Nights Perfect Album Announced

This is great! Finally the original Nights soundtrack is getting the release it always deserved, this time in the form of three discs! Cocoebiz is taking pre-orders on the set, which contains two discs for the Original Nights soundtrack, with the third disc devoted to covering music from the limited Christmas Nights game. With the original Nights soundtrack being only one disc when it was released long ago, I think this set will be the Nights soundtrack the fans (myself included) have been wanting. Also, the new Nights for the Wii will has a soundtrack too! Check out some links below:

    Some Random Sketches...

    Some random sketches I did today to get warmed up into drawing after the busy Holidays, when I didn't have time to draw. Because of that, December was bittersweet. The good thing is, my pencil burns with drawing energy once again!
    It's not often that I would show quick sketches such as these, but maybe someone will enjoy seeing them?


    Megaman, here I was going for his slightly older/taller look, like in Megaman 8. I don't draw him in this style very often, it's just not how I like to do it.

    This is how I love to draw Megaman! Short but just as strong!

    I just got my hands on two new Megaman X arrange CDs and they are fantastic! This is pretty hardcore game music metal here, and the fast heavy style on these discs suits the war torn world of X and Zero perfectly. Created by the band "Kissing the Mirror" out of Japan, both discs consist of favorite tracks from the Megaman X series. On each CD you will find seven tracks, which makes them a little short, but the content is amazing. Both albums are titled "Every Time I Bang", so in a sense they are one album only just split into two: One for X and one for Zero. The release date for both discs is listed as 10-8-07, so it's cool to be able get in on a new work such as this early on.

    As a fan of Megaman X almost just as much as the original Megaman series, these albums are a breath of fresh air. Quite frankly, there hasn't been a lot of BGM arrangement work done for the Megaman X series. With Capcom recently releasing a rock and techno CD for Megaman though, that could certainly change. In the meantime, I don't mind relying on the various doujin circles and musicians one bit to get my game arrange fix. That goes especially for these discs, they really are of excellent quality. The styles range from short bits of orchestration to great bursts of speedy guitar and keyboard filled excitement! One other important thing to note is that although some themes on these discs are expanded upon, the band really stays true to the original music. It's inspiring to me to see Megaman X music finally getting the heavy metal treatment it deserves. Well done guys!

    It is a shame that doujin CDs like this are so hard to come by. From my experience, some of them are impossible to get unless you know someone in Japan or if you can find them at an auction site somewhere. If you are unaware of ebay seller champ_des_pins, I recommend cheking out his auctions. At any given time he always has an excellent selection of doujin CDs, and he is reliable, and in Japan. That's where I got these discs, and it's very possible he could have some more available soon. Here is a link to his ebay store page:

  • I have scanned the fronts and backs of both albums as well:



    Here is the Kissing the Mirror site, and there you can listen to samples from these great works!

  • Just scroll down and click on "Every Time I Bang".

    See you next time!

    It was a busy end of the year for me, but now I'm ready for the new year with lots of cool things in the works. I hope you all have a great new year! I'm working on the final part of my Sailor Moon drawing video, and in the coming days I'll have some CD reviews up and more drawing videos are planned as well. The countdown to the Distant Worlds Final Fantasy concert is ON! I can't wait for it! As for whatever else I've been up to, check below for a quick look at Cap'n Crunch Adventures.


    Here is a little sneak peak at my upcoming Cap'n Crunch comic, which will be a part of this blog in the coming weeks. This image will serve as the "cover" for the debut of the series. More to come very soon!
