WAtheAnum's News

Posted by WAtheAnum - 6 days ago


This journal is more for the "game designer" people out there.


So ok. since some days, im activly working on my next game and pretty much created nearly everything "important" for my next game i work on.


But than i slamed into a wall...


The problem is, I like creating things and sure have ideas and stuff - if you look on FA, i wrote down a journal with the list of ideas i had for the game and pretty much worked on the game so far, point for point and still see what i need to work on before i can work on something else in a row.


And here is the problem:

Basicly, the "base" of the game is pretty much done. I made the title screen look nice, got the music so for right in place, the gameplay is working great and enemys n objects respont the way they should.


The stuff as for my game which is missing are as followed:


- The said "Shop" system which will be another day of work for me.

- IF the shop system works, a working "savefile" which links all progress together - but as for that the shop HAS to be done first of course.

- Actual Bosses...


And thats there i kinda hang in the ropes: Bosses.

Im not well with designing bosses and never was a guy who was like "and now we design super pixel art for a boss" or like. I like it simple and so far all my games had not such "intense" moment which would go on or lead to a actual "highlight" like a boss.

I have no idea what i should create as boss nor how they could look or work.

As for "HOW BIG" they could be, size wise at least i can say a boss should have the max pixel size of 128 x 160, at least. But again, i have no idea how i should make one now have the "skills" to make a boss look...well..."BOSS LIKE". I was never good with pixel art and since it would be even ONE color (yellow), it makes it even a bit harder for me.


So maybe there is some game designer out there which can share an advice about that or maybe even someone who could help me out (after we talked about what ideas i have or show them some screens from the WIP i made so far or like).


I mean, everything else left like the said shop and creating a file seems to be easy for me even if it is really complex work but thats something which seems to be easier for me than actually creating a boss or boss sprite even. So its hard to say when the next game of me will be done if i dont get ideas for this "boss problem" soon...

As you might could have guessed in my latest, "real journal", which is already a bit older (im talking about this one: https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/9594112/ ), my mood in the last days, weeks, months went pretty muchon a downhill drive. like....a hard one.


We already have past half september and if you look on "how much" i have done, its kinda nothing compared to maybe other months.


Artwise, its kinda dead. I have some ideas, yes, but i dont know how or why i even should draw them. I have even here a picture i work "RIGHT NOW" on it JUST to "finally finish it" but if im REALLY in the mood is another story, really.

I dont wanna "force" myself to draw coz forced art ends up bad anyway and makes it look worse than it should or could be. I really might have to take a HARD BREAK from my art till i feel better somewhat somehow.


But than its not only artwise. My mood right now is really like in the basement. I wanted to create a game as for the one sample - made a trailer and nothing else.

I mean, i even collected IDEAS and posted them in a journal but im really like "meh, why should i even try" right now.


Srsly, right now, all i mostly do is i play some games on steam, IF i even have the mood right now, and thats it. I dont feel in the mood for drawing, playing, creating games, ANYTHING right now.


So yea, i might sound odd if i say it here but

i might really have to take a hard break just for my own good from literally anything im doing somehow somewhat.


Sure, now you can say "oh but you created a furiotic movie this month!" (for people on Newgrounds: I didnt posted it there so you have to go there to see what im talking about and have an account there coz its in the ADULT settings: https://www.furaffinity.net/view/38238354/ )

Well yea....But even Faly noticed that something was "off" with me. Normaly, wile we do "those", we had fun (NOT in the obvious way you might think.) and made jokes WILE we record those or even fool around sometimes (trust me, if we ever would create a "behind the screen" video, it would be longer than the normal video).

But this time?

I was more like "ok lets get it over with" for the most part. Sure i had some fun working on it but it was like a "meh, what ever" mood for me.


So yea...i dont if someone is willing to help me somehow or has an idea how i could change the situation (if you keep the said other journal maybe in mind) but i feel like right now im some how very unmotivated. I dont think its not even like im "lazy", i really WANT to work on the game as one sample - its just like why should i even go for it, you know?

