Street Fighter V

From Wikipedia:-
Street Fighter (ストリートファイター Sutorīto Faitā?), commonly abbreviated as SF or スト, is a fighting game franchise by Capcom. The game’s playable characters originate from different countries around the world, each with his or her own unique fighting style. It is Capcom’s second best-selling franchise, having significant success worldwide. With its first game released in 1987 and the game has evolved through the years as well as through its many iterations, remains one of the most popular video games today.

Street Fighter V (ストリートファイターV Sutorīto Faitā Faivu?) is a fighting video game published by Capcom, who co-developed the game with Dimps. It is the fifth main numbered entry in the Street Fighter series. The game was released in February 2016 for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4, with a later release on Linux, and will feature cross-platform play between the Windows and PlayStation 4 versions.

Street Fighter V (2016)
Main article: Street Fighter V
In 2011, former Capcom employee Seth Killian suggested that Street Fighter V would arrive before 2019, saying “If I have anything to say about it, and I do, you will not have to wait ten years for Street Fighter 5.” In July 2013, Ono commented that while he desired to make a Street Fighter V for an eighth-generation console, such as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, a next-generation game would require a large staff and a large budget. He also stated that making the game a free-to-play title was an option, though he was not fully open to it, and confirmed that the game was currently not in development. In June 2014, Ono refuted claims that Street Fighter V would include a “pay to win option”, stating that Street Fighter V is still in the early planning stages.

On December 5, 2014, a teaser trailer for Street Fighter V was unintentionally released by Capcom to the public before being taken down again. The trailer mentioned that the game would be exclusive to PlayStation 4 and PC, and will enable cross platform gameplay. The official announcement was made at Sony’s PlayStation Experience event on December 6. It is currently due for release in spring 2016.

The Dream Tellers   Leave a comment



The Dream Tellers
From Wikipedia on Dream

Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur usually involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep. The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and religious interest, throughout recorded history. The scientific study of dreams is called oneirology.

Dreams mainly occur in the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep—when brain activity is high and resembles that of being awake. REM sleep is revealed by continuous movements of the eyes during sleep. At times, dreams may occur during other stages of sleep. However, these dreams tend to be much less vivid or memorable.

The length of a dream can vary; they may last for a few seconds, or approximately 20–30 minutes. People are more likely to remember the dream if they are awakened during the REM phase. The average person has three to five dreams per night, and some may have up to seven; however, most dreams are immediately or quickly forgotten. Dreams tend to last longer as the night progresses. During a full eight-hour night sleep, most dreams occur in the typical two hours of REM.

In modern times, dreams have been seen as a connection to the unconscious mind. They range from normal and ordinary to overly surreal and bizarre. Dreams can have varying natures, such as being frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. The events in dreams are generally outside the control of the dreamer, with the exception of lucid dreaming, where the dreamer is self-aware. Dreams can at times make a creative thought occur to the person or give a sense of inspiration.

Opinions about the meaning of dreams have varied and shifted through time and culture. The earliest recorded dreams were acquired from materials dating back approximately 5000 years, in Mesopotamia, where they were documented on clay tablets. In the Greek and Roman periods, the people believed that dreams were direct messages from one and/or multiple deities, from deceased persons, and that they predicted the future. Some cultures practiced dream incubation with the intention of cultivating dreams that are of prophecy.

Sigmund Freud, who developed the discipline of psychoanalysis, wrote extensively about dream theories and their interpretations in the early 1900s. He explained dreams as manifestations of our deepest desires and anxieties, often relating to repressed childhood memories or obsessions. In The Interpretation of Dreams (1899), Freud developed a psychological technique to interpret dreams and devised a series of guidelines to understand the symbols and motifs that appear in our dreams.

Also a complaint from Chuan Shin:-

Fan art, I did for V for Vendetta movie, is on Fanpop without permission nor credit. I know the references I used in the image was copyrighted in the first place that’s why I took it off from the internet. I hand-drew this image on a A3 illustration board. I don’t mind them using the image just credit me please.

Dragonfly   Leave a comment

This is my dragonfly. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
Study by Lim Chuan Shin

From Wikipedia:-
A dragonfly is a flying insect of the order Odonata.

A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata, suborder Anisoptera (from Greek ανισος anisos “uneven” + πτερος pteros, “wings”, because the hindwing is broader than the forewing). Adult dragonflies are characterized by large multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong transparent wings, sometimes with coloured patches, and an elongated body. Dragonflies can be mistaken for the related group, damselflies (Zygoptera), which are similar in structure though usually lighter in build; however, the wings of most dragonflies are held flat and away from the body, while damselflies hold the wings folded at rest, along or above the abdomen. Dragonflies are agile fliers while damselflies have a weaker, fluttery flight. Many dragonflies have brilliant iridescent or metallic colours produced by structural coloration, making them conspicuous in flight. An adult dragonfly eye has nearly 24,000 ommatidia.

Fossils of very large dragonfly ancestors in the Protodonata are found from 325 million years ago in Upper Carboniferous rocks; these had wingspans of up to about 750 mm (30 in). There are about 3000 species of Anisoptera in the world today. Most are tropical, with fewer species in temperate regions.

Dragonflies are predators, both in their aquatic larval stage, when they are known as nymphs or naiads, and as adults. Several years of their life are spent as a nymph living in freshwater; the adults may be on the wing for just a few days or weeks. They are fast agile fliers, sometimes migrating across oceans, and are often but not always found near water. They have a uniquely complex mode of reproduction involving indirect insemination, delayed fertilisation and sperm competition. During mating, the male grasps the female at the back of the head or on the prothorax, and the female curls her abdomen under her body to pick up sperm from the male’s secondary genitalia at the front of his abdomen, forming the “heart” or “wheel” posture.

Loss of wetland habitat threatens dragonfly populations around the world. Dragonflies are represented in human culture on artefacts such as pottery, rock paintings and Art Nouveau jewellery. They are used in traditional medicine in Japan and China, and caught for food in Indonesia. They are symbols of courage, strength and happiness in Japan, but seen as sinister in European folklore. Their bright colours and agile flight are admired in the poetry of Alfred, Lord Tennyson and the prose of H. E. Bates.

PS Ooophs, my big mistake of labelling sketch as grasshopper instead of dragonfly. Apologies, my friends.

I am going to start an album with my old and new pencil sketches. Lets start with some insects. Cheers!

Chuan Shin went off to stay in Kuala Lumpur after getting a job there. I am happy that he is happy and satisfied.
His own comments –
“Oh wow! Its been two months already since I started a new life here in KL… and so far I am loving it, great new job and the opportunity to meet passionate and like-minded people. Thanks to my friends, old and new, for making my transition to a new life here a breeze. If home is where the heart is, than this is it. I will continue to do art and push myself. Thanks to everybody for their support!”

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, I’ve watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
