Recent Life Drawings

In the past couple of weeks, I've had a chance to go to a few restaurants, in celebration of my mom's 60th birthday. And while there, I've been able to squeeze in a few life drawings!

Gair & Guido

These are two Eventures that were never entirely reworked, so figuring out quotes from them was a challenge.

 In Beddy Bye World, The Nays are taken captive after attending a dance. Gair refuses to sacrifice any of his friends, so he takes the most of the attacks on his own.

Guido approaches Elftress during their party in PS World. After the party is in action, Guido disrupts the entire party and kills many innocent bystanders.

Recent Eventure Doodles

These have been Eventures I have basically no documentation from, so thinking up quotes was kinda in the moment.
After a corruption of the game server, The Nays find themselves separated and stranded in a new World: Tribal World. Thing finds something to eat in the wilderness of this new World.

Sid hijacks a plane that The Nays are on and takes some of them captive.

Ragger of the End

So I recently started watching Seraph of the End because I heard one of the songs in it and got obsessed with it. And the anime is actually really good! So I was watching the ending song and I got really inspired to draw after seeing 54 seconds into it

So I drew Scott in The Gek's flooded World. I made Pigger be in the reflection and placed The Gek in the background. This was gonna be a tiny little sketch but I ended up fleshing it out a lot more than expected! I also have been really liking playing around with blur effects recently in my stuff.

 And it all started with this little doodle.

And then I cleaned up the lines.

I actually used the "Always use Pressure for Opacity" option for coloring. I just used varying pressures to change the color instead of using tons of different colors. I used one for the highlight and one for the shadows, but the rest was one color. I don't usually do shading this way, so it was interesting to blend in a different style.

I added in the front color for the water, so that the table looked like it was actually underwater. 

I added more color to the background and made the water lines a lighter color. I also colored over Pigger so that it would look like a reflection. 

I blurred out a bunch of elements to give it more depth. I also made the foreground a bit larger so it would frame the image better. 

I added some water markings onto the couch to make it look like it went together better. I also added The Gek to the background in the sky.

And then I decided to move The Gek because he looked out of place and too big in that spot.

He STILL looked out of place, so I dimmed his color and added some fog over him. I also smudged the background a bit so the shapes weren't as sharp.

And that's the whole process!

Piko & Kominushu

These were two recent Eventure Doodles that came out better! Probably because I was working harder recently and these were fun to just take some time to relax and draw for myself.

After Gair and Piko face off in the World K Tournament they fight against Ducklin. At this point, Piko and Gair are waking up so they are fading away from Beddy Bye World.

The Nays find themselves stuck in an MMO, and Kominushu (Trekkon's sister) comes to rescue them. Katume tries to break off all connections with the outside world to trap them in there, so Kominushu has to do something drastic to save them.

Nay Sketchbookin'

Sometimes when I'm in the car, I draw some Nays.

Some stuff from the Aiml World Eventure, since I was reading that recently.

From a discussion of how in another timeline where Ralphie was an S Mark instead of an M Mark, Ralphie was the main Nay instead of Gair. So he had to say "Hawwwwwww"

Before and after the Game Jam, I did a few Eventure Doodles! Gair and Zandra are siblings and I just happened to draw both of them in a row.

During one of The Nays' adventures in Beddy Bye World, Zandra reunites with her friend Amber. This is her describing the experience to her friends later.

The Party Place is under attack, so The Nays are forced to retreat. Gair and friends don't know the directions out there since they have never been outside of the Party Place, so they get lost.

Global Game Jam!

After 30 to 40 hours of hard work and little to no sleep, I finished my second Global Game Jam! This time me and Steve created a game in RPG Maker MV, but we used entirely our own art. No pre-made stuff this time! We spent a lot of time on the art, and were also able to make a few puzzles. This game's definitely a lot more polished than last year's. And it was a lot of fun to make!

Here's the final menu screen that I created for our game! It was entirely made from pictures, and no pre-made menu.

This was the final text box that I created.

Here was the title screen that I made. 

Steve painted this background for our jungle maze! I created the character sprite and menu button. 

 Another background by Steve. I created the UI elements. I was also the one who programmed this part to function in RPG Maker.

And this is another shot of the same map as above. I created the sprites of both Mr Dude and Mar.

And this is another shot of the same map as above. I created the sprites of both Mr Dude and Marr. I also made the UI and Marr's portrait drawing.

I drew a bunch of mushrooms for our cave puzzle! 

And then this was our splash screen. I created the text based on the font we used in our game, Bubblegum Sans. And that was a picture of The Gek that I drew awhile back that I decided to incorporate!

Game Jam Progress!

I'm participating in the Global Game Jam again this year with Steve Rakar! This year's project has been a bit harder for me so far, but we're getting a lot done. I'll post our final game tomorrow or the next day, but this is the progress! Check out my Twitter for more frequent live updates!

This is a sample of what the GUI and character portraits will look like. I did this test in Photoshop, so the text and BG is not final.

And then this was a test that I did for how our menu might look. We'll probably end up using a bunch of pictures instead of an actual menu plug-in.

And here's what I spent the majority of last night on! Mr Dude is our main character, so I made sprites of him walking. I'm a bit out of practice on animation, so this was a lot harder and more time consuming than I was hoping for. But now we have a walking character!

Murou and RoaR

Some more Eventure Doodles!

The Nays start to go to PS World a lot more after they are sent away from Tag World. During the PS World times, Zandra plays an online RPG and meets her new friend Murou.

Cipo is put in charge of The Nays after Hawkin and Pidgebeetle are sent off to work in farther away areas. Punchy meets his new friend RoaR at one of the camps that The Nays go to.

Meet The Artist!

I saw a bunch of people doing these and I missed it last time around, so I wanted to do one for myself! I got a little carried away and drew my entire workspace. Although I didn't draw EVERYTHING. There are a lot more cords than there is pictured, but I just didn't wanna draw all of those.

No More Tag World

The Nays are beginning to not line Tag World anymore... ONWARD TO PS WORLD!

Chozu leads The Nays in having an out of control party in Tag World. This results in throwing around a giant bird stuffed animal, drenched in water.

The Nays start to not really enjoy Tag World as much as they used to. But in the meantime, Ralphie and Gojo bond and become friends while they're eating chocolate covered pretzels and playing a video game together.
