Window Breaker by RuthlessDutchman
Window Breaker
Casual doodle while on the train home. 

While drawing the stick-figure wireframe I was thinking about the sorts of things people have said about representations in games, overdone tropes and stereotypes. Things like how often the 'badass' protagonist is some burly white man with a big gun in shooters, or how armour worn by any woman seems impractical [[Boob window, metal boob cups, less coverage - more power]], or even that physical handicaps are solved by technological replacements such as prosthetics that function just as well as a typical limb, if not 30x better [[It's never really inbetween, it's either 'you can walk' or 'your legs turn into rocket boosters']].

I'll admit I haven't had the chance to play many games, mainly due to me only having a Dreamcast till 2010 with a select few games, and an X-Box 360 but my parents wouldn't allow for any games involving guns or violence. Any computer I've owned until the start of this academic year has been less than capable to even run minecraft. But I've listened to people online and in person talk about these things and they were all going through my head as I was drawing. 

She's unnamed at the moment, but I'm happy with how this came out.
So I've finished my 2nd year at the University of Liverpool now and it's time to kick my feet back and relax.


No really that's pretty much what I've been doing all year and that needs a change. Once I'm back to living at home (End of this month) I'm 100% certain mum wouldn't want me sitting at home on the computer all day, and to be honest, neither do I. It'd be great if I had more friends closer by but the problem is the majority of people in my town are chavs :/ (For those who don't know, chavs are people who live in council owned houses, live off benefits and wear tracksuits, plus their personality is outshone by a mud brick). Nevertheless I'll find ways to occupy myself, and getting a job during the holidays would be an idea!

What I will most certainly be doing over the holidays is staying in a cottage in York with Tori's family :D It's a cycling holiday and I MAY go horseriding too (And if anyone says horseriding is for girls then I'll send the entire British Cavalry for your ass). I'm also hoping to get back into weightlifting for a while with Dad during the time I'm home so I'll be a bit more pumped up when I go back to Uni, plus I can take my dumbbells I got for my birthday to keep myself going during Uni! :D As for anything else planned I don't know. I may go to Ireland to see my father? I still have to send him info about the type of laptop I'm looking for, and it's GOTTA be high spec (and new) because of the stuff I use.

But other than that I think that's it! I'll be playing with lego or sunbathing or drawing or photoshoppping or playing guitar, but that's about it :P

Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays :D

The amount of times my art teacher has said I should be an 80s kid is shocking, but I have brought in on myself.. I wear countless badges, listen to 80s music AND pretty much dress in a funky manner when I want to (2.5ft long tie anyone?). It doesn't help that I REALLY REALLY REALLY want a MicroKORG Synth!! :D

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! ♥

You're awesome Merlin.
