Due to Malkin's comment on my recent bibble, I decided to post a list of the projects I have been working on or have been wanting to work on. I am hoping this will help me get more of these projects done. Sometimes I just need a friendly reminder to remind me to work on them, so feel free to poke me for progress updates on the various projects.

Warning, some of the list might not make sense since I sometimes slip into shorthand without realizing it when writing notes like this, so feel free to ask me to extend the description of an entry on this list. Some of the list is still incomplete & needs to be expanded after I find or remember the information I need for those sections. The order in which the projects will be finished is random. They are numbered to help keep track of them only.

Suggestions for improving the list are welcome. Other comments, questions & jabber are also welcome. [ntongue]

4. Sprites for the Chione plants & critters (Lots of possibilities here, just got to find the various suggestions to add them to this list)


5. Fix the issues for the darklight plant sprite. Finished


6. Additional sprites for the the Winery Ruins metaroom.(Already finished the day & night backgrounds for it, now I just need the stuff to fill it.)
- Juice/wine press, it would be nice if it could work similar to the Ice Cream Machine.
- Growing grapevines
- Various bottles, jugs, casks & glasses for holding, storing & dispensing the juices & wines.
- Other plants for making wine or juice out of.


7. Tea set that works similar to the Ice Cream Machine. - in progress -


8. Growing lemon tree.


9. Other various critters & plants inspired by the Arctic Survivor game.
- Ice lemon tree
- cattail plants
- ice carrots - finished

- creepy evil rabbit thing that chased Borgetta


10. Finish the metaroom backgrounds inspired by the Arctic Survivor game plus the critters, plants & other things that were going to be in those rooms.
* Borgetta's safe cave that was buried by the avalanche
- some type of small bat like flying critters
- a heat & fruit producing moss
- crystal crabs for the shallow pond
- glowing shrimp for the cascading ponds
- box of emergency supplies that was left in the cave (filled with tea, cheese, biscuits & other food)
- Laura's tea making supplies (teapot, tea cups, tea box) - in progress

- various sea weeds & kelp plants
- seals
- seaweed ball for a toy
- small floating chunks of ice that can also be used for toys
* Deep ocean abyss (I had so many ideas & sketches for this one that I never got to work into my posts) - Finished
- glowing squid
- lots of really creepy looking glowing fish & eels
- steam vent pillars & the black smoke clouds that come from them


11. Various fruit, flower & seed sprites for adding to the patch plants for the Garden Box. (Some of the ideas mentioned previous could be used for this as well.) - First batch finished

- Bio-hazard containment room
- Bakery room, complete with oven that works like the Ice Cream Machine.
- need to finish putting together the rest of the list for this


13. Other metaroom backgrounds that I want to make at some point.
- a large swamp based metaroom (it is sketched out, I just need to make it)
- a really dangerous room with traps & bones everywhere
- a ridiculously huge metaroom, it's more of a world than a metaroom, the sketch is made, it just needs to be refined & finished.
- a nursery maze that can be used for an extended IQ test.
- need to find the rest of the sketches & ideas to add to this list.


14. Build a 'Sprite Library' page for my blog that contains links to all of my finished & unclaimed sprite sets to make it easier for people to find the sprites they need for various projects.


15. Toy & possibly other food or plant sprites for another of Grendel Man's secret projects. Also Survivor inspired.

Don't be too sure about that. The to-do list for KT looked something like this when I first started. [nwink]

Just scanning briefly because I'm supposed to be working, but I'm curious to see what this "secret project" is.

Unless Grendel Man decides to spoil it himself, you probably won't find out what the secret project is until I finish those sprites & Grendel Man finishes coding the project. [ntongue]

I think you can do it! Maybe to make things easier, divide the smaller tasks from the more difficult, time consuming ones, and knock the easy stuff out of the way. :)

Thats a amazing lot of wonderful ideas and stuff you got ongoing,Mea! Im sure you can do it : D
Im a spriter myself and love to do sprites,as well look at others sprite artworks,and I do adore your'se,Mea!

I sort of feel like I can see myself in this,not realy in term of sprites (it's artworks,,creatures projects and other projects Im doing),thought they sort of dangle somewhere on thart long list of mine as well lol XD

I actuly do a heavy long list now as we speak - trying to clear my ever so long list of Art I should have posted years ago,but kept pilling up,ugh X_X'
that and some other stuff I need to finish - I sometime feel like my Life is not long enough for me to acomplish everything I wish for,but hey - I do try ^^'

I think all the things you listed sound quite impressive and Im sure you be able to tackle them :3
I am with Panda,Breaking down the tasks like she said could be a good help for you maybe?

