I’m sorry for not posting any new updates recently. I got hooked on my new blog FC2 which died out quickly. I’ll be back to posting more regularly soon but first I need to get better. I’ve been sick on and off and then busy studying various things. Mostly I’ve been putting my efforts in trying to learn a bit of python and understand Blender 3D better. I’ve also been learning Ren’py to try and make a visual novel. I gave up on rpg maker vx. It was fun but I found out quickly that my real interests lied with Visual Novels and I needed more control. The fact that ren’py requires coding drew me too it. At first I abandoned it immediately but I felt guilty, so I learned some basic python to try and understand where I was going wrong and then it clicked. Ren’py is surprisingly easy. Far easier than trying to make a VN (Visual Novel) in C++. I breifly looked at games made with C++ seeing how many people bragged about anything worthwhile is build in C/C++ and I must say that to do so would easily take 10 years. I don’t think people realise how much coding goes into making even the simplest game.
Anyway, when I come back I will be sharing various things in my posts. More storenvy features, things I’ve been cooking that are intersted and Webcomic updates! Also I may start taking art requests or art trades again but it will all have to wait until I am more ready and organised. But I shall be back!
I’ve gone back to using blender. Finally I am comfortable making 3D anime in it. Soon I hope to make 3D comics with my anime models. Maybe one day I will make games but that is a long way away yet because I really have a lot to learn about the blender game engine. I also uploaded a speed model on youtube. I’ll be back to posting on my wordpress soon. I just need to get a little more organised so I can post interesting things. I’ll also be doing more store features as well.
Finally I found a way to get decent screen recordings of my painting process. Half the reason before when I said I was going to post one was because of two issues that prevented it. After an hour of recording the codec destroyed the whole video or all the important parts or converting the video file would damage it completely. I switched from CamStudio to Debut Screen Capture by NCH Software. Today I will be uploading another video.
This video is speed up from a few hours. It’s not the whole drawing but enough for some to see my work flow with how I draw and paint faces and hair. Some of you may notice how indecisive I get when it comes to colours but I get somewhere eventually.
My next video that I will post tomorrow is one where I am painting in ArtRage Studio Pro 3.
I’ll be starting the new year with some store features and hopefully now that I’ve changed screen recording programs I hope strongly to be back to posting speedpainting videos and art tutorials. But it’s a matter of wait and see at this point. I did make a real time painting of me digital painting in sketchbook pro 6. Check it out
