Dumping of things.

Nobody ever informed me that there was good rap.

I thought that was an oxymoron.

Anyways. I haven't blogged here in a million years.

Let's get to it I guess.

I gave up on Ephii because that's pretty much my MO.

I don't like spending a lot of time on something, my motivation drains too quickly and my inspiration comes at the most random times.

I've been drawing and mucking around with pixel art a whole bunch, it takes much less time to come up with a product than making a game. I keep trying out different art styles so that I won't stagnate or some artistic BS like that.

I've been trying more and more to… riff.

That's what I've been calling it anyways.

Basically I'm trying to let go of my preconceived ideas and thoughts and just make something randomly and haphazardly.

These drawings/pixels are the product of that.

I wanted to make a game the same way, and I made a bunch of assets and drawings and started on the engine for a platform brawler.

I'd post some screenshots of something but I haven't even implemented any enemies. Right now the only combat is between the main character and the debug functions of the mouse.

It'd be optionally 2-player; the Nitrome style 2-player where both players use the same keyboard.

There's knives and bats that you can use, or you can use your fists. Knives do double damage, bats have longer reach.

I stole borrowed an idea for setting up blood from a flash game.

The main character was based on my character in Saints Row 3. (Horror Pack DLC FTW.)

Although I might scrap the game because I came to realize the similarities between the concepts of this game and of Hotline Miami.

>Sociopath in an Animal Mask.

>Murdering people with bats and knives.


Ah well, at least I got some interesting drawings out of it.

PS: Eva, I haven't forgotten our thing, I've drawn your character four times and I keep screwing it up. I want it to be good.

That's one derpy werewolf you drew there…

Personally speaking, that's my favorite one.

Also riffing is exactly how Filthtime 12000 was made.

It just gets me that the eye is the same color as the background, which implies to me that there's actually a void behind the eyeholes ._.

Proportions are for squares.

That's kind of a pun if you think about it hard enough.

looking at your art makes me feel good inside.

Go home, Umbra. You're drunk.

I take it that's sarcasm.

I haven't been in the best place, emotionally or cognitively, as of late, and it's getting progressively worse.

I won't bother everyone with it, though.

I don't do sarcasm.

When I see art that I like, it builds my confidence and tells me that I'm not the only one struggling.

That there isn't anything special about what I do unless I'm actually doing it.

And when I'm not doing it, I'm worthless. All in the same instance of time.

And then I go and make some fucking Art.

FUCK YEAH Aesop Rock! You should check out some Eyedea and Abilities or Sage Francis if you want to hear some more good, heady rappers.

And that little pixel art of the fire and two bird creatures is really awesome. The background is so detailed but so minimal. I'm always amazed at how just a single pixel, when placed in the correct position, can imply detail.

A$AP Rocky?! Oh, that's cool too.
