remember to take a rest after every pause.
Should I take a nap after each period? :p
Just pointing out I'm not *sure* if I understand your hint because "take a rest" and "pause" could have different meanings... If the hint itself is a play on words or something, I'm totally lost. Wait, I'm lost anyway ^^;...
Note : I tried taking a pause (stop reading) after each period... yet, it didn't bring anything new forward, so... help ^^;

I haven't been posting much lately due to everything in school coming to a crashing close. But now I've got a plethora of time and I'm ready to put it to good use working on art and my VN once again.

With that, here's a bento I packed. It's not exactly traditional Japanese, but I hope it's still delicious looking. XD

And here is the final colored version of something I posted earlier. I wound up making it really flat and simple looking because I decided I wanted it to have a childish storybook feel to it.

monele: here's another hint. TAKE a rest after each full stop.
How do you make your games? I see. Thank you for the prompt replies, but it is my considered opinion that you're doing it wrong inefficiently because I am a perfushenal professional. Do it my way this way and we can all ascend VN Nirvana together while allowing me to stroke my ego you will improve much faster. Also, please don't forget to thank me for this constructive critique or I will cry and bore you to death respond appropriately with a tl;dr rant discourse of epic adequately lengthy proportions. - Sarcasm Veiled in Euphemism: Secrets of Forum Civility by lordcloudx (Coming soon to an online ebook near you.)

Saying to take it after every stop is misleading, isn't it? Because there's one that isn't after a stop (unless I'm wrong and there's a bizarre coincidence at the same time). Wouldn't it be better to say to take what stands out?

Mmm... I've tried taking out the words at every single stop and piecing them together, but it doesn't look like anything recognizable came out. XD Okay, I'm totally stumped here. @_@;; What's the big secret? XD

it's been awhile. here's some WIPs and experimentations so I don't look dead. :o You can tell (maybe?) I'm working on my backgrounds and general color sense. These are the backseat projects going on while I work on Twilight. :)

Start things off with an old sketch ripped from a friend's sketchbook that I drew on:

Then a blinky blinky:

Then a rough color sense / composition / general style / technique practice with photoshop BG:

This is where I applied it, a random side project to refresh my Ren'py:
Note: I did not do the sprite. It's all DannyChoo's: http://www.dannychoo.com

A Wip i'm working on a little bit at a time:
demo00.jpg
Current Non-Twilight-break Illustration, (hopefully) 2-days to finish... (first day was today, this is how far I got from blank paper, scan, coloring, etc.) First illustration I've done where everything was thought of as unified rather than parts overlapping each other; it's a bit harder than I thought to do so with digital anime style, since I don't draw the background during the traditional paper stage.

Dysfunctional Systems
Juniper's Knot
Cradle Song, a visual novel in development
Memo, a visual novel

[02:49] <Komi> How is Dysfunctional Systems coming along?
[02:52] <Doomfest> have you seen prince of egypt
[02:53] <Doomfest> do you remember that scene with the storm of bugs
[02:54] <Komi> I know what you are talking about, but I can't remember the scene.
[02:54] <Doomfest> that is what it feels like
[02:55] <Komi> Personality conflicts on the team, I take it?
[02:56] <Doomfest> no
[02:56] <Doomfest> just bugs
[02:56] <Doomfest> storm of bugs

@monele & samu-kun: Actually, both of you got it pretty close, but I will explain more in this post.

@sake-bento: That single non-fullstop pause is intentional. And the hint is supposed to be a riddle itself, thus it cannot be too straightforward.

"Take a rest after every pause."
Now I think most got what the pause means thanks to lordcloudx. As for the "take a rest", imagine yourself taking a break after reading something. When you continue, will it still be under the same breath?
They won't. So you treat each sentences as a new line. After you line them up, you will find something like this(From the first two paragraphs):

Once, there was a story...
No children in the town ever...
Enjoying the warm attention, the...

"Far away from this place, there...
In a town named Nezined.
Little was she, she was a....
Everyone lived there liked her."

The message can be read by tracking all the first letters. Happy solving.
Oh right, new avatar.

Aw, drat. I come here to post that I've figured out the secret in F.I.A.'s image, and I find he's told people how to find it :P
Very clever trick, though! I don't know how to make a picture like that! :lol:

The secret is interesting. It seems to hint at a strange story. The hole confuses me, though. :)


Also, yes, Doomfest's art is awesome :)
I released 3 VNs, many moons ago: Elven Relations (IntRenAiMo 2007), When I Rule The World (NaNoRenO 2005), and Cloud Fairy (the Cute Light & Fluffy Project, 2009).
More recently I designed the board game Steam Works (published in 2015), available from a local gaming store near you!

I guess it's about time I posted something again. I still have long way to go, but it's slowly getting better.
*Looks above.*
Wow, everyone is so good.

I need help, any advice is welcomed :)

Well, i always was better at abstract drawing, I was never good at actually drawing something that made sense :shock: , last year(i think) i came to read some manga tutorials, but gave up pretty quick, so like a year without drawing anything i decided to give it another shot and came up with this:

Head try

it took me some good 15 to 20 mins, I know... really slooow, but at least it looks decent. Except for the hair that i haven't read any tutorials... I like the eyes, though not sure about the distance between nose and mouth.

Still I thought... with lots of practice i may be able to do some art for my game, lets try backgrounds!!!

So to backgrounds... I didn't try any tutorials on this and came up with this: awful background :(

Awful Awful Awful, it looks bizarre, out of perspective, plain Sh...t...

Discouraged i decided to go look for some tutorial, and haven't found any. Can someone point me in the right direction please?
