merci la vie! art/doodle
029 (1)soooo I've been toying around.. minicarta.gif

..with my dollmaker ideas!! I don't think there are quite enough pixel webdoll makers that are animesque gif5.gif gaiaonline and otaku avatar maker are the two that come to mind.. many modern-day makers like everskies are amazing, but with a majority realistic-leaning faces (which are beautiful, but lesser my taste and I'm always digging for user-made anime ones instead xP). 

candybar and neowiz are great examples of what I envision (that're unfortunately getting more lost to time).. >_< that being said, I've made a guideline of what I find valuable in them from example! 173.gif173.gif

most importantly: it's cute bullet_heartflash.gif

now that I have a pretty confident idea of the approach I'd like for the base, I'm still studying the type of site format I'd like to do ^ 3 ^ 

I think these kinds of layouts follows design principals nicely, making both the categories easily accessible at the top and displaying enough items per page so it doesn't feel like a slog to go through them all. criez.gif

as an aside this gal's channel is so cool LOL luv that they play stuff like houchou shoujo gensoukyoku randomly

just for fun and because it's relevant, I thought it'd be neat to share a very casual pitch I made for my friend a few years ago *_* she develops ai filters on instagram; it's something purely for fun but if you ever see it float around somewhere someday, here's some initial concepts LOL tumblr_lkl6570jn71qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl6570jn71qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl6570jn71qfamg6.gif

something very important to me is to make things as customizable as possible within reason.. I think palette swapping is such a convenient and fast way to mix things up considering how quickly programs allow you to do it nowadays!! in the above example, skintone has no excuse to be limited by anything but space or effort restrictions tumblr_lkl6d5i9qD1qfamg6.png

basically u make a pixel doll based on yourself via the filter.. it's amazing how interactive they are these days o.O

websites with HTML-customizable areas to display various widgets like pixels are few and far between nowadays, but I still think there is something I like about people creating what they want and saving it into their image rolls forever! I still have my old ones from 2007 in my photobucket.. mini002.gifmini002.gif

these are all old AWOLnow friends LOL I made dolls based on them.. yes even Ichigo (only 4 ppl will.. understand.. >_> u know who u are)

and who knows.. maybe someday websites will let its users have some visual fun again and let them customize more freely (ie. myspace, tumblr profiles, forum signatures). :-D that's something I sure can look forward to!! gif5.gifmini051.gif

one of my resolutions this year is to resume planning personal projects *_* I decided my blog would be a good idea to share initial plans without feeling like a spectacle LOL tumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl64v9iji1qfamg6.pngtumblr_lkl65c58Ps1qfamg6540.gif

no promises but this IS indeed the year I'd like to make progress on these roadmaps....... I have so little time lately on top of commercial projects BUT I want to try to MAKE time !!

that being said let me break things down a little.. tumblr_ll7xq8CAsh1qi6qow540.giftumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.gif

PROJECT GLIM&GLAM laco.gifmini012.giflaco.gifmini012.giflaco.gifmini012.giflaco.gif


a web-based dressup/avatar game!! I've been studying the likes of existing dollmaker codes online and feel a bit more equipped to know where to start :-D it's gonna take a LOT of trial and error, especially considering web/mobile compatibility.. glim & glam are actually from another project of mine "Salon Glim & Glam" centric around my reaper child Ginnie.. anyway the sister duo will be serving as mascots for this project :-D they are deceased in my other project (k I know it sounds really grim but ITS NOT THAT DEEP or relevant here)-- that being said these are their "living" forms before they passed away!

hmmm (3)

currently I'm trying to develop a cute but cohesive UI based on some childhood inspirations of mine..

how to hit the perfect balance of cute and functional.. these sites did it well imo ^p^ mini051.gifmini051.gifmini051.gif

the standard of web design has gotten a lot more uninteresting in pursuit of a "standardized" look, so I'm trying to find ways to undo the strictness and make something fun!!! minidog.gif

