It’s been a while… hasn’t it?
The only good thing I can say about my modding, is that I’ve never given up!
I was trying my hand at another Curly Brace portrait today…
Bottom-right is the official Curly Brace.
Top-right is my previous attempt at Curly Brace.
Top-left is my new current rough Curly Brace look.
It needs to be fixed back up, so it looks like the original with all it’s crisp clarity.
…What do you think? (Click on it to see it enlarged)
Bottom-left was a byproduct of creating the new Curly. I made a few minor modifications and suddenly I made myself a new Killer Robot!
I’ll probably only use one of the new portraits portraits though.
Oh and here’s the process to creating Curly (from right to left lol) :
…So, what have I been up to?
I worked on some other projects and tried my hand at taking somebody’s midi and just customizing it (It’s more work then you might think!) :
My goal at the time was to be able to remix songs, but I haven’t gotten around to attempting that yet.
And important to Cloud Story, I need to try my hand at creating all new songs. Do I even have any talent? I guess we’ll see.
At least, I currently have a somewhat decent handle on how to finalize songs.
Other than that, I spent a lot of time playing some new games.
Games that were 100-300 hours long… NOT SHORT GAMES!
They were great food for thought though, and a lot of fun. (The Way, YU-NO, among others)
Also the anime Baccano!, and Kara no Kyoukai was very good…
I have SO many more games and anime to catch up on…
BUT BACK to Cloud Story.
I’m pretty sure I’m going to end up using a custom Cave Story engine in the end (probably NXengine), since I just don’t see how I can really do what I want; without becoming Noxid and GiR’s apprentice for a long time lol
However, for now I will stick with the Cave Story engine as long as I can.
I don’t need to try that advanced stuff, until, I get a basic GAME made.
By this time I had hoped to have a demo ready, but I’m a very unmotivated individual. The mood of the day is my driving force… and I must surpass this if Cloud Story is to meet frutition.
Oh, and lastly I gave the blog a slightly different look with my return to Cave Story modding~ Hopefully it isn’t difficult to read?
