This is a blog for me to vent my thoughts and perhaps share a few tips on aspects of media I’m at least somewhat knowledgeable of.
I’m just a 17 year old game designer who loves media, produces music and designs stuff sometimes. Currently living in the UK, England where the sayings about our weather is true – it sometimes gets hot in autumn/winter but snows in spring… it’s pretty wacky at times.
I have 6 months of experience with Lua programming in which I used Corona SDK to make this lil’ thing. But due to platform limitations I’ve decided to switch to Construct 2 which is another powerful 2D game engine which runs on HTML5. Despite this, it requires no coding and works using it’s own event system.
It’ll be nearly a year or two since I first dabbled in FL Studio. I like to think that I’ve come quite far and learned a great deal of new things during this time. With my newfound love of ambient, chillout tunes I’m focusing on creating my own while developing a unique style I can be proud of.
And the design background:
Adobe Photoshop has been my primary design studio for the past 5-6 years or so… it seems like it was much shorter than that but my previous love was with Adobe Fireworks CS4. For some reason I just didn’t understand how to work Photoshop and Fireworks seemed more straight-forward with it’s tools. But with time and internet popularity, I stuck at it and learned of the beauty that is the Pen tool!
With my current game in progress, I’ve noticed however that Photoshop might just not cut this time around for the style of sprites I want to create. Hopefully Adobe Illustrator can help me there. (It feels like Photoshop all over again…)
Anywho, I’m in the process of setting up an organisation for others interested in media and it’s focus is on music, programming and design with an emphasis on community and openness. You can find the site & forums here: http://auqamedia.com/
