Hey! I’m currently on vacation and have been working on a few characters, which is a lot easier now that I’m taking a break from doing freelance work. Any way, here they are:

So, I first had the idea of making a Jumping Monkey mascot, which is the stylized looking monkey guy in the sliding pose. He was a relatively easy drawing actually, but, regardless, I really like how it turned out. The second character I made, is the “realistic” cartoon monkey. Not as fun, but the result wasn’t too bad in my opinion either. However, I will admit he may have been a little rushed. The third is a character of me in Interstellar Marines (A sci-fi fps game) armor. I have recently joined a clan (Pro Marine Core), and will be playing in the IM tournament soon, so I thought it would be a cool piece to have since I’m going to be a part of the community and such. This drawing took three days of on and off work to complete, and I really like the result. Also, look below for a Jumping Monkey character desktop background I put together. Including my Minecraft character.

I wanted to have a different header other than the Minecraft ones I had before. So I made this and applied it as the header. I will need to make more headers in the future, because I decided not to use the Minecraft one at all any more.
I have decided upon a new logo for myself and my site. Logo number 2! After much contemplation (about two minutes of staring off into space), I decided to use the second logo, with the split profile of me and the Jumping Monkey character. I chose this because it is very similar to my first logo, but still using my favorite mascot that I first created when starting the site.
And yes, for those of you whose noticed, it does resemble the Rhett and Link logo
I did not do this purposely, in fact, at first I meant to have the front of our faces split, but I later realized that not only would this be twice as difficult as doing the sides, but it wold stray from the original Jumping Monkey logo. I did, however, use the collar at the bottom of their necks as with Rhett and Link.
As for the reason I changed the logo, well, there are several.
The old logo said “Jumo”, which I try not to use anymore since I changed my site address.
The old on was a little stale.
I had been wanting a cooler “monkey” logo for a while
And oddly, my main reason was that I had just gotten a 30 day trial for Adobe Illustrator and wanted to try it out. The other new logo I made was the first thing I have ever made with Illustrator, I had never used a vector based program before, so I had to watch a tutorial. Next thing I knew I was tracing my first logo with the pen tool and BANG! Insta-logo!

Hey guys. Need some advice. I have recently created two different new logos for me and my site. I need help deciding whether to keep the one I have, or go with one of the new ones. Please vote for one in the comments.
Had A bit of an ear ache this morning and had to stay up… playing Quakecraft. Haven’t played Quakecraft in a while but decided to give it a go again… played for four hours straight. I only recorded like three or four games, but I was able to make this montage thing in a couple hours. Anyway, thanks to all the awesome players who looked cool while I shot them and played even though I was utterly dominating. Enjoy!
I have started working on the next MC prop update. Which is going to include: better bending arms and legs and 1.8 skin support. here is a picture of the arms and legs bending. I you haven’t already checked out the rig, see it here
