So yesterday I wake up and go to the bathroom. I'm still half-asleep and planning to go back to bed. All of a sudden, I hear a scream from the downstairs bathroom and a series of loud thumps. My dad is a fall risk, so the family's often prepared to jump at a moment's notice to help. I screamed because I was scared for my mother and jumped off the toilet and ran down the stairs. After I found out no one needed to go to the hospital, I relaxed. All of a sudden, though, I felt this shooting pain go through my right hip joint. I normally have issue with swelling joints and the hip is one of worse ones. I don't know if I pulled something on way way down or if it was soreness from work the previous day or a combination of the two, but the pain was pretty darn bad.
So now I'm taking leftover anti-inflammtories from my tennis elbow incident to help with the pain. I gotta go to work today and tomorrow, so that'll be fun...
On another note, I finished the 3rd CG for Elemental: Seven Minutes in Heaven. Making fair progress. At an average of two CGs per character there's gonna be almost if not exactly 30 of them. So that'll take roughly a month. After that, hopefully putting it all together goes smoothly. I'd theorize it'd take about a week to do, so I'll guess two weeks to give a time cushion. Not sure if I should bother coming up with original text boxes and buttons, though. It'd add something, sure, but it IS my first visual novel...
Well, I can start sketching the next CG now before work to get a head-start. Monday we're going to go to a veteran memorial cemetery to visit my grandpa for Father's Day. Unfortunately I couldn't call off because they'd already put up the schedule the next day I went to work =I
Anywho, I'm really happy with how each of these artworks is going and it's giving me more of a confidence boost in my art skills and style =) So long as I don't look at any amazing artwork for the next month, that's should hold nicely =eUe= *smacked* Sorry about no art updates in the meantime, it's best to save the CGs as a surprise later =3 I'll still keep you guys updated, though~! <3
Got the flats down. That'll be all for today since My family went to visit my grandmother in the hospital. She got really badly burned by hot water on her entire abdomen. Fortunately, she seemed to be alert and alright enough to get up on her own and converse, but I feel bad that it happened =(
So I haven't been working as fast on the next background because it's getting closer to my great-grandmother's big birthday party so I've had to focus on making my dress for that and we have some house repairs coming up, so my mother's been asking us to do a lot of cleaning.
In the midst of all this and not being able to get as much done toward the game, I developed an ulcer. So I've been in pain with some bad heartburn. Was waiting for it to go away on its own, but it was steadily getting worse without any kind of relief. So I managed to buy some Comfort Gel. Which has helped the main issue a bit. It doesn't hurt as much, but the acid's still kicking my butt.
I've gotten so far behind my own personal schedule that my confidence is taking a blow and I'm still stressed about this game. I also feel like maybe it's not important to my mother as I don't feel she understands that every task she asks me to do makes it harder to progress... But what can I do? I live here and do practically nothing but exist, if even that. I worry that perhaps this effort is futile. However, I can't give up on it for that same reason. because it'll be like every other failure I've done. So I gotta get it done even if it takes longer than originally anticipated. I finally understand why game makers have to postpone their release dates... =w=;
Sorry for the bum-fest. Just thought I'd update stuff.
I recently got my new All-in-one printer delivered~ He's named Weisshelm~
