Wip - Gym Pool Area

Think I have all of the first level done. The upper level should be a lot easier. No CFE to deal with, just slapping exercise equipment around. It really needs some wall pictures and signs, but the lot is already cc heavy and I need to do the upstairs. Oh and my mouse decided to quit working. Ordered a new one with a gaming mouse pad. Yeah for Amazon Prime Shipping. 

Guys I love this baby mouse

Welp. Guess who got another writing idea for something that refuses to go unwritten.

-thissss guyyyyyy-

It’s a little small drabble thing with Eri and Amajiki and I might write it out quickly before I finish that Shinsou thing from last night.

Good morning!

I realized that most of my favourite artists *who do digitalart* use these bigass, badass awesome drawing tablets :D
Unfortunetly, some of us can’t afford those kind of stuff :(
What’s even more sad is that some people who realy have a big talent for art and if they wan’t to do or try digitalart they can’t afford themselves even some cheap tablet :( That sucks -_- But some people don’t need to use drawing tablet, they make an awesome drawings just using a MOUSE!! That’s insane and I take my imaginary hat to them :D SO The point is that it doesn’t matter if you have the most expencive and most professional drawing tablet there is or if you have the “not so good tablet* or if you can’t afford buying it, if you have inspiration and you love making art, then nothing can stop you!! :)
Btw if you are wondering I’m using Wacom bamboo pad for ALL my digital drawings- It’s one of the cheapest drawing tablets Wacom had :D and they said that eith this tabled you could only do some rough doodles :P And it doesn’t matter if it’s small, not some pro or intuos or sentique (or how is it called xD) or other types of better drawing tablets, and it doesn’t have much options, I love it :) It’s mah little baby ^^ xD  

anonymous asked:

Sorry to bother you with anon, but I have a question: do you have any advice about making your own chipsets/charsets/facesets using only a mouse? And what program would you recommend? I'm planning to make a two games in RPG2k3 and RPG VX Ace Lite and I'm kinda new to pixel art, and my tablet broke.

yeah: don’t worry about your table breaking because you don’t need to use a tablet in the first place, unless you’re drawing something big.  Tablets work best when they move across the canvas, not when they quickly dot it.   Your mouse is king in pixel art. And a mouse is better in pixel art than a track pad, so you got a leg up on me too.  :p

First, let me set you up with some basic links:


VX Ace

And now, some tips:

  • Drawing out a sketch of how you want your map to look on Graph paper so you know what you need to create for it.  It helps because if you start out just goofing around, you might create too little stuff to put into your chipset.
  • Whenever I get partway through a map, I like to make mock screenshots to figure out if this is how I want my map to look, like so:

It helps me figure out if the tiles I made go together or not, or whether or not my tileset needs a more varied color pallet to match my sprites, or if the grass is too bright, etc. 

  • I like to make things in Black & White first so I can get a better grasp on value.  Colors that have the same value as each other blend into each other, hiding any detail you might of had with them.
  • Zoom out from time to time.  You want to make sure your sprite looks just as good at normal resolution as it does up close.
  • The order for character sprites is walking/facing North, then East,  then South, then West.  So you know, Never Eat Soggy Waffles/Never Ever Smoke Weed or what have you.
  • Uhhh I had a mapping ask I answered earlier this year that had a few tips
  • You get a character to bounce up and down when they walk by moving them one pixel up or down, like so:

nice & neat

  • For smaller character sprites, I made myself a grid with little markers (feet go on the light blue - i gotta move the beekeeper down) so everyone walks on the same plane (and no one’s a pixel off).  

And If your face sets are looking left or right, just have them all face the same way.

Here are some of my favorite tutorials:

Ok, hope this helps. c:


Well I use photoshop elements because I’ve had it installed in my computer for the past 7 years and I’m too lazy to find another program that works on mac :v (make sure to take anti-alias off when you use the fill bucket ok kids).

Most artist recommend getting a program that has layering capabilities (very useful when animating) and something that doesn’t have too many features to it.  The most recommended tend to be, Aseprite, GrafX2, GraphicsGale, & GraphicsGale, and you can find more here (along with links to the ones I just mentioned!).

These are probably the must-have school supplies that you will need for college. I tried my best to illustrate them using paint and my mouse so I hope this will help you to choose school supplies wisely. First things first, there are two types of purchaser that you need to consider–the Cheap and the Frugal.

