Today and yesterday I worked on redrawing the sprites for the billionth time. I did Cherri and Devlin, next is probably Seth.
One sprite a day isn’t so bad. I already have the steps down.
Do the lineart for the body, do the lineart for the eyes, brows, mouths, color the lineart, save each piece, code them all together in different expressions, test them out, tweak, do a test scene, realise you don’t have nearly enough expressions (damn humans and their wide array of expressions), redraw or recombine parts as needed, crash on bed and sleep. Yep… I have it down to an art.
Yesterday I was testing Cherri. I gave her some basic expressions: sad, happy, smiling, angry etc. All was well so I decided to do a scene. Turns out I needed: annoyed, disappointed, guilty and mischievous… Damn humans… Next time I’ll do a VN about robots.