NIBIRU LANDING tumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.giftumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.gif

after figuring out the general gist of this game, I'm finally starting to figure out a graphical style I'd like to go for!! I'm very keen on having default, nicely animated pixel sprites (wips below) in an environment that is psuedo 2D-3D..

essentially, I would like a 3D plane to move on, with 2D assets for the environment :-D hoshi de hakken!! tamagotchi for ps1 demonstrates it perfectly (and I'm sure by extension, paper mario LOL but I prefer the stricter camera of the latter)

just observe how mikachu moves and the world around her passes her by!!

if the poster looks familiar I was just mashing roommania into this mockup LOLZ

I'm not sure if I've ever noted a summary behind these characters, but they are basically a weird little family LOL; you control carefree rhaz (the child), you have an angry tech-obsessed older sister named nero, and ma & pa are busy scientist/engineer parents who try their best, but fall short a lot. she becomes best friends with an alien kiddo and works together to collect trash for her parent's current project, while hiding their identity.

it's something personal to my experiences and isn't meant to be serious !! I'm drawing a lot of inspiration from moon rpg's strange but charming dialogue, as well as hamtaro game's lighthearted dialogue ^o^ tumblr_9f64623492c6caaeb4e6bf821c2ce2b1_6a1355b1_75.gif

speaking of hamtaro.. I replayed heartbreak !! I haven't had much free time to animate for myself, but here's a wip!

speaking of ocean, SMFJ also was made in 2007.. the story is, Ichigo found him at the sea  16.gif he was inspired by mesousa from pani poni dash!

mesousa for reference--
dunno why I read this face as "manly" as a kid LMAOO

mmmhmmmmm >:-)

last thing; a HUGE inspiration for my "journal" format is this pixel art here!! I wish I can find the source >_<


BIG wip dump

uhhh I am going to look like a lil freak exposing how much I like sketching out new ideas, particularly animations Kfdskjfdsjk- I tend to hop around a lot ^Q^;; the cool thing is I rarely get a chance to post my pixel art at it's ACTUAL scale hellokittylove.gifhellokittylove.gif so here goes nothing!

woof.gif I've mostly been focusing on oc stuff lately, so I'll start with that: 
I designed some mascots for my updated site! ^o^ I have more to share about them, but I'll do that in a later post.. they aren't really serious ocs LOL they just exist to look cute

luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif

this is maybe one of my newest oc artworks!! I decided to name this project Nibiru Landing.. my scientist family is meant to have a bold, bright palette :-D

luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif

top is a gift for my friend rooby, bottom is a WIP of my sled doggy Kikky with her lil sister (designed by rooby)

luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif


ummm both of these are actually pretty old WIPS (2021) X^D I have a very "completionist" mentality with my art so it's hard to move past "scrapped" things.. so I WILL finish

I updated Glim's hair to be longer but I kinda like the idea of her just having hair extensions since she's a salon owner anyway?? WRITE THAT DOWN WRITE THAT DOWN-

luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif

THIS AGAIN? ya I am taking forever to finish this but I also need to finish it to launch with my updated portfolio site... *Cries* .. I like how SMFJ is looking in this, stupid and squishy

luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif luv.gif

OK now we'll dive into some fanart I've sketched up lately.. mostly game stuff since I'm a gamer

far left is my newest WIP; I finished Haunting Ground literally 2 days ago and the need to draw my girl Fiona and her baby Hewie is too strong.. (gonna sneak Daniella in here too cus she's a horrifyingly good horror villain).. 

middle is MOON RPG, which I still need to finish after getting really busy again!! I LOVE this game.. these are my favorite characters who have the best music (which you should experience in-game, but I'll link anyway);

and lastly uhh mayura is just there LMFAO I sketched her on impulse so idk if I'll finish

prioritizing what to finish for me is always a russian roulette LOLOL.. I will always try to avoid timestamping my stuff! ofc though it leads to a pretty big backlog criez.gifcriez.gif O WELL.. it's just the christy way *wink*

I had to take a long break to catch up on work after vacation and being sick, so back to it! hellokittylove.gif
