So i'm still alive, which is awesome. The only really extraordinary thing i've been doing is drawing in my sketchbook, even managing to produce some drawings of passable quality. But the big thing? I've managed to pull it out in class and draw something as well. One day i was just like "ok fuck you nerves i'm going to grab this sketchbook and draw something on it". It was approximately like reaching into a lions mouth to grab hold of its tongue, except the lion is a metaphor for my silly mental block about arting in front of others. But, i reached in and pulled out, and by the end of the class...
This thing was looking right at me, along with anyone else taking a peek (which, to my surprise, was a surprisingly tiny amount of people). While not the biggest thing in the artistic sense, it does represent a tremendous leap towards being at peace with myself, because the notion of showing my stuff to my family no longer seems nearly as scary as it did before. I don't even know why it would seem scary at all, i guess i'm just not used to being... Well, good at anything that isn't school or gaming, and i'm not even supremely good at any of those. I suppose some of it comes from the disparity between studying natural science (geology) and being an aspiring artist, the two being VERY separate topics, ALONG WITH being interested in computer stuff.
AND SPEAKING OF COMPUTER STUFF, i'm finally making progress on my game again, and if it keeps up at this rate, it'll be done this year! The current public version [link]
is 0.6, which means that it's approximately 60% done, but with some luck, the next version will be 0.8 or 0.9, which would mean it's VERY close to completion! Past the 1.0 mark, i still have some ideas that could be made, but whether or not we get to them depends on whether or not i start up a new game project, which i might well do. Said project will have much more stylized graphics, so that my spriting won't be the bottleneck for continued development. :U
and zat iz all for todays ramble
HAVE A PLEASANT CONTINUED EXISTENCE
