VectorBurpQuest 5, Beauty and the Beast Studies, Shooty Skies Comic, Blocking myself from Social Media more & Breath of the Wild Zelda Spoiler Rambles so far [MAR2017]

Leonie's small blog island says hullo! (:

Here's another infamously long blog post ;D

Get comfortable! A pleasure to have your company. ^o^

Whether you're invisible or imaginary! But imagining that you're here gives me temporary warm fuzzies at least! Someone reads these! GASP! :')

    Let's go together! Journal Time.

    Aloy on Confidence from Horizon: Zero Dawn
    I loved this quote because I relate...either I'm silent because I'm not confident (which is most of the time) or that I am confident but I want to prove it by doing than talking :0

    I watched a lot of this game as I worked and I finished it!! :D She's becoming quite a dry sassy lady as she goes along the journey and not someone gaping at all the novel things around her anymore as she explores the world.
    Really pretty game and predictable but solid narrative.

    Spoiler thoughts later down below after the Breath of the Wild Spoiler Ramble section! :D

    Leonie's small blog island says hullo! (:

      One Year Mighty Games Anniversary Super Listen Mode Comic, Melbourne Global Game Jam 2017 Super Reflection, Chinese New Year Shooty Skies, Mulan Studies & Vulnerability/Empathy/Shame/"Not Feeling Good Enough" [JAN2017]

      Leonie's small blog island says hullo! (:

      Another SUPER long post!

      You're used to this by now, right? ;D
      Otherwise, you don't need to be here haha
      Just...shoo! I'm not forcing you to read ;)

      It's been a mixture of feelings but it's been going alright (: 
      And that's to be expected; who is "happy" all the time ;D

        Let's go Journal Time!

        SuperListenMode Special: 1 year Mighty Anniversary
        I have no idea what Baby Chicken said but the sentiment is there ;D

        I don't think it even knows the answer to my question! I do want a Chirpy Baby Crossy Chicken though ;D
        But yeah this is not official Crossy Road or Shooty Skies art in the slightest. Hey, official art does not look like this at all if you know anything about the games haha
        It's my personal SuperListenMode Special ;)

        Feb 3rd - my little anniversary that only I probably care about! :D I'm not going to reflect on things since I did that in the last blog post. Here features just a mix of Crossy Road, Shooty Skies stuff I helped with in the past year (except Disney Crossy things I did since I didn't want Disney Intellectual Property take over the Mighty Games focus). I helped create Baby Chicken, Shooty comics and a few other characters ^o^ haha

        I don't know what's next for me 100% but at the moment I'm pretty much helping out with Disney Crossy and sometimes Shooty Skies and Crossy Road and striving to learn about vector arting. To clear things up, I haven't been involved with Charming Keep thus far (well if I was it didn't end up being in game) or any other project beyond that so I direct you to the incredible & stylish art of Scott/cronobreak :0! Hey it's been out a few days ago too! It's been a long time in the making; a lot of people worked hard on it so do check the game out! (:

        If fantasy charming cute idle clickers is your sort of thing, do try it!
        Make money, to build your towers...to save the Prince Charmings :0
        I think that's how it goes! ;D I'm playing it at the moment...and I'm just tapping on stuff haha

        Reminder I did a comic when I first started at Mighty:
        http://tumblr.leonieyue.com/post/138555763510/todays-my-1st-day-as-a-junior-artist-at-mighty Gosh those were the days when I was not confident *at all* how I would fit in or help out or know what I can do. Now it's slightly better while I'm still working on everything in general :') I still don't know what I'm doing; so many things I don't know how to do.

        All the same, terribly grateful I'm at Mighty and I'll just keep doing my best!
        And maybe I'll keep doing these comics on a yearly basis haha

        Why do I art anymore? Three years of Burp! 2016 Reflection + 11 months at Mighty Games [NOV&DEC2016]

        Leonie's small blog island says hullo! (:

        It's been almost 2 months since a blog post! How have you been?

        Turns out I'm staying at blogger for a long while yet! ;D

        And this is one of those "reflecting about 2016 and what I'll focus on in 2017" kind of personal posts. No specific large goals though because 2017 is just a marker in time - another day in front of another as per usual for me. (:

        So strap in on long ~12K words of ramblyness!

          Let's go crazy! Journal Time.

          Fun Arting, Freedom and Creativity
          Not that I'm there yet but through my actions and art I hope to leave positive and hopeful things behind me without looking back wherever I go like Amaterasu does in Okami ^o^ 

          Such a wonderful, long but satisfying game :D
