TIL there is a dialect of Racket that compiles to the Ethereum virtual machine.......... called Pyramid Scheme.

This is wonderful.

Today I did a side sprite of my wizard character with of which I'm relatively proud. Next up: animated side walking loop.

Also, I revisited some bits of the front-facing animation and figured out a way of making the back of the cape/coat visible thanks to my SO (who is into clothing and fashion), so I'll be updating that animation at some point, too.

It still feels like baby steps, but is nice to be able to show results 💪

So, I took my wizard mugshot, made a 16x32 front-faced sprite, and then went head and made my first ever — Still a long way to go and learn how to make the best use possible to but it already feels like I am already learning new things. Probably next I'll try making a side-facing walking loop for the same character.

Ouch, I keep forgetting to put half an hour every other day to do some pixel art. Maybe next I'll try to turn the wizard I did last into two 16x16 tiles to make a classic 16x32 character sprite as seen in countless RPGs 🤔

It's unbelievable that I have known about for 20 years, yet I never got to add its RSS feed to my news reader. Until now.

me, whenever someone I haven't spoken to in ages gets in touch out of the blue: this is utterly delightful, and I wish this sort of thing happened more!

me, whenever I'm thinking about talking to someone I haven't spoken to in ages: they don't remember me, they would hate me if they remembered me, this intrusion into their lives would definitely be unwelcome

"Everything we do to make it harder to create a website or edit a web page, and harder to learn to code by viewing source, promotes that consumerist vision of the web.

Pretending that one needs a team of professionals to put simple articles online will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Overcomplicating the web means lifting up the ladder that used to make it possible for people to teach themselves and surprise everyone with unexpected new ideas."


Here's a 32x32px sprite with the face of a wizard which I just made with for the sake of relaxing a few minutes:
