Laboratory Outside 1
There's multiple versions of this background, so I might take a while on this one.

Going to Busy for a Bit

busy
Hello guys.
I just got a job dealing with Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 6 for a bit.  Yep, this is a temporary job that might end earlier then or on November 28, 2014.  Thanks to my last job, I did pretty well with time management.  I hope that this Photoshop job will help me with my own projects at home.

For some reason, I can't listen to music while I work at this job.  A job that doesn't involve me talking to anyone, so I guess listening to the sounds of other people clicking on the computer is what I am going to have to do.  Anway, I do not have many background images left for me to work on for this visual novel.  I feel like I could finish this visual novel soon. 

I also need to think of a different name for my current visual novel: Trapped. I was alerted on Twitter that there was already a visual novel with the same name.

08/27/2014 Endless Blue

Underwater background.  Three more backgrounds to go?  

I'm tempted to draw something outside of Trapped, but that's how I got side tracked and forgot about this visual novel. 

Fun fact:  On the Dark Siren Games' website, I post my blog posts faster there then on Blogger.

08/20/2014 Dolphin Sprite

This cute little guy is only seeable on one of the endings for Trapped.  I just wanted to show him.
Now I'm off to practice drawing real anatomy.

08/13/2014 Half Way There

Open field
I now have four more scenery images to design.  Today, I also finished another sprite.  Digital artwork, while I am not there, is getting easier to do.  I am feeling really happy right now.  Listening to the advice from a few posts back, I decided to put an underwater effect after coloring in the scene.  Using underwater references really did help a lot.

I made a deadline for this visual novel, but I refuse to tell anyone what that deadline is.  Not only do I need to finish the game by then, but I need to make business cards as well.  Last time I was at an anime convention, I was asked for business cards a few times.  I already have an idea for the mascot character, so this will be fun.

Last blog post, I might have mentioned signing up for Conceptart.org.  I did sign up but I will end up posting my realistic work on Cgartnexus.com instead.  There are a ton of useful advice on Conceptart.org, so it is worth looking at the tutorials available.  

Lastly, the more I write for Ashes and Androids, my Science Fantasy boyXboy visual novel, the more I begin to understand where I want to go with the story.  I have not done the worldbuilding in a while but simply writing the story is helping me understand the world I set the story in.

Next Scenery

Open field and fish and dolphin sprite

This is the next scenery image that I am working on.  Very bare at the moment.
