Figured I should like...update this thing! I'm gonna be there wandering the halls on Sat/Sun...AS A SITH! I've never been, and had very little time to prepare a costume but honestly...why go to a convention if you're not going to dress up :D!? My best friend is going to be my TWIN and it will be AWESOME!!! I will...probably have more facepaint and crazy hair eventually :).


Had a lot of fun making the costume...it was surprisingly easy!

Roll call! Who's gonna be there!? Last year was my first PAX experience, and what an AMAZING experience it was! I'm originally from Seattle, so visiting home + what is now my favorite gaming convention = WINNER!

Like last year, the entire Supergiant Games team will be there. We'll have a couple kiosks where you can try the game out, there will be schwag (posters, I believe ;D!), and/or just stop by to say HELLOOOOOO!

Hi Guys!

I'm super excited to announce that Bastion has just been released for PC Digital Download on Steam!

To thank you guys for your unwavering support, I have five copies of the game to give away! All you need to do is leave a comment with the word "SCUMBAG" used in a sentence (I just need to know you're human ;D), and your name will be entered into a random drawing. You have 24-hours to do this (until 12:30PM PDT on 8/17), so get your comment-on! I will be updating this journal with the winners tomorrow, and said winners will receive their download code in their DA notes shortly after:).

Image Description


For those of you who own an XBox 360 and have access to the internet, Bastion was released last month for XBLA - so if you'd prefer to play it on console, please go find us there. :)

Thanks once more to all of you for your wonderful support - for those of you who aren't sure what Bastion is, in a nutshell: it's a painterly Action RPG with a lot of heart. Supergiant Games is composed of six talented members hoping to create games which remind us of the ones we played as children :). I served as the sole 2D artist so a lot of my lack of DA updates over the last year or so can be attributed to this project! I put a lot of myself into creating this game, so if you enjoy my work, perhaps you can take some time to give the demo (XBLA, or PC/Steam) a go :)! Those of you who have been following me awhile should know that working on this game has been a sort of dream come true, so whether you win the contest, or buy the game yourself, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it :heart:!

Want to know a little more about what I've been up to? Here's our announcement and launch trailer as well as OTHER THINGS!

EVO 2011! Fighting game MADNESS!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 29, 2011, 12:09 AM


Just wanted to drop a note to say that I'm going to be attending Evo in Las Vegas this weekend! I'm SO EXCITED! I've been wanting to go for a couple years now! YAYYYYY. I sort of want to whip out my Sakura cosplay, but I moved recently and sort of have no idea where all the parts are >_>. OH WELL. Will attend a nerd-thing as a normal human being for once, I suppose!

Anyone else going? :D If you see me, grab me and say "hi!" ... erm... I... am Asian and....have a grey purse? LOL...

Hey guys, sorry I have been more absent than usual lately (I know, it's amazing how I can actually get WORSE at this!).

My company/team Supergiant Games is neck deep in finalizing Bastion (www.supergiantgames.com) for a tentative Summer release! I just wanted to drop a note to let you guys know we will be in the Indie Game Festival at GDC (which is going on this week), and you should definitely stop by and play our game/chat with us if you'll be there and could spare the time!

We were nominated as finalists for Excellence in Art and Excellence in Audio for the IGF, so hopefully we'll snag at least one of those if we deserve it :)! The Indie Game pavilion opens Wednesday, I believe, so see you dudes there! :D

I plan on thanking Dragonball Z, Altered Beast, and the art in the Warcraft 2 manual, if I win Excellence in Art >:D!

Hope you're all doing AMAZINGLY WELL :)! Thanks for sticking by me, and apologies once again for late replies/never replies T_T ! :hug::cookie::heart:


PS: If you have no clue what I'm talking about, check out our trailer at www.youtube.com/watch?v=mX48y2… :)!

I know it's a relatively small thing, but for my company (Supergiant Games supergiantgames.com/site/) and me, it's pretty exciting! Some news about the game we're working on, "Bastion," along with a big screenshot (not my most favorite art there, but oh well XD) are on page 38 and 1/5th of 39!!!!!1one Anyway, it's exciting to see our stuff in GI, even though it's just a small paragraph about us :)! Next stop... COVER ART!!! Unlikely, but...*crosses fingers.* Check it out if you have access to a Gamestop (or are a subscriber)!

Hey lovely artists! As some of you may know, after three great years working as an artist at Gaia Online, I have finally moved on to continue pursuit of my Video-Game-Development dreams!

