Hey, I'm still around. Sort of. I've been kind of taking a break or something like that from deviantArt. I've been working on things, but I'm nowhere near being finished with anything to a point that I want to post it here.
I've been kind of busy as of late. Not much to talk about, though. Life goes on.
Never thought I'd say it, but I've been kicking around the possibility I might just get a Tumblr page to dump all my fandom /fancharacter nonsense in. I've noticed the GW2 fandom community over there is much more robust than here on dA and seems at first glance, kind of friendly and decent. Besides, I made a test anon-submission to one of the blogs I like poking around from time to time, and it was sort of well-received. That was nice.
I'm not sure though. I might. I might not. We'll see.
Not to say I'm leaving here anytime soon, I've merely been a bit quiet lately and it might be that way until further notice. Anyway, as far as art-type things go, I've been focusing more on my personal portfolio webpage and Facebook artist page as of late anyway. If anyone wants to see (and follow/like/whatever), send me a Note and I'll send the link to you.
In other frivolous news, I posted a tweet about Infected Mushroom on Twitter, and the official account page for them added it to the page's Favorites.
Wow, if the guys in IM themselves are in charge of the Twitter page, they acknowledged that I exist. How very sweet.
Music Feature: Orphaned Land + Ego Fall
So, I was poking around YouTube lately, on the hunt for some new metal music to explore. I came across the band Orphaned Land while clicking through the related videos list, and they do not disappoint at all. I love how they fuse Middle Eastern folk music and metal together, it sounds pretty cool- and the messages they usually convey in their songs generally emphasize the call/desire for peace and brotherhood, which I really like.
This song gave me shivers, like good shivers. Also, mm, those hypnotic ending vocal harmonies.
I know I've featured Ego Fall before, but I've been feeling in the mood for their music these past few days. The bouncy upbeat folk-influenced parts in the song are fun, and the vocal melody from 1:44 through 2:04- not to be missed. It's catchy.
