I took a trip to Germany , more precisely the city of Brühl to visit the Tim Burton Exhibition… and it was faaaaantastic! 🙂
It was really nice to see the artworks of Tim Burton up close and the various sculptures, his influences and his early years… And I also bought a book while I was there. The Art of Tim Buron, with over 1000 illustrations, many of them are foldout pages… Its friggin awesome! 😀
Here’s what I drew today. Heavily inspired by horror films like the Exorcist and vampire movies.. I call it “The Monster in the Doorway” … but after I drew it, I started to think about a phrase that I think is fitting for this image…
“Light reveals what lurks beneath the surface of the dark waters…”
So yeah, I didnt get as much practice done during those days, and the days following the trip… But I am back and I am practicing my Adobe Illustrator skills again! 🙂
here’s another one … also have a few ideas for some spritesheets coming up.
I’m going to cut to the chase… Oh, and hello again 😉
First update, showing my progress with illustrator… the plan is to do a minimum of 3 updates pr week, showing my daily practice session with Adobe Illustrator.
So here’s my first day 🙂
Rise my minion! *Tastygraph casts a resurrection spell on this blog*
it has been ages…
years in fact…
and for that I apologize (Lets face it, its not like you were holding your breath, waiting for a new update… if so… then… yikes, I hope this resurrection spell affects you too then, my poor zombie friend 😉 )
So what does a Tastygraph do in about 4 years?
We’ll I’ve worked hard at becomming better at programming.
I’ve practiced my 2d drawing skills and managed to save up money for a Wacom Cintiq13HD drawing tablet, bought a spanking new supercomputer and a whole bunch of other things(tm)…
Been promoted at work to now be a part time school teacher as well, so I am in charge of planning and teaching the computer science classes for the 5th graders (the only grade that is taught computer science at this school)
I’ve managed to release a few games on my Kongregate Page and I have also started livestreaming my game development sessions which you’ll be able to watch on my Twitch Channel (its like a television program where you watch whats happening on my screen while im explaining what I am doing 🙂 )
And lastly I have also been posting updates to the Tastygraph Game Development group over on facebook 🙂
oh… and as a little visual proof of concept, so you can see that I havent been completely slacking off! Here’s a video of what my super mario / meatboy and zelda2 inspired 2d platformer currently looks like 🙂 (This is after 2 months of work)
