Treadmills and pixels

A slightly more laid-back day today. I caught up with a bit of admin this morning, got some ukulele practice in ready for tomorrow’s class, and then spent the afternoon working on my text adventure.

I got my steps in on the treadmill this evening (if it was spring/summer I might be tempted out for some evening runs at the moment, but it’s getting dark fairly early now!). I’ve also been doing lots of reading about creating basic pixel art. For my last text adventure game, I created the graphics by making photo montages, scaling down the images, heavily pixelising them and reducing them to a 16-colour palette. For my current project, I’d like to create at least some of the artwork from scratch, so I’ll be doing some experimenting this week.

Hoping for a productive day working on my various projects tomorrow.

Not an OOTD: I’m no artist, but I gotta start somewhere!
