Status of Four Elements

I know it looks like there's not much happening with the Four Elements doll, but it's not true!
Even though there's two of us working on it (me and Azalea), you might think it should take half the time.. but wait! Since it's the four elements, there's actually FOUR dolls in one! So even with twice the people it'll still take twice the time.

Also, when I first divided the status squares up for each element, I filled them in in a really stupid manner, so now I've been waiting for the work to catch up to where I filled in. I think we're finally caught up.

Aaaalso, as you may or may not know, I live in Vancouver which just happens to be hosting the Olympic Winter Games. There's soooo much to do all over town! And even going to events is not as expensive as you'd think... My boyfriend has been to 3 hockey games, and I've been to a hockey game and the men's curling semi-finals (Go Canada!). I might even go up to Whistler and check out some events there this weekend.

Is it true that the news everywhere is calling it the "worst olympics ever"? Cuz there's been hits and misses, but I think the real stars have been the graphics! Consider:
- our mascots are super cute!
- the colour/graphic scheme is very west-coast and very now (all the stuff you see in the blue-green shades). At one point I had access to the Olympics graphics database and I was impressed overall (I just hate that helicopter with the dragonfly wings)
- in the Opening Ceremonies, the best parts were the impressive graphics, like the whales or icebergs, or trees.
- the footage you see is amazing! The picture is so sharp.. even the slow-motion is super crisp. And that thing where they super-impose two athletes and show them going at once? Genius!

I feel very privileged to be able to experience this.. it's a lot more fun than anyone saw coming. (I don't think that governments should sponsor Olympics though.. did you know that the Atlanta Olympics were fully funded by sponsorships? It can be done!).
What do you guys think?

  3. Well, most games seem to take a month so it'll be a month for each. I suspect anthro might go faster, while dragon would take a while.

    Which one would you guys like to see done first?

  4. I'm just glad you're doing something with Azelea! I just love Azelea's art work so I'm just pretty happy!

  5. I think what you are doing is great. I am looking forward to it all. Since anothro might not be as long to make, maybe get that one out of the way first? then which ever one does not take as long to make next, etc. This way, when you are making the one that will take the longest, people will be happy with all the newer ones, til that one comes out. Do you understand what I mean? ^.^ Keep up the good work, and enjoy the games while they last!

  7. All very well Ola, but that's no reason for not posting a new blog;p

    If I lived in Vancouver, I would want to go an ice-skating-dancing-competition-thingie (I know my english s***sXD). I am not realy into sports, but this is just soooo beautiful. It seems so easy, but I can bearly stand on iceskates so I know it's notXD

    And ofcourse I can't wait for the spiritmaker:D:D:D

  9. Are any of the new games doll divine "classics"? and do another puzzle for the next games please

    ReplyDelete
  10. I know some people who went to figure skating. I stayed away myself because I knew it would be in demand and therefore expensive XD

    None of the games with preview pics are Doll Divine Classics... The Elements one will have ~half of the artwork by me so it sort of qualifies ;P
    Avatar, Star Trek, and Sari Maker will be DD Classics :)

  14. Haha, what happened there?

    If you guys have something weird like this happen just e-mail me and I'm able to remove comments :) ola.rogula@gmail.com

    Anthro = anthropomorphic; giving something (usually animals) human characteristics. In this case it's more of a human with animal characteristics: a cute girl with different ears and animal features and nice clothes.

    Nesty is the name of the artists' character.. it's gonna be like a saloon-style girl :)

  19. It would be awesome if after you were done the games you plan to do you could make an Alice in Wonderland game!

    ReplyDelete
  20. That would be pretty neat.. especially if I had done it before the movie release.. but now I missed that boat and have a huge backlog so it's possible, but not for a while.