Ok im being honest here. I often try to avoid themes like politics or stuff like "those" coz everyone might has a different opinion about it. You mostly cant change said opinion and it ends up in a duel of fates and a lot internet drama and fights noone WANTS nor needs.


But here, today, i have to say and ask myself and you guys, stupidity seems like to come with the masses, right?

Im srs here, and i try to keep it short but...

Here in germany, people go out on the street and demonstrate AGAINST the "so hard covid-19 poltics" here. They go out on the streets of berlin and demonstrate in MASSES with either some or no masks on, not taking care about the people around them or even the CHILDREN.


SOME of those even say that said pandemic "doesnt happen" and "that its just a joke" or "they dont care".


So....said people which HAD the virus died coz of this joke? Is that this peoples logic?


I mean i dont wanna overreact here but if i hear people like this going on and demonstrate i really wish myself sometimes that i had a sniper rifle. Im srs here to say that i sure understand frustration - to a limit at least - but this is outright stupid. Srs here guys, dont be "those people" which think this virus is a "joke". Stay save, stay at home and dont even risk it or like. Im glad to say so far none of my family members got said virus but i sadly know some other people and friends which had members infected - some even died. So i think it would be stupid here to say, again, that they died coz of a "joke".


Covid-19 is -NOT- a joke.

Stay save everyone.

Maybe "SOMEONE" will notice that since a smaller wile ago i actually didnt draw anything. This has nothing to do with im working on stuff somewhere else or that i have an artblock - its more ...."worse".


Since some days i have an artistical "breakdown".

In other words, i doubt that it is worth drawing or keeping up the way i DO draw my stuff becourse of the lack of feedback and input im getting.


Let me explain:

First and formost, im not talking about fav numbers or viewer numbers. Im talking about INPUT. FEEDBACK, you know? To put the cards more "virsual" on the table:

If i draw my own characters and people which like them tell me its good thats nice but the viewer numbers are kinda low - so the fav numbers (again i dont talk about those but, keep them in mind for that moment). To maybe change that, i could work on my style so i thought or change "here and there" something maybe but over ALL the years of drawing, i dont know anymore

BECOURSE

As soon as i draw a simple picture of ANY known character in this fandom, all known logic for me is thrown out of the window becourse suddendly people like my style and artwork and all numbers rise.


This is my problem.

I dont know what i should do anymore nor if its worth doing what i AM doing.

My "style" cant be wrong if people enjoy it if i draw known characters.

My "characters" cant also be wrong becourse people also enjoy them.


And thats my problem. If i would see something like "this is missing somewhat" or somewhere a HOLE which i could fix, i sure would do it but right now, im not even sure anymore if i go privat and say fuq it i go and draw just for myself from now on - coz of the lack of feedback people are giving me.


Look,

Im not someone who enjoys to play god or change characters "all of a sudden". If you would look at my characters now and back in maybe 5 years, you will notice that the changes are very miror. Maybe i left W.A.s & Falys earrings by side or changed the "fluffyness" of their fur a bit, hairstyle, srsly more or less just smaller changes over the year. I thought it would be good to do so but again, i duno if that IS fine or not - this is of course just a sample but still.


Same with other things: I created at the end of last month a small video about the next project i wanted to work on - guess what, i created said video and stoped working on it coz im unsure about coz of the lack of feedback im getting. I have a LOT plans for the game, like really, i made a whole list - but since i got no good feedback about the stuff i did in the past or what people WOULD enjoy, i doubt its worth working on. I DONT say here i lay it on ice but i just dont really feel like working on it if im honest here - for who? just for me? I dont need to create a game "just" for me.


And thats the same with my art. I sure do it as hobby and i began with it as it is my hobby and my art i do it for me - and i still do - but it feels more and more like that i dont see really a good reason to see what i can do or change or what ever with never any good feed back over 15 YEARS of drawing.