I have been at Supergiant Games - a startup consisting of a couple ex-EALA guys - for about a month now, and after a week of crazy crunch, we submitted our game demo to the PAX10, a Penny Arcade Indie-Game competition. We ended up being selected as one of the ten winners (!!!!! WE BE WINNARS !!!!!), so we will be at PAX showing off our CREATION this year! And you should totally stop by and say hello at our booth which I will likely be manning...a lot of the time XD. Thankfully I am also a Seattle Native, so I'm way excited :).

If you're curious, our game is now officially announced and is called "Bastion" - I'll keep you guys updated, but you can also check out new art and stuff at www.supergiantgames.com ! Or our facebook page....and stuff...which is linked from there ;D! I'm basically doing...almost everything that has to do with art that hasn't been done yet LOL. So if it's ugly.... I'M SORRY T_T! But it will be awesome and fun!!!! <3

Now that I am at Supergiant I will also probably have more time to draw, so that is EXCITING! Hope you guys are doing well! DA'S USER INTERFACE KEEPS CHANGING AND IT'S CONFUSING ME!!!!!!!!!!!1111111

YAYER!

Hi guys! Hope to see you there :). I won't have an artist table there, since last year I realized I was far too distracted to sit at a table all day XD. I'll be cosplaying as Sakura (her alternate Ryu outfit) from Street Fighter IV with thunder thighs and all ;)! If you see me feel free to run me down and say hello!

I'll be on the Gaia Panel on Sunday with :iconpepper-tea: and :iconreapersun: (I think...), too, so be there! I'M NERVOUS. :D

Go bother :iconyour-fathers-belt: to cosplay again this year XD!!! (He was the awesome Grimmjow at last Fanime!)

SEE YOU GUYS THERE!!!

I may or may not be doing Artist Alley on Friday, but definitely on Saturday and Sunday I think! I'm only selling old stuff unfortunately... and not a whole lot of it. Work kicked my butt, and I prioritized teaming up with superphi - c2lan.deviantart.com/ to make a Grimmjow costume for Yourfathersbelt - your-fathers-belt.deviantart.c… :D. He's gonna look awesome!!!!

Anyway I'll be cosplaying as Halibel from Bleach, so if you see a Halibel running around (blonde hair... huge collar...sorry no boobage guys :)) that may or may not be me! I'd love you guys to stop by if you see me at AA just to chit chat! I'll be sharing a table with o_8 - oh8.deviantart.com/ !

I'll be at the Gaia panel at 6ish (I think?) too, doubt I'll be saying anything, but I'll be there :).

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments/critiques/feedback/encouragement/everything! I'm sorry it takes me some time to reply (if I do at all >_<  ) but I do read them all and treasure/learn from each and every one! :typerhappy:!


If the ultra-geeky-but-super-fun past-time of cosplay doesn't interest you at all, then I recommend you don't waste precious time with this journal! :giggle:! Sorry to spam your inboxes :hug:!

I know I'm years behind the times, but I started reading Bleach...

And by started, I mean I read 1-305 in about... two days or so. The day after that I ran to the fabric store and started an Arrankar Halibel cosplay >_>;. Do I have the breast size or skin tone for it? No, not at all, but that's not going to stop me!!! The Hakama is more or less complete... thankfully I've folded hakama for Iaido/Kendo just about eleventy-billion times, so I had great reference going into it :blahblah:.

I remember watching the first episode of the anime two years ago and thinking it was boring as heck! I'm glad I gave the manga a go... I would give an explanation as to why I enjoy it, but I'm quite certain 99% of those who read this have been following the series for far, far longer than a noobling such as I XD. I'm thinking... you should possibly expect fan art.

Hopefully I'll get to attend Fanime '08 with the rest of the Gaia people!  Dressing as....
1. Bleach - Espada, Halibel.
2. D. Grayman - Custom Rinalee (hopefully... I haven't started this one yet) ... I honestly think her outfit is a little boring compared to Allen, Kanda and Rabi's.
3. BATGIRL - Cassandra Cain!!!! Is it against the rules to wear Americomic costumes to Anime conventions? :o.
4. If Batgirl isn't allowed into Fanime, then maybe Kagura from Gintama! Seems like an easy cosplay and I just *love* the character :d.

It's literally been four years since I've cosplayed.  I completely blame my cubicle-neighbor, c2lan.deviantart.com .

Who will be attending Fanime '08? (Or for that matter, Wondercon '08) :D Will you be wearing Bleach, DGM, or *gasp* BATMAN!?

I didn't get to make out with anyone this year when the clock struck 12pm. Okay well... I've never made out with anyone on New Years! If I had stayed in California for New Years I would've propositioned Saka (sukinahito.deviantart.com, who will incidentally destroy me with death's fiery passion if this is seen :/. <3 Saka!), but alas!!!

Another year passes by, and I'm not in the LEAST bit more mature than I appeared to be last year [Thank you! Thank you!].
