometimes races can be coaxed into uneasy coexistence. Trade and commerce still bring people together, especially in Wayward City--once a port town for pirates, now a sprawling urban area with advanced technology and advanced
New RPG Idea
I'm getting the old itch to try starting up a new Play-By-Post RPG and it probably will keep nagging at the back of my head til I at least give it a shot. The basic premise would be that a cross-dimensional rift let a bunch of fantasy races spill out into our world. There were wars, of course, and the maps have been redrawn. Humanity now shares the Earth with other races, some areas are Wakandan sci fi utopias, some areas are Mad Max wastelands, some are more medieval in standard of living these days, and everything in between. I'm reaching out to anyone and everyone who might be interested. If you are, let me know and I'll at you to the group chat I've set up on Discord. This could be your chance at helping establish the fundamentals of a whole new sandbox to play in.
An Author Isn't Entitled to Readers
I had an experience today that reminded me of an "incident" in the Transformers fandom about a decade ago. A new writer had just taken over the comics, and his first issue... did not inspire confidence, to put it mildly. Previous events were described in direct contradiction to how they played out in prior stories, and many of the characters behaved so wildly out of character that later on they had to release a one-shot to try to justify the disparity for one character in particular. After the first issue came out, the author did a Q&A, and I remember he addressed my question about the characterization... by saying we didn't have a right to judge his work after only one issue, and we needed to buy more comics before we could make up our minds. (He also said something about "the whale didn't show up in Moby Dick til the end," which like... if you're going to compare your work to one of the most iconic pieces of English literature of all time, you should at least have read
