Cords -Color- by zarla Cords -Color- by zarla
Me and my brother Alix. We've played video games almost our entire lives. They've carried us through life, but have also dragged us down.


I drew this sometime in the summer of 03, I think. Around that time I first got my tablet, and this was the first picture I ever tried to ink with it.
I can't really think of a picture that sums me up more than this one. Video games are my life, I'm serious. This picture really means a lot ta me, a lot like my Dreaming While I Wake picture [link] I do love video games so much. I really do.
But again, this picture is fairly old. There are random proportion problems here and there. So, I decided to go back and reink it. I thickened out most of the lines, fixed some random errors here and there...not all of them, I couldn't do that that easily, but some of them. It looks a bit better now.

Dreaming While I Wake and Cords are both the same basic idea, video games as an escape and video games as both a blessing and a curse, but this one I think has a more optimistic feel and I think it's a better representation of me (hahaha, since, you know, Zar is ACTUALLY IN THIS ONE).

Haha, let's see, from what I can remember...there should be controllers/peripherals from the NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, Gamecube, Dreamcast, Playstation, Playstation 2....and then I think I threw the Power Glove and the Virtual Boy in there as well. I THINK IT'S BEEN A WHILE
No wait there's a Game Boy adapter/link cable and a Game Boy Advance adapter/link cable as weeelll that's all I can remember.

Heh. I know just how you feel. I have few fonder memories than that of my sister and I playing old nintendo games like Battletoads, Marble Madness, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, North and South, Ice Climbers, etc...

As for the picture itself, I really dig it. The wire-webbed wings. Very keen.
