Happy practice days

I'm sorry. I just can't leave my player sprite an ugly mess with no animation. But in order to do that I need to elevate my drawing skill to way beyond just "lmao I'm just an idiot with a drawing tablet".

Well, despite with that said, November was not as productive as I fantasized about. Family problems still haunted me and Covid19 is still yet to leave me. After I recovered from anosmia (no sense of smell) I developed parosmia (smell malfunction). Oh boy let me tell ya, I'd much rather not smell anything than constantly suffering from having everything smell terrible.

So I did a tracing practice. I took an art, turned it into black&white, drawn the lines tracing over it. Well you probably know what tracing means. And then I traced my first tracing all over again. This time with cleaner lines. And then after that I started shading it by not tracing but just looking at the source art and badly trying to recreate all the shadows. I'm not sure if you already know it but your hand just doesn't obey your eyes and/or brain at all until you train it a thousand times.

Me: Alright, my hand, let's do art "tracing". It's so easy. Just follow the lines that I see.
Hand: Trace my ass.

Thank you so much allowing me to live my best life. This was the best decision of my life. Art makes me happier than anything I've ever done. Art to me.... umm I think it's not the time for this kind of speech yet lol.

Yo lets gooo

So yesterday I finished drawing the portrait of my main character and I feel so proud. I cannot explain to you how grand this feeling is. I made her. I made a character that exists. It's not the same thing as just making a butterfly (through the anguish of vector art) or slapping a heart shape on a square. This is so big for me. 

Ok so, wow. It's been a month and a half since I haven't touched Unity lol. My programmer fingers are itching so I'm really excited to write a fuck ton of code. There came couple brilliant ideas to solve the problems I have been facing while I was away so I'm about to implement them now. And after all that I can hopefully make the best fucking video about making bullet hell in Unity.

Those three are in-game sprites. I tried to do animation of the dress flowing in the wind but boy I have absolutely no clue on shading so that part of the game is gonna be a little shitty. Much like all the other parts.

You see, the reality is that no one, not a single damn soul will see that on twitter. But it's fine. My philosophy is to just enjoy myself in my life, however short it may be.

All boss sprites are finished

I have to post something here before SubscribeStar get displeased with my inactivity. You don't understand (or you do) what I feel right now. I'm feeling genuine happiness and accomplishment. And I'll feel it tenfold when I finish the game!

What? "Where is the .psd/.kra files since you're a SubscriberStar creator"? 
lol you ain't gonna get nothing out of those absolute pile of garbage. Ask that again after a year.

small setback

I was just working on my game until on September 18th I had to travel a long distance. It was not the kind of distance that you would walk on feet nor am I a wealthy person to use taxi so I decided to go on a bus. Then I got cold. It may or may not have been covid. I didn't get it diagnosed by a doctor because here they charge ungodly for it. All the painful symptoms are now gone except that I cannot smell at all. Whether it's cold or covid or maybe something brand new, it focused on hurting my nose so hard that it annihilated all of my smell sensory nerves. Hopefully they'll regenerate as google so unhesitantly reassured.
I was working towards preparing a grand and epic entry to October but well it's got screwed...
Thank you so much for understanding. I will still make a 21st birthday speech on October 4th where I talk about some stuff.
