update! [09 Nov 2006|01:18am]

[ mood | dull ]



What do you think of something like this (better, of course, this took me about ten minutes) as a new background/layout thinger for the Shy site?

We're redesigning (slowly) and we have an actual planned process now, but can't do anything, really, until after my finals. (about a month)

I'm going to work on a fanservicey picture for you guys this weekend (I am putting off a rather large assignment that is due tomorrow, but I don't really have time for much more than this entry), so that will be a sort-of update, but I figure it's fair to tell everyone we aren't dead and let you know what's going on.

1: We aren't dead. Srsly. I'm in school and that's pretty close but we aren't dead. I really want to work on page nine, I'm HOPING we can get something done over Thanksgiving break but knowing dP we'll have a project over that time, expect page nine at Christmas by latest. This summer the plan is to build up a backlog of comics so at the rate of one update a week, we might be able to continue updates during school even without drawing new pages. Oh, and every five pages (cover, 5, 10, 15, etc) will be in colour. :)
2: Ben got fired. I'll spare you messy details but that's how it is. It's a priority once we have time to get his stuff out of Shy, out of courtesy and just to make us more comfortable working on our story again.
3: In Ben's place, more or less, we have "hired" my roommate, Tom. He goes by "Shionyr" or "Luigi" online, and he will be helping with the d20 sourcebook we're working on, as well as doing all the backgrounds for the comic--he's a skilled artist and you'll notice the change right away. :)
4: Working on a new site design as you saw above. Shin is our Boo and sort of our mascot, so you will probably be seeing a lot of him.
5: It probably won't be until this summer but I've got the hang of 3D, finally. I'm going to figure out how to import meshes into The Sims 2 and make a full Shy set, because I think that's neat. I know a few people play, so...
6: Butt.

Just my plans (excluding step six), we'll see how it goes. :)

PS Oh, and I updated the LJ--go look! shycomic

[ mood | omfg eee ]



So Facing Costumes guy sucks at replying to emails but OH MY GAAAWD can he ever make shyguy masks. I just got mine, the picture is Tom modelling it with my muslin robes for Otakon. It is a perfect replica of what we were intending, he even put detailing on the "leather" strap.

pix plzCollapse )

I hope to add this to the "extras" section of Shy! For a bit over $100 he can make these, as he now has the mold.

AND HAY if anyone else got theirs, please post pics of you wearing it!! I want to see!! :D

LumiHeihou: i have organised sim pictures should i post them
Zer0 Hunt3r: dooo iiiit
LumiHeihou: k

Just so you know this is her fault. :3 I spent a day trying to get sims that looked a LOT like the Shy characters. I used picture reference! Then I moved them into Pleasantview to fuck with the Sims2 "canon" characters.


Nori doesn't know.Collapse )

Teremo World Map [27 Jun 2006|01:56pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]



So it's not a lot but we've gotten a basic world map of Teremo. There's the main continent where Shy takes place, "Dinosaur Land" of SMW, which is actually upside down so it attaches to Yoshi's Island, and then some generic other landmasses we can use if needed.

Thought you might like to see. :D I'm going to work on a "this is what they know" map later, and I'll post that here too if you like.

Oh, and I have a ton of new sim-pictures, and I'm thisclose to having 100% perfect Shy sims to upload for you.

Masks [27 May 2006|09:04am]

Hi Luminance,

I understand with the wear of the mask, how it has to be adaptable. We have heard from one of the orders, and they are requesting the foam nose bridge and forehead piece that I suggested, so what I'll so is include those pieces with the assembly detached so you can attach them and remove them whenever you want using rubber cement, without compromising the interior look of the mask.

The straps will be made of a very soft neoprene as well, so they would be comfortable and form- fitting.

Everyone who is interested in the mask at this time can write separately for payment instructions and questions. Thanks again. We can work out further details as they arise.

Tyson


So he thought of removable interior pieces before I could mention it, yay!

Costuming update!! [22 May 2006|11:11pm]

rapierice
I got a reply from Facing Costumes today!

Hi Luminance,

Let's say that all orders paid for by June 10, for the July 20 completion date, will be given the discount. Since the orders are small, they will need to be paid in full in advance through paypal ttabbert AT facingcostumes DOT com.

As for the design of the mask, I understand you need them crafted in a very specific fashion and appreciate that you need the closures and straps custom made to suit your design. As for the inside of the mask, what kind of a texture or color do you need?

Tyson


Okay guys, so I don't know paypal but the price, including shipping, for a shyguy mask one-size-fits-most will be $US100!

So I'm BORED.

This means you guys FINALLY get a look at my (in)famous quotes.txt file. Anything (mostly) Shy related and relatively spoiler-free is going up for the world to see. Oh, and if you want explanations, those cost extra. :D

In chronological order...Collapse )

bonus: quotes from the AIM!Shy charactersCollapse )

And finally, the "Bad Ideas Pile"... the list of Ben's INSANE ideas and us saying NO to him.

NO.Collapse )

The end!

AS SEEN IN SHY [09 May 2006|11:11pm]

rapierice
OKAY GUYS! Who's going to Otakon, and who wants a SHYGUY MASK? I've talked with Facing Costumes and it'll be around $120 a mask. They'll look ceramic but won't break, and will have a leather strap, fitted to be worn around your head, arm, neck, whatever.

his letter to meCollapse )

What I am going to ask is that instead of giving me my mask for free, to instead split the "free" between everyone involved, so we all get a discounted price. I haven't emailed him back yet (doing that after this), but he is a great guy and chances are he will agree!

What I need from you is to know who is interested, and who definitely wants one, and I need to know ASAP!

Thanks, and crossposted to rapierce and shybeta

Page seven is up!

I accidentally toned before resizing this time, so I resized, intending to see how bad the moire was, and to my surprise it looked WAY BETTER. Apparently we've hit onto the magic number that will resize screentones well! No more strobing screentones from now on, yay!

According to the Shy site admin thingie, we got a hit from this page.

:x????

If any of you guys can find where they linked us, you can have a real live internet cookie. I scanned it and it's still a big wtf to me. We're also getting hits off the Bob and George forums but I can't find a link there either.

Page six is done, but I have to wait for someone who knows about FTP to get online before it can be posted. It's late and we have noooo excuse, so, sorry! D: You see, the new Sims 2 expansion just came out and I was building robots. *pummelled*

I'm going to try to get page seven out this week so we can get everything LOOKING like we update on time at least. :p At least this was the last page of "little kids being chased through a forest/very tall grass."

Page five is up! Maybe! Anyway it's uploaded, and should be up very soon as of me writing this! Took a bit longer than I would have liked but HAY IT'S MONDAY so I'm safe. :D Full colour and I basically PAINTED the stupid background so yeaaah. :D Page six next Monday, we're almost to the part with ADULTS and DIALOGUE. (shocking I know)

Page four is done! One catch: Ben and Shea are offline and I don't know how to upload. Watch as I am pummelled for posting a teaser! *pummelled*

I think I'm going to try and upload ANYWAY though. Rest assured that it will be up Monday, whether or not I'm the one posting it. You can expect page five by next Monday, owing to the fact that it's a coloured page I've been looking forward to for ages, and that there are no stupid close-ups of FEET.

All of that plus a fanfic. You guys rock. <3 If there's anything you guys have made that isn't up there that you want us to put up, tell us! We've tried to get it all but it's hard and sometimes we forget. XD

I'm starting on inking page four, and I'm really bored. >_> But I have been meaning to ask, is there anything in particular you'd like to see on the site? And questions you'd like answered on the FAQ? Anything? :D We're sometimes lost as to what to put up, so it'd be nice to know!
