Hi there, have a random update about my life and art plans and stuff, I dunno
So first of all, I'm just starting my senior year of high school, which is kinda exciting, although I have my doubts about whether I'll be prepared to live on my own once it's over. Oh, and there's also this mandatory writing course I have this semester, and of course I can't write on a deadline at all, so that'll probably ruin the next few months of my life... -.- That said, I've got some classes in the spring I'm way more excited for, i.e. psychology and graphic design. Plus my school gives seniors the opportunity to take on independent projects near the end of the year, and I'd love a chance to put together some actual video game demos. Hopefully the freakin' writing doesn't kill me before I get to those.
Between school, working on college applications, and the fact that my good computer died a few days ago and I won't have access to Photoshop for a while, my activity on here is probably gonna take a dive for two or three months. But I do still have one major project I'm hoping to make a more thorough reveal of soon: ARCANA CREW, my original video game series concept following the adventures of six spellcasters from very different backgrounds, set in the mystical yet modern-era high fantasy world of Tocari! The details are probably going to come out in small bits as I create the supporting art for them, but it's definitely about time I start gathering feedback on the concept and story as I start thinking about turning it into an actual game. For now, if anyone's interested in knowing just a bit more, I do have this pixel art of the main protagonists
As for Paper Mario: Double Darkness, don't worry, I still want to fill in some of the ideas I haven't explained as much. I have been working on a complete tattle log, featuring full battle stats and Specteira's commentary on all 144 enemies in the game, and also plan to plot out at least a couple level maps. And, of course, there's always those mockups. Stay tuned!
Finally, I know an art website is probably not a very suitable place to bring this up, but I've been kinda not-very-seriously considering trying out streaming as a hobby, just to make gaming that much more interesting. If I did, I'd probably play Paper Mario 64 Glitchless speedruns most of the time, as well as some Splatoon 2 and maybe some casual stuff even. Thing is, I'm worried it would just be kind of pathetic if no one ever watched it. So if you've got some kind of advice on how to start streaming, or how to get your image out, or just want to say it sounds like a cool idea, let me know!
That's all for now, thanks for allowing me waste a few minutes of your life to whine about my own. Oh, and keep an eye out for that hopefully-coming-soon Arcana Crew art! Later!
