「高嶺の花。」 - Just a random doodle during break at work

I'm sorry for the inactivity lately. Things are getting crazy since it's my birthday week and the holidays are fast approaching. I haven't had an actual day for myself until today (but that's only because I had to take a raincheck due to exhaustion).

Can you tell I'm too girly and Hello Kitty obsessed!?

Siren's Plea is on hold at the moment since the writers and I are booked until January. We'll be back to work as soon as January rolls in. Will try to meet the deadline on February 2015...! Anyways, Happy Holidays!

So I started working on the CGs!! Yaaaaaay!
This will be the colouring style I will be using for the CGs, the messy and watercolour-like style (because it's easy and will not kill my hand lol).

So progress with the writing is going slow but ACT 1 is almost done. In terms of progress percentage...I gues I would give it 25%.
Will post more updates when the team gets more stuff done!

Till then~!

It's a bit embarrassing to admit that the demo of Siren's Plea is not close to being finished at all. Considering it's already November, I have my doubts that the team will finish it by December. I still haven't gotten over my writer's block so the writers that are helping me are stuck until I provide them a storyline/outline that needs to be written and edited.

The prologue is done for sure so that's out of the way. The problem with writing the rest of the story is the fact that I'm trying not to bombard people with too much information (of the game's world) and making it short enough for a demo. The romance routes for each romanceable characters have not been written yet (though partly but not enough to be included in the demo). If this continues, I will have to release the demo without revealing how the routes will be picked/introduced.

Programming the game is proving to be difficult as well but can't be started until the writing is done. However, I find myself writing more whenever I'm coding which...makes no sense at all.

I might consider putting up donations so that I can hire a background artist. Free backgrounds are proving to be greatly limited and I am having a hard time finding a rose garden background. The image shown is temporary since I'm writing the scenes and would like to get a feel of the atmosphere of the story. I will not be using it since I can't find the artist who made it and thus can't ask permission if I can use it for the game. I can't draw backgrounds to save my life so I'm in serious need of a background artist.

I will have to close commissions so I can focus on the game. Let me know if people will be willing to donate. I know I said I would prefer not accepting donations for the game since I will be using mostly free assets (music and some backgrounds) but...

At any rate, I'd appreciate knowing what people think so feel free to shoot me some questions. Thank you!

Progress of sprites I'm working on (Key characters):
Lila - 40 % (Re-drawing)
Adonis - 0% (Re-drawing)
Samuel - DONE
Leon - 10%
Jade - DONE
Lance - 5%
Treasa - 10%
Evelyn - 50%
Uzal - 0%
Oved - 0%
Vittorio - 0%
Arianna - 5%
Selese - 5%
Courtny - 0%
Extra Characters (4/6) - 0%

As you can tell, the art style is pretty inconsistent due to the huge time gaps on when I drew them. I'm considering redrawing Lila and Adonis' sprites entirely. Jade's original sprite was drawn on SAI so her facial lineart is thinner. I'm still deciding whether I want to give Evelyn long or short hair...and no, I don't have a thing for puffy sleeves LOL

"Tamed Tiger"
Mechanical Pencil

I'm still debating whether I want to make her an OC or not. I've always wanted to have a tiger as a pet but for obvious reasons, I can't. //cries

Also, I'm not going to lie but Samuel is my favourite love interest from Siren's Plea...but you didn't hear that from me! Haha!

Yay! Finally finished her concept art and sprites.
Jade Bloom will be appearing in the game as a supporting character.

She is a very feminine and animated Venetian noble who came with Princess Arianna as her spokesperson.
She has an obsession with beautiful men.

I'm working on a bunch of sprites and redrawing some of them so that I keep a consistent style. You don't see it much but I fixed Jade's face a bit.

Also I'm making the sprites into full bodies for later use. That means I will have to redraw Adonis' sprite later on. At this point I won't even finish the game because of my constant urges on fixing everything lol.

So yes, I'm not dead yet. I just have finals coming soon and yeah...

So I had a sudden spark of inspiration when I saw this image of a girl lying on water. I thought I could use it as a theme for the image maps I will be using for the in-choice menu. Unfortunately, I won't be able to explain further about this idea since I want it to be a surprise until the demo is released. I might have to hire a coder for the game since I'm having such a hard time with working on Ren'py. Anne is already kind enough to help me work on the main menu and GUI so I don't want to bother her anymore than that.

I'm also thinking of redrawing Adonis' sprite because I feel like I've improved on drawing. I might have to do the same with Lila's just to keep the art pretty consistent. Once everything is handled, I'll be focusing on the story line. I have five months left to meet the deadline. With how busy I am in real life, I don't think I will have enough time. (ノ`Д´)ノ

I feel my hand throbbing in pain again. Ugh. That's it for the day.
