    Did you finish your LD game / make something playable?
    I can imagine youd do what I'd do and spend too much time making everything look super sexy, which I might add; it does look super sexy.

    I love the pop of the foreground art over the background, that's a skill I need to develop.

    WOW!

    As a beginner game programmer, amateur artist and an interested in game design, I am a big fan of your art and design style!

    For those who haven't found it yet, here's the LD entry: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum...review&uid=110

    The tiles are gorgeous, but I think Aquaria-like big non-tiled chunks would be better at this resolution and level of detail.

    I worked a bit more on Chromboid, but... derailed. Started looking into the Touhou games. You've probably run into the "bullet hell" game Perfect Cherry Blossom on youtube at some point if you're a gamer. It's actually the 7th game in the series of indie games made by a certain "ZUN" (he makes music, gfx and code alone). The characters in the Touhou-verse are quite popular and there's a lot of fan content.

    Programming a bullet hell is not that hard. The tricky part is coming up with fun and varied bullet patterns and most of the time is spent programming new kinds of behaviors, effects, timings, and nudging stuff around. After having worn myself out struggling with these things, I decided to do some character art instead. At first I was going to do some 80's anime style, but eventually I decided to use proportions closer to those used by ZUN, though a bit more curvy. I'm not much for spaghetti/stick legs.

    (These designs are all mine.)

    I did these as the fireworks were going off outside, which is suitable because that's what a bullet hell looks like.

    Edit:Updated image with some colors. Also, this is what my engine looked like after a few hours. I spent 3 more days on it but a screenshot now would look almost exactly the same.

    I love watching you project-jumping. But seriously.. If you're gonna pick something to define yourself, there are better choices than "not finishing things." Besides, that's my thing. In all well-meaning ways to criticize a persons character...

    I just watched an episode of futurama with the flying spaghetti monster... Not sure if you came up with the actual design or not but when I saw that i just thought how bizarre it is the way it's taken off like that. Being part of a cultural movement in a really unexpected way.
    Also, great sketchbook, very inspiring.

    Holy crap, it's Arne! Awesome to see an old face from the days of my pixelation-loving youth! I'm happy to have found your sketchbook! I greatly admired a lot of your character demakes etc, but I had no idea you'd posted such a treasure trove of things in classic Arne style!

    Cheers, and here's hoping you keep on sketching!

    (For the sake of curiosity : I was too small a fish for you to remember)

    Arne, I was wondering what ever happened to pantygirl fortress? Do you still have any of your mockups for that?

    I wrote a few thousand lines of code for that in '06, but a DF game is lot's of work, code wise. Here are a few of the concepts. I changed the clockworks a little. The pink mech is the only design which works though.

    Some random Pathways into Darkness doodles. Not terribly interesting but this is a sketchbook.

    Nice, the pink mobile suit/robot is slick. I dig the blocky yellow one too, looks like it'd fold up into a box or something for storage when not in use.

    I've tried coding similar games and it starts off well enough but turns into a huge mess before I can get far enough to make it worth showing. Not to mention just dealing with the sheer scale of a game like that.

    Thanks for sharing, rock on.
