  • Been in something of a creative slump lately thanks to a lot of stress at work and in my personal life. Thinking I'll use the rest of the week to take a break from working on the project and recharge by playing a new game. Disco Elysium's been intriguing me for a while!
    I was planning on doing custom tilesets for my game (still working on character creator art!) but hoo boy... just went thru Kauzz's Modern+ stuff and. I am. TEMPTED.
    Got locked out of the house yesterday... Locksmith had to literally drill thru the lock bc they couldn't pick it. Whole process took 4 hours and far too much money. And they have to come back next week bc they don't have the right cylinder, cause it's an old interlocking lock. I'm livid lol

    @Arctica Depends on the plumber. Really immoral ones will even go so far as to create problems so you need to pay them to fix it; putting inflated condoms into a drain to cause a blockage, for example. Not all are like this, however. If you find a good, trustworthy guildsman, you should try to always use them.

    I've definitely had my fair share with immoral plumbers before! I'm not sure if the locksmith falls in that category tho -- we started w the front door, and they couldn't get the last two pins to go in. Got thru the first back door, but couldn't get thru the door that led into my unit (deadbolt interlocking so they couldn't do the like sideswipe thing, and picking it wasn't working either).

    They DID only charge me for one lockout despite trying three doors, at least. But I still gotta pay for a totally new lock and a rekey for it ugh.
    Happy Friday, y'all! I just got home from work and am sitting down with a nice cider, and I'm ready to chill and enjoy myself. Not sure if I'm gonna dive into any of my game-related projects or not tonight.... we'll see how I feel after unwinding for a bit I guess!
    Looking at my work schedule like man..... wish I could just take a week (or more...) off of work for a little art vacation. Working on my character generator parts on my lunch break is great, but it's so slow going!
    My girlfriend broke up with me last night, after 14 months she's realized she only feels friendship for me. Trying to distract myself w game dev stuff and it's not working. So brokenhearted.

    Really sorry. You'll find someone else in due time, I know it.

    Thank you so much, everyone -- it really helps to hear. <3 I'm taking tonight to grieve and I'm hoping that tomorrow I can really throw myself into creative stuff to distract myself. You're all wonderful, I really really appreciate you taking the time to comment.

    I know exactly how you feel. Had a girlfriend for 10 months that told me she never loved me. Game dev is certainly an awesome way to get over it, speaking with personal experience. Keep chuggin' on!
    My second NPC, another gorgon -- Glorensia Sthyxis, twin sister to the last NPC I posted here, Hopernica. The twins go by Hope & Glory. 8) Her fade is snake scales, which I'm excited to detail in a face portrait!

    I'm taking a break from Game Work to actually play a game (NEO: The World Ends With You) and I'm terrified that I'm gonna lose the drive for my project, since prior to picking up NEO, I'd been doing at least a little bit of work on the project each day ahhh. My brain is very much an "all or nothing" kind of brain, sigh.
    Wish I was better at art, specifically that I was faster at it, bc this one NPC took Several Days to complete! It's gonna take So Extremely Long to do all of the art for my game, never mind writing it... Anyways, here's my gorgon, Hopernica Sthyxis!

    @Featherbrain Oh my god, I feel that!! Eventually I'm going to want to do the sideview battle sprites for everyone as well, but I will be putting that off for as long as possible because I am incredibly intimidated by the concept ahaha. And thank you! <3

    omg i love this style so much! i love that there's enough space in the sprite to make some fairly intricate details, like the snakes and the belt buckles and her fishnet top it's all so super cute..

    can't wait to see it in context!

    @spillycup Ahhhh thank you so much! Having enough space to show some fun details like that was defs important to me — I cant wait to share more! :D
    Having one of those "wish I could just quit my job. Wish I could just get paid to dabble in game dev. Wish UBI was a thing." kind of days. Weeks. Months. Years. And I like my job for the most part! I'm just... tired. Wish I had more freedom and more hours a day to do things I want to do ugh.
    Made my first ever character sprite! Pixel art is new to me though, and I'm not totally happy with it... can anyone give me some feedback on what I can improve?

    Looks good! Only thing I'd say is that the side to side animations look better (and a little more "aggressive") than the up and down ones. The arm bends aren't the same level of change.

    I wish I could give you feedback but I've tried creating a custom character sprite many times and never done that well! Great first attempt!

    Thank you both so much!!! <3 I'll definitely see about making the arm bends more uniform for the up and down sprites!

Hallo.png
A new day for creating :)
2021 has been the runner-up for the worst year of my life. 2015 may take that title, but '21 is pushing it. Excuses really don't justify how much of a jerk I've been this year to a lot of people.

I'm sorry. I don't intend to be a jerk forever, but I'd rather back up my intent with actions, not words.
"Another hundred habaneros... a teaspoon of tumeric... and a heaping helping of nitroglycerin!" The kitten in a chef's hat laughed maniacally as the pot he was stirring promptly exploded.
