No... I don't do drugs... And I am not gay...
"Edit: I don't mean "look, junkies, gay people, Iím not one of those weirdos"... i meant to say it's not inspired by me being in touch with my faminine side... nor did it come out of my drug induced stupor (not into drugs...)... (Thanks GenoPenquin for being very sensitive to other people's feeling and making me add this comment)"

Yes, I've been playing Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Shadow of Colossus... They are both incredible games.

Let me try to expalin how this piece came about... I was reacting to gaymer's recent vote on most "gay" character... which happens to be Tingle from the zelda series. So, I wanted to depict him in more macho representation... But, with clothes like his... it's hard to avoid making him appear homoerotic...

So, I was thinking... 'Well, he is such a small fella in the game... what if I make him into a giant? Why... Link can hunt him down! Like in the Shadow of Colossus! Stale Altoids! Batman! I got it!'


That's how it came about... Pretty silly eh?

Well, with this piece, I must announce that I will be taking a little break from DA for the month of September. I have two huge personal projects of mine that I must finish by the end of the month. And I must devote my time into it. I will still visit and comment and stuff... I don't want to be bombarded with 1000 comments at the end of the month... You know what I mean?

So, have fun everyone! I will post more stuff when I get back!

Oh... BTW... Look EA!!! That PS3/next gen graphic demo you recently showed? You know...? The procedural character's eyes following the object and proper footing in the game? Why... it's already in the current gen's console!!! link has been doing it for several years in the Wind Waker!!! wow... something doesn't sound right..

Ever played "Color Changing Tingle's Love Balloon Trip" or "Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland" or anything like that? lol
I used to think Tingle was really cool, but ever since Wind Waker I couldn't remember why. XD; lol

I found a playthrough to watch for one of them on youtube.
The other I couldn't find a playthrough of, or at least not in english...
