1. Ugh, so sorry for the ugly photo, but my sketchbook is too big to scan.

    Playing around with some character design ideas for Mephistopheles in the visual novel prototype I’m working on to teach myself Ren’Py.

    I’m trying to decide what kind of goat ears to give her.  Leaning toward the big floppy ones, since those are so different from other designs I’ve seen.  The horns under her hat need a lot of work still… :/

     
  2. New background for Queen At Arms!

    This is Archmagus Rubus’ tent, where he researches and plans and practices new spell runes.  The flower on his desk was a gift from his mentor.  It’s one of his most prized possessions.

    Part of my briefing for this illustration was, I kid you not, “…Just make it look really fuckin’ magic.”   :)

     
  3. Just finished another commission for Electric Purple Studios' tabletop RPG Aeronauts

    Prior to this, I had little to no experience with vehicle design, so this massive airship was a challenge.

    The Queen At Arms Kickstarter campaign is winding down and will end on the night of Monday, Sept. 15th.

    It’s been amazing so far.  I’m in awe of people’s generosity and their enthusiasm for our project.

    Contribute to our wartime fantasy visual novel on Kickstarter here!

    Just 10 hours left!!

    With 7 hours to go we’re already well past our mark. We have some extra stuff on the donation list just for the last day, so snap them up if you want them.

  6. More from my adventures in learning Ren’Py…
    I’ve added some of the ugliest filler sprites the world has ever seen - also some music, sound effects, small animations, and more dialogue.

    You get to be a mash-up of Anastasia and Mulan (lost princess posing as boy soldier). And you rescue hot grateful princes. WTF ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!

    GO SUPPORT QUEEN AT ARMS. IT’S DAY 1, AND THEY’RE ALMOST A THIRD OF THE WAY TO THEIR GOAL. WE CAN MAKE THIS A REALITY. FRICK YEAH. LET’S DO THIS.

    4 days left in the Kickstarter campaign!

    why indeed

  9. Testing the coding waters with Ren’Py.  I plugged in some dialogue from Goethe’s Faust just to see what I could do with it.  Obviously, this isn’t much to look at, but I’ve never programmed a damn thing in my life, so this is a little exciting for me.

    My goal for this is to probably just flesh it out into a single illustrated scene and see where it goes from there.  I’m toying with the idea of this being “Faust with an all-female cast”.  Lady-Mephistopheles would be fun to draw.

     

  10. Anonymous said: Hello! I backed Queen at Arms at the regular edition tier, but I am actually really interested in the Deluxe Edition if voice acting is achieved. Would I be able to upgrade to Deluxe edition after release, somehow? I would prefer not to purchase the whole Deluxe edition while owning the original game, but. . .

    Hi Anon!

    While I support Queen at Arms and am looking forward to the release I am not directly involved with the game nor am I part of their team. For a more accurate answer you may want to try messaging Meagan Trott (one of the artists and the lady in charge of the Kickstarter) or asking via the Queen at Arms tumblr page.

    But here’s what I think: Though I’m not sure if it will be possible to upgrade to the Deluxe Edition after the release, you’re able to switch tiers as long as the Kickstarter is running. I think that we’ll know within the next seven days whether or not voice acting will be unlocked (and if the Kickstarter continues as it has been I’m quite certain that they’ll meet their goal) and in that case you’ll still have three days to switch tiers. (Maybe serenityfrost or meagantrott or queenatarms can confirm?)

    Hi Anon!  Meagan Trott of the Q@A dev team here.  
    It’s possible to change your pledge and upgrade to the $20 Deluxe Edition reward tier while the Kickstarter is still running.  However, like Acelineus said, we won’t know if we’ll be able to implement voice acting unless/until the $7500 stretch goal is reached.  So yeah, the best answer I can give you right now is just to echo Acelineus’ advice.  I’ll run your question by our producer though, because he knows more about how we’re distributing the game once it’s complete.  

    Mr. Producer had this to add:
    The deluxe edition will still be available later on it will just cost slightly more :-)

    We might also hold little contests for people to upgrade, like a fanart contest.”
