I swear, I'm not dead!
Doing those Smash Bros. sprites really got me wanting to get back to working on my backgrounds, and I've been playing through Ocarina of Time 3D in anticipation of Majora's Mask 3D, and that's got me pumped about it too. So why haven't I posted anything?
I know that the ground layout is the most complex I've ever attempted, with so many paths that rise and fall in elevation, crossing over each other in crazy ways. And in spite of that, I feel that it should be something I can do. But every time I sit down to work on it, I end up staring at screenshots and a blank canvas, trying to figure out how to draw out the waterfall entrance, until I eventually have to either do something else or go to bed. I can't tell you how many times I've already done this.
I'm not sure what I have to do here. Maybe I need to try starting from a different point on the map. Maybe I need to shift gears and come back to Zora's River later. But whatever it is I need to do, I need to figure it out and get back to work, because I'm itching to get back to working on my maps.
