Games you should Play: Bravely Default

I promise I have a good reason for posting about video games on my page. It is no secret that I’m a huge nerd, I sell video games for a living. Recently, I’ve been playing Bravely Default, a new game by Square Enix for the Nintendo 3DS. It was released in the states in February this year.

The reason I chose to post about it here, is because it is one of the most visually stunning games I’ve ever played on a Nintendo hand held. I love the art style of the characters, I absolutely love the hand drawn and pieced together animated backgrounds, and the story is awesome. Visually, it is one of the most stunning games I’ve ever seen. The city of Florem, so far, is probably my favorite town thus far, with its extremely bright, vivid color.

It is also no secret that I tend to criticize and appreciate movies, music videos, and video games for their art styles and directions, so If you were expecting more of a review on the game, I apologize, but if you enjoy a good JRPG, give Bravely Default a try. I promise it wont disappoint you.

ARTISTS YOU SHOULD SEE: MEAGO ON DEVIANTART

ARTISTS YOU SHOULD SEE: MEAGO ON DEVIANTART

OK, I’ve been following this artist for a long time now, and every time she posts I get super giddy because I’m so excited to see what she’s made recently. She has such a cute anime style and just makes some of the cutest character concepts. She busts out several drawings a week, it’s insane. I wish I could pump out the amount that she does in a short amount of time.

Based in Poland, she is predominantly a digital artist, and creates character after character, and has also been writing a comic that she posts on Deviant Art every now and then.

So if you appreciate a good anime artist, check out her work.

I was stumbling around Instagram and came upon this gem of an artist. I don’t know much about her, other than she’s a portrait artist from Poland, but take a look at her work, and follow her on Instagram! I’m very impressed with her work.
