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!
nocturnal YL: I have a tendency to dislike a game because it's popular, or at least, I give popular games a harsher, more critical look.

Nester the Lark: ^ I think I do something similar in that I tend to favor less popular things. It's not something I do intentionally or even consciously; I think it's just part of my personality.

nocturnal YL: Official pairings in games sometimes surprise me. Like <spoiler> in BLUE REFLECTION 2. Or Astrid and Makalov in Fire Emblem 10 which is less shocking but still unexpected. For a non-romantic example, Meta Knight and Dedede in KF2 work so well together.

nocturnal YL: BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light is a… shocking experience. I'm at the start of Chapter 9 (so 3 more to go), and considering the side quests and maxing out character Talent Points, I'm about 70% done.

nocturnal YL: I'll say this: I'm glad it's not a popular game. I don't need to worry about spoilers. Is it worth playing? Yes for story, no for other elements. An overall huge yes for me, because I really like the story so far.

nocturnal YL: Almost anything I can say is spoiler, and I really think it's best to jump into it blind, not even reading the official website. I'll probably write a review on it, so stay tuned.

nocturnal YL: I was done with BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light… two days ago, actually. It's quite difficult to put my thoughts in words, but at the same time, it's similar to what others would say about the game.

nocturnal YL: My old computer died, on the same day I got my new one. The timing isn't exactly a coincidence, as it started showing symptoms a long time ago. I got very lucky that I did my backup and bought the new PC today. (Game review about 1/3 done, by the way)
Apr 24, 2022 15:10:51 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Now I'm not sure if I should post the review as is. I basically typed out the whole story, but that's exactly what I don't want potential players to read.
Apr 25, 2022 10:39:45 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Writing too little would make it difficult to appreciate why is the story good, but writing everything out would defeat the point. Umm…
Apr 25, 2022 10:40:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: And it's done! I decided to cut most of the story and only leave in a few examples. The cut part is even longer than the full review, but if anyone wants to know the story they should play the actual game or at least watch videos of it.

Nester the Lark: I like that we keep posting cameos, even though Fry has no intention of ever updating the site again. But I guess the forum is still an archive.

Shrikeswind: Looks like it's been a minute since TV Eye's been here, so I'll go post that in the thread as well. It looks like he made it to around the halfway mark, but now it's been 4 years.

Shrikeswind: I was thinking about it because the thumbnail for JRose11's Red/Blue Dugtrio-only run reminded me of Hidden Depths' Dugtrio.

nocturnal YL: Finally starting to see some good equipment made out of my post-game item optimisation in Atelier Sophie 2. I don't plan to write a review now as I don't feel a burning need to unlike BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light; I'll wait until my next game's done.