Again, i dont complain about "i wanna get fame, i wanna get this, i wanna get that", what i just want is a honest opinion how people see or enjoy my stuff. "critique" if you wanna call it that way. feedback. I mean if i get no comments or just comments with "this is nice" or "hot" or what ever short-not-helpful-comment it doesnt help me nor other artists in the practical way.


Yes it is nice if you leave such comments but it doesnt give me feedback. is something wrong with my art? what do you wanna see? is the art wrong? is the character wrong? STUFF like that mate.


And...to be VERY honest here...


In the last days...i really thought about to finally throw the towel guys...


Posted by WAtheAnum - August 23rd, 2020


Ok tbh i duno WHY but it got deleted for me unknown reason. I readed the rules after the note i got but i didnt find anything WHICH was "against the rules" by uploading said picture - by sides, i already uploaded other, SIMILAR pictures but those are still online.


Never the less if you want to still download or check said collection out, go on one of my other accounts you can find here:


https://watheanum.carrd.co/


I dont waste my time to upload it again and might get a temp. bann for it for literally no reason at my end.

TBH, i think someone just reported it and was mad about or what ever. I dont rage myself up about it BUT its still a shame it got deleted with no really words said "WHY" and only a link to the guidelines of NG. I mean i can also bitchlap someone and say "JO READ THE RULES AND THAN YOU KNOW WHY" and the one doesnt even see a real reason IN this rules.


So yea, annnyyyyywaaaaaaays, if you wanna get it, i hope you have an account on the other pages coz its A-rated there as well and you can only get it/see it if you get an (free) account on one of the other pages there.

I leave you with this for the moment~


Posted by WAtheAnum - July 29th, 2020


Well just some more days and this month will also be over so it seems.


With that said, i need to remind me to upload Falys Special calendar picture in the next day - if i foget to do so, someone hit me up pls X3


Well as for august i have some ideas i actually wanna try out if i have the time for and if everything goes well.


AS FOR ART, this month i wanna try something which i wanna call "Cute Naughtys". No, its not a porn series or something. I got the idea from my older art "Fallout Fur" tbh and i wanna try to use a similar style, more "chibi" like and draw some sexual and/or erotic styled poses with my characters. Those might not be "super detailed" (im still thinking about if i use 2 laysers of shading or 1 like the Fallout Fur picture...) but i want to try something VERY cute and sexy in the same time. Imagen a poledancing tiny sexy Amanda as one sample. MAAAYBE i draw even a Furiotic in this style? Not sure but yea, if i go with art details for the next month, this might be the stuff i work over the next month...


WEELLLLLL NEXT to another project i try to work on IFFFFF i really have the time for...


Lately, my unmotivation and boredom hitted me h-a-r-d. I thought back about to create MAYBE a new game. Last game i created sadly went into limbo coz of the virus attack i had back in april. Since, i already got other ideas to work on for a new game.


I dont wanna go much into details but just some said here so you can maybe guess:

- It WILL be a sequal from one of my other games

- Its not a erotic or porn game

- Its not a fangame but one of my series i already have


Again said here, i dont promisse that i finish it or what ever - i just wanna try to work on something IF i have the time and motivation for - which i hope i will get for it "soonish".


ANOTHER bigger thing is that i really play with the opinions to actually LEAVE SOME OF MY ACCOUNTS.

Yes, you read it right.

DA as sample gives me more and more pain than grain. The latest design change pretty much doesnt only broke the community already, it pretty much broke the side.

- First, the birthday dates are not shown anymore

- a lot opinions doesnt work propper

- Adding art to a existing group of your OWN is a pain or doesnt work coz of actual MISSING BUTTONS AND OPINIONS

- Mixed up old and new design problems

- Still confusing rules which doesnt work out of even mods "give a dang" about


Im srs to say that, if i leave a page/account, i think DA would be the first - maybe right after sofurry.

