Anonymous said: Do you know that "twarda" literally means "hard" in polish?

I laughted at this because I’m Polish omg. *must resist putting Nicolas Cage You Don’t Say meme* Yes I do know.

The nickname derived from my surname, actually, and in this meaning it is closer to ‘tough’. And after all those years I think of it more as a noun (not as an adjective).

It took me exactly 1 month. Long story short: our country didn’t get the shiny creation trio event so I began soft resetting for them. I have Dialga, Giratina and I decided to give up with shiny Palkia (the only way I can get it is by Arceus event in Heart Gold which just takes about 5 minutes). I can’t wait to transfer them to XY along with other pokemon from Hoenn (RSE) with updated ribbons.

Here you have video of the process: link. It took me way too long, about 3 hours, I must work to make my paintings even quicker!

DeviantArt picture.

Less or more failed sketches: horses and a car. I often draw at Main Square.

Youtube once again butchered the framerate. Good job guys and goodbye 60 FPS video.

Ahem, this is the playthrough of Zniw Adventure (demo version).
It shows most of the game mechanics and playstyle, as well as the first two locations. Some minor spoilers with hidden stuff and puzzle solutions, but it’s barely the beginning of the game, so nothing to worry about. Hope you like it!

Just as Crash said. I hope you enjoy the playthrough video from our little project.

LOOK AT THIS MAGNIFICENT PIECE OF HARDWARE I GOT NOT SO LONG TIME AGO. For some time I really wanted to own Atari 2600. The wooden system would be even more grand (and expensive) but this one is awesome too! The joystick sucks and I need find a replacement but for now it’s good enough to play the games. It came with 5 games and I enjoy them. Damn, those pixel squares and rainbow blasts.

If I’m not mistaken, I do believe Sega Genesis controllers are actually compatible, so if you’re needing a new controller for playing the system and have one handy, you can use that. Though it’s not the same as playing with a joystick of course!

Thanks! Sega Genesis controllers are indeed compatible and I plan getting one someday.

Another bearded dragon, I tried do it as fast as I can but I kinda failed. A study of this photo: x by dingelientje-stock.deviantart.com I got lazy with limbs keke.

Done in GIMP, dunno about the time because I had many breaks (too long for sure!).

Aaaaaand it sukcs, lol.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice app: it can use up to 5 manageable layers, has many useful tools, supports hard pixels or antialiasing (whatever you like), etc but it has some things that gets in a way.
You can’t make frame page big. You just can’t.
You can’t go into Clean Mode without any frames.
Frames are definitive areas (they works like separated canvases) and you cannot put anything that will cross through them (eg. tail of a bubble).
There is no flip button. I abuse flipping/mirroring and I would prefer it over the undo button.
The file size is too small! I worked with pixels at times, instead working with drawings.
Tools aren’t perfect: text is either too big or too small with no inbetween, simply cuting something and moving around causes quality loss, pencil ‘lags’ and makes straight lines instead of curves when moving too fast etc etc
This app is not for paintings. Sure, you can try and do something nice but you will spend a lot of time on it, just like in MS Paint.
The interface is clumsy at times and the color… “wheel” seems to be buggy.
Add to this my ridiculously inaccurate touch screen and you can be sure you will have some irritating time with this software. But despite all those things mentioned I still think it’s worth checking. Note: it does not support 3D effect.
5/10.

This was done like year ago. Done in GIMP. It was sitting in my drafts for so long time that I forgot about it.
PS, this is one of those NSFW drawings my blog’s description warns you about.

Finished colored sketch. I’m working on this now. Dunno when I finish.

Fail sketches: cars. I draw cars because I can’t draw them, ok?

I did this 2 weeks ago while waiting for a bus. It’s obviously unfinished. Done on Nintendo 3DS using Colors! 3D app.

tentalones said: my sister had a venus flytrap but she didnt make sure to give it the right type of water and it ended up dying….

Yes: clean/pure water is important. I already got the distiled water so I hope it will be ok for it. Too bad that your sister’s plant didn’t make it.

Meet Ferdynand, the recent addition to my family! I bought it this Sunday when I was at Silesia ZOO with Crash. I think I have 2-3 plants in the pot with biggest being ‘parent’. I read a lot about them to make sure I can take care of it and I hope it will make through the dormacy stage. Yesterday it caught two Attagenus smirnovi (unfortunately I’m living with the beetles) and it seems it began digesting them succesfuly. I’m not sure if I should clean the traps though, as you can see they got some dirt, plants and possibly remains of previous hapless meals.
