Sprite character WIP by Ashura01
Sprite character WIP
just a little thing I started working on earlier today, I decided I'd like to try my hand at sprite work, and so, this megaman style character was born.

So, I was looking through my art folder the other day and saw my original idea for this character, and i just thought, "I can do better than that." Well here he is, and I'm rather pleased at how this turned out.

Matt Smith Caricature by Ashura01
Matt Smith Caricature
My most recent project for life drawing was to find reference pictures of a celebrity and create a caricature of them, so I decided to do one of the man that got me into Doctor Who in the first place. XD I think it turned out great!

Alright so I know that this is going to make some people upset, and I apologize for that, but I have to speak my mind. I've been following the whole gamergate situation for the past couple of weeks and I read something today that has made me very very angry.

Why am I so angry you may ask? Well, it's because since I support the idea of journalistic integrity in the video game industry, I am automatically a misogynist neckbeard racist pedophile who is literally worse than ISIS.

I am angry because the mere fact that I disagree with Anita Sarkesian
is proof that I am part of a patriarchy that is oppressing women, I am angry because my opinion apparently so worthless and without merit, that the opposition to gamergate is attempting to take this issue to the Supreme court of the united states, and get legislation enacted that will end up censoring any dissent. blogjob.com/…/gamergate-…

I am angry because I just found out today that the International Game Developers association has endorsed a twitter application that automatically blocks people who use that gamergate hashtag, AND EVERYONE WHO FOLLOWS THEM, regardless of weather or not they have ever used the hashtag themselves. This is absolutely ridiculous, Kentucky fried Chicken is on this blocklist, as is the chairman of the Puerto Rican chapter of the IDGA.

According to their wikipedia article "the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) is the professional association for over 12,000 
video and computer game developers worldwide. It is incorporated in the United States as a non-profit organization. 
Its stated mission is "To advance the careers and enhance the lives of game developers by connecting members with their peers, 
promoting professional development, and advocating on issues that affect the developer community."

Obviously this means that they are a pretty big deal for the industry. Some game developers have come out in support of gamergate's stated goal of journalistic integrity in gaming journalism and have been added to this list. In essence this means that these game developers have been BLACKLISTED. All a potential employer has to do is look at this list and they will see that these people apparently support a hate group and they will end up not getting a job, or LOOSING THEIR JOB. This is CENSORSHIP, plain and simple, and it's high time somebody did something about it.

Saw your uploads, left some notes, and edited my entry to explain tanooks appearance in yours. Awesome work other than what I noted!

Done my part, kind of afterthoughts of tanook taking place after he meets Nightwolf. Tell me what you think of it as a whole!

Sorry, yeah I got it but I've been really distracted lately. Sorry about that. As for your question, sure. I'd love to have the two meet.

great, I have him meeting a few sequentially in my written chapter about him. Any ideas on how the meeting starts/goes? How do they run into each other? Who starts the conversation?

hm... I'm not sure. Being a werewolf, Ethan tends to read up on other "mythological" creatures so he might already have a fairly good idea as to what Tanook is, other than that I'm drawing a blank
