I've just been pokin' at my head about it. I don't know yet. I'd like to make a wrestling game though.
The process wasn't too bad. It was basically creating the "X" pattern and applying a few emboss and bevel filters. Then I defined that as a new pattern. When you load the sprite, the action will create a new layer and fill it with the pattern. Switching the layer to "Screen" allows the colors to show through. Then some automatic magic wand work happens and removes all the non-colored areas from the work and this is the final piece you get!
It took about 40 minutes from start to finish to get this working.
You might remember our friendly town called Granite Town. Many residents live here, each with their own job to do.
In Granite Town lived a purple owl. He didn't have a name, so the animals just called him the Purple Owl. Unlike all of the other owls in Granite Town, he slept at night and was awake during the day. Near his home was his favorite restaurant, which was run by owls as well. Because of that, it was only open at night and closed during the day.
That didn't stop Purple Owl from eating there everyday. When the clock struck six o'clock in the evening, Purple Owl would be the first one through the door to order his dinner. While it was dinner time for him, it was the restaurant's breakfast time. Purple Owl's dinner was "brinner", which was breakfast at dinner time.
His favorite "brinner" things to eat were pancakes, bacon, and sunny side up eggs.
Ultimately I was having trouble drawing overalls on Danish when he was shaped like a bean. No shoulders!
I also started toying with the idea of only the heads of the animals would be, well, animals. The rest of them would have human like features, namely five-fingered hands and five-toed feet. Still figuring it out.
I should also try writing another story so flesh out Granite Town some more. Maybe something about the amusement center repair shop. That's way cooler than Daniel Tiger's dad who works at the clock tower making clocks.
"Beans also drove a truck, but it was teal and it carried coffee. The coffee wasn't a special bean from a far away place. It didn't have a special flavor made with a secret recipe. It was just coffee and it was always hot."
