Icy log: date thirteenth of April, two thousand and fourteen,
First of all, G'day to you all! New watchers and old alike, thanks for tuning into my dA and I hope that you keep finding whatever it is that drew you here in the first place.
I'm going to see if I can maybe update this a bit more regularly and maybe shift some of the general content I put on tumblr to here, so hopefully I might just hear from you guys a bit more??
In terms of art, I'm currently actively participating in the BFOI
as a Ranger. At last Mission 2 has been released and as you can see above, we're to use some highly.. challenging colour palettes. Then there's also the monthly Quests which should prove interesting, especially with some of the new elements that've been added. I've been thinking about making a Googledoc where rangers can collab about which tasks are being taken so that we avoid further 'Bad News'. Oh and I've a single-page comic in the works for the Team Flare event they had, so hopefully I can have that up before Easter Sunday.
Otherwise whilst I can't disclose any details yet, things over at Space Race OCT
are progressing at a very nice rate and though I can't provide a relaunch date yet, it promises to be a rather stellar
run! Be sure to stay tuned for more info!
For the record, once I'm done with BFOI, I'd like to start working on a Nuzlocke Comic titled "Schwarze Zwei
." I've already got the basic plot worked out
(and I may or may not have transcribed almost the entire game in my notes oops)
and a scripted prolog page, though nothing set in stone just yet. For now it's a Blind run of Black 2, featuring a decendant of Rosetta's who despite working in Ever Grande isn't the greatest Pokemon trainer. Also, there's ghosts.
Speaking of which, I'd like to draw a more things about End Run
and other things featuring Rosetta. (read: Etrian Odyssey fanart
.) So depending on my mood that may be a thing, it may not. As for sprites and other pixel animations, they're currently on hiatus until 1 of the following 4 events occur:
- Gimp releases an update that loads in under 2 minutes, rather than 8.
- Fire Alpaca releases an update that allows it to save animated .gif images.
- I decide to wait the 8 min it takes for gimp to load and do some animating anyway.
- I find a 3rd program that loads quickly and can do what animating tasks I require of it.
I changed my icon recently as part of an April 1st event, however I was never as thrilled with my sprite of Charade as I was with either of Rosetta's so I went with the Pachirisu one I have now. It's supposed to be what Charade uses as a chat icon, so I figure why not use it for dA~?
In terms of my studies, they're progressing well (or I'd like to think they are). We're getting a week off over Easter, so that'll be nice (- if only so I can catch up on some assigments and then work on art.) I recently had a few problems connecting to Uni's wireless, but they're resolved now, however I still can't use dAmn at Uni so leaving comments/notes here, asks/fanmails on tumblr, or just saying 'hi' on Skype are some alternatives.
There's also a demake of Etrian Odyssey I'm slowly working on. It's purpose is to model some AI concepts for one of my units this semester, so that's also a thing. If you'd like more info on that, check this link
I have at last completed a long-term goal of mine: Win a game of Minesweeper on Expert difficulty! It truly is a game of logic and deductive reasoning, with a little bit of chance thrown in too.
So that's about it! I wish you all a happy and safe Easter peroid (just don't eat too much chocolate!),
