In no particular, chronological order - but roughly categorized, I guess. Spoiler: nebulous stuff Spoiler: Low-effort Half of these aren't even funny when they don't have the captions they had in their original posts. Oh well, I can still provide some commentary. After looking over one, "introspective" WW3RP thread, I noticed one particular outlier. Ohey, you can even see my post in that thread, with the img link broken. Nice. No idea when I made this besides it being pre-Helix. Nabbed the head on the right from some WW3RP thread, I can't remember which. Screenshot thread, mayhaps? Who knows. Something I made courtesy of Hoovie's one, questionably /ss/ (no not the schutzstaffel) drawing. Made in response to someone's post about UIL sending e-mail to Xen, I think. Mostly made just because I was dicking around with models from the 1187 mod. Through all its brokenness, I still had a blast simply because it was a based in the late Portal Storms era, right before the Seven Hour War. (Spoilers for the ending) Fun fact, if you're quick, you can actually shoot down the Combine gunship that flies towards you, before the screen fades to black and credits roll. Just a visual glitch that occasionally happened in the City 8 map that I turned into a meme. Something to do with this portion of the map being loaded properly only when the doors are closed beforehand. A temptation, seeing one of these strung up on a wall. I wonder if any minges actually went for it. This one was made after a rebel event to capture a Union freighter. Inside there was an Alien Controller that, well, controlled the rest of the ship crew. Technically an event character played by yours truly, but I was there just to stand still while admin fellas did /event stuff describing what the ayylien did. At the end, it escaped and flew off somewhere (physgunned, fun fact). Another 'quick meme', not much to comment about. A visual glitch from the olden ages of City 24 (I swear to god if any of you start to get nostalgic I'll whoop you) turned into a meme. No clue when I made this, took someone else's screenshot and added text for a visual gag I guess. This one's an "exclusive" meme, because I made it ages ago, but never took the effort to post it. Everything else here has been posted in some thread before, but not this one. My brains connect the dots between the most barely-related images way too often. I distinctly remember having a bad time finding a good power-up pic of Goku, too. Ah, this is an old one. Made during the brief spurt of Garfield memes, if I recall correctly. When tensions were already building up between the conscripts of different Slavbard camps... before the Borealis event had even begun. Sgt. Williams was the conscript in charge of Newlands, btw. Spent a lot of time trying to make this look as 1:1 to the original as possible. I think the caption for this was smth like "when the OTA start aiming their guns at you", but I'm not 100% sure. A simple, "quick" meme. Made in the style of the Vault Boy "excuse me what the fuck" meme. And this one in the style of "godzilla with shades saying that wasn't very cash money of you" meme. Do I even need to explain this, or am I just trying too hard to fill up some context for each picture? Made from a personal screenie from the day Canaan got inaugurated. Spoiler: Stuff I'm actually proud of These either took a lot of effort to make, or I just liked making them a lot. The OG meme, probably one of my first - and the best. Technically low-effort, but the joke is so fucking stupid that it loops back around to being hilarious. Fun fact: I was lowkey planning on making a lot more of these, under the premise of "Gordon makes his debut in City 17, but it's during the Red Letter Day event of neb's last days on Clockwork framework". However, since that whole Dyson Sphere thing happened, any ideas - and motivation, frankly - turned into mist. Another meme made during the Red Letter Day event. I actually have a bit of footage of the "fetus deletus" phenomenon, I should upload it to YouTube someday. Ah, Bao Guanting. My Senator with a relatively-brief tenure, mostly spent in City 8. Kinda regretting I didn't complete some of the things I had in mind for her. Made during the waking days of Pyongyang conflict, this was a silly one to make. Who doesn't love a bit of 'Namposting? The speech mentioned in the first panel was this one. Probably the biggest effect I've had lorewise. And who could forget Sergeant Connor Williams. He was a weird character, frankly; I had a bunch of unpublished headcanon/backstory for him (a lot of it teetering on "uhh, this kinda sounds transhuman-y, shouldn't this get auths?") and he was taken away from us before any of it would become more apparent. Oh well, at least his death got a lot of fanfare and recognition. Still surprised how many people cared, honestly. Spoiler: ""Actual"" artistic effort Some of these are inherently memey, but still have genuine, creative effort behind them. That being said, let's get the worst one out of the way. Pretty simple, and honestly a bland thing I made to apply for the connies in Borealis event. I even forgot to wipe off the signature font from beneath the one I tried to write 'by hand', like the dumbfuck I am. Don't worry, it only gets better from here... I hope. The amount of time I spent cross-referencing actual VOGUE covers to make this is ridiculous. You can see that the synth itself is looking a little unusually pale there. That's a result of me trying to do the "turn color value into transparency value" greenscreen trick in GIMP and failing miserably - and not realizing I could just set the background gray in-game. I was even using the gm_construct's colorable room, for crying out loud. As inspired by an actual boxing poster, I made this. Since this seems like a common format for olde-styled boxing posters, I might make more. Good thing I still have original .xcf file, meaning I have all the layers with their effects and textboxes modifiable. Some kind of radical transhumanist poster that I made fairly recently. Spoiler: Other stuff Hah, I'll have to gather a lot more effort to work on this one as well. Feel like I forgot something? Just ask, and I'll see if I have it saved somewhere on my computer - and if I can be bothered to upload it as well.
