...Shit, I almost forgot I still had this.
Well, there's not much to say, anyway. See this blog post for a download link, as well as this blog post for important information, particularly in regards to the use of assets.
TGA website - major layout updateHeeeeeeeey...
Yeah. I'm still alive. And still using DeviantArt to some small degree. Amazing, innit?
I don't even have anything terribly interesting to say. Progress on chain of lucidity has been coming along well enough (I've implemented furigana support into my dialogue system yesterday).
You know what else happened yesterday? Team Gaijin Alex's website got a complete overhaul after languishing in shittily-designed pages with little content for nearly two whole years. Here's what I changed:
replaced the tacky diamond-patterned background with a simple three-color gradient
recreated various image assets and improved the page layout for a more professional look
commissioned wodkanna for a group drawing of the current three members of the team in order to finally have something to put on the "Meet the Team" page (although she unfortunately wasn't able to accept payment, so she ended up doing it for free
Devious Journal EntryNo, DeviantArt. Fuck you. Perhaps you shouldn't have jacked up the cost of premium membership. Better yet, perhaps you should actually give a fuck about your userbase before asking us to give a fuck about you. You're basically the new YouTube in that you keep shoveling stupid shit upon stupid shit that no one cares about or even wants. All the while, when someone is getting their art stolen, you don't do shit. And you ESPECIALLY don't do shit when someone's being harrassed relentlessly by someone else. Instead, no matter how many complaints you get about someone, you always resort to the stock response of "block and ignore", as if that's gonna make the problem go away. You don't even go after people if they're spreading obvious hate speech or slander/libel about someone, instead claiming that it doesn't count as harrassment if you're seeking out comments (yeah, right. As if you couldn't find them on submissions showing up in your watch feed, you one-track-minded fuck
It's been a while, hasn't it?Lately, it seems like the cool thing to make a journal entry explaining what you've been up to if you haven't shown any activity on dA for months, so I want in on that fun.
Except... well, I can't really say I've been as productive as I'd have wanted to be. As some of you may know, I was at A-kon last June, along with Spaztique, FullHitPoints, BleachBummer, HTFCirno2000, ChibioChen, LikeThisRLYMatters and Ceej39. That was fun, and I got a taste of just how massive and intense the Undertale fandom could be when assembled in a single room (hell, I was half an hour early for the panel and the line was already curving three times). On Sunday, my father gave me a phone call because I completely forgot to text him, so he got worried about me. Outside of that, I was also texting everyone else quite a bit, which really ran up the phone bill. Totally worth it, though.
There's also this game I've been working on, but since I need to make the
FUCK! I missed my anniversary!Dangit, I had a journal written up that I intended to post on the first of May, but I completely forgot about it, and now it's nearly 4 days later.
Oh well, just pretend we're living three days in the past as you're reading the following...
It's May 1. This day marks the third anniversary of my membership at the Walfas Station Wagon, but to be honest, if it hadn't been that specific day, I probably wouldn't even be able to remember it.
In these last three years, I've grown as a person a lot more rapidly than in the preceding 17-ish years. I was kind of a problem child, really. Getting bullied by what seemed to be pretty much the entire school back in elementary school does that to you, and having autism to cope with doesn't exactly make things any easier. The internet was the only place where I could forge lasting friendships, but even then it wasn't always easy. When you're a kid as socially inept as I was, covering up your eccentricities is hard.
Well, long story short, I had a b
What I've been up toI haven't really submitted much in terms of content lately, have I? I know I'm not exactly obligated to, but I figure I should at least provide some sign of life for those who I don't talk to every day or aren't following me on social media.
Starting with my semester break back in early February, I began feverishly working on a game of my own, but after I got back from visiting my father late March and came down with a cold (with the only remnants of that now being a dry cough), I lost my momentum and haven't really been doing any work on it since. Even now, real-life issues are weighing heavily on me in ways I will not elaborate on.
The only remotely productive thing I've been doing lately is create templates for MajiKana's packaging. I've made some pretty sizable progress with it over the last few days. At some point, I'll also need translations, specifically into German (already covered by yours truly), French, Spanish (already covered), Italian, Dutch (most likely covered), Swedish
HRtP Lunatic Liveplay #5Holy shit, it's the halfway mark.
Anyway, yeah, just making a journal here to announce that DeityDiz93, BleachBummer and I have decided on the next stream's date: 5 March 2016, 5:00 PM central. Don't miss it!
And here's some shameless plugging.
HRtP Lunatic Liveplay #4For now, the date of the stream is going to be February 13, same time as usual. This may end up being delayed by a week, though.
HRtP Lunatic Liveplay #3It felt like forever since the last one, but DeityDiz93 and I have decided on the date for the next one: 16 January, 5:00pm central.
Well, the time may be subject to change, depending on Diz's schedule. Also, I've been playing way too much PSO2 over the last month. I'm gonna have to practice a lot to get all the rust off of my skills.
This year got off on the wrong foot...Earlier today, I saw that my father had sent me a text message, saying that my grandmother passed away at about 9am.
I'm not sure how to feel about it. I'm not exactly sad. After all, I didn't have much contact with her over the last few years. She was confined to a wheelchair because her muscles atrophied. She also had a case of dementia, barely being aware of her surroundings and calling my uncle "mom" because he was the one caring for her when she wasn't in a nursing home. And recently, she was brought into the hospital because she fell off the wheelchair and broke her leg. Not exactly sure if that had any role in her death, but I guess it was simply natural causes. Grandma wasn't exactly fond of those last years of her life. She would occasionally say that she wanted to die, possibly her way of cracking a joke about her physical and mental state, but at the same time, she had the occasional lucid moment and even managed to laugh about something once in a while.
Now her suffering ha
New commission journal OPENOPEN

How to link deviants, deviations, or websites!I am using deviant arts own help topic found here http://help.deviantart.com/81/. I will be expanding upon what they have with examples, to make it easier to understand. Just so you know I am using their outline and explanation, if you would like to know which parts were mine and which are theirs just go to the site above
How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?
There are a few formats you can use, either a link of the users name, displaying the members avatar, or by linking with a personal description.
:iconusername: will display the member's or group's avatar as a link to their page. Remember, however, that the limit for posting blocks of avatars is sixty four per post, and this will not work in signatures.
This seems easy enough, here I will use my own name. :iconamarantheans: will give you :iconamarantheans:

. What I want:
Commission ListFirst of all, the best way to commission me is via sending me a note. Just say what you want and keep it short at first, because in the end matters mostly how your character looks (so add the Ref Sheet too) and what kind of drawing you want, details can come later. Since who knows if I will even accept your Commission.
What I am willing to draw: Canines, the rest you better ask but mostly is the reason that I am not good in drawing other stuff, though asking never hurts.
I live in Europe, so it is EURO, so the prices here will stand in € and all happens via Paypal. If you want to pay in USD, you probably have to pay more.
It would be best if you send me the money, works the easiest for me with paypal. I always demand full payment before, I can assure you though that I am a fast worker and will send you wips if you wish it. BTW, make sure to select: no delivery address needed. Update: I prefer invoices now.
I really do
