Art stuff

I wanted to comment a bit even though I did comment recently. I've been working a heck of a lot on the game but I've also been working on some art. Also I am gonna whine a bit because I can, I guess.

So first the whining. I decided to finally spend some of the donation money you all have been giving me and be a bit extravagant for once. I'm bad at spending money so when I do spend it I tend to do so in a big way and this was no exception! Of course I'm still me. So that meant I was still going to spend it on something practical. So I went to the dentist. Yes - for the first time in a long time I could go. And I needed to because my teeth were killing me.

Turns out I need a root canal! This is not very fun news. Worse is I can't do it until next month. So I'm stuck with a bad tooth for this month. I can't just get it pulled because it's a canine tooth and I'll be damned if I lose one of those! They're my favorite teeth. So right now the sensation is... poor, to say the least. Between the pinched nerve and this I'm surprised I'm still sane.

So I've been spending time doing two things that help keep my mind off of things: The game, and art.

Alas my mapper is not present so the new maps will be mine. That's mostly what I've been doing. So you'll have to deal with some sucky maps for the next section. I'll try to get them remade later. I've got a whole city to make but the maps are the easy part. Figuring out how to program what I have in mind will be trickier. I intend to make Bilbao play out a bit like Locke's sequence in South Figaro from FFVI.

The other thing I've been doing is art. You saw the pic I did last week. Well I've been unusually productive thanks to the whole pain thing and needing a distraction. So here's a bit of what I've done lately. It's all Palutena because - I dunno, she's fun to draw and I have all these reference photos.

(There's a permanent post for the last one here:

A bit more on topic with the whole game thing I've got some lineart back for Rubati's intro scene. This was drawn by the talented member of the art team; the artist Mindwipe! This guy rocks. Go support him, okay?


  1. If you stomach can stand it, ordinary aspirin has always worked best for me for tooth-nerve pain (I have had two teeth that required root canals). Hopefully, your next year will have more good luck than this one had bad.

  2. Great thing to spend our money on I think! All the best luck with it!

  4. I sent you an email. Also, I was not able to keep up to date for the last few months, so it was quite cool to see your progress. Your art has improved quite a lot since I saw it all those months ago. I know the 8 dollars won't help much, but I hope that stuff goes well for you. Looking forward to seeing how much has changed in the game and I guess reading about how you're doing.
