Finally, Some Progress!

So, it seems that I've missed another date. I was going to post early this week with a fun little sprite I made, but then I actually started getting work done on my map editor. Thus, I figured it was best to wait until the end of the week and post everything together.

Here's what's happened:

  1. I finally got around to drawing something for fun! It's quite small, but I actually had quite a bit of fun drawing this. 

One of my friends is a bit of a mad scientist, so I wanted to draw him as a proper one. Then, I just couldn't resist giving him an evil laugh.

2.  My new mouse came in. For the past few weeks, I've been stuck working on a laptop without a mouse. That all ended yesterday! To be more specific, I got one of these. So far, I've found it quite nice.

    3.  I've significantly improved my map editor, as I mentioned earlier. It now has these new features:
         -The pencil tool places tiles down in continuous lines. So does the eraser.
         -Added a flood fill tool, just like in my old map editor.
         -All of these tools are now selected with keyboard shortcuts.
         -I started working on a line tool, but it's still got its fair share of bugs.

I'm pretty happy with myself right now. I'm hoping this sudden burst of energy lasts me until vacation.
