As usual, this is a couple of months late, but then again it's also done well after any projects started in December have concluded. I've decided to move these to journals as I'd rather not waste the deviation space nor have to crop / change everything for the template. Plus this means I can ramble as I go along. |D
I think I only have the one option here, but it's a very nice option all the same. Granted the edits to it were done in February, though I'm still proud of how it came out in the end.
The animation was the hardest part, though I'm happy I was able to 'avenge' my previous attempt at drawing something from the character's perspective.
I've got to say I'm not overly fond of my deviations from this month. This one I did like more though and I'm quite pleased with how Torkoal came out. I like to imagine all the Torkoal Charade has befriended are the same one actually. If nothing else I did quite enjoy writing the drabble that went with the image.
Even with all the belated errors I've noticed, I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. My only regret is how late I finished and published it, so that it ended up branching from the 'official' version of events, rather than continuing. I'd like to hope that when I start SZ, the final product is comparable or superior to this.
I knew I had to do something
when the Hoenn Remakes were announced. Ahaha... maybe it's because I don't do much with her online as I used to, but I always have fun when I get to draw Rosetta. Particularly like the left image, though it was nice to finally get the design on the right finally down.
Weird how by limiting aspects of one's creative process, the results have that much more potential. I'm quite glad I saw and jumped aboard the half-tone train when I noticed it. That and the addition of black and white to all pallets was lifesaving.
After certain events I found myself wanting for a new RP group. Star's heavy promotion (both direct and indirect) brought her group to my attention and at last I had the chance to find out the answer to 'What if Artemis was actually part-Zoroark?'
I couldn't stand by when a Pachirsu was responsible for the ultimate victory in the VGC2014 championship, now could I? Anyway, the posing in this worked fantastically, as did my experimentation with screen-tones.
The names for these quests are always fun to come up with, my aim is to replicate the layout used in Shadows of Almia; that also extends to the corny titles!
I finally got around to animating something with the 'paper puppet' style, probably because I set out to do that at the beginning of the month, rather than get an idea and try to push something out during the last week. Uheheh...
Neither Star nor myself actually set a name for this, one of us just called their file 'Thingy' and since we never actually gave it a different one it stuck. Haha.
And there we have it. Someday I'll actually explain what's going on with Rosetta properly, until then I guess she'll always have that mysterious air around her or something. In the meantime, I guess you can look forward to the next leg of the race!
And that's about it! I think I owe the fact I've at least one thing published each month to my involvement with the BFOI Rangers. So a special shout out to Gleaming-Hope
for being so patient in running the affairs of most of that portion of the group.
Here's to a fantastic 2015~
