something went wrong with the coding in my prototype


this is what its supposed to look like


but when the character enters the air, it clips through the ground and disappears

I am currently working on fixing this


Edit 1: I have manged to fix the clipping issue,but now when you jump you just hover an inch or two off the ground instead of landing. hopefully I’ll be able to fix this soon


Edit 2: I have made lots of progress on my game, there are now more rooms, and there are enemies that don’t walk off the ledge, I am going to try and work on menus and level design

New Computer

.20160908_102229    I got a new computer during the summer, as my old one stopped working at the beginning of the summer. I ordered the new laptop online from best buy and it took three tries before it ordered correctly. It took two weeks for the laptop to arrive

Today I looked back and reflected on the drawings I had done so far. I rated them via rubric, the things that I judged about the drawing were: creativity, realism, proportion, and originality. The five drawings I rated were: a thermos, a spider web, an apple and my drawings for the science project. Because these drawings were rather amateurish however, none of them scored particularly high. Despite the fact that they aren’t high quality I’m still proud of them.

Today was the day that I did my interview with the artist from Place des Arts. I feel like the interview went quite well, I asked my questions thoughtfully but didn’t take too long and the artist was very nice and answered each question fully. She gave me some good advice and some handouts of certain techniques.

DCD affected my early school life, grade 3 and onwards, because that was the time when you were really learning how to write.  We didn’t really know I had DCD yet, and there was confusion over why I couldn’t write as fast as the other kids.  My LA grade was rarely ever above a C.  It irritated me, what’s wrong with me?  Why can’t I do this like I’m supposed to do?  Is there a reason, am I just not good at writing.  Everyone said my writing would improve in time but it never did.  Around grade 4 was when we went to the doctor to see why, and I was diagnosed with DCD.  I started going to the occupational therapist to work on hand writing, coordination, balance, tying my shoes etc.  Then I got the laptop and it became easier to do assignments.

It also affected my art and drawing skills because my eye/hand coordination to accurately draw.  I just figured I won’t draw then (avoidance) I didn’t think drawing would ever become a big part of my life.
