Who hasn't tried it yet, Portal was amazing. The entire Orange Box is probably the best thing that has ever happened to the PC.
Too bad there are so few companies out there trying to elevate the video game genre so it could indeed be called "art", on par with literature, painting, theater, cinema etc. Valve is pretty much the most interesting thing happening right now, as most rest of the industry keeps pumping out mediocre third person action games.
And oh god, EA got Bioware.

thanks for the replies guys!
here's a bunch of stuff. mostly digital, a couple of oils and a few pencils in pretty much the exact opposite order.
Oh yes. I set up a studio of sorts at home (meaning I figured I can flip the mattress on its side so I have room to set stuff up) and now go about harassing friends to come model for me.. and honestly, painting with oils feels like I've gone blind, I'm a total mess at it from values to colours to edges. Mixing the right tone just fries my brain, not to mention trying to paint materials and textures. University painting courses here are nothing much to shout about either.

One thing about the first image, I know it's old, but for future reference: I think the background should stay in the background and not pop out due to contrast/saturation/colors,etc., unless you're purposely doing that for some odd effect. It's still a really solid drawing and very stylish too. I admire your skills with shadows and drapery, you really have a handle on them both, and that's impressive to someone who's just started studying them recently. Excellent stuff!
(Also, that red nose thing is getting cliché. I still don't get it-- does everyone here have sinus problems or something? Hahah, sorry, I don't mean to cramp your personal style, but I've seen it on a thousand different artists' pages, and I think you could distinguish yourself more. I know, I'm a geek for picking on something so trivial, haha.)

eminkey2003: thanks for the advice! the infamous red nose, while quite cliché is grounded on reality though. and it's just one of those stylization options thats oh-so-tempting as it usually looks quite good and adds a little variation into the picture itself (though likens the painting to other ones). Another such stylization trick is the overt reddening of knees and fingers and elbows; while quite kitsch also has a lot of aesthetic potential when used wisely. I guess I should probably start being more selective of when to use it and when to tone it down. Though I do like the alcoholic feel it usually gives : )
ccsears: thank you! I'm honored you like my stuff, I'm a fan of yours
so! I started with a new sketchbook, #6 now. The theatrically titled "Lies and Deceit and Beautiful Slaughterers" doesn't quite have the rhythm in English but that's fine. I'm glad to have something comfortable to draw in again.
