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: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
