Cheapass

Right, time for a break from WoW I reckon, or at least a serious reduction, I've done one too many dungeon crawl where everyone came out poorer - not a reflection on the people playing it, but to me, if you're going to go to the hassle of gathering twenty people together to hit a dungeon then by god the game should be balanced so that you don't all come out three hours later, five gold poorer and 10% closer to completing a quest for an item that is marginally better than the one you have.

Next week is White Elephant art week, I'm going to get that sucker done in advance this time instead of screaming at the computer at midnight on the day before I have to get them sent. This time I will be experimenting with cell shading some more (somewhat pointless given that the thing is printed in black and white but its the thought that counts) as well as Microsoft's free "Acrylic" paint program (it looks like it might be to corel's "Painter" as the Gimp is to Photoshop) as well as the oddly named Project Dogwaffle (also free), a similar product that would seem to veer even further towards the natural painting style.
I'm also going to experiment with that "The Movies" game and see what kind of stuff I can do with it, I'm curious to see if it lives up to the hype in terms of its versatility as a machinima tool.
