Garuda summon sky (scenic)

Garuda summon creates a huge dark/cloudy sky box. It’s rather pretty in a muted way.
If you look at the top center of the first picture, the black dot is Garuda. 😀

Also … Happy New Year.

I went to the store last night and bought two random bottles of cabernet sauvignon. I almost never drink (maybe once or twice a year at most) but was in the mood/it’s a holiday right. I know absolutely zip about wine, but I can confidently say that the difference between a $50 bottle of wine and a $20 bottle of wine is …. thirty dollars. 😛  After initial tasting I then “ruined” both by dumping a mix of 7-Up and diet Mt. Dew into them for a strongish “wine cooler” effect. All alcoholic beverages are much better tasting when you can taste a lot less of the actual alcohol.

Many happy returns and all that.

On the boat, Bismark

Realized I’d never done this fishing quest, and I needed it to fish for the tuna and get the recipe.  While I loved the fishing in the main game, fishing from the boat is/was tedious/dull and generally unrewarding, so I’ve barely done anything on/with it.  Anyway, it took me a while but I caught my fish/recipe and I can now ignore the boat again.

For some reason during the cutscene, Prompto and Gladio turned invisible on me.  >.>

Noctis, flower field, sunset, 4k

It’s hard to find ready-made wallpapers that work well the game cutouts, imo. Angle is always wrong, it’s too realistic vs. game graphics, lighting is wrong vs. the shadows on the character etc. I used some spotlights to try to make Noct’s face be more lit while his arm is darker (since sun is “behind” him) but yeah, not sure that came out very convincing, heh. Personally I actually like them just on the dark grey background I cut them out of, but most would find that boring I guess. Dark grey is a nice desktop color tho.

Btw, it’s hilarious how I can type these paragraphs and it doesn’t seem like all that much, but then I check the site on the cellphone and it’s this HUGE WALL OF TEXT. Perspective.

Vesperpool, sunset/twilight

I hope these (and any others past or future) look ok and aren’t too bright or too dark and seem sharp enough. All depends on what tv/monitor settings /calibration one is using I suppose. I always check them on the larger tv and smaller pc monitor and if it looks fine on both I go with it. I’m not sure how well the file compression level I typically use would work for a very large TV screen (like 55″+) tho.  *shrug*

Common scenery


…bah, landscapes in games never look right to me. Especially in games where draw distance is a factor. I’ve been running around hoping to catch something cool/nice but haven’t had the patience to stand around waiting in spots for sunset/twilight or other best lighting conditions.  😀
