I've been writing more in the common route, today. I like how things are going regarding the writing...
Here are some new pictures: a picture of Risa in the style I'm doing, and Liberare in the style I'm doing.

I don't plan on Risa changing her expression because her body's made of metal. I may still end up making several sprites of her in different poses, however.

Have been writing a bit more, lately, on the common route. I checked the script and here's what it says:
Statistics:

The game contains 661 dialogue blocks, containing 9,214 words and 47,873
characters, for an average of 13.9 words and 72 characters per block.
Right now, I'm just trying to write in sequence, without skipping around. I find that when I skip around, I sometimes write things that don't get used. That's part of why you may see the word count here as low: some of the writing I did earlier just isn't being used and, while I do plan on using some of my earlier writing, I haven't gotten to the point(s) in the story where they get plugged into it, so they aren't counting toward this word count. Once I do get to the point(s) in the story where they get plugged in, they will count toward the word count. I hope that makes some sense...

Progress is coming slowly and steadily. Hope you're all staying warm and having a nice holiday season. :heart:

Happy new year and happy 2020, everybody. ^_^
I just had a vacation and was spending lots of time with people during the holidays, as you'd expect, so I haven't been working on The Silent Column too much, recently. I'm going to have enjoy working on it more, this year. ^^
All that said, I do have a picture for you: another sprite of Serra's:

I've also been thinking of the structure of the story, and think that the demo (aka first part of part of the story) will introduce the player to Serra, Nithi, Amy, Kina, Josephine, and Thidria, and allow them to choose to focus on one of them - so I'll be focusing my efforts toward creating the assets that will be used in that part of the story.

Earlier I mentioned that when I don't write in sequence, works of writing end up being potentially unusable. As such, I only shared the word count from the beginning of the story to the point where I'd written up to.
Well... that seems to be how it is with making other assets, as well, which is obvious: I need to wait until I have the story written before I can accompany it with art and music. Trying to make art at the same time as the story could give me inspiration, but I may end up creating lots of things that don't actually fit the writing and so won't be used.
So, I'm focusing on the writing until I have the demo written. Then I'll focus on other assets.
Here's the most recent word count in sequence from the start~ ^^
Statistics:

The game contains 1,038 dialogue blocks, containing 13,842 words and 72,006
characters, for an average of 13.3 words and 69 characters per block.
I'll see you next time.

Edit: Actually~ while me talking about not making artwork until the writing's all done made sense on paper, I can't help it~~~ I wanna make art so I will. ^^ Some of it may not end up getting used and that's fine: I just like art making. ^^ It's weird how some things can make sense on paper but not be how people or life work, you know? I'm still trying to write in sequence, though: I'm finding that it's helping me. See y'all next time.

Edit 2: I'm noticing that some pictures aren't getting hosted properly, so~~ here's my Deviant Art. I post a lot of my art on there: https://www.deviantart.com/sellillianna
