 Character customization

By etix on August the 19th, 2007 under Ekaiyo project

In my first post you read my biggest role in Ekaiyo is working on the GUI. I already showed you how the Login screen will probably look like, but now I come with something different, you can find it here.

The picture shows the character customization frame. Here you will be able to fully customize your player model. It's still in beta, so a few things will be changed. At first, the menu on top of the screen are just words now, they will be replaced by icons. On the right side of the screen the model you are customizing will be shown.

Probably also the sketches of the hairstyles will be changed to pictures of 3d hairstyles.

Check my Blog page for more updates about the GUI. The upcoming weeks I will mainly work on the character customization interface.



 Introducing myself

By etix on August the 16th, 2007 under Ekaiyo project

Hi all.

ManTis asked me to introduce myself since probably only a few know me from the forums, so here i go.

I'm etix, 19 years old and I'm from the Netherlands. Studying Marketing & Communication in Amsterdam. I think there isn't much more you need to know from my personal life, so i'll say something about my work on the Ekaiyo project.

My job on Ekaiyo is taking care of all the 2D graphics. So basically this has everything to do with the GUI (frames, maps, icons, pokemon pictures, etc.) and promotion like banners and website (designed the z00ttheater website too).

There were already some screenshots on the forums of Ekaiyo, but to fresh up your mind (and for the people that didn't saw this screenshots) i'll start posting the Login screen. It will probably not be the final, from time to time i'll change things on it.

Here it is.

Hope you like it :),
