Ludum Dare 36 Journal

Monday, August 29th, 2016 3:40 pm

So I joined in half-way through but I got really excited to do most/all of the art for Pickens Inc.’s game.

We’d met a couple of weeks ago and I expressed my ability to do some forms of digital art, he recruited me half-way through the Ludum Dare to fix his bricks… and I just sort of kept going xd.

DAY 1 (For me):

First thing I did as mentioned previously was all of his brick textures/sprites. Then I did the player character sprite, then his walk animation. All of this took me an entire afternoon, I believe I started at 15:30 and finished at 23:45.

Very proud of the walking animation I did!



DAY 2 (For me):

Final day of Ludum dare and I’ve got a few things I still need to do, enemies, jumps and attack animations!

Attack animation completed!


A few hours in, Pickens/Poly has woken up so now I can get some feedback for my work, he likes it!

Took me ages to split up the character’s torso and legs for independant animation. Looks good though.

Made a couple of pedestal-brazier-things, a grey and a blue one. They look mighty pretty if I say so myself.


Wow, this door took me forever! All the variant/frames for it plus just the design and implementation, wow. Took me the better part of 3 hours!

Made an outside/beginning area, took some inspiration from shovel knight, I quite like it.

Realised I needed to update my journal, here it is!

We tried to think of a name, Wik Dungeon, Torch, Ignite… Ig-Knight! … It’s a placeholder.

We found some really cool copyright free 8bit music. Thanks TeknoAxe!
Can’t stop listening to it!

I’ve finished all my major jobs, time to fill in the boring gaps in the dungeon with some aesthetic props/guff.

Done a bunch of paintings and and stuff for filler, helped Pickens map out the levels in the game.

Finished everything I can do, just have to hope Taha can put it all together in time! :)

Working to my first Ludum Dare entry!
