Hey everyone! I have a really quick update. I really can't say anything since I've been writing and working on the school... so I can't update on game progress without it being like...3 sentences long. SO... I'll show you some more facesets/faceset colouring... And perhaps add more about artist's canvas?
Anyway, so here we are! I hope you like them >.< *Crosses fingers*
So first is Tristan. I think you'll realize that his eye colour has changed. I may add something to his shirt... we'll see though.
It's a little messy (as you see there are some spots outside the lines and some without any colour. I'll be cleaning it up and finishing him up today.) He may also have the rest of his body added on... but I'm not sure. I'm not too good with drawing on a tablet XD
Tristan's colours are taken from 2 anime characters. His eye colour from a female and his hair from a male. His skin colour is custom.
Tristan's personality has slightly differed from his original design. Yes, he is still shy and cutesy, but he's a little harder to push around. At this stage, Tristan as a teenager will be a well-built and handsome boy with a little more confidence.
As far as Artist's Canvas goes, Roxie makes a joke, referring to Tristan. He so far only is mentioned. I doubt he will be making any sort of appearance, since Tristan's role in CD is lesser than others.
So this is Tristan as a child.
For now, I don't have anymore I have fully completed, but you will be getting a revamped Cindy, a drawn Tai, hopefully a drawn Tyrone, A coloured Gage. The last thing I have to show is a drawn Anastasia.
Anastasia has come a long way since her creation. She was originally the bully figure who couldn't change, but as she evolved, she became a character of depth and her actions are justified. She remains close with Tai, Tyrone and Damion. When Destiny Revolution goes into full swing, Midnight hopes to bring her back. She is seen as a brat who does have a heart and feelings and makes judgements since she does not know any better. Despite her wrong doings, she loves her brother more than anything.
As far as Artist's Canvas goes, Anastasia has no scheduled appearance nor mentioning. The character most similar to her is Analise, the blind sniper.
Anastasia was drawn before all of the new facesets (I.e. Leo, Gage, Max, Andy... etc.)
So this is her as a child :) her eyes are a little wonky I know... I'll fix everything when I colour it. Her and Andy have a new last name :O I may change it back though... I just like this version better because now I KNOW Russian and this sounds a heck of a lot more Russian than Valitroph
So... That's all I have for Facesets. I'm just scanning the few Artist's Canvas ones I have drawn. I will be releasing the website soon :) I just need to add more about the game >.<
The visual aspect of the game along with the written portions are being done first, unlike CD which is doing it all together.
I'll give a little more insight to Artists Canvas as well as character equivalents and scheduled appearances from Celestial Dance. I will also give Some interesting Celestial Dance character Information as well as my reply to Sol ^_^
Of course you guys love characters based on personality too... right? Anyway, I'll be showing you who in Celestial Dance relates to those who are in Artist's Canvas!
No names will be revealed at this time.
None of these characters are actually based on CD Characters with the exception of Roxie and Max... who still change greatly in the game.
Unlike Celestial Dance, I love all of my characters the same.
The Blind sniper: This girl is the closest in personality to Damion, Anastasia with a slight hint of Tytannia... Weird? Maybe... Awesome character? Totally! She is based on basically ever violent female anime character out there... She is basically 100 times more violent than all of them XD
The violin player: He is actually based on one of my top 16 anime characters. He is somewhat mix of Andy and Willow personality wise, but has a whole different personality. He replaces the role of Andy in the four main NPCs of the game.
The Playboy: This man is based strictly on my imagination. He contains mainly Damion's cold shoulder. He doesn't really have a personality from Celestial Dance. If he were to replace a character in Artist's Canvas... it would be Damion.
The farmer: This girl is actually based on the daughter of an OC I have created. She has a hint of the Celestial Dance Roxie and Tytannia. She is a feminine yet tomboyish person. She CAN be a little bit loud mouthed, but she doesn't really fit into Tytannia's personality type. She takes Cindy and Tytannia's place in AC.
The baseball player: He is entirely based on one of my favorite anime characters. He takes the place of Andy in Roxie's life as well as the excitable character, Gage.
The best friend (Max): Shockingly, Max isn't the guy you know from Celestial Dance. He has that sweet quality to him to proves that he cares, but Max has a colder side to him. He is more strictly based on the character he was originally based on. He is determined and a generally strong willed person. He barely like the Celestial Dance Maxie. It's only that caring part of him that makes him the same. Through the game, it is inferred that it is the same Max, but his personality changed when he was thrown into the town. He obviously doesn't replace anyone.
The best friend (Roxie): Roxie is as sweet, yet she becomes very sarcastic. She is generally the same, but less shy and is able to stand up for herself. She still fears a lot and she is a peacemaker. She once again, obviously does not replace anyone.
There are more characters.... but I'm tired and Lazy.
