Fade In - Back in business

Monday, August 27th, 2007

Thanks to Mr. Stephen Stair, I have a new location for my blog. Hopefully when the name servers propagate through the internet this post will come up and you won’t even know the difference.
Give him a round of internet applause! ;-)
He’s a fellow programmer, with his own blog there in the friends list.
ps. testing […]

Black sketch #2

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

Well here it is, black sketch number 2… things have been adjusted again… this time the quality may look a little worse, because I was attempting to not use sketchy lines, which produces crappy non-straight lines, verses sketchy straight ones… in any case this one is better in the fact that I added the […]

Continuing to post —

Saturday, August 18th, 2007

I’m going to post anyways… i’ll fill in the rest of the posts if I can get my blog onto another webhost.
First black pencil sketch… Not sure how the final clean up is going to turn out, but I modified this sketch a bit… made the dresser only 4 drawers and the bookcase only 5 […]

Fare thee well

Friday, August 17th, 2007

Looks like my hosting is going to go down for good, and so I don’t know how long the blog will be here. I’ll have to either restart or restore the whole database and all on a new webhost, which most likely will cost money. In any case thanks you few who actually […]

Enchanted try #4

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

Okay let’s try this again, I think i’ve almost nailed it. I also did something that might be a little risky. I changed the bed around to the front, and added a book case in the back. then moved out the hamper into the middle. So basically it’s framed by some […]

Enchanted try number 3…

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

Well actually i kept wasting paper because I kept getting either too close, or not wide enough or whatever… The last image was good but it didn’t actually have a door, uhoh, big mistake.
I think this new one is the best as far as getting everything in there. I think I […]

Enchanted sketches

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

Okay here’s another yellow/blue sketch for the first background in my game. Notice the perspective is better. I screwed around with the levels to make the pencil marks show up better, it’s mostly for viewing online. The final version will be cleaned up totally, and inked darkly in order to start the […]

Enchanted first room sketches

Monday, August 13th, 2007

Well you probably know by now, but the way i’m doing my rooms are i’m doing some concept thumbnails to get the layout I want, then proceed with what i call the “yellow” sketch… I use a yellow colored pencil and block in the major shapes. Then it’s on to blue sketch, where […]

Enchanted Lands first background concept sketch

Saturday, August 11th, 2007

Boy is that a lot to swallow. In any case, I’ve been doing several sketches of the first scene or room, and it’s literally a bedroom. John Thomas’ room. This is the layout I liked the best because it was the most interesting, however there may be some problems dealing with the […]

Tricky stuff when embedding youtube videos –

Monday, August 6th, 2007

Hopefully this will work. If you see the video in the following post, just leave a comment. You DO NOT NEED to play the video, it’s quite embarrassing as it is. But I was having a problem embedding youtube videos — I guess wordpress has this problem of mangling the tags. […]
