You know me. I freaking love sci-fi. Most especially when it comes to androids. I love sci-fi games and sci-fi movies and sci-fi books. So of course I was stoked for Detroit: Become Human. Detroit: Become Human was actually based on a short created by Quantic Dream to showcase the real-time processing power of the PlayStation 3 (at the time). If you haven’t seen it, you can view it below. Read more “Robot Partner: Detroit: Become Human Fanart, 2018”
As an artist, you’re constantly plagued with the idea of a work being “finished” and “done”. When is a work done? When should you stop making changes to it? While some artists might say “never”, there’s definitely a point when you’re working on a piece and you’ve got to just stop. When is that point?

I don’t often yack about this kind of stuff on my blog as it’s pretty much exclusively an art blog, but I recently bought a Raspberry Pi B+ that I thought I could use as a lower powered Plex Media Server rather than having my (dying) iMac run constantly. This is both in an attempt to prolong the life of my iMac and to help my incredibly high electric bill (whoops). While there are lots and lots of tutorials on how to set up Plex Media Server on a Raspberry Pi B+, I couldn’t find one that went through all of the steps I needed. So I’m going to compile them all here!
