I often feel obliged to write something here when there’s nothing to write other than endless meandering dribbles of uninteresting facts about this and that. Today however I decided I would write something, so here’s some text… oh hang on a mo…. I’ve already finished….Oops…
Here’s a pointless sketch about arrows..
The wit that follows will astound, amaze and have you scratching something in bewilderment, hopefully your head but anywhere else is fine…(hang on again.. erm you really should have that looked at don’t you know.. eww looks kind of… infected..doors over there… yep see ya…(phew))
I should remind you , yes you with the wild eyes, iPhone, you phone, we phone, who phone Blobbit is still going strong it’s just on hold until Mark and I finish our contract jobs. Then it’s manic dev time again.. yay taday tomorrow and last week!
Late 2006 I started designing the sprites for Blobbit Push and one of the characters I came up with was a small droid known as a Box Droid which later became a series of droids all based around the same box like design.
With the new game in development and the totally separate but loosely linked book on the back burner I wanted to create some proper art for the Blobbit characters. There are various reasons for doing this but the main reason unquestionably is I just want to see these characters visualised how I imagine them rather than as 48×48 pixel sprites. Of course having proper images also helps to create 3D versions and will also do wonders for marketing the game(s) later on.
