What's happenin' bra(bro)?

Just a quick update.

Not much happening at the mo, but I'll just go over what's been happening in the past month!

- As you can tell from the above pic, I've been working on my artwork a lot recently. I've been trying some new techinques that emulate the anime cell-shaded style. It's hard work, but I'm happy with the results, and I seem to be getting a lot of favs on the various artist sites I'm on. If you want to check out what I've been up to, you can check 'em out on my DeviantArt profile here.

- Jobhunting is going as expected: Nowhere! But I have managed to follow up on a few leads under the Apprenticeship route. Nothing concrete yet though, but I'll keep you all posted if anything turns up.

- I recently finished watching Gundam Seed Destiny, making my knowledge of the entire Gundam franchise virtually complete! Destiny was a good show, but suffered from a bad case of "Deus Ex Machina" at the end that ruined what could've been an awesome show in the long run. Despite the fan hate, I still like the main character Shinn Asuka over the dastardly duo of Athrun Zala and Kira Yamato, so there!

- On a related theme, I recently got the new Dynasy Warriors Gundam game for PS3. I loved the first one so much I got the second one, which happened to add the mobile suits from Gundam Seed Destiny, as well as from Victory and F91. It hasn't got the guys from Gundam 00 yet, but I expect Koei plan to put them in when the next DW Gundam next rolls out! I can't wait!

As an extra, I'm still waiting for the New Bionic Commando game for PS3 to come out, as well as a new game called Bayonetta, made by the same guy that made the Devil May Cry games! I literally can't wait!

- By the end of the week, I'm hoping to have an increase from 2MB broadband to 10MB broadband, which would CONSIDERABLY improve the browsing pleasure of me and my whole family! It's hard to have to put up with sluggish speeds when watcing online videos, download large files and playing online videogames when someone else is using up the bandwidth!

Afte much poking and prodding, I managed to get my mum to upgrade our current tv/phone/internet package with Virgin Media. This means we will finally be getting digital tv and much faster internet (fingers crossed!).

Well, I think that's it for now. I'll let you know how things develop as and when it happens!
