Shitpost, etc.

That is seriously the best title I could think up.

Spent about 40 minutes just now struggling to write the next part of Caves, since I probably won’t have time for it tomorrow night. Got halfway through but ugh, it’s getting late, so I’ll have to continue that tomorrow. If I can’t get it done in time I’ll just have to make time. Yeah, sounds like a plan.

Today I finally finished the intro/config screen art for Trash Sweeper, my shitty Minesweeper clone that currently doesn’t do anything when you hit a bomb, other than stop the game. Why Trash Sweeper? I started with just Minesweeper, but then someone suggested it I change things up a bit so it’d fit with the theme of the May Boot Camp, mundane jobs made interesting. So there, you are now a janitor with mysophobia. (The art is mostly traced over from something I found on the internet, but I can get away with that, right? I won’t be making money or anything.) Does it look decent enough?

I’m also seriously going to buy a drawing tablet now. You know, one of those Wacom Bamboos. Found a couple of second-hand ones, which is good enough for me for now. Mailed one guy who had set his price already, he just sent me a reply with his bank number and all. Also mailed another one, for a newer version of the Bamboo Pen & Touch. I’ll be waiting for a reply from him for a bit (had to make an offer, he didn’t have a set price), hope I can nab that one for the same price I’d pay for the other. Would be neat, but no biggy otherwise. If I like it I’ll upgrade soon enough anyway.

So… yeah. Aside from that I don’t really have much to post about. Progress on all other things has been slow (haven’t been drawing much, didn’t really study maths lately, and Blender is pretty inactive as well), so no news there. Hope I can get back to quality posts soon.

But until then, got to roll with it.

    He looks a lot like Scuffy from Futurama. And best of luck with the tablet hunting, I’ve heard mixed things about Wacoms.

    Of course you haven’t been drawing much. You don’t have your tablet yet. Silly Fang. Normally it’s kinda bad to trace or borrow art, but only really if you’re making money. At the very least I do recommend sourcing as many people as you can.
