If you're here because you saw my name on the Tales of Berseria article
, welcome! I was excited for the opportunity to write about the world of the Tales of games, especially since they have such a structured and unique approach to world building. I hope it's something I was able to express clearly, and that creative types were able to walk away with a little something they could possibly use in their own storytelling! As an added bonus, I got to meet and spend a bit of time with the amazing sakimichan
and her friend Gia, who are both hilarious and some of the nicest people I've ever met. This project also let me dive into the stunning and diverse fanart this community has created for the various Tales of games, and I love me some fanart!
I've been playing video games my whole life, so getting to write about a series as old and awesome as the Tales Of series (I still have fond memories of playing Tales of Destiny with my brother way back on the PS1 we shared) was a real treat.
I know that my gallery has been a little lacking lately, and while that is sad, it doesn't mean that I haven't been creating. I spend most of my time writing. I'm still constantly on DA and looking at awesome art, but I've found that my creative outlets tend more towards the written word, and I've had the awesome opportunity to contribute to GamingTrend
, where I write news, editorials, and review video games in my spare time. I'm an indie game junkie, so while getting to play some of the big titles is great, it's been amazing to get to discover and highlight some of the little known gems smaller studios are putting out. I'm also still keeping up my pet project, DrunkenFandom
, which is dedicated to discussing fandom in flavors! Every week we post up a cocktail or mocktail recipe inspired by fandom, and the amazing community and artists of DeviantArt have had no small influence on my understanding of fandom.
I've also been creating plushies! These take a lot more time, since I am incredibly new to the craft, and I tend to mess them up a lot.
But it's still fun! Most recently I created two plushies for Ooblets
, an indie game which is still in development. It combines creature collecting and battling with farming, and those are two of my favorite types of games! It's not due to come out until 2108, and I really can't wait.
Thank you for dropping by, I hope 2017 is treating you well! So let's chat--what games are you playing currently? What art are you working on? Let me know!
