My other blog

Hey, for those of you that are interested, I have started another tumblog here. This is all comics and storyboards so far as it’s primarily aimed at getting me a new job.

Check it out, follow it, tell all your Hollywood pals about this hot new storyboard guy.

Cheers,

Daniel

I have a new blog

I’ll be keeping this one going, for random pictures and things, as I have (intermittently) so far, but this one over at blogspot is (hopefully) going to be a bit more structured, charting my progress through the two-year fine art course I’ve just started. As well as images of my work as I produce it, it will have actual words and things describing what I’ve been doing and what I think about it.


Thankyou.

Screenshots from another unfinished game from a while back - War Gimp is a crude shoot-em-up type game with horrible graphics, music and sound. I think I wasn’t in a happy place when I made this.

As it is, there’s only the one level but it is playable. Arrow keys to move. Z fires machine gun, X fires grenade. Move onto manholes or ladders to go up / down. If you get touched by the baddies you’ll get damaged and everything will go a bit wonky - pick up first-aid packages to correct this. Ammunition is limited but can be replenished by picking up the red and green packages.

One of the reasons the graphics are horrible is deliberate - I was restricting myself to the CGA palette.

The game was programmed in Game Maker. I made the music and sound effects using the modular soft-synth application Buzz
