So since what I'm working on at work isn't really a real game I've started working on my own.  I'm going for something between a tower defense and flying game.

I've put together the basics of my movement classes pretty quick, but still need to do some polishing

the blue ship is controlled by the arrow keys
the red ship moves toward the mouse
the green ships move toward the mouse, but decelerate if the mouse is behind them.

the blue turrets point directly at the mouse
the red turrets point at the mouse but can only turn so fast

next up is adding bullets, targeting, and damage
 
 

So I received my wacom tablet in the mail yesterday and I've been playing with it ever since. It is definitely a lot easier to use than just a mouse especially when I'm doing texture painting in blender.  I've also been using it instead of my mouse for every day use,  it fails in a few places but with our un-ergonomic desks at the house it has been better on my wrist.

In other news I've just taken pictures of my traditional artwork from the past year.  I still need to do some tweaking in photoshop but they should be up some time this weekend. I should put my 3d stuff up right now but I  don't think I'm motivated enough right now.
