Work aside - most of the time and energy I put aside for personal endeavors has been invested in the Last Man Standing contest (Thanks Cody!). Contests always pressure me to expand and explore even more than usual - sometimes perhaps too much. I'm still a little mentally sapped from the following entries. Flawed as they are, the knowledge gained has been completely worth it.
I had a lot of trouble concerning monitors and values on these two as well. I have a habit or perhaps a penchant for using subtle value differences at the extreme ends of the spectrum. I'm practically asking for trouble. :|
Characters are hard!
Thanks to everyone encouraging me to update, makes me very happy!
