#i mean to make some proper fanart for that book sometime
A friend was asking me to upload some examples of my recent sketches. I haven’t posted anything here in an embarrassingly long time so here are a bunch of the most recent pages from my moleskine under the cut. I didn’t photoshop anything out so there are also some song lyrics, drawing ideas, and me whining about the ending of Mass Effect 3. Also lots of variations on a bug lady. I have been reading Perdido Street Station and have spent a lot of my break time trying to get Lin right.
I want to put your Gone Home art on a canvas and hang it in my home. Is that OK?
I’d be flattered! It’s not a very big picture though.
If you come off anon I could submit it to you in a larger format with a signature so it will print better. Oh wait, nevermind. Apparently I forgot to scale the thing down before submitting it. Go right ahead then. I appreciate you asking first! I would appreciate knowing who you are though, just to keep track.
Hi! I'm the writer of Gone Home. Just wanted to let you know the team really likes your fanart of the game. I set it as my phone wallpaper! Cheers, and thanks for playing :-) -steve
OH MY GOSH!! I am so honored!!
There is nothing I could say about your game that hasn’t already been expressed more eloquently by so many professional reviewers, but I wanted to show how much I enjoyed your team’s work and wanted to encourage others to enjoy it too! The way you layered all these really moving, personal stories into the exploration of a house and made us feel close to characters we only know through their belongings was brilliant. Thank you so much for creating such a moving experience! I’m really glad you guys enjoyed my little tribute!
#also i am going to be gushing about the game further in a little podcast this week!

Sherlock’s mind palace
Apart from it being a masterpiece of montage, this scene is so emotionally disturbing. Yes, he’s stunning, absolutely beautiful, showed in the middle of the rawness of the process of deducing. His uniqueness, being special, above everything ordinary, above average human potential shows here. You can’t look away - it’s hypnotising, but at the same time you want to because it’s so distressing to see him like possessed by this genius, by his brain, by this monster inside him. Living beast, feeding on all these tiniest associations, subtle hints, directions, words, slogans, images, tiniest bits of the whole wide universe ever surrounding him until these scraps form final solution. But before it comes to this the whole “ritual” looks almost painfully ecstatic, like he’s on high, beside himself, barely managing, being on the edge, and at the same time nothing could tear him away he’s exactly where he wants to be, belonging, complete, ABSOLUTE. It’s like one step too far and he snaps – done, swallowed by madness, turned into machine on the loop until he burns and turns into ashes along with his brain. You can feel that burden of his MIND, how his brain is a separate living being, forcing him to feed it all the time, taking control, driving away everything else but the purest intellect. Devouring him as a person, as a human entity, while fed. This scene shows so intensely the genius, Sherlock’s greatest asset that is his greatest tragedy. This scene shows how this blessing of his is also his curse threatening his humanity, stability, emotional well-being. It shows how he stands on the edge of abyss all the time and one step too far and he’s falling.
His mind palace is basically the Shiba Inu meme.
I feel bad I haven’t posted art in a while. It’s all just been practice sketching and 3d modeling lately.
Here’s a few of the drawings I’ve been doing copying from framexframe.
Forever mad one of the most handsome and attractive Disney princes spent most of the movie as a frog.
Oh gosh. That babysitter video! I know that feeling of kids doing odd (and sometimes terrifying things). I sat for these twins once who just lived for scaring sitters and they had fake blood. Well one of the boys doused himself in the stuff and a knife as well and stumbled into the living room where I was and just says "I told him it was my toy." Needless to say I was was freaking out. And to think, they were only 10! But anyways, I loved your video and I can't wait for the finished product!
AHAHAHAH oh my gosh that is terrible and hilarious! At least in this instance the kid wasn’t TRYING to scare me! Kids are great but they can also find inventive ways to make you want to cry/scream/vomit simultaneously. I once (accidentally!) had a field trip chaperon thinking I had fallen into a lava flow.
To the anon regarding what happened to “Billy” (I changed his name for the storyboard):
