Expanding Kaiser Lore

One of the most annoying things about fleshing out these World War II inspired factions is that there isn't enough territory in the setting to go around. I mean we've got America, the UK, Germany, France, Japan, etcetera. There are only a handful of habitable worlds,...

Thumbnails Finished

The thumbnails for the Admiral Hipper, Cosmo Messer F2, and the KM-3s missile are finished. A bit rushed but they all look decent enough, especially the F2. Have a look. I also squished the frames a little to give the subjects more screen space. Once again, I think...

Cosmo Messer F2 Progress

It's pretty much finished. Unfortunately there are still some workshop related things I need to do and I don't quite have enough time for all of that tonight. Hopefully I'll have it sorted by tomorrow or sometime in the middle of the week, but if not, next weekend at...

Small Update 7/19

by | Jul 19, 2022 | Adobe, Books, Fresco, Journal, Premiere Pro

Since nothing noteworthy happened today I’m just going to leave a few comments about what I’m hoping to get sorted by the end of the month.

Premiere Pro

I need more practice with video editing, so by late August I want to have at least a couple of new videos in the Video section. It’s not just going to be World of Warships replays. I’m branching out from here even if I have to reach a little. That portfolio’s not going to be built on gaming clips. Not exclusively.


This is one of the Adobe programs I’m trying out. It’s working with my stylus well enough, but there’s always a free alternative like SAi if I can’t get the results I want. I’m not too worried about that, though. By this weekend I’ll post whatever test art I’ve made.


Another Adobe program, a DAW I’m hoping I’ll have time to at least poke around in this week or next. I haven’t worked on music in ages and I’m not sure that will change any time soon, but if it does, it’ll have something to do with Audition. For now I’m just hoping to try it out and see if it’s the right fit for something down the road.

I can’t afford an illustrator, so it’s not like I can afford a composer, either.

Not yet~


Still reading through it and so far it’s really good. It’s nice to feel a certain way naturally and not be ramrodded toward it like in some kinds of media. It’s also nice to see the effort and I’ll be putting in just as much.

What I’m not sure on is whether I’ll be able to catch up and finish the book by the end of July. I’m only a third of the way through so things are only just starting to really heat up on Arrakis. I’m not sure if it’s better to let this month’s read stretch a bit into August by going at my own pace or pick a couple of days out to try and finish it on time.

A question for later, maybe.


That’s it for now. Let’s see how things look by this weekend.

Begin (2024)

2023 ended weirdly abruptly for me, but I got the shot in the arm I needed in order to hit the ground running in 2024. This year's going to be absolutely crazy, but for me personally, I feel my worst years are finally behind me. I'm ready to stop drowning in a sea of...
