Catching Stars WIP

27th December, 2012
Started this a little while ago (when I created this) There are several things that are subject to change, but it's at least playable for now. I'm hoping to have prizes when you get x amount of points, but I still have to code that yet.
Use 'a' to move left and 'd' to move right. Click the picture below to open the game.

Made using the GameQuery JS game engine X3 Sorry, no sound, because it's kinda laggy - it's BYO music <w<

Oh, I thought I should also mention, that I've changed the giftbox drop rate a little. They now have the chance of appearing at any time of the year, but they won't be as common as in December.

Winter's Warmth Process

26th December, 2012
Thought I'd post this, seeing as I took some screenshots I didn't have a lot of time to do this, so it's not very clean in some areas.

Mini Explanation
  • Thumb sketch - I wanted steps leading to a door, with a girl who had just found a stray kitten and wrapped him in her scarf.
  • Lines - I don't actually line a lot of my stuff now, I just paint over top. But I drew over this one. I then threw a beige colour in the background and painted in purple over it to get the overall shadows.
  • Greyscale - changed it to greyscale, made the wall darker, so the girl would stand out better and would contrast with the snow.
  • Colour 1 - Started adding colour back in using the colour, overlay, multiply and soft light layer modes.
  • Colour 2 - More colours using layer modes.
  • Colour 3 - Yet more colours - some were simply blocked in without colour modes (like the stockings) using my tablet pressure sensitivity for opacity.
  • Painting - The next two steps are just painting. Eyedropping or picking colours and rendering as I go.
  • Effect - Adjusted the colours with colour balance and added some overlay colours. Also added the little white vines.
  • Snow - Very lazy snow I adjusted a default brush and set it to scatter. Used a few different sizes and opacities.
  • Oops - Fixed the face a bit Still not that happy with it, but I just don't have time @_@
  • Final - Copied the image and pasted into a new file, resized it and added my watermark

Ethereal Artbook Preview

20th December, 2012
Finished up the picture I was working on for the Ethereal Artbook project on Deviantart. You can see the preview below~

Spent time on and off for the better part of this week. It's the first full background I've drawn in a while and has two characters in it. I loooove drawing greenery

Yesterday I added a page to the pixel art menu, that shows all of the plushies that have been made It updates automatically, whenever someone makes a new one.

I'm going to have to figure out where to put that page permanently (yes, it may move), because I want to finish a mini game I've been working on, which you'll be able to win plushies from.

Fiery Aristocrat WIP

11th December, 2012
Took some screenshots - I like taking these even just for my use Sometimes I try different things, so it's nice to have shots of the progress. I originally didn't like the sketch, or the first couple of steps But I decided to force myself to finish it. Click below for a larger version.

Some people start with a greyscale painting and then colour it, but I usually like working in colour early, because I like colour? >>

Wishing for Rain Progress

7th December, 2012
I posted this on my DeviantArt a while ago, but forgot to post it here These are the steps for my Wishing for Rain piece.

I also fixed a bug in the plushie maker - it wasn't switching base types properly (fluffy vs clipped), but it should be now

Here's a few more plushies I need to make the colour of the feet changeable >>