  • The Cheap

Many of us think that if you’re buying shoddy goods then you’re a cheap person though you are not really a poor. They are the smart people who are spending less to save money. For example: I will buy a new notebook. I picked 3 different brands but they are just the same style, now I will look to the price. Cheap people try to get the lowest price on everything therefore I will choose the inexpensive but with a good quality one.

  • The Frugal

The frugal people considered both cheap and want to save money. They are harder to pick out because they appear “normal”. They go out, they spend money, they leave tips. Those who are frugal are resourceful with their spending, maximizing their money, so that they can fund for the future. For example: I need a bookmark but I don’t want to spend my money. As a solution, I will recycle my old paper crafts or I will just print a printable bookmarks that’s available online.

The auditorium was filled with a tense silence. Jihoon let out a long sigh. The dry rehearsal had finished moments ago but no one made a move to get off stage and no one said a word. After a month with working with Lee Jihoon, they knew the drill. If anyone moved, they’ll be the first one to get barked at. You swallowed, waiting for his response. The script had been rewritten and the songs had been perfectly placed together. Now, all that mattered was this one, perfect rehearsal and they didn’t have much time left. How did Jihoon feel about it?

A large smile split upon his face and his claps echoed throughout. There were loud sighs of reliefs, surprised laughs, and angry yelling at making them anxious. You grinned as Jihoon stood up.

Yesterday, I got 50 followers. I know that may not seem like a lot, but this is my first tumblr blog ever. And, having 50 followers means that there are 50 people who are willing to see what you have posted and reblogged.

To celebrate that and give back to the studyblr community, I’ve made a sheet that has some of the commands that you can do on a TI - nspire CAS calculator. On the sheet are the commands that were covered in my Algebra II Honors class. 

If you don’t know what kind of calculator I’m talking about, click here! These calculators have a screen and a mouse pad thingy. They allow you to solve algebraic equations and so much more. They’re almost like a computer actually. In my school, these calculators are used in the honors math program, and also in some science classes.

To view it, click here.

Note: Most of these will work on calculator (1: Add calculator) unless stated. The >> symbol indicates the next step. If something is written as:  “a” + “b”, that means that you should press button a and b at the same time.

Please message or ask me if you have trouble understanding what I wrote or need some help with doing something on the n-spire. I know that they can be a little tricky to work with at times!

How ‘The Sims’ Turned Me into a Virtual Sociopath

I first got into The Sims in 2000, after playing the SimCity games, by the same developer. It was a natural continuation from that. I was never really that astute at “joystick games,” and I was rubbish at first-person shooters—my motor neuron skills proved incompatible with a control pad. Just clicking a mouse to make a decision was much easier. I had consoles when I was younger, but I was absolutely rubbish at most of the games—which was a positive thing for my social life, but something of a detriment when it comes to doing pieces like this. I’ve never, ever completed a full computer game, but I’ve played lots.

But The Sims isn’t really a game you needed to complete. There’s no real way you can fail at it—and the more you play it, the better you get. With The Sims, it’s just like life: What are you judging it upon? On who’s terms are you judging whether or not you’re doing well on The Sims? It’s like Championship Manager in that respect, another game that I was into at around the same time, when I was about 13. I remember my sister putting it the best way, with regard to Championship Manager: “I don’t get it. You’ve just been sitting there, staring at those stupid spread sheets, for four hours.” And she’s not wrong.


Not that I’m an expert or anything, but I’ve upgraded to the New 3DS XL. This is a rare occasion where Australia receives something before some other regions.

So if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask! :)

Some very early thoughts:


  • C-stick is very sensitive, and very much like those old laptop mouse nubs.
  • The Slide Pad (analogue stick) feels sort of ‘higher’, like it floats a bit more that the old one. You can actually see the nub shape has been changed a bit.
  • Start Button placement is much more convenient for games like Smash Bros.
  • Start/Select are very clicky buttons.
  • D-Pad feels clickier too, but maybe my old one was just worn.
  • Super-stable head-tracking 3D does actually work.
  • New shorter, fatter stylus is better, and it actually stays in the console.
  • Volume control actually clicks into 'off’ like the 3D control, so you don’t need to worry about bumping it.
  • Fears about the exposed Power Button seem unfounded; its fine.
  • Touch Screen seems a tad more sensitive.


