Doing Stuff

Well, since it’s going to take a while for whatever next game, I figured I could tell you what I’ve been doing.

First, real life stuff no one cares about, even I don’t care.

Game related, what I’ve been doing these past weeks it’s been mostly practicing and trying to get accustomed to drawing for long periods of time again, and damn I’m rusty, also, my hand is starting to hurt real bad after 30 min or so, that really really sucks.

I have several ideas pretty much ready to go, I haven’t decided which one I’m picking yet, but before going fully into it I’m deciding the sprite style, line thickness and all that, I tried to do thinner lines but is way slower to do, and thick lines look just ugly; and practicing in general because I’m way out of it.

These are some of the practice stuff I’ve done, I think I’m going backwards, I really can’t tell anymore. They’re ideas from the two most likely next games. but It could end up being something entirely different.

About the ideas, an action adventure with a bit more gameplay than before and a shmup like one (yup), guess which one is which… again, just ideas, it may change completely.

And that’s that, this is so you know I’m actually doing and planning stuffz. Once I’m confortable with drawing and with the style again, I’ll be starting to work on it right away, whatever it is.

    Man, I love this art. Seriously, all I can come up with. If this is you rusty, then I can’t wait until you’re back up to stuff.😛

  2. I really like the 2nd and 3rd animation, although I guess those are also the most complicated ones. By the way are you going to continue your work on your earlier project or are you first going for this game now? Any way I’ll be expecting both of them.

    I said it before and I’ll say it again, I look forward to the day when you work on Prisonkage again. I do like the art. You can only get better from here.

  4. It’s cool that you’re keeping us all in the loop. Keep it up. I can’t wait to see what your next project will be.

    Are you ever gonna pick prisonkage back up?

    • Yes, as I said previously I will be working on it on my own and won’t be mentioning it again here, this blog is hentai related and has nothing to do with that game, I will use the other blog when I have something to say about it.

        Awesome i would seriously throw money at any game you make though this was was awesome

  6. Would a wrist support or a drawing glove help with the pain at all?

    • I tried one that holds your wrist in place but is really unconfortable for drawing, the pain comes mainly from doing pressure (I think), I don’t see how a glove could help with that, I’ll have to check some and see how they work.

    Could you put a section where you play fully nude? Or an unlock to play fully nude after completing the game?

  9. Hey Vos, long time no see. Just some minor things to point out, the design for the shmup character is good, but don’t you think that the wings are a bit long? I believe that it would be easier for you to make her have like a jetpack or something on a smaller scale, since it will be easier to animate and add in the hitboxes. I know this is early design and all of that, I’m just talking about practicality.

    • Maybe, I do want wings though, and is really not that difficult, not more than human characters anyway, about the hitbox, I actually thought about doing the wings going down would make more sense as a hit box and it would look better I think.

      • erolwtf Says:

        Yeah that sounds like a better plan, though maybe you can make the wings something like:

        It kinda looks cooler and they’re in a smaller scale (and still wings, they could also do something like fold on her back or something). I know its too fantasy-looking, but then again, why not? Btw, art’s not mine, lost my drawing material and couldn’t sketch you a fast one -.-

      • Yeah, I dunno if I like the fantasy look, it should be more techo futuristic like, I even thought about pure energy wings, whatever, we’ll see.

  12. Hey, if you don’t mind me asking, would you be able to describe how you do your animations? Hand drawn, bone based, etc.

    • They are all hand drawn regardless. If by that you mean if they are done with pen and paper or tablet, it’s tablet.

      Human characters are animated frame by frame which means each frame is drawn one after the other, but I use some base shapes in the background to keep consistency and avoid deformation. Except the faces which are a static image being moved around, again, to avoid having different faces at each frame, my faces end up different every time, so I rather use only one, and move it on top of the frame by frame body.

      Enemies in xenotake were rigged, which is very similar to bones, we also call it puppet animation, you can notice it by the stiff motion of the limbs which are being moved and rotated in each frame. I want to do frame by frame animations for enemies this time too but who knows, it all depends if it’s worth the extra effort.

  13. Is the story line on this one going to build on the last one? Or is it just going to have the same characters?
    Also, some ass would be good in this game as well. In the last game, it was tits everywhere, and not that much ass. Again, just a suggestion, as the last xenotake was amazing, and was even part of a series on youtube called “Hentai Games that are good”, that’s actually how I found the game

    Hello

    I bought the Xenotake and congratulations, Vosmug!

    But I’m not finding the option to remove censorship, can you help me?

    Tifa!😀

  16. I’ve been noticing recently a quirk your game has, and that’s when I exit the game window, but it’s still got a process running in the task manager which I’ve had to manually stop. Happens every time I run the game, and sometimes they even pile up so I’ll have the game off, but a couple of the same processes running.

    They don’t take up much memory or anything, but I figured I’d let you know in case it’s a simple fix or whatnot.

  17. Please, i need help, in Xenotake i have benn already 3 hours stuck in the robot part and cant get past, what do i need? what am i doing wrong? please help

    Long hair! That’s what I’m talking about whooooo

  21. Are you planning on making a Xenotake sequel? Please say yes c:

  22. Music Video Guy Says:

    The third animation looks the most natural, and I like that skin/hair color combination the most also.

    The downward swept wings are an improvement.

    Tifa’s forearms look REALLY thin.

    Will the next game have new stuff?
    Jumping, crawling, stealth, escorting?

  24. Before the good, also seems to have a curious game demo?
    New people it is a shooting elements of the game?
