Firebreath's Exploration

This was the first full project that I coded from scratch in JavaScript! It's a short choose your own adventure game where you follow Firebreath, a self-proclaimed dragon, through various scenarios.

Play the Game at this link:

I created this as a present for my brother's birthday. The style was inspired by one of his favorite games, Famicom Detective Club (which the music also comes from).

This was a short project made for fun, so enjoy!

Here are some screenshots from the game:

Return of Gesture Drawing

It feels like it's been forever since I've sat down and done gesture drawings from a website. I used to do it a lot before I was busy with work, but lately, it's been hard to find time to do any. But I finally found a bit of time to do a few, so of course, I'm very rusty!

Detective Pubby

For this month's Improvement Movement prompt, I played around with colors and lighting. I decided to take a scene from Detective Ragger for this one. I wanted this scene to take place at night, but I had fun coming up with different light sources and light colors.

These are all 4 of the variations together!

This is the original with flat colors.

And the process it took to get the flats laid out.

First I did the window lighting.

And here's the window lighting process.

Then I tried out moonlighting.

And this is the process for getting to the moonlighting.

And finally, the police car lighting.

And the final process for the police car lighting.

Trails of Cold Steel Sketches

Some recent fanart sketches I've done related to Trails of Cold Steel!

I've been playing a lot of Trails of Cold Steel recently, so I decided to doodle the characters. It's been a while since I've played through a really long RPG that wasn't Final Fantasy or Persona.

I always like when we get to see video game characters in outfits that aren't their usual uniforms, so here's a doodle of Claire from Trails of Cold Steel in her fancy undercover clothes from the bar scene.

Rush Sketches

I've been working on planning an Eventure having to do with time travel, so I've been sketching Rush more often.

Here's a sketch of what Rush might look like when he gets older!

Rush never seems to get things done whenever his friends are around, but he's usually pretty productive in his studies when he's by himself.

Alternate Timelines

I've been working on planning the Truth of Yaguzi Eventure, so that means making art about it!

This is what Zandra might look like in an alternate timeline.

Ilsa's ready for a pool party in the last few days of summer here.

Eventure Sketching

When I can’t think of what to draw, I’ve been sketching these mini-Eventure sketches for my Twine story where I’m converting my Eventures into Twine format!

RPG Maker Games

I've been working on RPG Maker games during my weekends for fun recently. These have been fun weekend projects overall!

I figured out the functionality on the programming side and have been working on the interface/art for one that is supposed to be a psychiatrist simulator.

I've been making progress on my custom Turn-Based battle system for one of my games! The art is still super rough, but I've been working on getting the gameplay mechanics functioning in RPG Maker.

The Revenge of Gert

I decided to make this short video on a Sunday afternoon. One of my first RPG Maker 2003 games was about a bad guy named Gert, so I randomly decided to bring that name back for this short "movie trailer" that I came up with. The quotes are from various video game screenshots I took.

The Revenge of Gert from Michelle Rakar.

And here's a gif of the beginning:

Gen 8 Doodles

With lots of Pokemon news and the game coming out later this year, I did some doodles related to gen 8!

I figured I would doodle some Gen 8 starter evolution predictions before it's too late. I'm guessing they're gonna be class-themed to go along with the Sword/Shield fantasy theme.

There was a lot of cool stuff in the Pokemon announcement trailer, and I'm pretty excited that they're bringing back new region-exclusive forms. Galarian Linoone looks pretty cool.

More NADs: Poproy and Handew

Some more NAD drawings that I've had time to do on weekends in the summer!

Poproy is a very well-known hero in Somi who always fends off against attackers. He is very powerful, but is defeated by Ducklin, in order to save his beloved son Piko. He is very close with his wife Siubo and his son Piko, so the family would often train together and grow stronger as a family. Poproy trained under Wes, a well-known legend in PS World, which explains where his immense strength came from. Though, because of Poproy's strength, his village is often in danger of challengers wanting to face him. He's very humble and doesn't like to show off his strength, but when his family and fellow villagers are in danger, he doesn't hesitate to show his true power.

Handew is a polite and studious young boy who always asks questions for clarification. He's not very good with technology and usually runs into technical difficulties whenever using computers. Handew is often a bystander and follows along with the group. He's one of Waga's wings, so he's constantly asking him questions, though he wouldn't dare talk back or talk out of turn when around him. Handew is a very obedient kid and it often weighs down on his self-confidence level due to never standing up for himself.
