For those of you that don’t know what a #QuickDrawCollab is, here is the summary of it:

It’s an event where a couple of artists get together to quickly draw what the audience asks them. It’s the illustrator’s version of improvised theater, and it can be quite fun if you knows the artists and want your fan-fiction brought to life. It’s a great way to get to know your favorite artists and meet new ones.

Modding Stardew Valley the RPG dungeon crawler and farming simulator

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog, today I want to share with you a little hobby I’ve been working on. Over the last month I’ve been working on modding my  Stardew Valley farm because I wanted to learn more about making video games in preparation for my own projects and SDV is a game I’ve enjoyed playing a lot. I do recommend you pick it up as well, since it covers a lot of game genres.

You can find me on Facebook

I never thought I would play a pixel art game but it’s story is similar to Ernest’s story so I decided to watch some play-throughs on Youtube and I was hooked. Here are some screen shots, I’ve modified mods from Nexus Mods because I couldn’t find the exact thing I wanted so I made a combination of multiple mods and on occasion I made my own since I couldn’t find what I wanted.

Happy New Year!

Hope you had a nice time this end of year, and we wish you a awesome new year in 2018!

new year Ernest the blue bunny hisame artwork

We’ve had a good year and reached most of the milestones we set for our selves so we want to take this opportunity to thank you, the fans for all your support!

And since it’s a new year I thought this would be a great time to share this with you. Some of you have already seen similar guides before, others have not.

ernest the blue bunny hisame artwork indie comics

So just a reminder of how the industry works and why supporting your favorite indie artists is so important. They usually don’t have safety nets and do this out of passion. And at the end of this year I have seen many artists give up or get burned out and I must say the thought of closing up shop has passed my mind too, but I have people around me who still support me and so, I am still here. ^_^

So for those that don’t know these things, please have this list in mind next time you see your favorite artist post your beloved content.

Have a lovely day and hugz!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Halloween is my favorite holiday so for this Niels Feynman holidays special I added some extra easter eggs and references from the genera of cosmic horror and sci-fi as well as other artworks of mine. Hope you enjoy and I wish you the best!

So I like to keep my holiday specials detached temporal from the main story line so that I can showcase funny events and characters that will appear in future comic issues.

In the upper left we have the Mendls, cousins of Alfred Feynman, Niel’s dad. The family tree is available to my Patreon supporters, so if you wish to support us financially you will get access to extra content and behind the scenes materials.  They are costumed as the gods Odin and Kali, the original superheros so to speak and  Alfred is just wearing a Halloween pumpkin sweater. You can also see uncle Aubrey Mendl giving Marie a chocolate muffin which shouldn’t be much of an issue since Marie is a cyborg corgi and is much tougher than a normal dog. Also can you guess as what famous dog she’s dressed as?

On the upper right I drew the O’Haras, their family will appear in the comic story where Niels goes back in time to visits the famous admiral Zheng He. But more on that once we manage to finish the current story line:  Niels visits Isaac Newton.

Up on the stairs we have Niels costumed as the renowned physicist  Richard Feynman, while Ingrid is costumed as a firefighter and on the last step is Darsha costumed as Mary Jackson, one of  N.A.S.A.’s engineers that helped the Americans win the space race.

Watch on Youtube how we made the illustration.

 

Bellow we have Evangeline and Erwin discussing Erwin’s costume choice. Now I had a lot of fun making this relationship dynamic and referencing G.R.R. Martin and Robert W. Chambers ‘ works. “The King in Yellow” is a cosmic horror figure featured in Lovecraft‘s and Martin’s  works as well and since the action takes place in Cambridge U.K. the most scariest thing to adults is, and probably will continue to be, healthcare bills, hence Erwin’s outfit. Needles to say Eve’s parents who are English don’t find Erwin’s joke funny.

Evangeline is of course dressed as the breaker of chains, the mother  and the most bad-ass female super hero since Artemis and Athena.

As for references to my own work you can see a small ad for a sale on Ernest the Blue Bunny merchandise and a Y.A.N.A. online DLC pack. YANA, Long Feast and LDAD are there series of novels set in steam punk, futuristic and medieval worlds that I’m still working on. The drafts are done and I will polish and publish these books after I finish the Niels Feynman series. So expect a large shared, expansive universe with lots of adventures in the decades to come.

Hugz,

Hisame

The #TenStyleChallenge art event

Hisame Artwork
Go to our Facebook group

Hi everyone! I’m happy to share with you updates from our art event #TenStyleChallenge.  And for those of you who don’t know the event, here is the gist of it: make self portraits in someone else’s style.

Hisame Artwork ten style challenge #tenstylechallenge

It’s an event held all over the internet where artists make self portraits in popular cartoon style such as  “The Simpsons” or “Sailor Moon”.  But for our little art group we did it in the styles of the artists there so that we can promote the awesome artists we have in our group and also make fun of our faces and suffering while trying to do a style very different from our own.

#HisameNews for April \(^o^)/

Hi everyone!

It’s been a busy time for me, I haven’t had the time to do a vlog like I promised, sorry. Still I know some of you wanted to keep in touch and since we all have our lives, it’s difficult. Kids, health problems, family problems, miscellaneous problems. In the end I wanted to thank all you you who have helped me and continue to help me. I know some of you can’t anymore, hope you get well soon and see better days. Hugz!

 

For those that want to stay in the loop but have only 3min to read things here is the summary:

  • I think I found a programmer for my Ernest origin story RPG, but for now we’re doing a smaller game to improve our game developing muscles and after that we’ll see if we can do the RPG.

  • And last but not least I’ve opened a shop on Itch.io and uploaded some freebies there. I will continue to upload some more stuff there as well as the games when they are done. I think it’s easier to find my stuff there than on Patreon. Let me know which format you prefer. I prefer using Patreon because it’s easier for me to keep track and give you your rewards when donating. You can donate to me on Itch just like on Twitch.

Wish you a happy Easter, hugs!
