18 months of chronic illness

Tomorrow will be the eighteen month anniversary of my chronic illness.

For those who don't know, it's a status migraine: a migraine that doesn't go away.

I don't usually talk about it much. Most of what I do nowadays is pursuing a distraction from the pain and nausea and everything else that comes with my condition. I miss being able to move without getting sick. I miss being able to think clearly. Running. My old games. Music. Art. Writing.

It's so difficult to mourn the life you left behind.

More new designs

A few more designs! I've felt like hell for the last few weeks, but today's the way my doctor gets back in town, and I'm hoping to be feeling much better soon.

A high-low skirt, and demo-ing the previous clothes with the bell skirt.

Sparkles! Different styles on top, demos on bottom.

Some painting while I'm down...

Hey guys! Still really, really sick. I don't think I've been this bad off in... at least half a year, maybe longer. The good news is I've gotten some heavy-duty drugs, and I'll be back to seeing my doctor twice a week starting on the eighth. After that I should get back to my old, still-pained-but-not-as-miserable-self.

In the meantime, I thought I'd design some new, cute clothes for the LPC set. It's not much (front view only) but it's nice to get some new looks started, at least. The set could use some cute things.

Here's what I have so far-- a sweater thing and a skirted coat.

I'm on Twitter!

Still sick, but I've taken the time to make myself a twitter account! I'll be posting project updates and answering questions there, for those of you who prefer the platform.

Sick Break

Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know, I've been more sick than usual this week, and not really leaving my bed.

Updates will resume when I can walk around without falling over; but when they do, we have a new server with all the trimmings we need to download generated images!

Weapons system is in!

Small update, but we can now change weapons in the character creator! We have three types of bows, ten swung weapons, a bunch of polearms... or you can set the weapons to 'none' and see how the guy animates with bare hands.

The UI needs some graphics drawn and displayed, and I need to build out the render controller to support greatswords and dragonspears and other oversized weapons, but for now it's pretty neat.

Muscular base: hurt animation!


And we have a hurt animation, and pants to go with it! Which means our muscular base can walk around, swing a weapon, and get himself killed-- all while wearing pants. This is now a fully functional LPC base!

Download it on OpenGameArt.org.

It has, of course, been added to the Character Creator-- eight skin tones and twenty colors of pants to go with it.
