Embrace the Dogma

Recently, a friend turned me on to Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma. Probably the best thing I’ve played since Skyrim. The companion system is great.  Called “pawns”, you customize a single main pawn then get to choose two more from the online pool of other player’s pawns.  When another player chooses your pawn, it gives your pawn a chance to learn quest and enemy knowledge that they can bring back with them–making them a better pawn.

The boss fights are epic, and so much more satisfying than the dragon fights in Skyrim (sorry Alduin).  My first fight with a Drake took half an hour, lots of potions, and climbing.  Oh, did I mention the best way to defeat most bosses is to climb on their backs and attack from above?  So epic.

Finished watching Fire and Ice the other day and just had to draw Darkwolf. Such a cool character – like a barbarian Batman.

Brushes on the iPad is Great!

Just discovered Brushes for the iPad and I love it.  Not only is it a robust sketching app, but you can export the steps as time-lapse style video.  Check it out!