Celestial Dance Cameo appearences
The following people will be mentioned in Artist's canvas:
- Tristan (confirmed)
More about Artist's Canvas
Okay I know what you're thinking, it seems as if I'm focusing more on AC than CD. That's not true at all. I think that since I mentioned AC, I just have to tell you guys about it. In Celestial Dance, since most of the stuff I'm working on is the same, there isn't much to update on. I will be releasing the website soon :)
War: This game is coming from a girl who HATES war RPGs. For me to be adding a war portion to this game... is huge. You don't have to take part in it... but it has some fun in it (You can go spy on people in the other town) and the story is based on the war. The reason it began was because the town you live in, was previously known as the most beautiful town of all times. The sister towns got jealous and attacked. (This is the current concept it may change.)
About the heros: We know that our trusty Hero in Celestial Dance as Alice, but this time around, she will not be returning as our hero. There will be two new heros: Grayson (who I have mentioned before) and Celeste (Who was just recently named). Both are humorous characters.
Children: As bad as this will sound, you can literally make one of your kids. and what I mean by this... you can litterally create what they would look like. We'll see about this feature later. During your/your wife's pregnancy, you can wish for your child's gender.
Your 'Mystical' Guide: You have a buddy with you at all times: A flying elf who is less than impressive at anything. She is loud, rude and sometimes screws things up big time.
Creations: I did mention before you would have to create things after chapter 3. It is a lot like cooking... but awesomer. You can create mythical beings like kitsunes out of foxes (Kitsunes meaning a fox with multiple tails like ninetails from pokemon.) I'm currently writing out different combos for creations and I have no idea what to do XD And before you guys actually get into the game, I want to warn you that you can't create until later chapters. You can do simple revivals of the town, but can't fully customise until you reach that chapter :) I know it may be hard to wait, but there is a reason. You will find out when you play ^_^
Chapters: As far as I know there will be 5-6 chapters. The final chapter can be played for as long as you want, but the 6 chapters play out a very interesting story that will help you get to where you want to be. Each chapter ends when you reach your goals. Depending on your choices in the first chapter, it will influence a lot when you are further on in the game. No one ages graphically like CD, but you will be able to see the differences in maturity. Actually, you child may age graphically. My idea is that they can grow to a teenager. Same face sets, only re-coloured. (but the three children would look different obviously)
Faces and personalities: Like CD, the faces are hand drawn. The personalities are nothing at all like CD. Some of the characters have terrible morals (I won't say anything on here... but when I release the website, go read the bios of all the boys). So... unlike celestial Dance, Artists canvas has a smaller variety of characters with more depth and humour to their character. We have a girl who believes she is three people trapped in the same body, one girl (side character) has a name that contradicts her personality...The list carries on...
So now I will go on to replying to Kuroneko's comment ^_^
Message to Kuroneko
It's fine ^_^ I'm sorry to hear about it being exams :/ I just found out I failed one of my exams, (It's because my teacher is dumb, it seriously was not my fault. First time I have failed anything in my life) but I passed the course. (actually almost with a decent mark) It's summer over here so I don't have school XD
I'm SOOO Glad you like them :D I actually had them drawn for quite some time. I'll be finished colouring them soon I hope they will satisfy >.<
I'm so glad you like them ^_^ I will be revamping Roxie's two coloured ones soon :) I will keep you posted ^_^ Don't worry :)
You'll see them soon enough :) I'm going to try to fix up the website today so I can release it. That way, I don't have to update on here :)
The style of facesets for AC is WAAAY different that CD... okay that's a lie. You can tell I drew them XD but I love all of my characters :) So you'll learn about them soon enough ^_^
Thank goodness, I changed Max in Artist's canvas. He's become a deeper and less boring character. I think you'll like him better than the Celestial Dance one. I try to give the characters qualities that they would like. Unlike Celestial Dance where I did it strictly on bias XD
His hair is a little wilder and so in his personality. I'll have to see how much of him I'll change. he's still very nice... just not as... goody two shoes.
The war makes up the story XD I hate the war, but I think it'll be interesting to add something like that for people who like that aspect. Who knows, there may be something that you may want to do... i.e. spy on the other town, or send flowers to those who have lost families.
But I agree... I would rather just cook and socialize.
I'll add in some cat combos ^_^ I love cats, dogs... all mammals. I've owned a cat all my life and a dog for the main part of it. Two cats... one passed away and one is here annoying me. I actually became allergic to cats last year :S
Anyway, you can make your own animals... yes ^_^
LOL That is very true. I love characterisation. I like making things that are different. They have wonderful stories.. even your character has a story ^_^
You made me cry when I saw that :') That was one of the BEST gifts I have EVER have received <3 Thank you SOOOOOOOOO Much <3
Anyway, until next time ^_^
I'm a total dork who writes too much all the time because I like typing and I used to write novel-length stories and I'm just a weird person who does some things and breathes and stuff.
