The Gaming Dojo Discord

Front page of The Gaming Dojo Discord

For the past 3 months I have been working very hard on updating all of my social media sites, getting them and myself ready for landing a job in the gaming industry.  Whether it was this blog that you are on right now, my Youtube channel, my online, living portfolio – or any of the many others –  I felt like I needed to start marketing myself once again, but with an injection of new content and fervor!

As for some of the next several posts (among other content), I will be briefly posting about each of these different sites, and giving out the link to said website.  If you, whoever is reading this, does not feel like waiting for me to post about them, you can always go ahead and check them out within the “Sites” page, in between the “Games” page and search bar, to see where I linger within the webs!

So, this is The Gaming Dojo Discord Channel, where we talk to one another about everyday life, video game culture, and possibly projects we are all working on.  We also have an in-house game (built from the ground up by Ronin Yeti Designs) called “Unsung Saviors,” that is constantly evolving.  Come join us and see what’s going on!

Not only do I keep my Ronin Yeti Designs sites up-to-date, but I also run a second type of “group;” by the name of “The Gaming Dojo.”  So, here is the official The Gaming Dojo Facebook Page, which sadly hasn’t been getting much love as of late (mostly because I consolidated and integrated a lot of Gaming Dojo stuff into Ronin Yeti Designs), but as time goes by, perhaps I will have more stuff to post there.

So, here is the offical Ronin Yeti Designs Sketchfab Page, where I have uploaded interactive models, but sadly that was over a year ago and I haven’t been using this site much.  I hope, when I get more time, I will be able to upload other models I have done since then, and maybe even newer ones!

Photograph Manipulation #1 – “Bliss at Yuko-En”

My first real success at photograph manipulation

Here recently I’ve been trying to learn new skills and techniques with Photoshop, involving how to use certain tools in both traditional and not-so traditional ways.  Even though the image you see above uses a small amount of photo manipulation (and more so superimposing of another image onto this one), I still feel it’s a good example of the type of things I am trying to learn.  Just to explain briefly, all I did was create several different layers out of the original photograph of the Yuk-En Japanese garden in Georgetown, Kentucky (a picture that I took some years ago), making sure the sky, the building, the lake, and the rocks jutting out from the lake were all cut out from one another, so I could place the word “BLISS” seamlessly in between the different layers.  This image took a little longer to create than I wanted, but I feel I became more familiar with certain tools (like certain selection tools), and that’s always a plus!

My inspiration for creating such a piece came from two very different sources.  First off, the place in the image is to be the future location where myself and my fiance will be getting “joined” (or married for those less imposed to believe in varied marriage rituals).  We’ve had out eye on this location for a while, and hopefully later this year (2018), we will be betrothed under a Japanese maple (or some other such Asian plant, lol).  The second source of inspiration came from the style, design, and placement of the lettering of the word “BLISS.”  There is a very odd (but typical) video out there online from Adult Swim called “Health | Off the Air,” and during the 12 minute-long trip, in one of the beginning scenes, the giant, capitalized word “HEALTH” brazenly rises above a lake, all golden and bold.  Something about the imagery really magnetized me to it, and I certainly wanted to try my hand at the somewhat same style, in which I feel like I did!  One last thing to note, even though the word above doesn’t engender the same sense of wonder and awe the “HEALTH” version did (mostly because, I think, of the different colors they chose to use), I actually wanted to garner a more serene feeling, one that inspired in a different way.
