Sonic Forces: Episode Shadow in over 4 minutes
Finished a new cartoon.
Tried to upload it on Deviantart but I can't, the artstyle makes the file too big and unstable. I would have to upload it in 4 parts and that ruins the pace. Not to mention this cartoon isn't really funny or good but mostly a second test run of this artstyle, so I'm not going to bother.
So if I'll stick to this artstyle, I can't upload on DA anymore, hmm.
Well, not going to do it with every cartoon, anyway. Since I have to draw it on paper, it wastes a lot of paper, will keep IMP at least the old style. Hmm. Still thinking. Anyway, yeah.
The good news is, remember when I joked the reason I changed up the style was because I kept getting "looks like a 2006 video" comments?
On this cartoon, I got a "looks like a video from 2012" comment instead. Yes! I upgraded! Only 6 years behind on the world now, whoo.

Equinox plus Ivara
Most complex artwork based on numerous reference sketches based on numerous screencaps I've painted to date and I kick myself for not wanting to stylize it at least somewhat.

Warframe had been my go-to spot for sexy automatons ever since it became all too obvious that Wildstar would have its plug pulled - and permanently, at that. Seeing how both games were set in their respective hellworlds left in the wake of divinely advanced precursors and their gaudy architecture, it didn't took long for me to adapt - especially considering my lack of initiative towards venturing beyond casual gameplay in this particular timesink.

Warframe and associated products belong to Digital Extremes.

The following documentary includes properly translated english subtitles that can be toggled on using settings icon in the YouTube window.  

Current state of Roman Catholic Church in Poland is a reminder about how centralising conscience and moral concerns of an entire country around a single entity, be it religious or authoritarian in nature, invariably leads to an outcome where such a beacon of traditional values, forced at the expense of anyone even marginally different, serves as a facade behind which most hineous of travesties are being put to form, their perpetrators fully secure in assumption that they are so much more than a common person - especially what with a pedestal they have built for themselves. 

Whereas Catholic Church in other parts of the world is coming to terms with the damage its priests have inflicted upon children, women and infirm, Polish Catholic Church has established its very own exceptionalism as a ground rule that no politician or activist, let alone regular citizen should ever encroach upon. With time, this morbid relationship has gradually led to a quasi-authoritarian government that only EU's other members and governing body prevent from becoming a religious version of an Eastern Bloc-grade government.

With no prospect of Catholic Church being challenged by the state on the grounds of pedophilia, non-existent separation between church and a state, lending aid and ideological backing to neofascist movements, individual organizations and investigators are the ones to set the groundwork for challenging an apathetic mindset of Polish society itself. The following documentary is the bearing fruit of such investigations and crowdfunding made it possible for you and me to watch it free of charge. 

You may ask yourself: "why would I put my fingers into something that is a local concern?". Well, Roman Catholic Church is - at least formally - an organization capable of steering its decentralised parts clear of the way of harm. When Polish Catholic Church fancies itself to be a besieged stronghold that answers to noone, it means that it isn't merely the instance of local part of world-spanning church that isn't working - but rather the instance of entire church being complicit and, ultimately, compromised.

Think tank
This 70cm x 50cm-sized watercolor is a belated work that had been donated just yesterday. Originally themed as an "idea factory", I recreated the concept while completely forgetting about what it precisely was supposed to be called and it wasn't until the moment of delivery when a kind soul, who remembered my original contribution, reminded me in detail about it. 

Since it had been a long time since my last piece, in no small part to several months worth of office crunch, it also enabled me to push myself forward just enough not to be stuck at the previous - or worse! - stage of experience with this medium.

With the right mindset, nothing is more effective at flaying remains of nationalism from ones thoughts than coming into terms that sufficiently fueled patriotic hysteria will inevitably be used for complicity in a disaster affecting millions of lives.

A USA-led summit on the Middle East affairs that our oh-so patriotic government offered to hold here, in Poland, is with no doubt exactly the kind of event that will be cited for ages to come that we - or rather the government that had been elected by our votes and absence thereof alike - left our own brick in an atrocity that has a very high probability of taking place. 

