So, I've decided to begin getting into pixel artistry as a hobby. I already managed to hit a roadblock in the fact I have numerous platforms and programs for those platforms to select from. So far my choices are:
AtariSTE - NEOChrome Master, Deluxe Paint, CyberPaint
Amiga 1200 - Deluxe Paint (probably 4 or 5), Brilliance, Photo Paint
DOS - Disney Animation Studio (own a boxed copy I got cheap off eBay), Deluxe Paint 2/DPaint Animation
Given that a lot of my art (as I get to it,
So, I start working again at Disney's Hollywood Studios again after almost a full year out on medical leave. I seriously have to thank my managers for busting their asses to ensure I stayed a part of the team. With my foot/ankle/leg recovered (playing Dance Dance Revolution for the first time in almost four years was great), I can actually resume hunting for game bargains. I've actually found several boxed Intellivision games for incredible prices at the Play n Trade in Oviedo, FL. Once a pa
Well, after a full recovery from my ankle surgery in October (and an emergency gall-bladder removal last month) I'm finally back to the physical capability I had since early 2008. Despite defaulted student loans an a consolidation program for them, I look forward to returning to work and having my old active, social, and gaming lives back.
On 10/19/2011, I received surgery for a tarsal-tunnel re-release. Within a week, my doctor already has me back to walking and beginning physical therapy. From the rate things are going, it looks like I will finally.. FINALLY make a full recovery after over 3.5 years of suffering from a workplace accident. I look forward to having my old life back again.
Man, who knew actually going outside of Orlando could've been so great for finding retro games? I went to a few Video Game Trader stores (Orange City and Port Orange), as well as a place near South Daytona called "Blue Dragon Videogames". There was a lot of goodies to find. I've found some rare Atari 2600 games (Track & Field, Congo Bongo, Gorf, Steeplechase) all for a dollar a piece (and in the case of T&F and Steeplechase, I felt like I stole the games for how cheap they were sold).
I know a few of you have heard about the hell I've gone through since I had a workplace accident back in '08. Well, I did finally get hired part-time at Disney of all places (having been unemployed for a year, and ankle still not in any better shape since last year's surgery.. I'll take what I can get). When I submitted my paperwork yesterday, turns out the degree I was going for in college sparked interest in the new-hire staff. It seems once I graduate, I've already got opportunities for ma
