Okay so, I do too many things, and have so much going on. No more listing them here. I do everything art related. Pretty much literally everything. If I haven't yet, I will at some point. That's what I do. I want to make a living off of this, but we'll see how that goes.

I also love YouTube. Too much.


List of things in life include: All the art, all the animals. Always. I'm also making a game!


I love horror, videogames, music, art, animals, weird and freaky things real or not and pretty much everything that makes other people turn their head sideways in confusion.

*******************************************************************

A little of the personal aspect of what's up.  Scroll down for the actual game talk.

I've been trying to plan out ways to move or build / secure areas for work on my games and other art and it's really coming down to the wire financially.  After further inspection of the shed (my current workspace) there's not going to be any easy or cheap way to insulate and install AC, which wouldn't be an issue if I wasn't trying to move (which would make those efforts and the money involved wasted).  I really don't want to try to set up any kind of crowd funding method until I have more to go on, despite the push for it.  May take longer than I was hoping to simply set up for the first game to get into development past concept art, storyboards, etc.  I still have a lot to do, so it's not too bad, but the workspace is also for other work as well.  For instance, I can't make sculptures because the kids will get into them indoors, but the shed isn't insulated or cooled so they would bake before completion :c


More game talk from here on out :D

For now, I'm working on storyboarding and scripts mainly, as well as sketches to help get ideas started.  Once I get farther on, more in depth concept art will come around (colored, landscapes, full scenes, that kind of thing).


I'm also still working on the Mute Whispers Pixel RPG, and area one is just about done.  Everything is set, scripts are done (for area 1), I just have to finish my custom art to replace the more generic work that comes with the software (that I'm using as a placeholder).  Once area 1 and the 1st dungeon are done, I will be releasing the demo for free and starting a kickstarter or gofundme for which will help me hire people to work on the music.  I'm also going to use the money earned (if I get more than enough to pay music artists) to potentially hire someone to help create some of the pixel work for the creatures, people, monsters, and landscapes.  While the battle art will need to be created by me to stay consistent, I think pixels have more leniency in that respect.

If I can afford to hire someone to help with the art production, it'll cut the time of production significantly! c:


After Mute Whispers is complete, I'm hoping at that point I will be able to start actual production on the Shontovia series.  I'm thinking of making it a saga that followers Carman through her story from beginning to end.  The first game would start with her as a child, and I'm unsure where it would end.  All I know is I want it to be somewhat of an open world, and while story driven, would encourage exploration.  The main objectives would have to be completed in order, and certain areas would not unlock until the story progresses (especially in the beginning), but the farther you got, the more you would be encouraged to revisit old areas.

This is highly experimental thinking and I have a lot to piece together.  I have no idea where to even start.  Just wish me luck, and if you have advice, I'm listening!
