Just a heads up, I'm gonna be busy with work for most of this month so submissions will be few and far between. Sorry, but them's the breaks, folks.

On the plus side, when I do get some free time it'll be to work on a new OC All-Stars pic. Considering I didn't do one last year but did 2 the year prior, I'm due to produce another one. And since the last time I did this was in 2012, I'll be drawing 12 characters (11 of yours, plus 1 of mine). I'll make another journal entry when I'm ready to start accepting OCs to draw. For those curious, the rules of Fight Club will be more or less the same as the last time. If you plan to submit a character for me to draw, make sure you have a clear reference image or two for me to use. Even if you don't have one ready now, there's plenty of time to get one prepared in time :)

Dead Sun Height Comparison by Dys-Crux
Dead Sun Height Comparison
At the start of the year me and 2 other guys participated in a local game jam where we created a 2D top-down space shooter Smash Bros-inspired game over the course of the weekend. We didn't win any prizes, but that didn't stop us from wanting to continue developing our game. Being the sole artist on the project means I've got a lot of freedom when it comes to designing and creating characters. Speaking of which, it was my idea to attach actual characters to the space ships you'll be piloting.

With the game being part space shooter, I thought about designing characters around the astrological signs from different cultures. This not only gives me a plethora of influences to work with but also helps give the game a much more grand scale. Of course, Mist (the Aquarius/Virgo character) was fitted into this game and not the other way around. I'm not sure whether she'll represent Aquarius, Virgo, or both. Personality-wise, she could be either, but her connection to the Gemini character places her squarely as a Virgo. There are 8 playable characters planned so there's always the possibility of having her represent both signs if I remain undecided. We'll see.

Aye, I've been doing very good, thanks. I've just been neglecting my DA account to focus on other things (game development, drawing, etc.).

I saw your work with Famitracker and it's really good! Tell me, do you have an aptitude for music? I haven't tried it but the interface looks a little intimidating for someone like myself who is more accustomed to FL Studio and Window's Midi Maker Studio '95 ^^;

Aptitude for music? :la: That's a very grand compliment, thank you! Though, I admit I have not taken any bit of music theory (just your typical grade-school music classes and middle-school band class). ^^;
Almost everyone in my family though has played an instrument or even use it for their career (clarinet for me, trying to mess around with piano, not a career). I just go by what I hear and think what sounds okay... so maybe I'm teaching myself subconsciously?

The interface took a little bit of time to get use to, but it's not that hard to learn. It is your standard scroll-based bar notes. Just mess around with the program, look at tutorials (one takes you through the process of making Megaman 2's Doctor Wily stage theme), check the help section and effects page, and also look at the included demos for what tricks people use. It does a pretty good job emulating NES 8-bit.

And I'm glad to see you are feeling well.

Oh yeah, have you heard of Mighty No. 9 and Shantae: HGH? :D

Actually, I've been the one telling others about Mighty No. 9, even managing to convince my boss at work to support it. Shantae, on the other hand, is not so important in my eyes. Other than it being developed by Wayforward, I have no interest in the project. While you can always count on them to produce beautiful animation and great music that compliments the action onscreen, the gameplay of their games can be a little shallow and unpolished.

Of course, just these 2 games have cast a mighty large shadow onto all other game projects on Kickstarter. (including my own studio's, sadly ^^;)

Ahh, excellent. :mwahaha:

Oh yeah, after you mentioned Mega Man X in the note, I looked up its intro stage (with egorapter explaining it also :D) and yikes... it's almost exactly how I'm making my game. That's crazy.

...Perhaps my game is looking too Megaman-ish.

2D Running and gunning is not unique to Megaman, although it may very well be the ultimate example. Still, if you're worried about being labeled a copycat, ensure that you come up with something to differentiate it. Of course, that's easier said than done.
