Podcasts Part One

By Alfonso Callejas   A podcast is kind of like a radio show, but on the internet. You can download or stream them on your phone and listen to them at your leisure. A few years ago, I started listening to Podcasts of radio-shows like RadioLab and This American Life. Since then, I have delved into programs that are exclusively podcasts. One of the great things about being an artist is that while your hands and eyes are occupied with work – your ears are free to do whatever they want! As […]

Plein Air

By Andrea Werntz   I have a trip to Europe coming soon and like any artist who goes to amazing locations I would love to take my sketchbook with me, and some watercolors or gouache, and sketch the town to bring back home my own interpretation of what I see. Now, it sounds really fun and romantic but it can be really hard to try to paint the city when you are as rusty painting landscapes from life as I am. So I have been watching videos and tutorials, trying to figure […]

By Drew Walton   Growing up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, I loved drawing and video games. I was one of the few children in my neighborhood lucky enough to have a Nintendo Entertainment System™ and often found myself totally engrossed in new characters and environments for hours on end. The inspiration continued long after the game was turned off as I found myself drawing the adventures I was having in games. This past Christmas, my uncle gifted me a comic I had drawn when I was 8 years old, inspired by one of my favorite video games at the time- MEGA […]

My Fifteenth Year in Games

By Graham Somers   As of 2017, I’ve been working in the games industry for 15 years. I started my first job – as a Community Manager – in 2002 at a company called Big Huge Games, located in a suburb of Baltimore on the east coast of the USA. I started work more or less fresh out of college, with a couple of hundred dollars in my bank […]

Math for Fun and (Digital) Profit

By William Lemons   For the last several weeks I have been extremely engaged playing the game Stardew Valley. It is a farming/simulation game with some light combat and dating sim game elements as well. It’s also pretty much the only thing I’ve been willing to talk to other humans about, so I am hoping that writing about it will get some of this off my chest and I can stop bugging the hell out of everyone else. I think I started playing this game a few days after Christmas. According to the stats in Steam, I have spent 260 […]

By Austin Chalk   When I’m in-between doing environment art stuff here at BonusXP, I share some of the attack and impact FX for our characters. This can be anything from trails on the end of a swinging sword, to a fire alchemy spell, like the one I’m going to walk you through in this week’s post. To begin this effect, I decided to make it in the order that each element appears in the sequence. Thus, let’s start with the summon rings. Since this post is quick and focused on the […]

Fresh Baked Bread

By Jacob Naasz   One of my favorite smells, besides pine forests and old books, is fresh baked bread. For the longest time though, I could only get my fresh bread fix by going to various restaurants with free bread options which was usually less than satisfying. So I’ve taken it upon myself to solve this problem and have been baking my own bread at home the past few months. I find it incredibly satisfying to make and while it takes a bit of planning ahead of time, it’s relatively easy to do. Plus my wife loves it so bonus […]
