Shocking Umbra

Hey everyone, I have another pixel art gif for this week. I wanted to animate differently, mostly by using fewer layers. I ended up using 3 layers for this and found the process to be a little easier than my last animation. I’m not sure if this way is better for making games, but I’ll just have to continue experimenting and find what works best for me.

Regarding my game design journey, I was researching which game engine to get into and practice. I think GameMaker is the best choice for me right now. I might make super small Game&Watch esque games to start off and get used to the program.

Lastly, I was really feeling burnt out this week. I was drawing on my iPad, but I just didn’t like anything I made. This week marks 42 of posting something each week. I am so close to my goal of one year so I’m not gonna give up.

That’s all for this week, later!
