    Apologies, but no.

    Gah, sorry, my sieve-like memory strikes again. To answer your question though, this is a straightforward pixel art background from MS Paint along with GIFs twisted together in the unfortunately named G.I.M.P, then I used VSDC video editor to place the animations over the background and make the...

    Whimsies, doings and curios.

    Greetings all and Merry weekend. I've been trying to hone my skills with pixel art, animations and the like and have made the following scene, a reasonably elaborate mission briefing in the WC1 style. The story here is of an Exeter, the TCS Tengu fleeing from a pursuing Kilrathi strike force...

    "But the Killie-cats aren’t supposed to like the water" (June 11, 2021)

    Good Lord; I think I was a teenager when I painted this, which was farther back now than I care to admit to. Funnily enough, I had a bit of a cleanout a few days ago and stumbled across this, painted around the same time. I'm not sure what inspired me to do a watercolour of a piece of a carrier...

    Earlier I chanced upon some google translate parody videos and, ever a slave to my passing whimsies:

    I've always wanted to make one of these. Alas my pixel art talents aren't quite up to the original game's standards, but perhaps this'll make for a nifty, nostalgic thing for some. Bit of a headcanon scene here. It takes place during the winning path with the Tiger's Claw finishing the Kilrathi...

    Finished... well, Vega sector at least. In any case, on this less-than-calm of days for many, I figured a distraction may be in order so I've twisted together this compendium of all the strange and/or comical intro videos I made for the series. Take care all.

    Just swinging by to wish everyone a goodly Halloween.

    Port Hedland and Hubble's Star are done. (Saved both Drayman (Draymen?)... eventually.) The missions themselves are nothing new to anyone here most likely, but the peculiar humour and freakish intros are, like this one:

    The Unknown Enemy play through is complete (probably) and I'm back on WC1 doing covering losing path missions in my own silly way. Chengdu is done and can be found here with the others. More to follow. Also, here's Maniac being buried alive (so to speak.)

    Okay, there's still a few bonus videos to come, but the main campaign videos for the WC: Unknown Enemy play-through are uploaded and can be seen here if you wish.

    As passing Wing Commandersque whimsies strike, I'll post them here. Next up, and with scant regard for chronology, is what will hopefully be a swift let's play of Unknown Enemy, in my own peculiar style. The first proper videos are coming soon. I'll also link my twitter where more specific...

    (Persistence is key.) The let's play and accompanying oddities are finished for now. The last video came complete with this fan reading from the Heart of the Tiger novel, complete with as good a display of video editing trickery as I could manage. I'll leave it here as it may entertain. I'll...

    The Galacticats: my new webcomic

    Getting a bit of a 'Claw Marks' vibe from what I can see on your Patreon, of which I have to approve. Good luck with it.

    Some proper samples of what I've been twisting together in this series, to hopefully amuse:
