  • Today is good! Did some exercise, didn't get too tired and now I'm making some pixel bookcases.

    Sounds like a super productive day :D

    More productive than I've been in a long time if you don't count days where I'm manic. It feels good!
    I got a fireplace in the mail today. :D

    I know. :D It's a small electric one, just right for my studio apartment especially since I don't have access to the thermostat.

    Haha I was thinking an entire brick one, or one of those metal ones.


    GRats on getting an electric one, stay warm! We use radiators here.
    I think I've hit the point in the project when I just want to be finished. Unfortunately I figure I have at least 2 full months of work left. Advice?

    Well, my statement still applies, game or not. Trust me on that...T_T

    Thanks everyone, I know what the problem is now. I just have to figure out how to get over crippling self doubt.

    It's...it's not easy. I know that very well. ._.
    If I get anything done today it'll be a miracle. :p

    I feel that, by posting a reply to this update, that I am accomplishing something. Hurrah. That's my productivity for the day. :)
    Trying to draw wallpaper is somewhat hindered by hating wallpaper.

    Don't think of it as drawing wallpaper, but rather painting your wall with abstract paint...if that makes any sense. lol

    Debating buying XP during the sale so I can make sure the resources I'm making work in it.

    Well, was just saying. :p


    I'll eventually get VX, but I can wait.

    VX is useless if you already have Ace. Xp however is the best for mapping.

    VX is necessary, even if you have Ace, if you want to use resources that are based on the VX RTP. You are buying it not to actually use it, but to have the rights to use its RTP in your game, as well as any other resources based on that RTP (like Celianna's tileset).
    I wish all pixel art was as fun and easy as making a floor tile.

    Not good, but easy to do though...

    You really should, cause what you do right is pretty damn awesome. What I've seen of your work has been consistently great! Acknowledge your faults so you can improve, but praise your achievements more. That's how I try to be anyway :]

    I love your work and agree with the others that what you do is really professional in quality. It is really hard as an artist though to see your work as it truly is sometimes as we seem to always look for the imperfections rather than what we got right.
    Something's wrong with me. I don't want to show off what I've been doing lately.

    I also get those times where I wish I could share something about a story... then I hold it in because I want it to be a big surprise in the end =] totally normal, but so hard to deal with xD
    I know it's just a few pixels of black and grey, but they make such a big difference on eye strain. I do like the theme otherwise though.
    Two completely sleepless nights this week and this one is already shaping up to be another. I'm going crazy, I don't know how my brother stays sane. His insomnia is worse.

    I was that way the other night. Couldn't sleep, had to run errands and attend a resume writing workshop at my local Workforce Center. Needless to say...I was falling asleep during the first 15 minutes, but managed to keep myself awake fully for the rest of it.


    At least I'm, more or less, back on track. Good luck!
    Sharm
    Sharm
    Oh, I have the time, I'm just sitting here in bed going insane instead. Having to sit through some boring workshop when you're sleep deprived sounds awful though. Glad you're on schedule again. :)
    I'm considering making a world tileset that looks like a hand drawn map but I'm not sure if it's worth it. http://tinyurl.com/mkx4mc8

    I'm actually working on the same thing based of the map I'm working on :)

    there was another kinda along the same lines for XP... but I lost the link, think it's in grandmadeb's stuff


    I can't figure out a reasonable way to do labels for the maps though :/
    Sharm
    Sharm
    Yeah, I saw that in the WIP thread. It's beautiful. How are you going to tile something that complex though?
    cosmickitty
    cosmickitty
    I was hoping I could pull it apart and tile it... but it's not looking like it, I'm either going to do multiple pieces that can be puzzled together or try to make it autotile... with a lot of overlay pieces, it'll most likely be a parallax map though, I'm not sure I can do it otherwise... I'm working on it later today, I'll see what I can figure out and post it in WIP maybe someone will have some ideas :D
    I like living alone except on days when I'm sick and there's no one to beg to do stuff for me.

    On the plus side, no one living in your home can make you sick if they're sick :D

    I still catch everything that goes around so I haven't really had that benefit. :(

    Brain: I wanna make a car. Me: The tileset is low technology, I don't need a car. Brain: K, so we make a car now? Me: No, we're animating this water. Brain: *makes a car* Me: *headdesk*

    Mine does that too, every time I try to write. For some reason I can force myself to get things done with art easier.
    "I have nothing to show, act like a jerk and don't answer questions but good luck making it in the gaming world if you don't work for someone as awesome as me!" How is this mindset so common?

    This is why my wife and I are doing our best to raise our kids like this. They have to understand they won't always win so as long as they do their best we are proud of them either way.

    Overall, I think the issue is people can't accept their limitations. They think, I can't do art, scripting or music, so that means I MUST be an amazing writer, even though writing is a craft like any other artform that few in the community have mastered.

    There's been certain forums that I won't name that get this sort of thing everyday, there's actually people on them who go out their way to police them too, it's that common. The worst is when the thread starters think they can make an mmo despite no previous experience in games development. To top it off they claim to be CEOs of their "companies". The sad thing is, it actually seems to work from time to time.
    Spent the day making ocean and sand tiles instead of finishing the tileset I've been working on for a month. I love how productive I am when I'm manic but it's hardly ever useful.
    I've been extremely productive today but in a complete reversal of my usual behavior I have no desire to show off my hard work.

    Productive days are good days- whether you share the progress or not. :D

    Agreed with Luna. No need to show your work, just work. As long as it gets done and you feel accomplished.
    I set out to prove that tree autotiles didn't have to be ugly. I think all I'll end up proving is that when you make it pretty enough people won't care as much about the lousy square corners.

    I'll never understand why this was considered an improvement over XP's autotiles.
    Celianna
    Celianna
    Eh, if you want something round and with transparency, go for using regular tiles instead.

    To make thick forest I just put a bunch of trees close together I don't use that square group of trees.
    I just found out that my favorite pixel art tutorial is no longer online. If I'd known it was going to be taken offline I would have saved it!

    That happened to a website I know of that had some fantastic free electric and acoustic guitar sampler libraries used for music and it had some really nice effects plugins as well. At least it's on web archive and I was able to download and save 99% of what I needed. You should check web archive to see if it's still there and save what you need!

    I tried wayback machine, half the pictures were missing. Oh well!
