Hello from the New Artist
« on: December 20, 2021, 01:15:24 pm »

Hey Everybody!

I've posted this same message on Reddit, but I think it belongs here as well.

I've been pretty silent throughout these past few weeks, but I've been lurking around, and I've seen all your messages. It's great to feel your excitement and supportiveness, so thank you all!

I know with Meph and Mike in the past, you've come to expect more frequent little updates, straight from the artist. I can't promise to continue that. After my day job and all my other obligations, I want to be able to allocate what extra time and energy I can towards producing art for the game. I'll check in on the forums periodically to read requests and comments, and Tarn has said he'll be happy to continue answering those sorts of questions via Future of the Fortress.

Things are going well, and I'm enthusiastic to continue working on the project for a long time! But for me, social interaction like this can be pretty draining, so I'm gonna leave it mostly to the experts. Thanks for your patience and understanding. I want the same awesome-looking game you do, and I'm going to do my best to help make it a reality!

Welcome! I must have said so elsewhere already, but the world map sprites are very pretty :).

Your tileset has always been my favorite from back when I started playing DF, so I'm really excited to see you add your share of work to the mix (definitely like what we've seen so far) ^^

Really dig your map tiles so far. Although it's a different medium entirely, they really reminded me thematically of Civ4/FFH2.

Out of curiosity, how much would you say you have had to modify your personal art style for the sake of matching the game?
