Here's my midterm for my lighting class last quarter.  Taken from:
Kitchen
You are in the kitchen of a white house.  A table seems to have been used recently for the preparation of food.  A passage leads to the west and a dark staircase can be seen leading upward.  A dark chimney leads down and to the east is a small window which is open
On the table in an elongated brown sack, smelling of hot peppers.
A bottle is siting on the table
The glass bottle contains:
     A quantity of water


Living Room
You are in the living room.  There is a doorway to the east, a wooden door with strange gothic lettering to the west, which appears to be nailed shut, a trophy case, and a large oriental rug in the center of the room.  Above the trophy case hangs an elvish sword of great antiquity.
A battery-powered brass lantern is on the trophy case.

Nice, the rug looks like its from Nemesis... btw shouldn't "A battery-powered brass lantern is on the trophy case.", not on the floor?

Well, I just took a look through all of the fanart.  I definitely like them.  It was nice to see Zork fanart, as I have never come across it before.  It brings back a sense of nostalgia.  Which is stupid, because Return to Zork was my first Zork game and the Zork Trilogy art is making me the most nostalgic.

And nice job on the White House living room.  Not how I picture it, but nice.

lol. Roughly. That does include finding the clip art and trying a bunch of other patterns and styles before settling on this one. Putting it together probably took 2 hours.

To celebrate the site going back up, I've botched up an alert level chart on Photoshop to amuse all returning (or so I'd hope!). I know it pales in comparison to the ones more time was spent on, but it was made on a whim anyway. :)

Pretty amusing.  It gave me a good chuckle.

Here is a commission I had done from the Enchanter trilogy prequel short story that I might try to turn into a mini game.

This depicts my young Enchanter trilogy PC, Chrys attempting to 'borrow' a magic book from the Anthar Enchanter's Guild. Those roses are poisonous and he is quite afraid the gargoyle might eat him. Going back through the window would lead to the worst fate of all... humiliation in front of the whole Guild!

Lately I've been experimenting in my spare time with how to make an image appear to be from older games. ZGI is a fairly recent style, but I thought some absurd warning labels were missing from the totemizer (yes, that means I have given in and played ZGI before I had planned to; I was just too anxious to see more of its design). If only I had that font that was on the sign outside the monastery...

Enjoy.
