Tonight’s progress on the first year bald eagle illustration. Lots of work to do on the head and feet, as well as cleaning some edges and finessing some shadows/layer merging. Fresh eyes tomorrow will help with that!
- I couldn’t wait until the holidays, so talksprites are happening now!! I decided to redraw that Arnika from scratch (that sprite was so old), and it was such a good idea. Despite being smaller, these sprites are much more expressive, and there’s more space for body language. The only problem is Arthur, as the dude is McFreakin’ Tall. He’s supposed to be a head or so taller than Arnika, but that cuts half of his head off… so he’s drawn as if he’s standing a little further away.
Arnika and Lina are mostly done (just need to draw a bunch of expressions), Arthur’s up next. Boy, his expressions are gonna be fun (painful) to make.
Feels like I’m improving in pixel art by the hour <3
- As an extension of the nice talksprites, the overall look of the game might be getting an upgrade with custom transparent text boxes! Or maybe not. They’ll require some common-eventing, I’ll try it and see if it works/is worth the trouble. There will also be more colour variations for different areas.
- Otherwise, some small programming things were done - rest points, dialogue, etc. Music was received (thanks! :>). And… this brings me to the announcement:
I decided to make a shroom soup demo!
The final product will be quite a long game, and I’m not really sure when it will be done. Buuuut, I am dying to share at least a little bit of it with the world, get some feedback, have something sort-of-released. So, it’s gonna happen! Probably in the next month or 2, and unlike the last time I tried to set a release date, that’s actually not impossible.
I’ll work hard during my break to get it ready, so stay tuned 💖
