ESR art update

September 1st, 2015 by Graph

Hi folks, it’s about time I dropped a report on my progress too.

Pretty much done here, and also converted all the old backgrounds to the new 1280×720 screen resolution. Not only that, several backgrounds got a major overhaul. As one prime example, Hakurei shrine from the demo…

And the new version! Granted, this isn’t just a result of skill improvement over time, but also having the patience to spend more than 2 or 3 hours on a background.

You can expect some new scenes in the final version as well, such as this little marketplace in the Human Village:

Harder to say since the script isn’t all in yet, but out of the stuff that’s currently there it’s like…
60% done
20% CGs from the demo need revising for the new screen res
20% others to do

Updated for the new screen res.

Danmaku + other effects
Old images updated for new screen res, haven’t done the new stuff yet. Not sure how far along it is yet, though I’ll probably get this done quickly at the end like I did before.

Cut-in sprites
Haven’t touched it since the demo. I want to redraw the 5 heroines and Marisa fresh, and the others will probably just get quick edits at best, just because of the sheer size of the cast.

Alright, getting back to it. I’ll endeavor to post more regular updates when I get to the home stretch.

    Simply beautiful. I had a fondness for your old style as it filed me with so much nostalgia but this is definitely an improvement on many fronts.

    I’m currently replaying the demo out of a whim in this short break, and it’s real good to hear that ESR is still on the work. I was afraid that the project was dropped like some of the other things I follow.
    Keep up the good work! Really appreciating the updated arts btw!
