i'm working on a gameboy-esque game

I'm using Multimedia Fusion 2 Developer and Graphics Gale. 

This is from only a few hours work, so there's not much to show, but I feel I'm getting better at pseudo-programming. There are so huge bugs, so be forewarned. :)

I hope to work on it more in my spare time, but if you want to see more progress on learning to work by yourself and control scope, as well as the project progress, go here: tastes gamey

i know i know

5 minute white board drawing? for the art challenge? you fool!
i also have no patience to use any proper capitalization for the post either.
well ANYWAY ya'll, it's past midnight and i can't find my damn wacom pen, so this is what you get from me.
im trying to work on a game by myself, and here's some whiteboard sketches since those are always fun.
i did a competitive analysis of Cat Trap, which is an amazing GameBoy tile-based puzzler. even just reaching level 20 would be a good amount of work for me to do, so i stopped there. (Also, the game starts to pick up in difficulty so I put it down before I became addicted). My code section is pretty sparse, since that's definitely not my forte.
competitive analysis is a great way to make yourself confident of the scope you are actually trying to achieve.
anyway, should be fun! i need to create a mechanic that would comfortably mirror the scope of Cat Trap, if not be slightly smaller.

For this one, I zoomed out a lot for the medium refinement stage. A detailed refinement stage might be fun. 


not sure what i was going for here...but it was fun nonetheless

zombie mountain

Ended up looking like dead flesh. Good stuff. Did not ref this but it probably would have been a good idea to.

With this one, I learned that first creating a bold shape (in this example, it was the face shape) and then working from that can be really fun.

This was something like 30-40 minutes, so light and sketchy and bit unrefined.

There was a really pretty sunset this evening, and I used the colors I saw as a base for this paint sketch. Fun stuff!

a bit more work...

july 6th 

I used this awesome tutorial to figure out some stuff ( Want to keep working on it today! I figured out that the brush tool makes an EXCELLENT size reference. Basically, you measure the pixel size in the original photograph using a round brush radius, and use that brush to draw the stroke in your photograph, or simply take note of its size. Also, using the grid with this technique is extremely helpful.

snoodle doodle

july 5th entry

Painting with the mouse...and lasso. The comp is off, and this ws a 5 minute sketcha doodle. It was fun to play with these two tools instead of a tablet and brush.
