I block in the colour (super fast) then shade with 40% transparency in layers, so colouring is quite quick. Compared to inking with the tablet, which is sloooow, but looks quite nice. I'm still learning to shade properly. It's all new to me!

I don't remember trees in the Mappy ga- oh god MAPPY LOOK OUT
Still super cool these are. Also I just read about your Momo shenanigans, that really really sucks. It's also the reason why I'm a paranoid asshole and make like a billion 'beta' copies of everything I do
It was a nightmare of a weekend! My plan to finish at least two more was scuppered entirely!
For those who only follow here (are there any of you?), I drew Wonder Momo, I finished Wonder Momo. I drew a background which was rather nice. I hit save and got the blue screen of death!!!. My laptop has been struggling a bit lately, but this was a new symptom in its slow decline.
Anyway, a quick restart and it hadn't saved my last changes (the background). A pain, but not the end of the world. I drew the background again, saved it again, seemed to work... but no! Another sudden restart, and the discovery that this time the layers had been corrupted and strange colour banding had appeared across it!
So, with a frustrated sigh, I decided to manually restart and see if I could recover any more of the file before trying to fix it up. Nope! This time Windows decided to wipe the whole file! Everything I'd done! All sketches, inking, colours & shading, the background, everything! Hours of work deleted because I had the gall to try and save it!
Suffice to say, my frustration level was FUCKFUCKFUCKITYFUCK!
But never mind, because later that day (yesterday) I went and upgraded. To a shiny iMac! Before I can continue I need to sort out my software and hardware. There's also a risk that my TV card will work on the Mac, which means you might have to suffer some YouTube videos from me. Mwahaha!
But yes, there's a slight delay before I can continue, and annoyingly I am away this weekend so I can't dedicate as much time to it as I'd like to. But we'll see!
Momo is coming, and hopefully will be even better the third time round!
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
