#089. Toki no Tabibito!
January 19th 14:42, (Tokyo)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey guys. As you may know I am a big fan of anime, but not just any old anime, anime mainly from before the year 2000, but maybe even more specifically everything before (and including) the movie 'Metropolis'.

I am often looking for artistic influence that coincides with my own vision of Healing Process: Tokyo and last night I found and watched a fantastic piece of art known as 'Toki no Tabibito'. Here is a digest video of the full movie (spoilers! Maybe just watch the first half):


The amazing anime movies that arose during the 80s around the culture of treasures such as 'Angel's Egg'. 'Neo Tokyo', 'Akira' and 'Robot Carnival' must truly be my favourite string of related works and they are always an endless source of inspiration. Everything hand drawn, everything with exceptional palettes and dark themes... I can't get enough of it! Let me know if you know any more of these via E-Mail at admin@healingprocessgame.com .

Thanks guys, see you again tomorrow!

#088. Artist name change.
January 18th 14:43, (Tokyo)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you might have noticed by my twitter banner and the banners on this site, I have changed my artist name to 'Pixelouix' or 'Sam Louix'! This is just to give myself a bit more of an outstanding name. 'Sam Jones' is easy to forget.




See you tomorrow!

#087. Thoughts on our pregnancy.
January 13th 19:41, (Tokyo)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's 4 months from now that my wife will be giving birth to our child.

I have never had any worries about becoming a father, but having the event so nearby really pushes me to succeed in the projects I am working on. Be it HP:T or my band (auto-coders.com). I want to make the most out of my projects so I can be a father my kids are proud of.

I have to succeed in my pursuits to be a good example to my kid that following your dreams and not folding to the norms of society pays off.

More HP:T content tomorrow!

#086. NPC Art In-Game!
January 16th 12:01, (Tokyo)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the 3 NPCs, the middle old guy and the girl on the left are still very rough. The NPC on the right, Satoshi is about 70% done. These are 3 of 110 NPCs in the game. It takes a while to draw them all as they need different expressions, etc:


And here's a picture of Satoshi's art in-game with the text box! It took me a while but I am going to settle on this design for the text boxes, I like it. Click here to see a larger version.

I'm shooting some more videos today so I'll upload them when they're done. I think it's about time for a new speedpaint don't you? Let me work something out. See you tomorrow.

#085. NPC Avatar x2!
January 15th 22:52, (Tokyo)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heeyy I know I promised 3 but I started making another cutscene animation for the trailer. Sorry!
Here's #16 - Old Man Arakawa and #21 Satoshi. How will Charles help these two in their life? Well... find out by supporting the game!




I think it's time to start introducing some female characters too! All we have is men at the moment, it's becoming a bit of a sausage fest. Well it's Japan so maybe those mini buffet sausages you get.

See you tomorrow!

#084. NPC Progression!
January 14th 10:47, (Tokyo)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the progression of Satoshi!:


I'll finish off his shading tomorrow and also include 2 more NPC avatars! One of the rewards of the Kickstarter campaign will be to have your own character with their quest for Charles in Tokyo. If you have any ideas for a reward you wish to see in the Kickstarter campaign let me know at admin@healingprocessgame.com so I can include it.

See you tomorrow guys! :)

#082. One-Upping + Fernando Ribeiro
January 12th 23:33, (Tokyo)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey guys, I uploaded another video of me talking. I'd love to hear you feedback on the topic of people trying to one up each other constantly.

My friend Fernando Ribeiro is who I read from at around the 13 minute mark and I enjoyed his input in the conversation, he is a digital artist and you can check out his art at deviantart here .

As a side note, he will also be doing the album art for both my band's upcoming EP (the end of this month) and first album (soon) which I have been working on for 2 years!

That's enough of me blabbing on, here's some more of me blabbing on:


As always feel free to E-mail me (admin@healingprocessame.com) about the discussion or come into the Discord group here to join in and chat with our growing family.

See you tomorrow!

Sam

#081. E-Mail Format Fix
January 11th 23:33, (Tokyo)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I fixed the layout of the E-mail updates, as about 50% of people couldn't view them properly.

Sorry if the black was doing it for you, I liked it too but we're doing white now.

I am aware the daily updates can be a chore to read and fill up your inbox so I am thinking of adding a label to the start of each E-mail's title to give you an idea of the context. For example Art // Music // Video etc. so you know whether you'll be interested or not. What do you think?

I'm currently editing another video of myself speaking to the camera, it will be up tomorrow. The following update will be a video of me showing off the layers of the tree art (finally!). I'm also going to start uploading new art from tomorrow!