USA had expressed its concerns over supposed hostility of Iranian regime - a hostility that is meant to be treated with peacebuilding and stabilization on behalf on America and its allies. History of American involvement in the Middle East provides a decent outlook on what this supposed peacebuilding entails - an outlook that is kept alive here, in Poland, in no small part due to contribution that had been provided by Polish government at a time when it had been staffed with postcommunists eager to show USA just how much of a valuable ally our country could be. As such, the vestiges of American stabilization model for the MENA region - model, that had our hand in it - entailed shipping troops in the war of aggression against Iraq and supporting a contingent of soldiers to stabilize the ruin that the coalition turned Iraq into. Our generous government, fearful that our NATO membership might not be recognized as much as they would like, went as far as to allow US of A to set up its very own, extraterritorial facilities used for the purpose of processing individuals deemed as a threat - a bold decision at a time when our society began to be confronted with uneasy truth about just how false was our assumption of a national, crystal-clear conscience during the years of serving as a continental colony of Nazi Germany. 

Since 2015 Poland is ruled by nationalistic populists who originally had inherited our involvement on the Iraq soil back when they used to rule as a coalition of three parties. Having no other know-how other than capacity for steering internal political conflict in the way they saw fit, our leaders have destroyed one leverage after another without a single thought, banking on a single ally from beyond Atlantic Ocean that might eventually make the offer our politicians wouldn't refuse. This comes in the aftermath of a Syrian civil war that USA sought to prolong in an attempt to replace one authoritarian leader with an authoritarian leader they could control. This comes at a time when Saudi involvement on the Yemeni soil brought an atrocity of genocidal proportions on these people - an atrocity that quite a few of American warmongering moguls would love to extend till the end. Eventually an offer of becoming useful to Uncle Sam had been extended to us - USA's vice president, Mike Pence, announced that a Middle East summit will be held in Warsaw. Our leaders, instead of dementing this baseless call-out, began to frantically dig around their backsides for anything that could grant form to a wish of a Trump's lackey. Aforementioned summit began today and will continue until tomorrow, yet even before it began it was absolutely clear at whom this meeting will be directed against.

Should American aggression against Iran escalate into a war, then our leaders just turned Poland's capital into a new Wannsee. Of what use is our supposed Christian-catholic 'ethic' if those who claimed to be the most worthy paragons of religious patriotism willingly contribute to what might easily lead to a horrifying loss of human life? Do we really need to become equal to American evangelicals who believe that genocidal conflicts in the Middle East will cause Lord Jesus to rebook his second coming to an earlier date?

At 50x70 cm in size, this vision of hell reimagined compliments its upper half from the previous post. As with the latter, this piece too is essentially an elaborate fanart of Lucasarts' "Afterlife" first published in 1996. Though far more busy than celestial plane of heavenly delights, infernal pits were easier to arrange into a composition - in no small part thanks to in-game punishment buildings being portrayed as structures, rather than depictions of a concept behing its inner works. Which, in turn, is a rather worrying portent about how humanity finds it easier to imagine its own ultimate ruin than even the simplest prospect of salvation.

Wow thank you for the favorite! I am very delighted that you like my drawing, even though yours are more complicated and higher in level of expertise. But if there is one thing in common with both of us, it would be our love for the pokemon Gallade. Cheers :D

What can be said of The Great MC? If the internet is a margarita, he does not salt the glass, but rather, uses sugar. There is no way to reach the bottom of his rosy effervescent depths, the bubbles flow too thick and fast for that. :meow:

Inside, beneath, and between these mysterious high-brow ponderings of low-art delineated by his traditional works... is the work of an understated comic genius, unburdened by the parameters of pretension. He has remixed the dankest vox populi to his own inner tempo, and without imposition; a master's light touch on a heavy-handed subject matter.

Suffice it to say you've been a sight for sore eyes for some years now and you can call yourself one of that top ten percent of all deviants, so says this hedgehog artist :thumbsup:
