I'm not dead! Just busy, busy, busy

Where to begin. In essence the virus happened, Trump dumped 1.2k on us and I went to town on a major upgrade for my pc. Let me put it this way, the only original things are my power supply and SSD. Everything else got a massive upgrade into a true gaming pc that licks any and all games that I throw at it like a champ. This means that Unreal Engine purrs like a litter of kittens suckling on their momma. I am sooooooo loving it.
Speaking of UE4 (Unreal Engine 4) I am currently building an RPG game from this marvelous tutorial from my favorite teacher If you read the comments you'll find that Growlution the webcomic is based off my ideas for Growlution the game. I stopped developing it because I got frustrated with my piece of crap all in one. It was so slow that photoshop took a full 10 minutes to load, and don't get me started on saving a simple material file in UE4. To paraphrase one of my favorite Netfix characters “Uuuuugh, it was soooo annoying.” Anyhow, I dumped over $800 (250 was from a friend and my mom)and upgraded my old pc. It's so quick that photoshop loads in under a minute!
Sorry, I really really love this computer. The reason I'm posting this is because I am building the RPG game base before returning to Growlution in a stunning (hopefully) 3D style similar to how I draw it. Every model will be handmade by me either in Blender or Zbrush, from the characters to the plants, to the buildings. Some things might be free with credit like buildings and other things but most most of the models will be mine.
