Some Stuff That May Or May Not Be Goat Related, Also Every Word In The Title Starts With A Capital

Posted by Charlie Carlo on March 27, 2013, 10:01 p.m.

Unfortunately, none of it's goat-related. :c

I feel scattered, I guess I always do. I get the feeling that I'm in a position where I have to pick and choose what to do; like I don't have time for school, friends, video games and video game design, so I need to choose a couple. I'm decently sure that this isn't true, but I tend to spend my free time doing fuck-all, and wondering where the time went.

:/

Maybe I need the fuck-all time, though, like that's how my brain cools down or something. I need to get EVGA Precision for my brain.

Anyways, some stuff I made while not doing fuck-all is the actual purpose of this little updatey, activity-feed-exclusive, ramblog.

I made these tracks as an attempt to make an uneasy mood, because I was considering spending some spare time during my Credence Filter hiatus making an explorey platformy gamey*.

It could involve this person.

However, the fact that I'm mentioning it in a blog is probably a decent indication that it will never be finished, that seems to be the deciding factor. If I want to get something done I seem to have to never talk about it. Or maybe I'm just impatient.

Regardless, I'm heavily neurotic.

My friend once informed me that "they" discovered neurosis isn't true.

"They" disproved it.

Anyways, I seem to do my best sprite work when it isn't for me, which is weird. Maybe because when I do sprite work for my own projects I try to be more experimental. This blog has a lot of uncertainty.

Hopefully Taizen doesn't rage at me for posting this (he shouldn't because these aren't directly relevant to the story), but I was tasked at replicating these floaty nakedy blokes for Chaos Weapon.

You may have seen them in a video, they're from Dungeon Quest Man.

I really enjoyed redesigning these because they are so open for interpretation but they have a clear concept behind them, which is 'big floaty spirity people'.

Anyways, this is what I made of it.

Gods, this blog is getting much longer than I was anticipating, perhaps I'll make it front-paged as well.

One last thing before I go though, I was wondering if anyone had some music suggestions for me, I was looking for something similar to God is an Astronaut, or The Flashbulb; atmospheric but also melodic instrumental music. I'll give a listen to whatever you guys suggest.

*Adding 'y's to the ends of words instantly makes them adjectives.

I'll dip into my massive Media Monkey/iTunes music library and find some suggestions for you.

I constantly find myself wanting to detach from the world and stare off into space thinking about heaven knows what.

"fuck-all" time is a must for my sanity.

Neat looking sprites you got there. The (lower) woman's left boob looks a little off to me though. (I'm being serious).

My eyes are causing her left boob to look like her upper arm.

Awesome, awesome sprites there. Really, those are some of your best.

I know this is how it works for me. The longer I spent on somethings, the more I muddle it up with my lack of effort and careful consideration. It's why I hate my finished games gah.

Hrm, maybe it's the background. Her left forearm is meant to be obscured by her torso.

Does it look different against white?

:D Thank you, they're going to be quite a challenge to animate, but I'm pretty sure I can do it. My spriting skills are steadily improving, or at least I feel like they are. I'm concerned that by the end of development of Chaos Weapon the newest sprites wont even match the oldest ones.

I'm liking this 'Replica' tune.

I know what you mean, man. All the gems lie dormant in the 'to be finished' folder.

Ooh. Can't wait to see the result.

I imagined them just floating and fading into different frames for actions.

Good show.

Well the second's supposed to have wavy-ass hair.

Not to be confused with wavy ass-hair.

I imagine they will be animated traditionally, and not with lazy shortcuts.

>Gorillaz

lol Why do you think I don't already listen to Gorillaz? I think my favorite song by them is probably Man Research.

>Some weird anime track

This isn't really what I was looking for.

>ISIS

Holy crap, this is exactly what I was looking for, very similar to GIAA. Thanks.

>MGMT

Nah, thanks.

>Aphex Twin

What is this beautiful nonsense? D:

This and Xeno Clash, Rez, you really should just tell me about everything you've ever even heard of.

Time management, everyone sucks at it but no one more than me.

Those spirit people are terrific. Having massive blank eyes makes sense in this context!

I'm still seeing it o_0 What's making her boob look like her forearm is a combination of the middle boob line and her left boob. The middle boob line is making me mentally connect it to her lift torso line, and hence makes me see the boob as her left arm. I hope I'm making sense >_<
