Widdershins. Since you're the only one to reply thus far, I'll do you a solid and reveal both. :lol:

Here's Isven the orca and "Indi" the clownfish respectively, left to right!

Thanks for your interest! Indi seems to be a favorite amongst my friends and the artist herself!

Ahhh, first public reveal makes me kind of shy... >//<

W-well! In any case~ some updates from me! :D

I started adding music! It would be cool if I could commission it but for now, I'm going the CC route.
I've also added image buttons to the text box aaaand a notification bell sound every time an encyclopedia entry is unlocked.

A bunch of things got re-written but I'm still staying pretty tight lipped on the plots so I can't say much about that.

Soh's route is trudging along--and I do mean trudging because I've been way busy lately, mainly working on another writing commission--but I might be able to get his route will be finished this month and at the worst, next month.

Officially, Nova is the only one without clean line art--however, we're doing expressions before colors so it might be a while yet before a full on sprite-by-sprite art reveal. :B

Oh, wow-- both look terrific! Now I really can't wait to see further art reveals. :D It's great there is already such distinct visual variety, prior to colors being added in; the characters are incredibly expressive, too, giving a strong sense of each personality. Well done, you and artist both!

It sounds like you're progressing at a good clip, overall-- especially if you anticipate finishing a sticky route during such a busy month! Looking forward to future updates.

Widdershins. Thank you! :D Wait until you see what they wear. :lol:

It's been a while since I updated the thread so I just wanted to pop in with some great news!

/o/

1. Ocean Pearls is OFFICIALLY.... 50% complete! What that basically means is that of the five routes, now 2.5 are done! Soh's route is chugging along, though it's not finished as quickly as I would've liked. I hit some writer's block but that's been conquered and dealt with :'D

The word count is a nice 127k!

2. 14 out of 15 sprites are completed their expressions line art! That said, I'm now seeking a colorist! See the first post of this thread for details. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me for more details.

3. 70% of the BGs for the demo are complete!

I've been considering releasing route by route but I haven't quite decided because it kind of depends on if I can hire a colorist sometime soon... We'll see! ^o^

Notice anything about the first post?

...That's right, Lemos and Isven have been added to the first post! Here's some full body close ups!

Image

Image

I've also got some interviews coming... Here's parts 1 - 3 of "Meet Lemos", a small series of tweets I did so to help players get to know the kings!

Hope you enjoyed this update!

Re: Ocean Pearls [GxB] [Fantasy, Romance] Art Update!

#36 Post by pyopyon » Wed Jan 30, 2019 9:59 am

It is Wednesday my dudes [lets out shrill scream while in a Spider-man costume]

Here I am, rolling in hot with an update!

Basically, there is more art, but I can't reveal it yet. Side characters for Lemos' route are D-O-N-E!

Right now, next up, are the last three love interests-- "Indi", Soh, and ???

Indi is complete but he's getting his hair tweaked just a bit! We're waiting on Soh and our final, secret love interest who, after much thought and deliberation, I've decided not to reveal before the game is released. :'D

That being said, I've also got an update in the form of a part 1 (of 3) interview with Isven!

Image

...hopefully he'll feel like cooperating soon.

I forgot to post about it here, but better late than never. OP is going to be on hiatus, as I've run into some financial difficulties. I'll re-open the thread once progress can be made again.

Thank you as always for your silent support. :^)

Minyan. Not even close to likely. H-ha... ha... thanks for the well wishes. And I love his gills too! ^^

Huebear. I did, yes! An assistant colorist would be helpful, but unfortunately, this project is on hiatus due to financial difficulties. Thank you for your interest, however;;
