Sometime yesterday we hit 20,000 views! What's even better is that the second 10,000 took half the time to get as the first. Hopefully that will continue to be the case. There's no revamp like last time unfortunately as I can't be bothered and think it looks good enough at the moment.
I really love having the Blogodile here to promote myself and my work and I actually do have fun coaxing poos out of it, I just wish I had more time to focus on it consistently. I'm going to put a lot more effort into promoting the blog via Twitter and Facebook from now on.
In other new I'm currently helping Rory out again with some design stuff for an app he and a few of his friends are making so will be posting some of that soon.
And of course, the big one.
Congo War Child.
I'm currently working on getting a gameplay video together in celebration of reaching 20,000 views.
The mechanics are all in place but most of the current art is place-holder and there are no animations so I don't want to turn people away from it because it looks shit.
Here's a screenshot of the game in it's current form as some evidence that I'm actually doing something:
CWC is the piece of work my main focus is on at the moment and I'm intending for it to stay that way until it's done (mainly to prove to myself that I can see a bigger project all the way through).
I missed May the 4th this year so here's something to make up for it.
Plo Koon is a top Jedi.
I always thought that in the films he should have had a yellow lightsaber like he did originally in Jedi Power Battles and came close to giving him one in this but decided to go for the blue in the end.
Almost at 20,000 views so will do something cool when that happens (maybe a Congo War Child video update).
So unfortunately it's been a while since my last post as I haven't done much work on Congo War Child or anything else, but here's something new! I've done a few cartoon illustrations for my good friend Rory's new website AudioVineyard.net. It's a website selling royalty-free music and is amazing and definitely worth a look so go and look. Go on.
Anyway here's the images all put together:
And here's a screenshot of them working on the website:
Really happy to have my work on display in another place online and glad I could help Rory out.
More news soon hopefully, been really busy in work and out but really want to get the ball rolling with my creative work again, especially with CWC.
During a quiet period with production on The Seeker I've been working solo on a 2D shooter called Congo War Child, made in Game Maker.
It's an idea I've had for a while now and am glad to announce that development has started and most of the mechanics are in and working at present.
Without giving too much away the game is about a Congolese child soldier who has an epiphany that leads to him realising what his life has become and making a decision to bring some balance to his actions. Mainly by killing all the baddies. And some goodies.
So that's it for now. Expect updates on both Congo War Child and The Seeker in the near future.
