Trigger Points Explained!!

All original stories, characters posted and mentioned here are owned by me, please do not repost them without my expressed permission, thanks!!

Today I’d like to talk about something that stemmed from a question someone asked about my writing & why I did what I did to a character. Many moons ago, I let a friend read the first chapter of my novel Starcross Love, but for every error it had, errors I’ll correct when I edit the book, she loved. But even though my friend enjoyed it, she asked why did a character she grew to like get killed so soon. I just told her said character needed to pass in order for the story to progress.

In my mind, this is a trigger point and they are needed in order for something to happen. All my stories have em, even the erotic pieces. If a writer reads my blog, you might know what I mean, but let me expand for new writers. πŸ™‚ In anything, be it stories, anime, manga or movies, something has to give so an effect can take place, & judging by the anime I’m twitching through every Saturday, too many causes are going on lol.

With The Weather Change!

F150 Raptor Stampede 2017

 

With the weather warming over the coming weeks, and hopefully evening out quickly, my mind is shifting to running my R/C trucks, like baby above. I had the truck taken in to get cleaned, have any work that needs doing done and whatever tightened up so that when it is time, I can run free without worry of breakages! πŸ™‚ This time of year always gets a smile out of me because cabin fever can be shaken off, which given the past few months, I NEED!!!!!

Also the NEW truck has been paid for so it is MINE, MINE ALL MINE! πŸ™‚ Like I stated in another post, the truck will stay bone stock, no plan is in my head to upgrade a thing.

Below is a video of my Stampede (aka baby) running from two years ago? πŸ™‚

Another Tragic Filled Anime?

This is kind of a joke but serious post about characters dying in anime. In the years of watching different series, I’ve come to accept that a few of the cast of whatever series are killed off whether to protect a main character, sacrifice or to start a war. These are all acceptable deaths, I do not have issues with, so I wanted to address this before moving on.

 

Akame-ga-Kill

 

That said, in recent years there have been anime that murdered almost every character off except three? Yes, Akame Ga Kill my eyes are on you for this and you were and are on my β€œShit I’ll Never Watch Again” list, though I know there are other series that do it.

For awhile I’ve been watching Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans on Toonami, trying to not twitch due to, well you know, but lately it has been getting to a point of being put on the list above, because of that reason. Really, over the last few episodes, it seems like someone gets axed, leaving me to ask WTF? It could be I’m just out of touch with anime, or grew on different types, not sure, I’ve watch old Gundam series and hadn’t reacted this way. Could I be looking at the anime with as a critic now that I tackle anime on the blog a bit more? Possible, I’ll just end this post by saying if a couple more characters die, DONE!

One More Anime Creation & A Question….

A couple posts might make it up today because it feels like I’ve been slacking a little with content. After seeing the responses (likes) people left on my β€œSailor V in SC5?” post I want to show one more anime character that made the old creative juices flow.

The actual year this anime released escapes me at this moment, but are there any fans of M.S. Nadesico among the new followers of the blog? I picked up a few volumes of it on VHS in the 90s at Anime Central & fell in love with the series. In fact, the DVD boxset was bought two or three years back with plans of watching it again after getting round to the reviews that are overdue! πŸ™‚

Anyway, there’s a character in the series named Ruri Hoshino that has an interesting attitude & for that reason, she’s one of my favorites. Two years ago, the fire ignited in me to see if she could be created in SC5, but a friend aided me by doing it first and wrote a guide for me to follow.

Below is a pic from google then two pics of the creation! Does it look like her?? πŸ™‚

 

Ruri

 

 

ruri 1

 

 

ruri 2

 

In his version, the item attached to her skirt was on the wrong side, but as you see, I corrected it. Ruri might not be complete, there were details he listed in the guide, but does she look alright? Also wanna ask you all something.

While I’m 50% sure I’m buying SC6 on Steam, (if my RX480 can handle it), but it depends on playerbase. Oh, the community will be there, I have no doubt, but like Tekken, a few try hards can ruin the game for me, I’m getting off topic though. Would some like to see a couple of my matches from SC5, leading up to 6? Drop a comment and let me know! ^_^

Sailor V In SC5?

Well, the weekend was somewhat productive, even though people in the house wanna wake me up at 7-9am, acting like fools. Anyway, St. Patricks Day, I looked for a good enough pic of Sailor Venus because wanted to see if I still could create her in SC5, like I did some years ago. Below is the picture I use as a reference followed by two pictures of the finished creation for your approval.

Sailor Venus 1

 

Sailor Venus 2

 

Due to the limits of the creation tool, a couple things couldn’t be added, the choker around Venus’s neck for example. They offer a stutted one, & I tried coloring it correctly, but it didn’t look right, so I left it out. What gave a little challenge was her hair bow. Memory serves she has it holding her style in place, having all of it showing. When doing this with the model, no matter which way I tried, something felt out of place, so the choice was made to back it into her head a hair.

What’s the verdict, does the creation look like Sailor Venus? πŸ™‚

Anime Creation Showcase! :)

Please allow me to say this before starting. Though I made Sailor Mars and A-Ko I DO NOT own them or the rights to Project A-KO or Sailor Moon. Money isn’t made from their use!!

As stated and promised yesterday/today, the two anime creations I’ve made on SC5 will be shown. These were fun to do & with A-Ko, a pic was referred too, getting as close with the likeness as possible to the anime character. When you see her, be the judge please?

 

Ako

 

A Ko

So a little off, but close no? Both her and Sailor Mars were created very early before learning how to really use the creation tool, and maybe I’ll revisit them soon. πŸ™‚

 

Sailor Mars

 

Ah Mars or Hino Rei, one of my favorite out of the inner senshi, besides Sailor Venus of course. Believe it or not, though the anime hasn’t been seen since the 90s, she was recreated from memory! πŸ™‚ Sure, other players in SC5, fans of the series created better versions of Rei, but I’m kinda pleased with the way she turned out, especially not using references.

I had a Venus as well, perhaps I’ll remake her this weekend! πŸ™‚ Can you tell that making characters is a hobby? Also made Ruri Hoshino from M.S. Nadesico, wanna see? πŸ™‚

More Show And Tell! :)

Most who have followed me here for years know that my passion is to create characters from my book or other writings using SC5’s creation tool. I also create characters from Anime like Sailor Moon and Project A ko, (I’ll show the anime creations another day). For the new followers, I thought it’d be cool to show some of the creations I made and show them in game.

Skya redone 1

 

First, my elf princess Skya! I’m proud of how she turned out, but back when I played her full time, people complained she’s too sexualized, which half the creations most players showed were WAAAAAAAY worse, so yeah!! While she isn’t in the vampire novel, the princess is in a story I’m finishing up! Here’s Skya in action!

How did I do designing her? I heard her with a 20 year oldish voice, so I got the voice sliders close to mimic the young tone. πŸ™‚

 

Mei Xing

You’ve seen Mei Xing because I made Tekken 7’s Xiaoyu as this character. The idea behind her was I wanted a woman that knew some sorta martial art. She’s almost eighteen, but I dunno what story to stick her in, maybe due to her age. What’s your takes on it? Here’s her in action! πŸ™‚

seductress-2

Last creation to show my fans, peeps, readers is Seductress, above. For her, an idea sparked! πŸ™‚ Wanted to see what would come out if I took the Arroncar Nell from Bleach, but put my stank on her, making my own demon type sword user. Originally I saw her with wings, & different wings were tried, not looking right so they were dropped. How do you like her? πŸ™‚
