Arcadians by Aikurisu Arcadians by Aikurisu
Yes, I do have lore written for Saul and Zuri. Yet... said lore is more like a biography on Saul's history so far than something workable as a description for here. So back to the drawing board...

That said, though, God be praised! I've finally worked out that issue that was plaguing my comp for pretty much this whole year. You would not believe how liberating it is to finally be able to draw again without constant program freezes, and I'm pretty sure the end result here speaks for itself. lol, even when I had a BSOD today and lost a couple of hours of work on this, one could say that's nothing compared to what I was dealing with on a day to day basis. So... wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~eeeeeeeeeee~ *short breath* ~eeeeeeee~! x_x

Seriously, I wouldn't even wish this comp on my worst enemies at times. (Well, some of them, at least!) ... so may you never have to deal with it. >_>

They're original characters of mine based in the SoA universe. I love that world so much that I'm even writing a story with a new chapter released every month since January: [link] The timeline it's in is set after the events in the game have taken place. =)

Thanks! I never truly realised how much this computer's problems were keeping me back, but now that the nightmare has ended, things are starting to look bright again. =D

And said issue was?

Fantastic picture as usual mate, lighting and anatomy are top notch.

Loving the background as well... the style you're using almost has a sort of asian water-colour feel... if that makes any sense what so ever...

Mate, anything that mentions my work having a kind of watercolour feel, even in the slightest, is downright awesome in my book. =D

As for said issue, it was the original 1TB HHD that Phil installed in the rig. We were thinking it was the SSD that was playing up, yet after sending it to him to fix and finding nothing wrong with it... it got me thinking that we were looking in the wrong place. So I purchased a new Samsung 1TB HHD to replace the old one, and things have been working as they should... minus a few unrelated hiccups that seem to be mostly solved now... At any rate, I can draw art again without wanting to hurl something at the screen, which is simply beautiful. You know, the kind of 'beautiful' Con the Fruiterer would agree with!

Eh, the one that got the most votes was more appealing to a larger crowd here at DA anyway. Sadly, it's not my style. =)

It's hard to explain exactly, but...

This comp has two Hard Drives. One is designed to run essential programs like Windows, Photoshop, etc. The other acts as storage. Both are internal HDs and are connected directly to the motherboard. When things started to go wrong, my friend suspected that it was the program HD, which we went to great lengths to make sure was okay. The comp's readouts didn't exactly say what was wrong, I think, so we were mostly flying blind. We turned up empty-handed with thinking it was the program HD at fault, though, yet eventually I put two and two together and in the pursuit of making the program HD better by mailing it to my friend to fix properly, I bought another HD with similar details as the storage HD and installed windows and such on it to replace the original program HD while I waited.

The original problems remained, making us wonder if it was the actual motherboard at fault. (Not good...) But fortunately when I got the original program HD back, I questioned if it was really the storage HD at fault and then proceeded to replace it by putting all its details onto the newer HD, while returning the original program HD back to where it was. So the problem was solved, mostly~!

Now I just have this annoying BSOD problem that happens randomly once every few days. At least it's less annoying. =P
