In past months I have started working on a few new things that I’d love to share.
Halls of Ivy
It’s a brand new series of tutorials and art resources available on my Patreon. While everyone can view basic tutorials, Patrons can access additional content such as unique color palettes and photoshop add-ons (brushes, custom shapes, patterns).
Planning a small chibi tutorial as well, though I’m currently working on a new way of rendering chibis for some extra pop! Once method has worked out, I’ll share some previews.
I added a preview for some Dessa and Tal action, though full version is Patron-exclusive, because, y’know, NSFW. Got some more stuff coming, although other work is more important right now~
Thanks to LittleCodingFox and his amazing wiki generating software, I have now a clean method of sorting all my notes from past 10+ years. It took a bit to get used to due its capabilities and limitations, although despite lacking some functionality here in there, it serves me better than any software such as Evernote, Onenote etc. Those were laggy af once filled with information, while Static Wiki makes it as fast and smooth as possible.
I’ll share some previews once I’m done with a few full pages~
Due to development and management issues I’ve quit BnS for time being. Tried out private server for BDO but it came out disappointing after a while of playing. Currently grinding my ass off in Warframe whenever I got some spare time – despite initial disdain I’ve been positively surprised and surely I’m having fun. Hell, I don’t even like shooters (Mass Effect being an exception)!
Well, at least I thought so.
After some digging and learning basic Python, I went through a process of developing some seemingly complicated systems for a game. Yes, a game! I’m working on an adventure-style visual novel set in Varyel.
So far I coded some interesting stuff such as working inventory system (armor, weapons, consumables, quest items), character stats (working on proper calculation based off varyel’s mechs), basic map navigation and initial story sequences.
Previews and details are already available on my Patreon, but in upcoming months I’ll share some details here as well.
Also, tomorrow my mother will be coming to visit, so apologies if my responses on discord/email are delayed.
While working on seasonal gifts and new chapter of the comics, I didn’t find much time to share any of my recent work. Sadly, even though my hopes were high for January being bountiful when it comes to art, my tablet had quite a different idea of working.
For those who don’t know, my tablet is one of the old, discontinued wacom products. It’s small, has multiple cracks, and cord was broken and re-tied multiple times. It’s covered in meters of purple tape we got from electronics shop, and most of the times I need an entire hour to get it to work (connection issues between usb port and the cord, cord not being straight enough to “click”, old-ass drivers that crash randomly etc etc).
Due to this guy being so beaten up and sometimes refusing to even use it’s own pressure plate, so it started getting rough to draw anything that cannot bring income. You see, when it dies, I’ll be SOL and have no way of making money and all my artistic growth and the starting career will just die in ashes. So I got to focus on getting a new one first.
Due to that, I found this buddy that I can get 20% cheaper from local reseller due to my loyalty points, so the idea is to gather enough money to get a new one before this one dies. For a change would grab size M and finally be able to do my job without being zapped by sticking out cords.
Obviously, there’s no way I can just buy it. You know the deal, we’re living on 140 USD monthly, and entire 40 of it is going for paying off CC. Yeah, that makes approximately $5 daily we can spend.
I need your help! I set up proper donation via Ko-fi (they’re an official Paypal partner!) which you can find here. So if you got some spare cash, it would be amazing if you could help me out! If one-time donation isn’t your thing, you can always become my Patron, from as little as $1 monthly, and get access to all my NSFW projects!
For people who donate above $20 I’ll be preparing additional gifts once I get my tablet, so remember to write down your name!
On Ko-fi there’s a mention of monitor together with the tablet donation. My laptop screen had issues for over a year now and I’d love to grab a cheap replacement to aid my vision.
Thanks to amazing deals from Namecheap, we were able to get a nice hosting for a fair price. My old domain is still taken, so enjoy this one, which is luckily matching my screen name on social media 🙂
The old website was good, but sadly – all data contained was lost and we got to work from the scratch. This time it should be faster, since the idea is already here.
Thanks to all of you for continuous support. Stay safe, be kind.
