I love sharing the progress of Electric Noir with my friends. I was posting up a character design just the other day and one of my friends asked me a question: any insight into how many pixels characters should be? ...I get confused if I should do 20x20, 50x50 or whateverA good friend of mine … Continue reading Pixel art process
Jeesh, a lot has changed with EN since the last update. Just looking back at the .plan files I was writting and looking through my own journal entries since then... it's a lot to try to sum up here in just a few sentences. But I'll do my best. Basically, everything changed. Everything. A pivot … Continue reading Electric Noir .plan 10