  • Loading software, including the home menu mid-game is far quicker.
  • But once launched, older games (i.e. New Leaf) don’t take advantage of the new hardware and load no quicker.


  • It is a little bigger but feels pretty much the same in-hand.
  • Hinges and L/R Buttons feel more solid.
  • Outside cameras are now more flush with the lid, and therefore look smaller.
  • Headphone jack is centered, no longer getting in the way of your hands.
  • Stylus is a black that matches none of the color of the rest of the console…
  • “Black” (barely charcoal, actually more a grey) colour has a diagonal texture running through it, almost carbon-fiber-esque.
  • highly recommend getting your hands on a demo model before you choose colours, as it is very hard to tell from images what the consoles look like.
  • Shiny plastic is pretty but does attract fingerprints.
  • SD Card is now inside the consoles rear plastic panel; behind screws. This is the only real downside for picture-happy crossers like me.

Screen and Sound

  • Anecdotally, the speakers sound a little bassier.
  • Screen seems a little yellower in tinge, but also a tad more vibrant.
  • Anecdotally, games running in 3D seem a little less jaggy.


  • System transfer is fairly painless, the prompts do a lot of explaining.
  • But it is not a walk-away-and-leave or let-it-run-overnight process: There are a lot of prompts!
  • You do need to be aware of the SD Card size; they have to be the same.
  • Having no charger means that you will need to keep an eye on both the new and old console batteries during the process. Its not ideal, but just a deal-with-it situation.
The poisonous frog and The baffled author

On a late summer day
I felt on the top of my head
from somewhere above the dreaming clouds
and heard in the bruised matter of my angelic brain:
a musical splash that spread like a hurricane storm
in a myriad of daffodils marching down the melancholy hill.
I listened with my ears wide open
and stared with my eyes in wonder
at the whole somber symphony and stated out loud
“I will never have enough of the blueness of this moment”.
Even couldn’t move an inch of my winged sandals
from the pavement.
I was waiting a helping gesture from above
when a small poisonous frog
came to google at my foolishness.
the frog started to laugh,
cascading tears down the cheeks
his small hands clutching at his stomach.
I watched with medusa eyes
the poisonous frog poking fun at me
but still kept my countenance bold and erect.
I had to protect my disturbed bones, my broken wings
and my dignity intact in which way I could.
If some smaller than you kids or animals
are laughing at you, mind me,
this’s not an admiration sign.
It means you’re making a fool of yourself
without any trace of shame and
I’m an expert in shaming and foolishness, trust me.
Sure, I love to play the guardian angel during the day
looking for the well being of battered kids
or other unprotected endangered species
but in the evening
I still want to be treated cool
like a glamorous damsel in distress.
After the frog finished with laughing
and drooling up and down the symphony street
I went on my way to decode a french bank account
with my apartment guest ( a petite mouse )
which is living since seven years in my basement.
Sometimes the mouse is throwing excessive parties
with a lousy band of avante-garde friends, garage noises
and messed up jungle and drum&base beats
that can live you forever deaf
if you don’t snuggle some clean cotton pads in your ears.
However, this weird poem is about me
and the poisonous frog which left the melancholy hill
and the official building without even a hastened goodbye.
This poem is not about my best friend, the petite mouse and me. That one will be another poem, I hope soon enough.
Until then I bid all of you peace, true love and harmony
and I take off my gavroche hat in front of this baffled author.
Oh well, I guess all we need is love and a beauty bath,
my sardonic muse and me, both being sick and tired and
terribly influenced by the earliest Woody Allen’s comedies
a little too much.

Playing FFXIV with a gamepad

I’ve been playing ARR for over a year on PS3 and then on PC with a PS3 controller, and I’ve noticed there are a lot of things that the game doesn’t really show you how to do that make the whole experience so much easier and more efficient. So I wanted to put together a guide for other people who play with a controller with some tips that might be useful. I really hope it helps!

As a note: I play with a PS3 controller and I figure most people will too due to the game’s release on PS3/4, but you can also use an Xbox one. I have no idea how they are configured unfortunately but I figure the button placement is pretty much the same, though forgive me if any of this is confusing because of that.

Hopefully this guide will also be useful to people who are new to the game too, though it does expect you to know the basics already.
