So for the last 2 years I've been working on SideTrip, and recently... SideTrip got picked up by a publisher and its now part of a book titled Game Graphics Bible 2017. It's in Japanese (I'm Japanese) but the book is technically available. The link below is in Japanese, sorry.
Since it's a bit difficult to get this book anyway if you're living in the US/anywhere else especially, I'll snap some picts of the pages I'm involved in as an example. I can't snap other parts given it'd hit some copyright issues.
This is a pretty big deal... honeslty I didn't even think I'd get my work thrown into a book like this. The book also features some tripple A game titles like Halo 5 Guardians, Tekken, Monster Hunter Cross, so I'm surprised how they even picked up an individual artist like myself working on my spare time on a childhood dream I've had. It's so cool seeing your own work shelved between other big-name title art books in a typical bookstore here in Japan.
As for SideTrip, of course, it'll continue just as usual. And I really couldn't do SideTrip without the support from a bunch of you who've left comments, slapped me with critique, and even made new stuff out of it. Without your conversation, your chatter, your love and hate I wouldn't have been able to continue on a massive quest to develop something of this magnitude and quality. SideTrip is now entering its 2nd year of its run, and while I'm a slow-poke producing 1 picture a month, I hope you guys can stick around to see it all the way to the end.
Thanks so much NewGrounds.
