Hello! Blast from the Past
« on: December 13, 2018, 04:02:06 AM »
Hello!

None of you would probably remember me, but my name's Blueoriontiger, or Blueorion back then. I was a member on the board back in 2004-2005, having found it while looking for a copy of Chex Quest 2 to play. One particular contribution my 17-18 year old self had contributed was a complicated crossover fanfic with Chex Quest, involving people like Starfire from Teen Titans and Ducky from Land Before Time. I went to college in 2005 and forgot about the board.

Found it back in 2016 during a life crisis, looking up someone that I used to know that liked the story then. I poofed for another two years and finally got to talking. And that talking led to me looking around here and some other things. I figured it wouldn't hurt to stick my nose back in and introduce myself.

So yes, not much of an intro, I think. But there we go. :)

Thanks! I don't recognize anyone really except Boingo (I remember your TUCQ project) and wayc, so I'll have to learn about everyone all over again. :D

So question, what's with this  :whale ?  I've seen it a few places on the board and couldn't find an origin. Just passing curiosity.

Also, are you a Touhou fan xbolt? That's Remilia in your avatar, right?

I joined mid '05, so I just missed you. And that is indeed Remilia in my avatar. Recognizing Touhou makes you cooler. :cirnoware

Whaleware ( :whale ) started in 2009 as a joke in 'The "EVIL" Game II' thread, and it caught on. Eventually it became our forum mascot. We even set up a whole website. (The extension page seems to have broken at some point tho)

Ahh, site mascot. Cute! That's an interesting gag that's running. I might try drawing him sometime. :)

I do a variety of art and doodles, though I've only really been utilizing them a lot in the past 3 years. Trying to develop myself a whole lot more to do something high-end professional with that. 

Thank you! Yep, found out about Touhou at the end of 2009 in a slump. Been hooked on the culture since, namely the doujin music and the characters. Extremely terrible at the game, though. Sanae is a good girl, otherwise. <--My doing

More Thurston art is always good!

I like your style. I couldn't draw my way out of a wet paper bag. See:

That'll happen sometime, I'll post it somewhere in General Discussion when I get around with that.

Thank you! So I see. :P I swear I've seen this somewhere before while randomly Google searching, but I'm not sure. :S

Here, in aiding to get out of your paper bag (I think I made the eyes too big, though)

It took about 15 minutes more or less. Simpler things can be replicated very quick. When it starts to go into figures, takes me about 30 or so minutes for my quickie gesturals, and maybe 45 for the high-detailed stuff. I usually stick with the former, though.

Well, I guess I beat a record there with fanart of Newmaps. I never heard of it, but I'll have to look that up if it's a mod!

I'll actually deliver one more thing. Touhou goes with everything, even Chex Quest.

Master Spark works as a zorcher. That's good to know! :marisaware

Newmaps is a mod Super Searcher and I made together a long, long time ago. Hence the MS Paint flemoid. The engine can have some trouble running on newer Windows, though. If it does for you, I can walk you through the hacky fix.

Oh wow, we have Touhou Whalewares? Nice! :reimuware

Sure, I'll let you know if I run into any issues. :)
