NEW: Arcade Game Section Added to the Site

There’s not much there now, but I’ve added another section to my website accessible from the menu (or right here) that I affectionately call the Arcade. There you can play ‘Flight of the Stratos Guardian’ (a touch/one-click based endless flyer) and the work-in-progress of the Jet Dancer game (an action platformer). After having some trouble uploading ‘Stratos Guardian’ to the Windows store, I decided to try plopping my stuff right here. Just a fun little idea I had.

Try as I could, I could not figure out how to get the ‘iframe’ any larger on the pages for the game, so I included links to the games on the Arcade page to play them full sized.

By the way, the Jet Dancer game supports both keyboard and XBox controls, so if you have the latter, plug one in before you try it. The controls shown in the options menu will reflect whatever buttons you press to get there.

The Jet Dancer game doesn’t work on mobiles, since I didn’t add any touch controls, but Flight of the Stratos Guardian does (although at least on my smartphone, it took forever to load and the music didn’t play).

I’m just trying things out. Let me know what you think of my games!

July Update

It’s July, and I’m having a very creative summer so far.

I actually finished putting together the 100 Girl Art Book, officially titled R.P.B. (which stands for Random Practice Babes), cover and all. I’ve submitted the files to Ka-Blam, a printing company, and as far as I know, there aren’t any problems. I could put out a digital version right now, but I want to see what the print copy looks like first. When I’m comfortable with everything, I will likely be making the book available through Amazon, IndyPlanet, Gumroad, and eventually through direct sales when I can afford to order enough copies.

I’ve opened up some extremely low-cost commissions for folks who want to see characters drawn or designed fast and easy with cel shades. For only $25 you can get a character drawn in full color by me, no limit for now. Here are a couple I’ve done so far:

Viper 6 for Mina Korzan

You can contact me here and make a $25 deposit for your spot through this link: PayPal — make sure you mention it’s for the commission sale and send me references or descriptions of your character.

As for the future, after much deliberation, I’ve decided that I’m going to resume game development. I thought about making comics but that path just is not for me. Game development lets me continue problem solving, which I love, and I’m still drawing and designing characters. I love retro 2D games and I want to make a library of them featuring my characters and ideas.

While the Jet Dancer game is foremost on my mind, I’m also thinking that it’s a bit ambitious and I need to train myself to actually publish games, so I want to make something simpler as well, like a shooter or something. But I won’t enjoy creating it if it doesn’t have a sexy element, so…I’m pondering some unique approaches.

And as a reward for reading this all the way through, you get an exclusive look at one of my hundred girls!

Trying out a new skin coloring approach

Had some fun experimenting with a softer coloring style. This one isn’t work safe, so click to view if you’re interested.

I did say I wasn’t going to post too many completed images in the future, but this one I felt deserved to be shown off. I like how it turned out. Hope you do as well…feedback is welcome.

I don’t know if I’m going to use this coloring style on too many images; it took quite a while, and though it was fun, I decided against any kind of real backdrop because I was worn out. Maybe next time.
