Hello my fellows and ladies,
I've done quite a lot of artwork lately, and I'm happy with it.
I plan on keeping all of them in the game. Not all are perfect but I like them all, and if I were to continually re-do everything over and over again depending on whims, nothing would ever be released. All I can do is make art to the best of my abilities at the time and produce better things as time goes on.
I'm going to take a break from art as I have quite a bit, already. :)
I'm going to be trying to focus on the music for quite a long time and I don't expect to be quick about calling songs done or sharing them with you. I'm not as good at making music as I am at making art- I want to take my time to make sure the songs sound good. :)
I'll see y'all later. :)
This is Maielle.
I don't know how much artwork I'll end up doing, so instead of saying things like
"Character portraits: _/_"
Which states that I'm aiming for a particular number of character portraits and am a percentage of the way to that goal, I'll just have a counter without any "end goal" number. So, for example, this:
"Art asset count: _"
Also, a reminder that I won't always post the pictures I do online- I want there to be pictures no one has seen before when they play the visual novel. :)
I'm going to be doing notably more Liberare character portraits than I estimated. Characters occasionally change their clothes, especially depending on the season.
I narrowed my scope again since I'm just a one-man team:
Instead of doing over 30 character portraits in Liberare and over 30 in Vadleen, I'll just do 15 each. I'll also do 15 backgrounds for each, too.
I've been enjoying writing the story, lately. I've missed doing it- I wasn't getting to write when I was developing it as a video game because I was having to do a bunch of other stuff.
The art assets for Liberare currently stand at 7/15 character portraits and 3/15 backgrounds.
The art assets for Vadleen currently stand at 0/15 character portraits and 0/15 backgrounds.
See y'all! ^_^
