|04/30/2016 Update for the Grrr monster for my sister's story. She said she wanted something creepy, so I'm going for creepy but in a way that still looks like it could have been human. I also wanted to try some different things in the details.|

Google recently launched a service that allows users to create their own custom cases for the Nexus 6, Nexus 5x and Nexus 6p. Google Live Cases I gave it a shot using one of my earlier designs from the ArtFlow Nexus 7/Nexus 9 days. The link allows you to select the image you want from your device. Arrange the positioning and zoom on a virtual phone. Add filters and select colors and then preview the final design in a 3D simulated version of what your final will look like on the case. My final design arrived last night and it's quality through and through. My image reproduced really well. I tried to position the image so the camera lens and fingerprint scanner fell in places that worked. The scanner is over a magic endowed defensive gem in the character's cape and the camera lens is over a attack gem in his headgear. Each design comes with a custom live wallpaper too.

Borderlands 2 - Testing out Game DVR and the Steam controller. Edits and Output in Power Director 14 Ultra on a Surface Book
I'm currently working on a project for an office that needs a series of demonstration videos produced. I needed a good screen recorder in order to produce segments of the videos. I tried three, GameDVR by Microsoft, Screen Recorder by Cyberlink that comes packaged with Power Director 14 Ultra and Open Broadcast Software/Studio. I used Borderlands 2 and Steam/Steam Controller as a test pig to see if I could get favorable results on my SurfaceBook. The logic being, if I can get gameplay videos captured with good quality then the videos for the project would be no problem because they will be no where near as resource intensive as gameplay videos. I found comfort in this logic because screen recording with Android is not only easy as hell to setup and do, even with audio, high frame rates and in HD. It's also free. Well...this isn't Android, it's Windows and that sums it all up in a nutshell.
