I more or less just took a break from the blog for the month while I worked on stuff (And played some Dark Souls). However I'll always be responding to emails, especially given that it's a part of the job.
Anyhow, as for what I've been up to, here's the Curly Brace animation. I may make a few changes here and their, especially once a day has passed and I'm seeing it differently, but for now here it is.
The other thing that's been taking up my time is my attempt to redo Kurovadis's CGs, which are pretty awful, frankly. To give some examples. (click to view fullscreen)
Original / Redo
However, some of the CGs are sort of beyond saving through minor fixes, and so I decided to do them from scratch. (And I may do the others from scratch since some of them are just kind of boring.)
Also keep in mind that the difference in size is because the the new ones are the same resolution of the game, whereas the old ones weren't.
Anyhow, that's what I've been up to. I'm not dead. I want to finish redoing the CGs so I can stop feeling embarrassed over the old ones. As it is I'd rather there were none at all, instead of what's there.
Other than that, I've got a bunch of stuff I've gotta do this month. I'm back to reading and responding to comments, so feel free to vent all your belated frustrations now.
