Hard at Work

The school season has started again, and now that I've finished with what is roughly my 3rd week of classes, I think I've gotten back in the groove.

I've not simply been doing coursework, however, (mostly because the classes I'm taking don't really require a lot of coursework, which is awesome) and I've been working on a few projects and hobbies that I had set aside for a while, and have even started up some new ones.  One such, as I've mentioned in a previous post, is exploration of my music tastes.  Another is a comic of sorts that I've been neglecting called Legend of The Phoenix, (which actually inspired me to create this blog in the first place) and my most recent project, Metal Man: Rock & Roll, which has been taking up most of my free time.

Legend of The Phoenix is, I assume, not very good, but I may yet post some images.  I tend to downplay my own abilities, and it could very well be better than I think, though it does at this point consist of sketches in a notebook that I made when I was bored in class last year.  For those of you who care, the picture for my twitter account is the main character.

Metal Man: Rock & Roll was thought of when I really realized that much of the really good music from Video Games are the ones that have their roots in good ol' Rock & Roll.  Take April, by Deep Purple for example:

Pay specific attention around the 2:00 mark

And then of course there's stuff like this:

Anyway, you get my point.  Metal Man is basically my way to homage not only the great games of the past, and their music, but the great music that inspired it as well.

I'll be putting up more on these (and other) projects shortly.
