2012-design

Future master in training

Yay! I’ve updated finally! Thanks a lot for your patience and support.

Well, I made this outfit design in 2012 (wow!!) partially based in those from Birth by Sleep. Curiously, I was thinking in Sora training to become master when I designed it five years ago. And now, knowing that Sora is officially travelling to Olympus Coliseum for training (Thanks KH 2.8!), I decided it was time to recover it with a bit more mature Sora!  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I’m thinking on posting the original 2012 design on Instagram just to compare (✿◠‿◠)

When speaking to various characters in Katawa Shoujo, their placement and size are often changed to reflect their current role and relationship in the conversation- they are larger when they are speaking loudly or confiding in you, smaller when they are less engaged or on the fringes, etc. Doing this, rather than fading them out as many visual novels tend to do, keeps every character relevant to the conversation, and conveys more information in the limited format.

Watching Doctor Who last night, I thought Bill’s kitchen looked rather familiar… and then I realised it’s a set I designed in 2012 for the Welsh soap Pobol-y-Cwm!

And I only noticed because I saw some cabinets and wondered to myself “Who would put cabinets like… Oh my god, I would put cabinets like…!”

The masks that the player can unlock throughout Hotline Miami are vastly different in terms of of their usefulness for different kinds of players. While masks like George will let the new players see more of their given surroundings at any one time, Charlie or Zack, who give more melee weapons and extend your score multiplier respectively, may be more useful for more experienced players. But ultimately, the masks are meant to augment the player, with the acknowledgement that some are blatantly more useful than others. Thus, it’s up to the players to determine how they want their experience to go.

2012 April O’Neil

A little Pro-2012 April post.
I don’t always agree with the writers but I can appreciate that this April has grown probably more than any previous incarnation. She’s not just a maternal or sisterly figure. In fact…

When Ciro designed 2012 April, he basically made her a turtle.

Check her out. 

1. All of the turtles have their designated colors. April has always been assigned yellow. It represents happiness and sunlight (something the turtles saw very little prior to meeting her, I’m sure). April’s headband is a modified version of their masks. It seems like a little thing, but in Costume Design it’s a way of tying her in with the rest of the team. The same can be said of her wrist bands. It’s not the same padding you see on the turtles, but it’s a designer’s subtle way of saying “She belongs here. She’s a part of this team.”

2. The number 5 is pretty obvious. Ciro flat out says, he slapped a 5 on her shirt because, dammit, she’s the fifth turtle.

3. People often complain about April’s clothing in 2012. Admittedly, her style is a little odd, but there’s a reason for it. Her undershirt and leggings? Green. Not a coincidence. Those massive boots? April gets a lot of flack for wearing those boots, but here’s the thing:

Giant feet! Even the stripes on her socks could be compared to the lines in their knee pads.

These days, April gets to wear her ninja gear because she IS a ninja, but from the very beginning the creators wanted viewers to understand that April was in every way a part of the team. Even when Leo told her she wasn’t.

Anyway, what I’m saying is, I love this girl. She deserves so much.

(Is this coherent? I can’t tell. Momma needs some sleep.)

((Since I’m indecisive on what I wanted to do today, have some old Buggy art I did a few years ago :’D 

Truth be told, aside from Big Mom and her family getting me back into One Piece it was actually Buggy that got me into One Piece to begin with back in 2012. His quirky designs and awkwardness really got me into OP and I’m glad it did. He was my first favorite character from OP and will always be a fave of mine! <3 

I will resume back to replies after I post one more OP-related thing!))
