Pinned toot

re- since it's been awhile!

i'm vivaizix, or sarah. πŸ„ i'm a 27 year old art student looking to study game design / new media. i make videogames, sculptures, illustrations (ink, paint, digital), comics, and i write.
mixed media is my jam. i talk a lot about my personal progress, and concepts in art and games.
you can check out my videogames on itchio: vivaizix.itch.io or vivaizix.tumblr.com/tagged/viv

fun CrossSkitch facts:
-i had the idea when searching for drawing apps on google play, i was surprised there wasn't a lot of themed drawing tools, and none like this
-i'm a super imprecise sewer, and never tried cross-stitching myself, so i was really hoping and am super glad that people who do embroider like it!
-someone 'supported'/donated on itchio (i love you β™₯), so along with help purchasing the engine, this is my first project i've made money on ever! in my life!! 😁😭🌈

It's a drawing tool styled after embroidery, inspired by my late great-grandma and my karelian heritage.

Mouse only, play in your browser!

i have no idea why every recipe for pierogi begs you to boil them before frying when they work perfect straight to pan? and if they break, the potato fries the hole closed instead of going into the water

@vivaizix adding a very nice click past the opening transition that lets you see the title on the first click and go to the main screen on second click and because it's this extra small thing that will make it so smooth, it's super satisfying

the cool thing about finishing with enough time even for bug fixing, is rather than getting bogged down in the middle with extra neat things i could add, i have to completely polish everything - and then i can clearly see what small tweaks would improve it.

yikes, i found the bugs i was waiting for once i messed with the release, and it requires an overhaul of the sound system
so crossing(pun unintended) my fingers that my idea for a fix'll work

another bump for the local timeline:

my project CrossSkitch is releasing on Tuesday! it's a browser based embroidery themed drawing tool.

if that sounds cool, give the official announcement a retoot instead of this one :) mastodon.art/@vivaizix/1005226

they DO have an irritating to find form for reporting someone else using an e-mail of yours that you're trying to attach to your account, which i used to report this e-mail. literally you can only get help if you intend on continuing to use the service.

it's so annoying how easily our old digital selves can be stolen and how little the corporations who own them care SO THAT'S my rage for the day

someone stole an old throwaway facebook of mine, and apparently facebook doesn't have a form for reporting hackers. :^)
you can go through the process to secure your account, requiring you to log in on a computer that has previously used the account. how tf old is fb and they expect everyone to have access to their old computers/still be using their accounts forever?
(rather, if someone isn't using their account anymore, it's more beneficial for FB to let a spammer use it Β―\_(ツ)_/Β― )
