So big news! I just finished my almost 4 year long project: Niels Feynman‘s time traveling adventures, book 1 of 4. I so happy to have concluded that. I originally intended to be done in 2 years, but life had other plans!
Thank you everyone for joining me on this journey, for all your support and help, for everything! It meant a lot for us that you were there cheering us on, and of course the donations.
We’re very happy to have finished and we’re looking forward to future projects so stay tune as we’ll also be updating all our shops with new prints and merchandise.
Scripts for books 2-4 are almost done, I will start sketching book 2 soon. And production will begin once we raise some starting money. Until then we’ll be posting on Patreonconcept art, character sheets and the rest.
The Ghibli town mod for Stardew Valley is progressing, we finally have a main map working, now we have to fill in the buildings, NPCs and events.
We still have a long way to go, but I can say we’re still on track. For more check out the video bellow:
Sorry for the late update but it’s been hard to find help with making this mod as I am just a graphic artists and any game related stuff has also a programming component.
After 5 brave souls attempted to make the mod and failed, scampering off once they saw they couldn’t tame the beast know as modding in Stardew Valley, one hero has risen.
So long story short, I have collaborated with Trentpreviously on the New fish mod and we wanted to ad new fishing areas for people, because +90 fish wasn’t enough for us and with so many fish the spawning areas weren’t spawning properly anymore. We had to create new homes for our fish.
I had previously worked on many other mods with people, each group had ambitions ideas about desert or forest expansions and of course my Ghibli town as well. But sadly the ever changing landscape of the codding in SDV was just to much for them and many projects died in pre-production.
Thus I decided to take things slow and greed with Trent that we should first do a small island before we try and do the Ghibli mod, or the Oriental Mod (Desert mod).
The island has a middle aged mermaid selling fish related items in her shop. She will be in a relationship with Willy and a friend of Linus. We plan to give her heart events and anything else we will need for all my grand plans for the Ghibli mod. This little island mod will be our guinea pig for the Ghibli Town mod.
Thank you to Eimie and everybody else who agreed to donate their textures to this mod as it has greatly decreased my work load. The full list of modders who have donated textures or from who I took inspiration in making my own version of their aesthetics see here.
Take care everyone and don’t forget to endorse and give kudos to all the awesome modders in the SDV community! Show them some love so they stay motivated (see if any need financial help as well). A lot of projects die because people think nobody cares or the crazy people harass them. Both I and Trent have met some weirdos that have thrown insults and bigoted slurs at us and we are not the only ones. It’s just that we are a bit older maybe, and have a better understanding of the toxicity in any community.
In any case SDV is one of the best communities out there and thank you to everyone who strives to keep it awesome and please continue to support the modders as they keep the community going with new content every month.
And of course thank you to Eric Barone for making the game, Chuckle fish for connecting us and we look forward to all the new content from everyone.
For those of you new to my work, I am a graphic artists and I make comics, games and tutorials and I’m also a big fan of Stardew Valley.
I wanted to do a vacation spot in the desert for when winter comes to Pelican town, but a lot of mods weren’t working and I wanted more space as well. So, while searching for other mods that may work I came across the desert expansion mod and it sadly seemed like it was abandoned.
I played with the idea in my head, of a desert expansion mod, for a while and people also kept telling me how they loved my farm and if, jokingly, I could be their gardener.
Therefor I started working on both mods, just the graphics, while still looking for code that worked and one lucky day I came across 13, a modder on the Chuckle fish forums, who was trying to maintain several abandoned mods that greatly expanded the SDV world and he was actually able to get in touch with Yama, the one who did the original desert expansion mod!
Click play to see the video about the two mods I’m working on.
So we are now working on a ridiculously big desert map and we have so many ideas, if we can get half done I’ll be super happy. When it’s done I will compile a list of who worked on the project and other things they did as well as who donated assets to us and helped us finish faster. I do recommend you go check my SDV mod list as well, there is great stuff there from very talented people.
And here is some concept art, now this will most surely change because of the following reasons:
– it didn’t fit/looked good
– the idea was scraped
– I didn’t get an answer regarding permission to use so we did something else
– it was a placeholder and never meant to be final, but only to get everyone on the same page
– we couldn’t get something to work
– we got a better idea etc.
Feel free to join us, chat will be enabled on all three channels. Streaming artist submission are now closed but you can always message me and join the Facebook group to see when the next event is held and submit for the next one.
For those of you that don’t know what a #QuickDrawCollab is, here is the summary of it:
It’s an event where a couple of artists get together to quickly draw what the audience asks them. It’s the illustrator’s version of improvised theater, and it can be quite fun if you knows the artists and want your fan-fiction brought to life. It’s a great way to get to know your favorite artists and meet new ones.
So in the last month I have gotten several requests for behind the scenes and tutorials in regard to how I mod Stardew Valley the RPG and I started to make those tutorials. Feel free to leave me questions or suggestions. I love hearing from you.
We’re happy to announce we’ve concluded chapter 2 of our comic series Niels Feynman’s time traveling adventures! We’re going to have a short break while we share some of the awesome fanart we’ve been sent and after that we’ll resume with new story pages from chapter 3.
You can still send us your fanart, we’re always happy to see it. And if you want to see the pages ahead of time then follow us on Youtube as we stream how we make the pages, every week.
And for those of you who are new to our blog here are some samples from the past year.
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day!
Hi everyone and welcome to my blog, today I want to share with you a little hobby I’ve been working on. Over the last month I’ve been working on modding my Stardew Valley farm because I wanted to learn more about making video games in preparation for my own projects and SDV is a game I’ve enjoyed playing a lot. I do recommend you pick it up as well, since it covers a lot of game genres.
I never thought I would play a pixel art game but it’s story is similar to Ernest’s storyso I decided to watch some play-throughs on Youtube and I was hooked. Here are some screen shots, I’ve modified mods from Nexus Mods because I couldn’t find the exact thing I wanted so I made a combination of multiple mods and on occasion I made my own since I couldn’t find what I wanted.
And bellow you have my YT playlist with the tours, tutorials and play-thoughs. More videos are coming soon so subscribe so you don’t miss them.
Thank you to everyone for a wonderful year! Thank you for all your support, it means a lot to us and keeps us motivated to continue our story. Also extra story page coming up tomorrow on Tapas so stay tuned. (~_^)
Bellow you can see the step by step process in making the illustration. Lineart done as always by the talented Jun Fender and coloring done by me, while texts will be translated by my friends, see the partner page here.
Thanks for being with us on this amazing journey! Much love!