"BUT WHY SOFURRY?" you might ask?

- My fav/view/comment numbers droped to nearly "unknown" status

- It seems like that a lot people i watched there went into limbo or already elsewhere anyways

- Sofurry seems like get the "just kink art for furrys" status. No srsly, i think me with my more "vanilla" art are getting slowly ignored there/feel at the wrong place


What about my other accounts? Lets see:

- FA seems to be my main or base account so far. I like the design and as long as they dont fuck it up, i think i sure will use it as normal

- As for IB, even if i dont get much numbers there, i still have people there which seem to enjoy my art there. Sure it has also some "odd kinks" here and there but i mostly upload my art there and dont look much around

- Newgrounds was normaly for me to upload my games which i still wanna go for as soon as i get my games (again) going. Artwise i duno, i think the "handful of people" which enjoy my stuff can still enjoy it? I mean i dont get really much FEEDBACK there or comments, votes OR LIKE (HINT HINT) but eh. As "page" its a nice one to enjoy actually

- Gamejolt is again something i sure stay and use just for my (bigger) games and nothing else


So yea i think the other accounts are save.


IF you might think now that i leave "this account" and wanna know where else you could find me, i could spam you with all my account links but to keep is short, just use my carrd and you see where you can find me, keeping stuff easy and simple:


https://watheanum.carrd.co/


Else, if you have ideas again, what i could draw or work on, leave a comment.

If people follow me, i drawn kinda a small beach series with all my female characters. Right now i had the idea i might draw now all of my MALE characters in this "series" as well but i had also something in mind what people would "really" like to see, which is a original character of course.


So this is kinda a voting which character you would like i should add. characters like Krystal, Renamon or others like lopunny, lola bunny, Minerva Mink or Okami.


The choise is yours If yu just vote for them ^^


Said here, i pref if its more "furry like" characters or maybe "human" ones and not to odd looking or "to much anime" like. AND said here, for sure, i sure didnt draw all characters which people might vote for or even the ones i counted up as sample already.


Still, i wanna give it a shot so leave a comment for your vote and maybe a sample picture of the character iffffff its more a rare one. ^^

Im srs to say, if you have about 1 1/2 hour time to spend on a Documentary, i would say watch this. Its really intressting if you want to learn abotu furry, are a furry or questioning all the furry stuff.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iv0QaTW3kEY


After i watched this myself i still dont really feel in touch with the fandom which exists NOWADAYS coz it seems like the older fandom was just way better. I was even so close to call myself "bruned furry" after all they told here in the movie but reading about them was kinda more like that "those" were kinda to extrem - the idea behind was sure ok but the execution....eh....no.


Anyways, it kinda let me think about it and might left a small mark on me coz it let me think about "where im standing at" here in this fandom...


SO again, maybe you should watch it as well, i can only say do if you have the time for. leave a comment below if you have any stuff to say about.

Well some weeks ago i pretty much had really not much or no motivation to do anything. Right now all i can say now is that i feel a little bit better and actually got some ideas for my art at least like finishing the beach themed "stuff" i draw right now with all my female characters. So the next pictures will for sure be one of my characters i didnt draw "right now" around the beach side ^^


As for other stuff, well, there is not much to talk about. I got not really any idea for a new or good game i could work on or like neither do i play a lot games right now. I sure enjoy some and test some (its steam sale so...duh XD) but i really think i need to change a lot stuff. Not only gaming wise but more or less life wise coz HEALTH wise i have to be careful. I really need to change something somewhat but since we have the virus and this death epidemic around, times are hard to do so tbh.


So yea, i duno what else i can say here now but only maybe say if you have ideas what i could draw or which picture i could REDRAW let me know about. ^^


I also thought i might should take some commission and ask what people are willing to pay for and who would want one tbh. I duno. X3


Stay tuned! :D
