Sorry for going missing for so long! Sometimes I let scanning and editing my images for the site get way behind. But yesterday, I met someone, and was very inspired to get my act in order! These are all from months ago, but they might be new to you, depending on if you've seen my actual sketchbook or not. So enjoy!
Merry Christmas, two days late!
So, um, yeah... ::blushes:: I had kinda meant to post these pictures before the holiday, but I was so busy I kinda never got around to it... my fault! Hope it's not too late! Here they are:
Merry belated Christmas!
Today is Veteran's Day / Armistice day, a day I know today is usually to celebrate peace. But this day, it was slightly different: I finally did it, did what many have thought almost impossible. I had to leave my NES on for almost 2 weeks, but finally, on 11-11-11, at 3:23 PM, I beat Ninja Gaiden. Huzzah! A game even the AVGN couldn't beat (at least in his tribute review)!
Every time I close my eyes, I still see all of Act VI in my head. You must replay it So. Many. Times. Gah, stupid eagles and monkeys!
I know I'm hardly the first, and that the first game is no Ninja Gaiden III, but dammit, I'm happy with myself right now. Perseverance works! (Should I say that procrastination works? Either way, the little red light on the NES almost seemed to be taunting me every night as I went to sleep...)
Photos of the moment below. Sorry for the cell phone pics of a TV, but I had to grab my phone (the closest thing to me) to record this moment.
And now the NES is off for a well deserved rest; it did me proud, never glitched once. And then, after a break, I can finally play some other games. Once again, huzzah!
Edited to add: And see you next!
Last day of the continuous sketchbook updates, as I'm finally through that which I've scanned. I'll try to keep up better in the future. And maybe get around to my back library of images!
