Short Ludum Dare break.

Got some stuff done, so I can move to other stuff that needs doing. But first, mmh.

Slapped some color on these. In retrospect not that happy with 'em, but they're not entirely worthless. Could have pushed the contrast even further. Eh.

Anyway, busy with Ludum Dare #27. Am I going to I make it?

Doodling Takes Time

Okay, these drawings are... probably close to four, five hours of doodling. Two TV show episodes and one eighties movie passed. It's possible to figure out which one, from the hints in this sheet.

They -- the doodles -- don't have much going on with them. I started wanting to do some interesting silhouettes, and couldn't. It was just, impossible. My favourite is the armor/cyborg thing and the hat.
Still, it's something to post, at least. Something.

In other news, I'll try to participate in Ludum Dare 27. Wish me endurance. I've stocked up on pizza and energy drinks. Also, bananas and oranges.

Looking at Things at an Angle.

Is that the correct title casing? I never know...

Anyway, since I'm loathe to waste paper, I made use of the earlier sheet, proving again that if you can draw cubes you can draw anything.

Since I'm loathe to waste screen space, I crammed all the drawings into the smallest possible space.
I'm still not sure which way I want to go, design-wise, but I'm enjoying myself, mostly.

Also, just magic wand + delete gave some interesting visual results, so I took them and ran. The portrait series up-left is meant to be a Doom - type thing, with neutral/getting hit/attacking/quad damage modes, so to speak.

Eating My Own Dog Food.

What a colourful expression. 

No, not the picture.
Remember the paint app from wayback? I tweaked it. Also threw it on github, since Gitorious doesn't seem to want to recognize my credentials.

Anyhoo, now it can actually create new canvases, has keyboard shortcuts and an adjustable pen tool size. also some odd bugs.

I've also been monkeying around in youtube, testing timelapse and screen capture things using CamStudio, which isn't that great, but is free, so  the price is right.

What's this, then?

Would be kind of premature to tell, since I don't know if this is the direction I'm going, I think. Maybe. I have an alternate idea which may be more interesting, perhaps.

Hand-to-hand studies


No reference outside my, I guess you could call it kinesthetic sense. Not satisfied with the middle kick thingy.

Kinda like the amount of suggested musculature in the bottom scribbles.

It needn't be said, this isn't at all what I intended to do when I started doodling. I actually wanted to do some character designs, but that's clearly not where it went.

I'm not very social; That's why I mostly prefer shouting into the void through my blog, instead of participating in forums or in chat or somesuch. I've had a great time at forums, mind you - Since forums are very theme-focused, they're a great place to find people in the same, or right mindset as you.

Well, it's panic o'clock, so I gotta go.
