Life for us here at Ithaqua Labs has been incredibly hectic recently, but we’re glad to finally say that we are settling down. Back from a two week trip that was a mixture of work and play, both of us have been hard at work drawing and writing!
Lots more voices have come in for Chapter 1, and auditions for round 1 of side characters will be closed as of this evening.
Johnathan Johnson has been pretty heavily composing music, and sending many WIPs and finals for us to listen to. I’m quite looking forward to adding the lovely songs to the game.
So as to help keep myself sane and on track, I’ve decided to finish everyone’s first sprite and outfit, and then work my way back around for second poses/outfits for those who are getting them. Yesterday and today I focused mostly on Krok, Mox and Aelfnod.
Everyone has been undergoing a slight rework/redesign as we’ve entered into full gear for Pale Spectrum, and you can see it pretty easily on Krok and Mox, and even on Aelfnod who now has a fuller body as I learn to draw the ever elusive male hips.
We are planning to set up another round of auditions for extras for chapter 1, as well as for the side characters that were added via Kickstarter. That should be happening within the next two weeks.
In the mean time, if you’re ever curious about the nitty-gritty, day-to-day endeavors of what goes into making Pale Spectrum, I have a Patreon.
Lots of polished art will still make it through Kickstarter’s updates, and various WIPs and videos that highlight important parts of the game will be still show up in the Art Book for Pale Spectrum, but rough sketches and progress shots will regularly hit my Patreon for those interested in such things!
I also live stream my art from time to time, and you get sneak peeks at Patreon only stuff there, or catch me doing Pale Spectrum art or commissions. Today I actually streamed for about 5 hours, during which time I did a Prude chibi, some isometric, desert cube blurbs for another game, and finished rendering Krok and Mox.
A track I shared awhile back on my Patreon which I’d like to share with you is Terra’s theme for the game. It’s one of my personal favorites and I hope you enjoy it as well.

That’s all for now, and I hope everyone is having a great week!
