New Header

Trapper Zoid

137 views

New journal header is up. I've broken away from the Nintendo game mould this week. One quirk of this particular game choice is that I haven't actually played the seventh of the Final Fantasy series, but I thought Cloud was probably the most recognisable protagonist with that hair that could take someone's eye out. I really should make that RPG village management game, where to attract heroes you need to build the appropriate support buildings. Like hair salons.

I was running low on time again this week, and since the action pose I chose for Samus last week didn't really work I've just gone with a full character on the classic white background (another reason why I chose Final Fantasy). Now I've got four headers done it's probably time to ask for feedback and improvement tips over at the Visual Arts forum.

I'm also meaning to post an update on what I'm doing with Ice Slider, the game I'm meant to be working on. I got sidetracked a bit during the week with other things; since I've been heavily programming a lot during the day for research purposes I just didn't feel up to more programming in the evenings. I need to do a bit of a review and plan this weekend, then I'll post something up on my journal over at trazoi.net.

Hey Dave, those headers have been causing me great envy [smile] Any chance of seeing a 'big daddy' and 'little sister' composition for bioshock? I'd love to see what you'd come up with.

btw, how about a link to trazoi.net in your header? It'd make it much likelier for people browsing your journal to pop in and have a gander.

I'm not sure I should be inspiring envy [smile]. When compared to true vector artists like Salsa, or the amazing ability to draw machines that Prinz Eugn has, I feel like a total hack.

I haven't been keeping up with current games for ages, so to be honest I'm not sure who the main characters are in Bioshock - has it even been released (I'm out of touch on the latest news)? I'll consider it, but I'd be more likely to pick System Shock (1 or 2) since I've played one of them. and I've got a copy of the second game in my big CD folder for reference material. Except I can't think of a good way to bend the name to include "Trapper" or "Zoid" [grin].

Good point; I'll stick something up there. I'm a bit behind in porting things across.

...and the thing about Final Fantasy VII is that, since the Internet just won't shut up about it, there's very little surprises for me if I were to play the game. I know what happens to Aeris. Hell, I know what happens to Cait Sith. I know about the Golden Saucer, the Chocobo breeding, and One Winged Angel.

But I should play it anyway.

I really like these header images you've been drawing. This one is my favorite, although I'm not a big fan of Final Fantasy VII(V and VI are better!)

Draw Megaman next!