Best wishes of luck from me that you will make it!
You allready done a lot of progress on various sprites before! ^^

*is going to bookmark this topic and cheking in now and then,who knows? Maybe there is some stuff thats been done by then : D )

Thanks for all the comments everyone, seeing them does help keep me interested in & focused on getting these sprites done.

lol... I think over half of the items on that list are either inspired by or tie in with Survivor: Arctic.

I have a pretty good idea which of those projects will be a bit easier to finish, in fact, a lot of the projects on that list are smaller ones. As long as they don't involve animations, the plant & fruit projects will be fairly easy ones to finish. Some of the metaroom backgrounds will be fairly easy to finish as well. It's mainly the critters & the projects that need animations that are going to take me longer to finish.


- - - - - - - - - -

Currently in progress - Sea pen

- Growth stages outlined, & partly colored, shading in progress.
- Fruit, seeds & vendor sprites still need to be sketched out.

Ugh.... Saturday & Sunday I almost never have time to work on sprites, but I could have used some pokes on the other days to get myself working on these again. I am way too easily distracted. [ntongue]

- Progress update - Sea pen


This is where I currently am at with the sea pen...


- Alternate colors for the plant are set up & ready to be used.
- Still need to finish the fruit growing stages & the decaying stages for the main (plant?). Will be super easy once the fruit sprites are finished.
- The shape of the fruit & seeds still needs to be figured out & sprited.
- Vendor still needs to be sprited as well.

Quick update : The seed has been finished, now working on the vendor or fruit.


Just a quick question for everyone, which of the non-Sea Garden projects would you like to see me work on once I finish the sea pen? Just taking suggestions for which of my projects to work on next. [ntongue]

I'm also interested in the Survivor stuff. However, out of all of them, I'm most interested in the Ember Reef (and the Deep Abyss, but I think you already know that).

Hmmmm.... So... the tea set, the coalberry from the ember reef set & the ice lemon tree. Sounds like a pretty nice mix to choose from for the next project. Not to mention the flower & fruit from the ice lemon tree could also be turned into a patch plant for the Garden Box. Same with the fruit from the coalberry.
This will be interesting once I finish the fruit for the sea pen.

All base sprites except the fruit detritus sprites have been finished. After finishing those sprites, all that's left is getting the sprites positioned correctly & getting them saved & posted on my blog.

4. Sprites for the Chione plants & critters (Lots of possibilities here, just got to find the various suggestions to add them to this list)

I think this is great, snow-themed critters and plant are something which seems to be lacking.

If you need ideas, the wildlife from the Star Wars world of Hoth, which is an icy world, could serve as an inspiration. This animal in particular I think would be a good idea: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Hoth_hog

It is a purple hog which is adapted to arctic life; perhaps you could make one by editing the sprites of the C3 Grazer.

Okay, currently working on the #7. Tea set sprites. Here's the preview of what's currently finished for it -


Actually, I've been stuck on it for about a week now...

I'm just not sure if I should leave it as is, or if I need to add some extra things or not. I thought about adding a touch of ice to the bottom to make a second tea pot for making ice tea, but I'm not sure if that would just be making things more complicated than they need to be.

Other than maybe cleaning up the dark pixels around the edges, I'm just not sure what to do at this point. I mean, I don't know whether or not I should make some tea cups as well, or leave them off so that anyone who wants to add recipes can add whatever type of cup they want. Regular teas, ice teas, medicinal teas, all of them could have different glasses pending on what they are. Sigh, I'm just confused at this point, what should I do?....

Hehe. Looks like an idea I've had brewing (bada-bing!) in my head for a while, about a tea making system similar to the quirky cookie machine.

The pot looks nice. Perhaps it could benefit from a slight shrinking. Personally, I'd make it about 2/3 of the current size.

Well, that didn't go as planned. I got the Ice plum sprites finished before the Ice lemon sprites were even started & before the tea set sprites were finished.

Plum Insanity....

Yeah.... definitely went just a bit crazy with the plums. [ntongue]

Anyone who wants to turn the plums into agents can go right ahead, that's what I make my sprites for after all. [ngrin] For anyone & everyone to use.

Yup, still working on the list, I'm just way too easily distracted from it. I got the sketches for the next set of sprites ready, just got to stop forgetting to dig out the scanners so I can get the sketches into the computer to start work on them.
