He does now, trust me!

Seriously, put the word "Pseudo" in front of something and it has been thought of before. Pseudosaurus Rex, Pseudoraptor... oh, and let's not forget the deadly Pseudocyrus. That thing is one ugly son of a...

For those that have been asking / wondering...

there is anow a rough plot synopsis up on the blog, but you may as well view it here too...

" Much speculation is afoot in the outside world as to what exactly is happening in the long-forgotten Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. A second, entirely unexplained incident in 2006 was noticed by one means or another worldwide, but little has been leaked away from the Ukrainian government - particularly to the west. The area was entirely cordoned off - not even diplomats have had access. What is certain to the western media and governments, is that the facts need to be uncovered. Old rivalries still stand in the minds and hearts of many, and all attempts to send in spies, reporters or other investigative units have failed - or simply fallen silent. Fearing the worst, the protagonist of our tale is sent in late October 2011 to uncover the facts and report back his findings.
What little is known for sure, is that there is more than a little human activity there. Satellite mapping and readings of the area has produced mixed results - sometimes none at all due to “unknown atmospheric and technological interference“. The whispers emerging from the area suggest anomalous activity - among other things. Mutations and strange, crystalline wonders; differing militias bent on control of the area for whatever purposes and by whatever means they may have - even the supernatural and extraterrestrial are not uncommon themes when discussing The Zone.… nothing is absolute, nothing is entirely doubtful.
A disgraced British war correspondent and former investigative journalist, our protagonist is well prepared for what may well await him there - and well disposed to the task at hand. Having served in every major and minor conflict since 1998, he has seen and understood more than his fair share of combat.
Haunted by the actions that ultimately brought him here and terrified by the early truths that he sees, our protagonist soon finds himself more than the mere shadow that is cast upon the place - a revelation that will shatter what little remains of his life: making him reborn in the process. His view of humanity and the world we live in is permanently disfigured as he journeys deeper in towards the dead city: Pripyat and beyond - along with the few friends he makes among the other loner-outcasts and misfits along the way.
Starting with the delivery of a body to the trader, Sidorovitch, and the conversation he eavesdrops upon, and taking him further down a dark path that makes him question humanity’s right to exist in the universe, he must clarify the mystery of The Zone…
…for he has nothing else left in the world."

far more happenign on the blog than here (but your thoughts and criticisms are always welcome!)...

STUFF!

Well, I've generally been pretty quiet here for the last month or so.
I've managed to put together a loose draft to work on, and managed a few more pieces of conceptual artwork.
I've mainly been working on an animated sequence for a music video of recent (check my http://cyruscrashtest.co.uk for more on that if it interests you) and its really taken up all of my time - but 2000 frames of hand drawn / painted animation would!

Right now I've got a little time to put some more serious effort back into this so i have a request:

I DESPERATELY need high res, high quality screens of exosuits!
- My own screen resolution is only 1366 x 768 px, and I cant run S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in any high end graphics mode - meaning that all of the screens I get are useless for referential drawings.
Much like with the snorks, I found that theyre a much more detailed thing than you may ever think of them being once you start to study them.
Ive managed to get a couple of decent ones through google searches and the like, but id really like to see some that show off the details of the exosuits - all the working parts and whatnot.
If you can help, please email or comment on the blog!

Okay, so youve probably been wondering whether theres been any bloody progress...

Well, aside from several other projects, Psynexus and I have been working on something new and exclusive for our blog readers, that may also interest you lot.

You can see several teasers on my site at http://cyruscrashtest.co.uk and see what the gimp known only as Psynexus has been up to on his at http://psynexus.blogspot.com

as to THE ZONE and CROSSFIRE - I'm still hard at work putting together the first graphic edition of the former and putting th final pieces together for the first part of latter- though its been a while since ive posted anything new over at http://stalker-crossfire.blogspot.com - partially due to ther work and partically because im in desperate need of some decent screenshots. help if ya can would be highly appreciated. adios.

LITTLE UPDATE

currently im holding most progress on this project to ensure completion of the first GRAPHIC EDITION of Psynexus' THE ZONE - as seen elsewhere on the boards here.
this is partially because its a slightly quicker project, but also that much of the research can be reused for my own work - and having a two man team gather that together is far better on the whole.

to get up to the minute progress updates, come find us here and subscribe to updates through the manner of your choice
http://crashnexus.tk

the first edition should be ready by the end of june / early july - with another part to follow every one or two months.
 
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
