I Give Up. I’m Ditching OpenCanvas 7 For Clip Studio Paint.

As an Illustrator, I can’t use OpenCanvas 7 anymore.   Two years. That’s almost how long it has been since OpenCanvas 7 received an update.   The last update it got was on October 15th, 2019. That is insane. No software should be going that long without an update. And it’s a program that desperately needs features and bug fixes to keep up with its much more well-equipped competition.  …

Yes, We Need More Women of Colour As Game Protagonists.

More games like Forspoken, please!   I have just read the article by Ash Parrish on Kotaku: Sorry, Your Cis White Woman Protagonist Isn’t Progressive.   As you can already predict, I very much do agree with what she wrote, and I want to add something a bit personal to what has already been said.   Firstly, I’ll like to admit that as a trans woman I’m pretty much satisfied…

Changes Going Forward, More Art To Come.

My last art post, not including this one or the one I made for my recent journal entry, was on the 16th of August. That means it’s been 64 days or about 2 months since I last posted any substantial artwork.   After dealing with the fallout of the family I was staying with, I’ve been thinking about how I need to focus on my art again. Not just for…

Humble Choice: Why I Can’t Support Humble Bundle Anymore.

The result of IGN’s 2017 acquisition starts to show.   Yesterday, Humble Bundle announced that they’re converting their Humble Monthly subscription programme to Humble Choice.   Humble Monthly traditionally worked like a loot crate. It gave you a bunch of mystery games for a reoccurring subscription fee but showcasing and giving you at least one major game to play right away for that month. The rest of the games would…

It Was All A Trap: From One Dysfunctional Home To The Next.

Be careful who you accept “help” from, especially if the person in question has a religious agenda.   At first, I didn’t think I could write this comfortably because it would be practically throwing the people who gave me a place to stay under the bus. But with the grotesque things that were condoned, not only to me but to another person under their roof, this isn’t a matter to…

Saying Goodbye To Kik Messenger.

You won’t be forgotten, ol’ friend.   The news broke that the instant messaging app Kik is shutting down due a “legal battle against the US Securities and Exchange Commission over its digital currency offering”, as Telegraph’s ‘Natasha Bernal’ puts it.   This came as a complete surprise to me and it’s almost heartbreaking to see the app that I have so much personal history with is going to disappear.…

We All Got Played: ProJared Reveals The Truth Behind His Controversy.

Lied to and played like a f@#king fiddle from the beginning.   Three months after the drama, ProJared finally comes forward with information and hard evidence about everything that transpired, in his video “YOU’VE BEEN LIED TO“. And damn, I am so livid right now.   What you will find out is that what happened with Jared was nothing more than a meticulous plan by three deceitful people to utterly…

Thank you, Rich. I Also Needed To Hear That.

ReviewTechUSA proves that he’s still one of the wisest YouTubers on the platform.   It’s really no secret to my friends that I’ve been going through some pretty bad stuff on social media during the last two months.   There was a controversy I was involved in where one of my supposed “friends” sent her friends to attack me after she gave me an ultimatum about my best friend.  …
