Game Project WIP

Something a little different for this blog post!
Ive been messing around with RPG Maker VX Ace for a while now and decided to start making something a while ago after i brainstormed some ideas and concepts.

I initially went with something quite complicated that snowballed out of control... so i scrapped that project and went with something i thought was much more simple and managable.

Even though i went with something simple again it has still developed into something a little more complex along with more detailed artwork.... but meh! i want to make it look simple but nice!

Here is an initial concept i drew up... not actually for anything, more just to get an idea of how i could use pixel blocks and just duplicate them to make an environment quickly and efficiently! :)
I  then starting blocking out some area of the game.
After this step i then began to work out how i wanted the world to look... this is where i got carried away but i guess it sets the visual level straight away for the rest of the game to aim towards. There still things i want to do but that could all be done on a final sweep.

Here's two screenshots of what i have worked on so far.

New painting in the works! (WIP)

Working on an environment piece, i plan to actually polish this one up and get it finished! its all good doing studies and sketches but now and then i think you need to actually put some time in and see what you've actually learnt while doing those studies! a good way to see some progression in your own work.

Sketch... been a while!

Been a while since Ive found any time to do anything! kind of depressing, forcing myself to make some time though, so here's a quick doodle to get things going!
