Pixels 'n links and stuff

I've become unsatisfied with Graphicsgale. I mean, it's not a bad program by any means, but outside it's animation capability, I feel that Paint.net or Paint Shop Pro 9 ( the one, the only, the best ) does the job better. Since I now have Ubuntu as a boot option, I've been giving GIMP another look, too... it can be quite good with a bit of customization. And then, of course, there's my own paint app... But that sucks, so nevermind. 

The problems in KZ sprites are too deep to be fixable with tweaking, so I'll need to re-draw. I think I'll go through the hand-drawn -> scanning process this time, it'll give me a better pose, and animation is easier, too...

Speaking of which, Pencil is relatively impressive. I'm not sure which I prefer, Plastic Animation Paper or it. I guess pencil is better, but I like sketching with PAP4 a bit more. Well, maybe.
On the digital painting side, I still think OpenCanvas is probably the best.

I'm also itching to do something with Adventure Game Studio.... when I'm not swamped by studies.
Oh, yeah. I did complete the Chzo Mythos series, too. Although in wrong order. Once again, 5-7-notes-6. I played 6 as the second game, and whoa huge spoilers. T_T

Something Pathfinder

Rogue, Shadowdancer, failed attempt at playing someone who doesn't talk all the time :/
The rather static posing may be because I've been thinking in side scrollers lately.

I'm liking the boots.

Took more than five minutes, yes.

*edit* I hacked my paint app I've named 'JOOPaint' sufficiently that I can now haz colors.

  1. adjust image size/create new image - currently, when you start, it creates a 320x240 image.
  2. Scrollbars. It zooms to upper-left and that's it... 
  3. Also viewport
  4. Dropper
  5. Flood fill, also adjusting lineweight. Current 1px gets tiresome really fast....
  6. Layers

Guess which java app I wrote today?

  • No layers
  • No colors
  • No eraser
  • No resize
  • No flood fill
  • No pen size
  • No problem XD
Heh. I hope it's enough for a passing grade in my OO class. Load, save and zoom were implemented. Hardcoded resolution at 320x240, I think.

Old stuffs.

I haven't seen this pic in a while, so I thought I'd post it. Some issues, but I actually like the colors, so....

Gotta do this too, from time to time. I wonder what happened to Chesu?


So, yeah.
*edit2* click it. I dare ya.

Copying.... //Something

4e Warlock's 'default' appereance.

I bought a new HD today as my machine didn't seem to boot. In retrospect, it may have been a case of loose wiring, but I've been having issues with my XP install for a while now, so I had enough excuses to get a new HD.

So, lots of space. I'm transferring and reorganizing files, and currently there's still ~200GB to copy from the drive that gets retired --- my HD300LJ has started resonating in a really nasty manner, so it's the one that goes. This may be because my MP3s were on it, so it got a decent amount of access. Hm.

This leaves my current HD setup as 1000 / 500 / 250, which is plenty for my purposes.
