I’m back with three new illustrations that are available on Dreamstime and four other microstock sites. It’s dragon time!
I’m still working on my dragon designs and animations for the top-down strategy game, however, I took some time off to draw a few vector portraits of dragons from normal persective. I’m thinking about compiling them into a set of avatars that I could offer in my Unity 3D store – of course, I’d have a free lite version.
Here’s my orange dragon emperor:
After long thinking, I’ve come to the decision. Here’s the content of my last Facebook post:
I’ll be leaving and deleting my Facebook within a few days. It won’t happen because I’m a fan of Alex Jones or InfoWars – I’m not, in fact, I don’t like people like him, and I find his show to be very lowbrow and even ‘idiotic’.
The truth is that I’ve been thinking about leaving this platform for three years. What happened yesterday was just a culmination of it. It reminded why I felt the necessity to leave.
Facebook is a private company, and they can do whatever they want, however, I find their application of ‘different rules for different people’ disturbing. Also, I didn’t forget about the meeting Mark Zuckerberg had with German Chancellor Angela Merkel three years ago. He seemed happy to oblige her, and he’s been using this platform to spy on people ever since. In fact, since then other governments have asked him to do the same, and Facebook always cooperated.
What I find the most disturbing, and even heinous, is their cooperation with totalitarian regimes. A year ago, the progressivism screeching people in leadership of Facebook seemed all too happy to oblige Pakistani government in their prosecution of a 30-year-old man. By criticizing Islam, he committed blasphemy and was sentenced to death. I believe that people at Facebook are accomplices in judicial murder. Thanks to my geographical location, I’m not allowed to say on this platform that if you’re born a man, you can’t ever become a woman. That would be hate speech. On the other side, Facebook appeases regimes that execute people that I’m supposedly hateful to.
I’m tired of this hypocrisy, and I’m tired of supporting it by my presence on this platform. I know that I’m not a customer, and I’m tired of being a disposable product. So goodbye to you all!
PS: Everyone who is interested in reaching me knows where else to find me online.
This week I’ll be spending most of my time designing, drawing and animating dragons.
I need to design a few interesting dragon characters that could be used as bosses in an indie game. After I design each dragon I’ll need to redraw him from a top-down view and give him a simple yet recognizable shape. Unlike regular dragon characters in the game, these ones need to have special moves and attacks.
To animate my characters I’ll use Unity 3D and Anima 2D, which is a great and free Unity plugin. In Anima 2D I can use bones and weights to create fluenty looking 2D animation.
I will be posting some sketches during the week, and I hope I will be able to design and animate somethig that will make the game look unique and memorable.
Today, I wasn’t able to finish much because I’ve spent a lot of time sketching and doing other things. I only submitted one older image and a twelve-second long animation of a strongman that I’ve created from the cartoon I had posted here yesterday. It will take some time for the video to get accepted so, for now, I can only show the accepted illustration of Saint Cyril and Methodius.
