ProjectE #9: A glimpse at the mansion

This is a part of a background image for the new game, featuring the mansion where the noble family and their maids live. It’s very violet, isn’t it? And there are some strange pools of water in the front yard. Hmm… I’m sure that there is a perfectly good reason for all the strangeness.

Anyway, I’ve been spending most of my time drawing backgrounds lately. Although I try not to make too detailed images, it still takes quite a lot of time to make them. Sometimes I wonder why I don’t take the same shortcut as many indies and just use stock images to do the job. Well, I guess that the main reason for that is that the world I’m trying to create through my games wouldn’t feel quite as fascinating (to me) if it looked like a generic fantasy/isekai world.

Philosophical considerations about backgrounds aside, shouldn’t I be working on the upcoming update for Succubus Research Diary? To be honest, the update was already like 95% complete when I announced it. It’s just that since the first anniversary of the game is pretty close, I thought that I might as well release the update on that day.

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I have more backgrounds to draw.
