I completely forgot to make a report for December last time, sorry about that ^^;;;
January was the month of experimenting and setting my priorities straight. Basically because I wanted to take a little break from work, I decided to take commissions and I experimented a lot on said commissions, which I think helped me improve a lot I usually have limited space to experiment within a project, since I need to keep consistency (though sometimes I do experiment… leading to different results x’D), so being able to work on commissions helped me let loose and I enjoyed it greatly (:
If you haven’t seen my commissions, they’re all in my deviantART gallery while some progress screenshots are on my facebook fanpage as usual (:
There’s a bit of a ramble about all this further down the page, but now let’s take a look at the projects!
Yousei is out. YAY!!
I’m so happy you have no idea I hope everybody can enjoy the product of our hard work, so please take a look at the demo if you can (and if you can buy the game, even better <3 ).
I’ll do an art ‘post-mortem’ of sorts later on, as usual
I’m slowly working on the Dies Irae characters. I wish they’d take less time to get done, but they do take me a while! The new Kickstarter campaign is waiting for me to finish more characters before launching, so I’ll do my best to get them done in a more timely fashion the next month.
Hope~ stuff has progressed slowly, but I’m now one sketch away from starting actual production of assets, which I’ll start next week if everything goes according to plan (: I have two sprites and a few CGs ready to be turned into working assets in the following weeks, which puts the game closer to being released! (though I honestly have no idea when the estimated release date is set or aimed to be).
I’ve also been slowly but steadily working on Spirited Heart 2, by Winter Wolves I was hired to do a bunch of chibis first, but then I was invited to be the lead artist, as the original artist left the project for personal reasons. I’m really thrilled about this, and let me tell you, it’s a lot of work! But I’ve had lots of fun making costumes for the main characters and I can’t wait to finish them and show you guys!
Blue Rose, in case you haven’t heard, is on preorder/beta. I worked really hard on that one too and, as I’ve mentioned before, I improved a lot just by working on it. I’m very proud of it and I’m slowly playing it myself too! I recently got a promotion piece done for it, but I haven’t got approval to post it around yet, so you’ll have to wait for that one. The progress screenshots are on my Fb page as usual if you want to take a peek.
And yes, I’ve been having fun making logos, haha x’D I’ve also made a few more for other games that you’ll be seeing when the time comes
As for February, I’ll be working hard on Hope~ and on Spirited Heart 2, and also fixing and finishing some Flight of Twilight things that need to get done (I scheduled a few hours for that again). Speaking of side projects, I also scheduled time for Every Sunrise, so I’ll be working on that on my ‘free’ time too, if things go well.
Next week, instead of going on vacations with my mom, I’ll be living at her place by myself looking after the pets x’D Which in one side is very nice (yay, pets <3) and on the other side not so much (boo, no boyfriend and being far away from everybody ;_;), and I sadly couldn’t afford taking the Artistic Calligraphy course, so I’ll see if I can take it later on instead, when I don’t have financial messes, which should be soon, since I got my Payoneer prepaid MasterCard and I should be able to withdraw my Paypal money now and use it to pay my living expenses instead of just having it for online purchases budget ;v;
And that’s pretty much it! Nothing too exciting, as usual, haha. Oh! By the way, the BL VN I did the characters for should be announced in the near future (I did the logo for it the other day! ), though the art production will be put on hold for a while, so keep an eye if you’re interested in it
And now for the life ramble…
