I took quite a bit of computer graphics while I was in college, but I have to say that doing it for a job would be horrible for me...and that is only because I would hate for it to ever be something "I have to" do. I like to be able to enjoy it when I want to do it. That was one of the "bigger" graphics I have worked with in a little bit. I guess I am kinda weird on how I do graphics; I start with little in mind, usually, and go with the flow...and what comes out sometimes even surprises myself...lol.
Anyway, I have been playing on another game site a bit. I am not going to name it, and it's pretty much nothing like Wizard101. I just needed a change of pace here and there, also an escape from some of the in-game tension/expectations as well as boredom lately. I hope I am wrong in the feeling that Celestia coming out will be a while still.
It's sorta sad; they gave us that pre-quest to the Warehouse, plus there was the Pet Pavilion, but once you have done those so much it gets to be as old feeling as the rest.
I have a newb running right now and I am not going to name him because I have no intention on keeping him as a permanent wizard. He is pretty much just something to work on, in the spiral, when I don't feel like the same old farming, etc. I will run him to GM, delete him, keep his pet, use it for breeding, then start another....most likely.
It's nice to have alternative games to turn to, though, when your others are in a bit of a lull. I know Mr. Thomas Lionblood(The Friendly Necromancer) would completely understand that. I thought it was awesome to hear he was playing Free Realms! Unfortunately I have done that game to the point where I really have little to nothing else I can do with it. I am still hoping SoE might get their act together on that and expand the lands, maybe get some new quests to go with those. It was something that had been talked about long ago and anyone that was there at the beginning knows; it's way past due by now.
At the same time, I am letting you know I am doing other games, I don't want anyone thinking I have quit Wizard101 or anything, I haven't. I'm just not ITS as much as I have been. But I do get on and check in. Alric got Luis his hat a few days ago, plus Alric and Dani collected 3 Skeletal Warrior pets while farming Snowcrusher...plus Luis will have an extra hat due to that farming.
|One of two of the hats dropped to Alric for Luis.|
|This really makes Dani's third Skeletal Warrior drop, as she has got one before. All Skeleton pets have been given to young Esmee.|
|Score 1 for the boys as Alric got this Skeletal Warrior Pet to give to Val.|
Also, I am still working on the Vampire Twins, who are in Hametsu Village right now. They also, recently, did Sunken City, which though it wasn't hard, it was tedious with having no AoE. Yes, I am playing these guys without "cheating." I never made any scarecrows for them before the enhanced cards were taken away...so they really are using what they have for their level. Part of their purpose was really to show people that two single-attack wizards could handle the major challenges of the game.
So, while letting you know all that, I also wanted to provide the Vampire Twins' battle against Grubb in Sunken City on video here:
So, with that all said; I hope you are all having a great week and a beautiful August!...
And I WILL see you in the Spiral!
