Day 20

Im still a week behind on the July Sketch-A-Day. I should be able to catch up durring Thunderdome this week.

Here is a quick sketch of my second favorite character in LOL. Orianna is an incredible champ. Everything about her is so unique and interesting. If I did not suck so bad with her, she would definately be my main mid. As it stands, she is far too skill based for me. I will stick to my Ziggs and Lux mid picks for now. :P


I have played thousands of games. There are maybe 100 that I have had a wide range of emotions about. Of those, there are maybe 15 that I have laughed outlound, been upset and even angry about. Of those, Katamari has pulled off the greatest range of emotion for me. No epic storyline or dramatic million dollar cutscenes needed.

I have had extreme fear of the giant monster dog that keeps knocking things off my katamari and the incredible joy of finally being large enough to scare him and make him run away. Then chasing him across the level and finally cornering him. I laughed maniacally as I run him over and watch his now tiny legs flailing around in my giant ball. BWAHAHAHA! Then I look at the timer and realize the level is almost over. I panic as I think about how disapointed my father is going to be if I dont acheive a decent score or pick up enough 'shiny things' or whatever the goal for this specific level happens to be. Its mad dash time picking up everything I can. Suddenly I realize, I have already surpassed the target goal and Im on one of the best rolls in a long time. I find a swimming pool full of mirors, diamond rings and other shiny things and roll them all up with 2 seconds to spare. YES!!! The level ends with my fathers emotionless face summoning me home on the royal rainbow. I wait patiently through the loading screen feeling pretty good about my performance, then the King of the Cosmos speaks... "This is quite pathetic. Did you even try?"

I felt happiness, fear, excitement, panic, nervous, stress, pride, suprise, anger and sadness all in the span of 3 minutes playing Katamari. GG Namco.
