the Kobb Cave

Welcome to Kobb's little tumblr! This is supposed to be an art blog, but when I hit busy times the reblogs can outnumber the arts a little. If you want just the art, this tag is for you! If you only want to see original stuff, my fanart-free tag is right here.

Currently I'm drawing for a webcomic called Beyond the Western Deep! Update reminders are usually posted here weekly.

Quick update on the status of the BWD page: My art mojo is really not on this week, and I’ve got a really big storm incoming right now. So, the page is probably going to officially be Late. I’m so sorry, I’ve been bogged down in redraws when attempt after attempt at inking goes wrong. The update will come… but it’ll probably take some more time. Keep an eye out for the update post, I guess. :S

Tomorrow’s BWD update is going to be another lineart page. I started a new part-time job this week and am still hammering out my new BWD-drawin’ schedule, apologies D:
And for a little meat to this PSA post, I decided to put what we posted with last week’s page on Tumblr as well: the BWD banner we ordered for our table at Baltimore Comic Con! Came out pretty nice, I think!
We’re also planning to have bookmarks with this image available, if you like that sort of thing. c:

Sometimes I wonder…is the reason the 2k3 not remembered/liked as much as the OT and Nick show because it lacks nostalgia?

I mean, that’s the reason I was turned off by it in the first place.  I saw these serious turtles and April not being a reporter and I was like ‘FFFF whatever’…and make the stupid mistake of not giving it a chance long ago.

What do you guys think?

It basically boils down to a sum of all the factors I’ve seen mentioned so far:

1) Most people at the time immediately rejected it because it was different from the ’80s cartoon. People still slam 2k3 for its “weak” humor, but I dunno man, I chuckle at a ton of stuff in that show. (I have a pretty dry sense of humor though?)

2) Another set of viewers who might have been interested saw the “4Kids” name and noped right out before giving it a look. I was never into anime, so this was not a hurdle for me at the time.

3) It was pretty tough to find merchandise at all after the first couple seasons, and it was never even a quarter as hugely promoted as Nick’s TMNT.

4) It’s also harder to make fans after the fact because the DVDs are out of print and hecka expensive secondhand - not to mention that they never did release any (chronological) collected edition of season 3. There’s stuff on YouTube, fortunately, but it’s not quite the same.

Ra’Haabi is pleased. This armor, with its golden sheen, makes Khajiit look very handsome indeed. He will have to look into modifying the hood, though - nice though it is, Ra’Haabi does not like having his face covered. It might make him look less trustworthy.

While I wait for the newest version of Dwarf Fortress to approach stability, I’ve started a fort in good ol’ 40d. Reactions so far:

  • Not having played any version in over a year, it’s scary how good my muscle memory still is for this game.
  • I miss the fortress mode combat log. That really was an important improvement.
  • NO CAT YOU AREN’T INJURED YOU JUST DON’T HAVE THUMBS
  • I don’t miss how tedious the military is to organize post-40d :D mmm two-keystroke emergency drafts~
  • <cackling evilly as fledgling soldier dorfs cut each other to ribbons sparring in the barracks>

A little warmup sketch. I&#8217;ve been playing Mush lately, which is a cool little multiplayer browser game. Imagine Mafia + FTL, taking place realtime over the course of several days. On my current ship, the Mush danger has passed, and Janice has taken enough damage to kill two people over several planet expeditions, barely surviving her last one.
We&#8217;ve decided that she&#8217;s now a cyborg, with all the major injuries she&#8217;s had. Add to that her amazing luck at repairing broken doors on the first try, and I had to give that robot arm a wrench attachment. X)

I&#8217;ve been messing around with some ideas for a big BWD print - one of which involves Lutren sharkhunters. So this evening I played with a rough design for what these tough fellas might look like.

This was where we left last night&#8217;s Pathfinder session - fresh off defeating a doge pack and about to check out a ruin for some kinda relic.
