Yesterday was Anzac Day here in Australia and while I was filming we paid our respects by buying bages and ANZAC biscuits. 

I couldn't help but question the ceremonies that played out as the provocative language used like referring to Anzacs as "warriors" rather then soliders, how they died to protect freedom around the world, and how the ANZAC solider is "the representation of an Australian at their best" 

quotes like "the one true spirit will must all follow is the Anzac one" kept coming up again and again, with only a small amount of the ceremony left to actually reflect on how war in general is a bad thing, but their was not a statement about wether or not these wars we fought were actually bad. 

When i go to a Memorial Day gathering it's not to glorify these men as martyr's or trying to find right in their actions. But to pay respect not just to Australians that died in wars but to the victims of all wars that have accured. I see Anzac Day as a warning to generations to come about how war is bad for everyone. But that doesn't seem to be the case for politicians :/

"learn from the example set by the Anzac warriors who faught on our famous battlefields, they represented Australia at its best"  :Tony Abbott


war is bad theirs no good victims or bad victims, just human stupidity trying to find right in wrong to justify war. Anzac day is not a recruiting tool. It's a day of reflection on learning from the past, and i intened  to keep it that way. 
For the last month myself and my good mates at Uni have been working out our pre-production phase of a short film we are making called "Full Ciricle" a story about a local boy learning to fight not just to get revenge on a local bully but to also gain self confidence. 

the story itself wasn't written by me but was written by "Tom" who will be editing the film, while he gave me the role to Direct his short film which I am very greatful for :) so far the  short film has attracted our teachers (who are actors in the industry) to help get funding for equipment which I am greatful thankful for as raising money for any short film is a challenge.

So far we have hit some speedbumps involving actors which has caused myself and the producer to take more of our own time to find people to cast. Also this is essentially my first proper film I will be directing so it will be a huge lesson in understanding how to convey my ideas across to an actor while allowing them to contribute and understand what is the idea behind certain scenes :nod:

so yeah this has taken up most of my time :XD: you need to work hard for no pay just to get onto the radar lol ;) a teacher told me last year "you need to be kinda crazy to want to work in the film industry" it makes sense now ;) 

Well in other news I have also been thinking about an AVP character contest focusing on the importance of the human characters in AVP :nod: the contest might involve people creating their own colonial character and making a backstory behind them. if anyone is interested in helping creating said contest or judging let me know :nod: 

And last but not least ;) I humbly ask those I have promised art please remind me of what work I have  said I would create for you :P I need to keep track of art I owe ^^; and thank you for you patience with me, since I'm anything but a focused artists :P

Drop a message to let me how you're all going :dance: as I always love to know ;) hope everyone's year has been going well so far :D 

peace and love. Christo :peace:

Page: Nothing says action hero like jumping off a building from an explosion :dance: 
having knocked off one foe, Flinch now needs to either take on the multiple attackers or bug out and call it even ;) I doubt the multiple hunters will let him just walk away now that he has declared war :o

This is just an excuse to make a comic really, but nothing too technical story wise :XD: but if people enjoy what they see i might stretch it out to be longer then expected :D

Its been a while since I drew a predator I think :XD: nice to actually draw one that i'm kinda happy with ;) paying a few homages to the Predator design from the original comics as I still think they looked the coolest :D glowing eyes I also like a lot :)

About time I found something to force me to draw, as my technique is hitting a bit of a stagnation :XD: comics help me sometimes as it motivates you to draw lots and experiment :P
well enjoy and i will try to smash out a few more pages soon :dance:

Gotta love how some people and groups on DA renamed themself and members to the new alien types names/renamed existing ones to what they were called in colonial marines when it came and how epic and canon it is etc, now with Alien V it isnt canon anymore but the lurker, spitter etc names remains and not a word in those groups about Alien V or the alien isolation game :XD: Seems PR and hype and commercials is everything xD
Wish the lurker was called drone as they were called in the past and still is besides aliens colonial marines.

Also how so many groups have been silent about Alien isolation which is an awesome and perfect alien game but spammed tons for aliens colonial marines -.- ugh xD

Isn't publicity so important right? ;) some of the biggest alien fans I know refuse to play isolation usually because they say "colonial marines was enough" :XD:

while i try to be nice to people that use ACM alien types for OC's. personally I just hate ACM so much, and I think you know why ;) the unethical practices used to simply make money and strenghen borderlands 2 was just such a slap to the alien franchies' face. 

I jut wish they never made it, and am still wishing gearbox go bankrupt and are shut down. 

Also remember ACM was much more mainstream ;) as it involves guns, shooting shit, and the U.S. army :XD: while isolation is focused on survival and having little power :nod: 

but I can understand why people don't want to play it as the fuck ups in alien games are kinda off putting. Hell I was highly critical of isolation before it came out :) plus tones of mainstream game critics gave it shit scores.

Some fans they are to not want to play it for Colonial marines was bad :XD: Hell  has been bad aliens games before and some neutral ones and some good ones, I have played them all so know it very well xD Here is a list of all games:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_…
Can add at least 2 new alien games are in early development at the moment, just on planning stage so far, rumors say they will be connected/based to the Alien 5 movie.

Well your wish might come true since Alien 5 will take place directly after Aliens and will remove alien colonial marines, alien 3-4 from the canon series.

You are right there and its sad causals think so and just go after easy FPS games and publicity, the same about some smaller game reviewers think Alien isolation wasnt that good, most game magazines and bigger sites have given it grades from: 6/10 and upwards which is really good for alien game, IGN and others ranked it as the best game of 2014 :)
Depends on where one read and who reviewed it, most causal reviewers seem to give easy games good games and hardcore ones bad grades xD

Well lime myself I'm quite a conservative when it comes to the alien franchise ;) after the failures and just insulting representations of Xeno's has made me quick to doubt anything new :P colonial marines was the "final straw" and now I rarely trust any word about anything alien related until I see the final result ;) 

not ot saying I hate the colonial marines, they are an important part of the universe :) but I love Alien for the creature, that's the first, second, and third reason why I love Alien and Aliens :XD: but it will be interesting to see such a take ;) 

well i really don't care if Alien is popular or unpopular with the masses, I will continue to love it :nod: no matter how many anti Xeno, Predator, or super hero comic fans try to melt my beliefs ;) obviously I'm not a true aliens fan as I love AVP, and not a true AVP fan since I side with Xeno's, not to mention I write and create characters that destory the Xenomorph identity :XD: and I trully don't care what people think of that ;) 

reviews are fucked ;) it's all opinion, ;) I usualky go by how many reviews are positive or negative, it's the only way to judge stuff now. And even then that's not reliable :XD:
