Devious Journal EntryMan, I miss making comics and stories... or do I just miss making stuff with depth in general?
Is 60 enough for this book or should I keep pushing toward 100?
What is the best way for me to color? Should I stay with simple cel shading which is fast and seems to get the best feedback (but I feel is stagnating) or should I keep trying to push myself toward painting even though I have yet to feel confident about it (and hate how long it takes)?
Should I continue developing my game in soon-to-be outdated software or start over in another program? Should I even be developing a game at all while simultaneously trying to develop my artistic skills?
These are the questions of the days of my life...
Jet Dancer Game UpdateI just realized how long it's been since I uploaded a journal here. Well, the Jet Dancer game has gone through quite a few changes since the last time I posted it. The gameplay is largely the same, but there are more enemies and hazards, a boss fight and some other tweaks both major and minor. (Skip to 3:25 if you just want to see the boss fight: Jet Dancer takes on Striking Sphere!)
Let me know what you think!
Progress on the Jet Dancer gameI posted this on my Facebook pages (personal and art business) already, and I thought I'd share this here as well.
I've been working hard on my Jet Dancer game. I had to deconstruct a lot of it and put it back together in order to make it less messy. I wanted to talk about the gameplay that I've designed since I finally have Jet to a point where she doesn't feel sloppy and unpolished. I got rid of several superfluous attacks that were causing glitches and not benefiting the game much.
The vertical gauge that glows is Jet's power gauge. It fills up rapidly and certain attacks and moves drain it. Jet can only dash or fire her kick cannon (not shown) when the gauge is full, but most moves such as dashing, backflip and getting injured drain it.
Jet can now dash in the air, at a downward angle. It extends the length of her jump distance significantly when used properly. If you jump as soon as you dash, the energy is maintained and she can dash again out of the air. It's useful for getting a
Dualmask's RPBs on Patreon!https://www.patreon.com/Dualmask So I'm pulling the trigger on this. I'll be posting future black female warrior illustrations on my Patreon page first, and sharing layered .PSD files and, in the future, process videos as well as giving Patrons the opportunity to provide input on future designs. Free and discounted commissions will be available to Patrons as well.
I hope you'll consider supporting me and my work!
Suicide Squad So my wife and I celebrated 14 years of marriage yesterday and decided to impromptu take off work and go see Suicide Squad.
I thought it was overall a fun movie, though the beginning felt rushed. I liked the banter, thought Will Smith, Margot Robbie (Harley stole the show) and even Jared Leto did a great job in their roles. It had more characters than it needed IMO (Captain Boomerang? Why?) and I had issues with the ending, but I enjoyed the film nonetheless.
Did you see it? What did you think?
Personal DeadlineI realize I need to be a lot more professional when it comes to this project of mine. I've been way too lackadaisical with my approach, just drawing girls on a whim, getting done whenever I get done. The last girl took almost a week of off and on noodling...at that rate it's going to take nearly two years to be done with this project.
One of the themes of the "Product not Project" approach was a time line, something like no less than three months (enough time for serious effort) but no more than one year (so the project doesn't drag on forever). I posted girl #1, The Rider, back sometime in May, so it's been about two months, and I'm on #17 now. So I decided to give myself a deadline... If I can't get to #30 by August 15, 2016, then I need to reconsider this project.
"Finished, not perfect" is another theme of the project I have latched onto, so I need to focus on images I can complete more quickly. Less backgrounds perhaps. Simpler ideas...gotta figure out a way to
A major screw up. UPDATE[UPDATE] When I searched for PhotoRec as suggested by wbd I came up with something called Wondershare, which is much the same thing. I downloaded it, and ran it, and it was able to recover a great many of the lost files. The problem is it cost money to actually enable me to save the files, and most of the .PSDs were corrupt. I was able to recover a great many other things, including the sprites I made for my Jet Dancer game and many comic files.
I also found a program that can recover corrupt PSDs, but it too is pay software and I'm going to have to wait before I can buy more. But it seems the technology does exist for me to be able to recover what I have lost.
Just thought I'd share...I was in the middle of trying to create a recovery disk for Windows 10 because my old desktop PC is on the verge of giving up the ghost. I put in an SD card in my other computer to create the disk with...but it wasn't until I finished the process that I realized I'd put my main SD card in the drive..
Trying to stay focused.Stuck on girl #10 for my project! I drew up a couple of concepts but new ideas are fighting for attention in my head! I came up with a comic idea featuring an updated approach to older characters, and I got it in my head to teach myself ZBrush or Sculptris so I can learn to create miniatures of my characters (or RPBs) and put them on display...or on sale. I also have been thinking of making ebooks about my coloring or sprite-making process. Aargh, stupid imagination...
Game thoughtsI recently acquired a PS4 (finally) and as I was perusing the game store, I felt the need to randomly write up this list.
Video game turn-ons for me:
⦁ Is it a side-scrolling platformer (ex: Castlevania), top down action RPG (ex: Diablo III), 3rd person action (ex: Warframe) or role-playing game (ex: Tales Of Symphonia), a SHMUP (Soldner-X2) or turn-based RPG/SRPG (ex: Final Fantasy Tactics)?
⦁ Does it let you create, or play as, an attractive female character? (Sexy preferably) - this will even cause me to give otherwise bad games a pass because I want to see more of it. Ex: Saints Row series, Freedom Wars, Bayonetta
⦁ If it's a shooter, does it have a good single player campaign? Ex: Bioshock Infinite
⦁ Is the game in a sci-fi or fantasy setting? Ex: Warframe, Devil May Cry
Video game turn-offs for me:
⦁ Is it set in modern times and if so, is it hyper-realisti

Cotton Mouth Species Info *UPDATE*THIS IS A CLOSED SPECIES MEANING YOU MAY NOT MAKE ONE UNLESS YOU ARE A CO-OWNER!!
Okay, well like in the name they have mouths (of course XD) but as their tails. They also have cotton like puffs near their mouths, this is to protect their tails' 'sensitive spot'. All cotton mouths have a sensitive spot, sometimes they even have more then one. Hurting their sensitive spot can cause the to become serverly ill.
Common- Common just consists of the cotton near their mouths on the tail. The tail can be very protective of the pony it's on if it feels threatened by another substance.
Uncommon- Uncommon consists of the tail having two cotton parts. That means it's more sensitive and affectionate towards its pony, and others sometimes.
Rare- Rare consists of having cotton on the neck of the pony, multiple cotton parts on the tail, and even some cotton on the hoofs (And in unique moments having two tails two horns and/or four wings;two on each si
