Anthro Cyberia Heart by Jdan-S
Anthro Cyberia Heart
As a follow-up to my two previous deviations, here's another anthro conversion of an OC. None other than my robo-pony, Cyberia Heart! :aww:

Been gone for a long while after running into problems with my laptop and Xbox 360 one after another, but I tried to get back on track and worked on this while sorting things out. I've just about adapted to Linux Mint by now. In a way, it's actually a good move since it granted me access to an updated version of MyPaint, one of the main drawing programs I use. The new line tool with the ability to make smooth curves really helped with this pic! =D

Created with Sketch Club (iPad) and MyPaint (Linux). Plus minor edits in GIMP.

After running some basic recovery tools, I can now get Windows XP to boot normally in a usable (albeit slower and error prone) state. I still can't decide whether to try and apply a quick fix to the firewall and antivirus not being recognized or to perform a clean/repair install altogether (could be that some entries in the registry got corrupted during the interrupted shut down). For now, I plan to use XP as a secondary, offline OS.

I've also decided to try out one of the many Linux distributions available. After backing up all important files to a new external HDD, burning and trying out a couple of live DVDs and reading up on tutorials on how to manage HDD partitions to prepare for installation, I was able to get the laptop to dual boot into XP and Linux Mint.

Right now, I've installed the Cinnamon edition of Mint 17. It runs really well so far, but I'd like to spend more time to properly evaluate it. Some highlights would be that it was able to load my monitor calibration settings right away and it has support for Wacom tablets out-of-the-box. Though I still have concerns about other things like whether this new OS causes the laptop's components to heat up more than XP.

Well in any case, I'm due for an upgrade sooner or later since I've been using this laptop for around 4-5 years. Still, I prefer to replace things only when necessary, so I'll see if I can still make things work.

==============================

Also, it seems that it's just one hardware failure after another. Now the Xbox 360 just went red dot on me. At least I can continue to play the current 360 game I was preoccupied with since I also got it for the Vita (Blazblue CS:EX). I'm also gonna have to see if anything can be done to fix it, but I'll probably end up having to get a replacement. I'm mostly playing on portables these days anyway, so this is something that can wait. 
Bad news, I'm afraid. :worry:

My laptop, where I do almost all of my work, just crashed completely the other day when I was about to shut it down. It was unable to reboot properly afterwards. But for the time being, I was able to get it to start up again with the OS installation disc. Unfortunately things are now very buggy, and the system seems to be compromised as important things like the firewall and antivirus currently cannot be detected by the OS. I need to pinpoint what exactly got corrupted and figure out how to fix it. Worst case scenario, I'll just have to backup, do a clean install and set up everything from the beginning.

So working on new stuff is unlikely, and going online using the laptop is ill-advised right now. I can at least browse using other devices, but I can't really submit anything. Sorry guys, but I'm gonna need a good amount of time to evaluate my options and sort this out.

Following Niho's anthro pic, here's another one for my French-speaking, violin-playing dark angel, Niki.

Sketch, lineart and shading in MyPaint, and everything else in Photoshop.

It seems that text-heavy adventure games always manage to pull me away from everything else I normally do. Last time, Virtue's Last Reward kept me from working on any new deviations until I got all the endings (as well as revisiting 999). Now, it's Corpse Party.

Both PSP games were on sale recently as a 2-for-1 bundle, and I've been playing through both games non-stop these past few days. I've finished them by now, but I might play just a bit more to get the endings I've missed. It's been a great experience overall, I haven't played a horror game as chilling as this in a while!

Corpse Party has also reignited my interest for Yume Nikki, .flow, Ib and similar surrealistic horror games done in RPG Maker. Not about to abandon drawing ponies, but I now feel like revisiting what I was interested in immediately before the Brony fandom. Expect the usual amount of "DAWW"-inducing deviations in my gallery, but I might mix it up with a bit of "WTF" every now and then! ;p
