Cinders: making-of

This making-of was originally divided into a few posts, but I decided to merge them into one, for better reading experience. Warning! Lots of pictures inside ;)

Repaints

Periodically updated post with comparisons of repainted pictures. Usually oldies that some client wanted, and I cringed my teeth looking at it, so went ahead and touched it up :). I like repainting oldies, it’s a perfect excuse to touch up the pieces I like, but got really old already. Also – it’s a nice exercise and allows me to see the progress I made. Although I’m never really satisfied even with my most recent things (I guess it’s a healthy attitude, though).

Cinders is out!

Our first game as MoaCube is out! This is a very important première for us. It’s just the beginning, the first project of (hopefully) many more to come. Everything depends, of course, on the players. I won’t lie – this is a big risk for us. We have great ideas and potential, but surviving out there as an indie team, without external funding, is challenging. Before MoaCube, we worked for other gaming companies, but we decided to start our own thing. That way we can create smaller, but very polished products, that we can sign as ours and be proud of them, responsible for every single detail. Last year we were basically living only on our savings (and some commissions in my case) and it was quite stressful. But I think we finally managed to make the game we wanted. I’d like to tell you why many players should find Cinders fun – from my point of view. I don’t want to promote it shamelessly, just explain why we wanted our first game to be a visual novel, and why it’s a bit different from many other out there. But first.. some screenshots!

The Cat taking over the Flat!

I had this ambition to make blog entries here regular. I really suck at updating anything on the Internet, so I’m trying to make this one place active at least, but well, I fail. A lot was happening though. For example I just moved to a new flat at the end of April. Which rocks (the flat, not the month). I found out I really enjoy designing and decorating it. On a small surface (40m sq., 1 tiny bedroom, 1 living room connected with the kitchen and a small corner with my desk, 1 bathroom) I managed to make bits of it in sort of Japanese style (the bathroom), and some with modern Polish folk bits, which I like a lot. But all of that doesn’t matter much, because the best looking bit of it is the Cat anyway ;)

Take a look at the photos! I rarely share something this personal, because it feels weird for some reason, but I’m just really happy how it looks :) Some bits are still unfinished (like we don’t have a wardrobe, just plastic bags for clothes, and no shelves), waiting for the time when I have less work and can focus on it again.

As a bonus – Lola conquering my back and some food. I like making food.

d’artiste Fashion Design by Ballistic Publishing is out now! It features great tutorials by 3 awesome artists, my artwork (Rabbit Heart) is in the Invited Artists Gallery in the Loish’s section. I just got my copy and I really recommend it. One of the most inspiring artbooks I got since a long time, especially if you’re into general character design.

Here you can see all pages and order it. It’s also available on Amazon and in other bookstores.

Lola!

Lola joined us on 11th December 2011. She’s my first cat, already 4,5 years old, as we took her from friends who had to let her go because of their kid’s allergy. I gotta say her name suits her, she really is a cute, petite lady. And her nose! Sometimes I call her Loa, because of it :)
