Summoning A New Desktop.

It's been another eventful week for me. I finally have broadband in my home after 2 failed attempts of getting DSL. I'm now the proud owner of a Comcast cable modem. Woohoo! I'll be able to transfer the large art files I get via email now in minutes instead of hours. You can also look for me more often in some online games acting as everyone's favorite target, but I might just be a little harder to hit now. ;D This isn't my 1st time having a cable modem so it's great to have one again.

Since MWSF in January, I've been anticipating this game. Anxious may even be a better term to use. Summoner's 3rd Person Fantasy adventure with its astonishing graphics, completely 3D environments and a rich RPG storyline really impressed me and I've kept my eye on it since then. So, with it's release coming up, I wanted to do a desktop in honor of it.

This week's selection was one that I've wanted to do for awhile now, but I didn't have the art I wanted to create it. I thought I was set after E3 when I got my hands on a THQ press cd, but I came across another stumbling block when the one I received seemed to only have corrupt files on it. Luckily, Todd from Volition came through with some great art that allowed me to make this desktop. Again I wanted to create one that would fit in with the desktops provided at Summoner.com almost seamlessly, which I feel I was able to do. This week's creation is titled, "Spell Casters". I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it.

A few weeks ago I unveiled the teaser trailer for my new web site. You can visit my personal site and see the teaser at Custer's Corner. Just a friendly warning that it does use the Quicktime Plug-in and you might want to be sure to have a Broadband connection because the .MOV file is 1.8 megs. This will be the last week for the trailer to be up. The title graphic is finished and now I just have to do the html for it. :)

Until then...
