MARDEK character faces!

◊ Posted by A β Pseudolonewolf
Categories: Art MARDEK
I've been drawing lately... Specifically, working on my face drawing skills, which is hard work!

Some of you who've been here a long, long while might remember seeing these, which I drew not long after MARDEK 3 was released: ∞ LINK ∞

That was a long time ago now (almost exactly two years ago, it seems), and I have been improving a lot since then, I think. Here are some new versions, then:


They're only the human playable characters so far, since I've been working on drawing human faces, rather than wolves or reptoids. Hopefully you can tell who's who!
They most certainly look very different from their in-game portraits... which are poorly drawn, I realise now that I know a lot more about how faces are structured.

Just to be clear, they are, from left to right, top to bottom:
Mardek, Saul, King of Goznor, Sslen'ck,
Polly, Miasmurine, Saul, Bearded Man,
Drackal Crescent, and Gloria.

I can see all kinds of flaws with them myself, since I am rather self-deprecatey about my own work, so, uh, you needn't take this opportunity to tell me exactly how I've done things wrong or anything, because I probably already know... Knowing things and not making errors at all are two entirely different things though! I just need a lot more *experience* before I can draw things better. With each face I draw, I learn a great deal.

So anyway, yes, hopefully these are interesting or something! They were certainly interesting and educational to draw!
(Also, they're all naked, apparently, just like in the game.)

I'd like to say they made me more enthusiastic about making MARDEK 4 - and they did! - but I don't want to get anyones' hopes up about that, since it would be impractical to make it any time 'soon', as much as I'd *like* to...

Missing MARDEK Saves

A few people have already explained the solution to this in comments and things, but I'm writing this so then I can link people to it instead of explaining the same thing over and over again in PMs.

If you had MARDEK saved games on the old Fig Hunter site, you may notice that they are missing from this version. They're not gone as such; it's just that Flash saves are linked to the url, meaning that those saves are linked to, but you're now playing on
When I move this version of the site to the www address - whenever that may be - they'll come back, but for now, it's possible to find and move the saves so you can play them again.

Irritatingly, the location of these files differs based on your operating system... I use Windows Vista, and this is where they are for me; they may be the same on Windows 7 as well:

C:Users[username]AppDataRoamingMacromediaFlash Player#SharedObjects[random string]

Replace [username] with your username on your computer, of course. [random string] could be anything; something like UWJUCWE, maybe. You'll know it when you see it.

From that folder, you'll need to find the '' folder, and inside are your saves. You'll need to make a new '' folder if there isn't one already, then just copy and paste them from one folder to the other.

There's not really anything I can do to make this easier, since how Flash saves is not within my control (if it was, I'd let you choose the location for the saves).

Anyway, hopefully this is of some help to at least someone.
