Yeah, for the longest time the 250x250 style hasn't allowed much of that. But slowly it's something I'm working my way into, and the shrinking does help because more has to be shown in order to establish the tinyness.
And yeah, buildings, gawd. Not until I did that Vladic and Burgundy shopping storyline did I realize how freaking hard cities are, damn you being so good at them Bean. How many times must I read you Perspective book before I understand!?
Can't wait until I hit some of this stuff in Art classes.
Speaking of buildings another thing that bugs me, the Apartment. Worst apartment design ever. For a long time I have planned on redesigning it, and I finally have a basic idea for one. Now I just gotta stop being sick so I can start practicing it. Vladic was supposed to be my tool for the new design, that was the point of him having the laptop, designing the apartment.
Course now I realized he never mentioned that was what the laptop was for after saying that, but I bet it's totally what he was doing. And I have decided that is why the laptop broke, apartment putting up a fit. Anyway, I think I might post some sketches on the forums when I start, since like, 5 readers post here. Sometimes.
When is the official makeover to take place? Well EE time-wise, only a matter of days. Storyline-wise, about three storylines ahead of this one. But, REAL time? So not happening this year unfortunately. Since I'm making it a storypoint, I can't just go making drastic changes without reason in the background, and I had to fit in between pre-written storylines where it'd flow best. So for now, everyone has to put up with that god awful blue-yellow colour scheme of death. And yes, everyone's apartments will get makeovers too though mostly just for the sake of the colours. I don't know why the apartment has such a lust for Easter themes. People have mentioned before it being visually distasteful, all the bright colours, and for the longest time I was all "Bah! I love bright colours, Rainbow Bright lead the way!" But you know, things happen and braincells develop. Which is how I tend to work allot with input. Somebody goes "hey, maybe it'd be better if you did it this way", or "wouldn't it be good if this happened?" and I'll be all "NO! You break the boundaries! That is now how it's always been! It couldn't possibly work!" Ten minutes later I realize I haven't stopped thinking about it and go "damn, why they always right?" And then I kick a penguin and get on with it. Ok so maybe I am still recovering from being sick and my brain is going off in strange directions. Man this post is long. Who the hell will read this stuff?
On a completely unrelated note, since I am on such a role here and it doesn't matter if I post here or on a journal very few people read this stuff either way, UF has still been active in my mind to assure fans. I hope to be able to start getting more solid scripts and sketches and designs and stuff out sometime next year, and may post them on the site. Randomly in bed this morning I decided Orrick needed allot more books in his room. In fact now his house will have have allot more books in general. If any of you read or watch the Read or Die series you'll know my influence.
Also, Nightmare Before Christmas back in theaters, whoo hoo! Please don't let me start up a fancomic!
