Hey guys long time no see! Happy New Year for everyone! I hope you all get a 2015 even better than 2014 was (or a great year anyway if 2014 didn't go so hot for you)!
It's been quite a while since i last wrote a journal, hasn't it! How is everyone? First off, I'd like to thank people who are still around and check the stuff I upload now and then, I don't acknowledge it much because I'm often busy with drawing or work (looking for one now actually) or life stuff, but know I appreciate a lot when people check my stuff and watch and comment and all that, and I try to respond everyone even if it takes a long while sometimes! And if there's a lot of drawings in my gallery, it's partially because of you guys who like and give support!
I'd also like to say hi to everyone who started watching me lately, my page wasn't always this uneventful, and I don't think it will ever again be as busy as it was at its peak but I'll do try to make it more busy than it's been so there's more stuff to check on frequently, and also I'm grateful that you chose to watch me!
Now, I believe that, for the most part, I think most my watchers do so because of my pokémon gijinka art... aaand there's a good chunk on them already in this page (300+ I believe, not counting my pokémon gijinka OCs) but hey, I hope that's not enough for you, since I've been, you guess, working on even more!
I've been working double time to bring you a new bunch of gijinkas and, even though it will still take a few weeks until I start uploading them here, I'd like to write about these a little!
Well there's gonna be a whole bunch of them, about half of them will be Unova pokémon that should have been the last time around but I never finished back them (mostly the ones after Zoroark in the Unova dex) and the other half, you guessed it, Kalos pokémon (late to the party!). I'm still working on them, but I'm trying to design the gijinkas more like I design my OCs, so I think this will pay off in the final pictures even if it means taking longer to finish the whole thing... I hope you all will like it!
And to finish... my thoughts on the new pokémon games!
First, Pokémon X & Y. I played Y version cause I think Yveltal is more cool-looking. Game is pretty cool, Kalos region look its on flavour of pokémon and I dig this idea that each region is inspired by a different country, I know it's nothing new on this franchise but I think they perfected it in the new games, which the looks of the environments and music matching so well. It also has a huge variety of creatures, which is awesome, but the actually new ones are very few, and I'm not a huge fan of many of the new creatures, specially the starters (though they do evolve into cool looking creatures). Other creatures look pretty cool but are kinda weak... but oh well I suppose that's not a big deal for gijinkas.
Then there's Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby... I went for Alpha Sapphire version, and I don't know if it's my impression, it was the quickest pokémon game i've ever played, finishing in under 50 hours. It's still a lot of time of course but I remember taking around 90-100 hours for past games. Maybe it's because I didn't change my team so much this time around, or the infamous Exp. Share that make your creatures stronger super fast, but anyway... the region is still pretty cool, with lots of green and seas, I actually liked the surfing parts and diving and stuff, it may have to do that I find sea creatures interesting! Also, flying around in a Latias/Latios is pretty fun! As a downside, variety of pokémon is kinda lame, but after the last gym they ramp up the amount of pokémon available so I guess it's ok.
Also I'd like to show off saying I got the total of 715 different pokémon in this game, completing the standard Pokédex and then some!
Well, that's all for now, thanks guys, I hope you stick around (I promise I'll try to make it worth), and that you all have a great 2015!
Also, list of my favourite and most played 2014 games for apparently no reason whatsoever (I didn't draw much last year so this is as close to a restropective as it can get)!
