I've been drawing these hands because I love drawing them and made a method to easily draw them as they were really hard to draw at first.
They look a bit crappy, but this is - of course - the use of practice.

Influeced by mind, anatomy and reference.
Art by me.
Status' will be move to my Twitter (@RetroJust) because it feels more 'appropriate'. I'll only post here when it's an "actual" status.
Ow the edge, the Klonoa movie got cancelled. It was expected to me, honestly. There was barely any updates on the films, so it kind of make sense.
I've FINALLY modded my Wii U with the purpose of playing the classics. The emulation quality on RetroArch is way better than what Nintendo offers on VC. All I need is to get the games off from the Wii Shop Channel..
I don't usually write journals on this sort of topic, but I kind of want to clarify as to 'why' I gave up retro-gaming collecting as I want to comment my friend about it and as well of (possibly) changing people's minds.

Retro gaming is such a fascinating side of gaming: It's aesthetic, behind-history, the art of its sound that is relation to synths, its replay-playability and of course its niche side of games from companies like Jaleco, Irem, Konami, Sunsoft, Sega, Namco, Data East - to name a few. I'm more fascinated with retro gaming than mainstream gaming, even Nintendo! (which I still admire them, but my interests based on their games are limited). So the logical thing is to be take retro-collecting as a hobby, right? Eh. It happened, for only 2 years. Why? Well here's why...

Companies on these Games - If you want to "morally" buy retro games as apart of a legal minority, then why bother do that? Most companies don't release these games due to their extinction or can't due to their 'financial reasons'. The most popular ones like Nintendo games are always the ones to get a port, so It's justifiable to emulate these games even if it's agaisnt the law; why exchange a game for a kidney transplant when you can just emulate it for FREE.

It's not a Good Investment - Games are usually too expensive to collect and it will continue to rise its prices, and the games won't last very long by the need of the console to play the games. They have their own lifespan to live, too, and making the valubility not worth-it as the console will eventually die, making the game worthless to play.

Ouside Aesthetic on the Games - This maybe a stupid excuse, but if game-carts and disk(c)s won't work with consoles anymore, they don't have a 'aesthetic' to them like that of art-pieces or action figures, at least - they're just pieces of material with a front sticker that it's just either a cropped cover of the game's cover or the title. I would recommend collecting CIBs or magazines of these games instead, as they include more and, of course don't need power.

As for Myself... - I need to focus myself on my future-self that I want to be, which being an artist of animation and a composer; I need some dough to invest on my talents like art with its supplies and since I got a Nintendo Switch, I haven't invested on high-priced games for awhile, so I want the new upcoming games that are coming to that system.
As for my hobbies, I'm going to collect for archives instead like CIBs, magazines, as I got plenty of these from my Nintendo magazines and Gameboy Advance CIBs to post them to my PolyStarsArchives account on DA (by the way, that account has been dead fo a while 'cause I need a higher-quallity printer).

By no means, I'm going to lose my interest into retro gaming, It'll always be in my heart. Just collecting as a whole.

Hey man, I'm currently working on a Namco-related documentary, and I was wondering if you would be interested in helping me out with this? Here's what I've done so far.

1) This made me laugh and wonder why as April's Fool happened like, months ago. Lol.
2) Before I clicked the link, I was thinking that it was obvious that you weren't going to do that, since contacting the acknowledgers of Namco would've been hard to contact, especially that we are not niche filmmakers.

I meant like a fanmade documentary on YouTube, not some huge costly thing for Netflix.
Although that would actually be pretty cool.
