What's done?

Mage animations

In order to finally finish the playable characters, I worked on the animations of the mage character. Here is one of my favourites:

Mage Ice Block

This is the animation of the ice block spell. It creates a massive ice block covering the enemy. Eventually, the enemy freezes and prevents him from attacking.

New backgrounds

This week two new backgrounds were created. I tried to apply my newly gained knowledge in speed painting. There's still a lot to learn though.

sacred forest

The challenge was to use real life images and make them fit the game. Tales of Vastor usually covers self drawn resources, so I had to apply some self drawn images on top of real life images.

Bandit boss refactoring

I was quite unhappy with the anatomy of the bandit boss. Especially, his breast looked weird. Therefore, I modified the breast a bit and added veins, to show his muscular body even more.

Sacred forest map

Last week I drew the sacred forest map on paper. This week, I created the digital version and tried to apply icons used in the actual world map.

This is a cropped version, so there will be more waypoints. The plan is to make a labyrinth with a difficult path. You may want to stock up your potions before entering the sacred forest.

What's next?

  • New animations for the paladin
  • New backgrounds
  • Story implementation
  • Updated alpha version (31st of October)

If you have feedback, you can contact me via mail or direct message whenever you want. Be sure to take a look at Twitter as well, as there are more updates.

Thank you!
