Progress – Election Fighter


Sketch and early animation for Elizabeth Warren character in our Election Fighting game.

We’re doing this as a practice game to learn basic stuff like how to file an LLC and how to submit to Steam and iOS.

It’s also a good art challenge.

Warren’s character model is Kim from The Venture Bros, and her animation model is Momoko from King of Fighters.

Gallery – 100 Days of Art Practice Days 91-100


And finally, the end! After 112 days (5/28 to 9/17), I’ve done 100 days of art practice.

It was a very good exercise, and I’m going to keep going (a bit slower) to 200.

A few sketches first.

I got to be my wife’s apprentice for a proper canvas painting! We did this for our new house, based off one of my favorite Kazu Kibuishi drawings.

Bunny.

Old Babushka.

My own first attempt at canvas. First a sketch, then a painting.

A tree from our friend Amy’s pottery making birthday party.

And my final practice picture. I like this one a lot.

But wait, there’s more! A few days after day 100, I was the apprentice for my wife again, for another large canvas, and this time I did a lot more. So this is kind of my final submission.

Progress Video – Some Kind of Poetry Game?


Here’s a quick progress video for an idea I’m chasing down.

It’s the core mechanic for either a school RPG or a dreamy adventure game. In either case, the idea is to have a poetry jam where the player has to know a poem well enough to pick the next lines at speed.

For the RPG, I think what I want here is to have the player and the opponent exchange verses; if the player fails a verse, the opponent automatically picks it up, and vice versa. The winner is whoever does it better.

I’ll post more later if this idea bears fruit, and if it doesn’t, I won’t!
