I wanted to finish this tonight, but I’m slow and have (probably?) class early tomorrow. Also, I should have planned this better, and I wish white paint would be better at covering up.
So, the first image is the current state. The others are mock-ups to see where I could go with it now.
I initially planned it with black, like in the first mock-up. But white is always so nice… but with white it won’t be as crisp as it looks in these.
Homework in progress.
We had only one surface large enough for accommodating A1-sized paper, namely a still-packaged canvas that I used last time, and we need to be able to paint at the same time, so we bought a wooden board. Turns out, though, that while the canvas is wobbly, it’s also light enough to be put on the table easel. I have another normal easel which I’ve actually never used before because it’s so weird and shaky. The wooden board was way too heavy for either of the easels, the feet would just slip away under the weight. So we halfway disassembled the easel and secured its feet with string - so far it holds up.
As you can see, our flat is quite tiny. Behind the table starts the kitchen. To the left is our sofa with our laundry on it.
Also, I’m wearing colorful socks! :-)
We’ve ordered some postcards to possibly sell at the SPIEL (games expo in Essen)! We don’t have a table but since we’ll be there for the full 4 days we might take some time to rest and sell them if a spot in the artists alley is free. We are also thinking about printing some small posters.
Is anyone else going to be there? :-)
this will eventually happen
Haha, so cute. Alex will be abducted by a giant bird one day. That is, if the Alex-shaped meteor isn’t faster.
My friend Ben has been working hard on his webcomic Geomagnetic for some time now. So I drew him a little fanart picture, and it was supposed to be for his birthday but I’m waaaay late. I’m sorry, Ben! I hope you like it. Happy birthday again! :-) Keep up the good work!
Another silly Shadowrun doodle… antihelios' character again, the “half-orc” spy, Furfur!
Hehe, Alex’s slightly weird drawing of Furfur!
I’m still alive, but coughing constantly. I’ve been having a cold for a week now. I slept through the games class party and the Hamburg comic festival. u__u In fact I’ve been sleeping so much lately that I want to continue, just sleep all the time, shut out the world. I haven’t seen much sunlight, slept through the last sunny days. I also started listening to music again. Why don’t I do that more often? Why haven’t I listened to Tool in such a long time? Also, I need to draw more.
The picture is a quick badly shaded version of one of the pictures I drew during a drawing game with Ben, Sanna and Alex some weeks ago. Hence the weird combination of items and accidental phallic (according to Ben) eel. I like the octopus though! I wanted to continue refining this drawing but then didn’t.
=D The best thing I bought over at Rose City Comic Con!
A painting from the very talented thegorgonist !
Perfect fit in my new apartment!
Check out their shop! Over here!
Two of my pictures are on your wall! :D Yay!
Photos of the room where your game is shown at the PLAY14 festival. Our game is on the first computer of the first room! Also in the room are Nidhogg, Chalo Chalo which I won every time and liked a lot, A Void, Framed, and from my uni: Gone, Goku (on the same computer as our game now), A dog stole my flower, Voodoo, and Gearstone Wars.
In another room we had the chance to try an Oculus for the first time! It was a mixed experience. It was great to be able to look around and the colors were beautiful, but I could see the pixel grid. They (Lucid Trips) built quite the contraption where you had to strap into a suspension so you’d feel like you fly. They also had brought a fan which sadly did not work.
Once the controls worked, Action Painting Pro was a nice idea for a game.
In another room way in the back there were all the music and rhythm games. Partyrs was done by someone at my uni. And I can recommend Crypt of the Necrodancer with dancing mats which you can try there!
I enjoyed the exhibition a lot. I got to try a lot of different games and meet some very nice people.
