…I made this for a reason and I completely forget what that reason was, but I still like it anyway: https://mastodon.social/media/JcEjF8e55tvzEH4Hjtg
I was negotiating a contract since February to support my work on my open source C to Rust translator (https://github.com/jameysharp/corrode), but last week I learned that the client painted themselves into a corner in which they couldn't legally let me do work for them in the open. (Don't ask.) Hell no.
I really want to work on Corrode. Should I try Patreon or similar? Any rewards I can think of are things I'd do for free. I just want a recurring tip jar for those who can afford to chip in…
I've always wanted to decorate my home as if I were an NPC in an indie game, so I also was working on doing some stencils for geometric hanging flags tonight. I like the design, but I discovered I can't skimp on the stencil materials. Next attempt coming soon. https://mastodon.social/media/obqnyFn0Vtah2gRyW-0 https://mastodon.social/media/s6H1LCAKCZ2BiPvlVu8
I haven't had a lot of time for art-related stuff recently, but today I worked on a tiny Haskell library for quick-and-dirty algorithmic pixel art: https://mastodon.social/media/xrRX3SwMRu1vOqHPId4
…this is the prettiest bug I've had so far in this project: https://mastodon.social/media/87VMErGwu3RKySP2buQ
I'm not 100% in love with this art style—it's kind of bland—but it works pretty well for prototyping, at least. https://mastodon.social/media/-BgA1vRhlI-YUV-3PqY
I've thought in the past about making a vaguely Animal Crossing-inspired gardening game, so I've started writing a prototype in Löve and working on rough-draft pixel art for it: https://mastodon.social/media/vq3n8I4Sua4qzEIZCnk
…been a while since I did any pixel art work, so I practiced with some fake video game tiles: https://mastodon.social/media/60yiQaSWFpBrYkFFX6U
Something I've wanted to do (on my massive, massive project list) is to write a tabletop RPG sourcebook that doesn't include rules or mechanics, just world-building: specifically, details about peoples, their languages, their traditions, their cuisines, and so forth. But, y'know, something more nuanced and interesting than "Elves ❤️ Trees; Dwarves ❤️ Rocks".
A bit late, but here's my #introduction:
I'm Getty: I work as a computer science researcher, and I've got backgrounds in linguistics and in PL theory. On a non-computer note, I also do writing (both fiction and technical) and art (mostly ink, block-printing, and pixel art).
I also post bad jokes as @aisamanra on Twitter, post some art at http://thefireattheshoemakersestate.tumblr.com/, and write sporadic posts about interesting semi-technical topics at http://what.happens.when.computer/
Don't listen to the graph paper in your head!
