Studio Update #103 - Glazing ceramic plates and Questing for Stoken

in Alien Art Hive3 months ago (edited)


red, white, black, and white underglaze applied to these plates made by Aaron Becker.


The glaze I applied is Iron Lustre. I will go over this with clear glaze to augment the bumps left behind by the underglaze. It should be smooth when they are done so that food doesnt get stuck in the bumps when these plates are used.

I havent been painting but I really need to paint. I am writing this update to remind myself. There is an art fair coming up.

Quest for stoken is coming along. It is insane how far I have come on this game. When I get something to work it feels so good like landing a skate trick taken 100 tries.


The space level is now level 2 after you go into the rocket ship.

I animated a 360 flip for the jump attack but i will also consider using this animation for a choose(s_player_kickflip, s_player_treflip) second jump animations.

I figured out how to code the bonfires to kill the enemies when the bonfire is lit but i still have to figure out how to ONLY have them damage the enemy when the specific instance of the fire is lit and not have all the bonfires on the screen turn deadly even when they are not lit.

the kickflip second jump works perfectly now as i fixed the code.

    sprites_array[states.JUMP] = s_player_kickflip;
    if image_index >= image_number - sprite_get_speed(sprite_index)/room_speed{
        image_index = 4;

if on_ground() {
    jumps = jumps_initial;
    if jumps < 2 kickflip = true;

You will have to try the game and see for yourself!

Do you think gnars would fund a creative arts grant including quest for stoken?

what if i made a gnars boss in the pyramid?


inside the pyramid is getting kind of psychedelic.

matter is distored inside the pyramid so every mark on the screen leaves a tracer. This is done by not setting a background. I used tiles to cover up the rest of the background outside the pyramid so you only experience this inside the pyramid.

The chicago level now has a moving train and bus

new music for space levels one and two and new song for pyramid level.

the main character has been updated to look like the guy on the cover.

thank you @gnarip12345


theres an infinite amount of stuff to add but the game is getting close to being somewhat finished as a short game.

i might be able to add grind tricks to the game.

when i get it to a place i can stop working on it for a while I am going to port it for web and host it on my website for you guys to play so that you don't have to download Opera Browser.

I love it so much ! Keep grinding !

Dude, you are a badass! This is so cool.

Dear @web-gnar,
Your support for the current HiveBuzz proposal (#199) is much appreciated but it will expire end of December!
May we ask you to review the new proposal (#248) and renew your support so that our team can continue their work?
You can support the new proposal on Peakd, Ecency, /
or using HiveSigner.
Thank you!

My previous @v4vapp proposal has expired. I have a new one which is running but unfunded right now. I'm still running @v4vapp and all my other services but I may have to increase the 0.8% fee to 2.0% if I continue to be unfunded.

Please consider asking your friends to vote for prop #244 or consider unvoting the HBD stabilizer explained below.

For understandable reasons in the current crypto climate it is harder to get funded by the DHF, I accept this so I'm asking a wider audience for help again. I will also redraft this proposal with more details (coming soon). I'm also looking for other funding sources.

Additionally you can also help with a vote for Brianoflondon's Witness using KeyChain or HiveSigner

If you have used I'd really like to hear your feedback, and if you haven't I'd be happy to hear why or whether there are other things you want it to do.

  1. The bar to be funded is set by the HBD Stabilizer, the more votes that has, the more votes @v4vapp needs to be funded. If you want to reconsider supporting that proposal and unvote it, that would also help me (and others so you have to weigh this choice.)
