Thanks for viewing my profile! I've worked for a bunch of production companies including Aardman Animations and the BBC and I post about my experiences on NG. I also created the vaguely popular Steve series which I update once every million years. Whoops!

A post for all WiiU owners!

Hello everyone! I haven't posted on NG in about a bagillion years, so let me just say Happy New Year and I hope you all have a fantastic 2013! Moving on...

I'm still working at the BBC (this is taking up the vast majority of my time) and it's still great fun, lots of work but we're making some really exciting stuff. The show I'm working on at the moment is called Hidden Kingdoms, it's a natural history series which should air sometime in early 2014 - I'll make a post as soon as I can show you anything!

In other news, holy balls has anyone with a WiiU been on the Miiverse? I am absolutely in love with it! Some of the art I have seen on there is insanely good, particularly in the NintendoLand and ZombiU (my personal favourite) channels. I strongly recommend searching for users such as Kiara and Machine3K because their stuff is awesome, unfortunately I can't remember the names of everyone I'm following on there but definitely have a look.

I think one of the things I'm finding so impressive about Miiverse art is how accurate some of it is despite the (intentional) limitations of the software. With no colours, line tool or erase previous button available it is frankly astounding how some artists have generated pixel-perfect drawings and even managed completely accurate renditions of 8-bit games such as Tetris and Mario Bros. I've tried my hand at a few 8-bit style drawings on there and hoo boy, it takes hours!

If you're an early adopter of the system and want to check out my stuff, search for TomWright (you can find a search tool in the Miiverse if you click User Menu > Search Users). If you're an avid fan of doodling on the WiiU pad I'd love to see your stuff - I'm usually hanging about in the European ZombiU channel!
