Also, Game projects!
I thought it might give me even more motivation to work on my list of commissions if I posted it online again like I did with my requests earlier, so everyone can see it and silently judge me if I take too long! If you're curious, you'll be able to find it on the bottom of the journal! SECOND LIFE
As you might be able to see in the list, there are some entries regarding Second Life. The story behind that is pretty simple.
A few months ago, I started checking out SL for the first time in many years (I gave it a go when I was about 15, even posted some screens on here, but quicklyl ost interest) after Maxine suggested I try it out. At first I wasn't exactly thrilled for it, but I quickly discovered the intriguing aspects behind it, namely: The ability to customize your character, literally however you want. There are hundrets of thousands if not even millions of different bodies, faces, hairs, clothing to choose from - all user-made, mind you - and if you don't find something that appeals to you, just get onto any 3D modeling program and you can make something completely new. Now I'm not gonna cover all of my SL adventures on here, so I'll just cut to the point:
Eventually I was able to rent myself some land with the money I earned through smaller deals and was able to open up a virtual photo studio in SecondLife, and while it's still small, it attracts customers, and I'm able to cover all my virtual expenses with the earned money and even have some left, which I find pretty handy. The stuff I'm doing in the studio are usually photo sessions followed by digital photomanipulation to make the images more appealing. I find that pretty fun, even.
Now, I'm most likely not gonna upload any of those pictures on here since I'm not sure how the dA regulations for SL-stuff is. Since I didn't create the avatars I take pictures of but only make them look about twice as good, I'm not sure if the content of the pictures would be original enough to upload.TUMBLR BLOG
I WILL post some pictures on my new tumblr blog --> manfox.tumblr.com/ <--
, which I'll update regularly with all kinds of things to clean my personal business off dA and keep any of that stuff to my blog. The journals on here should be for anything art-related, and to be honest, I feel kind of ashamed about having posted so much personal stuff on here where it shouldn't belong.
Some of you might realize that this blog has been going for almost a year now, with only two posts being there before its sudden "revival". I don't know why, but apparently I set it up earlier already because I planned on moving my shit over already. Anyways, that's where I'll be posting any WIPs, SL Photography and anything that isn't directly Art-related. I'll also be posting Game reviews
of games I recently played once in a while and maybe a few "my thoughts on..."-posts whenever I feel like it, most likely video-game related, soo all you gamers out there might find it interesting!
New post featuring some of my SL-works will be coming soon, btw. Feel free to check it out and follow my blog if you like!
That being said, I'll just mark this journal as the start of me migrating all my personal shit over to tumblr.
Last but not least:GAME PROJECTS
I'm currently also part of two teams working on new games, and I'd like to use this opportunity to make al ittle advertisement for the projects here, all else can be found on my Tumblr manfox.tumblr.com/Terra Animae
being the first one, is a Text-based RPG with lots of ambitions on becoming something more than most of the flash-based mini-RPGs you can find floating around the internet. The game will be programmed using Ruby rather than Flash, which opens up a lot more and new possibilities for us compared to ActionScript. The game will feature a very detailed character-creation, multiple possibilites to solve every task, a unique, very interesting story (and yes, that's really my opinion, I like the script so far even though I haven't been involved in it yet) and will later even enable users to write their own stories and NPCs and add them to the game, think of it as mods. Some of these will eventually be taken into the vanilla game if we like them enough. We're currently a team of 4 people and relatively close to our first test-release.
I'll be in charge of designing the User Interface, making it pleasant to look at and functional at the same time. I'll also make custom digital paintings of several places and characters to be displayed while you're interacting with them. I'll also have a word in the story and content in general, will take charge of at least one quest branch, likely more, and take part on the design of characters, places, sidequests and story segments.If you like how this sounds, check out our Tumblr blog for the game --> terra-animae.tumblr.com/ , follow it if you want to keep up with development. I'll ocassionally make some posts there, as well.SnoBalls (working title)
will be a strategy game released on the Android market which is based on some jokes and concepts my good friend Jonas and me came up with in school. The project is still very early in the works, a phase where we're still concentrating on the most basic concepts, but I'll eventually make a blog post about it once we've advanced a bit in the development.
The concept of the game will be around large-scale, tactical snowball fights utilizing all sorts of snow-warfare machinery like catapults or air support (probably birds), huge forts and epic, yet humorous clashes between opposing factions.Any news about this one will be posted on my own tumblr for now --> manfox.tumblr.com/
I'll most likely post some concept art on here of both projects once in a while as well as on the Terra animae devblog terra-animae.tumblr.com/
and my own (I think I've posted enough links of that already
