Slight delays and… pattern plays? Whatever.Posted: November 19, 2013 Filed under: Updates | Tags: NaGaReDeMon, Process, Shima 1 Comment
Oh god rhymes. They seem like a such a good idea when you start, but then you make some dumb-ass choice for the end of your first phrase and everything falls apart. Tonight I’m really posting for momentum purposes, not because I have a lot to say. November has been busier than I thought it would be (read: Pokemon has been getting really good), so I really have nothing to show right now except for these patterns.
Some of these patterns already existed, so let’s go through them left to right, top to bottom (think phone buttons).
1: Water – Obviously already used
2: Brown Squares – For my money, too elaborate, but still traditional and possibly good for something.
3: Tatami – New texture that I am using for the Tomodachi. Not actually a traditional texture, so to speak, but it looks nice on the card.
4: Rice Paddy – A great pattern that I really need to redraw, but one that is already used to great effect on the board.
5: Orange Overlapping Circles – Way too harsh for my taste, but it could have some use if we chose a better color for it.
6: Black Hexagons – A really interesting new pattern that I came across and roughly recreated. Could be good as a brown for a new storehouse or harbor texture.
7: Wood Grain – Already used as boats, but if things get shuffled around this could become any of the three “wooden” texture we’ll need.
8: Tan Stars – One of my favorites, and already used in the pasture. I need to redraw it, but otherwise it’s great.
9: Purple Tortoise – A very traditional texture, one that we used for Tomodachi before, but something that I would love to re-purpose because like I said, it’s super traditional.
Right, so there’s that. As I was typing this I did realize I have one more thing to post.
This is some terrible, horrible graphic design, but hey, it’s a work in progress. Later in the week I’ll have a pow-wow with Alex and Morgan and hopefully we (read: Morgan) will find a good way to array the art and information. For now, enjoy the lovely tatami texture, and try not to be frustrated because I CLEARLY FORGOT TO RECOLOR THE HAIR TIE AFTER I CHANGED THE KIMONO TRIM TO PURPLE. FUCK.
The patterns are pretty. Can I use them in my casual game?
