Wonderful Paintings by Scott Listfield
Scott Listfield isn’t from here. He approaches these paintings as an outsider observing human culture from the future. The mashups that he comes up with are quite memorable. A selection of paintings from the series "Dinosaur Astronaut" by American artist .
Photo-realistic and offset an astronaut sentenced to explore this world populated Starbucks, minivans, donuts and reality, after a childhood nurtured films and comics boasting us a world of paintings 2000 is flying cars, journeys in space and houses on the moon … We find in his paintings many references to science fiction “modern” Alien Star Wars through Futurama, Transformer or Jurassic Park … Sad future. For more of his work, check the website Astronaut Dinosaur.
Practice Swords - Senbongiri
The name of the sword was given by the Senbongiri - the practice of performing 1000 consecutive cuts on various targets. This practice has seen a partial revival in recent years, especially in the west.
This sword features a hand forged T10 blade that has been differentially hardened using traditional clay-tempering which reveals a stunning hamon in the notare style.
It comes as standard with no bo-hi but a half bo-hi can be specified to save on weight and push the balance point further up the blade for ease of cutting toward the kissaki.

Sprite art from “Herogest”!
Saying I had a few gothic-ish game projects inbetween the ones I finish would be an understatement. I released a video of this around the time Bindign of Isaac was announced as some sort of weird “I’m not gonna make this game now, but for future reference, just wanna make clear I wasn’t copying”, even if that shouldn’t be necessary. They turned out with very different goals. Herogest was meant to generate new gameplay and, to an extent, mechanics. Not be about finding loot and trinkets at all.
Basically it would generate Zelda-like dungeons with one item, and the dungeon would add traps based on the item. Many more ideas and sophistication went into even the prototype engine, but it was during the beginning of Iconoclasts dev and I knew I needed 100% of my time on it. Definitely coming back to this one. <3

By the way, having abandoned projects just means you’re a game dev. People used to love to say I never finished anything. They’re just big projects. ;)
