I hope you all had a neat New Year's. I had fun myself! Resulted in the further fuckings of my sleep rhythm though.
Anyway like I promised last year, here's that set of drawings I told you about!
It's a set of Sofi doing a crossover with PAYDAY2! Hooray, right?
Sofi's Solo Heist
Sofi's Solo Heist - Taser
Sofi's Solo Heist - Cloaker
Sofi's Solo Heist - Bulldozer
Sofi's Solo Heist - Captain Winters
It was fun and challenging to draw more realistic styled things. I avoided to draw any guns though, because... I'm just bad at that kinda stuff. I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.
There's also this thingy:
Sofi the Fannypack Shareware Version
Because Sofi can never get enough dick attention, it seems.
And since I had very few ideas of what to do with Zu's further costumes regarding her profile images, take this bonus thingy instead!
Delicious Brown Zu
Would fuck, ya? I know ya would!
And I finished up Ellie's costumes finally!

That means I've only got Sixten and Psycho Girl to finish up! Hooray, I'm almost done with these, after who knows how long...
I also recieved a Sixten doodle
from a Cadabra!
Very rare to get Sixten fanarts! So it is nice to see some once in a while! This one reminds me of Jerry Seinfeld though, something with the face... Just reminds me of that.
But alright. Let's talk about 2016. The first half seemed to just disappear from me. I was in some sort of depression state. Made a single short flash. Then I started up Zu & Zeta's Zoological Zone. I wanted it to be a short project, but it turned out to taking a whole lot longer than I expected. Mostly because I thought a simple thing was actually THE
most complicated thing. Or at least, tediuos thing. I also got a fling of inspiration and wanted to make easter eggs for the flash! I got so inspired that I actually made the whole easter egg part BEFORE the main event.
And just when I finished it, my harddrive died. Everything on it was lost. But luckily, I had put that easter egg part in my dropbox for coding purposes, so it made it through unscathed. Incredible luck, for once. If I had lost all of that... I don't think I'd ever want to make anything else ever again. Is enough to make me shudder.
The things I did lost within the main project was just a little bit of basic animation and a new pose for Zu, which I had taken a lot of screenshots of. It was just for me to trace it back up again. I've made quite some progress on it since then, but I hit a point where I just wasn't sure if things looked good enough in motion; I need coding to check if the thing actually animates well. Continuing before I know that would be quite terrible if it turned out I needed to reanimate stuff in the middle of all the progress.
It was at that point that I noticed that it is very difficult to get ahold of people who know to code things in AS3! Since the beginning of december I've been waiting for my main coder to become free enough from school to be able to do some coding for me. So all I can do is wait at this point, and make like... Improvements to side stuff or work on other projects. That's how the ZZZZ situation is like.
And then we've got Butt Bus. A flash I've talked a lot about, ya? Well, since I've decided to made the jump from game-style to movie-style a lot of details have changed. Most noteable is that I plan on using characters from people who've supported and made fan art or similiar things for me. The second thing is that I'll be able to use a lot of more creativity with it! I plan on giving each character a cameo fucking Zara, either solo or with others, depending on what kind of character they are. I've also written up a little script for this... I think I might be overdoing it again, but I guess I'll have to be more efficient on making each scene simple but impactful. And if it turns out to be too much, I'll have to try cut things out and rework parts.
But I need to finish ZZZZ before I start with that! Which will PROBABLY take quite a while at this pace. I hope the time it takes will make it so that it's a good flash, though...
And to further pad out my workpace, I want to make a little collab flash with a certain person for a certain holiday. Using a character that's seldom seen in flashes. Just to get something out in the near future... But we'll see how that goes!
Other things to mention... Remember how I asked about music for ZZZZ? Only one of the four or so people offering their musical talents actually went through with their offer. The one track I got is really good though! So if there's anybody else up for the task, do tell me so! I need at least one more track for the flash, since I want a different track from the easter egg part and the main part.
I can't think of anything else of value to say right now. So I hope this puts some light on what's been going on during last quarter of 2016. And yea I know I'm one day late with the update, but I was really tired yesterday.
So for now, have a jolly time! I'mma go and... Do stuff, I guess.
