Little by little... Bit by bit...

Good news... I've been busy. Bad news... It's been with nothing to do with this blog. And some of it has been to do with playing games. And a lot of it has nothing to with anything.

But let's not focus on the irrelevant any more than we have to. So work is pretty busy, since we are leading up to releasing this week (I still don't know if I should talk about what it is we've been working on... It's not like this blog will gain us any sales anyway :P). Naturally, after a hard days work I'd prefer to come home and not do anything too taxing. Luckily, that's where new games come in. I should really write about them sometime... but not tonight. Maybe something about why Rockband is better than Guitar Hero or something.

I've done a little bit more of this thing to the left. So I thought i'd put it up. Obviously, still not that impressive.

OH... and its just occured to me its missing background details... oops.

It's a rough life...

I'm lagging behind because of my little weekend holiday. I had grand plans of filling in time with my laptop while waiting for things to happen, but unfortunately weddings tend to busy affairs... The time I did have I just messed around looking at settings I hadn't seen before (I now have multitouch contextual controls on the eee pc touchpad! Suck it Mac users... you're not so special now!).

That doesn't help this blog much though. Tonight I did a little more of this next project tho.. So I figure I may as well throw what I've done up as a token effort. More to come tomorrow.

Revenge of the Kitty Lickers

I spent most of the weekend "researching" Rockband and Red Alert 3, so I didn't really do as much stuff as I was hoping to do. I did get around to finishing my sister's bowling team shirt though, as envisioned to the left. I'm happy enough with it.

So this week, I have a truckload of things to catch up on, not to mention that I feel bad because I haven't added anything to my site lately... But at the same time, being in beta is very stressful and I definitely need the time to relax and get the anger out of my system. I'll see what I can do tho.. maybe I can combine the two: work on some project that allows me to do angry things in the name of development. Only time will tell.

The Kitty-Licker Saga, Pt.2

So not much new to report either today. Just more of this thing that I have to get done or the family will disown me. Due to the overwhelming responses, and Esta's incredible decisiveness, not only did I attempt to draw a girl cat, but it's now your only choice.

It still needs a little work done to it and the line work isn't finished yet, and then I have to work out how I'm going to get it looking ok with only 3 colors, but that's all work for tomorrow night I think.

Also, there's way too much winking going on in this image at the moment. I think I might have to make some adjustments to the ball.

I am too rooted today to be bothered with anything interesting. Everything else is proceeding in accordance with the prophecy.

You're just lucky you're family Esta...

I totally forgot that I promised my sister another t shirt design thing, so that's what I've been hitting tonight.

This ones for her champion lawn bowls team, the newly named 'Kitty lickers'.

I pretty happy with the ball (or kitty, if you will...) so far, but it's gotten way too late and I haven't had time to finish off the kitty (or cat, if you will...). Not that I'm sure I'm happy with the cat yet... I mean, there is only so many ways you can draw a ball with facial features and a tongue, but there is many more ways to draw a cat (and skin it for that matter).

So I guess this is the point for audience participation... Obviously the cat is going to be bigger and match the style of the ball, but... Should I continue down my current path, drawing a slight disgusted/angry kitty, or should I draw some kind of sexy/suggestive kitty who enjoys a good licking? Furthermore, does that make me some kind of furry if I draw the latter? And just how the hell do you draw a suggestive cat? Why does everything my sister wants me to draw involve massive tongues? Only you can decide in this bizarre twisted tale of choose your own (mis) adventure.
