Oooh, that's just as cool! ^_^

He's really only prickly to Christian because he hates him. XD He's pretty friendly towards other people.
Yeah, I picked that up from your writing extract as well but didn't know it was just directed at Christian.

For Auro,

Yay, a background. Can't wait to see it completed.

And I spent way too many hours watching that guy paint his backgrounds from the utube link in your twitter (awesome!!).

Viola's route is about done now, I just need to do a little bit more editing and then I'm getting it beta'ed. I usually don't do this for game routes but Viola is a very special case and I want to make sure I do right by her. I had a friend visiting from out of state so I wasn't as productive as usual, but I'll be throwing myself back into work now.

I come bearing another scene preview, this time from the second common route scene. It's Sacha's debut! The entire scene is posted on my premium blog, so if you have access to that then check for the day 22 entry so you can read the whole thing instead of just this snippet.

oliver is such a cheesy nerd oh my gosh

Also, I'm all of a sudden really interested by the dynamic between Christian and Viola. They seem to be really in tune with one another and I'd really like to see how that plays out in the full game!

(I love how this was a scene focused on Sacha and I talked about everyone besides her and her brother whoops)

Been working on a background, it's mostly done but I still want to refine the lighting and colours a bit.

Ooh, I like your colour scheme.


My suggestions (feel free to toss them in the bin)
The brown building could use a little more colour - maybe make the drain pipes and gutters green or something, change the colour of the windows wood bits and maybe add a few lines of bright light on the glass if it's in direct sunlight.
I feel my eyes pulling to the left - maybe make the shadows on the builing on the right (the arch and near the door) much darker.

But looking good.

Oliver tries so hard, bless him. :'( I'm glad that you're interested in their dynamic! I think that will play out interestingly from route to route, for sure.

I've officially finished Viola's route! If you are trans or LGBTA with experience writing/beta’ing and would like to read through it and give us your comments, please let me know. The common route + Viola’s route is about 16,000 words. If you do this, we’ll give you a free copy of the game and everything related to it. I normally don’t have time to get my NaNoRenO stuff edited, it’s done so last-minute, but I really want to do right by Viola. I did my research and tried to be sensitive, but I’m not trans myself, so there’s a limit to my own understanding.

Anyway, let me know! We're doing this through Google Docs, as you’re just reading through the script.. /o/

@Lesleigh, thanks for the feedback! I added in some colour to the far building and I'm still working on the colours of light/shadow... I'm thinking I might pull the editing back all together but I'll handle that later.

The reason this BG is so long is because it will basically function as two backgrounds, one for the movie set and one for the filming set.

I also made a GIF of the process

I think next up I will work on this one, it will be a base and then I will make variations so one will be Christian's and the other will be Rainier's.

Ooh, this looks very promising! I'm in love with your GUI and I adore your character designs (so many outfits!) :3 Those backgrounds are amazing, as well!
I'm definitely looking forward to playing this! Best of luck to you guys! ヽ(*・ω・)ノ

@ Nayru and Lesleigh, Thank you!

Super tired so I need to go to bed!

This isn't a finished background, it's just a base. I'm going to add a bunch of variations to make it 2 backgrounds, one for Christian and one for Rainier. Lighting is still up in the air while I figure out what I want.

Image

Also kind of started this one so you can see how weird everything looks in the beginning stages

@Lesleigh, Thank you! I was actually planning on matte painting more, like I did with The Blind Griffin ones, but I seem to just be painting over them more hahaha

I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out so far, baring some more colour editing!

@Lesleigh, Hahaha, thank you XD Most of the details are actually just a bunch of messy squiggles

This is an actual location in Milan, the Parco Sempione! The structure in the background is the Arco della Pace. It's origins were the gateway to Milan.
